Whilst Israel's targeting of Palestinian Christians has gone on for decades, it is only following the onslaught on Gaza that many have discovered this reality. Now, people must answer their call for an end to Israel's brutality, writes Daoud Kuttab.
At the UN General Assembly, the Palestinian president emphasised the need for international accountability and a two-state solution. But he didn't address the elephant in the room: a potential Saudi-Israel deal, writes Daoud Kuttab.
From the repeated storming of a Haifa church by Jewish extremists, to attacks on Christians who have been denied entry to sites in Jerusalem whilst wearing a cross, this is all the outcome of Israel’s far-right government, writes Daoud Kuttab.
Israel pays a heavy political price whenever it wages attacks on Palestinian worshippers in Al Aqsa Mosque, but the current extremist Israeli government nevertheless continues to push the boundaries of a historical status quo, writes Daoud Kuttab.
Extreme-right Israeli national security minister Ben Gvir’s recent presence at Al Aqsa cannot be treated as simply a ‘visit’ given his party stands on a platform of ‘taking control’ of Temple Mount, argues Daoud Kuttab.
Following Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the UN where he reinforced the case for a two-state solution, it is time for the US and other member states who support this plan to finally enact it, writes Daoud Kuttab.
In attacking and expelling Palestinians from al-Aqsa during Ramadan, Israeli forces and settlers have violated the status quo at the holy site and disrespected the sanctity of the mosque, writes Daoud Kuttab.
