Nous vivons tous avec, autour de nous, des #héros discrets du quotidien.

Je vais vous parler de David #Applebaum

Déroulez ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Né en 1952 aux USA, David Applebaum mène à la fois des études religieuses et des études médicales, car il estime que la meilleure manière d'accomplir son devoir en tant que rabbin, c'est de #sauver des vies humaines. En 1976, il est ordonné Rabbin, et en 1978, docteur en Médecine
Alors que la fin des années 1970 voit exploser le nombre d'attentats #islamistes en #Israël, David Applebaum décide de quitter le confort des hôpitaux américains pour venir aider les urgentistes en Israël : il fait son #Alya en 1981 et rejoint l'hôpital Shaare Zedek de #Jerusalem

#Thread Israeli forces chased down and shot to kill Iyad Hallaq, a 32-year old autistic man, the only son to his parents, a resident of Wadi il Joz, on his way to a special needs school. abcnews.go.com/International/… #Israel #StateViolence #iyadhalak #Freedom
This is illustrative of Israel's use of lethal force against all Palestinians from Gaza to Haifa and Jerusalem. Here is an excerpt from something I wrote and a link to a UN report condemning a culture of impunity for Israeli state violence. #Israel #StateCrimes #iyadhalak

1/ 1. Israeli sovereignty and International Law:
#JudeaisIsrael

Contrary to off stated erroneous assertion, Israel has every right to extend its democratic sovereignty to land set aside for the Jewish Homeland per San Remo ( 1920), which issued a Mandate to Britain, whereby
2/ ‘close settlement’ of Jews throughout the area subsequently referred to as ‘#Palestine’ was mandated. 
In those days ‘#Palestine’ was 3-4 times the size of modern day Israel, and had  been a backwater of the massive Ottoman Empire, a mere satrapy,
desolate #JudeaisIsrael
3/ and unloved. The Ottomans called it Southern Syria. It was the Brits who renamed it #Palestine.
 In 1923 the British overlords stole 77% of the land promised to the Jews per the ‘Mandate’ and handed it to the
Hashemite King Abdullah from Arabia.

.@jack @FaceBook @PolitiFact censor and target conservatives - not a single one has #FactCheck, removed all the false #RussiaHoax stories written about @realDonaldTrump However these platforms go out of their way to protect Biden/Dems. Falsely charging #fakenews to justify
Censorship. But these platforms have allowed #Iran to threaten #Israel, #China to lie to the world, the #WHO to lie, @kathygriffin to share tweets threatening @realDonaldTrump for more than 17 hours before removing it. Their actions & their politics r obvious. The
Potential to interfere in the #2020election is dangerous - #Twitter, #Facebook #FactCheck operate like bias publishers - It must stop. there is more interference from these platforms in Democracy and they must not have the power to control info flow during this election, or ever.

THREAD—#Israel & UAE thaw

🇦🇪’s Itehad Airways’ first flight 2 🇮🇱 created a stir in ME & even finding traction in Turkey & 🇵🇰 w/ trolls running #boycottUAE trends.

But many fails 2 understand geo-political motives of warming ties of #GCC w/ 🇮🇱.

Here is how it prompted ?
1/
(a) Antipathy towards Iran is “cliched” convergence but 🇦🇪 & 🇸🇦 feel shaky when

(b) Iran's #IRGC is upping the ante:

(i) 🇮🇷 pushes 2 populate UAE islands occupied by Tehran;
(ii) succeeds 2 make look US forces vulnerable by “harassment”;
(iii) assertively claiming....2/
....."ownership" of the Gulf.
(iv) making new claims, re Bahrain & Kuwait;
(v) US retrenched it’s leadership when 🇮🇷 sponsored an attack on KSA’s installation.

2 big obstacles 4 GCC 2 normalise ties w/ #Israel were:
(A) ground swell public opinion &
(B) Palestinian cause

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/
Warum überhaupt Kritik leisten? Kritik ist nicht immer angenehm aber eines steht fest: Sie ist wichtig. Durch Kritik von links + dem damit verbunden Widerstand, hat z.B der Bau von unzähligen Atomkraftwerken in Deutschland verhindert werden können . Die unerlässliche Kritik am /2
am #Rassismus hat dafür gesorgt, dass er überhaupt in der hiesigen Gesellschaft wahrgenommen wird. Leider nicht genug, denn die tiefgreifende Auseinandersetzung mit dem Alltagsrassismus, dem institutionellen Rassismus und jedem anderen #Rassismus ist erst am Anfang. /3

