جدلية في عامها الرابع

 دخلت “جدلية” عامها الرابع في أيلول\سبتمبر، وكنا قد وعدنا في مثل هذا الوقت من العام الماضي أنه سيكون أمامنا عام مليء بالعمل، لكننا كنا مخطئين نوعاً ما، فقد كان عاماً جنونياً بالفعل. استهْلَكنا، على المستوى الداخلي، بناءُ صفحات وفرق ...

Infographic: Born at Qalandia Checkpoint

[Crop of infographic below. Image by Visualizing Palestine.]

"'Born at Qalandia Checkpoint' focuses on the impact of Israeli movement restrictions on the everyday lives of Palestinians. The phenomenon of Palestinian women forced to give birth at military checkpoints peaked during the Second Intifada (2000-05). Since then, Palestinian women in remote areas have increasingly resorted to coping strategies, such as relocation in the weeks prior to delivery or giving birth at home.  Rather than challenge Israel’s military occupation and its associated checkpoints to address these conditions, the United Nations and other agencies have opted for a 'humanitarian' response in choosing to support the training of midwives. While ...

Mali in Focus, Part One: The Jihadist Offensive Revisited

[A public transport minibus is stopped by Malian soldiers at a checkpoint at the entrance to Markala, approximately forty km outside Segou on the road to Diabaly, in central Mali, Monday, 14 January 2013. Despite intensive aerial bombardments by French warplanes, Islamist insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Monday and got much closer to the capital, French and Malian authorities said. In the latest setback, the al-Qaida-linked extremists overran the garrison village of Diabaly in central Mali, France's defense minister said in Paris. Image from AP Photo/Harouna Traore.]

[This article is the first of a three-part series featuring different perspectives on the recent developments in Mali.] Although the jihadists in northern Mali share the same radical Islamist substrate, we were expecting to see Iyad Ag Ghaly’s Ansar Eddine (AD) movement cloak itself in a more moderate attitude in return for having obtained a respectable status in the Azawad conflict. This was the wish expressed by several international mediators—namely Algeria and Burkina Faso—given the different meetings held in Algiers and Ouagadougou. But some visible signs demonstrate an accord among the different jihadist groups that is too broad to avoid a collision with the ...

Raped, Without Justice, and Without Hope

[Nasma Naqash cracks a faint smile during her video testimony with Febrayer. Image taken from screenshot of Youtube video.]

Last year, Moroccan civil society was highly mobilized around the case of Amina Filali—the young Moroccan girl who committed suicide after having been forced to marry her rapist. Ten months later, article 475—the article that absolves a rapist of his crimes if he marries his victim—remains in place, despite the fact that calls for its removal were a central part of the mobilizations. Today, the tragic story of another Moroccan girl—who in 2010 was raped by a stranger during her commute to Marrakech—is now dominating headlines. Forced into domestic labor at the age of fourteen, a field of work Human Rights Watch rightly labeled “Lonely Servitude,” Nasma Naqash’s work ...

US Department of Homeland Security's Media Monitoring Manual

[Screenshot from DHS manual linked to below]

The following link directs you to portions of the US Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) 2011 Media Monitoring Desktop Reference. It was made available through the efforts of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent law suit to obtain the documents. The manual identifies many of the problematic monitoring practices of DHS and contains a (broad) list of (extremely vague) key words DHS uses to monitor the internet (inlcuding search engines and social media communications). Unclear from the released documents is how exactly DHS is able to access the data from search engines and social media ...

سراويل الكويز برعاية الإخوان

فى الأسبوع الماضي زار وفد مصري رسمي واشنطن للتفاوض مع إسرائيل والولايات المتحدة على توسيع إتفاق الكويز وتقليل نسبة المكون الإسرائيلى فى صادراته المصرية لأمريكا. في نفس الوقت تقريباً، كان نشطاء فلسطينيون يضعون اللمسات الأخيرة لخطة إنشاء أول قرية فلسطينية على أراضٍ خصصتها إسرائيل اغتصاباً للمستوطنات، قبل أن يقيموها بالفعل فجر الجمعة الماضي تحت اسم «باب الشمس»، مطلقين سبيلاً جديداً فريداً للمقاومة في زمن صعب. خبر اجتماعات الكويز، الذي انفرد به الزميل محمد المنشاوى مدير مكتب الشروق فى العاصمة الأمريكية، ليس مفاجأة في الحقيقة. فقد مهدت له زيارة أمريكية للقاهرة فى سبتمبر، وكانت الإتفاقية بنداً رئيسياً على جدول أعمال حكومة هشام قنديل، منذ أن عينها الرئيس مرسي. وفي التاسع من ...

Ramallah’s Bubbles

Recently there has been a proliferation of talk about Ramallah’s “bubble.” Based on the seeming contradiction between the quality of life there versus elsewhere in the occupied West Bank, popular accounts are rife with descriptions of bubbles emerging and bursting.  The bubble language is pervasive but it is not coherent. Some argue that the bubble is economic, poised to pop and thereby destroy Ramallah’s boomtown economy. Others contend that the bubble is an artificial force that encourages ...

قراءة هادئة في نداء 13 يناير

منذ شهور انطلقت على الفايسبوك نداءات تدعو للتظاهر في المدن والقرى المغربية، بل وفي العواصم الأجنبية من أجل المطالبة بالتغيير الجذري للنظام السياسي في المغرب. فبعدما كانت حركة 20 فبراير تطالب بالملكية البرلمانية كحل للأزمة التي تمر فيها البلاد وفاء لشعار اليسار القديم تحت حكم الراحل الحسن الثاني، تحول المطلب اليوم، في ظل حكم ابنه محمد السادس، إلى "إسقاط النظام" في تحول نوعي وغير مسبوق. وقد شق هذا الشعار طريقه إلى الشارع المغربي حيث دُوِّن على جدران بعض الأحياء الشعبية، كما أورد أكثر من مصدر ...

قصيدة برتولد بريشت كجزء من بيوغرافيا الطموح

قبل خمسة أعوام تقريباً، أُجريت دراسة بتكليف من مجلة بوشر Bücher الألمانية حول أثر الشاعر والمسرحي برتولد بريشت في الجيل الألماني الجديد. 42 بالمئة ممن شملتهم الأسئلة، اعترفوا أنهم لم يسبق لهم قراءة أو مشاهدة أي عمل من أعماله. أظهرت الدراسة نفسها أن غالبية هؤلاء كذلك، لا يعرفون أن بريشت، هو مؤسس المسرح العالمي الشهير "برلينر أنسامبل"، كما لا يملكون أدنى فكرة حول نظريات بريشت ودوره في تطوير المسرح الحديث، ونقله من الأفق الدرامي إلى الملحمي.  إنها ليست مسألة الدولة الألمانية، بل مسألة دور ...
