In a time when history is told in cheap television re-enactments, if at all, and personal tragedy is gobbled up in rapidly digestible magazine photos and reality shows, this project goes against the grain. * Guardian *
Palestine Speaks-a collection of testimonials from Palestinians narrating their own experiences, their own suffering, is a rare and courageous book. -- Ben Ehrenreich, journalist and author of Ether and The Suitors
Palestine Speaks demonstrates that nothing is more eloquent than the voices of those who endure and try valiantlyto survive. Nothing is more important for us than to listen to them carefully, to grasp their suffering, to learn from their testimonies about them and about ourselves, and to use this understanding to bring their tragedy to an end. -- Noam Chomsky
