Israel and the Middle East

Excerpt

At the heart of the Middle Eastern crisis lies the unsolved Arab-Israeli feud. So deep running is the hostility between the two peoples, that United States policy cannot aim directly at a solution of the problem. It aims, instead, at the creation of those economic and political conditions in the Middle East which, over the long run, may at least persuade the Arabs to sit down and negotiate with Israel.

Because the Middle East cannot become stable until Arabs and Israelis live in peace, and because the Mideast is the new testing ground between East and West, the author offers this fresh study of the inception, development, and present status of the Palestine problem. It is based on firsthand observation of conditions on both sides of the armistice lines over a three-year period, during which time I was the Middle East correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor.

This book is offered against the background of the immense importance of the Middle East, whose oil reserves and strategic location make the area vital to the free world.
