www.bitterlemons.net The bitterlemons publications reflect a joint Palestinian-Israeli effort to promote a civilized exchange of views about the Israel-Arab conflict and additional Middle East issues among a broad spectrum of participants. The bitterlemons publications are produced, edited and in some cases written by Ghassan Khatib, a Palestinian, and Yossi Alpher, an Israeli. Complete organizational and institutional symmetry is maintained between the Palestinian and Israeli partners.
