'We are refugees, we have nowhere to go, and we are going to go on fighting until the Israeli government recognizes this,' says an Eritrean asylum seeker
In her new book 'City on a Hilltop,' Sara Yael Hirschhorn explains how 1960s idealism and activism deeply informed the American Jews who began settling in the occupied territories in the '70s.
Netanyahu and Trump have even more in common than vanity, demagoguery and a thirst for the good life. They inherited an evident dislike for minorities in their own countries.
Tel Aviv joined cities around the world to protest Trump. For us, it's not theoretical. The new administration's decisions could have an immediate, serious impact on the safety of both Israelis and Palestinians.
Israel has been living through a form of Trumpism for years. But Netanyahu has one enormous advantage over his U.S. counterpart: the public still loves him.
You can't challenge the Mizrahi working class’ long-running affair with Netanyahu or Trump's success with white working class Americans with economics. The loyalty is tribal.
Don’t be fooled by our politicians’ sycophancy. Millions of Israelis, Jews and Arabs are sickened, horrified and enraged by the president-elect. The next step: Join the anti-Trump resistance.

From America to Austria, belligerent, xenophobic ultra-nationalism is rising. But its hold on power in Israel is far more secure — and uncontested.
They may not admit it to themselves, but facts on the ground look as though Palestinians are conceding to the occupation, with no change in sight.

Despite the #OscarsSoWhite protest, I would bet that of the 6,200 Academy members, those who chose not to nominate any black actors or actresses because of their race was zero. Even subconsciously: zero.
The BDS movement should focus on the battle for world public opinion rather than on economic campaigns that chiefly punish Palestinians themselves.
Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
