A Travellerspoint blog

getting ready

leaving for Israel-Palestine in 8 days...

i've been trying to school myself a bit from various angles: the Palestinian, Israeli, religio-historical, spiritual, etc. etc.

so far, the library's been: Said's The Politics of Dispossession, Madeline Albright's memoir Madame Secretary (for its sections on the Middle East/US policy and laundry list of political figures), Dershowitz The Case for Israel, Amira Hass' Drinking the Sea at Gaza, and a brand new Tanakh.

my good friend's blog South/South (http://southissouth.wordpress.com/) has also been illuminating in a number of different ways

the most amazing film--Arna's Children (directed by the son of an Israeli activist, about a theater group for young people in Jenin)

also scoured the shelves for some critical poetry books for inspiration while i'm gone...i MUST get some writing done, for real...
