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
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
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.
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
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.
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
"a wall of silence": I believe this refusal to engage in argument represents a very serious failure of leadership. Organisations like the LFI, CFI & Board of Deputies & senior politicians like Chukka Umunna cannot avoid debate about the future of #Israel, the West Bank & #Gaza.
"a wall of silence" Does the Board of Deputies really believe that #Israeli forces should have total impunity to maim and kill #Palestinians? Don’t they believe that Israel is in any way subject to the rule of law?
#Netanyahu:"I Deceived the #US to Destroy Oslo Accords" #Israel never wanted peace,they already occupy #Palestine, only maintain the 2-state solution topic alive so they don't have to let Palestinians vote while claiming to be a Democracy.
#Syria launched 10s of missiles against 4 #Israel/I military objectives in the occupied #GolanHeight in response to continuous Israeli provocation of war (hitting Syrian & allies' targets in various locations).
1) Today we start with a long thread, detailing the Labour Councillors and Officers who have made antisemitic racist claims. Note that these are NOT rank and file members, but, people in authority.
2) Ahad voted against permission for a new @marksandspencer store because he felt that M&S are "Zionists who kill Palestinians". Dipu is quite unpleasant, he also hounded the members of the Holocaust Memorial Day org so badly, the Jewish members walked out chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-eas…
In few moments will share some information about the forthcoming war in #Syria.
1+/ The US/EU war on Syria is expected in the next 10 hours according to sources in #Syria close to decision makers.
All Syrian troops were ordered to empty their barracks and keep 5% presence only.
2+/ #USA and #EU may target - as expected - the Syrian Air Force (many dislocated and other spread but not flying), the central for command and control, all radars and known anti-air missiles, Ministry of Defence, Presidential Palace and other sensitive Syrian bases.
#Israel jets flew over Ghazeer (#Lebanon) at a very low altitude to avoid #Russia/n radars in an area where topography allows jets to hide. Inhabitants were terrified by the sound. Jets took altitude in the Bekaa for 3-4 minutes and launched its missiles+
#Russia imposed on #Israel to notify its Air movement over #Syria and the course of its jets if ever willing to enter the Syrian airspace. Israel believed Russia is informing Damascus to be prepared when knowledgeable about an Israeli violation.+
2.#Wylie explains RIPON operation, RIPON used “data exhaust” to build psychological profiles in coordination with Cambridge University faculty. it creates modern day colonialism, harming fragile democracies, works illegally, without morals.
#Breakingnews: #Hezbollah Nasrallah said: "If the Lebanese authority decides the #Israeli oil platform should stop working, in few hours these will be neutralised" (by Hezbollah anti-ship missiles).
The reason why #Hezbollah launched his menace to #Israel is due to #USA Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, David Satterfield (visiting #Lebanon) who threatened the Lebanese authority about preventing #Lebanon from exploring their oil
#USA Assistant Secretary David Satterfield said in closed doors to the Lebanese authorities:"If you don't give up of 860 sqkm of your territorial water to #Israel we won't allow you to exploit your oil in block 9" #Hezbollah answered the #USA and #Israel today, through Nasrallah.
#Breaking:An Israeli F-16 fighter has been shot down by #Syrian anti-aircraft fire on a raid to destroy Iranian facilities.
The Israeli military claims it shot down the drone and struck Iranian targets in #Syria after what it called a “severe violation of Israeli sovereignty.”
