Wonder why #LARiots looting and destroying private property happened in the Jewish Fairfax area of LA? Word on the street is that rioting and looting were purposefully planned for that area by the Islamo-Left coalition comprised of #BLM, #ANTIFA and #BDS, all are vile antisemitic
Is it a coincident the antisemitic groups of #BLM, #ANTIFA and #BDS targeted Jewish synagogues and businesses during the #LARiots? Clearly, the rioting, looting and desecrating of Jewish property were purposefully planned for the Fairfax/Beverly area of LA
Welcome to the safe city of Los Angeles. LA Police guarding Jewish synagogues.

Hypocrisy: former @amnesty "advocacy director" attacks the oldest US Jewish organization fighting antisemitism @ADL @JGreenblattADL by promoting a Nazi-style "blame the Jews for whatever you dislike" trope
Truly disgusting

Indeed, @SunjeevBery is so obsessed with the world's only Jewish state that he even dug out a screenshot of a 8 year old @AJCGlobal tweet +
And think about it: how much obscene hatred does it take to accuse a Jewish organization that fights antisemitism of promoting white supremacy?

Es reicht. Schluss mit der verlogenen Antisemitismus leugnenden Diskussion um den jüdischen Israeli #YossiBartal, ein Protagonist der vom Kapital finanzierten antisemitischen #BDS Bewegung. Darf jüdischer Mensch kritisiert werden? Ja- auch von nicht jüdischen Menschen. 1/

Das deutsche Feuilleton promoviert zur Zeit über die Texte von Achille #Mbembe, als ob die Diskussion wäre, ob man einige Stellen seines Gesamtwerks womöglich als antisemitisch deuten könnte – darum geht es aber nicht. Es geht um staatliche Macht und Verbote.(1/6)
In #NRW gibt es eine Resolution, die den Auftritt von Menschen in Räumen des Landes verbietet, die irgendwie mit der palästinensischen #BDS-Kampagne in Verbindung gebracht werden können. Demnach dürfen dort auch Naomi Klein, Judith Butler oder Desmond Tutu nicht sprechen. (2/6)
Das Ziel solcher Resolutionen ist nicht nur die legitime Diskussion über BDS zu verhindern. Mbembe hätte gar nicht über #Palästina sprechen sollen. Es geht darum Menschen zu bestrafen, die BDS je unterstützt haben. Deswegen auch die schwammige Wortwahl der Resolution. (3/6)

Response by @IntlCrimCourt prosecutor ignores overwhelming, decisive info provided to Court by dozens of ME, legal experts & 7 ICC Member States, shows she isn't looking for fair judicial process.

Instead uses unsupported claims of #BDS & terror-linked NGOs, biased UN bodies 1/n
Reports that @IntlCrimCourt prosecutor Bensouda colluded closely w/ Palestinian gov't & associated terror groups confirms that her prosecution is politically motivated – not guided by law or justice. 2/n
Response by @IntlCrimCourt prosecutor doesn't offer anything new in responding to strong evidence submitted by many (including us) to her initial request.

She even claims to understand Oslo Accords better than its negotiators (@AmbDennisRoss)

Well once again social media is demonstrating a plethora of nasty antisemitism in response to #coronavirus. Here's some greatest hits.

#Iran claims “Zionist elements developed a deadlier strain of #coronavirus against Iran.” They also suggested American Jews are collaborating against them.

Gisteren kwam het #stikstofrapport van @evert_mouw uit waarin hij uitlegde dat de basis onder het huidige #stikstofbeleid mss niet zo degelijk is als gedacht.
Een goede inhoudelijke bijdrage, maar er zijn altijd mensen die het NIET over de inhoud willen hebben.

@evert_mouw Met name @HuubBellemakers liet nogal van zich horen, en dat is interessant.🤔
Huub is namelijk van @groenlinks en doet daar niet verlegen over.
Wat heeft dat met Evert te maken?🤨
Heel simpel: Huub noemde Evert een ‘erkende nazi.’👇

@evert_mouw @HuubBellemakers @groenlinks Eerst even over de beschuldiging van Huub.
Die gaat over onderstaand citaat👇 uit het CIDI-jaaroverzicht antisemitisme 1999.
Heftig, nietwaar?
Ai…😱 Is Evert een #antisemiet?
Twee vragen:
1) Hoe oud was Evert in 1999?
2) Staat hij nog achter deze uitspraken?

Rima Najjar: Rebecca Vilkomerson of JVP, can we talk? Jewish Voice for Peace says it supports BDS, but for 10 years it had a head whose spouse works for an Israeli company (Check Point Software, which has close ties to the Israeli military). 
Details: bit.ly/39g6R0n
Najjar writes: I was deeply shocked by the news because, despite everything, I trusted Rebecca & JVP to do the right thing. To me, the matter is one of personal integrity…
.@BDSmovement
Rima Najjar: When I say I trusted JVP ‘despite everything’, I am referring to the agonizingly long wait we Palestinians have had to endure before JVP officially rejected Zionism, condemned Israel’s Zionist settler-colonial regime & embraced #BDS

The House can pass S1 like McConnell suggests
S1:
This bill authorizes assistance & weapons transfers to Israel, extends defense cooperation with Jordan, establishes additional sanctions related to the conflict in Syria, & allows states to divest from entities boycotting Israel

House Subcommittee on Homeland Security on anti-Semitic violence begins.
.@MaxRose4NY: We got to focus on why and how anti-Senitism is happening. “Jews are afraid to go outside with their kippah on.” Goes on to say, “We consider the rise of anti-Semitism across the political spectrum”
.@BennieGThompson, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee: Anti-Semitic violence is on the rise as exemplified in New York. We’ve seen religious institutions increasingly targeted for acts of violence.

THREAD on the changing attitudes to the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (#BDS) movement.

I’m NOT commenting upon the efficacy, morality or legitimacy of the (BDS) movement – just the shift in attitudes to it, especially within the @UKLabour party, since 2014.

#Israel
#Palestine
Following yesterday’s announcement of the Board of Deputies’ #TenPledges, & the near universal & uncritical acceptance of it by #LabourLeadership candidates, I want to say something about the profound shift in attitudes to BDS within @UKLabour, since 2014.
Legitimate & proportionate criticism of some of the actions of the Israeli govt can & still too often do too easily slide into comments which are understandably construed as antisemitic. ALL of us on the left must obviously try to avoid this.

A decade in review: the moments that shaped the past 10 years in #Israel/#Palestine

Another decade of the Israel-Palestine conflict ends and a peaceful and just solution for the Palestinians seems further out of reach. Look back at the moments that shaped history in Palestine and Israel, and will continue to shape the future of the region for years to come.
2010: A glimmer of hope at the beginning of the Obama era

In his historic "A New Beginning" speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, Obama promised to mend relations with the Muslim world, and highlighted peace between Israel & Palestine as key to that goal.

New report. Everyone interested in #Israel should read it.

@amnesty @AmnestyUK found to display atrocious levels of unacceptable bias.

1000,000s of posts logged. Dozens of Amnesty accounts followed. months of careful research.

link to report at bottom of this thread.
There is bias evident at every level of Amnesty. From social media activity to official campaigns.

Amnesty's receruitment policy is disgraceful and has destroyed them from within. They take on hard-core partisan activists and then pretend they are human rights campaigners.
There were numerous accounts found to have made unnacceptable posts - calling for Israeli Arabs not to vote - supporting terrorists - telling others to lie - giving advice to Hamas - calling for the end of Israel. There is nothing 'impartial' about any of it.
