I live in the US, in Arkansas. I am a Christian. My husband grew up in Iran, and was raised as a Muslim. I am an attorney. I began closely following the Israeli Palestinian Conflict, after the 2006 Israel Lebanon War. I support an end to the human rights abuses and illegal Occupation.

  • Horrifying details continue to emerge of massacre in Khuza'a
    • Israel has a pattern of bombing UNRWA facilities, but rather than confront condemnation and punishment for these war crimes, we see them always being excused, or others blamed or simply not punished. This continuing impunity Israel enjoys when she commits war crimes is the very reason Israel continues blatantly committing war crimes. And another point, choosing to engage in bombing in such a densely populated civilian area is arguably itself a war crime, because the operation perhaps cannot be carried out in that environment (which I note Israel created, as two thirds of the population are people ethnically cleansed from their homes elsewhere in Palestine) without violating the rules of war.

      Israel is the Occupier and owes obligations to protect the civilian population in Gaza, not commit genocide against this population of people whose lands she occupies.

  • Palestinian teen abducted from East Jerusalem and killed in suspected revenge attack
    • What I am surprised by is I already have found a New York Times article discussing the murder of the Palestinian teenager. USMSM coverage.

      I think times are certainly changing.

      How are these settlers going to be controlled? It really is quiet frightening thinking about that. There is so much self righteousness and sense of entitlement.

  • Israel needs no proof to kill Palestinians for teens' death, Israeli colonel says
    • Sherri Munnerlyn July 1, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      When has a Zionist ever needed a reason for killing a non Jew? The authority lies in the essence of simply being a Zionist. How dare that authority be questioned? This arrogant Zionist way of thinking that places the value of the life of a Jew on a pedestal above all other human life explains much.

  • Reform Jewish leader offers alternative to Presbyterian divestment: meet Netanyahu
    • Why would anyone with a soul want a meeting with a soulless war criminal child killing Zionist like Benjamin Netanyahu? Such an offer alone should garner support for votes for divestment. The thought makes me want to puke, it is like contemplating a meeting with Satan.

  • Presbyterian Church takes step towards divesting from Israeli military-linked companies
    • I am reading Dr Jerry Pillay will speak at a luncheon today at noon on the issue of Apartheid in Palestine.

      Is anyone aware whether any website will make this speech available to be listened to by the public?

      I read of a visit to Palestine previously by Dr. Pillay and others in the article referenced below :

      "We did not expect the extent to which Israel violates international laws to oppress the Palestinian people.  Our exposure to East Jerusalem and the West Bank was overwhelming, one which traumatised us.  However, even though we experienced that the Palestinians live in open-air prisons, they were still able to inspire us with their dignity and their commitment for a just peace based on human dignity for both themselves and the Israelis.  “We want more than human rights,” they told us, “we want our human dignity and reconciliation”."

  • Ohio State Hillel member calls Desmond Tutu a 'neo Nazi' for criticizing Israel
    • It is not only black South Africans who speak out against Apartheid in Israel.

      I was just listening to this you tube video and hearing white Jewish South African Denis Goldberg speak out against Apartheid in Israel. He endured Apartheid in South Africa and was imprisoned as a member of the ANC 22 years for his role in opposing Apartheid in South Africa.

      Watch "Former ANC Rivonia Trialist, Denis Goldberg speak…" on YouTube

      Who is better to speak out against Apartheid today then those who have lived under Apartheid, whatever their skin color or ethnicity may be, be it Desmond Tutu or Denis Goldberg.

  • Congress is next battleground over boycott of Israel
    • The fact BDS is being so widely discussed by American MSM right now is itself a BDS success story. Just getting BDS where it is right now evidences a meaningful shift in the future of this movement. I keep reading these phrases, tipping point, BDS mainstream, in article after article. Now, we just have to keep being creative and creatively growing this BDS Movement. Remember Apartheid in South Africa was defeated by popular resistance + BDS. I think the BDS side of it is what soundly puts out there the human nature of all of these egregious human rights abuses and clear violations of international law. I was just reading a heartbreaking article of children with terminal illnesses dying in Gaza, living under siege. Just getting people outside there to help them is a struggle, and the Occupation isolates the people in Gaza and seeks to prevent their stories from being told.
