BOOK REVIEW: "Love and Terror In The Middle East" by Frank Romano

Oct 14, 2016
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, author Frank Romano, PhD remains in the fight for a durable peace in the Middle East as he provides a profound insight into the relations of Jews, Muslims, & Christians in the Middle East in his latest book “Love and Terror In The Middle East” (AB Film Publishing). This Fourth Edition is a magnificent book on the current events and the road to peace.
Romano has spent a decade organizing grass roots efforts to make changes for the greater good in the Middle East, but he doesn't merely talk about the possibility of sustainable peace in the Middle East; he champions programs through interfaith unification and has seen first-hand the results of these efforts.

Even though he has found himself in dangerous situations, he has spent decades of his life working towards peace in the Middle East. His story began decades ago with a move from California to France to study philosophy. He later ventured to Morocco on his way to the Middle East, where he was to participate in the interfaith peace movement. In his quest for the universal religion, which at first he thought might be Islam (meaning "peace”), he soon realized that the Islamic cult he met had little to do with peace and more to do with radicalism. After daring to ask questions relating to Islam and women, he was wrongly accused by Muslim extremists of being a Zionist spy and was imprisoned. This ultimately led to a spiritual awakening and, eventually, to his escape. 

Dr. Romano just returned to Paris from a month in the Middle East, during which time he organized interfaith groups and peace demonstrations. He also endeavors to be a part of what is certain to be more involvement by the American public relating to Middle East issues. His hope is to create a positive impact on American thinking which seems to be more open to interfaith peace activities.

Dr. Frank Romano is a lawyer (in France and the US), author, speaker, and professor of law, literature, history and philosophy of law at the University of Paris, France, and continues to be an advocate for peace in the Middle East.
