New Internationalist

Cover for August 2002 - Issue 348

August 2002's Issue

NI negotiates the difficult terrain and emotional minefield that is the present day Holy land.

Suicide bombings, selective assassinations, military incursions, house demolitions -will it ever stop? NI takes stock of the issues that underlie the perpetual crisis in the Middle East. We focus in on the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. We gather a number of voices and perspectives from both Israelis and Palestinians who are committed to justice and reconciliation. We examine the underlying issues and weigh up the forces for essential change in both Jerusalem and Ramallah.

Every month, we put up a selection of articles from the magazine. To enjoy the complete magazine, subscribe and receive three free issues and a world map. Or buy a digital subscription which gives you unlimited access to all magazines since 2007 and for a year after purchase on your computer or mobile device, in their original full-colour design.
