Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for I Saw Ramallah 'An important literary event ... One of the finest existential accounts of Palestinian displacement that we now have' Edward Said 'The passionate pain of exile, recounted at the end of a day by a true poet' John Berger 'Outside any political faction, Barghouti manages to be temperate, fair-minded, resilient and uniquely sad' Tom Paulin, Independent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Kindle Edition
Thanks for the poet's sharing of personal encounters and his deep emotions, not only towards the fate of his homeland but also his very own life.
Nothing is more powerful than the words of an exile talking about exile. He is a true Palestinian belonging to Palestine, not Palestinian Authority nor Jordan.
And I will remember not to call the East side as "West Bank" any more. It belongs to Palestine.

Because the author is a poet, it was beautifully written. Really brings up the tragedy of Palestine and how the people are suffering. So moving and sad.
