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.”

The Movement for Black Lives, the Palestinian Struggle, and a Creeping Genocide by Zeina Azzam

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.

Perhaps the most hard-hitting sentence in this section of the M4BL platform is, “The US justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliance with Israel and is complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people.”.. Many American mainstream Jewish organizations have seized on the sobering term “genocide,” indignantly refusing to acknowledge its applicability to the Palestinian situation. Some of them ask if its use makes the platform anti-Semitic or anti-Israel. In response, others maintain that Israel’s policies toward the Palestinian population should be seen for what they are: racist, discriminatory, and destructive with the aim of destroying Palestinian culture and identity—and ultimately, large numbers of the Palestinian population.

Killing Fields: Are Israeli Forces Preparing For Another Genocidal Massacre of Palestinians? by 21st Century Wire

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.

Many now believe that the IDF are preparing to mount one of their biggest killing sprees since last year’s genocidal cull in Gaza. The moralists and human rights community in Washington DC seem all too willing to see history repeat itself, again. Despite the scale of the violence against civilians last year, the West effectively turned a blind eye to Israel’s role during its decidedly vicious incursion, where the IDF slaughtered nearly 2,200 Palestinians and injured many thousands of others, as well as destroying 10,000 homes and severely damaging another 30,000.

Roundtable on Anti-Blackness and Black-Palestinian Solidarity by Jadaliyya

I have felt for a long time that there is a need for a strong theological counter-offensive, originating in the African American community, against Christian Zionism.  It must challenge a certain ‘reading’ of the Bible, including suggestions that could lead certain people to believe that genocide against the Palestinians is somehow legitimate.
