9780932727978: Finding Palestine: One American's Trek from the Midwest to the Middle East

In 1948 Secretary of State George Marshall told President Truman he'd not vote for the president's re-election should he recognize Israel--and warned that the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine would lead to war. More than 50 years later, war rages on, with America giving $3 billion annually in aid to Israel. Has America's one-sided policy led to terrorism on all sides?
Liza Elliott, Ph.D explains here the ways the truth about the Middle East has been covered up--and runs contrary to everything Americans have learned. This book examines what politicians don't want you to know about U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and the reason Palestinian children find martyrdom attractive. She also discusses ways America has derailed the Palestinian statehood and supported ethnic and religious cleansing--while sidestepping the Geneva Convention.
Dr. Elliott describes what life is like inside the occupied territories where America spends $10 million a day to push Palestinians off their land.
