If you want to at least come close to understanding the 'middle-eastern conflict' - as we are used to reffering to brutal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, you MUST read this book. There are many books that will help you understand this problem and this is one of them. This book looks at the problem from the inside - not the outside as most of the 'other' books do. This book tells stories - true stories, human stories, heart-breaking stories, stories from behind the negotiation desk, stories from occupied country, stories of courage, love, too real stories of the horror of occupation (including deaths of innocents, indiction of victims)... This book includes it all...even facts from behind the negotiation desk. You simply have to read this book. Hanan Ashrawi is possibly one of the strongest, most courageous and righteous people in this world that we have to support or at least acknowledge.Was this review helpful?
