An in-depth expose of the deep-seated problems underlying the seemingly intractable impasse in the Middle East that has grid-locked Israel, the Arab world, and the Western nations for the better part of a century. Written by a former private investigator and corporate consultant, this unconventional look at the players, their psychology, and their history reveals the unseen side of the West's co-dependency on Israel -- why the real problems responsible for the ongoing tragedy have consistently been covered up and denied, why compromise is fundamentally impossible, and why diplomatic and political efforts to resolve the conflict are doomed to perpetual failure and disaster. None of the proposed solutions has ever had a chance of success, because ne of them has ever had anything to do with the problems that actually exist. Those problems must be recognized and addressed if there is to be any hope of stability in this critical and vital region. Essential reading for everyone who supports Israel and its right to exist, as well as for everyone concerned with the future of the entire Western world.
