Following Israel’s latest massacre in Gaza: It’s high time for the UN to act to dismantle apartheid by the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)

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.

It is crucial to remember that Israel’s latest massacre took place in the context of the criminal siege of Gaza. Already in its 15th year, the siege is older than most of the children murdered in Israel’s repeated massacres there since 2008. The siege deprives over two million Palestinians, the majority of them children, of basic necessities, including clean water, jobs, reliable electric power, as well as adequate housing, healthcare, and education. As a result, morbidity, mortality (especially infant mortality), stunted growth, and poverty rates have risen sharply, reducing the lives of people there to hell. Israel’s siege of Gaza is condemned by human rights experts as a crime against humanity, while activists and some historians have termed it, “incremental genocide”… The utter failure of the International Criminal Court and the United Nations, including the General Assembly, to hold Israel accountable for its prolonged and continued crimes against humanity makes them also key culprits in Israel’s recent massacre in Gaza.

A colonized Palestine isn’t the answer to the world’s guilt byTareq Baconi

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.

For visitors who do not know this reality, they will walk through a museum curated to document the horrific crime of the Holocaust, onto a viewing deck at the end of the permanent exhibit which looks out onto green fields, without ever realizing that they are gazing at bloody grounds. This erasure of the Palestinian catastrophe in a space where the Holocaust is memorialized is a crude trivialization of the lessons of that genocide. 
… For over a century, we Palestinians have been struggling against Zionism, a racist settler colonial movement intent on our elimination.

“They’ve been through years and years of genocide and I think it’s really good for us as a school to be protesting for Palestine, because they don’t really get a lot of air, like nobody really knows what’s going on in Palestine.”

CUNY Law faculty, several law orgs, endorse student’s BDS resolution against Israel on The Arab American 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.

Law school faculty at a major university in New York has joined the ranks of educational and professional organizations supporting the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) and recognition of Palestinian rights… The resolution calls for a boycott of Israeli apartheid government and Israeli companies that take advantage of and support Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, thereby systematically ending long standing relationships between major U.S. colleges like CUNY and those occupation entities. In doing so, the resolution calls out CUNY’s complicity “in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through its investments in and contracts with companies profiting off of Israeli war crimes.”

Letter to the Editor: The University is denying the genocide of Palestinians on The Rocky Mountain Collegian

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 Zionist insistence that Israel is the universal embodiment of a Jewish desire for political power leaves Jews around the world on the hook for the violence inflicted upon the Palestinian people; if anything, this position is antisemitic. It is essential to understand that downplaying genocide as Zionists do is an effectually denialist position. In a few words: The University is denying genocide.

Biden Calls Out Russia For ‘Genocide’ But Not Israel with Noura Erakat on AJ+

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 ease with which the United States can look at Russia’s operation and call it genocidal, and the way in which it’s not addressed at all in Palestine is also indicative, not merely of a double standard, but a civilisational standard that reflects, again, Eurocentrism.”

Palestine global mental health network: Free Ahmad Mansarah Campaign with Tamari Kitossa

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.

Ahmad Manasarah does not exist in isolation from the hundreds of Palestinian children taken captive each year by the Israeli police and military forces, as the data gathered by the Defence for Children Palestine attests. In the process not only an untold number are physically maimed, but also, almost without exception, Palestinian children are psychologically tortured, with menticide being the ultimate aim of the killing of the mind. This is nothing short of genocide, of which mass incarceration of children is but one of the links in the chain of destruction, whose ultimate aim is to destroy a people. [min. 1:03:34]

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.

“What is happening in Palestine is not complicated; it’s settler colonialism and ethnic cleansing. Swipe to learn about myths perpetuated by the mainstream media who has continuously worked to conceal Israel’s ongoing genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestine by saying it’s a two-sided conflict, dreaming Palestinian resistance as terrorism and normalizing the state of Israel.”
