Robin Yassin-Kassab

Author and political blogger Robin Yassin-Kassab argues that Palestinians have a strange stateless existence very like the Jews had in the past. They can’t really own anything, and can neither invest in land, because it will be taken away, or in business, because it will be destroyed, so they invest in education and culture. As the land disappears from under their feet, their identity as a nation paradoxically grows stronger.
