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.

Palestinian Labour, Unconquered by Salvage Editorial Collective

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.

When Israel conquered Gaza and the West Bank in 1967, one of their first moves was to ban the Palestinian flag and to ban books evoking Palestine’s existence. The attempted eradication of historical memory is part of a process that Israeli historian Baruch Kimmerling once called ‘politicide’. To destroy the idea of Palestine need not entail the physical destruction of the Palestinians. However, as the increasingly overt calls for genocide from Israeli politicians suggest, it need not entail their survival either.

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?

Has AU Declared War On Member States by Granting Israel ‘Observer Status’? by Iqbal Jassat

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.

While the controversy rages on, it is important to remind AU member states to be mindful of their responsibility to adhere to various international conventions which Israel is in violation of. As a serial perpetrator, the Zionist entity is not only guilty of the crime of Apartheid; it stands accused of war crimes and incremental genocide.
International humanitarian law of occupation contains a prohibition against deporting or transferring parts of the civilian population of the Occupying Power into Occupied Territory. Such illegal transfers carried out by Israel are to alter the demographic composition of the population of the occupied territory…

How Human Rights Watch favors Israel by Maureen Clare Murphy

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 very use of the phrase “security assistance” concerning Israel’s incremental genocide in Gaza reveals Human Rights Watch’s inherent bias… “Security forces” is a wholly inappropriate term for personnel tasked with quelling protest and enforcing discriminatory and illegally applied Israeli domestic law in occupied territory so that Palestinians may be removed and replaced with Jewish settlers. Human Rights Watch does not use the language of “security” in relation to armed groups in Gaza, home to two million stateless Palestinians, two-thirds of whom are refugees… In its forthcoming report on rocket fire from Gaza, Human Rights Watch is unlikely to recommend how stateless refugees can defend themselves without any meaningful accountability measures imposed on Israel.

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.

OP-ED: The Rohingya and Palestinian crises, compared by Ahtaram Shine

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.

As a Rohingya refugee, I have found that our people have much in common with Palestinians. Both populations have been persecuted, repeatedly displaced, denied citizenship, and now subjected to genocide and ethnic cleansing. Both Israelis and Myanmar Buddhists have the same goal — to drive them out of these countries. All too often, killing and torture have occurred in addition to land grabs.

‘Block the Boat’ hits New Jersey on Mondoweiss

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 situation in Palestine remains very urgent so we really need to build on the momentum from the increased solidarity we see and move it toward action that is really going to have an impact on the occupation, on apartheid. Things like the ZIM actions, like labor divesting from Israeli society. We need to be consistent in saying Palestinians have the right to defend themselves from this ongoing genocide from the Israeli state.
