    What happened to the Green Line?

    What happened to the Green Line?

    Last month, a controversy erupted in Israel when the Tel Aviv municipality, in time for the new school year, distributed maps to classrooms that showed the Green Line. Although the 1949 armistice lines that formed Israel's unofficial borders at the cessation of the 1948 war are internationally recognized, in Israel the Green Line is a contentious point, seen as incorrectly demarcating between "Israel proper" and the settlements in the occupied West Bank. Indeed, in sending the maps to schools...

    Excavating Israel's underground settlements

    Archeology is presumed to be a neutral endeavor, a practice of excavation that merely uncovers clues about the past.

That's very much what is happening in Israel-Palestine, and a lot of that is concentrated in East Jerusalem.Until recently, Mizrahi served as the executive director of Emek Shaveh, an Israeli NGO that examines t...

    Resisting Apartheid Behind Israel’s Prison Walls

    Perhaps the most enthralling story in Israel-Palestine last month was the startling escape of six Palestinians from the notorious Gilboa prison, using simple tools like spoons to dig a tunnel out of their cells and on to freedom. Although the prisoners were re-captured several days later, their feat dominated Israeli news headlines and captured the Palestinian popular imagination.To unpack the story, +972 editor Amjad Iraqi interviews attorney Abeer Baker, a Palestinian human rights lawyer ba...

Along with cries of “antisemitism” and “economic terrorism,” the Israeli government has called on U.S. states to sanction the company through domestic laws that effectively punish any boycotts or divestments relating t...
