thisisnotarab was a really great blog but I think what bothered me was that I was reminded of a lot of instances which Arabs in particular barrel into conversations of anti-semitism (Jews sharing their trauma and discussing the horrors of it) with WE ARE SEMITES TOO, which, yes! absolutely, but it’s v clear that this was referring to the murder and brutalization of Jews and these particular instances made me way uncomfortable about how some ppl were making conversations about Jewish suffering about them…..
Like yeah definitely if you identify as Semitic and point out that yes, anti-semitism as a term erases u and ppl who share a Semitic language and identity, and choose anti-Jewish as a term instead, great. But the way ppl have reacted to Jews use of it is rly….odd

More excerpts from the extremely beautiful “Subjective Atlas of Palestine" project. View the full publication via link.
About: The Dutch designer Annelys de Vet invited Palestinian artists, photographers and designers to map their country as they see it. Given their closeness to the subject, this has resulted in unconventional, very human impressions of the landscape and the architecture, the cuisine, the music and the poetry of thought and expression. The drawings, photographs, maps and narratives made for this atlas reveal individual life experiences, from preparing chickpeas to a manual on water pipe smoking, from historic dress to modern music. Pages containing humorous and caustic newspaper cartoons and invented Palestinian currency followed by colourful cultural diaries and moving letters from prisoners.
All in all, the contributions give an entirely different angle on a nation in occupied territory. In this subjective atlas it is the Palestinians themselves who show the disarming reverse side of the black-and-white image generally resorted to by the media.
