My Brother, My Land (S. 13, Ep. 22)

My Brother, My Land: A Story from Palestine - Sami Hermez, w...On this week’s episode of the podcast, Sami Hermez of Northwestern University and Sireen Sawalha join Marc Lynch to discuss their new book, My Brother, My Land: A Story from Palestine. This is the story of Palestinian resistance that follows Sireen’s family after walking back to Palestine against the traffic of exile.  Through the lives of the Sawalha family, and the story of Iyad’s involvement with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hermez confronts readers with the politics and complexities of armed resistance and the ethical tensions and contradictions that arise, as well as with the dispossession and suffocation of people living under occupation and their ordinary lives in such times.
