I SHALL NOT HATE
By Izzeldin Abuelaish, in a monologue version for the stage by Silvia Armbruster and Ernst Konarek

"On January 16, 2009 at 4:45 pm, Israeli tank shells were fired into the bedroom of my daughters. Bessan, Aya, and Mayar were instantly killed, along with their cousin Noor. Because the Israeli military had banned journalists from accessing Gaza, I gave a daily phone interview to an Israeli TV reporter. Minutes after the attack, I called him at the station; he broadcasted our conversation on-air. The news spread rapidly around the world."

This is the story of Dr. med. Abuelaish, a Palestinian gynecologist and fertility expert. He narrates the daily life in Gaza, waiting at Israeli checkpoints, family life between hope and despair, and the deadly attack. He would have every reason to hate Israel, yet he continues to fight for understanding and reconciliation with Israel: "Hate blinds and leads to irrational thinking and behavior. Peace is humanity. Peace means respect. Peace is an open dialogue. More needed now than ever before."

At the Hamburg Private Theater Days 2015, the production by Ernst Konarek received the Monica Bleibtreu Prize in the category "Best Contemporary Drama." The jury writes in its justification: "The economy of means, the seriousness of the presentation carried by desperate humor, the unusual and surprising view of a topic that we thought we already knew - nothing better can happen to us theatergoers than to be deprived of our certainties and animated to active hope, authenticated by the power of a performer: Mohammad-Ali Behboudi."

"An evening of great intensity." - Stuttgarter Zeitung

"The chamber drama, emotionally stirring through facts, became a moving theater evening with Mohammad-Ali Behboudi's emotionally intense interpretation and the minimalist set" - Stuttgarter Nachrichten

"The play vividly portrays the humiliating harassment that Palestinians endure under Israeli rule (...) The last sentence "It is time to sit down and talk to each other" lingers long in the silence that follows. A magnificent piece" - Göttinger Tageblatt

In 2010, 2011, and 2013, Izzeldin Abuelaish was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
