Palestine experiences a plethora of daily human rights violations by the Israeli occupation. However, the soundtrack of gunshots, teargas thrown between homes, the armoured jeeps doors closing behind detained Palestinians, and the violence screaming at us in the form of land annexation and discrimination is not new.

Wednesday, December 6, 2017, marks a moment of an unparalleled furor that has made its way deep into the hearts of the Palestinians and Arabs. It was with tears of bitterness and sighs of wrath that the Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims, Christians, and decolonization activists around the world received Trumps notorious declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of the self-proclaimed Israeli State, reversing decades of American foreign policy.

Israels mistreatment of Palestinian children is not a new development but rather one example of its many breaches of international law and international humanitarian law.

Privately, it has been well understood by US officials since the 1960s that Israel has the capacity to build its own nuclear weapons. Publicly, Israel has a policy of not confirming or denying its nuclear stockpile, even though by now it is a well-established fact.

A new report from the British Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM) presents itself as an independent critique of Jeremy Corbyns foreign policy in the Middle East. The eleven-page memo ends up as an apologia for hard-line Israeli security policy, simpering towards Israels new autocratic friends in Saudi Arabia and, strangest of all, a long section criticising Corbyns opposition to the US administration of Donald Trump.

This is a year of painful anniversaries for the Palestinian people. One hundred years ago Arthur Balfour with the stroke of a colonial pen declared Palestine a Jewish homeland, thus beginning Zionisms colonial onslaught in our country.
