DemocracyNow.org – Dr. Izzeldeen Abuelaish was a well-known Palestinian gynecologist who spent years working in one of Israeli’s main hospitals. On January 16, 2009, two days before the end of Israel’s brutal 22-day assault on Gaza, his home was shelled twice by Israeli tanks. His three daughters and his niece were killed. He has just written a book about his life called, I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor’s Journey On the Road to Peace and Human Dignity. He joins us in our studio for an extended conversation.
