The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle EastThe Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East by Caroline Glick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“A manifesto that exposes the flaws in the tw0state policy of the United States toward Israel and the Palestinians and offers a direct and powerful call for Israeli sovereignty in the region.”

This book, The Israeli Solution: A one-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, is perhaps one of the most insightful books written about the generations-old “problem” of what to do with the Israeli’s and the Palestinian’s.

Little did I realize that so much of the Christian persecution that occurs is not just in those areas of the globe that we might deem hostile to Christians.
