Former Mossad chief: For the first time, I fear for the future of Zionism

By Shabtai Shavit
Haaretz -- Nov. 24, 2014

From the beginning of Zionism in the late 19th century, the Jewish nation in the Land of Israel has been growing stronger in terms of demography and territory, despite the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians. We have succeeded in doing so because we have acted with wisdom and stratagem rather than engaging in a foolish attempt to convince our foes that we were in the right.

Honor International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People with Action

Today, on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, member group CodePink is launching an exciting campaign -- Boycott RE/MAX: No Open House on Stolen Land -- with a Global Week of Action Nov. 29 - Dec. 5!

RE/MAX is a real estate giant that markets and rents properties in illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land. While Palestinian homes and olive groves are bulldozed to make way for new housing units, RE/MAX is profiting from settlement expansion throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

UCLA students Vote for Divestment

In a huge victory, the student council at UCLA passed the divestment resolution put forth by SJP in an 8-2-2 vote (2 abstentions). This makes UCLA the SIXTH UC campus out of 9 to have passed a divestment resolution! The fight will now go to the UC system at large. The opposition to the resolution, led by Hillel UCLA, spent enormous amounts of money, including hiring a DC based PR firm, to try to defeat the resolution. But our side prevailed purely on the power of the arguments that SJP and supporters provided.

Onward and Upward!

Right To Education

Mahmoud and Phantina are two students from Birzeit University in the occupied Palestinian West Bank. They will talk about their experience growing up in Palestine and what education and activism are like under occupation.
