Palestine of the Martyrs… and Palestine of the Living



Translated from Arabic by Batoul Faour

Few national flags remain revolutionary after the establishment of a state associated with it, and few national flags are eagerly associated with the one of another, relatively distant nation. This is however the case of the Algerian and Palestinian flags, flown together by the Algerian people as if they were inseparable. Salah Badis gives us a historical and present description of this unwavering solidarity.
