  • Sanders Picks Two BDS Supporters For DNC Platform Committee

    05/24/2016 1:46:24 PM PDT · by ErikJohnsky · 8 replies
    Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has tapped two major backers of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to be members of the DNC platform committee after reports emerged that Sanders wants to revamp the platform to highlight the issue of Palestinian rights. Sanders picked James Zogby, president of the Arab-American Institute in Washington, and Cornel West, a philosopher and anti-Israel activist, to fill two of his five slots on the 15-member platform as part of his plans to revise the Democratic Partys stance on relations with Israel. West is a vociferous critic of Israel who has called the Gaza Strip...

    Perpetrator As Victim: No End To A Self-Inflicted "Tragedy" What "Nakba" commemorations really disclose. May 16, 2016 Daniel Mandel Yesterday, May 15, Palestinians and their supporters, as they have done increasingly over recent years, marked the nakba (Arabic for catastrophe) the day 68 years ago that Israel came into existence upon the expiry of British rule under a League of Nations mandate. That juxtaposition of Israel and nakba isnt accidental. Were meant to understand that Israels creation caused the displacement of hundreds of thousand of Palestinian Arabs.

    Bernie Sanders wants to make Palestinian rights more of a priority in the Democratic Party platform, according to a report. The Washington Post reported on Friday that Sanders, the Vermont Independent Senator seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, wants to see changes to a platform to better reflect Palestinian aspirations for statehood. Sanders, the only Jewish candidate to ever have won major party nominating contests, has throughout the campaign defended Israels right to security, but also has called for an end to settlement expansion, and has criticized what he has said has been Israels disproportionate response to Palestinian terrorism. His grasp...

    The whole "Palestinian" identity is a parasitic entity that can only exist in terms related to its hostility to the indigenous Jewish inhabitants. The desperate attempts to appropriate Jewish identity has now led Fatah, the core terrorist organization behind the "Palestinian" state to claim that the Jewish Star of David is really an Islamic symbol. This comes from the official Facebook page of Fatah which claims that the Star of David was used in Arab-Islamic architecture hundreds of years before the rebirth of the State of Israel. Considering that the symbol dates back to the House of David, thousands of...

In his speech, he called on the international community to get involved in order to "defend" the Arab residents of Jerusalem who are dealing with "illegal" activities from Israel "that oppose international law and human rights." Hamdallah's call to take action against Israel urged international pressure so as to end the "occupation" and establish an independent Palestinian state along the 1949 Armistice lines,...

    The United States will endorse a tougher tone with Israel in an upcoming international report that takes the Jewish state to task over settlements, demolitions and property seizures on land the Palestinians claim for a future state, diplomats told The Associated Press. The U.S. and its fellow Mideast mediators also will chastise Palestinian leaders for failing to rein in anti-Israeli violence. But the diplomats involved in drafting the document said its primary focus will be a surge of construction in Jewish housing in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

We would like to see an international force to separate between us and the Israeli occupying authorities, Mansour said. Such a step is not feasible at this time, so it is possible for the UNSC to take a smaller step to help the Palestinians, he said. Now the security council is beginning the discussion, Mansour told reporters. The Palestinians have persistently called for the UNSC to hold a...

After this warning stage, advises the Mufti, men should "separate" from their wives until they change their behavior. If the two do not reconcile, however, next "comes the hitting."

    A senior British MP has compared a violent anti-Israel riot at a London university last week to kristallnacht, as condemnation of the violence carried out by pro-Palestinian activists continues to mount. In an interview with Sky News on Sunday morning, Sir Eric Pickles - a former minister who now serves as the United Kingdom's Special Envoy for post-Holocaust issues - likened the incident, in which windows were smashed and at least one Jewish student was physically assaulted, to the Nazi pogrom in which anti-Semitic thugs ransacked Jewish-owned synagogues, shops and other establishments in Germany. ...

    It is a common misconception that around 650,000 Palestinian refugees were created because of fighting that took place in 1948. But a closer look at both the population data and statements made by UN officials at the time suggest that the true figure is much lower, possibly as low as 270,000. The conventional figure of 650,000 cannot be true for more than one reason. Firstly, there were fewer than 660,000 Arabs living in the part of Palestine that eventually became Israel; and secondly, UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency), either through incompetence or deliberate manipulation, handed out multiple...

    US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro voiced a particularly sharp attack against Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria on Monday, accusing Israeli authorities of holding them to different standards of law.

Shapiro condemned two brutal stabbing attacks on Sunday and Monday as "barbaric acts of terrorism," before launching into a critique of Israel's policies concerning the communities in Judea-Samaria. "We are concerned and perplexed by Israel's strategy on settlements," Shapiro stated. "This government and previous Israeli governments have repeatedly...
