Palestine, nestled between Pakistan, PanamaAs I travel the world and witness the global quest for Palestinian national rights and a normal life, I become increasingly confident of our eventual success. Because everywhere I encounter the tenacity and depth of Palestinians' individual and collective identity, the essential foundation of statehood and nationhood. Jews know this better than anyone else in the world, as do Armenians who achieved their state, and Kurds who are on their way there. Palestinians have been denied their state since the creation of Israel in 1948 took over 78 percent of historical Palestine. When he first registered for the preliminary races that runners must complete to qualify for the marathon, Maher did not find "Palestine" in the website's pull-down menu of countries. He only has a Palestinian passport, so could not register under another nationality.On the marathon website, Palestine (PAL) now nestles between Pakistan and Panama, just hanging around matter-of-factly with all those other established countries, waiting only for recognized borders and stuff like that.Many more people around the world today know about Palestine and its flag, and most importantly, its determined and devoted citizens.
