When Israel created itself in 1948—and even before this date—the “Jewish State” worked to take control of archaeology, and thus, of the region’s history. It toiled to erase footprints of the numerous civilizations that had preceded the Jewish presence, as well as the peoples that have come afterward. Kathryn Shihadah gives us the past and present details….

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.
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.
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.
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.
Abdullah, 13, lost a leg to an Israeli sniper bullet. He’s not a cute kid who had a tragic accident. His story is the horror that Gaza has become for nearly every family.
NYT, Wash. Post, & CNN are examples of the selective amnesia from which nearly every MSM news source seems to suffer when it comes to the subject of Israel.
Mohammad Tamimi, 15-yr-old cousin of Ahed Tamimi, wants to live his life (with 1/3 of his skull missing). Israeli forces shot him in the head; now apparently they want him behind bars.
The Left Forum board of directors has rejected a panel on Palestine by If Americans Knew. The panel, which was to include a discussion of censorship among its topics, was to consist of a Muslim Palestinian refugee immigrant, two American women, and a Palestinian-Colombian-American man…
All hands on deck: the Global Campaign to Return to Palestine needs our help to help the people in Gaza educating Americans about the Great March of Return. They propose a “tent campaign,” a rich metaphor for refugees and demolished homes. Here are instructions, plus an offer from If Americans Knew for free materials to hand out.
Killing of Palestinians is not new. It has been going on for decades, unabated, uncriticized, and bankrolled by the US. The Leahy Laws enable us to withhold aid to countries that commit human such rights abuses, but in spite of overwhelming proof of abuse by Israel, our politicians refuse to cut off military support.
The world was watching as peaceful Gazan protesters met heavily armed Israeli soldiers at the border Saturday. Responses to the violence range from full support to utter denial.
The Associated Press’s news story on the upcoming Great Return March echoes Israeli talking points…
Jake Tapper’s piece on Israeli psychologists working with children after HS shooting in Parkland FL highlights Israel’s “vast experience with terrorism and war.” As usual, Israel is the innocent victim of Palestinian terrorism.
Palestinians survive such whitewashing by developing a unique coping mechanism, “Sumud.”
The Taylor Force Act will probably become law by the end of the week. Two tragedies will be perpetuated: Palestinians will continue to be seen as terrorists, unworthy of food and shelter; and Israel will continue unabated in spending American money to kill and imprison them.
