or Egypt to do
business for
Israel. because
they can nego-
tiate between
both worlds.
An Israeli
Muslim will
use this very
short Hebrew,
like 'Get me
the glass,'
Rosenthal
while in
Egypt, he'd
say, 'Would
you be kind enough to get me that
glass?' He can bridge both worlds."
By spending so much time with
Israel's Arab population, Rosenthal
learned something fascinating about
herself as well.
Rosenthal had long suffered from a
rare degenerative disease called "kera-
toconus." Diagnosed with it in 1969,
she said her sight has continued to
worsen. She never met anyone who
had the same condition, and eventual-
ly, it got so bad that she had a cornea
transplant while working on the book.
"I was in. Nazareth with four Arabs,
and I mentioned I was donating part
of profits from the book to the Organ
Donors Society," she said, which led
to a discussion of her disorder.
"They were all journalists, and one
woman was the editor of Arab
Cosmopolitan," she said. "They asked
me the disease's name, and I said,
`You've never heard of it.' Three out of
four of them had someone in their
family with it, and none of them was
related."
Later, she told an Israeli Jewish
woman about this coincidence. She,
too, had it, in both eyes.
In doing further research, Rosenthal
managed to track down an American
ophthalmologist who worked for a
time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where
the majority of his patients had the
disease.
"It's prevalent in Syria, Saudi Arabia,
Iran and among Jews and Arabs in
Israel," she said, "so it's definitely
genetic."
Rosenthal's transplant was complete-
ly successful. About donating a por-
tion of the proceeds to the Organ
Donors Society, she said, "Jews,
Muslims and Palestinians generally do
not donate organs. They think it's
against Islam and Judaism.
"I'd like the money to go to educa-
tional materials to be written by an
imam in Arabic and in Hebrew by a
rabbi explaining that it's not against
either religion." I I
