This book, first published in 1987, examines British, American and Israeli practices in the Middle East. It explains these countries’ attitudes in the United Nations towards the Palestinian problem and the role of the United States regarding every Arab-Israeli war. It attempts to acquaint the reader with the reasons why so many yeas were yeas of no decision, and why the debates were mere exercises in futility.
