The conversation and journey move backward and forward across time, including the end of the Second World War as they watch the State of Israel's birth out of a narrow and critical vote in the United Nations in 1947. Join them as they walk through the narrow streets of a divided Jerusalem, unified twenty years later as a result of the Six Day War in 1967. After half a century of continuous conflict between Israel and her Arab neighbors, the author questions Herzl about his dream and if, with the benefit of hindsight, he now regrets his vision.
Set against the tapestry of one of the most tragic and traumatic periods in Middle Eastern history, this book will fascinate those who support the ideals of Zionism, as well as those who oppose it, Jew and Arab alike, and those who look on as they witness the quest for peace in our time.
