[ePalestine] PayPal and Palestine (By Sam Bahour)

PayPal and Palestine

By Sam Bahour


​​
As a Palestinian-American management consultant in Ramallah, Palestine, I advise my Palestinian clients living under Israeli military occupation to use world-class software and online services, assuring them that it will help them enter global markets. Some of these clients are not-for-profit outfits, like the Palestinian Circus School and Birzeit University; others are tech start-ups, many of which are funded by U.S. tax dollars via USAID. Time and again, I regretfully must explain to clients that the most popular worldwide online payment system, PayPal, is unavailable to them.

[ePalestine] MEE: US fuelling Israel's civil war (By Sam Bahour)

Wednesday 24 August 2016

Middle East Eye

US fuelling Israel's civil war

By Sam Bahour



Israel is a very special country. Its history is like no other. Maybe that's why its civil war, which is well underway, is almost indistinguishable to the untrained eye from a stable country. Upon closer inspection, Israel is a powder keg already in the process of the most significant societal and political implosion of its history. While a total meltdown is not inevitable, the US continues to provide the fuel for Israel to continue driving drunk on power.
