Palestine Supplement

As-Safir's newspaper has an excellent record on service to the Palestine question.  It has been publishing a weekly supplement on Palestine.  They now have been collected in a large volume (and sister Mirvat sent me a copy).  They are edited by Palestinian journalist/historian, Saqr Abu Fakhr.  They are an excellent record on Palestine history and politics.  Ghassan Kanafani had published a Palestine supplement for the Al-Muharrir newspaper back in the 1960s (Al-Muharrir stopped publication after armed thugs of Syrian regime bombed its offices).  There are things I disagree with in the supplement (like the inclusion of certain writers here adn there) but this is a rich resource that I recommend to all.
