The dramatic events that have taken place the last few weeks in Gaza, Jerusalem, and across historic Palestine have been unfolding as Palestinians commemorate the 74th year of the Nakba on May 15.

How do the recent assaults on Palestinians in Jerusalem, Gaza, and across historic Palestine reflect the structural realities of Israel’s military occupation and settler-colonial foundations? Do the reactions of Palestinians across historic Palestine represent a change in the narrative of Palestinian resistance? How can the frameworks of settler colonialism and apartheid be employed to dismantle the practices that drive Israel’s violence?

While it remains unclear how and when Israel will respond to Iran’s operation, geopolitics have undoubtedly already shifted. In this roundtable, Al-Shabaka analysts Fadi Quran, Fathi Nimer, Tariq Kenney-Shawa, and Yara Hawari offer insights on the regional impact of Iran’s recent maneuver and situate the ongoing genocide in Gaza within this broader context.
Mainstream media coverage of the genocide in Gaza throughout the West has highlighted not only deep biases in favor of the Israeli regime, but also the ease in which Palestinians are dehumanized. In this commentary, Yara Hawari details Israel’s strategy to strip Palestinians of their humanity in the public realm, as well as the role of Western media in advancing Israel’s aims. She reveals consistent patterns of journalistic malpractice since October 7, 2023, and concludes that the Western outlets are inescapably complicit in the Israeli regime’s genocide against the Palestinian people of Gaza.
