Popular Resistance in Palestine: A History of Hope and Empowerment by by Mazin B. Qumsiyeh

| |

Qumsiyeh, a Palestinian Christian, gives detailed histories of Palestinians, including Christians, and their perspective on their struggle to survive—from the occupation of the Ottomans to the current occupation of Israel. Historic and recent events weave through this dramatic account that describes activities you would not believe possible by people considered civilized. But the book also shows the effectiveness and bravery of nonviolent resistance, with principles used by Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. Qumsiyeh believes that peace with justice is possible in Israel and Palestine and, in fact, may be within reach. (Pluto Press)
