Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.

PALESTINE PEACE NOT APARTHEID By Jimmy Carter published by Simon & Schuster ISBN 13:978 0 7432 8502 5 price 17.99 [pounds sterling] hardback

President Jimmy Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East aft-airs 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 the former president, and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers an assessment of what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel and dignity and justice to Palestine.

He 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 to achieve this long-delayed goal of a just agreement that both sides can honour, for the two states to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism.
