Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
In autumn 1993, the Oslo Agreements were signed by Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, marking the beginning of promise for a constructive peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The ten years that followed were charted first by hope and optimism only to deteriorate into revenge and violence. Throughout this decade David Grossman has published articles in the American and European press, written in a personal voice - father, husband, peace activist, novelist - as he witnesses devastating events, he cries out with a prophetic wisdom, imploring both sides to return to sanity, to negotiations. The publication of this collection of articles will mark ten years to the dream of Oslo.

This is all admirable. But Grossman as a member of the far left Israel 'peace camp' also is guilty and fails in his fundamental perception of the conflict. He and the Left supported Oslo and Arafat without understanding that from the beginning they were dealing with someone who had no intention of making real peace with Israel.
Grossman in his effort to be fair and balanced has long tended to misread reality, underplay Palestinian destructiveness and misread Israeli defensive efforts.
This of course is not his take on the conflict. He sees dream of the future this way.
"Neither romantic love, then, nor a high wall. I dream of two countries separated by a distinct border. A border that will make clear to each state the space in which it exists as a political entity, as a national identity. If there's a border, there is an identity. There is a new living reality in which this identity can bleed out the poison of illusions and begin to heal.
One more important thing: This is a condition in which-years from now-the two sides will be able to give themselves a new kind of definition-not one contrasted with an enemy, but one that turns inward. One dependent not on the fear that they might be destroyed but instead on the natural development of a nation..
Considering what has happened in the years since this book has been written one wonders how Grossman could have ever expected such a resolution. The Palestinians have run from statehood as it would involve responsibilities and limitations they just do not want to bear. They have preferred economic ruin and chaos to cooperation with Israel.
They have proven Grossman too to be even with all his reservations and realism a dreamer who just was not willing to see the reality in front of his face.
