Cracks in the Wall
Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel
By Ben White
Pluto Books, 2018, 208 pages, paper $15, ebook $7.50
Ben White new book Cracks in the Wall is on first impression a bleak account of the factual and political situation in Israel/Palestine. Yet in view of "cracks" developing among Israels traditional supporters and Palestinians' growing militant and nonviolent resistance to Israels hard right policies, White optimistically envisions a just solution to the conflict. Those cracks in the pro-Zionist consensus are the heart of what the book is about.
