Name: E-mail:. Just imagine how great Israel and Palestine would be if they cooperated and collaborated with each other in mutual respect, understanding, and dare I say it affection. Very inspiring thoughts, Anand. How about we start with one man one vote in the new state of Israel-Palestine, which would, of course, be a state of all its citizens? Run that by MK Lieberman and get back to us with his answer. Maybe, you are new here, but Anand lives in an alternate universe: a truly bizarre world where the relatively impotent and powerless Palestinians can be likened to the Jews.
Trying to reason with him and bringing him to realty, so far, has seemed futile. His assimilation into the globalist, multiracialist, multiculturalist mindset has been quite thorough. There is no bringing him back. There are several historians and writers now in jail for questioning the official history of the Jewish Holocaust. No laws against denying the massacre of the Ukrainians or Russians by the Bolsheviks. Or denying the Armenian massacre. Only one ethnic group has the power to legislate what the official truth will be and punish transgressions against it.
Yes a true disgrace since history is — by definition — an exercise in revisionism. Do you know what the official position of the state of Israel is on the issue of the Armenian genocide? Get this: their official position is that this is an issue which needs to be decided by historians and not politicians! This is a very American perspective, and one that appeals to me. Personally, I wish Israelis and Palestinians would agree to such an arrangement, but that seems unlikely short term. However, within Gaza and the West Bank, maybe the Palestinians can try to create a multiethnic diverse state.
They should encourage large numbers of foreigners including Israeli Jews to move to Palestine, buy property in Palestine, invest in Palestine, conduct business in Palestine, visit Palestine. This would greatly increase property prices in Palestine, tax revenue for the Palestinian authority, as well as improve the Palestinian economy. Over time, more and more Israelis workers, businesses, investors, entrepreneurs, scientists, thought leaders would want to move to Palestine to take advantage of greater opportunities. Palestine could become another Dubai, and its leverage and influence over Israel, America and the whole world would grow exponentially.
This is my hope anyway. The more prosperous and successful Palestine becomes, the more influence it will have and the more leverage they will have in final status negotiations with Israel. The Palestinians in Palestine are capable of succeeding in every way as much as Palestinian Israeli citizens are.
All the powers in the universe reside in all of us. Palestine has a tough road ahead of it. It is very poor. Government spending is several times government taxation. A majority of the operating budget of the Palestinian authority is funded via grants foreign aid from other countries. This forces the PA to be sensitive to the wishes of donor countries. The largest short term priority has to be accelerating economic growth, not negotiating a final settlement with Israel.

Israel is influential, but not nearly as influential as many believe. I know of Anand. Oh well. Spot on. At the start of the Iraq invasion, Europe seemed to be drifting away from the U. In retrospect, that was an illusion. Europe is the prime beneficiary of the empire. America is their bastion against the growing power of Russia, China, India and a number of mid level powers Iran, etc.
So long as the Empire is in total ascendence, Europe has the best of both worlds. But in times such as now, with America floundering in Afghanistan and Iraq, with financial meltdown looming, with Russia growing in wealth and China in power….
Duncan Hunter etc. Name one that is, in the same intensity — anti Israel. Percy from Illinois- gone. Fulbright — gone. Buchanan had to fight for years after his amen corner comment as a mere member of the press, and to this day, has a ceiling on any political ambitions or major media success because of it. Duncan Hunter is actually only a US representative. I mis-spoke but the remarks are true of the house too.
Ask Findley also from Illinois. There have been discussions about the US government selling F22 fighters to several countries. The US government formally supports an independent Palestinian states and publically condemns settlements. This is not the Israeli government position. Much of corporate America and Wall Street is owned by Chinese individuals and firms.
China is in many ways a proxy for global big business and their advocate. Where does China stop and America begin? Personally, I like globalization and China. China has been good for America, and good for the world. If china got into it with Taiwan, the US navy would get involved very soon.
Israel is not offered the latest because they have a habit of selling the technology to China or the best offer like they did with the awacs technology we gave to them a while back. Anti China pundits are everywhere now about the Jobs issue. The last person to really stand up to Israel was Ike in the Suez crisis. Others make noises and then back down. Direct confrontation with China is a top concern at DOD.
Never does anybody every consider using armed might against Israel. They can do anything. Lavon affair etc. They are immune from direct press criticism. Pollard was a bridge to far from them, but he is a hero in Israel and with a lot of American Jews. Nobody in the US knows much about what he did.
Who talks about this on TV news? China has no such power. Lew Dobbs attacks them every night. How can you not see the difference? Mell Gibson has to kneel in supplication and take substance abuse classes so he is not persona non grata in hollywood- no criticism of China could do that to somebody. And Percy and Fulbright- both senators, chairman of the powerful Senate foreign relations committee. What US senators lost their jobs because they refused to do something the China lobby insisted upon? Where is the analogy? Very true corresponds to what I hear , and not just to China.
Bill Clinton backed China on outsourcing. I am very offended by Pollard, as are a lot of other pro-Israeli Americans. Israel was hurt by Pollard. China is criticized in public by some congress people, but gets what it wants more. America has warned Taiwan not to declare independence.

