Profile: The Citizen

The new generation of dispossessed Palestinians is presented with very limited options that would allow for their awaited return, or even offer a manageable compromise. While this generation of (“active”) Palestinians (age group19-50) is still romanticizing with the fantasies and daydreams of complete liberation and the return to a land they only heard and read about, the Zionists respond with the imposition of concrete facts (literally). Maybe these daydreams were legitimate and reasonable in the previous era of the struggle, but under the current necessity for re-evaluation, the options for realizing the dream needs to be re-examined:

An all out War. An open “army against army” fight for the right of existence: may the real god chosen people win. Under the current situation, the balance of power is definitely not in favor of the Palestinians, and they will not come out victorious under this format, even if they were backed up with 3,000-5,000 angels. This (preferred) solution will have to wait, and maybe the current generation’s duty is to help set the stage for it.

A Guerilla War. An option made popular again after the Hizbollah victory, ignoring the fact that Palestinians were the pioneers of this tactic. Unfortunately, the previous experiences of 1970, 1982, and the Second Intifada have proved that this kind of fighting is usually sabotaged by elements indiscipline and factions rivalries. Also, it proved that even when it is at the peak of its success, it is ineffective in achieving on-the-ground gains or acquiring land. Under the current indifference of the international community, the Zionists will not hesitate in using excessive force that will overpower an unorganized or an under-armed such tactics.

Qualitative Operations. Whether it involves martyr-bombings, planes hijackings, targeted assassinations or any other modern or 70’s-style special operations, the time for such things has expired. What used to be borderline acceptable and was able to generate some attention and sympathy to the cause, is now considered straight out (Terrorism). The main and big-picture objectives of such operations cannot be realized nowadays.

An all out Peace. Whether the majority of Palestinians are with or against such a solution is irrelevant, since the Zionists are not willing to consider it in the first place. The Zionists hold all the cards, all the land and all the power. With the increasing unconcern of the international community and its lack of courage and initiative, the Zionists have no reason to offer any compromises. In addition, under the current power disparity, any solution that will try to be passed as peace will not meet the Palestinians aspirations, and will guarantee that the above subject group will remain in Diaspora.

The Solution: A complete maintenance and reform of the current overall situation that will generate a capable and qualified system, that is ready for war or peace options.


For this generation of Palestinians in Jordan the “Nationalization: التوطين : The integration of them in the Jordanian society beyond any recognition of origin or hopes of return” is not a potential issue or a pending danger, it is a FACT. A whole generation which was born, grew up, got educated, got married, and is working in Jordan, cannot refer to itself but as Jordanians. Would they have preferred a life in, for example, Lebanon that offers “protection” against “Nationalization” by isolating them under inhumane conditions, confining them to worn-out camps that still has OPEN channel sanitary systems, and banning them from work, education and any human-life practices? Absolutely not. Could it be part of the plan all along? Maybe. But this is not the issue of debate here. The problem is that despite the deep, inseparable and practically permanent incorporation, it is still being exploited as a tool to marginalize the whole population. When faced with a national crisis at the highest level, some act with the attitude of: “This not my country anyway, and it is none of my business. Actually I am going home soon.” , and the other half act with the mentality of: “It does not matter, as long as I can get my drivers license without taking the test”.

So let’s say you have a (self-declared) prince who is insignificant in, say area (A). He strikes a deal with country (B) to trade-in his father for his own farm. He hires fighting slaves from (C) to force the unwelcoming residents of the appointed (E) into submission and slavery. He then works with some (Z)’s to split and to expand his farm across (W) and enslave some more people. A very natural and expected scenario, within the lines of the imperialist plots and their need for local agents to manage the colonies at the lowest expenses. The laughable part is the ability of the petty dynasty, over 50 years of exploitation, wealth accumulation and shady regional roles, to rally the slaves (from all roots and origins) against each other, and convince them that the slave master is the only legitimate moderator and protector of their social cohesion! Recycled tired clichés serves a reverse role as a constant reminder that enforces a split in the efforts of the slaves, that will automatically dismantle any call of objection and or an attempt of change.

The true national unity is more obvious through what all Jordanians have in common:

-Living under continuously and rapidly deteriorating situation on every level. Basic living commodities of food and shelter (let alone health and education) are reaching critical scarcity levels for the majority.

-Witnessing the garage sale of the country in bulk and retail, from complete cities to basic assets, everything must go (to secret bank accounts).
(On the bright side the Head of the "Parliament", promised an anti-corruption law, or a sock in the mouth for every citizen, whichever his background deems more important).

-Anticipating and looking forward for a day to leave the plantation permanently, on the first possible chance, while investing in and doing whatever it takes to “achieve” so.

-Dealing with the situation with apathy and complete satisfaction with minimal, instantaneous, and individual gains.

The question remains, When does it become appropriate to ask for a change? What rock bottom needs to be reached before the “status quo” is challenged? When does the time come? And how can it not be missed?

Interesting. My mother and I were discussing the concept of integrating refugees into societies. From her point of view, although she was born and bred outside of Palestine, it is "ibtithal".
It's really a complicated issue..
Great post.

Well articulated Abu-Shreek, but I do have a bone to pick with you on that one despite my agreement on the urgent necessity to re-evaluate our situation, chiefly the issue of the Palestinian identity and its role in the daily lives of the dispersed Palestinians after 60 years or so (excluding Abdoun and Gulfy punters).

While dealing with concrete facts and facing them responsibly and acknowledging the obstacles parting us from our cause, one must not loose sight of what goal is to be achieved, whether "us" are no longer in existent (e.g. disappearing national identity) or whether the challenges only seem to get mad worse before it gets any better… the just cause we're there to achieve shouldn't deviate from our focus.

So it's a classic case of striking a balance and setting up equilibrium between sheer escapism that leads one into numb romanticism (and flawed reasoning and sometimes unjustified explosive behaviour) and between the fatal clinching to the realm of factual realism that chain one's well and dreams down to the 7th earth.

The Palestinian cause no longer belongs to Palestinians (what Palestinians? A good Israeli might ask), but the struggle must go on, without selectively pressurising few (unfortunate refugees) with the burden of being a by-product of a 60 year old defeat while it’s everyone's responsibility and hence everyone's struggle.
