The Ghosts of Terezin

Palestinian Victims of Occupation

According to the World Bank, Israelis make $25,740 per year, while Palestinians make $1,230. Living costs are essentially the same for both.

We are all the same

As I was getting ready to leave my house this morning, I was half-listening to Democracy Now on the tv....until Norman Finkelstein came on, and then my ears perked up like Yoda from Star Wars! Finkelstein was talking about something near and dear to my heart: The Horrible treatment of the Palestinian people.

This particular subject has been brewing in my mind for many years....ever since Gene Burns, talk radio host, began mentioning the intifada back in the 1980's.

What is the Intifada ?

"It literally means "shaking off", and in this context it means to set free from the Israeli oppression. The first intifada started on 8th Dec 1987 when four Palestinian men queuing at a checkpoint into Gaza were crushed to death by an Israeli army transporter. The second Intifada started on 28th Sept 2000 when Sharon with over 2,000 Israeli soldiers desecrated the Al Aqsa Mosque and killed 4 people."

Since then, my curiosity led me to a little group known as The Project for a New American Century...PNAC for short. A group of neo-con henchmen roaming around behind the scenes of our government since their college days. Yes, my friends, these are well known names in our lexicon--and depending on your political bent, they can be seen as well-meaning political operatives, or demagogues facilitating America's destruction. You decide. William Kristol, Karl Rove, Richard Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld...the full list of reprobates can be found here:


in the G.W. BUSH Administration!

The point is, regardless of how you feel about them, make no mistake; they have shaped the current situation we are living through and surely have their hands in all pies, from the invasion of Iraq to the despicable bombardment of unarmed citizens in Gaza.

Here's a little primer from a pretty cool web-site:

SOTT Focus / Best of the Web

"William Kristol, PNAC member and son of CIA asset Irving Kristol. Kristol and Richard "Prince of Darkness" Perle were two of the major shapers of Bush's war policy. Perle, of course, is a long-time spy for Israel. As an aid for Senator Henry Jackson in 1970, Perle was caught passing classified information to the Israeli embassy. Jackson refused to fire him, and since then Perle's influence has only grown."

PNAC's influence is big too. As far back as 1998, they sent a letter to then- President William Jefferson Clinton, laying out their reasons to invade Iraq. Well-known Israeli-Firsters, their imprint must surely be in Gaza."

I bring this up now, because what I heard Finkelstein say today is so much more un-Constitutional, un-American and in-humane than anything this Healthcare Bill represents, that I cannot believe no one is suing the government for IT instead!

No one is suing, no one is protesting, no one is screaming on the floor of the House, no one is even acknowledging the existence! But it is a degradation far more insidious and dangerous than anything we are hearing debate about now.

Here is the awful truth to which Finkelstein grasped my attention this morning:

We the people of America, with our tax dollars, are the ones who paid for, provided the weapons for, and manufactured the white phosphorous for that horrendous massacre of civilans in Gaza! Those beautiful babies and beautiful gramma's and beautiful aunts and uncles, mommies and daddies. We bank-rolled their demise! And here we are arguing about the constitutionality of a healthcare we can kill it! It blows my mind. It leaves me speechless.

No one says anything. The Goldstone Report, which is full of heart-breaking and LAW breaking facts, is denied by the United States of America. American ships with American citizens in them are turned back from Gaza by Israeli tankers.....

And we cry for Insurance companies.

We live in Bizarro World.


Christian Zionism and Islamophobia

Pieces of silver

"While World War II history has been sanitized, some historians can still discern the truth, which is the Zionists have sacrificed Jews to gain the “moral authority” in order to greatly institutionalize their “Holocaust” and to steal and plunder Palestine and eliminate all native Palestinians with constant genocide.

In Jewish writer, Ben Hecht’s book, Perfidy, he tells how the Zionist bankers (who funded Hitler) sacrificed 1,000,000 European Jews by refusing Adolph Eichmann’s offer (with total authorization from Hitler and Himmler) to free those Jews in exchange for merely 1,000 tons of coffee and tea and 10,000 trucks."

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

A forensic search of, and dozens of other objectionable websites has shown that the Anti-Defamation League headed by Abe Foxman, is funding them and that ADL workers along with volunteers are managing these “NAZI” websites.

These and other websites are used by the ADL in a pattern of massive piracy and copyright violation, a pattern of criminal activity that violates their tax exempt status with the IRS.

"Netanyahu represents the worst of rogue leadership. He defies rule of law principles and other democratic values. He's contemptuous of Palestinian rights. He threatens world peace.

He's defiant. He won't touch defense spending. He menaces the region. He endangers his own people.Megalomania and delusions of grandeur define him.

His mindset is messianic. He's a loose cannon. He's out-of-control. Hardliners around him share his vision. His Iranian obsession threatens Israel. His "bomb or be bombed" rhetoric reflects bluster. It demands condemnation and rejection.

He lied. Current and former Israeli officials deplore him. Some went public and said so. Israelis aren't paying attention. On January 22, he's favored to remain prime minister."

