Not Just A Soccer Game: Colonialism and Conflict among Palestinians in Israel.

 

In his presentation, Dr. Majid discussed his book “Not Just A Soccer Game: Colonialism and Conflict among Palestinians in Israel.” The book aims, on the one hand, to contribute to the project of Arab/Palestinian intellectual decolonization, a project that is necessary for real economic, political, and social decolonization. On the other hand, the presentation offered a brief discussion of the event of the soccer game between two Palestinian villages, Kafr Yassif and Julis, which ended in a fight between the fans, resulting in the killing of two people, one from each village. Dr. Majid connected this incident with the question of communal conflict and settler colonialism.
