It takes a difference to make a difference
We need at least 200 professionals to join the team
If the Palestine Agency/ Palestine Documentation Center is to make a difference and represent the membership in the most competent and professional way.
We need professionals with experience in the following fields among other; lawyers and legal experts in civil and criminal litigation, corporate, finance, property law and real estate, reparations and repatriations and settlements, absentee laws, fraud and embezzlement, international law and international tribunal, international law, mandate and trusteeship laws, military law and military occupation and war crimes, wars and conflicts, terrorism and experts in Ottoman, British Mandate, British, US, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, and Syrian laws We need professionals and experts in economics, statistics, compensation, insurance, trauma experts, refugees, conflict resolutions experts, scientists, water and land use expert, engineers, investigative reporters, civil and criminal investigators, expert court witnesses, transportation, comparative religion. Experts on Israel, on Jewish terrorist organizations, Judaism, Zionism, Jewish and Zionist organizations in Israel and outside of Israel. Experts on Israeli/Jewish Settlements, and Jewish Settlers movements and organizations. Experts and historians on Arab properties in Palestine of 48 and experts on land deeds and property laws of Jordan, the Ottoman Empire, England and Israel. Equally important are social scientists, historians, psychologists, and sociologists and mental health experts. These professionals and experts are asked to join the team and make a difference forming the team of experts. Its own members will manage the Legal and Consulting Firm with open elections for managing directors and executives. The team will investigate, prepare and file civil and criminal actions against former and current Israeli officials, former and current members of the Israeli Defense Forces and Border Guards, against Zionist and Settlers organizations in Israel, in the US and in Europe.
We need to keep in mind that Jewish and Zionist organizations where very successful in tracking and brining to justice war criminals including prison guards, where successful in recovering Jewish properties stolen and confiscated by governments and individuals and were able to recover compensations in the hundreds of $ billions from countries like Germany, Switzerland and many countries in the former Soviet Union. Jewish and Zionist organizations and individuals have formed an organization is Israel that is planning to file civil and criminal law suites against Arab governments and countries seeking hundreds of $ billions in compensation and seeking recovery of all Jewish properties in the Arab world. The danger is that, with the support of the US, and collusions of some Arab countries, there will be a swap and the Palestinian Diaspora will end up losers with rights and claims lost forever.
There is whole lot of work to be done, and it will take lots of smarts, dedications, competence, professionalism and courage to make a difference. Let us for the first time take charge of our own lives and show the world that we can take care of our own.
