In a brilliant piece of detective work, Karl Sabbagh investigates the story of his Palestinian ancestors and through it the history of what was, and may become again, Palestine. Born the son of a Palestinian father but raised by his English mother in south London, Sabbagh was only a child when the United Nations voted in 1947 to divide Palestine into two states. Palestine and Palestinians had existed for centuries, their roots in the m#65533;lange of tribes, ethnic groups, and religions that peopled the area for thousands of years. Using his family tree as a guide, Sabbagh details how the descendants of these original inhabitants were forced from their homes into refugee settlements on the West Bank, Gaza, and dispersed around the world. Their desire to return to the land they feel is rightly theirs is at the root of an endless cycle of discord and violence between Jews and Arabs that is being fought to this day. With Palestine , Sabbagh bravely attempts both to illuminate and come to terms with his family's--and his people's--turbulent past.… (mehr)

from book: Karl Sabbagh's Palestinian father became famous throughout the Arab world by broadcasting for the BBC Arabic Service during the Second World War. When the war ended, Isa Khalil Sabbagh covered the fateful events of 1947-8 and later became an adviser in the American State Department. In "Palestine", Sabbagh delves back centuries in an attempt to come to terms with his family's - and his people's - turbulent past. It is a panoramic survey of the political and religious barriers that have undermined the pursuit of lasting peace.

Writer Alon Hilu has chosen to discuss Karl Sabbagh’s Palestine: A Personal History, on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject - Israel and Palestine in Art, saying that:





"I wanted to read a book written by a Palestinian person about his memories and the way he views the conflict. As a writer I write about people, not about politics. The political may be implied in the book but they are not part of the initial writing. And the thing about Sabbagh was the feelings and emotions he expressed about missing Palestine."
