German Jews for Palestinian rights receive a peace prize– and are dismissed as ‘the wrong kind of Jews’

Last week, the German organization Jewish Voice for a Just peace in the Middle East received a peace prize from the city of Göttingen.

As the organization supports the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, the announcement of its nomination became a battleground, wherein prominent Jewish leaders tarnished its members as anti-Semites, suggesting that they were the ‘wrong kind of Jews’. The mayor and the president of the Göttingen university withdrew their support and cancelled the booking of halls for receptions. Nonetheless the jury stuck to its decision, and crowdfunded a prize of 28,000 Euros, which the organization will donate to human rights organizations in Palestine as well as to the liberal Israeli +972 Magazine.

At the ‘worst checkpoint in the West Bank,’ Palestinians begin lining up at 3 a.m.

Palestinian workers say conditions at the notorious checkpoint in occupied West Bank have worsened over the last months — Frantic clamouring disrupts the usual noises at Israel’s Checkpoint 300 in Bethlehem, where thousands of Palestinian workers queue for hours, starting at 3 am, to make it on time for their jobs in Israel. Workers chat, bicker, joke, frustratingly shout, bang on the steel bars, and rattle the turnstiles that Israeli border police officials intermittently lock amid the heavy traffic. “He has fainted. Everyone move! Call an ambulance!” The crowd becomes louder as a young man is carried outside the checkpoint. Numerous workers surround the man’s limp body stretched out on the ground, and others attempt to resuscitate him – to no avail … An ambulance arrives, and the young man is lifted onto a gurney and rushed to the hospital. The workers continue on through the single cement lane, sipping on small paper cups of coffee to push past their exhaustion.

Israel approves plan to reoccupy Gaza

The Israeli occupation army proposed a plan to reoccupy the besieged Gaza Strip during any future offensive, Al-Khaleej Online reported yesterday.

The plan was approved 14 years after Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the costal enclave.

The Wallah news website, which is close to the Israeli intelligence, said the plan were prepared when Gadi Eisenkot was the chief of staff while his predecessor Aviv Kofach approved it.

The news website reported senior Israeli military officials saying: “Hamas might flareup the region and go for a major confrontation if the truce understandings failed.”

The Gaza Strip has suffered under a more than 12-year siege at the hands of Israel, with support from Egypt and the international community. Goods, food, aid, construction materials and other essentials have not been allowed into the Strip and people have been left unable to leave even to access medical care.

US-Jewish settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque

Under heavy security protection of occupation forces, scores of Jewish settlers of American origin yesterday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards, Arab48 reported.

The news site reported that 67 Jewish settlers and foreign tourists stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site.

According to the website, the settlers performed religious rituals and provoked Muslim and Palestinian worshippers.

Meanwhile, occupation forces deployed all around the mosque from the early hours of the morning and tightened restrictions imposed on the entry of Palestinians.

Israeli settlers carry out raids in to Al-Aqsa on an almost daily basis. They are accompanied by heavily armed Israeli military police, which impose severe restrictions on Palestinian and Muslim worshippers, with many banned from entering the holy site for months at a time as a result of their rejection of Israeli settler desecration of the area.

Israel military censor banned, partially redacted more than 3,000 news items in 2018

Israel’s military censor “prohibited the publication of 363 news articles in 2018” in addition to “partially or fully redacting a total of 2,712 news items submitted to it for prior review”, reported +972 Magazine, a significant spike in “censor intervention”.

According to the news site, “the censor barred more news stories from publication in 2018 than in almost any other year this decade”. With respect to articles published after partial redaction, only 2014 saw “similarly substantial censorship of the press”.

+972 Magazine reported that “the spike in censorship compared to 2017 is significant: in the last year, the IDF Censor prevented the publication of 92 more articles than it did in the year prior, while it partially or fully redacted an additional 625 stories.”

Overall, “over the past eight years, the censor has prohibited a total of 2,661 news stories from seeing the light of day,” the article added.

Israel MK: We must cut off any hope for establishment of Palestinian state

An Israeli parliamentarian in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling coalition has urged authorities to end any hope of establishing a Palestinian state, reported Arutz Sheva.

