This book is a collection of essays written over a period of 10 years urging Israel to speed up the resolution of the conflict with the Arabs. The date noted at the top of each chapter is the actual date of writing; they have not been edited or altered since. Together they constitute a chronology of unheeded warnings. The author is a veteran of the wars of the 50's and 60's in Israel. He worked closely with some of its distinguished leaders such as the first two prime ministers of Israel: Ben Gurion and Sharett. He served in senior positions in the civil service, in the army and in the Histadruth. He is a fervent Zionist which is a direct result of his unhappy experience growing up in Iraq. However his wide knowledge of Arab and Islamic history and culture taught him to respect and understand Arab views on the conflict. His arguments are fair and not one-sided. The essays deal with the continuous neglect of three main and intertwined problems that feed on each other and paralyze the political machine in Israel causing it to postpone and neglect dealing with the fundamental challenges that face the country and prevent any settlement of its conflict with its neighbours. These problems are: the electoral system of pure PR which perpetuates the social division of the population, the absence of recognized borders which is at the core of the eruptions of violence that perpetuate instability and most importantly the lack of effective presentation of Israel as the last country of refuge for the Jews everywhere. Israel's image abroad is dire and misrepresented. The first chapter, written in 2001, is a summary of advice to Israel set out in 12-bullet points. In the subsequent chapters the author shows how these points have been overlooked and neglected to the heavy cost, in lives and resources, of both sides of the conflict. The last chapter shows a way for a hopeful solution.

Aharon Nathan was born in Iraq in 1931 and moved to Israel in 1949. In 1953 he was appointed Senior Assistant Advisor both under Prime Ministers Ben Gurion and Moshe Sharett. In that capacity he was secretary to the standing committee of the security services in the Arab sector under the chairmanship of Chief Advisor Ziama Divon. In 1955 he was appointed by Ben Gurion as Secretary to the Yohanan Rattner's Commission on Military Government (with Yaacov Salomon and Daniel Auster as members) which laid the basis of future administrations of Arab areas in Israel, and post 1967, in the occupied territories. In 1956 he was Secretary to Judge Azulai's fact finding Commission on Kafr Qasim (with Abba Khoushi and Khoter-Yishai as members) which drew the distinction between lawful and unlawful orders for future engagement rules of the Israel Defence Forces. In the Suez War (1956) he was Deputy Military Governor to Brigadier ( later on General, Mati Peled) He set up and headed the first civil administration in the Gaza Strip. In the 60's he was in charge of integrating Arab workers as full members of the Histadrut Trade Union and coordinated Mapai's Campaign for the Fourth Knesset in the Arab Sector. In the 6-Day War (1967) he served in the Golan Heights. In 2005 he was appointed by the President of Israel to his Commission to examine the government and governance of the country. At the same time he joined the board of governors of CECI - the Centre of the Empowerment of the Citizens in Israel Since 1970 he lived in the UK from where he pursued a career in business and travelled extensively throughout the Far East and East Europe. The experiences of different countries have continued to feed his passion for electoral reform and encouraged him to devise and refine his electoral system: "TR" the Total Representation System. He holds degrees from the Hebrew University and Oxford.
