Press Release: Institute of Women's Studies Urgent Call

[The following press release was issued by Birzeit University Institute of Women's Studies on 31 July 2014.] As we write this statement, twenty-five days after the brutal incursion on Gaza, over a thousand and four hundred of innocent civilian women, men, and children have been butchered by Israel’s war machine and much more are threatened to be killed. The call for raping Palestinian women by the so-called “Bar-Illan University Arabic Literature Professor” teaches us, once again, that Israeli “scholars” and “academic institutions” are an organic and integral part of the Zionist colonial project. Also, the parliament member, who happens to be a woman, advocates the ...

تفنيد خمس نقاط إسرائيلية مثيرة للجدل حول غزة

[

تزعم إسرائيل أنها تقوم بممارسة حق الدفاع عن النفس فقط، وأن غزة لم تعد محتلة من قبلها. إليكم ما تحتاجون إلى معرفته حول هذه النقاط المثيرة للجدل وما هو أكثر من ذلك. قتلتْ إسرائيل ٨٠٠ فلسطيني تقريباً في الأيام الواحدة والعشرين الماضية في قطاع غزة وحده، وما يزال عدوانها متواصلاً. وقدّرتْ الأمم المتحدة أن أكثر من ٧٤٪ من الذين قُتلوا مدنيون. وهذا ما يجب توقعه من عدد سكان يبلغ ١،٨ مليون نسمة، فيما يبلغ عدد أعضاء حماس ١٥،٠٠٠ تقريباً. لا تنكر إسرائيل أنها قتلت أولئك الفلسطينيين مستخدمة تكنولوجيا جوية حديثة وأسلحة دقيقة قدّمتها القوة العظمى الوحيدة في العالم. وفي الحقيقة، لا تنكر حتى أنهم مدنيون. على أي حال، تصرّ آلة الدعاية الإسرائيلية على أن الفلسطينيين أرادوا الموت («ثقافة ...

Looking Glass Against the Wall, Who is the Freest of Us All?

[

As I grope for understanding in these dark times, for reasons not entirely clear to me, I find myself assailed by the Brothers Grimm tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I do not aim to pursue a flat analogy that renders Israel the scheming Wicked Queen and the Palestinians, the fair and gentle Snow White. But in a state where facts and fables are rather interlaced (for instance, “Jewish and democratic”), fables can at times illuminate facts. Israel’s chronic onslaught on Gaza hearkens back to the Queen’s deadly arrogance.  Launched after two rounds of massive killing in 2008 and 2012, this most recent Israeli binge (depicted by the powers that be as ...

Palestine as Archive

[

A man and his young son sit on two cement blocks, surrounded by piles of rubble that were once their home, on the edges of what was once their street. Their postures mirror one another. With thin arms dangling over knobby knees, fingers clasped, and eyes downcast, they survey the losses. They ponder the next step. It was 16 July, eight days after the Israeli military commenced its onslaught on the Gaza Strip. This image, like many, would circulate through multiple venues around the world. It expressed the desperation of the Gaza Strip. Beginning at nine in the evening of 19 July, Israeli tanks, artillery, and missiles pounded the residents of one of the Gaza Strip’s ...

Video: Behind the Lying Eyes of Mark Regev

[Screenshot from video below.]

Using a prototype Truth Rectification Processor, the words of Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev have been filtered through a complex algorithm that strips away lies. This experiment, led by @alexnunns, is inspired by earlier, remarkable research carried out by gabbriana2008, which used alternative "mind-reading technology". Those results can be viewed here.  Some of the raw data that was fed into the Truth Rectification Processor can be viewed here, and some of its design principles were based on this. Legal analysis was cited from Jadaliyya.  The raw interview footage belongs to the BBC, used here under fair use.

Kenya: On Edge, Rights at Risk

Kenya is in a bad place. Violent attacks from Al-Shabaab, an Islamist group out of Somalia and an Al Qaeda affiliate, and smaller violent attacks and conflicts involving known and unknown sources in rural and urban settings, as well as a rise in general street level crime, have created an insecure, anxious, and deeply divided population. They have also created a problematic context for the protection of democratic rights. Last September Al-Shabaab said it executed the attack on the upscale Westgate Mall ...

Cash, Weapons and Surveillance: the U.S. is a Key Party to Every Israeli Attack

The U.S. government has long lavished overwhelming aid on Israel, providing cash, weapons and surveillance technology that play a crucial role in Israel’s attacks on its neighbors. But top secret documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden shed substantial new light on how the U.S. and its partners directly enable Israel’s military assaults – such as the one on Gaza. Over the last decade, the NSA has significantly increased the surveillance assistance it provides to its Israeli ...

The End of Impunity

By the time you read this who knows how many people will have been killed in Israel’s latest onslaught on Gaza. As I write more than 1200 - mostly civilian - Palestinians have been killed, hundreds of them children. Also 59 Israelis have been killed, 3 of them civilians.   Benyamin Netanyahu complains that the media show pictures of “telegenically dead” Palestinians. It’s true; my timeline looks like a perverse beauty contest for dead babies and traumatised kids. There are the “before” shots: ...

Boom: A Photo Essay

When I visited Shatila last week two topics dominated conversation: the carnage in Gaza and the deleterious effects of the construction boom underway in the camp. I’ll take them in turn, though Shatilans usually don’t; for them, each topic seems the underbelly of the other. Building in Shatila has long been described by residents as a kind of cancer, its growth both irregular and hazardous. The waves of Syrians and Palestinians fleeing Syria since 2011 have caused it to metastasize. Two years ago its ...
