Pressestimmen

"Sari Nusseibeh's "Once Upon A Country" is a subtle, sad and humorous memoir which casts a fresh light on the Israeli-Palestinian tragedy as well as a vivid picture of Palestinian society." --Amos Oz, author of "A Tale of Love and Darkness" and other books
"This is a compelling narrative of a life lived at the cross-roads of history, which is also a moving personal story of an individual of rare integrity who creates a political vision that is both true and useful. It is difficult to find the "middle ground" in the Middle East conflict, but Sari Nusseibeh opens up a space for reflection and dialogue that balances the cunning of history with the irony of one man's adventures and aspirations. As he confronts his own complex circumstances, Nusseibeh reveals a landscape of hope, generosity and justice that makes this a crucial text of our times." --Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University, author of "The Location of Culture"

"This is the story of how Sari Nusseibeh, committed all his life to Palestinian national liberation, committed himself also to Palestinian-Israeli peace. Modestly told, but wonderfully engaging, it is a tale of political independence and moral courage." --Professor Michael Walzer, Institute of Advanced Study, author of "Politics and Passion: Toward a More Egalitarian Liberalism
""Sari Nusseibeh is a man of enormous personal integrity, courage and vision. If the people of Israel and Palestine some day enjoy the peace and national sovereignty that they deserve, they will owe a lot to Sari Nusseibeh' s pioneering leadership."-- Paul Wolfowitz
""Once Upon a Country" is a subtle, sad, and humorous memoir that casts a fresh light on the Israeli-Palestinian tragedy, and a vivid picture of Palestinian society as well."-- Amos Oz, author of "A Tale of Love and Darkness
""From the first elegant sentence, Sari Nusseibeh uses his poetic sensibility to illuminate the dislocation, oppression, fratricide, and extremism that have plagued his ' violated and broken land.' In his honest and unsparing account of a remarkable life, this courageous advocate for peace makes clear why this tragic conflict is so enduring, and a resolution so essential."-- Richard North Patterson, author of "Exile

Synopsis

Born into a prominent family with deep roots in Jerusalem, Nusseibeh reluctantly became involved in politics, constantly aware that co-existence with Israel is possible. Hated by extremists on both sides, he has always held fast to the principles of freedom and equality which have guided all his decisions, no matter what the personal cost. His beautifully-written memoirs, interwoven with the story of his larger family - and with the history of the Palestinians since before 1948 - are a rare view into what the Arab-Israeli conflict has meant in reality for a Palestinian family. The consequences of the 1967 war changed things even further for Nusseibeh's life in Jerusalem - not always negatively. Appointed by Arafat to be the PLO representative in Jerusalem, we get a first-hand view inside the workings of the first Palestinian Authority, and a close-up of Arafat himself. "A deeply admirable book by a deeply admirable man." New York Times -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Das Buch von Sari Nusseibeh ist aus verschiedenen Gründen sehr empfehlenswert: Die L eserin/der Leser begleitet Sari Nusseibeh nicht nur durch sein Leben und seine intellektuelle Entwicklung, sondern bekommt sehr intensive Einblicke in den Nahost-Konflikt, insbesondere in die Entwicklung der letzten 40 Jahre. Tief beeindruckend ist Nusseibehs grundsätzlich gewaltfreie Einstellung und seine ständige Bereitschaft, zu verhandeln, miteinander zu reden, friedlich und normal-menschlich miteinander umzugehen. Er hat diese Einstellung, obwohl er, mit kurzen Unterbrechungen, seit mehr als 40 Jahren den Schikanen und Menschenrechtsverletzungen seitens der israelischen Regierung und ihrer Armee gegenüber den Palästinensern in der West Bank und Ost-Jerusalem ausgesetzt ist. Besonders interessant sind auch die Vorgänge um die, zunächst ja noch im Exil lebende, PLO-Führung, die Einblicke in die erste und die zweite Intifada, sowie die nunmehr wohl als gescheitert zu betrachtenden Osloer Friedensverhandlungen, in deren Folge die von einem zukünftigen palästinensischen Staat nichts weiter als isolierte Inselchen in der West Bank übrig geblieben sind. Für den an Palästina Interessierten ist das Buch ein wesentlicher Baustein. Leider ist es auf Deutsch kaum, bzw. nur zu horrenden Preisen erhältlich.

Nusseibeh, the main author, is a professor of phylosophy and, as his father, was very much involved into the palestinian politics during the recent decades. He is a palestinean trained in Oxford/UK and worked also as an accademic in Massachusetts. The book is more or less an eyewitness report embeded in a historic development, in this case in the middle east. It starts during world war II and ends at the beginning of this century. Although quite critical, Nusseibeh describes the palestinian position of the constant palestinian-jewish conflict in the middle east. The english language stil is quite formidable but good readable even for me as a non-native English speaker. I liked this book because it describes the political and social developement of the recent decades in the middle east, which I only knew from the histroy books or reports from the media. It opened my eyes how complicated life in Israel for Palestinians, as well as in general the arabic-jewish conflic is, and how difficult living conditions of the ordinary arabic people in this region are.

