During a meeting yesterday in the Ministry building in Ramallah with a delegation from the Palestinian Writers’ Union in Haifa, in the ’48 territories, Barghouti noted that maintaining cultural identity requires working with all parts of the homeland, and not submitting to the divisions enforced by the Israeli occupation through isolation of the Palestinians and erecting intellectual and ideological barriers between them.”
