ISRAEL’S BDS BAN IS PROOF THAT WE ARE WINNING

A new law denying entry to foreigners who call for a boycott of Israel or the settlements shows the BDS movement is gaining strength — and Israel is “panicking.”

Cornel West Says Israel’s BDS Ban Shows Boycott Push Is Winning

Cornel West says a new law denying entry to foreigners who call for a boycott of Israel or the settlements shows the BDS movement is gaining strength — and Israel is “panicking.”

“lt’s a sign of panic, a sign of hysteria, a very sad response to an intense situation,” the African-American philosopher said. “Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel would turn in his grave thinking about the spiritual blackout that is occurring in Israel.”

West has publicly supported BDS for years, and as such, is one of the prominent public figures who could be denied entry under the new law.

West, who supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic presidential primaries, says he’s worried about Israeli democracy.

The law “shows that BDS is getting stronger but it also shows that any critique of the settlements, any critique of the ugly occupation is grounds for excluding people from the country,” he says.

“What about the people inside the country?,” he asks. “People who live right there, in Tel Aviv, are you going to say they don’t have the right to be inside their own country? That is what authoritarian regimes do. It’s just sad to see Israel move more and more in that authoritarian direction.”

Yigal Levinstein tells graduates of a pre-army religious academy that IDF turns Jewish women into unattractive ‘non-Jews’ by eroding their values

 

A controversial rabbi who runs a pre-army religious academy told new IDF recruits that military service drives female soldiers “crazy” and strips them of their Jewishness.

In footage broadcast by Channel 2 news on Tuesday, Rabbi Yigal Levinstein told several hundred graduates of a prestigious religious army preparatory academy in the West Bank settlement of Bnei Atzmon that IDF service has “driven our girls crazy.”

“They recruit them to the army, where they enter as Jews, but they’re not Jews by the time they leave,” he said. “Not in the genetic sense, but all of their values and priorities have been upset and we must not allow it.”

RICHARD GERE BREAKS HIS SILENCE ON THE OCCUPATION

Richard Gere calls for an end to ‘the occupation’

Hollywood star Richard Gere is in Israel promoting his new movie Norman, by Israeli director Joseph Cedar. However, the question of how he will be received by the Israeli public is a matter of uncertainty.”In my past visits to Israel, I always heard all the viewpoints. Now it has become almost impossible. I know many people will not like what I have to say, but these are things that need to be said,” said Gere.

“The occupation must end. The occupation is ruining everyone on both sides. A bi-national state won’t solve anything, and it will only turn Israel into an apartheid state. There needs to be two states for two peoples, with Jerusalem as the capital of both nations.

In his comments, Gere also referred to the issue of settlements, saying, “Why do you need all these provocations? How is it that the settlers are running the government? And how could it be that Israel, of all nations, controls another nation? Many Israelis that I know say the state has lost its way and I think that every Israeli knows that.”

During his visit to Israel, Gere is also planning on meeting members of Breaking the Silence. He knows that this will be poorly received, but he remains undeterred. “I recently spoke to someone from the organization who served in the army, a wonderful young woman with a big heart, and they’re labeling her an enemy of the state. It breaks your heart.”

ELTON JOHN SUPPORTS BDS BY PLAYING PALESTINE

The honorary guest at the opening ceremony of British graffiti artist Banksy’s new hotel in Bethlehem was none other than Elton John. The famous singer recorded a special message that was played for the guests who attended the opening ceremony. “I would’ve loved to have been with you all tonight but you know, there wasn’t any room at the inn,” John said. The popular British singer also made a political statement: “It’s my great pleasure to be playing in Palestine this evening. Please know that you are not alone. You are not forgotten.”

BANKSY WELCOMES YOU TO THE WALL IN BETHLEHEM

‘The Walled Off Hotel’ in Bethlehem, with a view of the separation barrier, will officially open March 11th and comes complete with dozens of pieces of art work by British artist Banksy; artist is known for politically-charged work and has visited Israel and the Palestinian territories in the past.

Welcome To The ‘Wall,’ Banksy Style

Under an army watchtower and across the street from the concrete wall Israel has built in parts of the occupied West Bank, street artist Banksy has opened a guesthouse in the Palestinian city of Bethlehem.

In the revered birth town of Jesus, the Walled Off hotel stands three storeys high. Its bedroom walls and hallways are decorated with the mysterious artist’s stencil graffiti work — one shows an Israeli soldier and masked Palestinian youth having a pillow fight, and a statue of a chimpanzee bell-boy stands at the entrance, clothes falling out of the suitcase he holds.

The hotel, converted from a pottery workshop, has been styled to resemble “an English gentlemen’s club from colonial times,” a statement from the artist said, in acknowledgement of the historical role Britain played in the Middle East.

But the decor has been spiced up with statues choking on tear gas, cherubs hanging from the ceiling, their faces covered by oxygen masks and oil paintings of refugee life jackets washed ashore.

The hotel was set up in secrecy over the last 14 months — Israeli military authorities in the West Bank did not immediately respond when asked if they had been aware in advance.

Banksy, whose real name is not known, described his guesthouse as having the worst view of any hotel in the world: Every room overlooks the barrier which is a symbol of oppression for the Palestinians.

