Human rights: a mirror for all

Instead of posing as truth-advocates, Israeli human rights activists should first acknowledge the limitations of their own paradigm to address the source and scope of injustices endured by Palestinians. Then they might realize they are in the same boat as the public they so desperately try to persuade. A response to Jessica Montell. עברית ,العربية

حقوق الإنسان: الانطلاق حتى النهاية

بدلاً من ادعاءات النشطاء الإسرائيليون في مجال حقوق الإنسان بأنهم حماة الحقيقة والمدافعون عن الحق؛ ينبغي عليهم أولاً وقبل كل شيء أن يعترفوا بوجود قيود لنموذجهم لمعالجة مصدر ومدى الظلم الذي يعاني منه الفلسطينيون. حينئذ فقط، قد يدركون أنهم في قارب واحد مع الشعب الذين يسعون لإقناعه بكل الوسائل. رد على جيسيكا مونتيل.

Human rights, “human beings,” and Israel

As a global political project, “human rights” has little resonance for most Israeli Jews. As Israel continues to fly in the face of hegemonic international norms, what can tip the balance? A response to Jessica Montell. Translations: 

Making universalism resonate locally

To build support for human rights among the Israeli public, we need to not only address the public's political beliefs and security concerns, but also a much more fundamental critique of the human rights movement as unresponsive to religious beliefs and traditional values.
