Summary
As a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem, Sami Al Jundi had one ambition: overthrowing Israeli occupation. With two friends, he began to build a bomb to use against the police. But when it exploded prematurely, killing one of his friends, Al Jundi was sentenced to ten years in an Israeli prison. In jail, Al Jundi's unlikely transformation toward nonviolence began. He was welcomed into a highly organized, democratic community of Palestinian political prisoners who were required to read and discuss topics ranging from global revolutions to the history of the Middle East. Al Jundi left prison still determined to fight for his people's rights- but with a very different notion of how to undertake the struggle. He eventually co-founded a program in Jerusalem, bringing together hundreds of Palestinian and Israeli youth
