"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 754, July 24, 2015: Israel releases a hero of the struggle against administrative detention

The Palestinian Khader Adnan was released by Israel after a long hunger strike in prison that has become the symbol of the struggle against administrative detention: imprisonment without charge or trial.

The 37-year-old had stopped eating to protest his administrative detention, a controversial provision inherited from the British Mandate on Palestine that allows Israeli authorities to hold suspects without charge or trial for periods of six months, renewable indefinitely. Currently, of the 5686 Palestinian prisoners Israel holds, 379 are in administrative detention, according to Israeli official figures.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 753, July 17, 2015: BDS Blacklist Part 2

Do “standing with Israel” and supporting a Jewish state really eclipse everything else, to the point that other moral stands are pushed aside?

I, like many others, read the Forward’s report on the website Canary Mission today — and shuddered. This organization documents, on its website, the names and photographs of pro-Palestinian activists around the country with links to their personal details, social media profiles, and print-out profiles for activists.


"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 752, July 10, 2015: BDS Blacklist : a Jewish Moral Failure Part 1

I, like many others, read the Forward’s report on the website Canary Mission today — and shuddered. This organization documents, on its website, the names and photographs of pro-Palestinian activists around the country with links to their personal details, social media profiles, and print-out profiles for activists.

The database, as stated on the webpage, “was created to expose individuals and groups that are anti-Freedom, anti-American and anti-Semitic in order to protect the public and our democratic values.”


"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 751, July 3, 2015: The French State Endeavors to suppress BDS

On June 9, at 1:30 am, French police stormed the home of Pierre Stambul, co-President of the Union of French Jews for Peace(Union juive française pour la paix, UJFP). The police used the protocol for neutralizing armed and entrenched terrorists: they broke down the doors, and before the peaceful inhabitants could awake, immediately searched the residence for weapons. There was obviously nothing to find, but the Raid called the national police who took Pierre away in handcuffs.

It is not known who is behind this outrage, but everything suggests that it was aimed at preventing Pierre Stambul from going through with a planned BDS event to take place the same evening in Toulouse organized by the UJFP and the BDS Committee (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, as Israel does not comply with international law).

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 750, June 26, 2015: Inaugural speech to Israeli diplomats by the new deputy foreign minister

Israel’s new deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely, delivered a defiant message to the international community, saying that Israel owes no apologies for its policies in the Holy Land and citing religious texts to back her belief that it belongs to the Jewish people. The speech by Tzipi Hotovely illustrates the influence of hardliners in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s new government, and the challenges he will face as he tries to persuade the world that he is serious about pursuing peace with the Palestinians. Hotovely, 36, is among a generation of young hardliners in Netanyahu’s Likud party who support West Bank settlement construction and oppose ceding captured land to the Palestinians.
