Peace Under Fire: Israel/Palestine and the International Solidarity Movement

by Josie Sandercock et al (ed) - £15.00  Verso (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844675012 | ISBN 10: 1844675017

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was founded to support Palestinian non-violent resistance to Israel's military occupation. Its highly visible actions, which have included breaking the sieges in Ramallah and Bethlehem, as well as saving countless lives, have shone a spotlight on Israel's illegal, thirty-seven-year-old occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and threatened the governing coalition with fears that Israeli opinion might at last be turning against them. In showing what risks Palestinians take, ISM volunteers have also tragically been targeted. The deaths of Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall, as well as the shootings of others, have never been fully explained, were covered up in the US and the UK, and brushed aside in Israel as an unfortunate consequence of Israel's own 'war on terror'. This collection of accounts, drawn from the web-logs and diaries of ISM volunteers, news articles, press releases, writings from the Corrie and Hurndall families, and Rachel Corrie's last e-mail home reveals the real horror of life under occupation and describes the first signs of a new wave of international solidarity.