Is "5 Broken Cameras" the 1st-ever Oscar nom for a Palestinian film? I think so! Many thanks 2 the Israeli citizens who generously funded it

And thanks too to the Israeli co-director who helped this incredible 1st-time Palestinian filmmaker make his movie and have his voice heard!

Justice denied

What still is....
"With Palestine now able to seek redress for war crimes by Israel in the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Israel is seeking to silence all dissent, Palestinian and otherwise, that would aid in their prosecution."

Creeping Theft of Greed


Invisible people

"Seven to eight hundred thousand Palestinians were driven from their homes and lands, into exile in foreign countries or into Gaza . They are a people without a homeland, contrary to the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. No passports, no recognized rights to employment or medical care or support of any kind—in Beirut and other cities in Lebanon , in Syria , in Jordan . To this day they live in refugee camps, thousands imprisoned with no place to go, no right of return, yet any Jew living anywhere in the world, who never stepped foot in Palestine, who has no Semitic blood in his/her veins, has a “right of return.” How can this be? Where is the justice?"

Same as it ever was


I saw the pictures children drew at Terezin
As they clustered in the attic's closing darkness, --
Pictures of the sun beyond the rain,
Of Mothers muffled in scarves and solemn dress,
Of Fathers proud beneath their yarmulkas, --
All waiting patiently the promised day
When they would board the silver train
And flee to the Holy City.

And I wept at their plight,
The silent, unknown, gnawing fright
That burned within their Ghetto of sin,
This Terezin.

And then before my eyes there came
Another scene, so strange, as if incarnate in the first
That burst untimely before my weeping heart;
A scene more ravaged than Terezin,
Of streets and alleys swamped in sewage and despair
Where children breathed the fetid air of hate
That smoldered like steaming ashes there.

Suddenly appeared above the graves, the ghosts of Terezin,
Arising like mist around the crematorium;
Fathers and Mothers, in their promised land at last,
Grasping children to their breasts.
Silent as sentinels they stood,
And there they wept as they watched in vain
The wardens wander through the camps
Like Gestapo agents of old,
Stark, cold, indifferent to the pain
Of those who huddled beneath the tin roofs,
Encased like the dead in cement boxes
As the acrid stench of lingering sewage
Flowed through the alleys and the homes.

They saw the tanks rattle through the streets
With ranks of soldiers scurrying behind,
Seeking the vermin that infested this place, –
Homeless, nameless, without a face, --
Sneaking through this ghetto in the dark of night
To drive the children from this transport town,
This resurrected refugee camp, this new Terezin,
Where the new Jew wanders the world
Like the Jews of Terezin,
Joined in their loneliness and despair
As they watch their children there
Become the walls of Terezin!

Gilad Atzmon

"For now, I would advise the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC to adopt a more universal approach and, rather than focusing solely on the suffering of Jews, to look into the suffering inflicted on Palestinians by the Jewish State because, as far as we can see, the whole of Palestine is now an open air prison."

With only just over thirty members and an extravagant Grade II listed Moorish building, the tiny Jewish community of Bradford have for many years been in despair about their finances - until the local Muslim community stepped in to help.

The grand-looking Reform synagogue, is on an unassuming street, between the Yorkshire Tandoori, Al-Hijaab Islamic Clothing and the Jamia Shan-E-Islam Educational Centre.

Built in 1880, it has long been under threat of closure, but several Muslim organisations in the city have pledged to stop it falling into ruin, with donors giving £2,000 to save the synagogue's roof.

Seeing With Different Eyes

"That’s why Netanyahu and his supporters cannot see the world through the eyes of a Palestinian child. Because nothing more profoundly illustrates how the world really has changed. To truly look at the world through that Palestinian child’s eyes is to see ourselves as we have always seen others: powerful, alien, terrifying. It is to realize that today it is no longer Jewish children who grow up watching their parents laugh and shrug and cry, and struggle to maintain their precious heritage and human dignity under the control of a foreign army. That experience, the one that every Jew identifies with in her bones, is no longer ours. It is the Palestinians’. By clinging to it, by insisting that we are still the real victims, we free ourselves from our moral obligations to that child.

But the message of Exodus is not that freeing yourself from bondage frees you from moral obligation. To the contrary, the whole point of linking Passover and Shavuot, as Jewish tradition does, is to link the Jewish escape from oppression with the Jewish acceptance of the moral responsibilities that come with receiving the Torah. To disavow those moral responsibilities, our tradition suggests, is to not be truly free.

“It is our duty, to ourselves and to our children, to see the new world as it is now,” said Yitzhak Rabin upon being sworn in as Israel’s prime minister in 1992. “No longer are we necessarily ‘a people that dwells alone,’ and no longer is it true that ‘the whole world is against us.’ We must overcome the sense of isolation that has held us in thrall for almost half a century.” The year after that speech, Benjamin Netanyahu compared Rabin to Neville Chamberlain for signing the Oslo Accords. And two years after that, after being endlessly compared to a Nazi, Rabin was murdered by a Jew who claimed that Oslo threatened Jewish lives.

Today, in Jerusalem, Obama stood on Rabin’s shoulders: “the world can change.” He too declared that because Jews are not the world’s permanent victims, we must use our power to help ensure that Palestinians are not either. Tomorrow, on Mount Herzl, Obama will visit Rabin’s grave. Then, in the precious little time that’s left, he must try to finish his work."

