 History to the defeated
 May say Alas but cannot help nor pardon. - W.H. Auden, “Spain” It is now trite to say that as long as colonialism has existed, so has resistance to it. Yet the history of colonialism and resistance is still incomplete. This is because—traditionally—historical accounts were written from primarily two points of view: that of the colonizer, and that of triumphant nationalist movements that replaced colonial power in one of the many waves of ...

Remembering Ali Shaath

[Ali Shaath. Image by Marwa Seoudi.]

In 1994, Ali Shaath and three of his colleagues, Sa’id al-Qidra, Mustafa Harara, and Majd al-Khalidi drove from Cairo to Palestine. It would be Ali’s first visit to the land that shaped him from a distance. It was a moment of hope and possibility. These were the moments Ali lived for.  The four men were the first to enter Gaza after the initial stages of the Jericho-Oslo agreements. At that time those words signaled possibility and change. Their goal was to make technology available in a simple but refined form.  He did not sleep that day, and for many days to come, overwhelmed by the sights and sounds he could previously only have imagined, he immediately ...

برافر لم يمر حتى إشعار آخر

[مصدر الصورة موقع

عمت الفرحة الخميس الماضي، 12 من ديسمبر 2013، صفوف الفلسطينيين عقب إعلان الحكومة الإسرائيلية تراجعها عن عرض مشروع قانون ”برافر- بيغن“ للتصويت عليه لقراءة ثانية في البرلمان الإسرائيلي. وكان مشروع القرار قد حصل على مصادقة أوليّة (قراءة أولى) في السادس والعشرين من يونيو/حزيران 2013.(1)   سيؤدي المشروع إلى تهجير أكثر من 40 ألف فلسطيني، من سكان النقب البدو عن حواي 35 قرية ”غير معترف بها“. إن اعتماد القرار يعني مصادرة أكثر من 800 ألف دونم من هذه الأراضي، بحيث يصبح أي اعتراض على هذا التهجير غير ”قانوني“. كما أنه يسلب سكان هذه القرى ”الاستقلالية“ المادية، حيث يستغل الكثير منهم المراعي لتربية المواشي ورعاية الأغنام إلخ. وسيؤدي التهجير كذلك إلى حصر الفلسطينيين ...

Where the Tigris Flows: Water Security in Post-War Iraq and Turkey

[Hasankeyf at Dusk. Image by Julia Harte, NG Newswatch All Rights Reserved, via Ottoman History Podcast.]

Media coverage of Iraq in recent years has been dominated by the horrifying images of the American occupation, its impacts, and its aftermath. Sometimes lost among the political turmoil are the stories of how daily life continues and persists and how it is affected by the issues of the day. What will be the legacy of the past decade in the eyes of the future? One issue that has gained attention from scholars of the Middle East in recent years is ecology. Historians have come to view the relationship between human society and the environment as a critical one for understandings of the past and as an issue of the utmost relevance in a time when the problems of pollution, ...
