1/ 1. Israeli sovereignty and International Law:

Contrary to off stated erroneous assertion, Israel has every right to extend its democratic sovereignty to land set aside for the Jewish Homeland per San Remo ( 1920), which issued a Mandate to Britain, whereby
2/ ‘close settlement’ of Jews throughout the area subsequently referred to as ‘#Palestine’ was mandated. 
In those days ‘#Palestine’ was 3-4 times the size of modern day Israel, and had  been a backwater of the massive Ottoman Empire, a mere satrapy,
desolate #JudeaisIsrael
3/ and unloved. The Ottomans called it Southern Syria. It was the Brits who renamed it #Palestine.
 In 1923 the British overlords stole 77% of the land promised to the Jews per the ‘Mandate’ and handed it to the
Hashemite King Abdullah from Arabia.

Thread: The 21st century in retrospect #COVID19
We must learn great lessons from this helpless situation that the world finds itself in. We were cruising on a ship that allowed oppression&punishment for those that spoke against oppression. A ship that criminalized those that stood against the legalization of homosexuality...
A ship that allowed the oppression of the weak ones. A ship that has sailed away from the #Palestinians, a ship whose captain denied the #Myanmar its peace of mind. A ship that accommodated "wokeness* where people blatantly oppose Divine guidance. A ship celebrated by the devil

1)The #PeacePlan unveiled yesterday by #Trump & #Netanyahu is absurd. Nearly all key elements presented as measures of stability are actually antagonistic to #Palestinians. Cont’d settlements will further incite more extreme contingents to carry out attacks on Jewish Israeli soil
2)A peace deal, ANY deal, requires a DIALOGUE between involved parties, in this case Palestinian & Israeli leadership- not a list of orders penned by the US. Not to mention, Trump's son-in-law goes on TV expressing hope that Palestinians weren't "screwing up another opportunity"
3)Palestinian leadership not consulted in this "deal," showing fractured relationship #PresidentTrump has dev'd with its peoples. As concession for all territorial disputes going Israel's way, Trump offers $50b in unsourced funds. Someone tell him this is not a real estate deal.

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.
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

#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
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 .

@UNRWA #Gaza #Genf

More than half a million people in #Gaza depend on #food #aid. Every quarter there is a discounted ration per person. The #goods are ordered for the first quarter of the new year, but not yet #paid.
Whether the @UN organization can pay the salaries of its 13,000 workers in the #Gaza Strip in December is unclear. In Gaza, under the eyes of #Hamas, @UNRWA operates 276 schools, 22 health centers and distributes food. The unemployment rate is also 41% (Total PA Area 30% 2018).
@UNRWA currently cares for 5.5 million #Palestinians. But they are missing 167 million € to pay everything. It would take at least € 30 million for the current quarter and € 60 million for the second quarter of next year.

One of my talks is about being an open-minded Jewish ‘settler’ and my interactions with and support of Palestinians. A crowd-pleaser that truly crosses social lines. One synagogue wouldn’t let me speak because they heard the word ‘settler’ 🤷🏼‍♀️
The US has reversed a longstanding policy saying that settlements do NOT violate international law. People saying this will doom peace efforts. I say that’s BS.…
Peace efforts have failed miserably until now. In fact one thing Oslo accomplished is separating the Israeli and Palestinian people more than ever and generate animosity and renewed terror. Perhaps injecting a bit of realism is just the thing.

I truly don't know if #Gaza can withstand another brutal war on it by #Israel. The catastrophe Israel is evoking on Gaza's collective population under the pretext of "fighting terror" is horrifying.
I was able to witness life in #Gaza for three days and I couldn't understand how this has been left to continue for 13 YEARS. I was horrified within days. It's so inhumane to allow a government to continue this reality using war terminology as justification.
It is not Israel and Gaza at war, it is not Israel fighting terror. It is a war on #Gaza. A region of mostly Palestinian refugees that were displaced, only to be held under siege. There is an entire generation that only knows the boundaries of Gaza. That can't pass a certain..

Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.

I wrote about the various ways migrants assert their belonging to the #Gulf, despite the lack of legal means to obtain Gulf citizenship.

Migrants develop complex and creative strategies to navigate life in the Gulf — defying transience and establishing roots, homes or even claims of citizenship.
With a focus on #SaudiArabia Arabia, I looked at how generational migrants (or long-termers as @anaffissahely calls them) use religious imagery (seeking refuge near the Holy Mosque) or patriotic acts (donating blood to the armed services) as markers of belonging to the country.

Local sources said that Israeli soldiers opened fire at the lady, who was waiting to pass through the checkpoint, injuring her leg.

#PortlandRally I was never much for protests or rallies. I get why folks want to confront these Nazis losers but it just plays into their plans. IMO best to just let the pathetic losers do their little rally. Non-violence is the only way to defeat these folks.
Trump wants violence. People who think they are helping deal with a fascist in the @WhiteHouse by giving him a pretext are misguided and IMO appear, whether wittingly or unwittingly, to be working for Trump. Go home folks. Register voters. It's much more constructive.
@WhiteHouse Remember, the GRU infiltrated Democratic Party groups in 2016.