Speaking yesterday, MK Motti Yogev, of the Jewish Home party, declared that “we must cut off any political hope for the establishment of a Palestinian state of murderers that has never existed and will never exist”.

Yogev added that “the direction should be to apply sovereignty everywhere in the land of Israel and to bring hundreds of thousands of Jews to the Galilee, the Negev and to Judea and Samaria [the occupied West Bank], continue to strengthen our grip and continue to fight terrorism.”

Israel cuts water supply to 2,600 Palestinians in Jordan Valley

Israeli forces and the Israeli Civil Administration cut the water supply to 2,600 of Palestinians living in communities in Bardala village in the Jordan Valley, northern occupied West Bank, yesterday.

Mutaz Bisharat, an official who monitors settlement activity in Tubas/Jordan Valley, told Ma’an that Israeli forces cut off water supply for 60 per cent of residents of the Bardala village; amounting to 2,600 people.

Israeli forces also cut off water supplies for 1,800-2,000 dunams (445-494 acres) of Palestinian agricultural lands that must be continuously irrigated.

Bisharat added that Israel claims that water sources in the area are illegal, adding that this cannot be true because the water comes from wells in the village and inside Palestinian lands.

Israel demolishes Palestinians’ well in southern Hebron

Israeli occupation forces demolished a water well in the Umm Al-Nir village in southern Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, today.

Locals said that an Israeli bulldozer, escorted by large numbers of Israeli soldiers, demolished a water well in the village.

Umm Al-Nir is located near Susiya village in the South Hebron Hills.

The South Hebron Hills, known locally as Masafer Yatta, lie almost entirely in Area C, the 62 per cent of the West Bank under full Israeli civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Masafer Yatta residents were expelled at the time of the establishment of a firing zone in the 1970s and were eventually allowed back following a long court battle, but are under the constant threat of being expelled or seeing their homes demolished.

Why the media fails to cover Palestine with accuracy and empathy

Often dubbed an open-air prison on account of Israel's and Egypt's ongoing air, land and sea blockade of the coastal enclave, Gaza is, according to Amnesty International and several other rights groups, on the brink of a humanitarian disaster.

In February, Antonio Guterres, the United Nations secretary-general, highlighted the crisis, saying that the near two million Palestinians of the besieged strip "remain mired in increasing poverty and unemployment, with limited access to adequate health, education, water and electricity".

But the mainstream media does not always succeed in telling Palestine's contemporary story with accuracy and empathy.

On Thursday, in the Scottish city of Glasgow, experts discussed the media's role in covering one of the most pressing and divisive issues in international politics.

AIPAC paid $60,000 to group that peddles anti-Muslim conspiracy theories

An AIPAC affiliate paid $60,000 during its campaign to thwart the Iran nuclear deal to a group that engages in anti-Muslim extremism.

Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, which was launched in the summer of 2015 to rally opposition to the Iran deal, paid the money to the Center for Security Policy, according to a report Wednesday by LobeLog, a Middle East policy news and analysis site.

Verizon. Pfizer. Bank of America. U.S. Corporations Are Funding Israeli Settlements.

The corporate foundations of Verizon, Pfizer, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, American Express and JPMorgan Chase have collectively given over $25,000 to U.S. nonprofits that send money to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, according to tax records from 2001 to 2016 reviewed by In These Times.

A large network of U.S. nonprofits raises millions of dollars annually to send to Israeli settlements, which are built on Palestinian land and are considered illegal under international law. Some Israeli settlers violently harass Palestinians and burn down their crops. Israeli settlers have also killed Palestinians.

Tax records reviewed by In These Times show that Israeli settlements have a surprising source of funds: the foundations of some of the most well-known U.S. corporations.

Humanise the victims, not the terrorist

The media-hungry terrorist responsible for the Christchurch shootings does not deserve our attention. His victims do.
***
Then I stopped. I realised, after sifting through the bleak headlines and darker social media posts, that his broader objective was reeling us in. Seducing us into examining his very word, affixing our eyes to his image and video of the massacre, and most lastingly, memorising his name.

This was the bigger mission that followed the massacre. He wanted us spellbound. Lured into humanising every dimension of his being, and every vile sliver of his act, in place of the victims. Their lives, their stories, and most notably, their names.

