How does this book differ from most other contributions aiming at a solution to the Middle-East conflict and why does the author believe that his view can lead to a form of peace that will enable all parties to relax and reconcile?
The main difference may be the author’s decision to accord its due place to one of the most potent motivating powers in this part of the world, the religions.
Usually religions are excluded from political considerations. This is due to one of the basic postulates of international law.
For the same reason cultural history is also excluded – and yet Western civilization would not even be thinkable without the contributions of the Bible. Thus, the land of the Bible has a lasting relevance, a fact that merits acknowledgment, especially in regard to the people who brought forth the Bible, the Jews.
