War on Gaza and Pedagogy of the Oppressed
Dr. Mahboob A. Khawaja:
American and West European leaders claimed Israel’s “right to defend itself” but defy the logic of honesty to assert the same right for the people of Palestine. Their irrational doctrine affirms the presumption for Israel to continue the war against an oppressed people for over 16 years in Gaza. Tyranny is always powerless and transitory as Israelis and Palestinians live in fear of mutual annihilation. This could only be transformed into benevolence and justice through a peaceful dialogue and not to tyranny of continued occupation.  Read More

 The Gaza Crisis has Exposed the Bankruptcy of the UN and International Humanitarian Law, Threatening a Rules-Based Order
By Hilal Cibik:
The Gaza crisis serves as a reminder of the limitations of international institutions and the pressing need for reform. It is time to question whether the current framework for maintaining international peace and security is equipped to address protracted conflicts in the 21st century. If the United Nations cannot even establish a reliable international aid corridor for one of the most vulnerable populations in the world, how can we expect them to address more complex global crises effectively?

‘Operation Al-Aqsa Flood’ Day 50: First Israeli and Palestinian hostages released as Gaza takes stock of devastation
Many of the Palestinians released from Israeli prisons on Friday in the exchange, as well as in recent
weeks, have detailed tortuous tactics and conditions in Israeli custody, reporting that they were stripped naked, beaten, and collectively punished by Israeli forces and prison authorities. The release of 150 Palestinians, as much of a relief as it may be for their families and communities, is a mere drop in the bucket as Israeli forces continue to detain Palestinians every single day, as they have for years.Read More

Genocidal crimes under any pretext are all kosher for the apartheid State of Israel
By Dr. Habib Siddiqui: The leaders of the apartheid state of Israel and their western backers, all with blood in their hands against the indigenous natives in vast territories of Asia, African and the Americas, have tried to portray their genocidal war crimes against the Palestinian people as an inalienable right of self-defense. Can they invoke such a right?  Read More

Israel’s war on Gaza: War of ethnic cleansing
By Jamal Kanj:
In the battle of his political life, Benjamin Netanyahu has nothing to lose. He could, however, gain vainglory and self-exaltation by murdering as many Palestinians as possible to satisfy the unquenchable vengeful Israeli culture. A crime catapulted by Western leaders who rallied behind Netanyahu in the aftermath of the prisoners’ revolt against the posts guarding the largest open-air prison on earth. The embrace of Netanyahu by Western leaders has granted the bona fide pathological liar an unchecked authority to carpet-bomb civilian centers, target hospitals, and orchestrate the evacuation of northern Gaza in order to complete the ethnic cleansing of historical Palestine.

Israel wants to pull the U.S. into a regional confrontation, but Biden remains reluctant
Israel has larger war aims than Hamas, and is deliberately provoking a regional war to draw the U.S. into the fray. Biden has made halfhearted efforts to cool the situation, but he needs to be bolder in reining Israel in before it's too late. Read More

The genocidal rhetoric of the Israeli leaders is loud and clear
By Habib Siddiqui:  For years, Israeli leaders have advocated ethnic cleansing, euphemistically called “transfer”, with a discourse that portrays Palestinians as a fake people with no history that matters. In 1989, Netanyahu lamented that Israel missed the opportunity presented by global attention on China’s repression of pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen square “to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the (occupied) territories”.

While US gradually moves toward becoming Jewish apartheid
İhsan Aktaş: The 'Zionist gang,' which has wrapped the governments of all countries like an octopus, does not allow the rulers of any state to vote with their free will. This is not a sustainable situation for Western Christians.

Ours is an Indigenous Struggle: How Gaza United the World
by Dr Ramzy Baroud
: For decades, the struggle for national liberation in Palestine was rightly understood to be part And since national liberation movements were, per definition, the struggle for indigenous people to assert their collective rights for freedom, equality and justice, the Palestinian struggle was positioned as part of this global indigenous movement. and parcel of a global struggle for liberation, mainly in the Global South.  Alas, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the growing dominance of the United States and its allies, the return of Western colonialism in the form of neocolonialism to Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere, have localized many of the indigenous movements’ struggles.

Israel’s Genocidal Antisemitism Against the Arab Civilians of Gaza
by Ralph Nader
The Israeli operation precisely fits the Genocide Convention’s definition by “intentionally creating conditions of life calculated to physically destroy a racial, religious, ethnic, or national group in whole or in part.” Netanyahu’s regime further incriminates itself by defining the targets for annihilation as being between 21st-century progress and “the barbaric fanaticism of the Middle Ages” and a “struggle between the children of light and the children of darkness.”

Native Americans express support for Palestinian people, saying US aid to Israel 'must end'
Mahtowin Munro, co-leader of the United American Indians of New England,
"When I look at Gaza, I see two reflections of all the Indigenous people killed in the wave after wave of massacres here in North America, in Congo, in Haiti, in Australia, and Ireland, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Algeria -- people around the world whose only crime has been to exist and resist settler colonialism." "The Palestinian people need reparations to rebuild. Occupation and settlements must end, US aid to Israel must end. Palestine must be free," Munro told the Native American activists gathering Thursday in the state of Massachusetts to mark the 54th annual National Day of Mourning to honor their ancestors. Later, the crowd, carrying Palestine flags, chanted "Free, Free Palestine.” Read More

How can a new order be established in the Middle East?
By Kadir Üstün
the establishment of a stable Middle East order is impossible without resolving the Israel-Palestine issue.