Israel began building it in 2002 at the height of a Palestinian uprising in which Israeli cities were rocked by frequent Palestinian suicide bombings.

Palestinians dub it an “apartheid wall” and an Israeli attempt to grab land in the West Bank, which they want along with Gaza and East Jerusalem, for a future state.

The Banksy statement said the hotel “offers a warm welcome to people from all sides of the conflict and across the world” and was financed by the artist.

Gentle music from a self-playing pianola fills the candle-lit dining room where a framed painting of Jesus looks up at three warplanes, stenciled on the wallpaper above.

The hotel also has its own art gallery and an exhibition dedicated solely to the wall, which features contributions from Palestinians and Israelis.

The Walled Off is Banksy’s biggest project since the 2015 “Dismaland” theme park at the English seaside, where staff carried balloons proclaiming “I’m an imbecile” and model boats full of refugees floated in a pond.

TRUMP FINDS COMMON GROUND WITH ZION

The unique in the world State which calls itself the “only democracy in the Middle East” and which since 1967 has been imposing military occupation on Palestinians with a system of illegal settlement policies and colonisation has continuously sought to emulate other  dictatorships such as North Korea. However, at least, North Korea does not claim to be the “only democracy” in Asia!

What Zionists and Trump have in common: they cannot stand the truth!

