Activist Bill Fletcher, Jr., says “It’s easy to assume that someone else is giving the funds needed for organizations like Mondoweiss to survive, and to assume that survival is enough. But if we want to expand their influence for real change, it will take resources. Our opponents understand this, and they understand it very well. Knowing the pathbreaking, exceptional work of Mondoweiss, I cannot imagine letting it get to the precipice before contributing—and so I give regularly.”
In December 2014 Mondoweiss ran a fundraising campaign “What Mondoweiss Means To Me” which highlighted statements from leaders in Palestine solidarity movement and everyday readers of the website about what it means to them. Here is a collection of the statements that we published.

As you probably know by now, our book The Goldstone Report: The Legacy of the Landmark Investigation of the Gaza Conflict has hit stores. Media attention has started to pick up, so even if you can’t make it to Busboys & Poets in DC this weekend to see Phil, Laila El-Haddad and Phyllis Bennis, there […]
A friend has reminded me of why I believe in the Israel lobby. If per Chomsky and the materialists, it’s corporations that drive policy, then how come several big American corporations bitch about the Gaza blockade and nothing happens. What about this 2006 leaked State Department cable on all the corporations that were upset with […]
My post yesterday on Firedoglake suppressing criticism of Israel has hit a nerve; even neocon Eli Lake has commented on it. I’m going to respond later but in the meantime, I wanted to post two sharply-critical comments that we’ve received from two longtime contributors to FDL, the blogger Siun and the composer Philip Munger. Their […]
A couple thoughts on today’s news, the Justice Department’s move to drop its case against two former Israel lobbyists on espionage-related charges. –It’s common in the press to argue that the indicted lobbyists Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, then of…
Trump has named son-in-law Jared Kushner a senior adviser on Middle East issues. I doubt Kushner, who comes from a Zionist family, has the worldliness necessary to achieving anything in that area. Kushner fired me ten years ago after I started reporting on the Israeli occupation.
Mondoweiss co-editors Adam Horowitz and Philip Weiss talk with Palestinian human rights activist and co-founder of the BDS movement Omar Barghouti on the tenth anniversary of the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions again Israel.
In an attempt to salvage liberal Democrats view of Israel AIPAC made a point to reach out to progressives. As part of this effort during the lobby group’s annual conference, former Democratic Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm made the case that Israel is a “progressive paradise.” Hamzah Raza writes that Granhold’s Israel fable is contrary to realities on the ground, and in response offers a list of nine reasons why Israel is actually just the opposite of what Granhold claims.
Ron Brummer from Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Hasbara, recently confirmed that there is no separate economic system for Israel inside the occupation and outside it. “If you want to divest from the West Bank… you have to divest from Israel.” This is clarifying. Liberal Zionists who have supported settlement boycotts only need to choose sides. Are they for freedom or apartheid?
Gideon Levy has described Zionism as “Israel’s fundamentalist religion.” But what happens to those Israelis who reject it? Jonathan Ofir describes his journey away from Zionism, and the societal exclusion that befalls those who drift away from the ethos.
Miko Peled’s suggestion at a British Labour conference that “Holocaust: yes or no” should be open to debate, has thrown raw meat to Holocaust deniers as well as Israel apologists. Even as he says that Zionism should not be debated.
Yossi Gurvitz wrote that when American Jews seek to influence Israel as Jews they are reinforcing the illiberal ethnocratic nature of the state. Jonathan Ofir disagrees and says it is possible to engage with Israel as both Jewish and a liberal.
Palestinian political leadership has reacted with outrage over the detention of feminist, human rights activist, and Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member Khalida Jarrar, detained by Israeli forces from her home in Ramallah during a predawn military raid on Sunday.
Bullying, prison, violence, exile. As Omar Barghouti wrote in Mondoweiss in April, “The latest savage, even irrational, attacks on our movement indicate, more than anything else, that we are indeed prevailing.” Starting in June 2017, in the series “They fear the truth–we report it,” Mondoweiss is sharing the experiences of journalists and activists working in Palestine […]
