  1. The Jewish people jettisoned the national name “Palestinians” in favor of the national name “Israelis”.

    The local Arabs, lacking people-hood or a national identity, picked up the discarded word, dusted it off, and began the marketing of themselves as the “Palestinian people” as part of their propaganda and fight against the true native people here — the Jews.

    1. Exactly, which is why it is important to tell the truth about Palestine. Millions are being invested in a propaganda campaign to “rebrand” and it is working in Europe and around the world. Clever marketing can sell anything as narrative.

  2. Are these pictures taken in cinema? This documentary has been around for a while. I’ve always wanted to see it.

    1. Sorry seeing this after so long. There are two movies on topic, these photos were taken at a showing of Orchestra of Exiles in Jerusalem, Israel.
