I’ve been following this since the first Twitter reports of a massacre came out of Khuza’a — but suddenly, the tweets stopped coming. Now we’re piecing together what happened with the help of scattered reports, because Western journalists weren’t in the town. (And of course, if they don’t see it, it didn’t really happen.) Horrific […]

I was just reading a story bemoaning how the West Bank never protests. Apparently something has changed, because a massive demonstration last night took place: Violence broke out Thursday night near the Kalandia checkpoint, located in the West Bank between Jerusalem and Ramallah, as residents of the West Bank village clashed with police in protests […]
A school that was run as a shelter by the UN was struck this morning. Israel says it wasn’t them, they would “never” target a UN facility: A United Nations official told reporters in New York on Wednesday that at least 72 United Nations schools, hospitals and offices have been damaged in the latest fighting, […]
It’s sadly ironic that the Israelis have adopted so many Nazi-like tactics: Gunshots have been fired into Al Jazeera’s bureau in the Gaza Strip amid an intensified bombardment campaign on the Palestinian enclave.

The operation “won’t end in just a few days,” he said, adding that “we are preparing to […]
That would be writer Gideon Levy: “My biggest struggle,” he says, “is to rehumanize the Palestinians. There’s a whole machinery of brainwashing in Israel which really accompanies each of us from early childhood, and I’m a product of this machinery as much as anyone else. [We are taught] a few narratives that it’s very hard […]
Israeli academic brainstorm over how to solve the Palestinian “problems.” Proposed solutions include the rape of female family members!
Just imagine an American journalist doing this:
It’s our responsibility, as moral human beings, to bear witness to these shameless atrocities. To remember, and to speak out. Here’s Amira Hass writing in Haaretz: I’m fed up with lying to myself – as if I could remotely, by phone, gather the information necessary to report on what the journalists located there are reporting […]
So the Israelis just bombed a rehab hospital into rubble: Only after the facility was under heavy fire and in the process of being abandoned did Alashi receive a phone call from the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) relaying a message from the Israeli army. A women who identified herself as a delegate […]
