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.

Protest outside White House as Israeli PM seeks assurance of U.S. support for apartheid on 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.

Noting that Biden and Bennett were meeting to solidify their ties, she said: “It is further proof — as if more is needed — that the peace process has always and will continue to be a sham. It is evidence that we as Palestinians were never meant to have a say in our future, but are instead expected to take some sort of deal handed to us from above … When we resist as a people, Biden’s response is to invite our oppressor into his home. He claims progressive values, but what is progressive about genocide? After the Zionist regime dropped bombs on Gaza for 11 days straight, Biden sent an extra $735 million in weapons from Boeing to the Zionist regime.”

Marching in a broad circle around the White House grounds, the protesters chanted, “Bennett, Bennet you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

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?

This Game Set in the Gaza Strip Doesn’t Let You Win on WIRED

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.

That empathy that games generate makes them a “more engaging way to share messages, feelings, and experiences with everyone,” he says. But how does this work in Liyla, where the events being shared are the horrors of war, occupation, and genocide? “I had to break the rules of game design,” Abueideh admitted.

In one instance, for example, the game presents you with a choice. After barely surviving bombings and shootings, you make it to the beach. There, you encounter four boys playing football. Your daughter, Liyla, asks you if she can go offer the kids to join both of you. Most of the players choose for Liyla to try and save the kids, but that leads to the death of both your daughter and the boys, who are shot and killed by naval fire.

And then, it’s game over.

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…

SFSS BDS motion sees support from Palestinian and Jewish students and opposition from Hillel on The Peak

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.

On May 19, the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) motion passed a motion in solidarity with Palestinian students. It discusses Israel and its acts of violence against Palestinians, such as attacks on residential grounds and mosques. SFSS’ statement included a call to action to “initiate, support, and amplify” Palestinian calls to join BDS campaigns… Palestinian student Lara Radwan said, “Happy to see the SFSS stand on the right side of history as they stop letting businesses profit off of genocide and ethnic cleansing. We all play a part in making a change, and glad to see the SFSS take theirs.”

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.
