    Joe Sacco Palestine Pdf

    JOE SACCO ( -), "Palestine" Preface by Edward W. Said () Download the Graphic novel (PDF, mb, in english). 9, Issue 2, Nov , (available as pdf online). Ayn Bartley, “The Intercontextually in Joe Sacco's Graphic Narratives”, College Literature, Vol 40, no. 3. Prior to Safe Area Gorazde: The War In Eastern Bosnia —Joe Sacco's breakthrough novel of graphic journalism—the acclaimed author was best.

    It was a tough read due to the subject matter. I also wasn't fond of the art on a personal level. I did immensely appreciate Joe Sacco's motivation for writing this graphic novel. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Joe Sacco said: "I grew up thinking of Palestinians as terrorists, and it took a lot of time, and reading the right things, to understand the power dynamic in the Middle East was not what I had thought it was And basically, it upset I had a hard time getting through this graphic novel. And basically, it upset me enough that I wanted to go, and, in a small way, give the Palestinians a voice - a lense through which people could see their lives. There are two ways in which Palestinians are portrayed - as terrorist and as victim. There may be truth in certain situations for both descriptions, but Palestinians are also people going to school, who have families, have lives, invite you into their home, and think about their food. Me will usually just get the Israeli sympathetic viewpoint from the media. The author wanted to get the other side of the story, the side that is grossly under-represented you might even say misrepresented in the American media. He wanted to see and hear, first hand, the Palestinian story. My God, what a depressing story. If you haven't, there is something wrong with you. This was quite a powerful panel in the novel. A former inhabitant of one of the jails points out how the prisoners are not given proper eating utensils, bathrooms, showers or basically any other living necessity therby forcing the Palestinians to live like animals just to survive their prison term.

    He interviews children in hospitals, unemployed men, and impoverished school teachers. The author parses how systemic racism on both sides perpetuates the conflict.

    Grudges towards both sides are handed down to each generation, keeping the fighting at a perennial boiling point. Sacco interviews ex-prisoners and learns that most Palestinian men are imprisoned on wrongful convictions and that going to prison is a rite of passage. The prisons are humanitarian disasters with squalid conditions. Sacco partners up with a Japanese photographer named Saburo and they interview refugees together.

    They learn about children murdered by Israeli soldiers. The stories are difficult for Saburo to endure, but Sacco has little problem putting them to paper.

    Sacco interviews a man named Ghassan who was wrongfully arrested for a crime and brutally tortured. Ghassan was almost left for dead until a court ordered his release. Sacco explains Ghassan's story is not the exception.

    Sacco investigates how non-stop conflict and racist policy is crippling the Palestinian economy. Because of arbitrary and dense bureaucracy, Palestinian businessmen cannot turn a profit despite otherwise successful business ventures. Sacco interviews women and questions the hijab.

    He determines that Muslim women believe they have a choice yet they are punished if they go against society. Sacco teams up with a Palestinian man named Sameh who lets Sacco stay with him. Sameh organizes more interviews for Sacco. Sameh's job is put in jeopardy because he helps Sacco, but Sameh persists. Sacco witnesses more depravity and suffering in the world's worst refugee camp, Jabalia, which has the highest population density in the world.

    Tensions are high about the conflict and the Muslims Sacco meets have heated anti-Israel sentiments. Sacco meets many citizens in Palestine who have suffered at the hands of the Israeli soldiers, from imprisonment, to torture, to the murder of family members.

    Sacco investigates the Zionist origins of Israel and how the movement's racism created the current conflict and refugee crisis. Sacco visits settlements and Israel protests. Sacco journeys to many refugee camps to interview Palestinians. He hears harrowing accounts of Israeli Soldier brutality towards the refugees. He interviews children in hospitals, unemployed men, and impoverished school teachers.

    The author parses how systemic racism on both sides perpetuates the conflict. Grudges towards both sides are handed down to each generation, keeping the fighting at a perennial boiling point.
