A Most UnGenerous Offer

Issue: 2002, Volume 35, Issue 4
Subject: Human Rights|Land and Homes|Oslo|Peace Process
Author: Halper, Jeff
Issue Description: If you look at the blueprint of a prison, it looks like the prisoners own the place. They have 95 percent of the territory. The prisoners have the living areas. They have the cafeteria, the visiting area, the exercise yard. All the prison authorities have is 5 percent: the surrounding walls, the cell bars, a few points of control, the keys to the door. When you consider Israeli Prime Minister’s “generous offer”to the Palestinians at Camp David, keep that prison blueprint in mind.

The Making of Iraq

Subject: History|Iraq|Politics
Author: Simons, Geoff
Issue Description: Geoff Simons has written four books on Iraq, his most recent being “Targeting Iraq: Sanctions and Bombing in US Policy,”published this year. Denis Halliday, former U.N. Assistant Secretary-General and head of the U.N. Humanitarian Program in Iraq, says of this work, “There is no doubt this is an important book.”And The Times of London added: “Books either written or edited by Simons can be bought with confidence.”If ever Americans had a need to know the history of Iraq— “from Sumer to Saddam,”as the title of one of Geoff’s books puts it— that time is at hand.

Subject: Human Rights|Military|War/Conflict
Author: Mahoney, John F.

Today's Via Dolorosa

Issue: 2001, Volume 34, Issue 2
Subject: Christianity|Theology
Author: Dillon, Edward J.
Issue Description: In Ed Dillon's country parish in upstate New York, church members reenact the Stations of the Cross on the Friday before Holy Week.  Tracing the Stations of the Cross has been a pious custom, especially for Latin Catholics, since the time of the Crusades.  The Link asked Pastor Dillon to go to Jerusalem and to construct a modern parable while following the course of the original Via Dolorosa and reflecting on the figures who found themselves there 2,000 years ago.  Who could be cast today as Jesus, Dillon asked himself.  "For those who come to the Holy Land with eyes to see and ears to hear," he writes, "the answer is the Palestinian people."

The Syrian Community on the Golan Heights

Issue: 2000, Volume 33, Issue 2
Subject: Land and Homes|Settlements|Syria
Author: Tarabieh, Bashar
Issue Description: The author of this issue, Bashar Tarabieh, is a member of the Arab Academic Association for Development of the Golan. Bashar presently lives in Atlanta, Georgia. The story he tells in these pages is indeed the untold story of his people’s oppression under foreign occupation. Much has been reported in the U.S. media of what the 17,000 Israeli colonizers on the Golan might lose should negotiations with Syria succeed. But what of the 140,000 Syrians expelled by Israel in 1967, or the 17,000 who remain there today? What about their 33 years of lost freedoms. This is their story.

Author: Amash, Charles; Rantisi, Audeh
Issue Description:

On July 12 [1948] Ramle and Lydda were occupied by Zionist forces and a curfew was imposed. At 11:30 a.m., many Lydda inhabitants, shut up in their houses, took fright at the sudden outbreak of shooting outside.… Some rushed into the streets, only to be cut down by Israeli fire...In the confusion, many unarmed detainees in the detention areas in the center of town – in the mosque and church compounds –were shot and killed.… At 13:30 hours, July 12, before the shooting had completely died down, Operation Dani HQ issued the following order to Yiftah Brigade: “The inhabitants of Lydda must be expelled quickly without attention to age.”--Israeli historian Benny Morris, “The Middle East Journal,”vol. 40, No. 1, Winter 1986, pp. 86-87
