'You never told me': Confronting #American #Jewish myths about #Israel
A group of young American #Jews are challenging the the institutionalized myths they were taught about the Jewish state in classrooms, youth group trips & summer camps.
972mag.com/you-never-told… via @972mag
#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.

let me tell you about this 'cesspool of political bias' amidst the U.S. new international #snowflake policy of withdrawal from the Human Rights Council
are some of its members egregious human rights abusers? of course. it's comprised of member states of the UN, and it could do much better. until today it included the US, which separates children from parents at the border in violation of international law.
and yes, the Council condemns #Israel's behavior repeatedly, with multiple resolutions, upsetting many who may perceive this as disproportionate attention ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HR…

LOOKING FOR LOST HEIRS
by Pastor Bertrand L. Comparet,A.B., J.D.

Have you ever stopped to question the intense hatred there is in the world for #white #Christians?
"The written intention of our heavenly Father #Yahweh is expressed in His prayer when we pray, Thy will be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.
"In keeping with this, is #Yahshua's [Jesus'] statement that #Yahweh's servants have been on earth for thousands of years.

Today's @UN meeting will totally reject this @nikkihaley text: "Condemns Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel & for inciting violence along the boundary fence, thereby putting civilians at risk, demands that Hamas cease all violent activity and provocative actions..."
"...further condemns the diversion of resources in Gaza to construct military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas, when such resources could have addressed the critical needs of the civilian population..."
"...and expresses grave concern about the destruction of the Kerem Shalom crossing by actors in Gaza, which has severely hindered deliveries of food and fuel for the people of Gaza."

You out there, living in the Free World!

Do you accept a life such as this one?

If such a life is imposed on you forcefully, where you have lived all of your life & no where to go, what would you do?

#Palestinians under #US supported #Israeli #Apartheid
Those debating wither #Israel is an #Apartheid state or not

Just give me a better term describing #Israel other than #Apartheid

#Israel's apologists deny it as "#Apartheid" is a term describing the bygone racist regime in #SouthAfrica
If @FIFAcom played by its own rules, & if @FIFAWorldCup adopt its' worldwide policies indiscriminately, #Israel should have been suspended & kicked out like FIFA had done with the #Apartheid regime of #SouthAfrica

A letter from #Gaza to @JustinTrudeau
Dear Prime Minister,
We hope this letter finds you and the #Canadian people well.
Dear Mr Prime Minister, why do you support #Israel's brutal assault on Gaza?

Mr President @JustinTrudeau
We have witnessed your commitment to freedom & diversity. We have also followed with enthusiasm your activities, especially those that reflect your humanity, openness, support for civil rights & struggle against racism
We have seen you engage with different communities-#Arabs, #Hindus, #Jews, #Muslims & others-during their holidays. We have also deeply appreciated #Canada's generous support for the #Palestinian people & #Palestinian refugees, through the #UN Relief & Works Agency @UNRWA

A series of #tweets from the #Israeli Army Forces @IDF account have been met with shock. Because they destroy one of the biggest myths about #Israel & #Palestine, by showing how uneven the conflict truly is.

Under attack
The day #Netanyahu touched down in #Britain for talks with @theresa_may 6 June, #Israeli army posted a #tweet saying a #Palestinian had hurled a “large rock” at its armed troops. What came next is a damning indictment of the policies the #UK continues to legitimise
IDF Response
#Israeli army claimed a “riot” was instigated by more than 10 #Palestinians & a single rock was flung, leading to the #Israeli army using “riot dispersal means”. It then described how the group “flanked the soldiers”:

Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report
wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic

When #McKinney, #Texas police officer David Eric Casebolt brutally took down a teenage girl at a party in June, he used a form of martial arts "Krav Maga" in which he trained exclusively. These combat techniques were developed by #Israel Forces

thefreethoughtproject.com/u-s-police-rou…
This is a tiny reflection of a larger reality existing in #US law enforcement explaining brutality & militarization characterizing its police force. US cops traveled to learn from 1 of the world's most repressive & dangerous State forces—#Israeli military & intelligence apparatus
#American media political commentator John Miranda recently stated that #US police brutality is directly linked to the training some officers receive in #Israel.

