Intellectual Resistance and the Struggle for Palestine

That dissident intellectual voices, Jewish anti-Zionist and Palestinian, which have sought to counter the hegemonic narrative of Zionism through intellectual acts of resistance, connect to the material acts of resistance on the ground in Palestine, whether in the acts of resistance of stone-throwing youth in the Intifada and suicide bombers seeking to enact a new conception of the biopolitical, is an important aspect of dealing with oppressive circumstances in a colonial context.
