Thank you for posting and sharing this song for Gaza, Dandelion.

It is terribly sad, what has happened there, and continues, every day.
"We shall overcome.." some day! I hopoe it will be soon.
Free Palestine!!! End the Israel blockade, and all U.S. aid to ISRAEL, NOW.
Why does the U.S. government give American tax dollars in the billions, year after year, to an oppressive state, that discriminates, oppresses, and commits ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, to push them off, out of their homes, lands and farms???

AIPAC and the Israeli lobby, and the Israeli government assumes the U.S. CAN BE MADE TO GIVE- and give.. while it continues annexing Palestinian lands, committing atrocities in Gaza, and Palestinians are shut, enclosed in a tiny area, and borders controlled by Israel, and free movement and imports are blocked, even for life and death and medical care/emergencies.
This is an outrage, vile, disgusting AND SHAMEFUL.

End the illegal occupation, and settlement expansion. Boycott Israel.

BDS, yes! Boycott, Divestment and sanctions - Israel is not to be treated differently than other countries, where crimes against humanity are, and have been, committed.

Never again, means never again, for anyone..

It must stop!! World - this is genocide.

Jess asked: Why does the U.S. government give American tax dollars in the billions, year after year, to an oppressive state, that discriminates, oppresses, and commits ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, to push them off, out of their homes, lands and farms???

Because this is something the American Govt. does. It did and still continues to do so to the American Indians. Until the children in school begin to learn the REAL truth about this and we as a people in general begin the acknowledgement of what took place and is still happening, just think of Standing Rock for a recent example.

That the mainstream media ignored it until the Veterans went there; before that the only coverage was with Independent photojournalist and youtube shares. When we don't recognize what is going on right under our nose we fail to see what is going on in other places, that the USA govt. is supporting.

When it is said, take care of your own backyard that is what is meant, when we begin to come to terms and heal ourselves here we'll not be over in other Nations supporting oppression and other crimes against the lands and humanity.

More than 100 Jewish scholars condemn Trump's Jerusalem move.

Jewish scholars in North America have blasted a decision by Donald Trump to highly contentious move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

More than 100 Jewish scholars in North America issued a statement to President Donald Trump, slamming plans to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The clerics condemned the announcement by Trump on Wednesday that the US would recognise Israel's claims of Jerusalem as its capital, a decision which was met with surprise and universal condemnation.

"A declaration from the United States government that appears to endorse sole Jewish proprietorship over Jerusalem adds insult to ongoing injury and is practically guaranteed to fan the flames of violence," the statement signed by the scholars in the US and Canada said

"We therefore call on the US government to take immediate steps to deescalate the tensions resulting from the president's declaration and to clarify Palestinians' legitimate stake in the future of Jerusalem," Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

It also said the move looks to formalise Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and makes a peace deal between the two sides almost impossible to reach now.

"[The Jerusalem move] is outside of a negotiated political framework that ends the legal state of occupation and ensures respect for the rights of all Israelis and Palestinians to Jerusalem," the scholars added.

The group noted that Palestinians "endure systematic inequalities" in occupied east Jerusalem and face continued discrimination from Israeli authorities.

Many of the scholars are known opponents of Republican President Donald Trump who attempted to appeal to Democrat-majority Jewish voters by promising to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump has been criticised for appealing to anti-Semetic groups and media during his election campaign.

His alliance with Breitbart head and the former chief strategist of the president Steve Bannon has been under the spotlight, who once allegedly called Jews "whiny brats".

Bannon is still a firm supporter of Israel and has spoken at right-wing Jewish group meetings in the US, calling on members to back Trump.