Hot Off the Press: Israel’s Three Largest Banks Pay Hundreds Of Millions In Fines For Helping US Citizens Evade Taxes

Following a few mild words of dissent by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, the US House of Representatives was almost united in affirming the special relationship between Israel and the US. See, for ex. So how is “our most reliable and most important ally” treating us? If ‘our' includes the US treasury, the answer is that Israel’s banks have been accused of and have admitted to actively colluding with wealthy US taxpayers to avoid US taxes.

On March 12, Israel’s third largest bank, Mizrahi Tefahot, agreed to pay $195 million to the United States to settle charges that the bank knowingly aided tax evasion by US citizens from 2002 until 2012.

Israel’s largest bank, Leumi paid a $400 million dollar fine for similar “criminal activity” that spanned the period from at least 2000 to 2011. Hapoalim, Israel’s second largest bank is presently negotiating a settlement with the US Justice Department. The total settlement from all three banks will amount to over $1 billion.

Conservative? Hardly. New Zealand mass shooter is a far-Left “eco-fascist” who praised communist China

(Natural News) As usual, the lying mainstream media is busy plastering up fake headlines all over the place about the latest mass shooting incident that took place in New Zealand, describing the alleged shooter as a “Trump-supporting white supremacist” who hates Muslims for being brown. But the guy’s own 1,500-page manifesto, which Big Tech is actively trying to scrub from the web, by the way, tells a much different story.

Far from being a rally-attending apologist for President Donald Trump like the fake media is now claiming, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, the man whom Australian media outlets have named as the shooter, is a self-described “eco-fascist by nature” – meaning he’s a Leftist that’s more aligned with Democrats than Republicans.

The Trump Regime Considers the West Bank, Gaza, and Syria’s Golan Israeli Territory

The West Bank and Gaza are illegally occupied Palestinian territories. There’s nothing “disputed” about them.

Expanding Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land flagrantly violate Fourth Geneva’s Article 49, stating:

“Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of their motive.”

“The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”

The International Committee of the Red Cross affirmed Fourth Geneva, saying “international humanitarian law prohibits the establishment of settlements, as these are a form of population transfer into occupied territory.”

Israel journalist facing trial for calling soldiers who beat Palestinians ‘animals’

An Israeli journalist who called Israeli army soldiers “animals” for beating a Palestinian father and son in custody is to face trial.

Oshrat Kotler, a journalist with Israel’s Channel 13, is to face trial on charges of incitement, incrimination of suspects, failure to grant a right of reply and more after she called several soldiers accused of beating two Palestinians in custody “human animals”, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Speaking on the channel’s news programme in February, Kotler said:

When you send your children to the [Israeli] army, they are kids. You send them to the [occupied Palestinian] territories, and they come back as human animals. This is the result of the occupation.

‘I don’t care about your ID’: US student assaulted by Israel soldiers at Al-Aqsa

“They were not letting anyone near the Dome of the Rock, they had surrounded it from all its doors,” the 21 year-old student says. “And there was an old lady being wheeled out as she was leaving the prayer area and she fell out of her wheelchair and she was unable to get back in. And I saw that a couple of women were trying to help her, but they were being shoved so I tried to go in as well.”

However as Nour moved towards the elderly woman, she found herself shoved to the floor by an Israeli soldier, who cuffed one of her wrists and proceeded to sit on her to stop her from moving.

“That’s when like ten to 15 soldiers were holding me down with their feet, trying to get my other wrist in handcuffs. And I had pulled out my passport and I told her [the soldier] that I was an American citizen and she said ‘I don’t care about your ID’ and threw my passport to the side.”

Israel suppressing only pharmaceutical factory in Gaza

The only pharmaceutical factory in the Gaza Strip is struggling to survive Israeli restrictions and the economic crises brought about by the 12-year siege imposed on the coastal enclave.

The factory has been subjected to Israeli military attacks since 2003, long before the siege was imposed on the Strip in 2007, which caused an economic crisis, halted the factory’s development and caused production to drop by 80 per cent.

General manager of Middle East Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics Laboratories – or Megapharm, to which the factory is affiliated – Marwan Al-Astal, explained that: “Israeli attacks on the factory started in 2003 when the occupation army stormed its headquarters in the town of Beit Hanoun and stayed there for three months. During this period, lots of equipment, machines and raw materials were destroyed.”

