Jacobson uses his lofty intellectual perch in the media to go after anti-Zionists and others who wish to do harm to the Jewish state. A prestigious literary writer, his books often center around issues faced by the modern Jewish person. In 2010, Jacobson won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for his novel, The Finkler Question, a book that takes to task a character that very much mirrors British jazz musician Gilad Atzmon, a former Israeli who is now considered among the most ardent anti-Semitic anti-Zionists around.
