Can Palestinian Men be Victims? Gendering Israel's War on Gaza

[In Gaza There's A Boy. Artwork by Mazen Kerbaj]

Every morning we wake up to an updated butcher’s bill: one hundred, two hundred, four hundred, six hundred Palestinians killed by Israel’s war apparatus. These numbers gloss over many details: the majority of Gazans, one of the most populated and impoverished areas in the world, are refugees from other parts of historic Palestine. It is under a brutal siege, and there is nowhere to hide from Israel’s onslaught.  Before this “war” Gaza was a form of quarantine, a population held captive and colonized by Israel’s ability to break international law with impunity. They are population in a relationship of dependency—for food, for water, medicine, even for ...

In a recent Opinion piece published on Electronic Intifada, Israeli historian Ilan Pappe defines the Israeli policy towards the Gaza Strip as an "incremental genocide." He writes “Israel’s present assault on Gaza, alas, indicates that this policy continues unabated. The term is important since it appropriately locates Israel’s barbaric action—then and now—within a wider historical context.” Malihe Razazan spoke with Professor Ilan Pappe about ways in which we need to examine the ongoing Israeli military aggression on Gaza within a wider historical background. The interview was conducted on 15 July, prior to the Israeli ground incursion into Gaza.

Reporting Egypt: From Passion to Purpose

[Photo courtesy of Ahmad Hammoud via Flickr.]

Throughout the last year, my main challenge as a journalist has been to get myself to take the news seriously. But at times, when the absurdities became too tragic to laugh at, the bigger challenge was to deal with injustice on a daily basis, especially as it kept hitting increasingly close to home. As journalists, we have been constantly alternating throughout the last year between being at the heart of laughable charades and unspeakable tragedies, and it has taken its toll. It is not as easy to care about the details of the story when it has become crystal clear that the events are driven by the will of the powerful few and have little to do with any law or ...
