  • Palestinian steadfastness and Hamas tactics have thwarted Israel's goals

    There is no dispute about Hamas’ ability to survive, despite more than nine months of fighting against Israel. The occupation state has to admit that it has not achieved any of its goals. More than 38,000 Palestinians have been killed, and almost 100,000 more have been wounded. Nevertheless, Hamas and...

  • I fear for the survival of Lebanon

    Let me make it clear: I do not defend any of the warring Lebanese parties, and I examine them solely for the sake of analysis and fact-finding. However, like many Arabs, I fear for the survival of Lebanon and its people and wish them the best. It is unnatural for...

  • Gaza gets ready to greet Eid with hunger, bombs and bullets

    It is probably fair to say that most of the world’s population stands in solidarity with the bombed and besieged Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. As Eid al-Fitr approaches to signal the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, people are wondering how to celebrate the festival. Many...

  • Jordan's security is a red line, Hamas says

    The Islamic resistance group Hamas thanked Jordan’s King Abdullah II for his position in support of the Palestinians, specifically the Gaza Strip. In a letter sent to Jordanian officials, the movement said that Jordan’s security is a red line, and “we must turn the page on any misunderstanding or disagreement”. Hamas’s...

  • There’s a big difference between legitimate resistance and terrorism

    Israel and some Arab states have regarded Hamas consistently as being in the same league as ISIS/Daesh, despite major differences in their make-up. The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement’s position on ISIS/Daesh is clear, just as it is in relation to followers of other nominally Islamic organisations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin...

  • ‘Bleeding Dirt’: A drama series about the Palestinian resistance

    Resistance to Israeli colonialism was the central focus of the Palestinian drama series, “Bleeding Dirt” (“Nazeef Al-Turaab”), set in the post-Oslo Convention era. The series addresses the daily challenges, injustices and human rights violations facing Palestinians under the brutal Zionist occupation. It highlights the resilience, courage and determination of...

  • Are Jordan’s Islamists boycotting the election or investing in what is happening around us?

    It appears that the Muslim Brotherhood and its political wing in Jordan, known as the Islamic Action Front (IAF), are considering boycotting the parliamentary election scheduled for the end of this year, amid speculation about what the situation in Gaza will lead to. The Islamists, who are at the forefront...

  • Palestinian intelligence man Faraj as governor of Gaza? Why, when and how?

    As soon as the Hebrew media announced that Major General Majed Faraj, the head of intelligence in the Palestinian Authority, was working to establish an armed force in southern Gaza, questions began to arise about the role of the PA and its intelligence director and what they intend to...

  • Israel has a culture of lying, but its days are numbered

    Lying in Israel is part of the culture. In fact, we could call it the lying industry. It is the most requested commodity, and whoever wants to tell the truth is seen as part of the frustration industry. The Zionist lies are based on the fact that neither the political...

  • Neturei Karta, the Zionist presence and the occupation of Palestine

    In light of the escalating events in the Gaza Strip since 7 October, a Jewish group called Neturei Karta condemned what the Israelis are doing and supported the people of the Strip in their defence of their rights. As a result, some of its members have been assaulted by...

  • Is Israel a Nazi state or a colonial state?

    Israel’s trend, at the political and popular levels, towards the extreme right has become clear since the beginning of the last decade. Following the return of the Likud Party to power in 2009, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, it rose with a Nazi political approach. In recent years, these forces have...

  • Empty streets as Jordan strikes in support of Gaza

    Jordanians responded to calls for a global strike in support of Gaza today, and to demand an end to Israel’s genocidal bombing campaign, with shops remaining closed today and streets left empty. Markets, which are normally bustling with sellers and shoppers were abandoned, with shops closed and shopkeepers posting those...

  • A question has surfaced again: Why has Iran failed Hamas?

    Any bet on Iran in the war on Gaza is no longer useful in light of the negative Iranian position despite the new relationship with Hamas. Any assessment of this position is considered disastrous, as the ceiling of the conflict with Washington, the West or the Zionist state will...

  • Between shock and resistance: popular participation and the consequences of the war on Gaza

    The question about the impact of the war that Israel is waging on the Arab peoples these days seems ridiculous and irrelevant, as we see the bloody and brutal consequences of this bombing campaign and the successive setbacks of Arab positions. The barrels of explosives that the Zionist aircraft drop...

  • Talking about the future of Gaza is based on an unrealistic assumption

    The Zionist entity state has not tired of presenting scenarios and options for the future of the Gaza Strip since the start of the ongoing war on 7 October. Despite its faltering, the battle has not yet been resolved, nor has it achieved a tangible victory on the ground. The...

  • What about Abu Ubaida’s call on Jordan to escalate popular mass action?

    In his speech on Thursday, the official spokesperson for the Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Ubaida, called on the Jordanian people to escalate all forms of popular and mass resistance action, saying: “You, our people in Jordan, are the nightmare of the occupation that fears your movement and strives tirelessly to...
