The reigning consensus in elite and academic circles is that the United States must seek to resolve the Palestinians' conflict with Israel by implementing the so-called two-state solu...more

Kristina
Terribly written book. It Omits alot of history so that the author can prove how flawless Israel is. It takes a very Israel vs. the western World approach. To the point where the author basically calls everyone a racist because everyone is trying to get rid the Jewish state in one way or the other. Basically the author argues that if your leader is even a little pro-Palestinian , then you are anti-Semitic. Because no one in the world could ever form their own thoughtful . Because the only People...more

This book was eye-opening. Ms. Glick begins with a clear, easily understood narrative that explains the sources of the Israeli-Palestinian problem. She places the conflict in its historical context, beginning with the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate for Palestine. She then describes in great detail the Arab revolts against British military rule, to which the British responded with repeated attempts to appease the Arabs. The author also details the anti-Semitic British government's ef...more

The Israeli Solution: A one state-plan for peace in the middle east is an excellent and very compelling argument for the abandonment of the "two-state solution". Just today, I heard that, though Israel had accepted a cease-fire, Hamas rejected it. So Israel still has to defend itself against their enemies who do not desire peace with them, but desire their annihilation instead. This has been the case for many years, beginning even before Israel even existed as a state.

In this book, Caroline Gli...more

The Israel Solution: Caroline Glick
Caroline Glick has penned a proposal of a one-state plan to achieve peace in the Middle East. From a majority standpoint, Biblical scholars & those of devout faith will agree that Israel should be given dominance over its own land. After all, Israel is home to God’s chosen people.
Diplomats & politicians, however, disagree. Their stance is that peace equals a picture of 2 states (Israel & Palestine) living harmoniously. Caroline Glick’s position is...more

“A manifesto that exposes the flaws in the tw0state policy of the United States toward Israel and the Palestinians and offers a direct and powerful call for Israeli sovereignty in the region.”

This book, The Israeli Solution: A one-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, is perhaps one of the most insightful books written about the generations-old “problem” of what to do with the Israeli’s and the Palestinian’s. It seems like every US president, past and current, have or have had “the answer”. Y...more
Sam
Although the author is a bit redundant, especially in the final several chapters, she makes an outstanding case for the world to drop the "Two-State" solution between Israel and the Palestinians. To sum up the reason here would take too long, but suffice it to say, the "Palestinians" would end up being much better under a One-State solution, with Israel applying Israeli law to both Judea and Samaria (aka West Bank). Glick states that it would ensure that all of those individuals would, as Israel...more

Caroline Glick makes a convincing case for a one-state solution to the conflict over Israel in her 2014 book, THE ISRAELI SOLUTION, A ONE-STATE PLAN FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. She presents strong evidence to support Israel's right to the land, including Judea and Samaria (the West Bank).

One strength of the book that I admire is the extensive documentation that Glick cites to support her arguments. In addition to a three-page bibliography, there are many footnotes - averaging forty-two per ch...more

For anyone interested in the Middle East conflict, this is a must read! This is a superbly written, well researched book about the Israeli and Palestinian conflict that argues passionately for Israel and settles many misconceptions about the true situation. I know there is so much information in here that I never realized and I feel like it was presented in a very readable way.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is even remotely interested in supporting Israel and wants to be better infor...more
Peter
This is the most clear-eyed analysis of, and sensible solution to, the Israeli/Arab problem that you are ever likely to read. Only the most closed-minded, unpersuadable sorts of blame-Israel-firsters could absorb the hard facts in this book and yet fail to agree with Ms. Glick's proposals. Tragically, everything she says and everything she recommends will be willfully ignored by the usual international-affairs mandarins, to the shame of Western policymakers and the peril of Israelis and Arabs al...more
Cassandra

Cassandra's Review- Strategically written and executed this book is an amazing read. The author got her point across and opened some doors for conversations to take place. As an adult read or for younger adults this book is perfect in the sense that it will provide a jumping point for you to go however way you decide on the topic.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from blogging for books.
Bill
An Israeli one-state solution based on fact rather than the fantasies of Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
Shelley
An excellent, well-researched book presented in a most readable way.
Gideon
Glick makes the most convincing case possible for what is still an idea that does not appeal to many. Yet, what is the alternative?
Naftoli
Caroline Glick is a master of clarity; she has proved herself adept at making an arguably complex situation completely lucid.

About Caroline B. Glick
(from her website)

I grew up in Chicago’s ultra-liberal Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park’s most famous resident is Barack Obama.

I made aliyah to Israel in 1991, two weeks after receiving my BA in Political Science from another radical liberal stronghold — Columbia University in New York, otherwise known as Beir Zeit on the Hudson.

I joined the Israel Defense Forces that summe...more
