Anger after #Israel shuts down #Palestinian universities in East #Jerusalem as Israeli plans to annex the occupied #Palestinian territory continue regardless of international law

alaraby.co.uk/english/news/2…
#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
Meanwhile, the #Arab #American University's campus in Beit Lahia, in the besieged #Gaza Strip was bombed by #Israeli warplanes on Saturday in an offensive that left 2 #Palestinian children dead.

Richard Burden MP @RichardBurdenMP: #Israel’s demolition of the #Palestinian villages of Khan al Ahmar & Abu Nuwar is a war crime & state sponsored heft. My Urgent Question at @UKParliament yesterday.
The #Israeli army expels the #Palestinians from their village of Khan El-Ahmar in order to demolish the village for the benefit of building #Israeli #Jewish settlements in its' place
The #Palestinian Bedouin village Khan el Ahmar when over 500 #Palestinians attempted stopping the #Israeli bulldozers & more than 300 #Israeli military & intelligence officers from destroying the #Palestinian village
Stop #Israel's ongoing #Nakba & transfer of #Palestinians

Support for the #Palestinians gathers pace in #Trump’s #America

@realDonaldTrump’s decision to withdraw #US from #UN Human Rights Council was an attempt to shield #Israel from accountability, but it may have backfired among voters in his own backyard

middleeastmonitor.com/20180624-suppo…
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

'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.

Following are the 4 largest gatherings against Israel over the last few years, with tens of thousands of Anti-Zionist #Orthodox #Jews.

1) At the Barclays Stadium last year 06.11.2017:
Rabbi Shappiro: "The Jewish People Have No State!"
Listen:
Rabbi: "The State of Israel has as much to do with Judaism or Jewish Identity as China or Korea does...! They should stop calling themselves a Jewish State because that's a lie! They can call themselves, maybe Herzlstan...!"
-Thousands of Jews applauding
2) On June 9, 2013, tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews assembled on the streets of NY to protest against the existence of the State of Israel, and to condemn it's current evil decree to forcibly draft yeshiva students to their Army:

Envie de comprendre la question de #Jerusalem ? C'est par ici.

Il y a 3.000 ans de ça, en -1.000 ans avant JC, donc, Jerusalem est d'abord une ville bâtie par le roi #David (celui du combat contre Goliath), qui en fait la #Capitale du peuple #juif.
C'est son fils #Salomon qui édifie le 1er temple (une énorme Synagogue, en fait).

Le Salomon, c'est celui du bébé qu'il proposait de couper en 2 pour voir qui est sa vraie mère.. pas le Salomon de #Rabbi #Jacob, même si vous l'avez compris : dans les 2 cas, Salomon est juif.
Mais en -586, quatre siècles après sa fondation, les #Babyloniens (ancêtres des #irakiens) menés par leur roi #Nabuchodonosor, envahissent le Royaume juif, détruisent le temple de Jerusalem, et en chassent les #juifs, dont beaucoup
sont utilisés comme #esclaves à Babylone....

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

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

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

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...

Curious what facts MSM is not reporting about today's planned tantrum in #Gaza that Palestinians call the #GazaReturnMarch? Look no further and unwind this thread 👇 #Israel
These planned riots on the border between #Israel and #Gaza have been taking place for 6+ weeks and expected to culminate on May 15th (tomorrow), to coincide with the Palestinian “Nakba” day.
#GazaReturnMarch is of course named after the so-called "right of return" of 5 - 7 million refugees and their offspring because Palestinians are invested in the mythology that they flood and strangle #Israel, a country of 8 million. Keep dreaming.

#Israel will never recognize #Palestine,illegal segregated settlements in the #WestBank keep growing & #Gaza is a #ConcentrationCamp.
THE 2-STATE SOLUTION FACADE ENABLES #ISRAEL TO CLAIM THEY'RE A DEMOCRACY,allowing settlers in the occupied territories to vote & #Palestinians not
#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.

#JerusalemDay today, commemorating the reunification of the Holy City in the 1967 war on this Hebrew date.
It wasn't always like this.
The Jews were exiled from #Jerusalem in 70 CE when the Romans destroyed the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount and took Jews to Rome as slaves.
Longed to return - "Next year in Jerusalem" was their prayer.
Some Jews never left the Holy Land, and they eked out a living over the years. But in recent centuries they began their return. Jews were a majority in #Jerusalem for at least 170 years.

With the release of the #NorthKoreanHostages, the #LeftWing, #Liberals, and #MainstreamMedia is going to have a difficult time attacking #President @realDonaldTrump. The #diplomatic victories just keep piling up. #NorthKorea #KimJongUn
The #American #NorthKoreaPrisoners coming home shows that #MikePomepo was the right man for the job, and that #KimJongUn now respects the office of #President of the United States of America in a way he didn't under the previous administration. #POTUS
#GetToughDiplomacy is working; #NorthKorea is at the table and making overtures of abandoning their nuclear program. #America is exiting the #IranDeal. We've moved our #embassy to #Jerusalem where it belongs. We are back to being the leader of the free world.

The #President exhibited a sterling example of international leadership by withdrawing from the broken #IranNuclearDeal. Its the right decision for our safety & the safety of the world, to remove ourself from a deal that leads to a fully nuclear #Iran. #IranDealWithdrawl
World community gnashed their teeth + grumbled when Mr. #Trump moved our #embassy from #TelAviv to #Jerusalem. Now, they're getting behind that decision. I think it will be no different here. #Europe will follow @realDonaldTrump lead on #IranNuclearDeal. #IranDealWithdrawl
There is a 90 day "cooling-off" period before #sanctions are re-imposed on #Iran that will allow #Europe to come back to the negotiating table with us, which will allow them time to save face. #IranDealWithdrawl #IranNuclearDeal #IranDeal

A recent Pew poll indicates a staggering divergence in views on #Israel vs the Arabs of Palestine between Republicans and Democrats in America. Increasingly, Israel is becoming a one-party, Republican, issue. How and why did this happen? THREAD city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
The largely Democratic American Jewish political establishment argues the Trump admin through its #Jerusalem capital recognition/embassy move decisions and beyond are cynically acting as staunchly pro-#Israel, "politicizing" the issue. Pew says otherwise city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
According to the Pew poll on American views on #Israel vs. Arabs of Palestine, not just conservatives, but every group of American voters surveyed supports Israel over the Palestinians by a wide margin—with the single exception of “liberal Democrats.” city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
