Israel’s narrative on the Gaza attacks continues to be echoed by US media, but this shows the settler colonial state’s weakness. There's a fear of Palestinians' growing impact as they organise & are vocal across US society, writes Leila Farsakh.
Israel’s Jewish Nation-State Law has been paved with more annexation of Palestinian land and apartheid policies, reinforcing the impossibility of a two-state solution and need for Palestinians to abandon the partition paradigm, writes Leila Farsakh.
