House of Representatives Votes 269-144 to Ban State Department from Citing Gaza Death Toll

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/17812778

> Rep. Rashida Tlaib: “But Palestinians are not just numbers. Behind these numbers are real people — mothers, fathers, sons, daughters — who have had their lives stolen from them and their families torn apart. And we should not be trying to hide it. These are innocent children and babies who have been bombed in their tents, burned alive, dismembered and deliberately starved to death. Where is our shared humanity in this chamber? There is so much anti-Palestinian racism in this chamber that my colleagues don’t even want to acknowledge that Palestinians exist at all, not when they’re alive and now not even when they’re dead. It’s absolutely disgusting. This is genocide denial.”

Studenten en medewerkers zetten nieuw kampenement UvA op: "Verbreek de banden met Israël"

Nieuw Gaza/UvA-kampement bij Science Park Amsterdam | GLOBALINFO

Academische vrijheid is een illusie

De weigering van het CvB om de banden met een ‘heel land’ te verbreken toont niet alleen hun opzettelijke verkeerde interpretatie van de BDS-beweging, maar laat ook zien dat Nederlandse universiteiten niet de autonome structuren zijn die ze beweren te zijn. Zolang universiteiten wachten op de regering om hun investerings- en samenwerkingsbeleid te sturen, zoals het geval was met Rusland, moeten zij worden beschouwd als armen van de staat, die zich aanpassen aan haar politieke praktijken en ideologieën. Er is geen academische vrijheid als universiteiten op één lijn staan met de staatspolitiek.

Norman Finkelstein: ‘Wat Israël de mensen in Gaza heeft aangedaan is niet meer in woorden uit te drukken’

De Joods-Amerikaanse Norman Finkelstein (70), politicoloog, mensenrechtenactivist en zoon van Holocaust-overlevers, is niet verbaasd over de reactie van Israël na de aanval van Hamas op 7 oktober. Wat hem wel verbaast is de reactie van de internationale gemeenschap. ‘Is een genocide in naam van zelf...

  • Yeah. I thought about that. When you add an icon to your rows of shortcuts in Firefox and it fails to fetch the correct icon and gives it a generic letter instead and you want to add an icon yourself you cannot just upload or insert an icon to your Firefox, you will need to point it to some web link where the remote icon is. I can imagine Firefox wants to check at each startup whether the remote icon has changed or not (Not completely unreasonable. Think about Twitter changing to X).
