A Moral Witness to the 'Intricate Machine'
By Avishai Margalit
'I am an Israeli. I live in Jerusalem. I have a story, not yet
finished, to tell.' This is the opening line of David Shulman's
powerful and memorable book, Dark Hope, a diary of four years of
political activity in Israel and the Palestinian territories. It is a
record of the author's intense involvement with a volunteer
organization composed of Israeli Palestinians and Israeli Jews, called
Ta'ayush, an Arabic term for 'living together' or 'life in common.'
The group was founded in October 2000, soon after the start of the
second Palestinian intifada.
