Why Palestinian children throw stones:

Forget the empty posturing of world leaders in Paris yesterday. This photo (copyright: Nedal Eshtayah/Anadolu Agency) tells us what the Israel-Palestine “conflict” is really about.

Imagine for a second that the little boy – how old is he, eight, nine? – is your son, trying to adjust his keffiyeh because it keeps falling over his eyes and he can’t see anything. Image your small son surrounded by masked Israeli “soldiers”, or what looks more like a Jewish militia than an army. Imagine that the boy is likely soon to be bundled into the back of a military van and taken for interrogation without his parents or a lawyer present, or even knowing where he is. That he could end up beaten and tortured, as human rights groups have regularly documented.

Maybe you can’t imagine any of that because you, a responsible parent living in Europe or the United States, would never let your child out to throw stones.

Then you need to know more about the story behind this picture. Continue reading »

Description:

October 12 A ‎Palestinian woman from Haifa attacked and detained by [Jewish] ‎Israeli passersby in Tel Aviv. Passers-by are arguing about whether or not to beat and kill her. One woman claims she saw she had a knife and screams and demands her execution. Someone kicks her in the head. If not for the intervention of some of the bystanders who stop the lynch this would have been reported as another “stabber terrorist” that was “neutralized” .

Netanyahu thanks US House for vote to slam anti-Israel UN resolution:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed his gratitude to US legislators after the House of Representatives voted in condemnation of a recent UN Security Council resolution demanding a halt to the Tel Aviv regime’s settlement expansion policy.

Netanyahu, in a video statement published on Friday, described the anti-Israel resolution, which was adopted on December 23, 2016, as outrageous and one-sided, stating that House members “voted to either repeal the resolution at the UN or change it – and that’s exactly what we intend to do.” Continue reading »

Israel-Stealing-Palestine


Countries from Around the World Just Slammed Israel’s Imperialism in Palestine:

New York — In a special session of the United Nations Security Council on Friday, the U.S., along with several other countries, slammed the practice of forcibly removing Palestinian civilians by Israel to make way for Israeli settlers, saying the behavior is leading to a “one-state reality” for Palestinians.

The session, titled “Illegal Israeli Settlements: Obstacles to Peace and the Two-State Solution,” is a response to mounting criticism over a dramatic rise in settler activity in recent decades. It’s been reported that over 11,000 Israeli housing units have been authorized under the rule of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Continue reading »

UC Berkeley reinstates controversial course on history of Palestine:

UC Berkeley senior Paul Hadweh designed a course on the history of Palestine in order to spark discussion about his family’s homeland under Israeli occupation.

“I wanted to create a space where we can read, think and speak critically about the question of Palestine,” Hadweh said.

But the one-credit, student-led offering — which aimed to analyze Palestine through “the lens of settler colonialism” — was suspended last week after just one class following a storm of criticism that it fostered anti-Semitism and indoctrinated students against the Jewish state.  Continue reading »

American university suspends Palestine history course:

A top-ranking university in the United States has suspended an academic course on Palestinian history midway through the semester, following accusations that it propagated anti-Semitic viewpoints and indoctrinated students against Israel.

The University of California at Berkeley cancelled the course “Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis” after it received complaints from 43 pro-Israel and Jewish groups alleging that the one-credit course was politically bent and encouraged students to hate the Tel Aviv regime and “take action to eliminate it.”

The advocacy groups had expressed concern that the course aimed to teach the idea “that Israel is an illegitimate settler colonial state” and that the readings in its syllabus had “a blatantly anti-Israel bias.”

Berkeley’s Chancellor Nicholas Dirks confirmed the suspension, claiming that the class “did not receive a sufficient degree of scrutiny to ensure that the syllabus met Berkeley’s academic standards.” Continue reading »

Israeli PM Netanyahu considering Putin’s offer to host Palestine talks in Moscow – statement:

Benjamin Netanyahu is considering Russia’s offer to host Israeli-Palestinian talks in Moscow, a statement from the Israeli PM’s press service said.

[Netanyahu] presented Israel’s position whereby he is always ready to meet [Abbas] without preconditions and is therefore considering the Russian president’s proposal and the timing for a possible meeting,” the statement reads, as cited by Reuters news agency.

The statement came after Netanyahu held talks with Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Envoy to the Middle East, Mikhail Bogdanov.

If agreed upon, the talks would be the first between the two leaders in several years, amid the ongoing rift in the region. Continue reading »

State Department Urges US Citizens To Leave Gaza “As Soon As Possible”:

It’s been a busy 24 hours for John Kerry. Between fending off requests for Hillary’s emails, palling it up with Erdogan, and dealing with Afghanistan fallout, The Department of State has just issued a travel alert warning U.S. citizens against all travel to the Gaza Strip and urges those present to depart as soon as possible when border crossings are open. The announcement follows an escalation between Palestinian militants and the Israeli military over the weekend.

20160824_gaza

The security situation remains complex in Israel and the West Bank, and can change quickly depending on the political environment, recent events, and geographic location. U.S. citizens should exercise caution and remain aware of their surroundings when traveling to areas where there are heightened tensions and security risks. The Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority both make considerable efforts to police major tourist attractions and ensure security, particularly in areas where foreigners frequently travel. This replaces the Travel Warning issued December 15, 2015.   Continue reading »

AUSTIN, Texas — On Saturday, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America became the ninth Christian denomination in the United States to vote for divestment from Israel.

The resolution, which the ECLA calls a “memorial,” requires the church to end its current investments in companies that support Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine and to rigorously screen all future investments as well. Continue reading »

Israel Unveils Plan to Track and Deport Those in Favor of BDS Movement:

Amplifying the growing crackdown on dissent and specifically the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights, the Israeli government this weekend unveiled a new initiative to track and deport activists suspected of supporting the campaign.

Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan and Interior Minister Arye Dery on Sunday announced the creation of a new government task force charged with gathering intelligence on pro-Palestininian activists and organizations with the intent, as Haaretz put it, of collecting enough evidence to legally deport them from Israel or the occupied West Bank.

Israeli rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu
Israeli rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu
A senior Israeli rabbi says Tel Aviv should execute Palestinians instead of arresting them and “leave no one alive” in order to establish safety in the occupied Palestinian territories, Palestinian media report.

“Israeli army has to stop arresting Palestinians,” Shmuel Eliyahu said in a message posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday, adding, “but, it must execute them and leave no one alive,” Palestine News Network reported.

As chief rabbi of the city of Safed, Eliyahu is known for his racist behavior and remarks about Arabs and Muslims. He had earlier urged the Israeli regime to take “revenge” against Arabs in order to restore what he called Israel’s deterrence.

He also described Palestinians as the enemy of Israel and claimed that they “must be destroyed and crushed in order to end violence. If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand. And if they do not stop after 1,000, then we must kill 10,000. If they still don’t stop we must kill 100,000, even a million,” the Jerusalem Post quoted him as saying in 2007.

Israeli settlers destroy Palestinian homes like ‘termites’: US Rep.:

Democratic US Representative Hank Johnson says Israeli settlers living in illegal settlements are destroying Palestinian homes like “termites.”

“There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself,” the Georgia lawmaker said Monday, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

He made the remarks during an event in Philadelphia, sponsored by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. Continue reading »

Israel’s New Open-Fire Rule Authorizes ‘Extra-Judicial Execution’ of Palestinian Youths:

Israeli police regulations, previously kept classified, permit preemptive and fatal recourse against suspected stone-throwers

Israeli police are officially permitted to use deadly force against stone-throwing Palestinian teenagers, according to updated regulations made public on Tuesday by an Israel-based human rights organization.

The new open-fire regulations, revealed by Adalah, a rights organization and legal center that defends Palestinians living in Israel as well as the occupied territories, state that “an officer is permitted to open fire [with live ammunition] directly on an individual who clearly appears to be throwing or is about to throw a firebomb, or who is shooting or is about to shoot fireworks, in order to prevent endangerment.” Continue reading »

According to an experienced reporter on Palestine, 50 percent of the water to a city of 40,000 people has been cut off during Ramadan, a time “when people need to have access to food and water more than any other time.”

(MINTPRESS) Jerusalem — Israel is limiting access to water in Palestine, a long-standing practice that’s only intensified during the holy month of Ramadan, when access to water becomes even more important than usual.

Cuts in water supply are hitting the Occupied West Bank especially hard, Al-Jazeera reported on June 23. Continue reading »

Israel Attacks Non-Violent Protesters:

Powerful forces unite to destroy Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement.

The powerful, apartheid, terrorist, rogue nuclear state of Israel is panicked by the completely peaceful, quickly growing Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks through non-violent means to end the Israelis’ genocide of the Palestinian people and obtain independence for Palestine.

The Zionists equate BDS with “terrorism,” employing the identical methods against it as they direct against their perceived archenemy, Iran—from false propaganda to sanctions, and now apparently cyber-warfare and incitement of violence. Meanwhile, the Zionist Occupation Government in the Holy Land has readied its next violent assault in its campaign to exterminate the Palestinian people. Continue reading »

Labour “anti-Semitism” witch hunt claims new victims:

The “anti-Semitism” witch hunt in the UK Labour Party against leftist supporters of Palestinian rights is continuing to claim new victims.

The latest is Marlene Ellis, a Black activist within the Momentum grouping, who was suspended on Friday. Ellis told The Electronic Intifada her suspension was an attack on free speech.

But campaigners have scored the first win in pushing back.

A Jewish activist expelled from the Labour Party for referring to the transatlantic slave trade as an “African holocaust” was cleared of anti-Semitism and readmitted to the party at the end of May.

Jackie Walker told The Electronic Intifada on Monday she had yet to receive an explanation for her suspension.

Russia slaps Israel in the face:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s recent visit to Moscow and his negotiations with President Putin, for the fourth time this year, has created the impression of failure. Russia and Israel have been developing active cooperation recently in the field of culture, trade and customs and  education.

However, Netanyahu’s visit to Moscow does look like a failure from the point of view of foreign policy. In an official statement for the press, President Putin spoke about “open” and “constructive” nature of the talks with the Israeli PM. In the diplomatic world, though, when negotiations are held in a friendly and even neutral fashion, they usually say that the talks were held “in a friendly atmosphere.” This is something that we have not heard from the Kremlin this time. In other words, there is no understanding between Russian and Israeli leaders. Continue reading »

New York Governor Issues Executive Order to Punish Israel Critics:

For more than 10 years the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement has been challenging Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and raising awareness, in the hopes of placing economic and political pressure on the nation. But like any political organization, you are free to support or oppose them. Unless of course, you’re running a business that sells products or services to New York State.

On Sunday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made a stunning announcement on Twitter that reads: “I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement. If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.” Continue reading »

Israeli Woman Lied About Rape, Palestinian Kid Still Faces Prison:

The actual rape victim, a young Palestinian under the age of consent, will face prison time for unlawfully entering Israel while the perpetrator walks away free after making false accusations.

On Monday, a mentally-ill Israeli woman admitted to police that her allegation that a Palestinian child raped her while another man filmed the incident in Tel Aviv was a lie.

The woman now says that she was in a consensual relationship with the child, who himself is below the age of consent, and that the story of rape was a fabrication developed by her family in an attempt to put an end to the relationship. Continue reading »
