The Book

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. Forer eloquently tells the story of the difficult but ultimately life-affirming process of awakening to the suffering of the Other. Read this book if you have the courage to acquire the wisdom to make the leap of empathy required to realize a new politics of peace and reconciliation.

— Rabbi Irwin Kula, Author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life.

    • Thank you Ty! I do not have any book tours planned but I am always open to invitations to visit. Frankly, people on both sides of the Israel-Palestine debate feel threatened by my very humane perspective. That is because I explain the illusory nature of identity, of who we define ourselves to be. The ego does not like being challenged especially when it is seen as no better or no worse than anyone else. Before we are Americans, Israelis, Palestinians, Christians, Jews, Muslims etc we are human.

  1. If only these words would spread themselves around the globe. I’m so glad to have found you out Richard. Thank you for your insight, courage and comittment to truth.
