#Palestinians are standing together: #Hamas and #PLO. Listen to the PLO Ambassador @hzomlot. All united against #Israel aggression, continuous murder of the Palestinian people and ejecting civilians from their homes.

The days when #Israel can isolate and mistreat Palestinians anywhere in #Palestine are gone. #Gaza imposed a new Rule of Engagement and new solidarity of the #palestinian population behind the resistance.

#AlAqsaUnderAttack

1/. MAITLS: Surely you should step up & recognise that when you’re firing, children get killed

HOTOVELY: We were not firing [at] children we were firing at targets of a cruel terrorist organisation, radical Islamics who are trying to kill our children.
@maitlus & @TzipiHotovely
2/. #TzipiHotovely: You can see those youngsters piling those rocks & throwing them at the people praying at the Western Wall”

@maitlis: You really think the #AlAqsaMosque is a terrorist stronghold?

#Isreal’s hardline ambassador to the UK, on #Newsnight.

3/. “The EU has said the potential evictions are illegal under international humanitarian law. The UN had said they could constitute a war crime under the Geneva Convention” @maitlis

THREAD: 6 Things to Know about Jerusalem violence

Amidst all the headlines and breaking news, it can be confusing to make sense of what’s happening in #Palestine/#Israel right now. Here are 6 things you need to know to understand what’s going on:
1) Israel has been escalating tensions in #Jerusalem for weeks, including placing new restrictions on Palestinians marking Ramadan, the violent suppression of Palestinians protesting evictions of families in #SheikhJarrah by settlers,
and soldiers assaulting worshippers in Al Aqsa Mosque.

You are not unique in framing this ethnic cleansing as an issue of poorly behaved #Palestinian youth,
@ReutersUK @ReutersCommods have the same approach with their embedded CIA operative calling the shots.

@Rueters
And to crown off the last 3 days, the Zionists will March through #Palestinian areas shouting abuse and death threats. What a shambles our corporate media and most political representatives are in the U.K. and USA

In 1920, the "Nabi Musa" celebrations took place on April 4, coinciding with #Passover and the Greek Orthodox #Easter.
Amin al-Husseini, who was then at the beginning of his career, and Araf al-Araf stirred up the celebrating crowd with enthusiastic hate speech that day.

As a result, after the traditional prayer at the end of the holiday, the incited #Arab crowd marched from the mosque in the Judean Desert, 20 kilometers from #Jerusalem, to the homes of the #Jews in Old Jerusalem, shouting "Adbah al-Yehud" (Slaughter the Jews).

And a call that later turned out to be correct - "a-Daula Mana" ("The (British) government is with us").
The #Arab crowd shouted "Independence Independence" & sang: "#Palestine is our land - the #Jews are our dogs." During all this time, #Arab

Israeli TV news channel 21 live broadcast from #KhanAlAhmar, where Israeli electoral candidates @naftalibennett, @gidonsaar, @bezalelsm, among others, line up to pledge the forcible transfer of #Palestinians and their supplanting with settlers - following tomorrow's elections.
If pledging to commit multiple grave breachs of international law in front of a camera, and against the backdrop of the community who will be victimized by these actions, is not sufficient for the international community to infer bad faith on the part of Israeli politicians (...)
and do away with calling on Palestinians to enter intro negotiations with these would-be criminals, I'm not sure what will.

Unchecked financial support to Palestinian leadership is tantamount to betraying the dreams of talented young #Palestinians held hostage to the corruption/ineptitude of #Ramallah+#Gaza. The best way to prolong #Palestine-#Israel conflict.
A better way would be for the #Biden WH to apply checks on aid, ensure it gets to the right people, and mark progress in services and institutions that serve #Palestinian people, not corrupt Palestinian leaders and militant groups.

Best part: States that helped #Palestine the most are the one's most vilified by #Palestinian leaders+militant groups. #America is the largest aid giver to Palestine in history. #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait top Arab/Muslim list. #Egypt/#Jordan/#GCC hosted refugees.

**ACTION ITEM BELOW**
On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

So there's been some talk lately of #Antisemitism, so let's talk about it. #Israel and #Palestine are still fighting over #Jerusalem #WestBank #Gaza. #Zionist propaganda says that #antizionism = #Antisemitism. Not true. Look at #History and the agreements that were signed.
history.com/topics/middle-… - if you look at the massive influence Jews established during WW1 with the elites, they nearly screwed the Arab #Palestinians out of all their land - which they've been there since the #OttomanEmpire conquered Jerusalem.
thoughtco.com/1967-six-day-w… - the 1967 #SixDayWar agreement with the @UN cemented in writing today's borders. I get it #Israel - you want the land that was conquered. Well, too bad. YOU signed the treaty too, and many of us Gentiles just want the wars in the Middle East to end.

