Review quote

"The conflict of being a clergyman and a Palestinian Arab in Israel forms the backdrop for this human drama as the author . . . tries to serve as a spokesperson for fellow Palestinians against what they perceive as injustices imposed on them by a Jewish state . . . This is recommended for those interested in a local perspective on the communal conflict in contemporary Israel." --Library Journal
