‘The Israeli sniper shot my son as if he hunted a bird’: Wajih Wajdi Al-Ramahi, 14, killed while standing outside of West Bank school
An Israeli sniper killed a child yesterday. Wajih Wajdi Al-Ramahi, 14 was shot in the back by while walking in front of a school in Jalazoun refugee camp near Ramallah. Thousands of mourners turned out for his funeral is today.
The Americans have moved significantly toward the Israeli view in regard to security arrangements in any future Palestinian state. According to an unnamed Israeli diplomat, the American view of a post-settlement Israeli presence in a future Palestinian state, as presented this week by John Kerry, is very close to that of the Israelis. In fact, Kerry has explicitly agreed to a long-term Israeli military presence in the Jordan Valley, according to an unconfirmed report in the Israeli daily Ma’ariv on Friday.

RAMALLAH (Ma‘an) 6 Dec — Dozens of Palestinians were injured and one detained as Israeli forces opened fire to disperse protests against the Israeli occupation and commemorating Nelson Mandela’s death across the West Bank on Friday afternoon.
As Massachusetts officials and businessmen prepare to launch water industry collaborations with Israeli companies, they should be aware of certain facts about “Israel’s innate understanding of water issues” (as Boston Globe reporter Erin Ailworth put it in a November 17 front page article).
This is the author’s second diary of her life in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. Her first is Palestine to Sheffield: One month away from home.
Al Quds University has been in the news lately as Brandeis has severed its relationship with the Palestinian institution. Tom Sperlinger taught there earlier this year and gives a different view from what we’ve been reading in the press. He describes teaching Shakespeare in Abu Dis while navigating the themes, and trials, of occupation.
The struggle for a just peace in Palestine/Israel, we find ourselves at a precarious crossroads. It is clear that the two-state solution is dead and gone, the victim of deliberate Israeli policies of settlement, territorial confiscation and Israel’s refusal to relinquish control over Palestinians’ lives. Yet the Palestinians, whose lead we must follow, have only just begun formulating alternatives, mainly around the notion of a single democratic state. Finding ourselves locked in a political struggle with no end-game for which to advocate is dangerous and self-defeating; it only invites other forces to step into the breach and impose their own agendas. This post is part of “What Comes Next?: A forum on the end of the two-state paradigm.”
Ari Shavit wants to end the occupation, and is an archetype for what is referred to as “the Left” in Israel, a dwindling breed of earnest defectors from the occupation machine. The Ha’aretz senior columnist and author of “The Promised Land” is a well-positioned and influential political commentator, but he has an abysmal record of reading Palestinian politics. As much as he may reflect the assumptions, and anxieties, of the liberal establishment, it’s clear from his writing that he doesn’t know Palestinians.
Interview with Dr. Haidar Eid: ‘The Palestinian struggle is not about independence — it is about liberation’

What Comes Next: The struggle we are fighting for is the right to assert what our life will look like
Frank Barat talks with Leila Farsakh and Noura Erakat in a wide-ranging interview that took place during a conference in Brussels called “New paradigms for Israel/Palestine.” This post is part of “What Comes Next?: A forum on the end of the two-state paradigm.”
Israel approves construction for 829 new settlement units near Jerusalem.
A few days ago Abir Kopty found a November episode of a Ukrainian game show where an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldier nonchalantly discussed killing Palestinian children.
The two-state solution was based on the idea that West Bank Palestinians would sell out Palestinian refugees to have sovereignty over a fragmented state. But Palestinians never accepted that deal, and of course neither did Israelis, and the continuing dispossession in the West Bank makes violence inevitable.
It’s barely 100 meters, but a fence Israel plans to build through four villages in the heart of the iconic hills of the West Bank shows how deep the occupation reaches into Palestinian life. Earlier this month, the Israeli military ordered the construction of a separation fence in the north central West Bank on agricultural land belonging to four Palestinian villages. This fence is not an extension of the famous separation barrier. Rather it will be a free-floating chain linked plank in the heart of the West Bank. A miniature version of the wall, it separates nothing and can easily be bypassed on foot. Still this fence is part of a patchwork of barriers in the Nablus district that trace the highway system. Allison Deger reports an exclusive.
Imagine that you have to spend your night in utter darkness, to arrange your plan for each day according to a power-cut plan, or to force yourself into bed as there is nothing you can do other than to sit in the dark. If you find it hard to imagine, just ask a Palestinian from Gaza. No one could explain it better. Sarah Salibi writes from Gaza on how she is surviving on 6 hours of electricity a day.
‘New Yorkers Against the Cornell-Technion Partnership’ oppose Technion’s role in U.S. militarization and domestic spying

It seems there are still plenty of parties who would prefer that Arafat’s death continues to be treated as a mystery rather than as an assassination. It is hard, however, to avoid drawing the logical conclusion from the finding last week by Swiss scientists that the Palestinian leader’s body contained high levels of a radioactive isotope, polonium-210. It is time to state the obvious: Arafat was killed. And suspicion falls squarely on Israel. Israel alone had the means, track record, stated intention and motive. Without Israel’s fingerprints on the murder weapon, it may not be quite enough to secure a conviction in a court of law, but it should be evidence enough to convict Israel in the court of world opinion.
Haaretz reports on a massive expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank which reporters Chaim Levinson and Barak Ravid describe as “unprecedented.” Peace Now Director Yair Oppenheimer says the new tenders reveal Israel’s intention in the occupied territories, regardless of whatever negotiations are taking place.
Israeli Oscar contender “Bethlehem” is another film similar to Lebanon, Waltz With Bashir, Walk on Water, and a dozen other recent titles that manage to turn its security industry personnel into the victims, rather than first, and foremost, the perpetrators of violence.
