Jewish survivors and descendents of survivors of Nazi genocide unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza

IJAN–As Jewish survivors and descendents of survivors of the Nazi genocide we unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza and the ongoing occupation and colonization of historic Palestine. We further condemn the United States for providing Israel with the funding to carry out the attack, and Western states more generally for using their diplomatic muscle to protect Israel from condemnation. Genocide begins with the silence of the world. dn


This is what Palestine needs

Samer Jaber–The Israeli forces should withdraw from Palestinian territories occupied in 1967 so the UN can take over. . . . The framework of the confrontation has not changed and Israel will continue to sustain its occupation. The Palestinian side is defending itself and longing for the end of the occupation and self-determination. The so-called peace process of the last two decades has provided a cover for Israel to maintain the status quo, the occupation and continued Palestinian displacement. dn

Noam Chomsky on Democracy Now

Democracy Now–Hideous. Sadistic. Vicious. Murderous. That is how Noam Chomsky describes Israel’s 29-day offensive in Gaza that killed nearly 1,900 people and left almost 10,000 people injured. dn

Hadar Goldin and the Hannibal Directive

Ruth Margalit – The New Yorker “Just what those circumstances were began to filter out early this week, and they attest to deep contradictions in the Israeli military—and in Israeli culture at large.” ca

ISIS Is About to Destroy Bilbical History in Iraq

Christopher Dickey – The Daily Beast “Indeed, museum curators and staff were no better prepared than any other part of the Iraqi government. They could have learned from al-Baghdadi’s operations in neighboring Syria that a major source of revenue for his insurgency has been the sale of looted antiquities on the black market. As reported in The Guardian, a windfall of intelligence just before Mosul fell revealed that al-Baghdadi had accumulated a $2 billion war chest, in part by selling off ancient artifacts from captured Syrian sites. But the Iraqi officials concerned with antiquities said the Iraqi intelligence officers privy to that information have not shared it with them.” ca

Israel Acts to Head Off War Crime Claims

Alternative Information Center – IMEMC “According to the The New York Post, during a meeting on Wednesday with members of Congress who are visiting Israel as guests of AIPAC, Netanyahu urged the American representatives to assist Israeli officials who wish to avoid trial by the International Criminal Court in The Hague.The members of Congress heard the latest from the prime minister regarding the tenuous Gaza ceasefire, as well as Jerusalem’s strained relations with the Obama administration.” ca

Israel Orders Halt on Palestinian Home Construction near Bethlehem

Chris Carlson – IMEMC “Israeli forces have ordered several Palestinians working on their houses in the village of al-Khader, to the south of Bethlehem, to stop construction, under the pretext of “building without a permit”, according to local mayor, Tawfiq Salah.Mr. Salah said, according to WAFA Palestinian News Agency, that Israeli forces (along with staff from “civil administration”) served land owners with notices ordering them to stop work, giving the owners until September to either straighten out their legal status or be held legally accountable.” ca

West Bank uprisings dampened by PA

Ahmad Azem – Al Monitor “It should be noted that young Palestinians have started to develop a new type of confrontation in the villages near the settlements, or at checkpoints. They are starting to cut off roads and prevent Israeli vehicles from passing while the Israeli army watches from afar. Al-Monitor has witnessed such events in the village of Al-Eizariya, near the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim and Jerusalem. Yet at times, the army would directly intervene as it did in Beit Hanina and Shuafat. This raises the question: To what extent will this situation develop?” ca
