New report from UK charity War on Want shows how integral Israel’s military court system is in controlling Palestinian lives. The system is apartheid in nature and violates international law.
Israel and its military trample Palestinian human rights on a daily basis. Here are just a few headlines from the last week that U.S. media ignored.
Joe Biden has been in a love affair with Israel for decades. A scolding from Israel’s Prime Minister Menachem Begin early on might have set the course.
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).
If you’re disgusted with the direction our country is going, channel your energy to fight with us for justice and peace. We want to see Congress adopt rational, moral policies.
Israel announces it will not allow Gaza’s Christians to visit Bethlehem and Jerusalem to celebrate Christmas this year
The Israeli occupation is a constant, chilling presence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and among Palestinians living in Israel: children and adults are routinely abducted, Israeli housing is built on Palestinian land while Palestinian homes are demolished – just a few examples from one “average” day.
In this If Americans Knew series, we will analyze each contender’s position on Israel/Palestine and provide information that voters can give them to correct their misunderstanding of the issue. This entry provides an in-depth analysis of Joe Biden’s stands through his 49-year career….
In 2018, the government advanced thousands of housing units, including most which can be found in isolated settlements deep inside the West Bank, outside Israel’s pre-1967 borders. These are settlements that, in any two-state solution, Israel will have to evacuate. According to Peace Now, those who build these places have no intention of achieving peace and a two-state solution.
The latest announcement, which as an aside was cynically passed on Christmas while most Western governments are on holiday, shows that Netanyahu is willing to sacrifice Israeli interests in favor of an election gift to the settlers in an attempt to attract a few more votes from his right-wing flank.
