إسرائيل في القدس الشرقية: من الحسم الجغرافي إلى الحسم الديموغرافي

[ 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 ...

Sherene Seikaly, Men of Capital: Scarcity and Economy in Mandate Palestine. Stanford: Stanford University Press, 2015. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Sherene Seikaly (SS): When I started my dissertation research I was interested in looking at Palestinian consumer practices in Israel as a form of truncated citizenship and contained social mobility after 1948.

To move away from such a focus, I began exploring periodicals from the 1940s, when Palestine was under British rule. The figure of the consumer was ubiquitous, as were the institutions that ...

Each day after work I ride back to Bethlehem in a rickety public taxi van known in Palestine as a sirvis. On Tuesday, 10 November around 3:00 pm we reached “The Container,” an Israeli checkpoint that stands between the town of Abu Dis and the valley of Wadi Nar to find large steel gates blocking our way. Normally the checkpoint is open for vehicles to pass through, many of which soldiers will force to pull over for a security check. Often the young Palestinian men commuting home from university and work ...
