Palestine in the Age of Trump

With the advent in Washington of an Administration with radical new priorities regarding Israel, and a disdain for Palestinian rights, Palestine is facing a daunting reality. In recent years, ascendant political currents in America and Israel had already begun to merge. We have now reached the point where envoys from one country to the other could almost switch places: the Israeli Ambassador in Washington, Ron Dermer, who grew up in Florida, could just as easily be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, while Donald Trump’s Ambassador-designate to Israel, David Friedman, who has intimate ties to the Israeli settler movement, would make a fine Ambassador in Washington for the pro-settler government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

Whereas America’s solicitous concern for Israel and its disregard for the Palestinians were once cloaked behind evenhandedness, under Trump we are set to see a more complete convergence between America’s political leadership and the most chauvinistic, religious, and right-wing government in Israel’s history. It will be this Israeli government and its new American soul mates who will call the tune in Palestine for at least the next several years.

Women’s March Brings Flood of Pink Hats, Fiery Rhetoric to Washington

Brandishing signs reading “The future is female” and “Make America kind again,” tens of thousands of women in a sea of pink hats marched on the nation’s capital Saturday, raising their voices in direct opposition to Donald Trump.

As Trump attended a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral on his first full day as president, protesters from across the country descended on D.C., arriving in buses, caravans and packing public transportation to gather near the National Mall and hear from prominent women’s rights activists, lawmakers and celebrities. A slow-moving procession began Saturday afternoon along Constitution Avenue toward the Washington Monument, and planned to end near the White House.

Organizers say the Women’s March on Washington was intentionally scheduled for the day after the presidential inauguration with the aim of sending a powerful message to the newly minted administration: Women’s rights are human rights.

More Than 200 Arrested in D.C. Protests on Inauguration Day

President Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day was marred by noisy demonstrations, shoving matches and sporadic clashes with cops that resulted in more than 200 arrests.

Three-thousand members of local, state and federal law enforcement — backed by 5,000 National Guard members and police officers from as far away as New Jersey — patrolled the streets as the evening’s festivities got under way and the legions of protesters still seething over the Manhattan mogul’s unexpected victory threatened more disruptions.

Acting Police Chief Peter Newsham said that by around 6:30 p.m. ET things had calmed down, but authorities were still monitoring several groups.

At the same time, police are preparing for the Women’s March on Washington set for Saturday that is expected to draw 200,000 protesters — a number that inaugural historian Jim Bendat said could break records.

A possible tornado and other severe storms shattered parts of southern Mississippi early Saturday, killing at least three people and injuring 20 others in Forrest, Lamar and Perry counties, state Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said.

The National Weather Service office in Jackson dispatched a damage survey team to the area to investigate what was a likely tornado that also damaged buildings in Hattiesburg and Petal, including parts of a college and a fire station, officials said.
 .
“There are widespread power outages as the tornado ran across three counties lines,” Flynn said.
.
Officials warned of downed power lines and debris spread over large areas and urged people to avoid traveling.
 .
Gov. Phil Bryant said he has been in regular contact with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and “ordered all available resources toward rescue and recovery.”

Italy Avalanche: Survivors Found Alive Inside Buried Hotel

Rescuers were working to free eight survivors Friday who had endured an almost two-day ordeal buried under 16 feet of snow in the ruins of an avalanche-hit Italian hotel.

Earlier, a young boy and a woman were freed by emergency workers. In emotional scenes captured on video, crews were seen working around a deep hole with what appears to be a tiled floor beneath it.

The rescuers erupted into a chorus of cheers and cries of “Bravo!” when the child was brought to the surface after being trapped for more than 40 hours.

After the woman was pulled out, she spoke urgently to the workers, and appeared to point back down towards the rubble. Her speech was not picked up clearly by the cameras.

Both of the survivors shown being rescued were conscious and displayed no obvious sign of serious injuries.

President Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, and delivered his inauguration address to the nation, which he apparently wrote himself.

Well, except for one line, which he straight up copied from the Batman villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

Timothy Burke for Deadspin noticed the striking resemblance and mashed together this quick video to show the shared line.
