Time for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to publicly endorse the BDS campaign

Two weeks ago, Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) tweets about Israel sparked a wildfire across the internet. Critics denounced her as anti-Semitic, while supporters of Palestinian human rights praised her for speaking out against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a deeply influential lobby group that seeks to secure and enhance the US-Israel alliance. With the recent controversy, it’s time for Omar’s fellow congresswoman, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), to put her words of support for Palestinians into action and publicly endorse the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) international campaign. With her support, she’d stand by Representative Omar and show the U.S. political left that Palestine needs to be on their progressive agenda.

Why are Palestinians calling for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions? Since 1967, Israel has carried out a military occupation of Palestine. In the West Bank, Israeli soldiers restrict freedom of movement, forcing Palestinians to pass through checkpoints and building a wall that separates Palestinians from their families. Bit by bit, the Israeli government steals Palestinian land inside the West Bank, demolishes homes and builds illegal Jewish-only settlements. Israel then subsidizes this segregated housing to Jewish Israelis as an incentive to encroach on Palestinian-owned land and displace Native people. Inside the West Bank, there are separate roads for Israelis and Palestinians, creating a structured apartheid system. In the Gaza Strip, the humanitarian crisis turns bleaker still.

Since 2007, Israel has imposed a military blockade on Gaza. The siege has blocked millions of Gazans’ access to clean water, electricity, economic prosperity and quality education. Palestinians living in Gaza are subject to routine Israeli bombings of their hospitals, homes and schools. Because of the siege, the United Nations declared that Gaza will be uninhabitable by 2020. The siege on Gaza and the occupation of the West Bank are made possible by American military aid to Israel, which totals $38 billion over 10 years.

The BDS campaign rejects this American-funded oppression. The campaign calls for boycotts, divestment and sanctions on all companies and institutions that profit from the violation of Palestinian human rights. BDS issues three demands: for Israel to end its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands by dismantling the wall, to recognize the fundamental rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality and to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, in compliance with international law. BDS is a way to hold Israel accountable for its actions, and it has adopted strategies that have worked previously — boycotts of apartheid South Africa and Montgomery buses. For centuries, boycotts, divestment and sanctions have played crucial roles in social justice movements. Across the world, international allies have championed the BDS campaign.

Fighting for freedom, justice and equality sound pretty American, right? But in the United States, only two U.S. representatives out of 435 have endorsed the BDS campaign: Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Palestine is becoming integral to the progressive agenda, so you’d think that another well-known democratic socialist would support the movement. Yet so far, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has kept uncharacteristically quiet about this justice issue. Her silence threatens to solidify a common misconception, that Palestine is solely a ‘Muslim issue,’ as Tlaib and Omar, the only supporters of BDS in Congress, are both Muslim. Without Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement, the American public will continue to see BDS and Palestinian human rights as solely problems that affect Muslims and won’t understand how BDS and Palestinian freedom intersect with US-based liberation movements, like Black Lives Matter, Indigenous people’s rights to water and struggles against the border wall. Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement would invite her progressive supporters to understand how Palestinian freedom, equality and justice already fit into their value systems. It would reach millions of young voters who don’t yet participate in the BDS campaign and who are unaware of the oppression of Palestinians, funded by our Americans’ taxes, which give Israel $10 million in military aid every single day.

Representative Ocasio-Cortez has a strong base with young voters that are passionate about justice and equity and her endorsement would raise awareness about BDS. If she endorsed the movement, she would stand in solidarity with the two congresswomen who have put their careers on the line because they have dared to care about Palestinian human rights. Her endorsement, coming days after Omar’s criticism of Israel that has come under fire, would awaken American consciousness of Palestinian oppression — the oppression that we are responsible for because we fund it. Progressives in America must understand the essential need for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement would radically reshape American politics and the American left.

  1. I’m of two minds of this article. I feel that having one member of Congress as a focal point of dialog across every policy position, you’re forcing someone to take a position on something they haven’t really done a lot of work in, or aren’t very passionate about. That’s not sustainable. I say this because as soon as she endorses the BDS campaign, she’s going to become the face of the movement, because she’s going to be easier to talk with than Tlaib or Omar, because she’s NOT Muslim. At the same time, it is time that this issue be free from pettifogging about antisemitism and middle eastern foreign policy because Israel is committing atrocities against the Palestinians, and we shouldn’t have to bend over to kiss up to Netanyahu. And it would seem that the best way is to get AOC on board, a progressive member of Congress. Now, as a white guy with only a somewhat good idea of what’s happening in that area, I’m probably not one to talk. But we need to have a talk about this as a party. She’d be good to have on board, to be sure, but I’m unsure as to whether it’s her responsibility to do really spark that conversation in Congress.

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. Can I simply say what a relief to discover someone that actually knows what they are discussing
    online. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    A lot more people should read this and understand this side of your story.

    It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you definitely have the gift.

  7. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different
    web address and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to
    exploring your web page again.

  8. May I just say what a relief to uncover someone that really understands what they’re
    discussing over the internet. You certainly realize
    how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your weblog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?

  10. Hi! I just want to give you a huge thumbs up for the great information you’ve got right here on this post.
    I’ll be returning to your blog for more soon.

  11. Hello, Neat post. There is a problem together with
    your site in internet explorer, would test this?
    IE nonetheless is the marketplace chief and a large component to people will leave out your great writing due
    to this problem.

  12. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this during my search for something regarding this.

  13. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my authorization. Do you know any methods to help
    prevent content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  18. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.
