The Center for Arab Unity Studies released the book In the Sense of Place: A Revelation from the Lessons of Jerusalemite Resistance by Bilal Awad Salameh.
This book deals with Zionist colonialism as a subjugating colonialism that aims to gain more control over the Palestinian places wherever possible, especially its subjugation policies in the colonized Jerusalem, which are concentrated in three places: The Gate of the Column (Bab Al Aamod), by colonizing the sensory and mental perception of the visual scene of the Palestinian in order to Judaize and “Israelize” it; and The neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, by uprooting its inhabitants, making the “home” in it an insecure environment, and competing with the Palestinians to take possession over houses by excessive force; and the surroundings of Al-Aqsa Mosque, its courtyards, and the attempts to replace the Jewish sacred in the place of the Islamic and Arab sacred. In its ethnographic and sociological notes, the book monitors how the Palestinian realizes the meaning and importance of the three places, by honing his individual and collective memory, his action and his national resistance in terms of presence, protest, and influx in the streets in various forms, and by all available means to restore places or what the book calls “the war of places,” and the way of Forming and molding the Palestinian place as a political space to develop and sharpen its awareness and national identity through its daily presence as resistance, in order to recover the place symbolically and materially.
