Israel’s bogus history lessonJonathan Cook - Mondoweiss - It was presumably intended as an Israeli history lesson to the world. A video posted to social media by Israel’s foreign ministry shows an everyday Jewish couple, Jacob and Rachel, in a home named the “Land of Israel”. A series of knocks on the door brings 3,000 years of interruptions to their happiness. First it’s the Assyrians, followed by the Babylonians, Hellenists, Arabs, Romans, Crusaders, Mamluks, and Ottomans – all straight out of Monty Python central casting. Jacob and Rachel are forced by the warring factions to relocate to ever smaller parts of their home until finally they have to pitch a tent in the garden. Their fortunes change only with the arrival of a servant of the British Empire, who returns the title deeds. A final knock disturbs their celebrations. On the doorstep are a penniless Palestinian couple, craning their necks to see what goodies await them inside.-rh 27/10/2016

Newsletter October 2016Women`s Organization for Political Prisoners (WOFPP)- This newsletter deals mainly with the ordeal suffered by detainees on the way from prison to their court hearings, including the journey in the “posta” (the vehicle used to transport the prisoners). Over the years we have consistently reported on the transportation conditions in the “posta” which according to many complaints by prisoners, have not changed but have rather become more severe.-rh 27/10/2016

Palestinian Authority created `atmosphere of hysteria`Zena Tahhan - Aljazeera - A recent poll has found that 63.8 percent of youth in the West Bank and Gaza would rather maintain the Palestinian Authority than dissolve it. Analysts and political activists, however, believe the figure does not reflect the reality on the ground. The survey, conducted by the Jerusalem Media and Communication Centre, in cooperation with the German Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung foundation, also found that 49.6 percent of youth said the PA`s performance was generally good.-rh 27/10/2016

Art festival explores Palestinian right of returnRich Wiles - Aljazeera - Although Qalandiya International explores concepts of "return" in various Palestinian and international contexts - which is particularly significant amid a global refugee crisis - the biennial`s curatorial statement begins with the question: "Can a word carry the cure to all the ailments, both past and present, of a tragedy?

New initiative aims to protect Palestinian working womenEntsar Abu Jahal - The work environment in Palestine suffers from violations of labor rights in general and women’s rights specifically, as women are the weakest entity in their patriarchal society.

Israel and Academic Freedom: a Closed BookStanley L. Cohen - counterpunch - Though each generation has confronted different demons in different ways, at day’s end, it has always come back to the notion of free and robust speech as the best vehicle for knowledge and change. Ironically one of the most eloquent explanations of the First Amendment’s critical role in the search for truth was penned by none other than a Zionist, Justice Louis Brandeis in his concurring opinion in Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357, 375 (Brandeis, J., concurring).-rh 12/10/2016