HASH(0x9f7d9a58) von 5 Sternen Neither black nor white . . . 20. Mai 2007
Von Ronald Scheer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Written by Palestinian peace activist Sari Nusseibeh, this book is an immensely readable personal and political memoir - an account of a life lived in a "broken and violated land." Descendant of a patrician family in Jerusalem, tracing its history back to the seventh century, the author was educated in England and, following in his father's footsteps, devoted his years to advocating reason and nonviolence in the resolution of Arab-Israeli conflicts. A student and later a professor of philosophy, he first believed that Arabs and Israelis could live together as citizens of a single nation. Then, after the 1967 war, he came to the conclusion that a two-nation solution was in the best interests of both peoples.

Over the years, in his account, he has watched both of those objectives resisted and undermined by the objectives of those with political power - the Israelis through a campaign of seizing territory in the West Bank for Jewish settlements, and the PLO by demanding the return of all occupied lands. Meanwhile, moderates such as himself are cast as "dangerous," and his efforts at building bridges between Arabs and Jews are often frustrated. When the intifada of the 1980s flares up, Nusseibeh plays a strategic role in secretly writing and publishing materials that provide it with a voice and direction, channeling the energy of street demonstrations away from violence. And he is instrumental in building a nation-building organization to set the stage for Arafat's return from exile in Tunis to govern the West Bank and Gaza. At the same time, he is reaching out to peace activists among Israelis, even while the second intifada surges to life and Arab extremists begin to have a deadly impact with suicide bombs.

The entire story - which brings us to the present with the building of Sharon's walls and the victory of Hamas in Palestinian elections - is a continuing account of hopes raised and then crushed. While it can be read as an indictment of Israeli policies against the Palestinians, it portrays the PLO as ridden with corruption and the Islamist Hamas organization as blindly and dangerously irrational. Moved deeply by visions of Jeffersonian democracy, Nusseibeh is confronted over and again with the extreme difficulty of seeing reason prevail in the service of government, diplomacy, and building social institutions. What he falls back on at the end is a belief that the fundamental decency of humans - as reflected in sacred scriptures - will eventually lead people to see the folly of their ways. This is a fine book for portraying a moderate and measured history of the Arab-Israeli conflict from 1948 to the present. Readers may also enjoy Jeffrey Goldberg's "Prisoners: A Muslim and a Jew Across the Middle East Divide."

HASH(0x9f3d59a8) von 5 Sternen Towards a just peace between Israel and Palestine 19. April 2007
Von H. S. Shapiro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Nusseibeh's book allows us to break through the stereotypes of the Palestininan struggle and see behind the images the humanity of a people struggling for an end to the Israeli occupation of their land. Far from the images of unbridgeable fanaticism, Nuseibeh offers us another view of people prepared to compromise in order to ensure an end to this bitter conflict. His represents the only way forward in this conflict--acceptance of two states--viable and contiguous in their territories; a shared Jerusalem; and a reasonable solution to the problem of refugees that involves acknowledgement of loss and compensation. I urge people to read this book for its honest recognition of the shortcomings of Palestinian politics and its generous and rational understanding of the needs and pain of two peoples.

HASH(0x9f90daf8) von 5 Sternen Once Upon a Peace Maker! 8. August 2007
Von AA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a truly important book for anyone wishing to understand fully the Arab / Palestinian - Israeli conflict. It sheds tremendous light on very important events, thus far not fully presented from the Palestinian side, especially that of the non rejectionist Palestinian camp. Sari Nusseibeh is a truly visionary man with tremendous courage and is a highly gifted activist and indeed very clever politician despite his own denials.

I have thoroughly enjoyed, and was often moved by, the first half of the book which dealt with the history of Nusseibeh's family and contained his even handed description of the events leading to 1948 and all the way through the 1967 war and his subsequent return to live in Palestine with his British wife. Nusseibeh's portrayal of the lives of the Palestinians between the wars of 1948 and 1967 was very helpful.

In the second half of the book Nusseibeh hammers in, over and over again, on the tacit unspoken alliance of the extremists on both sides and shows how Israel supported the creation of Hamas as a counter weight to the Fateh and PLO. He coherently and very persuasively presents the thought process that he went through to move from the one state solution to the two state solution and demonstrates very effectively the threats that prolonging the conflict would cause to it.

Nusseibeh was often right at the center of things or at least presents himself as such; we see him as a leading figure in standing up to the Israelis and to the Islamists, we see him as the key engine behind the first intefada, or uprising, and we see him winning the respect and approval of Yasir Arafat. In this, second, half, this book moves from being a truly exceptional account of the personal and family history more into an aggrandizing politician's memoir. This should not reduce nor detract from the tremendous personal sacrifice and commitment Nusseibeh made to his cause.

