Uri Avnery: Protest in Ramallah

  VISITING RAMALLAH after an absence of several months, I was  again amazed by the ongoing building activity. Everywhere new high-rise buildings are going up, and many of them are beautiful.

Abir Kopty: West Bank Protests Expose Oslo As the Prop of Occupation

Nineteen years after the Oslo Accords were officially signed on September 13, 1993, it is clearer than ever that the Accords have blocked Palestinian rights of freedom, return and self-determination.

Alison Weir: The Democrats’ Jerusalem Arithmetic: When Israel is concerned, half = two-thirds

We’re tired of pretend democracy. Not often is a political fix so public. The Democratic committee that develops the party’s campaign platform recently failed to include the apparently obligatory “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel” pronouncement. This statement, which is largely untrue and has a number of problems, had been part of previous platforms. Its omission ca ...

Barb Weir: U.S. Democratic Party Narrowly Avert Threat of Democracy
