The Bloody Saga: Palestinians, Zionists and the Creation of Israel

William Hare, Author Madison Books $24.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-56833-007-5
This dramatic, vigorously written chronicle seeks to illuminate the Arab-Israeli conflict by tracing the histories of Jews and Arabs over the millennia. Hare, a freelance journalist and lawyer, focuses on key personalities such as Muhammad, Einstein, Hitler, T. E. Lawrence, Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weizmann, David Ben-Gurion and post-WW II anti-Zionist British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin in a narrative that sweeps from Biblical times through WW II, the Holocaust and the creation of Israel to the Persian Gulf War. Hare traces the roots of Zionism to the Jews' ``burning psychological need for identity'' on a soil of their own. Recognizing Palestinian Arabs' yearnings and aspirations, he calls for continued negotiations to bring peace to the Middle East, without offering specific suggestions as to the course peace talks should take.
