Today is one of those days where all I know to do is pray. And to ask you to pray as well. Palestinian leadership has sent in their framework for what the need for a ceasefire and now the nations at the table will HAVE to find a way to make it work. Please pray for their success, OK? And, as we speak, the Israeli military has surrounded one of the last remaining hospitals in Gaza, and are killing anyone that comes or goes. Some of ...

Every night is horrible in Gaza. Without fail. But somehow, last night was one of the worst ever as Israel and the United States bombed refugee camps all over Rafah, in Southern Gaza. Over 1.6 million Palestinians have crammed into a community meant for 150,000 people - after they were told it was a safe zone, but now they are being bombed endlessly. And the fallout is beyond words. What I saw last night took my breath away. Let me...

Last week the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel is committing genocide and, in essence, ordered them to stop all genocidal actions, genocidal speech, and to open up ports for humanitarian aid. And gave them 30 days to do so. We are now within that 30 day period and Israel is in full, open defiance of every one of those orders. The genocide is in full force. The question now is this: what will the ICJ, and the rest of...

Hey my friends. When you see this, the International Court of Justice will have either already made their ruling on the genocide case brought by South Africa against Israel or will be close to releasing their findings. Let me tell you what I expect to happen.

In the center of Khan Younis, in Southern Gaza, a United Nations training center that was housing thousands of Palestinian refugees was fired upon indiscriminately by Israeli tanks. The UN reported the massacre themselves across social media, but leading American newspapers, knowing full well that Palestinians don't own a single tank (or airplane or warship or submarine for that matter) outright REFUSED to say WHOSE tanks caused th...

Ron DeSantis put all of his eggs in the Iowa basket and lost there to Donald Trump last week. Nikki Haley did the same thing in New Hampshire and lost to Trump just like DeSantis. This means the race is all but over. It's going to be Trump vs. Biden. If these men can live until the election, and if Trump can stay out of prison, they will be facing each other in November. Let me unpack and explain it.To listen to today’s FULL EPISOD...

In short, the offer is a non-starter. A pause in your own genocide means next to nothing if Israel is openly admitting, as they are, that it will simply start back up again in 60 days.

Hundreds of innocent men, women, children, and elders have been slaughtered by Israel and the United States all over the Gazan city of Khan Younis in Southern, Gaza. Bombs and missiles are being dropped everywhere - on homes, on refugee camps, on schools - nothing and no one is being spared. And this is where people were told to flee for safety. Let me unpack and explain it. To listen to today’s FULL EPISODE of The Breakdown go now...

Have you seen the gleeful videos posted by Israelis where they gleefully film themselves committing genocide? Well, another one went viral 2 days ago, and it showed Israeli's blowing up the largest university in Gaza - as in the entire university - and they said it took 350 bombs that they placed all over the campus - which was clearly empty and not being used by anyone. So, why did they blow it up, the journalist asked? And the Wh...

We live in a time where nations around the world have charged Israel with the genocide of over 30,000 Palestinian people, but the United States, which openly supports the genocide, and defends it at every turn, is rushing to put one of the nation's leading the charge against it, on its terror list. The Houthis, during this entire genocide, have not killed a single soul. It does not appear that they've even injured anyone. That's wh...

As you may know, South Africa brought a genocide case against Israel before The International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands. And yesterday, before the court, South Africa masterfully argued their case, and truly allowed the facts to simply speak for themselves. Today, pitifully, Israel attempted to defend itself, but we will have to wait to see the results. Because of the emergency nature of the genocide of the Palesti...

Last night, my attorneys filed a legal brief with the Meta Oversight Board to not only have my Instagram account restored, but for them to change their policies, and address and correct the gross discrimination against Pro-Palestinian voices on their platforms.

The past 24 hours in Gaza were absolutely atrocious. Every day is bad, but some days are horrible and other days are somehow even worse. Yesterday and last night were such moments.

I want to unpack and explain today why I think the actions of Yemen are the single most important actions happening in the world right now that have the best chance to stop the genocide of the Palestinian people.

Virtually every war crimes expert in the world now agrees that Israel is committing THOUSANDS of war crimes violations against Palestinians. I am posting these violations on my Instagram day and night. But what I need you to understand is that Joe Biden is also committing war crimes. And should be charged for them.

The genocide of Palestinians from the hands and bombs of Israel and the United States is still fully in motion. Which makes me taking this episode to talk about myself frustrating, but for my own record, I must document what went down. I was the #1 trending topic in the United States after people first lied and said I took sole credit for freeing the American hostage, Natalie Raanan. That never happened. It's a complete fabrication...
