Abstract

The last decades Palestinians witnessed a failure to reactivate the peace process,  coupled  with the  expansionist policies  of the current Israeli government, the quest of a two-state solution, is fast disappearing. Barriers to development imposed by the continuing occupation and the separation wall. The consequences of the Palestinian condition as a stateless nation, and nonexistence were evidenced in the lack of communication among people, the distance from places of leisure, culture and social disintegration with all the limitations of life that are accompanied with it. The Palestinians had to invent and create an immediate solution to come alive and adapt to the current situation or else run the risk of engendering a well known form of

social pathology.
