To avoid the customary stamp of "anti-Semite" here, we have let six Israeli Jews like Uri Avnery, Gideon Levy, Ilan cardboard, Ehud Barak, Einat Weizman and Avichai Chairs come up in the magazine. All of them, except former Prime Minister Barak (Camp David), are critical of Israel's occupation policy. But also Barak, as he told me in my interview with him in Tel Aviv, that Palestine should have had its own independent economy – something he had already presented to Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin before the Oslo agreement as military officer.
Among a selection of important previous articles in MODERN TIMES – marked with years in the paper edition – you will find Avnery who writes about Jewish AIPAC in the US, Levy's critique of the wall Pappe's critique of Israel's 10 myths, and soldier Stollar's mention of military service in the West Bank as harassment rather than security.
Weak health services
You can ask what makes this magazine relevant right now. One thing is corona pandemic affecting Palestinians who are already struggling, with poor health services. Well, a plane from the Arab Emirates had to get rid of medication, and some testing and protection equipment has reached the Palestinians. But the occupation and the siege of Gaza are harsh.
The second is that the situation of the Palestinians has deteriorated with the new political alliance between Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz in Israel.
