The readers editor on the Guardians coverage of Israel/Palestine issues | Chris Elliott 27.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The use and awareness of language the Guardian deploys when reporting on the Israel/Palestine conflict attracts regular criticism When we received a complaint from the Israeli embassy on 16 October about the Guardians coverage of Israel/Palestine issues, it was the 17th this year and the third in three days. There have also been two allegations of antisemitism in the past fortnight but only one had a direct connection with Israel/Palestine issues. The other did not and it is important to make the distinction between criticism of Israeli policies and antisemitism. There are many pitfalls for the unwary writing about the Israel/Palestine conflict. The latest complaint from the embassy, submitted by Yiftah Curiel, press attache, was about what he sees as the disproportionate amount of coverage the Guardian gives to Israel/Palestine issues and Gaza in particular something of a theme among the Guardians critics in this area. He cited several examples of the use of images from Palestine in the daily Guardian ...

Turning Fear Into Power: An Interview With Unarmed Peacekeeper Linda Sartor 23.10.2014 Truthout.com
Linda Sartor standing on a Soviet tank outside of Kabul, Afghanistan. (Photo: Peggy Gish / WNV)Linda Sartor is not afraid to die. Dedicated to nonviolence, she spent 10 years after September 11, 2001 traveling to conflict zones throughout the world as an unarmed peacekeeper, with roles ranging from protective accompaniment to direct interpositioning between parties when tensions were running high. She documents her work across the world — in Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Iran and most recently Bahrain — in her new book,  Turning Fear into Power: One Woman’s Journey Confronting the War on Terror . Inwardly quiet and exceedingly humble (she chose to sleep outside for eight years of her adult life), her courage and conviction are not only refreshing, they’re infectious. I recently had the privilege of spending a day with her to discuss her travels and the ways in which they have changed her as an individual, as well as her relationship to nonviolent action. Is there a nonviolent response ...
