Beyond Awards And Accolades: Why Gaza Journalists Are The Best In The World

Beyond Awards And Accolades: Why Gaza Journalists Are The Best In The World

By granting its 2024 World Press Freedom Prize to Palestinian journalists covering the Israeli war on Gaza, UNESCO has acknowledged a historic truth. Even if the decision to name Gaza’s journalists as laureates of its prestigious award was partly motivated by the courage of these journalists, the truth is that no one in the world […]

Israel Wants to Destroy Gaza, Annex the West Bank: But What Does Gaza Want?

Israel Wants to Destroy Gaza, Annex the West Bank: But What Does Gaza Want?

What is taking place in occupied Palestine is not a conflict, but a straightforward case of illegal military occupation, apartheid, ethnic cleansing and outright genocide. Those who insist on using ‘neutral’ language in depicting the crisis in Palestine are harming the Palestinian people beyond their seemingly innocuous words. This morally non-committal, middle-ground language is now […]

American Intifada For Gaza: What Should We Expect?

American Intifada For Gaza: What Should We Expect?

The mass protests at dozens of US universities cannot be reduced to a stifling and misleading conversation about antisemitism. Thousands of American students across the country are not protesting, risking their own futures and very safety, because of some pathological hate for the Jewish people. They are doing so in a complete rejection of, and […]

Feeding War, Killing Peace: Why The US Vetoed ‘Palestine’?

Feeding War, Killing Peace: Why The US Vetoed ‘Palestine’?

The outcome of the Palestine vote and the American veto at the United Nations Security Council on April 18 was predictable.

NATO’s Never-ending War: The 75-Year-Old Bully is Faltering

NATO’s Never-ending War: The 75-Year-Old Bully is Faltering

The western discourse on the circumstances behind the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), 75 years ago, is hardly convincing. Yet, that over-simplified discourse must be examined in order for the current decline of the organization to be appreciated beyond the self-serving politics of NATO’s members. The history records page of the US […]

Cruelty of Language: Leaked NY Times Memo Reveals Moral Depravity of US Media

Cruelty of Language: Leaked NY Times Memo Reveals Moral Depravity of US Media

The New York Times coverage of the Israeli carnage in Gaza, like that of other mainstream US media, is a disgrace to journalism. This assertion should not surprise anyone. US media is driven neither by facts nor morality, but by agendas, calculating and power-hungry. The humanity of 120 thousand dead and wounded Palestinians because of […]

Israel’s Irremediable Defeat: On Israel’s Other Unwinnable War

Israel’s Irremediable Defeat: On Israel’s Other Unwinnable War

Historically, wars unite Israelis. Not anymore. Not that Israelis do not agree with Benjamin Netanyahu’s war; they simply do not believe that the prime minister is the man who could win this supposedly existential fight. But Netanyahu’s war remains unwinnable simply because liberation wars, often conducted through guerrilla warfare tactics, are far more complicated than […]

On kuffiyehs and Watermelon – Revealing the Meaning of Palestinian Symbols

On kuffiyehs and Watermelon – Revealing the Meaning of Palestinian Symbols

Those who admonish Palestinian Resistance, armed or otherwise, have little understanding of the psychological ramifications of resistance, such as a sense of collective empowerment, honor and hope. But resistance is not just a rifle, a rocket launcher. The latter are but one manifestation in resistance and, if not backed by strong popular support, they hardly […]
