Shocked and helpless, the Palestinian Abdullah Khader watched his own home being demolished in Beit Hanina town, after the Israeli occupation municipality in #Jerusalem forced the Khader family to demolish their home or else they'd have to pay high punitive fines. (1/3)
'Israel' claims the land, where Abdullah has lived ever since he was a child, is owned by the Hadassah Zionist Organisation. (2/3)
Abdullah has lost his ability to move after the Israeli court decided that he didn't have any right in his house; he had a stroke as a result of the decision. (3/3)

Just before 14:00, exactly 20 years ago today, a suicide bomber stepped into a Pizza place in #Jerusalem.
He ordered pasta.
Then he detonated a bomb hidden inside a guitar case and all hell broke loose.

The results were catastrophic.
15 were killed, 7 of them children.
One family in particular, was destroyed in a split second.
43 year old Mordechai Schijveschuurder, his wife Tzira, 14 year old daughter Raya, 4 year old son Avraham and 2 year old daughter Hemda. Killed.
2 other children from the Schijveschuurder family were critically injured.
The Palestinian Authority refrained from arresting the ones responsible. Eventually, all behind the attack were arrested by Israel.

Day 2 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

On the road from Bursa to Çeşme

While on road lets talk😊

Did you know that #Turkey is an important source of #Kosher food? Hundreds of manufacturers all over the country produce anything from raw material to ready to eat products.
By the way: Kosher food does not mean food that is blessed by a rabbi!

Rather it is food that has been prepared according to Jewish law - there are no mixtures of meat/milk, it is insect free, meat or chicken have to be prepared properly according to Jewish law and more...
The Turkish Jewish community @tyahuditoplumu through @DenetGida which certifies hundreds of plants, as well as the @OrthodoxUnion and @OKKosher have their field representatives inspect plants to assure they are fit for the kosher consumer.

"Palestina" took its name from the coastal territory of the ancient Philistines, enemies of the Israelites (ancestors of the Jews). 2/n
Subsequent to the Islamic conquest of the Middle East in the seventh century, Arab people's began to settle in the former "Palestina". 3/n

PLEASE SHARE- MONDAY DAY OF ACTION: Palestinian people in Silwan, #Jerusalem are in danger of being forcibly expelled from their homes. The Israeli government is threatening to demolish the homes this Monday for Jewish Israeli settlers to take over the land. #WeWillRemain
The Israeli ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Silwan is part of Zionism’s long and violent history across all of Palestine, which the U.S. has funded for decades. #SaveSilwan #SaveSheikhJarrah #WeWillRemain

Graphic from @RabetbyPIPD
Stand on the right side of history and defend Silwan! Tell Democratic leadership to stop giving Israel the green light on ethnic cleansing:

Hamas affiliated groups in #Jerusalem had found another excuse to escalate the situation in the city , now they’re calling for a March from the Al Aqsa mosque to Damascus Gate after the Friday prayers because of an “insult to the Prophet Mohammed”
They claim that they heard this magical “insult” during the Flags March on Wednesday and since then it was dominating the discourse there.
If you’re wondering - they did not March anywhere after 10 synagogues were burned by Muslim extremists in Lod.
#Israel #Jerusalem
So it will be wise to monitor those areas for any possible provocations, especially considering the current re escalation on the #Gaza border

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.

I am a runner.
I run marathons around whole world. Never have I been attacked violently by police forces as I was today, during the Jerusalem run from #SaveSheikhJarrah to #SaveSilwan.
I was beaten six times, attacked by Israeli forces, for running in my ancestral town & city.
We ran 3.5 kilometres from Sheikh Jarrah to Silwan. I arrived at the finish line Batn Al-Hawa, Silwan neighbourhood under threat of ethnic cleansing by Israel.
All runners wore t-shirts that had # 7850 printed on back, the number of Palestinian Jerusalemites under threat.
Out of nowhere, Israeli forces raided the finish line, where we had gathered and been singing songs, drinking water, and resting our legs.
They were violent, attacked everyone indiscriminately, beating, throwing grenades, & firing rubber bullets at some.

