ABSTRACT
The author compares the autobiographical books "al-Khubz al-hafi" (For Bread Alone), and "al-Shuttar" (The Shrewd Ones), by Muhammad Shukri, with Tawfiq Abu Wa'il's motion picture "'Atash" (Thirst). A major theme in both the books and the film reflect the realities of being a Palestinian living in Israel, living in a land with family ties, but being an outsider within the country and the outside Islamic community.
