The Case for Peace free pdf The author of the New York Times bestseller The Case for Israel charts a controversial but crucial path to peace in the Middle East In the bestselling The Case for Israel, Alan Dershowitz used all his skills as an advocate to defend the Jewish state against the lies and distortions that have been hurled at it in recent years. The success of this book hailed as "a lively, hotly argued broadside" by the Washington Post and "revealing and persuasive" by the Times (London) has made him one of America's most sought-after commentators on Israeli-Palestinian relations. Now, as the region reacts to the death of Yasir Arafat, Dershowitz outlines a new opportunity for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. All reasonable people, he argues, know what the end result will look like: two states, based on Israeli withdrawals from Gaza and most of the West Bank- a symbolic recognition by Israel of the rights of Palestinian refugees, with some compensation but no "right of return"- the division of Jerusalem- and a renunciation of violence, with the Palestinians taking all reasonable measures to stamp out terrorism. The problem: how to get there without more bloodshed. To that end, Dershowitz offers a plan that is bound to be controversial. Israel, he says, must take the lead in showing generosity of spirit. The Palestinians must take explicit, practical steps to turn their people against suicide bombers and hate. The U.S. must help bankroll the peace. And the polemical approach to Israeli-Palestinian relations must end on university campuses, at the U.N., in Europe, and in the media. For anyone who cares about the fate of Israel and the Middle East, this thought-provoking road map to peace will be required reading. Alan Dershowitz (Boston, MA), the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, is one of the country's foremost appellate lawyers and a distinguished defender of civil liberties. His many books include the New York Times bestseller The Case for Israel (paper: 0-471-67952-6- cloth: 0-471-46502-X). He has been profiled and interviewed widely in the media and has written for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and many other newspapers and periodicals.
