.@mikopeled: After 9/11 the Bush administration shut down the Holy Land Foundation and seized it’s assets without evidence of wrongdoing because there was a political need to appear to be cracking down on terrorism. Image

.@mikopeled: Contact your congressperson and ask them to support Betty McCollum’s bill HR 4391 protecting the rights of Palestinian children against Israeli detention policies.

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
