1/87-In 2016 @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism "woke" me to the massive corruption in our government:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS (#Globalists)

VS

WE THE PEOPLE (Patriots & @POTUS)

3/87-I'd like to start by saying I'm NOT an expert on the #NWO. I'm simply a Patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why... as I listened to @realDonaldTrump speak about Globalism, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.

A #SouthAfrican Lesson: Why #Israel is Doomed to Fail
Every time the #Israeli regime led by warmonger #Netanyahu makes a move to consolidate its #Apartheid policies, 1 inevitably is reminded of its former partner in crime, apartheid South Africa
palestinechronicle.com/a-south-africa…
Former #SouthAfrica, whose racism-discrimination-injustice-brutality–all rolled into an #Apartheid ideology-kept trying to market itself as a “democracy”-It succeeded for a while & ultimately crashed despite believing its power was indestructible. Exactly what #Netanyahu is doing
#Israel markets itself as an indispensable ally of the West; “only democracy” in #ME; defender of western values; bulwark against #Iran & #Islam-behaves with impunity & in defiance of all international laws as if the lifeline it enjoys from #America-renders it indestructible

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

These jews, shills, and feds will never bring up certain American National Socialists and White Nationalists. Why? Because these men weren't bought and paid for. They weren't controlled opposition. They were the real thing. Most of them were Christians.

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

#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”:

#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

1.
What was the UN created for?
What was the United Nations charter created for?
What were human rights associations created for?
What was the International Criminal Court created for?

Enough of double standars and hypocrisy. Enough is enough.

"a wall of silence"
Support by the Board of Deputies for #Israeli right wing government opens it up to a charge of double standards. It needs to ask itself how much in common the #Jewish people it represents have with #Netanyahu’s government in #Israel
middleeasteye.net/columns/how-wa…
"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?

Thread: One should ask, "Why are Palestinians protesting?" before cheering for their death in Gaza.

Most Americans don't understand how every day life of an average Palestinian is constantly and violently disrupted by Israel

I will try to give about 10 examples
Palestinians are forced to live in two areas -- West Bank & Gaza. It's almost impossible to go from one to another. Israelis control the borders

Gaza is the largest open prison in the world. It's surrounded by giant fence/wall
Life in #WestBank is miserable because the Israeli police are right there.

Every day, Palestinian children and adults have to go through all kinds of checkpoints and searches and harassment

They are literally under a military occupation

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.
