A Harvard-educated Palestinian physician who was raised in a Gaza Strip refugee camp recounts the 2009 bombing attack that killed his daughters, describing how he has cared for patients on both sides of the conflict and won awards for humanitarian acts urging peaceful resolutions.

McMillan Palgrave

By turns inspiring and heartbreaking, hopeful and horrifying, I Shall Not Hate is Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish's account of his extraordinary life. A Harvard-educated Palestinian doctor, he was born and raised in a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip and "has devoted his life to medicine and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians" (New York Times). On January 16, 2009, Abuelaish lost three of his daughters and his niece when Israeli shells hit his home in the Gaza Strip. Instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred, he has called for the people of the region to come together so that his daughters will be "the last sacrifice on the road to peace between Palestinians and Israelis."

An amazing account of a life lived under much hardship and daily challenges faced with grace, faith, and courage. Dr. Abeulaish is a man of courage, character, and integrity as well as an outstanding writer. Beautifully written, emotionally wrenching, and inspiring, this book is a must read. It is an eye-opener about the decades long Palestinian-Israeli conflict and its lasting effects on the innocent people caught in the middle of the political and military agendas.

Very human and touching book about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Izzeldin provides a comprehensive view of the situation of Palestinians in Gaza using a very simple language . Despite his family drama, he tells his story without hatred or wish for revenge but with the hope that humanity and good faith between the parts will end the conflict.

A difficult read, but worthwhile and one of the most balanced looks at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict I've read. A great look at how healthcare and healthcare professionals can bridge the divide between people and play a great role in peace movements. The author is an inspiring and incomprehensible example of how hatred can be overcome in the worst circumstances.
