🧵 @POTUS meeting w/ PM of Apartheid Israel Bennett for the 1st time today. We demand Biden end US complicity in Israeli colonialism: sanction Israel & end the military & diplomatic support that enables ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. #SaveSheikhJarrah #MakeNoiseForJerusalem
Raya from @palyouthmvmt says the struggle to remain in #SheikhJarrah, to #SaveSilwan & to #FreePalestine is "a promise to our ancestors, our siblings, and our children." The #UnityIntifada continues across historic Palestine and beyond.

#SanctionIsrael & #MakeNoiseForJerusalem to show up for justice everywhere. @OsamaAbuirshaid of @AJPaction & @AMPalestine condemned every form of supremacy: we will fight white supremacy, Islamic Supremacy, Jewish Supremacy, AND Hindu Supremacy—we build safety for each other.

Un tribunal de Israel dijo a 4 familias palestinas en #SheikhJarrah, a quienes colonos israelíes quieren desplazar por la fuerza, que pueden quedarse en sus casas si pagan renta.

La ley es tan desigual que los palestinos no pueden usarla para reclamar la tierra como suya.
Los colonos israelíes promueven el desplazamiento forzado de más de 1000 palestinos en Jerusalén Oriental ocupada, incluido #SheikhJarrah.

Durante la creación de Israel, entre 1947 y 1949, al menos 750 mil palestinos se convirtieron en desplazados. La ocupación no ha parado.
“Tú sabes que esta no es tu casa”.

Esta mujer palestina discute con un colono israelí que intenta apropiarse de su hogar en el barrio de Sheikh Jarrah, donde el despojo a los palestinos continúa con la aprobación de Israel.

Israeli Supreme Court's offer to #SheikhJarrah families can be summarized as: Accept & recognize that our violations of international law and our policies of apartheid are legitimate, and in return we will allow you to stay a bit longer in your homes. 1/2
The actual offer is: Israeli top court presents Palestinian residents of #SheikhJarrah a compromise that involves issuing them with “protected status” & prevent expulsion in the “coming years.”

The catch: They would have to pay a “rent fee” to the settler org Nahalat Shimon. 2/
In most self-respecting courts around the world, the goal is to achieve justice. In Israeli courts, when it comes to Palestinians, the whole aim is to legitimise injustice by any means necessary. 3/

The israeli supreme court will rule now on the expulsion of Palestinians living in the Jerusalem neighborhood of #SheikhJarrah
This issue is extremely simple to understand. Palestinians displaced by the first war in 1948, went to live in this neighborhood. Now israel wants to displace them again to make way for Jewish settlers to take their homes. This is not a bug it's a feature of Zionism.

What's happening today?

Four Palestinian families in #SheikhJarrah have appealed against eviction orders issued by the lower court. Israel's highest court must decide whether to allow this appeal to proceed.
What will the Israeli Supreme Court decide?

The court can outright reject the appeal, paving the way for the Palestinians to be evicted from #SheikhJarrah. It could accept the appeal and set a schedule for hearing arguments, or delay to a later date.
Who are the families?

The families and their descendents moved to #SheikhJarrah in the 1950s, after fleeing their homes in what became Israel in 1948. East Jerusalem was then under the control of the Jordanian authorities, which built the homes for the Palestinians.

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.

11:49 pm in #SheikhJarrah: the Israeli occupation municipality came to erase our murals, after a city councilman vandalized them. The settlers filed complaints against us, claiming the murals carrying the Sheikh Jarrah family names & “We won’t leave” are, and I quote, “racist.”
Ofc, in the eyes of the very racist occupation municipality, the Kahanist signs that settlers put up are not racist, neither is the illegal blockade that bars Palestinians from entering the neighborhood but allows Israelis to walk in, armed, no questions asked. #SaveSheikhJarrah
Wait.. correction. The mural the came to erase, for “being racist,” says “welcome to the resilient Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.”

The occupation forces threatened us with a $1400 fine “each time a municipality employee’s car passes by the mural” .......

🧵In my meeting today w/US Secretary of State @SecBlinken. I told him that w/out making Israel's occupation costly, nothing will change—it is now a 1 state reality of apartheid from the river to the sea. The US should nix their $735 million sale to Israel.
I told @SecBlinken of the last 4 years of Trump—cutting UNWRA & US aid, closing the PA office, expanding settlements and violence without accountability, moving embassy to Jerusalem, the nation state law against Palestinians inside Israel. I asked him to visit #SheikhJarrah
I asked @SecBlinken to hear from the families directly, and to visit Gaza to see the full destruction. I asked him up visit my home city Hebron where walkways are divided, one side for Jews, one side for Palestinians.

I activated my long-dormant FB account to see if I could find #SheikhJarrah settler Jacob Fauci from Long Island, who seems drawn to any camera like a moth to a flame. From his public posts, I found a party animal, Kahanist, Trump-supporter, and COVID-truther. Some highlights:
He's willing to use the word describe vaccine passports and other COVID shutdowns.
He quotes Meir Kahane approvingly.

