    Ahed Tamimi and other Palestinians

    felt like this needed a new thread - I wasn't completely happy with the title of the previous one. Here's an interview with Ahed Tamimi's lawyer

    It needs some replies too. Tamini would probably be an international cause celebre if she came from most other countries, but, alas, she doesn't.

            "People are also criticizing Ahed and the Tamimis for “staging” or otherwise planning her protests. Of course they do. That’s the whole point. They understand that the only way they stand a chance against the Israelis is to play by the script, by the rules of engagement that both sides in the theater that is that hill have more or less agreed to. The script allows the Tamimis and their supporters to at least slow the inexorable take-over of their land. The Israelis get to use their relative “restraint” to show how moral they are. Except for shooting her cousin, of course. And all the other shootings, beatings, arrests, and so on."

                Rebecca Vilkerson is married to an Israeli , and her children are Israeli.

                Meanwhile even the New York Times is writing about a one state solution these days.

                Whilst its editorial puts the blame squarely on Netanyahu and Trump

                  The full list of banned organisations


                  AFPS (Association France Palestine Solidarité)
                  BDS France
                  Bds Italy
                  ECCP (European Co-ordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine)
                  Friends of Al-Aqsa
                  Ireland Palestine Solidarity Committee
                  Norwegian Palestine Committee
                  Palestine Solidarity Association of Sweden
                  Palestine Solidarity Campaign
                  War on Want
                  BDS Kampagne
                  AFSC (American Friends Service Committee)
                  American Muslims for Palestine
                  Code Pink
                  Jewish Voice for Peace
                  National Students for Justice in Palestine
                  US Campaign for Palestinian Rights
                  BDS Chile
                  BDS South Africa
                  BDS National Committee

                  A reminder that because access to Palestine is only possible via Israel these organisations are all banned from Palestine as well as Israel.

                  perhaps the most shocking on that list is the American Friends Service Committee. The Quakers who probably did more than any other group to save Jewish lives.

                  Already banned "Isabel Phiri, a citizen of Malawi living in Switzerland who is a senior official of the World Council of Churches"

                        This from Haaretz on banning Quaker Peace and Service

                        It feels as though Israel is finally making the break with Reform Judaism and liberal & left wing Jews. It would rather hang out with Steve Bannon and Donald Trump and their fellow antisemites of Poland and Hungary. It will in the long run prove fatal.

                              Did anyone here the so called objective piece on Today this morning, it was only towards the very end of the piece that we were told that her cousin was shot by a rubber bullet and it failed to mention how badly injured he was. Another shameful piece from the BBC.

                              Malana gets shot by the Taliban and there is outrage, Ahed stands up to an occupying army and gets imprisoned to a chorus of mainstream silence.

                                Seinfeld visits the occupied territories

                                Located in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank, Caliber 3 is a counterterrorism and security training academy that in recent years has built on its expertise to create a new line of business: special programs for tourists seeking a taste of the Israeli military experience.
                                Caliber 3 offers a basic package which includes a simulation of a suicide bombing in a Jerusalem marketplace, immediately followed by a stabbing attack, a live demonstration with attack dogs and a sniper tournament. The cost of this basic package is $115 per adult and $85 per child, with discounts available for large groups.

                                  You don't actually get to kill any Palestinians but if you manage to by accident nobody will mind

                                    I wonder if you can buy a SpeedPass and bypass the long lines at the border checkpoint.

                                      You think illegal settlers and by extension illegal settlement tourists join the Palestinians at the checkpoints? They even have their own roads. Even the US circa whites only drinking fountains didn't have separate roads

                                          Still, what an absolute cunt Seinfeld has proven himself to be.

                                            I must admit that I assumed that the quote Nef reproduced was a joke. Albeit a not very funny joke.

                                              Oh. I confess I didn't get it. Or rather I understood you were making a joke but not really what the joke was. I still don't, truly. I guess I don't find it a terribly funny subject.

                                                Glenn Greenwald has tweeted some video footage as well as photos of Seinfeld and his family at this delightful little attraction. It's beyond offensive.

                                                  Oh, well, when you go to Disney and Universal, you can buy a SpeedPass and bypass the lineup one time on each ride. Basically a first-class amusement park ticket, vs business class.

                                                  It was more gallows humour, but I thought it worked.
