Barrier : the seam of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Author: Isabel Kershner
Publisher: New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Politics, anger, and fear divide Israelis and Palestinians, two nations bound in deadly conflict.

Amidst the talks of peace but continued violence between the two, Israel's building of a barrier separating the two peoples has sparked great international attention and debate."

"In this report, Israeli journalist Isabel Kershner traces the barrier's route and its effects on people on both sides.

She provides portraits of Israeli settlers feeling abandoned on the wrong side of the fence, Palestinian farmers angry at being cut off from their lands and groves, and Arab families split up in communities now separated by the barrier."

"Combining the personal with the political, Kershner explores the heated debates among both Palestinians and Israelis. Palestinians oppose the barrier and fear the future while Israelis are deeply divided.

Most are convinced the barrier will bring security; others protest it as an obstacle to peace.

Barrier brings to the fore the dilemmas on all sides and explores how terrorism created public calls for the barrier to enhance security."--Jacket.  Read more...
