Book Release: Love and Terror in the Middle East
Book Release: “Love And Terror: A Peace Activist Enters A War Zone To Help Stop The Conflict And Bring Peace In Israel And Palestine”
Author Dr. Frank Romano
This is the first time Dr. Frank Romano has travelled to the Holy Land in the middle of a war (Intifada) between Israelis and Palestinians.
He was particularly challenged when he organized and participated in a peace and freedom march in Hebron, the West Bank, a block away from a confrontation between Israeli soldiers and two young terrorists, who were later killed. A day later and in spite of the tension and the volatile emotions, he led the peace and freedom march there.
He has spent a decade organizing grass roots efforts in Israel and Palestine to make changes for the greater good, and documents his quest in Love and Terror in the Middle East, 4th edition.
In the face of the murders of his activist friends in Israel and Palestine, and the Paris and Nice massacres in his home country, France, Frank Romano remains in the fight for a durable peace in the Middle East.
Love And Terror: A Peace Activist Enters A War Zone To Help Stop The Conflict And Bring Peace In Israel And Palestine
Paris, France & Houston, TX, November 23, 2016 – Frank Romano, PhD, has just returned from a one month stay in Israel and Palestine, in the midst of an Inifada, or war between Israelis and Palestinians. For a decade, through interfaith grassroots efforts to open up communication, he has brought Jews, Muslims and Christians together from all corners of the world in support of peace.
However, this is his first voyage into a war zone and he has a story to tell.
Romano tells the remarkable story of his journey in Love and Terror in the Middle East (AB Film Publishing). A 4th edition of the book, it includes a new chapter dedicated to a recent event where he was trapped in the middle of rioting Palestinians, following the killing of a Palestinian youth by Israeli soldiers, and barely escaped with his life.
Constantly surrounded by war, his journey has been fraught with sacrifice. Friends and fellow activists have been arrested and brutally murdered. He has been attacked by settlers, harassed and arrested by the Israeli and Palestinian police. In his personal life it has cost him his marriage, another long term romantic relationship, and impacted his role as a father. In spite of the danger and sacrifice, Dr. Romano – lawyer, author, speaker and professor of law, literature, history and philosophy of law at the University of Paris, France- continues to be an advocate for peace in the Middle East.

Rosa Syed: “extraordinary….provides a profound insight into the relations of Jews, Muslims, & Christians in the Middle East.…A magnificent book on the current events and the road to peace….”
Mark Russell Bell: “Reading Frank Romano’s memoirs, I was reminded that paths of spiritual discovery involve the intellect in relation to one’s dedicated research and contemplation….I also found myself acknowledging once again that the true ‘holy’ land in the transitory world we call Earth is not limited to any geographical area but is the condition where one recognizes that all people are members of the same vast family.”
