UNITED  STATES  ENDS  ALL  FUNDING  TO  UNRWA
 

The United States (US) officially cut all funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), on Friday, calling the agency an “irredeemably flawed operation.”     ___The statement, issued by US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert, said “the administration has carefully reviewed the issue and determined that the United States will not make additional contributions to UNRWA.”     ___According to the Washington Post, the statement added that the US remained “very mindful of and deeply concerned regarding the impact upon innocent Palestinians, especially school children.”   More . . .

THE  UNITED  STATES  ADMINISTRATION  HAS  SAID  NO  TO  HELPING  PALESTINE  REFUGEES.  BUT  WE  WON’T.  HELP  FUND  UNRWA’S  WORK.        

With the United States administration’s recent decision to cut funding to UNRWA by $300 million (83%) [NOW  CUT  IT  COMPLETELY], the Agency faces an unprecedented funding crisis and millions of Palestine refugees could lose access to UNRWA services.     ___It’s going to take all of us standing together to FUND UNRWA’S WORK so the Agency can continue serving Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank (including East Jerusalem), Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.     MORE . . .

WISHING  AWAY  PALESTINIAN  REFUGEES:  END  OF  US’  UNRWA  AID  EXPLAINED 

[. . . . ] For nearly 70 years, UNRWA has provided lifesaving assistance to more than five million Palestinian refugees in the occupied territories, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.    [. . . .] Mustafa Barghouti, a former Palestinian information minister and secretary general of the Palestinian National Initiative, said “The US . . . want[s] to kill UNRWA with the aim of killing the right of the Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland.  These are actions aimed at liquidating the Palestinian issue completely while trying to normalise relations between Israel and Arab countries.  This will fail and what the Americans have done will make us more determined to stick to the rights of Palestinian refugees, especially after their nationalistic law, which is nothing but a system of apartheid”.   MORE . . .

ASHRAWI  ON  US  DECISION:  ‘INHUMANE  AND  RECKLESS’ 

Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Member, Hanan Ashrawi, said in a statement on Saturday that the United States (US) administration’s decision to end all funding to United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is “a cruel and irresponsible move targeting the most vulnerable segment of Palestinian society.”    ___Ashrawi said that “Palestinian refugees are already the victims who have lost their homes, livelihoods and security as a result of the creation of the state of Israel, and once again, they are being victimized by the US administration in support of Israel’s decades-long military occupation and impunity.”   More . . .

UN,  UNRWA  EXPRESS  DEEP  REGRET  TOWARDS  US  DECISION         

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed deep regret towards the United States’ decision to end all funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), on Friday.     ___The spokesperson of Guterres, Stephane Dijarric, said in a statement “we regret the United States’ decision to provide no further funding to UNRWA, which provides essential services to Palestine refugees and contributes to stability in the region.”     ___He added that “UNRWA has a strong record of providing high-quality education, health and other essential services, often in extremely difficult circumstances, to Palestine refugees who are in great need.”   More . . .

By Ahmad Abu Amer
Jan. 7, 2018 ― Economists say the Gaza Strip’s economy has entered a  phase of total collapse  as the Israeli blockade continues into its 11th year and the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank has failed to lift sanctions, despite what Gazans hailed as a promise of relief weeks ago.
___Gazans are strapped for cash and markets are suffering from an unprecedented recession. Last month, some economic experts called on Gazan citizens living abroad and businessmen to send money to their families in Gaza in the hope of improving the economy and stopping its collapse. Business-media organizations started an Arabic hashtag that translates into #Transferyourmoney.  Meanwhile, on Dec. 30, for the first time in many years, shops in the southern Gaza Strip closed to protest the poor economic conditions.
___According to a Dec. 31 Haaretz article, the number of trucks carrying merchandise into Gaza from the southern Kerem Shalom crossing declined during December, to around 530 per day from a peak of almost 1,000 in October 2015.    MORE . . . 

