Bombs Don’t Liberate

Both mainstream media and state-owned media have their agendas. Can we educate ourselves to notice them or do we continue attributing concepts like “propaganda” to “the other” and words like “liberation” to what our governments are doing?

This Year Has Been The Deadliest for Palestinian Children in The West Bank – What Should We Know?

2022 has been the deadliest year for Palestinian children in the West Bank in 15 years. To fully understand how the Israeli state policies work, we have to understand how they affect – not unintentionally, but by design – the Palestinian children.

Gaza: New Killings, Old Narratives

What is there to say after Israel’s most recent bombing of Gaza?
No matter how heart-breaking this devastation was, it didn’t reveal anything new about how Israel operates – nor how the world reacts when Palestinians under siege are being killed.

President Biden Doesn’t Have a Problem with Apartheid, Nor With Human Rights Violations

Joe Biden is on a trip to the Middle East: he’s visiting Israel and Saudi Arabia. What this shows is how little respect – if at all – his presidency has for human rights. Apartheid, military occupation, killings of civilians, murdering of journalists – everything goes. And there is definitely no room for Palestinian human rights.

Israeli State Violence Can’t Be More Obvious – Not Acknowledging It Is Purely A Choice

Although it was never “hidden” for the ones who are interested in Palestine, Israeli state violence can’t be more obvious now. Not to acknowledge it is not a matter of access to knowledge; it’s a matter of choice.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 8: Erasure

Attacks on Palestinians have intensified during the holy month of Ramadan again – they resemble what we saw last year. And the year before.

Palestine: The Protests Continue

The protests in and outside of Palestine continue. Why? Because not much has changed, and nothing has improved. We’re seeing the same colonial practices, the same occupation, the same brutality by Israeli forces. In Jerusalem, throughout the West Bank, and all over historic Palestine. I encourage you to speak out against all of this.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 7: Impunity

Gaza might not be bombed anymore yet so much remains. The blockade, the occupation with all of its mechanism, apartheid, and so many questions.

One of these questions sounds simple but it so important to ask:

Who can hold Israel accountable?

The Bombs Might Have Stopped. The Occupation Hasn’t

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.

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 6: Gaza and The Fake Security vs. Equality Dichotomy

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.
