In 1948 Secretary of State George Marshall told President Truman he'd not vote for the president's re-election should he recognize Israeland warned that the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine would lead to war. More than 50 years later, war rages on, with America giving $3 billion annually in aid to Israel. Has America's one-sided policy led to terrorism on all sides?
Liza Elliott, Ph.D explains here the ways the truth about the Middle East has been covered upand runs contrary to everything Americans have learned. This book examines what politicians don't want you to know about U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and the reason Palestinian children find martyrdom attractive. She also discusses ways America has derailed the Palestinian statehood and supported ethnic and religious cleansingwhile sidestepping the Geneva Convention.
Dr. Elliott describes what life is like inside the occupied territories where America spends $10 million a day to push Palestinians off their land.

What People are saying about this
Jerry Levin, Former CNN Bureau Chief, Beirut, Lebanon: "'Finding Palestine' provides a significant map for those willing to take the road less traveled to truth and comprehension with respect to Palestine. Elliott's sentences are simple and short, yet they are bursting with passion, eloquence and factssomething only a true insider is in a position to convey. Essentially, however, this is a book about decent, courageous people struggling for recognition and justice."
Atallah Mansour, Christian-Arab journalist, Nazareth, Israel: "Liza Elliott's description of her work with the Red Crescent Society first in Beirut during the civil war and later in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Cairo, paints an authentic picture of the suffering Palestinians have endured these past decades. her story helps explain the roots of the conflict that has spread far beyond the confines of the Holy Land."
