  • The Russell Tribunal on Palestine work has started

    22 décembre 2009,
    The Russell Tribunal on Palestine has held a meeting in Brussels to prepare for its first session, to be held in Barcelona from 1 to 3 March 2010. In the tradition of the preceding Russell Tribunals, first on Vietnam (launched by Lord Bertrand Russell in 1966) and then on Latin America, this initiative is an authentic peoples’ tribunal aimed at generating public awareness of the serious and recurrent violations of human rights in Palestine. Unlike the preceding Tribunals, the aim in this (...) suite suite

  • Utopia as Alibi : Said, Barenboim and the Divan Orchestra

    par Raymond Dean
    As a classical musician involved in pro-Palestinian activism, I frequently encounter the assumption that I am an unconditional admirer of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (WEDO). My reservations on this score tend to produce shocked disapproval : How could I not enthuse about such an idealistic project, particularly since it was co-founded by the late Edward Said, a figure for whom I have frequently expressed respect and admiration ? In truth, I have always been a little wary of Said’s (...) suite suite

  • Gaza : Bombs, Missiles, Tanks And Bulldozers

    19 juin 2009, par James Carter
    Director of UNRWA operations John Ging, thank you for inviting me to Gaza. Distinguished guests, children of Gaza, I am grateful for your warm reception. I first visited Gaza 36 years ago and returned during the 1980s and later for the very successful Palestinian elections. Although under occupation, this community was relatively peaceful and prosperous. Now, the aftermath of bombs, missiles, tanks, bulldozers and the continuing economic siege have brought death, destruction, pain, and (...) suite suite
  • Israel - a Jewish State or a state of its citizens ?

    par Oren Medicks
    Israel is possibly the only state where such a question could have any meaning. According to the declaration of Independence, Israel belongs to the entire Jewish people, not only to those who choose to live here. This is the foundation for the ‘law of return’, under which every Jew has, upon arrival, the right to immediate Israeli citizenship. This means that Israeli actions are carried out on behalf of the Jewish people and that the Jewish people shares responsibility for Israeli policy. But (...) suite suite
  • Israël, le sionisme et l’antisémitisme

    13 juillet 2004, par Oren Medicks
    "En tant qu’Israélien, concerné par son pays, je crois que l’avenir d’Israël dépend de notre capacité à promouvoir une paix juste et durable avec nos voisins, d’abord et principalement avec le peuple Palestinien. Étant donné les inégalités énormes qui distinguent, dans tous les domaines, les deux sociétés, Israélienne et Palestinienne, seule une intervention efficace en provenance de l’extérieur peut empêcher Israël de continuer sa politique oppressive envers les Palestiniens. Malgré la banalité de ces (...) suite suite

  • Learning the Nakba as a condition for peace and reconciliation

    par Norma Musih
    The Jewish people in Israel, or at least most of them, live in complete ignorance or even denial of the Palestinian disaster that took place in 1948, the Nakba. The Nakba has no place in the language, the landscape, the environment, and the memory of the Jewish collective in Israel. Traveling in Israel, one may find signposts, landmarks and memorials that create and sustain the Jewish-Israeli narrative. Jewish-Israeli events that took place more than 2,000 years ago are celebrated through (...) suite suite
