Inside Israel-Palestine The Conflict Explained by Phyllis Bennis

Inside Israel-Palestine The Conflict Explained


Inside Israel-Palestine The Conflict Explained by Phyllis Bennis

To gain an understanding of the Israel-Palestine conflict you need to know the answers to some basic and fundamental questions: What are the occupied territories? , Who are the Palestinians? , What does pivotal position in global politics? Published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Six Days War , she also answers the some of the most difficult questions regarding the way forward to peace.


After many years seeing and reading about the Israel-Palestine conflict in the media and not quite understanding what it was about I decided to do some research. This book is perfect for that goal. It has a short question-answer format which clarifies the main points around this issue. It looks at the historical context, reasons behind the dispute, possible solutions and failed peace plans, other major countries involved in the dispute and future plans to resolve the conflict. It is very clearly written and leaves you with a greater understanding of this complex and on-going dispute. I'd highly recommend this for those who wish to know more about Israel-Palestine and middle east conflict. Amazon Customer Review (5 Stars)
