Palestinians in the U.S. are often in a position where we are asked to stand in solidarity with ourselves. Being in diaspora for more than one generation now also causes some disconnect with historic Palestine, which creates problems with identity. Losing our native tongue and not being allowed back to our homeland poses some major challenges to young Palestinians living in the U.S. How do we address these issues? How can we mitigate such problems? How can we assert our identity and how do we see ourselves in relation to Palestinians around the world and particularly those living under military occupation?
