Rolling in underground tunnelsSlavoj Žižek - Mondoweiss - Today in Gaza, the Israeli military is fighting not only in underground tunnels, but also against the natives of the land. They are fighting not only against Hamas, but also against Palestine itself. They --alongside the West-- are fighting against a nation that they have tried to expel from the land for almost 70 years now. They are fighting not only because of these tunnels, but also and precisely to conquer the land within which the tunnels were dug.-rh28/8/2014

Resistance and Tear GasSaeeda Al-Rashid - IMEMC News - “The word ‘apartheid’ is often used to criticize Israeli racism and the Israeli state’s policies of segregation. But on the street level, what does apartheid actually look like? While living in occupied Khalil under Israeli military occupation for a few months, I experienced only the beginning of the answer to those questions. The rest is in the lived experience of businessmen and women, school children, farmers and shepherds who have lived under occupation for forty-plus years” [ry]25/8/2014

Palestinians, Europeans support reopening Rafah crossingDaoud Kuttab - Al-Monitor - With or without the movement of goods, the reopening of Rafah on a 24-hour basis after the implementation of a permanent cease-fire would have a profound effect on the besieged residents of Gaza, who would consider it the most visible sign that the war and the siege of Gaza are finally over.-rh 21/8/2014
In 2008 Israel Agreed to a Protocol for the Port of Gaza : Why not now?Paul Larudee - Dissidentvoice - In short, there is nothing in the Hamas demands that Israel cannot accept and has not already accepted in similar circumstances, as long as international monitors are placed in charge of implementing agreed protocols for control and security. This is a common sense solution that can meet the requirements of all concerned and allow Gaza to develop itself in ways that are well established in the rest of the world.-rh 21/8/2014
How a Palestinian turned airstrikes into artLauren Hansen - The Week - It`s a harsh reality for those living in the war zone. But 27-year-old Tawfik Gebreel, who lives in Gaza, chooses to find some hope among the wreckage. The Palestinian architect and artist turns photos from the conflict into inspirational portraits of serenity, love, and strength. Using Photoshop, Gebreel manipulates plumes of black smoke into a father playing with his child, a fist emerging from ruins, and a stallion rearing above the crumbling cityscape.-rh20/8/2014

New Gaza truce holding after shaky startMaan News - After days of shuttle diplomacy, the agreement clinched by Egypt ushered in what is potentially the longest period of calm in the five-week conflict and will allow more time for talks on the thorniest issues that separate the two sides, the Palestinians said.-rh 14/8/2014
As war with Israel shatters lives, more Gazans question Hamas decisionsSudarsan Raghavan - The Washington Post - So, after more than a month of war and devastation, Abu Halool speaks words that once seemed unthinkable: He says that although he despises Israel, he also blames Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups for his woes.-rh13/8/2014

Gazans return to their neighborhoods — and find them decimatedSwati Sharma - The Washington Post - Another cease-fire took effect between Israeli forces and Hamas in Gaza, allowing many residents to venture back to their homes. Many found their houses in ruins and tried to salvage any belongings that might have survived the fighting. Others took the time to search for any victims buried in the piles of rubble. Intense airstrikes and ground attacks have taken a huge toll on many towns in the region. Here is a look at Gaza almost a month after Israel began Operation Protective Edge.-rh6/8/2014
