General History
"The facts and information are important in order to undo the damage done to the Palestinians through a long history of distortion, of prejudice, of stereotyping, and of exclusion and denial. Knowing the facts, knowing, gaining this knowledge and information means that one has the responsibility to stand up and to speak out."
Hanan Ashrawi, politician
