Supporters, Traitors and more, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

It is with sadness that we have heard of the passing of supporter BeataLipman. Beata Lipman drafted South Africa’s original Freedom Charter in herown handwriting. She also dedicated her life to a better world, protestingand fighting against apartheid in South Africa and human rights abusesacross the world. As a white woman, Lipman opposed Apartheid in SouthAfrica. As a Jewish woman, Lipman opposed Israeli Apartheid againstPalestinians. She consistently spoke truth to power! We will miss her as afriend and supporter European Legal Scholars uphold right to BDS support and act for human rights but the 1% rule and supportviolence and oppression unfortunately and we reserve some space for those.One of the readers pointed out that the US misnamed "Anti-SemitismAwareness Act" (really support colonial Zionism act) mirrors therecommendations of the British Parliament's Home Affairs Committee'sreport:  decades, traitors to the USA who are only loyal to Zionist racism areappointed at high level positions in the US administration (e.g. DennisRoss, Martin Indyk, Henry Kissinger). But usually these are individuals whohide their Jewish Zionist racism and apartheid allegiance to a foreignstate 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 leafcovering the absurdity that is the endless “negotiations” for “two-statesolution” (aka mirage to hide ongoing apartheid and colonialism). If onlythe Arab leadership would wake-up but they are shameless and withoutdignity.“President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday named David M. Friedman, abankruptcy lawyer aligned with the Israeli far right, as his nominee forambassador to Israel, elevating a campaign adviser who has questioned theneed for a two-state solution and has likened left-leaning Jews in Americato the Jews who aided the Nazis in the Holocaust.” QumsiyehA bedouin in cyberspace, a villager at homeProfessor and (volunteer) DirectorPalestine Museum of Natural HistoryPalestine Institute of Biodiversity and SustainabilityBethlehem UniversityOccupied Palestinehttp://qumsiyeh.org
