"Schwartz and Wilf, both of the left, have written a must-read about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the reason it won't be settled anytime soon. A great book and an important one." --Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire "The War of Return eloquently explains why the Palestinian demand for 'return' has continually sabotaged chances for a two-state solution. The historical amnesia of the contemporary West, coupled with the hypocrisy of Arab states, have artificially sustained a cause that should have long ago been discredited by all those hoping to solve the Palestinian tragedy. A major contribution to the very short bookshelf of essential books on the Arab-Israeli conflict." --Yossi Klein Halevi, author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor and Dreamers "The War of Return looks frankly and perceptively at the most prominent obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace: the Palestinian demand that the world and Israel recognize the Palestinian refugees' 'right of return, ' and Israel's refusal to accept that 'right' and a mass refugee return. Anyone seriously interested in the ongoing Arab-Zionist conflict needs to know what Schwartz and Wilf spell out." --Benny Morris, author of Righteous Victims and The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949
