Israeli Palestinian Conflict

Quick, Pick a Side, Israel or Palestine?

Apparently we are presented with two monochromatic sides of this argument, Team Israel vs. Team Gaza, and failure to select one on the basis of who is or is not a terrorist means that your opinion is unlikely to rear its humdrum head in mainstream news or grant you a few thousand followers on Twitter.

As the conflict in Gaza continues, it has become apparent that the Western world has a propensity to attempt to view war through the simplistic prism of 'good' and 'evil'... we seek to condemn and blame one side, whilst reconciling ourselves with the actions of the other.

The Tricycle Theatre Scandal: No One Expected the Spanish Inquisition

Does anyone believe that the good people of the Tricycle harbour a 19th Century hatred of Jews as a racial enemy to be destroyed, as professed by Houston Stuart Chamberlain, Adolf Hitler or the Hamas Charter? Notwithstanding an eccentric auntie or two, I would say that the answer to that is no.

Gaza: Should TV Media Coverage Always Be 'Impartial'?

What Israel is doing to Gaza is sickening. This civilised, westernised, democratic state is lobbing bombs into a city centre packed with people, with seemingly little regard for who dies: little children, disabled people, old ladies, pregnant women - anyone is fair game.

Hacks Bleed, Too

As the graveyards of Gaza overflow, spats between journalists over how this most deadly and one-sided conflict should be reported might seem an irrelevance. But Jon Snow of Channel 4 News took to YouTube to editorialise his personal horror at what he'd witnessed when the children of Palestine failed to find shelter from Israel's tanks and jets.

The NUS Should Be Ashamed of Their 'Israel Boycott'

It is with great disappointment to note that the National Union of Students' Executive Council voted to join the call demanding sanctions against the State of Israel. If anyone stands for the welfare of all students on campus, they should condemn this petty and divisive action in the strongest terms.

The press is awash with the brutality of this world. Since I was a little girl the big topic has always been peace in the Middle East... When we become so inured to blood and gore and it fails to move us, there is the risk of being permanently desensitised.

Protesters Shut Down Israeli Hip-Hopera at the Edinburgh Fringe. I'm Not Sure How I feel About This.

My thoughts on this have been very mixed. I too have very strong views on Israel's aggression towards Palestine. But I find myself questioning whether picketing a small hip hop show at an arts festival is the best way to make a demonstration. Does the theatre company's receipt of a government grant really make them complicit in the assault on Gaza?
