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.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg commanded immense respect, adulation, and influence. She spoke out against racism and discrimination, and has been called ‘a revolutionary.’ Some have written: ‘Even to the end of her life, she remained committed to our mantra: none are free, until all are free…’ Progressive groups are sending out emails about continuing ‘her legacy’ of ‘fighting for justice.’ Imagine the impact she could have had if she’d included Palestinians in her concerns, and spoken out against Israeli violence and apartheid, instead of remaining silent and endorsing Israel…

The Foundation to Combat Anti-Semitism plans to teach high school and college students how to beat hate and embrace tolerance – except when it comes to Palestinians
A 7-year-old Palestinian boy discovered a box full of stun grenades planted in his village by Israeli soldiers the night before, one of 3 such boxes set to explode when touched, camouflaged with stones and scraps of cloth…The boy narrowly escaped injury by that particular IDF action (his relative was not so lucky – neither was a 15-year-old who was shot in the head on Thursday, or a 9-year-old shot in the head last year).
The Republican National Committee platform of 2016, resurrected for 2020, will once again genuflect before Israel – ignoring the realities of human rights, international law, and logic.
As has too often been the case, Associated Press once again fails the test of good journalism on the subject of Palestine, earning poor marks on accuracy, balance, and context.
Apparently only 2 of Biden’s VP candidates to have publicly shown any real concern for justice for Palestinians. The rest have only paid lip service…like Biden himself.
