And you, Mr. Klikauer, you’ve authored over 750 articles, most of which deal/dealt with Nazi Germany, its virulent hatred, its systemic genocidal practices, its ideology of racial superiority, its dastardly evil, and its disregard for human life, an ideology that led to the horrific crematoriums. Do you not see many of these parallels spawning and festering in Israeli society as it conducts its incremental genocide?

A blue, bullet proof PRESS vest and a sniper-shot to the head, just below the helmet line: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

A funeral for a nationally beloved journalist murdered by a colonial regime that is overrun by Zionist occupation forces who beat pallbearers and nearly overturn the coffin completely: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

International inaction at a fascist colonial ethno-state that slaughters Indigenous people at will, at random, and for nothing more or less than the “crime” of existing: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

Contrasting the vivacity of those taking to the streets with the dead-end of capitalist social media, Samidoun and Nai’s songs were censored by Youtube. But despite everything, a century of cultural genocide had failed to erase and silence the people.

Indeed, whatever the sins of the Ukrainian political elites may have committed in the past, the sympathy for the common people of Ukraine should not waver and neither should the Western forces be spared of their hypocrisy and double standards when dealing with genocidal Israel and hegemonic US.

If Even Emma Watson Says Free Palestine, We’re Winning by Rivkah Brown

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.

Wheeler notes that the invisible cordon between Israeli apartheid and other political causes is wearing thin, a trend he attributes in part to social media. “As […] previous editorial controls have been lifted,” he says, “celebrities have become more confident that they can engage in the Israel–Palestine dispute.” Wheeler wrote this in 2014, shortly after the last but one Israeli war on Gaza. It was a period when many celebrities stood with Palestine – including, importantly, a coalition of the world’s sexiest Spaniards. Yet this outpouring of solidarity was followed by an equal deluge of apologies, as Israel’s supporters successfully framed the celebrities’ use of the term “genocide” as antisemitic (rather than, as scholars of international human rights law have frequently argued, accurate). These celebrities learned the hard way why their peers had been silent.

Why Palestinian activists believe Jordanian film Amira fabricated the reality of prison ‘sperm smuggling’ by Maryam Elsaieh

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.

Abo Fahmi says that the whole process of freeing the sperm from prison is “reviving the soul of resistance for the prisoner and his family”. He says that “ending the bloodline does not just apply to the prisoner – it affects all Palestinians, and infringes their human rights. It is genocide.”

It’s time to decolonise Thanksgiving by Layla Darwish

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.

Our people can relate to the genocide committed against Native Americans who, like Palestinians, coveted their land until it was stolen from them. No group was more familiar with the fertile land in America than its indigenous people, who taught the white European colonists how to successfully harvest it. These colonialists in turn enslaved the Natives, and subsequently brought black slaves from West Africa to further “develop” the land and the country. This process is quite similar to the one where Jewish refugees (at first) came to Arab Palestine from Europe and were taught by indigenous Palestinians how to cultivate the land in the Mediterranean (something European Jews were not accustomed to). Palestinians enthusiastically welcomed Jewish refugees and helped them settle, until Palestinians were ultimately betrayed by the Zionist Movement. This resulted in genocide, with many Palestinian families murdered and led to the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes (and for many the forced migration from the region), and eventually the confiscation of Palestinian land which is still occurring today. This entire process in Palestine is a systematic colonisation as it was for the Native Americans.

This whole mentality of “get over it”, “move on”, that’s prevalent in so-called “Canada”, and anywhere in the world where there’s indigenous people who want justice. And so for me, you know, it’s the same thing with Palestine. I know that it’s a really tricky circumstance, and there’s people from the other side of the fence that have different views about what’s going on over there, but for me there’s genocidal activity going on, on those people. And so if there’s any way that I can support that in any shape or form, I’m always ready to do that.
