“Due strade nel distretto di #Ramallah

Come #Israele ruba terra, spazio e tempo metodicamente e impunemente in #Palestina. ⬇1/20

"Mentre il governo crolla e i coloni aumentano i loro assalti organizzati ai palestinesi, con l'aiuto dei nostri amati soldati, scrivere di due strade nel distretto di #Ramallah sembra un lusso, persino un atto di suicidio giornalistico: ⬇2
chi se ne frega di queste sciocchezze?
Ma sono proprio le piccole cose e l'abitudine ad esse che mostrano il successo della società ebraico-israeliana nel violare metodicamente il diritto internazionale e impunemente. ⬇3

Motive behind #UDAIPUR incident:

Radicalised Jihadis r remote controlled by their masters to cause chaos.
~TIMING: PM is in UAE today to discuss #I2U2.
~Place: Udaipur, not a pro-govt state.

Chaos ws created to RE-IGNITE issue which had died few days ago.Far fetched❓❓
2/3 Ideally both the nations would not have discussed this issue but they r being FORCED to. More examples of “timing” INTERNATIONALLY: March 27: Negev Meeting in #Israel, representatives from UAE and other countries are in country when an attack takes place killing 2 policemen.
3/3 Ilhan Omar introduced res in US condemning India for human rights violations, US released a report condemning India on “religious freedom”, UN and others made statements. Still dont believe me? Why did they record VIDEO in Udaipur? To cause SENSATION! Do u get me now?

A short thread on key arguments in my new book Whatever Happened to Antisemitism? Redefinition and the Myth of the ‘Collective Jew’ which you can buy direct from Pluto Press here /1…
Discussion about #antisemitism is plagued by confusion and bitter argument. In his endorsement of my book @PeterBeinart calls contemporary debate on it ‘both incoherent and appalling . . . a hot mess.’/2
Yet we were told that the 2016 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (#IHRA) ‘working definition’ of #antisemitism had brought ‘international gold standard’ clarity to its contemporary meaning; that without IHRA it wasn’t possible to fight antisemitism./3

Well .@TrussLiz you talk about using "food as a weapon" but omit Global Britain's history of Operation Starvation:

Ireland - ‘famine’ of 1845-52 in Ireland engineered by British. Over 1 million Irish starved to death. 1.5 million ethnically cleansed, many left on 'coffin' ships
"During ‘Black 47’, the worst year of the so-called famine, almost 4000 vessels left Ireland carrying food to the ports of Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool and London, to feed English people. If we take butter alone, over 800,000 gallons was exported from Ireland at gunpoint"
"Mass starvation was a regular feature of life in India under British rule. The last ‘famine’ that was inflicted on India was in 1943 when over four million people died in Bengal."

On Monday, the @UN Security Council will address the implementation of #SCR2334, with @UNSCO_MEPP presenting the biannual implementation report. In the lead-up to the debate, @NRC_Norway briefed most Council Members; here is what I had stressed:
The resolution demanded that #Israel immediately and completely cease all
settlement activities in occupied #Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem,
and that it fully respects all of its legal obligations, including under the Fourth Geneva Convention #IHL.
In blatant disregard of the authoritative guidance of the #UNSC and peremptory norms of international law, consecutive #Israeli governments established 279 settlements, transferring 800K of its nationals to the territory of #Palestine; 1 out of 10 Israelis is now a settler.

Klare Haltung gegen #Israel, Relativierung von #Antisemitismus, kaum Distanz zum politischen Islam oder gar zur Muslimbruderschaft — dafür stehen die @NDMedienmacher von Ferda #Ataman, die aus dieser Agenda ein mittelständisches Unternehmen gebaut hat.
#AtamanArchiv Ein Thread
2) In einem langen Interview mit dem @DLF versuchte #Ataman immer wieder, die Definition von #Antisemitismus aufzuweichen und das Phänomen allgemeinem Mobbing oder Diskriminierung unterzuordnen.
Deswegen bräuchten wir auch kein Melderegister für #Antisemitismus #AtamanArchiv

Wenn bei einer Demo in Berlin israelische Fahnen verbrannt werden, dann seien das „deutsche Geschichten.“
Denn: „Das passiert ja in Deutschland - nicht von irgendwie einigewanderten Menschen.“

⬆️Big recent increases here in my country 🇮🇱 ; a fresh new wave.
1⃣new cases:… 2⃣hospitalizations:… #COVID19 #openscience #rstats #serverless #snrtg #Israel
I was not expecting a new COVID wave until at least Autumn. I was wrong.
🦠SarsCov2 is unpredictable. It does not abide by seasons.
The figure of new cases could be a vast underestimation:
"Israel's Covid czar: Likely up to 20,000 cases
every day in current outbreak"… #scicomm #COVID19 #Israel #openscience

Yadot Ahranot reveals #Israel's direct responsibility for Sabra and Shatila massacre, I personally have witnessed the consequences, that remain unaccountable. It took place 40 years ago, by Lebanese Israel's proxies: the Phalange militia & Saad Haddad's South Lebanon Army.
The massacre of thousands of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians living in the Sabra and Shatila neighbourhoods of southern #Beirut took place after a meeting in which Ariel Sharon gave the orders to his proxies to commit the massacre and come up with a domesticated version.
The killings were perpetrated while #Israel, which had occupied #Lebanon from the southern border through West Beirut, surrounded the unprotected Palestinian camps, protected the killers and invented a story to hide its direct responsibility for the massacre.

Not surprising.

Thread: 16 June 2022: Day 113 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Every bloody time. This one with the Harpoons is among the worst since the breaking of #Russia's naval blockade is an immediate problem for us all, not just #Ukraine. Really not sure we have the time for this roundabout method.
Let's hope this is right with the HIMARS. Should have been done a while ago, but ...

[THREAD] 🧵#Lebanon's maritime border negotiations and it's implications :

The Mediterranean is filled with giant untapped gas fields which many countries can benefit from to boost their economies (#Egypt, #Palestine("#Israel"), #Greece, #Turkey, #Lebanon).

#Lebanon's maritime borders with Palestine are not drawn yet. There's the Karish gas field that is on the border on disputed territories, which contains hundreds of billions worth of gas.

[#Lebanon and undeclared sanctions] In 2020, Total suddenly stopped it's exploration activities in Lebanon and declared that "there's no commercial quantities available in blocks 4 and 9", and refused to give it's reports to Lebanon.

#Israel cerca di liberarsi da sempre della parola “occupazione”.

"Il ministro della Giustizia #GideonSaAr era molto appassionato nel suo discorso. “Questa è una legge fondamentale!” gridava dal profondo della sua anima, e naturalmente intendeva la “Legge di Giudea e Samaria” che la Knesset, in un raro momento di illuminazione, ha bocciato. ⬇2
Una “legge fondamentale” diceva, e solo Dio sa cosa intendesse. Esistono leggi fondamentali e leggi non fondamentali? Non è chiaro. Forse Sa'ar sperava che dicendo "fondamentale" e non solo "di base", l'assemblea si sarebbe immediatamente convinta. ⬇3
