Hospitality

As is generally true across Arab societies, Palestinians highly value generosity and hospitality. Gift giving is a firm custom and a manifestation of how Palestinians maintain strong social bonds.

Family Solidarity​

As in most largely rural cultures, the family is the most important unit in Palestinian society. The Palestinian family serves as the primary source of identity and social safety net.

Resistance

The resistance, in all of its varied and creative forms, is deeply rooted in the Palestinian people inside and outside Palestine, a legitimate resistance fighting colonialism, occupation, and settler colonialism: Zionist racism.
