Perseverance and stamina for this ongoing protest has become embedded in the Palestinian DNA, and is inherited generation after generation.The Palestinians have never forgotten and never forgiven.Over the years, complacency within the Palestinian leadership has been met by the population's renewed resolve to ensure the flame of their cause not only burns but does so brightly and in the eyes of the world. A glaring example is Leila Khaled's hijacking of passenger jets in the 1960s to remind the world of her people's cause.Nearly 50 years since then, an Israeli military court is meeting to try 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi for slapping and punching two Israeli soldiers, an act Palestinians say embodies their David vs. Goliath struggle against a brutal occupation. As usual, the Arab world has been discussing the case over a nice water pipe (nargileh), as if Ahed's story is fictional.
A country in jeopardy
