MINNEAPOLIS, MN(January 3, 2011) Palestinian physician, humanitarian and author Izzeldin Abuelaish will discuss his book I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctors Journey on the Road to Peace and Human Dignity, on Thursday, February 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis.

I Shall Not Hate recounts in stark detail Abuelaishs upbringing in the refugee camps of Gaza, his scholarship to study medicine in Cairo, and his career as a doctor in service to his community and the region. Despite practicing in some of Israels best hospitals, Abuelaish lived with the daily indignities of being a Gazan commuting across the militarized border.

Abuelaish made international news when his daughters were killed by an Israeli army shell and he declared on a live broadcast on Israeli television that I shall not hate. Abuelaish has resolved to fight for reconciliation with something more productive than violence and destruction. His pleas for understanding, on both sides, has thrust him on to the world stage as a unique voice of humanitarianism.
Abuelaish will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
