By Na'ima B. Robert When I heard about Nelson Mandela's death in the early hours of the morning of December 5, via a message on Viber, the only way I could describe the way I felt was numb.

Israeli Apartheid | Introduction

Apartheid is a term which stirs strong emotions in the Western psyche; by exposing Israel as a perpetrator of this crime one has a much higher chance of changing public opinion towards the Zionist state. This has also allowed activists to structure their strategies in a similar fashion to the anti-apartheid movement of the 1980’s.

By forcing our governments to change their unequivocal support of Israel, we have the greatest chance of aiding an end to the conflict. Read More »

Boycott Israeli Dates

I was shocked to learn that Israel is a major producer and exporter of dates to the European market! They are grown in the Jordan Valley, West Bank, and are the most profitable crop of the illegal Israeli settlers, who exploit the desperate poverty of their Palestinian workers – including children – with appalling working conditions.
