مَعرض الشِقَاق لبنجي بوياجيان

مَعرض "الشِقَاق" لبنجي بوياجيان: زَخارِف تحتفي بالحرفةِ والأخطاء وبصمات تركها عابرون في تاريخِ المكان يقال بأن الأخطاء تُقترف عمدا في السجاد العجمي، لأن النسّاجين يؤمنون بأن "الكمال لله وحده"، وأن الأخطاء بمثابة شقوق تدخل منها الروح لحماية القطعة. كثيراً ما تأملت الأشكال والزخارف التي تزين السجاد باحثة عن أخطاء تؤكد لي إذا ما كانت القطعة يدوية صنعتها أياد بشرية، أم آلية الصنع مؤتمتة لا أخطاء فيها ولا تمتلك روحاً لحظة اكتشاف الأخطاء دائما تسرني وكأنني أجد كنزا مخبأً بين الزخارف الملونة. لذا أنظر مليا إلى البلاط المزخرف الذي رصف أرضية الغرفة ذات الواجهات الزجاجية الكبيرة التي جلسنا أنا وبنجي بوياجيان نتحدث فيها عن معرضه "الشِقَاق" ...

Fifty Years of Occupation: A Forum

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, which culminated in the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights, among other transformations of regional politics. The post-1967 occupation and its consequences continue to structure the mainstream conversation about resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, and those between Israel and other Arab states, even as scholarship increasingly poses the occupation as part of a longer-term and more multi-faceted question of Palestine. We asked several specialists to reflect on the past, present, and future of the question of ...

Familiar Ruptures and Opportunities, 1967 and 2017

The 1967 war was a fundamental, damning failure for the Arab world. In the course of six short days, Israel expanded its jurisdiction across the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian Golan Heights, as well as the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. For nineteen years, Arab states had regarded Israel as a foreign colony established by the collusion of imperial powers. Amid the anti-colonial fervor that animated much of the global south at the time, these states refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish homeland. They demanded that Palestinian refugees be allowed to return and given the right to govern themselves as promised by Britain, the League of Nations Mandate system and ...

The 1967 June War and the Palestinian National Movement

The June 1967 war did not create the contemporary Palestinian national movement, but did establish the conditions for its meteoric rise and ability to wrest custodianship of the Question of Palestine from the Arab states. This development has had far-reaching consequences to this day. From the conclusion of the 1936–39 Great Arab Revolt against the British Mandate in Palestine until the 1967 war, the Palestinians were often little more than spectators to the regional and international decisions and developments that determined their fate—first and foremost the 1948 establishment of the State of Israel, which resulted in their collective dispossession. Although ...

التقية والتوقيت في أداء حماس غير المقروء

التقية في اللغة يراد بها الحذر ، وأهل السنة اعتبروها رخصة عند الضرورة ، وهل من ضرورة/أزمة، أكثر من هذه المرحلة التي تمر بها حركة حماس وحكمها لقطاع غزة؟ الوثيقة التقية: شخصياً لم أر في الوثيقة أكثر من بيان صحفي أو إعلان مبادئ، لا يجُب (يلغي) الميثاق التأسيسي للحركة، بل مبادئ أبقت الباب موارباً على كل التفسيرات حفاظاً على "المتطرفين والمعتدلين" داخل الحركة في آن – تقية-. الوثيقة كما يقول خالد الحروب هي "رسملة وشرعنة كل تصريحات قيادات حركة حماس"، فمثلاً الإعتراف بدولة على حدود 67 جاء على لسان الشهيد أحمد ياسين قبل أبو مرزوق وخالد مشعل وغيرهم، وها هو الإعتراف يرسمل في وثيقة، تقول الشيء وضده! تبدو "التقية" نهجاً أكثر وضوحاً اتبعته حماس ...

Challenging Knowledge Production in the British Academy: Who Can Speak on Palestine?

[Excerpt from

Earlier this month, a British university hosted a conference on the fiftieth anniversary of the Israeli occupation, one of many being organized this year. The conference sought to reflect on fifty years of the “longest standing military occupation in the world,” focusing on “its implications not just for Palestinians, but also for Israelis.” Although academic, the conference promised to include non-academic representation including activists.    In the lead up to the conference, the initial program of speakers changed, with a notable decrease in Palestinian speakers. Asking around our networks, it seemed that some of these people felt uncomfortable with ...

