Visions of the endgame by Tony Klug

klugA new Fabian Freethinking paper in association with the Oxford Research Group.

This pamphlet argues that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is on the verge of becoming irresolvable but that President Obama’s first term offers a final opportunity to settle it.

Published as Obama meets with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in Washington, long-term Middle East observer Tony Klug outlines a workable three step strategy based on clear goals and effective enforcement to bring this most calamitous of conflicts to a swift and fair end.

“Once again Tony Klug has outdone the experts in how to unravel the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In Visions of the Endgame, Klug provides the most probable approach the Quartet can utilise to resolve the conflict during the first term of President Obama. The White House should seriously consider the proposed approach.”

Hanna Siniora, former advisor to President Arafat and member of the Palestinian National Council.

“This brilliantly clear-sighted paper is, to my mind, the wisest assessment of the senseless conflict that has for so long dominated the lives of Israelis and Palestinians. With endless insight, it debunks the many myths on both sides. I now pray that it will quickly find its way to Obama’s desk, inspire him with its wisdom and cause him to act immediately according to its proposals.”

Moris Farhi, award-winning writer and vice president of International PEN, the worldwide association of writers.

“This is of the very high standard we have come to expect from Tony Klug and makes for a fascinating read. I hope President Obama will listen.”

Professor Donald Sassoon, Professor of Comparative European History, Queen Mary University of London.
