    1. This book consists a series of letters between two ordinary, yet remarkable, women One is Israeli, the other is Palestinian They met in Geneva and agreed to correspond.In their homelands, they are brought up to regard the others as hostile aliens as enemies who wish to kill them.Over the course of a year, they discover that there are many similarities between their societies and very few differences In fact, the histories of Judaism and Islam have much in common than either have with Christiani [...]
