Shabbat Shalom. Moral leadership today means eradicating the plague of child sex trafficking. Speaking out against it, passing laws against it, and helping victims to recover. Have a good Shabbat. #ShabbatShalom from the #HolyLand of #Israel.
*and punishing the traffickers.

Relative deprivation and the notion of Middle East coexistence.

A #travel dispatch from #Israel, with #sociological observations on a tour of the Knesset.

Thursday 2/13/2020.
This is my Periscope of the first part of the Knesset tour (photo and video taken with permission). I watched this man talk and wondered...

How is this young Arab woman, who was with a student group that went in after us, supposed to feel included in the Jewish Declaration of Independence?

#Israel Diary for Wednesday, 2/12/2020. A visit to the holy city of Zefat (Safed or Tzfat).
The pilgrimage to the graves of the holy rabbis and mystics was really important to me. I prayed for our country there, for the victims, for @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and his family. For me and my loved ones. For my Twitter family. For those who asked here.

This is the structure where you stand. Men and women separate as Orthodox people practice. It is very solemn. Last time I was here was 30 years ago.

Exclusive: "Serious structural problems" in #Israel's military mean "masses of targets" in #Gaza are bombed without proper intelligence evaluations killing&maiming civilians, personnel told me. They said intel is often old,there's no visual check before (1)independent.co.uk/news/world/mid…
2. The #Israel airmen told me a culture of “destroy, destroy, destroy” rewards personnel for identifying fresh targets in #Gaza rather than checking the validity of 1000s already in the database, known as the “bank”. Sometimes the intelligence is over a year old. #Gaza
3. #Israeli airmen said if the targets in #Gaza run out, as happened during the 2014 war, the air force is told to “simply keep dropping bombs”. It got to the point in 2014 where personnel were questioning why the operation was continuing "because the target bank was finished"

#TelAviv #Israel nightlife. This is a very chill, laid-back, diverse city where it seems like everyone is a model. Tonight is “Monday have fun night.”
These trees are gnarled and unusual. They seem to have some sort of story.
The buses, road signs, and pretty much all public communications are in Hebrew, Arabic and English. There are no soldiers beating anyone up. This is a fantasy projected by people who want to kill Jews.

Only a callous, insensate, person would tell a victim of carnage, pogrom, genocide, ethnic cleansing that there are "two sides to truth". Hopefully Vidhu Vinod Chopra will not make a film on Bengal Famine, 1971 genocide by #Pakistan, Marichjhapi, 1984 massacre of Sikh, 26/11. n1
Sordid #denialism is worse than the crime against humanity being denied. It is morally abhorrent, ethically repugnant. Denialism is the tombstone that marks the grave where conscience has been buried. Denialism is by design, not by accident. n2
A velvet tongue does not impart legitimacy to #denialism nor do treacly words make it tolerable. Every crime against humanity has collaborators. Every denialist has supporters. Think Vichy and you will get it. That is why the needle of the moral compass must never waver. n3

The House can pass S1 like McConnell suggests
S1:
This bill authorizes assistance & weapons transfers to Israel, extends defense cooperation with Jordan, establishes additional sanctions related to the conflict in Syria, & allows states to divest from entities boycotting Israel

Statement by Arab League foreign ministers following emergency session totally rejects Trump's peace plan and calls on US administration to abide by internationally-acknowledged terms of reference for peace negotiations. Thread:
The statement affirmed East #Jerusalem as a capital of the State of #Palestine, the right of the State of Palestine to exercise sovereignty on all its territories occupied in 1967, and on its air space, territorial waters, natural resources and borders
The Arab FMs rejected the "Deal of the Century". It doesn't meet the minimum requirements of the Palestinians and violates all previous agreed terms of reference upon which negotiations were held as well as int'l law. They called on Trump's administration to abide by these terms.

Dua hari yang lalu, Presiden AS Donald Trump mengumumkan rencana perdamaian Timur Tengah yang ia prakarsai. Para analis menilai rencana ini masih sangat menguntungkan Israel
bbc.in/37Fx4F5

[#BBCIndonesiamenjelaskan dalam sebuah utas)
Ada beberapa poin dalam usulan Trump. Salah satu yang paling kontroversial adalah perubahan perbatasan Israel dan Tepi Barat. Trump menyertakan sebuah peta konsep luasan teritori #israel dan #palestina. Di peta ini, mayoritas wilayah untuk Israel

Ketuk untuk memperbesar gambar
Poin lain dalam rencana Trump, #Yerusalem akan menjadi ibu kota Israel “yang tidak terbagi”. Sementara Palestina boleh mendirikan ibu kota di “daerah pinggiran” Yerusalem Timur.

