  • Justice for Palestine, Palestine for Global Justice: A Contribution to the Discussion on Zionism

    5 January 2010, by Michel Warschawski
    “Why must we deal with Zionism? Zionism is history, mere ideology, and one should focus on the real political reality, not on ideologies.” Such a statement is not unusual in the Palestine solidarity movement, and definitely needs to be answered, for Zionism is neither a mere ideology nor a matter of the past, but a living political movement, embodied by the State of Israel and its policy. Without a clear analysis of the nature of Zionism, one cannot understand the failure of the “peace (...) continue continue
  • “Settlement Freeze" or Strategic Deportation?

    12 January 2010, by Signe Fischer Smidt
    The current “settlement freeze” is nothing but another act in the Israeli government’s theatrical play of showing the world that they are willing to make concessions in order to solve the conflict. Let us get one thing straight—the settlement construct ion continues, just as the strategic deportation of Palestinians in East Jerusalem continues. The rights of Palestinians are being violated on a daily basis and to them it becomes increasingly evident that the last thing on Netanyahu’s mind is (...) continue continue
  • Once More Into the Breach

    December 2009, by Ussama Makdisi
    Rashid Khalidi, Sowing Crisis: The Cold War and American Dominance in the Middle East (Boston: Beacon Press, 2009) Patrick Tyler, A World of Trouble: America in the Middle East (London: Portobello Books, 2009) The first decade of the twenty-first century may well be remembered as the biggest boom time ever for Middle East studies.

    11 December 2009,
    December 10, 2009, on the International Human Rights Day and the day Obama received the Nobel’s peace prize, the Israeli army paid a visit to the remote village of Khirbet Tana in the northern West Bank, confiscating their tractors and letting the villagers know that their homes would soon be demolished.

  • حدثونا من فضلكم عن السيادة المصرية!

    بقلم أحمد الخميسي
    هذا مقال قديم، لكني أرجوك ألا تتركه خاصة أنه ليس طويلا ولا مملا!، لأنه ما من مقال ينطبق على ما جرى مع قافلة شريان الحياة قدر ما ينطبق هذا المقال الذي نشر في مطلع مارس عام ٢٠٠٨عندما حاول الفلسطينيون المحاصرون من كل جهات الأرض الاندفاع إلي نسمة هواء عبر حدود مصر. حينذاك ارتفعت أصوات كثيرة تكلمنا عن سيادة مصر، كما ترتفع الآن بنفس النغمة بشأن قافلة شريان الحياة. إنه مقال قديم، لكني أرجوك ألا تتركه. أود الآن أن أسمع صوت تلك الجوقة التي رفعت أصواتها بالحديث عن"سيادة مصر "، وعن " الخطوط الحمراء " وعن " كرامة بلادنا " عندما اجتاز الفلسطينيون رفح إلي سيناء. حينذاك (...) تتمة تتمة

    22 December 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.

Unlike the preceding Tribunals, the aim in this (...) continue continue

  • Another EU policy statement will not stop Israel’s colonization

    9 December 2009, by Hasan Abu Nimah
    Israel started a preemptive campaign against a EU statement on the Middle East session even before it was formally presented for discussion by EU ministers this week on whether to adopt it. Israeli spokesmen expressed outrage at what they saw as an EU effort to "divide" Jerusalem, and claimed that the European position would "harm the peace process," as if it is only Israel that has been carefully protecting it from the harmful moves of others. Despite the usual hype, the document, a (...) continue continue
