🧵THREAD: A few points in the JTA article on my much-needed takedown of @thejewishvote warrant further clarification. There’s a LOT to unpack here, so down the rabbit hole we go!

jta.org/2022/07/29/ny/…
2. Despite @egsophie’s claim that JFREJ is not LARPing as the political voice of mainstream Jewry, we wouldn’t even be here except that one of their operatives along Lander claimed exactly that. Their “The Jewish Vote.” dishonestly suggests they are the mainstream Jewish voice.
3. I find JFREJ’ playing victim over name calling particularly rich considering it was a @thejewishvote operatives that initiated this exchange by calling me part of a “genocide club,” which was defended by Sophie herself.

Une proposition de résolution à l’assemblée nationale a été déposée ce 13 juillet 2022 par 38 député.e.s.

Cette proposition « condamnant l’institutionnalisation par Israël d’un régime d’apartheid à l’encontre du peuple palestinien » est d’une importance majeure /1
1. Condamnation de l’apartheid. L’apartheid est un régime institutionnalisé d’oppression & de domination d’un groupe racial sur un autre et des actes inhumains en vue de perpétuer cette domination : transferts de po, arrestations, tortures, meurtres, restrictions de liberté.. /2
2. Reconnaissance de l’état de Palestine. Cette reconnaissance symbolique serait un positionnement de la France face à Israël, mais ça implique la fameuse solution à 2 états. C’est aux palestiniens de décider mais ça ne ressemble pas à une solution juste… (discussion longue) /3

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela

Apartheid ended in South Africa, & together we can end Israeli apartheid against Palestinians. On @NelsonMandela International Day we honour a life dedicated to the fight against racism & oppression.

#MandelaDay
🧵
Mandela recognised the similarities between apartheid South Africa & Israel's regime of oppression against Palestinians. He never forgot the pivotal role Israel played in supporting the apartheid regime in South Africa & undermining the global boycott against it.

#MandelaDay
As a leader of the South African liberation movement that used boycotts & sanctions to undermine the apartheid regime, Mandela helped to establish many of the principles that today guide & inspire the Palestinian-led, global #BDS movement for Palestinian rights.

Watch the inspiring video below and take action now to share the strides we've made in the Palestinian anti-apartheid struggle far and wide.

As a grassroots, anti-racist, nonviolent global movement, BDS plays a critical role in the struggle to expose and dismantle Israel’s regime of settler-colonialism, military occupation and apartheid.

#UNinvesigateApartheid
We, Indigenous Palestinians, have been struggling for a century against the Zionist settler colonial project, which in 1948 established Israel as an apartheid regime.

Our struggle to resist its ethnic cleansing and fragmentation of our people & land is now bearing fruit.

Notiz: Von der #DieLinke in #Kassel bisher kein Statement zum Antisemitismus (auf) der #Documenta. Noch vor Monaten hatte sie (sinngemäß) im Zusammenhang mit den Recherchen der Gruppe _Bündnis gegen Antisemitismus_ zur BDS-Nähe verschiedener Docuementa-Produzenten den
allgemeinen Dialog ausgelobt. #BDS erhält ideologische Unterstützung u.a. in Teilen von dem Stadtteilladen #RotheEcke, der mehr als parteinah gelten darf.
Die #VVNBdA Kassel drückte noch im Januar lokalpatriotisch "ihre volle Solidarität mit dem Kuratoren-Team und den Macher*innen der documenta15 gegen die in den Medien kolportierten unverantwortlichen Antisemitismus-Vorwürfe aus. Auf der Basis wilder

Aujourd’hui, ça fait exactement 74 ans que l’état d’Israël a commencé à effacer la population autochtone, expulsant plus de 750 000 palestiniens et détruisant + de 400 villages. La #Nakba est un processus de nettoyage ethnique qu’Israël a débuté en 1948 et a continué depuis

La mémoire de #NakbahDay doit permettre de soutenir les palestiniens dans leur quête de justice en notamment en soutenant la campagne #BDS et de mener des luttes partout contre le colonialisme, le racisme et les oppressions de toutes sortes.
#GlobalizeIntifada
/2
Les palestiniens forcés à quitter leurs villages en 1948 ont gardé la clé de leur maison dans l’espoir de revenir après la guerre. Israël les a empêchés de revenir sur les terres & y a installé des colons recrutés partout, notamment en Europe. La clé reste un symbole de #Nakba

As Palestinians, we call for meaningful solidarity, we demand accountability.

Journalist syndicates & media studies/journalism faculties must take concrete action to hold apartheid Israel accountable for the murder of #ShireenAbuAkleh. #JusticeForShireen
loom.ly/X9KMu8M
Journalist syndicates, unions and federations should:

- End ties with complicit Israeli institutions.

- Pledge to refuse junkets to Israel funded by the Israeli government, complicit Israeli institutions and Israel lobby groups.
- Support journalists who refuse to cover assignments in Israel on ethical grounds.

- Support the International Federation of Journalists @IFJGlobal's case before the @IntlCrimCourt on Israel’s systematic targeting of Palestinian journalists.

L’armée d’occupation qui a assassiné la célèbre journaliste Sherren Abu Aqleh d’une balle dans la tête a pris d’assaut la foule en deuil et a failli faire chuter son cercueil que la famille portait jusqu’à l’église! Ils ont même arraché les drapeaux 🇵🇸!

