The editor of the Egyptian state-run has written an editorial calling the Brotherhood, the Jews and the Shia “the trinity of evil in the world”.

In the article Dandrawy Elhawary says:

There is no catastrophe in the world right now that isn’t related to one of these evils: the Jewish lobby, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group, and the Shia with their extremist and armed wings.

“Recall this when told regime promotes religious tolerance,” Timothy Kaldas wrote on Twitter in response to the article.

Despite the fact that President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi says he promotes peaceful coexistence between religious communities, Christians in Egypt have faced an unprecedented level of persecution since he rose to power in 2014.

Mob attacks are carried out against Christians particularly in the south of the country yet despite being prewarned, authorities are not doing enough to protect them. The absence of accountability has encouraged more attacks.

In August Egypt authorities enforced a presidential decree to demolish a Sufi mosque in Alexandria it alleged was built on state owned land without a license.

The president used religion to justify its destruction: “Prophet Mohammed would not accept the suspension of the project just because people see the demolition of the mosque as unacceptable.”

Shortly after his rise to power Al-Sisi designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation and subjected its members to a severe crackdown, including imprisoning and sentencing to death its members.

The majority of Egypt’s blasphemy charges have been issued against Christians, Shias and atheists.

Re:  Harvard students walkout of Israel envoy talk 

Re: Harvard students walkout of Israel envoy talk 

Israeli Consul General to New York Dani Dayan was left shocked as at least a hundred students staged a walkout during a talk he was about to give at the US’ Harvard Law School on Wednesday.

Just as Dayan was due to start his talk on “” in occupied Palestine, students who had filled the lecture theatre stood up, lifted placards reading “Settlements are a war crime” and walked out of the room in silence.

The gesture reportedly made a significant impact on Dayan as he was heard muttering “I remember doing this in kindergarten” while the auditorium emptied. He was then left to continue with his speech to the few audience members who remained.

The impact of the incident, however, resulted in a spark of awareness on the issue and made a huge impression. One of the organisers of the protest, Samer Hjouj, told the UK-based media outlet that “To have 100 people standing up all at once and silently, did leave an impact.” Hjouj detailed the process through which it was organised, saying that “As soon as we found out about the event, we planned and it took a lot of time but we had a team at every school in Harvard, finding people to help us make it happen.”

Dayan is a key advocate for the establishment and maintenance of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He served as the Chairman of the Yesha Council, an alliance of the illegal Israeli settlements, from 2007 to 2013. He was subsequently appointed as the council’s Chief Foreign Envoy – the only official representative of the illegal settlement movement to the international community.

This is not the first time that the invitation of Israeli officials or pro-Israeli figures to events at universities have been condemned by students and activists. With some facing such protests accusing demonstrators of repressing free speech.

In May last year, the former strongly pro-Israel US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley had her speech at the University of Houston interrupted by protestors screaming “Nikki Haley, the blood is on your hands!”

Despite Israel’s construction of Jewish settlements on Palestinian territory being in violation of international law as well as considered a war crime, the settlements have continued to be built and expanded, with around 650,000 Israelis currently living in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. This comes at the cost of Palestinian homes, villages and entire neighbourhoods being either evacuated and occupied or destroyed and replaced, leaving their legal owners destitute.

Re:  UN, Red Cross say Israeli settlements are still unlawful

Re: UN, Red Cross say Israeli settlements are still unlawful

The United Nations and International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said on Tuesday that Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory remain in breach of international law, rejecting the Trump administration’s position accepting them.

The United States on Monday abandoned its four-decade-old position that the settlements, built on land Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War, were inconsistent with international law.

“We continue to follow the long-standing position of the UN that Israeli settlements are in breach of international law,” UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a news briefing.

“A change in the policy position of one state does not modify existing international law nor its interpretation by the International Court of Justice and the Security Council,” he said.

The International Court of Justice, in an advisory opinion issued in 2004, said that Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, were established in breach of international law.

The Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 – which both the United States and Israel have ratified – lays down that an occupying power shall not transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, he said.

The ICRC, guardian of the Geneva Conventions that embody international humanitarian law (IHL) protecting civilians and others, reiterated its position that the West Bank is considered occupied territory.

“Additionally, the ICRC has repeatedly stated that Israel’s settlements policy goes against key provisions of IHL, or the law of occupation, and is contrary to its intent and spirit. The recent US declaration does not change the ICRC’s position on the matter,” ICRC spokesman Ewan Watson said.

Non-governmental activist groups also rejected the Trump administration’s new stance, announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“This changes nothing. President Trump can’t wipe away decades of established international law that settlements are a war crime,” Andrea Prasow, acting Washington director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement.

Philippe Nassif of Amnesty International said the construction and maintenance of the settlements breached international law and amounted to war crimes.

“Today, the United States government announced to the rest of the world that it believes the US and Israel are above the law: that Israel can continue to violate international law and Palestinians’ human rights and the US will firmly support it in doing so,” he said in a statement.
