"So Near, Yet so Far": In October 2000 Al Durra Mohamad dies in his father's arms in Israeli cross-fire. Millions of people in the Arab world watched the death of this Palestinian child; it had an especially strong effect on children, who give expression to their anger in extraordinary ways.
"Light at the End of the Tunnel" describes the problems involved in reintegrating Palestinian prisoners released from Israeli prisoners. They have considerable difficulties dealing with traumatic memories and family tensions.
