The question, “Would you expect the US government to ignore daily missiles on Boston?” is familiar to anyone organizing for Palestinian liberation. One response posits Israeli repression as the instigating violence. But another response could be “Well, it depends on who is firing the missiles.” Are the rockets aggression or resistance to aggression? To focus on the rockets and not their reason is to obscure any long-term solution to rocket fire and, more importantly, the injustice that create rocket fire.
Palestinian Member of Knesset (MK) Hana Sweid lifted his voice against the Prawer Plan during a 9 December Knesset Interior Committee meeting. In response to Israel’s planned removal of up to forty-thousand Bedouin from their Naqab lands he protested that, “You want to transfer an entire population.” Likud MK and former IDFA spokesperson Miri Regev responded, “Yes, as the Americans did to the Indians.” The Prawer Plan itself is now defeated though Palestinian removal – here shorthand for the ongoing Nakba – generally continues. Yet Regev’s historical analogy is one of countless examples of Israelis invoking U.S. settler colonialism towards Zionism’s own efforts.
Settler normativity is the discursive normalization of indigenous removal. Settler normativity and are why the San Francisco 49ers are not yet critiqued in the way Washington football team is, why is has taken so long for criticism of Washington’s mascot to consistently break into the mainstream, and why so many will sit down on 28 November for the settler holy day Thanksgiving and enjoy one of the three NFL games with no mind to settler colonialism and genocide.
Noam Chayut’s recently translated memoir, “The Girl Who Stole My Holocaust,” is a rich, compelling read written by a left-wing activist. The book follows his trajectory from patriotic Israeli to activist in the anti-occupation group Shovrim Shtika (Breaking the Silence).
Applying an anti-apartheid framework to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict presents the danger of decentering Palestinian voices from the Palestinian liberation narrative by focusing on the territory of Palestine at the expense of the geography of Palestinians.
The bubbling outrage over the Israeli court ruling that International Solidarity Activist and U.S. citizen Rachel Corrie’s 2003 killing was an accident is understandable and justified. It also points to a problem about which lives we do and do not value.
The Colonial Frontier at Home: Extrajudicial executions, surveillance drones and indefinite military detention
The National Defense Authorization Act and indefinite detention of Americans confirms the on-going domestic surveillance and detention of U.S. citizens.
Both the July 14th Movement and Occupy Wall Street wield tremendous potential. Naomi Klein says that “Occupy Wall Street is the most important thing in the world now.” Immanuel Wallerstein has raved about the “fantastic success of Occupy Wall Street.” The July 14th Movement … Continue reading
It should never be forgotten that while colonization, with its techniques and its political and juridical weapons, obviously transported European models to other continents, it also had a considerable boomerang effect on the mechanisms of power in the West, and … Continue reading
Greece’s decision to block activists from sailing to the Gaza Strip has many causes, but a primary one can be found in the decades long hostility between Greece and Turkey over Cyprus combined with the break in Turkish-Israeli relations and … Continue reading
The Israeli Ministry of Defense is in the process of integrating four “of the anti-missile defense systems developed in the country [plus the US's Patriot system] into a national command and control center for the interception of enemy missiles.” Defense … Continue reading
The thrust of the ‘Clash of Civilizations’ thesis is that in the post-Cold War world there are inherently opposed forces based primarily upon ethnic or religious identity and that future of conflict will be along these lines. In this thesis … Continue reading
