About this book

I Found Myself in Palestine: Stories of Love and Renewal from around the Globe is a collection of personal reflections on the experience of being a foreigner in Palestine.

Mirroring the reach of Palestine’s global community, contributors come from Bolivia, Chile, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, South Africa, and Sudan, as well as from the United States, and more. Spouses and parents, friends and lovers, activists, aid workers, expats and travelers—all are “ordinary people” who by choice or chance found themselves deeply involved with, and changed by, the land and people of Palestine. By turns raw, poignant, funny or sad, these “foreign reflections” on the search for belonging offer surprising glimpses into the kaleidoscope that is Palestine.

Contributors include: Pam Bailey, Mariam Barghouti, Thimna Bunte, Jonathan Cook, Helene Furani, Fatima Gabru, Neta Golan Kamal, Nadia Hasan, Donn Hutchison, Didi Kanaaneh, Andrew Karney, Maria Khoury, Corina Mamani, Cody O’Rourke, Carolyn Quffa, Rina Rosenberg, Marty Rosenbluth, Ann Saba, Samira Safadi, Zeena Salman, Steve Sosebee, Saul Jihad Takahashi, and Trees Zbidat-Kosterman.

Reviews

“Mabrouk to Nora Lester Murad and all the contributors to this courageous volume – I Found Myself in Palestine pushes our understandings of solidarity as inextricably linked to radical love, and sheds light on the many incommensurabilities, like the opposite banks of a river, that may mark the limits of our raced/classed/gendered relationships in struggle and across colonial borders – yet can never hold the vastness of our love and continual quest for justice in Palestine and beyond.” —Devin G. Atallah, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Racial/Cultural Focus, Psychology Department, University of Massachusetts Boston
