The article describes the Palestinian revolution which took place in 1987 and its similarities with the demonstrations in the Arab countries in 2011. Some of the demands of the Palestinians in this uprising include the start of negotiations, the recognition of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), and the recognition of East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian within the 1967 borders. The people's desire for democracy was brought to the streets during the first Intifada where flyers were distributed on refugee camps and towns.