Rothberg, Michael. “FROM GAZA TO WARSAW : MAPPING MULTIDIRECTIONAL MEMORY.”
CRITICISM, vol. 53, no. 4, Fall2011, pp. 523-548.
[. . . .] The Warsaw Ghetto has always been a resonant symbol in public discourse and a multivalenced knot of memory. Established and then quickly sealed by the Nazis in the fall of 1940, the Warsaw Ghetto held approximately 400,000 Jews in a 1.3-square-mile area. Three features of the ghetto have shaped its memorial legacy: it was at once a place of almost absolute segregation and constriction, a way station from which hundreds of thousands of Jews were sent to extermination camps (primarily Treblinka), and a staging ground in 1943 for one of the twentieth century’s most heroic, if suicidal, resistance struggles. References to Warsaw draw selectively or inclusively on all of those characteristics of the ghetto and have anchored collective memories of many persuasions. . . .
[. . . .] Several opportunities are lost in discourses that equate the Warsaw Ghetto with Gaza and the Israeli occupation. Besides obfuscating the fate of certain victims of the Holocaust . . .  the reference to Warsaw obscures the conditions of Palestinian life and death in significant ways. Whereas the Holocaust framework taps into a ready channel of public discourse, its evocation discourages thinking through the novel forms of domination being developed in the occupation and blockade—forms that are distinct from industrialized genocide. The situation in Gaza is the result of forms of Israeli control not even feasible during the Nazi genocide, as well as overlapping and clashing modes of sovereignty that encompass intra-Palestinian conflicts, local powers Israel and Egypt, and the global structures of empire underwritten by the United States. Finally, the discourse of equation in Gaza–Warsaw analogies also imports a dangerous model of victimization into Palestinian politics. For, as a genocidal way-station, the Warsaw Ghetto ultimately offered no exit except the suicidal struggle that the resistance fighters waged in 1943. The situation in Gaza is dire but still allows forms of politics beyond suicide. As historian Mark LeVine writes, “If Gaza is today’s Warsaw, then Palestinians have no hope.” [. . . .]  SOURCE . . .   

Opinion/Analysis: HAASS  AND  KRISTOF  CAN’T  CROSS  THE  ZIONIST  RUBICON 
Mondoweiss  
By Scott Roth and Phil Weiss
Jan. 7, 2018 ― David Halbfinger produced a fine piece of reporting for  the New York Times this weekend, an article addressing the death of the two-state solution and Palestinians’ recognition that they have begun a struggle for equal rights in one state. Why– there might even be a Palestinian prime minister one day.
___The article quotes Palestinian leaders who are giving thought to what a one-state future would look like. That outcome is “dominating the discussion,” says Mustafa Barghouti. While Saeb Erekat says Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital “was the death knell for the two-state solution.”
___Halbfinger speaks plainly about what a real democracy would look like between the river and the sea:  Palestinian supporters envision one state with equal rights for Palestinians and Jews. Palestinians would have proportionate political power and, given demographic trends, would before long be a majority, spelling the end of the Zionist project.  MORE . . .

Jan. 7, 2018 ― I know it is still a taboo to call Israel a Nazi or Nazi-like state. However, an honest writer should always be guided by his or her moral conscience and never succumb to the tyranny of public opinion or prevailing media discourse. . . .
___I believe that we Palestinians who live under the yoke of Zionism here in Occupied Palestine know Israel better than anyone else. That is why we tend to reject with utter contempt lectures by condescending outsiders, irrespective of their intentions, on how we ought to relate to our tormentors and the choice of words we use in describing the killers of our children.
___I am not calling Israel a Nazi-or Nazi-like entity because I am convinced that Israel used the very same tools in effecting the Nakba that the Third Reich used in effecting the Holocaust against European Jewry. . .  No, Israel . . .  has not perpetrated a holocaust in the classical sense against my people.

“BUCHENWALD,”  BY  SAMIH  AL-QASIM
Have you forgotten your shame at Buchenwald?
Do you remember your flames at Buchenwald?
Have you forgotten your love in the lexicon
of silence? Do you remember your panic―
at the reign of death, in the nightmare of time―
that the whole world
would become a Buchenwald?
Whether you’ve forgotten or not,
the dead’s images linger
among the wreaths of flowers,
and from the dismembered corpses
a hand emerges,
a nail in the palm and tattoo on the wrist―
a sign for the planet.
Do you remember? Or not?
Buchenwald― whether or not you’ve forgotten,
the images of the murdered
remain among the wreaths of flowers . . .

