The "Other" Palestine

Abby Zimet

A new book, Palestine Sixty Years Later,
by Thomas Suarez, offers 171 photographs and commentary on Palestinians
"living their own lives as best they can" - in Gaza, East Jerusalem and
the West Bank - under the reality of Israeli occupation. Suarez is a
violinist and member of the Advisory Committee of Gaza Mental Health
Foundation. His book is available from Americans for Middle East Understanding and elsewhere.

From his dedication:
"In memory of the young Bedouin girl, name unrecorded, who was gang
raped and murdered by Israeli soldiers in the Negev, August, 1949, and
all the others of whom not even this much is remembered."

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
