Fascinating Interview with Aziz Abu Sarah

The Jerusalem Post has just published a fascinating in-depth interview with Aziz Abu Sarah, Palestinian writer and peace activist. In it, Abu Sarah speaks candidly about the difficult journey he has undergone from a boy consumed by hatred and revenge to a man guided by empathy, compassion and justice. Abu Sarah’s words should be read by anyone who reduces Palestinian/human agency to outside forces – i.e. those who blame Islam, or those who blame the occupation. I have no doubt that if we could clone Abu Sarah a thousand times (split evenly between Israel and Palestine) there will be an end to this conflict.
