1. LOVE FOOTBALL HATE APARTHEID
The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) will hold a peaceful protest at the Dundalk FC vs Maccabi Tel Aviv match in Tallaght Stadium on Thursday 29th September. The protest starts at 7pm and will take place outside the stadium, with the aim of highlighting the BDS call for the expulsion of the Israeli FA from FIFA and UEFA due to Israel’s ongoing human rights abuses against the Palestinian people, including Palestinian sportspeople.

The protest will be an act of solidarity with the people of Palestine who have suffered so much injustice, and continue to suffer daily, at the hands of the Israel’s apartheid regime. Outside the stadium banners reading, ‘Love Football, Hate Apartheid’ and ‘Boycott Israeli Apartheid’ will be displayed peacefully alongside Palestinian flags.

Freedom Rider: Steven Salaita, Palestine and Free Speech


 

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Zionist power engenders “fear, silence and acquiescence” in every sphere of U.S. political life, making a mockery of freedom of speech and hallowed notions of professional ethics. Just ask Steven Salaita, a renowned Palestinian academic who discovered that, in U.S. academia, anti-Zionists have no rights that universities are bound to respect.

    200 Palestinian bodies found in Tel Aviv mass graves

    The bodies are believed to belong to the victims of a massacre carried out by right-wing Jewish militias in the former Arab district in 1948.

    World Bulletin / News Desk

    It has been revealed that the remains of dozens of Palestinians killed during the Israeli-Arab in 1948 were found in six mass graves in the Jaffa district of Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

    The graves were found when ground subsided as builders carried out renovation work in the area, an official at the Muslim cemetery there told AFP.

    The bodies are believed to belong to the victims of a massacre carried out by right-wing Jewish militias in the former Arab district.

    As-Safri newspaper reported that up to 200 bodies may be in the graves, with an unknown additional number in the other graves.

    'The remains belong to people of different ages, including women, children and the elderly, some of which bear signs of violence,' Researcher and historian Mahmoud Obeid said.

    Around 760,000 Palestinians were forced out of their homes in the war, many of them still living as refugees in Jordan.
