This brief study attempts to give a general overview of the Palestinian issue through a historical narrative that will hoepfully, help the reader to comprehend the overall issue and its interlinked factors. The issue may have conveniently been studied topicall, ()the land, the people, the Zionist project, resistance etc.) but, while generally beneficiary, this approach is problematic in this, and similar, abbreviated studies. It may adequately address each topic, but, by its very nature, cannot interlink them in one sequence.
The study addresses the need of those who look for a bird's-eye-view of the Palestinian issue. Thus, it is more of a compendium or, so to speak, a "pocket book" that caters for the needs of numerous sectors of the Arab-Muslim community who have no time for detailed and specialised studies.
The vision that guides this study is, of course, a rational belief in the eternal Arabian and Islamism of Palestine, and full and undisputed rights of the Palestinians over their motherland. The study is believed to be sufficiently infromative and documents and as far as possible written in simple language and detached manner.
