"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
Yonatan Shapira-#Israeli AF helicopter pilot: I’ve been active in struggling against #Israeli occupation & #Apartheid. I am a member of Boycott from Within–#Israeli citizens who support the #Palestinian call for #BDS
This is my 4th attempt to break the #Gaza blockade from the sea
#Israeli pilot Shapira message to #Israeli soldiers:
“Refuse to take part in war crimes-Refuse to continue murdering people locked in the worlds' biggest prison-I was once 1 of U & I know that among U there are some who can still think-Refuse to be the guards of the #Gaza ghetto”
Another #Gaza escalation that will probably (hopefully) end in hours after both sides made their point and Mladenov makes a few phone calls. Meanwhile Netanyahu stuck between what he knows is a good ceasefire deal for Israel and his fear of looking weak in the eyes of his base >>
Hamas leaders facing a similar dilemma. They know the deal is good for #Gaza and crucial to improving life there but they don't want to go with something they can't present as a victory.
Netanyahu's base will be dissatisfied anyway because he's not about to do what they want and order major strikes on Gaza (just the usual sand dunes bombing). Bibi is a pyromaniac domestically and risk-averse crossing the border. So we can expect more incitement against "the left"

"Let’s keep in mind-Had we been #Gazan fishermen or children approaching the #Gaza fence, they could have simply put a bullet in the head of each of us & that’s it"

#Israeli forces detained @LydiadeLeeuw for questioning immediately after arrival at #BenGurion airport on 20 July
Over four hours, de Leeuw was strip searched, deprived of her phone & other property & denied access to the #Dutch embassy or legal assistance before her deportation
@LydiaDeLeeuw's #Dutch colleague Pauline Overeem experienced much severe treatment. #Israeli forces detained her for 24 hours during which she was “handcuffed & subjected to verbal abuse, including threats that the #Israeli authorities would use force against her”
Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ab…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough. jpost.com/Israel-News/PL…
#Israel-i voters endorse #Netanyahu's policies
March, 2015 Bibi said he wouldn't allow the creation of a Palestinian state.
He explicitly stated that the reason creation of settlements is to block #Palestinians access to #Jerusalem & the establishment of a continuous state #BDS
What #Palestinians Think Of #Netanyahu's 'No #Palestine' Statement👇
Benjamin Netanyahu made a promise to never allow a Palestinian state if he was elected. That played well with a significant portion of #Israel-is – but what do Palestinians think about his bold statement? #BDS
#Christians and #Muslims in #Jerusalem describe life under Israeli occupation
Mar 3, 2018
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre closed its doors in protest of #Israel's new tax laws, learn from Christians in the Old City of Jerusalem the realities of living in a Jewish state. #BDS
2012 - #Israel's Persecution of #Christians in the #HolyLand. - CBS News #Palestine is documented in this very special 60 Minutes episode.
WATCH how Israel's Ambassador #MichaelOren is confronted by Bob Simon, why he tried interfere to stop this episode
#Report#Thread 1/5 This young man is Muhammad Sharif Badwan. He was killed East of #Gaza City at the Karni crossing after being shot in the chest by #IDF gunfire on Friday afternoon. #Israel
2/5 Many news sites refer to Badwan as either a protestor or a demonstrator who was shot and killed by the #IDF. The photo on the left, from the DailyMail, states Badwan is a protestor. The photo on the right from CGTN states Badwan is a protestor as well.
3/5 The problem is Badwan wasn’t there to protest in the way most people think. This video was taken Friday afternoon at the Karni crossing where Palestinians were clashing w/ #IDF soldiers. At the end, you can see Badwan being evacuated after getting shot by the #IDF.
#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality
#Israel closed down the #Palestinian Hind al-Husseini College & Al-Quds University’s College of Art-which are located in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood-after banning an academic conference taking place on Sunday at al-Quds University’s College of Arts & detaining 15 participants
According to Palestinian reports, at approximately 18:00 hours, an #IDF airstrike struck downtown Gaza City. Two teens were killed as a result of the strike. Reports claimed an empty structure, a children’s park and a mosque were damaged. #Gaza#Israel#Hamas#IDF
2/7 The children’s park in reality is #Qassam Brigade’s “Battalions Square” and the teens who died were inside the structure circled in red. Beside it is the mosque circled in blue which was damaged by the strike.
3/7 Why did the #IDF target this site with air strikes? How does the #IDF know this site is used by #Qassam Brigades? Can we just take their word for it? Here is video of the actual strike.
#IDF officer moderately wounded after #Palestinians threw a grenade towards troops near in northern #GazaStrip during violent riots. IDF troops responded by firing towards Palestinians who threw the grenade. Local media say 15yr old Othman Rami Halas was killed by IDF fire
Unconfirmed reports of #Israel(i) airstrikes near al-Bureij refugee camp in the central #GazaStrip
#American#Jewish community doesn’t only conceal truth about #Gaza from itself-It lobbies US politicians to do it
The anesthetizing fiction: Yes-#Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005
Israel still controls Gaza in the way a guard controls a prison in which he never actually sets foot
First, #Israel declares parts of #Gaza off-limits to #Gazans. Israel has established —Access Restricted Zone—According to #UN: this restricted area comprise as much as 1/3 of Gaza’s best arable land. People who enter these zones can—& over the years have been—shot
Former #SouthAfrica, whose racism-discrimination-injustice-brutality–all rolled into an #Apartheid ideology-kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”-It succeeded for a while & ultimately crashed despite believing its power was indestructible. Exactly what #Netanyahu is doing
#Israel markets itself as an indispensable ally of the West; “only democracy” in #ME; defender of western values; bulwark against #Iran & #Islam-behaves with impunity & in defiance of all international laws as if the lifeline it enjoys from #America-renders it indestructible
Yasser Abu-Alnaja, a 13-year-old #Palestinian child,
One moment he was playing with his friends,
A moment later, his head was blown up by an #Israeli sniper
& moments later, he became a headless body in #Gaza's morgue
#Israeli snipers hunted him down just because they can!
13-year-old #Palestinian child Yasser Abu-Alnaja who was shot & killed by an #Israeli sniper in #Gaza yesterday.
The #Israeli sniper aimed at his head & succeeded with a single shot of great precision in blowing up his brain
If you dance to #TelAviv’s tune—&, sadly, #Trump does—then you believe that the only folk who support #Palestinians are either religion-hating, secular Lefties or radical #Islamists & #Hamas cheerleaders who hang out on the fringes of society. The reality is quite different.
The reality is different as was illustrated admirably at a remarkable gathering of mainstream #American#Christians in St Louis, #Missouri when the #Presbyterian Church overwhelmingly adopted a No. of robust resolutions in solidarity with #Palestine at its 223rd General Assembly
#US anti-occupation movement @IfNotNowOrg released its “Liberation Syllabus”. Crowd-sourced from teachers, students, journalists & rabbis, syllabus offers a collection of resources—so #Jewish institutions can integrate into curricula to offer balanced lessons about the occupation
Syllabus is part of @IfNotNowOrg’s “You Never Told Me” campaign, in which alumni of #Jewish summer camps, day schools & youth groups are calling on their institutions to change their #Israel education to include honest understandings of the occupation & #Palestinian narratives.
