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

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.

⭕ Professor of Political Science at Al-Quds University, Dr. Ahmed Rafiq Awad in an interview with Sawt Al-Aqsa Radio:

The occupation views #Jenin camp in full danger because it is the result of its
policy and violations.

The occupation’s use of force in #Jenin pushes the youth to use more force, as #Jenin is a legacy of patience and steadfastness.

The occupation believes that it can solve
issues by force, but it has failed.

The occupation sought to separate the fronts, but they united in #Gaza, the West Bank, #Jerusalem, and 48 to defend the national constants.

"Soon.. Guard of the Fences 2" - Internal Security Minister Bar-Lev decided last week that the flag march on Sunday would pass through Bab al-Amud and the Muslim Quarter, and not only that,

These days, fake funded accounts that impersonate the names of #Palestinian ministries are spreading, asking #Palestinians to register and fill in data to obtain grants and sums
of money provided to #Palestinian families.

We warn against communicating with these accounts and note that dealing with them puts your data and accounts at risk, and we note that the #Palestinian
ministries announce any grant or financial aid through their official websites and not through fake funded pages, so we note the need to ensure the reliability and credibility of any party claiming

#Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz says no approach for a joint investigation was made to #Palestinian authorities till after it was already announced to journalists as part of PR scramble around the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh. Click image to see whole text. Image
Israel has claimed that it is 'probable' or 'likely' or 'possible' that the bullet that killed Abu Akleh was fired by a Palestinian. Everything is 'possible' until we know more, but these claims are to stall in the hope that attention dies down before evidence can be produced.
Deliberate killing or not, Israel hates @AJEnglish as the only mainstream global channel that reports regularly and truthfully about the abuses Palestinians suffer. Remember how Israel destroyed Al-Jazeera's Gaza offices.…

#Chinese Foreign Ministry gives very interesting details from #China FM Wang call with #Israel FM @yairlapid. Thread: As far as I remember, this is 1st time China praises the #AbrahamAccords, if without naming them. Wang Yi says "China is pleased to see Israel establishing 1/9
and developing normal ties with countries in the region, which is part of the reconciliation in the broader #MiddleEast 中方乐见以方同地区国家建立并发展正常友好关系,这应是中东整体和解的组成部分." So far, China has been was quiet re Israel's closer ties with #UAE, #Bahrain 2/9

THREAD: This week marks the 20th commemoration of Israel’s brutal invasion of the #Jenin refugee camp & its 39-day military siege of Bethlehem, including shelling the Church of Nativity while 200 #Palestinians were trapped inside.
On April 3, 2002, the Israeli military began its violent invasion of the Jenin refugee camp. Killing dozens of #Palestinian women, children, & the elderly. Human rights groups document that Israel purposefully targeted Palestinian civilians & vital infrastructure.
Amounting to war crimes, during Israel’s 2002 invasion of Jenin, horrific reports emerged that the Israeli military deliberately targeted Palestinian civilians, including the elderly, those with disabilities, and even Palestinians trying to seek shelter and safety.

Palestinians mark today the 46th anniversary of the Land Day.
#Palestinians mark today the Land Day to commemorate the #protesters who lost their lives and remind the world of the continued #injustice of #historic and ongoing illegal expropriation of Palestinian land.
More details in this report.
Marking the Land Day, Palestinians in Sakhnin city in occupied Palestine laid wreaths of flowers on tombs of the 6 Palestinian youths who were killed by IOF while protesting the Israeli government’s expropriation of 1000s of donums of Palestinian lands in 1976.

Kimberley Kitching was not an advocate for universal human rights. It's true she fought strongly for the human rights of some people, but not for all, not all were worthy, not the #Palestinians. Unfortunately Kitching was a strong supporter of the #apartheid regime of Israel. 1/
In the strange & politicised commentary following her early & sad passing, this reframing is dishonest. Kitching was deputy chair of the Parliamentary Friends of Israel. In February w/@SenatorAbetz they condemned Amnesty's significant findings on #apartheid without any basis. 2/
A piece from @latikambourke last week sought to laude her human rights work. It ended with comments from representatives of Israel's apartheid regime. It's absurd how reporters can include this without acknowledging the irony. There are some potential reasons as to why. 3/

Today the US House of Reps. will vote on a bill to keep the gov open and provide critical aid to Ukrainian refugees fleeing Russian invasion and military occupation. Part of that bill will include record funding for the Israeli military that oppresses and kills #Palestinians. 🧵
It is downright evil to force a choice between providing humanitarian funding for Ukrainians fleeing Russian violence and funding for our communities in the US, all while forcing through funding for the Israeli military that will harm and kill Palestinians.
We say no to Russia’s attacks on Ukrainians and no to Israel’s ongoing oppression of Palestinians. Shame on the politicians who’ve forced this impossible choice when our government should be supporting all people longing for freedom and safety.

