Tell Congress: "NO to bankrupting Palestine!" 24/9/2019

Tell Congress: "NO to bankrupting Palestine!"Alison Weir - If Americans Knew - Palestinians are being demonized again by Congress. The proposed laws would enable American victims of violence from Palestinian perpetrators (for example, suicide bombings) to sue the PA through the American court system – even though the PA had no connection to the culprits, and even though Israeli bombings killed vastly more civilians. (Meanwhile, American victims of violence inflicted by the Israeli military would continue to have no recourse.) As pro-Israel lawmakers lay this trap for Palestine, US laws are already on the books – for example, the Leahy Laws – that limit aid to countries practicing Gross Human Rights Violations. These laws have never been applied to Israel – in spite of its well-documented history of human rights violations. Tell your representative and senators to keep their names off H.R.1837 and S.2132!

Hundreds of authors protest revocation of Kamila Shamsie`s literary prizeAlison Flood - The Guardian - The German city of Dortmund intended to grant this year`s Nelly Sachs Prize to the British Pakistani writer Kamila, but changed its mind on learning she backed the BDS movement, stating: “Actively participating in the cultural boycott [of Israel] contrasts with the claim of the Nelly Sachs prize to proclaim and exemplify reconciliation among peoples and cultures”. Hundreds of authors signed a letter of protest: "“What is the meaning of a literary award that undermines the right to advocate for human rights, the principles of freedom of conscience and expression and the freedom to criticize? Without these, art and culture become meaningless luxuries.” Arundhati Roy, JM Coetzee and Noam Chomsky were among the hundreds of signatories of the protest. [ak]24/9/2019

Hague court to deliberate war crimes proceedings charges against Benny Gantz, ex-Israeli Army Chief and leading opposition candidateAmira Hass - Ha`aretz/IMEMC - While Israelis go to the polls next Tuesday, The Dutch Central Court in The Hague will deliberate on a civil lawsuit filed against Benny Gantz - former Israeli Army Chief of Staff and at present an opposition politician, the main contender against Netnayahu. The suit concerns alleged war crimes committed during the 2014 Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, when Ganz was in command. It was filed by Dutch citizen Ismail Ziada, a resident of Gaza’s al-Bureij refugee camp and whose home was bombed by Israeli forces on July 20th, 2014. In the bombing, Ziada lost his mother, three of his brothers, his sister-in-law, a nephew, and a friend who was visiting the family. Gantz`s lawyers asserted that an official in Israel he could claim immunity unless proven to have acted with intent to cause harm or disregard the possibility of harm. In the ongoing Israeli elections campaign, Ganz was less restrained - actually boasting of his responsibility for the killing of thousands in bombing Gaza, in the hope that this would win right-wing voters.
