Publisher's Description

Violence in Israel and Palestine has become the norm.

Do we even understand this conflict? Do we know where it comes from?

Why can't the two sides reach agreement? Can Jews and Palestinians find a way to coexist?

An American Jew, Mark Braverman thought he understood the reasons for Israel's existence. But when he visited the region and began to understand the forces that are fueling and perpetuating the conflict, he realized just how far we are from achieving peace.

From the bustling communities on either side of the Jerusalem barrier, to the historical lessons of the Nazi Holocaust and South African apartheid, to the foremost voices in theology and conflict resolution today, Braverman answers the questions above and offers a course of action both at home and abroad to realize peace.


Author Bio

Mark Braverman is an internationally known author and activist on the role of faith traditions in bringing healing and peace to the Israel/Palestine conflict. A Jewish American with deep family roots in the Holy Land, Braverman was transformed while traveling in Israel in 2006 by witnessing the occupation of Palestine and by encounters with peace activists and civil society leaders from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities. He now devotes himself full-time to writing, speaking and action related to a just peace in Israel/Palestine. Braverman is the author of Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews, and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land. More of Mark's writings can be found at www.markbraverman.org.
