Sowing steadfastness, harvesting hopeClaire Thomas - Electronic Intifada “When my grandfather bought the land in 1916 he registered it, so we got papers from the Ottomans and we kept re-registering the land with the British, then the Jordanians, and finally the Israelis,” explained Daher’s brother, Daoud...The family has transformed their farm into what they call the Tent of Nations — a center for peace- building and nonviolent resistance. “We wanted to open the farm for people to come and see. This is the best way of education. Come, see, go and tell. We are asking people to go and tell not only what they have heard but what they have seen,” Daoud explained." ca 20/5/2016

Will new agreement lead to increase in Palestinian exports? Ahmad Melhem - Al-Monitor "The Palestinian Ministry of Economy announced May 6 that it reached an agreement with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on the export of Palestinian products to Jordan in small 20-foot containers via the King Hussein (Allenby) Bridge... The agreement, which was sponsored by international parties such as the Quartet, came as part of the implementation of the Palestinian five-year National Export Strategy, developed under the supervision of the International Trade Center (ITC) and funded by the European Union.

The last window closes - Jordan refuses passage to Gazans AP/Times of Israel - With the Rafah Crossing closed for all but a few days in the years, Gazans seeking to travel abroad thought they had found an alternative way of getting to the outside world - travelling to Jordan and taking a plane from Amman. It is far from easy to get an Israeli permit to go from Gaza via Israel to the West Bank and thence to Jordan, but some have managed it. However, in recent months the Jordanian authorities have increasingly denied entry to Gazan Palestinians, thus foiling the last hope of Gazans who hoped to meet loved ones in Europe or attend university abroad. The reasons for the Jordanian changed policy have not been stated officilally. However, on various past occasions Jordan expressed great apprehension at the possibility that Israel would drive great masses of Palestinians into their territory, and such apprehension habitually lead to restrictions on the entry of Palestinians into the Hashemite Kingdom. ak 17/5/2016
