    Mini Series - A History of Palestinian Resistance Part 1 - A Sky With No Stars

    As British Imperialism and Zionist setter colonialism descended upon Palestine, why was there no Palestinian Mao, Che, or Ho Chi Minh? Why did no single Palestinian figure emerge to unite the Palestinians and (successfully) stave off this threat?

    This mini-series opener takes a very close look at the learning landscape of Ottoman Palestine, and the learning journeys of the Palestinian notables, in an attempt to answer this question.

A Must Listen!

This is a brilliant, engaging, accessible, and important history of Palestine. For those who have read Palestine: A Four Thousand Year History, this is an excellent companion that focuses on more on Palestinian peoplehood, particularly in modern Palestine. ❤️🇵🇸✊🏻

Rich and Beautiful

Great for those of us without the guidance and time to learn (in depth) about Palestine on our own. Beautiful and thorough look at the land of Palestine, and its people throughout history.

🍉more then Zionism

I’ve deep dived into the last 100 years of Palestine and Zionism. Just starting a deep dive into Christian Zionism. But it’s refreshing to not define Palestine to recent history and just celebrate the cultural and heritage! I’m to the peasant revolt and I hope you it goes into ordinary people in future episodes. Great job🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🍉🍉🍉🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🍉🍉🍉
