Gaza & Operation Protective Edge – One Year Later

The Institute for Palestine Studies is presenting a retrospective on Operation Protective Edge. By the war's end – after 51 days – over 2,200 Palestinians and 69 Israelis had been killed, of the former a majority were civilians (over 500 children) and of the latter all but five were soldiers. While Israel’s Iron Dome system shielded Israelis from whatever harm Hamas’ crude rockets posed, the Gaza Strip was devastated by the IDF’s missile and artillery barrages. Over 15,000 Palestinian homes were damaged if not leveled.

This collection provides an in-depth overview of the war, its conduct and consequences; along with an analysis of American public opinion and media reporting of the conflict.

Remembering Ghassan Kanafani, or How a Nation was Born of Storytelling

On this day, 43 years ago, the Palestinian people lost one of their greatest writer, Ghassan Kanafani. In remembrance the Institute for Palestine Studies has made available an archival retrospective on the life and work of Kanafani.

Kanafani, assassinated in 1972 at age thirty-six by a Mossad bomb planted in his automobile, was known during his lifetime in almost equal measure for his political work and writings and for the novels and short stories that today constitute his enduring legacy. In this evocative remembrance of Kanafani, Lebanese novelist Elias Khoury treats the two strands, literary and revolutionary, as inextricably intertwined, two sides of the same coin.
