Children killed dring 'Operation Cast Lead'
  image 1 image
What kind of sick person would kill children asleep in their beds? What sadistic, twisted logic would ever make someone think its ok to murder children? There is no justification, ever, for the killing of children. more >>
Although I do not support violent means of resistance, I do not find that they de-legitimize the struggle of any oppressed group, nor do they sanctify the oppressor. With that that in mind, the abhorrent murder of the Fogel family, in the settlement of Itamar, is beyond reproach. more >>
When I am in Palestine, I work as a volunteer reporter for the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC). My job is to read and edit English translations of news reported from inside the occupied territories. I see what mainstream media does not cover and most Americans do not know. Daily accounts of Israeli incursions, house raids, arrests, attacks by Jewish settlers, house demolitions, and violent attacks on peace demonstrators are facts that belie the undercurrent of discontent expressed by people I work with. more >>

In Palestine, it’s called popular resistance and has been going on for years – in fact, since 1987, when Israel began occupation of Palestinian territories taken in a six day war. Resistance tactics, once violent, changed over the years. Rockets fired into Israel abated, and the suicide bombers highlighted by the press stopped. They had served Israel well in appeals for security funding from the U.S. to build walls and supply its militia with tanks and weapons. more >>
The revolution that surprised many people would come as no surprise to anyone who comes and takes time to listen to the “real” people. Israel's undemocratic policies supported by the U.S., push Palestinians to revolt. more >>

Larry Derfner wrote a suggestive column in the Jerusalem Post about what he hopes is the coming Palestinian democratic revolution. It got me to thinking about how such a thing might happen. Before I lay out my ideas I want everyone to understand that I do this not as a Palestinian, so I assume a certain humility in suggesting that others do things based on my own vision of how a Palestinian non-violent revolution could evolve. more >>

If apartheid is a crime, there is only one way to treat its practitioners: arrest them. That is precisely what I tried to do when I confronted Avigdor Lieberman, the architect of a series of laws designed to make Israeli apartheid even more draconian than it already is. more >>
“They come for our woman and our children,” Bassem Tamimi, the leader of the Popular Committee of Nabi Saleh recently told me, “they [the Israeli army] know that woman are half our population and half our strength and so they target them along with the children.” Tamimi, a gentle man with a warm smile spoke to me about the repression of his village as we sat in his home overlooking the settlement of Halamish. “They know where to apply pressure on our resistance. It has become really difficult since the last wave of arrests.” more >>
