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."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
