13 April 2010
Rumours about Dr Azmi Bishara, the best-known Arab member of Israel's Knesset (parliament), began circulating on the internet early this month: Bishara is afraid to return to Israel; he intends to resign from the Knesset; the Israeli security agency is going to accuse him of treason and espionage. A gagging order preventing publication of any information about his actions made the rumours all the more intriguing. ...more

Azmi Bishara is good at being first. The first Arab to run for the Israeli premiership in 1999 -- and arguably the most prominent Arab-Israeli citizen -- Bishara has been a strident voice in the political arena and a well respected one. But being first is not always a privilege....more

Azmi Bishara is one of just 13 Arab members in Israel's Knesset, and as such he has pledged loyalty to the state. But then he expressed support for the intifada, his parliamentary rights were rescinded and now he's on trial for sedition. Bishara's fate may determine what happens next for Israel's one million Arab citizens....more

18 April 2010

Israel's bulldozing of 62 shops in the village of Nazkt Issa, north of Tulkarem next to the West Bank line with Israel on Tuesday and its refusal to allow International and Israeli peace activists to witness the devastation illustrates the total control of the military in what is supposed to be a democratic state....more

Gad Barzilai:The Case of Azmi Bishara.. Political Immunity and Freedom in Israel
10 April 2010
wo months ago, Israel's attorney general Elyakim Rubinstein formally accused Azmi Bishara, a prominent Arab-Palestinian member of the Knesset, of endangering the security of the Israeli state. Rubinstein's charges led the large majority of the Knesset, in a potentially historic vote, to lift Bishara's parliamentary immunity from prosecution. In specific, Bishara is charged with organizing an illegal delegation to visit Syria -- a state with which Israel is still officially at war -- and for calling upon other Arab countries to intensify their conflict with the state of Israel. Prosecutors are expected to proceed with a court case next month....more

16 April 2010
I'm writing from day 5 of the solidarity tent in Ar Ram where at least 17 people have joined in on the hunger strike protesting Israel's apartheid wall.

SONJA KARKAR: For Jews Only? Israeli Democracy
16 April 2010
The time will have to come for Israel to declare its hand: is it "a state of the Jewish people throughout the world" as it defines itself, or a state of all its citizens, both Jewish and non-Jewish?

14 April 2010
If there is one solid bit of truth that comes out of the Israeli press coverage of the spurious case concocted against Azmi Bishara it is that the Zionist establishment is of one mind that eliminating this Knesset member will eliminate a major obstacle to its drive to force Israeli citizenship on the Arabs residing within Israel's self-defined borders....more

Nimer Sultany: War is peace
12 April 2010
It is one thing to read George Orwell and Franz Kafka, it is quite another to live their texts. For us - Palestinians - Orwell and Kafka are not works of fiction but concrete reality.
