Israeli defense minister says government knows who was behind Duma attack, but won’t prosecute

Six weeks after settlers torched a Palestinian home in the West Bank hamlet of Duma killing three—Ali Dawabshe, 18-months, Sa’ad Dawabshe, 32, and Riham Dawabshe, 27—no one has been charged for the crime. Now, Israel’s defense minister says he knows who is behind the arson attack but is refusing to indict, because doing so could expose government intelligence sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which suggests that the torching of Palestinian houses is an Israeli intelligence operation!

Israel Desecrates Islam’s Third Holiest Site, Again

snip: No crime is too outrageous for Israel to commit. Genocidal aggression is longstanding policy. So are many forms of daily persecution - ruthless police state brutality against defenseless Palestinians.

On September 13, ahead of the two-day Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah period, extremist settlers led by racist agriculture minister Uri Ariel, protected by soldiers and police, stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied East Jerusalem - Islam’s third holiest site where they don’t belong, on the fabricated pretext of conducting a security operation.

Dozens of worshipers were attacked and forcibly removed, including children, Israeli forces using tear gas and stun grenades, as well as indiscriminately firing steel-coated rubber bullets against helpless victims.

Last week, defense minister Moshe Ya’alon illegitimately banned two Muslim groups responsible for protecting the Mosque.

UK’s panic-stricken Tories smear Labour’s new leader: Jeremy Corbyn blows away the Blair/Brown minions

Stuart Littlewood examines the smears hurled at newly-elected UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn by the Tories, and wonders who is the real threat to national security: Corbyn or the Tories who have pledged allegiance to Israel?

Corbyn blows away the Blair/Brown minions

New Labour leader is smeared by panic-stricken Tories

There are high hopes that Corbyn, who is a patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, vice-chair of CND and national chairman of the Stop the War Coalition, will eventually break Britain out of the cycle of servitude to US neo-con and Zionist diktats.

As expected, the Tory Dirty Tricks Department were ready and waiting to put the boot in. No sooner had news of Jeremy Corbyn’s amazing leadership victory, with nearly 60% of first-choice votes, trickled through than Conservative Central Office began emailing all and sundry with their ludicrous smears.

Champion of Palestinian rights wins leadership of UK Labour Party

In a stunning upset, Jeremy Corbyn has been elected to lead the UK Labour Party.

The veteran left-wing lawmaker and vocal supporter of Palestinian rights took almost 60 percent of the vote, trouncing the establishment candidates Yvette Cooper, Andy Burnham and Liz Kendall.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had warned that the party would face “annihilation” if Corbyn won.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The establishment gonna faw down go BOOM! Corbyn's victory, coupled with Trump's ascendancy here in the US, is signal that people around the world are fed up with the "Friends of Israel", fed up with war, fed up with lies, fed up with austerity, and mostly fed up with the money-junkies squeezing our balls in a vice for our last penny! .

Analysis: Burned alive by Israelis

Five years ago at a stop during my book signing tour in San Diego, I met an adorable toddler named Farah.

She was being treated in the US for severe burns she received at the age of two.

Farah was one of thousands of civilians who were either injured or killed when Israel rained white phosphorus bombs on Gaza in 2008-2009.

The phosphorus that burned through Farah’s angelic flesh was American made and paid for by US taxpayers. Ironically, so was Farah’s treatment.

Last Sunday, mother of two Riham Dawabsha died from burn injuries.

Israeli forces storm Al-Aqsa compound, assault worshippers

Israeli police clashed with Palestinians at Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Sunday just hours before the start of the Jewish New Year, police and witnesses said.

Tensions have been running high at the holy site in the wake of a decision by the Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon last week to outlaw two Muslim groups that seek to "protect" the compound against groups of Jewish worshipers.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound shortly after dawn prayer, firing rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades, leading to the injury of several worshipers.

The forces then surrounded worshipers inside Al-Aqsa Mosque itself and closed its doors with "chains and bars" before firing rubber-coated bullets inside the mosque, witnesses said.

