I asked @caisersoze84 to explain why Hebron Arabs massacred their Jewish neighbors -all former Ottoman subjects- of many centuries in 1929. They were not "settlers" nor European.
This was his answer:
Albert Londres asked same question' got same kind of answer. To paraphrase roughly: Jews are attached to their ancestral homeland; the only way to deal with Zionism is to massacre all Jews.
If I'm misinterpret these answers, I'd like someone to clarify what they mean.

In acknowledging the withdrawal, I want to clarify, the 73 yr context and lead up to events is lost here. 200+ Palestinians killed in Gaza. Artists not criticised – Sydney Festival and its partnership is. Artists with moral courage set the terms. We'll focus on them + their shows
Please support the artists – links to those doing their shows independently are here. And while I welcome the act of withdrawing, I feel most indebted to artists who put out beautiful, unapologetic statements of solidarity. Uplift them and #freepalestine. linktr.ee/boycottsydfest
We hope that the @sydney_festival board recompenses artists for harm and loss incurred, and we hope that board members, current or withdrawn, learn deeply about the Palestinian Nakba and apartheid Israel's policies. This is not a both sides thing. There is much to be learned here

I like @mrbenjaminlaw.

Ben is one member of a whole Board.

It seems marginally unfair to pay out on one Board member for joint decision making.

I do see, however, that @HelenRazer made a red hot attempt to explain why this is an issue. google.com.au/amp/s/amp.theg… #boycottsydfest
2/ These are the names of the other Directors.

You should also contact them with your concerns.

sydneyfestival.org.au/board-of-direc…

I would also say this.

Often, Boards aren’t involved in making decisions about sponsorship.

It’s often operational.
I don’t know if that’s the case here.
3/ Do not get me wrong. I’m with Helen. I’m the kid that carries those fine Ashkenazi Jew genes my BRCA2 family dies from.

But I’m also aware how Boards work.

Also, this.

We Australians are also colonialists and abusers. I can see one prominent philanthropist from our sector.

BREAKING: Israeli forces demolished a two-story home on Tuesday in the Palestinian village of Nahhalin near Bethlehem.
The home belonged to a family of 8, including 3 children.

As Israeli forces destroyed the home, soldiers tear-gassed village residents who protested.
The home is one of at least 834 Palestinian structures demolished by Israeli forces in 2021 alone.

Amazing.

Israeli ambassador Tzipi Hotovely was forced to flee London’s LSE university after students protested her presence and refused to give her a platform. This is how colonial war criminals must be treated everywhere. #FreePalestine
Even British Jews oppose giving a platform to the fascist Hotovely who denies the 1948 Zionist Genocide against Palestinians, also known as the Nakba. #HotovelyOut
Funny how Israelis and Zionists are calling us Nazis, Terrorists and Anti-Semites when the Israeli regime:

-Armed Neo-Nazis in Ukraine (source: Haaretz)

- Backed Al Qaeda in Syria (source: Ex-Mossad head Efraim Halevy)

- Bombed the last Jewish synagogue in Beirut in 1982

Nè i palestinesi né gli ebrei saranno in salvo gli uni dagli altri o da se stessi, se non sarà correttamente identificata l'ideologia che tuttora guida la politica israeliana nei confronti dei palestinesi.
Il problema di Israele non è mai stato il giudaismo: quest'ultimo presentava svariate facce e molte di queste forniscono una solida base per la pace e la coabitazione; il problema è la natura etnica del sionismo.
Il sionismo non ha gli stessi margini di pluralismo che offre il giudaismo, meno che mai per i palestinesi.

Gli attacchi di Israele contro Gaza e il Libano nell'estate del 2006 stanno a indicare che la tempesta sta già infuriando.

Estremisti nazionalisti stanno anche cercando di eliminare ogni traccia fisica che possa ricordare alle generazioni future che una popolazione diversa dai serbi sia mai vissuta insieme in Bosnia.
Moschee storiche, chiese e sinagoghe come pure librerie nazionali e ponti storici, archivi e musei sono stati incendiati, fatti saltare con la dinamite, rasi al suolo dai bulldozer… Vogliono eliminare anche la memoria del passato.
(Sevdalinka.net)
Circa 700.000 ulivi e aranci sono stati distrutti dagli israeliani. Questo è un atto di vero e proprio vandalismo da parte di uno Stato che rivendica la conservazione dell'ambiente. Che sgomento e che vergogna.

I profughi dicono che le forze serbe, quando espellevano gli albanesi kossovari dalle loro case, separavano sistematicamente gli uomini di etnia albanese “in età militare” – tra i 14 e i 59 anni – dal resto della popolazione.
Come centro di detenzione per una grande quantità di albanesi kossovari veniva usata la fabbrica di Ferro-Nickel di Glocovac.
´Relazione del Dipartimento di Stato sul Kossovo 1999`
L'ordine è di fare prigioniero qualsiasi arabo sospetto in età militare, tra i 10 e i 50 anni.
´Archivi dell'IDF, 5943/49/114, 13 aprile 1948.

All'inizio dell'Intifada, settembre 2000, sono stati arrestati più di 2500 ragazzini. Al momento ci sono almeno 340 minori nelle prigioni israeliane. («The People's Voice», 25 dicembre 2005)

THREAD: Yesterday, Zionist “defense” minister Benny Gantz announced the designation of six Palestinian civil society groups as “terrorist organizations.” #ResistanceIsNotACrime #FreePalestine Image
Forcing civil society orgs to carry on their work underground is a tactic used not only by Israel but historically by the US to quash the Black liberation movement through COINTELPRO and similar surveillance programs aimed at destroying the Black Panthers, MOVE, etc.
The targeting of these orgs as “terrorist” operations is an attempt to punish & silence organizers who do the work of documenting the occupation’s violence & brutality, & for exposing the true motives of Zionist project that has caused a global shift in Palestinian support.

