Israel and Palestine are nothing but dots on the map, yet one of the world’s major political and religious conflictshas been raging there for over half a century. Between the snow-covered Golan Heights in the North and the Red Sea beaches in the South, the descendants of Zionists and refugees from war-torn Europe, immigrants from Ethiopia, Eastern Europe and the world over have made their homes alongside the Palestinian population in their rigorously demarcated territories.
Anyone trying to make sense of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians needs to be aware of the extreme polarity of these contrasts. Martin Schäuble, one of the leading authorities on the region, chose to travel this contentious landscape on foot to further deepen his understanding of it. He spoke to orthodox Jews and desperate Palestinians, followed the protest movement in Tel Aviv, visited former Palestinian minister Hanan Aschrawi, and hiked a long stretch of the journey in the company of noted author David Grossmann. Overcoming considerable bureaucratic obstacles, he even managed to make an excursion into the Gaza strip.
