He's chairman of the Palestinian Center for Rapprochement Between People. His books and other writing focus on Israel/Palestine.
On January 16, he headlined "A Choice Between Right-Wing Politicians and Extreme Right Wingers," saying:
Israelis have little choice. Small Arab and moderate Israeli parties are marginalized and denied. Colonial apartheid is policy.
In February 2009, Qumsiyeh headlined "Solidifying Fascism," saying:
The political landscape looks grim. It's "poised to finally fulfill its destiny of fascism. Israelis will".continue to be lulled into supporting the unthinkable."
"The inevitable result" is denying millions of Palestinians their rights. They're occupied, displaced, and isolated. Endless wars and persecution afflict them.
Nothing ahead looks promising. Conditions today look worse. Netanyahu spurns peace. He's involved in Washington's war on Syria.
He threatens to attack Iran. He risks embroiling the entire region in conflict. He prioritizes land theft and settlement expansions. He thumbs his nose at world opinion.
Odds favor him to remain prime minister. He'll get another four years. Worse than ever times loom. Israelis will have themselves to blame.
They'll have to explain why they voted against their own self-interest. It won't be for the first time.
