What Remains Of Israel by Naphtali Benyamin
|Title||What Remains of Israel|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
What Remains of Israel is a story about people. Naphtali Benyamin takes a candid look, beyond the nearly daily headlines of terror, into the lives of Israelis from several walks of life. Through the stories of both Jews and Arabs, the impact of the second intifada and its implications for peace in Israel are described in vivid terms. What Remains of Israel touches on the human aspect of a people besieged by the most evil form of terror. It tells their stores, their courage, but, above all, it tells of their hope and their desire for peace. Naphtali Benyamin explains Israel as few have. He argues Jerusalem's place in Islam, questioning its status in classical Islamic history. He explains how the government of Israel is structured and the social tension among Israel's religious, secular and Arab citizens; he examines the intentions of Hamas and presents an example of its negotiating strategy. His work is a careful analysis to describe what remains of Israel. What he found is enlightening.