Prior to the 7th century Islamic Conquest and Arabization of the Levant, the primary languages spoken in Palestine, among the predominantly Christian and Jewish communities, were Aramaic , Greek , and Syriac. The Bedouin variety of Palestine spoken mainly in the southern region and along the Jordan valley use a [G] instead of [Q]. Barbara McKean Parmenter has noted that the Arabs of Palestine have been credited with the preservation of the original Semitic place names of many sites mentioned in the Bible, as was documented by the American geographer Edward Robinson in the 19th century.
The literacy rate of Palestine was There is a gender difference in the population aged above 15 with 5. Palestinian intellectuals, among them May Ziade and Khalil Beidas , were an integral part of the Arab intelligentsia. In the s the West Bank had a higher percentage of its adolescent population enrolled in high school education than did Lebanon.
In the 19th and early 20th century, there were some well known Palestinian families, which included the Khalidi family , the al-Husayni clan , the Nashashibi clan , the Tuqan clan , the Nusaybah clan , Qudwa family, Shawish clan , Shurrab family , Al-Zaghab family, Al-Khalil family , Ridwan dynasty , Al-Zeitawi family, Abu Ghosh clan , Barghouti clan , Doghmush clan , Douaihy family, Hilles clan , Jarrar clan , and the Jayyusi clan.
Since various conflicts with Zionists began, some of the communities have subsequently left Palestine. The role of women varies among Palestinians, with both progressive and ultra-conservative opinions existing. Other groups of Palestinians, such as the Negev Bedouins or Druze may no longer self-identify as Palestinian for political reasons. Ali Qleibo, a Palestinian anthropologist , has critiqued Muslim historiography for assigning the beginning of Palestinian cultural identity to the advent of Islam in the 7th century.
In describing the effect of such a historiography, he writes:. Pagan origins are disavowed.

As such the peoples who populated Palestine throughout history have discursively rescinded their own history and religion as they adopted the religion, language, and culture of Islam. That the peasant culture of the large fellahin class showed features of cultures other than Islam was a conclusion arrived at by some Western scholars and explorers who mapped and surveyed Palestine during the latter half of the 19th century,  and these ideas were to influence 20th century debates on Palestinian identity by local and international ethnographers.
The contributions of the 'nativist' ethnographies produced by Tawfiq Canaan and other Palestinian writers and published in The Journal of the Palestine Oriental Society —48 were driven by the concern that the "native culture of Palestine", and in particular peasant society, was being undermined by the forces of modernity.
Implicit in their scholarship and made explicit by Canaan himself was another theme, namely that the peasants of Palestine represent—through their folk norms Palestinian culture is closely related to those of the nearby Levantine countries such as Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, and the Arab World. Cultural contributions to the fields of art , literature , music , costume and cuisine express the characteristics of the Palestinian experience and show signs of common origin despite the geographical separation between the Palestinian territories , Israel and the diaspora.
The opening event was launched in March Palestine's history of rule by many different empires is reflected in Palestinian cuisine, which has benefited from various cultural contributions and exchanges. Generally speaking, modern Syrian-Palestinian dishes have been influenced by the rule of three major Islamic groups: the Arabs, the Persian -influenced Arabs and the Turks.
Baghdad was historically located on Persian soil and henceforth, Persian culture was integrated into Arab culture during the 9th—11th centuries and spread throughout central areas of the empire. There are several foods native to Palestine that are well known in the Arab world, such as, kinafe Nabulsi , Nabulsi cheese cheese of Nablus , Ackawi cheese cheese of Acre and musakhan. Kinafe originated in Nablus, as well as the sweetened Nabulsi cheese used to fill it.
Mezze describes an assortment of dishes laid out on the table for a meal that takes place over several hours, a characteristic common to Mediterranean cultures. Some common mezze dishes are hummus , tabouleh , baba ghanoush , labaneh , and zate 'u zaatar , which is the pita bread dipping of olive oil and ground thyme and sesame seeds. Mahashi is an assortment of stuffed vegetables such as, zucchinis, potatoes, cabbage and in Gaza, chard.

