Reconciliation is difficult unless based on truth and it is the truths presented here - confirmed to me by other Israelis as well as by my observations - that have been systematically avoided by persistant propaganda that have impeded it.
It is ironic that the greatest long-term threat to the safety and security of Israel and Palestine is those Americans who most loudly and vociferously support Sharon's stated efforts to purge the entire land of Palestinians.
But it is reveling to read Tanya Reinhart, an expert on theoretical linguistics at Tel Aviv University, put forward all these facts about the conflict that has been hidden from the world community for more than half of a century. She also reveals what she calls "The Oslo Apartheid" and compares it with South Africans Apartheid system. It enlightes you I promise. It is objective and very well written.
She makes it clear that only an immediate and unconditional withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza can bring peace to the area. And she also states that in a 2002 survey 77 percent of Palestinians still agree that "both Israel and Palestine have the right to live in peace and security."
One of the most chocking facts are that the Israel's military force(taking order from the country's leaders), which is one of the most powerful in the world, also backed by the United States, deliberately shoots civilian Palestinians, not to kill, but to wound them and to practice. United States is of course the rouge state here. They block every UN resolution just to please the Jewish lobby in Washington D.C. And because of that Israel can continue to laugh at the UN Resolutions and crimes against the Geneva Conventions. It's a fact Serbians that committed war crimes face the Haag tribunal, but what about Israeli leaders, and of course Hamas terrorist.
To make peace USA HAVE to stop support Israel with money and guns. But as a student of international relations and political science at Halmstad University I recommend this book, it's great.
(1) why have Palestinian negotiators been so "stubborn" about agreeing to deals in which Israel returns up to 90% (or 97%, depending on what you read) of the land?
(2) why are extraordinary sums of U.S. tax dollars going to support such clearly visible oppression and killing of innocent people?
(3) why is Israel allowed to ignore all U.N. resolutions and keep international inquiries at bay?
(4) what are the U.S. media not telling us?
This book does NOT answer how those in the U.S. administration who fanatically decry destruction of a human embryo as "murder" can justify and support bulldozing homes with living human men, women and children inside.
(One reviewer of this book concerns herself almost entirely with the supposedly contradictory choice of the date 1948 rather than 1967 in the subtitle, but the author clearly states that she chose 1948 because that was when the current ethnic cleansing began.)
Many of us have seen the photograph of Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein (BEFORE Saddam became a 'bad guy'?). That image haunts me. What is the potential of Ariel Sharon, who openly flaunts his power and has at his fingertips numerous weapons of mass destruction?
