Struggling for Water in Gaza [from Mondoweiss]Leila al-Najar and Ishraq Othman--The Beach camp “Al-shate" is located to the west of Gaza City. Small houses are crowded together with an unbearable smell springing from the wastewater running through the alleys. As volunteers in Youth for the Right of Water and Sanitation project (YRWS) we occasionally visit homes there randomly for our case study on water problems. Residents suffer enormously from serious water problems caused by the Israeli occupation which for years has undertaken exploiting and withdrawing all our pure water resources; groundwater, the Jordan River, the Gaza valley and Lake Tiberius. Thus, all aquifers start to run out and the problem of salty water is increasingly appearing in most houses in Gaza. dn23/10/2011

A State is Born in PalestineRONEN BERGMAN--Sixty-four years ago, in August 1947, the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine presented to the General Assembly a startling and unexpected report, calling for an end to the British Mandate of Palestine and division of most of the territory into two independent states, with the Jewish state occupying the majority of the land. What came next, of course, is well known — a vote in the General Assembly on Nov. 29, 1947, in favor of partition, and the war that immediately followed. The decision is viewed in the Arab world as “the great crime,” and Palestinian leaders, including the current president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, regard it as the original sin that led to the catastrophe, the nakba, that befell their nation — a disaster they now want the General Assembly to remedy. What is not widely known is how a possibly pro-Arab committee, or at least one that was supposed to be neutral, came to issue a report that led directly to the establishment of the state of Israel. What happened on that committee’s trip to Palestine, and how were the minds of its members changed in a way that so radically altered history? dn9/10/2011

Today in Palestine for October 1.2011A compilation of events--[One of the items in the compilation remarks that “An Israeli diplomat says Jerusalem was the Jewish capital when ‘London was a swamp.’ Someone should point out to this diplomat that at that time, Jerusalem was but a tiny speck compared to the expanded Jewish city which continues to expand, now mainly in Palestinian East Jerusalem, swallowing up what is properly a Palestinian entity. Check your maps of Roman times to see how tiny Jerusalem was. Ignorance or an attempt to put one over? Dorothy ] dn2/10/2011
