"President Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving the White House. He has stayed in touch with the major players from all sides in the conflict and has made numerous trips to the Holy Land, most recently as an observer in the Palestinian elections of 2005 and 2006." "In this book President Carter shares his intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his personal experiences with the principal actors, and he addresses sensitive political issues many American officials avoid. Pulling no punches, Carter prescribes steps that must be taken for the two states to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism.""The general parameters of a long-term, two-state agreement are well known, the president writes. There will be no substantive and permanent peace for any peoples in this troubled region as long as Israel is violating key U.N. resolutions, official American policy, and the international "road map" for peace by occupying Arab lands and oppressing the Palestinians. Except for mutually agreeable negotiated modifications, Israel's official pre-1967 borders must be honored. As were all previous administrations since the founding of Israel, U.S. government leaders must be in the forefront of achieving this long-delayed goal of a just agreement that both sides can honor."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

This book is dead honest. It's a must read if you are interested in the Palestinian quest for freedom. It's not a road map nor is it a solution but it's consideration of what is sustainable. The Palestinian people deserve to be free to live a life free of segregation and oppression and this book highlights in simple terms what it means to replace an increasing moral decay, brought by decades of Zionist ideology and brainwash, with a peace. Co-existence in which ever form IS possible but it is only possible when the Zionist apartheid regime is replaced with a government that promotes a radical change in the way Israeli view or should view their brothers and sisters the Palestinians. And that would be the first small step in a giant leap towards a reconciliation that certainly doesn't need any more water under the bridge.
Jimmy Carter is the only honourable president the USA has ever had. He's not the best writer but his heart is in the right place. He has shared his thoughts and views and facts about one of the most pressing political and humanitarian issues of our time, the freedom for the Palestinians and the end of the apartheid in Israel.

"The former president, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers an assessment of
what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel with dignity and justice
to Palestine. President Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel
and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving
the White House. He has stayed in touch with the major players from all sides
in the conflict and has made numerous trips to the Holy Land, most recently as
an observer in the Palestinian elections of 2005 and 2006. In this book Carter
shares his intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his
personal experiences with the principal actors, and he addresses sensitive
political issues many American officials avoid. Pulling no punches, Carter
prescribes steps that must be taken for the two states to share the Holy Land
without a system of apartheid of the constant fear of terrorism." --jacket

Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid by Jimmy Carter is a book I bought new ten years ago. Yes, it is that old. The middle east has more issues now but this book is about the Arab/Israeli situation then. The book starts out giving a history of the region going back thousands of years and how the region has changed leadership. President Carter then speaks personally about his trips to the middle east and what he sees, how he feels, what is said, who he talks with, etc. He is open and honest and shows the reader what he is up against politically and socially. It is a good lesson on both. Throughout the book, his love for peace and prosperity for both sides comes through. Not for one side over the other. I am not sure how the negative reviews found these things, I looked. I found none of this. Jimmy Carter presented himself as a President as someone that the USA could be proud of and he continues to do so. He is sweet and tenderhearted, working for the underdog, for peace, prosperity world wide, and has since he has left office. He didn't have to, he could just be sitting around and golfing but he is driven to do good for mankind and this book's pages express this. He is not the best writer but what he does write tells this. He let's his feels show honestly. He is a man that continues to this day, even with cancer, working for others. That is why I chose to read this book on his birthday, after all these years, because he may not be here much longer, and I wanted my review up to show that I did read it and I agree. Peace, not apartheid. Thank you Mr President for being a role model for all. ( )

About the author: Jimmy Carter was the United States President from 1977-1981 and has won the Nobel Peace Prize. He is a prolific author, having written twenty-three books on a variety of subjects. About the book: The reviewer for "Publishers Weekly" said of the work, "Thirty years after his first trip to the Mideast, former President Jimmy Carter still has hope for a peaceful, comprehensive solution to the region's troubles, delivering this informed and readable chronicle as an offering to the cause. . .Carter's book provides a fine overview for those unfamiliar with the history of the conflict and lays out an internationally accepted blueprint for peace." A new afterward is included and the book is well indexed.

This audio book was good. Carter has a unique perspective on the middle east turmoil as a born again Christian, a liberal politician, and the individual who almost single handedly negoited the only long lasting peace agreement between Isreal and an Arabic nation.

He begins with a very brief history of the region, from biblical times, to the safe haven from Nazi Germany, to today.

He went through all the various players, from the KJews, to the Palestienians to others throughout the world.

Unlike myself CRter gives great respect to the United Nations, but that's not enough for me to ignore all he says. The title is certainly meant to be controversial but the innerspring of the book are much more middle ofbthe road and shows how we all can work together.

But particularly foe American Christians that have been conservative PRO isreafrom the pulpit, it may be surprising to realize how many Palestienians are Christians and how the local government treats them so second class citizens.

Hamas has been listed as a terrorist organization by the United.S. Government, even though they provided social services before anything resembling a Palestienians state existed,and they've been democratically elected. It made me wonder how many other governments would label the GOP as a terrorist organization if given the chance.

While I am still a firm believer that the Holy Land needs a No State solution, Carters work provides good insight regardless of your political or religious persuasion and I recommend it in audio or dead tree format.

The book makes references to several maps, which obviously I can't do on audio, though the audio book indicates that the latter CD includes electronic resources such as a map, but I didn't bother putting it in my PC to verify. ( )

The Bible says that when the first blood was shed among His children, God asked Cain, the slayer, "Where is Abel thy brother?" And he said, "I know not. Am I my brother's keeper?" And the Lord said, "What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed..."
(GENESIS 4:9-11)
The blood of Abraham, God's father of the chosen, still flows in the veins of Arab, Jew, and Christian, and too much of it has been spilled in grasping for the inheritance of the revered patriarch in the Middle East. The spilled blood in the Holy Land still cries out to God—an anguished cry for peace.
—from The Blood of Abraham, by Jimmy Carter