Israel pounds Gaza after “mistaken” missile launch

Hamas officials were meeting with Egyptian mediators at the time the two rockets were launched. The Egyptian delegation, which has been conducting indirect negotiations between Hamas and Israel for several months, was told to leave by Israel later that night before the bombardment of the Strip.

On Friday, the Israeli military told media that the rockets were likely launched by mistake during maintenance work.

Meanwhile the Great March of Return organizing committee announced that it would postpone demonstrations along Gaza’s eastern boundaries that day, the first cancelation of the weekly protests since their launch on 30 March last year.

The committee obliquely referenced the overnight escalation and called on Palestinians to prepare for a massive mobilization on the one-year anniversary of the protests.

Israeli arms industry’s “great leap” in Central America

Halfway through Donald Trump’s presidency, Israel’s decades-long role in Central America is scaling new heights of military and political influence.

Israel has wasted no time securing valuable arms deals in this part of the world, deals that now account for nearly 20 percent of its arms exports. This scale of activity hasn’t occurred since the Ronald Reagan administration in the 1980s, when far-right rulers in Central America circled the wagons.

Tacit US approval for the purchase of such weapons has ensured Honduran and Guatemalan support at the United Nations for Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The changeover from Barack Obama’s two terms as president to Trump has heralded a resurgence of policy trends among the US, Israel and US-dominated Central American countries reminiscent of the transitional Carter-Reagan years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And again, if Israel manufactures enough weapons to have some to sell, why do American taxpayers have to send Israel more weapons?

The Truth Is Out About Israel’s Lethal Actions In Gaza. Will The World Listen?

A UN investigation into the 2018 Gaza protests has concluded that Israeli officers and their leaders may have committed war crimes or crimes against humanity. The human rights council’s commission of inquiry found that soldiers intentionally used live ammunition against civilians, who included children, women, journalists, health workers and people with disabilities.

The figures are telling: more than 6,000 people injured by Israeli bullets, with 183 killed. Renowned human rights organisations such as Human Rights Watch, B’Tselem and Al-Haq had already denounced this policy, with B’Tselem calling on Israeli soldiers not to follow orders to shoot civilians. The people of Palestine still wonder whether such findings will be used by the international community to implement policy aimed at ending the Israeli occupation, or whether it will be business as usual.

Johnstone: "BREAKING - Everyone Who Opposes War Is A Russian Anti-Semite"

In order to appease the internet censors, today’s Caitlin Johnstone article has been replaced with a breaking report from the National News Conglomerate. NNC: Obey.

Washington, D.C. (NNC)? - ?Following the publication of the results of a groundbreaking new study this week, experts are now reporting that every single person who questions western military interventionism is both an antisemitic bigot and a Russian national.

Research analyst Les Overton is a senior fellow at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Democracy (ASPCD), a Washington, D.C.-based think tank whose motives we can only assume are perfectly truthful and unbiased. He told NNC that the ASPCD’s research clearly shows that the rate of correlation between an individual opposing western foreign policy, harboring a virulent hatred of Jewish people, and being a citizen of the Russian Federation is “at least a hundred percent, if not more.”

US report intends to whitewash Israel's human rights violations: PLO official

A high-ranking member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) says a US decision to drop Israeli-occupied designation from the Golan Heights and Palestinian territories in its latest annual human rights report is meant to whitewash the Israeli occupation and human rights violations against the Palestinian nation.

“After the release of the so-called human rights report by the US State Department, it is now abundantly clear that [US President Donald] Trump’s administration is gearing all branches of the government to whitewash the Israeli occupation and its pervasive violations of human rights,” Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Executive Committee of the PLO, said in a statement released on Thursday.

She added, “The report also de-contextualizes the reality by omitting the inescapable fact of Israeli occupation of Palestine, reflecting this administration’s infatuation with an alternative yet fallacious version of reality and legality.”

Israeli group honors Nikki Haley with coin

An Israeli organization has minted a coin emblazoned with the face of Nikki Haley, President Donald Trump’s former ambassador to the United Nations, to commemorate her defense of Israel in the world body.

The Sanhedrin, a Jewish organization that dreams of restoring the Jewish Temple, where ancient temples once stood in Jerusalem’s Old City, is one of three religious groups behind the Haley coin.

