it was amazing

This book will challenge what you think you know about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as your understanding of "radical" Islam.

Mosab Yousef was born and raised in the West Bank and was taught from a child to hate Israel and Jews in general and to do everything in his power to cause them harm. Watching the constant attacks from Israeli soldiers on men, women, and children didn't help to change this indoctrination-- he could see the violence on a daily basis with his own young eyes. It wasn't until he became a young adult that he began to see both sides of the problem and question everything he was taught.

This is a true story: sad, poignant, gripping, and well-written. After you read it, you'll want to google his name online and watch some of his more recent interviews...they are amazing.
