The creation of a museum or archive is always a political act. At its worst, this act can be a move to relegate a people and culture to the historical past and put them on display for popular consumption, often as a product of colonial conquest. But museums and archives can be important tools in the struggle for decolonization and liberation as well. Here, they are about reaching into the past in order to support contemporary struggles and build alternative futures. About the speakers:  Faisal Saleh is founder and executive Director of Palestine Museum US, a 6,000 square foot exhibit space dedicated to preserving Palestinian cultural history and telling the Palestinian story through the arts. Salim Abuthaher is a Palestinian academic and Acting Manager for The Palestinian Museum Digital Archive Project. His recent research interests are focused on indigenous studies, modern socioeconomic history, everyday space-time interactions, and urban political economy of Palestine and the MENA region. Nur Arafeh is currently working on her PhD in Economic Development at the University of Oxford. This event was hosted the Institute of Palestine Studies as part of their webinar series on ‘Active Palestinian Archives: Preserving Palestinian Culture and Heritage’, and we thank them for allowing us to use the audio of this webinar.

Apartheid is a name for a type of regime and an international crime. The crime of apartheid has a clear definition, and although its origin is historically linked to the racist regime in South Africa, it is now an independent legal concept. In 2020, Yesh Din, an Israeli human rights organisation commissioned human rights lawyer Michael Sfard to produce a legal opinion on the prevailing in the occupied Palestinian West Bank. The conclusion of this legal opinion is that the crime against humanity of apartheid is indeed being committed by the Israeli state, and the victims of this crime are the indigenous Palestinians. About the speakers Sharona Weiss is Head of International Advocacy Department with the Israeli human rights organisation Yesh Din. Michael Sfard is an Israeli lawyer with expertise in international humanitarian law and international human rights law. Munir Nuseibah is a Palestinian academic expert on transitional justice and humanitarian law, and Director of the Community Action Center at the Al-Quds University.

The speakers address aspects of Israel’s illegal policies, including the withholding of bodies, arbitrary detention, collective punishment against Palestinian prisoners, detainees, and their families, residency revocation, and punitive house demolitions. They also highlight Israel’s use of various forms of collective punishment with the intention of maintaining an apartheid regime over the Palestinian people as a whole. One of the contributors, UN Special Rapporteur, Prof. Michael Lynk, introduced his report to the Human Rights Council, which report focuses on the illegality of collective punishment. In his presentation, Prof. Lynk, warned that “like torture, there are no permissible exceptions to the use of collective punishment in law. And, like torture, the use of collective punishment flouts law and morality, dignity and justice, and stains all those who practice it.” Speakers: Michael Lynk - UN Special rapporteur on human rights in Palestine Rania Muhareb - Legal Researcher and Advocacy Officer, Al-Haq Munir Nuseibah - General Director, Community Action Center in Al-Quds University Budour Hassan - Legal researcher, Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center Sahar Francis - General Director, Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association.

Despite major differences in the regimes of oppression and discrimination in the US and Israel, certain parallels exist and serve to shed light on both systems. In the case of the US and Israel, the connections go beyond analogies and extend to material links between the respective security states and policing practices, including what has been called the "Israelization" of policing. About the speakers Nadia Abu El-Haj is the Ann Olin Whitney Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Chair of the BoD, SOF/Heyman Center for the Humanities, and Co-Director of the Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University. She is the author of two books and several journal articles published on topics ranging from the history of archaeology in Palestine to the question of race and genomics today. Johanna Fernández teaches at the Department of History at Baruch College (CUNY). She is the writer, producer of the film, Justice on Trial: the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Her Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) lawsuit against the NYPD, led to the recovery of the largest repository of police surveillance records in the country. Maha Nassar is an Associate Professor in the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies at the University of Arizona and the author of Brothers Apart: Palestinian Citizens of Israel and the Arab World (Stanford University Press, 2017). Nahla Abdo is a Palestinian-Canadian political activist and Professor of Sociology at Carleton University. She is the author of several publications, most recently Captive Revolution: Palestinian women’s Anti-Colonial Struggle Within the Israeli Prison System.

