The new film, Radiance of Resistance tells the story of Janna Ayyad 9 years old, and Ahed Tamimi 14 years old, who live under military occupation in Nabi Saleh, Palestine. Janna Ayyad has been called the youngest journalist in Palestine. Ahed is one of many Palestinian children unjustly incarcerated in an Israeli Prison for opposing colonial occupation on her land. As Bassem Tamimi said, “Ahed is a representation of a new generation of our people, of young freedom fighters.” This film will take an intimate look at their everyday lives and their importance as the new generation of Palestinian non-violent resistance. In 2017, Radiance of Résistance won Best documentary at the Respect for Human Rights Film Festival.

Several people have written to me in the last week about how discouraged they are about recent developments in the Middle East.

"How much more pain and suffering can anyone endure?"
"Will it ever change?"

In fact there is lots of reason to be optimistic if you look at what is happening on the world scene.
