Summary
Throughout their youth Nir Baram’s generation were bombarded with news about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - the injustices, the wrongdoings, the killings. Over the decades, the horror and despair had become habit he noticed people had begun to give up on the possibility of resolution. Yet, as Baram notes, the vast majority of Israelis as well as international onlookers know next to nothing about life on the West Bank, the area at the heart of the conflict they have spent their adult lives dissecting. Most have never visited the occupied territories, and thus the debate revolves around a theoretical, ill-defined area sketched out in our political imagination. This book of reportage emerged from the author’s realization that Israel is separated from the West Bank not only by checkpoints but also, more significantly, by a cognitive barrier. And so began his quest to understand the occupation from both sides
