Access, 2011 (left to right): Israeli ID, West Bank ID, Gaza ID, stateless Palestinian refugee With the continued absence of a credible political process, it has become evermore crucial to view the dominant structures of spatial power in Israel-Palestine as an entrenched reality rather than a passing aberration. This website was born from the pressing need to expose and confront the long-term spatio-political implications of these structures and, more broadly, to engage in forms of agency with the potential to counter them, and to establish paths towards possible alternatives. The term ‘arena of speculation’ was coined by Decolonizing Architecture , referring to an intellectual space of critical debate on the spatial futures of Israel-Palestine.

But its control of the narrative is coming to an end. As Israel loses ground it will viciously and irrationally attack all truth tellers, even if they are American students, and especially if they are Jews. There will come a day, and that day will come sooner than Israel and its paid lackeys expect, when the whole edifice will crumble, when even students at Hillel will no longer have the stomach to defend the continuous dispossession and random murder of Palestinians. Israel, by ruthlessly silencing others, now risks silencing itself. It is easy to forget, with eulogies casting him as the unexpected “peace-maker”, that for most of his long military and political career Ariel Sharon was known simply as The Bulldozer.
