Palestine Unbound strives to capture the tenor and content of popular conversations related to the Palestinians and the Arab-Israeli conflict held on dynamic platforms unbound by traditional media. Items selected here are from a variety of sources and have either gone viral or represent a significant cultural moment or trend. This quarter's news includes the rejection of a hasbara junket to Israel by six National Football League players, kicked off by a tweet from Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett; a flurry of satirical Arabic Facebook posts titled “Before and After the PA” that cast a critical eye at the Palestinian Authority; the trending Valentine's Day hashtag, “#WeLoveYouPalestine”; and Palestinian Twitter's response to U.S. president Donald Trump's repetition of an Israeli talking point.
