Palestinian Keffiyeh Scarves

Traditionally worn by Palestinian peasants, the keffiyeh became a symbol of Palestinian nationalism during the Arab Revolt of the 1930s. Its prominence increased in the 1960s with the beginning of the Palestinian resistance movement, and in the late 1980s it became a potent symbol of resistance during the First Intifada.

These keffiyehs were made in the last keffiyeh factory in Palestine, the Hirbawi Textile Factory, located in Hebron (Al-Khalil), and are available in both black and white and red and white patterns.

Watch an Al Jazeera documentary about the the Hirbawi factory by clicking here.

IPSC Christmas Cards - The Wall

Imagine the bewilderment of the three wise men if they tried to bring their gifts to Bethlehem today. Their path would be blocked by Israel’s Apartheid Wall and it’s doubtful if they would be allowed through the checkpoints.

The full colour image was painted by Irish artist Colm Mac Athlaoich. Inside the card, on the bottom left it says: “The image portrays the three wise men obstructed on their journey by the ‘apartheid’ wall being built by Israel on Palestinian land. This illegal structure acts as a prison wall, blocking the aspiration of all Palestinians to freedom and self-determination.”

On the right is a simple greeting in Irish and English: Nollaig Shona / Happy Christmas. Each pack contains ten cards.

The cards are A6 size, printed on high-quality card, with envelopes included.

Sending this card will let your friends and family know what’s happening in Palestine, reminding them how Israel’s Apartheid Wall is strangling Bethlehem – the spiritual home
of Christmas.

DVD - Roadmap to Apartheid

rmapstoreThere are many lessons to draw from the South African experience of Apartheid relevant to conflicts all over the world. The film Roadmap to Apartheid explores in detail the apartheid comparison as it is used in the enduring Israel-Palestine conflict. As much an historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid, the film shows us why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them.

Featuring interviews with South Africans, Israelis and Palestinians, Roadmap to Apartheid winds its way through the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and inside Israel moving from town to town and issue to issue to show why the apartheid analogy is being used with increasing potency. It analyzes the similar historical narratives of the Jewish people and the Afrikaaners to the tight relationship the two governments shared during the apartheid years, and everything in between. The effectiveness of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that helped end apartheid in South Africa is also compared to its effectiveness in the Israeli context to end the occupation, and bring justice and dignity to all.

BOOK: 'Cracks in the Wall: Beyond Apartheid in Palestine/Israel' by Ben White

After decades of occupation and creeping annexation, Israel has created an apartheid system in historic Palestine. Peace efforts have failed because of one hard truth: the best Israeli offers do not meet the minimum that a truly free Palestine would require—nor that international law would recognize. There are, however, widening cracks in Israel’s traditional pillars of support for this policy, and in this book Ben White lays them out. Opposition to Israeli policies, he shows, are growing within Jewish communities and among Western progressives, while the rise of populist movements around the world has confused traditional party lines on the question and the Palestinian-led boycott campaign continues to gain momentum. Now, White argues, is the time to plot a course to avoid the mistakes of the past—to create a real way forward, and beyond apartheid, in Palestine.

Reviews

  • “…the most revealing study of the historical background of the conflict and the current peace agreement. ”
  • “Norman Finkelstein is one of the most radical and hard-hitting critics of the official Zionist version of the Arab-Israeli conflict and of the historians who support this version. … The book makes a major contribution to the study of the Arab-Israeli conflict which deserves to be widely read, especially in the United States. ”
  • “Anyone interested in seeing justice brought to the Middle East must read this book. ”
  • “…this thoroughly documented book is guaranteed to stimulate and provoke. It will be required reading in the continuing war of the historians. ”
  • “…a thought-provoking work which calls into question many of the accepted ‘truths’ associated with the Israel-Palestine conflict. ”

Book: 'War Against the People Israel, the Palestinians and Global Pacification' by Jeff Halper

warpplModern warfare has a new form. The days of international combat are fading. So how do major world powers maintain control over their people today?

War Against the People (Pluto, 2015) is a disturbing insight into the new ways world powers such as the US, Israel, Britain and China forge war today. It is a subliminal war of surveillance and whitewashed terror, conducted through new, high-tech military apparatuses, designed and first used in Israel against the Palestinian population. Including hidden camera systems, sophisticated sensors, information databases on civilian activity, automated targeting systems and, in some cases, unmanned drones, it is used to control the very people the nation’s leaders profess to serve.

Drawing from years of research, as well as investigations and interviews conducted at international arms fairs, Jeff Halper reveals that this practice is much more insidious than was previously thought. As Western governments tighten the grip on their use of private information and claw back individual liberties, War Against the People is a timely reminder that fundamental human rights are being compromised for vast sections of the world, and that this is a subject that should concern everyone.

Book: 'The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza' by Max Blumenthal

51daywBest-selling author Max Blumenthal reports on Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza in July 2014 in The 51 Day War (Verso, 2015).

