Kahane founded the Jewish Defense League, an FBI-classified terrorist group that violently attacked Arab-Americans, and called for the forced expulsion of all Palestinians.

Anti BDS Bills: U.S. Crackdown on Palestinian Activism

September 18, 2018 IMEU

Elected officials are targeting your free speech rights because they want to shield a foreign government from criticism. As the Trump administration ramps up its crackdown on Palestinian rights advocacy, states across the U.S. are requiring people to sign oaths pledging they won't boycott Israel.

July 19, 2017 IMEU

Over the last 30 years, the Palestinian residents of Susiya have faced multiple waves of home demolitions by the Israeli state, in an attempt to drive the residents off their land. Last week, Israel’s high court placed the fate of the village and its 340 residents in the hands of Israel's notoriously right-wing defense minister Avigdor Lieberman, leaving it to him to decide whether the army will demolish nearly half its structures. Today, Palestinians continue to protest these demolitions and the takeover of their village.

The Tutanji family woke up in the middle of the night to find their home being demolished. They weren't given any time to collect their clothes or belongings. Israel wants to turn the land that their home is on into a state park, despite the fact that the Tutanjis and other Palestinian families and their ancestors have owned the land for 270 years. Israel denies 93% of requests from Palestinians for building permits in East Jerusalem, forcing them to build illegally. Israel then demolishes homes for being built without a permit when the state wants to confiscate the land.
