To move toward a more just position, the PLO and PA should rethink their 
stance of neutrality with regard to the Syrian regime’s mass atrocities 
against its citizens as well as against Palestinians in Syria. 
Palestinian solidarity movements can reject the Syrian regime’s 
appropriation of the Palestinian question and reiterate the commitment 
of solidarity networks to human rights and justice everywhere. They can 
also amplify Palestinian-Syrian voices and defend both their right to 
reparation and justice within Syria, as well as their inalienable right 
to return to their homes in Palestine. Finally, they can reiterate 
dedication to fostering global solidarity in light of the disturbing 
developments in the international political realm, such as the recent 
election of Donald Trump. No matter how dire the outlook may seem, 
through dedicated solidarity and tireless activism there will come a 
time when things will be different. In the meantime, only our moral 
compasses can guide us there.