I have heard of the peace work of Dr. Nusseibeh and read some of his articles and interview for some years and while I admire him more than any other Palestinian public figure, this book troubled me in a number of ways. Unlike the other three Palestinian memoirs, originally written in English, that I have read (Gada Karami, Fay Kenfani & Edward Said) Nusseibeh sought to justify every action he has ever taken, to defend his various historic positions and to settle the scores with those of differing views. Most unlike the other three biographies, the book contained virtually no retrospective sole searching whatsoever and important topics such as his obvious passion and skill for politics vs. his academic eccentric persona were packaged for the purpose rather than thought through. Nusseibeh repeatedly simply presented himself as the reluctant professor, yet left us wondering about his very savvy organizational, political and survival skills. He seemed to know exactly how to deal with wily old Arafat, Hamas, the Israeli intelligence and the various factions of the PLO yet retain the freedom to advance his own agenda as well as build important relationships with Israelis.

The tremendous heights, in which, Nusseibeh holds his father, a former Governor of Jerusalem, ambassador and member of cabinet gives the feeling of an immature biography lacking in the distance to be objective. Indeed the first half of the book contains rework of the some of the father's own unpublished memoirs. Obvious points such as the father's commitment to an idealistic form of pan Arabism, albeit non Bathist and non Nasserist, and Nusseibeh own movement into being Palestinian nationalist, seeing Palestine being in natural alliance with Israel did not cause him to reflect further on the role and thinking of his father. A respectful critique and contrast of the views would have enhanced and not hindered the understanding of his father and need not be disloyal to his memory.

Most grating perhaps is the competitiveness displayed with other Palestinian peace advocates and the various attempts at discrediting them. This was particularly evident in describing the efforts that led to the Geneva Accord, which Nusseibeh referred as the plan by the name of the Israeli negotiator, thus marginalizing the Palestinian partner. At some point Nusseibeh clearly fell out with Hanan Ashrawi and Dr. Barghouti, both articulate advocates of the Palestinian cause and for peace and coexistence with Israel, he made his disdain of them very obvious and has not troubled himself to analyze their positions even in retrospect.

HASH(0x9f90daec) von 5 Sternen A moderate palestinian's story 1. August 2008
Von Joey L. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a memoir written by a professor of philosophy who is also the current president of Al Quds university in East Jerusalem.

After getting through his father's history in the early chapters, University professor Sari Nusseibeh realizes the central problem between the Israeli and Palestinian coexistence: neither sides understanding of the other side. It takes him meeting Israeli students at college, and flying on an Israeli ariline, and teaching at Hebrew University before he begins to see the similarities between the two. And thats where he evolves his ideas about peace.

A central concept of his is that both sides are allies, NOT enemies. He even goes as far to say that the two are more like allies than the united states/israel and palestinians/arab states are allies.

Unfortunately as the occupation of the west bank and gaza continues throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s, he sees a different kind of arab majority emerging from the areas, that is bent on the concept of eradicating the Jew, instead of working with. As his story progresses we see how the author gets involved in politics and attempts to keep the two state solution as a viable option, while trying to maintain his own logical understanding of what was transpiring.

But as we come to the 2000s, Hamas gains most of the support of the palestinians, wins elections and violence ensues.

The author is not hopeless. He does speak of trying to advocate a peaceful two-state solution by teaming up with Israelis in the Peace Now movement and in the government, to get the peace that both sides seek. He writes up a two state solution, that would allow Palestinians to have the borders from pre-1967, and allows palestinian refugees to return to palestinian areas, and Jews to jewish areas.

Only concerns i have with his memoir book are of misrepresentations of Israeli actions. He states that the Israelis invaded Lebanon in 82 without "any bullets being shot from lebanon." That's misleading. The PLO were launching rockets into kiryat shemonah and nearby cities which was provoking the Israelis during this turbulent time for the lebanese people, to maintain peace in southern lebanon.

Ina few other places he tries to place more blame on Israel rather than sharing it with the palestinian people, a product of his upbringing more than malicious intent.

However Sari Nusseibeh is not Hamas and not an islamic fundamentalist. He isa two-state solution advocate who writes mostly about using non-violent disobedience. As the reader I wondered, if more palestinians were like Nusseibeh perhaps the world opinion would change towards them? But Nusseibeh DIDNT grow up in a refugee camp, was educated at Oxford and Harvard, and lived a different life than the majority of palestinians.

So perhaps palestinians as a whole dont see life as he does? And maybe this book is as much a minority views as that of the suicide bombers?

Hopefully not, because Nusseibeh portrays himself as a peace seeker. and thats what is needed in Israel and Palestine.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
In a work so compelling that I could hardly put it down, Nusseibeh describes in personal terms the struggles for freedom of the Palestinian

people. His personal courage, that of the many people whose generosity

he cites, and the example of his father's service to his people is most inspiring. If you did not know it before, after reading this book you will understand why the Palestinian people need their own state and

freedom to act as the People they are.
