5.0 out of 5 stars Voices of Courage, 19 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing left with which to resist the Israeli Occupation except through a BDS campaign. It was tried before. It worked. It shall work again. The voices of the contributors through their courageous writings are like beacons of light on the way to a peaceful transformation of a racist system supported by powerful forces from the outside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaza Food beyond Cast Lead, 19 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is as intriguing that this book managed to come out of Gaza, as it is refreshing to know that Cast Lead cannot do harm to the core of Palestinian Gazan cuisine. Written and illustrated well, it is a gem for those who wish to 'live' in Gaza without being able to be there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft like they should be, 19 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best and most reasonably price of the bunch online. They have a soft bounce to them when first worn, but eventually they settle and make you feel settled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distant memory brought to life, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book on a past thought to have vanished and forgotten. By the end of the book the reader can be forgiven for thinking that the past is also the present.

An essential read for those seeking a way out of the present deadlock in the so-called peace process.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Destruction of Modern Fallacy, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When politicians play games with people's lives and use them as pawns to achieve their own short-lived egos, an architectural crime gets committed. This documentary highlights the reasons behind the collapse of a modern architectural fallacy designed by a respected American architect who should have known better.

The most effective parts of this documentary are the walk-through scenes on the land, where this massive housing estate once stood, now left deserted, haunting and eerie, where children enacted their dreams before the advent of their nightmares. Well worth seeing by all architects and social housing occupants. A final judgment on design by committee.


Gaza in the Early Sixth Century
Gaza in the Early Sixth Century
by G Downey
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jewel of the Mediterranean, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before Gaza became known as the largest open air prison in the world (thanks to the Isareli bockade), it was the greatest city along the Mediterranean back in the 6th Century. This book is a simple and clear chronology of how Gaza claimed its title back then, and why? An eye opener on a piece of land never void of controversy or uniqueness.


Theodor Herzl: Excerpts from His Diaries
Theodor Herzl: Excerpts from His Diaries
by Theodor Herzl
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Herzl and Beyond, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is necessary to delve into the mind that invested, shaped and drove Zionism until it achieved its goals of establishing Jewish State in the land of Palestine. Herzl had predicted that his goal would be achieved within 50 years from when he made his decalartion in 1897. He missed it by only 1 year, a feat no modern political brain can match.

The book is a collection of specific diary extracts but, although one would prefer to read the whole output, it nevertheless provides an in-depth view of a visionary mind.

The determination and the audacity of a man like Herzl, however, did blind him to the resulting (and predictable) humanitarian tragedy as a result of the crimes committed by his fellow zionists against an innocent and indigenous population already living in Palestine well before Herzl made that prediction. This book should be ready by all those who suffered and continue to suffer from this ongoing tragedy.

by Jacob J. Nammar
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.02

5.0 out of 5 stars Born in Jerusalem, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the story of many eloquently written in a simple narrative. Being a Jerusalemite, Mr Nammar makes his case with much emotion.

Edition: Paperback
Price: 17.09

3.0 out of 5 stars Atlas of The Arab-Israeli Conflict, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recommended but there are other publications which delve into the reasons behind the conflict. If you are simply looking for a chronology, this is it.
