With Orwell to the West Bank

Posted by Marte Heian-Engdal on Tuesday, 28 February 2017

The United States under President Trump is not the only place where the rule of law is currently being put to the test. In early February hundreds of Israeli police officers battled on the West Bank with hundreds of determined young protesters armed with stones. Sixteen police officers were injured ... Read more »

A Bug in the System

Posted by Marte Heian-Engdal on Friday, 2 September 2016

Palestine does not exist on the map and is also not easy to find in the jam-packed schedules of diplomats working with the Middle East. A Twitter storm was unleashed a couple of weeks ago when rumours spread among pro-Palestinian activists that Google had removed Palestine from its mapping service. ... Read more »

A Predicted Tragedy

Posted by Jacob Høigilt on Tuesday, 27 October 2015

The last time that the Palestinians staged a collective uprising in anger and frustration was in 2000. Why is there a new wave of violence now?

Earlier this summer, before the war broke out in Gaza, ... Read more »

Israel and Hamas are Both Just Winging It

Posted by Erica Chenoweth on Tuesday, 5 August 2014

Israel is more than three weeks into Operation Protective Edge. With over 1328 Palestinians and 59 Israelis dead, numerous commentators have weighed in on what each side hopes to gain from the current violence. On the Israeli side, the stated military goal is to permanently diminish Hamas’ capacity and willingness ... Read more »

Diplomatic and Real Realities in the Israel-Palestine Conflict

Posted by Jacob Høigilt on Friday, 25 October 2013

Over the last few years I have encountered a number of professional Western diplomats who express their disbelief in any serious Israeli intention of achieving peace with the Palestinians. To be sure, these diplomats also fault the Palestinian leadership for their ability to bungle almost any initiative and opportunity they ... Read more »
