    I had picked this book up last year on my visit to Israel and Palestine as an evaluator The experience of standing before the huge wall that separates sections of the Palestinian population from their lands and livelihoods was overwhelmingAlthough my evaluation report on the Palestine Programme of UNCTAD has been submitted a while ago my interest in understanding the origins of the longest conflict in our post World war existence remained unsatiated I wanted to know about the Palestinians' and Israelis' mutually intrangisent views on peaceful co existenceReturning to the book after a year I find it highly informative It provides insights into the perspectives of both sides Of course one cannot judge the writer on bias and leaning toward any one side for the passion and pain involved make it impossible to be fully dispassionate in the matter especially if you happen to be one of the two parties Also the most authoritative accounts on the subject have only been written by scholars of Arab or Jewish lineage Bias is inherent and pardonable Reading through the value of the book is in its enabling the outsider an independent impression My takeaway the three biggest complications in the Israel Palestine issue are a the issue is not one merely for statehood it is rooted in a core religious claim and securing a divine birthright; bthe stand of the US at the UN Security Council caught in its own internal lobbyism by the powerful Jewish lobby and c most unfortunately the religious branding of terror which I feel imposes another unfair judgement on the issue and clouds the thinking on the statehood issueA solution to this uniue situation cannot come from the machinations of politics or the flexing of power Instead the I ponder the I am convinced that the answer is in tolerance and love once the wounds have been covered with the tissue of a new generation As one of few Indians that have been to Jerusalem Bethlehem Al Asa Gaza and Ramallah I noted with interest a rally that was based on Mahatma Gandhiji's principles A useful read among others Eually important to read the Israeli side of the argument

    This book and Ilan Pappe's Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine I highly recommend for explaining the conflict and why we have failed to see a solution The one state solution is discussed and advocated I agree and enjoyed the rarely discussed nuance of binational versus secular democratic as well as the suggestions of Belgian Czech and other models Leaders of this so called peace process in the uartet should have a look at both books

    I cannot comment on this book objectively Just because the book is not objective neither There are some points that are factually accurate some are less but the sole point from the book namely blaming the existence of Israel for the undemocratic military regimes in the Middle East The idea specifically redundant as proven in my view by the events of so called 'Arab Spring'

    Having been to Israel about ten years ago I could understand Karmi's view of the IsraeliPalestinian situation The Palestinians are an oppressed people and it doesn't seem possible for the Israelis to change their attitude to the Palestinians as a people with rights and privileges It is a dilemma

    uite an eye opening perspective to read as an American Jew who went on birthright though difficult to distance the author's personal perspective and experience from the argument put forth Her bitterness however seems to be not a flaw but a uality of the book that further helps to bring to light the convoluted and charged nature of the issue

    most of the subject matter covered by Karmi is well known especially to people on the left She makes a fair amount of valid points but by the end it is basically pretty basic stuff or what is worse apologetic of groups like Hamas Her main proposition for fixing the problem is a very interesting one a common state for Palestinians and Jews but it is doubtful if it can come to being
