"Jerusalem" (British Patriotic Song)

One of the songs in the Kabalarian Philosophy's second Song Book #js
Probably my first exposure this British "anthem" was ELP's version:

Saw them twice in concert. Just three guys. Emerson the innovator on organ, Lake's crystal clear vocals & Palmer's drum set 😎
"Carl Palmer and His Five Thousand Pound Steel Drum Set"…

This morning a Palestinian terrorist opened fire on Israeli civilians in #Jerusalem, murdering one and injuring 4. The terrorist, Fadi Abu Shkhaydam, a known member of the Hamas terrorist org. was neutralized. My prayers and thoughts are with the loved ones of the victims.
Image released on Palestinian media outlets shows Hamas member Fadi Abu Shkhaydam, 42, who was known for radicalization and hate speech on Friday sermons.
Fadi Abu Shkhaydam is seen here spreading hate against the UAE and its leadership in one of the sermons:

Shocked and helpless, the Palestinian Abdullah Khader watched his own home being demolished in Beit Hanina town, after the Israeli occupation municipality in #Jerusalem forced the Khader family to demolish their home or else they'd have to pay high punitive fines. (1/3)
'Israel' claims the land, where Abdullah has lived ever since he was a child, is owned by the Hadassah Zionist Organisation. (2/3)
Abdullah has lost his ability to move after the Israeli court decided that he didn't have any right in his house; he had a stroke as a result of the decision. (3/3)

Just before 14:00, exactly 20 years ago today, a suicide bomber stepped into a Pizza place in #Jerusalem.
He ordered pasta.
Then he detonated a bomb hidden inside a guitar case and all hell broke loose.

The results were catastrophic.
15 were killed, 7 of them children.
One family in particular, was destroyed in a split second.
43 year old Mordechai Schijveschuurder, his wife Tzira, 14 year old daughter Raya, 4 year old son Avraham and 2 year old daughter Hemda. Killed.
2 other children from the Schijveschuurder family were critically injured.
The Palestinian Authority refrained from arresting the ones responsible. Eventually, all behind the attack were arrested by Israel.

Day 2 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

On the road from Bursa to Çeşme

While on road lets talk😊

Did you know that #Turkey is an important source of #Kosher food? Hundreds of manufacturers all over the country produce anything from raw material to ready to eat products.
By the way: Kosher food does not mean food that is blessed by a rabbi!

Rather it is food that has been prepared according to Jewish law - there are no mixtures of meat/milk, it is insect free, meat or chicken have to be prepared properly according to Jewish law and more...
The Turkish Jewish community @tyahuditoplumu through @DenetGida which certifies hundreds of plants, as well as the @OrthodoxUnion and @OKKosher have their field representatives inspect plants to assure they are fit for the kosher consumer.

PLEASE SHARE- MONDAY DAY OF ACTION: Palestinian people in Silwan, #Jerusalem are in danger of being forcibly expelled from their homes. The Israeli government is threatening to demolish the homes this Monday for Jewish Israeli settlers to take over the land. #WeWillRemain
The Israeli ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Silwan is part of Zionism’s long and violent history across all of Palestine, which the U.S. has funded for decades. #SaveSilwan #SaveSheikhJarrah #WeWillRemain

Graphic from @RabetbyPIPD
Stand on the right side of history and defend Silwan! Tell Democratic leadership to stop giving Israel the green light on ethnic cleansing:

Hamas affiliated groups in #Jerusalem had found another excuse to escalate the situation in the city , now they’re calling for a March from the Al Aqsa mosque to Damascus Gate after the Friday prayers because of an “insult to the Prophet Mohammed”
They claim that they heard this magical “insult” during the Flags March on Wednesday and since then it was dominating the discourse there.
If you’re wondering - they did not March anywhere after 10 synagogues were burned by Muslim extremists in Lod.
#Israel #Jerusalem
So it will be wise to monitor those areas for any possible provocations, especially considering the current re escalation on the #Gaza border

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine
#SheikJarrah #Silwan #Jerusalem #Gaza #EqualityforAll #OneLove
Full thread in 1 convenient viewing location here:…
I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

I am a runner.
I run marathons around whole world. Never have I been attacked violently by police forces as I was today, during the Jerusalem run from #SaveSheikhJarrah to #SaveSilwan.
I was beaten six times, attacked by Israeli forces, for running in my ancestral town & city.
We ran 3.5 kilometres from Sheikh Jarrah to Silwan. I arrived at the finish line Batn Al-Hawa, Silwan neighbourhood under threat of ethnic cleansing by Israel.
All runners wore t-shirts that had # 7850 printed on back, the number of Palestinian Jerusalemites under threat.
Out of nowhere, Israeli forces raided the finish line, where we had gathered and been singing songs, drinking water, and resting our legs.
They were violent, attacked everyone indiscriminately, beating, throwing grenades, & firing rubber bullets at some.

A few years later, in 1950, Isaiah, his mother, his sister Giza and his brothers Moshe, Reuven and Herman made alliyah.

At this moment the Israeli police is conducting a mass detention campaign against Palestinian citizens of Israel. Our people are under attack and we demand international protection. Shamefully most of the world has ignored our situation. Here are some facts (Thread).
We are over 20% of Israel’s population, 1.8 million approximately, living under a system of institutional discrimination & persecution described by @hrw, @btselem & Palestinian human rights organizations as #Apartheid: Ignoring this means complicity with this reality.
We took over our streets to peacefully demonstrate for #Jerusalem and our people’s rights. We were met with police brutality & complicity with Zionist extremists that attacked us, including in our homes, the streets, universities, work places, etc.
