a rustle in history

The voice of the Algerian writer Boualem Sansal is a lonely and courageous voice.
He is not afraid of swimming against the tide.
He protest against dictators, at home and abroad.
He looks for peace, where people call for war. 
He receives criticism for not avoiding Israel and places where Israel is present. The criticism comes from countries with a strong monolithic political and religious culture with limited freedom for its citizens. 
His books are banned in his own country Algeria. 

Read his penetrating answers on these issues.
