Ukrainian Jews to emigrate to Israel

About 2,500 Ukrainian Jews have asked to emigrate to Israel “immediately” following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, using a special hotline set up by an Israeli non-profit organisation on Thursday.

The Jewish Agency said the first group of Ukrainian immigrants to Israel crossed into Poland in the early hours of Sunday.

In anticipation of a spike in requests in the coming days, the agency has said it would open six document-processing stations at the Ukrainian border crossing points with Poland, Moldova, Romania, and Hungary to accommodate the demand.

In recent decades, the largest number of immigrants to Israel have come from Ukraine and Russia, with about 3,100 Ukrainians emigrating to Israel in 2021.

About 80 percent of the immigrants from Ukraine landing in Israel in recent years have been coming via the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews Fellowship, which pays for their flights and provides them with small stipends.

Israel and Turkey hail new era in relations, but divisions remain

The countries agree to rebuild their relationship after years of tensions, as Isaac Herzog became the first Israeli president to visit Turkey in 14 years.

Israel and Turkey have announced a new era in relations following more than a decade of diplomatic rupture, as Israeli President Isaac Herzog made a landmark visit to the Turkish capital, Ankara.

Herzog’s Turkey trip, which included talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday, was the first by an Israeli president since 2007, when the late Shimon Peres addressed the Turkish parliament.

Appearing before cameras following the talks, Erdogan described Israeli president’s visit as “historic” and “a turning point” in Turkish-Israeli relations. He said Turkey was ready to cooperate with Israel in the energy sector, adding that the Turkish foreign and energy ministers would soon visit Israel for more talks on increased cooperation.

“Our common goal is to revitalise political dialogue between our countries based on common interests and respect for mutual sensitivities,” Erdogan said

The visit was a “very important moment for the relations between our countries, and a great honour for the two of us to lay the foundations of developing friendly relations between our countries and nations, and to build bridges essential to us all”, Herzog said in a statement in Hebrew.

Both leaders conceded, however, that differences remain — not least on the issue of the Palestinians.

“We expressed the importance we attach to reducing tensions in the region and preserving the vision of a two-state solution,” Erdogan said. “I underlined the importance we attach to the historical status of Jerusalem and the preservation of the religious identity and sanctity of Masjid Aqsa,” the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s historic Old City.

Israel bans family reunification

Israel's Knesset passed a law effectively barring Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza who are married to Palestinian citizens of Israel from gaining citizenship ora residency in Israel, according to the Palestinian Information Centre.

The Knesset approved the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law (Temporary Order), 2022, by a 45-15 majority vote yestersday.

While Israel claimed the law was passed for security reasons, it is believed the law was passed on racist grounds to prevent Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza who marry Palestinians or Israeli Jews from becoming Israeli citizens in order to maintain a Jewish majority in Israel.

The new temporary order explicitly affirms that its purpose is to ensure a Jewish demographic majority. The law also prohibits the entry of Arabs from countries "hostile" to Israel, such as Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran, for family reunification purposes.

Rights groups have long warned of the seriousness of the law, which the Israeli government claims was enacted for security reasons. Palestinians consider the law racist.

Double standards on Ukraine coverage

The World’s #1 Squash player, Egypt’s Ali Farag calls out double standards on Ukraine coverage:

“We’ve never been allowed to speak about politics in sports, but all of a sudden now it’s allowed…the Palestinians have been going through that for the past 74 years...we can talk about Ukraine, we can talk about Palestine.”

Israel's ban on family reunification

Israel is doubling down on its apartheid rule over Palestinians while it and its international accomplices attempt to fend off the label.

This week, Israel reinstated a ban on Palestinian family unification as part of its demographic engineering efforts to ensure a Jewish majority in the territory of historic Palestine.

Adalah, a group that advocates for the rights of Palestinians in Israel, said that the legislation is “one of the most racist and discriminatory laws in the world, and must immediately be repealed.”

The “Citizenship and Entry into Israel” order prohibits Israel’s interior minister from granting residency or citizenship to Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza who marry citizens of Israel.

According to Adalah, which will challenge the law at Israel’s high court, “it also bans unification between a citizen or resident of Israel with spouses from ‘enemy states,’ including Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Iran.”

Adalah added that “UN human rights bodies have called on Israel to revoke the ban on Palestinian family unification as it violates international law.”

Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, has renewed the temporary order banning family unification 21 times over the past 18 years, the rights group added.

However, unlike in the past, the current version of the law “explicitly states that its purpose is to ensure a Jewish demographic majority,” Adalah said.

Israeli lawmakers and Ayelet Shaked, the state’s interior minister, have said that the legislation is intended to prevent Palestinians from gradually returning to their homeland.

Honouring Rachel Corrie

Rachel Corrie was killed on March 16, 2003 while staging a peaceful protest to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.

#RachelCorrie became one of the top trending topics on Twitter on her death anniversary.

Born in Olympia, Washington, Corrie dedicated her life to human rights, defending Palestinian rights in particular.

She was the youngest of three children of Craig and Cindy Corrie, who described their family as "average American, politically liberal, economically conservative, middle class".

Corrie was known for her love for peace and defending Palestinian rights, frequently exposing violations by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In 2003, she went to Gaza for her senior-year college assignment; to connect her hometown with Rafah, as part of a sister cities project.

During her stay, she engaged with members of the International Solidarity Movement, a pro-Palestinian NGO.

