    • Lorde’s Artistic Right to Cancel Gig in Tel Aviv
      Jan 05, 2018 - 12:02:00 PM
      We write in support of Lorde, who made public her decision not to perform in Israel and has now been branded a bigot in a full page advertisement in the Washington Post.Shmuley Boteach, the author and promoter of the advert, supports Israel’s illegal settlements and wrote last month on Breitbart to thank Donald Trump for “electrifying the world” with his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in defiance of international law.

      Israel last week extended the administrative detention of Palestinian lawmaker Khalida Jarrar by a further six months, meaning she will have been held without trial for a year at the end of June.As is usual in such cases, the evidence on which Jarrar is being held is deemed confidential and has not been released.
    • Ahed Tamimi Has Become the Symbol of a New Generation of Palestinian Resistance
      Dec 24, 2017 - 07:18:00 AM
      hed Tamimi was 11 when I met her, a little blond slip of a thing, her hair almost bigger than she was. I remember her grimacing as her mother combed out the knots each morning in their living room. The second time I went to a demonstration in Nabi Saleh, the West Bank village where she lives, Ahed and her cousin Marah ended up leading the march. Not because they wanted to, but because Israeli Border Police were chasing everyone...
    • Ahed Tamimi’s Father: We Will Continue to Resist Israel’s Occupation as a Family
      Dec 24, 2017 - 07:12:00 AM
      Last week, a video of my 16-year-old daughter Ahed resisting an Israeli soldier who was trespassing on our land in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh went viral. The contrast could not have been clearer and was on display for the entire world to see: a heavily armed soldier from Israel’s army of occupation and a young Palestinian woman armed with nothing but her courage and a righteous desire for justice and freedom. And for that reason, she had to be punished by Israel.
    • Palestinian Children’s Book Becomes Target for Boycott and Censorship
      Dec 20, 2017 - 07:24:00 AM
      As a new parent, I’m now alert to a substratum of media that passed below the radar of my younger, less narcissistic, self. In the space of mild leftist parenting, this means acquiring board-book samizdat such as Click Clack Moo (cows striking for workplace benefits), and A Rule is to Break (inculcating anarchist principles in pre-literate children.)Of course, the post-colonial space of this genre (Babar notwithstanding) is pretty unpopulated, so I was excited to spot P is for Palestine by Golbarg Bashi at my local Book Culture.
    • The Country’s Best Chefs on How America’s Immigrants Define Its Cuisine

      Reem Assil on her Muhammara dip: “Muhammara is my homecoming. I discovered this addicting dip as an adult and fell in love with it when I went back to Syria in 2010. At the time, I was soul-searching in my father’s homeland and started to open my eyes to all the richness of my Syrian identity, particularly through the food and hospitality."
    • US Tax Dollars Must Not Be Used to Detain Palestinian Children
      Dec 11, 2017 - 02:53:00 PM
      Israel is a powerful nation with the most advanced and capable military in the Middle East. It is the single greatest beneficiary of American military assistance, receiving $3.8 billion, some 25 percent of its defense budget, from American taxpayers each year. The security of Israel is obviously important to the United States, with missile defense programs like Iron Dome and David’s Sling as success stories.
    • Trump Is Making a Huge Mistake on Jerusalem
      Dec 07, 2017 - 08:25:00 AM
      President Trump announced on Wednesday that his administration is making a radical break with nearly 70 years of official United States policy and with the international community: He is recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.This decision will be interpreted by Palestinians, Arabs and the rest of the world as a major provocation.
    • Trump Delivers a Death Blow to the Two-State Solution
      Dec 07, 2017 - 07:51:00 AM
      President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel represents a major break with decades of U.S. foreign policy. It is a final, devastating blow to the prospect of a two-state solution for Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians.The move involves, first, a contemptuous dismissal of Palestinians’ aspirations and rights, a denial of their claim to the city they consider their capital, where almost 400,000 of them live.
    • Trump’s Error on Jerusalem Is a Disaster for the Arab World … and the US Too
      Dec 06, 2017 - 04:41:00 PM
      Every time it seems Donald Trump cannot outdo himself, he does it again. Now he has announced that his administration will recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reversing nearly seven decades of American policy. This step will have multiple negative ramifications, many impossible to predict.