This #Palestinian woman explains that Big Ben in London is actually Palestinian. It used to be in Jerusalem at Jaffa Gate and everyone would hear it chiming, but the British took it to Britain in 1922 during the Mandate. Inshallah one day it will be returned to the #Palestinians.
Here you go. I don't know how I didn't realize this myself years ago.
(You can see why the British carted it off. It's bloody awful)

Late last night, approximately 150 #Israeli #settlers gathered in the small #Palestinian hamlet of Tawamin, located near to the Israeli #settlement of Susiah. They came to assault and force the Mur family out of the cave they live on in their lands in Tawamin.
The Mur family that lives on their #land in order to protect it constantly from local settlers. For many years, the family has faced #settler #violence in the form of tree uprootings and physical threats and assaults, all in attempt to remove this family from their lands.
The family was forced out of their home late night by a huge crowd of settlers and left out in the cold for several hours before they were finally able to take back their home.

@AndrewYang is just another example of a politician who doesn’t get it. Why should New Yorkers elect someone who sees one of the strongest tactics of #economic #resistance as similar to anti-Semitic violence?
Why would you trust someone who would suggest that the use of a #boycott (prominently featured in American & global #history to topple #racist regimes) is a racist & fascist tactic?

That is someone who wants to take your power away.
#Palestinians are first, because we’re an easy target. But if you think it stops there, you need to learn from #history. The #US has tried to target & outlaw #boycotts for a long, long time.

Today is the #InternationalDayofSolidaritywiththePalestinianPeople. The UN established it in 1977 in the context of anti-imperial resistance, particularly to the United States, which has been blocking pathways to freedom for Palestinians. #Palestinians #Solidarity #Thread
The #Palestinian #Liberation Organization entered the #UN foray in 1974 & immediately helped pass UNGA Res 3236 - a corrective to UNSC Res 242, which normalized Israel's status pre 1967 & reified the juridical erasure of Palestinians as a people w the right to self-determination.
In 1975, the UNGA passed Res 3375 insisting that the PLO be included in the Middle East Peace Process - which the US and Israel excluded vehemently and instead discussed their interests through proxy of other Arab States thus insisting that #Palestinians "do not exist." #Freedom

1| Americans should contemplate long and hard why one of Trump's most burning tasks, right before he leaves office, is the targeting of a #HumanRights movement lead by an #indigenous people on the other side of the globe 👇
amnesty.org/en/latest/news… #USA #Israel #Palestinians #BDS
2| Let's first recall that the Palestinian-lead global BDS movement has already been designated by the @UN as a #HumanRightsDefenders movement, whose speech is protected.
#hrd
3| @amnesty chimes in with a bit of uncharacteristic & very welcome political analysis:
"This is simply the latest attack from a US government determined to undermine the universality of human rights and the global fight against racism and discrimination, including antisemitism."

I just finished a call with a journo wanting to ask about #Pompeo's moves to recognize colonial settlements as part of Israel, to decry #BDS, and to collapse anti #Zionism and anti Semitism. A few thoughts. #THREAD
Re #BDS: It is not the core of progressive organizing or the heart of a movement, it is one of the few tactics left available to Palestinians and their allies as other tactics have been steadily and systematically maligned.
The US and Israel have always rejected #ArmedResistance, enshrined in Additional Protocol I (1977), as terroristic regardless of actual targets, namely military, and the PLO surrendered that right in 1993 in exchange for entering into the trap of the #PeaceProcess.

7 reasons that make #Trump good for the Middle East

#America will choose its president. But from a strictly objective look at the Middle East, @realDonaldTrump emerges as someone who has done the unthinkable in the region, ideally making him the choice for #Muslim-Americans. Image
#Trump did not launch new wars in the Middle East. A sign of deft diplomacy, from avoiding new conflicts in #Syria while holding #Assad accountable for possible war crimes, to avoiding a war with #Iran.

#Trump ended regime change wars induced through Islamist proxies. This allowed important players like #Egypt & the #Gulf to avoid collapse & chaos. Even #Iran received a signal from Trump that it is about behavior change, not regime change.

1️⃣ #Erdogan implied that #Jerusalem belongs to #Turkey, referring to the #OttomanEmpire’s control over the city for much of the modern era. “In this city, we had to leave in tears during the #FirstWorldWar, it is still possible to come across traces of the #Ottoman resistance.
2️⃣ So #Jerusalem is our city, a city from us,”. “Our first #qibla [direction of prayer in #Islam] #alAqsa and the #Dome of the #Rock in Jerusalem are the symbolic #mosques of our faith. In addition, this city is home to the holy places of #Christianity and #Judaism.”
3️⃣ #Jerusalem has been the capital of #Israel since the country’s founding, and the #Jewish people have thousands of years of history in the city, backed up by extensive archaeological finds.
