Beersheba University rejects political pressure by British donorLidar Garve-Lazi - Jerusalem Post - British businessman Michael Gross, a longstanding member of the Beersheba university’s board of governors, decided to withhold a $1 million donation - due to his objection to the university holding an academic conference on "“Whistle-blowing throughout the ages". Among other featured speakers are Yuli Novak of the "Breaking The Silence" movement which came under fire for its publication of soldiers` testimonies from the Occupied Territories. In response the university informed Mr. Gross that the conference will take place as scheduled, since "The role of academia is to research and study past and current trends, and on the basis of that research to promote a critical discourse that asks questions and deepens our knowledge about historical, cultural and scientific issues". Further, the university returned to Gross a 100,000 donation he already made and told him he is free to resign from its board of governors. [ak] 31/5/2016
NORTH AMERICA NAKBA TOUR: THE EXILED PALESTINIANSJewish Voice for Peace et al--On May 14, 1948, as Zionist leader David Ben Gurion was proclaiming a Jewish state in Palestine, his troops drove out the inhabitants of the ancient Palestinian town of al-Zeeb. 18-year-old Mariam Fathalla was one of them.

The Abnormal BoxCO Tair Kaminer - blog from inside the military prison - Apparently, if I went to the Mental Health Office, I would get released fairly quickly, because that would silence the noise that I am making and would, more importantly, put me in the little square where they want to put me so they can show the world where I actually belong. But this fight is too important to me to agree to make the army`s life so easy. There is another way to get to the "abnormal box" and receive an exemption. A conscientious exemption. That is the exemption that I would like to receive, because after all it is my conscience that is not allowing me to serve in the army. So what`s the problem? 24/5/2016

Amid Israeli Independence Day Celebrations, Thousands of Arabs Rally to Mark Nakba Jack Khoury - Haaretz - “For the Palestinians, the Nabka isn’t just a historical event, but a personal wound in the heart of every refugee and displaced person,” said Mohammed Barakeh, head of the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, at the event. “People didn’t flee, as some claim, but were uprooted.

Letter to American Marine whose shirt CO Tair Kaminer is wearingTair Kaminer - It is not safe here. For anyone. And the reason that this is connected to you is that your government is very involved. The taxes you pay support these wars, meaning, we receive a "security" budget, and in Israel, the meaning of "security" is really "occupation", a siege and closure of the Palestinian population. For the security of Israelis, of course. 10/5/2016