“She supported Israel and she told the truth ... that all the United Nations, all its agenda, is to destroy Israel,” Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the group, said Wednesday. “She acted in a manner that represented biblical tenets,” he added.

Weiss said that Haley’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Human Rights Council and her criticism of what Israel and the U.S. say is an anti-Israel bias at the U.N. earned her the recognition.

Iran Holds Massive Drone Drills Called "Way To Jerusalem" In Persian Gulf

Iran unveiled that it launched a massive drone exercise to showcase its military and technological prowess on Thursday. Given that it involves some 50 Iranian-made drones and is officially named "Way to Jerusalem" exercises (or "Towards al-Quds 1"), it has been met with alarm in Israel especially considering many were armed drones operating along key choke points in the Persian Gulf.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) described the military drills as Iran's largest exercise of its kind to date, and occurred mostly near the strategic Strait of Hormuz. State-run Fars and Tasnim news agencies described the operation as including, “for the first time, 50 Iranian drones on the RQ-170 [US Sentinel] model operated with a number of assault and combat drones."

US Agents Offer Cash to Engineer to Wreck Tehran Power Grid

The US spying services have sought to sabotage and take down the power grid of the Iranian capital through an Iranian-American engineer, a journalist disclosed on Thursday, adding that the anti-Tehran plot is now being operational in Venezuela.

Middle East commentator and analyst Sharmine Narwani, a former senior associate at Oxford University, sent letters to news outlets revealing that an Iranian-American engineer was offered money by US officials to conduct a sabotage mission targeting the power grid of Tehran.

Has she crossed the line? Minnesota Democrat leaders consider primary challenge against Rep Ilhan Omar after her recent tweets and statements are blasted as 'anti-Semitic'

Rep Ilhan Omar is only two months into her first term in Congress, but some Minnesota Democrats are already looking to replacing her in 2020.

The freshman congresswoman has already made a splash with her controversial comments about Israel, leading the House to pass an anti-hate resolution.

Leaders among the Minnesota Democrats have since revealed there have been discussions about finding someone who could challenge Omar in the 2020 primary, when she will be up for re-election.

'There's definitely some buzz going around about it,' state Sen Ron Latz, who represents part of Omar's district, told The Hill.

Video: Palestinian human rights observers in Hebron under attack following TIPH expulsion

Following Israel’s expulsion of the TIPH observer group from Hebron last month, a group of Palestinian activists from the city formed their own team of observers to fill in the gaps. Issa Amro and his team of observers head out every morning to the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in Hebron’s Old City and stand watch as children make their way to school. The kids must pass through several checkpoints monitored by armed soldiers, and streets that are patrolled by notoriously violent settlers. In the month since they began their work, Amro’s team have been given more than 10 military orders to stop work, and have been attacked by settlers several times. Amro told Mondoweiss that since TIPH was expelled, the situation in Hebron has gotten a lot worse.

Understanding Israel’s deception regarding citizenship vs. Jewish nationality

People are often confused by the difference between citizenship and nationality when it comes to Israel. This issue most recently came up in the spat between Israeli celebrity Rotem Sela who asked, “when will anyone in this government tell the public that this is a state of all its citizens,” to which Prime Minister Netanyahu replied it wasn’t, and said that it was a nation state of Jews alone.

This was then further confused when Netanyahu also claimed that all Israeli citizens have equal rights. What’s going on here? Is Israel a state of all of its citizens, and do citizens have equal rights?

In short, I would say that Netanyahu was right about the state not being a state of all its citizens, and wrong about all citizens having equal rights.

Memo to Israeli soldiers: Irish prosecutor charges British soldier for killing unarmed protesters 47 years ago

Gaza calls off Great March of Return

Palestinians have called off their weekly peaceful protests along the Gaza-Israel fence, the Higher National Commission for the March of Return and Breaking the Siege announced today.

“The national authority for the March of Return has called for the postponement of the marches on an exceptional basis today,” the agency said in a brief statement.

The commission said this was an effort to maintain calm in the Strip and prevent escalations after Israeli occupation forces bombed 100 sites in the besieged enclave overnight injuring four Palestinians.

