Palestinians have been artificially divided for nearly seven decades, but from generation to generation, members of the Palestinian diaspora have neither forgotten their identity nor despaired. Diasporic Palestinians are fundamental to the struggle for equality and justice in several key ways, say journalist and author Ramzy Baroud and retired English professor Rima Najjar.

An injured counter-protester is wheeled into an ambulance during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, August 12, 2017. (Image: Democracy Now!)

A local paralegal named Heather Heyer was killed in the attack, and at least 19 others were injured. Two Virginia ...
