Don’t Shoot the Messenger, Israel

In Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, 2016 has begun much as 2015 ended — with unacceptable levels of violence and a polarized public discourse.

Netanyahu Must End Anti-Arab Incitement and Confront Israel’s Denial of Palestinian Rights

As a Palestinian member of Parliament in Israel, I represent almost a third of Israel’s population, the descendants of those who were not expelled during the Nakba, or exodus, of 1948. We are not immigrants who moved into Israel. Rather, Israel came to us. Nevertheless, we continue to be treated as strangers in our own land.

It’s Occupation and Anti-Palestinian Discrimination That Fuel Conflict

Israel’s response is little more than misdirection and public relations.

An Open Unleashing of Raw Racism That Has Always Been a Part of Israeli

Last month, I wandered the former ghettos of Warsaw and Bialystok and visited the haunting memorials of Treblinka, all places where my family members lived their last moments. I clutched in my hands copies of one of the desperate letters from my great grandmother, hand-redacted and stamped with swastikas; lists of the dead; and smiling photos of my dad’s aunts, uncles and cousins, on a busy downtown street, blissfully unaware of the tidal wave of destruction coming their way.

Internet Incitement Against Arabs in Israel on the Rise

Since the latest wave of violence began there has been a sharp rise in the number of statements inciting to violence against Arabs, and in the number of Facebook pages expressing extremist right-wing positions receiving ‘likes,’ according to experts on monitoring Internet discourse. Hateful expressions appearing recently on the Web include calls for death to Arabs and terrorists, and calls for a second Nakba (“catastrophe”), referring to the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Arabs from Palestine in 1948.

The Missing Israeli Incitement Against Palestinians

"Who is the enemy? The Palestinian people. ... They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised here." This noxious and racist quote from Ayelet Shaked, the current Israeli justice minister, failed to make the cut in a resolution — H.Res. 293 — marked up and passed by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs' Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee in a voice vote earlier this month.
