Amos Oz is a leading figure in the Peace Now movement. After the Six Day War in 1967, he was one of the first voices in Israel to advocate partitioning the land between Israel and the Palestinian state in the context of peace and security.

Publishers Weekly, 1989-09-29 Although Israeli writer Oz calls it ``a deadly enemy,'' he nevertheless urges Israelis to talk peace with the PLO and work toward the creation of a demilitarized Palestinian state alongside Israel. Written between 1982 and 1988, these articulate, impassioned articles and speeches include pieces on ``that righteous gentleman'' Kurt Waldheim; the Austrian origins of tens of thousands of Nazis; Claude Lanzmann's Holocaust film Shoah ; the 1984 hijacking of a bus by Arab terrorists; the weakening of the Labor party; the search for peace. Oz, a leader of the Peace Now movement, condemns Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon as a perverted use of power. He fears Israel is on the verge of becoming a stagnant society, one conditioned by fear, that lives in the past. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
