Part of the Beginner's Guides series
The Middle East is in deadlock There are two sides in this conflict This is the only book that allows both sides to be heard THE PALESTINE PERSPECTIVE - DR DAWOUD EL-ALAMI "The creation of the state of Israel was at the expense of the Palestinians.
The indigenous Arab population of Palestine has been systematically discriminated against since the Balfour Declaration in 1917, which created Israel for the Jews at the expense of a native population, which has been denied its own nationhood and become a dispossessed, marginalized people." THE ISRAELI PERSPECTIVE - RABBI PROFESSOR DAN COHN-SHERBOK "Over the centuries, the Jews have been exposed to hatred and violence in many of the countries where they have settled.
What could be more justified than the creation of a homeland for the Jews in the land of their origins, Israel - a state where Jewish national identity can be recognized, and where the inhabitants can finally be safe from persecution?"With coverage of all the most recent events, this fully-updated edition of the essential bestselling guide to the Palestine-Israeli conflict explores the history, motivations and people behind a dispute that has been setting the Middle East ablaze for over sixty years.
