Colonial Slow Genocide: Palestinian Leader Abbas asks Britain for “Balfour” Apology by Juan Cole

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.

On the occasion of this entirely justified demand by Palestine, I’ll share a couple of my posts that delve into the significance of that declaration, which led to settler-colonialism in the British Mandate of Palestine and to the current Apartheid state in Israel-Palestine and the statelessness and oppression at the hands of Israelis of millions of Palestinians. This extended colonialism is unparalleled in the whole world: no other colonial power now existing is keeping millions stateless and without the right to have rights.

Pepe Escobar: Israel-Turkey’s “diplomatic victory” leads to incremental genocide on Ahlul Bayt News 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.

Turkish leaders describe it as a “diplomatic victory”, and announced 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid is being shipped to Gaza on Friday; what’s your take on that?

P.E. – Whatever deal has been struck still leaves Palestine under a horrendous, medieval siege. Israeli historian Ilan Pappe was not far off the mark when he qualified it as “incremental genocide.” It’s like this was a post-modern normalization of relations with apartheid South Africa.

Hospital apartheid up for debate in Israel by Ramzy Baroud

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 danger of impunity which is championed by the government/army, society and religious institutions, is not merely the lack of legal accountability, but the fact that it is the very foundation of most violent crimes against humanity, including genocide. This impunity began seven decades ago and it will not end without international intervention, with concerted efforts to hold Israel accountable in order to bring the agony of Palestinians to a halt.

Genocide, Apartheid, Occupation and the Truth! by Faces of Palestine

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 is no mistaking at all what is taking place in Palestine daily is genocide at the hands of a Zionist Regime that holds Palestine contained by Apartheid and controlled by Occupation.

Genocide: the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.

At the time of writing, three more young Palestinians have been gunned down, slaughtered in the streets in less than 24 hours.  Young men with bright futures; futures that have extinguished by Occupation bullets.

Hunger Striker Al-Qiq Held Without Trial, Justice by Bettejo Indelicato

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.

Emotional, mental, spiritual and physical Solidarity. This, for the man, the individual willing to suffer to the end for an ideal greater than himself. That ideal is freedom from brutal foreign domination, Occupation, Apartheid and Genocide of his land and his people. It is a simple ideal, one that many of us enjoy and most of us would strive for if we didn’t.

Eleven years of protesting Israel’s occupation in Al Jazeera

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.

Hamdi Abu Rahmah has worked as a photojournalist in the village since the weekly demonstrations began in 2005. Every Friday, he dons a bulletproof vest, helmet and gas mask and documents the protests with his camera. Over the years, he has been invited to European countries to speak about nonviolent resistance in Bilin and other parts of the occupied West Bank.

“In Europe, many people don’t really know about what is happening here. Many people think it’s a war, but it’s not really a war. It’s more like genocide. Taking people’s land, demolishing people’s homes, step-by-step to try and stop the world from noticing what’s happening. Also, many people don’t really understand our problem. Our problem is not with the Jewish people. The problem is with the occupation. That’s why we accept Israelis and Jews to take part in our demonstration.”

Israel Isn’t an “Apartheid State.” It’s Worse Than That. by Dr. Craig Considine

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.

Certainly, there is a strong case for Apartheid here. But perhaps we are downplaying the true severity of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians… So if Israel is not – in theory – an Apartheid state, what kind of state is it? Let us consider Israel as a Genocidal state. As defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article 2, genocide consists of “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such”…

BDS: A Global Movement for Freedom & Justice by Omar Barghouti

Make a donation at our Indiegogo fundraising campaign right now.

In challenging Israel’s oppression, the global BDS campaign does not call for Israel to be treated according to higher or lower standards than those that apply to any other state committing similar crimes and violations of international law. Although Israel is by no means the most atrocious offender around the world, it is the only ongoing offender that has constantly been treated as an honorary member of the Western club of “democracies,” with the Holocaust cynically — and quite irrelevantly — summoned as a smokescreen to cover up this collusion. The virtually unparalleled state of exceptionalism and impunity that Israel enjoys today allows it to pursue its agenda of apartheid, ethnic cleansing and slow-genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine without any regard to international law or concern about possible punitive measures for violating it. As some progressive Jewish intellectuals have stated recently, “Never Again!” must always be understood to mean: never again to anyone.

The Great Divide: Netanyahu and Reality by Robert Fantina

In a sense, Mr. Netanyahu does make a point: Israel today symbolizes injustice, genocide, cruelty and barbarism, and is the face of apartheid. So, in part, it is what Israel has come to symbolize that motivates people to boycott it.
