The Hour of Sunlight
As a teenager in Palestine, Sami al Jundi had one ambition: overthrowing Israeli occupation. When one of his friends was killed by a bomb they tried to make, al Jundi was sentenced to ten years in prison. In an Israeli jail, Al Jundi was welcomed into an organized, democratic community of political prisoners. He left prison with a very different notion of how to undertake the struggle for his people’s rights.
