When the last tank stopped firing in the deserts of Iraq at the end of the Gulf War, the coalition of allies that defeated Saddam Hussein began to think in terms of solving the long-standing dispute between Israel and Palestinian Arabs. Thus was born a protracted peace process known simply as Oslo. Tragically, a decade of intense diplomacy and negotiation has given way to widespread violence: some analysts aware of the real potential of catastrophic war in the region, openly wonder if this will all lead to a "last war" of sorts. After 60 trips to the Middle East, David Allen Lewis brings an astonishing perspective to all this in his book, a laymen's guide to peace and conflict in the cradle of civilization. From his interviews with high-profile leaders like Ariel Sharon, to his decades of experience, Lewis provides the reader with a scintillating view of a region most of us know little about.
After seven years of "confidence-building" measures that are the framework of the Oslo Accords -- an ambitious attempt to bring Israelis and Palestinians to a final peace agreement -- the whole affair is unraveling.
Violence in the West Bank has accelerated dramatically since Yitzak Rabin and Yasser Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993. In this in-depth study of the peace process, the reader will learn little-reported facts about the peace process and the people involved, and will be able to see clearly that the latest confrontations are a prelude to a devastating conclusion.
