Voices from Armageddon

Front Cover
The word Armageddon conjures up images of fear and ultimate cataclysm. The bloody 4,000-year history of the Valley of Armageddon, today known as the Jezreel Valley, reinforces these beliefs. There is, however, another much quieter reality very much alive in the valley. Despite the history, the prophecy and the current unrest and warfare - there are people from both sides of the conflict who understand that we are capable of respecting one another with dignity. Israeli doctors treat patients who are dedicated to their destruction. Palestinian Muslims help Jews. These people are living testimony to the spirit of forgiveness and to the power of acceptance. These voices may represent the real ultimate conflict of Armageddon - the battle between the forces of good and evil within ourselves.

About the author (2006)

Larry Rich left the USA in 1972 to live in Israel, in the Jezreel Valley. For more than thirty years, as soldier, father, businessman, he has had first-hand knowledge of the terrible conflict that has raged between Israeli Jews and Palestinians. Here he tells the story of an extraordinary multi-ethnic medical centre dedicated to saving the lives of whoever comes through their door - whether children or suicide bombers, Jews, Christian or Muslim.
