Power Play Categories: Egypt, Gulf states, Israel, Middle East, Palestinians     Author: Amotz Asa-El

Gaza, the narrow, overcrowded, and destitute coastal strip wedged between Egypt and Israel is thirsting for power and light: physically, politically, and psychologically. The physical crisis is about the strip's lone power station's fuel, which ran out in April due to intensifying tension between H

Beyond "50 Years of Occupation"

Beyond "50 Years of Occupation" Categories: Israel, Middle East, Palestinians     Author: Einat Wilf

A simple counting of 50 years of military occupation might lead reasonable people to believe that it can no longer be considered temporary. But that fails to take account of an alternative time frame: the Arab and Muslim countdown until the end of Zionism and the State of Israel.

Six Days and Fifty Years Categories: Israel, Middle East, Palestinians     Author: Asher Susser

The 1967 War was a watershed in Middle Eastern history. Israelis call it the Six Day War, which is symbolic of the euphoric sense of victory that Israeli Jews felt in the aftermath of the war. The Arabs don't call it the Six Day War; for them it's the "June War", or the "67 War". It was the most hum

On the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, the Palestinians have launched a campaign calling for an official British apology and compensation. This effort illustrates the ways in which honour, internationalisation, symbolism and playing on Western guilt shape the Palestinian culture of den

Deconstruction Zone: Losing the rational Israeli Categories: Israel, Palestinians     Author: David Brinn

I asked him if the painful concessions he mentioned included recognising that likelihood as part of a land adjustment of the pre-1967 war lines. Rajoub answered by raising his voice and saying absolutely not, all settlements were "a malignant cancer." Whose fault is it that they exist, he demanded
