The Youth’s Social and Economic Condition and the Revolutions

Why the Intifada Is Inevitable?

The continuous failures of the leadership of Fatah and Hamas to reach a genuine political rapprochement; The acts of corruption and lack of legitimacy of the governments and authorities in both West Bank and Gaza; The policies, particularly in the economy and security spheres, adopted by the Palestinian Authority since 2007; The unjustifiable increase in the cost of living in the West Bank; The settlers’ harassment and the new crimes committed by Israeli military forces in killing innocent peaceful protestors; The gloomy socio-economic and development indicators; Youth activism on the ground is still fragmented, but eventually it will unite.

Paper presented at the World Social Forum, Tunis, March 2013.
