We should not fool ourselves by believing that the conditions of the latest ceasefire between Hamas and the IDF are being honoured by the IDF (excuse the word ‘honoured’ here).

Stevie Wonder has announced that he will perform at at the annual Gala for Friends of the IDF (FIDF). Maybe he does not know. Maybe the people around him are blind. Maybe he lost his soul.
Latest Israeli murderous attacks on Gaza prove that they can spit out their lies about what really happened without fearing any coward to challenge them.
The Palestinian solidarity movement in South Africa (through BDS South Africa and the Palestine Solidarity Alliance) have taken out over 12 billboards (large outdoor displays) across the country graphically explaining the Israeli Occupation of Palestinian lands and the dispossession of the Palestinian people.

It made [...]
By Antoine Raffoul* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz It is thought that at times like these, people would be lost for words. Perhaps. But people should never be lost for action. We, at 1948.Lest.We.Forget, as anyone who has scanned our website would come to realize, are focused directly on events relating to the Palestinian Nakba [...]
By Antoine Raffoul* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz In an Opinion submitted to the Electronic Intifada on 4 March 2010 entitled: Moment of Truth, Rifat Kassis rightly asks: what does ‘boycott’ mean, how far does it go, and what does it call for? We, at 1948: Lest We Forget, wish to respond to any call [...]
