    Smile Palestine & Palestinians related critical discourse analysis

    Hello everybody! I'm new on this website so I'm not sure if I'm at the right place ... I'm doing critical discourse analysis (CDA) for my graduation project; it is based on political discourse and especially on the situation of Palestine. I'm trying to pick out the Palestinian national and international identity from what Palestine and other officials are saying on their discourses. For that I chose the discourses of 3 important political figures: Ehud Olmert, Mahmoud Abbas and Khaled Meshaal.
    I already have the theory but because I recently started being interested in CDA, I have no idea how to apply it in my discourses and that is why I need practical examples. I'm using the following concepts: discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis, image schema, conceptual metaphors, social actors, social actions, identity construction, argumentative strategies, figures of speech and so forth.

    Now, I need help in finding any related FREE material, analysis of a Palestine related discourse and I would be so pleased if you could help me on this matter. Thank you very much for your patience in reading my huge post.
    Waiting for your reply.


    Thanks,
    Florree