President Barack Obama

The Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and justice must also be recognized. Put yourself in their shoes — look at the world through their eyes.

It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.

--James M Wall reporting

Love is the Answer

MJ Rosenberg, a former AIPAC staffer

“the most significant part” of Obama’s speech came when the President referred to the Palestinians’ right to justice, specifically referencing settler violence that goes unpunished”

Rosenberg adds that he believes Obama is the first US president to use “the language of justice in discussing Palestinian rights, which is, of course, how Palestinians rightly see it”.


"Israel has created distinct zones that prevent Palestinians from moving freely throughout the area. The zoning leaves only six percent of the land for Palestinians while ninety-four percent is allocated to Israeli settlements (which are illegal according to the UN), military zones, and nature reserves. The military zones are called “firing zones.” The Israeli military performs exercises in the firing zones, demanding that Palestinians move out or face military eviction, which can include demolition of their homes. There have been 200 such demolitions since 2011. The Israeli government has also shut off access to clean water and electricity.

By contrast Israelis who live in the area receive financial assistance to encourage settlement expansion, and they benefit from modern infrastructure unavailable to Palestinians living in the same area. The residents of ten Israeli settlements in the firing zones rarely, if ever, face the possibility of having their homes demolished."

A Human Tragedy

God help us, enough!
God help us, enough!

Crimes Against Humanity

"Israel jails 700 children every year. It is clearly legal, but utterly illegitimate.Most children prosecuted in Israeli military courts are charged with throwing stones. This is an offence under Section 212 of Military Order 1651. It says: (i) Throwing an object, including a stone, at a person or property with the intent to harm the person or property carries a maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment."

"The jailing of children and other crimes committed by Israel and regularly condemned by the UN and other international organizations are crimes against humanity to the extent that Israel was defined as “terror-inflicting” by the UN Human Rights Council. Israel cannot judge itself. An international court, like the one that judged Nazis in Nuremberg, must be created for the task."

I'm with you on this one. Aside from the war crimes in Gaza our support of Israel is a significant factor feeding terrorism against the U.S. and other western countries. A two state resolution, securing Israel and creating a Palestinian state, would be very helpful in stemming terrorism aimed at the U.S.

Zionism=Nazi. We need to wake up!

Sat Dec 29, 2012 7:35PM

By Wayne Madsen

"Adolf Hitler and other top Nazis were fond of saying, "Heute Deutschland, morgen die Welt!" (“Today Germany, tomorrow the world!”), when describing the Nazi Party’s goals for global domination. Many of Israel’s dominant political parties espouse the same goals for Zionism, which many observers believe take a page from the Nazi playbook when it comes to expansion not only in the occupied territories of Palestine but beyond to the Golan Heights of Syria, southern Lebanon, Sinai, eastern Libya, northern Iraq, and even further afield.

As expansionistic as the Likud-Beitenu bloc is, the rising star of Naftali Bennett, a dual U.S.-Israeli national who leads the new Home Party is even more nationalistic."

and this Zionist, who was bank-rolling the GOP candidate for prez!!!

I'm sick of USA being used. By people whose 1st loyalty is to Israel.

"As long as the Anglo American Empire is top dog of the world the criminals are shielded by military, media , secret service and other means of mass manipulation tactics to achieve their goal."

"The objections against Hagel’s nomination sounded off by hard-core neocons and, above all, by the Zionist cabal in the Congress and the media questioning his pro-Israel and anti-Iran credentials are equally significant. Significant, because by nominating Chuck Hagel, President Obama has masterfully put on public display the unhealthy, almost seditious, attitude of influence peddlers who are willing to put America’s own national interests in jeopardy to serve their puppeteers."

"Israeli election results hardened fascist rule. Dominant right-wing parties control 102 of 120 Knesset seats.

Israelis have themselves to blame. They elected Israel's most extremist government in history. Militarism, belligerence, state-sponsored terrorism, occupation ruthlessness, settlement expansions, and neoliberal harshness reflect official policy."


This is like us in 2010.....and they will see the same results, IMO.

When you allow people to be persecuted because of your ideology....nothing good can come of it.

We have seen it here---they will see it there.

It's ALWAYS the same...."they came for them, and I didn't care...until they came for ME"

"Yigal Palmor, speaking for Israel, made it clear that Israel planned to continue to violate international law and felt it was not subject to UN resolution, the Geneva Convention or the International Criminal Court at The Hague.

Palmor indicated that god had given Israel all land from the Nile to the Euphrates and that there is clear biblical reference that can never be disputed or discussed."

"If we are going to live subject to total lawlessness, then so be it. Perhaps it is time we shed the pretense."

Long since shed the pretense. Happened in 2000, with the election of the neo-con and their dual-citizen enablers.

