News out of Israel doesn’t match the truth of Palestine. Palestine and Israel: lands of beauty, power, and history. Palestinians: people displaced and terrorized who seek survival and a home in their ancestral country. In 2017 I visited Israel and Palestine for 10 days. It wasn’t until the end of the trip that I started asking about the realities for Palestinians. Pursuing Palestine by Noelle Rasmussen is showing in Hickory, NC at the United Arts Council of Catawba County starting October 24, 2019.
