Ep 355: How to Understand Zionism, with Anne Perez

Summary – How to Understand Zionism, with Anne Perez

This is an episode from The Protestant Libertarian Podcast, where Alex Bernardo talks with Dr. Anne Perez about her brand-new book, Understanding Zionism (Fortress Press, 2023), which is a history of the modern Zionist movement and those who support and oppose it. In this conversation, Dr. Perez explains the history and diversity of the Zionist movement, why Israel as a nation has always struggled to maintain a balance between democracy and Jewish identity, Christian support for Zionism, the many groups that oppose Zionist ideas, and where the Zionist movement and the state of Israel are headed in the future. This was recorded two days before the October 2023 outbreak of violence between Israel and the Palestinians and provides critical historical context for understanding contemporary Middle Eastern politics.
