US police violence: the Israeli connection

Partners in Crime

لماذا غزة؟ Why Gaza?

Anyone questioning the horrific instances of police shootings in the U.S. (most recently in Dallas when a white police officer shot and killed a black man in his own apartment), must be asking themselves “why?”  Why is law enforcement trigger happy, especially with people of color? Why is law enforcement often dressed in military garb, brandishing military-style weapons, and using excessive force with peaceful protesters?

If you don’t know what I’m talking about —- you are undoubtedly white and living in an upscale neighborhood.

Mapping police violence in the U.S. provides a startling visual, but the numbers alone are nauseating. The Washington Post’s searchable database shows that as of August 30, 2018, the police have killed 707 people. And the stats clearly demonstrate that U.S. law enforcement has a much higher number of police shootings compared to their peers in other countries.  Much higher. …

Israel Isn’t an “Apartheid State.” It’s Worse Than That.

Dr. Considine's Blog

Palestine

U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro recently unleashed harsh criticism against Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land, particularly in the West Bank. Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, Shapiro said:

Too much Israel vigilantism in the West Bank goes unchecked… there is a lack of thorough investigations… at time it seems Israel has two standards of adherence to rule of law in the West Bank – one for Israelis and one for Palestinians.

In short, Shapiro calls Israel an Apartheid state. The term Apartheid comes from the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid, ratified by United Nations General Assembly resolution 3068 (XXVIII) of 30 November 1973. From the Convention:

For the purpose of the present Convention, the term “the crime of apartheid”, which shall include similar policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practised in southern Africa, shall apply…

Artists respond to Nick Cave’s comments

#BDS israHELL, #Boycott the rapacious entity

Artists for Palestine UK

Nick Cave has held a press conference in Israel, in which he explained he ‘decided to play in Israel to stand up to ‘anyone who tries to censor and silence musicians’According to the NME: The musician explained that his change in attitude came about when Brian Eno asked him to a sign a list called Artists For Palestine three years ago. “On a very intuitive level, [I] did not want to sign it,” he said. “There was something that stunk to me about that list.”

“So after a lot of thought and consideration I rang up my people and said, ‘We’re doing an European tour and Israel.’ Because it suddenly became very important to me to make a stand against those people who are trying to shut down musicians, to bully musicians, to censor musicians, and to silence musicians. At the end of the day, there’s maybe two reason…

Artists slam Israel’s planned occupation of London’s Roundhouse

#israelTerrorist

Artists for Palestine UK

Roger Waters, Ken Loach, Caryl Churchill and Thurston Moore are among many leading artists calling for London’s celebrated Roundhouse to cancel its involvement with a festival designed to promote Israel as a progressive and liberal destination with a ‘glittering’ capital city.

TLV in LDN is supposedly a celebration of culture, but its director Marc Worth has revealed in an interview that the festival is the dream child of Israel’s diplomatic mission in the UK, and was conceived in response to the growing movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS). BDS seeks to highlight Israel’s systemic violation of Palestinian human, civil and political rights.

Grassroots campaign LDN against Apartheid is calling for the capital’s cultural venues to shun the Israeli Embassy’s branding effort. Artists for Palestine UK echoes this call. We  have spoken to a number of London artists who been appalled by news of  the Roundhouse’s close association with  an event designed to…

Know Your Zionist Enemy – Arnon Milchan – Hollywood Producer

#israelTerrorist

Rebel Voice

Image result for Arnon Milchan free to use image  Arnon Milchan

Many commentators have mentioned the high instance of pro-Israeli propaganda that emanates from Hollywood. Detractors of the struggle for Palestine label such remarks as ‘conspiracy theories’ in an effort to denounce any truthful revelations that might harm Israel. Yet, when facts are presented, it becomes impossible for Zionists to credibly deny the truth.

When Marlon Brando once, inaccurately, stated, “Hollywood is run by Jews’ he was reacting in a manner that was not thought through properly. His use of the term ‘Jews’ was wholly inappropriate. However, if Brando had, instead, replaced the word ‘Jews’ with that of ‘Zionists’ then he would have been much closer to the money.

The following piece concerns one such Zionist who also just happens to be Jewish. His ethnic identity (real or imagined – see Rebel Voice article, Who Is A Jew?) is irrelevant. What is of great import is his aggressive…

Hebron governor deplores Israeli army order expanding settlers’ municipal powers

Settlers under police protection in Hebron

Israeli settlers tour Hebron’s Old City under Israeli army protection as Palestinian movement is severely affected. June 25, 2016

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Governor of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron Kamel Hamid condemned a recent Israeli army decision to expand municipal powers in Hebron to Israeli settlers that live illegally in the city, reportedly describing the move as “the most dangerous since 1967.”

Hamid told Palestinian Authority-owned radio station Voice of Palestine that the decision would serve to further strengthen Israeli control in Hebron while undermining the PA, in a city where Palestinians already contend with the highest concentration of military checkpoints in the West Bank and are surrounded by hundreds of notoriously aggressive settlers living under the protection of the Israeli army.
“The order jeopardizes any political settlement in the area, which stands in contradiction with the peace process and the establishment of a Palestinian state,” Hamid…