By Evelyn Hecht-Galinski, English Translation by Milena Rampoldi
*
And as “involved“ people we have long known how the “Jewish State” uses violence against human rights activists and organisations who are critical and tell the truth about its human rights and international law violations. The way the “Jewish State” treats Jewish and foreign human rights organisations should prompt us to ask ourselves: How long should we accept our tax money being used to support the maintenance of this Zionist occupation and oppression? And how long should the double standard apply for the “Jewish State“? The “particular” relationship must finally be normalised!
*
How should we react to the fact that German banks, under the threat of pressure from outside, cancel accounts of Jewish groups only because  they support the legal and non-violent BDS campaign? Jewish activists are denigrated by the representatives of the “Jewish State” as traitors and Capos! It is simply outrageous and unbearable that today again and again Jewish activists are denunciated by the Israel lobbyists and their political and “Christian-Jewish“ helpers as “bad Jews“. They are prohibited from speaking because the Israeli campaign journalists make sure that German politicians and bankers are opposed to BDS supporters and Israel critics. On the other hand, all politicians and supporters of the “Jewish State” are guilty because they defend an illegal occupation policy violating international law!
*
In the meantime, Trump again and again goes away from the democratic rules of the game in the USA. After his lost court decision, he tried to impose an even harder entry ban against Muslims (let us hope that his jurists will not succeed!). In his dangerous national-socialist world order Muslims are divided into not convenient and convenient Muslims according to the principle: “We determine who is a Muslim, and who is not!” And the “Jewish State” and the Israel lobby follow the same patterns; to critics entry stops and deportation are imposed. And also Jews, if they criticise Israel or support the BDS campaign, are divided into “good” and “bad” Jews.
*
The collision course started by the Netanyahu Regime also against U.S. organisations and U.S. citizens, and actually against Human Rights Watch (HRW), proves only how safe this regime feels, reinforced by the support of the Trump Administration. A particularly blatant case is the one of the regional director of Human Rights Watch, U.S. citizen and Muslim Omar Shakir being refused entry permission toIsrael. This case is a new dimension of the internationalisation of the Jewish occupation regime in its struggle against the U.S. human rights organisation.
*
In the letter published by the Israeli Immigration Office about HRW, HRW is accused of being in the service of Palestinian propaganda while mendaciously working under the flag of human rights. (1)
*
A speaker of the Israeli Foreign Ministry called HRW an “anti-Israeli organisation,” while HRW referred to the fact that it had just written critical reports about the Israeli human rights violations, but also about Hamas and the Palestinian Authority of Abbas.
*
From this point of view, the “Jewish State” is seamlessly integrated in the list of countries, from North Korea to Sudan and Uzbekistan, also refusing working permits and visas to international human rights organisations. Also the “Jewish State“ violates all the democratic rules it never complied with. HRW works in more than 90 countries all over the world. This shows that Zionists are afraid of the truth proving their human rights and international rights violations.
*
Also creative artists in the “Jewish State” have for a long time been persecuted by the Netanyahu regime and the Ministry of Culture’s Miri Regev. They face the threat of not getting subsidies if they do not parry, or if they refuse to perform in illegal settlements to entertain settlers.
*
While Regev started a cultural war against artists and famous Israeli artists like Davi Tartakov who call the “Jewish State” a fascist country, the Netanyahu regime and its right-wing minister go on with their fascist laws and methods. The Ministry of Education’s Naftali Bennett even put the recommendable book Borderlife by Dorit Rabynian on the index and prohibited for discussions in class because  it talks about the love of a Jewish woman towards a Palestinian. Of course, Bennett considers this reprehensible because it promotes the assimilation, and so it is not acceptable! (2) (3)
*
If the outrageous, right-wing, Zionist, extra-parliamentarian  movement “Im Tirtzu” (“if you will it”) wants to strengthen Zionism by offering a free interpretation of Herzl, by denigrating artists, authors, and intellectuals, this is more than alarming. Since “Im Tirtzu” finances fifteen colleges and is represented at universities in the “Jewish State.” The organisation is structured like a fascist organisation and has woven its Zionist spider web. One of the main objectives of „”m Tirtzu” is to present the Nakba — the catastrophe of the Palestinians — as a lie – and for that they should classified as holocaust deniers! As my friend Steve Amsel says: Zionists do not fear anything more than they fear the truth.
*
Also the Israeli veteran organisation “Breaking the Silence” is persecuted by Regev. What happened recently in a small art gallery in the artists‘ quarter Nachlaot in Jerusalem, reminds me the procedure of the Israel lobby in Germany! There a representative of “Breaking the Silence” should make a conference about the anonymous statements of former comrades of the “Jewish Defence Forces.” It was about IDF soldiers who were not able to deal with their conscience and the crimes they had committed in the illegally occupied West Bank and in the Gaza Strip. Immediately Regev requested from the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, to prohibit this event in the Barbur Gallery because the speaker was the member of an “anti-Israeli” propaganda organisation spreading lies about the State of Israel and the IDF. Since the Likud member Nir Barkat could not find any reason, he invented that the municipality needed these gallery rooms for another purpose and therefore the gallery should be shut down. (4)
*
However, what may be expected from a colonialist Apartheid State, whose leading politicians, from Netanyahu, Bennet, Shaked to Lieberman, defended the murderous “Jewish defence soldier“ who assassinated in cold blood a defenceless Palestinian lying on the ground with a headshot at close range. For this crime, he has been sentenced by the Israeli Military Tribunal ONLY for manslaughter for only 18 months, while Palestinian children throwing stones as an act of desperate resistance are punished more harshly than Jewish murderers! 
*
Netanyahu, Bennett, and Lieberman asked for the murderer’s pardon, and it may be feared that Azaria will be pardoned after a short time in prison. More than 80% of the Jewish-Israeli population supports the IDF soldiers and call on these to immediately kill Palestinians because a “dead” Palestinian/terrorist cannot kill Jews any more, according to the Mossad principle “Kill as first!” Settlers from the illegally occupied West Bank came in droves  to free the “brave” soldier and per Internet a crowd-funding was organised for the defence of the hero, so that the parents could afford the most famous lawyers in Israel, Yoram Shettel who had already worked for the defence of the Ukrainian Demjanjuk, for the concentration camp supervisor suspect “Ivan the Terrible,” and the most spectacular case of the “rapist-President” Moshe Katzav. Azaria was even acclaimed as man of 2016. All this only shows the deep abasement of morality of this Jewish occupiers‘ regime.
*
This was just the prelude, since when the Belgian Prime Minister Michel was visiting Israel, he “dared” to meet representatives of civil society, of B`Tslem and Breaking the Silence. For Netanyahu the red line was crossed, and he summoned the Belgian Ambassador on the grounds that Belgium had to decide if it would like to maintain the “anti-Israeli line.” Such a meeting organised by Merkel with the NGOs in the “Jewish State” would never be possible or desired! (5) (6)
*
Since the Netanyahu regime is working on a law tightening, that obliges Israeli organisations which receive donations from abroad, to publish this in their budget every three months. This concerns in particular the left-liberal human rights organisations, in contrast with the right, subsidised organisations. Also the European government leaders like the British Theresa May and the Belgian Charles Michel, were called to do anything within their power to dry out these NGOs.
*
How would it be if Jewish organisations in Germany and Europe would be obliged to publish their budget every three months and to make public their national and international donors?
*
In the last edition of “Spiegel” I was alarmed by the interview with Amos Oz, who from the German point of view is the second so called peace activist after David Grossmann, and this gives me serious doubts about a normal “Jewish thinking.” Oz and Grossmann cannot imagine living as a “minority”in Palestine/Israel, and this deeply shocks me. And the frank commitment by Oz that after Trump’s election he wrote a letter to Chancellor Merkel to tell her that she is the “leader” of the free world, makes simply stuns me. This Israeli intellectual payed homage to a chancellor who made of the security of the “Jewish State” a state policy which showed solidarity with Netanyahu when he committed genocide in Gaza and whose party wants to criminalise the BDS movement and is overwhelmed with awards and honorary doctorates by the Israel lobby.
*
Oz is right when he says that the Hitler-Stalin Pact has brought 60 years refusal of armament and violence. However, exactly in the “Jewish State” we have been experiencing 69 years of armament, violence, racism, and militarism. Oz is right only in one thing: the Israelis did not come as liberators, but as occupiers. If he still believes in the mantra of the Two-State-Solution because he cannot imagine a cohabitation in a State as Jewish minority, then we can imagine how beautiful the new future of Palestine will be under the guideline of Zionism over the head  of the Palestinian, local population. It will be the evil and it will be careless of the suffering of the others! (7)
*
Trump and Netanyahu both use the vocabulary of totalitarian regimes, they both use compliant media for themselves, and silence “enemies” of their politics, they introduce legal entry bans, build walls, and promote racism. So it is time to be alert. Yes, the “leading media“ are right. Trump is a dangerous splitter and warmonger. Trump plans the “historical increase” of the recent military budget of 51 billion Euros, so that America will not just be great, but also the strongest nuclear power. This should make all his left and right supporters fear. It is planned to reduce international cooperation, the budget of the Foreign Ministry and the budget of the Environmental Authority EPA. The same applies to social support programs! Trump will also frustrate all those who would like to see him through the Putin glasses, since nothing will change with Russia. Also for Palestine no hope was born. On the contrary, thanks to Trump, Netanyahu feels winged to finally feel free to judaise Palestine and to engage for “Eretz Israel.”
*
Also Chancellor Merkel has reacted with understanding to the request by the Trump Government to increase the German defence expenses. Germany has to meet its obligations.
*
Which obligations does Merkel mean? To “lead” the provocations of the NATO in the frontline or to conduct military campaigns all over the world in order to bomb “our hypocritical values” into the world, 70 years after the liberation of Auschwitz?
*
I am always critical towards media, if they write tendentious reports, or even worse, if they do not talk about something at all. For what concerns omissions, the German media are masters. In fact, US media, from New York Times to Washington Post, are definitively ahead of us in research and  clarification. Fake news media and fake politicians should be unmasked, since they are the enemies of the people. So what do Trump and Netanyahu have in common? They are dangerous racists and militarists, who cannot stand the truth.

