Peace Never?

About the book

The war in Palestine is propagated from generation to generation. Moshe Zimmermann names the culprits and, from this, concludes that there is a path towards a solution: turning away from the settlement policy, from the policy in Gaza to date and from Islamism and towards a two-state solution and increased support from the international community.

Jury evaluation

With “Peace Never?”, Moshe Zimmermann, one of the most important contemporary historians, makes an important, factual contribution to a discussion that is virtually unavoidable after the 2023 terrorist attack on Israel and the violent reaction to it. He expertly describes the decades-long vicious circle of violence and counter-violence and the clash of civilisations in his home country: between West and East, between Jews and Muslims, between violent and liberal groups on both sides. He also includes the Palestinian perspective and proposes a shared constitutional structure for both states. Offering a wealth of perspectives, this book is helpful for anyone who prefers to be informed before passing judgement.
