ONLY  THE BEGINNING OF THE END
By Ben White, The Electronic Intifada, 3 October  2007

The clinking champagne glasses on Engage's website said it
all.  The movement established to oppose the proposed
boycott of Israeli academic  institutions was celebrating a
victory, as the British University and College  Union (UCU)
announced that to even discuss the boycott risked
"infringing  discrimination legislation." The boycott of
Israel, it seemed, had suffered a  blow. Ben White comments
on the seeming defeat for the Palestine  solidarity
movement.

Palestine  : EI in the Press:

ALI ABUNIMAH DEBATES AVIKA ELDAR ON CANADIAN  RADIO
Debate, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, 2 October  2007

Reality on the ground has many -- once again --
questioning the  viability of a two-state solution and
whether the controversial one-state  proposal is even worth
talking about. On 24 September 2007, EI's Ali  Abunimah
appeared on the Canadian Brodcasting Corporation program,
The  Current with host Anna Maria Tremonti. Abunimah was
invited to take part in a  debate with Israeli journalist
and political columnist for Haaretz, Akiva  Eldar to
discuss the feasibility, desirability and seeming
impossibility  of a one-state solution for the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Lebanon  : Human Rights/Development:

INTERNATIONAL TUG OF WAR COMPLICATING  LEBANON'S ELECTION OUTCOME
Report, Electronic Lebanon, 2 October  2007

BEIRUT, 1 October (IRIN) - Lebanon's tussling factions are
headed  for a stalemate, settlement, or war, and
international actors as much as  local ones will decide
which, analysts say. The presidential vote which was  to be
held on 25 September was deferred until 23 October after
lawmakers  failed to find a consensus candidate. Opposition
members of parliament (MPs)  boycotted the vote, arguing
that Lebanon's fragile sectarian political system  requires
a president agreeable to both camps.

THE LEGACY OF SABRA AND SHATILA: AMNESIA  AND IMPUNITY
By Maryam Monalisa Gharavi, Live from Lebanon, Oct 2,  2007

On 17 September 1982, journalist Robert Fisk registered
the  unfiltered rawness of witnessing the murdered victims
of Sabra and Shatila up  close: "Massacres are difficult to
forget when you've seen the corpses." On  the final morning
of the mass execution, stumbling upon the bodies  of
unarmed civilians, the French poet, playwright and
novelist Jean Genet  wrote: "A photograph has two
dimensions, so does a television screen; neither  can be
walked through." Maryam Monalisa Gharavi recalls her
attempt to  "walk through" Shatila camp and Sabra 25 years
later.
