[ غرافيتي/ فلسطين المحتلة. تصوير ابتسام عازم.]

حسمت إسرائيل سيطرتها الجغرافية على القدس الشرقية، وهي تتجه الآن شيئاً فشيئاً إلى حسم سيطرتها الديموغرافية في المدينة لمصلحة أغلبية يهودية فيها. فبحسب تقديرات رسمية إسرائيلية فإن ما يزيد على 320,000 فلسطيني في القدس الشرقية باتوا يشكلون 39% من عدد سكان القدس بشطرَيها الشرقي والغربي؛ ووسط مخاوف إسرائيلية من أن يقود النمو السكاني الفلسطيني هذه النسبة إلى مستويات أكبر في الأعوام المقبلة، فإن إسرائيل تعمل على خفض هذه النسبة، وبشكل كبير. وقد كشفت التطورات الأخيرة في مدينة القدس معالم الخطط الإسرائيلية لتحقيق هذه الغاية، والمتمثلة أساساً في سلخ أحياء فلسطينية كاملة عمّا يسمى حدود البلدية الإسرائيلية. فطبقاً للمخطط الإسرائيلي، فإن البداية ستكون بسحب الهويات من نحو ...

Speed Sisters (2015) directed by Amber Fares

Speed Sisters, directed by Amber Fares. Palestine, 2015 “If only you’d resist the occupation with something other than sports and fashion,” complained a YouTube user in the comments section of a video about the Speed Sisters—an all-female Palestinian race-car driving team in the West Bank, and the first of its kind in the Middle East. The comment is mentioned in the documentary Speed Sisters, by filmmaker Amber Fares.

Howard Page, a director at what was then Exxon, was once asked, “What would have happened if Iraq production had also surged during the 1960’s,” like that of Saudi Arabia and Iran. He responded, “I admit we would have been in one tough problem.” The company was pumping fast from the latter countries, as well as Libya. “Can you swallow this amount of oil?” the questioner continued. “With Iraq down...But if Iraq had come on,” he said, “it would have been that much harder.” How to make sense of this vignette?

العاصمة

  ـ ما هي عاصمة الكونغو الديمقراطية؟ ـ أنتويرب. في هذه المدينةِ التي تتغذى على الألماس. تنمو الأسلاكُ الشائكةُ في قصائدِ الشعراء. تموتُ المواعيدُ في الرزنامة. تتوقفُ يديْ عن لمسِ شفتيكِ. يتوقفُ رجالُ الشرطةِ عن الضحكِ. تتوقفُ سيارةُ التكسي التي قُتل سائِقُها برصاصةِ قناصٍ في دمشقَ أمامَ المحطةِ المركزيةِ في أنتويرب.  يتوقفُ الإرهابُ في البلاي ستيشن. وأنا أتأبطُ نفسي وأتوقفُ عن التوقفِ. أفكرُ في المسافةِ بين شفتيَّ وجلدكِ. كأنَّني لم أُولدْ في مخيم ...

Racism in the Defense of a Racist State: Some Reflections on BDS at the Modern Language Association