Erekat: Trump radically changed US policy towards Palestine-Israel conflict

Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee Saeb Erekat said the administration of US President Donald Trump has radically changed American policy towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Erekat said it stopped using the term “occupied” in reference to the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Syrian Golan Heights adding that it “is not just a change in terminology, but a change in policy”.

The recent change adds to the US’ unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as the “undivided” capital of Israel and moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city, closing the US consulate in Jerusalem and the PLO office in Washington, legitimising illegal Israeli settlements and dropping the two-state solution, as well as cutting aid to the Palestinians and the UN agency setup to support them, he continued.

In Israel normalising violence takes precedence over targeted assassinations

One outcome is certain when it comes to the forthcoming Israeli elections – Gaza will remain a top target for the new government. Amid the sparring between contenders for the elections, former IDF chief Benny Gantz declared he would implement Israel’s policy of targeted assassinations against Hamas leaders if elected, and if necessary.

His comments sought to counter Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s remarks over “Operation Protective Edge” in 2014, in which the latter used derogatory language to criticise Gantz’s decisions which, according to Bennett, endangered the lives of Israeli soldiers. Bennett alleged that Gantz would be Hamas’ preferable leadership option. This claim is also being supported by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has stated that Gantz’s party would make “significant concessions to the Palestinians.”

Gaza protests cancelled for first time after Israeli air strikes

Weekly protests along the Gaza-Israel border were called off on Friday after Israeli jets pounded the enclave overnight, hours after rockets were launched at Tel Aviv.

"In keeping with the public interest, the commission has decided to exceptionally postpone its activities scheduled for this day," the body which organises the protests said in a statement.

Protests will resume in the coming weeks, with particular preparation for the one-year anniversary of their beginning on 30 March, it said.

An official from the organising committee, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the protests were delayed "to protect our people due to the escalation and the Israeli aggression".

Why it’s not anti-semitic for Ilhan Omar to raise the question of dual loyalty

I have always had a problem with the concept of dual loyalty. I agree with what Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto. The interests of the working class and the oppressed cross borders. Loyalty is not to the ruling classes of "their" own countries.

Palestinians struggling against the occupation have more in common with Black Lives Matter than with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas or his cronies. As Muhammad Ali once put it: "No Vietcong ever called me a nigger."

In the words of Samuel Johnson, an English writer and critic of the 18th century, patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. Appeals to patriotism never apply to the rich and powerful.

Palestinian Resistance Groups in Gaza All Deny Firing Shells Toward Israel

After two nights of wide-scale bombardment of the Gaza Strip by Israeli forces in which dozens of bombs were dropped on the crowded coastal enclave, someone in Gaza apparently attempted to retaliate Thursday night by firing several shells toward Israel.

But the Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza, usually quick to claim credit for actions they take, all denied involvement in this attack.

Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees all issued separate statements officially denying any involvement in relation to the firing of the missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This supports the theory that those two missiles fired towards Tel Aviv were an Israeli false-flag to justify more bombing.

PCHR Weekly Report On Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (07 – 13 March 2019)

In the Gaza Strip, the Israeli forces continued to use lethal force against the participants in the peaceful protests organized along the Gaza Strip borders, which witnessed the peaceful protests for the 50th week along the eastern and northern border area of the Gaza Strip. They also continued to use force as well during the incursions into the West Bank.

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian civilian and 3 other civilians, including a child, succumbed to their wounds. Moreover, 150 civilians, including 43 children, 4 women, 3 journalists, and 3 paramedics, were wounded while participating in the Return March. The injury of four of them was reported serious. Furthermore, four Palestinian fishermen were wounded. In the West Bank, the Israeli forces killed 3 Palestinian civilians; one of them was shot dead by the Israeli police. Moreover, five civilians were wounded in different shooting incidents in the West Bank.

150 Settlers Storm Al-Aqsa Mosque

Dozens of extremist settlers, on Thursday morning, stormed Al Aqsa Mosque from the Moroccan Gate, under heavy police escort, following calls from extremist settler organizations to enter it.

Sources in the mosque confirmed that 150 settlers stormed the compound and organized tours in its yards. Meanwhile, Israeli forces stationed themselves at the gates and imposed strict measures on the entry of worshipers to the mosque. Forces also detained some personal identities at the gates, outside, according to the PNN.

