In literature, there is humanity.
In Palestinian literature, there is resistance. And more so, there is existence.
Golda Meir stated that if the Palestinians were a people, then they would have literature. No one now can claim that we do not have literature. Palestinian literature has been vibrant for hundreds of years, before the Nakba, and ever since. Just as the fighters resist with stones and weapons, Palestinian writers resist with their writings.
And in such existence, there is hope.
Wasafiri literary magazine‘s new issue is devoted to Palestinian literature, entitled Beautiful Resistance. You can access it either on Wasafiri site, or on this site, or, if your institution does not subscribe to either service, then you can also access it here, on this dropbox folder that I’ve created which has all the articles in the journal.
Enjoy the articles, the fiction, the poetry, and the artwork.
