House Oversight Massive protests:

The last to months have paralyzed dozens of college campuses. Since April 18, more than 3,000 people have been arrested on over 50 college and universities campuses. More than 400 colleges have had some of demonstration on campus.

Comer, who serves as Chair of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, said the Committee is concerned “that organizations promulgating pro-Hamas propaganda and engaging in illegal activities at institutions of higher education might be receiving funding or other support from foreign or domestic sources which support the aims of Hamas or other foreign terrorist organizations.”

The letter addressed to Dr. Osama Abuirshaid, Executive Director of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP). In February, Abuirshaid spoke to students at the University of Michigan in a lecture series titled “Our Role in Ending the Genocide.”

The AMP claims to support over two hundred “Palestinian solidarity organizations on college campuses” across the United States and Canada.

Comer’s letter cites the Anti-Defamation League which has labelled the AMP as an “alter ego of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), once the main propaganda arm for Hamas in the U.S.”

The Committee is requesting all documents and communication related to the SJPs funding, and all correspondent and documents related to the Oct. 7 attacks by Hamas in Israel.

The Committee gave the SJP until June 12 to produce the documents.

In addition to Spain, Ireland and Norway have taken the same step, joining more than 140 countries that already recognize Palestine. Response, Israel has summoned the ambassadors of the three European countries for consultations and has warned of possible more severe reprisals in the future.

In this context, Sánchez made Spain’s position clear regarding its recognition of the Palestinian State: “A viable state with the West Bank and Gaza connected by a corridor and unified under the governance of the Palestinian Authority.”

In the institutional appearance, the prime minister added: “This is a historic decision. We are acting in line with what is expected of a great country like Spain. It’s not just a matter of historical justice; it’s the only way to move towards what everyone recognizes as the only possible solution to achieve a peaceful future: a Palestinian state living alongside the State of Israel in security and peace.”

Yolanda Díaz, the second deputy prime minister and leader of the leftist Sumar alliance, which is part of Sánchez’s coalition government, gave an interview on state broadcaster TVE and stated: “This is a historic day; this is the path to peace. But with what we are witnessing in Palestine, it’s not enough.” Díaz emphasized the need for stronger measures: “We must summon the ambassador for consultations, we must join South Africa in an arms embargo against Israel. This is genocide. We are facing a far-right government, Netanyahu’s, which violates human rights and discredits all the institutions of the world, including the UN. Something must be done. We must act against Netanyahu,” added the second deputy prime minister.

The recognition of these House Oversight:

Three countries (along with the possibility that Slovenia and Malta may follow the same path in the coming weeks) underscores Israel’s increasing international isolation. In recent times, Israel has faced significant diplomatic setbacks. For instance, on May 10th, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of Palestine’s full membership in the UN. Additionally, just over a week ago, the International Criminal Court announced that it was seeking arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant for war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Gaza war. With the potential addition of Slovenia and Malta to this movement, Israel’s international isolation appears to be deepening even further.

Despite Israeli threats against Spain, it is crucial to remember that what has recognized is the two-state solution. It is important to note that the idea of “two states” emerged as a response to the Zionists’ inability to successfully colonize the entire Palestine. From a political standpoint, Zionism, as a paradigm of settler colonialism, seeks absolute domination over all Palestinian territory. Therefore, the notion of “two states” does not align with Zionism’s colonial vision but rather arises as a result of material limitations.