"Psychopaths Are Running The World" Former US Marine Blows Whistle On Syrian False Flag, Exposes Real Agenda

“We have tortured and killed and maimed and raped around this planet; who in their right mind would consider the United States or the West in general to be in any position to punish anybody?” the veteran begins angrily, going on to outline the evidence for Syria being a false flag attack (Note: leaked emails showing how Assad was framed by the USA are detailed in this cached Daily Mail report from January 2013, which was published online briefly before being removed).

He rightly points out that the USA dropped more bombs in Vietnam than during the whole of WW2 combined, that it regularly arms terrorists (but the mainstream press refer to them as ‘freedom fighters’ when it suits them) and the former marine also points out how the so-called ‘War on Terror’ is nothing more than a well-planned strategy to be in a “perpetual state of war to destabilize the region for the Greater Israel plan.”

Labour leadership: Jeremy Corbyn elected with huge mandate

Jeremy Corbyn has been elected leader of the British Labour party, in a stunning first-round victory that dwarfed even the mandate for Tony Blair in 1994.

Having been catapulted from a little-known member of parliament to leader of the opposition, he will now set about apologizing for the Iraq war and strongly opposing cuts to public services and welfare. He will start off on Saturday with a speech to a rally in London in support of refugees.

Netanyahu: EU plan to label settlement goods ‘unjust’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday attacked an EU resolution on labelling goods produced in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In a statement released by his office, Netanyahu referred to the plan as “unjust”. “It is simply a distortion of justice and of logic and I think that it also hurts peace; it does not advance peace. The root of the conflict is not the territories, and the root of the conflict is not the settlements.”

The people of New York City mourned and memorialized their losses after the 11 September 2001 attacks, but their counterparts in Gaza are not allowed to recover.

They have had no respite either from Israel’s repeated military assaults, or from its ongoing siege on the territory.

Palestinians in Gaza are demanding a ceasefire that respects their basic humanitarian rights.

Netanyahu: We need pact to preserve Jewish Israel

PM in London says solution to Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians is “a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes a Jewish state, the nation state of the Jewish people.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am certain that Palestine will recognize the Jewish State ... exactly one second after Israel recognizes the Palestinian State! If Israel would only give to others what it demands for itself, all this violence and bloodshed could have been avoided. But as long as Israel maintains their bigoted attitude of "We have a right to exist but you do not", there will be more war in the Middle East.

ISIS militants causing Middle East to 'DISINTEGRATE', says Israel PM Netanyahu

Mr Netanyahu, who is a bitter critic of the nuclear agreement, told Mr Cameron: “The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam – militant Sunnis led by ISIS and militant Shi-ites led by Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And, of course, Israel's constant attacking and bombing of its neighbors such as Gaza, West Bank, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, etc. has absolutely nothing to do with the turmoil in the Middle East, and anyone who says otherwise is just a filthy Jew-0hating anti-Semite who wants Hitler to come back and gas Jewish babies in the ovens, right?

Israel re-arrests nuclear whistle-blower over TV interview

The Israeli regime has once again detained nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu, claiming that he violated the terms of his release from prison by taking part in a recent interview with a local TV station.

The Thursday development came as the Israeli Channel 2 television broadcaster, which aired the interview with Vanunu on September 4, is battling with the regime’s police who demand the "full, unedited footage of the interview," Israeli media say.

The channel refuses to hand over the material, citing the journalistic principle of protecting sources.

In the lengthy interview on Israeli TV on Friday, Vanunu reportedly explained how he once exposed the existence of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and elaborated on a potential disaster which could emanate from Israel’s notorious Dimona facility.

Israel hiding killers who burned Palestinian family alive, minister reveals

Israel’s conduct turned out to be depressingly predictable.

Haaretz reports today that, according to Israel’s defense minister Moshe Yaalon, “Israel’s defense establishment knows who is responsible for the arson attack that killed three members of a Palestinian family two months ago, but has chosen to prevent legal recourse in order to protect the identity of their sources.”

Yaalon reportedly told a closed meeting of activists from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party that three Jewish suspects were put under administrative detention following the attack.