@BDSmovement #BDS is Fascist International. Its dogma is rooted in the premise that Jews have no human rights, no history, no state, no reason or need to exist in freedom and safety.
/1
@BDSmovement This statement and threat exemplify #BDS Fascist ideology. The movement declaratively posits that Jews who resolutely protect their state, citizens, freedom, rights, with the same means all police in all the world do, are essentially criminals. /2
@BDSmovement For @BDSmovement to be a Jew in Jerusalem, anywhere in Jerusalem or in Israel, is to be a criminal, a war criminal, a person stripped of any claim to human rights.
To borrow @Trevornoah 's book title, to be born, live and be a Jew in Israel is to be a born a crime. /3

This AEN-organized Harvard Faculty statement is in response to @thecrimson's endorsement of #BDS against #Israel. Any faculty member (any rank, any discipline) at @Harvard can sign and share. 👇 harvardfacultystatement.com
The initial signatories are @TheAENetwork Advisory Board members @jessefried, @sapinker, and @LHSummers.
"While we may not agree with every point in this statement, & there are many diverse perspectives among us on issues of 🇮🇱 policy, the boundaries of academic freedom, & the role of universities as political actors, we are united in our opposition to #BDS & @thecrimson's stance."

Is it any surprise that the next generation of NYT “journalists” made the “brave” decision to attack Israel?

Harvard has a long & sorry tradition of anti-Semitism: from its anti-Jewish quotas in the 50s to this shameful embrace of #BDS
2/x The Senate UNANIMOUSLY condemned #BDS as anti-Semitism, when it passed the Cruz-Kaine resolution:

cruz.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
3/x “Whereas antisemitism has included attacks on the livelihood of Jews including prohibitions on land ownership, campaigns to boycott, confiscate or destroy Jewish businesses, and denial of the ability of Jews to practice certain professions….”

This @thecrimson editorial endorsing #BDS is beyond disturbing. Contrary to its claims, endorsing BDS does nothing to help Palestinians & only serves to delegitimize Israel’s existence, and isolate & intimidate the Jewish community, especially on campus. thecrimson.com/article/2022/4…
Moreover, equating #Zionism w/ White Supremacy is outrageously false, & calling Israel an apartheid state is absurd (➡️ adl.org/resources/glos…). The anti-Israel display mentioned in the piece shows no understanding of the region’s past or present. It just spreads misinformation.
Before publishing blanket statements on such complex and important issues, @thecrimson editors should check their own blind spots in this matter and ask why they deem it necessary to expressly single out the State of Israel.

One of the many things #BLM did with the millions it collected was help get the antisemitic, pro-#BDS Critical Ethnic Studies Curriculum made law for California State Universities, and now for primary grades — being added across the country.

Israeli soldiers assault a Palestinian youth in Hizma, a Palestinian village in the West Bank northeast of Jerusalem. Two soldiers hit the youth on the head and face with their guns--one of them fires live bullets into the air, a warning against anyone coming to protect the
young man. Palestinians film, horrified, from their car. Israeli soldiers regularly assault and attack Palestinians during attempted arrests, with no regard for the
consequences to their health. It goes without saying that even soldiers who kill Palestinians in cold blood face

Read my story, but, please don't cry cuz I love life.
*****************************
I am Muhammad Zakarneh, a Palestinian child, aged 16. I have a kiosk on the sidewalk where I sell tea and coffee to passersby in the industrial area of ​​Jenin, and because we are in Ramadan and
we are fasting, the kiosk was closed. I went wandering around on a bicycle, in order to pass the time until breakfast came.
Suddenly, an hour before breakfast, a special force stormed the city of Jenin with the aim of assassinating the brother of the martyr Raa'd Hazem.
And when they failed to achieve their goal of committing their crime, they decided not to leave Jenin without committing a crime. I was in the face of them, so they hit me with their car while I was on my bike, and they fired a dumdum bullet at me from the pistol of one of the

The Russian invasion of #Ukraine has squeezed some toothpaste out of the tube that can never be put back in.

The next time some politician wants to outlaw #BDS, regarding the Israeli apartheid in Israel, remind him of the invasion of Lebanon, the bombing of Gaza infrastructure,
and the shootings of unarmed #Palestinian protesters.

Apartheid was wrong in South Africa; the boycott was right. The occupation is wrong in Palestine; #BDS is not.

The invasion, bombardment and occupation of Ukraine is wrong. The fastest, most universal, and perhaps most all
encompassing, boycott, divestment and sanctions ever enacted have been levied on #Russia in the last week. If #BDS is justifiable against Russia, it is against Israel as well.

BREAKING. This is Ben Jamal @PSCupdates speaking at our press conference in 10/2021. Sooner than expected his prediction comes true: our friends in #GreatBritain are facing another onslaught against the freedom to stand with Palestinian HR. Thread 1/
Ben´s input: see min 18 to 22. - Tomorrow a seemingly innocent amendment to the "Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill" will be discussed in the @HouseofCommons . If passed its impact will be a desaster.
Here the assessment of Labour Councillor @AydinDikerdem. In short: legal warfare against human rights activism -and #BDS in particular. Very similar to Margret Thatcher´s attempts in 1988 (sic!) to kill the solidarity movement against #Apartheid in South Africa.
