Israeli forces have killed 131 Palestinians, injured 14,700 … Israel is using “exploding bullets” that cause devastating injuries and often require amputation… killed at least 2 journalists, injured 90, shot deaf child in head, soccer player in knee… B’Tselem launched campaign telling Israeli soldiers to refuse the illegal orders to shoot unarmed demonstrators…Geraldo Rivera tells Fox he regrets he didn’t support Palestinians against Israeli “occupation and oppression”… We’ll post updates here as we learn of them…
After IDF’s single largest bombing campaign in Gaza since 2014, & Hamas’ rocket response, a UN rep called for moderation & promised that UN would not forget people of Gaza.
Netanyahu explained Israel’s strategy of using brute strength until Palestinians get the message that incendiary balloons are unacceptable.
Meanwhile, 2 teenage Palestinian boys were killed in Israeli rocket attacks; 4 Israelis were injured by rockets.
Israeli President Reuvin Rivlin speaks as though Israel alone has Gaza’s best interests in mind, but a little digging proves his words to be utterly disingenuous.
Zionist terrorism has existed since before the founding of Israel – and tolerated, empowered, even glorified. All the while, Palestinians have been condemned for resistance.
Gaza and Khan al Ahmar have made the news recently. But nothing newsworthy from the West Bank. What does a typical week look like there? Here’s a glimpse.
Professor Jeremy Salt writes: “Israel is by far the worst settler-colonial experience in history,” a state that makes murderers into heroes, and “based not on morality, justice, and law but brute force.” Because, Zionism.
The back story of Passages, Museum of the Bible’s program to take Christian college students to Israel
Passages is a program that takes Christian college students to Israel to make them a “voice for Israel.” Students never visit the West Bank and Gaza. The program, which promotes Christian Zionism, was suggested by Israeli government officials. A major backer is hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer, a Jewish advocate for Israel and prominent LGBTQ supporter…
If Israel is Jewish, it cannot be democratic; if it’s democratic, it cannot be Jewish. But now the nation-state law makes it plain. Israel is for Jews only, officially.
Archbishop Tutu & other leaders urge the Episcopal Church’s General Convention to support BDS & end the Church’s complicity in Israeli injustice & profiteering.
Khan al Ahmar is just the latest example of dispossession & demolition by Israel. Racist laws enable “legal” expulsion of Palestinians from any land the Zionist project needs.
Senate committee approves AIPAC bill to give Israel $38 billion over 10 years, with additional perks
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the legislation, allowing it to proceed to the full Senate floor. The bill also authorizes the president to establish a US-Israeli counter-drone program, expand collaboration on the peaceful exploration of space, extended loan guarantees to Israel, etc. (Rand Paul’s call to phase out aid to Israel was voted down.)
Israel is using protests in Gaza to test & showcase its arms industry. From grenade-carrying drones to “smart fences” and more, Israel is profiting from the carnage in Gaza.
Israeli PM Netanyahu, tired of incendiary kites, has closed Gaza’s commercial border crossing; Hamas calls the decision a ‘crime’; HRW calls it ‘collective punishment’.
Nearly one tenth of the residents of Palestinian village Abu al Nuwar just became homeless thanks to an illegal Israeli policy of home demolition.
The ‘ultimate deal’ that Jared Kushner is proposing for Palestine would strip the people of all their dignity
Jared Kushner is ignorant, or apathetic about Middle East peace. After 70 years of resistance, Palestinians have no intention of selling out to “the ultimate deal.”
After years of threats and court battles, the West Bank Bedouin village of Khan al Ahmar is about to be demolished. Contrary to international law, as usual.
