TIAA-CREF Divests Social Choice Fund from Controversial Veolia Corporation
Mina Remy, Grassroots International 11/14/2013
Grassroots International and its partners in the We Divest coalition join activists from around the country in congratulating TIAA-CREF for taking a step toward living up to its motto, Investment for the Greater Good . TIAA-CREF has made a move in the right direction by divesting its Social Choice Fund of Veolia stock given that Veolia’s business model and practices have consistently put profit over people — whether privatizing water resources around the world, or enabling Israeli occupation and segregation in the West Bank. This is a victory for all those concerned with human rights and justice, said Nikhil Aziz, Executive Director of Grassroots International.
TIAA-CREF Divests Social Choice Fund from Controversial Veolia Corporation
The We Divest coalition joins workers, environmentalists, and corporate accountability organizations in congratulating pension fund giant TIAA-CREF for removing Veolia Environment SA stock (VIE:EN Paris) from its Social Choice Funds portfolio. In July 2013, TIAA-CREF s website showed over $1.2 million in Veolia shares for its Social Choice Funds. Today it shows zero. TIAA-CREF still holds Veolia stock in its regular accounts.
Some of us in the socially responsible investment community are asking the question: does it make sense to own stock in a corporation that is violating international law in Palestine and committing so many environmental abuses around the world? said Lincoln Pain, a Certified Financial Planner practitioner, specializing in socially responsible investments for over 27 years.
TIAA-CREF made the right decision, said Rabbi Alissa Wise, Director of Campaigns at Jewish Voice for Peace and National Coordinator of the We Divest Campaign. Veolia cannot seriously be considered socially responsible given its infamous anti-labor practices, privatization of public resources, disastrous environmental practices, and ongoing servicing of illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian West Bank land.” more..e-mail

Film review: Arab citizen of Israel, member of the enemy
Shoshana Madmoni-gerber, +972 Magazine 11/16/2013
What is a Muslim woman s place in a country where Jewish suffering is the dominant cultural theme? A new Israeli film tells the story of Hadeel, a 27-year-old Arab woman who teaches at a Jewish school in central Israel, and explores the difficulty of never fully belonging.
Dove s Cry, Ganit Ilouz s new documentary (playing at New York City s The Other Israel film festival, November 16-18), tells the story of a charismatic Arabic teacher in a Jewish elementary school in Israel. Edited by Sara Salomon, the film speaks to both the possibilities as well as the limitations of implementing an intercultural Arabic learning program in a Jewish school. Dove s Cry follows the journey of 27-year-old Hadeel over the span of an entire school year, the film focuses on her successes and struggles with her Jewish students and colleagues, as well as her immediate family. The film is a sobering testament to the rigid boundaries within Israeli society, and the complicated dynamics of acceptance and exclusion.
Hadeel is a single Muslim woman and citizen of Israel. She lives in Wadi Ara in northern Israel, and makes her way every day to the town of Hod Hasharon, near Tel Aviv, to teach her sixth grade students both spoken Arabic and about Arab culture. This vision is part of a welcomed attempt to incorporate the Arabic language into the educational system in a more holistic way (and early on in the children s lives). But while Hadeel is fully accepted by her fellow teachers, and mostly beloved by her students, navigating between her Muslim identity and what is regarded in public as the culture of the enemy, is often challenging.
On a personal level, Hadeel is loved by everyone. She is charming, smart, funny and attractive. Viewers can t help but fall in love with her. The interpersonal relationships unfolding on the screen are often heartwarming and encouraging. Even the most cynical among us can feel hope and optimism at the sight of Hadeel chatting with a fellow teacher about the horrors of dating, getting her nails done in red polish by another teacher, and a birthday dance performance by adoring students…. more..e-mail

Homes and Lives Shattered in Palestine the story of Mahmoud Nimer al-Bahtetee
Claire Gilbert, Grassroots International 10/29/2013
The narrative below is the second in a series of three stories documented by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), a Grassroots International partner since 1996. PCHR has gained an international reputation as an independent voice on human rights documenting abuses carried out by both the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority. Raji Sourani, the founder and director of PCHR, recently received the Right Livelihood Award (known as the Alternative Nobel Prize). The PCHR documents human rights violations, provides legal aid to victims, advocates for greater economic and social rights,and in particular, defends the rights of Gazan fishers who are routinely denied access to their fishing waters by the Israeli Defense Forces.
Homes and Lives Shattered in Palestine the story of Mahmoud Nimer al-Bahtetee Two days before an Israeli drone injured Najwa Alyan Abu Daqq
a,on November 28, 2012, two separate missile attacks aimed at the Civil Department of the Ministry of the Interior destroyed the home of Mahmoud Nimer al-Bahtetee a 62 year old man who shared the home with 27 members of his family, 13 of them children. He described the incident to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights: “During the first attack, we were all sleeping in the house as it was very early in the morning. When the attack happened, the windows of the house broke from the impact and, as they shattered, pieces of glass fell on some of the children.” This year, Israeli bombings of civilian facilities like the home of Mahmoud have damaged or destroyed 613 houses. These homes sheltered over a thousand families with 2,608 children amongst them. Food supplies and agricultural resources that civilians rely on to feed themselves were also destroyed in the attacks including a greenhouse, an agricultural storage building, and irrigation networks.

Lavrov Reveals Amended Draft Circulated at Last Moment
Gareth Porter, Uruknet 11/15/2013
One of the language changes in the agreement….was aimed at satisfying a demand of Israeli origin at the expense of Iran s support for the draft.
WASHINGTON, Nov 15 2013 (IPS) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov revealed a crucial detail Thursday about last week s nuclear talks with Iran in Geneva that explains much more clearly than previous reports why the meeting broke up without agreement.
Lavrov said the United States circulated a draft that had been amended in response to French demands to other members of the six-power P5+1 for approval “literally at the last moment, when we were about to leave Geneva.”
Lavrov s revelation, which has thus far been ignored by major news outlets, came in a news conference in Cairo Thursday that was largely devoted to Egypt and Syria. Lavrov provided the first real details about the circumstances under which Iran left Geneva without agreeing to the draft presented by the P5+1.
The full quote from Lavrov s press conference is available thanks to the report from Voice of Russia correspondent Ksenya Melnikova.
Lavrov noted that unlike previous meetings involving the P5+1 and Iran, “This time, the P5+1 group did not formulate any joint document.”
Instead, he said, “There was an American-proposed draft, which eventually received Iran s consent.” Lavrov thus confirmed the fact that the United States and Iran had reached informal agreement on a negotiating text. more..e-mail
