Growing up in Israel we were family friends with Netanyahu and adored him. But we grew up and realized he's a corrupt and dishonest politician. Maher needs to grow up.

Netanyhu is a racist, extreme right winger who is once again the leader of Israel
Bill Maher interviewed Netanyahu: rather than hold him accountable for his right wing views he let him get away with it.
Either Maher is ignorantor or he needs to stop calling himself a liberal
Stopped at a checkpoint going from one Palestinian city to another Palestinian city. A combination of fear and humiliation. An 18 year old is pointing a machine gun at you while the other one makes your life living hell for just wanting to travel. #Palestine
"Don't Jews need Israel in order to be safe?"
@kthalps asked me this common question. I quoted my friend @TaherHerzallah a Palestinian who once responded to that ?:
"Not at my expense."
We address racism through tolerance not settler colonialism.
For people who like to crow about democracy, Zionists sure like going through the back door. #IHRA definition is smuggled into legislatures pressured to prevent antisemitism but #IHRA circumscribes apartheid #Israel and conflates Zionism with Judaism.
What is to be done? Netanyahu is back in power with an even more racist government than before. Let's talk about recent news and how things have changed in the 10 years since the first edition of my book.
Hope to see you in NYC on Tuesday with @kthalps at @PeoplesForumNYCtwitter.com/mikopeled/stat…
.@PeterBeinart should be grateful that he gets to sit on a panel with @MnarMuh, not the other way around
A privileged white guy who considers himself progressive can just feel comfortable enough to cancel a Palestinian woman from speaking about her country? twitter.com/MnarMuh/status…
One of the ideologies ZIonists relied on heavily to create their "new Jew" was fascism. In light of Israel's recent elections, this episode presents the history of fascist influence on classic and contemporary Zionism.
From the episode description: After jettisoning their Jewish values, the founding fathers of Zionism used a potpourri of ideologies to recast their Jewishness in the image of 19th-century philosophical ideas.
Israel just elected its most openly fascist government. But we shouldn't be surprised. Zionism has been influenced by fascism from the start.
Listen to the most recent episode of Committing High Treason with @yaakov_shapiro on your podcast app or here: committinghighreason.com/fascist-influe…
Last night, hundreds of Israeli settlers, guarded by army and police, held a provocative march in the Palestinian neighborhood of Wadi Hasin in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, terrorizing and harassing the local Palestinian residents as they passed next to their homes.
My friend Miko Peled has been catching hell for years for being consistently principled. It is absurd for anyone to suggest that criticisms of the white settler project in South Africa or in the U.S. is "anti-white." The issue is colonialism in its settler-colonial form. twitter.com/mikopeled/stat…
Criticizing Israel is not antisemitic
In fact, it is our duty to speak out against the atrocities perpetrated against Palestinian for the crime of not being Jewish. That's especially true after the terrifying results of the recent elections in Israel.
BREAKING: Young Jews demand end to Israeli apartheid!
Action at Jewish National Fund conference in Boston. For decades the JNF has been collecting donations in the name of planting trees in Israel. Those trees are used to erase Palestinian villages! #greenwashing#FreePalestinetwitter.com/IfNotNowOrg/st…
The Katie Halper Show Live is back! We’re taping at @PeoplesForumNYC at 320 w 37th on November 15 & our special guest is @mikopeled, who will talk about his memoirs “The General’s Son” & the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7pm est.
There is so much talk about securing the safety of Israelis. Palestinians need to be guaranteed safety! Palestinians are the ones in danger. Please share this thread and call or tag your members of Congress. Write an oped to your paper, join an activist group. Get involved.
The victory of the Ben Gvir kahane movement means hunting season on Palestinians. It’s a license for the most violent settlers to terrorize even more than they have been. Which brings us back to @Issaamro sitting alone in a house with Ben Gvir’s people & soldiers all around him
Netanyahu's coalition the Religious Zionist Party. RZP is led by Smotrich and ben Gvir and includes Otsma Yehudit - Jewish power - Ben Gvir’s kahanist movement. They got 14 seats in the Knesset which is unprecedented
ISRAELI ELECTION: The lives of Palestinians are more in danger now than ever before. Netanyahu is back and the most racist, violent thugs, the RZP, were extremely successful. That gives license for the most violent settlers to terrorize people like @Issaamro even more
The JNF is well known for collecting donations to plant trees. But those trees are planted on the ruins of Palestinian villages to hide the evidence of ethnic cleansing - and recently on Bedouin land
JNF is having its annual conference in Boston this weekend #GreenWashing 🧵I
Thank you all for your unwavering support in our pursuit for seeking accountability and #JusticeforShireen and for continuing to call on the US administration to launch an independent investigation‼️ twitter.com/globalfreemedi…
@Keir_Starmer as a proclaimed Zionist what can you do to help this good man @Issaamro ? A significant number of your constituents (I am one them) feel mighty strongly that a grave wrong is being done to Palestinians living under extreme oppression. twitter.com/mikopeled/stat…
Sen @BernieSanders, you've met w @Issaamro. Israel has declared his home a closed military zone. He is in danger. We saw how easily Israel killed even a famous Palestinian American journalist earlier this year: Shireen Abu Akleh.
Please speak up for Issa's protection @SenSanderstwitter.com/mikopeled/stat…
The Israeli army declared Issa's own home a closed military zone. He is alone. No one else allowed in or out. They have wanted to kill him. Palestinian life is treated as if it doesn't matter. Now they could use any excuse to kill him.
We must protect Issa & every Palestinian!
EMERGENCY: @Issaamro is in grave danger! I just got off the phone w him. He is alone in his home surrounded by the most racist and violent Israeli settlers & Israeli soldiers. They could easily kill him and we must not let that happen!
Pls call or tag your Senator & share this!
BREAKING: Israeli army declared @YASHebron - the house of my friend @Issaamro human rights defender - a closed military zone. Issa is the only person allowed to enter. He is there now, alone w no protection, settlers & soldiers surrounding the house. His life is in grave danger! twitter.com/Issaamro/statu…
