As a politician in Israel's Knesset, Danny Danon has been a vocal opponent of disengaging in the Gaza Strip and West bank, and transforming the stalemate 'two state/one state' dialogue to include regional partners, at times standing in direct opposition to his own party's leadership. A well-known and frequent speaker in the global arena, he is the rising voice for a fresh movement toward nationalism among the generation of Israelis currently coming to power. Here, Danon shares this vision with the world. It is a bold and uncompromising stance in the face of attacks on Israel's sovereignty by other Middle Eastern nations as the United States sends mixed signals of support to further its own goals in the region. Danon dissects the missteps and wrong turns that Israel's politicians have taken in the past by working to appease the United States and not offend their neighbors, instead of prioritizing their nation's own viability. With electrifying zeal, he tackles the challenges Israel faces today to undo what he sees as a consequence brought on by years of acquiescence to US policy.
Danon believes "US pressure on Israel is hurting Israel and will do nothing to advance peace," and he is not afraid to sever the close bond between the United States and Israel if it means peace for his homeland.