Extremist organizations, earlier, called on settlers to invade the mosque under the slogan, “Together we prevent the Muslims from taking control of the Bab Al-Rahma”, which was recently chained by Israeli authorities and reopened by Palestinians, in midst of heavy arrests and violent confrontations.

Ashrawi: US Human Rights Report Meant to Whitewash Israeli Occupation

The US Human Right Report is intended to whitewash the Israeli occupation and excuse human rights violations against the Palestinian people, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said today.

“After the release of the so-called Human Rights Report, by the US State Department, it is now abundantly clear that the Trump administration is gearing all branches of the government to whitewash the Israeli occupation and its pervasive violations of human rights,” said Ashrawi in a statement. “The ‘report’ also decontextualizes the reality by omitting the inescapable fact of Israeli occupation of Palestine, reflecting this administration’s infatuation with an alternative yet fallacious version of reality and legality.”

Miko Peled: The Zionists’ Fight Extends Beyond Palestine

The Zionists’ suppression of freedoms extends beyond Palestine, particularly when it comes to freedom of speech about Israel. Zionist agents, planted in centers of power around the world, are busy silencing those who would criticize Israel. Using an array of highly effective methods, they have been successful at getting laws passed by legislators, getting major political figures falsely accused of making anti-Semitic statements, and establishing a new, Zionist-manufactured definition of what it means to be anti-Semitic.

Earlier this year the United States Senate passed Resolution S-1 that gives the federal government the right to penalize anyone calling to boycott Israel. Then — being a black, Muslim woman who dared to challenge the patriarchy, white supremacy, and Zionism and thus alienate the Washington establishment — Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was targeted and accused of anti-Semitism.

BEX CONFIRMED - Syria Notifies Israel It Will Attack If IDF Doesn't Leave Golan Heights

In a surprising and provocative ultimatum, Syria has notified Israel through United Nations diplomatic channels that it is prepared to go to war if Israel does not leave the Golan Heights.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad reportedly sent the message through the head of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), Christine Lund, this past week, according to a World Israel News report and later picked up other major Israeli sources, including The Jerusalem Post. “Syria will attack Israel if it does not leave the Golan Heights,” Mikdad told the UN representative.

Florida advances bill to shield Israel from criticism

A resolution recently introduced in the Missouri state legislature would affirm that boycotts are protected political expression.

The measure, sponsored by Black progressive lawmaker Brandon Ellington, says that “criticism of a nation by individuals, including as a nonviolent citizens’ boycott, does not constitute bigotry against the citizens of that nation.”

It upholds the constitutional right to boycott “any entity when [people] have conscientious concerns with the entity’s policies or actions,” adding that the state should not “punish individuals” for supporting boycotts by denying them contracts.

According to the resolution, boycotts are “an expression of encouraging the government of the nation to modify its policies and practices to uphold the inalienable human rights of all people within its borders.”

'IDF will shoot African infiltrators,' Israeli official tells shocked activists

A United Nations plan to resolve the issue of African migrants in Israel has been secretly revived by the government, Ynet has learned. The renewal of the plan was leaked by activists from South Tel Aviv who are furious at the prospect of around half of the almost 40,000 migrants being allowed to remain in the country. Even more shocking, the activists say, is a call by the head of Israel's Immigration Authority for the IDF to open fire on any Africans who subsequently sail to Israel seeking asylum.

49 killed in 'terrorist' attack on mosques in New Zealand

At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country's worst ever mass shooting, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism.

A gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a "manifesto" in which he denounced immigrants, calling them "invaders".

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Ardern said, adding that four people taken into custody held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.

‘It's time to defeat Hamas’: Israeli minister speaks to RT after Gaza rocket fire (VIDEO)

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett has blamed Hamas for firing two rockets into Israel, which triggered alarms near Tel Aviv. He told RT that it was time for Israel to retaliate against the “radical Islamic terror state.”

While both the Hamas military wing and the hardline militants from Islamic Jihad denied responsibility for the latest rocket fire that hit Israeli territory on Thursday, Bennett has called to force the militants out of the Gaza Strip.