Witnesses had seen the attackers flee to the nearby Israeli settlement of Maaleh Efraim after the Dawabsha home was set on fire.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

It will not be easy to rid the world of the grave dangers created by neocon policies.

The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change.”

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Reham Dawabsheh, 27, has finally succumbed to the critical wounds she sustained when Jewish settlers torched her home at the village of Duma south of Nablus in the West Bank about five weeks ago.

Initially, her toddler, 18-month- old Ali, was burned to death. Two weeks ago, her husband Saad died of injuries sustained in the same incident. Reham, a school teacher, was laid to rest next to her husband and child at her home village Monday 7/9/2015.

Now, her only remaining child is fighting for his life. His overall conditions have been described as “stable and improving.”

The nefarious crime was carried out by ostensibly Messianic Jewish settlers seeking to establish a pure Talmudic Jewish state, which the terrorists believe would expedite and accelerate the appearance of the Redeemer or Jewish Messiah who would usher the age of salvation for Jews and enable them to build a worldwide empire.

Shooting Children Becomes Israeli Policy

Netanyahu’s most recent foray grew out of a late August incident on the West Bank. A series of photographs plus video footage from a protest in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh appeared in the media. They showed a masked IDF soldier trying to arrest a young boy accused of throwing stones, followed by scenes of his mother and teenage sister trying to rescue him. The pictures and video reveal a crying and struggling 11 year old Mohammed Tamimi, with his broken arm in a cast, being held in a headlock and sat upon by the soldier, armed with an assault rifle. The boy’s mother then intervened, pulling on the mask while Mohammed’s 15 year old sister joined in to bite the soldier’s wrist, compelling him to free the boy. The soldier released him, backed off and then threw a grenade at the family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, selective, military genocide against Palestinian children becomes a hardened Israeli policy, courtesy of Netanyahu.

In the great classical tales of Greece, one of the most ugly personality traits in many of the very flawed heroes was hubris, an overweening pride, which causes these people to not see things as they really are.

And ultimately, it will most likely be his hubris which will bring Netanyahu down, geopolitically; he will be judged by history as a thoroughly failed leader who could have made much better choices for the Israeli people in terms of peace and prosperity for the country than he has done to date.

Israel forces make incursion into Gaza Strip, level fields

Israeli military vehicles have carried out a cross-border military incursion into the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to witnesses and local residents, four bulldozers escorted by military vehicles on Tuesday morning crossed into the Palestinian side of the border fence in the east of the city of Khan Younis and leveled fields belonging to local Palestinians, Ma'an News Agency reported.

Sources say Israeli soldiers used smoke grenades to conceal the movement of bulldozers. Palestinian farmers also left their fields, fearing possible shooting by the Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli regime repeatedly launches cross-border raids into Gaza on security pretexts, often razing land near the border in the so-called buffer zone it maintains on the Gaza side of the border.

Israeli forces have also frequently opened fire on Palestinians who approach the so-called buffer zone.

Thousands of Palestinians took part in the funeral of Riham Dawabsha, 27, who died overnight Sunday after succumbing to wounds she sustained more than a month ago in an arson attack on July 31 that killed her husband and 18-month-old son.

The funeral march set off from the entrance of Duma village in southern Nablus and proceeded to the village’s cemetery.

Dawabsha was given a military funeral as members of the Palestinian Authority security forces headed the march.

The 27-year-old mother of two was buried in the village’s cemetery, next to her husband and son who were laid to rest last month.

Dawabsha died hours after her birthday, on Sept. 6, while her husband died on Aug. 8, the couple’s wedding anniversary.

Palestinian Mother Dies fromIsraeli Settler Inflicted Immolation

On July 31, racist Israeli settlers set the Dawabsha family home ablaze, burning 18-month-old old Ali Saad Dawabsha to death, inflicting third-degree burns (the most severe kind) on three other family members - his mother, father and brother Ahmed aged four.

The incident reflects a culture of virtual impunity. Extremist settlers rampage unaccountably against Palestinians, committing near-daily acts of violence and vandalism.

