Like we earlier reported, they can no longer hide behind the claim that they supposedly know of no pressure on them to cancel; they are actively suppressing those making the call so they know.

BDS Galiza asked The Chemical Brothers in their concert in Santiago de Compostela to #CancelTelAviv

BDS Galiza took a stand against Israel, asking The Chemical Brothers in their concert in Santiago de Compostela to cancel the gig in Tel Aviv.
 
Israel takes advantage of culture using it as a form of propaganda to whitewash and justify its regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid over the oppressed Palestinian people.
 
This is no secret. Israeli government officials have summed up how Israel exploits culture in order to cover up its severe violations of international law. Take ACTION:
 
-Head on to The Chemical Brothers page and politely ask them to cancel their show in apartheid Israel, and tell them everything you know about the call to boycott.
 
We have ONE day left to convince the brothers to follow the path of justice!

Let’s keep up the pressure for them to do the right thing and not to entertain Apartheid!

IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY from November 10th 2016: Clashes in Beit Furik

On Thursday November 10th clashes erupted at the western entrance to Beit Furik in the Nablus district of occupied West Bank when Israel’s occupation forces attacked a youth march commemorating 12th anniversary of the death of president Yasser Arafat.
 
Illegal Israeli settlers had been loitering in the area for hours before the clashes, apparently waiting for the march to begin and supporting that part of the occupation forces which was wearing military uniforms.
 
Elsewhere Israel’s occupation forces attacked similar marches in Beitunia and Atara, wounding 5 youths and kidnapping five.

IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY from November 9th 2016: Shedded blood

According to an eyewitness, Muhammad Amr(32) was crossing a street in Huwwara on the occupied West Bank’s Nablus district yesterday, on Wednesday November 9th, when he was shot without any provocation by an Israel’s occupation forces’ soldier who ‘threw a knife’ beside him afterwards.
 
According to Israeli occupation, Amr ‘tried to stab’ Israel’s occupation forces’ soldier ‘with a screwdriver’ and the occupation soldier would have ‘reacted’ by shooting him with live fire.
 
As a result, Muhammad Amr was wounded in his pelvis and a hand.
 
At first Israel’s occupation forces blocked medical aid to Amr before a Nablus Red Crescent team was allowed to give him first aid at the scene of the incident, but Palestinian ambulance was not allowed to take him onto any nearby Palestinian hospital.
 
Eventually an illegally operating illegal Israeli settlers’ ambulance transported him to a hospital in Palestine 1948 where he is described as being in a ‘critical condition’.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY November 11th 2016: WHAT DONALD TRUMP PROMISED TO ISRAEL

1. The unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel is based upon shared values of democracy, freedom of speech, respect for minorities, cherishing life, and the opportunity for all citizens to pursue their dreams.

2. Israel is the state of the Jewish people, who have lived in that land for 3,500 years. The State of Israel was founded with courage and determination by great men and women against enormous odds and is an inspiration to people everywhere who value freedom and human dignity.

3. Israel is a staunch ally of the U.S. and a key partner in the global war against Islamic jihadism. Military cooperation and coordination between Israel and the U.S. must continue to grow.

4. The American people value our close friendship and alliance with Israel — culturally, religiously, and politically. While other nations have required U.S. troops to defend them, Israelis have always defended their own country by themselves and only ask for military equipment assistance and diplomatic support to do so. The U.S. does not need to nation-build in Israel or send troops to defend Israel.

5. The Memorandum of Understanding signed by the American and Israeli Governments is a good first step, but there is much more to be done. A Trump Administration will ensure that Israel receives maximum military, strategic and tactical cooperation from the United States, and the MOU will not limit the support that we give. Further, Congress will not be limited to give support greater than that provided by the MOU if it chooses to do so. Israel and the United States benefit tremendously from what each country brings to the table — the relationship is a two way street.

6. The U.S. should veto any United Nations votes that unfairly single out Israel and will work in international institutions and forums, including in our relations with the European Union, to oppose efforts to delegitimize Israel, impose discriminatory double standards against Israel, or to impose special labeling requirements on Israeli products or boycotts on Israeli goods.

