When Raja Shehadeh first started hill walking in Palestine, in the late 1970s, he was not aware that he was travelling through a vanishing landscape. These hills would have seemed familiar to Christ, until the day concrete was poured over the flora and irreversible changes were brought about by those who claim a superior love of the land.
In late l991 and early 1992, at the time of the first Intifada, Joe Sacco spent two months with the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, travelling and taking notes. Upon returning to the United States he started writing and drawing Palestine, which combines the techniques of eyewitness reportage with the medium of comic-book storytelling to explore this complex, emotionally weighty situation. He captures the heart of the Palestinian experience in image after unforgettable image, with great insight and remarkable humour.

Where the Line is Drawn
As a young boy, Raja Shehadeh was entranced by a forbidden Israeli postage stamp in his uncle's album, intrigued by tales of a green land beyond the border.He couldn't have known then what Israel would come to mean to him, or to foresee the future occupation of his home in Palestine. Later, as a young lawyer, he worked to halt land seizures and towards peace and justice in the region. During this time, he made close friends with several young Jewish Israelis, including fellow thinker and searcher Henry. But as life became increasingly unbearable under in the Palestinian territories, it was impossible to escape politics or the past, and even the strongest friendships and hopes were put to the test.
Writings on the Wall
Palestinian Oral Histories
The voices of ordinary civilians experiencing the effects of war are often lost in the cacophony of claim and counterclaim by parties in a conflict. This book preserves the testimonies of ordinary Palestinians pasted up on the bare concrete of Israel's illegal Wall, which is designed to disrupt Palestinian lives and appropriate Palestinian land. They have been collected and translated by the Sumud Story House project of Bethlehem's Arab Educational Institute. Each oral history occupies a single page, yet each conveys the fears, the hopes, the resolve, the humanity of Palestinians under a brutal military occupation, and their unwavering determination to realise a better future for their children.
