"*There is this expression in Arabic that "every people live in their 
country" but for Palestinians "our country lives in us". Most 
Palestinians live in exile and many have never been to Palestine - in 
some sense it's this mythical place. I'm lucky in that I've been able to 
spend a large portion of my life in Palestine on the ground*."
