in 1974, the Israeli Air Force bombed the Palestinian Refugee Camps in South Lebanon, destroying Nabatieh Refugee Camp and partially destroying Ein El Helweh Refugee Camp.
Meanwhile, the Israeli authority were denying the very existence of the Palestinian people among which the refugees forced to exile during the outburst of the Nakba and the launch of the ethnic cleansing campaign also know as Plan D (Dalet) in 1948. This denial is to be linked to the memoricide of the Nakba, designed to prevent Israel from any form of accountability regarding its crimes and destruction of Palestine, a once multi-ethnic territory turned into a borderless state forever expending in compliance with the settler colonial ideology that is Zionism.

I have iOS 8 and now I have this dipshit “health” calorie counting app and i CANT UNINSTALL IT WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK APPLE this is just plain old unsafe
I just confirmed with Apple support that Health can’t be uninstalled or hidden. The rep— who was very understanding of the urgency of the situation— suggested naming a folder “DO NOT USE” or whatever wording would hopefully be strong enough to discourage looking inside and opening the Health app.
That’s the officially sanction “solution”. Beyond that, you’ll have to either
1. Wait for a jailbreak for iOS 8 to become available or
2. Follow the directions on this page to reinstall iOS 7, which does not have the Health app.
I also filled out feedback to the iOS team to explain the necessity of the option of hiding/removing Health.
Good luck. :/
Things I learned today
The relief of successfully navigating court bureaucracy tempered by the realization you’ve internalized an idea that the state will protect you, always.
The ease your white skin and amicable, humble demeanor has afforded you throughout the bouncing between departments and the shortcuts taken in your favor.
The awareness of being trans and white and what the second part means with regards to the first.
