The protests, rallies, and collective movement building that we are witnessing across the United States are inspiring. People from different struggles are coming together to disrupt agendas based on racism, bigotry, and Islamophobia and send a definite message that we will be fighting back.
In the midst of all this beautiful resistance, the White House announced that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be coming to DC to meet with Trump on February 15. We can expect that this meeting will result in even more open US support for Israeli policies that deny Palestinian rights, including the building of illegal settlements, and a further cementing of the “shared values” of racism and hate.
We must seize this opportunity to say loud and clear-- from US to Palestine: #BuildMovementsNotWalls!

(WASHINGTON DC 02/15/2017) – The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will start hearings into the nomination of President Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman as the U.S. ambassador to Israel. Friedman’s nomination is bad for Americans and especially dangerous for Palestinians. Even the Israeli press says Friedman is “more hardline in his views than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.” In fact, he’s tied into the settler movement and is the president of an organization that funds settlements in the West Bank. He supports the annexation of settlement blocs into Israel and moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
