In 2008 Israel Agreed to a Protocol for the Port of Gaza : Why not now?Paul Larudee - Dissidentvoice - In short, there is nothing in the Hamas demands that Israel cannot accept and has not already accepted in similar circumstances, as long as international monitors are placed in charge of implementing agreed protocols for control and security.

War weeks in Haifa Free Haifa - We got a chance to study the right wing slogans. “Gaza is a parking” – probably in praise of the flattening of neighborhoods… "Bring me Hummus, Chips and Salad” – their view of relations with local Arabs. “You Don’t Have a State!” – something we already noticed. “A Jew is a soul – An Arab is a son of a whore!” – variation of a common football chant. When they all started to sing, to the rhythm of a Hassidic hymm: “The entire world hates Israel!” we almost joined them. ak12/8/2014

African Solidarity with PalestineAfrican scholars and scholars of Africa--We, the undersigned African scholars and scholars of Africa, hold that silence about the latest humanitarian catastrophe caused by Israel’s new military assault on the Gaza Strip—the third and most devastating in six years—constitutes complicity. Member state of NATO which mounted an air war on Libya ostensibly to protect civilians in Benghazi have been by and large quiet about the fate of civilians in Gaza. World governments and mainstream media do not hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law. We, however, as a community of scholars have a moral responsibility to do so. dn10/8/2014

West Bank uprisings dampened by PAAhmad Azem - Al Monitor "It should be noted that young Palestinians have started to develop a new type of confrontation in the villages near the settlements, or at checkpoints. They are starting to cut off roads and prevent Israeli vehicles from passing while the Israeli army watches from afar. Al-Monitor has witnessed such events in the village of Al-Eizariya, near the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim and Jerusalem. Yet at times, the army would directly intervene as it did in Beit Hanina and Shuafat. This raises the question: To what extent will this situation develop?" ca8/8/2014

Emergency call from GazaMartin Lejeune - Gaza City, 31st July - The nerves are constantly on the edge after three and a half weeks of continuous bombardment, of which I only experienced one and a half weeks. Nevertheless, all 70 inhabitants of this house behave calm and considerate. They share everything they have, a baked bread, the last cigarette, a mobile phone battery or a piece of soap for personal hygiene. Yesterday I was in our quarters’ kindergarten, where 80 people are sleeping per room. 2/8/2014
