Item description for The Last War: The Failure of the Peace Process and the Coming Battle for Jerusalem by David Allen Lewis & Jim Fletcher...
Overview When the last tank stopped firing in the deserts of Iraq at the end of the Gulf War, the coalition of allies that defeated Saddam Hussein began to think in terms of solving the long-standing dispute between Israel and Palestinian Arabs. Thus was born a protracted peace process known simply as Oslo. Tragically, a decade of intense diplomacy and negotiation has given way to widespread violence: some analysts aware of the real potential of catastrophic war in the region, openly wonder if this will all lead to a "last war" of sorts. After 60 trips to the Middle East, David Allen Lewis brings an astonishing perspective to all this in his book, a laymen's guide to peace and conflict in the cradle of civilization. From his interviews with high-profile leaders like Ariel Sharon, to his decades of experience, Lewis provides the reader with a scintillating view of a region most of us know little about.
Publishers Description After seven years of "confidence-building" measures that are the framework of the Oslo Accords -- an ambitious attempt to bring Israelis and Palestinians to a final peace agreement -- the whole affair is unraveling.
Violence in the West Bank has accelerated dramatically since Yitzak Rabin and Yasser Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993. In this in-depth study of the peace process, the reader will learn little-reported facts about the peace process and the people involved, and will be able to see clearly that the latest confrontations are a prelude to a devastating conclusion.

Well-written Sep 7, 2004
This is a well-written book. It expresses the type of frustration felt by those who understand that the Arab goal is still, as it was in 1948, to drive the Jews into the sea. This book discusses the ways in which the so-called Palestinians have turned their propaganda to make them appear to be the victims and how the international news media have fallen for it. And how that has endangered the world -- for the ultimate goal of Islam is to conquer the world for Islam!
7th of Never Feb 1, 2003
This book is absolutely correct. It is an accurate account of the Last War. Dr. Lewis is a fine Bible teacher. His books are Biblically accurate. He doesn't speculate or put his views into it. The Bible is the final authority. You won't regret purchasing this book or any of Dr. Lewis' books. Buy one and give it to a friend after you read it.
Disappointing Jun 1, 2002
Was hoping to read an unbiased history of the conflict in the Middle East. Instead entire book is so heavily slanted toward Israel that had to put it down after a few chapters. If you are genuinely trying to educate yourself about this important region, don't bother purchasing this book. Just more pro-Israel rhetoric.
Incisive analysis of the truth behind Middle East news... Oct 16, 2001
I cannot stress forcefully enough the enormous importance of this book.
With the current worldwide political climate, especially relating to events in the Middle East, it is essential that we understand the background and true context of news reports emanating from that region. Ultimately they will affect each and every one of us.
David Lewis provides a thorough, comprehensive and incisive analysis of this very issue. His easy to read and in-depth analysis of the media reports and the political & religious background to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict is absorbing.
Lewis supports his analysis through a range of thought-provoking interviews with a number of political figures who possess a vast knowledge of the historical and political core issues of the present unrest.
Having read this book, one will forever examine our TV News and International Media reports with a fresh outlook. This book is of great assistance in achieving just that.
