Embracing Israel/Palestine: A Strategy to Heal and Transform the Middle East

by Rabbi Michael Lerner
£15.99   paperback  North Atlantic Books (2012)

Embracing Israel/Palestine: A Strategy to Heal and Transform the Middle East by Rabbi Michael Lerner A major modern conundrum is how the Arab/Israel conflict remains unresolved and, seemingly, unresolvable. In this inspirational book, Rabbi Michael Lerner suggests that a change in consciousness is crucial. With clarity and honesty, he examines how the mutual demonization and discounting of each sides’ legitimate needs drive the debate, and he points to new ways of thinking that can lead to a solution.
 
Lerner emphasizes that this new approach to the issue requires giving primacy to love, kindness, and generosity. It calls for challenging the master narratives in both Israel and Palestine as well as the false idea that “homeland security” can be achieved through military, political, economic, or media domination. Lerner makes the case that a lasting peace must prioritize helping people on all sides (including Europe and the U.S.) and that real security is best achieved through an ethos of caring and generosity toward “the other.” As many spiritual leaders have taught, problems like these cannot be solved at the same level at which they originated — one must seek higher ground, and that becomes a central task for anyone who wants a sustainable peace.
 
Embracing Israel/Palestine is written for those looking for positive, practical solutions to this ongoing dilemma.
