على من يستند حُكم الإخوان؟

[الرئيس المصري محمد مرسي]

حظى الرئيس محمد مرسي بتأييد ١٣ مليون و٢٠٠ ألف مصري في جولة الانتخابات الرئاسية الثانية، بعد أن كان قد حصل على أصوات ٥ ملايين و٧٦٤ ألفاً، كان هو خيارهم الأول في الجولة الأولى. يميل البعض لتفسير توسع مؤيديه، الذي سمح له بالوصول للحكم وهو القيادي الإخواني بعد ٨٠ سنة من تأسيس الجماعة، على أسس متعددة مشروعة للغاية، على رأسها الموقف من الثورة (من يسمونهم بثوار الليمون الذين لم يكن خيارهم الأول لكنهم اعتبروا فوز أحمد شفيق هزيمة)، أو الاصطفاف وراء القوى السياسية التي تصف نفسها بأنها إسلامية في مواجهة غيرها. وبعد ما يقرب من ٦ أشهر على إعلان فوزه رسمياً، تظل هذه التقسيمات هي السائدة في النظر لشعبية الرئيس وحكم جماعته. ويستخدم أنصاره ومعارضوه نفس التقسيمات للتدليل ...

Translation of Statements Made by Minister of Electricity Gebran Bassile and MP Nayla Tueni

[Minister Bassile and MP Tueni send telepathic messages to each other about important stuff]

There are over 170,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon. These men, women, and children have come to Lebanon fleeing the ongoing and deteriorating violence in Syria. In addition, thousands of Palestinians have fled their refugee camps in Syria to brother camps in Lebanon. These people have no other place to go. Since arriving in Lebanon, Syrian and Palestinian refugees (it is worth noting that Palestinian refugees in Syria and in Lebanon have suffered multiple removals and forced relocations) have been subjected to beatings, economic exploitation, and social discrimination. The treatment of Syrian refugees in Lebanon today stands in sharp contrast to the refugee crisis ...

[Cover of Orit Bashkin,

Orit Bashkin, New Babylonians: A History of Jews in Modern Iraq. Palo Alto: Stanford University Press, 2012. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Orit Bashkin (OB): I became interested in the topic as a teenager, reading Hebrew novels written by Iraqi Jews who described their experiences in Iraq. When I was working on my first book I met Iraqi Jews who spoke to me about their experiences in Iraq, and Iraqi Muslims and Christians who spoke about their Jewish friends and neighbors. What amazed me about some of these conversations was the personal memories of Iraqi Jews now living in Israel; their Iraqi-patriotic sentiments and their longing for Iraq did not ...

المواطنة و"دولة فلسطين" الجديدة

في محاولته الثانية للحصول على اعتراف الأمم المتحدة بفلسطين كدولة، طلب رئيس السلطة الوطنية الفلسطينية، محمود عباس، في التاسع والعشرين من تشرين الثاني (نوفمبر)، 2012 من الجمعية العامة أن تقبل طلب منح فلسطين صفة دولة مراقب غير عضو، وقد وافقت أغلبية ساحقة من الدول الأعضاء بلغ عددها 138 دولة على الطلب. في الوقت الحاضر، فإن تأثير هذا التصويت يعد رمزياً إلى حد كبير، ولكنه يعني بالفعل أن "فلسطين" هي الأراضي الفلسطينية التي احتلتها إسرائيل عام 1967. والآن، وعوضاً عن معنى الشعب الذي تبرزه كلمة "فلسطين"، فإن هذه الكلمة تشير إلى دولة رسمية ضمن إطار القانون الدولي. إن مرحلة ما بعد هذا التصويت ستبين أنه بالنسبة للعديد من الدول التي حصلت على الاعتراف باستقلالها، فإن ...

All Armies - the Syrian Regime, the FSA and Islamist - Are Thieves

During the 1990s, my small village which felt like it was cut off from half the known world experienced a strange new phenomenon. A big mosque was built by donors from the city of Hama, the cost of which at the time outstripped the earnings of the residents of the whole village combined. The thing I remember most about the mosque was the huge quantities of rice and olive oil deposited in front of the mosque to distribute among the regular visitors. We began to see a few of the men from the village let ...

He told me to get off at the last kiosk on the highway that connects East with West Cairo. After the driver dropped me off, there was no one to be seen in the area. I walked down the concrete stairs by the side of the road. The stairs led me into the pit of this neighborhood named after a village that never was. There was Mahmoud, sitting in a coffee shop only meters away. He told me he had stood by the road for some time waiting for me but then had gotten cold and came down below. We walked together to ...
