مَعرض الشِقَاق لبنجي بوياجيان

جانب من المعروضات. الصورة من أرشيف الكاتبة

مَعرض "الشِقَاق" لبنجي بوياجيان: زَخارِف تحتفي بالحرفةِ والأخطاء وبصمات تركها عابرون في تاريخِ المكان يقال بأن الأخطاء تُقترف عمدا في السجاد العجمي، لأن النسّاجين يؤمنون بأن "الكمال لله وحده"، وأن الأخطاء بمثابة شقوق تدخل منها الروح لحماية القطعة. كثيراً ما تأملت الأشكال والزخارف التي تزين السجاد باحثة عن أخطاء تؤكد لي إذا ما كانت القطعة يدوية صنعتها أياد بشرية، أم آلية الصنع مؤتمتة لا أخطاء فيها ولا تمتلك روحاً لحظة اكتشاف الأخطاء دائما تسرني وكأنني أجد كنزا مخبأً بين الزخارف الملونة. لذا أنظر مليا إلى البلاط المزخرف الذي رصف أرضية الغرفة ذات الواجهات الزجاجية الكبيرة التي جلسنا أنا وبنجي بوياجيان نتحدث فيها عن معرضه "الشِقَاق" ...

New Texts Out Now: Mazen Masri, The Dynamics of Exclusionary Constitutionalism: Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State

Mazen Masri, The Dynamics of Exclusionary Constitutionalism: Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State. London: Bloomsbury Professional, 2017. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Mazen Masri (MM): The question of the book–Israel’s definition as a Jewish and democratic state–is one that I have been preoccupied with since I took the constitutional law course in the first year of my law degree at the Hebrew University. I was struck by how this contradiction is explained away using liberal language. The arguments and the explanations presented a picture that did not match the lived experience of many people, myself included. My interest in this question became ...

Bombast of Mass Slayer

[Art by Serwan Baran]

My name is Mass Slayer. I live in bombs and bullets, in cannons and rockets. I live in the nucleus of you. I could be an army, a lone wolf, or a terrorist band. I need not toil, pay individual visits, like the everyday Reaper. I stun as many as I can, in one go, I stun them on a street, in a bar, in a temple, in the battlefield, in the comfort of their homes-- and you could be there. Nothing pleases me though more than being in the news, and nothing pleases the news more than my exploits. What a joy to star in a movie, to be shared and streamed, flashing my motto, Viva La Muerte! Drench me with tears and condemnations, I thrive on mass ...

التقية والتوقيت في أداء حماس غير المقروء

التقية في اللغة يراد بها الحذر ، وأهل السنة اعتبروها رخصة عند الضرورة ، وهل من ضرورة/أزمة، أكثر من هذه المرحلة التي تمر بها حركة حماس وحكمها لقطاع غزة؟ الوثيقة التقية: شخصياً لم أر في الوثيقة أكثر من بيان صحفي أو إعلان مبادئ، لا يجُب (يلغي) الميثاق التأسيسي للحركة، بل مبادئ أبقت الباب موارباً على كل التفسيرات حفاظاً على "المتطرفين والمعتدلين" داخل الحركة في آن – تقية-. الوثيقة كما يقول خالد الحروب هي "رسملة وشرعنة كل تصريحات قيادات حركة حماس"، فمثلاً الإعتراف بدولة على حدود 67 جاء على لسان الشهيد أحمد ياسين قبل أبو مرزوق وخالد مشعل وغيرهم، وها هو الإعتراف يرسمل في وثيقة، تقول الشيء وضده! تبدو "التقية" نهجاً أكثر وضوحاً اتبعته حماس ...

When I Failed to Say Farewell to You…

[A Painting by the Iraqi Artist Ahmad al-Soudani]

It was winter and my Berlin nights were crowded with people yet full of loneliness. I don’t know what year it was. Maybe 2008. I was working as a journalist and producer for a German television station in Berlin.  My schedule used to vary from week to week. I would sometimes start early in the morning and other times late in the evening. I used to love the night shifts, they were more quiet and I had an excuse for not being able to sleep.  That night I decided, although it was not my habit, to go early to bed. It was like those  silly “new year resolutions” most of us never abide by, but still make every year. Maybe it’s the hope. And as they say in ...

تقرير: خمسون عاماً على احتلال القدس الشرقية: سياسات القضم والإبعاد والتهويد تتواصل

بعد مرور 50 عاماً على الاحتلال الإسرائيلي لمدينة القدس الشرقية، باتت مساحتها تتقلص أكثر فأكثر لحساب المستعمرات، إلاّ إن عدد الفلسطينيين يزداد على نحو يؤشر إلى فشل سياسات التهويد الإسرائيلية. مع بداية الاحتلال الإسرائيلي للقدس الشرقية في سنة 1967 كان عدد سكانها بشطرَيها الشرقي والغربي 266,300 نسمة تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 68,600 منهم (أي 26%)، واليهود 197,700 تقريباً (أي 74%)؛ لكن مع نهاية سنة 2014 بلغ عدد سكان المدينة بشطرَيها 849,800 تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 351,900 تقريباً منهم (أي 37%)، واليهود ...

