WHY ZIONISM TODAY IS THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS
Avi Shlaim, The Electronic Intifada, 4 February 2005

Zionism is the national liberation movement of the
Jewish people and the state of Israel is its
political expression. Israel used to be a symbol
of freedom and a source of pride for the Jews of
the Diaspora. Israel's mistreatment of the
Palestinians, however, has turned it into a
liability and a moral burden for the liberal
segment of the Jewish community. Some Jews,
especially on the left, would go even further by
linking Israel's behavior to the upsurge of the
new anti-Semitism throughout the world.

SPEAKING OUT ABOUT ISRAEL TO SAVE THE JEWISH SOUL
Cecilie Surasky, The Electronic Intifada, 2 February 2005

"Every time a Gazan father faints as he watches
his family home demolished; every time a Jew,
Muslim or Christian is violently attacked by armed
Israelis because they are non-violently protesting
the separation wall; every time a rain of Israeli
army bullets flies into the body of a young child
on her way to school; every time a young
Palestinian man is made to play violin by Israeli
soldiers, or a pregnant woman dies at a
checkpoint, Jews like us must speak out."
Commentator Cecilie Surasky is communications
director for Jewish Voice for Peace and a New
Voices fellow with the Academy of Educational
Development.

KILLING OF PALESTINIAN GIRL SHATTERS FAMILY
Laila El-Haddad, Al Jazeera, 3 February 2005

Ten-year-old Nuran Iyad Dib went to school as
ecstatic as any schoolgirl should be. But this
crisp winter day was special: she would receive
her bi-annual report card. As it turned out, she
passed with flying colors, which meant a gift from
her parents, who had been saving up their
dwindling funds for this occasion. The teacher's
comment on top of her report read: We predict a
very bright future for Nuran. But Nuran would have
no such future, and her gift lies abandoned in a
corner of her family's grieving home. On the
afternoon of 31 January 2005, Israeli sniper fire
ripped through her face as she stood in her
school's courtyard, lining up for afternoon
assembly.

Diaries
SAIDA'S SIX DAYS OF CURFEW
Donna Mulhearn, Live from Palestine, 3 February 2005

I am writing this by candlelight in a family
living room in the Palestinian West Bank town of
Saida where I am currently under military-enforced
house arrest, along with 3,500 others. The living
room of my adopted home is packed full of people.
They have no choice but to stay inside. If they
open their front door they will be confronted by
the machine gun of one of the hundreds of heavily
armed Israeli soldiers who invaded and occupied
this sleepy farming town three days ago. Donna
Mulhearn has spent the last week in the
Palestinian West Bank town of Saida under curfew
and military occupation with its people.

LOOK FOR A FUTURE PALESTINE IN THE PAST
George E. Bisharat, The Electronic Intifada, 3 February 2005

Six decades ago, my family celebrated Christmas in
its Jerusalem home, as did the families of other
Palestinian Christians in Bethlehem, Nazareth and
throughout the Holy Land. Then, in 1948,
Palestinian society was destroyed. More than
700,000 Palestinians -- many, like us, Christians,
but even more Muslims -- fled or were forced into
exile by Israeli troops. That is the history of
the establishment of Israel that is often
forgotten in the United States -- but is
stubbornly remembered by Palestinians. Why do
Palestinians who lost their homes, and who have
been barred by Israel from returning ever since,
remember their pre-exile lives with such enduring
intensity? George Bisharat offers an answer.

WEEKLY REPORT ON HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
Report, PCHR, 3 February 2005

This week, Israeli forces killed 8 Palestinians,
including 3 children and two mentally handicapped.
One of the victim was killed when the tent where
he was detained in an Israeli prison burnt.
Israeli forces conducted a number of incursions in
the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Houses were
raided and dozens of Palestinian civilians were
arrested. Israel continued shelling of residential
areas, which killed a child when she was at
school. Israel continued the construction of the
Wall in the West Bank. Israeli forces continued to
impose a total siege on the occupied Palestinian
territories. They have continued to close the
Karni crossing to the east of Gaza for the third
week.

FILM REVIEW: "THE SYRIAN BRIDE"
Maureen Clare Murphy, The Electronic Intifada, 2 February 2005

Though the film is called The Syrian Bride, the
story is about much more than Mona the bride.
Played by Clara Khoury (who also starred as a
bride in Rana's Wedding), Mona doesn't have very
many lines in this new Israeli film. Instead, she
acts as a gravitational body that the main themes
of the film orbit around -- her sister Amal's
unhappy marriage, the problems of tribal politics,
the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan
Heights, and on a more abstract level, the broader
political conflict in the Middle East.

EI in the Press
MIDEAST COMMENTATOR BRINGS PROTEST AT CMU
Jack Kelly, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 4 February 2005

Ali Abunimah, a writer and commentator on the
Middle East and Arab-American affairs and
co-founder of the Web site "Electronic Intifada,"
laid out his opposition to a two-state solution to
the Mideast peace process yesterday. The Middle
East peace process is phony, Abunimah said,
because what Israel wants to do -- with U.S.
complicity -- is to set up independent homelands
similar to the apartheid system under white-ruled
South Africa. The apartheid system is so far
advanced that a two-state solution to the conflict
is no longer possible, he told about 100 students.
What is needed is a unitary state in which
Israelis and Palestinians would have equal rights,
Abunimah said.
