“Love and Terror in the Middle East,” 3rd Edition, by me, Dr. Frank Romano, was published a few months ago.

Over the past five years, peace activist/international lawyer I have had to face hostility and pass through a maze of walls and checkpoints in Israel and the West Bank to lead interfaith activities aimed at easing the region’s bloody path to peace. Efforts to bring interfaith peace to the region have not come without high costs and great sacrifices, namely the recent murder of two of my peace activist friends in the West Bank and in Jerusalem.

This 3rd EDITION includes a new chapter entitled “Return to Killing Fields.” It recounts the aftermath of the murder of Juliano Mer-Khamis, peace activist, in the Jenin Refugee Camp and the author’s recent return there to uncover the truth buried deep within the shrouds of his friend’s mysterious death.

I’ve just returned from the Middle East and I was in Tel Aviv doing a presentation in a bookstore when the missiles from Gaza were intercepted above the bookstore. A few days later I was arrested in the Jerusalem for organizing an interfaith peace dialogue/march in the Old City.  

I'm a tenured professor at the University of Paris and a member of the California and Marseille Bars.