The Dawabsha family lost their home. Baby Ali was burned alive in the blaze, his charred body incinerated beyond recognition.

His father Saad perished days later. He couldn’t recover from third-degree burns covering 80% of his body.

On September 5, Maan News reported his wife, Riham, deteriorated seriously, “leaving her in critical condition, her family said…”

Jewish High Court Demands Pope Francis Apologise for Recognising Palestinian State

A self-declared Israeli Sanhedrin, a religious High Court composed of 71 sages, has demanded that Pope Francis apologise for recognising a separate Palestinian state or face trial next month.

A member of the Palestinian Al-Fatah movement revolutionary council, Demetri Deliani, said the Jewish court has sent a letter to Pope Francis demanding he rescind or face trial on 20 September, and that he will be judged in absentia if he chooses to ignore the summons.

The Vatican officially recognised the State of Palestine in February 2013.

In June, the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organisation to “the state of Palestine” in a treaty that constitutes the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state.

Sanctioned Terrorism

…we must fight sanctioned terrorism today.

What is left unmentioned and unrecognized in our collective psyche is the kind of terrorism that has been deliberately obfuscated: sanctioned terrorism or terrorism with a license – sanctions.

Shamelessly, even after sanctioned terrorism took the life of one million Iraqis, the UNSC licensed terrorism against Iran – sanctions, without any remorse for the lost lives of 1 million Iraqi victims of sanctioned terrorism and untold numbers or other victims across the globe.

The overall failure to identify and deliberately obfuscate this act of terrorism has enabled this premeditated act of terrorism to continue with impunity.The success of this deception is owed to controlling the narrative with complicity from the media.This has been so effective that even the victims of sanctioned terrorism fail to grasp that they are being subjected to terrorism.

We’ve had it coming when the Petraeus surge bribed Sunnis to half-heartedly fight Al-Qaeda in Iraq – which then took its time to reorganize in the heart of the desert, change its name to Islamic State and plot a comeback.

New Report Says Gaza Could Be Uninhabitable Within 5 Years

By Michaela Whitton

As if mass unemployment, poverty, and a blockade that pens almost two million people into 160 square kilometer open prison weren’t bad enough, a U.N. report has said that Gaza could become uninhabitable by 2020.

Surrounded by Egypt to the south, Israel to the north and east, and Israeli gunships to the West (that regularly open fire on Gaza fisherman), 1.8 million Palestinians live in the restricted enclave — a number predicted to rise to 2.1 million by 2020.

According to the report, Israel’s three military operations in the last six years and the eight-year economic blockade have ravaged Gaza’s infrastructure, shattered its production base, and prevented meaningful reconstruction and economic recovery...

True or false doesn’t matter. Israel uses any incident to justify attacking Hamas - launching air and ground attacks, using heavy weapons, often killing and/or wounding civilians.

Gunshots in US communities occur often. Would Washington be justified in launching air or ground attacks in response? In Israel, it’s standard procedure - unaccountable bandit acts.

Syrian Suffering vs. Palestinian Suffering

The tragic photo of the body of a three-year old Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi, drowned in the sea when attempting to flee that war-torn nation with his family, is seared on the minds of all but the most heartless of people who have seen it. Still wearing his little sneakers, he would seem to be only asleep, where he not lying alone, face down, on a Turkish beach, having been washed ashore by the tide. The unspeakable horrors that his desperate family fled, at great and, as it turned out, tragic risk, can only be imagined by anyone who has not experienced them. The entire world is crying out for a resolution to the problems that led to the death of this child, his brother, mother and countless other desperate refugees.

Gaza could soon become uninhabitable, UN report predicts

A hard-hitting new United Nations report says Gaza could become uninhabitable in less than five years if current economic and population trends continue.

It cites what it describes as the “de-development” of the blockaded coastal strip, which is at present home to some 1.8 million Palestinians but is expected to grow to 2.1 million by 2020.

“De-development” describes a process where development is not only hindered but actually reversed. Findings by the UN conference on trade and development point to the eight-year economic blockade of Gaza as well as the three wars between Israel and the Palestinians over the past six years.

