A children's story in English with a brief summary of the history of Palestine and Zionism to help them understand current events. The story ends with a message to encourage the child to stand for what is right - for an inclusive and fair society with peace and equal rights, and Christians, Jews, and Muslims living together in a diverse society as it was before Zionism took root. Excerpt: Zain and Mima were surprised to hear loud voices outside their window. They found a crowd of people chanting «Free Palestine!». «What is Palestine?» they asked. To answer, Mama took them back in time with a story that began many years ago.
