Gideon Levy: Israel’s Supreme Court is just as cruel as its military court when dealing with Palestinians: it is a rubber stamp of injustice and apartheid. (Also see recent interview with Levy.)

Longtime journalist Chris Hedges offers a partial inventory of Israel’s documented human rights abuses of Palestinians – massive abuses that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. chooses to ignore: the crimes of apartheid, and the targeting and torturing of civilians, to name a few. As Hedges reminds us, to support this Israel is to “justify the unjustifiable”; and to protest Israeli policy is “a political death wish.” (part 3)
Just because you don’t see Israel/Palestine in the headlines, doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Every day, Israel finds new & more cruel ways to treat Palestinians (& their allies), and Palestinians continue to resist their oppressors.
Israel’s attack on Gaza should never have started – and now it won’t end because Israel clings to its desire to violate international law indefinitely.
The death of hunger striker Khader Adnan underscores Israel’s cruel, often illegal treatment of Palestinian prisoners, the overuse of administrative detention, & the decades of tyrannical military orders that keep Palestinians subjugated and miserable.
For 75 years, Israel has denied its dispossession and expulsion of the Palestinians. Now, belatedly, the international community must recognize the Nakba
In Part Two of the in-depth article from the Intercept on Israel’s decades-long campaign against Palestinians, read about how the Israeli military partners with settlers, using harassment, violence, and clandestine moves, to control Palestinian land. Palestinians are left with noncontiguous “Bantustans,” where they are still unable to live in peace.
The Intercept recently featured an in-depth article describing Israel’s decades-long campaign of discrimination and violence against Palestinians – in a way that begins to capture the magnitude of the injustice. The many forms of mistreatment require a lengthy article. IAK has broken it into four manageable parts which we will release over the next several days.
In Part One, read about the case of the hamlets of Masafer Yatta, where Israeli policy is trying to force Palestinians to leave – either by discriminatory legislation or intimidation and violence.
This week, Israeli soldiers attacked 6- and 8-year-old children, killed a teenager, and delivered demolition orders to an EU-funded primary school. Israeli occupation forces have killed 15 Palestinian children (80 Palestinians total) since the beginning of 2023.
2022 was a deadly year for Palestinians under Israeli occupation. If Americans Knew brought you crucial information – and will continue in 2023.
