5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and informative - a real eye opener., 30 May 2010
This review is from: Forty Years in the Wilderness: Inside Israel's West Bank Settlements (Paperback)
o
A fascinating account of why people arrive and stay in settlements on the West Bank, and the emormous political and human damage they reap in so doing. From Ben Yeshai a hippy type religious man who really just wants somewhere to bring his kids up, to Ginette whose daughter was killed in a suicide bomb attack, from Nadia Matar a zealous fanatic, to Benny Raz who is looking for money from the Israeli government to compensate those who want to move away from the settlements. . .The authors of this book travel from settlement to settlement talking to the original pioneers, the gun-toting zealots and those who simply come for the cheap housing. Through their work we are able to meet some of the Israelis who are causing one of the worlds worst atrocities. If understanding can help, then everyone who cares about peace in the Middle East should read this book. It will leave a lasting impression on me.