Similar to the structure of Palestinian society, the Palestinian field of arts extends over four main geographic centers: the West Bank and Gaza Strip , Israel , the Palestinian diaspora in the Arab world , and the Palestinian diaspora in Europe , the United States and elsewhere. Palestinian cinematography, relatively young compared to Arab cinema overall, receives much European and Israeli support.

A wide variety of handicrafts, many of which have been produced in the area of Palestine for hundreds of years, continue to be produced today. Palestinian handicrafts include embroidery and weaving, pottery -making, soap -making, glass-making , and olive -wood and Mother of Pearl carvings , among others. Foreign travelers to Palestine in late 19th and early 20th centuries often commented on the rich variety of costumes among the area's inhabitants, and particularly among the fellaheen or village women.
Until the s, a woman's economic status, whether married or single, and the town or area they were from could be deciphered by most Palestinian women by the type of cloth, colors, cut, and embroidery motifs, or lack thereof, used for the robe-like dress or "thoub" in Arabic.
New styles began to appear the s. For example, the "six-branched dress" named after the six wide bands of embroidery running down from the waist. Individual village styles were lost and replaced by an identifiable "Palestinian" style. It was a shorter and narrower fashion, with a western cut. Young woman of Ramallah wearing dowry headdress, c.

Ramallah woman, c. Palestinian literature forms part of the wider genre of Arabic literature. Unlike its Arabic counterparts, Palestinian literature is defined by national affiliation rather than territorially. For example, Egyptian literature is that literature produced in Egypt. This too was the case for Palestinian literature up to the Arab-Israeli war , but following the Palestinian Exodus of it has become "a literature written by Palestinians" regardless of their residential status.
Contemporary Palestinian literature is often characterized by its heightened sense of irony and the exploration of existential themes and issues of identity. Since , most critics have theorized the existence of three "branches" of Palestinian literature, loosely divided by geographic location: 1 from inside Israel, 2 from the occupied territories , 3 from among the Palestinian diaspora throughout the Middle East.
Hannah Amit-Kochavi recognizes only two branches: that written by Palestinians from inside the State of Israel as distinct from that written outside ibid. Poetry, using classical pre-Islamic forms, remains an extremely popular art form, often attracting Palestinian audiences in the thousands. Until 20 years ago, local folk bards reciting traditional verses were a feature of every Palestinian town. The situation changed after Ghassan Kanafani , another Palestinian writer in exile in Lebanon, published an anthology of their work in Palestinian folklore is the body of expressive culture, including tales, music , dance , legends , oral history , proverbs , jokes, popular beliefs, customs , and comprising the traditions including oral traditions of Palestinian culture.
This group attempted to establish pre-Islamic and pre-Hebraic cultural roots for a re-constructed Palestinian national identity. The two putative roots in this patrimony are Canaanite and Jebusite. Traditional storytelling among Palestinians is prefaced with an invitation to the listeners to give blessings to God and the Prophet Mohammed or the Virgin Mary as the case may be, and includes the traditional opening: "There was, or there was not, in the oldness of time There are a cast of supernatural characters: djinns who can cross the Seven Seas in an instant, giants, and ghouls with eyes of ember and teeth of brass.
Stories invariably have a happy ending, and the storyteller will usually finish off with a rhyme like: "The bird has taken flight, God bless you tonight," or "Tutu, tutu, finished is my haduttu story. Palestinian music is well known throughout the Arab world. The distinguishing feature of ataaba is that the first three verses end with the same word meaning three different things, and the fourth verse serves as a conclusion.