The book poses a question to contemporary Palestinian writers: what might your home city look like in the year 2048 – exactly 100 years after Nakba, the displacement of more than 700,000 people? The result: contemporary Palestinian writers offering their own spin on the science fiction and fantasy genre. Covering a range of approaches – from SF noir, to nightmarish dystopia, to high-tech farce – these stories use the blank canvas of the future to reimagine the Palestinian experience today. Along the way, we encounter drone swarms, digital uprisings, time-bending VR, peace treaties that span parallel universes, and even a Palestinian superhero, in the first anthology of science fiction from Palestine. Hear one of the contributors to this groundbreaking new collection of science-fiction stories, British Palestinian writer, Selma Dabbagh and the editor, Basma Ghalayini, as they discuss an anthology that uses possible futures as a vehicle for exploring the politics of the present.

This podcast is a recording of the talk by the acclaimed Israeli historian where he discussed a book which has been called “critical for understanding the present situation and looking forward to possible solutions”. About the Book Shortlisted for the Palestine Book Awards 2017 From the author of the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine – the seminal study of the 1948 Nakba and the violent creation of the State of Israel – comes an incisive look at the Occupied Palestinian Territories, picking up the story where that book left off. In this comprehensive exploration of one of the world’s most prolonged and tragic conflicts, Pappe uses recently declassified archival material to analyse the motivations and strategies of the generals and politicians – and the decision-making process itself – that laid the foundation of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. From a survey of the legal and bureaucratic infrastructures that were put in place to control the population of over one million Palestinians, to the security mechanisms that vigorously enforced that control, Pappe paints a picture of what is to all intents and purposes the world’s largest ‘open prison’.

The event took place on 28th February 2019 in Dublin. About ‘Cracks in the Wall’ After decades of occupation and creeping annexation, Israel has created an apartheid, one state reality in historic Palestine. Peace efforts have failed because of one, inconvenient truth: the Israeli maximum on offer does not meet the Palestinian minimum, or the standards of international law. But while the situation on the ground is bleak, Ben White argues that there are widening cracks in Israel’s traditional pillars of support. Opposition to Israeli policies and even critiques of Zionism are growing in Jewish communities, as well as amongst Western progressives. The election of Donald Trump has served as a catalyst for these processes, including the transformation of Israel from a partisan issue into one that divides the US establishment. Meanwhile, the Palestinian-led boycott campaign is gathering momentum, prompting a desperate backlash by Israel and its allies. With sharp analysis, Ben White says now is the time to plot a course that avoids the mistakes of the past – a way forward beyond apartheid in Palestine. The solution is not partition and ethnic separation, but equality and self-determination – for all. About the Author Ben White is a journalist and analyst, who has been visiting and writing about Palestine for over a decade. His books include Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy (Pluto, 2011), Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide (Pluto, 2014), and Cracks in the Wall: Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel (Pluto, 2018). His articles have been published by the Guardian, Independent, Newsweek Middle East, and many others. Ben is a frequent guest expert on Al Jazeera, and is a contributor for Al-Shabaka: The Palestinian Policy Network.

Ms. Touma-Sliman discussed the passage of Israel’s new apartheid ‘Nation State’ law in the context of the growth of rightwing extremism in Israel’s domestic and foreign policy, and the efforts to resist this trend. This was a rare opportunity to hear first-hand from someone who opposes Israeli state racism, apartheid and militarism from within the very corridors of power. In July 2018 Israel passed the so-called ‘Nation State Law’, a racist law designed to officially assign second class status to Palestinian citizens of Israel, and to deny their claim to their homeland. It has been widely described and decried as enshrining apartheid inside the state of Israel, where previously Israel had sought to hide official discrimination behind a liberal veneer. This slipping of the mask is just the latest in a long line escalating measures designed to marginalise Palestinians, whichever side of the Green Line they live on – from the shooting of unarmed protestors in Gaza, to the demolition of villages in the West Bank and Negev, to the crackdown on anti-occupation civil society groups. Meanwhile there has been an uptick in Israeli airstrikes in neighbouring countries and sabre-rattling against Iran and Lebanon. All of these are a legacy of the exponential growth of far right political parties and movements inside Israel over the past two decades, and the continued impunity which Israel enjoys abroad, something now amplified by Trump’s rise to power in the US. About the speaker Aida Touma-Sliman MK is a Palestinian member of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) where she heads the Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality. She was elected in 2015 for the Joint List, the coalition of Arab and leftwing parties. She was born in Nazareth into a Christian Palestinian family and earned a B.A. in psychology and Arabic literature from the University of Haifa. Touma-Sliman founded the Arab feminist group Women Against Violence in 1992. She joined the Hadash party, later becoming editor-in-chief of Al-Ittihad, an Arabic language newspaper. She became the first female member of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel and co-founded the International Women’s Commission for a Just Palestinian-Israeli Peace. In July 2018, following the passage of the ‘Nation State Law’, she penned an article for The Guardian newspaper entitled ‘Netanyahu will be known as the first prime minister of Israeli apartheid’.

