7-year-old chased by notorious Israeli settler in Hebron

A Palestinian father living in Hebron’s Old City told Ma’an that his 7-year-old daughter was injured while being chased by notorious Israeli extremist Baruch Marzel on Monday.

Raed Abu Irmeileh said that he had to take his daughter, Dana, to the Hebron Governmental Hospital “after she had fallen to the ground while being chased by Baruch Marzel near the Ibrahimi mosque.”

Irmeileh told Ma’an that Israeli forces present in the area did not stop Marzel from chasing his children, and assaulted his 10-year-old son Hutasem as well as two brothers Nabil, 14, and Farhat Nader al-Rajabi, 10.

Hillary Clinton Touts Overthrow of Gadhafi, but Doesn’t Mention That Clinton Foundation Donors Did Big Business in Tyrant’s Libya

On Saturday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton again justified the 2011 U.S. policy of regime change in Libya, citing, at least in part, the fact that dictator Moammar Gadhafi had killed Americans.

“We have to continue to do what is necessary when someone like Gadhafi, a despot with American blood on his hands, is overturned,” Clinton said during the weekend’s Democratic presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. “But I’ll tell you what would have happened if we had not joined with our European partners and our Arab partners to assist the people in Libya, you would be looking at Syria.”

But early in the administration, Clinton had championed an allegiance with the Libyan regime under Gadhafi, during a time when some of the major U.S. corporations doing business in Libya were also donating heavy sums to the Clinton Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not for a moment imagine that this "pay to play" mentality will suddenly leave her consciousness, if she is able to win (or steal) the election; it will simply continue, unabated. For her and Bill Clinton, inhabiting the White House is simply another way to make millions of dollars through her foundation, and the public be damned.

And this is why we have to bring her past behaviour to the unblinking gaze of documented fact, because, if in fact, past is prologue to the future, we can expect massive international interventionism from a second Clinton presidency.

And has anyone out there had the "male attributes" to ask her if the current post-Ghadaffi situation in Libya, which has been rife with civil war since 2011; whose leadership has been badly factionalised and has just this month created a basis for a national unity government, was the outcome she desired when she green-lit Ghadaffi's assassination?!?

And what about the reality that Libya has become a
second home to ISIS?!?

Because if all I have stated here were not the outcomes Clinton desired as Secretary of State, and were simply "unintended consequences" of her policies here, please consider Libya a thoroughly terrifying, but very real, "prequel" to what a Clinton presidency will look like.

UN Resolution on Palestinian Sovereignty over its Natural Resources, Opposed by Israel, US and Canada

snip: The UN General Assembly reiterated the illegality of Israeli settlement enterprise and its monopoly over Palestinian resources citing the “detrimental impact of the Israeli settlements on Palestinian and other Arab natural resources, especially as a result of the confiscation of land and the forced diversion of water resources.” Water resources in the occupied Palestinian territory almost entirely under Israeli control under the Oslo Accords, and around 85 percent of water is allocated to Israelis, according to the Palestinian Water Authority.

Zionism is racism: Notes from Tel-Rumeida, Hebron, El-Khalil

The Zionist state never intended to be democratic or tolerant. From its very inception it created racist laws and used terrorism to achieve its goals, giving its terrorist forces the benign name of “Israeli Defense Forces.” Its goal was and remains genocide of the Palestinian people and a complete ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and Israel has been dedicatedly practicing that for seven decades.

The big lie: Anti-Semitism at Concordia

... the Montreal Gazette recently published a front page article claiming Jewish students at Concordia University were "feeling like the target of a hate campaign." The reason cited, as far as this writer can tell, was simply that many students were standing in solidarity with Palestinians. At the end of November, the student group Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights organized BDS Week. Without citing a single incident of actual racism, the Gazette painted a picture of the discussion series as hateful.

Reporter Karen Seidman simply quoted an individual decrying "a hostile environment on campus" and another who denounced "speakers slandering Israeli tactics and spewing hate."