The head of Russia’s Chechen Republic claims the current asylum seeker crisis in European countries originated in the aggressive policies of the United States and the EU. He also called upon all Muslim nations to jointly fight the root of the problem.

“If today no one rises against the inhumane policies of the Western countries, tomorrow the disaster may come to any Muslim country. I call upon you to urgently discuss this problem, to develop a unified position and to save the lives of thousands of people,” Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram account (Kadyrov uses Instagram as a social network for public statements).

“Tens of thousands of Muslims are dying. Women, old people, children and young people as well. Under such conditions the leaders of Islamic countries has no right to remain silent, to stand aside and remain simple observers,” he added.

How EU officials shrugged off aid to Israeli settlements

During the past few years, the European Commission, the EU’s executive bureaucracy, has been questioned by many Palestine solidarity activists on why it approved scientific research grants to the cosmetics-maker Ahava.

The EU hierarchy was — rightly — made to feel awkward by these questions. Ahava’s main factory is located in a Jewish-only settlement in the West Bank; like all other nations in the world, EU governments regard Israel’s construction and expansion of those colonies as contrary to international law.

Gaza: A Socioeconomic Dead Zone

snip: Gaza already is “unlivable.” Israeli inflicted pain, suffering and deprivation is suffocating an entire population - slow-motion genocide by any standard, while the world community yawns and does nothing to stop one of history’s great crimes.

It’s just a matter of time before another Israeli war, premeditated aggression - on whatever pretext it invents to justify the unjustifiable.

Israeli night raids a routine terror for Palestinian children

It’s a regular and terrifying scene in the occupied West Bank: heavily armed Israeli soldiers, often with large dogs, raid a Palestinian family’s home. They wake the children, arresting one or more of them.

This is what happened to Hamza Muayyad Shukri Hammad, 15, when his home in Silwad, a village near Ramallah, was invaded at 2am on Sunday.

As reported by the Arabic-language Quds news site, Hamza’s mother said that during the two-hour raid on her family’s home, Hamza and his 10-year-old brother, Bilal, were detained.

Soldiers raided Hamza’s room, ransacking it. They confiscated phones and smart devices from the home and a computer was deliberately smashed.

Last year’s war displaced half a million people and left parts of Gaza destroyed.

"I have no precondition to reach negotiations, I'm willing to drive to Ramallah or anyplace else now in order to run direct negotiations," Netanyahu said.

The PM is equally determined to proceed to the two-state solution and is all in favor of a demilitarized Palestinian state alongside Israel, according to the statement.

Israel is “Targeting Christian-Palestinian Communities in the West Bank”. Confiscating Lives, One Hectare at a Time

The expansion of Israel’s ‘separation barrier’ is targeting Christian-Palestinian communities in the West Bank, reports Noreen Sadik.

On 17 August, Issa al-Shatleh, of Beit Jala, Palestine, started his day with news that Israeli soldiers were on the land that had belonged to his family for hundreds of years. When he arrived, he found ‘they were destroying the land, and cutting my ancient olive trees, some hundreds of years old’. ‘They came without a warning,’ he said.

And it is not just al-Shatleh’s land that is being confiscated. Close to 3 hectares of private land were razed that morning and 45 trees, some of them over 100 years old, were uprooted. As landowners tried to stop the destruction, violent clashes broke out, sending al-Shatleh’s brother to the hospital.

Palestinians Protest Israeli Settlers' Seizure of Hospital

Dozens of Palestinians staged demonstrations outside the Al-Baraka hospital complex in the Southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil) to protest the occupation of the premises by Jewish settlers.

The demonstrations, which included a number of Palestinian Christians, were organized by local popular resistance committees, Anadolu reported.

“Palestinians will never accept Israel's policy of illegal Jewish settlement,” Fr. Attallah Hanaa, a Palestinian Christian clergyman who participated in the protest, told the agency.

“We will always reject Israel's seizure of Islamic and Christian institutions,” he said.

“We are of this land; it is our home, our history, our identity,” the priest added. “And we will never surrender it to the Israeli occupiers.”

