Joshua Hammer discussed his book, A Season in Bethlehem: Unholy War in a Sacred Place, published by The Free Press. Based on Mr. Hammer’s reports for Newsweek magazine and interviews with residents of the region, the book recounts the story of Bethlehem between 2000 and 2002. Mr. Hammer arrived in the West Bank in October 2000, following Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount. According to the author, Sharon’s trip halted the peace process, incited violence, destabilized the region and culminated in Israel’s 2002 reoccupation of Palestinian towns and the thirty-nine-day siege at the Church of the Nativity. Mr. Hammer also talked about the current state of affairs in Israel. A question and answer session followed Mr. Hammer’s presentation. close
