I guess you can say that I've been preparing for this book most of my life.
A great man once summed up the Arab-Israeli conflict as appetite versus starvation. We’ll revisit him a bit later…Indeed, the scope of his analogy goes far beyond what he thought
at the time, back in 1937, for the same Arab mindset which allows no room whatsoever for justice for Jews (one half of whom in Israel who were refugees from the so-called
"Arab"/Muslim World) also denies justice to scores of millions of other non-Arab peoples in the region as well...
This book does not attempt to be a tour de force regarding Arab-Israeli politics and history, although the author has spent quite a substantial portion of his life studying this
conflict in both academic and professional capacities. With the Middle East constantly making the news, there are plenty of the former available.
Rather, this book aims to provide the basics of the conflict to those being bombarded daily with news and misinformation coming out of this important region, and to place such topics
and issues into a much broader perspective--one too often ignored by those who should certainly know better.
