Zion Or Bust!

Normalize This! Remi Kanazi

New Yorker of Palestinian descendant Remi Kanazi, lays down the methods and words Israel has used consistently to insist that its military occupation and confiscation of land in occupied Palestine and that crimes committed by Israeli military in Gaza can be normalized: washed away by simply talking peace or forming joint Palestinian Israeli cooperation projects while Israel continues to go against peaces through brutal actions. Kanazi calls it Poetic Injustice.

Genetics and Zionist claims to Palestine


Israeli government has continued with its plans to ethnically cleanse and removed 1948 displaced Palestinian Bedouin families and their descendants from their villages across the Negev desert. Palestinian Bedouins like their countrymen in Gaza, West Bank, Jerusalem and spread across the Diapora have not been spared from collective punishment or Israeli military force. The Bedouins were displaced from their original hometowns and homeland through forced expulsions and terrorizing force by the Haganah and Zionist forces who rushed to create the new state of Israel atop Palestine in 1948. During 1940s-50s and continuing into the 1967 war, Bedouin families had their villages (unrecognized by the Israeli government to this day) demolished by Israeli government forces in the Negev and other Palestinian towns under occupation and within Israel itself.

Visualizing Palestine today

Tel Aviv-Jaffa "City for Us All"
Emanicipatory municipal politics where Palestinians and Mizhrahi Jews (from Non European Arab Jews from Middle East and North Africa) come together to fight a common enemy forced evictions from their homes in Tel Aviv-Jaffa by Israeli municipal authorities.

Hares Boys: Israel has tortured and imprisoned five Palestinian children for life by the Israeli military for the "crime" of throwing stones during a car accident involving Israeli settlers in West Bank. The problem is the boys didn't actually throw any stones and were hit from behind. The Hares boys case echoes the Jim Crow laws during the Apartheid era in the US and the continual laws that send African American children to prison for crimes they did not commit or were innocent of a crime but were still imprisoned. Both actions violate not only local Israeli and American laws but international law on rights of children and citizens.

Migration in Israel

Despite being Jews or Pro-Israel and even Zionist, African migrants receive a cold reception in Israel
African migrants mainly from South Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea have crisscrossed thousands of miles from their homelands through Egypt and the Sinai to reach Israel. In addition to the migrants, there are thousands of Israelis of Ethiopian and African descendant living in Israel who are often overlooked when images of Israel are portrayed around the world. Many migrants similar to their countrymen racing to Europe or the United States, are escaping persecution war or searching for better economic opportunities and stability. Despite being a signatory to the UN laws and international charters on protecting refugees and asylum, Israel has consistently discriminated against African migrants arriving in the Israel. Israeli media uses stereotypes and racist language to describe African migrants as infiltrators, threatening invaders, diseased and treating the migrants as enemies within similar to Israeli society's views of Palestinians. Africans (both documented and undocumented) are hampered and denied access to jobs, decent housing or quality schools across Israel. Native born African Israelis face insults by school authorities, healthcare discrimination and wider society. Ironically South Sudan and Ethiopia have strong diplomatic and cultural ties to Israel. Both countries and respective leaders regard Israel as one of their strongest allies in the Middle East. Both countries have security pacts with Israeli military even going out of their way to do business and trade (military and logistic wise) with Israel despite Israelis' treatment toward South Sudanese or Ethiopians within the Middle's East's "only Democracy". Eritrea is in the middle. Even African Jews arriving in the country such as Ethiopian Jews  face outright discrimination and mob like racism from fellow European Jews from around the world who are granted automatic citizenship. Most migrants are quick to be deported if found to be illegal or if they break the smallest of laws. For migrants arrested by Israeli police, they are held in detention camps in the Negev desert. The African migrants have yet to reach out to connect with Palestinians on fighting Zionist racism as both peoples have suffered from the same methods used to control both peoples. No longer taking abuse silently, some tens of thousands of African migrants took to the streets in Tel Aviv to protest racism and discrimination in a country who takes discrimination against its own self seriously.
