Are Palestinians Inversely Propotional to Distance?

I’d like to apologize for my inactive presence. And seldom do I remember being joyful about it, but, as a full time student as well as counting down graduation, I’m being occupied by my work and plans. Pray for me the best, I have a decent break, I hope I put up thoughts I’ve been carving for this space. This post is biased in Palestinian’s perspective, i.e. not extremely related to politics.

In my studies, while transmitting power wirelessly via antennas, the power dissipates in terms of distance where the further the receiver is, the weaker the power becomes which is logical and scientifically proven. Does this also apply to an individual’s character with respect to identity without taking into account outer effects in which complexity of a behavior increases? Every Palestinian, whether old or young, experiences the consequences of not being in their homeland in a variety of categories such as social standards where some cannot work or may not travel. In a search of freedom, where none can return to his homeland because either he needs a visa or because the middle-eastern part of the world would treat him differently by suspecting him working with Israel or Groups of Palestine or even terrorism. In search for his lost identity, a regular person would search where the sunrise is unquestionable, a stable place for living and quenching the human’s needs. Palestinians immigrate to many parts of the world out of the Middle East in order to survive, however, one may think that a Palestinian soul may be blended and gradually lost within the process of living, just like the case of power and distance…right? In fact, whether they become leaders, rich, famous, not having Arabic reflection or no proof of their Palestinian roots. NONE deny that he is originally Palestinian, but may not be obvious not proud to mention, but some of Palestinians who reside in the middle east tend to fake their identity by painting their lifestyle intentionally by others to lose their identity, those are labeled scum and hypocrite in my hometown. If you have neither respect nor honesty to your homeland, then you don’t respect yourself and if you don’t respect yourself… who will respect you?

Bottom line, the relationship between those Palestinians who are away from hometown and hometown are linearly stable and non linearly increasing, for a person will search for his identity and end up being a moving mirror of his hometown. May God bless us all; wherever we are we are one. I also am proud of this… and I will provide this post some examples I know.
