Yad Vashem to Al-Khaleel: Gatekeepers to the Holy Land’s Good, Bad and Ugly

Description

The question of Palestine touches us all: as a burning ember in the hearts of the planet’s 1.6 billion Muslims and 13.4 million Jews, an insatiable consumer of your taxes, and a heart-wrenching tale of missiles, torture, desecration, famine, dispossession, ghettos and salvation. The Holy Land defies simplicity and demands a wider angle. Beyond the nationalistic, political and religious narratives broadcast by major news networks lies a complex, interconnected and diverse reality of brave soldiers, Palestinian brewers, activist rabbis, interfaith amigos, besieged librarians and gun-toting politicians.
