Washington Watch: No "Great Deal" on the Horizon

Posted on March 18, 2017 in Washington Watch

by James J. Zogby It looks like the Trump Administration has come to agree with the conclusion reached by every US President and Central Command Chief since the Gulf War of 1991—that resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is necessary to promote regional security and US strategic interests in the Middle East.  When viewed this way, the struggle for justice for Palestinians becomes not an end in itself, rather it is the price to be paid so that the US can successfully consolidate its regional allies in order to confront threats to stability, whether from Saddam's Iraq, revolutionary Iran,...

Take Action: Urge the New York State Assembly to Protect Free Speech

Posted on March 09, 2017 in Action Alerts

On March 8, 2017 the New York state Senate fast-tracked & passed three outrageous anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction) bills. These bills are an unconstitutional attack on our First Amendment freedom of speech and will have damaging effects on our efforts to organize around justice for Palestine both in our communities and on college campuses.

Washington Watch: Trump/Netanyahu Meet: an Exercise in Fawning, Fantasy, and Anti-Palestinian Incitement

Posted on February 18, 2017 in Washington Watch

by James J. Zogby Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with US President Donald Trump was overshadowed by dramatic and unsettling events that preceded and followed their perfectly bizarre press conference.   The week began with the forced resignation of White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and revelations of extensive communications between Trump campaign aides and Russian intelligence—revealing a White House in disarray, operating under a dark cloud of suspicion. The day after the Trump/Netanyahu joint press event was dominated by reactions to Trump's solo press conference—an unprecedented incoherent and, at times, paranoid affair that left...
