In 1947 the United Nations voted to partition Palestine into two states - one Arab and one Jewish. But the vote was not unanimous. Since declaring its independence in 1948 in its traditional homeland, the Jewish state of Israel has been in nearly constant conflict. The authors in this book explore the founding of Israel, potential solutions to the Arab-Israeli dispute, America's relationship with the Jewish state, and the question of its right to exist.
