    Twenty-seven years have passed since Francis Fukuyama hastily described the triumph of capitalism as "the end of history", but now capitalist globalisation is in deep crisis.

  • Dr. Mustafa Barghouti: Amona is an act of deceit | February 01, 2017
    Netanyahu is using the issue of Amona to create an impression as if he’s removing settlements. Instead, he’s using that as a cover for the declaration of 3,000 new settlement units today as part of a plan to build 10,000 units that would separate the West Bank into two pieces, and besiege Jerusalem completely. .....

  • Why We Need International Recognition of the State of Palestine | October 20, 2014
    Sweden’s recent responsible decision to officially recognize the State of Palestine was quickly followed by the British Parliament’s vote for similar recognition.

  • What’s happening in Gaza is a colonial confrontation, not a conflict | August 03, 2014
    I use the word ‘conflict’ to describe the confrontation between Israel and Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement that governs the Gaza strip, with hesitation. In fact, I probably shouldn’t use it at all. This is because the word ‘conflict’ inadequately conveys the full measure of inequality between the two sides: occupier and occupied. .....

  • Unpacking Kerry’s “Apartheid” slip | April 30, 2014
    It was only a matter of time. After a flurry of outrage over John Kerry throwing the ‘A’ word into the slanging match of the Peace Process, the US Secretary of State has backtracked. The use of “apartheid” to describe a potential future for Israel, he said yesterday, was unfortunate: “if I could rewind the tape,” he told a Fox News interviewer ... .....

  • Israeli Denial and the Nakba | May 23, 2013
    The Nakba, our catastrophe and dispossession in 1948, confirmed time and again by UN reports, resolutions, historians and military archives, cannot be denied.

  • Israel’s Gaza policy: “The Essential Terrorist” | May 18, 2013
    Mainstream media outlets are marred with depictions of Palestinians as kuffiyeh-draped militants who indoctrinate in their children a “culture of hate” and take up arms against their morally superior, democratic and pluralistic Israeli opponent. Equally flawed and Orientalist in character, more subtle presentations frame debates in strictly poli .....

    US President Barack Obama made headlines around the world for his trip to Israel and Palestine, with many praising him for his pro-peace rhetoric during a speech to Israeli university students.
