This edition includes the secret report on the Death of Arafat. Israel has yet to give this war a name. The Palsestinians call it the Al-Aqsa Uprising. But for Israel it was no uprising and it had nothing to do with Jerusalem.
Amos Harel is the military correspondent for the Israeli daily Haaretz. Avi Issacharoff is the Arab affairs writer for Kol Yisrael.
'...the book nevertheless reinforced one conclusion that we suspected from the very outset: that despite the human need for an 'organizing idea,' that comprehensive theory that would cast the blame on one of the sides and divide the world into the good guys and the bad guys, things are more complex. Just as Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat did not plan the intifada, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon did not pulverize the PA as part of a planned move he had decided upon before he came into power. Had the two of them been asked on September 29, 2000, about their forecast for the coming four years - it is doubtful that they would have assumed that the two peoples would be where they are today.' -Amos Harel, co-author
