Concerted efforts by all sides are needed to bring a real change on the ground, boost economic growth and provide hope and prospects for Palestinians," said Marina Wes, World Bank Country Director for West Bank and GazaPress Release

[ePalestine] Qantara.de: Expect nothing from Trump (By Sam Bahour and Mousa Jiryis)

Qantara.de

Expect nothing from Trump

While the US continues to turn a blind eye to settlement expansion, the international community and the EU in particular are left with the responsibility of ensuring that everyday life in the Palestinian enclaves does not collapse. Time for a rethink, argue policy analysts Sam Bahour and Mousa Jiryis.

[ePalestine] Al Jazeera Investigations: THE LOBBY (in the UK) - An absolute MUST WATCH!


An absolute MUST WATCH!

If you are a UK citizen, pay close attention. If you are a US citizen, multiply all you see by 100 and wake up already!

Seeing all of the money, the lobbying, the events, the organizing, the trips, etc., and knowing that all the Palestinian side really has is the justice of our cause is really astonishing.

Al Jazeera Investigations: THE LOBBY (in the UK)

http://www.aljazeera.com/investigations/thelobby/

Al Jazeera Investigations exposes how the Israel lobby influences British politics. A six-month undercover investigation reveals how Israel penetrates different levels of British democracy.

(Each episode's link is below and each is less than 30 minutes.)

Episode One: In part one, Al Jazeera Investigations reveals how pro-Israel groups are trying to influence Britain's youth.

Episode Two: In part two, our undercover reporter joins a delegation from the Israeli embassy at last year's Labour Party Conference.
https://youtu.be/Vuk1EhkEctE

Episode Three: In part three, our undercover reporter witnesses a heated conversation between two opposing activists. The evidence raises serious questions about whether accusations of anti-Semitism are used to stifle political debate.
https://youtu.be/L3dn-VV3czc

Episode Four: In part four, the senior political officer at the Israeli embassy in London discusses a potential plot to 'take down' British politicians – including a minster.

[ePalestine] Huffington Post: The Two-State Solution's Silver Bullet

A French version of this article may be found at Le Monde.fr.

Huffington Post

The Two-State Solution's Silver Bullet

If the international community cannot come to recognize the State of Palestine before Trump takes office, the State of Palestine may ultimately be reconstituted from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River.


By Sam Bahour

If the international community, led by the U.S., is serious about preserving the two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the upcoming French-hosted international peace conference is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reframe the way forward. Recognizing the State of Palestine would politically contribute to ending Israel's nearly 50-year military occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. This single act may be the silver bullet to save the two-state solution.

French version in Le Monde.fr at:

«L'ONU doit reconnaître pleinement la Palestine»

Pour le Palestinien Sam Bahour, les participants à la conférence de Paris devront s'engager à soutenir une résolution ferme de l'Organisation pour sauvegarder une solution à deux Etats.

[ePalestine] Huffington Post: A speech on Palestine-Israel awaiting President Obama (By Sam Bahour)

Huffington Post

A speech on Palestine-Israel awaiting President Obama

SECRETARY KERRY: "There are other countries in the UN who believe it is our job to dictate the terms of a solution in the Security Council. Others want us to simply recognize a Palestinian state, absent an agreement. But I want to make clear today, these are not the choices that we will make."

QUESTION: Will the U.S. allow others to make these choices?



​By Sam Bahour

I hesitated before weighing in on the flurry of activity taking place around Israel and Palestine after the U.S. seems to have finally decided to act. I felt that all that needs to be said has been written and rewritten ad infinitum, including by me. That now at the eleventh hour the U.S. seems to be waking up to the reality Israel has created on the ground with unfettered U.S. support over seven decades, struck me at first as anticlimactic. But on deeper reflection and seeing the continuous flow of commentary, I notice that no one has yet mentioned one important and potentially game-changing way of framing this latest development.
