Green Swamp, Florida (PRWeb) November 30, 2006 -- Eileen Fleming, author of a new spiritual book about possibilities for Mideast peace, announces her holiday gift this year will be to donate 100% of all proceeds for her new work of creative spiritual literature and historical fiction, "Keep Hope Alive" to the Olive Trees Foundation for Peace.

The Foundation is working in tandem this year with the Joint Advocacy Initiative's YWCA in Bethlehem and YMCA in Jerusalem's Keep Hope Alive Olive Tree Campaign to provide the funds for olive trees in areas devastated by years of conflict.

Fleming is an author, reporter and editor of WAWA who has just returned from her fourth journey to Israel Palestine since June 2005. As a member and supporter of the Interfaith non-profit, Olive Trees Foundation for Peace, she is donating all royalties to the 501 3-c organization whose history she has documented in this amusing and spiritual book.

The autographed book is available as a holiday gift.

"Keep Hope Alive" was inspired by and documents the life of Khaled Diab, a 1948 refugee from the Upper Galilee who made his way to America and into a career in the Defense industry with top-secret clearance during the Cold War. "Keep Hope Alive" opens with Fleming's imaginative discussion of a group of friends around Khaled's olive-wood kitchen table in Buffalo, N.Y., the morning after Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination.

Topics of conversation include the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the treasures of the Nag Hammadi library and the stages of the soul. These topics are intricately woven into a provocative, inclusive and cohesive story of historical fiction.

At the age of 78, Khaled ponders the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001 and is compelled to take positive action. With the help of many friends, he founds the nonprofit, nonpolitical Olive Trees Foundation for Peace.

"Keep Hope Alive" documents how American Jews, Christians and Muslims came together after the tragedy of September 11, 2001 to raise awareness and funds to begin to replant the olive trees that the separation wall has destroyed, and with hope to heal, mend and transform spirits and the environment in the Holy Land.

To date, 30,000 trees have been rooted, thanks to generous American donors. The full 100% of a book purchase is a tax-deductible holiday gift because all the proceeds are donated to OTFFP.

"Gary's Shelf" from midwestbookreview.com wrote about this spiritual book of historical fiction:

"At first I thought this had something to do with the famous line of Jessie Jackson. I'm delighted to say it is much, much more. The author shows that there are many people from all over the world who are moving in the right direction to establish peace in the Middle East .... This is a book that should be read by anyone who does not believe there can be peace in the Middle East. It should also be included in schools and on the college level to help focus on how the area can move toward peace." G.S. Roen
