The Palestinians, Myths and Martyrs by Johannes Gerloff - Book - is currently on backorder. You may still purchase now though and we'll ship as soon as more become available.
Johannes Gerloff is a professional journalist, a studied theologian and he is German. With all that carries with it in relation to that nation’s past treatment of the Jewish people – culminating in the Holocaust during the NAZI regime in WWII – it is that much more significant that Johannes and his wife and children have lived in Israel for the past 22 years. Not out of feelings of guilt for the past, but because of a Godly calling, he has dedicated his journalistic skills to providing balanced reporting on issues and events in Israel and the Middle East. He has covered a multitude of significant events in times of relative peace, but he has also put his life at risk reporting in times of conflict and even outright war.
His many and varied contacts among Israelis, Arabs and Palestinians at all levels of society – from shepherds to saints, from common laborers to high level government officials – have given him unique access to the hearts and minds of the people as well as deep insight into the issues they are dealing with.
Besides excellent historical background and insight into the political developments in the Middle East according to International law established between the World Wars and afterward, you will hear real testimony from people on both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and amazing stories of things that Johannes has experienced himself during his time in the region.
