Naji Al-Ali is a great #Palestinian artist and figure that has always fought strongly for the Palestinian cause by his paintings and powerful words. He drew Handala, a famous caricature that symbolizes Palestinian defiance.
"He was the arrow of the compass, pointing steadily towards Palestine. Not just #Palestine in geographical terms, but Palestine in its humanitarian sense—the symbol of a just cause," Al-Ali said.
Al-Ali was assassinated in London, and on August 29, he died of his wounds. Whatever they did, we, Palestinians, a generation after a generation will hold the Palestinian message till we gain our freedom.

Difficult to comprehend that today 7 yrs ago, a cop shot to kill #MichaelBrown & left him laid out in grueling #Ferguson heat for 4 hours. It happened in the midst of Israel's aerial onslaught of Gaza & catalyzed renewals of #BlackPalestinianSolidarity. Since then...
more cops & vigilantes have shot to kill unarmed Black folks catalyzing the most significant Black uprisings of our time in the summer 2020. Israeli officers have shot to kill too many Palestinians, including my cousin, #AhmadErekat 6 times above the waist in 2 seconds, &....
launched an even more devastating onslaught of besieged Palestinians in #Gaza then we've seen in the past 2 decades of systemic warfare catalyzing the most significant #Palestinian uprising in recent history.

.Fog of #Palestinian War

@RepRashida ‘s 7/22/21 letter to @SecYellen has a tone, an approach, & a number of claims worth considering bc they reflect weaknesses in the #Islamist interests it represents. This affects US foreign policy; the upcoming ‘22 election; & the politics
of the UN.

The tone is one of desperation; the approach is to use a US #Palestinian-American Congresswoman to front #Islamist assertions about US DOMESTIC & International Law in order to illegally derail the Executive Branch’s Middle East policy. This affects the ‘22 elections
bc, in combination w/Biden Administration withdrawal from Afghanistan, re-habilitation of the flawed #UNRWA, re-funding the PA despite the PA’s publicly declared continuation of #PayforSlay , re-habilitating Gaza w/0 penalty for Hamas, whom the US designated as a terrorist org

1| I try to focus on a single story in every post, but I want us to have proportions. So let's compare and contrast #Israel's response to @benandjerrys's not wanting to be complicit in its #WarCrimes, to Israel's actual war crimes.

Thread: What’s happening in #Israel as the Delta variant surges in one of the world’s most vaccinated countries? More below- as the lead scientist advising Israel’s government tells me “#vaccines work” but must not be treated as “bullet proof vests”...
New daily #COVID19 cases hit more than 1,000 on Friday, from nearly none in early June. Severe illness remains relatively low but is rising - now 63 patients. Death rates are still very low, averaging 1 per day. Israel has a highly vaccinated population - 56% with 2 doses
But there’s a youth population boom. A third of Israelis are 16 or under. Under 20s account for around 45% of new #Covid19 cases. So Israel is now immunising 12-15 year-olds. 40% of the the 12-19 age group have had at least one dose.

Since the Nakba, #Israel has been waging an #Economic war on the Palestinian people; It robs us of our rich natural resources , drowns us in poverty & unemployment, steals our taxes, exploits us as cheap labor & destroys the infrastructures of our local means of production

In response to the #Israeli state violence practiced against the #Palestinian economy, we launched the #PalestineEconomicWeek . The "developed" Israeli economy was built on de-developing our #Economic infrastructure.
In addition to the expulsion of 85% of our Palestinian population, The significance of #Nakba is also represented in the institutionalized confiscation and looting of the vast majority of #Palestinian property.

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

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.

"What the fuck does Maysoon know about #Palestine? Who is she who dares to speak?" I grew up spending every summer of my life in Deir Debwan, a Palestinian village on the outskirts of Ramallah. In non pandemic years, I live part time in Palestine. I own a home and land.
My land is currently being threatened by the settlers who have outgrown Beit El. I married and later divorced a man who was born and raised in a refugee camp. He has 5 brothers. All 5 have been shot by the Israeli army. All 5 survived. One of them is #autistic. #IsraelApartheid
I spent a decade working on the ground in Palestine. The focus of my work was the mainstreaming of the disabled and wounded children into the #Palestinian school system. I also pioneered stand up comedy in Palestine. These are my people. My actual family lives under seige.

So since the dude that got popped embezzling and has been accused by multiple comedians of sexual harassment and sexual assault wants to know why I am considered a leader let’s fucking do this. #thread #palestine #NJ #DisCo
When I was 16 I became student council president that’s when my interest in leadership and government began as a result I went to leader ship training camp as a teen. I became a counselor at that camp for 13 years so I literally train future #NewJersey leaders.
At 18 I volunteered on my first campaign. It was for Bob Torricelli. Yes I know how his career ended and a lot of New Jersey politicians that I volunteered for ended up resigning in disgrace or going to jail but this is #Jersey #CripTheVote

Plan Dalet: Blueprint for Ethenic Cleansing of Palestine

Thread :

From d earliest days of modern political Zionism,its advocates grappled w/the problem of creating a Jewish majority state in a part of d world where #Palestinian Arabs were d overwhelming majority of d population
For many, the solution became known as "transfer," a euphemism for ethnic cleansing.

The father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl, wrote in 1895:
"We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries,
while denying it any employment in our own country... expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly."

By August 1937, "transfer" was a major subject of discussion at the Twentieth Zionist Congress in Zurich, Switzerland. The 20th Zionists Congress in Zurich
