JUST ANOTHER NATION:

The cool new Palestinians: geeks: The West Bank and Gaza Strip is home to hundreds of tech companies, creating everything from websites to smart phone apps. (Jackie Spinner, February 18, 2012, CS Monitor)

Until now, the primary Palestinian contribution to technology has been outsourcing programmers and engineers to firms in the United States and Israel, including Google and Cisco Systems.

Crucially, the community is now beginning to attract investors.
