PALESTINIANS VICTIMS OF VIOLENCSE

     The death of Shireen Abu Akleh has become a central issue for the Palestinian cause. Her killing highlights the main issues of the conflict and continued suffering of the Palestinians. On May 11th, the iconic journalist was shot and killed by an Israeli soldier while reporting on Israeli military raid of refugee camp in Jenin. Thus, there is no shortage of evidence that she was murdered by Israeli forces. Here, the U.S is dishonest broker between the Palestinians and Israelis and why? Americans are Israel’s lawyers, and you can’t be Israel’s lawyers and mediator. Thus, America gives Israel money, arms and diplomatic support, America has used the Veto on the Security Council 42 times to defeat Resolutions. Further, Israel violations escalating during the Biden administration. The escalation and intensification of violations are incredible, the daily killings of the people with full impunity. Therefore, we need to re-evaluate our relations with Israel’s regime. Israel, as they say, is taking advantage of the U.S weakness and indecision, they are happy that they think of Biden Administration weak and indecisive, as well as they are paying lip service to the two-state solution. Significantly, the narrative and the cause of Palestine become central to the global conversation, rights, freedom and human dignity. Despite geographic divides, rifts, and dispersing and factionalism, Unity among the Palestinians everywhere, West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jerusalem, refugee camps, exile Palestinians everywhere around the world. This dynamic is internally and globally evident, because Palestinians are not going anywhere along with their Allis will be part of shaping of the future.

     Since the catastrophe, over 750,000 Palestinians were forced from their family homes and communities as part of the creation of Israel. The catastrophe continues through today. That is, Israel's regime continues to steal Palestinian land and displace thousands of Palestinians. We must recognize the ongoing injustice, human rights violations and war crimes and recognize the humanity of the Palestinian people.

Who outsmarts whom, Nature or man?

Isa Qasim The weather today is reasonable, on the cool side but dry and no storms and the sun is bright and courteous. But for how long would this last? Why do I say that? Because Nature's behavior has, in recent months, been far from normal or accommodating. I do not recall that in my lifetime, and my lifetime has been long, that we went through a similar attitude by nature. Very heavy ra...

معنى الحزن في الحياة

إبراهيم أبو عواد / كاتب من الأردن هل نعشق الحزن أو نَكرهه ؟. كُلُّنا نهرب من الإجابة كما نهرب من الماضي . الماضي لا ينام ولا يموت . الماضي هو الحاضرُ والمستقبلُ . هل الحزن شعور أو موقف فلسفي ؟. ينبغي أن نُحدِّد المفاهيم قبل أن نطرحها للنقاش . الحزن غابةٌ بِكر غير مُكْتَشَفَة ، وعلينا اكتشافها. رُبَّما نُنقِّب عن الحزن لنعرف معنى الفرح . يُعلِّمنا الحزن أن نُغيِّر زاوية الرؤية باس...
