Israel’s bombing of Gaza has stopped but that doesn’t change the main point here: the occupation stays, its mechanisms are active, and Israel has announced its plan to punish the people who have spoken out against its aggression.
Israeli bombings of Gaza have a context that we need to address and, when needed, deconstruct. Building on my previous episodes, this is exactly what I do in this one.
Instead of appeasing those who are promoting the mainstream narrative, we have to say it as it: Gaza is under a brutal attack. The last time Israel invaded it, it killed 500 children. Let’s not wait to see such numbers again.
What is happening in Sheikh Jarrah?And what has been happening in East Jerusalem in general? We can’t analyse this situation without assessing its context. In this case, that context is colonialism.
Human Rights Watch has just released its report on the Israeli policies in the Occupied Territories and in Israel itself. The verdict: these policies make up a system of apartheid.
In my episode, I talk about this report and what broader questions we should ask when it comes to how international organisations assess any Israeli policies.
It’s a rather reflective episode with a simple message: Black Lives still matter, and our discomfort still doesn’t.

Listen to this episode to learn more about it.
On the day I moved to Jordan, a big thing happened.
The country’s monarchy was apparently threatened. Even without knowing what happened exactly, what we can do is to take Jordan as an example of a potential political change and talk about what forms that change can take.
What is the New Zealand’s miscarriage leave law an example of? And why does it matter?
Can we turn something as exclusive as an independence day into something else?
And why should we want that anyway?
