ى عائلته التي ما تزال تعيش في مخيّم بائس في قطاع غزةكذلك يروي عطوان تفاصيل لقاءاته الاستثنائية مع شخصيات عالمية، بما في ذلك تناوله الشاي مع مارغريث ثاتشر، وعطلة نهاية الأسبوع التي قضاها في كهف أسامة بن لادن، وحواراته المعمّقة مع ياسر عرفات، فضلاً عن الشجار الذي نشب بين العقيد معمر القذافي وشاه إيران والذي شكّل خلفية سبقه الصحافي الأول، ولقائه المثير مع رفيق الحريري، ورسالة جمال عبد الناصر المفاجئة إليه التي كانت البذرة التي أسّست لرغبته بالكتابة والعمل في الصحافة. A bland wishy washy autobiography In his desire to build a well rounded David Copperfield like narrative Atwan compromises truth by being politically correct and by promising to reveal what really happened instead of saying it openly Half the truth is often a whole lie which means this book can be misleading if you want to know what was said in the interviews the journalist had with the many kings princes and presidents he met for the last 40 years or so

I ve read this book written by the acclaimed journalist Mr Abdel Bari Atwan Founder Editor in Chief of al uds al Arabi a London based Arabic daily newspaper a memoir that represents an autobiography of his life molded into a very interesting list of events that affected and still affecting the shape of the Arab world now and extraordinary encounters that had an impact on his career including Osama Bin Laden in Tora Bora Margaret Thatcher Colonel Gaddafi King Abdullah sincere meetings with Yasser ArafatAs a personal judgment I believe this book is a must read for every Palestinian and a highly recommended material for anyone interested in the history of the middle east and it s relations and involvement in the Palestinian cause and inspirational for any ambitious individual as it s one of the most touching and honest success stories I ve read or heard of so farThe book lists a few stops in Atwan s life starting with his birth in 1950 in a refugee camp Dir El Balah due to the displacement of his family from his village Isdud by the IDF Israeli Defense Forces through his youth on Gaza s beach and his teenage years in the same circumstances that the vast majority of Palestinian kids of that time suffered which inspired him to do something different in his life rather than depressing him A positive way of thinking the Palestinians master due to the fact that they got used to oppression and got rid of the irrational decisions and acts that come with it and decided to fight the occupation in his way by exposing the Israeli cruelty and oppression on the Palestinians along with any regime or Leader helping the Israelis or covering up their crimes which gained him lots of enemies and several bans from entering some Arabic countries or distributing his daily newspaper in itAbdel Bari Atwan started his when he was only 18 journey moving within the Arab world among Jordan Egypt Saudi Arabia Libya for education then for a living such as most of the Palestinians a sad truth that he embodies in describing how he went hiding at the graduation ceremony from his colleagues because he didn t have a mailing address to exchange with them as he didn t know where is he going nextAs a Palestinian it would have been impossible not to have been involved in politics as Atwan states in his book pg 91 describing his participation in demonstrations and protests in Alexandria and Egypt during his higher education being chosen as the spokesman of the Palestinians in Cairo university at the time where the Palestinian cause was supported by Jamal Abdel Nasser then ending up being deported in Sadat s eraA few startling anecdotes in his life that eventually ended up with him working for Alshar Al Awsat a Saudi Arabian funded newspaper in London office until when after a day of the first intifada on which many Palestinians had been killed the paper ran a football story as front page news instead of pictures of Israeli atrocities This pushed him to set up the newspaper al uds al Arabi which has made him a household name in the Arab speaking world despite being fought and bullied by many Arabic regimes and through times where the staff of the newspaper in a very touching and brave decision decided to go for months without wages it managed to pass the pipeline and gain recognitionHe says he could not go along with an Arab media that was conservative state controlled and complacent Al uds has been a brave much needed critical voice and despite its criticisms of them Atwan has been able to obtain interviews with many Arab figures and a well known voice hosted often by many Satellite channels such as Al Jazeera CNN Sky News BBCLondon became known as Beirut on Thames in the 1980s and 90s and Atwan provides a fascinating social anthropological description of the city s many and varied Arab communities including a great description of the famous Edgeware road in London with a new lightHe devoted a whole chapter for Yasser Arafat he had what he describes as a love hate relationship with the PLO leader and here we find many previously untold personal recollections and anecdotes about Arafat some hilarious some deeply movingInsisting on his right to return to Palestine where he hopes to be buried Atwan relates three sometimes painful and awkward visits to the Gaza strip in the 1990s and the difficulties faced there by his children born and raised in London visiting their relatives who live surrounded by barbed wire He identifies the irony of this two way culture shock and concludes that he has become a perpetual exile never truly at home either in London or his native homelandAtwan proclaims I am Palestinian anti Zionist and socialist and that my own belief in the principles of justice and fair distribution of wealth while definitely left wing are pragmatic For him journalism is a weapon of resistance Some of his comment is reserved for the Western media s pro Israeli bias He points out When an atrocity was committed against the black people of South Africa we did not witness a rush to provide balance in the form of an Afrikaner carefully explaining his agendaA revealing memoir put together with humor and honesty one can t read without having a strong opinion about it and can t help but to admire Atwan s success story because at the end of the day a Palestinian cannot afford not to succeed in his path as there is no home to go running to
