A un certo punto cinque coloni israeliani, alcuni con tubi di metallo in mano e altri armati di pistole e di un fucile M16, hanno attaccato l’uomo e suo figlio, arrivando a rompere entrambe le braccia di Hafez. Nel frattempo altri abitanti del villaggio hanno chiamato i soccorsi e la polizia. Mentre dei soldati israeliani arrestavano Hafez, che aveva cercato di difendersi dall’attacco con la pala con cui stava lavorando...

Dopo la chiusura di “Al Shuhada Street”, ora chiamata “Apartheid Street” dai palestinesi, il Suq della città vecchia è diventato la principale via commerciale della città. Tuttavia, nei piani superiori degli edifici si sono stabiliti insediamenti ebraici di coloni che gettano rifiuti e feci sulla strada sottostante frequentata dai palestinesi, rendendo necessaria l’installazione di reti di protezione per evitare contaminazioni. Nessuna rete può tuttavia trattenere il nauseante odore dei rifiuti, così come il palpabile odio di chi getta rifiuti sulla testa dei passanti. Alessandro Bartolini Nato a Poppi, Arezzo, nel 1966, è ingegnere civile di professione e fotografo di passione. Nel 2005 organizza...

Gerusalemme è considerata una città santa nell'Ebraismo, nel Cristianesimo e nell'Islam, dove fino a poco fa le tre religioni condividevano il territorio con una certa armonia.Nel quartiere di Sheikh Jarrah vivono almeno 70 famiglie palestinesi minacciate di sfratto. Per Israele quelle terre sono di proprietà di famiglie ebree, residenti a Gerusalemme est prima del ‘48. I palestinesi rifugiati per legge non hanno alcun diritto di rivendicare proprietà dentro Israele, gli ebrei sì.Il contenzioso immobiliare è un imbroglio giuridico e politico...

The difficult and complicated times we are experiencing in these weeks after the inhumane attack carried out by Hamas toward Israeli civilians and the Israeli army's disproportionate and unjustifiable response toward the people of Gaza will certainly not be resolved by siding with the Israeli people or the Palestinian people. Yet all those who care about the future and the coexistence of peoples are aware that without paving the way toward the construction of two states, that small territory in our world will become the place of greatest destabilization and a human powder keg capable of breaking the already unstable balance in the Middle East, the antechamber to a war of incalculable proportions and consequences for the entire planet. The history that has passed through a land so cherished and loved by Christians, Jews and Muslims over the past 70 years is, in each of its events and occurrences, the true witness to the inability so far...

My name is Christine, I am Palestinian, born and raised in Bethlehem. A few years ago I came to Italy to continue my studies and participate in a project related to conflict management and peace building. I participated in this project because I believed and still believe that peace can be built in Palestine, but to make peace first justice must be done. I have experienced wars since I was a child, I have seen the suffering, sadness, anger, resistance and strength of my people. I vividly remember the second intifada and the beginning of the construction of the apartheid wall. I lived through the Israeli occupation and the absence of freedom it caused. In Palestine to say there is no freedom is not rhetoric, it is reality. We cannot move independently from one city to another without Israel's permission. We cannot travel all the roads because some are reserved for Israelis and...

Stefano Zecchi: Florentine, politician, writer and journalist has always lived in Florence. His efforts in recent years have been aimed at publicizing writers and books, through presentations that are never trivial and always well attended and in interviews, here we publish an interview of his with Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, who are holding prominent positions in the political, cultural, and ecclesial scene in Italy. Cardinal Matteo Zuppi talks about the search for peace "We look for what unites to solve what divides. Preparing the dialogue is almost more important than the dialogue itself, a bit like creating the system that can then allow the solution to be found." In his Bologna we met with Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, President of the Italian Bishops' Conference, who despite his countless commitments welcomed us with his fraternal, helpful style, a style that conveys credibility and hope. With him we addressed some issues of close relevance. Bishop Matteo, this year has been...

Florence, October 19, 2023 The John Paul II Foundation, which has been working with cooperation and peace projects in many countries in the Middle East for more than twenty-five years, joins Father Bernardo Gianni's appeal. Last night the Franciscan youth, led by Fr. Matteo Brena, invited to prayer in the Church of San Salvatore al Monte alle Croci, and many responded. On Monday it is Father Bernardo who asks us to climb the "mountain of peace" again, together in silence to ask for peace.We make Father Bernardo's words our own. "I invite you therefore, in these dark hours of anguish, bewilderment and motivated concern for the future not only of that or that other region of our planet, but for the future of the entire human family, to face Monday evening the ascent that leads to this mountain: we will have no words to utter, no slogans to shout, no banners to display: our faces, our...

As the catastrophic death toll and destruction caused by the Hamas attack mounts, it becomes clear how right the Israeli authorities were to speak immediately of "war." There will be a way to understand how the preparations for this war could have escaped the spies and intelligence of the Jewish state and Egypt, as well as U.S. satellites. Knowing the Israelis, inquiries will come and they will look no one in the face. Perhaps not even in that of Itamar Ben Gvir, the ultra-nationalist (understatement) Minister of National Security, who is obsessed with protecting Jewish settlements in the West Bank, his electoral base, perhaps even to the point of gutting the border with Gaza. But what matters to us now is to understand who declared it and why. Hamas, certainly. But Mohammed Deif, the military leader of Hamas, is no new Von Clausewitz. The director who provided the means, suggested the tactics, inspired the...