-Long thread-

#Palestine #Austria #Israel #Ramallah

Austria has not recognized "Palestine" as a state. How can there be a “Representation of the State of Palestine” in Vienna?
The Palestinian Authority is mad at Austria.
The reason for this is a statement made by the legal department of the Austrian Foreign Ministry at the International Criminal Court in The Hague in mid-March. Roughly speaking, the republic questioned the ICC's jurisdiction over "Palestine" because it was not recognized
as a sovereign state. Although some other states, including Germany, have found much clearer words to the Court on this issue, the PA regards the Austrian statement as an unfriendly act and therefore quotes the Austrian representative in Ramallah to diplomatically wash her head.

May 19, 1950: Operation Ezra and Nehemia, a plan to bring Iraqi Jews to Israel, is launched with the first airlift of 175 Jews.

@MattiFriedman
1/ Antisemitism in the Arab world was rife during and immediately after World War Two. Egyptian society became enamoured with the Nazi war against the Jews, and this spread to Iraq - which had a significant Jewish population.
2/ In particular in June 1941, a violent pogrom, now called the Farhud, swept through Baghdad's significant Jewish population and killed 180 Jews, with over 1,000 injured. Looting of Jewish property took place and 900 Jewish homes were destroyed. The Jews were now on notice.

@Israel_Studies @AndrewPessin @NGOmonitor @palwatch My pleasure, I’m glad to help @shaynamalka! But I just checked & I’m surprised to see that Al-Shabaka hasn’t been removed yet. It’s still listed in the Guide (uncritically) & first up alongside reputable think tanks, centers & institutes. ☹️ 1/
@Israel_Studies @AndrewPessin @NGOmonitor @palwatch @shaynamalka The Guide has a disclaimer but the HomePage enthusiastically recommends the entries as resources that offer “tips for effective research” & help students, scholars “explore the rich world of modern #Israel 🇮🇱 Studies”. Based on these criteria, including Al-Shabaka is #shameful 2/
@Israel_Studies @AndrewPessin @NGOmonitor @palwatch @shaynamalka I’m not sure who vetted the Guide or which “expert” recommended it’s inclusion, but someone steered you very wrong. Let me explain, in brief. First, Al-Shabaka’s key sponsors are affiliated w/Badil. It’s a virulent anti Israel org that wins prizes for #antisemitic cartoons 😡 3/

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, a prominent rabbi was asked if Baruch Goldstein, a murderous terrorist who opened fire in the Cave of the Patriarchs, killed 29 & wounded 125 people, is a detestable murderer?
His response: Goldstein was wrong but he's a saint.
Full Context & Translation👇
Baruch Goldstein was a member of the Jewish Defense League founded by his acquittance Meir #Kahana which was classified by the FBI in 2001 as a right wing terrorist group.
He immigrated to #Israel in `83 and was third on the now outlawed Kach party in `84.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baruch_Go…
He studied medicine in the US & served as a physician in the #IDF. Later, he worked near Hebron (Al-Khalil) as an emergency doctor.
He refused to treat Arabs, even those serving in the IDF because he believed it was against Jewish Halacha laws to treat non-Jews even for payment.

#Nakba72 is #ThePalestinianLie whereby Palestinian Arabs were commanded to leave #Israel by the Arab League, who promised to annihilate the Jews. In 1948 they hijacked the Shoah to pretend they were victims. They've been claiming victimhood ever since.
Pls retweet this thread
2)
#Nakba72 is another #ThePalestinianLie whereby Israel's enemies hijacked Jewish suffering & symbols as their own.

#Nakba72 is the remarketing of their attempt to wipe out Jews & Jewish history from the land of #Israel. The Jewish Homeland
3)
#Nakba72 and #ThePalestinianLie. No independent country of #Palestine has ever existed. The only land these Arabs have EVER owned is land sliced off of the Jewish Homeland and given to them in 1993-1995 per the Oslo Agreements

Rashid Khalidi on why a century of settler colonialism with American support has failed to defeat Palestinians bit.ly/2LkVKZV #Palestine #Israel Image
Rashid Khalidi’s latest book caps a long career of chronicling Palestinian political life in the era of Zionism...
The book is compelling for its understanding that Zionism and its friends have waged a century of aggression to secure an anachronistic settler-colonial project without being able to do so.
