Neturei Karta oppose the establishment of and retain all opposition to the existence of the so-called "State of Israel."
Hussam Khader Defense Committee. Hussam Khader is a member of the Palestinian Parliament and the Chair of the Committee for the Defense of Palestinian Refugee Rights. He has also been active in confronting corruption and collaboration in the Palestinian authority.
On March17, 2003 Khader was arrested by the Israeli occupation forces. Since his arrest , he has been subjected to brutal psychological and physical torture, including one year in solitary confinement.
Khader is the founder of the " Association for the Defence of the Rights of Palestinian Refugees " . He earned widespread acclaim among the Palestinian people for his refusal to accept anything less than the unconditional Right of Return of all Palestinian refugees to their original villages and homes.
Human rights organisations the world over have decried Khader's conditions of detention, the illegal interogation methods used, and the indadequate access to his lawyers . Khader is the second member of the Palestinian legislative council to be arrested after Marwan Barghouthi.
• Azmi Bishara:
Site of the International Committee for the Defense of Azmi Bishara and Palestinian Minority Rights in Israel.
"Member of Knesset Dr. Azmi Bishara, has represented the National Democratic Assembly-a progressive political party of Palestinian citizens of Israel-in the Israeli parliament since 1996. On 7 November 2001 the House Committee of the Israeli Knesset voted to lift the parliamentary immunity of MK Azmi Bishara. This unprecedented vote marks the first time that the Knesset has lifted the immunity of a MK so that s/he can be indicted for expressing a political opinion. ...MK Azmi Bishara faces two simultaneous trials for addressing the concerns of a public that elected him to do just that. The Palestinian citizens of Israel, who number some 1 million, constitute 20% of the total population of the state. The indictments against MK Azmi Bishara are part of a systematic attempt to intimidate, silence, and de-legitimize the democratic voice of the Palestinian citizens of Israel."
The site includes links to articles and speeches by Bishara, who has won considerable respect among Palestinians in '48 occupied territories, in '67 occupied territories, and in the diaspora refugee community. It also has an English translation of the principles and aims of his party, the National Democratic Assembly (Balad): http://www.azmibishara.info/nda.html)

• Jeffrey Blankfort
"In the field of US-Israel-Palestine relations he [Chomsky] has been a virtual human tsunami, washing like a huge wave over genuine scholarly works in the field that contradict his critical positions on the Middle East, namely that Israel serves a strategic asset for the US and that the Israeli lobby, primarily AIPAC, is little more than a pressure group like any other trying to affect US policy in the Middle East. For both of these positions, as I will show, he offers only the sketchiest of evidence and what undercuts his theory he eliminates altogether."

• Jess Ghannam
From A Primer on Palestine Solidarity Work:
"The question of Palestine solidarity work has come to be corrupted, co-opted and manipulated. It has been co-opted by many sectors of the left: pseudo-progressives, soft and not so soft Zionists, etc, all of whom are unable or unwilling to confront their internalized racism and biases which prevent them from "going all the way" with justice in Palestine."
