Palestinian Statehood Blocked: Equality Struggle Ahead

As the start of the UN General Assembly's 66th Session quickly approaches, it seems that "statehood" has sucked the air out of every room where Palestine is discussed.

Whitey on the Moon

On numerous occasions this past month, I’ve been asked my opinion on the “social justice” protests in Israel. There is much bellowing beneath my short “shu bi‘a`rifni” (hell if I know).

On the Possible Recognition of A Palestinian State at the United Nations

There is much interest in what will happen regarding Palestine at the United Nations in September.

Like many things in life, this is ...  Read More »

About the Palestine Page

Since its launch in 2010, Jadaliyya has published many incisive pieces on Palestine and Palestinians across a broad disciplinary spectrum. Originally, those works were featured on the Law and Conflict page (previously known as the Occupation, Intervention, Law [O.I.L.] page), but the centrality of Palestine required that it have its own place to feature content and debate upon many of the issues regarding it. This change allows Palestine to command the distinctive attention that it deserves, and the concentration of articles and other materials on this new page will make it easier for our readers to find what they are looking for when they go to the Jadaliyya home page. Welcome to the Palestine Page!
