  • Palestinian History and Identity in Israeli Schools

    17 novembre 2009, par Sa’id Barghouti
    This article is based on my personal experience as a teacher of Palestinian students in Israeli public schools and through my work as school inspector and history curriculum team coordinator for Arab schools from 1975 until 2004. During this period I was engaged in efforts at textbook reform, and on research about Israel’s education system which I undertook for my doctoral dissertation. Background Israel has a highly centralized public education system which is operated and controlled by (...) suite suite
  • Israël met en garde les Palestiniens contre toute déclaration d’indépendance

    17 novembre 2009,
    Des dirigeants israéliens ont menacé les Palestiniens de rétorsion s’ils proclament un État indépendant sans accord avec Israël, tout en doutant de leur détermination à mettre un tel projet à exécution. Le Premier ministre Benjamin Netanyahu a mis en garde la direction palestinienne contre toute « action unilatérale », mais sans préciser quelles mesures Israël pourrait prendre. L’avertissement de M. Netanyahu répond à la décision des Palestiniens de demander à l’ONU de reconnaître leur indépendance. Les (...) suite suite
  • GOLDSTONEWALLED! US Congress Endorses Israeli War Crimes

    14 November 2009, by Nima Shirazi
    On the afternoon of November 3, 2009, the United States House of Representatives voted in favor of House Resolution 867 (H.Res.867), an AIPAC-backed bill that urges both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to "oppose unequivocally any endorsement or further consideration of the "Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict," referred to commonly as the "Goldstone Report." With this vote, the US Congress has not only enshrined its (...) continue continue
  • War Criminals Are Becoming Arbiters of the Law

    14 October 2009, by PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
    The double standard under which the Israeli government operates is too much for everyone except the brainwashed Americans. Even the very Israeli Jerusalem Post can see the double standard displayed by “all of Israel now speaking in one voice against the Goldstone report”: “This is the Israeli notion of a fair deal: We’re entitled to do whatever the hell we want to the Palestinians because, by definition, whatever we do to them is self-defense. They, however, are not entitled to lift a (...) continue continue
  • Trying to Try Sharon

    11 October 2001, by Linda A. Malone
    The concept of universal jurisdiction in international law is undergoing a historic test in Belgium. On November 28, a Belgian court will decide whether Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon can be tried for his alleged role in the slaughter by Lebanese militiamen of untold numbers of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in West Beirut in 1982. At the time, Sharon was in charge of Israel’s invasion and occupation of Lebanon. On October 3, an appellate court (...) continue continue

  • Gaza : Ban Ki-moon transmettra le rapport Goldstone au Conseil de sécurité

    6 novembre 2009,
    Le chef de l’ONU Ban Ki-moon a indiqué vendredi qu’il allait transmettre au Conseil de sécurité le rapport de la commission Goldstone, qui accuse Israël et les Palestiniens de crimes de guerre lors de l’offensive militaire israélienne à Gaza en décembre-janvier. "A la demande de l’Assemblée générale, je transmettrai le rapport de la commission d’enquête au Conseil de sécurité", a-t-il déclaré à la presse. Prié de dire quand il le ferait, M. Ban a répondu : "Le plus tôt possible". L’Assemblée générale de (...) suite suite
  • Les prisons de l’Autorité palestinienne, univers de violence et de non-droit

    6 novembre 2009, par Adrien Jaulmes
    La guerre civile entre le Hamas et l’Autorité palestinienne se livre à travers des campagnes de répression mutuelles. Alors que le mouvement islamique emprisonne à Gaza les militants du Fatah, le gouvernement de Mahmoud Abbas fait la chasse à ceux du Hamas en Cisjordanie. Dans les prisons des deux entités palestiniennes ennemies, les mauvais traitements et les tortures sont devenus courants. Depuis le début de l’année, quatre détenus politiques sont décédés dans des circonstances peu claires dans les (...) suite suite
  • Arab anger as Hillary Clinton backs Israel on settlements

    2 November 2009, by Ian Black
    Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, sought to deflect the anger and disappointment of pro-western Arab states today after backing Israel’s position that it did not need to freeze settlement activity as a prelude to resuming peace talks with the Palestinians. Clinton was due to meet foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other key Arab states at a G8 conference in Morocco after brief talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah at the weekend. In what appeared to be a significant policy (...) continue continue
  • Palestine in Pieces

    25 October 2009, by Jeff Gore
    In 1979, Kathleen and Bill Christison retired from the CIA, where they worked as analysts. Ever since then, they’ve had an unorthodox retirement, to say the least. With only a couple relatively brief interludes, they’ve dedicated what could have been years of relaxation to fighting perhaps the most uphill battle imaginable: trying to bring the plight of the Palestinians to the public eye. The newest addition to the Christison canon is Palestine in Pieces: Graphic Perspectives on the Israeli (...) continue continue