Muslim Activists Vow to Help After Second Act of Vandalism at Jewish Cemetery

Muslim American activist Tarek El-Messidi teamed up with fellow activist Linda Sarsour last week to raise funds to rebuild the Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, where hundreds of headstones were desecrated. On Sunday, the attack hit much closer to home, as a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, his home town, became the target of a similar attack, with up to 500 tombstones being hit.

Speaking to Haaretz on his way to the Mt. Carmel Jewish cemetery, El-Messidi, 36, says he wants to see how some of the funds raised last week can be diverted to help rebuild the Mt. Carmel cemetery in Philadelphia.

Israeli Drone Can Read Your Computer’s Secrets

If your computer is “air-gapped” (i.e. not plugged into any network) it’s safe, right?

Well, as the Stuxnet virus that infected Iranian computers and destroyed their nuclear centrifuges showed — not so much. The real trick is to infect the air-gapped computer, and there are plenty of human weak links.

However, if the aim is to steal information, rather than just destroy hardware, software or data, things are trickier.

That’s where Mordechai Guri and his team at the Cyber Security Research Center come in. From the guys who brought you US Bee where malware causes a regular USB thumb drive to emit particular electromagnetic waves that another computer with a simple antennae can pick up and decode, comes LED-It-Go.

The system is outlined and contextualized in an article by Wired, but essentially, the malware convinces the blinking LEDs common to Windows system computers to blink super-fast and to reveal information to a drone with a video camera that is as far away as video contact can be effectively established.

So the wrong card in your computer and any passing drone can read your worst secrets — even if you aren’t linked to the internet.

Fortunately the security patch for this is as simple as a pair of scissors and some duct tape to tape over the LEDs. But next time might be more difficult.

ILLUSIONS OF DEMOCRACY

More than 200 European legal scholars have signed a statement affirming that the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian freedom, justice and equality represents “a lawful exercise of freedom of expression.” 

I see democracy hanging on by a mere thread in most places where democracy is claimed to be exercised.

The West’s Comforting Illusions Of Democracy — But Without Any Significant Political Representation

