“In Gaza, an Israeli soldier remains in prison. The world knows his name and the conditions to set him free. 7,700 Palestinians wallow in Israeli dungeons. The world cannot mention their names because it never bothered to learn them.”

19 Israeli Delicacies That Aren't Hummus
"Israeli cuisine." I had no idea hummus, falafel and shawarma were only 65 years old. "Borrowing flavors from the cultures that live within the state." Thievery and colonization sounds so communal and egalitarian after processing through the filter of Zionism.

West Bank, Palestine- The Wall
It’s such a poignant piece of art and in its simplicity, it moved me the most.
We had the same thing in Beirut after the 2006 War. There were signs on the buildings the Zionists flattened that said “made in USA”.

“After they shot us, we were all down on the ground, and they were going back and forth, and they were saying: ‘If any of you are still alive, we’ll have mercy and pity and take them to the hospital. Come on, you can tell us.’ If anyone moaned, or believed them and said they needed an ambulance, they would be rescued with shots and finished off there and then…What really disturbed me wasn’t just the death all around me. I…didn’t know whether my mother and sisters and brother had died. I knew most of the people around me had died. And it’s true I was afraid of dying myself. But what disturbed me so very much was that they were laughing, getting drunk and enjoying themselves all night long. They threw blankets on us and left us there till morning. All night long I could hear the voices of the girls crying and screaming, ‘For god’s sake, leave us alone.’ I mean…I can’t remember how many girls they raped. The girls’ voice, with their fear and pain, I can’t ever forget them.”- Munir Mohammad recalling the events of 18 September, 1982 at Abu Yassir shelter in Shatila Palestinian refugee camp.

PA plans complaint against new Israel telecom sanctions
mong proposed Israeli sanctions on Palestinian telecommunications are further impediments to the transfer of equipment into the Gaza Strip as well as the continued denial of 3G internet services to Palestinian providers. Israel has long refused Palestinian requests to allow providers to operate 3G services, but had given signs recently that it might relent.

'A Painful Price': The escalating war on Palestine solidarity at U of Michigan and beyond
From Suha Najjar’s blistering indictment
of institutional anti-Palestinian racism to Angela Folasade’s impassioned repudiation
of cynical pro-Israel attempts to co-opt African-American narratives [at 4:30] to Andrew Dallack’s impromptu clinic
on international law [at 3:30], SAFE orchestrated one of the most powerful displays of student activism I have witnessed on any American campus. Their work should be a model for all future divestment initiatives.
