Palestinian Surprises is a program that works to dispel stereotypes of Palestinians, clarify myths, and present the Palestinian perspective by providing a place where the world can learn about everything Palestinian.

Palestinian Surprises is the brain child of Sherri Muzher, a journalist, scholar, and activist who has dedicated much of her life and writings to this very mission. Read her full bio at the Palestinian Surprises website.

In May 2012, Muzher partnered with the Know Thy Heritage Program of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF) to create Palestinian Surprises.

Today, Palestinian Surprises is run by a committee comprised of KTH alum who interview, research, and write the articles of Palestinians living in the diaspora featured on the website.
