THORNTON: Media silence does not necessitate yours on The Vanderbilt Hustler

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.

“I think Americans largely get it,” the former Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu told us in 2014. “They know who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.” The ways in which we are presented information prompts us to “get it.” This is not to say there isn’t biased reporting that exists in the opposing favor, because there is, but it would be a lie to say it’s frequent or comparable. We get, as past presidents of the United States have reminded us, that Israel is a shining democracy, despite Palestinian and Arab second-class citizenship. We get that this alliance withstands violent apartheid and military regime. We get discriminatory laws, reminiscent of American Jim Crow, and mass Palestinian incarceration. We get ethnic cleansingimperialist blockade and systemic economic strain. We get periodic bombing. Get massacres. Get slow-motion genocide. We get it without question and without concern, and most importantly, get it while being too stupid to understand such a complicated conflict.

Protest outside White House as Israeli PM seeks assurance of U.S. support for apartheid on Liberation News

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.

Noting that Biden and Bennett were meeting to solidify their ties, she said: “It is further proof — as if more is needed — that the peace process has always and will continue to be a sham. It is evidence that we as Palestinians were never meant to have a say in our future, but are instead expected to take some sort of deal handed to us from above … When we resist as a people, Biden’s response is to invite our oppressor into his home. He claims progressive values, but what is progressive about genocide? After the Zionist regime dropped bombs on Gaza for 11 days straight, Biden sent an extra $735 million in weapons from Boeing to the Zionist regime.”

Marching in a broad circle around the White House grounds, the protesters chanted, “Bennett, Bennet you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

US organizations demand Tampa General Hospital to end partnership with Israeli business on WAFA 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.

The depoliticization of healthcare as a site of neutrality showcases the continuous refusal to acknowledge health disparities that are caused by structural harms. The structures of colonialism, militarization, and capitalism perpetuate an erasure of an entire ethnicity in which this case are the Palestinians in the face of Israeli aggression. A statement that isn’t a hyperbole, or a belittlement but a well-documented fact by multiple international human rights organizations. Can Tampa General Hospital advocate for the advancement of health in its community, while it invests in the genocide and displacement of besieged Palestinians?

Actions demand NY close groups backing settler genocide in Palestine by Liberation News

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 whole world recoiled at the May media footage of racist Israeli settlers threatening to kill and beating up Palestinian people in order to steal their homes in the Sheik Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. The press, however, did not point out  many of these arch-racist settlers are actually Americans with dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship, whose real “home” is Long Island. Nor was it explained that the U.S. and state governments are complicit in these crimes because they allow, and even give tax exempt status to organizations which mobilize these home-grown racists for ethnic cleansing and genocide in occupied Palestine.

Al-Awda NY exposes settler Yaakov Fauci outside his Long Island home, demands closure of New York groups promoting colonization, ethnic cleansing, and genocide in Palestine on Al-Awda NY

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.

Al-Awda NY took a message of justice and accountability to the home of notorious Long Island extremist Zionist settler Justin “Yaakov” Fauci. Fauci moved from New York to invade and steal Palestinian lands including the Al-Kurd family home and became notorious for publicly admitting his crime when he stated, “If I don’t steal it, someone else is gonna” as he invaded the Palestinian home.

“It is a violation of U.S. federal law for Americans to engage in war crimes and genocide, it is shocking that there is impunity for such open acts of violence, and it is outrageous that New York State actively shelters, promotes and celebrates such violence, which is itself also a crime,” said attorney Lamis Deek.

Community members host vigil for lives lost in Gaza on The Michigan Daily

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.

[LSA junior Salma Hamamy, one of the organizers of the vigil] talked about the difficulties of being a Palestinian student at the University because of its support for Israel. 

“I’m exhausted having to argue with people for basic human rights,” Hamamy said. “I’m exhausted from people trying to minimize and deny the ethnic genocide placed onto the Palestinian people, and Israeli sanctioned apartheid. I’m overall exhausted from witnessing Palestinian bodies pile up in numbers, only for Zionists to then later try to justify us being murdered, and for the University of Michigan to remain silent. In, neglecting their Palestinian students and trying to frame this as a ‘conflict’ when it is colonialism, the University has given us nothing but empty words.”

NYC Peaceful Protest For Palestine In Manhattan by Farrah Sarafa

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 protest for Palestine in Manhattan this past month was one of a kind. Erected in wake of ongoing displacements, settlement expansions, and militarized upsurged in East Jerusalem, Palestinian voices have risen to the surface. Loud and clear, “Free Free Palestine, from the River to the Sea,” descendants of grandparents dispossessed of their land, freedom, and integrities are shouting out against Israeli apartheid and genocide.

Palestinian Nakba Day Commemorated in DC Amid Israeli Aggression on The DC Post

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.

DC-based political analyst and policy advisor Mohammed Khader, who attended the rally, calls the Nakba “one of the largest planned ethnic cleansings in modern history.”

“For decades, Palestinians have been dehumanized under apartheid and forcibly displaced from their land by US-funded efforts,” Khader told The DC Post. “As a Palestinian, I attended the rally to join thousands of Palestinians, along with those in solidarity with Palestine, in the streets of DC to demand the US Government sanction Israel for their crimes against humanity, stand against the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and call for an end to the ongoing Nakba, which has been sustained under Israeli apartheid and the occupation of Palestine.”

Describing President Joe Biden’s silence as “extremely loud” for not openly calling for a ceasefire, Khader likened the US government’s current stance to “the same misguided approach taken during the Rwandan Genocide, where US officials explicitly refused to label it a genocide because it meant they would be required to act. Like what Reagan was to South Africa, what Clinton was to Rwanda, and what the US was to Cambodia.”
