Eagle Feather Tasked to Remind World Pacifists about Gaza Catastrophe
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian author Habib Ahmadzadeh sent the English version of his novel "Eagle Feather," recently translated by US translator Paul Sprachman, to world pacifist groups on the occasion of the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
Written years ago, the book narrates the story of the Abadan siege by Iraqis during the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88) and civilians' resistance against the invaders, which is the same as what is happening in Gaza these days.
"Regarding Gaza massacre, I decided to send my book to world pacifist groups to make them aware why Gaza's citizens are defending their land without any armor. I attached a letter to the books before sending them," Ahmadzadeh told the Iranian students news agency.
In the letter, he mentioned that 400 citizens of Gaza have lost their lives in recent days and how the book is a true story which he himself experienced in his youth and how his experience resembled what is now going on in Gaza.
He mentioned in his letter that he wants to share his experience with other people throughout the world and also expressed his hope that the world will be filled with peace and justice in near future.
