Tom Friedman of the NYT tries to obfuscate the origin of the successful BDS movement and the extent of its success and cut it down to acceptable proportions. Not only is BDS never mentioned by name but also it is pared down to one negotiable issue: the West Bank occupation and the fate of the settlements there.
My American wife and I resolved to leave Israel if Sharon ever became prime minister. Then he did, and we realized: The sweetest recurrent dream of Zionism had always been to dislodge me off of my native land. And here I was putting the decision on my sacred right to live on my land in the hands of Sharon and his fascist fans. What an illogical decision had my wife and I made! We set ourselves a more challenging goal: to help expose the falsity of Israeli democracy to the world and challenge the world to meet its moral responsibility vis-à-vis the lie.
A spirited debate has followed Susan Abulhawa’s critical review of Michelle Corasanti’s book, The Almond Tree, originally posted on Aljazeera and reposted on Mondoweiss together with the author’s rebuttal. Hatim Kanaaneh tries to bring the discussion to some kind of amicable end:
Hatim Kanaaneh comments on Shimon Gapso and a recent Haaretz poll which found no Arabs or Palestinians are influential over Israeli culture.
Two Palestinian women are charged with entering a closed military zone in Nabi Saleh during a protest. And Hatim Kanaaneh imagines his own interrogation
Izzeldin Abuelaish is a real Gazan, Gaza being a veritable mark of distinction among Palestinians that implies willpower, rock-solid obstinacy, persistence against all odds, tolerance of punishing life conditions and readiness to wrestle with giants.
A review by Hatim Kanaaneh of The Almond Tree, by Michelle Cohen Corasanti,
Roots of Resistance: From the Galilee to Gaza – Supporting the first Intifada from inside the Green Line
Hatim Kanaaneh recounts his time supporting the first intifada with the The Galilee Society for Health Research and Services. This post is part of the series “Roots of Resistance: 25 year retrospective on the first intifada.”
I am struck dumb by the precision and astuteness of Mitt Romney’s observation about the regressive nature of Palestinian culture. Of course, he addressed the subject only tangentially in explaining the obvious: that the difference between the Israeli and Palestinian economies is the result of cultural differences. His formula applies to a wider range of phenomena.
Hatim Kanaaneh has a disturbing realization about Khader Adnan and Theodore Herzl.
Right after glancing at the first page, I knew I fancied Fast Times in Palestine and envied its author. For a few years now I have been struggling with the urge to write an account of life in my community … Continue reading
The last session of the Rachel Corrie court case in Haifa had been repeatedly postponed on account of the weightiness of the witness. Colonel Pinhas Zuaretz, better known by his nickname, Pinky, was the commanding officer of the Gaza Division’s … Continue reading
The stage was set for the strangest of dreams but my dreams revolved around what was actually happening: I had arrived back on a night flight from a two-week pleasure tour of Andalucía and taken the train to arrive in … Continue reading
“April is the cruelest month.” T. S. Eliot. In rural Palestine we belittle men who cry. Only women let their tears flow freely. It is considered less than manly. Real men are stoic and conceal their pain, physical as well … Continue reading
April 03, 2011: A Bedouin Goldstone Moment I arrived an hour late to court this morning; in my hurry to make it on time I was picked up by the traffic police for speeding. “Winds blow contrary to the whims … Continue reading
The call issued by angry human rights diehards, incensed by judge Richard Goldstone’s rebuttal of his own former ruling, solidified in its original undiluted form by his well-paid UN position, confirming Israel’s criminality in its attack on Gaza civilians, to … Continue reading
Yesterday we posted a Land Day reflection from Dr. Hatim Kanaaneh, and Max Blumenthal referenced his book A Doctor in Galilee: The Life and Struggle of a Palestinian in Israel in his Land Day post as well. Dr. Kanaaneh has … Continue reading
The headline in Haaretz announced: “Police gearing up for possible Land Day trouble.” I called my village body and asked him what to make of that. Toufiq agreed that it foreboded ill. Thirty-five years have taught us all how to … Continue reading
Mjaddarah is a traditional vegetarian dish that once was the default daily mainstay in rural Palestine. Few among the younger generation desire it or know how to prepare it nowadays. In a sort of nostalgic throwback to the good old … Continue reading
It is olive gathering season and people in Arrabeh are at it again. This year the crop is good. A friend from Jerusalem had asked us for two jerry cans of fresh olive oil direct from the press. Raja Shehadeh … Continue reading

The campaign to free Ameer Makhoul, a Palestinian citizen of Israel and political and human rights activist falsely accused of espionage, has achieved significant advances.

I arrived at the Haifa District Court with a deep sense of foreboding. On my way there, as I drove through Arrabeh’s sleepy streets (It is Ramadan and most fellow Moslem villagers go back to sleep after their dawn meal … Continue reading
