The shaping of the Palestinian identity and the Palestinian national project
In this episode you can hear Bassam, the host of the podcast: "PreOccupation: A not so brief history of Palestine."
Bassam emphasizes the importance of telling the Palestinian story and the futility of trying to counter hasbara (a term in Hebrew that refers to the advocacy for Israel, a form of propaganda).
He explains that we should distinguish between the shaping of the Palestinian identity, the collective consciousness, and the Palestinian national project. When and where did these emerge and who can be considered the first Palestinian?
We also talk about how the Palestinian identity, despite insurmountable obstacles, has been so successful in surviving.
