دونالد ترامب والصراع في فلسطين

إزاء تصريحات الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترمب حول الحل المنشود للصراع، خاصة خلال زيارة رئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلي الأخيرة للولايات المتحدة، قامت جوقة كبيرة في معظم وسائل الإعلام الرئيسية في الولايات المتحدة وفي عدد من الدول في أوروبا أيضا، بانتقاد الرئيس ترمب وشجب تصريحاته نظرا لأنهم فهموا منها أنه تخلى عن حل الدولتين. وأشار الكثير من المعلقين والكتاب أن ما تخلى عنه هو موقف الولايات المتحدة ومعظم الدول الأوروبية والعربية أيضا خلال العقود الثلاث الأخيرة على الأقل، وأن هذه سابقة خطيرة وموقف غير مسؤول حول الحل للصراع في فلسطين. وقد يبدوا لأول وهلة أن هذا النقد والشجب والإستنكار ليس غريبا ومستهجنا ذلك أن الرئيس ترمب لم يؤكد على الموقف التقليدي للولايات المتحدة حول الحل المنشود، ...

Jadaliyya Co-Editor Noura Erakat Discusses Israeli Land Grab Law with BBC World

On 6 February 2017, the Israeli Knesset passed the Validation Bill which retroactively sanctions the status of nearly 4,000 illegal structures built on private Palestinian land. While all settlements contravene international humanitarian law’s prohibition on the transfer of civilians into occupied territory, these cases are distinct because the structures are not built on what Israel has declared “State Lands.” Instead, they are built on private Palestinian lands where the proof of ownership is not in controversy. The Validation Law is an unprecedented new step in Israel’s incremental and steady encroachment of Palestinian lands. Jadaliyya Co-Editor, Noura Erakat, joins ...

The Modern Language Association and the 2017 Vote on the Academic Boycott of Israel

[Still image from

Ten years ago no academic association in the United States, with the possible exception of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), would have been motivated to make public statements critical of Israel. Over the last decade, many members of associations across the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences have taken a stand in support of Palestinians. One way in which this stand has taken form is through resolutions in support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The heated debate and the vote on academic boycott at the 2017 convention of the Modern Language Association (MLA) is only the most recent indication that solidarity with ...

BDS Is Professional Solidarity

[Logo of MLA Members for Justice in Palestine]

[This article first appeared on the author’s blog. The Modern Language Association (MLA) will be voting on a resolution calling for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions at its upcoming convention, to be held 5-8 January 2017 in Philadelphia.] I endorse BDS as a strategy because it is one of the very few ways to use our position as educators to act in solidarity with Palestinian colleagues who have lived under military occupation for fifty years. Fifty years. That’s how long it’s been since Israel conquered those territories of mandate Palestine it had failed to seize in 1948. Ever since, Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza have lived under the grueling ...

Jadaliyya Co-Editor Noura Erakat Tells MSNBC's Chris Hayes, We're Not Headed to an Apartheid Reality "We Have Been There"

On 28 December 2016, US Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a comprehensive speech about the United States’ vision for a two state solution. Kerry’s address was remarkable for its candor: he insisted that settlements did not increase Israel’s security; he referred to Israel’s establishment as the Palestinian nakba; said that Israel must choose between either Jewish or democratic, but could not be both; among other remarks. The speech was also typical in its overemphasis on Palestinian violence as a root cause of the conflict as opposed to a symptom of setter-colonialism. In this interview, Jadaliyya Co-Editor Noura Erakat joins MSNBC's "All In With Chris ...

مؤسسات القدس الفلسطينية: حصار تمويلي وعجز السلطة والمنظمة

وصلت المؤسسات الفلسطينية في القدس، منذ توقيع اتفاق أوسلو وبسببه، إلى مرحلة أصبحت فيها المؤسسات التي تمكنت من الصمود، أمام واقع لا يمكن مواجهته: إسرائيل تضع ثقلها كله خلف سياسة تهويد المدينة وإبعاد سكانها الفلسطينيين، بينما السلطة الفلسطينية ومنظمة التحرير لا تبذلان الجهد الكافي لمواجهة سياسات الحكومات الإسرائيلية. تأخذك الأزقة داخل السور القديم، من حي إلى آخر، وتدفعك الأرضية المرصوفة إلى التساؤل دوماً: من أين يأتي المقدسيون بجميع الحجارة التي يضربون بها جنود الاحتلال المدججين والمستوطنين المتطرفين ...

The MLA and BDS—or, Comedy and Resistance

This weekend, the Modern Language Association's (MLA) Delegate Assembly voted against a detailed, closely-argued, and voluminously documented resolution to support the boycott of Israeli academic institutions (79 for, 113 against). A few minutes later, the same body proceeded to pass a brief, four-paragraph anti-boycott resolution (101 for, 93 against), which did little more than assert that “the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel contradicts the MLA’s purpose to promote ...
