Israeli And Palestinian Voices by Cathy Sultan
Cathy Sultan offers further insight into the disturbing and seemingly unsolvable situation in the Middle East. Israeli and Palestinian Voices: A dialogue with Both Sides is part adventure, part history, part travelogue, all bound together with a startling collection of interviews which this courageous housewife from Wisconsin conducted first-hand in a variety of sometimes not-so-safe places. Her cinematic account of a narrow escape from Ramallah into East Jerusalem prior to a military assault on the town leaves the reader breathless. This book is a continuance of the author's bold quest to bring peace to a region tragically gripped by obduracy and fanaticism. Readers will be astounded at the poignant and sometimes frightening opinions of the ordinary people Sultan meets and interviews.