For decades now, I’ve seen the queues of Palestinians who live in East Jerusalem . . . Whether you need to renew your identity card, register your marriage or the birth of your child, or submit an address change, for example, the Ministry of Interior is your Mecca! True, all civilized countries need to keep track of their citizens . . .  but it is no secret that the scene is different in West Jerusalem for Israeli citizens . . .  waiting has become an inevitable part of our lives. Whether it’s at red traffic lights, in checkout lines, or in doctors’ clinics, we all wait; however, I dare say that in Palestine, waiting has a special flare to it that has become an integral part of Palestinian identity.    More . . .  

  • Sela, Ronit. “Freedom Of Movement V. Restrictions On Movement Under The Two Legal Systems.” Palestine-Israel Journal Of Politics, Economics & Culture 21.3 (2016): 31-38.   Full article.  

The evolvement of two separate legal regimes in the West Bank is one of the most prominent and troublesome characteristics of the Israeli occupation. This separation is premised on an ethno-national basis, reflected in every aspect of life, and severely infringes upon the rights of the Palestinian residents. . . .
[. . . .] Restriction of movement infringes not only upon the right to freedom of movement but rather violates a range of rights. For Palestinians, those restrictions impact where a person can live, whether family members will be able to come and visit, how fast one can reach a hospital, which opportunities for studies and employment are available, and much more.
[. . . .] This occurs in spite of the fact that international humanitarian law . . . places numerous obligations on Israel to protect the Palestinian population over whom it occupies. Moreover, international law clearly and unambiguously forbids the creation of settlements in the heart of the occupied land. . .  As a consequence of the expansion of the settlement blocs, the human rights violations against the Palestinian people have increased and become more entrenched. Three aspects of limitations on the freedom of movement of Palestinians . . .  physical restrictions on movement, limits on choosing one‘s place of residency, and traffic law enforcement that hinders on movement. . . .The Israeli authorities routinely justify this discrimination against Palestinians by stating security considerations, both for national security and tor the sake of providing protection to settlers.
[. . . .] These and other hardships are the result of the systematic separation that exists on the ground and within the legal framework of the dual legal system. The separation essentially exists between Palestinians on the one hand, and all those who are not Palestinian on the other hand, be it settlers, Israeli visitors or international visitors. The basic principles of international humanitarian law, meant to protect residents of the occupied territory, are routinely ignored, leaving Palestinians exposed and highly vulnerable.

A military coup is a known political phenomenon in both ancient and recent history. The army storms the government’s palace and takes control. Yet what happened on 20 May in Israel, with the dismissal of defense minister Moshe “Bogy” Ya’alon and his replacement with Avigdor Lieberman, may be best described as a civilian coup by a right-wing political class against an army that stood in its way.       MORE . . .

“LETTER TO A WOMAN,” RASHID HUSSEIN

I waited for you―but, you were not born yet!
And the train is tooting, ready to pull out.
The train has learned from Man:
Not to be patient and not to have time!
And you are not yet born,
And the train wants to start
I’m sorry,
I have to board!

But I’m leaving this letter
In the café near the station.
When you get here, take a seat and ask for coffee,
Black coffee with white milk,
They’ll make a strange combination, the two colors,
Like the color of a modern man’s heart.

Then ask the waitress:
“Didn’t he leave a letter for me?”
And she won’t understand―But perhaps she’ll answer crossly:
“Everyone leaves letters here for everybody!
And all the letters say the same thing:
‘I love you, because I love me’!”

Then go to the kitchen and see the cook;
My letter may have gone to her for cooking;
And she may well say to you:
“In the soup I once found
A slip of paper that said:
‘Darling,
They’ve sent me to die for my country;
You – you try and live for us’!”

Then go to the café owner:
It is possible that the letter was lost
Among his bills and receipts;
It is also possible that he will hand you
A menu saying:
For half a pound: You get a cup of coffee
For a pound: You get a bottle of beer
For a human being: Only thirst!

Then leave the café!
Look no further for my letter,
For selections of it have already reached you―
Each section from someone else!

I’m very glad that these sections
Will reach you after you’ve been born,
For I think that if my letter had reached you
Before you were born
You would have preferred not
To be born in this century
And that would be a loss.
