Impunity and more

We completed two days of conferences in Amman, Jordan: future of Research and Development, a meeting organized by the Union of Arab Universities and a meeting on Biodiversity organized by IUCN and the Palestine Environmental Quality Authority. Israeli authorities prevented a key leader of EQA  from joining the meeting. But they have been doing much more recently from assassinating innocent civilians to ethnic cleansing and more. That is why the Kerry-Netanyahu attempt at pacification based on the falso notion that Israel is keeping the status quo on the Haram Alsharif Compound in Jerusalem.ity is that Israel uses might to change everything: destroying native presence in Jerusalem and importing racist settlers, preventing religious access to non-Jews, while allowing racists in to “visit” under new rules of armed escorts instead of the usual mosque guards, home demotions, and more.

Again I feel like a fish out of water being away from Palestine especially in this difficult situation and I notice how people live normally in all countries while we suffer from 7 decades of colonialism. We wonder when impunity for war crimes and crimes against humanity will end. When will the world wake-up.
