Item description for West Bank Diary: Middle East Violence as Reported by a Former American Hostage by Jerry Levin...
Overview Hope Publishing House Jerry and Sis Levin are currently based in the Middle East-working at various times in Palestine, Israel, Iraq and Jordan-where they are involved in projects promoting nonviolence as a means for creating a more stable peacemaking environment in the Holy Land and elsewhere. Jerry is a volunteer with the Christian Peacemaker Teams (cpt) working out of their longtime West Bank base in Hebron, while Sis volunteers with West Bank peace-building organizations based in Bethlehem like the Holy Land Trust where she has created a program instructing teachers on how to teach nonviolence and peacemaking. In 2003 the Levins led a delegation into Baghdad as the allied invasion of Iraq began and were there throughout much of the bombings of the Iraqi capital and several weeks of its subsequent occupation. Jerry was CNN's Middle East bureau chief in Beirut Lebanon in 1984 when he was kidnapped by extremists and became the first of the so-called forgotten American hostages. He was able to escape eleven-and-a-half months later due to the efforts of Sis's team of Muslim, Jewish and Christian friends at home and in the Middle East. Dr. Lucille (Sis) Levin is a certified professional mediator who wrote "Beirut Diary" about her successful reconciliation-focused efforts to create the conditions by which Jerry was able to get away safely from his captors. Jerry shares his ongoing West Bank experiences in internet reports called "From The Inside Looking Out."
