66 times: I’m not an Arab Israeli, I’m not an Israeli woman

I was just informed that Haaretz website published an article “66 Israeli women you should know” marking 66 years for the “independence”, our Nakba. I was included in this list without knowing about it!
Firstly, it is NOT an honor to me, at all, to be included in anything that has to do with the day Israelis celebrate colonialism of my land and displacement of my people. Secondly, I’m not an “Israeli woman” not an “Israeli Arab”. How many times should we repeat this?

موقع هآرتس نشر مقالا يحتوي على قائمة “٦٦ إمرأة إسرائيلية عليكم معرفتهن” بمناسبة مرور ٦٦ عام على “الإستقال”، نكبتنا. لقد تم إدراج إسمي وسيرة ذاتية عني دون علمي.
أولا، أبدا لا يشرفني أن يتم ذكري في مناسبة يحتفل بها الإسرائيليون باستعمار أرضي وتهجير شعبي. ثانيا، أنا لست “امرأة إسرائيلية”، ولا “عربية اسرائيلية”.
مما اقتضى التنويه.

Palestinian refugees (5.3 million) along with the internally displaced Palestinians, citizens of Israel who are not allowed to go back to their villages (250, 000), compose about half of the Palestinian nation (11.6 million). Does it make sense to be in solidarity with a nation by ignoring rights of half of them?  Continue reading
