I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor’s Journey On the Road to Peace and Human Dignity

By Izzeldin Abuelaish

Mar. 20 & 27

Leaders:  Peg Bradley and Debbie Wolf

This is the story of a father who lost his children to violence of war.  Izzeldin Abuelaish, a Palestinian physician and infertility expert, worked as a senior researcher at the Gertner Institue at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv before his three daughters were killed in January 2009 at the hands of Israeli soldiers.  Dr. Abuelaish didn’t seek revenge or sink into hatred, but rather called for the people of the region to start talking to each other.  His deepest hope is that his daughters will be “the last sacrifice on the road to peace between Palestinians and Israelis.”

 

“In this book, Dr. Abuelaish has expressed a remarkable commitment to forgiveness and reconciliation that describes the foundation for a permanent peace in the Holy Land.”   President Jimmy Carter
