„Wir können eine große Bewegung aufbauen“: Israelischer Aktivist über seine Friedensvision für den Nahen Osten

watson hat mit Alon-lee Green gesprochen, einem der Direktoren von „Standing Together“. Er hat die Organisation im Jahr 2015 gegründet. Heute hat sie tausende Mitglieder und deutlich mehr Sympathisanten. Wir haben mit Green darüber geredet, was aus seiner Sicht geschehen muss, damit der Konflikt zwischen Israel und den Palästinensern nicht immer wieder ausbricht, wie seine Vision für eine friedliche Zukunft aussieht, was er Antisemiten in Europa zu sagen hat – und warum er trotz der Gewalt der vergangenen Wochen Hoffnung hat.

Yesterday we marched with our allies in Sheikh Jarrah to put an end to the evictions of Palestinian residents from their homes. We marched in the WB calling for an end to the Occupation. We were attacked and threatened, but this will not hamper our resolve

Jewish safety & Palestinian freedom are not opposing causes. Do not let anyone position them that way.

Support for the Palestinians Is Growing in Washington, and It’s Not Just About Gaza

The pro-Palestinian stance of these lawmakers reached unprecedented levels on Wednesday after Reps. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Mark Pocan introduced a resolution attempting to block a $735 million arms sale to Israel — the first-ever attempt by sitting members of Congress to block such a sale.

Biden is increasingly at odds with other Democrats over Israel

(19.05.2021)

The president’s top spokeswoman has repeatedly declined to say whether Israel’s military response in the Gaza Strip was appropriate to the provocation, while many Democrats have not been shy about calling it disproportionate. And Biden and his advisers have stuck to an assertion that liberal Democrats reject as insufficient, the notion that Israel has a right to defend itself.

That has led to sharp criticism of the Biden administration from some Democrats, which otherwise has been rare.

The U.S. conversation on Israel is changing, no matter Biden’s stance

(17.05.2021)

President Donald Trump’s close alliance with Netanyahu may have helped erode the once ironclad bipartisan consensus around Israel. But many Democrats are also waking up to how Trump’s predecessors, including Biden himself during the Obama years, did not stop the steady expansion of Israeli settlements or impose costs on Israel for undermining the prospects of a viable Palestinian state.

Palestinians deserve the same security, equality and right to a homeland as the Israelis

If history serves as a guide, however, after a ceasefire is reached, the conflict will slowly fade from the headlines, the world will go back to its business and the Palestinians will largely be forgotten — yet again. For those who sincerely want to see a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, this time must be different. The world, and especially the Biden administration, cannot look away but must engage on the question of Palestine. It’s 2021 — a homeland for Palestinian Christians and Muslims is long overdue, as is safety and equality for Palestinians.

WE ARE HUMBLED. For the the 3rd time this week, thousands of Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel are responded to our call and filled the county with hope. In more than 100 local protests, we called for an immediate ceasefire and against the Occupation.
