Bassam Shakaa: The Making of a Palestinian ‘Organic Intellectual’

    Bassam Shakaa: The Making of a Palestinian ‘Organic Intellectual’

It would be unfair to claim that Palestine has not produced great leaders. It has, and Bassam Shakaa, the former Mayor of Nablus, who passed away on July 22 at the age of 89, was living proof of this.  The supposed deficit in good Palestinian leadership can be attributed to the fact that many great…

The Book of Palestine: National Liberation vs Endless Negotiations

    The Book of Palestine: National Liberation vs Endless Negotiations

Those who are still hoping that the new American agenda on Palestine and Israel is temporary, or reversible, should abandon this false hope. Washington’s complete adoption of Israel’s messianic, extremist policies regarding Occupied Palestine has been a long time in the making.

    Africa and Palestine: A Noble Legacy That Must Never Be Betrayed

Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ Could Pave Way for Palestinian Unity

  Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ Could Pave Way for Palestinian Unity

Palestinian groups, Fatah, Hamas and others should not confine themselves to simply rejecting the Trump Administration’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’. Instead, they should use their resistance to the new American-Israeli plot as an opportunity to unify their ranks.

Andre Vltchek: It Is Indifference of the Israelis That Is Killing People

  Andre Vltchek: It Is Indifference of the Israelis That Is Killing People

In the past, whenever I went to (or more precisely, ‘through’) Israel, it was for some antagonistic purpose: to write about the brutal suppression of the intifada in Gaza or Hebron, to comment on the insanity of the land grab around Bethlehem, or to report from the eerie and de-populated Golan Heights, which Israel occupies…

JERUSALEM, PALESTINE — Nakba Day — the day when Palestinians commemorate the destruction of their country and the mass killing and forced eviction of their people — is coming up, and with each passing day, another disturbing story unfolds.
