Death of an Abbas Opponent in Palestinian Detention Stokes Revulsion Toward His Rule

After all, the greater the loathing and repulsion for an unpopular authoritarian regime that won’t change, the more blatant that regime’s warnings and methods of deterrence. That is, Banat’s arrest and the violence were planned and calculated, but not the result: his death.

The Palestinian Authority which regularly hands over Palestinian activists to the Israeli regime for torture & incarceration, has now beaten an activist- Nizar Banat- to death. God knows what we did to deserve these shameful & traitorous murderers. #nizarbanat

I am extremely concerned by the growing conflict in Israel and Palestine. Once again we are seeing how the irresponsible actions of government-allied right-wing extremists in Jerusalem can escalate quickly into devastating war.

Israeli children should not have to spend the night scared in bomb shelters, as many are doing tonight. Palestinian children should not have to grow up under the constant violence and oppression of occupation, as so many do, and have done.

The United States must call for an immediate cease-fire and an end to provocative and illegal settlement activity. And we must also recommit to working with Israelis and Palestinians to finally end this conflict.

The Jerusalem uprising had no Hamas or Fatah leadership. Both groups want to capitalize on it and gain some popularity, knowing that their actions will hurt those they claim to want to help most.

Unpopular opinion: Rockets fired from Gaza doesn’t help the popular grassroots movement in Jerusalem. It is taking the picture away from Jerusalem for political gains. الله يرحم الشهداء

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Must Resign – or Be Deposed

The geriatric, ineffectual, corrupt and authoritarian Palestinian president has finally called elections and an unprecedented array of candidates is snapping at his heels. But there’s little chance he’ll go quietly

Israeli Leftists, Apologizing for Your Beliefs Won’t Spare You. Get Off the Defensive

Even if you say “Jewish left” instead of “Israeli left” because it sounds more patriotic, they’ll always have another loyalty test on the way. Because groveling, stammering and apologizing for what you believe in won’t spare you.

The right is ready to go on television, on radio, online, wherever necessary, to defend an apartheid plan, to defend billions being spent at a time of deep recession and to defend a corrupt prime minister. They’re ready to defend the most galling things, and you’re not ready to defend the truth? Try it sometime. Believe me, it’s easier.

Why We, Palestinians and Israelis, Insist on Mourning Our Dead Together

(22.05.2019)

Mourning is a personal matter. When it comes to mourning victims of war, terror, and state-sponsored suppression, mourning is also a political matter—especially in Israel and Palestine. We, a Palestinian man from the West Bank who served 10 years in an Israeli prison and an Israeli woman who served in the Israeli army, are not supposed to care about each other’s dead. We are taught this constantly. But, out of a commitment that is both concretely political and inherently human, we have decided to reject this logic and fight for a public space in which we can feel pain for the dead on all sides.
