Congress gives 29 standing ovations for president of foreign nation that harms the US
On July 19, 2023 the US Congress convened a special joint session for Israeli President Isaac Herzog. Both Democrats and Republicans bobbed up and down to applaud him 29 times. They did this despite the fact that even though the US expends over $20 million per day on behalf of Israel (https://israelpalestinenews.org/house-committees-pass-20-mill-per-day-on-behalf-of-israel/), (1) Israel has a pattern of spying on the US and stealing our technology – see https://ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/spy.html (2) Israel tried to sink a US Navy ship, killing 34 American servicemen and injuring 174, and has lied about it ever since – see https://ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/ussliberty.html (3) Israel has a long, thoroughly documented record of human rights abuses and violations of international law – see https://israelpalestinenews.org/human-rights-reports-on-israel-palestine-regularly-updated/ The unavoidable reality is that Israel has the most pervasive and powerful special interest lobby on behalf of a foreign country in the US, which includes numerous billionaire campaign donors – see https://ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/introlobby.html To learn more about this issue, see https://ifamericansknew.org/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/IfAmericansKnewVideo For a best-selling book that details little-known facts on the US-Israel "special relationship" see https://www.amazon.com/Against-Our-Better-Judgment-History/dp/149591092X Please help us continue to give Americans the facts on this profoundly important issue.

Israeli Military Bulldozer Desecrates Palestinian Body
Israeli forces shot Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, on February 23 in Gaza. They next crushed his body using an armored bulldozer as a weapon while an Israeli tank protected it, then used the blade of the bulldozer to lift the corpse from where it lay on the ground and swing it back and forth in the air. Such actions violate international law prohibiting the desecration of bodies. "Each party to the conflict must take all possible measures to prevent the dead from being despoiled.

Justice For Liberty
On June 8, 1967, Israeli forces tried to sink a U.S. Navy ship, the USS Liberty, killing 34 American servicemen and wounding 174. 'Justice for Liberty', filmed at the crew’s 54th anniversary reunion in Pensacola, Florida, allows the survivors to tell the American public their stories, some for the first time. It is time for the truth to come out. Visit the Justice for Liberty website at https://justiceforliberty.org/. According to former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer, “In attacking the USS Liberty, Israel committed acts of murder against American servicemen and an act of war against the United States…. Those men were then betrayed and left to die by our own government.” The survivors are still awaiting justice.The Liberty crew is one of the most decorated in U.S. Naval history. Yet, for decades this attack has been covered up and misrepresented.

The role of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine - Ilan Pappé
Israeli historian Ilan Pappé describes the crucial role of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine that led to the establishment of Israel in 1948. Palestinians and others call this ethnic cleansing the 'Nakba,' Arabic for 'catastrophe.' Professor Pappé illustrates some of the ways in which the JNF is implicated in the military operations for the expulsion of the Palestinians from their lands and how the JNF thwarted the Palestinian Right of Return. Professor Pappé is the author of numerous books on the history of Israel-Palestine, including "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" and "The Biggest Prison on Earth: A History of the Occupied Territories" - https://smile.amazon.com/s?k=ilan+pappe&sa-no-redirect=1&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 He graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and obtained his PhD in history from the University of Oxford. Currently, he is a professor at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom. The Jewish National Fund is an international multi-billion dollar organization that was founded at Basil Switzerland by Theodore Herzl in 1901. It has fundraising chapters registered as charities in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia, and numerous other countries. https://www.kkl-jnf.org/about-kkl-jnf/kkl-jnf-offices-worldwide/ Professor Pappé's talk was sponsored by the English and Scottish chapters of "Stop the JNF" (https://www.stopthejnf.org/about/) in May 2021 (https://youtu.be/-Rs7bfnhukQ)

Israeli video whitewashes Israeli demolition of Palestinian home in Sheikh Jarrah
Mohammed Salhiya, the owner of the home, said, “I’ve been attacked for 25 years, 25 years I’ve faced pressure to sell the land…I’ve spent 25 years just in the courts with them.” Mohammed and members of his family refused to leave their home on Monday, even threatening to burn down the house, rather than yield to Israel’s demands to vacate. "We don't want death. But we have been expelled from our homeland again and again. We are already dead. We are dead inside. We have been dead since 1948," he said.

How Israel Censors the Internet
An exposé on Israel's detailed projects – some public, some covert – to influence what people see on the Internet, and what they don't. From the article, "How Israel and its partisans work to censor the Internet" iakn.us/2Ixc6LC – the article has additional information and citations. Since the U.S. gives Israel over $10 million per day, it is essential that Americans are thoroughly informed on this issue. We've made four versions of this video. This article gives the background: https://israelpalestinenews.org/will-youtube-again-censor-our-video-about-censorship/ (1) The original version of this video was removed by YouTube under erroneous claims. (2) Our second attempt was permitted by YouTube but age restricted, again unjustly. (3) We then posted a version that included text that described the previous censorship, and that version was permitted – https://youtu.be/Hq0Jg0ZyS4k (4) This video is that version without the introductory text.

Alison Weir's talk at USS Liberty reunion
Alison Weir was invited to speak at the 2021 reunion of the crew members and families of the USS Liberty, a US Navy ship attacked by Israel. The 1967 air and sea attack, which was intended to sink the ship with all men aboard, killed 34 Americans and injured over 170. The independent commission headed by Admiral Thomas Moorer found that there was "compelling evidence that Israel’s attack was a deliberate attempt to destroy an American ship and kill her entire crew", and stated that the attack constituted "an act of war against the United States." See https://iakn.us/Liberty Weir is the founder and executive director of If Americans Knew, a non-ideological, nonpartisan think tank that provides information on Israel-Palestine to the American public: http://ifamericansknew.org/ She is also the author of a best selling book on the Israel lobby: http://iakn.us/AOBJ-book In her presentation, Weir discusses her trips to the region as an independent journalist, media coverage of the issue, the actions of the powerful pro-Israel lobby in the US, and what these mean for Americans, whose politicians give over $10 million per day to Israel (See https://iakn.us/Cost).
