There is a huge amount of sun a huge amount of sand and a huge amount of water All around you people speak a language you understand but your sadness and your loneliness and your alienation intensify A desire possessses you to describe the sea to your girlfriend but you feel lonely With reason or without they curse your people yet they enjoy what your people have left behind Even while swimming or joking or kissing they damn your people Is the sea not capable of granting them a single moment of innoncence and affection so that they can forget about you for a moment? How can human beings feel hate while they are stretched on the sand? Saturated with sun salt and longing you head for the beach snack bar You drink a beer and whistle a sad song and all eyes turn to you You busy yourself with lighting a cigarette that has no taste and you buy an ear of corn and eat it all by yourself You wish to be able to spend the whole day at the beach in order to forget that it's a feast day and your family is waiting for you But the time of your daily appointment at the police station is approaching and you remember all that is happening to you And in the blink of the eye the color of noon the sea and the sky turn even blue Then you leave Last night I picked this book off the shelf I read the first page and I was hooked There are books that effect you and then there are books that KILL you yes kill you This book falls in the latter A beautifully written book every word touched my heart Its an extremely beautiful one describing the Palestinian days in a genius way A Must read bookما هو الوطن ؟هو الشوق إلى الموت من أجل أن تعيد الحق والأرض ليس الوطن أرضا ولكنه الأرض والحق معا الحق معك، والارض معهم They taught you to be wary of happiness because it hurts when it betrays A fine must read to understand Palestina but also our humanity I came across this book at the small gift shop at the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem It’s part of a series of collections of essays by Mahmoud Darwish The Journal of an Ordinary Grief contains a mix of unforgettable personal stories and sharp dissection of the dynamic of the IsraeliPalestinian uestion The absurdity of his condition of existence under virtual house arrest in Haifa unable to secure travel permits to his ancestral village to be with his family is one that will always stay with me His succinct and sharp social commentary encapsulates the essence of the IsraeliPalestinian issue in will ring true to anyone who has visited Palestine “Their Palestinian war is silent but effective And their survival just the fact of being there and their role in political life however modest is a victory in the tough war they’ve been waging for the past uarter century by all available means dissent demonstrations strikes procreation poetry identity insistence on saying “We are Arab” patience waiting Are they psychologically exhausted? Yes but they do not surrender That which exhaust s them most is the long wait yet waiting feeds their identity on a daily basis” I have to put this book in historic perspective Darwish was a Palestinian born in 1941 As a child he lived through the foundation of Israel This book was first published in Arabic in 1973 after the Six Days War forty years ago It explores the author's attempt to understand what it means to be an Israeli ArabDarwish was a poet As a right brained person who lives in the US I had difficulty understanding parts of the book I layered in some biographical information on Darwish and reviewed modern Middle East history as well as the translator's forward and notes I was able to understand much For me the strongest parts were the interviews of Israeli Arabs in prison the difficulty that Darwish had trying to obtain travel documents and his explanation of the position of Israeli Arabs in Israel This book gives a excellent perspective on the Middle East conflict I also heard echoes of the situation of occupied peoples in the US
