Since 2000, the cycle of bloodshed and retribution has spiraled increasingly out of control. Quigley attributes the breakdown of negotiations in 2000 to Israel’s unwillingness to negotiate on the basis of principles of justice and law. He argues that throughout the last century, established tenets of international law—and particularly the right of self-determination—have been overlooked or ignored in favor of the Zionists and then the Israelis, to the detriment of the Palestinians.In this volume, Quigley provides a thorough understanding of both sides of the conflict in the context of international law. He contends that the Palestinians have a stronger legal claim to Jerusalem than do the Israelis; that Palestinian refugees should be repatriated to areas including those within the borders of Israel; and that Israel should withdraw from the territory it occupied in 1967. As in his earlier volume, Quigley provides an extensively documented evaluation of the conflict over the last century, discussing the Zionist movement, the League of Nations’ decision to promote a Jewish homeland in Palestine, the 1948 war and creation of Israel, and Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Golan Heights during the 1967 war....

    I read this book after I had read The Case For Israel because for my exhibition I also needed to know how Palestine's people felt about the conflict. The book was very similar to the previous book I had read, same format, very simple to read and was able to find all the information needed for my topic. Each question per chapter was presented with lots of evidence. It was great that I found this book because writing my exhibition paper would have been difficult with only Israeli's thoughts and nothing coming from the Palestinian side. I used the two books to compare the clashing ideas and incorporated the evidence into my paper.

    Brilliant... read it together with Dershowitz's "The Case for Israel" followed by "The Case for Peace"
