What On Earth Is Going On In The West Bank – And How Are We Letting It Happen?

By Sarah Champion, Huff Post

It’s cold. Really bitterly cold. The wind is whipping across the open countryside and the military compound I’m standing in is the first thing which breaks its path. It is the first week of January and I’m in Palestine, queuing to get inside so that I can see for myself the child detainees as they are processed and charged. I’m lucky. We sent my documents to the Israelis in advance and the two international lawyers I am with are well-known, so within 10 minutes we’re in. Not so fortunate are the parents who had been queuing long before we arrived. They most likely set off at five am to be there when the first case is…

The Last Encounter with my Atheist Friend

Poetry for Palestine

A few day ago, I lost a dear friend, with whom I worked for supporting Palestine and the Palestinian cause.
We also had deep existential discussions about meaning of life, God, faith…etc.

Unfortunately, for many years, he joined the crowd who accused me of “antisemitism”, however about a year ago, he rethought his position and regretted what was done, came many times to visit me despite his very ill-health.

This is my tribute to Sam’s good memory, sharing with the world, our last encounter:

*  *  *
In his hospital bed
He spoke of agony and the torment in his head
“The closest I could describe”, he said
“As if my head is full of chains, entangled and rattling inside
While being pulled in every direction”
He told me he’s yearning to find some peace
Not through brain-numbing tablets
But the other way, the spiritual way

Army Abducted 400 Palestinians, Including 55 Children, In September

IMEMC News – October 5, 2017

The Palestinian Center for Detainees’ Studies has reported that Israeli soldiers have abducted more than 400 Palestinians, including 55 children and eight women, in September.

Researcher Riyad al-Ashqar said the soldiers, and navy, have abducted seven fishermen close to the shore in the Gaza Strip, in addition to abducting Ramzi ‘Abed, who teaches at the Islamic University in Gaza, when he tried to cross Erez Terminal on his way to a conference in Italy.

In addition, the soldiers abducted a patient, identified as Fadel Mazen Abu Haseera, 27, also at Eretz Terminal, as he was in his way to receive treatment in the al-Makassed hospital, in Jerusalem, even though Israel granted him an entry permit.

Three more Palestinians were abducted by the soldiers while trying to breach the border fence, in the eastern part of…

“Can You Be Normal In An Abnormal Reality?”

Palestine Momentum

The Palestinian cause has the highest priority among the international community decades ago, but what are the actual and tangible achievements on its behalf politically?

For me, the answer is simply “NOTHING”.

The Palestinian cause is not only a political issue, it is also a humanitarian issue, so what are the actual and tangible achievements in this regard?

Let’s see .. We can’t ignore the different vital humanitarian aid has been flowing into Palestine since the beginning of the Palestinian crisis through the different international organizations, but did it help the Palestinian people to be independent? Or did it help in the recovery of the Palestinian economy?

For me, the answer is simple “Unfortunately, NO”.

All these humanitarian aid helped the Palestinians only to pass their days, it didn’t help in building a good future and a reliable independent country.

Let’s move to another different area.. We all had studied…

Hamas and Fateh: Hatred Manufacturing !!

For Unity.

Sami, The Bedouin.

He held my head in his hands and said smiling: “Are you ready to sell your head?”, and knowing the trick and who he was, I said “No, never!!” But he added: “We need people like you who speak and write excellent English. We have bought columns and even pages in newspapers in the Arab countries; Jordan, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco… and even in “israel”.”

That was one of my best friends whom I invited for Iftar at the beginning of this Ramadan. He works as a manager of a PA owned website that promotes the PA propaganda. They are launching a wide campaign to beautify the PA image to the Arab, israeli and even West audience !! “So, what are you doing now?” I asked just to know and probably to use in my writing. “We have just launched an English and Hebrew Website and need writers and editors.” he…
