in Palestine

“The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned … what is required, despite pessimism of the intellect, is optimism of the will.”
   -- Antonio Gramsci

.....nearly every Palestinian expresses a sure confidence in their eventual success, even if the time frame may be vague or long-delayed.  It is hard to find anyone here who accepts that the Zionist project is permanent, at least in its present form —  or that the liberation struggle will ultimately fail.
