Inside Palestine Studies, Spring 2018: 'These Are Extraordinary Times'

In our latest newsletter, Inside Palestine Studies, we focus on Jerusalem and the details reported about the Trump "peace plan." As Rashid Khalidi notes, amid these extraordinary times, "the ability of the Palestinians to resist will again be sorely tested in the absence of decisive and unified leadership, at a time when the broader Arab world is riven by division, weakened by the absence of democracy, and undermined by the increasingly favorable disposition to Israel of many of its absolute rulers."

Occupation Becomes Permanent

Last month Palestinians marked the 70th anniversary of the Nakba by exploring the historical foundations of the events that transpired in 1948 when nearly 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and never allowed to return. Far from a singular historical event that ended with the establishment of the State of Israel, the Nakba is part of a deliberate process of dispossession and displacement that continues today as Palestinians mark 51 years of occupation since the 1967 War, known as the Naksa.

August 21, 2014 –Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu during a press conference on 6 August 2014 cited the Journal of Palestine Studies as the authoritative source documenting the claim that Hamas puts children to work in “terror” tunnels, sending them to their death. This naked fabrication has been repeated by numerous pro-Israeli media outlets, starting initially with a July 2014 article in the Anglo-Jewish Tablet Magazine and subsequent articles in the Jerusalem Post, Times of Israel and the Huffington Post.

Palestine Deception Pre-Sale Pricing Ends 10/15

J. M. N. Jeffries, formerly a war correspondent in Europe and the Middle East, working for Britain’s largest-selling newspaper, the Daily Mail, was sent to Palestine in 1922 by its owner, Lord Northcliffe, to report on its developing political and economic affairs—just five years on from the Balfour Declaration and its promise of British support for the establishment in Palestine of a Jewish national home.

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.

Special Focus: Operation Cast Lead (27 December 2008 - 18 January 2009)

OPERATION CAST LEAD: The 1,400 Palestinian dead, most of them civilians, not to mention the staggering devastation revealed when Israel finally had to allow journalists into the Strip after it ended the assault, had a powerful impact on international and Arab opinion. 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.
