A woman stands with arms foldedFarah Maraqa, a Palestinian-Jordanian journalist, stood up to Deutsche Welle and won.

Monday was a “date for celebrations,” Farah Maraqa wrote.

The Palestinian-Jordanian journalist had just won her lawsuit against Deutsche Welle.

The German state broadcaster was ordered by the Berlin labor court to reinstate her and pay all her legal costs.

The decisive victory “suggests that the court recognized that Farah’s termination, based on a controversial investigation and unfounded allegations of anti-Semitism related to reports published before her employment contract, was illegal,” said the European Legal Support Center.

Thursday, 18 August 2022 — MintPress News

Jerusalem, Palestine – The situation in Palestine can be summed up as follows: Rampant Settler violence and intimidation, state-sponsored racism and violence, modern, comfortable housing and living conditions for Jews only while Palestinians are denied basic services, killing of Palestinians across the board – activists, journalists, fighters, children and citizens of Israel. Palestinian organizations, even ones that are recognized internationally, have no protection and are subject to closure, arrests and confiscation of their property.

Without Palestine, There is No Arab Unity: Why Normalization with Israel Will Fail

Wednesday, 10 August 2022 — MintPress News

Israel arab

It seemed all but a done deal: Israel is finally managing to bend the Arabs to its will, and Palestine is becoming a marginal issue that no longer defines Israel’s relations with Arab countries. Indeed, normalization with Israel is afoot, and the Arabs, so it seems, have been finally tamed.

Robert Inlakesh

Despite how heavy handed the occupation forces came in, they failed to achieve their objectives due to the unity of the northern West Bank resistance.
