Hamid Dabashi

Take Putin, Bush, Bashar al-Assad, Benjamin Netanyahu, and a whole gang of kindred thugs together, put a leash around their necks as you dispatch them all to the International Criminal Court and charge them with war crimes, and crimes against humanity. But this juvenile demonisation of an entire culture is pathetic.


None of this justifies Putin’s military adventurism in Ukraine – but the US and its European allies are the last entities on planet earth with any moral authority to point fingers at Russia.

Charles Edward Russell Russell felt very strongly about the well-being of others: “transforming the world…to a place where one can know some peace…some joy of living, some sense of the inexhaustible beauties of the universe in which he has been placed”, was the purpose that inspired his work and his life.


Henry A. Wallace

Following his term as Secretary of Commerce, Wallace became the editor of The New Republic magazine, which he used as a platform to oppose Truman’s foreign policies. On the declaration of the Truman Doctrine in 1947, he predicted it would mark the beginning of “a century of fear”.

Wallace left his editorship position in 1948 to make an unsuccessful run as the Progressive Party‘s presidential candidate in the 1948 U.S. presidential election. With Idaho Democratic Senator Glen H. Taylor as his vice presidential running mate, his platform advocated

universal government health insurance,
an end to the nascent Cold War,
full voting rights for black Americans,
and an end to segregation.

Time magazine, which opposed the Wallace candidacy, described Wallace as “ostentatiously” riding through the towns and cities of the segregated South “with his Negro secretary beside him”.[45] A barrage of eggs and tomatoes were hurled at Wallace and struck him and his campaign members during the tour.

Bertrand Arthur William Russell, (1872 – 1970)

was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, social critic and political activist.

Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism[61][62] and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I.[63] Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament.[64]

A later conviction for publicly lecturing against inviting the US to enter the war on Britain’s side resulted in six months’ imprisonment in Brixton prison (see Bertrand Russell’s views on society) in 1918.[98] While in prison, Russell read enormously, and wrote the book Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy.[99] He was reinstated in 1919, resigned in 1920, was Tarner Lecturer 1926, and became a Fellow again 1944–49.[100][clarification needed]

In 1924, Bertrand again gained press attention when attending a “banquet” in the House of Commons with well-known campaigners, including Arnold Lupton, who had been both a Member of Parliament and had also endured imprisonment for “passive resistance to military or naval service”

In September 1961, at the age of 89, Russell was jailed for seven days in Brixton Prison after taking part in an anti-nuclear demonstration in London, for “breach of peace”. The magistrate offered to exempt him from jail if he pledged himself to “good behaviour”, to which Russell replied: “No, I won’t.”

We, Israelis who wish our country to be safe and just, are appalled and horrified by the massive killing of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza (Reports, 15 May). None of the demonstrators posed any direct danger to the state of Israel or to its citizens. The killing of over 50 demonstrators and the thousands more wounded are reminiscent of the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960 in South Africa. The world acted then. We call upon decent members of the international community to act by demanding that those who commanded such shootings be investigated and tried.

The current leaders of the Israeli government are responsible for the criminal policy of shooting at unarmed demonstrators. The world must intervene to stop the ongoing killing.

Ten years ago, the Guardian published a letter from more than 100 Jewish signatories explaining why we would not be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel. We are now approaching the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, the catastrophe that dispossessed Palestinians from their land and turned three-quarters of a million of them into refugees. And the situation, both within Israel and in the occupied territories, has significantly worsened.

There are now 750,000 Israeli settlers on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem. Palestinians in the West Bank live under an oppressive apartheid system, face demolition of their houses and uprooting of their olive trees, while the settlements expand unchecked. In East Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, the policy of ethnic cleansing continues to be implemented, while the vicious punishment of the civilian population of Gaza is creating a human catastrophe and rendering the territory uninhabitable. Israel itself is a highly segregated society where the non-Jewish minority is viewed as a demographic threat and excluded from full citizenship; where religious fanaticism and repression take greater hold and dissident voices like B’Tselem, Breaking the Silence and the few principled journalists like Gideon Levy and Amira Hass, are attacked, marginalised and delegitimised.


Ten years ago a two-state solution still seemed possible. That chance has now gone. There are no peace negotiations. The peace process is dead. In reality it was never more than an excuse for Israel to consolidate its settlement project. The two-state solution is dead. Both Netanyahu’s government party and the so-called opposition, Zionist Unity, which includes the Israeli Labour party, are in agreement: the settlements will not be removed.

It is surely time to face up to the reality. As Jews, we believe that Israel has no long-term future as an exclusively Jewish state, an apartheid state. The only just solution for both sides is one secular state with equal rights for all.
