Nakba Tour: Exiled Palestinians living in Lebanon

Video from our May program—

In their own words, Mariam Fathallah and Amena Ashkar, tell their stories of being stateless refugees—prevented from returning to the homes they fled in 1948, and unwelcome in the countries where they now live. Now 86, Mariam has spent the last 68 years in crowded makeshift refugee camps in Lebanon. Amena was born in the refugee camps. 

 


2016 Fact-Finding Trip—Reports

Report #1: "It's not just homes that are destroyed; famiies are destroyed also."
 
Barbara Hanst, from Boulder, writes from this month's Friends of Sabeel-Colorado Fact-Finding Trip. Her first post tells about Shufat Refugee Camp in Jerusalem; a visit with Salim Shawamreh, whose home has been destroyed eight times; and a visit with Military Court Watch, which focuses on the arrest and detention of boys and teenagers for showing some signs of resistance, often by throwing stones.

  • Why do we know so little about the history and experiences of Palestinians beyond the stereotypes? "Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land" compares U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, showing how distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
