Activists protest Tel Aviv arms exhibition: `Arms trade is death trade`
Human rights activists demonstrated today at the entrance to the ISDEF weapons and security export exhibition in Tel Aviv. This year`s exhibition included official delegations from, among other, the Philippines, Morocco, Uganda, Bahrain, and Belarus, which recently took part in the Russian invasion to Ukraine. The activists demanded an end to the Israeli arms trade and the profit- making of Israeli arms and cyber companies on the expense of lives and the freedom of civilians, journalists and human rights activists in Palestine and around the world.
Blocade
Gush Shalom - A naval blockade? What a villainy! i The Russian navy Has imposed A naval blockade On Ukraine, Preventing all ships From arriving. In Israel The media Pointed to The naval blockade As one more Deplorable manifestation Of Russian aggression. The residents of The Gaza Strip Should be glad To know that, Albeit very late, Israelis are beginning To oppose Naval blockades. Gush Shalom statement, March 17, 2022
Ambitious Mike Pence meets with Miriam Adelson and anti-Christian Israelis
Alison Weir If Amercians Knew - Hungry for campaign money, former VP Mike Pence went to Israel to pay tribute to billionaire Miriam Adelson, and met with Israeli extremists who endorse violence against non-Jews, are hostile to “accursed Christianity,’ and have been connected to a movement banned as a terror organization… Adelson (an Israeli dual citizen) & husband Sheldon gave more than half a billion dollars to Republican campaigns, party organs, and interest groups during the past five U.S. election cycles...
Israelis support Russian opposition to the Ukraine War
We are writing to you as citizens of Israel who oppose the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip, and are committed to the struggle against Jewish supremacy and for the rights of the Palestinian people. Many of us have experience in resisting the occupation through actions such as refusal to serve in the military, public testimony regarding its crimes, street protests and public pressure; and within left-wing, feminist, anti-militarist and other organizations. Like you, over the last few days we have watched with dismay and disgust as the Russian army launched its criminal invasion of Ukraine, but besides the firm resistance of the Ukrainian people, the striking activity of the anti-war movement in Russia has also been a great light in the darkness. Without comparing our situation to yours - and the differences are many - we take inspiration from your resistance. The courage with which you are acting proves that the Putin regime has not been able to break the spirit of Russian society, which continues to harbor real hope for an immediate homecoming of the troops, a return to the negotiation table and a peaceful solution. We wish you success and promise to do all we can to amplify your voice in the public sphere in Israel and abroad. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of any assistance to you. In solidarity,
An unsatisfactory answer
Adam Keller - Gush Shalom - An unsatisfactory answer The Prime Minister Takes pride In the fact that His government Will not negotiate With the Palestinians Under any circumstances, And certainly not Make an agreement With them. The Foreign Minister Made it crystal clear That when he Becomes Prime Minister, That policy will Remain unchanged Any Palestinian, Anywhere and at any time, Can fall victim to Arbitrary, sometimes fatal, Abuse by Israeli soldiers. Even an 80 year-old grandfather Is not safe. The settlers are not satisfied With the army`s violence And add a full measure Of their own violence. As far as the government Is concerned, This state of affairs Can and should Continue indefinitely. When accused of Imposing a policy Of apartheid, The Prime Minister And the Foreign Minister Shriek: "Antisemitism! Antisemitism!" But, truth to tell, That response Just rings hollow. [ak]
Palestinians in the snow: thrown from home into the snow, throw snowballs and get arrested
Ta`ayush - The occupation forces demolished a dwelling in the A-Tour neighborhood of East Jerusalem on Wednesday, leaving two Palestinian families homeless in the snow; terrorist-colonists from ‘Yitzhar’ celebrated the release from prison of their friend by holding a pogrom in Huwwara, wounding three Palestinians, among them a 3-year-old child; Minister Isawi Freij came to tour the South Hebron Hills escorted by army and GSS forces, but was chased out of the area by a drone flown by settlers from a nearby outpost; The outpost terrorists continue to attack and threaten Palestinian shepherds, and invade tended Palestinian fields with their flocks in the Palestinian Jordan Valley and West Bank Hill Range; At least 45 Palestinians were arrested in East Jerusalem while celebrating the snow with Palestine flags and throwing snowballs at the occupation forces.
All to Burin this Friday! Stand with the Palestinians against settler violence!
Dani Brodsky - Rabbis for Human Rights - Tomorrow, Fri. Feb 4, we are heading to Burin, to go tree planting activity in support of Palestinian farmers and to take a stand against Jewish terror and settler violence. In the previous activity in Burin, volunteers experienced severe violence from settlers. Most activities take place safely without any violence or danger, but there is always a risk of violence during activities in the Occupied Territory. It is important for you to know that the activity is coordinated with the police and the army, and we always recommend not going anywhere alone. The commitment of so many people to stand side by side in the face of settler violence is our strength and shield. The activity will be led by very experienced activists who are committed to maintaining your safety. The activity will not take place in the form of a demonstration, following the request of the residents of Burin and due to the fear that after the volunteers leave, the settlers will use violence in retaliation against the Palestinian residents of Burin, without anyone protecting them or standing by them. The focus will be on completing the tree planting and making a clear and determined statement against the ongoing violence. [AK]
Weekly report of Settler violence, army and police repression
Taayush - This week, November 28 to December 4, 2021, in the Occupied Territories: A settler tried to invade Tawane – activists staying in the village were accused by police of assaulting him and kept two days in custody, while army forces raided Tawane and confiscated computers, cameras and a car, all without a warrant; In Touba, settlers invaded village fields with their cattle causing severe damage, but the Israeli army distanced the Palestinian villagers and arrested one of them; Jerusalem police, equipped with a search warrant signed by judge Elad Lang, raided twice in a week an apartment inhabited by leftist activists suspected of spraying pro-Palestinian graffiti in town; Settler-thugs vandalized property in Saroura in the South Hebron Hills and in the village of Makhmas near Ramallah; The occupation forces went on another demolition rampage this week, both in the South Hebron Hills and in East Jerusalem; Celebrating Hannukah, settlers rioted in Sheikh Jarrah backed up by the police, placing a Hannukah lamp at the door of the Al Kurd family who are threatened with expulsion;
