Blinken call with Israel FM, State readout: “The Secretary also emphasized the Biden Admin’s belief that the two-state solution is the best way to ensure Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state, living in peace alongside a viable and democratic Palestinian state.”
Regardless of the PA, Israel flouts its obligation as an occupying power in the West Bank by vaccinating people on one side of the street but not the other based on whether they’re Jewish or Palestinian. Indeed in Area C Israel has sole control under Oslo.
"Israel inaugurated a new highway in the occupied West Bank...that features a large concrete wall segregating Israeli and Palestinian traffic.,,,part of a segregated road system that benefits Jewish settlers."
#Israel 's vaccinating at world's fastest rate, yet excludes 4.5 ml #Palestinians under its control. In parts of West Bank, gettin #CovidVaccine depends on if you're Jewish or Palestinian @hrw on Israel's duty to provide vaccine to occupied Palestinians.
"I have a particular responsibility to be vocal – not because I'm Jewish, but because Israel pretends to speak in my name." This Jewish couple is committed to the Palestinian right of return and so has left Israel to boycott the occupation.
@BernieSanders says he’s “very proud of being Jewish,” but calls @IsraeliPM Benjamin Netanyahu a “reactionary racist” and says that while the U.S. must defend Israel's security, “you cannot ignore the suffering of the Palestinian people” #DemDebate
@BernieSanders addresses confrontation with @AIPAC : "I'm Jewish and I'm very proud of my Jewish heritage...I am not anti-Israel...but what we need in this country is a foreign policy that not only protects Israel but deals with the suffering of the Palestinian people as well."
This is a monumentally bad decision that could obliterate the chances of Israeli-Palestinian peace. And it puts Israel further down a path that has a terrible choice at the end - become a non-Jewish state or become a permanent apartheid state.
Me on : Do Palestinian citizens of Israel have a right to self-determination under Nation State law too or only Jewish citizens? Netanyahu ally Dore Gold: Nope. Canadian immigrants in America don't and nor do Mexican immigrants. Me: WTF?
A Palestinian man was attacked by Jewish right-wingers at a pro-Israel conference ... all in front of his daughter.
