Free Palestine: An Interview with Akram Salhab on Tribune

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.

There’s this extreme, violent’ and urgent situation that Israel is undertaking. A renewed massacre in Gaza, and god knows what inside 48 and Jerusalem. The other day we saw 2-300 settlers march into Sheikh Jarrah, smashing up houses, smashing up shops, smashing up cars. Just going on an absolute rampage. This has been happening everywhere. It’s not an exaggeration to say that there’s definitely a potentially genocidal situation on our hands.

In the Midst of Destruction – From Jerusalem to Gaza: Palestine Speaks // Mohammad al-Kurd on Palestine Deep Dive

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.

Of course they’re loosing control. Of course, because often times what happens is that they isolate Gaza, and the isolate the narrative of Gaza, and- if I’m allowed to cuss- I think people are finally calling bullshit on this. The myth of “self defence”, the myth of “Hamas rockets”. Those myths that they use to justify a literal genocide. A reoccurring annual genocidal launch of warfare on Gaza, is see-through nowadays. And we’re seeing this because of social media, we’re seeing that people no longer accept this.

Shohini Ghosh on Love Queer Cinema. Hate Apartheid. hosted by Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement

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 is known across the world, the government of Israel has, over the decades, carried out systematic and genocidal violence against the people of Palestine, whose land they illegally occupy. The Israeli government has established a regime that is brazenly discriminatory, majoritarian, racist, and Islamophobic. I see such an opposition to be urgent, because people and governments across the world are beginning to find acceptable the absolute violation of the rights and liberties of certain citizens, and the decimation of social and cultural fabrics…

How Israel’s Erasure of Palestinian History Perpetuates Occupation on The Real News Network

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 Israeli academia is not a place where freedom of expression is being respected- and much more than that- this is a place that’s being complacent in the face of attempts for a culturcide and the erasure of collective memory, and evidence of the crimes committed in 1948… not only on this, because this particular episode is just a symptom of the overall campaign of Israel throughout the years, to not only erase Palestine and the Palestinians physically, but also to wipe them out, or expunge them, from historical memory and from history.

The Legal Battle for Justice Against Israeli Settlers and Their American Financiers on Washington Report On Middle East Affairs

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.

He filed a lawsuit initially dismissed by the District Court here in DC. But it was overturned by the Court of Appeals here in DC. And that lawsuit seeks $1 billion in damages from those who enabled the settlements and the settlers to commit war crimes, including genocide, ethnic cleansing and denationalization.
The court reasoned that, based on the U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, genocide has a legal, rather than a political, definition. All of the other counts [in the lawsuit] were dismissed as being political, not legal. So that means the case is going back to District Court and there will be litigation on whether Israeli settlers are committing genocide, which is a huge breakthrough.
