Publisher Comments:

A chronicle about a trip to Palestine right before the start of the Iraq War in 2002, this story experienced and narrated by one of Frances most prestigious contemporary journalists studies the situation of the Christian Palestinian community, a disadvantaged and often forgotten minority within the Arab-Israeli conflict. Combining reflection and travel writing, the author invites readers to acquaint themselves with a Holy Land torn apart by a half century of conflict and submerged in fear and uncertainty. The Christians daily lives are portrayed in all of their bitterness, but the narration goes beyond a mere recounting of anecdotes in order to show how the Christian community of Palestine finds itself torn between its faith and its undeniable patriotism, a difficult situation that endangers its survival.


La crónica de un viaje a Palestina justo antes del estallido de la guerra de Irak en el 2002, este relato vivido y narrado por uno de los más prestigiosos reporteros franceses contemporáneos estudia la situación de la comunidad cristiana palestina, una minoría desfavorecida y habitualmente olvidada dentro del conflicto árabe-israelí. Combinando la reflexión con la literatura de viajes, el autor invita al lector a conocer una Tierra Santa desgarrada por medio siglo de conflicto y sumida en el terror y la incertidumbre. La vida diaria de los cristianos es mostrada en toda su crudeza, pero la narración va más allá del mero recuento de anécdotas para mostrar cómo la comunidad cristiana de Palestina se encuentra dividida entre su fe y su innegable patriotismo, una difícil situación que hace peligrar su pervivencia.
