Roots of Resistance: The intifada brought Palestine home

Omar Dajani writes about being a college student in the U.S. during the first intifada, “the transformations it effected were no less personal than political. For many of us who had never visited the Holy Land, the intifada brought Palestine home. It was our introduction, our initiation, our gateway to an addiction that I suspect few of us have managed to kick.” This post is part of the series “Roots of Resistance: 25 year retrospective on the first intifada.”
