  • Victim of McCarthy-Era Witch Hunt calls on U-Illinois not to Fire Critic of Israeli Policies
    • My father was hunted in the early 50s, called a Communist (he was a labor union organizer in Detroit) and almost hounded out of his teaching job. The main reason it did not happen is because McCarthy began to lose his luster. Now, the same thing is happening again under the guise of "anti-semitism." Same vicious people, different calling card

  • Turkish Court asks Interpol to arrest 4 Israeli ex-Generals for Gaza Aid Ship Murders
    • Although I agree with some of the comments above, many of you are missing the point. These voyages were always an attempt to break Israel's draconian siege on 1.5 million Palestinians, herded together in a concentration camp. Israel's attack on our Flotilla was an attack on civilians sailing in international waters. They attacked all six boats, injuring over 50 people as well as murdering 10, one an American. We, the members of civil society who organized these trips (5 of them successful) are distressed that any of you actually think governments had anything to do with our actions. They did not

  • 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.
