Palestine: The Right of Return is a must-read novel that addresses several critical issues facing world leaders who seek a solution to the almost century-long Arab-Israeli conflict. The "Balfour Declaration," issued in 1917, set the conflict in motion.

Mr. Bergstrom's story, albeit fiction, should be required reading for anyone hoping to understand the current stalemate. Mr. Bergstrom defines a path to lasting peace via a single state solution. Further, he highlights the problems created by America's well meaning but one-sided intervention on the side of Israel in the peace negotiations.

Mr. Bergstrom argues that Palestine's future will not be found in an agreement that divides Palestine into two equally or unequally aggrieved states, further asserting that peace can only come from the efforts of the primary stakeholders, those who will benefit or suffer most immediately through any resolution. The United States, Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, Lebanon, and other interested parties must stand aside.

Mr. Bergstrom concludes that the people of Palestine itself own the problem, and they must join together if a workable solution is to be created.

Returning to civilian life, he began a career with a Fortune 500 company as a laboratory technician and eventually retired as a senior executive from its international operations. Today he remains active as co-owner of a company providing nationwide mobile medical services. Mr. Bergstrom and his wife Eleanore enjoy traveling and visiting their children and grandchildren who are happily scattered throughout our wonderful country.
