Visualizing Palestine: Justice Denied

For victims and survivors of the 2014 assault on Gaza, Israel’s own military courts are the only place to seek legal recourse. These courts do not offer a genuine avenue for justice to Palestinians.  Of the 500 Palestinian complaints which were filed with Israeli military courts in relation to the 2014 Gaza war, 196 were dismissed immediately, 133 were lost in the system, and only 31 were brought forward for criminal investigation. Three soldiers were eventually convicted for minor felonies such as credit card theft and looting. Military commanders and politicians—those most responsible for the massive destruction and loss of life—have never been held accountable ...

Visualizing Palestine: #NoAccountability

In July 2014, Israel began a military assault on the Gaza Strip, including an indiscriminate bombing campaign and a brutal ground invasion. In total, the assault killed 1,545 Palestinian civilians, including 556 children, and made 11,166 families homeless. Three years on, no justice has been attained for victims and survivors of the attack. While five hundred Palestinian complaints were filed with Israeli military courts over the 2014 Gaza war, only three soldiers were convicted as of August 2016, for minor felonies such as credit card theft. Military commanders and politicians—those most responsible for the massive loss of life—were never held accountable for their ...

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 ...

Roundtable: Harold Wolpe’s Intellectual Agenda and Writing on Palestine

Introduction (by Max Ajl) In a well-known programmatic note on the relationship of theoretical work to politics, Harold Wolpe, a South African sociologist, anti-apartheid activist, briefly political prisoner, then exile, rejected two opposing positions on intellectual labor. The first was the assertion of complete autonomy, in the sense that research ought to simply emerge organically from the will and whims of the intellectual. The second was a stance of simple justification for the party line. Instead ...

The Politics of the Public Sphere and Navigating State Interactions: The Case of al-Midan Theatre

The history of Israel and the country’s founding lends itself to a complicated understanding of the public sphere. In 1948, Zionist forces expelled upwards of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes; however, fifteen percent of the Palestinians who lived on the land that would subsequently become the State of Israel remained.[1] This segment of the Palestinian population, or ’48 Palestinians, were often forced into neighboring majority Arab villages or corralled into certain neighborhoods in “mixed ...
