Qassem was a Palestinian writer, thinker, political analyst, and academic. He was a professor of political science and Palestinian studies at An-Najah National University in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

He has been known for his political and national stance against the Israeli occupation, as he criticised the status quo, rejected the Oslo Accords and the settlement approach.

Palestinian Authority security forces arrested him on numerous occasions as a result of his exposure to corruption in government.

OPINION: Saeb Erekat’s death is a loss to the Palestinian people
