Hi Everybody,

It feels good to be here, and after watching this site for a while I decided to go on board. I hails from New York State, but currently reside in Jerusalem, Israel. I work in venture capital and communication. I am here mostly to hear and be exposed to new ideas. I am not a zealot of any kind.

I haven't been hanging out much lately, too much work for me around the Holidaze....I do keep a window open on the New Topics Real-Time Headlines page...this link.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

That way I can sometimes catch a new story that I want to follow. Also set up your *My ATS* page to follow threads you subscribe to, and post in. It helps a lot in such a vast site as ATS. I follow a LOT of threads I don't post in....just about every subject here.

Glad you decided to join...

Hello JohnWoodland,

Welcome to ATS, I saw your post on the 'Phony Narrative' thread...




The Difference of Qaumia and Watania are important to understand. Though Qaumia, the sense of Arab unity is wide spreas, it coexists with Watania, the local, nation-stat patriotism.


I suspected that there must be a way to explain to folks that Arab unity seems to exist 'metaphysically' instead of 'geo-spatially', in the sense of boarders and territories delineated by a map. I presently do not have the chops to explain this and i suspect it would require that I brush up on, what I guess would be, Arab family systems and society.

They function essentially like patriarchal Phratries don't they?

I was wondering if you could lay down a 'short course' of sorts, to help tidy up my own direction for research?

Thanks for being here, I know that you are going to bring some interesting insight to the boards.
