Within the pages of this book our history of pursuing peace is encapsulated. Bringing a just peace is by far not the easiest path one could take. To sit idly by and watch the world saunter on is often too easy and unfulfilling. It is without a doubt that this book will break the yoke of apathy and inspire every person to embark on a journey that would bring a just and lasting peace. To those who have put their heart in to this book, it was a journey well worth it. To those of you who will be inspired to accept the enormous responsibility of striving for a just peace, you are not alone, the State of Israel and the Jewish people are with you. --Alan Baker Ambassador of Israel to Canada
