Israeli Christian, Druze communities denounce ‘Jewish nation-state’ law

“On Sunday, the Catholic Church in the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds condemned the ‘nation-state’ law that cleared the Israeli parliament on July 19, The Times of Israel reported.

The Latin Patriarchate, which represents the Roman Catholic Church, said in a statement, ‘The law fails to provide any constitutional guarantees for the rights of the indigenous and other minorities living in the country.’

‘Palestinian citizens of Israel, constituting 20 percent are flagrantly excluded from the law,’ it added, citing an example.

‘It is beyond conception that a law with constitutional effect ignores an entire segment of the population as if its members never existed,’ the church said. ‘It sends an unequivocal signal to the Palestinian citizens of Israel, to the effect that in this country they are not at home.’

The legislation also violated international laws, the church said, calling on Christians to rise in protest against the legislation.”

“The law prioritizes ‘Jewish’ values over democratic ones, declares al-Quds the ‘capital’ of Israel, and sets Hebrew as the official language, relegating Arabic from an official language to one with ‘special status.’”

@AuthenticRabbis: Was asked now; If they are anti Zionist why are they in Israel? Well, I can say this, we used to live in peace & harmony in Palestine. The Zionists -we oppose from day one- messed it up. READ: truetorahjews.org/rabbibkaplan. We pray for a peaceful end to the Israeli Zionist Government.

Israeli 'Massacre' in Gaza Paid for by the US - Sputnik International

“On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker and John Kiriakou are joined by Daoud Kuttab, an award-winning Palestinian journalist, and Ali Abunimah, the co-founder of The Electronic Intifada and author of the book The Battle for Justice in Palestine.”

“Today is Nakba Day, or Yawm an-Nakba, the ‘Day of Catastrophe,’ commemorated on May 15, the day after Israel's declaration of independence. The day commemorates the estimated 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were expelled and the hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages that were depopulated or destroyed. These refugees and their descendants now number more than 2 million. At least 60 Palestinians were killed yesterday and thousands wounded in demonstrations in Gaza over Nakba Day. What were the global reactions to this ‘massacre’?”

Here is a photo of a young Stephen Hawking (with the canes) in London marching against the war in Vietnam in 1969.

More than 30 years later he spoke out fervently against the war in Iraq. He also joined the BDS movement against Israel, calling the situation “like that in South Africa before 1990. It cannot continue.”

He wasn’t just one of the most brilliant minds of our times, he was also someone with a social conscience and critical of capitalism, saying:

“If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.”

Rest in power, Stephen Hawking.

“Totalitarianism and everyone should be outraged. But you are not. You cooperate in your own oppression with your silence because you don't think that this has anything to do with you.” — @ajamubaraka
