“As the Arabs see the Jews”
His Majesty King Abdullah,
The American Magazine
This fascinating essay, written by King Hussein’s grandfather King Abdullah, appeared in the United States six months before the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. In the article, King Abdullah disputes the mistaken view that Arab opposition to Zionism (and later the state of Israel) is because of longstanding religious or ethnic hatred. He notes that Jews and Muslims enjoyed a long history of peaceful coexistence in the Middle East, and that Jews have historically suffered far more at the hands of Christian Europe. Pointing to the tragedy of the holocaust that Jews suffered during World War II, the monarch asks why America and Europe are refusing to accept more than a token handful of Jewish immigrants and refugees. It is unfair, he argues, to make Palestine, which is innocent of anti-Semitism, pay for the crimes of Europe. King Abdullah also asks how Jews can claim a historic right to Palestine, when Arabs have been the overwhelming majority there for nearly 1300 uninterrupted years? The essay ends on an ominous note, warning of dire consequences if a peaceful solution cannot be found to protect the rights of the indigenous Arabs of Palestine.
Night raid in Far’a refugee camp
We arrived around one o’clock in the afternoon of September 1st to the Far’a Refugee Camp and found that we had awakened the three Mansour family households.
“We didn’t have much sleep last night,” explained one sister. “The army kept us awake all night and made a horrible mess in my brothers’ flats.” On the floor below, her brother Khaled and his wife Hanan took us around the flat. They pointed out where seven soldiers, who barged into their home at 2:00 a.m. with their dogs, had intruded and what they’d done.

Miko Peled on “Israel and Gaza: Six Decades of Oppression and Resistance”
Published on Aug 22, 2014
Israeli activist Miko Peled – mikopeled.com – speaks about his book, The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, which is based on his life growing up in a well-known Zionist family. After following in his family’s footsteps and serving in the Israel Defense Forces, Peled withdrew during the 1982 Lebanese invasion and devoted his life to peace activism.
“As an Israeli that was raised on the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state,” he has written, “I know how hard it is for many Jews and Palestinians to let go of the dream of having a state that is exclusively ‘our own.’ For the good of both nations, the Separation Wall must come down and the Israeli control over the lives of Palestinians must be defied so that a secular democracy where all Israelis and Palestinian live as equals be established in our shared homeland.”
