  • Palestinian Legal strategy against Israel: The Real Prize is Europe
    • The resolution by itself does not mean very much, sort of like putting the Palestinians in the closet at the UN while the rest get to sit in the setting room.

      But the far-ranging implications are enormous, not right away, but cumulative. If the PLO has any balls, it will first sign the Rome statute.

      I wouldn't miss this for anything after 45 years of working for justice in Palestine

  • Netanyahu Commits to Colonizing East Jerusalem; First Palestinian Expelled under new Policy
    • Huffington Post is finally getting it, Democracy Now actually does good reports, Christian Science Monitor has written some decent articles, even Jon Stewart sort of, kind of gets it.

      We are making inroads, and Israel will lose the battle for public opinion...just not sure it will lose in time to save the Palestinians

    • It's called genocide. Genocide has nothing to do with numbers killed but with state intent. Israel commits all four of the parts of genocide. Let's start calling what Israel does by its real name. "

      Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

      (a) Killing members of the group;
      (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
      (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
      (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
      (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
