مَن يطهِّر مَن عرقيًا؟: استيلاء إسرائيل على الرواية الفلسطينية

[النكبة - التطهير العرقي في فلسطين. المصدر: موقع ويكيميديا]

ادّعى رئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلي بنيامين نتنياهو مؤخرًا في فيديو نشره على صفحته على الفيسبوك أن المطالبة الفلسطينية بتفكيك المستوطنات الإسرائيلية غير القانونية في الأرض الفلسطينية المحتلة تمثِّل عملاً من أعمال "التطهير العرقي" ضد المستوطنين اليهود الإسرائيليين. 1 استُخدم مصطلح " التطهير العرقي" في السابق كوصف ألطف لحقيقة الحملة الصربية ضد شعب البوسنة، ولكنه سرعان ما صار يشمل الممارسات العنيفة المتطرفة، والقتل الجماعي، والتهجير القسري إبان الصراعات والحروب، كما استخدمه باحثون كُثر واستُخدم في الخطاب العام للإشارة إلى الممارسات الصهيونية ضد الشعب الفلسطيني إبان النكبة وفي الفترة التي سبقتها. وتشمل هذه الممارسات تدميرَ ما يزيد على 500 قرية فلسطينية، وطرد ما ...

[Illustration by Tanuja Ramani, The Indian Quarterly] I was invited recently, together with nine other Palestinian writers and poets, to New Delhi to participate in a colloquium about the Palestinian condition, especially the role of memory and imagination for those of us who are refugees living in exile. This is a perennial question, which I have spoken to in different ways in poetry and prose. One angle I have not touched on in any detail is my relationship with the country’s beautiful and varied landscape, which intrudes on all other landscapes as a benchmark or a spoiler. For a while now the landscape has been pressing itself into my consciousness through ...