“We Jews forced the Arabs to leave….Here was a people who lived on its own land for 1,300 years. We came and turned the native Arabs into tragic refugees. And still we dare to slander and malign them, to besmirch their name. Instead of being deeply ashamed of what we did and of trying to undo some of the evil we committed by helping these unfortunate refugees, we justify our terrible acts and even attempt to glorify them”

"Those who have lost the support of more than a passionate minority are often driven to defame and vilify those who disagree with them. Intimidation is necessary only when one cannot make a persuasive case for one’s position. As the case for the coincidence of American interests and values with those of Israel has lost credibility, the lengths to which Israel’s partisans go to denounce those who raise questions about Israel’s behavior have reached levels that invite ridicule, parody, melancholy, and disgust."

"Economy Minister Naftali Bennett has said: "I've killed lots of Arabs in my life, and there's no problem with that."

It's not Bennett, that's his natural environment. Raful, who in his day proposed filling the West Bank with settlements until the Arabs could only scurry around "like drugged cockroaches in a bottle," caused the Transportation Ministry to name a tunnel after him, the one built at the entrance to the cities of cockroaches, Iksal and Nazareth. Since then the tree of evil has only grown, with its roots planted deep in the soil: A minister boasts of killing Arabs, a leader in the ruling party wants to expel them, a mayor is in favor of cleansing his city of them and a parliamentary majority wants to get rid of their representatives. It's lucky that there are Arabs. Otherwise, where would all this evil with which we are blessed accumulate?"

Uri Avnery – the Old Man of the Israeli peace movement

Uri Avnery and Adam Keller of Gush Shalom, the Israeli Peace Bloc, sent an open letter to the European Union Foreign Ministers due to meet tomorrow (Sept. 6).

We called upon them to persist with their outspoken opposition to settlement construction in the Occupied Territories.

Media reports indicate that settlements and the situation between Israel and the Palestinians are likely to figure on the meeting’s agenda, together with other Middle Eastern issues such as the situation in Syria and Egypt.

“We would like you to know that many in Israel consider your position against settlements to be an expression of true friendship and concern towards Israel” stated the Gush Shalom letter. “It is Israel’s existential interest to come to terms with the fact that in today’s world it is unacceptable to rule over another people by force, confiscate that people’s land and settle on it. The European Union would best help Israel’s true interests by insisting unflinchingly on this principle."

"With the Israeli government moving closer towards implementation of a massive ethnic cleansing campaign known as the Prawer-Begin Plan, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to spin the “Jewish and democratic state” as anything other than a racist experiment. But that hasn’t stopped mainstream US outlets from performing language wizardry in an attempt to distort the latest atrocity about to be committed by America’s greatest ally.

Absent outside intervention, the Prawer Plan will destroy 35 unrecognized Arab villages in the Negev (Naqab) desert, forcibly removing 40,000 Bedouin citizens of Israel from their ancestral lands. Israel will then “concentrate” them into reservation-style cities, where, as journalist Max Blumenthal recently explained, “they will be transformed into an urban proletariat to basically serve the Jewish population.” Meanwhile, Jewish-only neighborhoods will be erected over the ashes of their destroyed villages to combat the “demographic threat” posed by non-Jews in a country invested in ethnic purity.

It’s a racist campaign of dispossession and ethnic cleansing, plain and simple."

Imagine waging war on kids. Imagine doing it no-holds-bared. A joint Four Corners/The Australian broadsheet investigation discusses ruthless Israeli treatment.

Palestinian boys are targeted. Beatings, arrests, detentions and torture follow. More on it below.

In November 2011, the weekend Australian magazine headlined "Stone cold justice," saying:

"You hear them before you see them." You hear "a shuffle of shoes and a clinking of handcuffs and shackles."

Four boys look bewildered in an Israeli military courtroom. Palestinians are denied civil justice.

"They wear brown prison overalls..." They're treated like hardened criminals. Military injustice awaits them. Guilt by accusation follows.

A new "Stone Cold Justice" report updated the earlier one. Australian lawyer Gerard Horton is involved.

He's trying to help arrested Palestinian boys. Three are discussed. More on them below.

Hundreds of Palestinians are mistreated annually. They're lawlessly arrested and detained. Children young as five are terrorized. They're too young to know why.

Imagine facing prison for stone-throwing. Imagine it awaiting hundreds whether or not they're guilty as charged.

Imagine being systematically abused. Imagine violating their fundamental rights. Imagine Israel doing it contemptuously. Imagine no way to stop it.

Israeli military court prosecutions produce nearly 100% convictions. Virtually no Palestinian is found innocent. Children are abusively treated. Some end up in adult prisons.

Trials are short as 60 seconds of less. Guilt pronouncements and sentencings complete them. Independent observers say they never saw anything like it anywhere.

Israel wants what goes on suppressed. Most Palestinians are lawlessly charged. They're coerced to confess. They're terrorized.

They're severely tortured. They're forced to sign Hebrew confessions they don't understand. They're brutalized until they agree.

Israel's criminal injustice system is like Guantanamo for kids. Many don't understand what's happening. Families can't intervene to help. Nor legal counsel except to plea bargain.

It bears repeating. Once charged, guilt by accusation follows. There's no escape. Generations of Palestinians have been abused this way. It's been ongoing for nearly half a century.

Gross mistreatment leaves lasting scars. Traumas don't go away. Emotional harm lasts. For many it's for a lifetime.

