The Nakba at 70

Seventy years on, Palestinians in Jerusalem continue to endure systematic attempts to force them out of their homes, while in the West Bank they struggle to remain in their ancestral homeland amid an ever-expanding settler-colonial project. In Gaza, where Palestinians are imprisoned en masse, they suffer the consequences of repeated military assaults and an ongoing siege, now in its 14th year. At this critical time, we remain committed to protecting the facts on Palestine and hope that you will find these publications illuminating.

Who's Messianic Now?
