درويش خارج النص

[عند حاجز قلنديا. الصورة من الكاتبين]

خلال زيارته الأولى إلى فلسطين، وعند سؤاله عمّا يريد أن يرى في رام الله، أجاب ضيفنا الأسترالي المتخصص في الأدب ما بعد الاستعماري، من دون أي تردّد: قبرَي الرئيس ياسر عرفات ومحمود درويش. ليست الإجابة صدفية، فالأول يُقدّم على أنه أب الوطنية الفلسطينية والثاني شاعرها. هذا التزاوج بين السياسي والشعري في شخصيتي عرفات ودرويش تاريخياً جعلت البعض يتندر بوصف درويش "الشاعر العام" مقابل تعبير "القائد العام" الذي ارتبط بالراحل عرفات. هذا الارتباط الذي طالما جعل درويش صوت الثورة الشعري، أصبح بعد موته أحد عناصر بناء الشرعية الرمزية لمشروع بناء الدولة الذي بدأ يتمأسس بعد أوسلو ليصل ذروته مع وصول محمود عباس إلى رئاسة السلطة الفلسطينية، وتقدمه مؤخراً بعدد من الطلبات ...

Evolution and Debates about the Concept of Terrorism

[Israeli bombing of PLO headquarters in Tunis, 1985. Image by Israeli Air Force.]

The term “terrorism” has become a permanent fixture in US political vocabulary. However, as recently as the late 1970s this terminology was virtually absent from the rhetorical arsenal of US presidents. Today, people invoke the concept in ways that suggest its meaning is self-evident and consensual. In fact what is and is not described as “terroristic” in the American context is the result of a relatively recent and highly political process of meaning-making. In this process, specific voices and viewpoints have been allowed to shape and inform the totality of the discussion, while others were simply silenced.  The older debates were rekindled recently with the ...

Who Is Afraid of the International Criminal Court?

[The International Criminal Court in The Hague (ICC/CPI), Netherlands. Image by Vincent van Zeijst.]

Can the International Criminal Court (ICC) deliver the justice Palestinians have struggled to realize for well over a century? The pursuit of accountability at the ICC is one venue of this struggle. But any sustainable vision of Palestinian liberation must account for the confines of the courtroom in particular international law more broadly. As should be clear to all observers of international law, the odds are stacked against Palestinians in that courtroom. The challenge ahead is to innovate not simply litigation strategies but to put them in conversation with radical popular mobilization. The move to the ICC does offer Palestinians two significant opportunities. ...

Aloha Aina: Notes From The Struggle in Hawai’i

[Image by Ed Greevey. Photo of attendees and participants at Closing Event 1 December 2014.]

In late November 2014, I had the honor of visiting the occupied Kingdom of Hawai’i as an invited guest. I prepared for the trip with ample readings J. Kehaulani Kaunaui both wrote and shared with me, along with book recommendations that my hostess, Cynthia Franklin, passed along. (It merits writing a separate article just about Cindy and her phenomenal skills as an organizer and her generosity as a friend. She is fire.) I thought my greatest challenge would be unraveling the competing independence paradigms, namely de-occupation and de-colonization, and understanding their relationship to indigenous nationhood. While we indeed delved into these issues, they were quickly ...

Sexual Violence, Women’s Bodies, and Israeli Settler Colonialism

[

They not only invaded our home, took over our space, and evicted us—they even arrested me and took me to the Maskubya—the police station.  I was put in room number four, alone, for a long time.  Then, a big and tall man, a police officer, entered the interrogation room.  I was alone, and started shivering from fear as he closed the door, started moving things around in the room and examining me from head to toe.  I was terrorized, and my heart was beating so fast.  His eyes penetrated my body, as he was opening the drawers looking for something.  Then, he left the room and came back five minutes later holding a box.  He pulled out a ...

Why Anthropologists Should Boycott Israeli Academic Institutions

On Israel and Palestine: Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israeli Institutions In its best moments, anthropology is a discipline that is dedicated to social justice. It is a discipline that has historically stood up for marginalized peoples around the world. Anthropologists have not always lived up to these best ideals, of course, and the history of our discipline includes cooperation with colonial and imperial regimes and with war machines. Yet there have always been anthropologists who have criticized these relationships. And as a collectivity, we have generally looked back upon these moments of complicity with regret. The AAA has passed resolutions condemning ...

عمر» لهاني أبو أسعد: قوة السينما من دون تابوهات»

يُشكّل «عمر» (2013)، الفيلم الجديد للمخرج الفلسطيني هاني أبو أسعد، لحظة سينمائية متفرّدة بحدّ ذاتها في المشهد السينمائي الفلسطيني العربي. لحظة متفرّدة، لأنه يُساهم في تفعيل آلية اشتغال سينمائيّ فلسطيني متحرّر من سطوة التقاليد الصارمة في مقاربة الموضوع الفلسطيني، ومتفلّت من خطابية تُسيء إلى «القضية» وناسها أكثر مما تفيدهم. لحظة متفرّدة، لأنه يغوص في تمزّقات الفرد، ويتيح لهذا الفرد إمكانية قول انفعال، والتعبير عن موقف أو حالة، كجزء من بلد ومجتمع وناس، لكن أولاً وأساساً كفرد له استقلاليته التامة وسط هذه ...

Israel’s “Jewish State” Bill: Does it Really Change Anything?

The debate taking place in Israel on the bill for a Basic Law titled Basic Law: Israel the Nation State of the Jewish People has seen ebbs and flows since the idea was first floated in 2011. The bill, which aims to emphasize Israel’s Jewish character, is revived periodically and different Members of Knesset proposed different possible versions for it. If approved by the Knesset it would become part of Israel’s partial constitution- a number of Basic Laws that the Supreme Court has declared to have ...

ما هي الخطوة التالية للسلطة الفلسطينية بعد مجلس الأمن ؟

أبدأ بالتساؤل التالي: لماذا لم تنتظر السلطة الفلسطينية انقضاء العام ٢٠١٤، وتغيير عدد من الأعضاء غير الدائمين في مجلس الأمن، وتوفير حظوظ أفضل للحصول على الأصوات التسعة الضرورية لإقرار المشروع المقدم، ولماذا دفعت بمشروع الاقتراح الأردني/الفلسطيني للتصويت، علماً أن حظوظه لم تكن مؤكدة، وأن الولايات المتحدة كانت تبذل جهدها لإقناع ما أمكنها من الدول، بما فيه نيجيريا بالامتناع، على الأقل، وكما تم؟ ربما توجد إجابة على هذا التساؤل ولكنني لم أجدها فيما أعلن حتى الآن من قبل أكثر من ناطق رسمي فلسطيني. ولكني أشير ...

وما الداعي لمعارضة "قانون القوميّة"؟

إسرائيل أكثر عنصريةً من مجموع قوانينها، ومما تنصّ عليه هذه القوانين وأنظمة تطبيقها وممارستها. بل إن صيغ القوانين القائمة فيها تخفيف شكلي للجوهر وتبرير للسياسات المنبثقة عنه، فالقوانين فيها تجميل منمّق بمفردات ليبرالية للجوهر. وقانون القومية يكشف الجوهر بشكل جليّ. إن الحجّة المركزية التي أنطلق منها في ادعائي المذكور، هي أن القوانين كلّها، كما الدولة الرسمية، تتعامل مع أنها في حلِّ من سبق قيامها والإعلان الرسمي عنها ووثيقة استقلالها، وهي وثيقة إعلان المستعمر الصهيوني عن إنجاز مشروعه، ولا توجد وثيقة مرجعية ...
