Obstacle to Peace

The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict



Why has peace in the Middle East remained so elusive?

Obstacle to Peace not only provides the answer, but also explains why you won’t hear it from U.S. government officials or the mainstream media. With incisive and provocative analysis, Jeremy R. Hammond provides a meticulously documented account that explodes popular myths and deconstructs standard narratives about the Israel-Palestine conflict. For anyone seeking a better understanding of the conflict’s root causes, the true reasons for its persistence, and the way forward, Obstacle to Peace delivers the knowledge and insights to effect the paradigm shift required to achieve justice and peace in the Middle East.

“Hammond’s book breaks new ground in ways that fundamentally alter our understanding of the conflict and how to resolve it.”

—Richard Falk, from the Foreword

“I found Obstacle to Peace quite convincing, but my pride in being Jewish and American, and my identification with many Israelis, remains intact.”

—Gene Epstein, from the Introduction
