Chronicle of a War Foretold: How Mideast Peace Became America's Fightby Norman Spector
Synopses & Reviews
This prescient narrative reveals how crumbling Mideast relations dashed the promise of peace and fostered the terrorist movement. Norman Spector previous Canadian ambassador to Israel documents how the inability to gain peace in the Mideast has caused death and destruction far outside Israel and the contested Palestinian lands, with the ominous promise of more to come. Based on his firsthand experiences with the major players and events, from the Rabin assassination through 9/11 and the war on Afghanistan, Spector analyzes how the same forces and beliefs that led to the downward spiral in relations between Israelis and Palestinians spawned the bombing of the World Trade Center in Manhattan.
Provides a collection of columns on the conflicts in the Middle East, their relationship to the United States, and the factors that lead to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
