Abstract: 

Published each issue, this section strives to capture the tenor and content of popular conversations related to the Palestinians and the Arab-Israeli conflict, which are held on dynamic platforms unbound by traditional media. Therefore, items presented in this section are from a variety of sources and have been selected because they either have gone viral or represent a significant cultural moment or trend. A version of Palestine Unbound is also published on Palestine Square (palestinesquare.com), the blog of the Institute for Palestine Studies. Stories from this quarter (16 August–15 November) include the Palestinian hip-hop documentary Palestine Underground; the viral spread of one Great March of Return protester’s photo, which was extensively compared to the famous French painting Liberty Leading the People; and Palestinian celebration over the resignation of Avigdor Lieberman as Irael’s defense minister, which generated the hastag #Gaza_tantasir (Gaza_victorious).
