Why has the Israeli/Palestinian issue proved so intractable?Why does the Western mantra affirming the separation ofChurch and State fail to resonate throughout the MiddleEast? Isn't it time to eschew platitudes and simplisticsolutions? Shouldn t we start by heeding the dissonantchorus of those many stripes of Jews, Christians andMuslims living within Israel s borders? Who are these Israelis anyway? They are a heterogeneousarray of more than thirty-three nationalities, ethnicitiesand religions, totaling eight million souls, who live cheekby jowl in an area (7850 sq. miles) roughly the size ofNew Jersey. The Negev Desert comprises three fifths of itslandmass. Additionally, two hundred and fifty six millionvirulently hostile neighbors surround Israel, the majorityof whom wish for nothing less than its total obliteration. FAMILY MATTERS, Courageous People in the PromisedLand describes the multicultural, multiethnic, multireligious composition of Israel and the ideologicalevolution that has occurred, over three generations, in the twenty families interviewed and photographed.It relates these peoples ideals, goals, realities andchanging attitudes spanning nearly a century. Theirstories are amazing profiles of courage, faith, hardship, love, success and failure. Whether you are a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Druze, Baha i or Bedouin, had your ancestorsimmigrated to Israel rather than to America, such talescould have been yours."
