Summary
Author Mark Braverman explores how the Jewish quest for safety and empowerment and the Christian endeavor to atone for centuries of anti-Semitism have combined to suppress the conversations needed to bring about a just and lasting peace in the Holy Land. Fatal Embrace charts Braverman's journey as an American Jew struggling with the difficult realities of modern Israel. The book describes the spiritual and psychological forces driving the discourse and is a call to action to Americans of all faiths. --publisher