by William Hanna
Despite legal recognition of that fact, however, the BDS movement as it gathers momentum and becomes more effective, is having its activities criminalised while being increasingly attacked — in order to discredit its lawful and peaceful support for the legal and human rights of the Palestinian people — for allegedly promoting discrimination and/or anti-Semitism.
*
A recently released Ekos poll has, however, discovered that 46 percent of Canadians, including a majority of those supporting every party except the Conservatives, had a negative view of Israel. The Canadian government was regarded as having a pro-Israel bias by 61 per cent of respondents, while 91 percent did not think criticism of Israeli government policies was necessarily anti-semitic. The results suggest that Canada’s major political parties are out of step with the Canadian people on those issues. Furthermore, during almost 18 months in office, the Trudeau government had voted against no less than sixteen UN resolutions critical of Israel.
*
The apparent discrepancy between how people view Israel’s Apartheid policies and the unconditional support provided for such policies by their elected representatives is not a conundrum requiring  exceptional powers of deduction: the answer is simply “blackmail, bribery, and bullying.”
*
In his insightful book, They Dare to Speak Out, Paul Findley stated that during J.F. Kennedy’s campaign for president in 1960, he had a meeting with some prominent Jews. Kennedy was very insulted when one of the Jews said they knew Kennedy’s campaign was in financial difficulty and that he and his Jewish friends would “help and help significantly” John Kennedy’s campaign if, as president, Kennedy “would allow them to set the course of Middle East policy over the next four years.”
*
That meeting convinced JFK that he should seek a law that would have the U.S. Treasury pay a set and equal amount for all politicians running for president who secured a to be determined percentage of signatures of the people supporting their campaign. In his 1991 book The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy, Seymour Hersh stated that Kennedy  “saw this as the only way to prevent the nightmare of today, which has not only the President, but the overwhelming majority of people in Congress bought and paid for by the very powerful Israeli lobby.”
*
Such brazen subversion of American democracy by the Jewish lobby had already been ongoing long before the 1960s because shortly after his inauguration in March 1913 as the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson was visited in the White House by Ashkenazi Jew, Samuel Untermyer, of law firm, Guggenheim, Untermyer, and Marshall. Untermyer tried to blackmail Wilson for $40,000 with regards to an affair Wilson had with a fellow professor’s wife at Princeton University. As Wilson did not have the money, Untermyer offered to pay the $40,000 himself to the woman in question on condition that Wilson promised to appoint a nominee recommended by Untermyer to the first available vacancy on the United States Supreme Court which subsequently occurred when Louis Brandeis became the first Jewish Justice on the highest U.S. federal court.
*
Brandeis then became active in the Federation of American Zionists thereby providing the nascent American Zionist movement with a most distinguished man in American life and a friend of the next president; devoted a great deal of his time, energy, and money to championing the Zionist cause; and was elected president of the Provisional Executive Committee for Zionist Affairs which was established after the outbreak of World War One in Europe when the divided allegiance of the World Zionist Organisation’s membership had made it impotent. As the leader and spokesperson of American Zionism from 1914 to 1918, Brandeis embarked on a speaking tour in the fall and winter of 1914–1915 to trump up support for the Zionist cause by emphasising the goal of self-determination and freedom for Jews through the development of a Jewish homeland. Similar self determination and freedom, however, are concepts forbidden to the American people with the ghost of Brandeis  — in the form of the Louis D. Brandeis Centre — actively supporting Apartheid Israel while working tirelessly to oppose the effectiveness of BDS.
*
Unlike most American Jews at the time, Brandies felt that while the re-creation of a Jewish national homeland was one of the key solutions to antisemitism and the “Jewish problem” in Europe and Russia, it would also be a way to “revive the Jewish spirit.” He explained the importance of Zionism in a famous speech to a conference of Reform Rabbis in April 1915 in which he also felt obliged to mention that Zionism and patriotism were compatible concepts and should not lead to charges of “dual loyalty.” Nonetheless — it was felt by many Americans — that his first allegiance was not to “we the people” of American democracy.
*
“The Zionists seek to establish this home in Palestine because they are convinced that the undying longing of Jews for Palestine is a fact of deepest significance; that it is a manifestation in the struggle for existence by an ancient people which has established its right to live, a people whose three thousand years of civilisation has produced a faith, culture and individuality which enable it to contribute largely in the future, as it has in the past, to the advance of civilisation; and that it is not a right merely but a duty of the Jewish nationality to survive and develop. They believe that only in Palestine can Jewish life be fully protected from the forces of disintegration; that there alone can the Jewish spirit reach its full and natural development; and that by securing for those Jews who wish to settle there the opportunity to do so, not only those Jews, but all other Jews will be benefited, and that the long perplexing Jewish Problem will, at last, find solution.”
*
Finding the solution to that “long perplexing Jewish problem,” has unfortunately come at a colossal cost not only to U.S. taxpayers with hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars in aid to Israel, but also to the Palestinian people whose almost seven decades of ethnic cleansing has included the barbaric obliteration of their heritage, history, and human rights by a mighty military machine subsidised by the U.S. government on behalf of the American people despite the fact that 46 percent of them support imposing sanctions on Israel because its defiant settlement policies.
*
It would appear America’s subjugation by the Jewish lobby was also a source of amazement to the Jewish lobbyists themselves who could not believe the ease with which the goyim were hoodwinked and manipulated. In a 1976 confidential and controversial interview, Harold Wallace Rosenthal — a Jewish administrative assistant to one of America’s ranking senators, Jacob Javits R-NY — after admitting Jewish dominance in all significant national programs, said “it is a marvel that the American people do not rise up and drive every Jew out of this country.” Rosenthal added that “we Jews continue to be amazed with the ease by which Christian Americans have fallen into our hands. While the naive Americans wait for Khrushchev to bury them, we have taught them to submit to our every demand.”
*
When asked how a nation could be taken over without their knowing it, Rosenthal attributed success to the absolute control of the media. He boasted of Jewish control of all news with any newspaper refusing to submit to Jewish control of news being brought to its knees by withdrawal of advertising. Failing in that, “It’s a very simple matter,” the Jews wouldstop the supply of news print and ink. As to the question of men in high political office, Rosenthal replied that no one since 1976 had achieved any political power without Jewish approval. “Americans have not had a presidential choice since 1932. Roosevelt was our man; every president since Roosevelt has been our man.”
*
Whether or not the current occupant of the White House is “Israel’s man” is of no real consequence because Donald Trump’s innate racism, deranged tendencies, and undisguised promotion of Islamophobia are in any case compatible with Israel’s arrogant and arbitrary policies of barbaric discrimination, displacement, and destruction. The one potentially positive aspect of Trump’s presidency, however, is that his self obsessed insanity might hopefully wake up the otherwise somnambulant American people; alert them to the dangers threatening their fundamental rights as prescribed in the U.S. Bill of Rights; and prompt them to rise up with a righteous indignation that forcefully demands Congressional removal of a dangerous and deluded demagogue.
*
In the meantime European nationals must shed their fear of being stigmatised as anti-Semites and finally take responsibility for ensuring that their political leaders — who as “Friends of Israel” are invariably susceptible to pro-Israel lobby blackmail, bribery, and bullying — refrain from their usual mealy mouthed hypocrisy regarding the “only democracy in the Middle East” and its right to “defend itself” with the “most moral army in the world,” and instead start representing both the interests of their own countries and the sovereignty of the people who elected them.
*
Sovereignty exists within and flows from the people of a country. Their collective right to choose their governmental, political and electoral systems is a vital aspect of their self-determination. The authority of government also derives from the will of the people who having chosen those systems have a right to participate in their government through genuine elections that determine who will legitimately occupy governmental offices.

