A blood-dimmed tide : dispatches from the Middle East by Amos Elon( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Blood-Dimmed Tide gathers nearly thirty years of Amos Elon's work on the Middle East. Skillfully moving from the Intifada, to the Gulf War and its aftermath, to the Peace Now! movement, these essays provide a nuanced account of relations between Jews and Arabs, and among the Israelis themselves. This internationally-known journalist presents sharply observed portraits of the region's key figures: Shimon Peres, Yitzak Rabin, King Hussein; he interviews Yasir Arafat, and considers Moshe Dayan's life and legacy. Elon also ranges far to sketch the political climate of the region and its players, from Israeli settlers in Hebron and their uneasy coexistence with Arab neighbors to the foreign policy of Egypt. From the Palestinian's refusal to accept Israel's 1978 offer of "full autonomy," to the Israeli government's insistence that settling the occupied territories would bring security, Elon traces what he considers to be the deadly miscalculations of both groups. As he examines the events and misunderstandings that have made it so difficult for Palestinians and Israelis to establish peace, Elon concludes that what will finally bring the two sides together will not be moral imperative or personal courage, but exhaustion

This film explores the 20-year relationship between two families, one Israeli and one Palestinian. Danae Elon last saw her childhood caregiver in 1991, and she seeks here to discover what happened to Musa, the Palestinian who helped raise her from her infancy until she joined the Israeli army. Her quest takes her to Paterson, NJ, where he had sent his own children to school, and she finds Khalid, Nāṣer, and his six other sons living happily in America. Their encounters bring out the delicate boundaries of politics, class and family relationships. A painful, contradictory, gentle and loving story takes place against the backdrop of a distant and brutal conflict
