    There are really only 1. Joy finally succeeds in removing the memory and pulls Sadness away from the console, but not before a new sad core memory is created. Riley's headquarters gets an upgrade with a new button for puberty. Her parents comfort her, and they all talk about the things they miss.

    This book is not about suicide bombers. Bing Bong starts a party in the classroom with balloons and confetti. If change is to come, Israelis themselves will drive it. Tens of thousands of Palestinian citizens continue to live in so-called unrecognized villages, which are officially not recognized by the state, receive no public services, and could be demolished by the state at any time.

    Joy and Sadness realize that they could be sucked up and sent back to headquarters. Back at Palestine Inside Out book, Anger gets the idea to have Riley run away back to Minnesota to create more happy memories, but decides to let her sleep on it. When Sadness tries to touch a core memory, Joy quickly pulls her hand back, knowing that the memories can't be changed back once they're turned sad. Demographics The underlying theme of the book is of demographics, the Israeli project to empty the land of Palestinians and not allow the right of return under any circumstances. Affording Palestinians control over 22 percent or less of their historic homeland would do little to rectify the injustices that diaspora Palestinians have suffered. The combined weight of personal stories of abject suffering, harsh statistics in the past seven years, Israeli military operations have killed Palestinian children and facts on the ground make Makdisi's case that the occupation is destroying the Palestinian people, and possibly any chance for peaceful coexistence.

Nightly raids, curfews, harassment by settlers, home invasions, Palestine Inside Out book gas attacks, rubber coated metal bullets, sonic boom attacks at night to disrupt sleep, Palestine Inside Out book torture, arrests, human shields, beatings, bulldozers smashing homes with or without occupants, uprooting and burning of agricultural production, machine guns, tanks, armoured Palestine Inside Out book and tanks invading streets, helicopters and jets patrolling overhead — there does Palestine Inside Out book appear to be a moment that the Palestinian people are not subject to some form of humiliation, deprivation, and cruelty from the Israeli occupiers.

Undeterred, Joy and Bing Bong head into a building, with Sadness reluctantly following. There is little that the Palestinians, neighboring Arab states, Europe, or the UN could do to stop Israel if it chose to annex the West Bank, and there is little the United States would choose to do to stop Israel.

With Sadness too depressed to walk, Joy has to spend the night dragging her through long term memory, where they encounter Forgetters, who have the job of sending Riley's faded memories to the dump.

Makdisi notes that Israel has never created any new towns or cities for its Palestinian citizens but has built many hundreds for Jews. The professional book-reviewer will hardly complain about this state of affairs.

Joy finally succeeds in removing the memory and pulls Sadness away from the console, but not before a new sad core memory is created. By abandoning the violent Algerian model of national liberation and instead adopting an antiapartheid or civil rights model of peaceful protest for equal rights, Palestinians would garner much more support for their cause.

Somehow under current circumstances, neither seems practicable or achievable without a major dynamic shift in either the Israeli viewpoint or that of the United States and its European allies. In a de facto manner, there already is one state, Israel, with many little prison like cantons scattered in parts of the West Bank, segregated by the wall, the bypass roads, and the settlements along with the associated rules and regulations that trap the Palestinians in an ever decreasing realm of violent non-mobility.

Joy can see how the other emotions can be useful, except for Sadness, because she doesn't ever want Riley to be sad. She notes that Palestinians did not rise up against Egypt or Jordan during their year occupation of the Gaza Strip and West Bank and that Palestinians never had an independent state in Palestine.

This idea is anathema to many ideological Jews as well as Evangelical Christians and even some liberal-leaning Americanswho are apparently loath to see the Holy Land shared by Jews, Muslims, and Maronite Catholics. All prohibitions on land and property sales to Jews in the West Bank would be abrogated, although restrictions on Palestinian ownership of state lands would not be altered.

Joy and Sadness make it to Goofball Island, where they try to walk the lightline back to headquarters, knowing that one misstep will land them in the memory dump below.

Israel's Occupation, however, is less a conventional history than a carefully argued critique of the statist illusions of traditional commentary. The book is currently available online at Amazon's link below:. Joy and Sadness follow in an effort to rescue Bing Bong.

They will abandon their homes and go to the big cities at which point it will be possible to expand the borders of the State of Israel without paying the demographic price. Yet this doesn't detract from the urgency of Makdisi's work. Makdisi is a literary scholar, a specialist in Romantic English poetry at UCLA, and in many ways, writes in the grand tradition of his uncle and philosophical mentor, the late Edward Said.

Book Review: Palestine Inside Out

Still, LeVine and Mossberg believe exploring the concept is a worthwhile exercise because doing so could offer insights into new solutions since old ones are clearly inadequate. But, to paraphrase Marx, the point is not merely to understand the occupation, but to terminate Palestine Inside Out book.

Bing Bong leads them through Preschool World to get to the station. What direction this state takes is largely up to Israelis. On page one of the introduction, you are introduced to a unique Palestinian tragedy. His ultimate purpose is to demonstrate that Israel has destroyed the option of a two-state solution "a geophysical impossibility" which it never really desired in the Palestine Inside Out book place.

Joy hands Sadness the sad core memory she found, and she takes Joy's hand and they both touch the control button.

With renewed determination, Joy finds Bing Bong's rocket ship, and sings its broom engines to life. During the creation of Israel, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced transferred from their homes, and forcibly prevented from returning afterwards, despite their moral and legal right to do so.

Apparently, the outcome of such negotiations will have to allow Israel to maintain overall security control of the West Bank, to keep all settlement blocs but not necessarily smaller settlements scattered deep inside the West Bankand to maintain control over a united Jerusalem. In Decemberthe United Nations Security Council passed Resolutionwhich condemned Israeli settlements as illegal and a threat to the eventual development of a Palestinian state.

Each island is connected to Headquarters via lightlines, and has the appearance of a small theme park. Indeed, the opposite is usually true. Make a contribution to support the Palestine Chronicle.Indeed in one sense there is absolutely nothing new in Palestine Inside Out.
