Dumbo Feather speaks with MEJDI co-founder, Aziz Abu Sarah, in their “Conversations with Extraordinary People”.
Tell [Aziz Abu Sarah] he’s going to be a tour operator. Watch him laugh. But here he is, at the Dead Sea, with the National Geographic executives. Here he is, with Israeli tour guides, and Palestinian tour guides, working for his tour company Mejdi, simultaneously telling the dual and competing histories of every contested site in the Holy Land. Imams and rabbis, academics and holidaymakers, pragmatists and ideologues; they all journey with him through their preconceptions on desert roads.
Here he is, a long way from where he started.
