My name is Ariel Koren. I am a Jewish Google worker who has worked at Google for over seven years. I feel so grateful to over 700 Googlers (alongside 25,000 people externally) who recently signed a petition calling on Google to rescind its act of retaliation against me for protesting Google’s Project Nimbus—a $1.2 billion dollar contract between Google, Amazon, and the Israeli government and military.
"... this decision stresses the 22 previous decisions of the Executive Board and the 11 decisions of the World Heritage Committee on Jerusalem, which all expressed concern surrounding the failure of Israel, in its capacity as an occupying force, to halt its digging, construction of tunnels and other illegal actions in East Jerusalem, in accordance with international law."
Putin emulates Israelis by following a petulant delusion, committing war crimes with brazen impunity, and then engaging in dizzying spin, all towards a nihilistic non sequitur. Mr Abbas choses a belligerent exactly like his abuser. On the other hand, Blinken does not remotely hold Israelis to account for their exceedingly bad behaviour.
Palestine is f*cked, pardon my French. The modern embodiment of the nation of Israel is the brainchild of the accounting firm of the last empire, the British. The Rothschilds gave it to themselves after double dipping, meaning after taking their cut for their services and still going for more. It doesn't really matter on whose mercy Palestine throws itself, they will always have a Goliath task in front of them (forgive the reference); the Rothschildian systemic gatekeeping has blunted the resolve of Arabs, Europeans, Americans and... Russians too. The rule of law at this point is just window dressing for blackmail. My question is when did the few ever dictate to the masses!? Is it laziness, is it entrenchment, is it brainwashing...? 🤷🏻♀️ Or just greediness.
Ministers in the new government are set to include figures such as Itamar Ben-Gvir, who was convicted in Israel in 2007 for incitement to racism and supporting a Jewish terrorist organization. He will probably be minister of national security. Bezalel Smotrich, who has long supported outright annexation of the West Bank, is expected to be named the next finance minister, with additional authority over the administration of the West Bank. For the deputy in the prime minister’s office in charge of Jewish identity, Mr. Netanyahu is expected to name Avi Maoz, who once described himself as a “proud homophobe.”
This is what I predicted before the election, when I was being shadowed on my morning walks by a strange man who'd been expelled from the ME and lives where I can't seem to be rescued from. I digress. The man referred affectionately to the evil Smurf leader by his diminutive nickname and had an absurd alternate version about the 67 war. I'm droning now. When he set me up to get my reaction by saying Bibi will win, I said "good". The look on his face was priceless. I continued by saying, "good, because maybe now he will manage to piss off more people. It's official, the Netanyahu government of far-right extremists has caused world outrage:
I cannot believe self-respecting people, let alone the Jewry, being okay with such bloodlust. There must be exorcisms performed because at this point, clearly the Devil has taken residence. I'm at wit's end.
The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said Israeli forces initially prevented medics from entering Jenin camp, making it difficult to reach injured individuals, four of whom were in critical condition.
The PRC said Israeli forces also fired tear gas canisters towards the Jenin Government Hospital, causing inhalation injuries among children.
Later on Thursday, a 22-year-old Palestinian man was shot and killed by Israeli troops in Al-Ram near Jerusalem, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said, making him the tenth Palestinian killed that day.
I have to ask. How many generations are still going to have to be sacrificed, before the world realizes this experiment is an epic failure? When will sanity return the Holy Land to its physical and moral integrity where Christians, Muslims and Jews coexist - as they did before all this?
Reunify, lay down a framework of equal citizenship and multiculturalize. Enough time and resources have been wasted.
We can add looting of UNESCO archeological sites now, to the inequities.
The Mayor of Sebastia, Mohammad Azem, told Wafa that Israeli soldiers stole the artefacts after surrounding the archaeological site in the village and interrogating staff from the municipality and the Ministry of Tourism for hours.
The occupation forces detained the staff while they were working at the archaeological site after they were informed of the discovery by Palestinian construction workers who were in the middle of building a new road.
Sebastia is a small historic town located on a hill 11 kilometres to the north-west of Nablus, 3,000 Palestinians inhabit the area. The area has been identified as the capital of the northern kingdom during the Iron Age II in Palestine and a major urban centre during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, according to UNESCO.
Is this what a democracy does? Does daily life look like this anywhere else, when going from A to B? Letting this stuff happen has already spawned the kind of lowlife impunity that gave us the war in Ukraine. How low can the bar still go?
So by their own "standards", the Knesset recognizes Israelis and the IDF as committing and threatening acts of terror, by causing serious harm to property or to public health and safety, who should be stripped of citizenship and residency...
There is no difference between Putin and Netanyahu. Attacking civilians with the apparatus of war, in this case the "IDF" who we've all seen partaking in crimes of war, enforcing apartheid and genocidal tactics towards Palestinians - is tantamount to condoning unjust wars, cowardly ones of punching down, and definitely illegal wars. It's not an internal conflict when Israelis displace millions of people to neighbouring countries or attack Holy Sites. The IDF need to be declared terrorists, the same definition and only definition that applies. It's inexcusable to have let this go on for decades. Israelis have NO moral high ground. They have violated the peace of the Holy Land and probably seek to destroy it at this rate so they can revise history as dictators do.
