The bluffer’s guide to Israel and Palestine


Nigel Varndell first went to the Occupied Palestinian Territories ten years ago and has been going back every year since. He has talked with politicians, soldiers, gunmen, religious leaders, NGO workers and everyday people in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
