Link: Rasmea Odeh’s silenced statement to Detroit federal court + hearing report from Rasmea Defense Committee

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: On Thursday, August 17th, Judge Gershwin Drain again violated the rights of Palestinian-American icon Rasmea Odeh, this time by not allowing her to read her entire statement to the court. Forced to stop reading her statement, Rasmea ad-libbed: “I’m not a terrorist and my people are not terrorists. [The Israeli military] tortured me. They raped me. They destroyed my house…I will raise my voice to say this: we have the right to struggle for our country.” Read Rasmea’s full statement to...

Link: Pourquoi la droite israélienne ne peut pas condamner les néo-nazis de Charlottesville – Pour la Palestine

De Ly Myriam posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: Il a fallu trois jours au Premier ministre israélien Benjamin Netanyahou pour réagir au meurtre de Charlottesville – plus qu’il n’en fallut à Trump. Sa réaction fut tiède, déclarant seulement qu’il était “indigné par les manifestations d’antisémitisme, de néo-nazisme et de racisme”, ajoutant que tout le monde “devrait s’opposer à cette haine”. Son fils, Yaïr Netanyahou (26 ans), en revanche, n’a pas hésité à adopter sur son compte Facebook une position plut... (1 like)

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: Een verontrustende ontwikkeling in Israel is dat ook kritische stemmen vanuit de joodse gemeenschap steeds vaker de mond wordt gesnoerd. Bij wetenschappers was dat al langer gaande. Maar de culturele en journalistieke wereld komt nu in toenemende mate ook aan de beurt. De gerespecteerde journalist David Sheen ligt onder vuur. Veel journalisten(organisaties) hebben al hun solidariteit met Sheen betuigd. Hieronder volgt de vertaling van de oproep van journalisten aan collega’s om zich solidair t...

Link: Must-read Classics by Arab Women Writers: Short Stories by Samira Azzam

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: Born in Acre, according to a Jadaliyya profile, Azzam began working as a schoolteacher at the age of 16 and began publishing in the 1940s in the newspaper Palestine under the alias “Coastal Girl.” She was forced to flee in 1948 and, after that, moved between Baghdad and Beirut. As Joseph Farag writes in “Samira Azzam’s ‘Man and His Alarm Clock,’” Azzam “would emerge as one of the first and pre-eminent Palestinian literary voices in the wake of the Nakba of 1948.” (2 likes)

Link: How to be a Palestinian supermom

18 aug 2017 - 01:57
Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: Manal Tamimi has been going to these protests for as long as she can remember. To her, to be a Palestinian parent is to be an activist. It's impossible to separate the two roles. Taking care of her children often involves protecting them from Israeli soldiers and settlers. "Ninety percent of Palestinian mothers experience, at one point in their lives, to have one of their children either be injured or arrested," she said. (4 likes, 1 comment)

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: Toch kwam Muhammad Salim al-Sayis wél in het nieuws. Hij stierf namelijk aan de gevolgen van een bacteriële infectie. Die bacterie liep hij vermoedelijk tien dagen eerder op bij het zwemmen in zee voor de kust van Gaza. Dat is het angstaanjagende aan het bericht: er vallen doden door de vervuiling van het kustwater. Dat was voorspeld. Nu gebeurt het ook.

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: For the sake of this article, I won’t speak about the violations committed by the state of Israel — the violations so many “feminists” have normalized and even supported. But I will note that I consider Zionism and feminism to be diametrically opposed. Zionism claims that the rightful homeland of the Jewish people is in Palestine — a place millions of indigenous Palestinians have called home for centuries — and while it is normalized within some pockets of feminism, it contradicts th...

Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: In what doctors deemed to be the first death due to Gaza’s sea pollution, five year-old Salem Al-Saiyis passed away on July 29 after suffering from Ekiri Syndrome, a disease caused by Shigella bacteria, which is commonly transmitted through a fecal-oral route. Al-Saiyis first developed symptoms on July 19 after he had gone swimming with his family at the Shaykh Ajlin beach, west of Gaza. Although Al-Saiyis’ older siblings also developed mild symptoms and have since been treated, the disease ... (2 likes)

Link: Israël sloopt opnieuw met Europees geld gebouwde Palestijnse woningen

17 aug 2017 - 23:58
Marie Groffils posted a link to Belgium for Palestine's wall: De EU liet bij monde van voorlichter Shadi Othman een scherp protest tegen de sloop horen. Othman herinnerde eraan dat de EU Israël herhaaldelijk heeft gemaand zijn offensief tegen Europese hulpprojecten te staken. Uit gegevens van de EU blijkt dat Israël in 2016 voor bijna 560 duizend euro aan projecten van de EU en de lidstaten vernielde. Schadevergoeding bleef uit en werd ook niet door Europa geëist.
