He was desperate and he has come up short. In his misleadingly titled book of almost two decades ago, A Durable Peace: Israel and its Place Among the Nations, a rehash of a book published in 1993, Netanyahu called the West Bank, or Judea and Samaria as he puts it, the heartland of Israel. Withdrawal from it would leave Israel as a truncated ghetto-state squeezed onto a narrow shoreline.

A very important book by a great leader who has lived the life of a warrior and great leader. Bibi's deep knowledge of his people and their enemies makes him a man you can listen to. This book is one of the most important and informative books you can read on the subject. If you have even a small interest in Israel and the truth about Israel, read this book.
Benjamin has an intense knowledge and understanding of the past. His confidence in the present and foreknowledge of the future, being foretold from Scripture should be a reminder how important Israel is. I am not speaking of those that approach them as an enemy, rather, those considering turning aside from. We are in a time and place in history we must assess what has rang true through all cultural changes in all the millenniums, God, through Christ has Israel's back. Those who defend Israel are blessed to this day, and those turning away are in failure as they do so.
Mr. Netanyahu is utterly convincing and eloquent in this closing argument for Israel's case for control of the tiny area known as the West Bank vis a vis the Arabs.
Never overly emotional - yet never timid about stating the facts - Mr. Netanyahu is utterly devastating about the truth of the history of Palestine, the ethnicities of those who've lived there, the history before and after the creation of Israel, the agreemnts sought and sometimes made, the realities of defense needs and populations.
The only difficulty in reading the book is that one becomes so frustrated by the clarity of the Israelis' claims and the deliberate ignorance and obtuse attitudes of the West about Israel and the Arabs. Every so often, I just get so irritated by the facts, that I have to walk away from the book and return later.
Mr. Netanyahu has done a fantastic job of describing the issues in Palestine - there is nothing "extremist" (the shrill accusation made when critics can't refute the facts) about his presentation because it's so grounded in history, reality.
Everyone who wishes to understand the Middle East should read this book - which is written very clearly, in a vivid style, and with a strong narrative drive that makes the reading fly by.
The only thing more I would ask is for a revised edition covering the period since 2000 when this revised edition was completed.
This is compelling stuff that will make very clear much of what you read (or don't get to read) in the newspapers.
Thank you, Mr. Netanyahu!
This book is a Must Read for everyone. Even though it was written in the 90's, It is very educational and very timely. It teaches us facts about the Arab/ Isreali conflict- all about their turbulent history. It also gives viable solutions for these problems. It should be required reading in high schools and Universities. Benjamin Netanyahu is not only a wonderful prime minister, he is a great author.
"...security, justice, and above all, truth."

There are no pictures in this book, only maps of slowly shrinking territory for the jews to claim and live on. I had a hard time reading this book in that I was so angry at what I was reading. The appendices in the back are documents that were signed and witnessed by world powers at various times of the twentieth century promising land and homes to the jews. These promises have hardly been kept. So, it took me a long time to read this book because I would fume and fret through every chapter. Finally, about two thirds through, Netanyahu writes that having read so far you would think that there were no chance for peace in the middle east, which was precisely what I was thinking. Of course, Netanyahu does believe it is possible, but the above conditions, stated in the title of the review, must be met.

This book is definitely a keeper, I have so many pages bookmarked. This book should be read by all those interested in a lasting peace in the middle east.
I read this book with two purposes in mind: first, to see what Netanyahu thinks about the Arab-Israeli conflict and how to solve it, and second, to find out why liberals and leftists call him "Netanyahoo". The answer to the first is straightforward. The second requires some thought.

Netanyahu's program for peace is not unusual. He accepts the idea of an independent West Bank and Gaza, but they must allow for settlements, be thoroughly demilitarized, clearly acknowledge Israel's permanent right to existence, and provide for an Israeli military presence in the Jordan Valley. The last requirement may surprise some people but in fact it dates from a 1967 proposal by the U. S. Joint Chiefs of Staff which Netanyahu reproduces in his book. It is needed for "strategic depth" -- Israel needs enough space for it to devise an appropriate response before the enemy has gotten to the cities on the coast.

Settlements are justified by the wording of the 1922 Mandate for Palestine and do not violate international law but in fact reflect a provision of the document.They do not violate the Fourth Geneva Convention because settlers move voluntarily; they are not being deported or transferred en masse. Acknowledgment of Israel's permanent right of existence, and demilitarization of the West Bank, are necessary because in the event of real or threatened invasion, Israel needs to respond speedily rather than wait for protectors to decide what to do. This is illustrated by the U.S. response to Egypt's belligerent actions, especially the closure of the Straits of Tiran, before the Six Day War.

Netanyahu begins with a capsule history of Zionism and the British retreat from the Balfour Declaration (Chapters 1 and 2) then moves to contemporary mythmaking about Israel-Palestine peacemaking. "The Theory of Palestine Centrality" is a refutation of the claim that the conflicts of the Middle East mainly result from the Israel-Palestine issue. Certainly this refutation looks clear enough after the disasters of the Arab Spring and the civil war in Syria. (The book appeared in 2000.) "The Reversal of Causality" discusses the tendency to blame Israel for what is the fault of Israel's enemies, for example, the Six-Day War and the acquisition of the West Bank, when in fact Israel was only defending itself. Most other nations have acquired territory by conquest; why should not Israel be entitled to a little? "The Trojan Horse" deals with the past and present incarnations of the Palestinian resistance, first as Amin el-Husseini's irregulars, then as the PLO. In Chapters 6-8 he presents his program for peace (previously discussed)., which is based on forthright and uncondtional acceptance of Israel's existence, not to be to be bargained for in exchange for an Israeli concession, like territory. He points out the various benefits of peace, which are described as mainly economic cooperation, then points out that Israel has ceded much of the territory it won in its defensive wars but with no real peace.

The final chapter is something of a personal statement. Netanyahu reviews Jewish history from antiquity to the present, pointing the assertiveness of Jews in ancient times, their gradual weakening in the Middle Ages, and the reassertion of power with Zionism and especially Jabotinsky. There is a danger, given Israel's enemies, that the assertiveness will decline again. The solution is more energy in explaining Israel's position. Israel is a refutation of the theory of the fall of civilizations (as developed by Toynbee for example) and is thus an inspiration for non-Jews.

To me, not much of this book is new, but it provides a wealth of information most of which is employed in the arguments. Netanyahu sees that Israel must fend for itself in a world of hypocrisy. There are peoples all over the world with claims to self-determination, but none get nearly so much attention (and money) as the Palestinians. There is the massive accumulation of Palestinian violence, the series of aggressive wars waged against Israel, and the condemnations at the United Nations, most of which take no account of problems elsewhere. Above all there is the charge that Palestinians were rendered landless by settlements, the evidence for which is greatly exaggerated.
