For a left committed to fighting against colonisation, imperialism and oppression, the Palestinian struggle for liberation has been an inspiration. Yet the so-called ‘conflict’ between Israel and Palestine is often portrayed as impossibly complex. That argument, and the confusion it creates, reinforces the unjust status quo by paralysing opponents of Israel’s crimes. The Story of Palestine provides a much needed introduction to the history of Palestinian oppression and resistance. It cuts through the lies told by politicians and media outlets, and stands uncompromisingly on the side of the Palestinian people. It also presents a uniquely socialist strategy for liberation, based on a mass revolutionary movement of workers and the poor across the region.
