S to other areas of their own country When Delisle tries to sketch a wall he is told to moveThe Delisle baby sitter s family has notice that the house they have owned for a generation or will be bulldozed for a settlement They have all the paperwork but if they hire a lawyer and lose they will have to pay for the demolition of their house Delisle meets another family living this nightmare and loses their homeThrough all this Delisle has a somewhat normal life In Israel he can blend in like a resident He gets the ids to school sketches for his books goes to cafes and meets interesting people He has workshops in different areas of Israel and students have varied reactions to his very western style material why did he do this His wife does not have a normal life working for with Doctors without Borders she has to live with the border crossings ironic and serve a clientele suffering the from poverty violence and the stress of their precarious existenceThe tone of the book is detached sometimes he s like an as shucks observer surprised at an all male wedding party without beer or at Muslims with art degrees who will not make a rendering of a person As he watches religious strifeharassment from stone throwing to bombing and shelling he affirms his atheismOverall you get the feel for living in Israel The plight of the Palestinians is clear I started this book over a year ago and put it back on shelf don t now why For me it was a great reminder of why I find Israel and Palestine so fascinating and scary as well If you re in need of easy but very informative introduction to lifehistory of Israel and Palestine pick it up It s served with a bit of humour and even the most drastic elements are left to imagination rather than exhibitionistically display on pages Great and very informative graphic journal This book would be accurately titled a bunch of random journal entries by an Ugly American in East Jerusalem Delisle spends a year in East Jerusalem with his girlfriend and their children while she works for Doctors without Borders The book is his travelogue of that time but Delisle manages to spend a year in an incredibly diverse and vibrant city and not be changed in the least by it He shows contempt for almost everyone he meets and seems continually surprised when things are different from a North American City He never asks why people do what they do just is surprised by their actionsA few examplesHe gives several presentations and workshops on cartooning to Palestinians throughout the year During the first one he accidentally shows a cartoon of a naked woman and man One might think that he could figure out that in a society where women dress modestly and often go veiled they might be a little offended by the nudity In fact a third of his audience leave immediately At the next presentation he shows the same images to see what would happen One might expect that he would learn from his first experience and be sensitive to the Muslim culture but he doesn t He does it again and againDuring passover which he bizarrely calls the Jewish Easter which shows a major misunderstanding of both holidays when Jews are forbidden to eat products with yeast in them he gets annoyed that many of his regular foods are hidden behind plastic sheeting Instead of asking why this is or is it s ok to buy them he pushes the plastic aside and takes what he wants p 241 What he doesn t realize is that by doing so he could be making many foods in the store unkosher and if someone saw what he was doing possibly cost the store store unkosher and if someone saw what he was doing possibly cost the store and money to clean up his messHe is especially critical of Israeli Jews in the Book Seeming To Have No Understanding Of seeming to have no understanding of and no desire to learn He repeatedly comments on the prevalence of weapons among Israeli Jews but never seems to ask why He eats in a cafe where people are remembering those who died at a suicide bombing at the same cafe a few years earlier but gets continually surprised that there is security guard at the door who checks his bag He never connects the dots and understands that the check is to make sure he isn t a suicide bomber He looks at a guard with a gun at Masada and comments that you see weapons even in the most peaceful places p 157 But never asks the guard why she is there or why she carries a gunHe goes to the ultra orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim a lot He draws a sign he saw on the wall that asks tour groups not to pass through the neighborhood I was in Jerusalem at the same time as he was and now that the sign continues and asks tourists to dress modestly and respect the beliefs of the residents though this part of the sign is not in the book He seems to think that the residents just don t like tourists and ignores the fact that the tourists may act in ways that are offensive to the residents I m not sure he understands that some of his behavior is offensive though clearly he doesn t care when it isThe most shocking frame of the book is when he compares ultra orthodox Jews to monkeys on page 107 I didn t get the impression that he is overtly anti Semitic but I think the last people to make such a comparison were the Germans in the 1930 sThe books reads like the journal of a man who walks through life untouched by any of it It s a random collection of images and tells no coherent story Many of the images and stories contain no explanation or if they do it is often incomplete or incorrect He generally cares only about doing his drawing but has no care to learn what or who he is drawing He s an ugly American though he is from Canada and it s a shame he wasted the opportunity of spending a year in Jerusalem If you asked me a year ago what I wanted from the graphic novel world I would have said a colorful Guy Delisle travelogue And here it is A fantastic book with color humour and depth than his previous ones and big enough that I didn t feel it went by too fast or that it wasn t worth the money It left me with Thank you God that I m an atheist That s what Guy Delisle thinks when he witnesses the spectacle of the religions in the region of Jerusalem His character in the book is a rather silly guy At least he wants you to think he s an idiot who Guy Delisle has moved around a lot with his animation job and nearly each place he goes he leaves us his impressions and experiences in a comic book Chronicles of Jerusalem is his 3rd and is a wonderful and pertinent tale of his experiences working in that crucial and controversial city The artwork is beautifully understated and the storyline captivating and compelling I really enjoyed this on.