Imagine treating young children like hardened criminals. Imagine denying them due process. Imagine no judicial fairness. Imagine Nazism writ large.

Israel is a lawless police state. It's one of the world's most ruthless. Palestinians are targeted for being non-Jews. Praying to the wrong God is considered terrorism. So is self-defense.

Stone Cold Justice focuses on three Palestinian boys. Two were arrested in the middle of the night. They were taken to unknown locations. According to one boy's mother:

"Every soldier stood at the door of a room. I (addressed one of them saying) "What do you want with him?

He said 'Shut up woman.' And then they started hitting him and pulling him out of bed."

Her son said "(t)hey started kicking (him) with their boots in (his) stomach, slaps on (his) face. They pulled (him) up by (his) t-shirt and took (him) out of bed."

Israel calls this maintaining security. Palestinians call it institutionalized persecution. Enforced ruthlessness makes life intolerable.

"(T)hey want to kick us out out of here and drive us away because they don't want Arabs in this area."

Israel's Foreign Ministry lies claiming otherwise. Ethnic cleansing is longstanding Israeli policy. So is maximum land theft with minimum Arabs.

UNICEF released a scathing report. It said "children (are) threatened with death, physical violence, solitary confinement and sexual assault."

Other reports say the same things and more. Four Corners said "Palestinian children have more to fear than the Israeli army."

Reporter John Lyons (presented) clear evidence that "Israeli settlers in the West Bank regularly attack Palestinian school children, knowing authorities will not intervene."

On February 10, Stone Cold Justice aired. Presenter Kerry O'Brien discussed "a new generation of hatred in the making."

Imagine heavily armed soldiers making middle-of-the-night raids. Imagine it in Australia or any civilized society. Imagine arresting young children in their beds.

Imagine beating and kicking them. Imagine cuffing and blindfolding them. Imagine ordering parents not to intervene.

Imagine military prisons with young kids in shackles. Imagine isolating them from society outside. Imagine brutal interrogations.

Imagine no-holds-barred torture. Imagine forcing innocent kids to confess. Imagine brutalizing them until they do. Imagine the worst crimes against humanity.

Imagine hundreds of Palestinian children mistreated this way annually. Lyons said imagine a "peaceful evening in a small Palestinian village. A 14-year-old boy and his family sleep."

Vehicles arrive in the middle of the night. Soldiers are making a raid. Asai Zamara is targeted. He's a young teenager.

Soldiers claim he threw stones. He insists he did nothing wrong. It doesn't help. An "18 day nightmare" begins.

Qsai Zamara: "There was this big machine with all the electric wires in it, connected to the electricity. He wanted to give me electric shock with it."

"He would throw me on the ground and hit me, things like that. He also had a whip with a hose which he hit me with."

John Lyons: "Fathi Mahfouz would spend the next 82 days in prison - beginning with an interrogation."

He's 15 years old. He's innocent. Accusations were baseless. It didn't matter. He was brutalized to confess.

Faithi Mahfouz: "They were holding electric batons and they hit me with them. One of the officers lifted up his mask."

"They all had charcoal on their faces and their eyes were black. He would talk to me and frown at me to scare me and he hit me. He gave me electric shocks."

Horton said interrogators "started yelling at him and then (he) was placed on some sort of wooden device on the wall, similar in shape to a cross, although if had two legs."

His hands and legs were shackled to it. He was left there that way for hours. Faithi said "(b)ecause of all the shaking, a piece of wood snapped."

An interrogator kept hitting him. He asked "(d)on't you want to confess?" Faithi said he wouldn't "confess to something (he) didn't do."

Beatings continued to force him. After five hours, he was released from the structure.

He was in pain, he said. "Then white foam started coming out of my mouth. Two men came and took me to first aid."

"Then my chest was cramped. I couldn't breathe. They took me to the same area I was in, to the same building, there was this small clinic."

"He took me in and asked me 'Where's the pain?' Then he'd press on it and hit it, and make fun of me."

John Lyons: "As a 14-year old, Islam Dar Ayyoub (faced) Israel's security services."

Islam Dar Ayyoub: "He told me 'Here, sign this paper.' I told him 'It's in Hebrew and I can't read Hebrew. Can you read it to me?' "

"He said 'It's for your release. You need to sign it.' After I signed it at the court, I was surprised to find out it was a confession paper."

Hundreds of Palestinian boys face this type injustice annually. Attorney Gerard Horton is leading a campaign against systemic Israeli injustice.

Horton: Middle-of-the-night arrests have "a paralyzing effect on whole communities..."

State-sponsored "fear…makes this system work so effectively well with relatively few soldiers on the ground..."

It makes occupation harshness "cost-effective." It's ruthless state terror on the cheap. It's standard Israeli practice.

Jawhar and Adam were on their way home from a training session in the Faisal al-Husseini Stadium on January 31 when Israeli forces fired upon them as they approached a checkpoint. After being shot repeatedly, they were mauled by checkpoint dogs and then beaten. Ten bullets were put into Jawhar’s feet. Adam took one bullet in each foot.

