Reframing the Palestine/Israeli conflict
by Bill Williamson
Israel relies for its survival on its lucrative arms trade and American military support.
Meanwhile, the Palestinians suffer poverty and destitution as an occupied nation. Indeed, were it not for vast international financial support, the Palestinians would face starvation.
Any solution is impossible while Israel pursues an aggressive programme of settlement, expansion and ethnic cleansing.
The author rejects the two state solution, which he likens to Apartheid. In a convincing fact-based analysis, he shows that a better future is achievable for both peoples: one that is secular, democratic, bi-national, culturally vibrant and economically successful.
Dr Williamson is Emeritus Professor of Continuing Education, Durham University and was involved in the University’s Centre for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies. A fact-finding visit to Israel/Palestine in 2013 led to him writing this book.