Two Gaza Rockets Fired at Tel Aviv, One Intercepted

The Israeli army said at least two rockets were fired at Israel on Thursday night, causing rocket alerts to blare throughout central Israel.

According to the Israeli military, the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted one of the rockets, while the other is likely to have landed in an open area.

Israelis reported hearing sounds of blasts in the area, with some saying that they saw the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepting rockets.

The last time rocket alerts were activated in Tel Aviv was two years ago, in what turned out to be a false alarm.

A Palestinian source in Gaza told Haaretz that the rockets were fired from the northern part of the enclave, but that it was unclear which group initiated the fire.

Selling Jerusalem: Middlemen sell Jerusalemite homes to settlers

In the ongoing struggle to reclaim their homeland, the Palestinian Authority has always seen occupied East Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state, but the situation on the ground is rapidly changing as more and more Palestinian homes are taken by Israeli entities.

While this has been happening for decades, according to Palestinians in East Jerusalem, there are new agents involved: Palestinian middlemen who act as fronts in the purchase - allegedly backed by settler organisations and, in some cases, individuals in Arab countries.

Getting permission to build a home in Jerusalem is nearly impossible. There is little land allocated for construction and Israeli authorities usually deny Palestinian applications for building permits. Palestinians are often forced to build their homes "illegally", without permits.

Defying attacks on free speech, Palestine Advocacy Project revives campaign honoring Gaza heroes

Palestine Advocacy Project is relaunching a billboard ad campaign honoring the heroism and self-sacrifice of Palestinian medics who put their lives on the line to rescue and treat injured protesters in Gaza’s ongoing Great March of Return demonstrations. The billboard features beloved Palestinian martyr Razan al-Najjar, 21, a young nurse/paramedic who sacrificed her life caring for wounded demonstrators. Razan was targeted and killed by an Israeli sniper on June 1, 2018, wearing her white nurse’s coat with hands raised to show that she was unarmed. Thus far, almost 120 medics have been shot by Israeli snipers while attempting to rescue and provide aid to the thousands of demonstrators severely injured, maimed or killed by Israel while protesting for their rights. Palestine Advocacy Project’s current billboard displays Razan’s photograph with the text, “Honoring the First Responders of Gaza” and “Saving Lives Under Israeli Fire”.

The implications of normalisation with Israel

Israel has imposed itself through successive wars and military victories since the 1948 war. Israel has also exploited American support which is committed to making it militarily superior to the armies of the Arab states. Israel is the only country possessing nuclear weapons in the Middle East. However, more importantly, on the other hand, Israel’s military victories did not offer it recognition and legitimacy, nor did it solve the problems of water, economy and trade. Israel needs markets and openness to the Arab region. What Israel wants from the Arabs is clear, acceptance of it, acceptance of the results of its victories, acceptance of its occupation of Jerusalem and Palestine, and acceptance of it as one of the strongest states in the Middle East.

The Truth Is Out About Israel’s Lethal Actions In Gaza. Will The World Listen?

A UN investigation into the 2018 Gaza protests has concluded that Israeli officers and their leaders may have committed war crimes or crimes against humanity. The human rights council’s commission of inquiry found that soldiers intentionally used live ammunition against civilians, who included children, women, journalists, health workers and people with disabilities.

The figures are telling: more than 6,000 people injured by Israeli bullets, with 183 killed. Renowned human rights organisations such as Human Rights Watch, B’Tselem and Al-Haq had already denounced this policy, with B’Tselem calling on Israeli soldiers not to follow orders to shoot civilians. The people of Palestine still wonder whether such findings will be used by the international community to implement policy aimed at ending the Israeli occupation, or whether it will be business as usual.

Syria’s descent into the living hell of civil war has had mixed ramifications for Israel.

With Egypt and Jordan having long ratified peace and the demise of the "eastern front" following the second Gulf War, Israel no longer faces any neighboring state with the capability and desire to wage war against it, a dramatic improvement in its strategic position.

“We did it to mislead the other side,” Ya’alon told the Army Radio. “There is an exaggeration in the way it [the operation] was presented, and I hope that does not hurt us,” he added.

Regarding previous remarks he delivered in 2016 that there was “no single tunnel” in the north, Ya’alon said: “My comments two years ago that there are no tunnels in the north was a lie in order to preserve the security of the state.”
