I SHALL NOT HATE: A GAZA DOCTOR’S JOURNEY ON THE ROAD TO PEACE AND HUMAN DIGNITY by Izzeldin Abuelaish.
Abuelaish is a Harvard-trained Palestinian doctor who was born and raised in the Jabalia refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. He has been crossing the divide between Israelis and Palestinians for most of his life-as a physician who treats patients on both sides of the line, as a humanitarian who sees the need for improved health and education for women as the way forward in the Middle East, and as a father whose daughters were killed by Israeli soldiers on Jan. 16, 2009. Instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred, Abuelaish calls for the people in the region to start talking to each other.
