Because of the decision other people made about when and how it is appropriate for our child to learn about genocide, we chose to keep her at home yesterday and today. We want our child to learn about injustice; moral, critical thinking; and courage. We want her to grow up to be strong, fair, kind and safe. And, we think that learning about blurry dangers in a distant past does not teach her that.

The wave of Palestinians who emigrated in the pre–World War I period did not, for the most part, intend to settle abroad permanently.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) adopted donor-driven security sector reform (SSR) as the linchpin to its post-2007 state-building project. As SSR proceeded, the occupied West Bank became a securitized space and the theater for PA security campaigns whose ostensible purpose was to establish law and order. This article tackles the consequences of the PA’s security campaigns in Balata and Jenin...

In the decades just prior to the end of World War I, residents of the Ottoman Empire’s provinces alternated with ease between a variety of personal identities and affiliations. This article traces the demise of such a notion of nationality and how understandings of identity in Palestine changed under the rigid nationality system imposed by the British Mandate.

"I understand culture is life, as what you eat, what you say, and what you sing, and how you dance, and how you celebrate your history. If that is limited, then our societies will be limited in their abilities to fight and in a way, our young people will lose interest. They will not know what they are fighting for anymore which is really the greatest tragedy and the greatest defeat."

Marwan Barghouti: Decades of experience have proved that Israel’s inhumane system of colonial and military occupation aims to break the spirit of prisoners and the nation to which they belong, by inflicting suffering on their bodies, separating them from their families and communities, using humiliating measures to compel subjugation. In spite of such treatment, we will not surrender to it.
