    PP#48 - 'Collective Punishment as a Tool of Israeli Domination' with Michael Lynk, Rania Muhareb, Munir Nuseibah, Budour Hassan, Sahar Francis & Nada Awad [2020-08-14] - (Download here)


    INFO:

    In this episode of The Palestine Podcast, Israeli human rights activists Michael Sfard and Sharona Weiss speak about the findings and conclusions of a landmark legal opinion on Apartheid in Palestine, and Palestinian academic Munir Nuseibah gives his view on what the findings mean.

    Apartheid is a name for a type of regime and an international crime. The crime of apartheid has a clear definition, and although its origin is historically linked to the racist regime in South Africa, it is now an independent legal concept.

    In 2020, Yesh Din, an Israeli human rights organisation commissioned human rights lawyer Michael Sfard to produce a legal opinion on the prevailing in the occupied Palestinian West Bank. The conclusion of this legal opinion is that the crime against humanity of apartheid is indeed being committed by the Israeli state, and the victims of this crime are the indigenous Palestinians.

    About the speakers

    Sharona Weiss is Head of International Advocacy Department with the Israeli human rights organisation Yesh Din.

    Michael Sfard is an Israeli lawyer with expertise in international humanitarian law and international human rights law.

    Munir Nuseibah is a Palestinian academic expert on transitional justice and humanitarian law, and Director of the Community Action Center at the Al-Quds University.

    PP#47 - 'Collective Punishment as a Tool of Israeli Domination' with Michael Lynk, Rania Muhareb, Munir Nuseibah, Budour Hassan, Sahar Francis & Nada Awad [2020-07-14] - (Download here)


    INFO:

    This episode features a fascinating and timely discussion of Apartheid Israel’s use of illegal collective punishment as a tool to dominate and control the Palestinian people, while utilizing so-called “security” pretexts and rhetoric to justify its inhumane policies.

    The speakers address aspects of Israel’s illegal policies, including the withholding of bodies, arbitrary detention, collective punishment against Palestinian prisoners, detainees, and their families, residency revocation, and punitive house demolitions. They also highlight Israel’s use of various forms of collective punishment with the intention of maintaining an apartheid regime over the Palestinian people as a whole. One of the contributors, UN Special Rapporteur, Prof. Michael Lynk, introduced his report to the Human Rights Council, which report focuses on the illegality of collective punishment. In his presentation, Prof. Lynk, warned that “like torture, there are no permissible exceptions to the use of collective punishment in law. And, like torture, the use of collective punishment flouts law and morality, dignity and justice, and stains all those who practice it.”

    Speakers:

    Michael Lynk - UN Special rapporteur on human rights in Palestine

    Rania Muhareb - Legal Researcher and Advocacy Officer, Al-Haq

    Munir Nuseibah - General Director, Community Action Center in Al-Quds University

    Budour Hassan - Legal researcher, Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center

    Sahar Francis - General Director, Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association.

    PP#46 - ‘Systemic Racism in the US and Israel’ with Nadia Abu El-Haj, Johanna Fernández, Maha Nassar and Nahla Abdo  [2020-07-14] - (Download here)


    INFO:

    In this episode of The Palestine Podcast we hear an urgent, informative and disturbing discussion between Nadia Abu El-Haj, Johanna Fernández, Maha Nassar and Nahla Abdo about racial policing, systemic racism and settler-colonial repression in the United States and the Apartheid state of Israel.  

    Recent police violence in the US has sparked anti-racism protests around the world and ignited a discussion of systemic racism within many societies and political systems. Despite major differences in the regimes of oppression and discrimination in the US and Israel, certain parallels exist and serve to shed light on both systems. In the case of the US and Israel, the connections go beyond analogies and extend to material links between the respective security states and policing practices, including what has been called the "Israelization" of policing.

    About the speakers

    Nadia Abu El-Haj is the Ann Olin Whitney Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Chair of the BoD, SOF/Heyman Center for the Humanities, and Co-Director of the Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University. She is the author of two books and several journal articles published on topics ranging from the history of archaeology in Palestine to the question of race and genomics today.

    Johanna Fernández teaches at the Department of History at Baruch College (CUNY). She is the writer, producer of the film, Justice on Trial: the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Her Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) lawsuit against the NYPD, led to the recovery of the largest repository of police surveillance records in the country.

    Maha Nassar is an Associate Professor in the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the University of Arizona and the author of Brothers Apart: Palestinian Citizens of Israel and the Arab World (Stanford University Press, 2017).

    Nahla Abdo is a Palestinian-Canadian political activist and Professor of Sociology at Carleton University. She is the author of several publications, most recently Captive Revolution: Palestinian women’s Anti-Colonial Struggle Within the Israeli Prison System.

    INFO:

    To mark Nakba Day 2020, on Wednesday 13h May the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign was honoured to host an online public meeting with Palestinian legal expert and political analyst Diana Buttu.

    About the talk

    Ms. Buttu discussed Israel’s latest plan to illegally annex large areas of the West Bank in the context on the ‘Ongoing Nakba’ which has seen the Palestinians subjected to seven decades of dispossession, ethnic cleansing, military occupation, mass incarceration, illegal annexation and racist apartheid.

