Calling British MPs to save Palestinian village schoolJahalin Solidarity - "On April 25, the Israeli High Court will hear the final appeal of the Palestinian Bedouin community of Al Khan al Ahmar. If the appeal is rejected, the school will be demolished, followed by the demolition of the rest of the village. Pressure by the British government on Israel has often been known to help prevent – or at least defer – forced displacement of Palestinians. The Jahalin are now asking British citizens to help by urging their MPs to demand immediate action by the UK Government. Act now through Do-Gooder:" ca27/4/2018

Young Jewish Resistance in America Hails Portman’s Stance as Turning Point on IsraelDina Kraft - Ha`aretz - “It certainly feels like a new moment, for such a prominent and proud Israeli to take the stance she is taking,” says Andrew Goldbatt of the Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman. "The mantle of legitimacy she lends will embolden young American Jews – specifically fellow progressive Zionists like himself – to feel more comfortable speaking out against Israeli policies that they too find objectionable.It will also enable them to say, as Portman did in her statement, that you can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the country. The key is that she cited her `Jewish values` as the basis for her objections to Netanyahu`s policies." [ak] 24/4/2018

Bereaved Israelis and Palestinians Join in Shared Grief at Alternative Memorial Day Event Dina Kraft - Haaretz - More than 5,000 people arrived for the event at Yarkon Park. High Court overruled defense minister who tried to block attendance of bereaved Palestinians. “I think it’s the only event that happens on Memorial Day that actually brings hope," says Robi Damelin, an activist for Parents Circle-Families Forum. Parents Circle is co-sponsoring The Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day ceremony, now in its 13th year, together with Combatants for Peace, composed of former Israeli soldiers and Palestinian militants. During the ceremony, bereaved families from both sides share stories of personal pain. [David Grossman, who lost his soldier son, was among them. The well-known writer announced that he donates the money he will get later this week as laureate of the Israel Prize to the Bereaved Families Forum and Elifelet, which provides kindergartens for children of African asylum seekers in the slums of South Tel Aviv.-bz] 17/4/2018

Court overturns move to bar Palestinians from Memorial Day serviceTimes of Israel - The High Court on Tuesday ordered Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman to grant entry permits to Israel to 90 Palestinians who are slated to attend an Israeli-Palestinian memorial service in Tel Aviv on Tuesday evening, saying his decision to ban them was “unreasonable” and “imbalanced.” Liberman angrily retorted that the ruling "created an equivalency between `terrorists` and bereaved families". The Palestinians were invited as participants at the annual ceremony, organized by the Combatants for Peace and the Israeli and Palestinian Bereaved Families for Peace groups as an alternative to the standard Israeli Memorial Day events.

After Gaza border bloodshed - protest at Likud Party HQ, Tel Aviv 1/4/2018
B`Tselem urges soldiers to refuse to shoot protestors in GazaAmit Gilutz - B`Tselem - Tomorrow (Thursday) B`Tselem will launch a campaign entitled “Sorry, Sir, I can`t shoot”. The campaign will include newspaper advertisements clarifying to soldiers that they must refuse to open fire on unarmed demonstrators. The organization is taking this unusual step following last Friday’s events, when soldiers used live fire against unarmed demonstrators. Of at least 17 Palestinians killed that day, 12 were killed at the protests. Hundreds more were injured by live gunfire. Ahead of the expected renewed demonstrations this Friday, B`Tselem is again clarifying that shooting unarmed demonstrators is illegal and that orders to shoot in this manner are manifestly illegal.[ak]4/4/2018

Dublin city council votes to support BDS, call for expulsion of the Israeli AmbassadorIreland Palestine Solidarity Campaign / The Irish Examiner - Adopted by a clear majority, the text of the resolution starts with "Dublin City Council votes to support Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement aimed at pressuring Israel to end occupation and obey international law". The vote took place after Dublin Mayor Mícheál Mac Donncha, of the Sinn Féin Party, rejected out of hand a call by the Israeli Embassy to block the issue from coming on the city council`s agenda. Indeed, the city council went to vote on a separate resolution calling upon the Government of Ireland to altogether expel the Israeli Ambassador. While that is mainly declaratory, for its own part the Dublin City Council concretely resolved to severe all business contact with the Hewlett- Packard company and its HP spin-off DXC Technology, since "HP and DXC provide and operate much of the technology infrastructure that Israel uses to maintain its system of apartheid and settler colonialism over the Palestinian people.” [ak] 10/4/2018
