Aid workers says that if there were no blockade and they had access to building materials
it would take 20 years just to rebuild the housing, never mind schools, hospitals, etc. Catastrophic destruction.

A couple days ago I finally watched the film 5 Broken Cameras (about non-violent resistance in the West Bank). You can stream it here. Incredible documentary.

I second this. Heartbreaking and enraging, but not without hope.

So this will come as no surprise to anybody in the UK, but Michael Gove is a colossal dick: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/201 ... a-conflict

Also, the New Zealand ambassador to Israel has been informed he is not going to be the New Zealand ambassador to Israel, for the crime of also being the New Zealand ambassador to Palestine. New Zealand's response has basically been "ok cool sorry bro".

This momentous news is buried in the depths of the UK News page on the BBC news website, by the way. Not on the front News page nor the World News page. It's a fucking disgrace.

Unfortunately, I don't know if that turd will be flushed this time either. Also, the way it works in Israel is that the winning party (and its leader who'll be the next Prime Minister) has to form a parliament with the other parties that received mandates in the elections. So what could happen is that one party could win the elections, but won't be able to form a parliament, so it'll go to the second best if they can form a parliament. The second best will most likely be Bibi, if he doesn't win.

That's what happened in 2009. Tzipi Livni won, but couldn't get enough of the winning parties to join here. Bibi did, so he won the elections without actually winning the elections.

It's been almost 20 years (when Rabin was murdered) since a prime minister held office for 4 years, until the end of his appointment. It's a bummer.

Israel turns off power to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the dead of winter

This is radical, though it’s not unusual and something we’ve come to expect. But turning off the electricity in the middle of winter as blizzards sweep across the Middle East is nothing short of sadistic. The Los Angeles Times reports Israel cut the power to more than 700,000 Palestinians in two of Palestine’s largest urban areas


Rebuilding Gaza would take a century if Israel keeps blockade

The rebuilding of homes, schools and hospitals in Gaza could take more than a century to complete unless an Israeli blockade restricting imports of construction materials into the Gaza Strip is lifted, aid agency Oxfam said on Thursday.


CNN: Has Israel lost the Democratic Party?

"A Gallup Poll out this week underscored Tennessee Rep. Cohen's point. It found that the percentage of Democrats sympathizing with Israelis over Palestinians fell 10 points over the past year, to 48%, which Gallup pollster Lydia Saad wrote was "possibly reflecting the tension between Obama and Netanyahu."

Meanwhile, Republican approval of Israel has continued to grow. Eighty-three percent of Republicans supported Israelis over Palestinians in the Gallup survey. That number compensated for the steep drop in support from Democrats so that overall support for Israel among Americans remained steady.
The Democratic dip aligns with what many Democrats say is a growing pro-Palestinian streak within the progressive wing of the party, which is calling for U.S. leaders to be tougher on Israel and offer stronger support for Palestinian statehood.


Apparently 30 Democrats have vowed to no-show Netanyahu's speech to Congress, with pressure on Elizabeth Warren to join them.

It's one thing to throw a fit because protocol was ignored.

It's a whole other one to vote to send less gun money.

You're not wrong, of course, about continued bipartisan military support for what Chomsky has termed the longest and most vicious military occupation in modern history. Democrats are unprincipled creeps, as a point of fact. But there are clearly broader dynamics of waning legitimacy in terms of Israel and the grip of the Israel lobby. The legitimacy of the Israeli state project (of racist settler-colonial occupation and genocide) has crumbled dramatically in recent years, thanks to Palestinian resistance, Israeli horrors, and dogged international solidarity.

There's a concept that radical political activists use to think through strategy that is relevant here: the spectrum of allies.

His refusal to meet is disappointing to those of us who have stood by Israel for decades


The Democrats are awful, but the broader dynamics at work signal a historic shift.

That spectrum of allies thing above is no joke.

I don't disagree with the opinion that a change is starting to take place.

However, this thing that is playing out in Congress feels like "politics" in spades.

If you're going to troll, you can do better than this "poor little Israel" routine I bet. Israel has the fourth largest military in the world and it spent two months this summer pounding an encaged refugee population, killing over 1,400 civilians (about half of them children, according to the UN).

It's a racist state carrying out the longest and most punitive military occupation of the modern era. The call is simply for that to end, in accordance with international law.

No. I'm not.

I'm generally too busy these days to read most PRF threads. Does the Black Pussy thread answer where this guy is from? He's obviously a deeply racist person. I'm just wondering where his embrace of a brutal apartheid state is rooted.

If I was going to guess based on what I posted, I would guess that "Gate To Wire" is the latest Krakabash secret disguise.
