Suraya Dadoo is a South African writer and author focussing on Israel's occupation of Palestine.
In-depth: There is growing opposition to Israel's new observer status at the African Union, with member states and civil society groups citing the country's ongoing occupation of Palestine.
Opinion: The African Union has granted observer status to Israel, echoing many African countries' support for Palestine while engaging in "economic diplomacy" with Israel, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Analysis: Despite attempts at oversight, Yemen is awash with weapons made by South Africa's arms industry.
Comment: As Sudan seeks to appease Washington through normalising ties with Israel, any such deal would be betray its own people as well as Palestinians under occupation, argues Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: Africa's Frontline States showed what real solidarity looks like, but the Arab world is ignoring the lessons of history, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: The current hiatus in weapons sales is only a temporary 'inspections row'. It's time South Africa halted arms sales to Saudi Arabia altogether, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: South Africa ended its Security Council term on a fiery note, calling out inaction and the need for UN reform, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: In addition to its brutal military occupation of Palestine, Israel is also supplying the weapons to extend South Sudan's deadly civil war, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: When Palestinians refuse to surrender their rights, they're accused of rejecting peace, writes Suraya Dadoo.
Comment: A new UNHRC report stating that Israel may have committed war crimes in Gaza has met with global silence, writes Suraya Dadoo.
