Overview


In 1988, at the age of 20, Souha Bechara attempted to assassinate General Lahad, chief of militia in charge of Israeli-occupied Southern Lebanon. In Resistante, she details her further involvement as a young secular Orthodox Christian left rebel in the movement to free her country from occupying military forces — and the subsequent punishment and incarceration she experienced. The author speaks movingly of how her childhood in a war-torn country shaped her political belief system as an adult and offers an engaging personal look at the Middle Eastern conflict.
