This week, Roqayah and Kumars welcome back returning guests Rawan Masri and Fathi Nemer, cofounders of the outstanding resource hub and archive decolonizepalestine.com. Rawan is a writer and translator working at the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit, and Fathi is currently Palestine Policy Fellow at Al Shabaka, the only independent, transnational Palestinian thinktank.
After sharing their thoughts on some of the ways Palestine advocates in the US have relied on their website as an important resource in this moment, Rawan and Fathi discuss Israel’s ongoing massacre in Gaza as well as the intensifying situation for themselves and their families across the West Bank, including the growing resistance to escalating soldier and settler violence. The gang also break down what has changed since October 7th, from perceptions of the IDF’s military capacity to the broader regional war already underway.
Follow Rawan on @RiverToSea48, and Fathi @AManInTheSun. You can find Rawan’s article on Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and decolonization on Mondoweiss, and for your go-to resource on all things Palestine, make sure to visit decolonizepalestine.com.