Orang yang dah mati pun tidak selamat dari kejahatan Zionis.

Semalam dengan menggunakan jentolak, Zionis mengorek dan meratakan Perkuburan Yusufiyyah milik orang Islam di Al-Aqsa Dengan tujuan untuk membina taman!

Gambar menunjukkan tulang² dari sebuah kubur yang telah digali.
Tulang tulang milik orang Islam yang bertaburan dari kubur mereka setelah Zionis menggali dan meratakannya dengan jentolak. Jahatnya mereka! #IsraeliCrimes

As a .@TDSB Afro-Indigenous parent, it is disturbing to me that people in this board continually recoil in horror the minute someone suggests that Palestinians deserve to not be oppressed, displaced, harmed, murdered or otherwise robbed of human rights. #onted
As an Indigenous person, the parallels between Palestinian and Indigenous oppression is pretty obvious and I'm disturbed that anyone within an arm's reach of Indigenous education at the .@TDSB would try to censor Desmond Cole who has been a solid co-conspirator.
As a Black person, the anti-Black attacks he has received from various communities for his activism in this conference goes hand in hand with the oppression of Black Jews and Afro-Palestinians. Reading "double-racism" struck every one of my Afro-Indigenous nerves.

International outrage can stop the demolition of the homes of 500 Palestinians in Al-Walaja.

Make noise for Palestinian freedom by:

1️⃣ Sharing these graphics
2️⃣ Taking action on Twitter: bit.ly/NoFundsForEthn…
3️⃣ Calling your rep: bit.ly/HR2590Call

#SaveAlWalaja
Already, Israel delayed a scheduled Oct. 6 hearing on the fate of 38 homes belonging to 220 Palestinians, a sign that public outrage is working to defend Palestinian homes.

This is a sign that our collective voices for Palestinian freedom have an impact.

#SaveAlWalaja
Palestinians of Al-Walaja are under threat from Israel to make way for construction of a segregated highway for Jewish Israelis.

The Israeli nature agency has also taken control of Ein Hanya spring, a natural spring that Palestinians no longer have access to.

I'm hyping my auntie Samira up for #WorldTeachersDay. An amazing woman who doesn't get enough praise for her work in Gaza Palestine. Born in Yafa in 1951, she founded the Abraham Center for Languages after presenting a project proposal to Mr. Bjarne Schirmer from Norway in '91 /1
The concept for the center came from her two decades of experience as a language teacher in Occupied Palestine and Gaza, and was inspired by the Folk High School movement in Norway, in which language learning is viewed as a way to open dialogue & build awareness. #TeachersDay /2
In 1992 Samira was invited by
the American ambassador to participate in the International Visitor Program of the U.S Information Agency. There, my auntie took the opportunity to connect with other women and call for solidarity for peace 🇵🇸 #WorldTeachersDay #BlackHistoryMonth /3

Palestinian resistance & resilience endure in the face of collective punishment.

Our solidarity work does not stop until every Palestinian is free & until Apartheid Israel is held accountable for its ongoing, systematic attacks against Palestinian life.

#ExposeApartheidIsrael
This is the violence that the U.S. funds into existence.

Countering Israel's collective punishment against Palestinians necessitates raising awareness in media while holding gov'ts & international bodies (@ICC & @UN) accountable for complicity & inaction.
@Addameer's call on the @ICRC "to safeguard the rights of all Palestinian prisoners held inside Israeli prisons from arbitrary, retaliatory, & collective punishment imposed by the Israeli Prison Services" cannot go unanswered.

1/6 so......after @YoungLabourUK being told they couldn't have a @PSCupdates speaker at their meeting, after @YoungLabourUK stood resolute, principled and strong, after @PSCupdates intervention,Labour back down and apologise. We will be glad to be at the @YoungLabourUK event....
2/6 The situation was absurd but tied up hours of my time. All because a senior Labour official believed advocating for BDS might contravene IHRA definition.This is how the delegitimisation campaign works. Pressure bodies to adopt a definition of antisemitism that conflates it...
3/6.. with legitimate advocacy for Palestinian rights- once adopted press for it to be interpreted as proscribing critique of racist laws and policies and advocacy for BDS.. even tho definition does not say this...even if you don't succeed in getting an event or person cancelled

Just to confirm, PSC will have its usual stall at the Labour Party conference and a meeting at the Fringe. We will also be taking part in the Youth Rising for Palestine @TWT_NOW event on September 28th with @YoungLabourUK.
PSC speakers will also be speaking at other events on Palestine at the conference.

However, it is also correct that an official within the Party has told Young Labour not to have a PSC speaker at a proposed event.
Meetings are taking place today to address this and we will make a fuller statement once the issue is resolved.

In the meantime, if you are attending the conference make sure to attend our fringe event “Justice for Palestine”➡️bit.ly/PSCLabourFringe

Il portavoce della NATO Jamie Shea ha detto che tutti i rapporti ricevuto dalla NATO indicavano che quanto stava accadendo in Kosovo era un master plan organizzato da Belgrado.
Ha asserito che si trattava di un modello di violenza secondo il quale i carri armati serbi circondano i villaggi, poi intervengono i paramilitari che radunano i civili sotto la minaccia del fucile, si separano gli uomini giovani dalle donne e dai bambini.
Le donne e i bambini sono poi cacciati dalle loro case e spinti verso il confine. Dopo che hanno lasciato il villaggio le case vengono saccheggiate e poi sistematicamente date alle fiamme.
