Popular Protest in Palestine

Marwan Darweish, Andrew Rigby

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


Defenders of Israel’s expropriation of Palestinian lands rely on various narratives to legitimise their territorial expansion and associated dispossession of Palestinians. One of the dominant motifs upon which they have relied is that of Palestinians as barbaric terrorists that threaten the security of the Jewish people living within Israel (Shehadah, 2020). There has been a long history of unarmed Palestinian resistance to the Zionist project, and it is the aim of this chapter to outline the main features of this history, from its first manifestations in the late 19th century up until the recent past.
