Jessica Rovansek's insight:

This was sad, it was about 9-11. It reminded me of the attacks and bombing that happened in my book.

Jessica Rovansek's insight:

This article explains the war that was going on in Jerusalem. It’s about the Jewish vs. Palestinians struggle for control of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. It talks about the property destruction, mosque vandalizing and injuring of people that occurred during this war. All this violence threatened the democracy and society of this country because Jewish-Arab cities in Israel and politicians were backing a wave of legislation intended to reduce the rights of Arab citizens. JEWS began settling in occupied territory, and the strategy of settlement was before Israeli independence, when Jews and Arabs fought for ethnic dominance over all of British-ruled Palestine. By settling the land, Jews set the borders of the future Jewish state, but by doing that they were re-enacting the past by reviving an ethnic battle.

A Woman in Jerusalem

A Woman in Jerusalem | A Woman in Jerusalem-Suicide bombing | Scoop.it
A woman in her forties is a victim of a suicide bombing at a Jerusalem market. Her body lies nameless in a hospital morgue. She had apparently worked as a cleaning woman at a bakery, but there is no record of her employment.
Jessica Rovansek's insight:

"A Woman in Jerusalem" was a story about death. An innocent woman living in Jerusalem was killed in a bombing at the market. She had been a cleaning woman for a bakery, but no one had noticed she was      missing. When the weekly newspaper came out with an article trashing the bakery for neglecting a worker and leaving her body unidentified in a morgue, the bakery's personell manager took on the responsibility of reuniting the deceased women with her family for a proper burial. Along the way of identifying the women and preparing for her funeral, the personnel manager who had never noticed the woman before was now falling in love with her beauty. He becomes more involved with her life then he ever intended to. His guilt for neglecting his worker turns into love and a new found sense of humanity.

The Battle for Jerusalem

"Why do we become suicide bombers? Because we have no hope. We have no future", says Ibrahim a 70-year old Palestinian farmer. Why? Because in 1996 he had much of…
Jessica Rovansek's insight:

The video I watched was about the holy war in Jerusalem. The video explained the fighting and battle that went on between the Jews and Arabs. The Arabs claimed the city as their own, but the Jews wanted to take over, which led to Jerusalem being split in two. The Jews wanted more land and to claim it as their own, but the Arabs put up a fight. A lot of violence broke out as the fighting went on. Jews were kicking Arabs out of their homes, and they didn’t feel they belonged in their own towns anymore. It talked about the Palestinian Government and how they mistreated all Arabs. It was a bad time for Arabs, which ultimately leads to the suicide bombing.

Jewish National Fund

Jewish National Fund | A Woman in Jerusalem-Suicide bombing | Scoop.it
Charitable organization specializing in development of Israeli land and infrastructure, especially planting trees.
Jessica Rovansek's insight:

This article is about the once bloody war zone, now tourist memorial, Ammunition  hill. The battle that took place on Ammunition hill was one of the bloodiest battles Jerusalem had seen, and was six days long. The Israel forces were to capture the hill and Jordanian police training center to gain access to the old city of Jerusalem. The fighting that took place on the night of June 6, 1967 lasted four hours, and in those few short hours   36 men lost their lives. This site is more than just a memorial to all those who fell in battle for Jerusalem; it is also a museum, in the      reconstructed bunker.

The German Mujahid

The German Mujahid | A Woman in Jerusalem-Suicide bombing | Scoop.it
Based on a true story and inspired by the work of Primo Levi, The German Mujahid is a heartfelt reflection on guilt and the harsh imperatives of history. The two brothers Schiller, Rachel and Malrich, couldn't be more dissimilar.
Jessica Rovansek's insight:

This book is like the one i read because it deals with both death and guilt. This book interested me because it seemed really sad, but it seems exciting in a random kind of way.

According to this article after someone dies, the deceased, according to
