Starting in just a few minutes! Miko Peled is joined by Laila Al-Arian to discuss the case of the Holy Land Foundation Five #freehlf5 #hlf5 Image
@mikopeled @LailaAlarian @Sueudry of @RightsDissent now introducing award winning journalist @LailaAlarian moderating tonight’s event #CivilLiberties #Islamophobia #Palestine Image
Laila Al-Arian introducing @mikopeled now on the case of the Holy Land Foundation Five and criminalizing humanitarian aid after 9/11 Image
Miko Peled: the story of the #HLF5 is a story of the American prison system Image
.@mikopeled: In 2004 the homes of each of the #HLF5 and their families were raided in the early morning by 15-20 heavily armed federal agents and police
.@mikopeled: There was no valid evidence against the men. The prosecution relied on misleading documents and anonymous testimony supplied by #Israel gov’t
.@mikopeled: The only place in the world where the #palestinian #zakat commitees were considered #terrorist organizations was in a courtroom in Texas during the #HLF5 trial.
.@mikopeled: The former U.S. Consul General in #Jerusalem, E. Abington, defended the #zakat committees as doing great #humanitarian work.
.@mikopeled: In the 2nd trial the judge was even more lenient with the prosecution and allowed dubious evidence that never should have been permitted in a courtroom.
.@LailaAlarian: the public release of a list of “un-indicted co-conspirators” of the #HLF was an unheard of practice by the government

This is a truly outstanding study from @CIPonline's @BenFreemanDC & colleagues of how BAD military spending is at creating actual, you know, jobs: lobelog.com/more-money-few… (Thread) Image
@CIPonline @BenFreemanDC @WorldBeyondWar @WinWithoutWar @AFSCpeace Trump, like many pols before him, likes to trumpet the fact that military spending (by the US people, or via Saudi purchases of US weapons systems) is a big job-creation machine. But... Image

With the powerful mass movement for democracy & accountability in #Algeria/#Algerie reaching a turning point in next 2 days, 7 diverse Algerian personalities launched this video appeal for unity & real dialog: (Thread) tsa-algerie.com/lappel-de-pers…
Of note (& sad), that the good news site TSA that carried this has been banned in #Algeria. But it is on FB & other platforms so it should get wide distribution? It's issued in the name of "Agreement for the sake of protecting the homeland" Image
The seven people who signed the Agreement are standing together and take turns reading short sections of it. This one just says: "Appeal to the Algerian people" Image