The United Nations and Palestine: Biased?

It is common currency to accuse the United Nations (UN) of harboring an inveterate anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian bias. Israel, so the claim goes, is consistently held to a higher standard than other states that manage to escape the world body’s scrutiny despite their abysmal records, and is consistently condemned by the UN for engaging in a legitimate struggle for survival against the Palestinians and other Arabs. To an even greater extent than her predecessors, the current US permanent representative ...

الهَدم والبناء الاستعماري في الجولان

افتتاحية في السابع من أيلول من العام المُنصرم، داهمت سلطات الاحتلال الإسرائيلي قرية مجدل شمس السورية، ونفّذت أمام أعين عشرات السكّان، مُستخدمةً جرّافاتها الثقيلة، أمر هدم منزل السيّد بسام جميل إبراهيم وزوجته داليا بدعوى تشييده دون ترخيص بناء، معلنةً بذلك نيّتها عن هدم عشرات المنازل التابعة للسكان السوريين في قرى الجولان المُحتل1. بالرغم من أن عملية الهدم هذه قد تبدو سابقة في قرى الجولان المُحتل في العقد الأخير، إلّا أنها في الواقع لا تشكّل حدثًا مفصليًا وفريدًا من نوعه، بل حتى بعيدة كل البعد عن ذلك. ...

الاستقطاب عند حماس: بين المدرسة والمسجد

 مع توقيع اتفاق القاهرة "اتفاق غزة أريحا" في أيار/ مايو 1994، بين قوة الاحتلال الإسرائيلي ومنظمة التحرير الفلسطينية، وبدء عودة السلطة الفلسطينية إلى قطاع غزة المحتل بعد أسابيع من الاتفاق، بدأ حزب السلطة "حركة فتح " بفرض نفوذه على معظم الحيز العام الفلسطيني. وكان الهم الأول للقيادة الفلسطينية "الجديدة" بزعامة الراحل ياسر عرفات هو إعادة إنشاء وتشكيل الحقل السياسي الفلسطيني والهيمنة عليه، بعد تراجع تأثير قيادة المنظمة في الشارع الفلسطيني لصالح حركة المقاومة الإسلامية ...

Familiar Ruptures and Opportunities, 1967 and 2017

The 1967 war was a fundamental, damning failure for the Arab world. In the course of six short days, Israel expanded its jurisdiction across the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian Golan Heights, as well as the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. For nineteen years, Arab states had regarded Israel as a foreign colony established by the collusion of imperial powers. Amid the anti-colonial fervor that animated much of the global south at the time, these states refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish ...

Challenging Knowledge Production in the British Academy: Who Can Speak on Palestine?

Earlier this month, a British university hosted a conference on the fiftieth anniversary of the Israeli occupation, one of many being organized this year. The conference sought to reflect on fifty years of the “longest standing military occupation in the world,” focusing on “its implications not just for Palestinians, but also for Israelis.” Although academic, the conference promised to include non-academic representation including activists.    In the lead up to the conference, the ...

نقل السفارة الأميركية إلى القدس قنبلة موقوتة

ربما أرجأ الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب، قليلاً، نقل السفارة الأميركية من تل أبيب إلى القدس، غير أن هذا الموضوع يبقى قنبلة موقوتة في العلاقة الفلسطينية ـ الأميركية الهشة أصلاً. تنبه الفلسطينيون إلى مخاطر هذه القضية مع الفوز المفاجيء لترامب في الإنتخابات الرئاسية فسارعوا لمحاولة التواصل مع طاقمه ولكن من دون جدوى. في شهر كانون الأول / ديسمبر 2016، قيل لوفد فلسطيني رفيع برئاسة أمين سر اللجنة التنفيذية لمنظمة التحرير الفلسطينية صائب عريقات ورئيس جهاز المخابرات العامة اللواء ماجد فرج، كان في زيارة إلى ...

أرض السفارة الأميركية في القدس: المُلكية العربية والمأزق الأميركي

عادت مسألة نقل السفارة الأميركية إلى القدس المحتلة إلى صدارة الحدث الفلسطيني، بعدما أعلن الرئيس الأميركي المنتخب دونالد ترامب، خلال الحملة الانتخابية، نيّته نقل السفارة الأميركية من تل أبيب إلى القدس، باعتبارها "العاصمة الموحدة لإسرائيل"، وهو أمر أكّده مستشاروه بعد إعلان فوزه في الانتخابات وتشكيل طاقم إدارته. وهذا التحول في السياسة الأميركية إزاء مسألة نقل السفارة إلى القدس ـ والتي إن كان الحديث قد جرى عنها في فترات سابقة وتداولها الكونغرس الأميركي غير مرة، إلاّ إن أي رئيس أميركي سابق لم ...
