The Palestinian narrative is most genuine and most powerful when Palestinians tell their stories of resilience following the ethnic cleansing of their land by Israel in 1948. The love of their land and culture the hold that that love has over their lives resonates generation after generation, even for those who now, years later, live the diaspora. This love of their land and culture is the driving force behind their resistance to occupation.

We came across an interview of Dr. Ahmed Abdulmadgeed who now lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He is the son of refugees who were driven out of their Palestinian village during the Nakba in 1948 and fled to Gaza. They moved from Gaza to Qatar where he was born, then to Canada before coming to the US. Ahmed is now a Pharmacist, and his wife a nurse. His story is so typical, even though he has been in the diaspora most of his life. Here is how he handles his identity as a Palestinian and a Muslim.

The interview takes place at the Indiana Center for Middle East Peace, and is conducted by its director, Dr. Michael Spath.
