"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 845, April 21, 2017: Palestine Says Popular Struggle is the Path to Liberation

by Sergio Yahni

As support for the two state solution declines, Palestinians in occupied territory identify popular resistance as the antidote to Israeli occupation and settlement expansion. A study published by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) on Tuesday provides clues as to the current overriding hopes and fears of Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in the West Bank and Gaza. The PSR report attests that the Palestinian public identifies the primarily challenges facing them as poverty (27%), occupation and colonization (27%) and corruption (24%).

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 844, April 14, 2017: A Unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence (UDI) ): implications for peace. Part 2


Salam Fayyad a had appended a confidential a unilateral declaration of independence for a State of Palestine after two years. Although this addendum had no formal international guarantees, privately it helped to assure an international community already suffering serious donor fatigue that their financial support had a conceptual horizon. Without such a horizon, the Fayyad Plan (PDC) could simply threaten to reproduce the failed Oslo process, in which international funds supported Palestinian institution building from 1995 until 2002, when Israel attacked and wrecked the infrastructure so laboriously built up.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 843, April 7, 2017: A Palestinian declaration of independence: implications for peace. Part 1

All observers agree that some breakthrough in the so-called "peace process" is needed. The Oslo Accords, which established the Palestinian Interim Governing Authority (PA), exhausted hopes for a final agreement after the failed Camp David summit of 2000 and the outbreak of the Second Intifada. In 2002, the Oslo framework of "stages" was effectively replaced by the simpler "Roadmap" agreement, developed by the Bush administration, which called openly for a two-state solution. The Roadmap replaced all previous frameworks and remains relevant to this day; it also comprised the basis for UN Security Council resolutions endorsing a two-state solution.

Statement on Israel’s Targeting of Omar Barghouti

Montreal, March 29th, 2017

On the morning of Sunday, March 19th, 2017, Israeli tax officials barged into the home of Omar Barghouti – co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for the liberation of the besieged Palestinian people, suffocating under the yoke of Israel’s racist apartheid system- and detained and questioned Omar and his wife Sara for 16 hours on that first day. Several more days of interrogation followed.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 842, March 31, 2017: American Anti-Semitism Rises And The Israeli Right Remains Silent

Why is nearly every Israeli elected official silent in the face of the violent anti-Semitism sweeping across the United States?

By Amir Segal

Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, the United States has witnessed a disturbing increase of anti-Semitic incidents. This is a wave the likes of which we haven’t seen for many years, accompanied by outright racism that has been bolstered by Trump’s election, his right-wing and racist supporters, and specifically by the fact that the president had, until Monday, refused to condemn racism and anti-Semitism outright. What is especially disturbing, however, is the fact that the Israeli Right continues to remain silent in the face of rising anti-Semitism in America.
