A newly released best-selling novel for teens, REVER LA PALESTINE (DREAM OF PALESTINE), sympathetically protrays a young Palestinian who becomes a suicide bomber. The fifteen-year-old Egyptian author, Randa Ghazi, who lives with her family in Italy, writes about Palestinian teenagers who fight “bloodthirsty Jews, who assassinate children and old people, profane mosques, and rape Arab women.”

DREAM OF PALESTINE is being touted as “surprisingly mature” and “a great text of suffering and hope.” One of the novel’s heroes calls for Jihad against the Jews who are a “doomed people” and to “kill all Israelis.” The main character is encouraged “to kill hundreds in his suicide bombing” and later does blow himself up along with five Israelis.”
