A look at the state of Arab Youth protest at the American University in Cairo, Egypt and the greater Middle East.
Timeline of the struggle over Jerusalem and its holy sites since 70 AD.
As the Israeli state ramps up exclusionary policies against its Palestinian citizens, the Palestinian community is increasingly resorting to protests and grassroots activism to produce results.
The power of sustained, mass, non-violent protest by Palestinian civilians, with a precise focus and specific demands, caused Israel to drop all the new “security” measures it said were needed at the Al-Aqsa compound.
Since its victory in the Six-Day War, Israel has sought to tip the demographic balance in Jerusalem. Palestinians have lost not only control of the city’s future, but any hope of living normal lives there.
It is a crime against rational language and thought to speak of “restoring calm” and “reducing the violence” in a situation where the Israelis are the occupiers, tormentors, colonizers, and mass killers of mostly defenseless Palestinians who are largely leaderless and unprotected by international law.
