I’m an Israeli Arab Whose Bike Was Stolen. Guess What Happened When I Called the Police

“You’re suspected of stealing a motorcycle,” one of the men told me as he beat me. Every time I tried to explain that I was the owner of the bike and that I was the one who had called the police, he would say, “Shut your mouth. I’ll screw you. Not a word!” As he continued to hit me, referring to me constantly as “Mohammed,” two other men began kicking me from the sidelines.

What We Talk About When We Don’t Talk About The Nakba

Israel Fires Raise Burning Questions About Occupation

Is a fire started intentionally for political, or “nationalist,” motives worth more than an ordinary fire?

Palestinians, Not Israeli Settlers, Are Victims of Ethnic Cleansing

Mr. Netanyahu’s recent comparison of Palestinian citizens of Israel with its illegal settlers in Occupied Palestine is not only immoral, but a total departure from rationality, history and Israel’s obligations under international law.
