Published each issue, this section strives to capture the tenor and content of popular conversations related to the Palestinians and the Arab-Israeli conflict, which are held on dynamic platforms unbound by traditional media. Therefore, items presented in this section are from a variety of sources and have been selected because they either have gone viral or represent a significant cultural moment or trend. A version of Palestine Unbound is also published on Palestine Square (palestinesquare.com), a blog of the Institute for Palestine Studies. Stories from this quarter (16 February–15 May 2019) reveal a variety of resistance efforts, including boycott campaigns against The Whitney Museum of American Art and the online property rental platform Airbnb for their roles in abetting and profiting from Israeli occupation. In another story, an Israeli teenager takes a stand against the IDF; and in yet another, Palestinian rapper Tamer Nafar encourages Palestinian citizens of Israel to vote in 9 April Israeli elections. Trending hashtags this quarter are #DecolonizeThisPlace and #DeactivateAirbnb.
