However, what astonishes me is that, although he tells his friends I am his "wife" and takes me everywhere and shows me affection in public etc, but when it comes to his family knowing about me, he's abit nervous. He told me his family is very open minded, and his older brother married a German lady and his parents would have no problem accepting me. He told me that in Jordan, especially when he's Palestinian, when you bring a girl home, it means you're taking her home for approval from parents? He also thinks of relationships as open, at least from his side. Dating a man you’ll never see because his utmost loyalty is to his cards mates.Unless he’s studying medicine, getting another degree, or doing grad school, he really has no excuse to still be driving to his university’s campus if he is over 25. By this time, he is friends with everyone, from the guards at the gates to the coffee-boy in the Deanship of Student Affairs.
What he’s usually wearing: jeans and a button-up shirt. Never, and I mean, never will he let them down when they need the 4th player to complete the circle. Plus, he is a hard-core nicotine addict as all his games are spent smoking the argeeleh. What he’s usually wearing: pointy shoes, a lot of gel on his hair, and a Honda Civic.I have never witnessed a Palestinian marry a white American only to start suddenly saying “dude,” liking Sarah Palin, and over-indulging in mayonnaise. I’ve had a few white girlfriends, and if they didn’t know about Palestine before, they sure did soon after. I remember that one time when Britney and Ashley both showed up to that anti-Israeli demonstration a few years ago… No Palestinian can claim to be independent of our history. To live a life divorced from political reality is an impossibility for any Palestinian. Our greatest achievement is our undying unwillingness to become casualties. You will redefine the word “cousin.” For us, it can mean a third cousin five times removed. You will find that you start dancing in circular line formations at weddings and celebrations. Cousins that you didn’t know you had will grab your hand and lead you in the right direction.When non-Palestinians join the club, they quickly realize that membership is not just a matter of eating too much garlic. You will gain a whole new relationship with the Jewish people. Bdend-1g /* Trending Now */ /* Center Rail */ #ya-center-rail .profile-banner-default .ya-ba-title #Stencil .

I performed in three comedy shows, and I can tell you this: Palestinians know how to laugh, especially at themselves.
