Haaretz, May 31, 2017


Suddenly, my left arm was wrenched behind me, wrist twisted, and pushed so high that my fingers were above my left shoulder blade. My hat came off and I screamed in pain. As a veteran of a combat unit, I am familiar with pain. But I could not tell if my shoulder was still in its socket or if my arm was breaking.

One of the most famous pictures of the Holocaust. German storm troopers force Warsaw ghetto dwellers of all ages to move, hands up, during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, April 1943

Before you go to sleep tonight, take a few moments to reflect on what happened in Warsaw in the early hours of 19 April 1943. That was when troops and tanks of the most powerfully equipped army in the world – the German Nazis – entered the Warsaw Ghetto to burn the ghetto buildings to the ground, massacre the remaining inhabitants, or deport them to death camps. At one time the ghetto, comprising just 1.3 square miles, had held more than 400,000 people – almost all Jews, but also several hundred Roma Gypsies. By April 1943 the inhabitants still numbered 30-40,000 – starved, diseased, beaten – but still holding on to life, just.

Un piccolo campo di battaglia in una grande Guerra culturale

Poche settimane fa, il mio libro Palestine’s Horizon: Toward a Just Peace [L’orizzonte della Palestina: verso una pace giusta],  è stato pubblicato in Gran Bretagna. In quel periodo sono stato a Londra e in Scozia per una serie di conversazioni all’università per contribuire al lancio del libro. La sua uscita è per caso è coincisa con la pubblicazione di un rapporto commissionato dalla Commissione Sociale ed Economica dell’ONU dell’Asia Occidentale, che ha dato alla mia partecipazione un rilievo  che altrimenti non avrebbe avuto. Il rapporto ha concluso che la prova riguardo alle pratiche israeliane verso i Palestinesi equivalevano ad ‘apartheid,’ come viene definita nella legge internazionale.

Tokyo Sexwale, Chair, Monitoring Committee Israel-Palestine

Dear Mr. Infantino, Ms. Samoura and Mr. Sexwale,

We are writing again about the six Israeli football teams based in illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. FIFA has allowed this situation to continue for nearly three years, despite the fact that it clearly contravenes FIFA’s own rules because the Palestinian Football Association has emphatically not agreed to those teams operating it its territory.
