In a huge win for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, one of the world's largest pension funds, announced it divested almost half a billion from Israel Bonds. Norway’s pension fund divested the entirety of their Israel Bond holdings. 🧵 Image "We believe that it is entirely wrong for the Government's foreign pension fund to invest in government bonds, which directly contribute to financing the war in a region like Gaza," says Beckham of HK Norway, a Norwegian trade union.

It’s been one week since the Israeli military launched airstrikes on the over 1.5 million Palestinians trapped in Rafah, during the Super Bowl. Following that attack, the Israeli military has killed an additional 711 people in Rafah, and injured another 941. 🧵 Image Three days ago, the Israeli military forced Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis into operating as a military base, shutting down all hospital functions. For two weeks, the Israeli military has stationed tanks inside the hospital, blocking aid and supplies from entering the premises.

The Israeli government is launching the most dangerous stage of its genocide on Palestinians. 🧵 Image Over the last 4 months, and after massacring their families and destroying their homes, the Israeli military has forced displaced and traumatized Palestinians to flee from northern Gaza to isolated cities across southern Gaza, and then again to Rafah, Gaza’s southernmost city.

The Israeli military is bombing Rafah, the most densely populated area in the world, while Americans watch the Super Bowl. This is intentional. This is genocide.

We're demanding the world watching the #superbowl turn their eyes to #Rafah. #alleyesongaza #CeasefireNOW Image The timing of these atrocities is calculated. While over 100 million viewers tuned in for the game’s kick-off, the Israeli military began dropping nearly 1 bomb a minute on Palestinians in Gaza.

We, descendants of Holocaust survivors, call on the world on this Holocaust Remembrance Day to join us in working to end the Israeli government’s genocide against the Palestinian people, enabled and supported by the US government. The Israeli government has made very clear its intent to destroy Palestinian life in Gaza. To justify this horrific violence, the Israeli government has shamelessly manipulated Holocaust trauma.

Keep your eyes on the occupied West Bank. The Israeli government is counting on the West Bank falling out of the international spotlight, but we won’t let that happen. 🧵 The attacks in the occupied West Bank committed by the Israeli military and violent settlers—acting in tandem with the Israeli state—are mass atrocities and war crimes.

Today, in grief and horror, we recognize 100 days of genocide perpetrated by the Israeli government against Palestinians in Gaza. As the ongoing genocide in Gaza reaches its 100th day, we acknowledge what Palestinians have always known: that the horrors we’re witnessing daily are an extension of the racist and supremacist foundations of the Israeli state.

As anti-Zionist Jews, we’re doing everything we can to stop the Israeli government’s genocide in Gaza and stand in solidarity with Palestinians struggling for their freedom. We all have a part to play when it comes to ending Israeli apartheid and oppression. 🧵 Image 1. Target sources of complicity. Palestinian civil society calls on all of us to target the Israeli government’s repressive regime with the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctioning of strategic targets that profit off Israeli occupation and genocide.

We believe in freedom and dignity for all people. As anti-Zionist Jews, we are committed to doing everything we can to stop the Israeli government’s genocide of Palestinians. 🧵 Image There are many ways to show up and be in service to this movement. Now, more than ever, it’s crucial that we constantly engage in a practice of centering and listening to Palestinian voices and experiences, continual relationship building, and learning.

We’re proud anti-Zionists at JVP. But what is Zionism and why are we opposed to it? Image Zionism, in the words of its founders, is an explicitly “colonial” ideology.

“First, do no harm.” All doctors swear by this oath. And yet, Israeli doctors are calling for Gaza’s hospitals to be bombed, according to a letter released by over 100 doctors—including pediatricians—just two days ago. Image These doctors, derelict in their duty, claim that Palestinians in Gaza have “brought this annihilation upon themselves,” and are in full and vocal support of the Israeli military in bombing their hospitals “to dust.” Image

This is what genocide looks like. These are the 2913 Palestinian children killed by the Israeli military this month, as of Thursday, October 26. As the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza intensify, we recognize with horror and grief that this death toll is already inaccurate.

1/5 Image We demand a ceasefire now to save lives. To stop a genocide. The Israeli military has already erased 47 Palestinian families from Gaza’s population registry; all members of the family, from all generations, are dead. These are their children. This is loss beyond measure.

Today, 500 Jews were arrested and 10k took to the streets to support and to demand a ceasefire and an end to Palestinian genocide.

We shut down congress to draw mass attention to the U.S. complicity in Israel's ongoing oppression of Palestinians. But our work isn't done. 🧵 Image We can and will stop genocide in Gaza. But this horrific situation was only possible because of the groundwork laid by the Israeli state over 75 years ago.

Since 1948, the Israeli government built a system of apartheid and illegal occupation.

For 75 years, the Israeli government has illegally occupied Palestinian land and ethnically cleansed their communities.

Now, Gaza is facing genocide with full support from the U.S. and we're here as Jews to refuse complicity and say never again, for anyone. Image While 500 Jews, rabbis, and descendants of Holocaust survivors chant “Let Gaza live” and get arrested inside, a crowd of 10k sings outside.

We won’t stop until our demands of a ceasefire are met!

HAPPENING NOW: Hundreds of American Jews are holding a sit-in at Congress — and we won’t leave until Congress calls for a ceasefire in Gaza. As thousands of U.S. Jews protest outside, over 350 are inside, including two dozen rabbis, holding prayerful resistance. We’re here to say: not in our names, and never again. And we’ll continue our civil disobedience until Congress calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, or until they force us to leave.

Palestine is one of the most surveilled places on earth, and there’s a reason why. 🧵 Image Surveillance and AI technology play a critical role in maintaining the Israeli’s system of domination and subjugation over Palestinians.

The Israeli military bombed Gaza again last night, killing whole families as they slept, including 4 children. They killed at least two more Palestinians this morning, and there are signs of more to come. Over two million Palestinians are trapped in Gaza under a suffocating siege, with no bomb shelters and nowhere to run.

BDS VICTORY: In an act of opposition to the Israeli government’s apartheid regime and ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinains, the city of Barcelona ended all diplomatic ties with Israel. This includes Barcelona’s “twinning cities” partnership with Tel Aviv. As U.S. Jews and people of conscience, we applaud Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau's recent decision to cut ties with Israel over its apartheid crimes against Palestinians.

In addition to increased home demolitions of Palestinians, Israel’s security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir promised to increase the number of raids against Palestinians in East Jerusalem who are already reeling from their forced displacement.
