Megan O`Toole - Aljazeera - "B`Tselem`s cooperation with the military investigation and enforcement system has not achieved justice, instead lending legitimacy to the occupation regime and aiding to whitewash it," the report noted.-rh
Israel is “infected by the seeds of fascism” and has been taken over by “extremists,” warn ex-prime minister and defense ministers

A Window Into the West Bank’s ‘Wildest, Most Violent’ Areas
JAMES GLANZ - The New York Times - With shoulder-length hair tumbling from beneath his knit skullcap, Hanamel Dorfman, a radical young Israeli settler, explains matter-of-factly on camera how hilltop settlement outposts like his own will continue to proliferate across the West Bank. From there, he says bluntly, Israelis will cross the Jordan River and start building on the other side. Reminded that beyond the river there is another sovereign nation, Jordan, Mr. Dorfman says with an unwavering gaze, “Everything is temporary.”-rh
Hundreds of academics call to boycott genocide conference in Israel
Rami Younis - +972 -Academics condemn decision to hold a conference on genocide in Jerusalem at a time when Israel’s actions are ‘being viewed through lenses of ethnic cleansing and genocide.-rh
Skepticism of German-Israeli Friendship Growing in Berlin

Samidoun - Palestinian journalist and former hunger striker Mohammed al-Qeeq was freed from Israeli prison on Thursday, 19 May.

Why Would That General Compare Israel to 1930s Germany? Hmm...
B. Michael - Haaretz - With all the festivals and days of sadness behind us, we can now return to the nagging question: What on earth was going through that anti-Semite general’s head when he dared hint that we, the Chosen People, commit abominable acts like those perpetrated by the gentiles?

Joint List MK: Lieberman deal reveals ‘the real face of Netanyahu’

Why are some Palestinians upset over Nakba commemoration?
Ahmad Melhem - Al-Monitor - Al Jazeera correspondent Mirvat Sadeq posted on Facebook May 14, “The Nakba was not a matter of folklore. You cannot commemorate it with dabke dancing and folk songs. It was not a wedding where women wear embroidered dresses. The Nakba is not a celebration. It is a disaster and a continuous massacre against people and lands. Tragedies are not to be celebrated with horns and sirens.” Sadeq was referring to the alarm siren that the commemoration committee played for 68 seconds at noon on May 15 in Ramallah to signal the launching of the Nakba events.-rh
How Netanyahu Showed the Army Who’s Boss by Handing the Keys to the Far Right
J.J.Goldberg - Forward - By removing defense minister Moshe Yaalon, a former career soldier and military chief of staff who’s part and parcel of Israel Defense Forces culture, and replacing him with Lieberman, a frequent critic of the military brass, Netanyahu is showing the generals who’s boss. That may not be what Netanyahu intended in this latest round of coalition musical chairs, but that’s what happened.-rh
