Former CIA officer and columnist Philip Giraldi describes Obstacle to Peace as "essential reading on Israel-Palestine" in his review of the book.

Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer and columnist for The American Conservative, has written a review of my book Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, describing it as “essential reading on Israel-Palestine”! Here are a few excerpts:

Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian ConflictGiven the intense focus and the passions aroused by the conflict it is rare to find a book or article that says something new but Jeremy Hammond’s Obstacle to Peace: The U.S. Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict does just that, deconstructing the prevailing narrative on the Middle East while also explaining in meticulous and fully documented detail why and how a succession of United States administrations has actually become the greatest impediment to a just settlement that would benefit both Palestinians and Israelis. Washington, which pretends to be part of a possible solution, is actually the problem….

He has written his book in an attempt to inform the American public about what is really going on in the Middle East. He seeks to empower his fellow citizens to emphatically reject the actions of the government, the mainstream media and the host of think tank experts who have pretty much had things their own way for fifty years. May he find success. To my mind his book is essential reading on Israel-Palestine, joining the classic John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, Steven Sniegoski’s The Transparent Cabal and Alison Weir’s Against Our Better Judgement.
