Reviews - What do customers think about Occupied with Nonviolence: A Palestinian Woman Speaks?
A Great Book Oct 1, 2009
This book is very well written and informative about the issues currently occurring in Israel and Palestine, but from the rarely heard Palestinian side. It is definitely a page-turner that makes the reader consider the merits of non-violence.
Life in the Occupied Territories Jan 15, 2009
Occupied with Nonviolence is a series of writings by Jean Zaru about her life as a Christian Palestinian woman in the Occupied Territories of the West Bank. The book gives a very intimate look into the every day world of life in the West Bank. It is a world filled with the violence of occupation by a military force. Yet, kit is also a life filled with a sense of belonging and place, a life centered on one's neighbors and faith. This world view opened my eyes to a side of the Palestinian - Israeli conflict that we do not often see in America.
How it feels to women on the ground in Palestine Nov 26, 2008
A poignant, strongly personal word from a Quaker person who has stayed the course in Palestine, mostly in Ramallah. A Christian perspective on a scene that seems practically hopeless.
Faith Oct 14, 2008
This is a book about a faithful and persistent woman. You will learn a great deal about this part of the world and you need to know what she has to tell.
