'Truth and Rights'
Another piece nearing its completion - In critising the conduct of the Israel lobby & its U.S. supporters of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory. Ilhan Omar has been receiving torrents of abuse from the rightwing Republican base. .
Very few from her own party, (mostly made up of cowardly and self-serving centrists) came to her defence; save for progressive Democrat AOC - you can see the finished article at my solo exhibition,"It's Like a Movie But In Real Life" come August 10th/11th.

Imagine being prevented from praying! This is what is happening in China. - share this video.
Golan Heights, occupied Syria. 145,000 of the native Syrian population was forcibly displaced and 340* villages and farms were destroyed by Israeli occupation forces. today, after 50 years, the current number of refugees and their descendants is estimated at 500,000. only 6,000-7,000 people were permitted to remain in 6 villages. they have their relatives mostly in Damascus or Dara area, but they cannot meet them. *the number of villages and farms according to the Al-Marsad, a human rights organization, is actually much higher than originally believed.

A number of lawmakers have come out in support of legislation that seeks to end Israel’s military detention practices against Palestinian children, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.
H.R.2407 – the Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, was introduced by Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) in April. The legislation would amend a provision in the Foreign Assistance Act to block funding for the military detention of children in any country, including Israel. In a statement regarding the legislation Rep. McCollum wrote, “Israel’s system of military juvenile detention is state-sponsored child abuse designed to intimidate and terrorize Palestinian children and their families. It must be condemned, but it is equally outrageous that U.S. tax dollars in the form of military aid to Israel are permitted to sustain what is clearly a gross human rights violation against children.” The bill is being cosponsored by a number of Representatives including California’s Barbara Lee, Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, Massachusetts’ Ayanna Presley, Washington’s Pramila Jayapal. After Omar said she believed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would back the bill on Twitter, the New York Congresswoman indicated that she is excited to also support it. She is now also a cosponsor.
Palestine and Palestinians: from politicians to commentators have rejected Trump and Kushner's 'economic peace plan'. The 96 page document has been described as meaningless and impractical. Aiming to 'improve' some infrastructure, create some business and tourism, before Kushner presents the deal of the century tomorrow in Bahrain.
The document does not even refer to Palestine as a state, but a 'society'. How abhorrent and one sided. Expecting the Palestinians to give up national aspirations for economic investment...
They are discussing Palestine in the gulf states, whilst Palestinians reject these one sided talks. How many times in history must a nations fate be decided by others, much to their protest?
President Mahmoud Abbas has said; "economic situation should not be discussed before the political one." Hanan Ashrawi of the PLO has said "First lift the siege of Gaza, stop the Israeli theft of land, resources and funds, give us our freedom of movement and control over our borders, airspace, territorial waters etc. Then watch us build a vibrant and prosperous economy as a free and sovereign people."
