Equitably sharing the Middle East between Arabs and Jews was once embraced by the world.
In this eye-opening book attorney David Naggar makes the case that the international consensus solution, two States—one Israeli, one Palestinian—within the confines of Israel, Gaza and the West Bank—is based on fatally flawed assumptions. With the aid of 30 maps, Naggar persuasively argues that even if two such States could be delineated by fiat, doing so would not produce a lasting peace. It would endanger the lives of some, and ruin the lives of many—Palestinians and Israelis alike.
Naggar begins the book by showing the reader how the overarching Arab/Muslim-Israeli conflict has been simplified to the point where only Palestinian statelessness and Israel’s security needs are discussed. He establishes that Palestinian Arab needs are not being met, and that Israel’s need to be viable has not been considered by the international community since 1920, when multiple Arab States took root, and the much larger original borders of what was to become British Mandate Palestine—a homeland for the Jews—were agreed upon.
In this thought-provoking book, David Naggar lays the foundation for a new approach to solving this conflict. Fairly sharing the Middle East will not only serve the interests of peace in the long run, but will also greatly benefit humanity otherwise.
