As Israelis, we call on the world to intervene on behalf of PalestiniansIlana Hammerman&David Harel - The Guardian "...a destructive, violent and explosive reality is becoming the norm in these areas. We, who are located in the midst of this reality, believe the international community must help, since that community alone is responsible for enforcing compliance with its treaties and with the decisions of its institutions, and since in the current circumstances only it can do so.Never have these issues been as clear cut and as urgent as they are today: if peace is not established in this part of the world very soon, an area that has become a timebomb of national and religious tensions, there will be no future and no life for us or the Palestinians." ca 30/6/2018

June 22, 2018 Al-Auja, Khan al-Ahmar David Shulman - Touching Photographs "To tear down a school is possibly worse even than breaking a home into pieces and burying the pieces in the sand. How many homes have we rebuilt after the army took them down? We’re almost used to it. But a school? Where children first learn to read, where they dream their dreams and play in the courtyard and sing the multiplication table and recite the poetry of the desert and say their prayers? I’m a teacher. I have spent most of my life in classrooms, teaching this and that, languages, thoughts, memories, poems. The mud-and-tires school of Khan al-Ahmar is like any of the others, only more so, like the university I have loved, like the school in Iowa where I learned to read and first fell in love—an almost holy place. It’s not a word I use." ca23/6/2018

A Historian of The Holocaust Details the Shocking Precedent for Trump’s Decision to `Terrorize Children`Richard E. Frankel - Alternet - In recent days, millions of Americans have seen the shocking, heartbreaking images of children—crying, screaming, hysterical children—being ripped from the arms of their parents and sent away to a newly constructed camp in the Texas desert. So many of us have been justifiably outraged by the news. Here are children, arriving with their parents after a perilous journey, seeking asylum from the life-threatening conditions in their home countries, being terrorized by agents of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). And all of it part of a deliberate policy implemented by Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, and Stephen Miller in their ongoing effort to re-build a white, Christian America through the exclusion (in this case through terror) of all those they deem to be outsiders.-rh20/6/2018

Over 300 public figures from around the world: Forcible transfer of Khan al-Ahmar community a war crimeB`Tselem - All people responsible for it – including the Israeli prime minister and the minister of defense – bear personal liability. The recent decision by Israel’s High Court of Justice to approve the demolition of the Khan al-Ahmar community, and thus to provide their legal stamp of approval for the forcible transfer of the community’s residents, changes nothing with regard to the above analysis. All it does is also implicate Israeli High Court justices in what is nothing short of a war crime, no matter how much legal formalism is enlisted in an effort to excuse the inexcusable. [ak]12/6/2018
