#Jordan #UnitedNations Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned Israel that it’s continued policies of violence against Palestinian civilians in the Israeli occupied West Bank and in the Israeli embargoed Gaza Strip will fuel a “Sea of Hatred” during a speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 20, 2016. http://thearabdailynews.com/2016/09/22/jordan-king-warns-israel-sea-hatred/

EXCERPT:

"Government counter-tactics would be genius were they not so insidious.

The government sends its agents in — usually, people from our own demographics — posing as folks down for the cause, folks who don’t mind selling their own people down the river for the right price (sometimes, that price is monetary; other times it’s psychological — you’d be shocked at how valuable some people regard a head-pat from Massa to be), folks who can blend in.

And what those people do is agitate, stir trouble, cause chaos, and incite violence with the expressed purpose of defaming any movement and/or protest, and delegitimize the redress of grievance."

- +Son of Baldwin, "They Smile in Your Face"

Paul Krugman takes millennials to task for choosing third party candidates. Voting for Johnson is a waste, he says! If Hillary loses, it'll be your fault! Way to go! Scare them into submission! Sure, that'll work!

Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike get support. Advocates of human rights are showing support for the hundreds of Palestinian dissidents being held in Israeli prisons who have been denied their rights under the International Rule of Law. Supporters are posting videos and photos showing solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners who are being compared to the political dissidents who were brutalized by the Soviets in their prison Gulag system. Activists have launched the Prisoner of the Day campaign where supporters agree to fast and refrain from eating and drinking for 24-hours, and then posting information about their support on the campaign’s Facebook Page.
