Chinese hackers disguised themselves as Iran to target Israel
10 aug. 2021 - When hackers broke into computers across Israel’s government and tech companies, investigators looked for clues to find out who was responsible. The first evidence pointed directly at Iran, Israel’s most contentious geopolitical rival. The hackers deployed tools normally associated with Iranians, for example, and wrote in the Farsi language.

A Mesmerizing Aerial Timelapse Captures the Undulating Patterns of Sheep Herding Near Haifa
28 jun. 2021 - Haifa-based photographer Lior Patel has spent the last seven months immersed in the daily rhythms of sheep. Hovering above the Peace Valley region of Yokneam, he’s documented a single flock’s grazing process in a captivating timelapse that shows the animals racing across the agricultural landscape and down roadways in robust, heaving masses. Shot with a drone, the accelerated footage attests to the drove’s shape-shifting instincts, which resembles other naturally occurring patterns like a flowing current or mesmerizing starling murmurations.

On Queer Palestine and the Intersectional Critique
9 jun. 2021 - I have been wanting for a while now to dedicate one of my instagram-book-posts to Sarah Schulman’s ‘Israel Palestine and the Queer International’ and one to ‘Queer Palestine and the Empire of Critique’ by Dr. Sa’ed Atshan. With selected passages from each book, as I usually do, because there is so much in both books that I know a lot of people can learn from. But with everything that is happening at the moment, I wanted to prioritise making people, especially those in Europe and North America, aware of these books as soon as possible and to not only limit it to an instagram post. I am sure there are many books that you can read / listen to, to inform yourself, but I wanted to highlight these two books that I’ve learned a lot from and spoke to me the most.

Waarom migratiedeals met Turkije en Libië geen goed idee zijn
16 jun. 2021 - Wat de opvang van vluchtelingen en de financiering ervan betreft zijn rijke en arme landen afhankelijk van elkaar. Maar zolang Europa dat niet wil erkennen, hebben landen in de regio geen reden om Europa te vertrouwen. Zijn de migratiedeals wel zo’n goed idee?

De toekomst van de Palestijnen staat op het spel, constateert deze Israëlische socioloog
29 may. 2021 - Vier miljoen Palestijnen maken 20 procent van de bevolking van Israël uit, en hun toekomst staat op het spel. Er is geen sprake van een symmetrisch conflict, maar van extreem geweld van de staat tegen een bevolkingsgroep. Dat is de analyse van de Joods-Israëlische socioloog Hilla Dayan (Universiteit van Amsterdam), die met een groep academici een felle aanklacht uitte tegen de systematische schending van de rechten van Palestijnen.

Shula Keshet strijdt tegen het racisme waarmee Arabische joden te maken hebben
12 sep. 2018 - Naast het conflict met de Palestijnen heerst er in Israël ook onmin tussen joden onderling. Arabische joden hebben beduidend minder kansen dan Europese. In Tel Aviv, waar de tweedeling goed zichtbaar is, strijdt Shula Keshet tegen dit joodse racisme.

America the Unaccountable
20 aug. 2020 - The Trump administration has declared war on the International Criminal Court—the world’s only permanent court whose mandate is to pursue cases of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. President Trump issued an executive order on June 11 that authorizes severe sanctions on ICC employees, as well as the court itself, if it goes forward with planned investigations of alleged war crimes by the US or its allies. (Though not named in the order, Israel is the sole US ally now under ICC scrutiny that fits its terms.)
