Interview guest John Atick explains the serpentine procedures, checkpoints, travel times, and driving restrictions involved for visits with his own wife and child. It helps that he's an experienced travel guide! He is interviewed by our colleague Steven Low in Lincoln, MA.
Also, we share two articles of note by Gazan thinkers.
First, one by Haidar Eid, titled "Following Kerry’s ‘historic’ speech we need a diplomacy of resistance." The article remarks on the nonsensicality of John Kerry's December 28 speech in which he lamented the death of the so-called two-state solution for the so-called “Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” Eid points out that the term "Israeli-Palestinian conflict" is inappropriate where Israel is infinitely stronger than Palestine and occupies and oppresses it. As regards the dead "solution," it would have been inherently racist, preserving apartheid.
Haidar Eid is Associate Professor of Postcolonial and Postmodern Literature at Gaza's al-Aqsa University. The full article is posted at http://mondoweiss.net/2016/12/following-diplomacy-resistance/.
Second, one by Isra Saleh El-Namy titled "Hamas celebrates 29th anniversary amid local and international challenges Middle East." The article remarks on Fatah's continued intransigence in the face of attempts by Hamas to reconcile.
Isra Saleh El-Nameh is a journalist in Gaza. The full article is posted at http://mondoweiss.net/2017/01/celebrates-anniversary-international/.
