Martin McMahon
“The legal battle for justice against Israeli settlers”

On February 19, 2019 The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that a group of mostly Palestinian plaintiffs could continue to pursue legal action against Israeli settlers alleged to have committed genocide.

The precedent-setting 2016 lawsuit doggedly pursued casino magnate and Trump MEGA donor Sheldon Adelson, Christians United for Israel's Pastor John Hagee, Democratic Party donor Haim Saban, U.S. State Department Special Envoy to Venezuela Elliot Abrams, a raft of non-profit charities funding settlements, Friends of the IDF, the Jewish National Fund, Bank Leumi, Bank Hapoalim, Re/MAX, Veolia, Hewlett Packard, Motorola and others.

Plaintiffs’ Attorney Martin F. McMahon explains why the U.S. Department of Justice attempted to quash the case, why defendants dodged process service, and where this legal action is headed in its next phase.

Saqib Ali
“Why I'm suing Maryland to protect my constitutional right to boycott Israel”

Former Maryland State Delegate Saqib Ali, founding member of Freedom2Boycott, in January filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan's executive order banning Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) of Israel. The executive order denies government contracts to businesses that refuse to sign pledges promising not to boycott Israel.

Similar measures have been implemented in 25 other states. Ali filed his lawsuit just before the Senate passed the “Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019.” The legislation contains a section upholding the legality of state anti-BDS measures. Despite years of intense Israel lobby efforts, anti-boycott legislation has never passed the House of Representatives

Brad Parker
“Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act”

For decades, activists and grassroots organizers have considered congressional advocacy for Palestinian rights futile. How has the “No Way to Treat a Child” campaign challenged that orthodoxy? What are the engagement points of the campaign and why were they chosen? What critical mass of national mobilization was necessary to finally engage members of Congress on the issue? What is “evidence-based advocacy” and how does it work? What applicable lessons can activists take away from the introduction of H.R. 4391, the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act, as they seek to advance other worthy initiatives through Congress?
