Amsterdam mayor: Netanyahu ICC comments hurt fight against anti-SemitismToby Axelrod - Times of Israel - Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema, a former leader of the Dutch Green Left party, criticized Netanyahu’s recent statement that the Netherlands-based International Criminal Court has made “anti-Semitic edicts” when the court decided last month that it had jurisdiction to prosecute Israelis for alleged war crimes in Gaza in 2014. “If someone says for political gain that a legal investigation by the International Criminal Court of a state actor in Gaza is anti-Semitism, then you deeply undervalue the meaning [of] anti-Semitism and the dark outcomes of anti-Semitism nowadays and in history,” Halsema said Tuesday during her video address in the Mayors Summit Against Anti- Semitism, a virtual conference hosted by the German city of Frankfurt with the US-based Combat Anti-Semitism Movement. The Israeli Ambassador to the Netherlands expressed his surprise and disapppointment with the Mayor`s statement. Until now, the Government of Israel was used to international forums dealing with Anti-Semitism to endorse its policies rather than criticize them...[ak] 18/3/2021

Write to Congress: IHRA is the wrong way to fignt antisemitism! 11/3/2021
Write to Congress: IHRA is the wrong way to fignt antisemitism!Sarah - IfNotNowRight - The self-appointed leaders of the American Jewish community are lobbying members of Congress behind closed doors in a campaign to permanently codify the controversial IHRA working definition of antisemitism — which does more to shield the Israeli government from accountability than make American Jews safe. The IHRA working definition is a tool to shield the Israeli government from accountability. It’s part of the long-term strategy by the political establishment and self-appointed American Jewish leaders to shut down criticism of Israeli policy, target organizers of color, and support Israel’s ongoing violation of Palestinians’ basic human rights. The IHRA definition is vague and intentionally blurs the lines between legitimate criticism of Israeli policy and antisemitism. Already, the IHRA definition been abused to silence students and Palestinian rights activists in places like Canada and the UK. [ak] 11/3/2021
Jerusalem Section of al-Walajeh under Threat of Forced DisplacementIr Amim and Bimkom - Alert - Israel has been gradually confiscating al-Walajeh lands and detaching it from the Palestinian space around it. While its northern segment is situated within the Jerusalem municipal borders, the construction of the Separation Barrier between 2010 and 2017 around three sides of the village turned it into a nearly isolated enclave. The barrier severed it from the rest of the city, while likewise separating it from some 1200 dunams of the village`s agricultural lands now located on the Israeli side of the barrier. In tandem, these lands were declared by the Israeli Authorities as the Nahal Refaim National Park, a form of “touristic settlement,” which would serve to create Israeli territorial contiguity between Jerusalem and the Har Gilo settlement (part of the Gush Etzion bloc), constituting another link in the de facto annexation of "Greater Jerusalem."

Pro-BDS professor rumored frontrunner for Israel’s most prestigious prizeBatya Jerenberg - World Israel News - In May 2019, the Bundestag passed an advisory resolution calling on Germany’s regional and local governments to deny public funding or space to any person or institution that supports or identifies with the BDS movement. A few weeks later, some 240 mostly Jewish and Israeli scholars, condemned resolution, denied that BDS was anti-Semitic and expressed concern that the resolution curtailed the right of freedom of speech. One of these was Prof. Oded Goldreich of the Weizmann Institute, a well authority in cryptography and computational complexity theory, who the Knuth Prize in 2017 for outstanding contributions to the foundations of computer science. Hearing that Prof. Goldreich was about to be nominated for this year`s Israel Prize in the category of Mathematics and Computer Science, Education Minister Yoav Galant angrily demanded that Nominating Committee rescind its decision, since "a supporter of BDS was unworthy to receive the Prize". Legally, the Minister has no standing in the matter, the Nominating Committee being completely autonomous.[ak] 11/3/2021
