Palestine in a Nutshell
Palestine in a nutshell is a new education series dedicated to providing a succinct overview of Israel’s apartheid regime in all of its facets, and the daily oppression, dehumanization, and denationalization that Palestinians experience. Each episode will provide you with requisite information on a particular topic, and will range from history, politics, current events, concepts, etc.
Ep01: Foreigners In Their Ancestral Homeland
This episode highlights the second-class status of the indigenous Palestinian minority living in Israel. It’s important for Americans to understand that Israeli law and policy privileges Jews at the expense of Palestinians, and constitutionally distinguishes between citizenship and nationality. This is not a regime that resonates with us, and this episode will explain why. [Watch & Learn More Here]
Ep02: Home Demolitions: Politics of Dispossession
This episode explains the illegal nature and effect of Israel’s policy of home demolition in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. The military regime in the West Bank has negatively impacted the daily lives of Palestinians, the draconian home demolition policy is one example. Imagine living in a home that you built, just to have it destroyed because of who you are? No American would accept those living conditions, and we shouldn’t accept it for Palestinians.

Ep03: Separate & Unequal: Israel’s Discriminatory Dual Legal System
This episode focuses on Israel’s discriminatory legal structure in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, wherein Palestinians are governed under military laws and regulations and Jewish settlers under Israeli civil laws. The result is two unequal national communities living on the same land. This dual legal regime is uplifted by a sympathetic court system that is designed to maintain the Zionist paradigm, which necessitates Jewish supremacy. As Americans, we understand the concept of equality and human rights, so why do we allow our government to give our tax dollars to maintain a regime of inequality? This video should inspire all of us to demand full equality for Palestinians and put an end to Israeli Apartheid. [Watch & Learn More Here]
