ONE MAIN PURPOSE: to present information about daily life and struggle in the Occupied Territories of Palestine and Gaza. The blog also includes poetry by Palestinian writers – the passion of the blogger.
This is NOT an attempt to present a “balanced” view of news from Palestine. “News” from main-stream-media in the West provides information from the Israeli viewpoint. It is not an attempt to explain Palestinian internal politics.
The purpose at the outset was to provide information for Americans who are ignorant of the situation of the Palestinian people.
This is a one-person project. I am a retired college professor with two assets: time, and skill at researching. I welcome suggestions for material to include here, and I welcome comments. This site has already achieved a wider readership than I expected, but you can help it reach even more people – especially Americans.
Thank you. Harold Knight
