Does Hamas's Strategy Serve the Palestinian Cause? 29.7.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The Human Toll As the human toll rises to more than 1000 dead on the Palestinian side and over 43 on the Israeli side, progress towards a ceasefire only exists in the words of politicians. Around 6,000 Gazans have been injured and tens of thousands have been displaced from their homes. And while Israel claims that it targeted Hamas militants and their infrastructure, it is evidently Palestinian civilians including many children (over 200 so far) , who paid the price and suffered most during the past 20 days of the Israeli offensive. A Rejected Initiative It is worth noting that the number of Palestinian fatalities was around 50 deaths at the time when Egypt presented its ceasefire initiatives 12 days ago. Hamas rejected the initiative and claimed it was not consulted in drafting its terms. Egyptian officials insist that all parties were consulted. "The whole world has praised Egypt's initiative, but Hamas rejected it", said Mehleb, Egypt's prime minister who denied earlier reports that Egypt was willing ...

Ted Cruz Leads GOP to Disaster (Again) 29.7.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Ted Cruz (R-TX), cast in the mold of a spotlight-grabbing Sarah Palin on the way to a reality show, was accurately described by Rachel Maddow as a "brand on legs." This explains why he has gone after the most uncontroversial program Obama passed unilaterally in wake of the failure of legislation to pass; that is, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). As far as ethics goes, using asylum-seeking children "warehoused" in facilities that look like part Katrina shelter/part dog kennel, as an excuse to attack DACA, falls somewhere between heartlessly passing by the desperate victim robbed in The Good Samaritan, and Frank Underwood sociopathically throwing a reporter in front of a subway car... if both victims were dehydrated little girls desperately trying to escape sex traffickers. Women and children fleeing violence is nothing new: while some of the stories of how my family came here are likely tall tales, the truth seems to be that my great, great grandmother and great grandfather came here, ...

7 Things to Consider Before Choosing Sides in the Middle East Conflict 28.7.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Are you "pro-Israel" or "pro-Palestine"? It isn't even noon yet as I write this, and I've already been accused of being both. These terms intrigue me because they directly speak to the doggedly tribal nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. You don't hear of too many other countries being universally spoken of this way. Why these two? Both Israelis and Palestinians are complex, with diverse histories and cultures, and two incredibly similar (if divisive) religions. To come down completely on the side of one or the other doesn't seem rational to me. It is telling that most Muslims around the world support Palestinians, and most Jews support Israel. This, of course, is natural -- but it's also problematic. It means that this is not about who's right or wrong as much as which tribe or nation you are loyal to. It means that Palestinian supporters would be just as ardently pro-Israel if they were born in Israeli or Jewish families, and vice versa. It means that the principles that guide most people's view ...

During Brief Lull, Gazans Return to Neighborhoods Destroyed and Bodies Beneath the Rubble 28.7.2014 Democracy Now!
The U.N. Security Council has issued a presidential statement calling for an "immediate and unconditional humanitarian ceasefire" in Gaza as the Palestinian toll tops 1,000. The weekend saw a series of ceasefire announcements by both Israel and Hamas. On Saturday, more than 130 bodies were pulled from Gaza's rubble during a 12-hour truce. Just before the truce took effect, an Israeli strike on a house in Khan Younis killed 20 people, including 12 members of the same family. After initially rejecting a ceasefire, Hamas on Sunday called for a 24-hour truce to mark the Muslim holiday ending Ramadan. Overall, the Palestinian death toll has now reached 1,031, mostly civilians, including at least 226 children. Israel says 43 of its soldiers have died, along with three civilians inside Israel. The United Nations says more than 180,000 Palestinians have been displaced and are now living in U.N. shelters. Speaking from Gaza City, Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous reports on the displaced ...
