UC Berkeley student president Connor Landgraf has announced that he will not veto the divestment bill that bill passed last week that divests ASUC funds from companies affiliated with the Israeli military and encourages the UC system to do the same.
State Dept human rights report on Israel: ‘most significant human rights problems during the year were terrorist attacks against civilians; institutional and societal discrimination against Arab citizens’

Updated: Refusing exile: Palestinian prisoner Samer Al-Issawi ending hunger strike in ‘victory’ deal
After refusing food for more than 265 days legendary Palestinian Hunger Striker Samer Al-Issawi has struck a deal with Israeli military prosecutors described by his lawyer, Jawad Bulous, as “a big victory for Samer.”

Miko Peled describes entering Gaza by tunnel.
Thousands demonstrated in Gaza this morning, marching and rallying to mark the fortieth Palestinian Prisoners’ Day.
The Australian reports on a bizarre press conference that took place in Jerusalem about the findings of UNICEF’s report. The press conference was greeted enthusiastically by journalists but the manner in which it was conducted indicates a fix was on to stifle the truth of the report.
His body is fraught with countless bullets, his heart beats to sound an alarm for his exceptionally grave health condition, and his plastic stomach starves for the sake of Palestine’s dignity. Sitting in his wheelchair and desiring life, Palestinian detainee Mansoor Mowqeda from Salfit has fought in the battle of empty stomachs since April 1, 2013, hoping to change the bitter reality healthy people cannot.
Contemporary formations of Zionism cannot accomplish this task. Butler believes a Jew “cannot be a Zionist and struggle for a just end to colonial subjugation.” From here she is off and running. The question is to where?
Al Haq: As Palestinians mark an emotional Prisoner’s Day, the Israeli authorities are currently coercing Samer al-‘Issawi to accept a deal that would see him deported to a United Nations (UN) Member State in exchange for ending his hunger strike. Samer has repeatedly refused to accept any such deal, which constitutes a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention and therefore qualifies as one of the most serious war crimes. As an organisation dedicated to the promotion and protection of Palestinian human rights, Al-Haq would like to take the opportunity of Palestinian Prisoners’ Day to condemn, in the strongest terms, Israel’s repeated use of deportation rather than addressing the legitimate concerns of Palestinian prisoners.
April 17 is Palestinian Prisoners’ Day. The Center for Political and Development Studies explains the day is about “expressing the continuity of struggle to liberate detainees in the occupation jails. It’s a day of freedom. A day of refusing injustice, chains, and the dominance of occupiers over their life and dignity.”

The Israeli attack on the al-Dalou family home killed 12 people, and instantly became a grim symbol of Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense. But the Israeli military will not open a criminal investigation, according to a report in Haaretz. The decision to not open an investigation comes despite the fact that Israel repeatedly changed its story on who they were targeting in the strike.
What a Jewish world we live in. Soon we will celebrate the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising – it was during Passover no less – and the debate is about the right of Palestinians to resist Israeli occupation – with stones?
Oberlin Students and Alumni urge Ben & Jerry’s to End Their Complicity in Israel’s Occupation and Illegal Settlements

A cartoon illustrating one line from President Obama’s recent speech to Israeli students.
I’ve heard this already a couple times on my book tour: “Hey, we shouldn’t boycott settlement goods. It’ll hurt job prospects for Palestinians!” An excellent article in the Electronic Intifada picked up this theme and thoroughly demolished this ridiculous argument.
