Jerusalem: Why the Violence Never Ends

The ongoing escalation in Jerusalem has resulted once again in Israel changing the status quo in its favor. On Friday, July 14, a deadly shooting in the Old City that ended at the Haram al-Sharif left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead. This month’s Special Focus offers eight Journal of Palestine Studies articles* that, together, shed light on the status of Jerusalem and on the consequences of Israel’s heightened repression of Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Human Cost of Israel's Assaults on Gaza

Host Omar Baddar sits down with Amer Shurrab, a Palestinian from Khan Yunis, Gaza who has lost six of his family members as a result of Israeli attacks on Gaza since 2009. Amer recounts the story of his two brothers who were shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during Operation Cast Lead in 2009. The most recent attacks on Gaza have left three of his cousins dead and his family farm destroyed.

Unfortunately, the shock of the assault was not sufficient to overcome the venomous split between the Fatah-backed Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and the Hamas government that took over the Strip by force in July 2007.
