ARAB WORLD FEST 2008- Sponsored by


For those of you who do not know about Arab World Fest, I can not say enough about what a wonderful festival it is.  If there is any festival that showcases Arab culture in a professional and organized manner providing 3 days of non-stop activities ranging from non-stop and continuous live entertainment, film festival, marketplace, food vendors, children’s area, cultural area, fireworks, and much more.  I welcome you all and encourage you to visit the festival website at to get a glimpse of what the fest is all about.


In an effort to promote Palestinian artists, will be sponsoring Shadia Mansour at the fest this year.  For those of you who have visited the Art Resistance section of, I am sure you have seen Shadia’s link.  She is a wonderful performer representing Palestinians well not only as an artist, in her work and her lyrics, but as a strong Palestinian woman (is there any other kind!) commanding attention and respect during her performances.


I was introduced to Shadia by Patriarch, another wonderful Palestinian Hip Hop artist out of California who is a crowd favorite at Arab World Fest as he always put on a powerful performace.  Patriarch selfishlessly recommended Shadia last year, showing great character and support by helping to promote a fellow artist.  They put on a show together like no other.  Patriarch will unfortunately be unable to attend the fest this year, but I encourage you all to visit his site and I would like to express my love and respect to him as an artist, a person and a Palestinian brother.

This site was created with a number of purposes in mind. Primary to all is to have it as a resource with the purpose of educating the general public about the conflict in Palestine. It is for all to use, both Palestinians and non-Palestinians alike. There are a vast number of websites which are in place that retain the same mission and many of these sites are referenced by way of links on this site.

It is the intent of this site to also promote dialogue and discussion regarding various topics by way of the blog section. encourages all to participate and share information, opinions, articles, etc. to further this end.

It is the hope of that individuals and groups will utilize this site and actively work towards the goal of educating themselves and their communities with regards to the Palestinian conflict and the atrocities being committed against the Palestinian people by the brutal Zionist occupation.

Finally, in an effort to promote awareness of the Palestine-Israeli conflict, an annual scholarship has been created for students to apply for. Candidates for the scholarship must exhibit an active effort in furthering awareness of the conflict and the victimization of the Palestinian people.

Support to maintain this site and the scholarship fund will come from the sale of merchandise in our store. With a great inventory of products promoting a Free Palestine, please visit our store and share it with your friends and family. Make sure to visit frequently as new items and designs will be added on a regular basis. Donations can also be made whereby you can specify where the money goes (site maintenance, scholarship, events, etc).

The Palestinian conflict is one that is unfortunately under-reported. It is the root problem to major worldly issues, yet it is ignored.

Although many would have you believe the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict is complicated, it truly is a very simple issue of right and wrong. The controversy surrounding the conflict is pure fabrication to divert attention away from the true facts and records. International law should apply to all, without exception. For, until justice is realized, there will be no peace.



What’s so great about this site is that it not only gives you great information, but it’s a great way to also support the Palestinian struggle.  On the front page of the site, it’s all set up for you front and center.  You can check out current articles, look at pictures from the occupation, as well as video clips, you can shop at their amazing store and much more.  After you check out this great site, learn a lot, tell all your friends, and you really get into supporting the Palestinian cause, their willing to reward you!  Applying for the Scholarship is great for the next generation that is entering college and need that financial push on getting there.  So help support the Palestinian cause, the site, and the scholarship program.  Education is key in this world, the next generation is key in this world, and you can help.

So check out
