As Donald Trump’s trip to Israel renews questions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we highlight a noteworthy title, Resolving the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Perspectives on the Peace Process, edited by Moises Salinas and Hazza Abu Rabi.
The following is a quote from the book:
We cannot ignore the human element. As many of the authors have stressed, this is not simply a conflict about political issues, or even about abstract concepts like justice or safety. This is a conflict about real people driven by real emotions and feelings, such as fear, hatred, perceptions of injustice, and prejudice. It is also a conflict that exacts an enormous human toll––psychological, physical, and economical. It is important to frame our discussions in a way that recognizes the human element on both sides. Some of the essays in this volume, for example, stress how involving Arab-Israelis (who are politically marginalized but have a clear connection with the people on both sides of the conflict) in the negotiation process can be an important step to achieving that goal.
