Over 1,000 people protest in Boston today against Israel war on Gaza
Close to one thousand people currently marching in the streets of Boston chanting “Resistance is justified, when people are occupied!”
"The murder of Muhammed Abu Khdeir and the military onslaught in Gaza have brought about a wave of protest among Arab citizens of Israel. Reports on that wave should be supplemented by unprecedented data: more than 410 Arab citizens of Israel have been arrested on various grounds related to their participation in demonstrations since July 5, according to data provided by human rights NGO Adalah."
Hundreds of Arab citizens of Israel have been detained in recent weeks, including dozens of minors. Abusive interrogations and preemptive arrests suggest that many of the tactics of occupation have crossed the Green Line. By…
sorry, i have no idea what this is in reference to. but yeah, i don’t have the time or desire to scan the entirety of the Tumblr world to see if a news article or something i come across on the internet has already been posted by some random Tumblr user somewhere before i go ahead and share it on my own Tumblr blog.
of course, if i find something first on Tumblr, i will always reblog from that original Tumblr source. but failing that, if i find something via other social media or from my own perusal of the interwebs, i just immediately quick-post it on my Tumblr blog.
in any event, i always credit the actual original author of a given article or whatever. but you seem to not be upset about that so much as that someone else on Tumblr may have shared something before I have and yet I went ahead and shared it from the original source rather from that secondary Tumblr re-blogger which I was not even aware of in the first place.
in conclusion, find something more important to be angry about …
This is shameful.

Hamas, they tell us, is cowardly and cynical.
On Saturday, at a Palestine solidarity rally, a passerby asked me how Israel can possibly trust Hamas to negotiate in good faith, when the latter won’t recognize Israel’s “right to exist.” Enter the deputy speaker of the Israeli Knesset [Parliament], and member of the ruling Likud Party, on Palestine’s “right to exist”:
Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel. The coastal train line will be extended, as soon as possible, to reach the entire length of Gaza.
