On This Day in 1948: Over 100 unarmed Palestinian civilians including women and children were systematically murdered when terrorist Zionist groups Irgun Zevai Leumi and Lehi entered the village of Deir Yassin near Jerusalem on April 9, 1948. Never forget their suffering and never forget that the creation of the state of Israel was faciliated by the ethnic cleansing of Palestine (which still continues today).

Your tax dollars “defending the state of Israel” hard at work - An Israeli soldier sprays a Palestinian woman on her face from as close as possible with pepper spray at a Land Day protest outside the Old City of Jerusalem, March 30, 2014. 

Land Day commemorates the killing by Israeli forces of six unarmed Palestinians in 1976 during protests against government plans to confiscate privately owned Palestinian land in the Galilee region in what is now called Israel.

Egyptian authorities partially reopened Rafah border crossing, Gaza’s main window to the world, on Saturday for three days after 50 days of its closure, Palestinian border officials said. Since the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013, the authorities have largely kept the crossing closed, worsening the humanitarian crisis in the coastal enclave.

This comedy sketch on illegal Israeli settlements by “The Revolution Will Be Televised” on BBC Three is extremely on point.

Jerusalem (AFP) - Suspected Jewish extremists punctured the tyres of dozens of Palestinian cars in annexed east Jerusalem on Monday in the latest so-called “price tag” hate crime, police and an AFP correspondent said.

The attack took place in Beit Hanina, a Palestinian neighbourhood in the northern sector of east Jerusalem, with Hebrew graffiti on a nearby bus reading “Gentiles in the land are enemies”.

Police said the tyres of 34 cars were punctured, but an AFP correspondent at the scene placed the number at 45, noting all four wheels of each car were slashed.

Local residents told AFP that security cameras at the site showed that a group of men perpetrated the crime, which bore the hallmarks of a “price tag” attack, a euphemism for hate crimes that generally target Palestinians.

Initially carried out against Palestinians in retaliation for state moves to dismantle unauthorised settler outposts, the attacks have since become a much broader phenomenon with racist and xenophobic overtones.

In June, 21 cars were vandalised in a similar attack in Beit Hanina not far from Monday’s attack.

Last month, the tyres of 31 cars were slashed in a Palestinian neighbourhood in the southern sector of east Jerusalem.
