This entry in Voices From Israel examines Israel's geopolitical position in the Middle East and the Arab world. The status of many Palestinians as stateless people and refugees is often in the news. This book explains how this tragedy was created and is being perpetuated. The narrative examines Zionist chauvinism, Arab rejectionism, the long and convoluted search for peace, and the history of asymmetric warfare and terror. We'll look at Israel's relations with Egypt and Jordan - with whom it has peace treaties. We'll meet some Palestinians, including Palestinian Americans, and we'll encounter a symbol that evokes co-existence and peace.Parallel to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a war for public opinion. I encourage you, dear readers, to have an open mind and to avoid stereotypes as you seek to unravel the tangled truth. Peace begins in one's heart, and t from government decrees. Certainly t from propaganda. May we all merit to contribute to peace and understanding in the global village which is the planet Earth.
