If you are sick of the news headlines about Israel and Palestine and would like to know some of the personal stories behind the news then this book is for you. It is a beautifully woven tapestry of real life stories from the heart of the conflict. Prepare to be moved.

A fascinating piece of journalism that does a good job of reporting the tensions of this middle east region. I just wish she could of spent more time in Israel and Palistine in order to get more of her unbiased reporting included in her book.

Format: Paperback
This book is on the wrong side of truth, justice, human rights, and history.

It simply promotes blood libel of Israel.

We've seen such attitudes before. One that comes to mind is the Dreyfus case in France in the late nineteenth century. Dreyfus was a Jewish military officer who was accused of treason. Although many people doubted his guilt, a crowd of folks still celebrated his dismissal from the army and severe prison sentence on Devil's Island. And they shouted "Death to the Jews." That made a big impression on Theodore Herzl and on many other folks. Why should all Jews be attacked just because one Jew may be a felon?

On top of that, it turned out Dreyfus was innocent. Where did that leave the anti-Dreyfusards? Well, it showed them to be opponents of human rights who did not care too much about justice or truth.

And that's where the author of this book is. She's supporting the modern version of the anti-Dreyfusards. And in this book, the most obvious example of this is the Mohammed al-Dura case, which some of you may have heard of.

This was a case at the start of the 2000 intifada, where newspapers printed pictures of a 12-year old boy who they claimed was caught in a crossfire between Arabs and Israelis and who died in the arms of his wounded father. Once again, quite a few people blamed the Jews without looking at the evidence and drew the conclusion that there needed to be group punishment on the Jews for letting such a thing happen.

Campbell uses her journalistic skills to support the modern anti-Dreyfusards.

Now, it is true that people do get hurt and killed in wars.
