Universal declaration of Human Rights vs the ongoing uprooting of Palestinians

How coincidental was the declaration of human Rights Day by  United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948? On the official page of the UN you can read:  “This year, Human Rights Day kicks off a year-long campaign to mark the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being — regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political…

نداء الى كوكب رام الله من القدس وغزة

نداء الى كوكب رام الله من القدس وغزة   قبل البدء ، استثني “شمال البيرة” ومنطقة (الدي سي او) من هذا المقال ، لأنه يبدو ان هذه المنطقة كذلك ، منطقة “دفع الثمن” لسكان كوكب رام الله. وقبل الاسترسال بما اريد قوله ، اقول وبصوت عالي وثابت ، بأنني لا انادي للموت ،لا اريد ان ارى جريحا واحدا . ولكن ان نفقد اضعف الايمان هذه صفعة تأتي الى جانب صفقة القرن . هذا الجمود والسكون…

Intifada.. 30 years later

it has been three decades since the first intifada, when in a day like this day, Israeli occupation forces killed Palestinian laborers coming from Gaza. An uprising that caused an explosion of emotional and mental oppression that lasted for three, four decades back then. There were no significant checkpoints, no walls, no fences, however, there was life under occupation, and no matter how one tries to humanize occupation, it remains as brutal, as the fight between humanity and…

Jerusalem … a city of it’s people….us

I was driving back home when I saw a bunch of settlers crossing the road in front of me with an Israeli flag walking towards Damascus gate. Palestinians sitting on Damascus Gate met them with singing Mawtini. Of course by the time I was able to park the car. The scene was finished.. but yet I found people like me, trying to be there .. a father making a statement with his children. Men and women…

Israel’s pathetic need for recognition

So Israel was waiting for the American recognition for its sovereignty?  It is really pathetic to see Israelis celebrating the American recognition and were waiting for trump to give them sovereignty ?  It is amazing how when you really don’t have real ownership-a thief- you will continue to see recognition even when you are seizing it all .. An occupier can steal , seize , even own… But can never feel home . 


After Trump announcement , the PA must pack and leave

I admit I feel depressed. I was flirting with the idea of Trump announcing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I was even trying to rationalize it, to critically debate it. But when it happened I felt distressed. I feel my heart aching. I feel pain in my chest. I feel as if my heart is stopping to move. This is jerusalem.. the heart of this nation. Given to another body that should claim it his heart officially. yaaaa… who is…
