Out of It — Selma Dabbagh Out of It is a novel about family, place and identity, set in Gaza amidst falling bombs— what it means to be Palestinian, to live under occupation, and the issue of religion extremism. We believe that only the ways of peace can lead to peace. Therefore, better than condemnations of violence, what we need is an action which puts an end to all form of violence, by putting an end to its primary cause, the occupation. They know that even before prophet Abraham, Palestine was ruled at various times by the Babylonians, the Phoenicians, the Canaanites, the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans, all of whom left their cultural and genetic marks on Palestine.

Is Israel still preserving the dream of having all Palestinian territories, but having them empty, without Palestinians? Only in this way, Israel, surrounded by friends, will live within its desired security. If Israel has a sincere will to put an end to all violence, the way to take is not war or reprisals, but a rapid and serious action which puts an end to the occupation. The novel is funny, surreal and extremely dark, with lines that hang in your head long after the book is put down. Obama and other U.

How can Congress contribute to peace in the region if lawmakers do not have information from both sides? Have you read any books recently that focus on the Israel-Palestine conflict? Her respondents assure her over and over again that not only Palestinian women, but also Palestinian males are marginalized by the Israeli power structure which accords them a limited representation on election party lists. Together, these men and women are something of a team — Team Ramallah, to be precise — and once a month during the summer season they compete with other amateur street racers from towns across the West Bank: Jenin, Nablus, Bethlehem and Jericho.
