Malaysia’s Mahathir: US plan allows Israel’s occupation on Anadolu Agency

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

“This peace plan only recognizes Israeli occupation and completely ignores the rights of oppressed Palestinians,” Mahathir said in his opening address to the third Parliamentary Conference for Al-Quds in Petaling Jaya… “Malaysia has always stood with the Palestinians and rejected Trump’s proposal,” He called on the conference to take a stand against the complete oppression of Palestinians. “This activity should be an opportunity to overcome intimidation, violence and genocide against the Palestinian people.”

Prospects do not bode well by Askiah Adam

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

THERE are two schools of thought as to the fate of the newly revealed proposed settlement to the protracted Palestine problem. One espoused by Scott Ritter, former United Nations weapons of mass destruction inspector, that Palestinians cannot refuse and the other that it must be rejected, not least because of its total disregard of justice for the Palestinians and their dignity… If, as Ritter suggests, this is the chance of a lifetime for the reinstatement of Palestine and its economic development, how can the Palestinians refuse this deal when a refusal means the perpetuation of poverty and their ultimate genocide?

If no justice for Palestine — then no peace! by Workers World Party

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Those of us living inside the U.S. witness and experience every day the horrific impact of an economic and social system built on settler-colonial genocide against Indigenous peoples and theft of their lands as well as  enslavement and forced labor of African peoples. The same vile system is at work this very minute against the Palestinian people.

To keep the Rohingya alive by JB Gerald

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

The ICC has given its chief prosecutor the go-ahead for a thorough investigation of Myanmar’s treatment of Rohingya. Charges can be made without approval of the Security Council. A difficulty arises in a separate issue; the ICC chief prosecutor has decided there is grounds to pursue war crimes committed in Israel and awaits the court’s sureness that it has the jurisdiction to do so. Israel objects. The Palestine Authority has subscribed to the court. Israel has not. Israel’s Netanyahu has urged the world’s Christian Evangelicals to stand against the World Court, (ie, against international law). While this might protect Israel from charges of genocidal acts against Palestinians, it would also deprive the world’s peoples an ability to counter and correct Myanmar for its crimes against the Rohingya.

Artist-activist Remy speaks on his Palestinian solidarity mural in Santa Fe by Alex De Vore

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, homeowner Guthrie Miller appealed a decision handed down from the city’s Land Use Department in a letter dated Jan. 28 informing him that the material and colors of the mural, which appeared overnight on his property on Jan. 5, did not conform to historic district standards. In an email to SFR, city spokeswoman Lilia Chacon was adamant that the mural’s politically charged content did not play a part in the decision. Bits and pieces of the mural have already been torn down by unknown parties.

The mural itself was created and executed by Arizona-based Navajo artist and activist Remy, who is launching direct actions in Iowa during the lead-up to the presidential caucus. SFR spoke with Remy by phone to get a clearer idea about his intent and how he feels about the future of the mural, entitled “Palestinian Solidarity Wall.”

Can you tell us about the impetus behind the mural?

I think it was just to bring attention to the Palestinian struggle in terms of colonization and genocide.

Israeli Holocaust Commemoration Marred by Political Infighting by Richard Silverstein

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Returning to Yad Vashem, the western portion of its current site was the Palestinian site, Hirbat al-Hamama.  It was the agricultural fields of the adjacent village of Ayn Karem.  All of the Palestinian settlements were occupied by the Palmach in July 1948.  Their inhabitants were driven out.   The hill immediately adjacent to the current museum site is where Deir Yassin once sat.  And on another nearby hill in the Jerusalem Forest, Mohammed Abu Khdeir was brutally murdered in an incident portrayed in the HBO series, Our Boys. As conference-goers discuss weighty subjects of genocide and ethnic cleansing in Europe, they ought not to lose sight of the fact of Israeli Nakba and ethnic cleansing.  As the Jewish people recovered from the Holocaust, the Yishuv repeated a similar crime against the Palestinian people.
