Dear Friends on IPeace,
It occurs to me that I should let you know about the interview-based book I had published recently (2010 Hardcover; 2011 paperback and e-book). It's called Refusing to be Enemies: Palestinian and Israeli Nonviolent Resistance to the Israeli Occupation and is an interview-based study in which more than 100 Israeli and Palestinian nonviolent activists share hopes and visions, and discuss effective strategies and challenges faced in pursuing the goal of a just peace.
The Foreword is by Ursula Franklin, a Quaker thinker and writer, pacifist, feminist, social activist, and scientist—a long-time member of the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW), and the book includes analytic chapters contributed by Ghassan Andoni (a cofounder of the Palestinian Center for Rapprochement and the International Solidarity Movement - ISM), Jeff Halper (co-founder and Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions - ICAHD), Jonathan Kuttab (a pacifist Palestinian lawyer, writer, and human rights advocate), and Starhawk (a Jewish-American peace, justice, and environmental activist and author, who has volunteered with ISM four times).
