This book is a biographical account of a very eventful and stormy period of the occupation of Palestine, told by the late Archbishop of Jerusalem, Hilarion Capucci. Capucci explains how he joined the ecclesiastical hierarchy and why he became intimately involved with the Palestinian struggle to regain their homeland.
In an “honest-to-God” trip into the dark side of Israeli occupation, he exposes its crimes and excesses before the world. Capucci speaks openly about smuggling weapons and explosives for the PLO, his eventual arrest, trial and imprisonment in Israel, and his friendship with PLO leader Yasser Arafat.
The narrative reveals the mind-set of a very determined and principled man of religion who was undaunted by fear and driven forward by faith for the sake of his people.
