In Italy, "A propos de notre mission en Palestine", and more


January 2, 2011 - The teargas grenades that killed Jawaher Abu Rahmah were most likely made in the USA. So 11 people were arrested by Israeli police as they protested in front of the residence of the US Ambassador to Israel. Demonstrations and vigils were held in many cities and towns around the world. We had a small but meaningful gathering here in Bethlehem last night. The second Palestinian killed by Israeli soldiers was a 21 year old Mohammad Djarma shot at a checkpoint with soldiers claiming he did not obey orders. There is a lot that we can all do to end this mindless colonial structure and finally bring peace and justice to this troubled Holy Land.

In Italy, "A propos de notre mission en Palestine", and more

Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD

January 2, 2011

Since I will likely not send you any messages in the next 12 days (traveling), I decided to send this message ahead of my trip.

The teargas grenades that killed Jawaher Abu Rahmah were most likely made in the USA. So 11 people were arrested by Israeli police as they protested in front of the residence of the US Ambassador to Israel. Demonstrations and vigils were held in many cities and towns around the world. We had a small but meaningful gathering here in Bethlehem last night. The second Palestinian killed by Israeli soldiers was a 21 year old Mohammad Djarma shot at a checkpoint with soldiers claiming he did not obey orders. There is a lot that we can all do to end this mindless colonial structure and finally bring peace and justice to this troubled Holy Land.

I will be in Italy for 10 days with the following schedule of talks centered around the release of my new book "Popular Resistance in Palestine: A History of Hope and Empowerment" (it is selling very well, see http://www.qumsiyeh.org/popularresistanceinpalestine/ ). The book will be released in the US this week and I am planning a trip to the US in March. An arabic version is ready but I need to take time to find a publisher (and lack time has been our main handicap!).

Rome 3-5 January (no public event)

Genoa 6-7 January (location to be announced)

Pistoia 8 January (16:30, St. George Library in Pistoia)

Florence 9 January (10:00-11:00, St.James Episcopal Church)

Bologna 10 January (18:30-20:30, Centro di Documentazione delle Donne - via del Piombo 7)

Perugia and Sienna 11-12 January (not confirmed)

You may email me if you would like to meet/get together or can help while I am in Italy.

Gazan youth issue manifesto to vent their anger with all sides in the conflict: An anonymous group of students has created a document to express their frustration born of Hamas's violent crackdowns on 'western decadence', the destruction wreaked by Israel's attacks and the political games played by Fatah and the UN

Marrickville Council supports BDS

Bethlehemĺs sister city in Australia again made history by voting to support the Unified Palestinian Call for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions. Marrickville is the first municipality in Australia to take this important step to support human rights and international humanitarian law in Palestine.