A Surprising Thread of Tweets: To discover who are the attendees of the #US Embassy celebration in #Jerusalem

#US Embassy celebrations: A who's who of the Israeli arms trade

972mag.com/u-s-embassy-op… via @972mag
Only 30 countries took part in the #Israeli Foreign Ministry’s gala celebrating the new #US embassy in #Jerusalem last week. Not coincidentally, Israel’s ties with most of them are based on arms sales used to carry out gross human rights violations
Following 1967 War, #Israel began a diplomatic campaign to convince countries to oppose resolutions demanding it to unilaterally withdraw from the occupied territories. Israel attempted to buy votes of "murderous dictatorships" & military juntas in exchange for weapons & training

Among the Freedom Flotilla family, which seeks to deliver aid to the besieged #Gaza Strip, is an 85-year-old #American woman who flew all the way from #California to a port in #Scandinavia to assert her solidarity with #Palestine.
Barbara, a doctor, became immersed in the #Palestinian cause nearly 10 years ago after familiarising herself with brutal #Israeli occupation. Before that, she specialised in obstetrics in the #US & volunteered in various #LatinAmerican countries with her husband.

1/21 From the very beginning #Israel planned to usurp #Palestine
#OsloPeace didn't manage to dismantle a single Settlement,to the contrary, #Israel started taking more #Palestinian Land
During the 7 yrs following #Oslo,the Settler Population within the #WestBank increased by 90%
2/21 Following Intl pressure to stop Settlements #Israel began new tactics,under the pretext of natural growth,they expanded & fattened,the existing settlements & connected them to each other & to Israel
Slicing the land blocking any possibility of a contiguous #Palestinian State
3/21 #Israeli Settlements along with their Road Network & Security Zones, occupy about 42% of Palestinian Land.
Roads btw Settlements can only be traveled by Settlers,the basic Human Right of Freedom of Movement within ones Home Country has been taken away from the #Palestinians

UNFAITHFUL SHEPHERDS

"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian #Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.

Will #4corners present James Clapper as credible? He supported bogus intelligence that led to Iraq war.
Is trusting Clapper a lazy way of showing contempt for Trump?

'Mainstream liberals who despise Trump and yearn to drive him from office hold up Clapper as a man of unquestioned authority, integrity and patriotism — but no such qualities are available these days.'

#Assad: we didn't send people to #Idlib, they wanted to go to Idlib because all these groups have the same incubator and ideas. (around min 5) rt.com/news/428299-as…
#Assad on the #SDF: we share much in common, including profound mistrust of the Americans, we are going to negotiate with the SDF, if no negotiations, we are going to liberate by force, with or without the Americans in the picture (around min 12)
#Assad: #Israel is panicking because it lost its dear ones, #alQaeda/#Nusra. Both targeted our air defenses, Israel & #US inflicted some loss, but thanks to #Russia, the situation is getting better. Recent attacks by the Americans, English and French prove this point.

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…

.@O_Rich_ made the right reading of @ejmalrai 's article. Some might see conspiracies by Russia, but this is the right reading.
#Russia's most important achievement in #Syria is that it safeguarded the structure of the state and its institutions. And it is through this structure, and through these institutions that the state can reclaim the rest of #Syria. @O_Rich_ @ejmalrai

[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.

‼️Gaza Sea #Blockade👇🤨
Natural #Gas - #Gaza has it: #Israel wanted it. That simple.
Anyone who thinks that the siege has to do with 'terrorism' or 'defending Israel', or for that matter the history of the conflict, are missing the elephant in the room: fiddleferme.blogspot.com/2009/01/natura…
#IDF's #Gaza assault is to control #Palestinian Natural Gas, avert Israeli energy crisis.
2014 - #Israel's Def. Min. has confirmed that military plans to 'uproot #Hamas' are about dominating #Gaza's #Gas Reserves.

Video of IED detonation at #Gaza fence after it was placed by Islamic Jihad members awaiting IDF troops to come near it. #Israel
Wire cutters were left there to attract IDF soldiers to come near the IED so it would be detonated near them. #Gaza #Israel
A few more photos of the two dead. Seems the second PIJ member is too disfigured to be photographed.
