Cleveland Plain Dealer

The sadly misnamed Taylor Force Act is being propelled by unfounded anti-Palestinian propaganda: Sam Bahour (Opinion)

Israeli police officers and Palestinians scuffle during clashes in an east Jerusalem neighborhood in this Sept. 8 file photo after Israeli officials evicted a Palestinian family from their home to make way for Jewish tenants, according to the Associated Press.(Mahmoud Illean, Associated Press)
...

As an American, born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, I wish to ask the Palestinian leadership a simple question. Do you really need the U.S. funds? Of course, having more funds is always desirable, but in this case the funds are so small in the bigger picture, wouldn't it make more sense to kindly ask the U.S. Congress to keep its money, all of it?

[ePalestine] +972 Blog: How Palestinians can reverse Israel’s divide and conquer tactics (By Sam Bahour)

+972 Blog

How Palestinians can reverse Israel's divide and conquer tactics

Oslo allowed Israel to reduce Palestinians to disparate fragments, each with their own challenge to merely survive. It's time to reset that reality and view the Palestinians for what they are — physically fragmented, politically divided, but a whole people.

[ePalestine] NEW DOCUMENTARY: This is Palestine

Dear friends,

A new documentary well worth the watch.

This is Palestine

https://vimeo.com/221868603 (49:42 minutes)


​Nothing new here for anyone aware of ground zero in Palestine or has been awake the past 50 years, but footage of some heart-wrenching scenes reminds us all that there are real people behind the daily headlines and statistics.

To view official Israeli arrogance (a.k.a. hasbara), par excellence, view these two short segments:

12:37 - 13:40
26:45 - 28:05

Losing hope is not an option,
Sam

[ePalestine] Haaretz: What Are Old Photos and Films of Palestinians Doing in the IDF Archive?

Fascinating, infuriating, insightful, and inspiring, all in one...

Haaretz

What Are Old Photos and Films of Palestinians Doing in the IDF Archive?


From her [Dr. Rona Sela, a curator and researcher of visual history at Tel Aviv University] point of view, the systematic collecting of Palestinian visual materials in the IDF Archive "makes it possible to write an alternative history that counteracts the content created by the army and the military archive, which is impelled by ideological and political considerations." In the material she found in the army archive, she sees "images that depict the history of the Palestinian people and its long-term ties to this soil and this place, which present an alternative to the Zionist history that denied the Palestinians' existence here, as well as their culture and history and the protracted tragedy they endured and their national struggle of many years."
