 Takes on the World 
 Donald Macintyre, author of Gaza: Preparing for Dawn (One World)

Donald Macintyre, former Jerusalem correspondent for the Independent of London has written the most comprehensive and detailed history of Gaza since the 1967 war in which he mixes very human stories with historical analysis in a manner that is easily accessible for those who both support and sympathize with the Palestinians under occupation and those who have an historical interest in understanding this seemingly intractable conflict.
The interview begins with Macintyre explaining why the latest flare-up between Israel and Hamas did not lead to a fourth war by Israel in the decade as many anticipated and why Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu broke with hardline members of his cabinet in agreeing to a cease fire when ALL of Israel’s political parties except the leftist Meretz were calling for war. His book is a “must read” for all those with an interest in the Palestinian struggle for justice.
