Development?

Here is my second venture into radio. A feature on the villages of Umm Al Heran and Attir, which are slated for demolition by Israel’s governmental authorities. Young Tasneem Abu Al Qian was my guide. First broadcast on FSRN.

Palestinian Jaffa

In May, Israelis celebrate Independence Day while Palestinians commemorate the Nakba (Disaster). One history still intersecting in vastly different ways with the lives of two peoples. Published on EI.

Resisting Erasure

This is a sample from my ongoing photo-documentary on Al Araqib. Al Araqib is a Bedouin village in the Negev, southern Israel. Despite pre-dating the state of Israel, the village is deemed ‘illegal’ by state authorities, which have planned to plant  a Jewish National Fund forest in its place.

In March 2015 MK Ayman Odeh of the Joint List called for a ‘March for Recognition’. The march brought Negev Bedouins to Jerusalem to hand a plan for recognition of 46 unrecognized Bedouin villages to the President’s office.

This story came out in the run up to the Israeli parliamentary elections in March 2015. The Joint List  was breathing new hope into Israeli politics. In Tel Aviv, I asked both its Jewish and Palestinians supporters what is special about it.

Here I talk about how Bedouins living in unrecognized villages in the Negev, with the help of local and international civil society organizations, defy government attempts at erasing them from the map.