Jewish Jihad:

"Because of the upcoming scheduled visit by Pope Francis to Israel, the issue has finally popped up in the US media yesterday. The Washington Post reports:

“Catholic leaders in Jerusalem are increasingly concerned that an apparent uptick in nationalistic hate crimes by Jewish extremists against Christians and Muslims could mar the upcoming visit of Pope Francis.

On Friday, for the second time this week, anti-Christian graffiti was discovered on a church in Jerusalem. It follows a similar incident Monday at the Notre Dame Center, a complex in Jerusalem owned by the Vatican. The defacements come after more than 20 major hate crimes in the past few months have targeted Christian and Muslim communities here.”

More from the Israeli press here…

Times of Israel

The Rumanian Orthodox Church on Hahoma Hashlishit street in Jerusalem was defaced overnight Thursday-Friday, in yet another suspected “price tag” hate crime attack, police said Friday, in the latest incident in a wave of both anti-Christian and anti-Arab graffiti and vandalism that has swept the country in recent weeks.

The words “price tag,” “Jesus is garbage” and “King David for the Jews,” were found spray-painted on the site’s walls.

Church members returned from a trip to Ben Gurion Airport around 1 a.m. to find the graffiti written on the side of the St. George’s church facing Hahoma Hashlishit street, a Rumanian nun who preferred anonymity said.

She added that relations with their neighbors in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox neighborhood were usually good. Alongside the Rumanian church are also a small community of Polish Catholic and Armenian Christians. “It is an act of extremists,” the nun said."

"Tens of settlers broke into the Mosque of Prophet Yunus in the town of Halhul in the south of the occupied West Bank in the early hours of Sunday and defiled it," Mariam Saleh told Anadolu Agency.

"The desecration of the mosque happened under official protection from the Israeli army," she said.

"Hebron, Palestine, during a “round-up” of Palestinian children by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).

One Israel Defense Force soldier involved in a massive sweep through the West Bank city of Hebron, told international observers: “We don’t arrest normal people. They are not normal people.” Reporting on that mass arrest of 27 Palestinian children – 18 under the age of 12 – on their way to school, the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz demanded only, “The IDF must stop arresting children.”

......the classic Zionist “equal sides” argument, as though a massive military force occupying a captive population could be described as anything remotely related to “equal”.


That massive military force is provided by us. I want it to stop, and I want my money to stop being used to terrify and abuse CHILDREN.

Ramallah, West Bank (PRWEB) May 12, 2014

"Rising numbers of Palestinian children are being subjected to solitary confinement for interrogation purposes in Israeli detention, according to a new report from Defense for Children International Palestine (DCI-Palestine).

In 21.4 percent of cases recorded by DCI-Palestine in 2013, children detained in the Israeli military detention system reported undergoing solitary confinement as part of the interrogation process. This represents an increase of two percent from 2012.

DCI-Palestine collected 98 sworn affidavits from Palestinian children aged 12 to 17 in 2013.

“The use of isolation against Palestinian children as an interrogation tool is a growing trend,” said Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Program director at DCI-Palestine. “This is a violation of children’s rights and the international community must demand justice and accountability.”

DCI-Palestine’s research overwhelmingly suggests that the use of solitary confinement against Palestinian child detainees in the Israeli military detention system is employed almost solely for interrogation purposes. The apparent purpose is to obtain a confession or to gather intelligence on other individuals.

Globally, children and juvenile offenders are often held in isolation either as a disciplinary measure or to separate them from adult populations. The use of solitary confinement by Israeli authorities does not appear to be related to any disciplinary, protective, or medical rationale or justification.

During a period of just under two years, from January 2012 to December 2013, DCI-Palestine collected 40 affidavits from child detainees that detailed solitary confinement.

Children held in solitary confinement spent an average of 10 days in isolation. The longest period of confinement documented in a single case was 29 days in 2012, and 28 days in 2013.

In 2012, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Richard Falk, condemned Israel’s use of solitary confinement against Palestinian children, saying it “flagrantly violates international human rights standards.”

“This pattern of abuse by Israel is grave. It is inhumane, cruel, degrading, and unlawful, and, most worryingly, it is likely to adversely affect the mental and physical health of underage detainees,” Falk said.

Palestinian child detainees are held in solitary confinement and interrogated by the Israel Security Agency (ISA) at interrogation and detention centers located inside Israel, including Petah Tikva detention center, Kishon detention center, and Shikma prison in Ashkelon.

The transfer of Palestinian child detainees from the Occupied Palestinian territories to prisons inside Israel violates Article 76 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which prohibits the transfer of detainees out of the occupied territory. "


Keep breaking international agreements, spitting in the face of American tax-payers, who fund this bullsh*t.

Restitution from Germany for the much will you owe these children, Israel?

Thanks ever so much for making me complicit with this abuse and horror. Yes I know: drones, etc are horror too.

But this has been ongoing for 60 +years.

It has to be explained to me why Russia, Cuba, Iran are sanctioned, but Israel get a free pass.

Please--give it your best shot.

"Somehow regular people don't want to hear why we are there (the Occupied Palestinian Territories) and what we are doing. They worry for the most part. They prefer to think we are protecting the world and I think it's important to burst that bubble."

