A suscinct, clear, and amazingly informative view of the longest running occupation and conflict in the modern world. The book presents questions and answers that many Americans need to ask.
The author indicts all parties for the violence and distrust, but emphasizes that the Israelis have the money, the firepower, and above all, the backing of the United States, versus the Palestinians who have very little power, influence, or finances.
The book is forward looking as well - offering a realistic model of a two state solution at the end, acknowledging that getting to a just peace will not be easy, but it is doable.
Read this book if you have any concerns about the people on both sides of this 60+ year-old conflict, and discuss with your frlends, family, and our representatives.