Kemudian, para pengungsi Palestina dicabut “hak untuk kembali”

Five nuggets mined from @POTUS #Israel-#Palestine peace plan that commentators may have missed on a quick reading: 1/6
1) Plan cites 1949 Armistice negotiations as a rationale for Triangle proposal, an #AvigdorLieberman favorite, to transfer 10 #Arab towns/villages from #Israel to #Palestine. Imagine if Palestinian negotiators cited '49 precedent to claim land currently inside #Israel? p. 13 2/6
2) Despite affirmation of the "same governance regime that exists today" for #Jerusalem holy sites -- and despite #Trump's appeal to #Jordan's king yesterday -- plan does not specifically endorse special #Hashemite role in preserving holy sites. p. 16 3/6

#Bahrain, #Oman, and #UAE attended #TheDealOfTheCentury today amongst Americans and Israelis as a representation of the Arabs as Trump unrevealed the new #Israel & #Palestine maps, however there was no Palestinians. These 3 nations represent less than 1% of the Arab pop. (1)
Historically speaking, the Arab world was led by three civilizations - Egypt, the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine), and Iraq. These three nations make up most of the Arab population in the Middle East. (2)
An old Arabic expression says Egypt writes, Lebanon prints, and the Iraqis read. When these three nations led the region everyone lived in peace, including all minorities. (3)

The spectacle at the White House today hearkens back to the colonial era when European powers would arbitrarily set up borders & divide lands in their overseas domains without consulting the “natives", and call their schemes "peace" & prosperity. nyti.ms/2tPxNVM
There were no #Palestinians at #Trump & #Netanyahu’s table, but Palestinian rights were the main course of the banquet, to be dissected, chopped up & served by two rogue & shameless men with notorious relations with truth, justice, integrity and human decency. #rightsmatter
#Trump’s warped“vision”is a bilateral agreement between the U.S. & #Israel presented to the much weaker #Palestinians & containing impossible conditions & the promise of creating a Bantustan-like emasculated entity surrounded by Israel so that the Palestinians would call it home.

I have read the entire #Israel-#Palestinian peace plan and my advice to revelers is not to pop the champagne anytime soon -- "peace" is not around the corner. Here's a quick assessment. 1/11
I congratulate the plan's authors for injecting some realism into conventional views of this conflict. It is realistic for the Jordan River to be Israel's security barrier. It is realistic for hundreds of thousands of Israelis in West Bank not to be forced to relocate. 2/11
But they took those & other principles and stretched them beyond all recognition. #Israeli security control of #JordanValley became full sovereignty; not uprooting hundreds of thousands of settlers became not uprooting even 1 settler. There are no Solomonic judgments here. 3/11

Trump's "Peace Plan" in a nutshell: Israel gets to steal a massive amount of additional land, Palestinians get to pretend they have their own country - but they can't have their own military and #Israel will continue to control its brutal security / occupation over #Palestine. 🤣
Trump's "peace" plan is dead on arrival. It's a blank check written out to his Zionist puppet masters to pillage #Palestine as they please. Why even unveil this absurd trash? Doing so demonstrates not only that he's a Zionist tool, but that he has ZERO skill at real deal-making.
Trump's proposal says #Palestine can be it's own state, but #Israel will control all security over the territory WEST of the Jordan River. Of course, ALL of the proposed Palestinian state is west of the river - meaning Palestine would still not be free. #PalestineWILLBeFree

#Netanyahu has been formally indicted on corruption charges, just hours before he is expected to join #Trump for the launch of the US Middle East "peace plan". Bibi dropped his bid for immunity after became clear the Israeli parliament would vote against it. What a day.
Here we go, it begins whitehouse.gov/live/
Trump starts by teasing Netanyahu for not being able to form a government after "The longest-running election of all time". "Israel is a light unto the world, the arts and history of our people are woven together" he adds .
