New Book on Israel-Palestine: WAKE UP AND RECLAIM YOUR HUMANITY

My new book, Wake Up and Reclaim Your Humanity – Essays on the Tragedy of Israel-Palestine, is now available on Amazon and other sites in paperback and digital editions. I’ve priced it at $14.99 and $4.99 ($2.99 on Amazon until November 15)  respectively, well below similar-sized books. Check it out and, if you purchase it, please leave a five star review. 
     In addition to clarifying significant elements of the history of Israel-Palestine that most people are unaware of, the book’s uniqueness is in its explanation of the root cause of the Israel-Palestine tragedy in particular and suffering in general. My first book, Breakthrough: Transforming Fear Into Compassion – A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict, alludes to the root cause but does not provide as explicit and detailed an explanation as Wake Up and Reclaim Your Humanity. Moreover, the new book’s perspective is unlike that of any other book on Israel-Palestine. An awareness of the root cause makes it easier to understand why so many people can be so resistant to documented fact and why their resistance contributes to suffering and conflict.

Wake Up and Reclaim Your Humanity, a new book by Richard Forer, provides a detailed history of the Israel-Palestine tragedy and a thoughtful approach that seeks compassionate solutions to the suffering of those affected by the tragedy.

Wake Up and Reclaim Your Humanity has been released worldwide. A unique and well-informed view of the longstanding struggle between Israel and the Palestinian people, the book focuses on the psycho-spiritual roots of suffering and conflict, commonly misinterpreted historical issues, and an exploration into the humanity that lies at the heart of the tragedy.    
 
  

BREAKTHROUGH: TRANSFORMING FEAR INTO COMPASSION – A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE ISRAEL-PALESTINE CONFLICT

Breakthrough may be purchased directly from Amazon in Kindle and as a paperback.

To my knowledge, there has never been a book that takes on the daunting challenge of describing and deconstructing the unbelievably complex emotional and intellectual journey from prejudice to compassion on this issue… until now!
– Anna Baltzer, from the Foreword

Breakthrough is a powerful, disturbing, enlightening must-read for anyone who cares about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and knows the present trajectory is a tragic cul-de-sac..
– Rabbi Irwin Kula, Author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life.

What’s New

July 12 2019 – I recently spoke at an Islamic Center about the psycho-spiritual roots of suffering and conflict. The speech I gave is unique because I explain why, at its core, the Israel-Palestine tragedy is not a political, ideological, religious, cultural or humanitarian problem. It is a psycho-spiritual problem. I begin talking at 4:45 and speak for about 36 minutes. A Q&A period follows the talk.
