Stand with Conscientious objector Hallel Rabin!Yesh Gvul - Conscientious objector Hallel Rabin was sent to the military prison because of her refusal to join an army of occupation which oppresses the Palestinians. She has asked - and fully deserves - for public support for her struggle. The army`s method of dealing with refusers and conscientious objectors (male or female alike) is incremental sentences of a month at a time, After each term the objector is again ordered to enlist, refuses again and is sent again to prison. Hallel Rabin is now undergoing the third such one-month term, and many more can follow, Using this method enables the army to avoid a court martial which would be held in public and where the defendant can be represented by a lawyer and call witnesses. Instead, the cumulative one-month terms are issued at "instant trials" held in camera at an officer`s bureau and lasting about five minutes. `Mesarvot` and `Yesh Gvul` invite the public to attend a protest vigil in support of Hallel and decrying her incarceration, Today, Saturday October 31st, 2020 at 12:30 .

Join us (on zoom) to hear this story of a small persistent village ‎ 20/10/2020
Refuser Hallel Rabin en route to a prolonged stay in the military prison Refuser Solidarity Network - Hallel Rabin, an 18 years old kibbutz girl, had declared her refusal to join the Israeli army and was immediately subjected to the army`s "cumulative imprisonment" system - i.e. a term lasting a few weeks, followed by another several weeks and another and another, which altogether might add up to a long time behind bars. "We are living in a period of both change and struggle. Everywhere in the world, young people are fighting for real democracy, and are using civil disobedience to combat racism and injustice. In the territories occupied by Israel, basic human rights and liberties are constantly denied, while the Palestinian are deprived of the freedom to live freely. I was raised on the values of freedom, compassion and love. Fighting to keep another nation enslaved contradicts these values. While I know my refusal is small and personal, I wish to be the change I want to see in the world, and to show that another way is possible. Little people make big changes. It is time to shout: There is no such thing as good repression, no such thing as justifiable racism and no more room for the Israeli occupation." [ak] 20/10/2020

The Israeli merchants of death flying drones off Britain’s coastlineAsa Winstanley - MEMO - “Elbit is Israel’s largest private arms firm and is infamous for its killer drones. The Hermes 900 is a massive piece of military- grade equipment, more or less the size of a conventional fighter aircraft. [...] Elbit proudly advertises its wares as `battle-tested` on Palestinians” [ry] 12/10/2020

Human rights defenders sue German parliament over anti-BDS resolutionAdri Nieuwhof - EI - “Before the Bundestag adopted its anti-BDS resolution, dozens of Jewish and Israeli scholars warned the German parliament not to label supporters of Palestinian human rights as anti-Semitic. They stated that moves to label BDS as anti-Semitic were ‘promoted by Israel’s most right-wing government in history’ as part of an effort to ‘delegitimize any discourse about Palestinian rights and any international solidarity with the Palestinians’” [ry] 12/10/2020

76 days on hunger strike! 11/10/2020

Seventy six days on  hunger strike! Free Administrative detainee Maher al Akhras NOW!  We appeal to you, requesting urgent intervention to save the life of the administrative detainee Maher al-Akhras, since all contacts for his release have come to naught. Al-Akhras is in dire straits, on the 76th day of his hunger strike. Al-Akhras is entitled to the basic human right: to know what he is accused of and to be able to respond to the accusations. If there are no charges, he must be released immediately. This right is given to every person in Israel, and to every person in a free society. Why would al-Akhras not be entitled to this basic right? The State of Israel has made the administrative detentions, which allow it to imprison people without a release date, and without an indictment, a tool used against Palestinians in an arbitrary and common way. Al-Akhras, a father of six from Jenin, is on hunger strike in protest of his administrative detention. [ak]11/10/2020

Columbia University students vote to boycott Israeli companies which benefit from the occupation BDS movement - At a referendum, the Columbia University students voted 61% in favor of divesting from companies that are complicit with Israeli crimes against Palestinians, which 27% of students rejected this move and 11% abstained. The referendum, which was passed last week, recommended the university “divest its stocks, funds and endowment from companies that profit from or engage in the State of Israel’s acts towards Palestinians that fall under the United Nations International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid.” Columbia is the largest American academic institution to date whose students pass such a resolution. However, the university administration which controls its finances and investments is not obliged to abide by the student referendum results. [ak] 6/10/2020

Ariel U. study rejected because author refused to remove `written in Israel`Tzvi Joffre - Jerusalem Post - Dr. Mindy Levine from Ariel University submitted a paper to the science journal "Molecules", giving her address as "Ariel, Israel". A group of chemists from around the world noted Ariel is located in occupied territory and not in Israel. The group is led by Prof. George Smith, winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Prof. Malcolm Levitt, a fellow of London`s Royal Society. The editors of "Molecules" asked Levine to remove the word Israel from the address at the head of the study, and at her refusal the journal canceled publication of the study. “All that was asked of Dr. Mindy Levine was that she be more exact with facts. Ariel is not part of the State of Israel. That is not a political statement, it is a simple fact,” said Gush Shalom movement spokesman Adam Keller. “Ariel is not part of the State of Israel, not according to international law and also not according to the laws of the State of Israel itself.” A full legal process, including a decision by the government and the passing of an annexation law by the Knesset, would need to be carried out for Ariel to be considered part of Israel. “A process such as this has never been carried out concerning Ariel”.
