What makes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict so intractable? Reflecting both Israeli and Palestinian points of view, this provocative volume addresses the two powerful, bitterly contested, competing historical narratives that underpin the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Compelling contributions by Israeli and Palestinian authors show how the intertwined reckonings of the historical past - history's double helix - provide powerful ammunition for current battles. Just when a resolution of the conflict might seem to be on the horizon, the gulf of history resurges to separate the contenders.

The well researched and presented views in this collection of essays from sociologists, psychologists and historians was superb and, rare in this usually emotionally and ideologically charged territory, balanced. Naturally, the essayists identified balance with the possession of power, and this accounted for the fact that the Palestinian essays were far more partisan and ideological (and this is true of other pro-Palestinian activism as well) than the Israeli ones. Indeed, some of the Israeli essays attempted to use the "bridge narrative" concept, which meant that, in essence, the facts of history were bent or rearranged in order to facilitate Israeli-Palestinian dialogue. Will this work? Most were either implicitly or explicitly doubtful. For instance, two psychologists, Israeli and Palestinian, respectively, disagreed with the bridge concept idea, and appeared to accept the overall impression that reading this essays gave; namely, that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a deeply embedded one that will take a very long time to work out. Palestine lacks a democracy, and Israel coherent democratic will. Settling this matter will be the long and bitter work of another 40 years but, when the end comes, it will come suddenly, but as the result of changes that had not been on the "front pages." It could be something like the Middle East in general running out of water and, in consequence, there being the rise of genuinely democratic movements that will find in this conflict a meaningless distraction and move to end the illusions of victory by both parties but, especially, the Palestinians. Israel will never be pushed into the sea. There will never be a "greater Israel." The Israelis will be made to abandon their current settlements. The parties will endure much suffering and death on the way to accepting these humble truisms. Both are suffering from an inflated sense of their importance and it would help if the world stopped conniving with them in this narcissism.

This is a very useful book for anyone who wants to understand the roots of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Each side tells the story in a way that blends fact, emotion, and a particular point of view. It's hard to build relationships with others when we don't have an understanding of how differently they view reality.

"Palestine" is an English name invented by 19th century European Christians based on the Latin name "palaestina" the Romans renamed Israel in the 2nd century, referring to the Philistines who were ancient enemies of the Jews, originating from Greece. The Roman Latin name "palaestina" derives from the Hebrew name "Peleshet" appearing in the Jewish Bible, also referring to the "land of the Philistines," meaning invaders to Israel.

Exodus 15:14 The peoples have heard. They tremble. Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Peleshet

Why would so-called palestinians, who are Arabs and most of whom are Muslims, identify by a European Christian English term for a Latin term that was imposed on Israel by Roman pagans based on a Hebrew term in the Jewish Bible for Greek invaders [Philistines]to Israel?

Narratives of conflict?

What's that supposed to mean? Does it mean that some folks have a bunch of anecdotes which they use to present a somewhat misleading picture of reality while others have a bunch of anecdotes which they use to present a horribly misleading picture of reality?

What we need are truths, not "narratives."

Yes, a bunch of people who committed crimes and fought as aggressors have "narratives." But that does not negate the reality of what happened. Sure, those families in the American South who fought to deny human rights to Black slaves have a narrative. And they suffered. But that would not get me or any other honest person to consider the emancipation of the slaves a catastrophe! The emancipation of the slaves was a triumph for human rights that has been a benefit to society as a whole. The victory over National Socialism was a similar triumph. The lifting of the siege of Jerusalem in 1948 was another such triumph. If we instead call it (or the existence of human rights for Jews in Israel) a "catastrophe," we're being both insulting and dishonest. And I think that some of the contributors in this book are encouraging such dishonesty.

In order to reduce strife, I think we do need to focus on truth. But that is not the same thing as accepting lies! I know that it is very difficult to admit that one is wrong if one wants to fight. But it is also difficult to admit that one is right if one wants to be diplomatic. And I think we need to strive to be more honest, and value truth whether one has been right or wrong.

There are some things in this book that I did find interesting. Mordechai Bar-On had some things to say about Israel from his perspective, and reasons why such people as Flapan or Zertal are unlikely to be taken seriously by most Israelis. In addition, he makes the excellent point that some Arabs like Israeli revisionist history because they feel it admits the truth of some Arab claims (I might call it the truth of some Arab falsehoods). Instead, he thinks that Arabs ought to see it as a call to try some revisionist history of their own, and reconsider some of the more dubious things they've tended to agree upon in the past.

Does this one good point make the book worth two stars rather than one? Definitely not. Its entire theme is no good.
