En Israel/Palestina, Tanya Reinhart traza el desarollo del Muro de Seguridad y la doctrina israelí de "Retirada Unilateral," que se inició en respuesta a la ampliación de la población Palestina, la cual pronto será la mayoría. Examinando la diplomacia reciente, incluyendo aquellos acuerdos auspiciados por los EEUU (Camp David, Oslo, y Taba), Reinhart discute el desequilibrio de poder fundamental que existe entres las partes negociadoras. Reinhart también identifica la estrategia israelí de crear circunstancias diseñadas para complicar los términos de futuros acuerdos.

En ésta obra introductora indispensable, Reinhart ofrece nuevas perspectivas sobre el conflicto y posibilidades para cambio en el futuro.

“Tanya Reinhart es una estudiosa israelí conocida sus trabajos de linguística y también por sus columnas quincenales en el diario Yediot Aharonot. Su libro pone en evidencia el elgaño sufrido por los palestinos, muchas veces con la complicidad de su propio gobierno.”

“Israel/Palestina de Tanya Reinhart representa la crítica má devastadora que hay acerca de la politica de Israel respecto a los palestinos. Escrito con urgencia y una claridad impávida, este libro merece ser leído por todos los americanos que, quizás sin saberlo, han estado subvencionado la ocupación militar durante los últimos 35 años.”

“I See How This Ends” by Mona Damluji

Palestinian artist Heba Zagout was killed with her two young children by an Israeli airstrike on Gaza on Friday, October 13, 2023.


The past two weeks have brought unimaginable horror to the people of Palestine and to the people of Israel, a tragedy perpetrated by a fascistic regime at the expense of civillians. It's hard to know how to respond without falling into despair. Mona Damluji, author of the children's book Together, shares a response to the seige upon Gaza with a poem of anguish, of resistance, and, ultimately, of hope.

I SEE HOW THIS ENDS
BY MONA DAMLUJI

When I say Palestine, 
I bear witness to the atrocities of history. 

When I say Palestine, 
I believe another world is possible. 

When I say Palestine, 
I remember how all the keys worn around their necks 
once fit snugly in the palm of their hands as they arrived home. 

When I say Palestine, 
I see beautiful people healing tree roots torn from the land. 

When I say Palestine, 
I know right from wrong. 

When I say Palestine, 
I stand proudly on the shoulders of giants 
and dig my heel into the eye of the monster.

When I say Palestine, 
I mean Falastin and not occupied territories. 

When I say Palestine, 
I dream wide open spaces where life is thriving. 

When I say Palestine, 
I hear the cries of the grassroots, the unstoppable, 
the victors of this moral battleground. 

You can’t make me say conflict, 
when I mean occupation.

You can’t make me say animal, 
when I mean child. 

You can’t make me say human shield, 
when I mean child. 

You can’t make me say body, 
when I mean someone’s child was taken from them 
and never returned. 

You can’t make me say clash, 
when I mean they dropped bombs 
that flattened a city block. 

You can’t make me say both sides. 

You can’t make me say it’s complicated. 

You can’t make me say endless cycle of violence.

When I say, I see how this ends, 
I mean peace. 

When I say, I see how this ends, 
I mean justice. 

When I  say, I see how this ends, 
I mean Palestine.

Tanya Reinhart

Born in 1943 in what is now the state of Israel, Tanya Reinhart received a BA in Hebrew literature and philosophy and an MA in comparative literature and philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, before receiving her PhD in linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she studied under Noam Chomsky. A highly accomplished cognitive linguist, she became better known in Israel for her fervent and unwavering criticism of that state’s military tactics and diplomatic dissimulation. Reinhart taught and published on art, literature and media studies; protested vigorously against the Israeli occupation of Lebanon and its continued annexation of Palestinian land; and held visiting professorships at Columbia University, the University of Utrecht, and the University of Paris. After losing her academic position at Tel Aviv University, where she had taught for more than twenty years, Reinhart was immediately offered a full-time position at New York University in 2006. She died in her sleep in Montauk, NY in 2007.