7. The U.S. should cut off funds for the UN Human Rights Council, a body dominated by countries presently run by dictatorships that seems solely devoted to slandering the Jewish State. UNESCO’s attempt to disconnect the State of Israel from Jerusalem is a one-sided attempt to ignore Israel’s 3,000-year bond to its capital city, and is further evidence of the enormous anti-Israel bias of the United Nations.

8. The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic and take strong measures, both diplomatic and legislative, to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons or entities doing business in Israeli areas, in a discriminatory manner. The BDS movement is just another attempt by the Palestinians to avoid having to commit to a peaceful co-existence with Israel. The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected.

9. The Trump administration will ask the Justice Department to investigate coordinated attempts on college campuses to intimidate students who support Israel.

10. A two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians appears impossible as long as the Palestinians are unwilling to renounce violence against Israel or recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. Additionally, the Palestinians are divided between PA rule in the West Bank and Hamas rule in Gaza so there is not a united Palestinian people who could control a second state. Hamas is a US-designated terrorist organization that actively seeks Israel’s destruction. We will seek to assist the Israelis and the Palestinians in reaching a comprehensive and lasting peace, to be freely and fairly negotiated between those living in the region.

11. The Palestinian leadership, including the PA, has undermined any chance for peace with Israel by raising generations of Palestinian children on an educational program of hatred of Israel and Jews. The larger Palestinian society is regularly taught such hatred on Palestinian television, in the Palestinian press, in entertainment media, and in political and religious communications. The two major Palestinian political parties — Hamas and Fatah — regularly promote anti-Semitism and jihad.

13. The U.S. cannot support the creation of a new state where terrorism is financially incentivized, terrorists are celebrated by political parties and government institutions, and the corrupt diversion of foreign aid is rampant. The U.S. should not support the creation of a state that forbids the presence of Christian or Jewish citizens, or that discriminates against people on the basis of religion.

14. The U.S. should support direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians without preconditions, and will oppose all Palestinian, European and other efforts to bypass direct negotiations between parties in favor of an imposed settlement. Any solutions imposed on Israel by outside parties including by the United Nations Security Council, should be opposed. We support Israel’s right and obligation to defend itself against terror attacks upon its people and against alternative forms of warfare being waged upon it legally, economically, culturally, and otherwise.

15. Israel’s maintenance of defensible borders that preserve peace and promote stability in the region is a necessity. Pressure should not be put on Israel to withdraw to borders that make attacks and conflict more likely.

16. The U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state and Mr. Trump’s Administration will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

17. Despite the Iran Nuclear deal in 2015, the U.S. State Department recently designated Iran, yet again, as the leading state sponsor of terrorism — putting the Middle East particularly, but the whole world at risk by financing, arming, and training terrorist groups operating around the world including Hamas, Hezbollah, and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. must counteract Iran’s ongoing violations of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action regarding Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons and their noncompliance with past and present sanctions, as well as the agreements they signed, and implement tough, new sanctions when needed to protect the world and Iran’s neighbors from its continuing nuclear and non-nuclear threats.”

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY November 10th 2016: Trump a great hope for illegal Israeli settlers from Maryland

American-Israeli settlers told The Telegraph in September that they hoped Mr Trump would win and publicly support Israel’s settlement programme.
 
“It’s our shot,” Carol Wilbur, a 50-year-old physical therapist [and Zumba dance teacher] and mother of five who moved to the Karnei Shomron settlement in 2000 from her home in Maryland.
 
“We’ve never seen any glimmer of anything like that until Trump.”
 
 
100 000 citizens of the United States live as illegal Israeli settlers in Palestine’s occupied East Jerusalem and West Bank, but they (like US companies role in profiteering from the occupation) can never be mentioned as one of the reasons why United States government can’t (aka refuses) to achieve a deal in the endless peace talks successive US administrations have orchestrated.
