Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.

MIT has a dirty money problem. From convicted sex-offenders, to undemocratic totalitarian governments, to climate denying/delaying fossil fuel interests & libertarian billionaires, there seems to be nobody my alma mater won't take cash from. THREAD. 1/n
2/n: I spent years alongside fellow students & faculty urging @MIT to cut ties with fossil fuel companies, only to see our appeals fall on deaf ears. Thus, revelations about MIT's alleged concealed ties to #Epstein are despicable & embarrassing, yet not altogether surprising.
3/n: MIT is a place that on the one hand condemns Saudi Arabia's human rights abuses, yet on the other can rationalize continuing to do business with both the kingdom and its government-controlled companies. nytimes.com/2019/07/03/mag… chronicle.com/article/MIT-Of…

"The current Homestead contract with the Department of Health and Human Services is worth up to $220 million."

Energy decisions have transboundary impacts. Yet assessments of large-scale energy infrastructure (e.g. EIS) rarely consider upstream/downstream emissions. Justice implications are completely omitted. Net effect = incomplete & flawed energy decisions (2)
The old Salem plant burned coal from La Guajira, Colombia. Fracked gas from PA, USA, now supplies the new gas-fired station*. Decision-makers ignored the ‘upstream’ injustices experienced by both communities. (3)
