    is in large part self ascribed 5 The tension between equalizing access and rights and maintaining some fundamental differentiation is extremely complex and immanently palpable The political stakes whether real or imagined are high This has in part reinforced an existential culture or paradigm of permanent temporariness what Bauman has called the frozen transience of refugeehood 6 Abu Khalil al Laham a leading community figure involved in Dheisheh s Popular Committee talks of the stifling effects of this kind of mind state Dheisheh he says was A society that resisted change a society stuck in a culture of exile this is not my house is what people would say a society stuck in temporariness but temporariness kills creativity it kills and prevents initiative political and social awareness our general cultural awareness was inhabited by a culture of temporariness that prevented societal development you can not plan tomorrow if you live in a state of transit 7 emphasis ours Herein lies the profoundness and novelty of what Deheishans have been able to do Dheisheh and following its lead other camps in the West Bank has been able to negotiate this impasse contradiction by defining and articulating urban and spatial improvement which has conventionally been viewed as a political trap as a means of strengthening political struggle In effect turning the equation on its head Abu Khalil again We fought the temporary Today we are in the here and now To have presence to have factories to have institutions doesn t negate our role or our rights as stipulated by international legitimacy On the contrary 8 Deheishans have done this by explicitly linking urban improvement to the creation of new political space for agency This marks a serious shift in the way Palestinian refugees interpret and instrumentalize the spaces of their camps There is a conscious effort to distinguish between the political and legal rights of displaced people and their social and environmental living conditions or in other words to insist on a political rather than socio economic definition of refugeehood In this rejection of need as a constitutive principle of rights Dheishens began to negotiate a path in between the strange complicity of those who want to improve the camp as a means of undermining the right of return and those who reject any improvement to reinforce the very same claims to return Improvement in this context becomes a process by which refugees forge the contours or the possibilities of the contours of political space by obviating the exigencies of fragile and precarious material life In her writing on Shu fat Camp just outside Jerusalem sociologist Sylvaine Bulle writes that the domestication of the built environment her term for the humanizing urbanization of the camps while at some level contrasts with the political face of the camps as a place of resistance has consequences in the public domain and sphere 9 These practices transform the universe of enclosure into one of intimacy safety and sometimes into some form of common good

  • Recognising Palestine: Towards Emancipation or Cementing Prosthetic Sovereignty? | arenaofspeculation.org
    ICAHD contends with this view arguing that civil society must seriously engage with the September deadline since it represents a political reality that cannot be ignored September is coming whether we are ready or not Like it or not we are part of a political process together with governments That process moreover has a clear political goal ending the Occupation and achieving a just peace between Israelis Palestinians and their neighbors I would argue with Ali that our ongoing campaigns and actions from BDS lobbying international mobilization and pressing for the implementation of international law through resisting house demolitions and the displacement of Palestinians in Bil in Sheikh Jarrah Silwan and the Jordan Valley are important and must continue But I don t think they alone add up to a political force capable of ending the Occupation or of achieving a one state solution We are in a bad marriage with governments the Palestinian Authority included We the people can only bring the issue so far We are not elected have no defined constituencies do not negotiate and cannot sign treaties or peace agreements We alone cannot resolve the Palestine Israel conflict At some point we must pass the baton to governments 4 Netanyahu Clinton and Abbas at yet another round of negotiations in Sharm el Sheikh 2010 US State Dept Public Domain Issa Khalaf academic and author on Palestinian politics argues that the drive for UN membership need not be incompatible with the ongoing rights focused struggle centred on the BDS movement The question is must Palestinian strategy consist of either a state declaration or a non violent campaign that demands freedom human rights and equality complemented by and contextualized in the boycott divestment and sanctions movement My answer is a contingent no especially now that negotiations are moribund and Abbas Fayyad are not adhering to the US Israeli scheme of coercing the Palestinian people into a settlement of surrender Before explaining let me say this statehood declaration as a goal by itself or embedded in a more inclusive strategic context as I will suggest is dependent on one critical element it is meaningless if not accompanied by de jure UN recognition membership 5 Khalaf goes on to outline how such seemingly disparate strategies might in fact reinforce one another The Palestinians would develop a multifaceted strategy that includes three elements seeking de jure UN membership accepting in principle two states based on international law and UNSC resolutions and struggling for freedom human rights equality in a non violent campaign of resistance to end the occupation and that affirms peace coexistence and life Each strategy will have its own constituent tactical elements one at UN the other peace conference negotiations the third mass organizing Together they have a better chance of ending the occupation than the current state of collaboration with the occupiers in an interminable peace process 5 Those in international law circles have been debating the concept of Palestinian statehood for some time see John Quigley The
