The author also gives the verbal right-of-way to the heads of the Palestinian Islamic movements, a Palestinian collaborator with Israel's internal security agency, international leaders, and counter-terrorism experts who are intimately familiar with the region and work closely with the heads of the Israeli and American intelligence services.
Several interviewees stand out in particular: those with victims on both sides, a teenage "would-be" martyr (suicide bomber) and members of the civil society who experienced the conflict in their flesh. Some of these individuals have died or have been murdered in the interim, others have been incarcerated.
