[HumanRights] Supprters, Traitors and more- Mazin Qumsiyeh

Thank you, thank you: Hundreds of you wrote to reassure that you do read
these messages!  Most also stated they like the mix of reporting on what is
happening and positive building-up actions such as those from our museum,
botanical garden, and education sections. Many suggested shortening emails
(fewer items or shorter text). Your input is much appreciated. Better yet,
many readers demonstrated their interest by actually donating to our
ongoing positive work of with the youth “thinking globally and acting
locally” in Bethlehem University Palestine Museum of Natural History and
Institute of Biodiversity and Sustainability (http://palestinenature.org).

There is still time to donate before the end of the year (tax-deductible in
many countries).

Just the past two weeks, we had the good fortune of receiving dozens of
school students and dozens of international visitors, giving lectures to
hundreds (both in formal and informal education), publishing two papers
(the two that came out last two weeks are on reptiles of Palestine and on
decline of biodiversity in Bethlehem as evident by eagle owl diet),
receiving good news of grant and donor support for empowerment of youth and
biodiversity research, planted more in our garden, started a big compost
project with Bethlehem municipality, and much more (all in two weeks!). But
we (mostly volunteers) can do much more with your support  (again follow
links at http://palestinenature.org).

It is with sadness that we have heard of the passing of supporter Beata
Lipman. Beata Lipman drafted South Africa’s original Freedom Charter in her
own handwriting. She also dedicated her life to a better world, protesting
and fighting against apartheid in South Africa and human rights abuses
across the world. As a white woman, Lipman opposed Apartheid in South
Africa. As a Jewish woman, Lipman opposed Israeli Apartheid against
Palestinians. She consistently spoke truth to power! We will miss her as a
friend and supporter


200 European Legal Scholars uphold right to BDS


Millions support and act for human rights but the 1% rule and support
violence and oppression unfortunately and we reserve some space for those.

One of the readers pointed out that the US misnamed “Anti-Semitism
Awareness Act” (really support colonial Zionism act) mirrors the
recommendations of the British Parliament’s Home Affairs Committee’s


For  decades, traitors to the USA who are only loyal to Zionist racism are
appointed at high level positions in the US administration (e.g. Dennis
Ross, Martin Indyk, Henry Kissinger). But usually these are individuals who
hide their Jewish Zionist racism and apartheid allegiance to a foreign
state that bankrupted the US with veneers of diplomatic language. No more!
Now openly racist colonial supporters are selected to represent the US.
This maybe better as it can remove the fog and perhaps the last fig leaf
covering the absurdity that is the endless “negotiations” for “two-state
solution” (aka mirage to hide ongoing apartheid and colonialism). If only
the Arab leadership would wake-up but they are shameless and without
“President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday named David M. Friedman, a
bankruptcy lawyer aligned with the Israeli far right, as his nominee for
ambassador to Israel, elevating a campaign adviser who has questioned the
need for a two-state solution and has likened left-leaning Jews in America
to the Jews who aided the Nazis in the Holocaust.”
