We don't know for sure as of yet who murdered international Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni. However, whoever committed this despicable crime must be a human beast walking on two legs. more >>

You are an enemy to yourself and the Palestinian struggle. You have just renounced your right to call yourself Palestinian. Juliano, Vittorio, Rachel Corrie Tom Hurndall and many others all understood what it meant to be Palestinian and showed their Palestininian-ness through their actions, not their origins. What you have shown us is that you have Israeli colonialist interests at heart. You are helping the occupiers create a society of hate, mutual destruction and devoid of values, Islamic or otherwise. more >>

Richard Goldstone and I attended the same event last week Ė he as an honored guest, and I as an ordinary audience member. It was a debate on the Goldstone Report at Stanford University between two lawyers who had visited Gaza as part of a National Lawyers' Guild Delegation, and two Zionist academics. more >>

Although I do not support violent means of resistance, I do not find that they de-legitimize the struggle of any oppressed group, nor do they sanctify the oppressor. With that that in mind, the abhorrent murder of the Fogel family, in the settlement of Itamar, is beyond reproach. more >>
When I am in Palestine, I work as a volunteer reporter for the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC). My job is to read and edit English translations of news reported from inside the occupied territories. I see what mainstream media does not cover and most Americans do not know. Daily accounts of Israeli incursions, house raids, arrests, attacks by Jewish settlers, house demolitions, and violent attacks on peace demonstrators are facts that belie the undercurrent of discontent expressed by people I work with. more >>

In Palestine, itís called popular resistance and has been going on for years Ė in fact, since 1987, when Israel began occupation of Palestinian territories taken in a six day war. Resistance tactics, once violent, changed over the years. Rockets fired into Israel abated, and the suicide bombers highlighted by the press stopped. They had served Israel well in appeals for security funding from the U.S. to build walls and supply its militia with tanks and weapons. more >>
