How Anti-Jewish Jokes Hurt the Palestinian Cause - Nuzha Nusseibeh

A Palestinian woman in the West Bank waits for medical services at a mobile clinic. (Alberto Barbierro/Flickr) It happens every time I visit the U.S., and it’s happened increasingly over the last five years. I say I’m Palestinian (usually after trying out the less inflammatory “I’m from Jerusalem” and then being pressed for detail). There’s a pause, and then—“Oh, so... is it a problem for you that I’m Jewish?” There it is. Despite this initial hurdle, I’ve formed close relationships with many Jews—and that, in turn, often inspires condescension from others. I try to explain, as mildly as I can, that my having Jewish friends doesn’t signify the end of the grim state of affairs in the region. Neturei Karta - Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism.

Should I Apply for Spanish Citizenship as Sephardic Jew?

That’s what people are asking me today, as news circulates of the law the Spanish cabinet just approved to offer citizenship to Sephardic Jews. Two weeks ago, the Forward published a long essay I wrote about this citizenship offer, which the Spanish justice and foreign ministers first proposed in 2012. I went to Spain in November 2013, at first thinking I would apply for a passport myself. Three months after my trip, the text of the law is finally available. The bill allows the descendants of Jews expelled from Spain in 1492 to apply for Spanish citizenship, even if they choose not to live in Spain. Spain’s answer appears, on first read, to be jumbled. The law states that the official Jewish federation will be charged with giving certificates that accredit applicants as Sephardic, though it doesn’t say how the federation will make that determination.
