Genocide supporter may get top job at Israel Holocaust memorial by Ali Abunimah

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 UN Genocide Convention defines genocide as any of a number of inhuman acts “committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such.”
Under the convention, the crime of genocide includes “direct and public incitement to commit genocide.”
If anything fits this description it is Eitam’s record of dehumanizing Palestinians as “evil” and as “animals” and calling for their mass killing and expulsion from their homeland.
Thus, we will soon find out if Israel will be putting a genocidaire in charge of its Holocaust memorial.

Israel Unbounded by Judith Deutsch

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.

Haim Bresheeth-Zabner, in his 2020 history of the Zionist project as military violence, writes that the “pretence of an equality of claims between a militarized settler-colonial illegal administration and the indigenous population has been the mainstay of liberal Zionism, providing cover for every war crime in the book.” The claim of “enlightened occupation” is used to justify continued atrocities, allowing the perpetrators and their supporters to “smear as traitor anyone who voices the slightest criticism.” He documents a genocidal intent against Palestinians from the outset and quotes the secret orders given by the political/military leadership.

Bay residents march in support of Palestine on Dispatch Live

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.

Young Hearts for Palestine member Zaahidah Meyer said Palestine had stood with SA during apartheid and now all South Africans should stand with Palestine.
“We felt we had to do something because so many countries are making diplomatic deals with Israel and sort of ignoring the genocide that is imposed on Palestine and how people are being killed there every day, being killed for their land, something that can resonate with many South Africans.”

Questions of recognition by Ashraf Jehangir Qazi

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.

Indeed, on several occasions Pakistan has probed the possibility of normalizing relations with Israel, only to pull back for fear of reaction by its people and the reactions of its Gulf benefactors. Now these benefactors are lining up to recognize Israel for fear of Iran, and because of their existential dependence on their own benefactor, the US, which is pushing them to do so. It is only a matter of time before Saudi Arabia does so. It will expect Pakistan to follow suit.
But there are arguments against recognizing Israel. The Palestinian problem for non-Arab Muslims, including Pakistanis, is not just an Arab problem; it is much more a Muslim or Ummah issue. It is the direct outcome of Western colonialism and Western-abetted Jewish settlement, conquest and repression of a predominantly Muslim people, the majority of whom were expelled and compelled to leave their homeland, where the third holiest site for Muslims is located. All this legally fits the crime of genocide.

Palestine: Reconfiguring The Liberation Struggle by Yanis Iqbal

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 overtly Zionist ideological leaning of tech giants comes as no surprise since many of them have a history of digitally smothering Palestinians. Facebook, for instance, has used the traditional narrative of “anti-Semitism” to facilitate the removal of anti-Zionist statements. While posts expressing the anguish and hope of Palestinians are removed with a remarkable alacrity, patently xenophobic statements are left untouched. The following are some examples of posts that were not found to violate community guidelines: “Death to Palestine”, “The people in Gaza should be exterminated with insecticides” and “Every Muslim is a dead terrorist”. All these posts are grotesquely saturated with sentiments of murderous violence, genocide and outright hatred. Nevertheless, Facebook does not find anything wrong with these posts and considers it morally correct to annihilate Palestinians.

The UN dismisses Palestinian activism to protect Israel by Ramona Wadi

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.

One point raised by the Palestinian and civil society organisations was to relaunch the UN Special Committee Against Apartheid, which was established in 1962 through UN Resolution 1761 in response to South Africa’s apartheid regime. Like other terms, however, including genocide, the UN does not apply the same measures to entities such as Israel, which it has taken upon itself to protect at all costs.
