In this fully revised and updated version of his highly acclaimed book The Obstruction of Peace: The United States, Israel and the Palestinians, Naseer H. Aruri dismantles the many myths about the failed Middle East "peace process."
Aruri analyzes the evolving relationship between the United States and the two protagonists - the Palestinians and Israel - and argues that the US government, rather than serving as an "honest broker," has allowed Israel to use violence and violate international law to maintain its illegal occupation.
As a result of its massive military, economic, and political support for Israel, Palestinians continue to be denied their fundamental right to self-determination and justice.
