Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

By Ramzy Baroud The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, seems to be championing a single cause: Israel. When Haley speaks about Israel, her language is not merely emotive nor tailored to fit the need of a specific occasion.  Rather, her words are resolute, consistent and are matched by a clear plan […]

Journalism, History and War: Sit, Type and Bleed

Journalism, History and War: Sit, Type and Bleed

By Ramzy Baroud The typical newsroom set-up, where journalists chase headlines dictated by some centralized news gathering agency – often based in some western capital – does not suffice any more. In the case of the Middle East, the news narrative has been defined by others and dictated on Arab journalists and audiences for far […]

Gulf News Special: Baroud on How the 1967 War Changed Arab Discourse on Palestine

Gulf News Special: Baroud on How the 1967 War Changed Arab Discourse on Palestine

The 1967 war imposed a new reality, not only on the ground, but on the political and intellectual discourses pertaining to Palestine, Israel and the Arabs. In fact, there was a particular point in history which one can define as the very juncture that ushered in that very change: The 1967 Arab League Summit in […]

Gulf News Special: Baroud on How the 1967 War Unfolded

Gulf News Special: Baroud on How the 1967 War Unfolded

In the early months of 1967, Soviet intelligence confirmed Syria’s and Egypt’s own estimation that Israel was preparing for a major attack on Syria. Under immense pressure, Egyptian President, Gamal Abdul Nasser, understood that his great oratory skills must translate into action, strong enough to send a message to Israel that the Arabs were prepared […]

The Unwanted ‘Bride’: Can the 1967 War Offer Opportunity for Peace?

The Unwanted ‘Bride’: Can the 1967 War Offer Opportunity for Peace?

By Ramzy Baroud There is a saying that goes: “Be careful what you wish for, for you may get it.” This has been Israel’s dilemma from the very beginning. The Zionist movement, which held its first conference in Basel, Switzerland 120 years ago, wanted Palestine but not the Palestinians. They achieved this objective 50 years […]

Al Jazeera Center for Studies: Baroud on Trump’s ‘No Roosevelt Moment’

Al Jazeera Center for Studies: Baroud on Trump’s ‘No Roosevelt Moment’

Abstract For nearly 25 years, several US presidents tried to redefine American relations with the Middle East, but they rarely managed to stave off the palpable decline of the US role in shaping that strategic region. Now, Donald Trump believes he has a chance. History, however, teaches us that he is wrong. Introduction When it […]

NENA: Baroud: Addio Roosevelt: Trump dai sauditi e la fine della ‘amara’ era americana

di Ramzy Baroud Ramallah, 25 maggio 2017, Nena News – Introduzione Per quanto riguarda il Medio Oriente, tutti i Presidenti americani hanno sognato di agire nel segno di Roosevelt, che fu in grado di stabilire un ruolo preciso degli Stati Uniti nella regione per 70 anni. George Bush ha tentato di rinsaldare il dominio del […]

Gulf News: Baroud on Israel’s ‘Culture of Fear’

Gulf News: Baroud on Israel’s ‘Culture of Fear’

Recently, a new bill was hurriedly passed in the Israeli Knesset. The Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People is the latest concoction of Israel’s right-wing Zionist Jewish parties that have dominated Israeli politics for years. With the Israeli ‘Left’ rendered irrelevant, or having itself moved to the Right, the right-wing elements […]

Trump’s Visit to Israel: How Palestine Disappeared from US Media Coverage

Trump’s Visit to Israel: How Palestine Disappeared from US Media Coverage

By Ramzy Baroud  As if he has, overnight, been transformed into a master politician, Donald Trump’s 27-hour trip to Israel has left many analysts mystified. Quoting former Israeli political adviser, Mitchell Barack, the New York Times referred to Trump as the “Liberace of world leaders”, in reference to flamboyant, piano player, Wladziu Valantino Liberace. The latter, known […]

Fear as an Obstacle to Peace: Why Are Israelis Afraid?

Fear as an Obstacle to Peace: Why Are Israelis Afraid?

By Ramzy Baroud Bat-Hen Epstein Elias’s long article on Iranian Jews is interesting. Parts of it, in fact, are heartwarming. Yet, despite the lack of any serious evidence, the story is entirely framed in the language of fear. Entitled, “All the Jews there live in fear that their telephones are tapped,” the story in ‘Israel […]

Ramzy Baroud: Nakba Forever Internalized among Exiled Palestinians

By Ramzy Baroud – Al Jazeera At 76, Tamam lives in the same refugee camp to which her family fled after their exile from Palestine during the Nakba in 1948. At least 750,000 Palestinians were ethnically cleansed between 1947 and 1948, as more than 500 Palestinian villages and towns were demolished to make room for Jewish […]

Árabes y judíos deben desafiar juntos al pasado oficial de Israel

Árabes y judíos deben desafiar juntos al pasado oficial de Israel

Ramzy Baroud  Israel ha recurrido principalmente a tres estrategias para reprimir las demandas de Palestina de justicia y derechos humanos, incluido el derecho al retorno de los refugiados. Una de ellas es reescribir la historia; otra intentar distraer la atención de las realidades presentes; y la tercera intenta reclamar la historia palestina como una versión […]

Cuando el Daesh sea por fin derrotado: ¿quién llenará el vacío intelectual en el mundo árabe?

