Ahed Tamimi: `I am a freedom fighter. I will not be the victim` Oliver Holmes and Sufian Taha - The Guardian - “The Jew or the settler child who carries a rifle at the age of 15, they are the victims of the occupation. For me, I am capable of distinguishing between right and wrong. But not him. His view is clouded. His heart is filled with hatred and scorn against the Palestinians. He is the victim, not me. I always say I am a freedom fighter. So I will not be the victim.” [bz]30/7/2018

Republican Jewish Coalition Boss Declares BDS as Dangerous to Jews as White SupremacistsRichard Silverstein - Tikun Olam - " Brooks has the unmitigated gall to claim that the “radical left”– by which he means the BDS movement and “intersectionality,” by which he means Black Lives Matter and its alliance with pro-Palestinian activists–is as dangerous to American Jews as white supremacists. Now keep in mind that neo-Nazis have murdered hundreds of Americans over the past few decades, including a number of Jews. Meanwhile no BDS leader or supporter, nor any BLM leader or supporter, has ever harmed anyone physically, let alone murdered them." - id18/7/2018

EU Blasts Israeli Minister: You Feed Disinformation and Mix BDS, Terror Noa Landau - Haaretz - Federica Mogherini, sent a personal, sharply worded letter to Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, asking him to provide proof of his ministry’s “vague and unsubstantiated” allegations that the EU is financing terror and boycott activities against Israel. Mogherini responds to a report issued in May by the Strategic Affairs Ministry titled “The millions given by EU institutions to NGOs with ties to terror and boycotts against Israel.” She also claims that the report in question contained errors. “For example, of the 13 organizations listed in the report, 6 do not receive EU funding for activities in Palestine and none of them receives EU funds for BDS activity,” She also noted, “In addition, as reported widely by the Israeli press in recent weeks, a number of the organizations referred to in the report also receive funding from other international donors including the United States.” [bz]17/7/2018

President Rivlin condemns discriminatory `Nationality Bill`Moran Azulay - Ynet - President Reuven Rivlin strongly objects to "The Nationality Bill" whose aim is to enshrine into law the status of Israel as "the nation state of the Jewish people" and which is massively backed by PM Netanyahu. Rivlin espcailly objects to clause 7(B) under which the state would be authorized to allow a community, including a one-religion or a one-nationality group, to "establish a separate community." This would legalize the exclusion of non-Jews or of specific groups such as Mizrahi Jews or LGBT people. In Rivlin`s view this is "contrary to the basic vision of Zionism" and might legitimize discrimination against Jews elsewhere in the world. [ak] 10/7/2018

UN concerned over expected demolition of illegal W. Bank villageAP - Ynet - "We call on the Israeli authorities not to proceed with the demolition of (Khan al Ahmar), to respect the rights of residents to remain on their land and have their status regularized," the spokeswoman, Liz Throssell, said. The Palestinians seek all of the territories captured by Israel in 1967 for a future independent state. They say that Area C, home to an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 Palestinians, is crucial to a future Palestine`s economic development. J Street, a left-wing liberal group in the US that describes itself as "pro-Israel", submitted a petition against the demolition signed by 7,000 people to the Israeli Embassy in Washington. It said the demolition would have far-reaching effects. "Beyond the devastation it would create for Khan al-Ahmar`s residents, the demolition would also strike a major blow to prospects for a two-state solution and a peaceful future for Israelis and Palestinians."

U.N. Expert: Israel Moving Closer To Formal West Bank AnnexationTova Lazaroff - Jerusalem Post - “After years of creeping Israeli de facto annexation of the large swathes of the West Bank through settlement expansion, the creation of closed military zones and other measures, Israel appears to be getting closer to enacting legislation that will formally annex parts of the West Bank,” Michael Lynk said. “This would amount to a profound violation of international law, and the impact of ongoing settlement expansion on human rights must not be ignored.” [bz]3/7/2018
