This book appears to be written from an anti-Israel, anti-Western and pro-Palestinian point of view. It definitely does not give equal representation of the conflict. This book only concerns itsef with the Palestinian suffering - even the cover indicates that! If an author must write about such a controversial subject for young readers, they must be completely objective to avoid bias. This book falls short of even attempting to do so.
