Description

“If these voices could be heard by enough people, what now seems impossible might become possible for the long-suffering people of Israel and Palestine.”

Howard Zinn, author of You Can’t be Neutral on a Moving Train

In 2002, celebrated novelist and journalist Keniz’e Mourad traveled through Israel and the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, interviewing ordinary Palestinians and Israelis extraordinarily touched by the conflict between their peoples.

This is their story.

Often sad, frequently angry, and almost unbearably poignant, these testimonies from men, women and children alike speak of loss and hunger: loss of homes, loved ones, childhood freedoms; hunger for reconciliation, and for a land to call home.

Uncovering a world where both sides live with the daily realities and personal consequences of conflict, this heartfelt cry for peace will both move and enlighten in an unforgettable manner.


REVIEWS:
“A book of hope that reconciles us with humanity.”
-Marie-Claire

“The pages of this book drag us out of our dangerous state of apathy and sow fresh seeds of hope even in the depths of darkest despair.”
-Le Monde Diplomatique

“This book will not only teach, inspire others to take on the daunting task of understanding the conflict from the eyes of the ‘other’.”
-Daisy Khan, Executive Director, ASMA Society, NY, USA
