‘In our struggle for justice and peace in South Africa we had to learn to speak-and listen to-hard truths. Our experience should encourage all who strive for justice and peace in the Holy Land .
My visits to the Holy Land remind me so much of South Africa : apartheid is back, complete with the ‘Separation Wall' and bantustans. History, it seems, repeats itself. Yet, if peace could come to South Africa , surely it can come also to the Holy Land .
I welcome this book that exposes some of the hardest truths about Israel-Palestine. The distinguished contributors-from Israel , Palestine , the US , the UK and Ireland , women and men, Jews, Christians and Muslims-speak their Truth. Reconciliation will follow later.'