Chroniues de JérusalemThe cartoonist author Delisle spends a year in East Jerusalem with his girlfriend and their children while she works for Doctors without Borders The book is his travelogue of that time but Delisle manages to spend a year in an incredibly diverse and vibrant city and not be changed in the least by it He shows contempt for almost everyone he meets and seems continually surprised when things are different from a secular international city He never asks why people do what they do just is surprised by their actionsAnd yet I really wanted to like this book I enjoyed his storytelling style and style of illustrating The character appears laid back and sweetly naive He starts off slowly in an apparent attempt to just report what he sees He does admit up front that Doctors without Borders supports the Palestinians and so they are given housing in the Arab uarter His girlfriend gets transportation to Gaza daily But as the story progresses you start noticing things That he never asks why things happen or why things are as they are On page 117 he claims that settlers do not work they live on charity A blatant lie Oh yes almost all Israelis are referred to as settlers On page 133 he casually refers to Tel Aviv as the capital Thereby denying that Israel itself considers Jerusalem is it s capital That s when you start noticing the bias of the bookHe points out several times the intrusive and annoying procedures ElAl the Israel airline puts him through Does he ever ask why Maybe because his girlfriend works for DwoB an NGO that sympathizes with terrorists That maybe the concern is that he too is a terrorist sympathizer and that ElAl is justified in their security concerns Nope sorry no analysis Just his annoyanceOn page 158 while visiting the zoo there s a report the Israeli army is bombing Gaza this very instant of course it goes on to detail air strikes civilian casualties closed borders Any reporting as to why Nope sorry no mention of Palestinian shelling or bombing There s a report of an ambulance being attacked We are left to assume that it was by the Israeli army That s when I began reading criticallyThat he learns nothing from his stay in Israel is apparent A few examplesHe gives several presentations and workshops on cartooning to Palestinians throughout the year During the first one he accidentally shows a cartoon of a naked woman and man One might think that he could figure out that in a society where women dress modestly and often go veiled they might be a little offended by the nudity In fact a third of his audience leave immediately At the next presentation he shows the same images to see what would happen One might expect that he would learn from his first experience and be sensitive to the Muslim

clean up his messHe is especially critical of Israeli Jews in the book seeming to have no understanding of Judaism and no desire to learn He repeatedly comments ON THE PREVALENCE OF WEAPONS AMONG the prevalence of weapons among Jews but never seems to ask why He eats in a cafe where people are remembering those who died at a suicide bombing at the same cafe a few years earlier but gets continually surprised that there is security guard at the door who checks his bag He never connects the dots and understands that the check is to make sure he isn t a suicide bomber He looks at a guard with a gun at Masada and comments that you see weapons even in the most peaceful places p 157 But never asks the guard why she Is There Or Why She Carries A GunHe Goes To there or why she carries a gunHe goes to ultra orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim a lot He draws a SIGN HE SAW ON THE WALL THAT ASKS TOUR he saw on the wall that asks tour not to pass through the neighborhood I was in Jerusalem at the same time as he was and now that the sign continues and asks tourists to dress modestly and respect the beliefs of the residents though this part of the sign is not in the book He seems to think that the

learn what or who he is drawing It s a shame he wasted the opportunity of spending a year in JerusalemCredit where credit is due I took the bulk of this review from Aaron another Goodreads reviewer Thank you Aaron This graphic novel is about a man who narrates his time living in Israel He follows his wife over who is a doctor with MSFM decins sans Fronti res Doctors without Borders This man basically becomes the house husband taking care of the Smijurija u mjerama kids and the house while trying to go out and draw what he sees around him in this country full of complexities and paradoxes This graphic novel will have you laughing shaking your head and reflecting over all that you will learn The artwork is simple but efficient explaining all about Israel It s a must for those that don t understand the Middle East conflict Since it s told from an outsider living in Israel the story rings true from his reaction and to the adventures he is barely ready to experience I highly recommend this one I have to thank Kim for suggesting this one to me This is an appropriate time to take another look at Jerusalem and Guy Delisle s book can explain to you the in and outs of what US President Trump is seeing while he is visitingGuy Delisle is a graphic artist who accompanies his wife a M decins Sans Fronti res physician to hotspots around the world. Israelin hallituksen mielestä tämä on Israelia se on varmaa Muttaansainvälisen yhteisön silmissä joka ei tunnusta vuonna 67 tehtyä jakoa tämä on Länsirantaa mistä pitäisi tulla Palestiina jos se jonain päivänä tapahtuu Kansainvälisen yhteisön mielestä pääkaupunki on Tel Aviv ja aikki lähetystöt. While in the past he has been able to work as an artist while overseas on assignment every posting is different and the one in Jerusalem did not lend itself as easily to sketching outside teaching in universities giving shows on his work and concentrating on finishing his drawings in a systematic wayThe very thing that makes Delisle effective in his role as graphic artist and stay at home husband and dad also makes him a frustrating on the ground observer He is almost resolutely non partisan and non political When bombs start to fly