The face of politics is quickly changing with women and progressives leading the way. Congratulations again to the fierce women who have stepped up to serve their communities against a system telling them it's impossible - I know first-hand how tough that can be.

Hey allies and advocates. If you’re troubled by and ’s denial of entry or border interrogations by Israel, friendly reminder that Palestinians seeking to travel to their homeland are regularly denied. Their claims are morally, legally stronger

Meanwhile, the Canadian government is buying pipelines. More oil, more tar sands, more climate change. Drill baby drill as the world burns. Cognitive dissonance much?

Reza's and Peter's experience prompts me to share my story as well. In May I was denied entry into Israel and detained for 14 hours before being sent back to NYC. As a human rights lawyer, one learns to expect that from police states. So, I'm learning.

Benjamin Netanyahu has half-apologized for my detention yesterday at Ben Gurion airport. I'll accept when he apologizes to all the Palestinians and Palestinian-Americans who every day endure far worse

(THREAD) Peter’s experience has spurred me to share mine. 2 weeks ago, as I was crossing back into Israel from Jordan, I was separated from my family and detained by Shin Bet. “We can make it so you don’t see your kids for a long time” I was warned. This is what happened next
