The Settler: A Novel of Modern Israel

by Orit Arfa

The journey of a good girl to glittery party girlWhat would you do if you were dragged out of your home by your own army?Tel Aviv. Israel's very own city of sin. And for Sarah Dakar, the metropolis becomes just that once she is evacuated from her home in Gush Katif, Gaza by the army she once loved and admired -- an army to which her brother lost his life. She never believed the "Expulsion" -- as she called this historic 2005 event -- would happen. As she settles in Tel Aviv to begin university while her family adjusts to life in government housing, she begins to question the values she once held dear: belief in God and the Jewish state. The dance floor of the world-famous Tel Aviv nightclub, Atlantis, provides fertile ground for the rebel-in-waiting. Its liberal and charismatic owner, Ziv ...

The 1st Gulf War

by Morris and Harvey Morris

On January 17, after negotiation, threats, and economic sanctions had failed to make Iraqi President Saddam Hussein undo his 1990 invasion of Kuwait, the United States and its allies launched a major air assault on Iraq. The sustained bombing heavily damaged Iraq's infrastructure as well as taking many lives. A ground campaign begun on February 24 added to the Iraqi death toll, which was estimated by some U.S. government officials to be between 100,000 and 200,000 soldiers. (Estimates of civilian casualties were almost impossible to come by.) Fighting ended on February 28, with Iraq driven out of Kuwait. Immediately afterward, President Saddam Hussein had to deal with internal rebellions by Shiite Muslims in the south and Kurds in the north. The massive destruction, shortages of food, clea...

A Short Introduction to the Crusades

by John Lord

The great external event of the Middle Ages was the Crusades,—indeed, they were the only common enterprise in which Europe ever engaged. Such an event ought to be very interesting, since it has reference to conflicting passions and interests. Unfortunately, in a literary point of view, there is no central figure in the great drama which the princes of Europe played for two hundred years, and hence the Crusades have but little dramatic interest. No one man represents that mighty movement. It was a great wave of inundation, flooding Asia with the unemployed forces of Europe, animated by passions which excite our admiration, our pity, and our reprobation. They are chiefly interesting for their results, and results which were unforeseen. A philosopher sees in them the hand of Providence,—t...

Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict

by Obadiah Shoher

Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict, by Obadiah Shoher, abandons moralizing and ideological hubris to view Israeli-Muslim struggle in terms of raw realpolitik. Terrorism is historically normal mode of war. Israel must respect terrorists as efficient warriors - and kill them. Nuclear terrorism is unavoidable, and it will hit America before Israel. We must learn to tolerate and mitigate its damages. Shoher makes the case that only by shedding liberal idealism the West can win against Islamists. Espousing political rationalism, he deplores both Jewish and Muslim myths, and argues for efficiency and separating politics from moralism....

In Her Own Way: Love and life between wars

by Ilana Rabau-Friedman

The happy life of Michal, a young and lively nurse from Kibbutz Degania, is suddenly turned upside down when she is widowed in the Yom Kippur War. The story of her painful adolescence, from the Six Day War up until the Lebanon War, is an allegory of the maturing of the country. Through the stories that she weaves of three generations - her parents' generation, her own generation and that of her children - the author describes, with great sensitivity, the adrenaline-filled life in Israel in that epoch. Through deep and sharp observation of complex family relationships, the loves, desires, moral dilemmas and deep friendships of her characters, she exposes a nation, most of whose inhabitants appear to suffer from post-traumatic syndrome. Nevertheless, they do not lose their optimism, and are ...

The Tears of Aisha: The Curse of Cain Part I

by Gary Pike

This gripping tale starts with the psychotic delirium of Cain in the primaeval desert of what will later become the Holy Land. Cain's mind is dominated by an old man only he can see, and who condones his psychopathic behaviour, eventually leading him to fratricide and setting the stage for the novel which is based on the duplicity and indivisibility of good and evil. Cain's revulsion at what he has done sets off the conflict between what he feels is right and what he knows is wrong, and the old man in his mind pronounces a curse of immortality on Cain's head by which he will never know peace or rest, but will be destined to roam the world for all eternity unless he can undo the evil he has authored. Cain's immortality means that the old man, his schizophrenic alter ego, also becomes immor...

Seeds in the Wind

by Mary Ovian and Anna Ovian

Part Armenian history, part World War I history, but most dramatically, Seeds In The Wind is an intimate portrait of one family’s struggle to survive and triumph – with dignity and humanity – over the most life-threatening adversities. Mary Ovian, daughter of Armenian immigrants, has written a compelling and captivating narrative of the 1915-23 Genocide as witnessed and told by her mother, Anna Samsatlian Ovian. As a young girl in Adiyaman, Turkey, Anna recalls her peaceful childhood: sharing a home and adventures with relatives, visiting the vineyards and orchard groves at harvest time, the “delicious smells” of the fascinating and boisterous market place, care-free days at school, family engagements and weddings, and the religious rituals of the Armenian Apostolic Church, pract...

Flight From Syria: Refugee Stories

by Hugh Eakin and Lauren Gelfond Feldinger

Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories features the writing and photography of nine Pulitzer Center grantees– journalists who reported on Syrian refugees between 2012 and 2015.

Each of the journalists– Hugh Eakin, Lauren Gelfond Feldinger, Stephen Franklin, Joanna Kakissis, Alia Malek, Holly Pickett, Alisa Roth, Alice Su, and Selin Thomas– lends a unique perspective. Originally published in Al Jazeera, BBC News, Guernica, In These Times, Marketplace, NPR, The Atlantic and The New York Review of Books, these stories tell of an abandoned homeland, an indifferent world, and an uncertain future. They trace the history of one of the biggest displacements of modern times– provi...