    72 years on from the violent colonial partition of Palestine in 1948 and the forcible expulsion of two thirds of its indigenous people, she will also discuss what Palestinians, internationals and the international community can do to prevent this new Nakba, and how we can effectively support the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, justice, equality and return.

    About the speaker

    Diana Buttu is a Ramallah-based lawyer, analyst and commentator, a former legal advisor to Palestine Liberation Organization, and Policy Advisor to the Palestinian thinktank Al-Shabaka.

    PP#34 - Selma Dabbagh & Basma Ghalayini on 'Palestine +100: Stories from a Century After the Nakba' [2019-11-06] - (Download here)


    INFO:


    On Wednesday 6th November 2019 in Trinity College Dublin, ‘Palestine +100: Stories From a Century After The Nakba’, the first ever anthology of Palestinian science fiction, was launched by Palestinian writer Selma Dabbagh and editor Basma Ghalayini.

    The book poses a question to contemporary Palestinian writers: what might your home city look like in the year 2048 – exactly 100 years after Nakba, the displacement of more than 700,000 people? The result: contemporary Palestinian writers offering their own spin on the science fiction and fantasy genre.

    Covering a range of approaches – from SF noir, to nightmarish dystopia, to high-tech farce – these stories use the blank canvas of the future to reimagine the Palestinian experience today. Along the way, we encounter drone swarms, digital uprisings, time-bending VR, peace treaties that span parallel universes, and even a Palestinian superhero, in the first anthology of science fiction from Palestine.

    Hear one of the contributors to this groundbreaking new collection of science-fiction stories, British Palestinian writer, Selma Dabbagh and the editor, Basma Ghalayini, as they discuss an anthology that uses possible futures as a vehicle for exploring the politics of the present.

    PP#33 - Ilan Pappe on 'The Biggest Prison on Earth: A History of the Occupied Territories [2019-10-12] - (Download here)


    INFO:


    The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign was honoured to launch the paperback of Ilan Pappe’s new book, The Biggest Prison on Earth: A History of the Occupied Territories (Oneworld, 2019) on 12th October 2019 in Dublin. This podcast is a recording of the talk by the acclaimed Israeli historian where he discussed a book which has been called “critical for understanding the present situation and looking forward to possible solutions”.

    About the Book

    Shortlisted for the Palestine Book Awards 2017

    From the author of the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine – the seminal study of the 1948 Nakba and the violent creation of the State of Israel – comes an incisive look at the Occupied Palestinian Territories, picking up the story where that book left off.

    In this comprehensive exploration of one of the world’s most prolonged and tragic conflicts, Pappe uses recently declassified archival material to analyse the motivations and strategies of the generals and politicians – and the decision-making process itself – that laid the foundation of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. From a survey of the legal and bureaucratic infrastructures that were put in place to control the population of over one million Palestinians, to the security mechanisms that vigorously enforced that control, Pappe paints a picture of what is to all intents and purposes the world’s largest ‘open prison’.

    About the Author

    Ilan Pappe is Professor of History at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies and Director of the European Centre for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter, and the author of over a dozen books including the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, A History of Modern Palestine, The Idea of Israel, Ten Myths About Israel and The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel. In 2017, Pappe was awarded the Middle East Monitor’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Palestine Book Awards.

    PP#32 - Ben White on 'Cracks in the Wall: Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel' [2019-02-28] - (Download here)


    INFO:


    As part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2019, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Academics for Palestine were proud to host acclaimed journalist and author Ben White for an evening of discussion about his latest book Cracks in the Wall: Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel (Pluto, 2018). The event took place on 28th February 2019 in Dublin.

    About ‘Cracks in the Wall’

    After decades of occupation and creeping annexation, Israel has created an apartheid, one state reality in historic Palestine. Peace efforts have failed because of one, inconvenient truth: the Israeli maximum on offer does not meet the Palestinian minimum, or the standards of international law.

    But while the situation on the ground is bleak, Ben White argues that there are widening cracks in Israel’s traditional pillars of support. Opposition to Israeli policies and even critiques of Zionism are growing in Jewish communities, as well as amongst Western progressives. The election of Donald Trump has served as a catalyst for these processes, including the transformation of Israel from a partisan issue into one that divides the US establishment. Meanwhile, the Palestinian-led boycott campaign is gathering momentum, prompting a desperate backlash by Israel and its allies.

    With sharp analysis, Ben White says now is the time to plot a course that avoids the mistakes of the past – a way forward beyond apartheid in Palestine. The solution is not partition and ethnic separation, but equality and self-determination – for all.

    About the Author

    Ben White is a journalist and analyst, who has been visiting and writing about Palestine for over a decade. His books include Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy (Pluto, 2011), Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide (Pluto, 2014), and Cracks in the Wall: Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel (Pluto, 2018). His articles have been published by the Guardian, Independent, Newsweek Middle East, and many others. Ben is a frequent guest expert on Al Jazeera, and is a contributor for Al-Shabaka: The Palestinian Policy Network.