Such precepts are incorporated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in modern constitutions the world over where they formed the basis for the well known formulation that democratic government is “of the people, by the people and for the people.” In essence, that means that governments, governmental processes, and elections, all belong to the people. There can be no democracy without citizen participation which is consequently both a right and a responsibility of the citizens in establishing and developing a sustainable democracy wherein a free press must go hand in hand with Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

THESE HOLLYWOOD STARS DESERVE A SPECIAL OSCAR

Let’s call it the ‘I DON’T ENDORSE ISRAELI APARTHEID AWARD’

Israel invited 26 Hollywood stars on all-expense paid trips to the Holy Land around the 2016 Academy Awards, but a year later none of them have visited, Agence France-Presse reported.

These 26 Hollywood Stars All Shunned $55K Israel Junket In Oscars Swag Bag

Israel invited 26 Hollywood stars on all-expense paid trips to the Holy Land around the 2016 Academy Awards, but a year later none of them have visited, Agence France-Presse reported.

Activists with the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel are calling it a victory that Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and two dozen other stars have failed to make a Holy Land appearance.

“I think it is clear the objective of using the actors to whitewash Israel has failed,” said Yousef Munayyer of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights.

The trips, estimated to be worth $55,000 each, were given as part of a gift package to the stars, which also included luxury toilet paper.

The only star to take advantage of the trip was Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, who reportedly gave it to her parents.

This month, eight out of 13 members of delegation of American pro football players dropped out of an Israel visit over concerns that Israel was using them to score public relations points.

Let's see if the award mentioned above really happens ;)

PALESTINE HOPED TO BE GREAT AGAIN UNDER TRUMP ~~ IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN

While the US continues to turn a blind eye to settlement expansion, the international community and the EU in particular are left with the responsibility of ensuring that everyday life in the Palestinian enclaves does not collapse. Time for a rethink, argue policy analysts Sam Bahour and Mousa Jiryis

Resolving the Israel-Palestine conflict

Resolving the Israel-Palestine conflict

Expect nothing from Trump

By Sam Bahour and Mousa Jiryis

If Donald Trump′s statements about abandoning the two-state solution are actually true, then a sovereign Palestinian state is no longer consistent with US foreign policy. Indeed, most commentators would be inclined to agree that this era will witness an unprecedented acceleration in settlement building and retroactive licensing of outposts built on private Palestinian land. Donald Trump, it appears, will do nothing to stop or rebuke such a policy, having watered down the tired old US rhetoric of ″settlements are an obstacle to peace″ to settlements ″may not be helpful″ to peace. So their construction can continue, indefinitely.

In light of this reality, Europe must recognise that ″the US leads″ approach to resolving the conflict is doomed to failure. There appears little possibility of the elusive peace happening anytime during Trump′s presidency. Historically, the US-leads approach has typically served to give Israel′s settlement enterprise time and space to further entrench itself, thereby making the realisation of a two-state solution increasingly impossible. It is blindingly clear – in light of two decades of failed negotiations under US auspices – that US leadership of conflict resolution efforts is pointless and counter-productive.

Independent European approach long overdue

If Europe′s policy is to achieve two states for two peoples, it will have to pursue an independent policy position that circumvents the Americans. Europe′s political influence in this arena has long been negligible, given US primacy in conflict resolution.

In short, Europe has relied on the wrong leadership for too long. This tragic, historic mistake has not only cost European taxpayers billions, but has also led to a reality that is the diametric opposite of what European policy-makers intended. After 24 years, reliance on American ″leadership″ has led to the creation of numerous Palestinian Bantustans, surrounded by an occupying military power that continues to occupy with impunity, bankrolled by European taxpayers: the EU and its member states are by far the largest donors to the Palestinians.

Israel – delighted that another party is willing to subsidise its military occupation – continues to expand and consolidate its settlement enterprise, with the support of large sections of the American public and government.

Historically, the US and EU have shared a common objective of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the framework of a two-state solution. With the assumption of Trump to the presidency, the Republicans now control all three branches of US government, with majorities in both the House and Senate. This has coincided with a significant shift to the right in the GOP′s policy to Israel-Palestine. By contrast, Europeans have moved towards recognition of the State of Palestine. Sweden′s recognition is now official while parliaments in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, France, Luxembourg, not to mention the European Parliament, have all approved recognition.

America is part of the problem

America supports occupation. Europe inadvertently subsidises occupation. This regrettable logic is an accurate description of current reality. The Trump administration will do little to antagonise its own party or risk the wrath of Israel′s influential pro-settlement lobby in the US. Trump will continue to advocate a hands-off, ″it′s up to the two parties to decide″ approach. As a result, Israel, which has all the power, has little incentive to concede, while the Palestinians, who have no power, and are supposedly ″protected″ under international law, are left to their despair.

