The story is simply written with no rhetoric, just a straightforward telling of how it is to struggle to have a happy family life and to work in Gaza. The struggle to be able to move about freely, to retain a sense of worth, to simply maintain a home and family life in the face of adversity, and to do that without harbouring hatred for those he could easily see as the perpetrators of oppression.
The book fills in the gaps (for those who know little) in terms of explaining some of the background to why the Israeli's and Palestinians are where they are today, with the overlying message from Izzeldin that it doesn't have to be that way any more.
Its a very moving story and can bring you to tears, and if you are lucky enough, as i have been, to never to have experienced anything like Izzedin's experience, then it is truly humbling and thought evoking.
A recommended read to just put life into perspective.
I am in awe of this man. He had spent his life trying to make a better life not just for himself, but for Palestine. All he has ever believed in is the hope of bringing peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
At one point when the military said they had fired on his house because armed people were in there, Izzeldin says "my daughters were armed with love, with hope, with education, with work for peace."
I have to be honest my heart would only be filled with hate and revenge if this happened to my family. I can honestly say I do not know to what extremes I would go to if I had suffered like he. But not this man. He uses this horrific attack, this murder, to try again to get his message across. That there must be peace.
How dare I sit here in the safety of my home and bemoan that i cant afford a big house, or have no car. Or see the wrinkles appearing and grey hairs and feel sad that I am getting older. How lucky I am that I have lived and am still living. That my daughter and husband sleep soundly upstairs. I really have no idea how lucky I am. I think I appreciate life but I don't. Not like I should. This man humbles me.
I wish everyone would read this book and see the videos. I wish people would open their minds and look to the future and not the past. I fear his dream will never happen. That there will never be peace.Read more ›
If anyone deserves happiness, it is Dr Abuelaish. Don't miss this book, it is a true lesson of life, of love, of forgiveness and of faith.
Thank you, Dr Abuelaish, for sharing your inspiring story, and your hopes for a better future...
