About the Author
TANYA REINHART is a professor of linguistics and cultural studies at Tel Aviv University and at the University of Utrecht.

In 1994, following the Oslo agreements, which she viewed as a painful deception of the Palestinian people, and the setting of a sophisticated Apartheid regime, she turned to political writing.

But it is reveling to read Tanya Reinhart, an expert on theoretical linguistics at Tel Aviv University, put forward all these facts about the conflict that has been hidden from the world community for more than half of a century. She also reveals what she calls "The Oslo Apartheid" and compares it with South Africans Apartheid system. It enlightes you I promise. It is objective and very well written.
She makes it clear that only an immediate and unconditional withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza can bring peace to the area. And she also states that in a 2002 survey 77 percent of Palestinians still agree that "both Israel and Palestine have the right to live in peace and security."
One of the most chocking facts are that the Israel's military force(taking order from the country's leaders), which is one of the most powerful in the world, also backed by the United States, deliberately shoots civilian Palestinians, not to kill, but to wound them and to practice. United States is of course the rouge state here. They block every UN resolution just to please the Jewish lobby in Washington D.C. And because of that Israel can continue to laugh at the UN Resolutions and crimes against the Geneva Conventions. It's a fact Serbians that committed war crimes face the Haag tribunal, but what about Israeli leaders, and of course Hamas terrorist.
To make peace USA HAVE to stop support Israel with money and guns. But as a student of international relations and political science at Halmstad University I recommend this book, it's great.
* The Oslo talks, Camp david, Beilin-Abu Mazen plan

* Inhumane conditions in the gaza strip and West bank.
* Lebanon's Hizabollah terrorist organisation.
* Israel's "Defensive shield" operation.
* Arafat as a weak and compromising leader.
* Issue of drawing state of palestine and dividing Jerusalem as capitals of both states.
On the whole this is a very sympathetic book from palestine point of view which says Isreal is purposely following a propoganda and wantedly administering self orchestrated terrorist bombing on civilians (authorised as per Israel Military) so as the gain an excuse to launch offsenive and extensive use of force counterstrikes against the palestinians in their enclosed electric fenced and caged refugee camps with air to surface warfare. Tanya claims the Israel's outlook into the whole affair is the mission of ethnic cleansing of Arabs from the Jewish community.Read more ›
