“Of the entire crimes to which Palestinians were subjected via a century of sour tragedy, probably none are extra merciless than the silencing in their voices. The agony has been such a lot severe, felony, and gruesome in Gaza, the place Ghada Ageel used to be one of many sufferers from early life. This number of essays is a poignant cry for justice, a long way too lengthy delayed.” —Noam Chomsky

There are greater than facets to the clash among Palestine and Israel. There are hundreds of thousands. hundreds of thousands of lives, voices, and tales at the back of the long-lasting fight in Israel and Palestine. but, the straightforward binary of Palestine vs. Israel on which the media so usually is based for context successfully silences the lived stories of individuals laid low with the strife. Ghada Ageel sought top experts—Palestinian and Israeli, educational and activist—to assemble tales that humanize the old tactics of profession, displacement, colonization, and, such a lot controversially, apartheid. Historians, students and scholars of colonialism and Israel-Palestine reports, and an individual drawn to extra nuanced debate, probably want to learn this book.
