hey, the palestine library bombing seems to be fake. it's on snopes, just look up the azhar library. pretty sure that's not even a real thing
oh well tHAT'S a different story if it's fake then I'll take it down- I'll check myself first though
EDIT: so it seems Snopes has, in fact, got a whole page about this but indeed that post going around is littered with misinformation which is very irritating; the destruction that is ongoing in Palestine is very real and should continue to be discussed, but posts like that are fuel for people who want the world to ignore what is actually happening. Though, to be fair the guilt trip angle should have warned me...

in case any zionists try to deny the fact that Israel is ethnically cleansing the Palestinians or if they try to deny the Nakba even happened, just read this recent quote from a zionist politician, Bezalel Smotrich. and read it several times.
“You’re here by mistake, it’s a mistake that Ben-Gurion didn’t finish the job and didn’t throw you out in 1948.”

Palestinian director, Ameen Nayfeh, says he felt proud after bringing to life through film his personal struggle in crossing an Israeli military checkpoint to visit his dying grandfather. But he did not expect his short film to have a wide audience, Reuter's reports.
That all changed for Nayfeh on Thursday, when Netflix launched a new Palestinian film collection, the first of its kind by a major streaming service, that includes his award-winning short "The Crossing".
"This is why we make films, because we want our stories to travel, we want people to know about us," Nayfeh, 33, told Reuters.
"Now, when you type Palestine in the search button on Netflix, you will see so many different titles that you can watch. Before, when I would type Palestine, I would get Israeli titles," he said.
Netflix's new Palestinian collection, titled "Palestinian Stories", is made up of 32 award-winning films that are either directed by Palestinian filmmakers or tell Palestinian stories, the company said in a press release on Tuesday.
"The diversification of our content sits close to my heart as Netflix works to become the home of Arabic cinema," said Nuha El-Tayeb, a spokesperson for Netflix.
Many of the films tell stories of Palestinian life in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza, territory Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war and which Palestinians seek for a future independent state.
Israel maintains military checkpoints in the West Bank, citing security concerns. Palestinians say the roadblocks severely restrict their mobility throughout the territory.
Before filmmakers, Palestinian musicians began reaping the benefits of streaming to a global audience after Spotify launched its music streaming service in the Middle East and North Africa in 2018.
Netflix has made the new collection of Palestinian films available to all customers, the company said.
Huda Al-Imam, an actress in the Oscar-nominated film, "Ave Maria", which is also featured in Netflix's Palestinian collection, said it would expand the reach of Palestinian stories.
"Thanks to Netflix, now Palestinian stories and Palestinian life with its beauty and agony will be shown all around the world," Al-Imam said.

Aaaand sign off. Mainstream Western media, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Believe it or not, this reporter was actually somewhat professional by the typical standards we see from channels like CNN. I’ve seen much worse.
Watch the full interview here: https://www.instagram.com/p/COuuzG1l_yj/
Kurd’s comment on the interview:
“I knew this interview was going to have a biased, inaccurate framing, and it did from the start. But I made sure I course corrected. I’m happy that you cannot edit a live interview, because there’s no way I could have spoken so bluntly about the myth of “both sides” and Israeli “self-defense” had this been prerecorded. Thanks CNN for taking my testimony about settler-colonialism.“
Here are some backups. Because some social media - like Instagram, occasionally delete some posts about what’s happening in Palestine.

Palestinians will tell you that one of their greatest wishes is that the world would not forget them; this is what their oppressors are aiming to do. Unfortunately the attacks in Sheikh Jarrah and Al-Aqsa mosque are just instances in decades of horrific oppression and ethnic cleansing. You can directly help Palestinians by buying from them and helping them take economic power back.
The above are some examples of the beautiful and high quality products available at Shoppalestine.org including their honestly addictive Olive wood series and stunning embroidered goods (just to name a few).
!!! Hadeel.org is a UK alternative !!!
Similar and equally beautiful products here too^

The infographic above (courtesy of Yalla! Let's Talk) was posted only six days ago and now Palestine is trending once again following Israel's new airstrike against the people of Gaza in the middle of the night.
Besides being a violation of the "ceasefire", which Palestinians themselves said would not resolve the core issue, this new wave of bombings is once again a reminder that a free Palestinian state cannot be achieved through lukewarm, inconsistent coverage and activism.
Here is a few resources, feel free to add more:
Build Palestine has provided a list of charitable organizations you can donate to, many of them are providing critical medical/ humanitarian aid to Gaza in particular.
The BDS Movement's Action Alerts, resource articles and images, and list of what to boycott and how to do it effectively.
A playlist of Abby Martin's Empire Files reports from Palestine
Working Class History's podcast on the history of Zionism, Settler Colonialism in Palestine, and Anti-Zionist Activism: Part 1 & Part 2
Article on how mainstream media and social media companies have targeted or marginalized support for the Palestinian cause

If you live in the US this is something you can do to help Palestine: Contact your reps. We can block financial support for Israel's military.

The murder of Palestinian children and ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities is being supported by the US. Americans' taxes are funding these atrocities.
Please include Palestinians in your activism 🇵🇸❤️
Our hearts go out to Saeed Odeh's family, to the residents of Sheikh Jarrah & Silwan resisting ethnic cleansing, and to every Palestinian in exile waiting to return to their homeland 🇵🇸❤️🕊

just an fyi
israel has targeted communications and internet networks in gaza which effectively cuts off palestinians from the rest of the world
a significant drop in content across social media coming out of gaza in these last few days doesn’t mean the violence has stopped or that it’s over, it just means more voices are being silenced. it’s an active campaign by the israeli government to turn the world’s attention away. don’t let it fool you.
