New Texts Out Now: Toufic Haddad, Palestine Ltd.: Neoliberalism and Nationalism in the Occupied Territory

Toufic Haddad, Palestine Ltd.: Neoliberalism and Nationalism in the Occupied Territory.  London: I.B. Tauris and Center for Palestine Studies, London Middle East Institute, 2016.  Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Toufic Haddad (TH): I wrote this book because I wanted to research the profound transformations Western donor aid was having on Palestinian political and economic life across the 1967 Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) since the signing of the 1993 Oslo peace accords between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Western donors have been central actors in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but their role is too ...

Vox Populi Roundup (August)

[A picture from the play

English Mashrou’ Leila and the night club’s political power On a recent breezeless afternoon, I met two young Saudi women sitting on the grass outside the Prospect Park Bandshell, in Brooklyn. They were wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the logo of the Lebanese alternative-rock band Mashrou’ Leila, and they were snapping selfies where the band was scheduled to headline at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival later that evening.  Can Arab Artists Survive? Can Arab artists survive the shrinking space for freedom of expression in many of their home countries? Can they survive the difficulty of finding a place to work with colleagues? Can they survive being ...

George Wassouf: the People's Champ

[Album cover: Shei Ghareeb (Something Strange) by George Wassouf. Release date: 1993. Image by Moe Ali Nayel.]

Whenever memories take me back to the time when the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990) had just ended, one sound always echoes along the scenes: it is the special voice of that one singer who will always function as an anchor pinning down that particular slice of my remembrance of the past. Born in 1961 Kafroun, a Syrian village located in the countryside of Homs, George Wassouf came from a modest family. At the age of sixteen, he moved to Lebanon on his own and managed to find the space to shine as the star singer from within the Lebanese music scene. However, the young singer’s move to Beirut in search of his artistic path was far from a story of easy victories and ...

Visualizing Palestine: Residency Revocation

Since 1967, Israel has revoked the residency status of more than 14,500 Palestinians from Jerusalem. Revocation of residency leads to forcible transfer, a war crime under the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court and a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention.  After Israel’s illegal annexation of East Jerusalem, Israel created the status of permanent resident for Palestinians living in the city, making entry into and residency in Jerusalem a revocable privilege instead of an inherent right. This bureaucratic policy, not applicable to Jewish Israelis, is just one of a series of systems designed to forcibly transfer Palestinians from ...

Visualizing Jerusalem: Anatomy of Inequality

Visualizing Palestine presents Anatomy of Inequality, our latest visual in a series exploring Israeli policies on Jerusalem. This original VP illustration, inspired by the commonly held sentiment that Jerusalem is at the heart of Palestine, makes visual reference to anatomical drawings of the heart. The image depicts the illegal annexation wall separating the city and its original inhabitants from each other, reinforcing a physical system of apartheid. West Jerusalem was ethnically cleansed of Palestinians in 1948. The rest of the city was annexed by Israel in 1967 along with most of its Palestinian inhabitants. Today, the Israeli controlled Jerusalem ...

The Fattoush Book Exhibition in Haifa

[This article was published originally Tadween's Al-Diwan blog by Diwan's editor, Mekarem Eljamal.] The Fattoush Book Exhibition, which ran from April 3-8, was more than a simple book fair where city residents and visitors could come to buy the latest Arabic language publications. Organizers of the festival turned it into a space of collaboration between publishing companies across the Arab world, from Dar al-Ahlia in Oman to Dar al-Jamal of Beirut. Gathering publications from these various publishing houses, Fattoush brought over 1,000 Arabic texts to Haifa, many of which have never been available inside the Green Line. At night, different speakers brought the texts to ...

Visualizing Palestine: 50+ Years of Occupation

5 June 2017 marked 50 years of Israel’s occupation, a sobering milestone. The word "occupation" is typically used to describe Israel’s ongoing military rule over the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem since 1967, but the story of Israeli colonialism and occupation is much broader. In its short history, the state of Israel has not only occupied Palestinian land, but also the sovereign territory of three of its four neighboring countries. Today, Israel continues to occupy land in Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine. Download this poster on our website.

2017 ماذا شاهد السوريون/ات خلال رمضان

    اعتادت الدراما التلفزيونية السورية أن تُسيطرعلى سوق العرض الرمضاني العربي. لكن هذه السنة كان الوضع مُغاير، فقد تأثرت الدراما السورية إلى حدّ كبير بالأحداث السياسية التي تشهدها سوريا والمنطقة عموماً. مما أدى لخروج ثلث الأعمال السورية من المنافسة الرمضانية هذا العام. كان التسويق من العوامل الأساسية  المسؤولة عن تراجع مستوى الدراما السورية حيث رفضت الكثير من المحطات العربية وخاصة الخليجية شراء الأعمال السورية بأسعار مناسبة خاصةً تلك التي تقع في فئة الأعمال الاجتماعية المعاصرة. لذلك ...

Anti-ISIS Music in Iraq

 Soon after the withdrawal of most of the US military from Iraq, bequeathing a weak and corrupt clientele government in Baghdad, ISIS took over several Iraqi small towns before occupying Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city in June 2014. The Iraqi army was already suffering from a lack of proper training and was infested with corruption. Young, mostly poor, men started mobilizing to volunteer for the army and al-Hashd al-Sha’abi, or Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), a Shi'a-dominated militia, to ...

The Changing Face of Street Art in the MENA Region: Diminishing the Voice of the People?

Street art in all of its forms has long been associated with subversive goals and a compelling aesthetic. Created by individuals and communities who strived to push back against oppressive systems of power, contribute to civil and political discourses they were otherwise excluded from, and expand upon the boundaries of artistic expression, street art has always been a highly inclusive, accessible, and often effective method for those in a society to amplify their voice. Political actors across the ...
