Jump-Start Palestine: A Story of Economic Survival
http://bit.ly/Jump-Start-Palestine

By Sam Bahour and Nisreen Musleh

Not a day goes by without one of us being asked if Palestine really has an economy, given that we have been living for five decades under an increasingly well-entrenched Israeli military occupation. The question usually comes from people passing through on a short visit: some are Palestinians living in the diaspora, others are foreigners who come either singly or in groups; and some visitors arrive, under a variety of auspices, to study our reality. More troubling than to hear this question from outsiders is how often we hear it from our recent graduates. To all, our answer is yes – unequivocally.

[ePalestine] Cleveland Plain Dealer: The sadly misnamed Taylor Force Act is being propelled by unfounded anti-Palestinian propaganda: Sam Bahour (Opinion)

Cleveland Plain Dealer

The sadly misnamed Taylor Force Act is being propelled by unfounded anti-Palestinian propaganda: Sam Bahour (Opinion)

Israeli police officers and Palestinians scuffle during clashes in an east Jerusalem neighborhood in this Sept. 8 file photo after Israeli officials evicted a Palestinian family from their home to make way for Jewish tenants, according to the Associated Press.(Mahmoud Illean, Associated Press)
...

As an American, born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, I wish to ask the Palestinian leadership a simple question. Do you really need the U.S. funds? Of course, having more funds is always desirable, but in this case the funds are so small in the bigger picture, wouldn't it make more sense to kindly ask the U.S. Congress to keep its money, all of it?

[ePalestine] +972 Blog: How Palestinians can reverse Israel’s divide and conquer tactics (By Sam Bahour)

+972 Blog

How Palestinians can reverse Israel's divide and conquer tactics

Oslo allowed Israel to reduce Palestinians to disparate fragments, each with their own challenge to merely survive. It's time to reset that reality and view the Palestinians for what they are — physically fragmented, politically divided, but a whole people.

[ePalestine] NEW DOCUMENTARY: This is Palestine

Dear friends,

A new documentary well worth the watch.

This is Palestine

https://vimeo.com/221868603 (49:42 minutes)


​Nothing new here for anyone aware of ground zero in Palestine or has been awake the past 50 years, but footage of some heart-wrenching scenes reminds us all that there are real people behind the daily headlines and statistics.

To view official Israeli arrogance (a.k.a. hasbara), par excellence, view these two short segments:

12:37 - 13:40
26:45 - 28:05

Losing hope is not an option,
Sam
