Mass Rally Against the Expulsion of Asylum Seekers 20/3/2018
Mass Rally Against the Expulsion of Asylum SeekersA.S.F. - Refugees` Rights Association - On Saturday night, March 24 at 20:00, a mass rally will be held at the Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, to oppose government plans for the large-scale expulsion of African refuges and asylum seekers. It has been shown that expelled refugees, sent to such countries as Rwanda and Uganda, are highly unwelcome there and would face further expulsion, a highly dangerous and unpredictable fate and the tangible threat of death or slavery . We call for a responsible asylum policy, the rehabilitation of the slum neighborhoods of South Tel Aviv where the mass of Africans are presently located and the integration of refugees and asylum seekers throughout the country.Israelis from all over the political spectrum and from a variety of population groups have made it clear in recent months that they oppose the expulsion of the refugees.

125 Palestinian Football Clubs to Adidas: End Sponsorship of Israeli Settlement TeamsBDS Movement News - 125 Palestinian football teams and sports associations call on Adidas to end its sponsorship of the Israel Football Association over inclusion of teams based in illegal Israeli settlements. There are six such Israeli football clubs located in such settlements, built on stolen Palestinian land, and Palestinians are not allowed to enter into them. By admitting clubs based in such settlements as full members, the Israel Football Association (IFA) has become deeply complicit in Israel’s violations of international law and Palestinian human rights. As the main international sponsor of the IFA, Adidas is lending its brand to cover up and whitewash Israel’s human rights abuses. Aside from the settlements issue, Palestinian footballers are denied the freedom of movement to attend matches, Palestinian stadiums have been bombed and destroyed, and Palestinian players are attacked and imprisoned, and some of them were killed by the Israeli army. Adidas’ sponsorship of the IFA legitimises and gives international cover to Israel’s illegal settlements and to human rights violations. Adidas already agreed to remove its sponsorship from the "Jerusalem Marathon", used by Israel to bolster the Israeli- ruled "UNited Jerusalem". [ak] 20/3/2018

While Being Assaulted By Soldiers, Four Medics Rescue Wounded Palestinians – VideoFiras Tanneena - IMEMC - Four Palestinian medics rushed in to help wounded demonstrators, when they themselves came under an intensive barrage of tear gas and pepper-spray. Three of the medics managed to rush one of the wounded Palestinians to a nearby ambulance, while Nisreen Amira - 19 years old volunteer medic - stayed behind to attend to a second wounded demonstrator. When a soldier attempted to drag away her patient Nisreen protected him, firmly holding on to his arm. By then, the three other medics returned to the area, and managed to evacuate the wounded young man to a hospital. After the assault, and the injuries she suffered, Nisreen smiled and placed the gas mask on her face: “This is the third time I get injured by the soldiers, but I will continue to perform my duty.” [ak]13/3/2018

Haim Hanegbi Bajayo, the Palestinian Hebronite Jew
--including the film `Hebron in my heart` by Eran Torbiner--
Ahmad Jaradat - AIC/IMEMC - Veteran Israeli activist Haim Hanegbi was buried at the Metropolitan Tel Aviv Cemetary, attended by numerous fellow activists who had known him at various parts of his life. But Palestinians - especially those of Hebron - mourned him not only as "true fighter for justice" but also and especially as a Palestinian Hebronite Jew, one of their own - which was, indeed, how he at various times defined himself. Haim Hanegbi Bajayo was a descendant of the old Jewish community of Hebron, and after 1967 strongly resisted the campaign of extreme-right Israeli settlers - none of them having any connection to that old community - to establish themselves by force in Hebron. He had formed a committee of old Hebronite Jews to oppose the settlers, asking the Hebron Municipality to take full sponsorship of Jewish properties and homes in the city, and emphasizing that the Hebronite Jews would not return to their homes until the Palestinian refugees return to their own lands, cities and homes. Walking the streets of Hebron, he once said: "I am sad - also for myself. The settlers occupied my home like they occupied the homes of the rest of the Palestinians." [ak] 6/3/2018

One State Foundation launches todayJonathan Ofir - Moondoweiss - We are still in times where speaking about a single democratic and secular state in Israel-Palestine is considered contentious. Just look how former Knesset Speaker Avraham Burg was received at a liberal synagogue in NY, when he spoke about this concept – Rabbi Matalon called him a “troublemaker”, and rabbi Cohen said he “pushed all the buttons”. But today, a new foundation is officially launching – the One State Foundation, which boldly and clearly promotes this concept and goal.-rh 8/3/2018

New exhibit shows slumping Israeli flag, draws culture minister`s ireItay Blumenthal, Moran Azulay - Ynet -A new controversial art installation of an Israeli flag atop a tilted mast, which appears about to fall, was erected at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv. Sculptor Itai Zlait, who created the exhibit, explained that it signifies the country`s "interim state," between order and disorder, prosperity and austerity, democracy and tyranny. "What I`m trying to do is show the depth of the rift we`re in. We are exposed to a lot of hatred and lack of information, and I`ve tried to show it neutrally." Culture Minister Miri Regev angrily denounced Zlait`s exhibit as "cheap and outrageous political provocation by fringe leftist circles". [ak]6/3/2018
