With an Eye on Nearby Iran, Israeli Weapons Fuel the Violence in Azerbaijan

    With an Eye on Nearby Iran, Israeli Weapons Fuel the Violence in Azerbaijan

The latest iteration of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which has already claimed the lives of dozens of people, had been largely forgotten by the world before hostilities reignited in September. Only the collapse of the Soviet Union was able to bring about the end of the last war between these entrenched enemies in the 1980s and 1990s.…

A Historical Reckoning: Oxford Study Challenges Israel’s Claims Concerning Palestinian Refugees

    A Historical Reckoning: Oxford Study Challenges Israel’s Claims Concerning Palestinian Refugees

There needs to be a fundamental change in the way Palestinian refugees are seen, no longer as victims but as people with rights who are entitled to shape their own destiny.

On paper at least, last month’s U.S.-sponsored agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain were all about peace. But behind the headlines, a darker, much more worrying picture of regional alliances, weapons deals, destabilization campaigns, and messianic prophecies emerge. The Abraham Accord, as it is known, is likely to expand the power of…

  From British Israelism to the Miami Model: What’s Behind QAnon’s 2020 Resurgence?

A simple wave of Trump’s hand from his motorcade at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was enough for QAnon believers to race to their internet-connected devices and begin decoding the latest Q drops.

  Amid Torrent of Anti-BDS Legislation, Columbia University Students Win Referendum Against Apartheid

In a political climate that broadly supports Israel both financially and ideologically, a student group at Columbia University has beaten the odds, passing a referendum that calls for circumspection of its school’s investment in the state. What makes this accomplishment particularly striking is the fact that Congress and U.S. states are currently considering – or…

  Trump Admin Poised To Gift Israel $11 Billion In Bid to Secure Another Arab-Israeli “Peace” Treaty

The United States continues to use the American taxpayers’ expense account to prioritize Israel’s aspirations.

More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

  More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

Palestine can never be truly understood through numbers, because numbers are dehumanizing, impersonal, and, when necessary, can also be contrived to mean something else entirely. Numbers are not meant to tell the story of the human condition, nor should they ever serve as a substitute for emotions. Indeed, the stories of life, death – and…