The continuing domination of mediation efforts by the US has created a perverse reality which dictates that there is no peace; and no traction towards peace at any time in the near future. While commentators have busied themselves picking at the rotting carcass of the so-called peace process and apportioning blame for its failure, few have dared to state the obvious: America is part of the problem, not the solution.

Protected by its patron

Israeli intransigence and blatant violation of international law is fuelled by its belief that, no matter what it does, the US will always insulate it from meaningful rebuke. Palestinian desperation is driven by a conviction that America′s overwhelming support to Israel makes negotiations pointless, as Israel has little incentive to concede when it receives so much money, weapons and political support for its settlement project.

In summary, under Trump′s leadership, the US will undoubtedly turn a blind eye to settlement expansion, while the international community and the EU in particular will be left with the responsibility of ensuring that everyday life in the Palestinian enclaves does not collapse, through massive injections of aid monies – a state of affairs inspired by Israeli excesses ad infinitum made possible by US support or indifference.

So what can Europe do? Europe can ′roll up its sleeves′, play power politics and take on the occupier, without waiting for American leadership to produce results. If the experiences of Bosnia, Kosovo, East Timor and South Africa are anything to go by, an occupier or an apartheid regime will only change its ways with a nuanced combination of sanctions, international isolation and, as a last resort, military force.

The EU must rise to the occasion and demonstrate to its constituents that European money and credibility are more important than indulging in American charades of impartiality. It is clear that America has no moral or political qualms with Israel remaining an occupying force.

Once Europe finally acknowledges this reality and moves on, it will find the strength and legitimacy to propose policies of its own, in line with its European neighbourhood objectives and its own moral standards.

Elor Azaria verdict, or, how Israel court system whitewash war crimes

Palestinian who filmed shooting says Azaria sentence ‘is a joke, not justice’

An Israeli court on Tuesday sentenced Elor Azaria to 18 months in prison, one-year probation and a demotion of his military rank, a month after the Israeli soldier was found guilty of manslaughter.

Azaria shot and killed Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif in March after al-Sharif had already been shot and injured following an alleged attempted stabbing attack in Hebron.

Following the court’s sentencing, Azaria’s defense vowed to appeal the ruling, while several high-ranking Israeli politicians called for a pardon in his case.

The main evidence in the case was footage caught on camera by Imad Abu Shamsiya, a Palestinian resident of Hebron who had been provided a camera by Human Rights Defenders specifically to document instances such as the shooting and other human rights violations in Hebron.

Abu Shamsiya told Mondoweiss he is grateful he was around to film the incident, because without the camera footage he feels certain Azaria would never have been taken to court, let alone serve time in prison.

“If there was no one filming that day then this crime, just like other crimes like it that happen against Palestinians on a daily basis, would go unnoticed,” Abu Shamsiya said. “I am so grateful for the camera, and so grateful I was in the right place at the right time.”

While Shamsiya is happy the world got to see what happened on that day in March, he does not feel like justice was served.

“There is no justice for the family,” Abu Shamsiya said. “They lost a member of their family in a very brutal way, this 18-month sentence is not justice for the family, for the Palestinian people or our nation — no one got justice from this.”

Sahar Francis, the director of Addameer, a Palestinian prisoners’ rights NGO, criticized the sentencing, telling Mondoweiss that an 18-month sentence for an “extrajudicial execution” of a Palestinian “brings to light the policy of impunity and lack of accountability in a system of protracted Israeli military occupation.”

“The period of sentencing is similar to sentencing routinely given to Palestinians for ‘membership in an illegal organization’ – with all Palestinian political parties deemed illegal through various military orders,” Francis said. “The message this sends to other soldiers and police officers who extrajudicially execute Palestinians is that their actions will not be seriously accounted for and that impunity will persist.”

Meanwhile, the Israeli right has lauded Azaria as a hero who killed a Palestinian terrorist, attacking the Israeli military and the Israeli justice system for allowing the case to go forward, while calling for Azaria’s pardon.According to Israeli daily Haaretz, judges said Azaria acted with the intent to kill, outside of Israeli military protocol, which requires a threat to life before live fire can be used. The judge also said the severity of the shooting and backlash it caused to the Israeli military was mitigated since the shooting happened during an active combat situation.

After Azaria was found guilty of manslaughter January, Ido Zelkovitz, head of the Middle East studies department at Max Stern Academic College of Emek Yezreel and senior researcher at the University of Haifa told Mondoweiss that both sides of the Israeli political spectrum agreed on one thing — Azaria shot a terrorists in their eyes — which in the end, he said would indeed lead to a pardon after Azaria serves a small part of his sentence.

“Even if he was unarmed and he couldn’t put anyone in danger, the common idea among all the Israeli camps is that Azaria shot a terrorist and there is no debate about that question — it is a mutual understanding. That is why in the future the pardon will be accepted,” Zelkovitz said.

Abu Shamsiya agreed, telling Mondoweiss that he would be shocked if Azaria was actually made to serve his full sentence.

