About This Issue
This is Jonathan Cook’s fifth feature article for The Link. Previous articles included: “Israeli Palestinians: The Unwanted Who Stayed” (2008), “Publish It Not” (2010), “Welcome to Nazareth” (2013), and “The Art of Resistance” (2015).
A former staff journalist at The Guardian and The Observer in England, Jonathan now lives with his family in Nazareth where he works as a freelance journalist. In 2011, he received the Martha Gellhorn Special Award for his work on the Middle East.
When we approached Jonathan to write about the Canaan Fair Trade project, we said we thought it was one of the few hopeful signs on the Palestinian horizon. He agreed.
On page 14 of the PDF, we tell how you can help the Canaan project — and how it can help you with your holiday shopping.
On page 15 of the PDF, Nada Sneige Fuleihan reviews Timothy Niedermann’s recent novel “Wall of Dust
”. Seldom does The Link select novels for review but, in this case, we thought the story was both a “page-turner” and an insightful, readable primer on the Palestinian impasse.
Also on page 15, we note the passing of a longtime friend and A.M.E.U. supporter, the much beloved Arab-American diplomat and scholar Clovis Maksoud
On page 16 of the PDF, is our “Gift Subscription” form. For $20, half the recommended cost, we will send a year’s subscription to The Link, along with recent A.M.E.U. publications, to the person or persons you enroll.
Finally, a reminder: All of Jonathan Cook’s past Links
, indeed all of our issues going back to 1968, are available on our website: www.ameu.org. After you read this issue, go online and tell us what you think about it.