Every year, hundreds of Palestinian minors undergo the same scenario. Israeli security forces pick them up on the street or at home in the middle of the night, then handcuff and blindfold them and transport them to interrogation, often subjecting them to violence en route. Exhausted and scared – some having spent a long time in transit, some having been roused from sleep, some having had nothing to eat or drink for hours – the minors are then interrogated. Completely alone, cut off from the world, without a lawyer or other guardian present they are interrogated in manner that often involves threats, verbal abuse and physical violence. Its sole purpose is to get the minors to ‘confess’ or provide ‘information’ about others. They are then taken to the military court for a remand hearing. In the vast majority of cases, the military judges approve remand, even when the only evidence against the minors is their own confession. These military courts, which are only used to try Palestinians, have a 99.7% conviction rate and have been repeatedly criticised by human rights groups as failing to meet international standards for a fair trial. The facts and figures all demonstrate that the rights of Palestinian minors’ are being regularly and systematically violated by Apartheid Israel. About the Speaker Nery Ramati is an attorney and partner in Gaby Lasky and Partners Law Office, a leading human rights office in Israel, specializing in freedom of expression and protest, and Ahed Tamimi’s lawyers. He has been representing Palestinian, Israeli and international human rights and anti-occupation activists in Israel’s military (Occupied Palestinian Territories) and civil (State of Israel) courts for almost a decade. Mr. Ramati has been representing leading human rights defenders and activists from the Palestinian villages of the popular struggle movement, such as Bi’ilin, Nabi Saleh, Beit Ummar, Qadom and others.  One of his most important achievements is raising the awareness worldwide on the issues of the ill-treatment of the Palestinian minors (children) in the military court system.

Jerusalem is a city with one of the most disputed international borders in the world running through it. Nevertheless, it has been proclaimed as both the undivided, eternal capital of Israel and of Palestine. However, while ‘Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian people’ is a rhetorical phrase, ‘Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish people’ is not simply rhetoric, but the lived, concrete reality which Palestinian Jerusalemites must navigate through. This seminar examines how Jerusalem, contrary to the lived reality, is imagined as unitary and how it is presented as such to the international community. It looks at how tourism and archaeology have been used to create myths and to practice unseeing and denial of the very real borders within Jerusalem. It particularly examines how they have been used in the ‘City of David’, a tourist site which was the original site of Jerusalem. Finally we ask what these myths mean to those Jerusalemites considered a ‘demographic threat’ to the imagined city. About the speaker: David Landy is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, Trinity College and director of the MPhil in Race, Ethnicity and Conflict. His main research interests are in race & ethnicity, and transnational social movements, particularly with regard to Israel/Palestine. He is the author of "Jewish Identity and Palestinian Rights: Diaspora Jewish Opposition to Israel', and recently organised a conference in Trinity College on 'Freedom of Speech and Higher Education: The Case of the Academic Boycott of Israel’. This event was hosted by Xborders: Accord.

INFO: A recording of the launch of Irish journalist David Cronin’s new book, ‘Balfour’s Shadow: A Century of British Support for Zionism and Israel’ (Pluto, 2017) in Dublin on Monday 23rd October 2017. About the Book “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.” This is the infamous Balfour Declaration, which began one hundred years of conflict with the Palestinian people. Penned in 1917 by British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, these words had an immense impact on history that still emanates a century later. In the controversial, fast-paced Balfour’s Shadow, David Cronin traces the story of the rhetorical and practical assistance that Britain has given to the Zionist movement and the state of Israel since that day. Skillfully and engagingly written, Balfour’s Shadow uses previously unreleased sources and archives to reveal a new side to an old story. Cronin focuses on important historical events such as the Arab Revolt, the Nakba and establishment of the state, the ‘56 and ‘67 wars, the Cold War, and controversial public figures like Tony Blair. Marking the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Cronin provides a fascinating take on this oft-maligned, important history. About the author David Cronin is an Irish journalist and author who reports on the EU from Brussels. He has written for The Irish Times, The Guardian, Inter Press Service, TheJournal.ie, Electronic Intifada and others. His previous books include Corporate Europe: How Big Business Sets Policies on Food, Climate and War (Pluto, 2013) and Europe’s Alliance with Israel: Aiding the Occupation (Pluto, 2010).
