Professor Qumsiyeh argues that diversity is strength both in human societies and in nature (biodiversity). Palestine (western part of the Fertile Crescent) was and always will be a diverse society even if occasionally there are unsuccessful efforts to make it uniform (e.g. Crusaders, Zionism). He explains why he is very hopeful for the future and what activists are doing on the ground to achieve sustainable human and natural communities even in very difficult circumstances.
