My Arabic calligraphy teacher: Ehab Thabet

My Arabic calligraphy teacher: Ehab Thabet
I’ve been in Palestine for a couple weeks to give a seminar on economic empowerment and to do some journalism and art for Mondoweiss and Middle East Eye. Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit my Arabic calligraphy teacher, Ehab Thabet in the pastoral village of Jifna in the West Bank. It’s been 9 years since I saw him.

The trials of Palestinian nonviolence activist Issa Amro

I met non-violent resistance activist Issa Amro in Hebron in 2006 and we worked together there for three years. He taught me how to stand up to soldiers, settlers and police and to not let them intimidate me. Now he is on trial over a list of laughable charges and is facing a possible lengthy prison sentence. When no-nothing TV pundits recycle the cliché phrase “where are the Palestinian Gandhis?” the answer is “in jail or on trial.”

Three ways to carve up the Middle East

Earlier this week, it was reported that Sebastian Gorka, a senior advisor to US President Donald Trump, once drew a map of Libya on a napkin during a meeting with a senior European diplomat, suggesting that the country be partitioned into three. The diplomat reportedly responded that Gorka's idea would be "the worst solution" for the country. In that spirit, cartoonist Katie Miranda offers a selection of mapping moments, from bad to worse to just plain ugly.
