Before I came to Lebanon I didn’t know anything about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Zip. Zilch. Zero.
I thought Israel always existed..and Palestine was just a small country..Embarrassing I know, but world history was never one of my strong points.
Throughout eight years of high school and university, not once did I learn anything about the Middle East. Really, not once.
Friends of mine gave me two books to read written by a family friend of theirs..who lived in Palestine before, during, and after the British mandate.
Jerusalem Crossroads taught me the history of the conflict and the region, under the guise of a love story between a Palestinian man and an Israeli woman.
I loved it.