Beginning July 8, 2014, Israel launched air strikes and a ground invasion of Gaza that lasted fifty-one days, leaving over 2,000 people dead, the vast majority of whom were civilians. During the assault, at least 10,000 homes were destroyed and, according to the United Nations, nearly 300,000 Palestinians were displaced.

Max Blumenthal was on the ground during what he argues was an entirely avoidable catastrophe. In this explosive work of reportage, Blumenthal reveals the harrowing conditions and cynical deceptions that led to the ruinous war. Here, for the first time, Blumenthal unearths and presents shocking evidence of atrocities he gathered in the rubble of Gaza.

Published 2015

Reviews

  • “Max Blumenthal’s new book about this Israeli attack [is] so compelling, so necessary … It humanizes this event like nothing else I’ve read … The book is filled with very well-documented history, facts and statistics relevant to what the Israeli military calls Operation Protective Edge. And all of those are both interesting and important.”
  • “This will be the definitive history of the Israeli war of 2014 against Gaza. Blumenthal has once again demonstrated his devotion to truth and justice.”
  • “Max Blumenthal audaciously takes in-your-face, on-the-ground journalism into the realm of geopolitics.”
  • “To really understand what happened, read Max Blumenthal’s The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza. His concision and clarity are established in the introduction”
  • “Max Blumenthal has spent the last decade transforming himself into one of the most vital voices in journalism today, always speaking truth to power with fearlessness and integrity. As with his previous books, The 51 Day War is sure to be talked about for years to come.”

Book: 'The Political Economy of Israel's Occupation: Repression Beyond Exploitation' by Shir Hever

The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories since 1967 has many important economic aspects that are often overlooked. In this highly original book, Israeli political economist Shir Hever shows that understanding the economic dimensions of the occupation is crucial to unravelling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Hever rejects the premise that Israel keeps control over Palestinian territories for material gain, and also the premise that Israel is merely defending itself from Palestinian aggression. Instead, he argues that the occupation has reached an impasse, with the Palestinian resistance making exploitation of the Palestinians by Israeli business interests difficult, but the Israeli authorities reluctant to give up control.

With traditional economic analysis failing to explain this turn of events, this book will be invaluable for students, activists and journalists struggling to make sense of the complex issues surrounding Israel’s occupation.

Book: 'The Privatisation of Israeli Security' by Shir Hever

From 1994-2014, Israel’s security service transformed and became one of the most extreme examples of privatized security in the world.

The Privatisation of Israeli Security provides a comprehensive overview of this period and the socioeconomic conditions that enabled it. Shir Hever considers the impact of the ongoing crisis of Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation, the influence of US military aid, and the effect of neoliberalism on state apparatus in order to make sense of this dramatic change in security policy. Through his revealing study, Hever shows how the structural violence of the neoliberal economy is self-perpetuating, providing a fresh perspective on the Israeli occupation for students, activists, and journalists alike.

Book: 'A Child in Palestine: The Cartoons of Naji al-Ali'

The first collection by the leading Palestinian political cartoonist, introduced by Joe Sacco, the author of the groundbreaking graphic novel Palestine.

Naji al-Ali grew up in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in the south Lebanese city of Sidon, where his gift for drawing was discovered by the Palestinian poet Ghassan Kanafani in the late 1950s. Early the following decade he left for Kuwait, embarking on a thirty-year career that would see his cartoons published daily in newspapers from Cairo to Beirut, London to Paris.

Resolutely independent and unaligned to any political party, Naji al-Ali strove to speak to and for the ordinary Arab people; the pointed satire of his stark, symbolic cartoons brought him widespread renown. Through his most celebrated creation, the witness-child Handala, al-Ali criticized the brutality of Israeli occupation, the venality and corruption of the regimes in the region, and the suffering of the Palestinian people, earning him many powerful enemies and the soubriquet “the Palestinian Malcolm X.”

For the first time in book form, A Child in Palestine presents the work of one of the Arab world’s greatest cartoonists, revered throughout the region for his outspokenness, honesty and humanity.

Published 2009

“That was when the character Handala was born. The young, barefoot Handala was a symbol of my childhood. He was the age I was when I had left Palestine and, in a sense, I am still that age today and I feel that I can recall and sense every bush, every stone, every house and every tree I passed when I was a child in Palestine. The character of Handala was a sort of icon that protected my soul from falling whenever I felt sluggish or I was ignoring my duty. That child was like a splash of fresh water on my forehead, bringing me to attention and keeping me from error and loss. He was the arrow of the compass, pointing steadily towards Palestine. Not just Palestine in geographical terms, but Palestine in its humanitarian sense—the symbol of a just cause, whether it is located in Egypt, Vietnam or South Africa.”Naji al-Ali, in conversation with Radwa Ashour

This is a ground-breaking book. For the first time, Western readers are beckoned into Palestinian lives by the graphic warmth, inspiration and horror of the cartoonist Naji al-Ali, whose iconic Hanthala is our witness and conscience, imploring, rightly, that we never forget. – John Pilger

