I Shall Not Hate is a Palestinian doctor's account of his extraordinary life. Abuelaish lived in Gaza but worked in Israel as a physician. He is a humanitarian who sees the need for improved health and education for women and the father whose three daughters were killed by Israeli shells in 2009. Instead of seeking revenge or sinking into hatred, Abuelaish called for the people in the region to start talking to each other.
