My latest @Algemeiner on @RashidaTlaib’s alarming endorsement of @ZahraBilloo
"Billoo’s public extremism and the fact that the Women’s March quickly distanced itself... should make it inconceivable that any politician would publicly embrace her."
algemeiner.com/2019/09/23/ras…
@Algemeiner @RashidaTlaib @ZahraBilloo "Tlaib’s enthusiastic embrace of Billoo elevates a radical fringe voice that is not representative of mainstream American Muslims. Pew surveys show that American Muslims are “largely assimilated, happy with their lives, and moderate”

THREAD of clips from the 'Antisemitism' debate held in London where the 'battle of ideas' was convincingly and easily won by @mehdirhasan and @pappe54.
This first clip was Mehdi's summing up against the 'ludicrous, offensive and dishonest motion'
@mehdirhasan @pappe54 This second clip is Ilan Pappe's summing up :
"Think of how it would be if someone came to you in the dead of night in London and said I used to live in your house 2000 years ago and so it belongs to me." Zionism was a settler-colonialist project in the 19th Century and today.
@mehdirhasan @pappe54 Israeli historian Ilan Pappe tells the audience historically Jews were treated far better in the Arab world than they were in the Christian world ...until the rise of Zionist ideology

Appreciation Thread: Meet our dedicated team who made #GazaFightsForFreedom possible through tireless, extremely difficult (and often dangerous) work!
Of course we have Director @AbbyMartin & Producer @MikePrysner, who wrote the film together, contributes to editing and obsessed over every second of the film (maybe a little too much) 😊
Unfortunately our co-producer in Gaza, who we were on the phone with everyday from the day the idea was first proposed, does not want his name or image used because he fears retaliation by the Israeli state. “They will never let me leave Gaza if I do,” he said.

AN IMPORTANT THREAD FOR ANYONE WHO IS SUPPORTIVE OF OR INTERESTED IN THE PLIGHT OF THE PALESTINIANS

I have recently returned from a trip to Palestine, spending time travelling through the West Bank with my son & on that journey we met many amazing, beautiful and wonderful people
Without exception, those we spent time with on our trip all had a story to share about their lives under Israeli occupation. Some tales were heartrending & we felt limited in our ability to do anything to help although a listening ear was much appreciated.
Many stories touched us but this one in particular resonated with me, specifically as a parent and generally as a person who believes in basic human rights. It is alarming in its detail & I can be fairly sure that the extent of its malevolence is not reported or widely known.

I want to wrap up the last 72 hours & what I've learned:
1- Jews are white even though we are genetically from the levantine.
2- Jews benefit from white supremacy and are culpable in it if we do not admit to be white but also because of our whiteness all while being prime victim.
3- Whiteness is a political category that was socially constructed to justify the exploitation and subjugation of “non-whites.” It's all about access and conformity. So basically if shit's going well- you're in.
4- Jews are in cause they got jobs, homes, education, etc.
5- White Jews must take steps to dismantle whiteness cause whiteness is a system of settler-colonial violence.
-How, you ask?
-Mostly self flagellation and heavy pandering. Self loathing & #freepalestine hashtags in bio is one step closer to dismantling your whiteness/supremacy.

WATCH: Zionists verbally abuse Jews at a pro-Palestine rally in London

“You’re not Jews, you’re scum” is just some of the abuse Zionists screamed

Unsurprisingly, none of this was reported by Britain’s mainstream media

#FreePalestine 🇵🇸

Those of us who fiercely defend Jews for standing up for Palestine and condemning Israel’s human rights abuses are falsely accused of anti-Semitism by abusive racists - like those in this video - who are apologists for Israel’s human rights abuses, racism and ethnic cleansing
Another factor is this: Labour continuously takes the side of the likes of the abusive mob in the video, while Jews and anti-racists who oppose them are often suspended or expelled by the party

People like Chris Williamson, Jackie Walker, Tony Greenstein and Marc Wadsworth

So if i owned 10 cars does that mean that you can steal one?
Plus he said "greek and christians" as if arab Christians dont exist. Mate just because jews lived there thousands of years ago doesn't mean you can steal the houses that are there today.
Imagine if i walk into your house with a sniper in my right hand and a Bible in my left and tell you based on my Bible this house belongs to me 2000 years ago. Would you leave your house? Well u don't have a choice cuz i have a sniper in my hand. I am Israel you r palestine.

With polls showing notable drop in support for Israel among Democratic voters, the political pressure on 2020 candidates has increased. But in response to this shift, most have made their positions on Israel & Palestine more ambiguous—so let's dig deeper into their views! Thread:
To start, nearly every candidate uses similar rhetoric saying they support a “two-state solution” & unequivocally agree on “Israel’s right to security” while they claim to oppose the “right-wing” in Israel. But these statements are mostly platitudes that obscure or avoid reality.
1. @CoryBooker: Considered one of most pro-Israel Dems. Only candidate to co-sponsor anti-BDS Act. Says he “texts like teens” w/ AIPAC president. Lobbied Black Congressmen to not boycott Netanyahu speech. Co-sponsored resolution against Obama & in support of illegal settlements.

German neo-Nazis unmask #BDS by proudly updating the Nazi slogan "The Jews are our misfortune" to "Israel is our misfortune"
blogs.timesofisrael.com/german-neo-naz…
German neo-Nazis were bursting with pride when they recently hung their "Israel is our misfortune" poster on a signpost that marks the location of the destroyed synagogue in the German town of Gelsenkirchen.
blogs.timesofisrael.com/german-neo-naz…
There was an eerie echo of history to see the updated Nazi slogan "Israel is our misfortune" at the signpost marking the destroyed synagogue, because in 1937, the street where the synagogue stood was renamed for the Nazi magazine “Der Stürmer.”
