"We, the women of occupied East Jerusalem, are politically orphaned. We are victims without protection, as the Palestinian Authority has no right to protect us in our city, and the Israeli state treats us as terrorists that should be humiliated, attacked, violated, and controlled. The guerrilla state style tactics used in occupied East Jerusalem, be it the attacks on Palestinians in the streets, the beating of the young and old, the attacks on children going to and from school, the invasion of violent settlers to our neighborhoods and homes, the control of our life, water, cell phones, internet, mobility, health, economy, and accessibility to other resources, have situated us in human cages—segregated, restrained by Israeli laws and security theology, unable to know what to anticipate and what will come next." From the Jerusalemite Women's Coalition Call for Protection.

Rabab Abdulhadi and the Commemoration of the Edward Said Palestine Cultural Mural

"You can't be for justice somewhere and not be for justice everywhere."

"...part of the college education is learning how are you going to be part of a better world, part of a better community..."

Rabab Abdulhadi, professor of Ethnic Studies and Race and Resistance Studies at San Francisco State University talks about the commemoration of the Edward Said Palestine Cultural Mural, the only one of its kind on a U.S. college campus.  The mural was held up for several years due to fierce opposition from Zionist organizations and campus administrators, but was unveiled in November 2007.
