Israel cut off the water supply to 45,000 Palestinians this week while Prime Minister Netanyahu was traipsing across the globe signing historic legislation with the governor of my very own state, California, on — you guessed it — water conservation!
More than any other boycott campaign, the one against the Israeli company SodaStream crystallized the growing momentum and challenges for critics of Israel’s policies, especially the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The main obstacle that BDS supporters encountered was pro-SodaStream Palestinian testimonies. Writer Benjamin Katz-Nussbaum critically dissects how those testimonies were used.
Tufts University Students for Justice in Palestine organized a very creative campus-wide action to introduce the concept of occupation to the often-insulated Tufts student body.
Nessma Eman Bashi reflects on her recent trip to the West Bank.
‘It was clear to me as a black person just what I was seeing around me’: Report from an African-American delegation to Israel/Palestine
Last week two members of a delegation of African American journalists and artists who traveled to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories in January spoke of their experiences at a public forum held at the historic Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ (PCUCC) in Northeast Washington, D.C.
Last week the Israeli military presented the online campaign “IDF Diversity Week” as a counter to the Israel Apartheid Week events taking place worldwide. Katie Miranda proposes some examples for the military’s campaign, and highlights how despite their diverse backgrounds Israel’s soldiers seem united in one goal.
Photos of Israeli police threatening journalists at gunpoint in Jerusalem.
On January 28, Naftali Bennett gave a spellbinder of a speech (see video above) at The Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) annual conference. The speech positioned Bennett as the standard bearer for a type of hardline Zionism which unlike its mainstream political opposition, does not even pretend that it is willing to make peace with the Palestinians.
Israelis have grown content living in a large bubble of denial. Netanyahu and his ministers are making every effort to reinforce that bubble, just as they have tried to shield Israelis from the fact that they live in the Middle East, not Europe, by building walls on every side – both physical and bureaucratic – to exclude Palestinians, Arab neighbours, foreign workers and asylum seekers.
Palestinians in Hebron demand Israel ‘Open Shuhada Street’ and protest twentieth anniversary of Ibrahimi mosque massacre
On Friday around one thousand Palestinian and Israeli activists protested in the West Bank city of Hebron to reopen Shuhada Street.
In Israel torturing Palestinian prisoners is illegal, but since 2001 there has not been a single conviction—even when the state admits its use. Above, the shabach position is demonstrated: A prisoner is bound to a low tilted chair with one hand tied behind him. The suspect’s head is covered by an opaque sack. Loud music is played in the room.
With pressure imposed by the international community through a BDS campaign similar to the anti-Apartheid campaign which brought Apartheid South Africa to an end, we believe that Israel itself can be pressured to end its multi-tiered system of oppression.
Do these teens remind you of the dizzy teens awaiting the Beatles? Change the scene: Days before John Kerry will arrive in the Middle East for more negotiations, thousands of Israelis marched in the occupied Jerusalem hills to claim land that would be essential to a two-state solution
Speaking Love to Power: ‘Segregated by Color’ campaign fights forced separation of Palestinian families
Photographers and star-crossed lovers from around the world have gotten together to produce a video for Palestinian lovers this Valentine’s Day. The video targets Israel’s Citizenship Law, which prohibits Palestinian spouses of Israeli citizens from gaining residency or citizenship in Israel.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rarely been so politically embattled. His travails indicate the Israeli right’s inability to respond to a shifting political landscape, both in the region and globally. U.S.-led negotiations may not lead to an agreement, but they will mark a historic turning-point nonetheless. The delegitimisation of Israel is truly under way, and the party doing most of the damage is the Israeli leadership itself.
German European Parliament President Martin Schulz caused an uproar during his address to the Knesset today because of remarks he made about conditions in occupied Palestine.
Life in Gaza in becoming more difficult than ever with the blockade and unavailability of essential services such as water. Water in Gaza is heavily contaminated with salt and sewage which are difficult to remove. The majority of the population in the strip depends on desalinated water purchased from private vendors at high cost ($13 for one cubic meter). Families with poor conditions can’t afford desalinated water; therefore depend on contaminated municipal water or water from private agricultural wells. This impacts people’s health, particularly children and puts their safety at risk. Water contamination causes serious diseases such as cancer, liver problems, renal failure, high blood pressure, diarrhea, and hepatitis.
New York Times offers Israeli propaganda that it does not split up Palestinian families. But an Israeli human rights organization and the leading Israeli newspaper says Israel tears families apart. Why doesn’t the Times tell us that?
Safa and Nabil Sbaih hope to build a new house in their home village of Al Aqaba.
Why doesn’t Netanyahu doesn’t break from his right wing pack and accept Mahmoud Abbas’s offer for an American-led NATO occupation of Palestine? He would take almost all of Palestine while leaving a cheap and subservient labor pool of millions of Palestinians for Israeli and Palestinian kingpins. Call it the SodaStream solution.
As a result of the discriminatory system of ethnic privilege that Israel has instituted in the territories that it controls between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea, Palestinians living in different areas face different Israeli-imposed obstacles to exercising their rights to education and academic freedom.
Like Hirsh Goodman, Rabbi Brian Walt grew up in South Africa. There he witnessed discriminatory policies that resonated when he visited Israel and Palestine: The confiscation of vast tracts of Palestinian land, discriminatory zoning practices that restrict Palestinian housing while towns with thousands of homes are built for Jews, the creation of huge exclusive Jewish settlements on the West Bank, intense restrictions on freedom of movement, imprisonment without trial, the arrest of children in the middle of the night.
Today, Scarlett Johansson’s commercial for SodaSteam will debut during the Super Bowl. Katie Miranda presents a more truthful version of the settlement-based fizzy water maker that should appear in primetime.
IMEMC Thursday evening 30 Jan by Chris Carlson — The Israeli army demolished, on Thursday, at least 50 structures, including residences, displacing 13 families in the northern Jordan Valley, as a result, according to a local official.
Palestinians launch campaign against Israeli annexation of Jordan Valley by reviving village of Ein Hijleh
Hundreds of Palestinians announced today the launching of “Melh Al-Ard” (Salt of the Earth) campaign by reviving the village of Ein Hijleh in the Jordan Valley on land belonging to the Orthodox Church and St. Gerassimos monastery. The campaign is launched in refusal of Israeli policies aimed at Judaizing and annexing the Jordan Valley.
