Guten Morgen - Tässle Kaffee? ☕️

Hammer-Nerd-Satz von Hans #Blumenberg in „Arbeit am Mythos“ zum Sonntag: „Die gnostische Dämonisierung der Welt macht die Lage des Menschen in ihr zum Notstand.“ Vgl. #QAnon, #Querdenken, #Rechtsextremismus, #BDS, #Daesh…
Für noch sehr unterschätzt halte ich den #Gnosis-Schaden durch sog. Crash-Propheten (!) wie #MaxOtte & #MarkusKrall, die mit pseudo-ökonom. Wissenschaftsleugnung inkl. #Verschwörungsmythen Ängste schüren & Papiergeld abzocken. Via @VerschwoerungYT
Als Kollege Felix Klein, @anetta2552 & @KuehniKev mit dem antisemitischen Verschwörungsmythos des sog. #Kulturmarxismus angegriffen wurden, verteidigte ich sie. 👇 #Krall klagte gegen mich & verlor. Verschwörungsunternehmern geht es nicht um #Freiheit!…

1| I try to focus on a single story in every post, but I want us to have proportions. So let's compare and contrast #Israel's response to @benandjerrys's not wanting to be complicit in its #WarCrimes, to Israel's actual war crimes.…
2| The beautiful soul in this picture is 11 year-old Mohammad ‘Allami, who was executed by Israel's army, when he was convincing his daddy to go back to a shop to by him something. Mohammad's sister was also in the car, she wasn't physically injured.
3| Mohammad 'Allami is the 312th indigenous #Palestinian to be killed by Israel's army since the beginning of 2021, the 52nd to be executed in the #WestBank, the 76th #child executed in total, the11th child to be executed in the West Bank.

1| #Ceasefire rages on as the #OnlyDemocracyInTheMiddleEast™ continues street #executions, and corpse abduction of #indigenous people under its military regime 👇 #NotTheOnion🍍… #Israel #ceaseapartheid
2| Israel's army shot and killed Shadi Salim (41), at #Beita junction, making him the 311th indigenous #Palestinian, to be killed by Israel's army since the beginning of 2021, and the 51st Palestinian to be killed from the #WestBank.
3| Israel's last #execution was carried out just 6 days ago, when soldiers invaded the town of #NabiSaleh, and shot 16 year-old Mohammad Tamimi in the back.

2| What caught my eye in this @guardian article was the quote:

“In Israel there is a strong political movement to make #diplomacy through #business. Business first, diplomacy later. When you make a deal together, it opens a lot of doors to diplomacy.”
3| The notion that #profits trump #consent is rather disturbing, but perfectly in line with the product- #spyware.

2| There's probably not a single person on the planet who hasn't heard the earth shattering news:
Ben & Jerry's will no longer sell ice cream to Israelis living in occupied #Palestinian land.

Along with @AdalahJustice & @Mvmnt4BlkLives, we welcome Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop sales in illegal Israeli Jewish-only settlements, and we call on Unilever to align with the Ben & Jerry’s board to end all business with apartheid Israel.

Until then, the boycott continues.
Key points:
1. This is a significant partial victory & step forward, signaling a hard-fought narrative shift toward Palestinian liberation in the US

2. The unwavering fight for justice isn’t over. The boycott continues until Ben & Jerry’s ends all business with apartheid Israel

.@thetimes erroneously claims that #BDS is only detested by Israel and "the American right"
@thetimes Their journalist omitted the views of diaspora Jews.

A major EU poll of European Jews (including Britons) conducted in 2018 showed “82% of Jews classed calls by non-Jews to boycott Israel or Israelis as anti-Semitic”.
A poll of British Jews by Campaign Against Antisemitism in 2020 found that “83% felt intimidated by tactics used to boycott Israel”.

Katie Hopkins is a mindless husk of commoditised hatred whose proximity to human creatures is a public health concern but for fluff's sake could you possibly not (a) cheer any visa denial by Home Affairs ever (b) also boycott, say, Israel when I fucken email you about it #BDS
what the fuck is it with you knowledge class bags of sick and your unstinting love for experts, authority and the state? why can't you (a) show your arse to a despicably racist cardboard cut-out *before* you get the memo (a) occasionally consider autonomous, non-sponsored dissent
Yes this Hopkins atrocity is unfit to launder the jizz-sock of Satan etc but if just one of you prominent pigs who today so strenuously declare the obvious could occasionally do a "oh look the us has brutally ousted the democratically elected first indigenous Bolivian president"

When you donated to #BlackLivesMatter you were giving to the most effective anti-Israel, antisemitic, pro-#BDS organization in the world, helping spread potent disinformation that includes #DeadlyExchange as well #ESMC for high school and college students.

You deserve the truth

So it’s not just Palestine… while you can happily share a Coke with USA, you cannot with Russia.

Oddly, you CAN with the USSR (looks like they missed a trick there).

