Jerusalem – A year ago, in the midst of the Syrian civil war, I moved to Jerusalem to host my first event.
I hoped to find a venue that would allow me to conduct a conference.
But when I arrived, the place was empty.
The event had been postponed due to a security threat, and I found that I was facing a similar problem with another event in the Old City.
In my view, this was a sign of how dangerous events in the city can be, and the risks they pose to the people and events that will take place there in 2018.
On January 20, I will be hosting my second event.
It will be my first in the country’s capital.
For me, hosting in Jerusalem is not about the event itself, but rather the venue and the way the event will be managed.
The venue will be a new building in a historic Old City neighborhood that has long been home to Palestinian-run businesses and artists.
It is located just east of the old city wall.
The building will be built by the Arab Arts Foundation, an organization that promotes Arab and Arab-Israeli cultural activities.
The organization has been in the forefront of Palestinian-Israeli culture since the mid-1970s, when it was founded by the late Sheikh Said Qaddour.
In recent years, the organization has made significant investments in the Israeli cultural landscape, and in the last decade it has invested more than $200 million in Israel’s national museums.
But for the most part, its projects have focused on Palestinian art and architecture.
As one of the largest and most prestigious museums in the world, the Israeli Museum of Modern Art is a symbol of Israeli culture and the state of Israel.
But in recent years the museum has also become increasingly involved in Israel-Palestinian conflict, in which it has played a role.
In the mid-’90s, a Palestinian-Arab artist, Abdullah Abu al-Khattab, began to use his work in the exhibition “Kharis,” which depicted Palestinian art.
In 1994, the museum issued a press release calling on its members to support a boycott of Israeli products.
In 1995, the Jerusalem-based NGO Center for Palestinian Rights (CPPR) launched a campaign called “The BDS Movement,” which called on international institutions to boycott Israeli goods.CPPR also released a statement saying that the museum had “firmly rejected” the campaign.
The museum was then forced to withdraw its support for the boycott and began working with the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Public Works to implement a policy that it described as “reminiscent of the anti-Israeli campaign launched by the United States in the 1990s and the boycott that was launched in the 1980s by the Soviet Union and other countries.”
After CPPR, a number of Palestinian artists, artists and organizations launched an online campaign called #FreeKhattabi, which sought to pressure the Israeli government to stop “releasing artworks that depict the Palestinian people and Palestinian culture.”
In the months following the CPPR campaign, Israeli officials began to react to the campaign with threats of legal action.
The Israeli High Court rejected the petition and in October 2000, a judge ruled that the CPQS was responsible for the CPPS’ actions.
After that ruling, the Israel government announced that it would begin to impose restrictions on the CPPA and CPPR.
At the time, I was living in Tel Aviv and I could not imagine a situation in which my organization could be targeted by the Israeli Government.
It was at that point that I became convinced that the Israeli regime would react to CPPR’s BDS campaign with a serious effort to punish me for the actions of the organization.
I was not expecting that I would be subject to such a harsh reaction.
As a Palestinian, I am often accused of being a “terrorist,” “terrorist sympathizer,” “radical,” “sympathizer” or even “supporting” Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip.
At times, I have been referred to as “a Palestinian terrorist.”
But as a human being, I don’t have a criminal past or a history of criminal activity.
I am a peace activist, I’m a civil rights activist and I’m proud of my identity as a Palestinian.
I have always held myself to be a progressive, honest person, and at the same time, a defender of Palestinian rights.
For a long time, the only people who had called me a terrorist were those who called me an extremist or who had criticized me as a terrorist.
And now, all of a sudden, they would be calling me a radical, or a terrorist sympathizer.
I didn’t even expect that.
As I was preparing to leave for the United Arab Emirates, I had received a phone call from a friend of mine who had been on a flight to Dubai, the United Kingdom.
The phone call was followed by an email, which read: “You will not be going to the United Nations in 2019, so you better get a passport.”
