The Rohingya Are the New Palestinians

The systematic persecution of Palestinians has long occupied a place in the consciousness of the ummah, the global community of Muslims. Muslims worldwide have watched for decades as Palestinians have been repeatedly displaced, subjected to disproportionate collective punishment, and denied statehood. While the Israeli occupation continues to stir up feelings of anger and powerlessness, another ethnic…… Continue reading The Rohingya Are the New Palestinians

Media Silence as Chief Rabbi of Israel Calls for Execution of Palestinians

Chief Rabbi of Safed Shmuel Eliyahu of Israel recently called for the executions of Palestinians on his Facebook page.

Why Aren’t IS and Al-Qaeda Attacking Israel?

Why does Israel not share the concern it has over Palestinians, Iranians, Syrians, and Lebanese with al-Nusra, ISIS, and al-Qaeda? Why do these groups wage jihad against Israel’s enemies but not against Israel itself? Indeed, this curious fact was also raised by Nabil Na’eem, the former al-Qaeda commander who recently gave an interview to Al-Maydeen…… Continue reading Why Aren’t IS and Al-Qaeda Attacking Israel?

Dennis Kucinich, former US Representative from Ohio, published a piece in The Guardian which argues that Israel’s latest attack on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip is not about “security” but rather a “land grab.” Kucinich provides a little insight into what is really happening in Gaza: There is a land grab going on.

Text of “When Genocide is Permissible” Article by Yochanan Gordon

Yochanan Gordon, blogger for the Times of Israel, called for “the final solution” of Palestinians, just like Hitler called for “the final solution” against Jews during the 1930s and 1940s. Not only does “When Genocide is Permissible” have an utterly outrageous and ridiculous argument, but the piece itself is poorly written. Genocide is never permissible, you idiot.

An Irish Perspective for the Palestinian People

I must say, the Irish people I have been speaking to over the last few days are so passionate about the situation in Palestine. Not sure what it is, if it’s Ireland’s history of being oppressed by a ruthless foreign invader, or if it’s just the compassion of the Irish people. Nevertheless their stance on…… Continue reading An Irish Perspective for the Palestinian People