We stand with the Palestinian people against settler-colonization. We stand against all forms of colonialism and systematic repression by militaries and institutions.

A thread:
To be clear, in response to some feedback we've received from previously shared posts, we stand against antisemitism and all forms of discrimination.
We know that in certain countries the BDS movement may have been co-opted or taken away from its intended purpose.
But as we are based in many countries across the world, we primarily listen to the colonized and oppressed people (in this case, Palestinians especially) on the non-violent civil disobedience actions that they are calling on the rest of the world to do.

En quelques jours, plus de 210 personnes ont été tuées dont 198 Palestiniens et 10 Israéliens.

Le bilan ne cesse de s’alourdir.

Il y a urgence ! Le @UNSC_Reports doit condamner fermement ces violences.
2 événements sont à l’origine de l’escalade de ces violences :
➡️la menace d’expulsion de plusieurs familles palestiniennes à #SheikhJarrah au profit de colons israéliens
➡️les restrictions des manifestations de Palestiniens à la porte de Damas dès le début du Ramadan.
En plus de ces événements récents, des causes plus profondes peuvent expliquer les tensions actuelles :

➡️L’impunité des responsables des violations des droits humains et des crimes de guerre
➡️La discrimination envers les Palestiniens et leurs déplacements forcés

I hate talking about Israel-Palestine on twitter. It seems hopeless. You make enemies. But it also feels cowardly to say nothing. I’ve been trying to work out what I could say about the situation that won’t immediately be processed along partisan lines. [thread]
Many Americans worry that any criticism of the occupation is either inherently antisemitic or gives comfort to anti-Semites. Here’s a picture that may complicate that. I took it in Hebron in 2016. Two settlers abuse Breaking the Silence activist in Hebron
Three Jewish men walking through the ‘sterile zone’ in the center of Hebron on the West Bank, a place where no Palestinians can go, but settlers can move freely.

Un thread sur la résistance palestinienne à #Gaza.

Pourquoi #Israel concentre toute sa propagande sur le #hamas?

Pourquoi les officines israéliennes en occident attaquent les frères musulmans?

Quel rôle/realtions avec les dictatures arabes alliées d'Israël?

C'est parti⬇️
1. Pendant que #Israel massacre les palestiniens à #Gaza, toute la communication et la propagande israélienne aussi bien en interne mais surout en occident, consiste et peut se résumer à ceci:

"#hamas, terroriste, nous attaque.
Israël, victime, ne fait que se défendre"
2. La porogande israélienne veut ainsi faire oublier la "root cause": colonisation, massacres, déportations, apartheid...qui sont le quotidien des palestiniens depuis la création d'Israël en 1948...bien avant la création du hamas en 1987.

As a journalist, I understand the lack of resources in a newsroom on a weekend. I’ve worked those shifts. However, this story has issues and lacks details that only take a few extra minutes to fix. Here’s what they are:
The first issue is the headline. The violence *started* in East Jerusalem but it fails to acknowledge the catastrophic violence that has spread to Gaza and other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories which was also part of the protest.
The second issue is in the lede (paragraph). The word “noisy” is an adjective & we love colour in a story. But, it reinforces the stereotype of Arabs being loud and it distracts from the message. The word “orderly” also reinforces chaos & people’s inability to be peaceful.

Okay, let’s do a thread about #SheikhJarrah and how we got here.

(I’m no expert on this so please correct anything I’ve gotten wrong here.) #Israel #Palestine 1/x
It’s complicated but here goes… (again to the best of my knowledge)

It’s follows a ruling from Jerusalem’s District Court and is set to the Supreme Court, which is why the protests started… 2/x…
Back in the 1870s when Jerusalem was under Ottoman rule, the Jewish community purchased the land of what is now Sheikh Jarrah, in order to live close to the supposed tomb of a Jewish High Priest dating back to antiquity. 3/x

India's permanent representative to UN supported Palestians on #SheikhJarrah in Juresalem - a huge mistake and an amoral action

What is #SheikhJarrah and what does this have to do with #IsraelUnderAttack

Read on folks. This is important

1. SheikhJarrah is a property dispute between individuals and property papers are with Jews. Courts have also ruled for Jews. In 1885 Jews bought a few houses there and title transferr happened to them legally in land registry of Ottoman empire

2. In 1948 Jordan attacked

and threw Jews out from there and captured the houses and leased them to Palestinians. But did not transfer title deeds. So ownership remained with Jews per Jordanian law (English Law). In 1967 Israel took it back after 6 day war. Law was passed that those thrown out

Much diplomacy ahead of today's back-to-back meetings of UN Security Council and General Assembly to address the situation in East Jerusalem and Gaza. As always I am not seeing much reporting in Western media of reactions outside US & Europe. Here's a range of statements. 1/9

Pakistan PM has 'expressed concerns on the latest situation in Palestine and condemned Israeli Forces' heinous attack during the month of Ramazan on the Palestinians in and outside #AlAqsaMosque, defying all norms of humanity and international law' 3/9
