An important argument has broken out between the Electronic Intifada and The Nation over the issue of the left privileging Jewish voices on the conflict and not being hospitable to Palestinians.
The Art Of (Ineffectual) Diplomacy: Kerry says all Israeli settlements are ‘illegitimate’ but shouldn’t hamper peace process
It’s really something watching Secretary of State John Kerry tie himself in knots condemning Israeli provocations while insisting they mean nothing.
We’ll be doing some routine maintenance on the site over the weekend and there may be sporadic moments when the site is down.
AIPAC is promoting Netanyahu as supportive of the peace process, but the statements of the rest of his government paint a very different picture.
In landmark case on Israel and Jewish identity, British tribunal says anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism
Math lecturer Ronnie Fraser, assisted by Jewish groups, wanted a British court to condemn anti-Israel speech as anti-Semitism because an affinity to Israel was an intrinsic part of his and others’ Jewish identity. The court rejected Fraser’s case saying his pro-Israel advocacy constituted political activism and added “a political activist accepts the risk of being offended or hurt on occasions.”
Day One of Obama in Israel/Palestine — ‘It’s good to be back in the land of Israel,’ Obama says in Hebrew
A live blog of the first day of President Obama’s trip to Israel/Palestine.
Chuck Hagel has finally been confirmed as Secretary of State by a Senate vote of 58-41. Although they were able to prolong the process over the Defense Secretary nomination, today’s vote serves as a stinging defeat to the neocon campaign against Hagel.
The photo of a Palestinian boy in the crosshairs posted on Instagram by an Israeli sniper and discovered by Electronic Intifada has now gone viral. It is the top story on Yahoo news. (The New York Times will surely get around to it soon, don’t hold your breath.) And the optics of Israel are changing internationally. Startup nation is becoming Child-targeting nation.
Chuck Hagel’s nomination for Secretary of Defense has been put on ice for 10 days as Democrats failed to get the 60 votes needed to end a Republican filibuster today. The issue will be on hold while the Senate is on recess next week. Earlier today the New York Times wrote, “Republicans [are] mounting what appears to be the first filibuster in history against a Pentagon secretary.” They were successful, for now.
The exit polls are coming in on today’s Israeli elections and early results show a severely diminished Likud/Yisrael Beiteinu party. The big winner today appears to be ex-news anchor Yair Lapid, but regardless of today’s outcome there will not be a meaningful change in Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians. Above, Lapid attacks Netanyahu using a parody of the bomb chart Netanyahu presented at the U.N.

On the 65th anniversary of the UN’s partition resolution calling for two states in Palestine, the Palestine mission is pressing to gain non-member voting status from the UN General Assembly.

Exciting news, Mondoweiss staff reporter extraordinaire Alex Kane will now be working on the site as an Assistant Editor.
Several times in the life of this site, we’ve revised the comments policy so as to limit offensive speech. We’re about to do so again—and this time move the goal line. Whereas in the past we have published comments on the basis of whether they abide by certain ground rules, our new policy will involve editorial discretion about the content of comments.
The important battle of explaining to people that opposing Zionism does not equal anti-Semitism was dealt a terrible blow this past week with the exposure of anti-Semitic tweets by a leader of the Free Gaza Movement, Greta Berlin. Wherever your line is for what’s acceptable speech about Jews, Berlin’s statements and attitude were over the line and have done great damage to the cause of ending the siege of Gaza and working towards justice in Israel/Palestine.
In a dialogue with OUT’s editors, novelist Schulman establishes that the magazine got assistance from the Israeli Ministry of Tourism for an issue it is preparing on gay life there. Schulman says Israel is exploiting the hard won gains of its LGBT movement to falsely brand itself to the world as “progressive.”
For the next few days Adam Horowitz will be moving and Phil Weiss will be traveling, so the site will be in a bit of a lull. Read a good book. We should catch up some by the weekend. In … Continue reading

Caterpillar’s complicity in Israeli occupation played a part in MSCI delisting and TIAA-CREF divestment
The decisions by TIAA-CREF to divest $73 million in Caterpillar stock from a socially-responsible investment fund and MSCI to delist Caterpillar from an influential socially responsible investing index has hit a giant political nerve. Over the course of several interviews with people in a position to know, it became clear to us today that Caterpillar’s relationship to the Israeli occupation was an important consideration in these landmark decisions.
Twice a year we ask for your support, and we usually talk about breaking the mainstream media’s blockade on the Israel/Palestine issue. Not this time. The issue is finally breaking the surface, and we need your help to keep pushing and shaking up the discourse. (Image: Ethan Heitner)
The deportation of Sandra Tamari at Ben Gurion airport and the American embassy’s response to her case — “Are you Jewish?” — continues to be a news story. Read Tamari’s recollection of the call from the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, which the AP’s Matt Lee questioned the State Department on today.
American media are at last beginning to convey a more balanced picture of the Israel Palestine conflict, at least in the letters to the editor.
From Selma to Qalandiya– water cannons used against peaceful demonstrators
We are adding two new rules to our comments policy: No Holocaust or Nakba denial, and we’re not interested in turning the site into a forum for discussing different versions of the 9/11 attacks.
