Al-Zaytouna Centre is pleased to make available now for free download, the full book of the Palestinian Strategic report 2005.     The Palestinian Strategic report is an annual classic publication of the centre, that started in 2006 (i.e. with the 2005 report). Its objective is to assess the development of the Palestinian issue on a regular basis through a rigorous study of its various aspects: internal political affairs, economic development, the educational system, demographic indicators, the Arab-Islamic and international positions and the Israeli attitudes and policies.     It is based on observation, statistics and analysis, with adherence to strict academic measures and standards. Also, it is the result of a team-work, of a selected committee of experts and professionals in the Palestinian issue and the Arab-Israeli conflict.      We hope that this report will, at least somehow, significantly enrich the intellectual and scientific debate on the issues discussed; Moreover, we look forward to the comments of our readers and the critique of the specialists in the field to improve our future publications.
