At a time when Palestinians are being killed and injured daily by Israel, harassed and brutalised as they mourn, barred from flying their flag, the govt approves an ultra nationalist incendiary march that will require further restriction of their movement. haaretz.com/israel-news/.pre…

The fact that the discourse in Israel is consumed with whether or not it’s ok for Palestinians to wave their own flag and writer it’s grounds for brutalizing them is a good indication of just how much the Israeli body politic denies their existence

This is great and all, but how about we talk about Palestinian collective political rights to self determination, representation, human rights. haaretz.com/opinion/editoria…

Today, I introduced a resolution recognizing the Nakba (catastrophe), where 400 Palestinian towns and villages were destroyed, over 700,000 Palestinians uprooted from their homes, and made refugees.

Another violent day in Jerusalem: Dozens of Palestinians arrested and many injured tonight during funeral of Palestinian who died from wounds at Al Aqsa in yet another disputed Palestinian fatality: Israel claims he fell (seems highly unlikely) and Palestinians say he was shot
עשרות עצורים עם הפנים לקיר בתחנה בצאלח א-דין. 37 פצועים מתוכם, ע"פ הפלסטינים, לפחות אחד במצב קשה.

Palestine on the agenda of EU foreign ministers meeting today. Topic? #ShireenAbuAkleh? New settlement units? #MasaferYatta expulsion threat? Jerusalem? No. Again the continued blockage of EU financial aid due to Commissioner Varhelyi's political game around Palest. textbooks.

Shireen Abu Akleh’s brother Anton also told @aboxerman1 : “I ask the Israeli people to see this as an opportunity for peace. The Palestinian people wants peace, aims for peace. This feeling should be shared.”

In many of these stories, Israel is responsible for the killing but denied responsibility and was not held accountable. In Shireen Abu Akleh’s case, IDF spox actually said “They’re armed with cameras, if you’ll permit me to say so.” washingtonpost.com/world/202…

The Israeli army and media cooperated well together today to “break” this story from 2018, likely in order to completely divert attention from the abomination of the last few days haaretz.com/israel-news/.pre…

“The manifesto cites George Soros… as ‘majorly responsible for the destruction of our White culture.’ It also says that Jews are driving the rise of critical race theory.”
The man charged with killing 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket Saturday allegedly was motivated by a conspiracy theory that has spurred recent deadly attacks on Jews, among others. About Jews, he allegedly wrote, "They can be dealt with in time." jta.org/2022/05/15/united-st…

I've been thinking about #ShireenAbuAkleh's killing and Israel's denial, saying 'we don't know for sure who shot her'. To me, that theory doesn't add up, when looking at the videos and evidence we have. One section of the Shireen vid in particular, to me, shows this. 🧵 1/19
