Palestine in a Nutshell is the first "flip-book"
dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian crisis in two
equal and unbiased segments.
a Nutshell begins with a study of Israel's ancient
biblical history and follows the Jews from their expulsion
from Israel (the Diaspora) through centuries of anti-Semitism
and finally the return of Zionist Jews to their homeland
in the 19th century.
Israel in a Nutshell goes
on to describe the new state of Israel's struggle
to maintain and expand its territory and protect its
citizens from from belligerent Palestinians
living within Israel’s borders. Israel in a Nutshell
concludes by navigating readers through the series
of peace treaties beginning in Camp David and ending
with the latest 2003 Geneva proposal.
in a Nutshell begins in the same historical period
as its Israeli counterpart but concentrates on the
rise of Islam and the Ottoman period. Following
Al-Nakbah (the “catastrophe) of 1948, Palestine in
a Nutshell focuses on the plight of the Palestinian
refugees, the rise of the PLO and the development
of militant organizations, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and
Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. Palestine in a Nutshell
then concludes by exploring the Palestinian perspective
on controversial issues including refugees, Jerusalem
(Al-Quds), “freedom fighters” and settlements.
