"As the Middle East peace process disintegrates and the second Palestinian Intifada begins, Wendy Pearlman, a young Jewish woman from the American Midwest, travels to the West Bank and Gaza Strip in a quest to talk to ordinary Palestinians. A remarkable and inspiring narrative emerges from her conversations with doctors, artists, school kids, and families who have lost loved ones or watched their homes destroyed. As Pearlman writes, "the personal stories and heartfelt reflections that I encountered did not expose a hatred of Jews or a yearning to push Israelis back into the sea. Rather, they painted a portrait of a people who longed for precisely that which had inspired the first Israelis: the chance to be citizens in a country of their own.""--BOOK JACKET.
