This book is a record of over forty years of advocacy on behalf of Palestine: “Sister Miriam Ward’s four decades of bearing witness as documented in numerous letters to the editor, op-eds, articles, and book chapters provides us with a unique moral voice and an intimate look at Israeli/Palestinian history and US complicity.

With a principled clarity and an uncanny and intimate understanding of events as they unfold, she recognizes that thoughtful criticism of Israeli policy is different from anti-Semitism, that the key to ending this conflict lies not only in security for Israelis, but also in justice for Palestinians: an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and siege of Gaza and Palestinian second class citizenship in Israel, and a resolution of the decades long refugee crisis. She challenges our mainstream media calling attention to the nuances of language, the underlying attitudes that assume Jewish victim to Arab victimizer, and highlights the danger that Jewish privilege and Israeli militarism have for all of us. This book is an urgent plea for honesty, justice, and nonviolent resistance and a powerful tribute to a gentle, loving soul who was grounded in theology and a strong sense of persistent outrage, a brave and unwavering challenge to stereotyping and racism.” [Dr. Alice Rothchild, physician, activist, filmmaker & author of "Broken Promises, Broken Dreams."] “As a woman of principle and courage, Sister Miriam was a gentle soul yet a fierce defender of peace who spoke truth to power. She put her principles to good use in challenging bigotry, racism, exclusion, discrimination, and violence, especially as practiced by the Israeli occupation against Palestine. As someone whom I knew for more than three decades, Sister Miriam touched the hearts of people everywhere, but held a special place in the collective ethos of the Palestinian people." [Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, Member, PLO Executive Committee, scholar, legislator and activist.]
