Palestinian Energy and Creativity from the peope to the people

Notes on current Trend:

Over the last years I have noticed how much Palestinians are putting most of their energy and creative abilities on internal conflicts deals with collective national objectives or on Israeli conflict, so that the civil society and Palestinian nation every where is losing and becoming incapable to construct any leverage for change.

Building the Palestinian Nation, Building Palestine:

Because we never have a real chance to rule ourselves and to build our nation aside our displacement 61 years ago, we have a unique social construction in human history, at the same time without a proper collective democratic system fit our “glocal” geographical distribution and nature of contribution and participation:
There is tremendous amount of self-responsibility and self-organizing talent.
There is expressive internal capacity for self-determination in each Palestinian.
There is huge invisible power, which is fragmented and plagued by pseudo-representation of formal leadership/world.

My massage will be, Building a state without building the society every where and every time is a mere post-colonial act, where a minority is trying to rule and control a majority.
Palestinians every where have enormous virtual collective intelligence lack to proper tool to manage it in order to start a nation building process all Palestinian can contribute to in the era of open world and emerging perception for a nation was never able to build it self.

Return to build Palestine

I am currently making plans to return to my Palestinian homeland after 17 years of living, studying and working in Germany. Meanwhile, I have become a citizen of Germany, so I will be returning to Palestine as a dual national aside my global openness.
I look forward to helping build my native land, and hope to contribute to the development of Palestinian society using the knowledge and international experience I gained during my years of living in Germany.
As it is not an easy mission for those has been aboard for long time to shift their centre of living together with their families I have been thinking about how to encourage networking among those Palestinians who are professionals, with the goal of helping them and supporting each-other to return to Palestine or at least to support their fellow professionals in an effort to help develop the Palestinian homelands.

In this group I would like to share discussing and ideas about how we establish a campaign to support such an approach and explore the question which Palestinian society we are looking forward to build.

I have been very much involved with the concept of Israeli-Palestinian economic interaction, in fact I wrote my masters thesis on it.  But you nailed it right on the top of the head with "global eyes."  Global eyes are needed for an independent Palestine to live next to an independent Israel.  For an independent Palestine to have a Jewish minority, just like an independent Israel having an Arab minority.  To further the concept of economic interaction, for the catalyst has already been laid.  The Palestinians do U.S. $3 billion dollars worth of business with Israel.  Israel is the Palestinians largest trading partner.  The Palestinian economy is on the verge of collapse, and if it was a nation-state it would qualify for assistance from the World Bank.  If the Palestinian economy does collapse it will just pull down Israel along with it.  Global eyes are desperately needed.  So swallow that nationalistic pride, because it is just keep those eyes shut.

thanks Basil for opening new space for interaction with others.
Please wash out, that strategically I see the Palestinian Brain Application now within the core of community-production-network as part of social-economic-green-environment. This way I try to define practical approach to design new technological boundaries, which will facilitate building of the Palestinian nation ..
Comment by Wael_ on July 2, 2009 at 6:00pm
sorry to confuse you Basil with my stuff. I will try to answer any question you drop in both english or arabic.

I am looking forward to know your proposal for how we can put down the mission/vision statement.. my SKYPE account is open for any one.
Comment by Jay Hamburger on July 2, 2009 at 5:50pm
I agree with the simplicity approach......but I do have another question: Since English is not your mother tongue, Wael.....considering how well you use my language....just how wonderfully erudite and eloquent you must be in Arabic! I wish that I could communicate so well in your language!
