Format: Paperback
In this book, "Doctora Swee" gives to the world what it needs to know. As an orthopaedic surgeon, she volunteered to help the war victims in Beirut after the Israeli attack in 1982. It changed her life forever. There she learned first-hand how brutal and inhumane Israel oppressed the Palestinians - things the media had failed to tell the world.
When she returned to Britain, she didn't stop there. She set up the charity organization, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), and return to Beirut a few more times within a few years.
She tells the story of the Sabra-Shatila massacres 1982, the Ramadan war 1985, and the Bourj el-Brajneh 1986-87 seige. If you don't know what they are all about, then read the book. Human tragedy of such a degree must not be silenced.
Dr Swee served as a volunteer surgeon, administrator, driver, negotiator, reporter, fund-raiser, friend, and most of all: HUMAN.
This is a story of courage, compassion, and resilience of Palestinians and the volunteers.. against the continuous and repeated destructions of Palestinians' lives, livelihood, and spirit. It sure touches your heart and soul.
And please, don't tell me this is anti-Semitic.
