The vivid images portrayed, tell of a fractured and suffering society...on both sides of the border. It is frightening to read how fear, ignorance and hate can poison and dictate actions. Whilst aware of the negatives that both societies reflect, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish's writing indicates that there is more to the human spirit than evil and negativity and that there is possibility and promise even in the most dire and tragic situations. I recommend " I Shall Not Hate" as an inspirational book and I would wish it to be widely read and discussed in these days of strife, bigotry and ignorance. Our society cries out for bravery and positive action as Abuelaih states and provides.
