About

Overview

This volume lets young readers learn about Israel's many accomplishments in the face of great adversity. It's a warts and all commentary on the Jewish state—a country, like many countries, that has its flaws. The battle–hardened people of Israel—Jews, Arabs, Druze, and others—are persevering against the Middle East's climate of racism, intolerance, and terror. These eight stories depict the prejudice, frustration, and heartbreak—tempered with hope—which people experience in Israel.
