With the news that the UN General Assembly has voted 138-9 to accept Palestine as a “non-member observer state,” fireworks erupted and horns honked in Gaza. Finally, Palestinians were feeling as if they were having their day in the sun.
As Israel continues to pound the Gaza Strip, and factions within the beleaguered territory retaliate as best they can, there are many myths and stereotypes dominating mainstream media coverage, and many conversations. Here are a few of the most common misunderstandings.
In my last post, I noted the false choice that seemed to be emerging amidst all the outpouring of grief (and a certain amount of hoopla) surrounding the shooting of Malala: In other words, stop the U.S. drone attacks or the Taliban. Since then, that debate has now come front and center, along with a growing suspicion among sectors of the public of everyone involved. Two narratives. Two agendas. Both have merit, but instead of the parties working together for mutual good, an epic battle is shaping up.
A year later, the March 15th movement for unity between Palestinian factions seems to have lost energy in Gaza.

As someone who spends a lot of time performing critical analysis of the press as well as studying propaganda in general, there are occasionally stories which prick my interest. A couple of days ago, a story appeared on the IDF Spokesperson’s … Continue reading
The Egyptian uprising against the Mubarak regime is historic and important in its own right. But it may also lead to significant changes in the region that could be positive for the Palestinian cause. Israel is worried about a reliable … Continue reading

The question is not whether there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, but whether there is collective punishment
Recently, it was announced that Israel will allow limited marketing of Gaza’s goods outside of the Strip – an encouraging step. It has also been suggested (article in Hebrew), that the closure has had a limited impact on the level of … Continue reading
