Praise for Yossef Bodansky and "The High Cost of Peace: "Read Bodansky and one can begin to appreciate what President Bush really meant when he said, 'This will be a monumental struggle between good and evil.'" -- "Indianapolis Star"The expertise of Yossef Bodansky is in sudden demand." -- "Los Angeles Times"Bodansky, the man who put us wise to Osama bin Laden before anyone else, has done it again. He has set forth a brilliant snapshot of the convoluted history of the Middle East from Israel's emergence to the current crisis. Bodansky's analysis shows clearly how Washington's short-sightedness helped precipitate the current terror campaign." -- Walter J. Boyne, author of "The Two O'Clock War"I always suspected that Arafat was a terrorist and a corrupt leader. Now, Bodansky's exhaustive and damning investigation proves just that beyond a shadow of doubt. "The High Cost of Peace should be required reading in the White House and Congress." -- Congressman Eric Cantor, chairman, Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare"To truly comprehend why peace in the Middle East--an end coveted for so long by so many--is becoming more and more illusive, you must read Yossef Bodansky's excellent book. An engrossing account of Israel's quest for security and peace, as well as the United States' struggle to secure its vital interests in a turbulent region, "The High Cost of Peace provides an adamantly hopeful prognosis against dire and tragic odds. I strongly recommend it." -- Brigadier General (Reserve) Yigal Pressler, deputy adviser to the Prime Minister of Israel "Bodansky has written the story that the evening news has ignored. While they've been busyblaming Israel and the United States for the violence and terrorism in the Middle East, he's been busy unearthing and documenting the intricacies of Middle Eastern terrorism." -- Congresswoman Helen Delich Bentley