Book: 'Balfour’s Shadow: A Century of British Support for Zionism and Israel' by David Cronin

“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

This is the infamous Balfour Declaration, which began one hundred years of conflict with the Palestinian people. Penned in 1917 by British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, these words had an immense impact on history that still emanates a century later. In the controversial, fast-paced Balfour’s Shadow, David Cronin traces the story of the rhetorical and practical assistance that Britain has given to the Zionist movement and the state of Israel since that day. Skillfully and engagingly written, Balfour’s Shadow uses previously unreleased sources and archives to reveal a new side to an old story. Cronin focuses on important historical events such as the Arab Revolt, the Nakba and establishment of the state, the ‘56 and ‘67 wars, the Cold War, and controversial public figures like Tony Blair. Marking the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Cronin provides a fascinating take on this oft-maligned, important history.

About the author

David Cronin is an Irish journalist and author who reports on the EU from Brussels. He has written for The Irish Times, The Guardian, Inter Press Service, TheJournal.ie, Electronic Intifada and others. His previous books include Corporate Europe: How Big Business Sets Policies on Food, Climate and War (Pluto, 2013) and Europe’s Alliance with Israel: Aiding the Occupation (Pluto, 2010).

Robert Fisk, journalist and author
“Perhaps the most dramatic centenary account of the Balfour Declaration …  Valuable research into British support for Israel.”

Tim Llewellyn, former BBC Middle East Correspondent
“Cronin describes vividly how, by deception, Britain’s imperial designs and perceived need for international Jewish support in wartime gave birth to the Balfour Declaration of November 1917, which handed Arab Palestine to the Zionist Movement, as a ‘Jewish national home’ or Jewish state. Cronin examines Britain’s continuing pernicious, deadly and lucrative relationship with Israel, its political support for Israel’s war crimes, and theft of Arab land and the mutual arms trade.”

Nur Masalha, editor of Journal of Holy Land and Palestine Studies
“It is not surprising that each year the November anniversary of the Balfour promise is celebrated by British friends of Israel and mourned by millions of dispossessed Palestinian refugees. Speaking the truth about the catastrophic consequences of British support for Zionism, this amply documented book shows how Britain erected and for decades maintained the scaffolding that gave birth to a settler-colonial state in Palestine and the Palestinian Nakba. Acknowledging Britain’s moral responsibility towards the Palestinians is a key message of this timely and courageous book. A must read for those seeking truth and reconciliation in the Middle East.”

Book: 'The Palestine-Israel Conflict: A Basic Introduction (4th Ed)' by Gregory Harms & Todd M. Ferry

The Palestine-Israel conflict is the most notorious and ingrained conflict in living memory. Yet the way it is reported in the media is confusing and often misleading. In The Palestine-Israel Conflict, Gregory Harms and Todd M. Ferry provide an authoritative introduction to the topic. Balanced, accessible, and annotated, it covers the full history of the region from Biblical times up to the present.

Perfect for both general readers and students, it offers a comprehensive yet lucid rendering of the conflict, setting it in historical context. This fourth edition brings us up to date with a new introduction, conclusion, and material covering recent events: Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, the Palestinian unity deal between Fatah and Hamas, and ongoing Palestinian resistance, America’s Middle East policy, and the election of Trump.

​Cutting through layers of confused and inconsistent information, this new edition of The Palestine-Israel Conflict will clarify the ongoing struggle for all readers.

‘This superior and remarkably thorough, if brief, study of the Holy Land enigma is strongly recommended as an introduction.’ –Choice

‘a tour de force in the depth and breadth of its research and in its clarity.’ John K. Cooley, veteran foreign correspondent and author on the Middle East ‘an indispensable, basic introduction’ –Gabriel Kolko, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at York University in Toronto

‘Gregory Harms has taken an enormously complex issue and made it engagingly accessible. An intelligent, thoughtful and comprehensive introduction to a terribly and consistently misunderstood conflict.’ –Sara Roy, Senior Research Scholar, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University

‘This work, written with a relaxed informality, is especially good at highlighting key issues. It will be helpful to students and to adult readers…’ -Arthur Goldschmidt Jr., Professor Emeritus of Middle East History at Penn State University

The 40-page  commemorative magazine includes articles on the history of the bombing and of its legacy, the story of Basque refugees, in particular the Gallastegi family from Bilbao who settled in Ireland after the bombing. It also covers politics in Ireland of the 1930s and the fight against fascism here, as well as the visit of Basque priest Ramon Laborda in 1937 to tell the Irish people of the suffering of the Basques and to counter pro fascist propaganda.

There is the untold story of Jack Prendergast — the only known Irish person to fight with the Basque Army against Franco’s fascists and an article on the murky underworld of the Catholic far right in Ireland. The magazine also features an interview with Basque trade union activist and feminist Marian Verde who tells her experiences of the dark days of the Franco dictatorship and of repression in the post Franco era. Finally, there are short pieces on Pablo Picasso’s Guernica, the Astra Centre, the Tree of Gernika, and art and Gernika.