According to Israeli daily Haaretz, the settlers claim to have purchased the hospital complex from a US-based Christian NGO through a Swedish firm that served as middleman.

Stung by BDS, Israel mistreats US Palestinians at border crossings

The US is tolerating Israel’s mistreatment of US citizens of Palestinian origin, Arab-American advocates are saying. Israeli authorities have recently refused entry to several Palestinians with US passports, including an outspoken activist.

When Nerdeen Kiswani tried to cross into the West Bank at the Allenby Bridge crossing, she was interrogated for 15 hours, and then denied entry based on her “hostile behavior towards Israel.”

Kiswani, a student at CUNY Staten Island and Hunter College in New York City, has crossed without much trouble in 2013 and 2014. Last month, however, Israeli border guards interrogated her about her political activism, including the involvement with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Her US passport meant nothing to the Israelis, Kiswani told RT.

“It doesn’t matter to them what passport Palestinians hold,” she said.

Cameron Ennobles Director of British Israel Lobby

There is currently a petition on the House of Commons website that demands the arrest of Netanyahu should he try to visit the UK in September. This petition is now expected to reach 100,000 signatures within the next few days.

However, notwithstanding the strength of feeling in the UK against Israeli brutality, Cameron has stunned British voters by proposing to ennoble the director of the British Israel lobby that condones the illegal settlements and the brutal killings by the IDF.

This perverse decision would mean, if ratified, that effectively, an agent of the Israeli government in Tel Aviv would be sitting in the House of Lords, in London – in the second chamber of the British Parliament.

That is a position that would be deemed anti-democratic at best and unacceptable to those who require our legislators to hold an unequivocal allegiance exclusively to the democratic institutions of the United Kingdom.

To slowly savour the luminescent beauty of the writing: human life, generically Palestinian, from the minute to the magnificent, is caught in the net of Abulhawa’s lyrical genius and comes up from the depths of her creativity shimmering.

We Palestinians don’t expect miracles from the Arabs. We don’t expect them to liberate Palestine from the River to the Sea. We don’t even expect them to liberate al-Quds Ash-sharif and al-Masjidul Aqsa from the clutches of Zionism.

However, there are certain tasks the Arabs could easily do to enable our people to survive and be steadfast as we have done since the Nakba 67 years ago.

Rich Arab states, such as the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia, can and should allow more Palestinians to seek employment opportunities in their respective countries. The Palestinians are skilled, educated and can be trusted to perform their duties without endangering the internal security of these states.

US lawmaker wants Israel military aid halted over Palestinian deaths

“It is time for a strong and unequivocal statement of US commitment to the human rights of Palestinian children living under Israeli occupation,” McCollum wrote in the August 18 letter, which was released to the public on Monday.

McCollum urged State Department officials to determine whether the killing of the teens was in violation of the Leahy Act, a US human rights law that prohibits the State and Defense departments from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights with impunity.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Gaza hospitals face imminent shutdown

Several main Gaza hospitals face the prospect of an immediate shutdown due to an energy crisis that has lasted for months, the Gaza Health Ministry said Monday.

“Shifa Hospital, Kamal Adwan hospital, the European Gaza Hospital, and Rantisi Hospital could stop offering services because they are about to run out of fuel,” said Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson for the ministry. “The current situation is the worst since the Ministry of Health was created in the Gaza Strip,” he added.

The Gaza Strip receives energy from Egypt and Israel, in addition to one local power plant, but due to power shortages, hospitals are forced to rely on private generators. Recent months have seen a crisis which is now coming to a head, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.

In addition to the energy crisis, the hospitals face many other challenges, including damages incurred during last summer’s war, medicine shortages and staff strikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where in the name of heaven is someone to speak for that child, writhing in pain in this picture?!?

One has to wonder if one part of the Israel Government's "final solution" toward Gazan Palestinians is to have inflicted as much physical and emotional pain while they are in hospital, particularly to children and toddlers, by not having proper medications and dressings, and claim it is "someone else's fault."

