Première phrase
On Monday, September 4, 1995-the ninth day of the month of Elul in the year A.H 5755 (according to the Jewish calendar)-the Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin officially opened the celebrations marking the 3,000th anniversary of the establishment of Jerusalem as capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Lire la première page

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A different History of Jerusalem 12 juillet 2012
Par Giant Panda - Publié sur
Written by a former deputy mayor of Jerusalem, this historical account looks at the last 150 years of Jerusalem's history in the context of reaching a peaceful solution to this divided city. Though written from the Israeli point of view, the book delicately handles issues of institutionalized discrimination against the city's Arab inhabitants and their national aspirations, often accurately representing the Arab side of the story on equal terms. The book excels in exposing the problems the city faces under Israeli rule. It also decisively critiques the myriad "solutions" to the city's problems and explains why they are unworkable. Where the book fails is in suggesting a workable solution. Written in the latter 1990s, the book seems to attach an unreasonable hope on the Oslo peace process, which as we know now, ended in failure. Still, this is a must-read book for anyone wishing to understand the complexity of the issues surrounding the Holy City.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Jerusalem Muslim Israel disputes 13 octobre 2007
Par William Garrison Jr. - Publié sur
Okay, the author is not an absolutist, unapologetic pro-Israeli. I marked up the book as I read it. When I initially finished it I felt somewhat disheartened about the book. I thought the book would be more about the history of almost every significant stone or brick in the city: where Jesus stubbed his toe while walking (and the religious significance of that) or where King David or another prophet found something of religious significance--but not to be. But after re-reading my marginal marks I realized how good this book really is. I thought that I had read a fair number of books about the Arab-Israeli wars and knew it all, but I found many new tidbits of information regarding the demarcation cease-fire lines from the 1948 War of Independence here, and explanations as to why the British and French were so interested in Palestine. (This is not a history of Christian missionaries in Palestine.) The author does cover a lot of Jerusalem history since King David, and reviews the theological importance of Jerusalem to Jews, Christians and Muslims. (This is NOT a bed-and-breakfast travel guide to Jerusalem!). The author does note the Muslim anti-Christian slogans in the Dome of the Rock. (This is not a history of the Muslim massacre of thousands of Jews during the 1920-40s, nor is it history of the Jews trying to defend themselves from Muslim attacks, nor a history of tank battles during the wars.) This is not a deep theological analysis of the religious beliefs in Palestine, but it is a very good review of the history of the theology as to how Jews claim this land, how Muslims demand unquestioned ownership of the Temple Mount, and how Christians are just caught up in this maelstrom. One of the major shortcomings of the author is his failure to note the intensity of the anti-Jewish and anti-Christian tenants in the Quran (as noted in Robert Spencer's: "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam"). Another companion book to read is Gorenberg's "The End of Days."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 But I may be prejudiced. This is not a review--it's info. 11 juin 2000

I just want to let you know that Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta, translator of Meron Benvenisti's latest book, Sacred Landscape, and Maxine Kaufman Nunn, translator of his previous book, City of Stone, are one and the same person--me. It would really be great if your link "all books by Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta" would include "and Maxine Kaufman Nunn" so that City of Stone would be included. Thanks.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Certainly Interesting 15 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This is an interesting perspective of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. I only wish the author hadn't tried to hide an all to apparent bias. It made some of his arguments difficult to swallow. I would have rather disagreed with him rather than wondered what he was trying to say without saying it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An important work 26 février 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
This is the second book by Benvenisti that I have read, and I am quickly becoming a devoted reader of him! The way he writes about notoriously polemical and difficult problems; his (at times) common-sensical remarks, so natural but so seldom stated; his deep knowledge of the history, both distant and recent, of the city and of her conflicting communities and interests; the intelligence and fairness with which the issues are analysed; all this makes the book a very rare and important work and should enshrine its author as one of the very few knowledgeable and balanced persons whose opinions about these matters, even when one does not fully agree with them, are always worthy to listen to.
