Excerpts from a meticulously researched Mondoweiss online article by Zaref Ali and Amal Zayed entitled The Arab Spring and reviving hope of Return; then our host's exclusive interview with Abdulfattah Abusrour (more known as Abed), creator/director of Al Rowwad cultural center in the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem.
The cited article is at mondoweiss.net/2013/08/the-arab-spring-and-reviving-the-hope-of-return.html. Its hypothesis is that "the Arab Spring has revived the hope of return, a hope which has, for the past 65 years, been undermined for various reasons."
