From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Iron Wall: Zionist Revisionism from Jabotinsky to Shamir is a 1984 book by the American Trotskyite Lenni Brenner. It is a highly critical account of the development of Revisionist Zionism. The name of the book is a reference to an essay written by Ze'ev Jabotinsky in 1923.[1]

Reception[edit]

Anti-Zionist activist Uri Davis wrote in Race and Class journal in 1985 that The Iron Wall suffered from "pseudo-Freudian causal explanations" and "repeated irresponsible political statements verging on the nonsensensical".[2]
