By Timothy Alexander Guzman, April 02, 2018

The Jewish State Itself Is Unjustifiable and Inexcusable – Not Just What’s Happening in Gaza Now

By Rima Najjar, April 02, 2018

You can justify what’s happening now to Palestinians in Gaza only if you can justify our Nakba – the violent establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine in 1948 against the will of Palestinian non-Jewish Arabs, the vast majority at the time.

By Robert J. Burrowes, April 02, 2018