1. On May 31st 1953, Palestinian terrorists that infiltrated from #Lebanon had opened fire on Israeli civilians near Safed, including on a minibus with Israeli schoolchildren that were on a school trip.
The incident occurred approximately at 20:30\8:30 PM , 2km from Mount Meron. An ambushed cell armed with a machine gun opened fire on cars passing in the area.
16 year old Isaiah Pickler was murdered and 3 other teens were wounded , including 1 critically.
Isaiah (Shaikeh), son of Leah and Chaim, was born in Focșani Romania in 1936. He grew up in Romania.
During the Holocaust, the father of the family perished.
A few years later, in 1950, Isaiah, his mother, his sister Giza and his brothers Moshe, Reuven and Herman made alliyah.

At this moment the Israeli police is conducting a mass detention campaign against Palestinian citizens of Israel. Our people are under attack and we demand international protection. Shamefully most of the world has ignored our situation. Here are some facts (Thread).
We are over 20% of Israel’s population, 1.8 million approximately, living under a system of institutional discrimination & persecution described by @hrw, @btselem & Palestinian human rights organizations as #Apartheid: Ignoring this means complicity with this reality.
We took over our streets to peacefully demonstrate for #Jerusalem and our people’s rights. We were met with police brutality & complicity with Zionist extremists that attacked us, including in our homes, the streets, universities, work places, etc.

“Saya mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Presiden Mesir dan diplomat Mesir. AS berjanji membantu membina semula Gaza namun kami akan bekerjasama dengan pihak berkuasa Palestin, bukan Hamas. Kami juga akan membantu Israel menguatkan Iron Dome (wtf).” Image

#Israel killed 231 people in #Gaza of which 64 children, 38 women and wounded 1630 in 10 days. Israel destroyed 1447 house and seriously damaged 13000 house in #Gaza in 10 days. This is proof that Israel was conducting serious war crime against humanity the world should condemn.
#Israel has exhausted its interception missiles in 10 days & asked to be provided with 907KG #US_Made GBU-31.

What would happen in case of war against #Hezbollah?

Israel is proved to be much weaker than anyone would imagine.All Arab countries who recently normalised r watching.
Only when US accept a ceasefire it means #Israel wants it, not the Palestinians. It will also mean that Israel has submitted to #Gaza's demand to protect #Jerusalem from ethnic cleansing. Nonetheless, it doesn't mean Israel will stop trying to expel the families of Sheikh Jarrah

Fake news: Two rockets in the sea, one intercepted & one fell close to the company that makes the interception missile systems to remind #Israel to stop its genocide in #Gaza. No war declaration here.

#Israel continues its indiscriminate bombing.

What #Israel has achieved for its security, apart from killing/wounding children, women & 1000s of civilians, destroying the infrastructure & homes, is NOTHING.

#Gaza defended #Jerusalem, brought back to light the Palestinian cause & #Israel genocide and ethnic cleansing.
It is not in the interest of the Palestinian leadership in #Gaza to accept the cease-fire proposed by #Egypt if it doesn't include the protection of the 38 families in Sheikh Jarrah #Jeruslam that #Israel has the intention to unlawfully expel and replace them with settlers.

Today #Israel coordinated a complex operation to transfer humanitarian aid to #Palestinians in #Gaza.The transfer was hindered by repeated #Hamas mortar fire launched at the crossing,in which civilians were killed and injured and an @IDF soldier was wounded. Timeline of events:
2/5 This morning, the Keren Shalom crossing was set to open to allow for the transfer of humanitarian aid, and the exit of foreign nationals.
3/5 There were 40 trucks loaded with food, medical equipment, and humanitarian aid on their way to the crossing from #Ramallah, #Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv, donated by OCHA, @UNICEF, the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders.
