Eurovision tells us everything about Europe’s ‘vision’ for Palestinians: acquiescence by Randa Abdel-Fattah

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.

That Israel is hosting Eurovision tells us everything about Europe and the western world’s “vision” for Palestinians: acquiescence. 

Accept your oppression, the theft and occupation of your land, the slow genocidal erasure of Gaza, the airstrikes and slaughter. 

Do not envisage freedom, resistance, liberation. 

Do not imagine we, the international community, will hold Israel to account for its defiance of international and human rights law.

Sun, Gays, Misogyny, and Shawarma: Eurovision promo yet another failed Israeli bid for legitimacy by Denijal Jegić

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.

Eurovision is a mere example of how Israel is desperately trying to gain legitimacy through a stubborn insistence on old myths and the almost comical exhaustion of the same talking points. Because Zionism is a modern colonial movement that is incompatible with universal human rights and international law, and because Israel does not have any moral or legal justification for the colonization of Palestine and for the genocidal maltreatment of Palestinians, the Israeli regime will continue to desperately necessitate absurd propaganda in its efforts to narrate to the outside world, and probably to itself, a modified version of history, trying to prove that it has some sort of legitimacy.

The return of Palestinian refugees is quite possible by Ahmed Abu Artema

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.

We do not deny that Jews have the right to live in safety, but why should the solution to a tragedy they faced produce a tragedy for another people? The establishing of this “safe haven”, the way it was done in 1948 and ever since, has resulted in mass ethnic cleansing and incremental genocide of Palestinians. The Palestinian people have faced one massacre after another over the past seven decades and as a result, they have no “safe haven” of their own.

DePaul professor ignites free-speech uproar with unabashed pro-Israel views by Valerie Richards

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.

His article last month declaring that Israel has a “moral right to annex all of the West Bank” has made him persona non grata on campus, the focus of student protests and a Faculty Council vote condemning his article for promoting “racism toward Arabs generally and Palestinians in particular.”
At a campus forum Tuesday on Middle East politics and academic freedom, a dozen students walked out chanting, “Jason Hill, you can’t hide, we know you want genocide,” as shown on video by Students for Justice in Palestine at DePaul.

Israeli Technion Professor, Yitzhak Birk, incites to genocide against the people of Gaza as Israel bombs for a second day in a row post by Sivan Tal

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.

Gaza is portrayed as an innocent population, captive of terrorist organisations. However, the root of the Gaza problem is population explosion, those same innocents are responsible for. It’s not from Allah and not from Hamas. UNRWA contributes to this by supplying them with food and basic health services, and in this way prevents nature from balancing excess birth rate with infant mortality. Those are the bull’s horns.

The Gaza problem is population explosion, that stems from a deadly and unsustainable combination of rat level birth rate and UN food and basic health services, preventing the high rate of infant mortality like in Africa and in animals. The responsible parties are the women of Gaza and their husbands. Those are the bull’s horns.

Why we opposed WIFI: Challenging WIFI’s complicity in state violence by Joseph Moore and Jesus Payan

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 member of WIFI leadership asserted the Israeli state routinely killing Palestinians in order to displace them from their land did not constitute genocide because the Palestinian population as a whole had not declined, due to a high fertility rate. This is totally inconsistent with any definition of the word “genocide”, either provided by a dictionary or defined by international law and deeply offensive to Palestinians who have suffered repeated attempts at ethnic cleansing by the Israeli government. 

… If the conversations that were had in the two College Council (CC) meetings are any indication of the positions that WIFI intended to promote on campus, then we ought to celebrate their proposal being denied. Williams ought not to provide a platform to groups that, when provided with first-hand testimony from Palestinian students about the violence of the occupation, attempt to redefine terms like genocide and colonialism to suit their own ends.

Trump and Netanyahu undermining our future by Lawrence Davidson

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 past that Netanyahu rejects is the one designed after World War II to criminalise behaviours such as the waging of aggressive war, genocide and apartheid. Some of these behaviours had for centuries threatened European Jews. Netanyahu, and those who voted for him, no longer identify with the suffering of their European ancestors. Israel is now a strong, aggressive, land-hungry power much like 19th century Russia and Germany. Many Israeli Jews are also, like Donald Trump’s core supporters, ethnic racists and supremacists.
