Violence in Israel and Palestine has become the norm.
Do we even understand this conflict? Do we know where it comes from?
Why can't the two sides reach agreement? Can Jews and Palestinians find a way to coexist?
An American Jew, Mark Braverman thought he understood the reasons for Israel's existence. But when he visited the region and began to understand the forces that are fueling and perpetuating the conflict, he realized just how far we are from achieving peace.
From the bustling communities on either side of the Jerusalem barrier, to the historical lessons of the Nazi Holocaust and South African apartheid, to the foremost voices in theology and conflict resolution today, Braverman answers the questions above and offers a course of action both at home and abroad to realize peace.
