During the most recent crisis in Palestine, the evictions at Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood, Mohammed and Muna El-Kurd were two of the few activists to post daily on social media and keep the world updated. Their message resonated globally and contributed to widespread rallies opposing the relentless continued displacement of the Palestinian people and the Judiasation of Jerusalem. It marked a shift in the media discourse, which managed to connect the current aggression as a continuation of the plight of the Palestinians over the past 70 years. In 2021, Mohammed and Muna El-Kurd were named to Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
