Be Palestinian or not to be this is not the Question
We aren’t Beggars!
(We will make the state without begging and without debate)

Being in an occupied country doesn’t mean that you don’t have a sense of belonging. The belonging increased by being in an occupation situation.
“I am Palestinian”. That’s what every Palestinian would answer if someone asked them about their own nationality and be sure about it, which means Palestinians know that Palestine is their country, therefore we don’t need recognition to know that Palestine is our land. They know to which country they belong, even if they live in New York, Iraq, Lebanon, India, Brazil or Tokyo they announced to the whole world that they are Palestinian.
Beyond what happen in united nation, as a Palestinian we don’t want America and Israel and some countries to recognize with ‘the state’, we don’t want to kiss their legs and kneel to them. We felt bored about negotiations it is an old suit, thus we don’t want these negotiations anymore. What we need actually is a spirit of enthusiasm which passes through our hearts and melts in us.
The world changed. Before the Arab spring we were hopeless we were afraid of occupation to stay hundreds of obnoxious years, but after revolutions in Arab world we believe more than anytime that the victory is so near and the fear disappear, we have a will to free our homeland by our hands, we don’t beg for “the state”, we will make the state without begging and without debate. In these days, we confirm that negotiation is useless way. At that time the whole world would, despite their reaction about Palestinian case, recognize by whole Palestine not just a tiny quarter.
