Terrorists are a product of their conditions
For Israeli Jews, who feel disproportionately hurt by attacks carried out by Palestinians, this could seem like an insane proposition. I know this because of the words of one of my teachers after the attacks in Jerusalem. He said...

Indoctrinated teenagers are the new government’s greatest assets
It seems as if every day the government presents us with a new fascist policy that crosses a line. Another line after another, day after day. Everyone is outraged, even voters who previously sat comfortably in their homes are...

Israelis surprised me
After understanding their highly passive and much too tolerant sentiments towards the occupation, I'll admit, I thought that all empathy and caring were lost from their hearts. Maybe that’s true for the most part, but after weeks of tens...

Antisemitism hurts Palestinians too

Free Palestine is not antisemitic

Indifference is key in the fight against oppression
Suddenly everyone is worried about the rule of law in Israel. When the government is coming for the rights of even parts of the Jewish community, for example, women’s rights, everyone suddenly cares. Seemingly every article is about how the government...
