Lesson from Samer Issawi – The collective fight against oppression is really about the essential, personal fight for human dignity
The Ma’an News story about Samer Issawi ending his hunger strike carried a striking photograph; I was moved by its potency. In it, the emaciated and wheelchair-bound prisoner is guarded by a thick, forbidding prison guard.
Why are liberal Zionists palpitating over twitter over the Obama visit to Israel? He gave them a little glamour
Roger Cohen in the New York Times wants Palestinians to give up the right of return. But no call on Jews to do the same
Ahmed Moor shares memories of growing up in Gaza during the first intifada and what that struggle means for the Palestinians today. This post is part of the series “Roots of Resistance: 25 year retrospective on the first intifada.”
There’s an exceptionally good story about Gaza published in December’s National Geographic. The writer, James Verini, captures the reality of the Strip in somber colors. He also humanizes the Palestinians in ways few other mainstream publications have managed to do: … Continue reading
I don’t get the sense that Rudoren is malicious or particularly tendentious. Instead, she seems like someone who’s emerged from a milieu where Palestinians are characteristically simple, barbaric, aloof, stoical, etc… (in other words, a Zionist upbringing). Her direct exposure to actual Palestinians – yes, real people – is causing her to reevaluate some of those latent biases.
For years now, ‘death in Gaza’ has been an Israeli electoral strategy.
A video of Ahmed Moor, Antony Loewenstein, Ghada Karmi and Dimi Reider discussing the book “After Zionism” at the Frontline Club in London.
On Sunday, Ahmed Moor was in a jubilant Tahrir Square as Mohammed Morsi was named Egypt’s first democratically elected president. What comes next is anyone’s guess as Morsi positions himself for a confrontation with the military.
There’s a galling story up on the Ha’aretz website. It’s about how an Israeli Knesset member seeded anti-Palestinian legislation in Congress. If true, the revelation raises serious – uncomfortable – questions about Congressional independence and allegiance to a foreign state.
Ahmed Moor reports from Cairo on reactions to Hosni Mubarak’s sentence of life in prison.
Ambassador Michael Oren’s recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal is timely – and appropriate. Israel is less popular among young Americans than ever before. And it will only grow more unpopular as more facts about the occupation make their way into the American mainstream.
Students from US and European universities issue a call for a day of solidarity Thursday to publicize the hunger strike of Hana Shalabi, who is in administrative detention in Israel. Many students will go on a 24-hour hunger strike in solidarity
Students at Harvard University have organized a conference on the meaning of the one state solution that will be held March 3 and 4, 2012.
The past few years have seen the BDS movement electrify campus activism – a bright spot on the landscape of Palestine advocacy. The movement has enabled students around the country to engage constructively with the big moral question of our … Continue reading
My hope is that the organizers will succeed in registering the bulk of refugees and other Palestinians in the diaspora
I spent my day in downtown Boston in and around the Occupy Boston encampment. Appropriately, the protesters bivouacked across the street from The Federal Reserve Bank here; the image they’ve conjured is a symbolically potent one. My main task for … Continue reading
I had the privilege of attending a discussion entitled “Inside the Arab Awakening” on Sept. 19. The panel was organized by the Middle East Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School and was moderated by Ambassador Nicholas Burns. The panelists – … Continue reading
Lately, some of my friends have been posting triumphant messages across social media. The focus of their attentions is the ongoing global financial collapse – and their messages are steeped in a misguided Schadenfreude. You can celebrate America’s credit-rating downgrade … Continue reading
Boycott debate– in which a young, cosmopolitan, liberal-leaning Jewish man twists and writhes under the weight of half-truths and wispy contradictions
I had the privilege of attending the boycott debate in London with Eleanor Kilroy, which she wrote about here. I only wanted to add a few more points: For those of you who haven’t seen Omar Barghouti debate or speak, … Continue reading
Evidently, the Israelis and Americans (and the French and Germans?) have succeeded in pressuring the failing Greek government into preventing the flotilla from sailing. As Medea Benjamin pointed out earlier, this likely has a lot to do with Greece’s sovereign … Continue reading
Most of the time when Zionists discuss democracy, it’s from under a dark cloud’s pall. The words they issue are strained and a compressed desperation suffuses their arguments. Invariably, they become aggressive. Masada is rebuilt in their own heads and … Continue reading
A dedicated group of activists and teachers have launched a program called “Go Palestine!” Its purpose is to provide a summer experience for Palestinian Diaspora youths (ages 14 to 17) by pairing them with a Palestinian host family for the … Continue reading
Judge Richard Goldstone made a mistake. An ardent Zionist, he believed that he could alter the course of the Jewish state’s trajectory. Undoubtedly pained by the actions of his Zionist fellows – and earnestly knowing that it doesn’t have to … Continue reading
Yossi Gurvitz issued a decent rebuttal to Dimi Reider’s call to self-immolation over at 972mag. It’s worth reading the argument in its entirety, and its strengths are self-evident. There is one significant note worth harping on: Gurvitz’s casual racism when … Continue reading
