Deal or no deal

The League of Nations, which placed Palestine under British mandate reflected a heady mixture of religious and imperial motivations that Britain would find difficult to reconcile in the troubled years ahead. Palestinian Arabs, desiring political autonomy and resenting the continued Jewish immigration into Palestine, disapproved of the mandate, and by 1936 their dissatisfaction had grown into open rebellion. Nearly a century later there is still not yet a good solution found to have Arabs, Palestinians and Jews and non-Jews living together in peace in one or two countries they could accept as their homeland.

Dr. Itamar Shachar zal komende vrijdag een conferentie in Antwerpen leiden met Inès Abdel Razek en Mahmoud AbuRahma over de huidige situatie in de processen om het Israëlisch-Palestijnse conflict op te lossen.

Nog een Joodse stem op het plan van Trump: geen vrede zonder gelijkheid en wederzijds respect

Zoals wij al gewend zijn geraakt van de 45ste president van Amerika, heeft deze het laken naar zich toegetrokken en Nethanyanu voor zijn kar getrokken om voor de Israëlisch populaire maatregelen te treffen zonder rekening te houden met de Palestijnen die hun plan voor de staat Israël zo maar willens-nillens moeten aanvaarden.

Another Jewish Voice on Trump’s plan: No peace without equality and mutual respect

As we have become accustomed to the 45th president of America, he has pulled up the sheet and pulled Nethanyanu in his cart to create a plan with popular Israeli measures without taking into account the Palestinians in the talks for planning the state of Israel.

A vibrant and inclusive movement within the American Jewish community

All should know that the discrimination and displacement inside Israel's 1948 borders are connected to its rule in those Occupied Territories. This system of violence deprives all Palestinians of civil, political, and economic rights.
