Diana Lodge read history at St Hugh’s College Oxford and spent most of her working life as a non-fiction book editor. She is also a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. An NLP proposition that particularly appeals to her is: ‘If what you are doing isn’t working, try something else.’ Having had a lifelong interest in and connection with Palestine, it is by now crystal clear to her that appeasement, favourable trade agreements and friendly diplomatic relations with Israel are enabling, not preventing, the Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people. She hopes that the stark facts outlined in this book will encourage decent people, whether Jewish or gentile, to peaceably but firmly boycott Israel. It is beyond high time that the multi-generational trauma that is being inflicted on ordinary people, and especially children, is stopped. Palestinian gas, oil and water reserves, lands and ancient olive trees can then be used to heal, to restore lost hopes and dreams, and create a peace-filled future for all the inhabitants of a deeply-troubled region.
