"A revolutionary without education is nothing"

In contact with Palestinians, it did not take much to realise how much education is worth for them. “Education is the only resource we have”, they say. One of our friends the students of Burin school know well told us, he said to them “Guys, the occupier want you to be uneducated, because it is easier to control you if you don’t understand what is happening around you”; while a former student of the same school, who is now very engaged for the young in the village explained to me “We need to be educated in order to fight the occupation. A revolutionary without education is nothing”.
