Resisting Palestinian Erasure in Jerusalem with Jalal Abukhater on Rethinking Palestine

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 felt like a state sponsored attack. And that’s what happened in that march. They chose to let this happen. The Israelis knew that there will be genocidal chants, there would be call for “death for arabs”. I heard “death for arabs” being screamed at multiple occasions… There is a collusion that we saw on that day. There is collusion between the state of Israel, its armed forces, and those extremists, which if it’s like 70,000 people in the streets raising the Israeli flag and yelling “death to arabs”, those are not extremists, those are not the fringes. It’s 70,000  settlers, representing the Israeli state, and the Israeli state misrepresented by those who allow this to happen, who deployed 300 Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem to protect those people, to allow their violence continue. And all the evidence we have, all the videos we have; no arrests were made. Any Palestinian who dared to resist, who dared to raise a Palestinian flag in their face, got attacked, got shot. Dozens, even 70 or 80, got arrested, many were hospitalised, the property damage is in millions I believe. It just looked like a day from the movie “The Purge”. If you’re a jewish settler you’re allowed to be violent against Palestinian subjects, and you get scot-free, just on this day. That’s what it felt like.

“But, you know, corona wasn’t the real virus here. You know what the real virus is? Arabs.”

Motti, in his mid-40s, wearing shorts and bare-headed, puts down his phone and looks up.

“Yes, you have that right. You know, I think that the police would come after me if they knew what I was thinking. They are a virus and they need to be rounded up and put in extermination camps. There’s no way that we’re going to be able to live together. It’s us or them.”

Israeli lawmaker warns Palestinians of another ‘Nakba’ if they fly Palestinian flag by Jonathan Ofir

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.

A member of the Israeli parliament, Israel Katz, warned Palestinians of another “Nakba” if they fly the Palestinian flag. The Likud lawmaker put up a video on his twitter this morning featuring him speaking at the parliament, with the message:

“Yesterday I warned the Arab students, who are flying Palestine flags at universities: Remember 48. Remember our independence war and your Nakba, don’t stretch the rope too much. […] If you don’t calm down we’ll teach you a lesson that won’t be forgotten.

Ep. 56 – Guerrilla Diplomacy with Noura Erakat on The Palestine Pod

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 PLO historically, according to Paul Chamberlain, did much of what the Vietnamese did, which was fight while talking. They should be fighting and talking at the same time. Instead we’ve been so committed- the leadership, not us, but the official leadership- has been so committed to just talking and proving politeness, that were now in a place where Israelis can all out say- deny the Nakba…
– Or say they’ll bring a second one.
They’re fine with that. They can use the language of genocide and are not held to account.

Israel’s Bennett urges citizens to carry guns, says ‘this is the time’ on Middle East Eye

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.

Bennett said in a video statement from his home on Wednesday where he is quarantined after testing positive for Covid-19. “What is expected of you, Israeli citizens? Vigilance and responsibility. Whoever has a gun licence, this is the time to carry a gun. We are also currently evaluating a larger framework to involve civilian volunteers who want to help and be of assistance.”

… Meanwhile, requests for arms purchases by Israeli citizens have been on the rise… According to data from the ministry of public security, requests increased three and a half times from the same period last year… More than a thousand gun purchase applications have been submitted since the beginning of March, and the number of applications has doubled in the past two weeks. 

… Late on Tuesday, Uzi Dayan, a former Israeli army general and member of Israel’s parliament, warned the Palestinians of another Nakba. “The thing we need to tell the Arab community, even those who didn’t participate in the attacks, is to be careful,” he said. “If we reach a civil war situation, things will end in one word and a situation you know, which is Nakba,” he added. “This is what will happen in the end.”

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.

Israel: Knesset member calls for murder of people in mixed marriages on Middle East Eye

David Sheen, an Israeli journalist, who wrote about Pindrus’s remarks on Twitter and shared his speech, said: “Like most eliminationist lawmakers, Yitzhak Pindrus doesn’t have a Twitter account, but apparently he has a private account, because he immediately noted that his incitement to genocide all Israelis ‘who contribute to miscegenation’ was reported on that.”

The Israel hasbara machine is attempting to sanitize Naftali Bennett’s “I killed many Arabs” quote by Jonathan Ofir

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.

Israel just got its most right-wing Prime Minister ever, in the form of Naftali Bennett. We have already seen the signs that Israeli pundits were trying to sanitize his racist history, to make him a better sell than Netanyahu. But what do you do with phrases such as “I’ve killed many Arabs in my life, and there’s no problem with that”? I mean, that’s one of the singularly most racist things he’s said, it’s often quoted, and it’s not only racist but has a genocidal hint to it?

Israeli mob chants for genocide in Jerusalem by Tamara Nassar

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.

Thousands of Israeli Jewish nationalists marched through Jerusalem chanting racist and genocidal slogans against Palestinians on Tuesday. This was part of an annual “March of the Flags” by far-right Israeli Jews to celebrate Israel’s occupation and colonization of East Jerusalem. Like in previous years, the mob waving Israeli flags spewed racist and genocidal slogans against Palestinians and denigrated the Prophet Muhammad.
