Incredible story of Israelis and Palestinians who are committed to bring the Israel/Palestine region of the Middle East to an equitable,just and peaceful resolution of this long, tragic conflict. Only when Palestinians are accorded all of the respect, dignity and human rights as Israelis, and, as everyone else on Mother Earth will this conflict be resolved. It's encouraging to learn of Israelis and Palestinians who understand this.

It is rare to find any hope for a peaceful resolution of the crisis that has existed in Israel/Palestine since the creation of Israel in 1948, and especially since the 1967 war. Maxine Kaurman-Lacusta has managed to find rays of hope on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides of the conflict. She provides insight into the vision and commitment of peacemakers and to the substantial challenges they face, and she lets them speak with their own words.

"Refusing to be Enemies" is a great title for the book. It is the first commitment that people on both sides need to have if they wish to create a peaceful and stable future for their people.
