Gaza Mom: Palestine, Politics, Parenting, and Everything In Between by Laila El-Haddad
Meet Laila El-Haddad, journalist, activist, Gazan, and mother. Gaza Mom is a compilation of blog postings from www.gazamom.com, maintained by El-Haddad since 2004. These curated entries give the book a sense of intimacy as well as present the day-to-day indignities and resiliency of an occupied people. Of particular note are the chapters that cover Operation Cast Lead and more recent events.
