A view of the pre-1948 Palestinian village of Bayt Mahsir in the Al-Quds subdistrict, Palestine, in 1932. 🇵🇸
The village was depopulated by invading Zionist militias during the 1948 #Nakba
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas: #Ashkenazi Jews 'are NOT Semites'
Zionist leader Arthur Ruppin: German #Jews are NOT Semites but Aryan.
Yet Abbas in an antisemite, even though this idea is not really new (research: https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms3543), while Israel is naming buildings after the #Zionist leader Ruppin, who personally met with Himmler's mentor, Hans F. K. Günther.
Arthur Ruppin's Concept of Race

While researching Rashid al-Haj Ibrahim's activities, I came across this photo from his personal collection. The photo shows a gathering of the paramilitary scout movement al-Najjada (النجادة).
It is one of many thousands of photos and various Palestinian heritage artifacts Israeli forces looted during the 1948 war. Most of it is still buried in Israel's various military archives, under restricted access or straight out misleading labels, so to make it difficult for historian to find them and build a fuller and richer social and cultural history of Palestinian society before 1948.
@histodons @israel @palestine For Israelis to learn Arabic is not a political statement. Half of us grew up in homes in which some dialect of Arabic or Farsi were spoken. So ignoring Haaretz's uncontrollable urge to orientalize everything not grounded in #Yiddish (how ironic) , Maktoob (מַכְּתוּבּ, مكتوب), co-founded by prof. Yehouda Shaharabani-Shenhav, is one of the most inspiring projects in the #Israeli academia these days. It's always a pleasure to learn more about the system they've developed to translate from literary works from #Arabic to #Hebrew, in teams of two native speakers https://www.haaretz.com/life/books/2023-07-05/ty-article-magazine/.premium/the-most-political-act-for-jews-in-israel-is-to-learn-arabic/00000189-24e8-df82-a78f-65fa843b0000
@histodons @israel #histodons #islamophobia the Jewish right anti #UNRWA sentiment, calling for its abolition, stems from the fact that Palestinian refugees are a constant reminder of the ongoing #Nakba. UNRWA’s original mandate though was for PALESTINE refugees of the 1948 war, not PALESTINIANS. This meant both Arabs and Jews. After 1948 Israel took ownership of the Jewish refugee problem https://cup.columbia.edu/book/refuge-and-resistance/9780231202855 https://www.unrwa.org/palestine-refugees
This is actually a sensible and peaceful solution to the occupation of Palestine without having to remove anyone from their homes.

:xr: Can we please get back to our pre-pandemic conversations about the overwhelming amount of CO2 generated by the massive number of in-person #OpenSource events?
🌍 And more importantly, how to stop?
💡 Perhaps someone can work on a tracker of estimated carbon emissions for each major conference.
