Wednesday 15 March 2017

Published on 9 Mar 2017, on B’Tselem Website.

Since September 2000, Israel has maintained a “buffer zone” along the fence with Gaza, inside Gaza’s territory.

Over the years, the military has occasionally changed the range of the area it considers off-limits to Palestinians, from 100 to 500 meters away from the fence.

Gaza, or the “drip-fed hope” (Analysis and debate)

Monday 27 June 2016 by Geoffrey Bailleux

In memory of Marah Diab [2]

For a moment, just imagine yourself in Gaza. You live in a city on its knees, in an isolated and narrow strip of land with another 1.8 million fellow citizens. 360 square kilometers of prison, no more. Your children still bear the scars of several wars in their minds - some on their bodies - as well as the harrowing memory of the bombs - including phosphorus bombs - from the summer of 2014.

Community under Attack: The Situation of the Human Rights of the Bedouin Community in the Negev-Nagab 2015 (Testimony)

Friday 18 December 2015 by Dukium

Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality | In 1997, a group of concerned Arab
and Jewish residents of the Negev (Israel’s southern desert region) established the Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality (NCF) to provide a framework for JewishArab collaborative efforts in the struggle for civil equality and the advancement of mutual tolerance and coexistence. NCF, also known as “Dukium” (“co-existence” in Hebrew), is unique in being the only Arab-Jewish organization that remains focused solely on the specific problems confronting the Negev. NCF considers that the State of Israel fails to respect, protect and fulfill its human rights obligations, without discrimination, towards the Arab-Bedouin citizens in the Negev. As a result, the NCF has set as one of its goals the achievement of full civil rights and equality for all people who make the Negev their home.

Je suis la dignité d’un peuple colonisé, opprimé, spolié, assassiné en silence, et j’ai un rêve
