“Do you want your kids to grow up defending the side of the oppressors?” Jews around the world must contemplate this question, which Mariam Afifi asked the Israeli officer who arrested her last night. JVP is building Jewish community beyond Zionism. Join us. #SaveSheikhJarrah

The times are changing. Congress is no longer a place that will rubber stamp unconditional military funding for the Israeli government. This is an unprecedented moment for Palestinian rights.

While the Israeli military touts their eco-friendly vegan leather boots, they burn and destroy Palestinian ecosystems and farm land. This is greenwashing. Making empty reforms while others suffer the consequences of colonialism driven climate disaster. middleeasteye.net/opinion/pa…

More than 92% of JNF's land was not purchased by Jews before 1948 but was occupied by Israel & transferred to the JNF, which took over the depopulated villages to "redeem" their lands for Jewish settlement & also publicly encouraged the continued exile of Palestinians #ExposeJNF

This is how we look at our beloved anti-Zionist Jewish community! Chag Sukkot sameach 🍋
Find someone who looks at you with the joy and tenderness these rabbis have for their giant etrogim.

Theft of land, destruction of native agriculture, poisoning of water, not to mention the abject environmental destruction caused by endless bombs and chemical warfare. What has been done to Palestine by the Israeli regime is a crime against nature as well as humanity.

Our global fight for justice knows no borders. From the U.S. to Palestine to everywhere, we must reimagine the politics of borders & citizenship as we know it. Let’s continue to work to build a safe world for everyone everywhere.
There are 26.4 million #refugees today- that number will grow due to climate change and endless wars. We have to radically rethink the rigid bounds of citizenship and the challenge the fallacy that if we tighten our borders we can hoard materials and survive what's to come.

A Palestinian boy digs a hole with a spoon to "get prisoners out." 🥺 The Israeli government can’t recapture the liberated spirit and imagination of everyone inspired by the 6 escaped Palestinian prisoners, even though it has recaptured the prisoners themselves. #FreeThemAll

Palestinian children are disproving David Ben Gurion’s assurance that “the old will die, and the young will forget” about Zionism’s atrocities and the justice Palestinians deserve. They are not forgetting. They are remembering with passion, vitality, and creativity.

The Nakba began with the first land purchase by the Jewish National Fund and other #Zionist settler-colonial organizations that supported Jewish exclusivity and supremacy over the land. #ExposeJNF #Palestine

Not only are Palestinian-American activists transforming the debate around US policy toward Israel-Palestine, they're doing it in the face of one of the most aggressive and well-funded smear campaigns in US politics. Great article.
The past few months have shown the Palestinian diaspora that, although we are far from our homeland, our position in the struggle for liberation is neither peripheral nor helpless, writes @tksshawa. 972mag.com/palestinian-ameri…

Over the next three weeks, follow @Zochrot and use the hashtag #ExposeJNF as we shed light on the JNF’s 120 years of orchestrating #Palestinian dispossession and displacement, violent and #illegal acts which continue to this day. #ExposeJNF #Palestine

Global consensus is growing: Israel is an apartheid regime. As with apartheid South Africa, a @UN investigation of Israeli apartheid is a necessary step towards freedom for Palestinians. #UNGA76 must act. We demand #UNInvestigateApartheid & impose a #MilitaryEmbargo on Israel!

On the 39th anniversary of the Sabra & Shatila massacre, we remember the thousands of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians murdered senselessly by the Phalange, a right-wing Christian Lebanese Militia, under the watch of Israel. Read our factsheet here: imeu.org/article/the-sabra-s…

Commemorating 39 years since the Israeli-sponsored massacre of thousands of mostly Palestinian refugees & Lebanese civilians in Sabra & Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon. Israel is yet to be held accountable for the 3-day brutal massacre. #ICC4Israel #UNinvestigateApartheid

The media has turned its attention away from Gaza but progressives in the House haven't. We need all hands to support this amendment led by @AOC @RashidaTlaib & @repmarkpocan to stop $735 million worth of Boeing bombs from going to Israel. #BlockTheBombs: bit.ly/BlockWeaponsToIsrael
