President Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving the White House. He has stayed in touch with the major players from all sides in the conflict and has made numerous trips to the Holy Land, most recently as an observer in the Palestinian elections of 2006. In this book President Carter shares his intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his personal experiences of the principal actors, and he addresses sensitive political issues many British and American officials shy from. PALESTINE is a challenging and provocative book. Pulling no punches, Carter prescribes steps that must be taken for the two states to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism.

Carter, as always, is not afraid of the truth. Respect for Palestinian rights are, and always have been, *the* key to resolving our "war" on Islamic terror. Any one who wonders why peace in the Middle East, as well as in our more general relationships with the Islamic world, has proven so hard to achieve, should read this book. President Carter received a lot of criticism when this book came out, but - in my view - the harshness of the criticism is a true measure of how close to the mark he came. It's time the horrors of the Holocaust ceased to be the trump card that overrules fairness, justice and peace. Two wrongs, as the saying goes, do not make a right.

Excellent reading especially for those with little background on the Palestinian Israeli conflict. In my view this book is non bias and fair to both parties. Must read.

Finally... the Truth!
This is the book organizations like AIPAC... DO NOT want you to read! An in depth look at the history of Palestine and the Palestinians peoples conflict with its Israeli occupiers. Grim, harrowing but brutally honest. Our nations greatest elder statesman takes us where few other credible, unbiased and unabashed writers have ever had the "chutzpah" to do so. There's a reason the cries of "anti-semitism" followed the release of this volume as truth will always bring the same from any peoples whom would disavow anyone who dare speak, dare we say... the TRUTH!
Publishers Weekly, 2007-02-26 It's hard to use standard criteria to assess this book. Former President Carter is not a very good reader; his tone is flat, and his pronunciation sometimes difficult. Nor is he a literary stylist; there is neither music nor imagery in his down-to-earth sentences. But Carter feels strongly that what he has to say is absent from public discourse and policy decisions, and he knows that his status and voice provide authority to what might otherwise be rejected out of hand as anti-Israeli propaganda. He explains that Israel has never complied with U.N. Resolution 242 and others; has never lived up to its agreements made over the years in Washington, Oslo and elsewhere; continues to grab land through settlements and placement of a wall well within Palestinian territory; and still imprisons thousands of Palestinian men, women and children. While pointing out many murderous and counterproductive moves of Arafat and various Palestinian groups, he pointedly lays the blame for the current situation at the door of the Israelis and their Washington backers, with special venom for Bush and Rice, who have been mute on the subject for six years-even during the invasion of Lebanon. Many will dispute his facts and counter his views, but Carter maintains that if we really want to understand and promote change in this region, we must know both sides of the story.
