i haven't been here much but i beg you guys to not ignore what is happening in palestine. please spread information, muna el-kurd and her brother mohammad el-kurd have both been detained by israeli occupation forces, these people are two very prominent activists who are arguably some of the loudest voices that speak about the abuse and ethnic cleansing palestians are facing. israel is trying to silence palestinian voices, this can't just be ignored
Please keep your attention on Jerusalem today. The Flag March, a nationalist demonstration by settlers protected by israeli armed forces, will march through palestinian neighborhoods. This is a recurrent event where they harass and abuse palestinians, and destroy their property and businesses while chanting "death to arabs". Since the cease fire, there's been massive arrests of palestinians, racist pogroms, and murders by israeli occupation forces and settlers (at least 30 people killed). Besides a new goverment and the cease fire on Gaza, nothing really changed, the apartheid regime and the genocide of the palestinian people continues. Keep talking about it, ask your representatives to cut ties with the Israeli government, and follow the BDSmovement campaign and the current protests and disruption of companies that contribute to and profit from the israeli military and settler industry.

They are being attacked, arrested and kidnapped by IOF soldiers. This has not ended. Israel and its supporters can rot in hell. Fucking monsters. Free Palestine. 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸
9000 year old Neolithic Spirit Masks, the World’s Oldest Masks.
These masks were unearthed in the Judean desert around Jerusalem and were sculpted by some of our earliest ancestors who decided to give up the hunter gatherer lifestyle to instead settle in the Judean hills, beginning a farming lifestyle.
It is thought that this change in existence sparked more organised religious beliefs and a worship of ancestors, prompting a necessity for artifacts such as these.
Numerous masks like these have been found in the region. Sometimes, they are found as a result of an archaeological excavation in areas with thousands of other objects. Things such as rope baskets, beads, shells, flint knives, bone figurines and decorated human skulls. Some of these stone masks even had hair attached as beards and moustaches.
In other cases though, these masks have been found by accident. One such case was an accidental discovery by a farmer who was tilling a field in the early 1970s. From there, they fell into the hands of an antique dealer. Sadly, after changing possession numerous times, the precise location of where the masks were found is unknown.

I think the number one thing to take away from the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem right now if you’re an American is to remember that Israel’s brutal, genocidal apartheid state would not exist without the protection of the US government. Like, it’s hard to overstate just how much Israel depends on the US for its existence, and how much the US will give Israel everything it wants to murder and oppress Palestinians because it needs it to control the Middle East. There is virtually no difference in US politicians’ policies towards Israel. Biden just picked up where Trump left off, such as keeping the US embassy in Jerusalem, and I can guarantee his administration’s not going to do jack shit about Sheikh Jarrah. Even the most progressive and left-leaning politicians y’all love like Bernie and AOC are at best critical towards Israel, but do not want to stop funding and supporting their regime of terror, because, again, Israel is too important to the US for the US to not fund its crimes against humanity.
Campaigners lined up 4,500 pairs of shoes symbolizing the number of Palestinians killed by Israelis in the past decade outside the EU Council building in Brussels, to put pressure on European foreign ministers meeting inside.

Lets get things straight before we let the whipped western media start reporting on the on-going ethnic cleansing and massacres as “clashes” or about Israel once again bombing civilians in Gaza as “self-defense” or “retaliating.”
For the entire holy month of Ramadan and only in last month alone:
The Israeli army protected Israeli settlers during their “Death to Arabs” march where they attacked any Palestinian they saw, Israeli Mayors and members of their parliament were a part of that March.
The Israeli army dragged Palestinians civilians from their own homes, so that the cheering Israeli settlers standing to the side with their luggages can move in to there, because it’s literally a public law that Jerusalem’s non-Jewish population has to always be under 40%.
The Israeli army stormed Al Aqsa Mosque, the 3rd holiest site in Islam and started indiscriminately shooting rubber bullets and sound grenades at unarmed worshippers during Lalyt al Qadr, the holiest night in Islam.
Thousands of people on Facebook, instagram and Twitter had their posts/accounted deleted or muted after reporting what happened there, Instagram claimed it was a “technical issue” but they have yet to give an actual reason as to why it happened/is till happening.
The very next day, despite all that happened, the Israeli government decided to still allow thousands of Jewish Israeli settlers to come to Jerusalem for their annual “Jerusalem Day,” a racist and nationalist holiday to celebrate stealing the city in 1967, where Jewish Settlers will march through Jerusalem while singing and waving the Israeli flags, all while being being 100% protected by the Israeli army at all times.
The Israeli army blocked any Palestinians from entering Jerusalem in the same exact day, all while accompanying those Israeli settlers and “defending” them as they assault Palestinians and try to break in their holy site.
The Israeli army deliberately used rubber-coated bullets on Palestinians civilians, not out of mercy, but to keep the morality rate low for their reputation, while still being able to disfigure as many Palestinians as they can to ensure that no trauma is wasted. Hence why the majority of Palestinians who got shot, have either lost their eyes or broke their elbows/knees.
The Israeli army prevented Palestinian medics from entering Jerusalem to tend to the injured Palestinians, the Israeli medics however were allowed to enter, but they only tended the injured Israelis soldiers.
By the end of the night, Israelis have set fire to the historic Al Aqsa Mosque, with thousands of Israeli settlers celebrating, clapping and singing right in front of the fire (literal videos of that can be found online)
The Israeli army is currently indiscriminately bombing Gaza, civilians causalities are increasing by the minute.
Western/American politicians who have been silent about all the violence that happened in this month are now coming out and claiming that they support Israel’s right of “self-defense” as they bomb Gaza.
The Israeli army is one of the strongest armies with (illegal) Nuclear weapons in the world, not only that but they receive weapons and 10 millions dollars a day from the US for free every single day. Palestinians only have rocks that they could find on the ground and social media to show the world their suffering.
This isn’t and has never been a conflict or “clashes” between two sides and never allow anyone to refer to it as such, the violence and suffering happening is purely one-sided. One side is an apartheid settler colony that’s fully-armed to the brim and are ruling over and ethnically cleansing the unarmed native population through various war crimes and human rights violation that regularly breaks international laws.
Israel is a rogue terrorist settler-colony that have been committing crimes against humanity no-stop for the last 72 years it has existed, their existence and the lack of consequences and the blind support they receive from western Superpower for committing crimes that are set by the international community should be a concern to everyone in this world.
If you can't even bother to speak up and raise your voice about the terrorism Palestinians are facing everyday and the oppression they have to endure because of Israeli forces, that are supported and funded by the US, then why do you even have BLM in your bio? Why did you actively support the movement? Did you speak up and support the BLM movement because you genuinely believe in human rights, or are u merely hopping in on another trend ? Because people's lives and basic human rights are NOT a mere trend that you get to speak about only when a hashtag is trending because of millions and millions of people; if you can only outline an issue after it's spoken about by the media and people with big platforms, then I'm pretty sure there's another underlying issue regarding your true intentions.
Its high time you've raised your own voice regarding what Palestine is going through, irrespective of whether the media decides to make it a trending hashtag or not.
