it is almost 3 years now where I am trying to find a committed group which can create new strategies to enhance our collective leverage as Palestinian. I fail in all meanings and I do not understand why. Because it is very clear how much enhancement potential we have.
I was doing proposals like this http://groups.google.com/group/Global3rdIntifada?hl=en
or the presentation here: http://apps.trocaire.org/justworld/wael/files/24
Why Palestinians around the world are not able to organize themselves?
I guess it is mentality issue than political one. Not to translate self-critic inside own rows and inside one-self into new philosophy.
To create "neutral" unified technical solution for activism no deep political discussions are required for example.
To live aboard help one to change mentality a bit. When I discuss objectively with Germans or American, move forward. I notice Palestinian in the states are much organized than Palestinians some where else. So the mentality is a main issue I think.
But, if we have so many Palestinian with "enhanced" mentality than oriental-emotional classical one, why those at least does not come together and discuss about bigger projects and challenges?
Another philosophical question might be related to the one above I have is:
What does it mean to BE Palestinian?
