The unforgettable reviews of a tender Australian journalist published in Israel to document at the clash within the occupied territories are documented during this compelling memoir. Unafraid, or maybe simply stunningly naïve, Jamie Tarabay, an Arabic-speaking Australian of Lebanese descent, dove headfirst into the thick of heart japanese politics. From the good optimism following the Camp David summit in 2000 to the beginning of the intifada in 2001, Jamie was once within the thick of it—Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, suicide bombers, hard-line Jewish settlers, Palestinians dwelling lower than curfew, and the arriving of the hot millennium after a Christmas in Bethlehem. This unique, certain, and hugely illuminating memoir chronicles a transitional interval within the center East and lines the author's reports as she redefines her feel of nationality, morality, history, and faith.