in Operation Cast Lead over the holiday period Dec 27 2008 January 16 2009 he tells what he heard from his position at home but he wasn t interested in being an observer He also wasn t interested in interviewing settlers in Hebron when he was asked to do graphic reportage there By the end however I could see the value in his distanced uninvolved view He drew what he observed without much editorializing He drew the extreme care some security guards took in checkpoint and airport security work the difficulties Palestinians had in getting around working living and planning for the future he drew the wall and the odd situation of Palestinians being pushed of their homes by settlers in the West Bank The denial from the Israeli state sounds like the US finding ways around giving African Americans voting rights or rights to decent education Delisle saw the sights Jerusalem had to offer always on the lookout for interesting or peaceful places to bring his wife and children or somewhere he could work uninterrupted Eight months into a twelve month tour the pastor of a Lutheran church Augusta Victoria on the Mount of Olives offered Delisle a room in which to work It was uiet and the only distractions were Delisle s own thoughts and a large organ which sent vibrations through his space He found that he d accustomed himself to grabbing the in between moments in his hectic daily life and the peacefulness of the church paradoxically made it difficult for him to complete his projects Delisle spent many frames drawing the wall It s graphically interesting he would explain The wall through Jerusalem cut Palestinians off in some cases from their school from their work from their own land What I particularly liked was his dividing the chapters by months of the year Some months had considerable drama but others reflected his dawning understanding about the situation and his learning to make up his own mind about what might be excusable behavior and what seemed like taking advantage Throughout the black and white book a map of Israel with the West Bank and Gaza drawn in chartreuse served to remind Delisle and readers that the amount of space allocated to Palestinians in Israel is very small and Israeli settlers are pushing them away even still The violent tactics and language the settlers use the virulent criticism heaped upon the government and activists by the press can be shocking to those of us who are not used to such extreme positions The vast majority of Israelis vigorously disapprove of the extreme behavior of the Hebron settlers It is hard not to respond with derision to statements like these and it is hard to see that restraint is working to underline the urgency of the situation for PalestiniansThe currents of daily life are portrayed effectively by the end of this thick graphic novel 336 pages and Delisle s tone and lack of interest serve his purposes well DESPITE HIS OCCASIONAL MISSTEPS WHEN DISCUSSING his occasional missteps when discussing Jews for instance his intentional ignorance gives us and him the opportunity to look at the situation anewI ended up ordering Delisle s Pyongyang A Journey in North Korea series and also his book Burma Chronicles He has another called Hostage which debuted in English in 2017 translated from the French Hostage tells the story of MSF employee Christophe Andr who was captured in Russia s North Caucasus in 1997 until he managed to escape months later Public Radio International has a description here From that link we learn And the truly surprising end of the story is this Just six months after he escaped Andr showed up at Doctors Without Borders and asked for a new assignment He stayed on with them for another 20 years I love these graphic autobiographers and their concentration on the miniscule humdrum realities of their ordinary lives On Thursday I tried to find a playgroup for my ids On Friday I went to this really dull party I would buy all of them every one except that these are the least value for money books ever they re always really pricey and you can read them in a couple of hours But they re soooo niceThis one is an account of a year as a trailing spouse in Jerusalem Mr Delisle s missus works as an administrator for MSF so she spends a year here a year there and he trails along as do the Ultralearning kidsJerusalem is surely the prickliest place on earth I haven t checked in the Guinness Book of World Records but can anywhere match its fantastic interconnected four dimensional jigsaw webs of crossbraided Gordiannotted undisentanglable multiple overlaid and palimpsested political religious geographical and psychological co Guy Delisle spent a year in East Jerusalem and found it nerve wracking and infuriating Because he lived in the Muslim uarter buses that serve Jewish communities will not go there and routes aren t connected Road blocks and check points add to the difficulty of getting around and routes aren t connected Road blocks and check points add to the difficulty of getting around garbage collection and electrical services are not reliable They are fine in other areas despite the eual taxes paid by all residentsDelise notes the unusual religious customs For the Jews it is a sin to throw out bread so you see it in plastic bags on dumpsters on the Sabbath announced by a horn blowing elevators stop at every floor so that work buttons need not be pushed Muslim students with arts degrees are not allowed to make images of people Samaritans who claim to have the oldest Torah hang fruit and vegetables from the ceiling for SukkotThere are short pieces of the many sects of Judaism such as those who believe Jesus is the Messiah and the Samaritans who are not accepted as Jewish by the ultra orthodox despite being a Jewish sect that never left the area hold Palestinian and Jordanian passports The author describes his harassment upon two entries into Israel with uestions such as Why does your wife work in Gaza and Did you speak to any Palestinians in Norway and long detentions Internal interrogations are freuent Cities settlements and sections have blockades Interrogations can be long and create lines are so long that many cannot cros.
