Today, Shahar Schwartz, 18 y/o, announced he refuses to join the Israeli army, in protest against the occupation. He was sentenced to 10 days in military prison. “I refused to join the army because it enforces a policy of inequality and destroys any hope for change" he stated

Do you still remember the claim that the children were killed by a misfired PIJ rocket? It’s always the propaganda tactics. First, accusing Palestinians, then admit it. No consequences of whatsoever. haaretz.com/israel-news/2022…

It is sick that Sierra Club chose to announce this apartheid tour just days after Israel attacked Gaza yet again causing the death of 49 Palestinians, including 17 children. Join us to demand @sierraclub cancel their apartheid tours. ===>>>>>bit.ly/RacistSierraClub

Natan Fitoussi wurde getötet weil ihn seine Kollegen für einen Palästinenser gehalten haben. Wird hier natürlich nicht erwähnt weil man sonst erklären müsste wieso IDF Soldaten einfach so auf Palästinenser:innen schießen dürfen.
Wir trauern um Natan Fitoussi. Der 20-jährige Soldat wurde gestern Abend auf tragische Weise durch IDF-Beschuss in der Nähe des Sicherheitszauns von Judäa und Samaria getötet. Wir sprechen seiner Familie unser tiefstes Beileid aus. Möge seine Erinnerung ein Segen sein.

Distorting the Holocaust to Boost the International Arms Trade If whitewashing Bulgaria’s history during the Second World War helps an Israeli arms company get a contract, who could possibly object? By Raz Segal and Amos Goldberg #ShutElbitDown thenation.com/article/world/…

Because they know they’ll never be held accountable. Just like the Israeli soldiers from 1948 who are now coming clean about the heinous war crimes they committed during the Nakba, all from the comfort of their homes on the land that they stole.
I assume this is the case in any combat but to me whats most interesting is the willingness of soldiers to testify as much.

A few days after this picture was taken, 15 years ago this evening, I gave my dad a hug, not knowing it was the last time. 15 years ago tomorrow he ended his life by suicide. No matter how worthless you feel, remember there is always someone who prefers you alive.

"Sinn Fein will cause return of emigration" says Leo Varadkar in the Mail on Sunday Hope Mary Lou hasn't choked on her cornflakes, especially after her recent promises to Irish in Oz who were forced to emigrate because of the 2008-2013 collapse & recently, the housing disaster

This kid has a bright future!
Oh God, I haven’t laughed so much in days! It’s sooooo cute! Reminds me of a friend’s son as he would take his father’s mobile and do exactly the same. Or it could be me venting anger at my energy supplier for yet again increasing my direct debit! 🙄

A new tunnel being opened for the benefit of Israeli settlers in Beit Jala, occupied #Palestine. The constructors are Spanish (Ossa) and part of the machinery is British (@JCBmachines). This infrastructure aims at expanding Israel’s colonial-settlements in #Bethlehem & #Hebron.
