Note: 
Tempel, a German journalist, facilitated this exchange of letters between two teenagers living in Jerusalem. The Palestinian girl is constrained; the Israeli voluble and critical of Israeli society and the Sharon government. Between them, they present a reasonable sample of opposing views. Excellent for discussion of issues involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, for a demonstration of free versus unfree speech (the Palestinian girl's name is not her real one), and for what it suggests about the choices and life options open to young Israeli and Palestinian women.