On March 16, Corrie defied an Israeli bulldozer in hopes of stopping it from demolishing the home of a Palestinian family.

Corrie believed that her western features and blonde hair would deter the bulldozer, but she was wrong.

She was crushed to death when the Israeli bulldozer driver ran her over repeatedly, according to eye witnesses.

Aftermath of her death

The people of Gaza described her as a “martyr” and staged a massive funeral for their American friend.

No U.S. senator attended her funeral.

An Israeli investigation into her death concluded that it was an accident.

Neither the international community nor Corrie's parents have bought the Israeli explanation.

In 2005, Corrie's parents filed a civil lawsuit against Israel, asserting that she had either been intentionally killed or that the soldiers had showed criminal negligence.

They sued for a symbolic one U.S. dollar in damages.

An Israeli court rejected the lawsuit in 2012 ruling that the Israeli government was not responsible for her death.

The ruling was slammed by human rights organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, as well as activists.

Corrie has since been one of the symbols of the Palestinian cause.

An Irish aid ship that set out for Gaza in 2010 named itself after Rachel and her story has been told in several documentary films portraying the plight of Palestinians.

Former Israeli politician says anti-Semitism accusation a "trick" to deflect criticism of Israel

On August 14, 2002, Amy Goodman interviewed former Israeli Minister of Education Shulamit Aloni on the radio and television program Democracy Now.

Halalified YouTube Audio

www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BEVLD6YHsc
TRANSCRIPT

Amy Goodman: Often when there is dissent expressed in the United States against policies of the Israeli government, people here are called anti-Semitic. What is your response to that as an Israeli Jew?

Shulamit Aloni: Well, it’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country people are criticizing Israel, then they are anti-Semitic. And the organization is strong, and has a lot of money, and the ties between Israel and the American Jewish establishment are very strong and they are strong in this country, as you know. And they have power, which is okay. They are talented people and they have power and money, and the media and other things, and their attitude is “Israel, my country right or wrong,” identification. And they are not ready to hear criticism. And it’s very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli government as anti-Semitic, and to bring up the Holocaust, and the suffering of the Jewish people, and that is justify everything we do to the Palestinians.

Apartheid Avenue: Amnesty activists rename London street housing Israeli embassy



The road leading up to the Israeli embassy in the British capital London has been renamed to "Apartheid Avenue" by activists from Amnesty International, to mark Israeli Apartheid Week, according to a tweet by Kristyan Benedict, a campaign manager for the global rights group.

Benedict tweeted an image of a renamed street sign at the entrance to Kensington Palace Gardens in London, which houses the Israeli embassy.

The sign was erected as part of a film shoot to mark Israeli Apartheid Week, when pro-Palestinian activists rally outside the embassy to highlight Israel’s discriminatory tactics. Activists say these routinely involve human rights abuses against Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip.

“Racist systems like apartheid aren’t relics of the past but the reality for millions of Palestinians,” tweeted Amnesty International alongside a teaser for the upcoming film.

Israeli forces have displaced thousands of Palestinian families from their homes since the country's creation in 1948 and continue to occupy the West Bank and besiege the Gaza Strip.

Israel has built hundreds of illegal settlements on Palestinian land, and its occupying forces routinely detain and violate the rights of Palestinians.

Amnesty International published a report earlier this year calling for Israel to be prosecuted for its crimes at the International Criminal Court, adding that "Israel’s cruel policies of segregation, dispossession, and exclusion across all territories under its control clearly amount to apartheid."

Apartheid Israel

UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the occupied Palestinian territories Michael Lynk is the latest human rights expert to declare Israel an Apartheid state.

In a 19-page report submitted to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Tuesday, Lynk said that the situation in the occupied Palestinian Territory (oPt) has moved beyond occupation and annexation, and now amounts to the crime of apartheid.

“The political system of entrenched rule in the occupied Palestinian territory which endows one racial-national-ethnic group with substantial rights, benefits and privileges while intentionally subjecting another group to live behind walls, checkpoints and under a permanent military rule…satisfies the prevailing evidentiary standard for the existence of apartheid,” the report said.

Another sportsperson speaks up

Héctor Bellerín, Spanish professional footballer who plays club Real Betis, has slammed hypocrisy and double standards in the Ukraine crisis coverage, asking why people are more concerned about the Ukrainian invasion when atrocities have been occurring in Yemen and Palestine for years.

“It's complicated to see that we are more interested in this war in Ukraine than others. The war in Palestine has been completely silenced. In Yemen, in Iraq too. Russia was excluded from the World Cup… Other countries have done the same as them for years.”

“It's racist to have turned a blind eye to other conflicts and now to have this position on Ukraine. It also reflects a lack of empathy for the number of lives lost without the same importance being attached to it.”

ApartheidIsrael

from @mondoweiss UN Special Rapporteur says Israel is committing 'pitiless' apartheid in new report

A new UN Human Rights Council report is the latest in a series by international and Israeli groups accusing Israel of the crime of apartheid. "There are pitiless features of Israel’s ‘apartness’ rule in the occupied Palestinian territory that were not practiced in southern Africa, such as segregated highways, high walls and extensive checkpoints, a barricaded population, missile strikes and tank shelling of a civilian population, and the abandonment of the Palestinians’ social welfare to the international community,” Michael Lynk's report said. “With the eyes of the international community wide open, Israel has imposed upon Palestine an apartheid reality in a post-apartheid world.”
