THREAD: This is Burin, my father’s hometown in Palestine. My father remembers what that place was like before Israel’s occupation. Today, this town is known for being one of the most targeted by Israeli settler violence. #MyPalestineStory #Nakba72
There are people over 50 in this town who have known nothing but brutal foreign military rule for their entire lives. Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine is the longest in modern history, with no end in sight (Israel's illegal annexation is about to declare it permanent).
Today marks 72 years of the Nakba, which is often mistook for a historical event whose memory needs to be kept alive.

We celebrate today the 3rd year ceremony of the martrydom of Basil Alaraj (aka the educated fighter).
Martyr Basil was a Palestinian activist that have famous inspiring writings about revolution & resistance. He was also a pharmacist.
He said:"If you are educated then you must be a fighter too;if you're educated but you're not willing to fight,then **** u & ur education".
He said that if the Palestinians didn't take the initiative to resist, then they would be just waiting for the time were they will be killed
He spent 5 months with 6 of his fellow Palestinian resistance companions in the Israeli prison & they started a hunger strike that lasted for months after which they were set free.

When Palestine was partitioned by the UN in 1947 without the consent of Palestinians, the Jews, who owned less than six per cent of the total land area of Palestine and constituted no more than one third of the population at the time of partition,

were handed more than half of its overall territory. Within the borders of the UN-proposed state, they owned only eleven per cent of the land, and were the minority in every district.

Palestine was proposed to be divided into three parts by the UN. On forty-two per cent of the land, 818,000 Palestinians were to have a state that included 10,000 Jews, while the state for the Jews was to stretch over almost fifty-six per cent of the land.....

I'm sick of all the propaganda that is being spread in relations to the protest that took place at York. So hear me out on this thread as I am tired of having to repeat myself.
Why Palestinians had every right to protest at York.
A damn thread.
Palestinians are constantly repeating themselves and making it clear that our issue is with Zionists and not Jews. We respect Jews and are taught that they are our "cousins"- to further emphasize the love to another group of people who share an Abrahamic religion.
We're constantly correcting the terms and making sure everyone understands the difference between zionism and Judaism. For those that may not be familiar with the terminology, in sum, zionism is a political movement while Judaism is a religion.

WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Catch up with the latest stories from @MintPressNews that the #MSM was too afraid to cover, like the alarming SWAT-style arrest of government critic and journalist @MaxBlumenthal, in the Trump administration's escalating war on #FreePress. mintpressnews.com/arrest-journal…
@MaxBlumenthal Rather than do its job, part of which is to keep governments in check through watchdog journalism, Western media has failed its own, abandoned the public, and allowed itself to become an arm of US imperialism through propaganda and media blackouts.
Whether it's the shocking political arrest of fellow journalists like Blumenthal or #Assange, or anti-government protests around the the world, #MSM news coverage is dictated by foreign policy and whether or not sitting governments (or journalists) are considered U.S. allies.

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.

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.”
