This Time We Went Too Far

Abby Zimet

This month, a new book is out by Norman Finkelstein on the Israeli
assault on Gaza. For all the suffering it caused, he argues it may also
mark something redemptive, a turning point in world opinion that may
ultimately bring justice to Palestinians. Available from OR books here. An excerpt is here.

"This book is not just a lament; it also sets forth grounds for
hope. The bloodletting in Gaza has roused the world's conscience. The
prospects have never been more propitious for galvanizing the public
not just to mourn but to act." - from the introduction to This Time We Went Too Far.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
