The Christison's draw on the best existing literature of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, coupled with information from their own trips to Palestine and great pictures they have gathered. This enables them to detail a wide overview of the conflict from the checkpoints and road blocks that restrict Palestinians daily movements and lives, to the way the Jewish settlements in the West Bank are seizing Palestinian territory and rendering Palestinians homeless. This has been achieved by annexing Palestinian territory into 'greater Israel' leaving many Palestinian to be classified as 'illegal' within Jerusalem overnight, because although the land their house is on has moved from being classified as 'West Bank' to 'Jerusalem', the Palestinians in question remain classifed as 'West Bank' residents and are thus subject to house demolitions. There is nothing groundbreaking or new here, but this is a clear and concise overview of the attempts by Israel to slice up the Palestinian territory and ethnically cleanse it of Palestinians while simulateously expanding its borders and territory.