It is usually followed by a dalouna. Reem Kelani is one of the foremost researchers and performers in the present day of music with a specifically Palestinian narrative and heritage. Lyrics are often sung in Arabic , Hebrew , English, and sometimes French. Since then, the new Palestinian musical subgenre has grown to include artists in the Palestinian territories, Israel, Great Britain, the United States and Canada. Borrowing from traditional rap music that first emerged in New York in the s, "young Palestinian musicians have tailored the style to express their own grievances with the social and political climate in which they live and work.
Historically, music has served as an integral accompaniment to various social and religious rituals and ceremonies in Palestinian society Al-Taee Much of the Middle-Eastern and Arabic string instruments utilized in classical Palestinian music are sampled over Hip-hop beats in both Israeli and Palestinian hip-hop as part of a joint process of localization. Just as the percussiveness of the Hebrew language is emphasized in Israeli Hip-hop, Palestinian music has always revolved around the rhythmic specificity and smooth melodic tone of Arabic. This hip hop is joining a "longer tradition of revolutionary, underground, Arabic music and political songs that have supported Palestinian Resistance".
The Dabke , a Levantine Arab folk dance style whose local Palestinian versions were appropriated by Palestinian nationalism after , has, according to one scholar, possible roots that may go back to ancient Canaanite fertility rites. One version is performed by men, another by women. Palestinian women dancing traditionally, Bethlehem c. Although sport facilities did exist before the Nakba , many such facilities and institutions were subsequently shut down. Today there remains sport centers such as in Gaza and Ramallah, but the difficulty of mobility and travel restrictions means most Palestinian are not able to compete internationally to their full potential.
However, Palestinian sport authorities have indicated that Palestinians in the diaspora will be eligible to compete for Palestine once the diplomatic and security situation improves.

Palestinians are the descendants of all the indigenous peoples who lived in Palestine over the centuries; since the seventh century, they have been predominantly Muslim in religion and almost completely Arab in language and culture.
Although the Muslims guaranteed security and allowed religious freedom to all inhabitants of the region, the majority converted to Islam and adopted Arab culture. It was one of the mainstays of Umayyad power and was important in their struggle against both Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula Conversions arising from convenience as well as conviction then increased.
These conversions to Islam, together with a steady tribal inflow from the desert, changed the religious character of Palestine's inhabitants. The predominantly Christian population gradually became predominantly Muslim and Arabic-speaking. At the same time, during the early years of Muslim control of the city, a small permanent Jewish population returned to Jerusalem after a year absence. Retrieved 29 August The Arabs of Palestine began widely using the term Palestinian starting in the pre—World War I period to indicate the nationalist concept of a Palestinian people.
But after —and even more so after —for Palestinians themselves the term came to signify not only a place of origin but also, more importantly, a sense of a shared past and future in the form of a Palestinian state. Norton and Company. Moreover, after Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70 the population by and large remained in situ, and did so again after Bar Kochba's revolt in AD When the vast majority of the population became Christian during the Byzantine period, no vast number were driven out, and similarly in the seventh century, when the vast majority became Muslim, few were driven from the land.
Palestine has been multi-cultural and multi ethnic from the beginning, as one can read between the lines even in the biblical narrative. Many Palestinian Jews became Christians, and in turn Muslims. Ironically, many of the forebears of Palestinian Arab refugees may well have been Jewish. It is applicable to the Bedouin and to a section of the urban and effendi classes; it is inappropriate as a description of the rural mass of the population, the fellaheen. The whole population spoke Arabic, usually corrupted by dialects bearing traces of words of other origin, but it was only the Bedouin who habitually thought of themselves as Arabs.
Western travelers from the sixteenth century onwards make the same distinction, and the word 'Arab' almost always refers to them exclusively Gradually it was realized that there remained a substantial stratum of the pre-Israelite peasantry, and that the oldest element among the peasants were not 'Arabs' in the sense of having entered the country with or after the conquerors of the seventh century, had been there already when the Arabs came.

Palestinian nationalism emerged during the interwar period in response to Zionist immigration and settlement.
The fact that Palestinian nationalism developed later than Zionism and indeed in response to it does not in any way diminish the legitimacy of Palestinian nationalism or make it less valid than Zionism. All nationalisms arise in opposition to some "other". Why else would there be the need to specify who you are? As we have seen, Zionism itself arose in reaction to anti-Semitic and exclusionary nationalist movements in Europe. It would be perverse to judge Zionism as somehow less valid than European anti-Semitism or those nationalisms. Furthermore, Zionism itself was also defined by its opposition to the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants of the region.
Both the "conquest of land" and the "conquest of labor" slogans that became central to the dominant strain of Zionism in the Yishuv originated as a result of the Zionist confrontation with the Palestinian "other".
