Keep breathing – We Are Not Numbers

My life, like many of us who live in Gaza, is marked by separation, loss and endurance. It is a story that has repeated itself over generations.  My late grandfather shared many stories about his childhood and life on a farm in the Palestinian village of Kartya. In 1947, Kartya was an agricultural town located northeastContinue reading “Keep breathing – We Are Not Numbers”

After the West Bank When (How Soon) Will the East Follow? – American Herald Tribune

There may well be a third intifada on the West Bank  and it would take only a few shots across the river for Israel to have the ‘security’ pretext (the protection of its 11,000 illegal settlers in the Jordan valley) for crossing the water and establishing itself on the east bank.  An immediate acquisition wouldContinue reading “After the West Bank When (How Soon) Will the East Follow? – American Herald Tribune”

Hollow Dem Opposition to Netanyahu Regime’s Annexation Scheme – Stephen Lendman

The notion of a democratic Jewish state is one of history’s disturbing myths about a nation contemptuous of the idea.  Of course, the same applies to US and other Western countries, scorning the notion of democratic governance from inception, tolerating it neither at home or abroad.

Countering the Judaization of the Rest of Palestine – Global Research

Netanyahu’s impending annexation of the Judaized parts of the West Bank (he says July 1st) is a transformative event for Palestinian politics, and the Palestinian people, who have long been reined in by impositions that accept Zionist myths and outright falsehoods and pay only lip-service to the clear historic record of the Nakba — theContinue reading “Countering the Judaization of the Rest of Palestine – Global Research”

The Irreconcilable Conflict with Zionism – American Herald Tribune

Israel thinks it has finally won its war against the Palestinians. There are sound reasons for its triumphalism.  İt is armed to the teeth and it has more support than ever before from one of the most powerful governments in the world, the US.  It has the increasingly open support of some Arab governments, with the United Arab Emirates now opening a direct air connection to Tel Aviv.  Corrupt as they might be, these governments areContinue reading “The Irreconcilable Conflict with Zionism – American Herald Tribune”

Why Israel Fears the Nakba: How Memory Became Palestine’s Greatest Weapon – The Palestine Chronicle

Since the start of the peace process in Oslo in the early 1990s, the Palestinian leadership has engaged with Israel and its western benefactors in a useless political exercise that has, ultimately, worsened an already terrible situation. After over 25 years of haggling over bits and pieces of what remained of historic Palestine, Israel and the USContinue reading “Why Israel Fears the Nakba: How Memory Became Palestine’s Greatest Weapon – The Palestine Chronicle”