Israel’s Gaza “truce”: A pause to reload the guns for the next stage in the genocide against the Palestinians
By Jordan Shilton
: The brief lull in Israel’s savage onslaught on the defenceless civilian population of Gaza is widely being presented as a “ceasefire,” or at least a “humanitarian pause.” Assuming the agreement is fulfilled, which is by no means assured, it will amount to little more than an operational pause in Israel’s military offensive to ethnically cleanse Gaza by carrying out a genocide against the Palestinian people….
The military situation on the ground could also allow Israel to use the pause to prepare the next stage in its genocidal onslaught. As the Wall Street Journal wrote in a Wednesday editorial, the timing of the agreement “isn’t bad for Israel. Having assumed a dominant position in Gaza’s north, it needs to prepare to turn south.” Read More

Escalation in Gaza and the broader Middle East
Süleyman Seyfi Öğün
: The situation in Gaza is escalating, and it seems to be a well-thought-out plan. The issue for Israel goes beyond just aiming to end Hamas; there are indications that they intend to force the eviction of Palestinians from Gaza, completely empty the area, and eventually open it up for Jewish settlements, as per their statements. Gaza is not the final target; they plan to extend this to the West Bank, with extremist leaders, allies of Netanyahu, showing no signs of stopping until they achieve a thorough 'cleansing.' It's a comprehensive operation…. Israel, once done with its 'cleanup' in Gaza, is likely to turn its attention to Syria as the next target. Read More

Israelis and Palestinians: It will be Worse Next Time
By Jeremy Pressman: Israelis and Palestinians have already entered hell. The casualties, the wounded, the hostages, the displacement of people and emptying of communities, the widespread trauma, the fear, the complete disruption of normal life, the intense suffering. But even at this moment we should all remember something: Barring a strategic shift, the recent past suggests the situation will likely get more and more horrific each time.

The old and new Nakba: Forced expulsion of Palestinians must be rejected
by Dr Ramzy Baroud: It is simply inaccurate to claim that the ongoing Israeli attempt to displace all, or many Palestinian refugees from Gaza to Sinai is a new idea, compelled by recent circumstances. Displacing Palestinians, or as it is known in Israeli political lexicon, the “transfer”, is an old idea — as old as Israel itself. In fact, historically, population “transfer” has been more than an idea, but an actual government policy, with clear mechanisms. Yosef Weitz, director of the Land and Afforestation Department, was entrusted with setting up the Transfer Committee in May 1948 to oversee the expulsion of Palestinian Arabs from their towns and villages.

Gaza is the new Srebrenica: Bosnian activist
Yeni Safak
Described by experts and officials as a "crime against humanity" and "genocide," the situation in Gaza draws chilling parallels to historical events like the Srebrenica Genocide and the siege of Sarajevo. To
gain insight into these parallels, Yeni Şafak spoke to Bosnian journalist and activist Refik Hodzic, who, having lost family and friends in the Bosnian genocide, draws connections between Israel's actions in Gaza and the convicted Serbian officials involved in similar crimes. Hodzic emphasizes the differing standards applied to Western countries and others, shedding light on a complex geopolitical landscape. Read More

The Psychological Consequences of the Trauma of War in Gaza
By Ali Omidi:
It is now important to consider the trauma inflicted on the people of Gaza; they will suffer from it for the rest of their lives, and most people, especially children, will suffer from PTSD.

US, Israeli lies about “command center” at Al-Shifa hospital fall apart
by Andre Damon
: On Wednesday, the IDF posted a video showing a half-dozen assault rifles, two flak jackets, and a computer which it claims were hidden behind an MRI machine at Al-Shifa. There was no attempt to explain why an MRI machine, with its powerful magnetic field, did not cause the weapons to fly across the room when it was in operation. Israel’s “evidence” was so flimsy that even the US government was not shameless enough to back it.

The censure of Rashida Tlaib, the Creole uprising, and the American Civil War
By Tom MacKaman
: Congress’ November 7 censure of Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her condemnation of Israel’s genocide against the Palestinians of Gaza—in a motion championed by none other than the fascist congresswoman from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene—is a milestone in the decline of American democracy. Twenty-two Democrats joined the entire Republican delegation to denounce Tlaib. The facts of the genocide are not in dispute. It is being broadcast live, for all the world to see. High-ranking Israeli figures call Palestinians “animals,” demand the nuclear annihilation of Gaza, and invoke a new “Nakba” of forced dispossession for its 2 million residents, among other blood curdling statements. But, of course, Tlaib was not censured because of the facts. Her offense is that she dared to express sympathy for the Palestinians, a sentiment which runs counter to the aims of American imperialism. Read More
