In the final weeks of 1987, the Gaza Strip became the major battleground of what is considered one of the few authentic national rebellions of the second half of the 20th century. Although the story of the Intifada in the Gaza Strip, with its tragic and inspiring outcomes, is slowly fading from the world's collective memory, the repercussions have ongoing impact on today's peace process. Beyond Intifada presents the captivating personal stories of six Palestinians, adding a rich, human dimension to the news events that the Western media has only partially explored. Helping to put their stories in perspective, the book provides a brief history of the Israel-Palestine conflict, as well as an overview of the Intifada itself. As the conflict in the Middle East continues, the personal stories in Beyond Intifada provide an remarkable glimpse beyond the politics into the lives of Palestinian people.
