Mazin Qumsiyeh

Palestinian human rights activist, author, scientist and director of the Palestine Museum of Natural History, speaks about the current upheaval throughout Palestine/Israel and considers its global ramifications.

"Sadly, civilians suffer for US/Israeli policies of destabilization and mayhem. My view is that Palestine will remain an Achilles heel of western hypocrisy, and the key to conflict generation in Western Asia. Our freedom will be a key to regional and global stability.

"Perhaps that is why demonstrations were in over 50 cities and towns in occupied Palestine (including Jaffa, Haifa, Nazareth etc) and dozens of cities around the world. The world is waking up. We pray that politicians do not be the last to wake-up.

"Besides engaging in popular resistance, we continue to build for the future. "
