After recently hearing, to my surprise, Osama Bin Laden recommend Jimmy Carter's book "Peace Not Apartheid"...
Well I was curious, I didn't expect that at all coming from a raving lunatic terrorist as he is painted as.
I had started reading his other book, "Sharing Good Times", and a few chapters in, I gave it back to my aunt. I found it boring, and didn't really
have any flow to it, just a mishmash of memories. Not my kind of book at all.
I was worried that this book would have the same style to it. I am pleasantly surprised so far, and to be honest, I agree with what I have read thus
far. This right here really sums it up for me, and it is in the first chapter:
Three most basic premises are quite clear:
1)Isreal's right to exist within recognized borders - and to live in peace - must be accepted by palestine.
2)Killing of noncombatants inside Isreal, Palestine, and Lebanon by bombs, missile attacks, assassinations, and other acts of violence cannot be
3) Palestinians must live in peace and dignity in their own land as specified by international law, unless modified by good-faith negotiations with
That right there prettymuch sums it up. Isreal must give back land that was stolen, and stop occupying Palestine property. Land grabs for settlements
must be stopped, and reversed to the rightful borders. Both sides need to chill the hell out. That is the only chance they have at peace.
Thank you Osama Bin Laden for recommending this book and piquing my curiosity. Has anyone read this book? Does it stay good throughout the whole thing
or fall to mush after the first chapter?
