New book, 64 pages. This book describes the ongoing struggle for land, power, and cultural and religious survival between the Jewish nation of Israel and the Palestinian and other Arabic-speaking people of the Middle East. Beginning with the contradictory promises that Great Britain made to the Arabs and Jews about Palestine during World War II, this area of the world has been - and continues to be - a land in dispute. Wars, protests, and multiple acts of terror have been punctuated by attempts at peace agreements, often brokered by the United States. This book tells the history of that conflict, and it explores why the people of the region continue their struggle with one another as they seek peace, cultural and religious autonomy, and prosperity.
