Overview


Sharon's election. The Second Intifada. Suicide bombings. Israel's reoccupation of the West Bank. President Bush's demand that Palestinians choose a new leadership. In this new edition, Marwan Bishara, a leading Palestinian commentator, analyses the situation since the failed Oslo Accords and argues that peace without justice is impossible. Israel may not yet recognise this fact, but one day it will have to - in the same way as de Klerk a decade ago had to do in apartheid South Africa.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Offering the Palestinian perspective on the roots of the Second Intifada, Bishara (Center for Policy Analysis on Palestine) criticizes Israeli state policy as essentially colonial; suggests that the United States is far from an "honest broker" in its continued support for Israeli militarism; and describes the Oslo peace process as a diplomatic effort to derail Palestinian aspirations for a viable state by imposing a series of noncontiguous cantonments in the West Bank and Gaza, divided by Israeli settler roads and lacking control over borders, airspace, and natural resources. He locates the source of the conflict in Israeli control over land and resources via military occupation, rather than some intractable religious hatred between Muslims and Jews. The situation of Palestinians living inside Israel is also briefly examined. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