“Of course he won’t be made to serve his full sentence — the sentence is a joke, not justice, it’s 18 months in prison for murder,” Abu Shamsiya said. “Not only do I doubt he will even serve a full prison sentence, I doubt he will be put on any kind of probation or be demoted in the military.”

“This case shows us the injustice of the Israeli government,” he added. “This was just a show for the world to see because this execution was filmed, so the government felt it had to do something.”

Israeli Apartheid Week 2017

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an international series of events meant to shed a light on the settler colonial project and apartheid policies of Israel and build the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

This year will mark 100 years of Palestinian resistance against settler colonialism, since the inception of the Balfour Declaration. IAW will be an opportunity to reflect on this resistance and further advance BDS campaigns for the continued growth and impact of the movement. Despite all the legislative attacks on BDS internationally, IAW and the BDS movement continue to build linkages and solidarity with other struggles to achieve freedom, justice, and equality.

For IAW at Columbia, we’ve organized a week of programming meant to educate about Palestine, its history and struggles, as well as how it intersects with other indigenous struggles around the world.

As per tradition, Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine will be installing our mock apartheid wall for display on Low Plaza Mon-Fri, Feb 27-March 3rd from 11am to 4pm. Columbia/Barnard Jewish Voice for Peace will be tabling at the Sun Dial. Drop by for fact sheets, information on events, and for answers to any other questions you have.

Zionists are Racists
Monday, February 27th
8-10 pm
Math 203

In November, 1975 the United Nations passed the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, a resolution that declared “Zionism is Racism.” With the support of newly liberated African nations, the bill recognized the supremacist ideology of the Israeli nation-state that had predicated its settler colony upon racial apartheid and ethnic cleansing.

Come learn about Israel’s racist and imperialist policies and hear Barney Pityana, leading figure in the Black Consciousness Movement and the South African Students’ Organisation, as well as a close comrade of Steve Biko, will discuss what the BDS struggle looks from the perspective of South Africa.

50 Years of Occupation: The 1967 Naksa with Prof. Rashid Khalidi
Wednesday, March 1st
7:30-9:30pm
Roone Arledge Cinema, Lerner Hall
NON CUID MUST RSVP TO THIS EVENT

On June 5th, 1967, Israel launched a massive unilateral airstrike on Egyptian territory, destroying the Egyptian Air Force and initiating the Six-Day War between Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt. By the end of the war, the Israeli military had occupied the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, as well as the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian Golan Heights. Immediately after occupation, Israel initiated the “second wave” of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine – the Naksa, or “setback” – beginning with mass village demolitions and resulting in the displacement of 300,000 Palestinians and 100,000 Syrians from their homes, adding to the 750,000 Palestinians who had been displaced from their homes in the 1948 Nakba, or “catastrophe.”

To this day, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights remain subjugated under a brutal Israeli military occupation, denied basic human needs like water, electricity, and medical care, and subject to regular civilian massacres by the occupation forces. Most recently, the 2014 assault on Gaza left 2,235 Palestinian civilians dead, including more than 500 children, over the course of 51 days.

As part of Israeli Apartheid Week, join Columbia University Apartheid Divest in remembering the victims of the Naksa, recognizing the 50th year of subsequent military occupation, and discussing its lasting impact on the 69 year Palestinian freedom struggle. Learn how the UN Security Council’s 1967 Resolution 242, condemning Israel’s actions and calling for the right of return for all displaced Palestinian refugees, laid the groundwork for the Palestinian civil society call for Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel – a call we hope to honor by pressuring Columbia’s administration to divest its $10 billion endowment from companies that profit from the occupation.

Palestine in U.S. Politics: Israel, AIPAC, and American Foreign Policy
Thursday, March 2nd
6-9 pm
Broadway Room, Lerner Hall
NON CUID MUST RSVP TO THIS EVENT

Israel commands a very strategic role in American foreign interests, representing an integral ally to the US in the Middle East. Israel is the largest recipient of American foreign aid and, just recently, President Obama signed a $38 billion military aid package, solidifying the close relationship between the two nations. President Trump has continuously cited Israel as an inspiration for his racist immigration policies and Prime Minister Netanyahu reciprocally voiced his support for Trump’s plan to build a wall.

Join Columbia University Apartheid Divest as we discuss the place of Palestine in the American political discourse. We are proud to host Professor Joseph Massad from the Middle Eastern, South Asian and African studies department who will share his views on the discourse about Palestine in US Politics, the unique role that Israel plays in US national interests, and the significance of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in determining the US’ foreign policy towards Palestine and the Middle East region more generally.

Israeli Settler: Blame Muslims And Leftists For US Anti-Semitism

Who’s to blame for rising anti-Semitism in America? Nazis? White nationalists?

No, says the former mayor of a settlement in the West Bank — it’s leftists and Muslims.

“We need to be talking about the Islamo-Nazis and the far left Nazis,” said David Rubin, onetime mayor of the Shiloh settlement north of Jerusalem. He spoke Tuesday on Fox News with host Stuart Varney. They discussed a recent spate of bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers and the vandalizing of an historic Jewish cemetery in St. Louis. Police are investigating the cemetery defacement as a possible hate crime. No suspects have been announced.
