Visiting countries alone does not raise status, Mr. Prime Minster!

Visiting countries alone does not raise status, Mr. Prime Minster!

In last few days, the UN has issued a report heavily criticizing the Government of India for severe “human rights violations” in Kashmir and CIA has described Bajrang Dal, VHP and RSS as terrorist or communal organisations.

Beating the US ‘Veto’: Palestinians Need Urgent Protection from Israel

Beating the US ‘Veto’: Palestinians Need Urgent Protection from Israel

What is taking place in Palestine is not a ‘conflict’. We readily utilize the term but, in fact, the word ‘conflict’ is misleading. It equates between oppressed Palestinians and Israel, a military power that stands in violation of numerous United Nations Resolutions. It is these ambiguous terminologies that allow the likes of United States UN […]

The Colonization of Palestine: Rethinking the Term ‘Israeli Occupation’

The Colonization of Palestine: Rethinking the Term ‘Israeli Occupation’

June 5, 2018 marked the 51st anniversary of the Israeli Occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. But, unlike the massive popular mobilization that preceded the anniversary of the Nakba – the catastrophic destruction of Palestine in 1948 –  on May 15, the anniversary of the Occupation is hardly generating equal mobilization.
