Description:
How do Israelis endure in an environment where terrorist attacks can occur at any time? Why do so many Israelis express messages of hope and not despair? Waiting for Peace is a journey of intimate discovery of life in a society coping with terrorism. Meet a fascinating group of Jewish Israelis: the political left and the right, the religious and the secular, a bus driver, an intelligence analyst, students, a high school principal, the wounded, doctors, social workers, a captain in an elite army unit, and a new recruit. Their stories illuminate a brutal reality and the profound strength of the human spirit. Revealing interviews describe relationships with Palestinians before and during the intifada. The heartfelt and sometimes heart wrenching personal narratives, replete with life’s lessons, will stay with you long after the book is closed.
