Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish - now known simply as 'the Gaza doctor' - captured hearts and headlines around the world in the aftermath of a horrific tragedy: on January 16, 2009, Israeli shells hit his home in the Gaza Strip, killing three of his daughters and a niece. It was his response to this tragedy that made news and won him humanitarian awards around the world: calling for the people in the region to start talking to each other instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred. This is his story.

An amazing account of a life lived under much hardship and daily challenges faced with grace, faith, and courage. Dr. Abeulaish is a man of courage, character, and integrity as well as an outstanding writer. Beautifully written, emotionally wrenching, and inspiring, this book is a must read. It is an eye-opener about the decades long Palestinian-Israeli conflict and its lasting effects on the innocent people caught in the middle of the political and military agendas.

Very human and touching book about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Izzeldin provides a comprehensive view of the situation of Palestinians in Gaza using a very simple language . Despite his family drama, he tells his story without hatred or wish for revenge but with the hope that humanity and good faith between the parts will end the conflict.

A difficult read, but worthwhile and one of the most balanced looks at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict I've read. A great look at how healthcare and healthcare professionals can bridge the divide between people and play a great role in peace movements. The author is an inspiring and incomprehensible example of how hatred can be overcome in the worst circumstances.
