EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The decades-long one-sided Washington policy in favor of Israel reached new heights during the Trump regime. The peace process is a joke.

Yet, despite the occupation, the Palestinians practice, what is called in Arabic, al-sumud, steadfastness. They...

Fascists use fear, one of the most powerful human emotions, to manipulate...

Legal battles for gender equality didn’t begin with the Women’s Movement of the 1960s.
