Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jeremy Hammond's carefully documented and highly informative study of how Washington has joined Israel in undermining the efforts to achieve a peaceful political settlement of the Israel-Palestine conflict is a welcome and timely contribution, and one that focuses directly on a salient issue, all too often evaded." - Noam Chomsky, Author of Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians

"This important book documents Washington's complicity in, and coverup of, Israel's theft of Palestine." - Paul Craig Roberts, Former Editor of the Wall Street Journal "Successive American administrations from both parties have doomed Palestinians to a series of Bantustans in the West Bank and what amounts to an open air prison in the Gaza Strip. In turn, Washington has emboldened right-wing forces in Israel, plunging the country into a zero-sum game with no clear resolution in sight. Over the course of a book that is as meticulously detailed as it is readable, Jeremy Hammond explains how the US approach he correctly identifies as rejectionist is closing the door on peace in the Holy Land. We must learn the historical lessons Hammond outlines in Obstacle to Peace before that door is nailed shut for good." - Max Blumenthal, Author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel

"Jeremy Hammond is a fearless independent journalist who does not allow hypocrisy and maneuvers to escape his critical eye. His book Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is a sharp analysis of America's Middle East policy which shields Israel's crimes against Palestinians. This book should be read by anyone interested in knowing about the agony of Palestinians." - Deepak Tripathi, Author of Imperial Designs: War, Humiliation and the Making of History

"I read Obstacle to Peace with great interest. Hammond is a knowledgeable and insightful writer. His analysis is sharp and original, refusing to allow mythology to supersede reality. We often discuss Israel-Palestine with too little attention to the central role of US policy. This book illustrates why such an omission is a terrible mistake." - Steven Salaita, Author of The Holy Land in Transit: Colonialism and the Quest for Canaan

"Outstanding. This highly informative and meticulously researched book is a valuable resource for every scholar and activist. The flair with which the book has been written makes it accessible to those who are not as familiar with the Israel-Palestinian issue but who are eager to perfect their knowledge. Hammond's illuminating and invaluable book deserves a wide audience." - Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, Independent Foreign Policy Analyst

"In Obstacle to Peace, Mr. Hammond provides a meticulously documented and compelling narrative of the long running Israel-Palestine conflict and the role that the United States has played in thwarting potential solutions. This work not only tells the story but also provides a valuable research vehicle for policy makers and commentators alike. It is a must for every bookshelf on this topic." - Donald Liebich, Author of Fault Lines: The Layman's Guide to Understanding America's Role in the Ever-Changing Middle East

"When I first came to Palestine in 2003, I was naive in many ways and had to start from the beginning. My previous work in South Africa helped to open up my eyes and see the deepening of apartheid in the Middle East, but what was missing was a book like Obstacle to Peace. The book is a bridge to a real peace process, unlike the vacuous diplomacy that continues while the colonization and theft does not stop and the apartheid is manifested. Obstacle to Peace helps those of us concerned with peace and justice to be firmly rooted when we speak out." - Mats Svensson, Former Swedish Diplomat and Author of Crimes, Victims and Witnesses: Apartheid in Palestine"
