Summary
In the heart of the West Bank, Othniel Assis discovers a hilltop. He shifts a large container there, acquires a generator, constructs a path and establishes a small community. But when a local army commander arrives at the site, tempers flare. The Israeli Civil Administration for the occupied territories claims that there is no permit to settle on the hilltop and, absurdly, also no permit to remove them either. Thus the outpost Maale Hermesh C is established. The hilltop blossoms: a playground, organic fields, and a synagogue; families and singles, farmers and teachers, religious and secular, an assortment of individuals who are as different from each other as are their reasons for being there. And years go by until one day a Washington Post correspondent stumbles into their midst, and suddenly the settlement's existence becomes the focus of an international diplomatic scandal. The Hilltop is a high-energy, absurdist romp through the machinations of Israeli governmental bureaucracy and has a strong claim to be the first Great Israeli Novel.
