Norman Finkelstien American political scientist, activist, professor, and author writing about Rana Shubair ”Rana Shubair gives us an insider’s view of her “beloved Gaza,” the open-air prison where periodic Israeli assaults turn people into “numbers,” and where daily life is at the mercy of a “power switch” going on and off (mostly off). In Shubair’s telling, love becomes the only means of resistance, so as to remain “human beings like them”– those who are free. Love of country and of people, love which no one can jail, proves to be a source of human and literary creativity.
