The West has always had a negative discourse over the East due to the power relationships between the developed countries and others that are exploited by them. Although Khirbet Khizeh is clearly seen as a story of confession of a Western agent who commits war crimes, it is indeed a portrait of how Palestinians are depicted in an oriental way and how the confessor serves the never-ending biased discourse about the East. Along with the historical background of the Exile and the abuse of power that Israel uses against Palestine, how Palestinians are victimized via systematic displacement will be brought to light. A comprehensive analysis of Khirbet Khizeh by S. Yizhar, Journal of an Ordinary Grief by Mahmoud Darwish, and I Saw Ramallah by Murid Barghouti will be conducted to display different perspectives on the exile and therefore on the Palestinian matter.