- Encore plus à l'extrême droite que Benyamin Netanyahu -

#Israël #Palestine #Netanyahu #Bennett #BDS Image
Après 12 ans au pouvoir, Benyamin Netanyahu premier ministre d'Israël, nationaliste et pro-colon, perd sa place. Malgré sa politique en faveur de la colonisation largement soutenue en Israël, ses affaires de corruption pour ses intérêts personnels ont eu raison de son poste.
Dimanche 13 juin, c’est donc un autre sioniste extrême qui prends le pouvoir : Naftali #Bennett, pas un inconnu pour les Israéliens.

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine
#SheikJarrah #Silwan #Jerusalem #Gaza #EqualityforAll #OneLove
Full thread in 1 convenient viewing location here:…
I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

Since I'm on about lifestyle changes and how we can move activism off social media posts and into real life, well most times there's not much one can do.
But. There's always something.
In re Israeli occupation and war crimes and sustained assholery in #Palestine for decades+
+ while the world allows and enables it for some twisted illogical apologia about Nazi Germany (makes no sense at all). All I can do from home is amplify, post, talk about #Palestine on socmedia. But #BDS is real and effective. It just needs to take off. 🇵🇸
And so #BDS (boycott, divest, sanctions) is a small thing I've been doing for the last decade or so.
Avoiding companies that support Isareli occupation or perpetuate it. In India the big ones I avoid are Nestle, HP, Motorola, Intel, Puma, Pillsbury.

Mainstream media has spent days reporting on Israeli coalition talks without mentioning that the man slated to be new PM - Naftali Bennett - has bragged about "kill[ing] lots of Arabs"; and the #2 in Bennett's party - Ayalet Shaked - has called for genocide against Palestinians;
Referring to the above as "conservative" or "hardline" is normalizing Israeli apartheid & violence against Palestinians. There should be no coverage that doesn't mention & condemn the violent racism and ethno-national-religious supremacy embodied by Bennett and his party.
Don't applaud an Arab/Muslim party in the coalition without mentioning that one of the major obstacles to forming the coalition was the fact that the Jewish Israeli parties objected to the thought of an Arab party in the coalition.

The @nytimes front page story on the children killed in Gaza was based on info from an NGO w/ known ties to the PFLP- a recognized terror group in the US. 1/6
DCI-P accuses Israel of abusing Palestinian minors, while erasing connections to terrorism.

Its coverage of last week's stabbing in Jerusalem is the perfect example:

Our research shows that at least 11 current or former board members and employees at @DCIPalestine have connections to the PFLP terror group.

Here are photos of a senior official of the organization at a PFLP event. 3/6

You think it’s bad now? Wait until CA’s #ESMC for CSU and high school students kicks in which teaches Jews are ‘privileged’, that Israel is a racist regime, that Dr. King (Zionist) was weak, and requires students to join the #BDS movement.

Compliments of your tax dollars.

Today there is a general strike in Palestine for freedom. For my part, let me explain how I came to support peaceful boycotting, divestment and sanctions against Israeli institutions. For me, it’s a way to live out my deepest values of love and justice.... Thread
First, many do the Palestinian communities and leaders whom I admire the most asked me to observe the boycott. When they did, I was ready. I started formally studying Palestine in high school—my prep school had a whole class on what they called the conflict.
In 1992, I went to live for a semester with a family in Beit Safafa, a neighborhood of Jerusalem divided in the 1948 by Jordan and Israel. Most days I took Bus 14 in Talpiot to Kikar Zion where my study abroad office had an office. This is the downtown of modern West Jerusalem.

I mean since she teaches Yiddish lit here's an ep about Yiddish internationalism and Doikayt w/ @mollycrabapple…

+ yesterday's ep w/ @MayaSchkolne…

The ideals many Jewish anti-fascists died for are not present in the Israeli state.
The fact that she says that Jewish-Americans need to fight the war of words on behalf of Israel is both cynical and dangerous, and it also shows how f-ing terrified the conservative Jewish American establishment is by the fact that so many Jewish-Americans are to their left.
They have no answer to that, and their responses are increasingly irrational. They spent their entire lives banking on the fact that it's easy to demonize Palestinians in the West, and that's getting less easy to do with the younger generations.

My heart is with the Palestinian people, you should not be suffering under the US backed military occupation and oppression. My ancestors tell me that wicked humans will use any excuse to justify their hatred and aggression. Because tyrants live in fear, they do not want to
suffer the fate of free people. They would ultimately rather be complacent than truly free. That is a sickness of greed and capitalism. A never ending hunger for power. It is disgusting, it is inexcusable. I fully support #BDS of Israel and I reject the US' support of their
military. Not only must we use our collective force and labor to withhold capitol from these oppressors we must domestically withhold our power and labor. We must commit to a stay at home strike in solidarity to people suffering oppression globally. It is on brand for the

Uncomfortable seeing these? Not as uncomfortable as the parents who saw their children murdered by Israel!


In #Jersey we have a lot of money from the apartheid state of Israel! Our @GovJersey actively seeks a closer relationship with this racist, terrorist entity!

The United States funds this continual human rights violator to the tune of $3.8 Billion EVERY YEAR!
3. Our UK government @BorisJohnson has condemned the International Criminal Court's plan to investigate their crimes. The UK allows Israel to sell its weapons "battle tested" on Palestinians in arms conventions in the UK & to set up shop, such as with Elbit!