In the past 24 hours, #Israeli police and soldiers:

- Killed 3 #Palestinians, all under the age of 22.

- Threw a stun grenade at a Palestinian child’s face, sending her to the hospital.

- Beat a Palestinian girl on camera.

- Injured over 31 Palestinians attempting to pray.
Yesterday, as #Palestinians arrived to pray at Al Aqsa mosque to commemorate a holiday, Israeli police officers attacked them by beating them, throwing stun grenades, and dispersing “skunk” spray, injuring more than 31 Palestinians, 4 of whom were hospitalized, including a child.
Last night, before dawn, Israeli soldiers killed 18-year-old Shadi Najim and 22-year-old Abdullah al-Husari after invading a Palestinian refugee camp in Jenin and opening fire on a group of local youth protesting the invasion.

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image

BREAKING: According to @cogatonline, in the last five years, #Palestinians in Area C were granted 33 building permits, while during the same period, settlers - transferred to occupied territory in violation of #IHL - were granted over 16,500 building permits. Annexation de facto.
The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies. It is intended to prevent a practice adopted during the Second World War by certain Powers (...)
which transferred portions of their own population to occupied territory for political and racial reasons or in order, as they claimed, to colonize those territories. Such transfers worsened the economic situation of the native population and endangered their separate existence.

Demolitions carried out by #Israeli authorities in the West Bank reached a 5-year high. 904 structures were demolished. This represents a 6% increase in the number of structures demolished and a 20% increase in the number of people displaced respectively, compared with 2020. Image
The table demonstrates that the number of demolitions recorded in the West Bank in 2021 is the highest since 2016. 900 of the structures were demolished due to a lack Israeli of building permits, which is impossible for Palestinians to obtain. Image
A bird’s-eye view on 2021 reveals that demolitions resulted in the displacement of 1,205 individuals, otherwise affecting a further 12,693 individuals. Particularly the period from July to December, under the @naftalibennett - @yairlapid government. Image

@amnesty: Israel’s apartheid against Palestinians: a cruel system of domination and a crime against humanity.

#Israeli authorities must be held accountable for committing the crime of apartheid against Palestinians, Amnesty International said today
in a damning new report. The investigation details how Israel enforces a system of oppression and domination against the Palestinian people wherever it has control over their rights. This includes Palestinians living in #Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT),
as well as displaced refugees in other countries.
The comprehensive report, Israel’s Apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime against Humanity, sets out how massive #seizures of #Palestinian land and property, unlawful killings, forcible transfer,

#Energy cooperation can be part of improved #Israel-#Turkey ties, but it should take a more climate-friendly & regioanlly-inclusive shape compared to past attempts to export Israeli natural gas to Turkey. @GabiAMitchell & I spoke with @MenekseTK @arabnews…
2. When #Israel & #Turkey reconciled in 2016, natural gas export from Israel to Turkey was presented as a major benefit for Israel. However, negotiations didn't yield results due to differences on prices, geopolitical hardships related to pipleline route & lack of mutual trust..
3. Since, #Israel consolidated its strategic ties with #Greece & #Cyprus, warmed ties with #Egypt and is cooperating with these & others via the #EMGF, in which #Turkey isn't a member. Israel isn't likely now to shift direction & seek export via Turkey at the expense of others...

In light of Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in #SheikhJarrah and the #Naqab happening right now, I thought it useful to draw on @PalStudies archive for some historical context. #Thread
In 1985, Palestinian jurist Hanna Dib Nakkara, published an article titled, "Israeli Land Seizure Under Various Defense and Emergency Regulations" detailing Israeli theft of Palestinian land in th language of law.… #Apartheid #SettlerColonialism
While Zionists frame Britain’s Defense Emergency Regulations (1945) as technology to crush Zionist opposition to British rule, Nakkara shows that they were originally enacted as orders in council against Palestinian Arabs. #EthnicCleansing #SheikhJarrah #Naqab

BREAKING: Israeli Border Police Arrest Salahiya Family & Expel Them from Their Home #SaveSheikhJarrah
The Salahiya family has been fighting to protect their home against Israel’s increased efforts to kick #Palestinians out of East Jerusalem in order to give their homes and land to Israeli settlers.

We are witnessing ethnic cleansing in action.
Mahmoud Salahiya, who Israel has now arrested for protecting his home, had this to say yesterday:

“We will not flee again. We have nowhere else to go. You expelled us once already in 1948. We either die in our home or we live. We are not leaving,”
