A summary of the realities of the aftermath of the attacks in the Middle East, how it will likely affect the US, Israel, and Palestine.

Tormented Dance of the Colonizer

As was true in South Africa under apartheid, so is true in Palestine under European Jewish colonization - things may get worse before they get better.

(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - Gaza bombed by Israel I was interviewed by many media outlets in the past 48 hours about the events here.

My message beyond telling them what is really going on on the ground here is simple: This is not a “conflict” or a border dispute nor a tribal or religious issue. It is simple: [these are] the last tantrums of the unsettled settler colonial system.

(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - Trump UAE Bahrain I am old enough to have been able to see Palestine slowly strangulated over the past few decades, with us natives who trace ancestry thousands of years here kicked out or squeezed into cantons/open air prisons like Gaza and Bethlehem.

Old enough to have researched events even before I was born and wrote books about them (like Sykes-Picot, Balfour-Cambon, Gawler, Hertzl and more).
