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 ...

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.

عن المعرفة والمأسسة والتعليم

استهلال مفاهيمي لا تزال أحد أهم الأفكار التي أضاءها الحراك الثوري (المستمر، والمتراكم إلى الآن) في بلادنا، وفي بنية العقل العربي، في شأن المسافة بين المجتمع والدولة/ المؤسسة، هي أنّ تغوُّل وتنامي حجم المؤسسة وثقافتها لا يمكن مقاربته إلا باعتباره ردة لفعل، أيّ أنّ المجتمع (والفرد/ المواطن في قلبه) هما دومًا "الفعل". وبقدر زخم هذا الفعل وفعاليته على الأرض، تتحدد دومًا "ردة الفعل"، باعتبارها معاكسة له في الاتجاه، وتكاد تقاربه في المقدار. وصولًا إلى مراحل انتصر فيها المجتمع على المؤسسة (كما حدث في مصر وتونس، مرحليًّا)، وأعاد إنتاج نفسه –كظاهرة خطابية، ورمزية وإلى درجة ما مادية- بشكلٍ ما، في وقت استغلته المؤسسة لإعادة إنتاج نفسها، هي أيضًا، كموجة تالية ...

A Few Thoughts on Leaving Academe

Next week, I will depart Beirut and return to the DC area. I’m grateful to the students and friends who made our time in Lebanon so rewarding. We’ll remember this period with great fondness. My son grew from a toddler into a little boy in Beirut. His first memories are registered at AUB. Despite applying to positions on four continents, I was unable to find an academic job, so I no longer count myself among the professoriate. A number of colleagues have attempted to recruit me, but their efforts always get shut down by management. In turn, I often feel like I’m reliving the UIUC fiasco, which isn’t conducive to the kind of mood I prefer to inhabit. I’m easygoing, but ...

تقرير: خمسون عاماً على احتلال القدس الشرقية: سياسات القضم والإبعاد والتهويد تتواصل

[المصدر موقع الجبهة]

بعد مرور 50 عاماً على الاحتلال الإسرائيلي لمدينة القدس الشرقية، باتت مساحتها تتقلص أكثر فأكثر لحساب المستعمرات، إلاّ إن عدد الفلسطينيين يزداد على نحو يؤشر إلى فشل سياسات التهويد الإسرائيلية. مع بداية الاحتلال الإسرائيلي للقدس الشرقية في سنة 1967 كان عدد سكانها بشطرَيها الشرقي والغربي 266,300 نسمة تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 68,600 منهم (أي 26%)، واليهود 197,700 تقريباً (أي 74%)؛ لكن مع نهاية سنة 2014 بلغ عدد سكان المدينة بشطرَيها 849,800 تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 351,900 تقريباً منهم (أي 37%)، واليهود 533,900 تقريباً (أي 63%)، وذلك بحسب معطيات مركز القدس لبحث السياسات، الإسرائيلي شبه الحكومي. غير أن تزايد عدد السكان يترافق مع تقلص مستمر في مساحات الأراضي المتاحة لسكان ...

The United Nations and Palestine: Biased?

United Nations Flag by sanjitbakshi via Creative Commons

It is common currency to accuse the United Nations (UN) of harboring an inveterate anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian bias. Israel, so the claim goes, is consistently held to a higher standard than other states that manage to escape the world body’s scrutiny despite their abysmal records, and is consistently condemned by the UN for engaging in a legitimate struggle for survival against the Palestinians and other Arabs. To an even greater extent than her predecessors, the current US permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, has made combatting the world body’s purported anti-Israel obsession a personal crusade – in the process easily exceeding her Israeli ...

الهَدم والبناء الاستعماري في الجولان

[لافتات للدلالة على المكان تشير إلى

افتتاحية في السابع من أيلول من العام المُنصرم، داهمت سلطات الاحتلال الإسرائيلي قرية مجدل شمس السورية، ونفّذت أمام أعين عشرات السكّان، مُستخدمةً جرّافاتها الثقيلة، أمر هدم منزل السيّد بسام جميل إبراهيم وزوجته داليا بدعوى تشييده دون ترخيص بناء، معلنةً بذلك نيّتها عن هدم عشرات المنازل التابعة للسكان السوريين في قرى الجولان المُحتل1. بالرغم من أن عملية الهدم هذه قد تبدو سابقة في قرى الجولان المُحتل في العقد الأخير، إلّا أنها في الواقع لا تشكّل حدثًا مفصليًا وفريدًا من نوعه، بل حتى بعيدة كل البعد عن ذلك. كَيف لنا قراءة مُمارسة المشروع الصهيوني تجاه الحيّز والجغرافيا في الجولان؟ وأين يمكن مَوضَعة هدم البيوت اليوم في السياق التاريخي الأوسع، وأية عمليات للبناء تقوم مقابل هذا ...

Critical Readings in Political Economy: 1967

Guy Laron, The Six-Day War (Yale University Press, 2017). Amidst the forest-felling libraries of literature on the question of Palestine, Israel’s 1967 war of aggression is perhaps responsible for the largest clear-cuts. So much is manufactured. Yet so little is useful or new. Part of the problem is the massive industry – literally – whose product is perpetual dispute over the most basic facts. Colonial expansion generates resistance. Both processes require intellectual support. For that reason, ...

Making Sense of Jerusalem, Gaza, and Anti-BDS Legislation in the United States

The past two weeks have been filled with a flurry of news and developments concerning Palestine that have appeared in piecemeal fashion. As per usual, mainstream international and US media have portrayed events in Jerusalem and Gaza, as well as legislation in the United States, as isolated incidents lacking context. The protagonists in these stories are Israelis with Palestinian shadows. The failure to document the structural violence afflicting Palestinian lives portrays these events as ruptures rather ...
