The only international response to the brazen Trump-Israel plan must be concrete action to stop Israel's West Bank annexation, and full-fledged apartheid
Dr. Saeb Erekat is the Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization
At the UN today, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will say: Give peace, not apartheid, a chance. And he will offer a serious proposal to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Mideast
There is nothing ethical in trading in products made with stolen natural resources on stolen land. There can be no meaningful peace process that normalizes war crimes and violations of international law
Netanyahu was not forced by the U.S. president to ban Reps Tlaib and Omar. He heads a racist ideology that dehumanizes Palestinians – a worldview shared in full by the Trump administration
Too many European states find countless excuses not to voice public support for clear EU positions on Israeli violations of Palestinian human rights. The latest test of their moral and legal backbone - or lack of it - is coming up at the United Nations
Opinion Erekat to Trump on 'Rewarding Terror': We Will Never Stop Paying Palestinian Political Prisoners
All Palestinian families have had a relative in an Israeli prison. We will always fund their welfare, and we'll never accept Trump envoy Jason Greenblatt's strategy of blaming the victims, not the occupation
Despite U.S. envoys' exaggerations and pretense, the Warsaw conference burst the Trump Mideast team's biggest delusion: that Arab states would back a deal that sells out Palestine, and Palestinians
Response to Jason Greenblatt The Trump Administration, Peddling Israeli Extremism, Is Killing the Peace Process, Not Me
In dozens of meetings, Mr. Greenblatt refused to discuss substance: borders, settlements, even the two-state solution. This White House can't come remotely close to facilitating a just and lasting Mideast peace
The U.S. administration's moral bankruptcy and complicity with Israel was never clearer than when Jared Kushner blamed the Palestinian victims for the massacre in Gaza
Europe told us only after we Palestinians endorsed non-violence and the 1967 borders would they act on our behalf. We did. Now they refuse to act, because of pressure from a rogue state - America
Opinion 100 Years Ago, Britain Facilitated Palestine's Ethnic Cleansing. Today, Britain's Celebrating It
By marking Balfour 'with pride', Britain is disregarding its colonial guilt and Palestinian rights
Senior Israeli government officials see Trump’s victory as a free rein to finally bury the two-state solution. They should think seriously, however, about what could come next.
Secretary General: 20 years of bilateral negotiations have failed. The international community must compel Israel to accept its responsibility as the occupying force and implement the two-state solution.
For true reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians, Israel must recognize what it has done to the Palestinian people over the last 68 years.
Yossi Beilin is enthusiastic but twists facts. The Palestinian leadership will not entertain the idea of interim borders that would allow Israel to continue its process of annexing occupied territory.
By affirming their belief in the right of the Palestinian people to a national homeland, European countries are also sending a message to Israel: The era of impunity is over.
It is time for the international community to empower those within Israel who want peace rather than colonization.
Palestine recognized Israel's right to exist in 1988, but Israel's government is asking Palestinians to deny the existence of our people and the horrors that befell us in 1948.
The UN report on Israeli settlements should be read by every single Israeli citizen. It is an opportunity for the international community to hold Israel accountable and end a culture of impunity that has all but destroyed the possibility of a two-state solution.
The next American president might very well be the last president of the 'two-state solution' era.
The choice is not between Hamas and Israel; the choice is between settlement-colonies or states: between accepting two states with the 1967 border or maintaining an apartheid regime.
