The book is about facing hostility and passing through a maze of walls and checkpoints in Israel and the West Bank to lead interfaith activities. They are aimed at easing the region’s bloody path to peace. Many people have expressed interest about my present interfaith activities in Israel and Palestine.
This Fourth Edition includes a new chapter, Chapter 82: “In the Midst of a Riot.” It recounts a recent harrowing experience in Jenin, West Bank, when I was trapped in the midst of rioting Palestinians following the killing of a Palestinian youth by Israeli soldiers.
I'm a tenured professor at the University of Paris and a member of the California and Marseille Bars. My passion, however, is organizing interfaith peace groups in view of helping to bring peace to the Middle East.
The following provides you with a summary and more information about the book:
This is a true story about my arduous journeys between Israel and the West Bank, discussing issues and organizing activities among religious and national groups. Traveling between these areas has been risky: I’ve been harassed and arrested by the Palestinian police, harassed by Israeli soldiers and attacked by West Bank settlers.
“I wrote this book to share with a wide audience my belief in the possibility of peace through grassroots activities in Israel and Palestine, Romano explains. A lot of the Middle East conflict is due to misunderstanding and lack of communication among religious groups, so I want to encourage people to begin organizing in their own communities to help break down those barriers.”
I was interviewed on several major national and local Radio and TV shows, including with:
