Israel’s economy minister Naftali Bennett, the leader of the right-wing party “The Jewish Home”, published an article in the New York Times in which he buried the concept of a “two-state solution” as a way out of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Bennett does not belong to the radical Zionist fringe. Although he is an advocate of extremist colonial Zionist ideas, he is considered to be the successor of Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu. In his Op-ED, Bennett has made a mockery of the policy of the last 20 years, which was connected to the Oslo Accords and the two-state solution. His words won’t bear fruit right now, but they might be in the future.

San Francisco Bay Area Palestine activists have declared their first victory in attempting to prevent the offloading of an Israeli cargo vessel at the Oakland Port. Originally planning to show up at 5:00 am Saturday morning to block the ship, activists sent word out late last night that the meeting time had been moved up  to 3:00pm, as the ship had delayed its arrival at Oakland in an apparent attempt to avoid the protest.

Activist Mohamed Shehk told The Electronic Intifada that the organizers have been tracking the vessel Zim Piraeus, and realized last night that it had stopped before reaching its Oakland destination, spending the night at sea.

“This delay is seen as a victory for us. It shows how much Zim is trying to avoid our protest, and it shows how effective we can be when we can organize these types of actions,” Shehk said.

Zionist propaganda on social media is being backed up by millions of dollars

I want to send a quick reminder to everyone that the Zionist propaganda on social media is being backed up by millions of dollars daily for advertisements. Each tweet that the IDF or Israeli president tweet, gets promoted and advertised. This indicates how desperate they are to reach out to more people with bias and fabricated information to gain sympathy and support. Now, we do not have a government to fund advertising, nor do we have millions of dollars to back up our posts. But we do have humans with dignity who decided to speak and share the truth. And with full confidence we rely on God, then them. The awareness that social media raised the past 2 weeks shocked the world. So please continue supporting the activists you follow.

Thank you for your time.