تقرير: خمسون عاماً على احتلال القدس الشرقية: سياسات القضم والإبعاد والتهويد تتواصل

بعد مرور 50 عاماً على الاحتلال الإسرائيلي لمدينة القدس الشرقية، باتت مساحتها تتقلص أكثر فأكثر لحساب المستعمرات، إلاّ إن عدد الفلسطينيين يزداد على نحو يؤشر إلى فشل سياسات التهويد الإسرائيلية. مع بداية الاحتلال الإسرائيلي للقدس الشرقية في سنة 1967 كان عدد سكانها بشطرَيها الشرقي والغربي 266,300 نسمة تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 68,600 منهم (أي 26%)، واليهود 197,700 تقريباً (أي 74%)؛ لكن مع نهاية سنة 2014 بلغ عدد سكان المدينة بشطرَيها 849,800 تقريباً، يشكل الفلسطينيون 351,900 تقريباً منهم (أي 37%)، واليهود ...

The United Nations and Palestine: Biased?

It is common currency to accuse the United Nations (UN) of harboring an inveterate anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian bias. Israel, so the claim goes, is consistently held to a higher standard than other states that manage to escape the world body’s scrutiny despite their abysmal records, and is consistently condemned by the UN for engaging in a legitimate struggle for survival against the Palestinians and other Arabs. To an even greater extent than her predecessors, the current US permanent representative ...

الهَدم والبناء الاستعماري في الجولان

افتتاحية في السابع من أيلول من العام المُنصرم، داهمت سلطات الاحتلال الإسرائيلي قرية مجدل شمس السورية، ونفّذت أمام أعين عشرات السكّان، مُستخدمةً جرّافاتها الثقيلة، أمر هدم منزل السيّد بسام جميل إبراهيم وزوجته داليا بدعوى تشييده دون ترخيص بناء، معلنةً بذلك نيّتها عن هدم عشرات المنازل التابعة للسكان السوريين في قرى الجولان المُحتل1. بالرغم من أن عملية الهدم هذه قد تبدو سابقة في قرى الجولان المُحتل في العقد الأخير، إلّا أنها في الواقع لا تشكّل حدثًا مفصليًا وفريدًا من نوعه، بل حتى بعيدة كل البعد عن ذلك. ...

الاستقطاب عند حماس: بين المدرسة والمسجد

 مع توقيع اتفاق القاهرة "اتفاق غزة أريحا" في أيار/ مايو 1994، بين قوة الاحتلال الإسرائيلي ومنظمة التحرير الفلسطينية، وبدء عودة السلطة الفلسطينية إلى قطاع غزة المحتل بعد أسابيع من الاتفاق، بدأ حزب السلطة "حركة فتح " بفرض نفوذه على معظم الحيز العام الفلسطيني. وكان الهم الأول للقيادة الفلسطينية "الجديدة" بزعامة الراحل ياسر عرفات هو إعادة إنشاء وتشكيل الحقل السياسي الفلسطيني والهيمنة عليه، بعد تراجع تأثير قيادة المنظمة في الشارع الفلسطيني لصالح حركة المقاومة الإسلامية ...

Full Circles: Hamas Goes to Cairo

During the past week, a Hamas delegation paid an official visit to Egypt, which these days is news in and of itself. During its time in Cairo, the delegation also met with former Fatah warlord Muhammad Dahlan, which is even bigger news. The Hamas delegation was led by Yahya Sinwar. A leader of Hamas’s Martyr Izz-al-Din Qassam Brigades – who served more than twenty years in Israel’s prisons until released in a 2011 exchange – Sinwar was recently elected to lead the movement in the occupied Gaza Strip, ...

تركيع حماس لن ينهي الاحتلال

  لا أخفي سرا بالقول انني اختلف مع حركة حماس منذ التأسيس، اختلفت مع ارتباطها الإخواني، وترسيم الصراع ضد الاحتلال الصهيوني على قاعدة دينية (لست مع تديين السياسة)، ولاحقاً اختلفت مع حماس "نظام الحكم" الذي اختار محاور ينتمي إليها، محاور تستغل القضية الفلسطينية لتمرير سياسات تُبعد فلسطين عن مرمى التحرير أجيالاً وأزماناً. اختلفت مع حماس كنظام حكم، حيث قدمت أسوأ نموذج للحكم في قطاع غزة، دفع الغزيون ثمن تفاؤلهم به، واعتقادهم أن "الحكام الجدد" قد يكونوا أكثر نزاهة وعدلا، وقدرة على تحسس ...

Bombast of Mass Slayer

My name is Mass Slayer. I live in bombs and bullets, in cannons and rockets. I live in the nucleus of you. I could be an army, a lone wolf, or a terrorist band. I need not toil, pay individual visits, like the everyday Reaper. I stun as many as I can, in one go, I stun them on a street, in a bar, in a temple, in the battlefield, in the comfort of their homes-- and you could be there. Nothing pleases me though more than being in the news, and nothing pleases the news more than my ...
