  • On B’Tselem’s Apartheid

    , by As-Safir Al-Arabi, Majd Kayyal

    The change of position of the Israeli organisation "B’Tselem", which now refers to the regime in the areas under Israeli control as "apartheid", has triggered many debates on the reasons for this change of position and its reception at the international level. They are in fact explained by the influence of Israeli, American and European political interests on the work and motivations of human rights institutions.

  • The Right to Inheritance and to Return, Keys to Peace in Palestine

    , by Ilan Pappe, Orient XXI, Tamar Yaron, Uri Davis

    The “peace process” which culminated in the Oslo Accords in 1993 has failed to ignore two key issues: the nature of the State of Israel and that of the right of return of the Palestinians expelled in 1948. However, in 2005, a United Nations special rapporteur, Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, defined “Principles” on the return of the housing of deportees or displaced. Precise and detailed, they deserve to be re-read in the light of the international community’s continuing passivity on Palestinian rights.

  • Notes on the Coloniality of Peace

    , by Fondation Frantz Fanon, Nelson Maldonado-Torres

    The allusion to peace as a state of harmony within an established order, has long been an indispensable tool in the arsenal of colonialism and racism.

    To fight this kind of "peace", a decolonial and decolonizing sense of peace is found in the love and rage of those who come together to make visible the war that has been perpetuated by profoundly misguided conceptions of law and order. To be in peace is to move with others against modern/colonial law and order, including its institutional, symbolic, and epistemological foundations.