Micha Kurz formerly of the 50th Battalion, Nahal Bridge Unit, also in a video recording, said, "For me "Breaking the silence" was a reflection in the face of our daily reality."

"For us to understand, for my mother to know, for my family and all my friends to know in Tel Aviv, the Israeli mainstream to understand- that our reality is based over control of another nation. To get to the point where it makes no sense that people are living their lives in Tel Aviv, and here on Jerusalem's Jaffa street things go on as usual....without thinking of what's happening an hour's drive from their home, even less," he said.

"Breaking the silence puts a mirror in front of our eyes."

Hamas denies they did it, an it's way too convenient to stir up Arab hatred: which Israel's leader possesses in droves.

"The result is that Americans are not getting the full story re Israel/Palestine. Slater says this dramatically in his paper–that the Times has deprived American leadership of reporting on the moral/political crisis that Israel is undergoing, one that Haaretz has covered unstintingly. At Columbia the other night, Jew, Arab and gentile on a panel about the human-rights crisis in Gaza all said that Americans are not getting the full story. Ilan Pappe has marveled in his book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, that the Nakba is all but unmentioned in the U.S.–while Haaretz has sought at times to document it, for instance a former officer saying in 2004 that if he had not helped to destroy 200 villages in southern Israel in ’48, there would be another million Palestinians in Israel. To repeat Scherzer’s admission: "We believe in the Israeli narrative of history…"

Why does the American press behave differently from the Israeli press? I think the answer is guilt. The Jewish cohort of

which I am a part has largely accepted

the duty that Max Frankel felt, of supporting Israel. This duty is rarely interrogated, and yet consciously or not we all know that American public opinion/leadership is critical to Israel’s political invulnerability; and we think that if we take their fingers out of the dike, who knows what will happen. That is a

ton of responsibility. This responsibility is not executed with special care.

Generally, my cohort hasn’t been to Israel, hasn’t seen the West Bank. But they do feel kinship with Israeli Jews, and–above all–have guilt feelings about the Holocaust, or the American Jewish silence about

it during the event, the Jewish passivity; and they are

determined not to be passive during Israel’s neverending existential crises. And thus they misunderstand Israel and fail to serve their readers. "


It's also forcing me to pay for these atrocities, against my will.

All the current "wars" can be traced to PNAC: neo-con Zionist agenda.

Coming from our state dept. Deep cover, decades long.

We never mention this:"When Ukraine resisted Soviet attempts at collectivization in the 1920s and '30s, the Soviet Union under Stalin used labor camps, executions, and starvation (Holodomor) to kill millions of Ukrainians."

Yet--I have to live here, and watch men who made $$ off this Stalin regime (Koch) throw their money around the USA and get told that I'm the America-Hater.

Wake the F up buddy. After Palestine: you're next.

No clean green energy for you: Kochs like dirty oil.

“Tesla was right and we are ready to prove it!” So say the two Russian physicists who have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to rebuild Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower in Fall, 2014. Tesla believed that the tower could transmit power wirelessly but this was never definitively proven in his lifetime.

If he was right, and after extensive study the team are convinced he was, the project could provide an efficient, worldwide energy transmission system that would distribute all the clean energy we can use."

I notice a conversation going on about Israel.

One person called someone a bigot, and another person called someone a Jew hater.

As soon as I read both of those, I thought: "Hmm, I'll bet you the one who called bigot will be banned, while the one who called Jew hater will be free as a bird". And sho-nuff, that seems to be what happened.

I find calling someone a Jew hater extremely offensive and quite a personal attack. No one else does?

And, then this third person is saying such nasty, slanderous things about Palestinians and Muslims, but it's always OK on hp.

Try saying it about Jews---you would be gone.

And this morning I tried to post a picture of Ehud Barak, with the caption "If I was a Palestinian, I'd join a terrorist organization too" because he knows what's going on....and of course, they didn't post it.

GL: The US support for Israel makes Israelis believe that they have a right to do whatever they want. The people of the US need to question why their country supports Israel and if it serves their interest or even that of Israel’s. These questions are being raised slowly. The answers lie in the domestic politics of the US. Even Barrack Obama, whose heart is in the right place, is unable to alter the US domestic policy.

TNS: Can Israel not defend itself without massacring Gazans?

Finally, the truth.

Tue Aug 5, 2014 7:55AM GMT

"Israeli Knesset’s deputy speaker Moshe Feiglin has called for the “annihilation” of the Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip.

Feiglin, who is also a member of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party, wrote about the plans in a post on his Facebook page at the weekend, the British Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The Israeli official also called for “the conquest of the entire Gaza Strip.” He spoke of plans for the destruction of Gaza, which would include expelling residents and shipping them across the world.

Feiglin also wrote about his plans in a letter addressed to Netanyahu, in which he said he wanted the measures to be enforced as soon as possible.

In the letter, Feiglin said he wanted Israeli military forces to find areas on the Sinai border to set up “tent encampments… until relevant emigration destinations are determined.” Furthermore, he wants Gaza’s electricity and water supplies to be disconnected before shelling the besieged area “with maximum fire power.”

The Israeli forces would then “exterminate” resistance centers and Israeli law would be extended to cover the entire Gaza Strip and “the city of Gaza and its suburbs will be rebuilt as true Israeli touristic and commercial cities.”

