A video that is part of a campaign to pressure the Catalan and Spanish governments to end military and security cooperation with Israel.
Joseph Massad’s contribution to the 65th anniversary of the Nakba, published on Al Jazeera’s website, is called “The Last of the Semites.” The subtitle is telling: “It is Israel’s claims that it represents and speaks for all Jews that are the most anti-Semitic claims of all.”
Clashes broke out across the West Bank, including in East Jerusalem, yesterday as Palestinians marked the 65th anniversary of the Nakba. Allison Deger reports from Ofer prison where protesters faced off with Israeli soldiers.
Moriel Rothman uses the Shamasneh family eviction case in Sheikh Jarrah as an example of how the dispossession of the Palestinian people continues today, albeit in less dramatic fashion than 65 years ago.
Have you noticed that over the years, the celebration of Israel by Jews around the world which uses its own narrative of suffering, struggle and independence has diminished precipitously? Like it fell off a cliff.
A teacher, journalist, and writer, Ghassan Kanafani’s wide reach of influence continues even today, especially in the terms of his literature. His works will forever have a seamless connection to the hope for freedom in Israel/Palestine, a goal that even Kanafani knew would become the responsibility of future Israeli and Palestinian generations.
A photo essay of a rally in Gaza to mark the 65th anniversary of the Nakba.
The meaning of liberation of Palestine is not a narrow one of ending a military regime in the West Bank and the military siege on Gaza. It is a broader one that includes decolonizing Palestine, and implementing the return. Supporting justice in Palestine would mean understanding that without return, Palestine won’t be free.
On the 65th anniversary of the Nakba, at least 45% of the total Palestinian population worldwide are refugees
MEMO: “According to PCBS, UNRWA records show that there were 5.3 million Palestinian refugees registered in mid-2012, constituting 45.7 per cent of the total Palestinian population worldwide. They were distributed as 59 per cent living in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, 17 per cent in the West Bank, and 24 per cent in the Gaza Strip. About 29 per cent of registered Palestinian refugees live in 58 refugee camps, of which 10 are in Jordan, nine in Syria, 12 in Lebanon, 19 in the West Bank and eight in the Gaza Strip.”
Visualizing Palestine has released its latest infographic to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the Nakba.
May 15 marks the 65th anniversary of the Nakba. Although this commemoration remembers a moment in history, the Nabka is an ongoing process to displace and dispossess the Palestinian people of their land. As the Badil Center’s Amjad Alqasis writes, “The Nakba fundamentally altered Palestine. However the idea of forcible displacement of the indigenous Palestinian people did not end with the establishment of Israel in 1948, it rather started that year.”
For the second time in two years, students at Tel Aviv University (TAU) commemorating the 1947-49 Palestinian expulsion and the destruction of villages were met with a counter-protest. At last year’s event over 1,000 amassed on campus, ending in clashes incited by members of Knesset. Again this year, the youth-based “new Zionist” group Im Tirtzu bottom-lined the demonstration, distributing a counter analysis pamphlet titled “Nakba Harta” or “Nakba-Bullshit”.
Newseum glorifies the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by honoring Hank Greenspun’s gun-running to Israel in the 1940s.
The Coalition to Stop $30 Billion to Israel is proud to announce yet another billboard has just gone up calling for an end to military aid to Israel–this time in Albany, New York.
May 8 is Jerusalem Day, and Israelis are already celebrating by issuing declarations about how many Jewish babies Jerusalem Jews are producing and how many Palestinians are producing
The memorialization of victims may be a way of enabling powers in society to keep to their same path or even increase their ability to do so. These powers rarely think that the violence they memorialize will befall them or their loved ones. In any case, their affluence and status is too embedded in the system as it is. Why change?
BDS South Africa says that several demonstrators against Israeli birthday celebration in Johannesburg were attacked by supporters of Israel, and one suffered a concussion
Insights, takeaways and powerful points made by the speakers and presenters at the Right of Return conference held April 6 & 7 2013 at Boston University Law School.
The Tel Aviv neighborhoods of Shapira and Neve Sha’anan are the parts of town where cracks in the concrete do not get fixed and they’re never featured in guidebooks for the White City. Crumbling between the 1960s era homes and recently fabricated tin structures is a ghost of Israel’s past: a Palestinian mansion only a five-minute walk from the center of the city’s transport system. Dubbed the “Red House,” this structure serves as a reminder that Israel’s first city was not built from empty sand dunes.
The first Palestinian Right of Return Conference to occur in the United States took place at Boston University in 2000. The conference, which featured prominent academics such as Noam Chomsky and the late Edward Said, was an effort by proponents of Palestinian rights to advocate for a mitigation of the historical tragedy that happened to the Palestinian people in 1948. Thirteen years later, Boston-area students, activists and academics have organized another conference at the same university because of this continuing catastrophe and the urgent need for a just political solution for Palestinian refugees.
‘Do you know any Arabs in London?’ Israeli airport authorities grill British photojournalist before kicking him out
Mark Kerrison was detained at Ben Gurion airport and then deported earlier this month for reasons that were never explained, though border officials seemed very concerned that he might talk to Palestinians. Here he relates his ordeal, including one comfort he had in jail: “My eyes were most drawn, though, to some words in small, inconspicuous lettering immediately above my head: ‘I don’t pretend to know night-time from day, but if I were your God I’d have something to say.’”
The open air prison is being used by Israel as a prison: thus its freeing of Ayman Sharawna on condition that he be held in Gaza for ten years
Palestinian identity in Israel underwent many evolutionary transformations since 1948. Palestinian citizens of Israel had to adapt to a political system that aimed to erase them: an inherent and an integral component in Zionist thought. Palestinian citizens of Israel have dealt with their erasure in a variety of ways over the years and this article presents example of Palestinian un-erasure and identity since the outbreak of the first Intifada in 1987.
This week, South Africa will host the 9th international Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) campaign that takes places annually during February and March around the globe in over 250 cities
Are American media saying anything about the land confiscation that is a way of life for Palestinians living under occupation?