Doctors Without Borders, where the hell are you?!?

There should be a campaign of embarrassment and shame, directed at both the Israeli and Palestinian leadership, to get this sorted, and I mean, IMMEDIATELY.

No child in the world should be suffering like this, when proper resources are so close.

Aug 24 14:44


In recent days, anti-Palestinian organizations have been crowing over the disinvitation of Matthew Paul Miller, an American Jewish singer who uses the stage name Matisyahu, from the Rototom Sunsplash music festival in Valencia, Spain.

Amid cries of anti-Semitism from the Anti-Defamation League and the World Jewish Congress and condemnation by the government of Spain, the incident has become the latest stick with which to beat the Palestinian-led movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS).

“The festival organizers contacted me because they were getting pressure from the BDS movement,” Millerwrote on his Facebook page on 17 August. “They wanted me to write a letter, or make a video, stating my positions on Zionism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to pacify the BDS people.”

“My music speaks for itself, and I do not insert politics into my music,” he claimed.

Aug 23 08:36


For the past ten years the International BDS Movement has been the most vocal and respected Movement against the occupation of Palestine.

It has grown rapidly, especially in the Jewish sectors on US campuses. Its fight for Justice has caused alarm in zionist circles and has been the target of anti-Semitic charges by Israel itself, all of which are unjustifed and untrue.

Attempts by the Israeli government to blackmail the BDS leadership have failed and will continue to do so. Instead, victory after victory have been celebrated throughout the world as BDS wins battle after battle.

Last week the organisors of a Reggae Festival in Valencia cancelled an invitation to a Jewish American because of his refusal to publicly support the creation of a Palestinian State. The decision was made after the Valencia BDS Movement put pressure on the group. It was a decision that was applauded worldwide including on this Blog itself.

In Israel, Huckabee goes against longstanding U.S. policy

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Wednesday rejected the notion that the West Bank is occupied territory insisting instead that the largely Palestinian-populated territory is part of Israel.

Huckabee's statements -- during a trip to Israel -- fly in the face of international law and longstanding U.S. policy, which consider the West Bank as occupied territory and the construction of additional settlements in that territory illegal.

"I don't see it as occupied," Huckabee said Wednesday during a press conference in Jerusalem. "That makes it appear as if someone is illegally taking land. I don't see it that way."

'Desperate situation': UN confirms typhoid at Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus

Typhoid has broken out at a Palestinian refugee camp in the Syrian capital, with at least 6 cases confirmed, according to the UN. The body is concerned that these cases are just “the tip of the iceberg," warning of "massive" risks of other diseases.

The cases confirmed by the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) come from blockaded Yarmouk refugee camp in the south of Damascus, which houses displaced Palestinian refugees and Syrian civilians. Over 200 medical consultations have been carried out.

"Our concern is that these typhoid cases only represent the tip of the iceberg, because the erosion of health services and appalling public health standards create a massive, massive risk of diseases breaking out," UNWRA spokesman Chris Gunness told Reuters, adding that the “situation is desperate.”

Like many of the horrific events surrounding the creation of the state of Israel, the massacre on April 9, 1948 has been quietly dropped down the memory hole. It was a horrific tale of British betrayal and Jewish ruthlessness, and is still too embarrassing for both Jewish elites and the British government.

Fatah: Israel attempts to turn PA into expanded municipality

Member of Fatah executive committee Mohamed Ishtea said on Friday that Israel does not want a Palestinian state based upon the 1967 borders because it recognises that this would contribute to its end, Qudsnet reported.

During the inauguration of a conference about Palestinian refugees in the refugee camp of Ayda in the West Bank, he said that Israel wants the Palestinians to remain living in small scattered cantons.

Ishtea stressed that the Oslo Agreement happened during a very difficult political situation for the Arab countries, noting that there was a number of positive points in the agreement such as the return of 150,000 Palestinian refugees and the establishment of the state.

Meanwhile, he said that there are many negative points in the agreement, which have to be corrected by spreading national awareness and rebuilding the PLO, thus enabling it to carry out its role as a home for all the Palestinians.