MIT Professor Noam Chomsky discusses U.S. support for Israel; the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS); and the blockade of Gaza. "In the Occupied Territories, what Israel is doing is much worse than apartheid," Chomsky says. "To call it apartheid is a gift to Israel, at least if by 'apartheid' you mean South African-style apartheid. ... There's a crucial difference. The South African Nationalists needed the black population. That was their workforce. The Israeli relationship to the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories is totally different. They just don't want them. They want them out, or at least in prison."

"last night, along with Lia Tarachansky, who’s your correspondent for The Real News in Israel-Palestine, I followed a march of settlers, led by this group Women in Green, who established new religious nationalist settlements around the West Bank. We followed them up to the Jaffa Gate in the old city of Jerusalem, and there we heard more genocidal rhetoric. At the top of this hill, I interviewed Daniel Luria, who is the head of Ateret Cohanim. It’s a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the United States that raises money, tax-exempt, in order to eject Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem and replace them with Jews. And Luria, in denouncing what he called the snakes to the South, the serpents to the south, referring to the people of the Gaza Strip, said that Israel had to take care of the sons of Amalek.

Whenever you hear the word Amalek, the term Amalek, that is a call for genocide, because Amalek was the incarnation of evil in the Bible, and in Jewish history is considered anyone who wants to wipe out the Jewish people. And the only way to handle Amalek is as he was handled in the Bible: complete destruction. And that’s what Daniel Luria told me in English in his Australian accent, that the Amalekites had to be eradicated."

I recently asked one of his advisers to gauge for me the depth of Mr. Netanyahu’s anxiety about Iran. His answer: “Think Amalek.”

"Rabbis throughout the ages have allegorized the reference to Amalek to connote any sworn enemy of the Jewish people from Hitler to Barack Obama (some prominent American Orthodox Jews wrote in such terms before the last US election). "

"Requests for separate buses for Palestinians in Israel are “unacceptable” and resemble “apartheid,” the country’s Justice Minister said, adding that this kind of discrimination is banned by Israeli law.

“It’s intolerable, the claims that they [the settlers] need their own buses, because one [Palestinian] didn’t get up for a woman or an elderly person, and another wasn’t nice to them. This is apartheid!” Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said.

“That’s something I find unacceptable, and I’ll work against it,” she vowed. “This is discrimination that’s forbidden by Israeli law.”

Livni’s statements come after the country’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon decided that West Bank Arabs working in Israel should have their own segregated public buses when traveling to and from Israel via a single crossing."

"A group of American citizens is suing the US Treasury because they say the agency is allowing billions of dollars of tax-exempt charitable donations to flow to the Israeli army and support the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, DC, on 21 December, alleges that around 150 US nonprofit organizations send about $1 billion a year “to fund the forcible expulsion of all non-Jews” and expand settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories."


It's coming. The maelstrom. You didn't think we would all sit back and take it forever, did you?

What country are you loyal to?

That is the question.

Me, America First, and what we stand for.

Im telling you....there is no connection to reality.

...right wingers talking about gvt taking your guns, searching your house...rotten rotten gvt.

Well, thats what Israel does to Palestinians!

Right wingers talking about abortion....bad bad abortion, horrible women killing babies.

Well, Israel allows abortion, pays for it any woman aged 19-30 (Some such


And you support Israel!

What exactly, DO you stand for?

From what i see----you have no real values, no real principles....just ideological good guys and bad guys, based on your religion.

And that has NO place in running a gvt!

Wake up. Do you think people dont see through you?

Guess whos stealing the land in Gaza to give to settlers? According to Haaretz, its the right wing. Forgeries, brought about with suitcases full of money. Haaretz says this. Will you listen? Or even care? Its highly doubtful. Doesnt stop it from going on. Doesnt stop our culpability. Congrats.

Trump is in the bag for Israel, like all the rest of them. What have you got to say about that?

Let me guess, nothing. Who gave him this speech, Bibi or Shelly?

Frightening. He is 100% fascist neocon.

Deriding the president of usa and getting cheers!

This is sedition.

This is disgusting.

Not one word about the terrorism of the idf and settlers.

yes, its true. trump is taking away the 221 million obama gave to the palestinians...could have been so much more, given that we are involved in that genocide and apartheid state.

and yes, they will keep stealing land, displacing children, and moving forward with their illegal settlements. and yes, they will move our embassy to jerusalem, effectively erasing a whole people from their sacred place.

trump and co are setting down spikes.

in womens rights, immigrant rights, muslim rights and poor peoples very existance.

do not call it usa usa usa

call it a global clique. putin/trump/netanyahu...and teresa may wants in, too.

the old world order...back to the middle ages.

no two state solution eh?

is anyone surprised?

not much of palestine left for palestinians anyway.

trump will give his pal bibi the final solution he's been looking for.

and all of us will have to support it by proxy of this fiend being in the oval office.

if this final end to the palestinians comes, after that racist muslim ban... das it!

i am somehow renouncing my citizenship until we get back to being america....if its even possible.

i will render onto ceasar....but will not bear allegiance!