Cuando el Daesh sea por fin derrotado: ¿quién llenará el vacío intelectual en el mundo árabe?

Ramzy Baroud La región de Michel Aflaq, George Habash, Rashid Al-Ghannouchi, Edward Said y muchos otros ha marginado a sus intelectuales. Los visionarios árabes han sido cooptados por los exuberantes fondos asignados a la propaganda sectaria, silenciados por temor al castigo, o simplemente son incapaces de articular una visión colectiva que trascienda sus sectas, religiones […]

Jewish Nation-State Bill: Israel’s Precarious Identity is Palestine’s Nightmare

Jewish Nation-State Bill: Israel’s Precarious Identity is Palestine’s Nightmare

By Ramzy Baroud The Israeli Knesset (parliament) has hurriedly passed a new bill that defines Israel as the “national home of the Jewish people.” Although the association between Jewishness and Israel goes back to the foundation of the state, the new law also carries clear discriminatory elements that target the country’s Arab communities, numbering nearly […]

Should Hamas Rewrite the Past?

Should Hamas Rewrite the Past?

By Ramzy Baroud Now that the Palestinian Islamic Movement, Hamas, has officially changed its Charter, one should not immediately assume that the decision is, in itself, an act of political maturity. Undoubtedly, Hamas’ first Charter, which was released to the public in August 1988, reflected a degree of great intellectual dearth and political naïveté. “Allah […]

Baroud in Al Jazeera: How Israel’s Violent Birth Destroyed Palestine

By Ramzy Baroud – Al Jazeera As Israel celebrates the Palestinian Nakba as its triumphant independence on May 1, it is preparing for a massive celebration for the 50th anniversary of its occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. Two dates are often used to frame the so-called Palestinian-Israeli conflict: Nakba Day on […]

The Prisoners’ Revolt: The Real Reasons behind the Palestinian Hunger Strike

The Prisoners’ Revolt: The Real Reasons behind the Palestinian Hunger Strike

By Ramzy Baroud Gaza is the world’s largest open air prison. The West Bank is a prison, too, segmented into various wards, known as areas A, B and C.  In fact, all Palestinians are subjected to varied degrees of military restrictions. At some level, they are all prisoners. East Jerusalem is cut off from the […]

Palestinian and Jewish Voices Must Challenge Israel’s Past Together

Palestinian and Jewish Voices Must Challenge Israel’s Past Together

By Ramzy Baroud Israel has resorted to three main strategies to suppress Palestinian calls for justice and human rights, including the Right of Return for refugees. One is dedicated to rewriting history; another attempts to distract from present realities altogether and a third aims at reclaiming the Palestinian narrative as essentially an Israeli one. The […]

When Daesh is Defeated: Who Will Fill the Intellectual Vacuum in the Arab World?

When Daesh is Defeated: Who Will Fill the Intellectual Vacuum in the Arab World?

By Ramzy Baroud Back in the Middle East for a few months, I find myself astounded by the absence of the strong voices of Arab intellectuals. The region that has given rise to the likes of Michel Aflaq, George Habash, Rached Al-Ghannouchi, Edward Said and numerous others has marginalised its intellectuals. Arab visionaries have either been […]

Palestine Retold: Palestine’s Tragic Anniversaries Are Not Only about Remembrance

Palestine Retold: Palestine’s Tragic Anniversaries Are Not Only about Remembrance

By Ramzy Baroud For Palestinians, 2017 is a year of significant anniversaries. While historians mark May 15th as the anniversary of the date on which Palestinians were expelled from their historic homeland in 1948, the fact is the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians began in earnest in 1947. In strict historical terms 1947 and ‘48 […]

Normalization under Occupation: How Israel Understands the Arab Peace Initiative

Normalization under Occupation: How Israel Understands the Arab Peace Initiative

By Ramzy Baroud Once more, the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002 is taking center stage. Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas insisted during his speech before the recently-concluded Arab League Summit in Jordan, that the Initiative is the only solution on the table; asserting that it will not be changed or even tweaked. But why […]

The Next Phase in the War on BDS: Why Israel Detained Omar Barghouti

The Next Phase in the War on BDS: Why Israel Detained Omar Barghouti

By Ramzy Baroud The Israeli state has violated international law more than any other country, yet has rarely, if ever, been held accountable for crimes and misconduct. Israel’s successful public relation campaigns through the ever-willing western media partners, coupled with the relentless work and pressure carried out by its powerful backers in Washington DC, London, […]
