EDUCATING FOR
CITIZENSHIP IN THE
NEW PALESTINE
Fouad Moughrabi

I BEGIN MY DISCUSSION of citizenship education by relating an incident from daily life. It is not an ordinary incident, nor is it that extraordinary. It is merely a frame from an ongoing reality. Its importance lies in the fact that it represents a text, a large one that envelops other smaller texts including, among other things, the curriculum. The many signs embedded in this larger text inform the smaller text (s) and surround them with signification and meaning. One cannot understand the smaller text without clearly understanding the larger one.

An altercation occurs at the Kalandia checkpoint at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, January 31, 2002, following a two-car collision involving Hanna Salameh, a 45-year-old butcher who resides in Ramallah, and two brothers who reside in the Kalandia refugee camp, Ibrahim Eid (48 years old) and Jibril Eid (43 years old). According to a press release from the Palestinian Independent Commission for Citizenship Rights (February 3, 2002), it appears that Hanna Salameh hit Ibrahim Eid on the head with a metal pipe, causing “moderate” injuries. When his brother Jibril Eid intervenes, Hanna Salameh stabs him in his stomach with a knife. He dies shortly thereafter on his way to a Ramallah hospital. Meanwhile, Hanna Salameh drives his car to the Governor's Headquarters in Ramallah and turns himself in to Palestinian police.

Following the incident, more than 100 men from the Kalandia refugee camp descend on the city of Ramallah. They proceed to burn down
