“Dr. Joyce Starr has invested enormous scholarly and personal effort to convince the governments of Middle Eastern states that if they do not act in unison to forestall a regional water crisis, they may be dragged into more unnecessary wars.” – Jay Bushinsky, Chicago Sun-Times
“He who controls the water, controls the Middle East. Anyone who wants insight into the events of the next millennium must read this book.” – David H. Hummel, former director, Christian Broadcast Network’s Middle East Television
The very waters of life, according to Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions, are said to flow from the Holy Land of the ancient Middle East region. Yet, today’s politicians chart a perilous course: Their policies could bury the area under desert sand and concrete, shatter hopes for lasting peace, and pose a threat far beyond the immediate reality.
Dr. Joyce Starr exposes the battles over Israeli and Middle East water policy that eventually diluted the peace process. She also illuminates the spiritual view of water set forth in sacred writings and how this legacy has shaped the current political terrain. The author outlines essential steps nations must take to prevent water shortages, pollution and famine in the all too near future.
Old Flames is a prep school tale of wealth, bullying and the physical abuse of a Jewish student. (“I wanted to ask Mr. Harrington to intervene, but feared being viewed as a weakling or worse, a coward.”) When raw antisemitism turns unbearably violent, the gentle victim transforms himself – against all odds – into a decorated “flame throwing” Marine. But respect earned in battle cannot erase childhood humiliation – nor the pain Gus inflicted during World War II. (“The thrill of battle only lasts so long. I became terrified by my third run to see the pain on the faces of the victims.”) Hoping to mend his physical and emotional wounds, Gus seeks redemption in unrequited love.
