Introducing Mondoweiss In Print: ‘The World the Settlers Made’

Adam Horowitz on

“I learned more about Israel in these five days in Palestine than in any other trips I’ve made.” Mondoweiss is excited to share our first foray into the world of print, Phil Weiss’s reportage from Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. “The World the Settlers Made” tells the story of five days in January 2016 that Phil Weiss spent immersed in the world of Israeli settlers. The experience gave him a vivid, immediate experience of their daily lives, and a greater understanding of the worldview shaping Israeli politics. “The World the Settlers Made” includes 21 pages of Phil’s reports and is on sale now.

navel-gazing while Rome burns

Israel manhandles Europeans at border. Kerfuffle. Double standard

Foxman likens Palestinians to Nazi–and Mitchell to Switzerland!

Philip Weiss on

In an interview with Politico’s Ben Smith, Anti-Defamation League chief Abe Foxman criticized George Mitchell’s stance of “neutrality.” “The Swiss were neutral [in World War II],” he said. So: Foxman gets to lambaste all Hitler and Holocaust references he doesn’t…

The art of the martyr

Philip Weiss on

Among the astonishments of visiting Gaza are the ubiquitous portraits of martyrs in public places. Such pictures are, obviously, an essential expression of honor in Palestinian culture. My response to these portraits was wholly aesthetic, and not moral. I don’t…
