‘A Game Changer’: Ilan Pappe and Awad Abdelfattah on the One Democratic State Campaign

    ‘A Game Changer’: Ilan Pappe and Awad Abdelfattah on the One Democratic State Campaign

As the US ruling elites have fully succumbed to Israel’s political discourse on Palestine, the Israeli government of right-wing Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, may feel that it, alone, is capable of determining the future of the Palestinian people.  This conclusion is, perhaps, gleaned from Israel’s behavior in recent years and months.

When the People Rose: How the Intifada Changed the Political Discourse around Palestine

    When the People Rose: How the Intifada Changed the Political Discourse around Palestine

December 8 came and went as if it was an ordinary day. For Palestinian political groups, it was another anniversary to be commemorated, however hastily.

The Last Negotiator: The Death of Saeb Erekat Could Mark the End of Palestinian Reconciliation

The U.S. government is in a love affair with Israel, and nowhere is it more apparent than in the halls of the United Nations. Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley once asserted, “Nowhere has the UN’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than its bias against our close ally Israel.” Indeed, since 1949,…

Apartheid or One State: Has Jordan Broken a Political Taboo?

  Apartheid or One State: Has Jordan Broken a Political Taboo?

What will it take for the idea of a two-state solution, which was hardly practical to begin with, to be completely abandoned? Every realistic assessment of the situation on the ground indicates, with palpable clarity, that there can never be a viable Palestinian state in parts of the West Bank and Gaza.

Anti-Diplomacy: Danny Danon Ends Five Year Legacy of Israeli Hasbara at the UN

  Anti-Diplomacy: Danny Danon Ends Five Year Legacy of Israeli Hasbara at the UN

The United States is Israel’s best friend and ally in the world. It contributes over $10 million a day in no-strings-attached military aid despite the fact that Israel’s human rights record, according to the State Department’s own admission, is deeply problematic and contravenes U.S. law. The U.S. has dropped out of or defunded a number of United Nations…
