Opinions about the Palestinians are as black and white as was Yasser Arafat’s headscarf. Some see only a persecuted minority, living under a military regime others focus exclusively on the atrocities of Palestinian terrorists.

Johannes Gerloff looks behind the scenes. He interviews dignified sheikhs, stern Quran scholars, politicians and residents of refugee camps. Thereby, he does not ignore “the other side”: Jewish refugees from Arab countries. He experienced the heated mood at Arafat’s funeral and accompanied rocket launchers in the Gaza Strip.

Surprising background information and theological reflections complete the picture.
