Abstract:

"During the first Palestinian uprising, Jeffrey Goldberg--an American Jew--served as a guard at Israel's largest prison. Rafiq, a rising leader in the PLO, was one of his prisoners. Amid the violence and chaos the two men began a conversation that grew into a fraught, conflicted, but remarkable friendship. Now an award-winning reporter and terrorism expert, Goldberg tells this story, taking us deep inside the madness and anger that saturate the Middle East. He shows us that it is still possible to hope for peace, and that fundamentalism and extremism do not have to forever define the conflict between Arab and Jew, between Islam and the West"--Page 4 of cover.
