Palestine-Israel

The Legacy of 1960s and 1970s Arab American Activism

[Free Palestine banner. Image taken by Takver and uploaded via Flickr]

Book Review: The Rise of the Arab-American Left: Activists, Allies, and Their Fight against Imperialism and Racism, 1960s-1980s, Pamela E. Pennock In The Rise of the Arab-American Left, University of Michigan-Dearborn historian Pamela Pennock argues that the history of Arab-American activism is absent from narratives of American leftist organizing of the 1960s and 1970s. Pennock is a scholar of contemporary American history and highlights what scholars of Arab American studies have long argued: this community has been made invisible in terms of domestic political representation and has not benefitted from accurate portrayals in the media. Like the late Jack Shaheen, ...

مَعرض "الشِقَاق" لبنجي بوياجيان: زَخارِف تحتفي بالحرفةِ والأخطاء وبصمات تركها عابرون في تاريخِ المكان يقال بأن الأخطاء تُقترف عمدا في السجاد العجمي، لأن النسّاجين يؤمنون بأن "الكمال لله وحده"، وأن الأخطاء بمثابة شقوق تدخل منها الروح لحماية القطعة. كثيراً ما تأملت الأشكال والزخارف التي تزين السجاد باحثة عن أخطاء تؤكد لي إذا ما كانت القطعة يدوية صنعتها أياد بشرية، أم آلية الصنع مؤتمتة لا أخطاء فيها ولا تمتلك روحاً لحظة اكتشاف الأخطاء دائما تسرني وكأنني أجد كنزا مخبأً بين الزخارف الملونة. لذا أنظر مليا إلى البلاط المزخرف الذي رصف أرضية الغرفة ذات الواجهات الزجاجية الكبيرة التي جلسنا أنا وبنجي بوياجيان نتحدث فيها عن معرضه "الشِقَاق" ...

New Texts Out Now: Mazen Masri, The Dynamics of Exclusionary Constitutionalism: Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State

Mazen Masri, The Dynamics of Exclusionary Constitutionalism: Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State. London: Bloomsbury Professional, 2017. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Mazen Masri (MM): The question of the book–Israel’s definition as a Jewish and democratic state–is one that I have been preoccupied with since I took the constitutional law course in the first year of my law degree at the Hebrew University. I was struck by how this contradiction is explained away using liberal language. The arguments and the explanations presented a picture that did not match the lived experience of many people, myself included. My interest in this question became ...

Bombast of Mass Slayer

[Art by Serwan Baran]

My name is Mass Slayer. I live in bombs and bullets, in cannons and rockets. I live in the nucleus of you. I could be an army, a lone wolf, or a terrorist band. I need not toil, pay individual visits, like the everyday Reaper. I stun as many as I can, in one go, I stun them on a street, in a bar, in a temple, in the battlefield, in the comfort of their homes-- and you could be there. Nothing pleases me though more than being in the news, and nothing pleases the news more than my exploits. What a joy to star in a movie, to be shared and streamed, flashing my motto, Viva La Muerte! Drench me with tears and condemnations, I thrive on mass ...

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

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 ...

The United Nations and Palestine: Biased?

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 ...

الهَدم والبناء الاستعماري في الجولان

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. ...

الاستقطاب عند حماس: بين المدرسة والمسجد

Familiar Ruptures and Opportunities, 1967 and 2017

The 1967 war was a fundamental, damning failure for the Arab world. In the course of six short days, Israel expanded its jurisdiction across the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian Golan Heights, as well as the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. For nineteen years, Arab states had regarded Israel as a foreign colony established by the collusion of imperial powers. Amid the anti-colonial fervor that animated much of the global south at the time, these states refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish ...