Netanyahu: ‘Arab terror’ cannot be compared to ‘Jewish terror’

In lieu of growing Israeli focus on Jewish extremism, Israel’s Prime Minister on Sunday said that comparing “Arab terror and Jewish terror” was impossible, Israeli media reported.

During a weekly meeting, Benjamin Netanyahu said: "Here we condemn and they [the Palestinians] praise," according to Israeli daily Haaretz.

The PM said that "Jewish terror" was rare, while “Arab terror” frequently took place on a large scale.

Netanyahu stated that while Israeli leadership condemned terror attacks carried out by Jews, the Palestinian Authority “encourages terror and incites.”

Heroic Judge Tosses Out "Criminal Defamation of Jews" Charge In Montana

28-year-old David Joseph Lenio had faced up to ten years in prison if convicted of "Criminal Defamation" of Jews under Montana's oppressive statute. Montana Prosecutor Stacy Bowman had aggressively argued Lenio's prosecution for statements he allegedly posted to Twitter earlier this year. But Flathead County, Montana District Judge Heidi J. Ulbricht ruled that Montana's criminal defamation law was overbroad and tossed the charge out. Lenio still faces a separate charge of intimidation, for which he reportedly will stand trail in January, although it's rumored that a plea deal will be reached. In her ruling tossing out the criminal defamation of Jews charge, Judge Ulbricht began "it appears that the charge is based on allegations that defendant posted violent messages on twitter asserting that Jewish people have harmed U.S. politics, degraded the national economy, hate free speech, and "are known bullsh-ters."

Why is the U.S. subsidizing Israeli settlements?

A few miles away from Efrat sits the pleasant campground of Oz Vegaon, a West Bank outpost built without the required land allocation and planning permits from the Israeli Civil Administration. Campers, tourists and right-wing groups gather here to enjoy the newly constructed facilities. Women in Green helped to build Oz Vegaon last year, naming it after three Jewish teens murdered by Palestinians not too far from there. Some of the money it used on the site traveled some 5,700 miles from the center of Manhattan. Matar’s group is one of many settler organizations fueled with tax-exempt American dollars, of which increasing amounts arrive each year.

Ex-Shin Bet chief: Far-right threat today is ‘worse than before Rabin’s murder’

“We’re at a worse point than before the assassination of Rabin,” said Carmi Gillon, who headed the agency when Rabin was murdered, in a Channel 2 interview on Friday night.

Israel is killing them.

Bethlehem-area village sealed by Israeli military for weeks

The movement of residents in Ras Al-Wad southwest of Bethlehem has been cut off for weeks by Israeli military forces, locals said Wednesday.

A resident told Ma’an that the forces closed off the main entrance to the small village with large mounds of dirt around three weeks ago, and the road has remained closed since.

The road was used by residents in Ras al-Wad to access a main highway nearby. While they have been able to find an alternate route — a one-way dirt road that connects to the nearby village of Beit Sahour — access to the highway is severely limited, locals said.

“They just don’t want Arabs accessing the highway,” a Ras al-Wad resident told Ma’an.

Aired by Israel’s Channel 10 News on 12-23-2015, the video has shocked and revolted much of Israel. Israel’s Chief Rabbis condemned the behavior shown by the settlers in this video, as did Knesset members, including at least one right-wing supporter of radical settlers.

Instead of baubles and tinsel, the Resistance Tree was decorated with tear gas canisters clinking together like bells, photos of Palestinians recently killed or detained, Palestinian national scarves and sling shots.

Israeli Embassy Trolls White House, Exclusively Gifts Settlement Goods

This year’s holiday gifts from the Israeli embassy come with a politically charged message: the occupied Palestinian territories are part of Israel.

Israel's ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, tweeted on Monday that all of the presents he is sending this holiday season will be products produced in the occupied West Bank and Golan Heights. The gifts will include wine, olive oil, body cream, and halva, the Israeli embassy told The Huffington Post.

In a letter to gift recipients, Dermer described his decision as an effort to “combat the latest effort by Israel’s enemies to destroy the one and only Jewish state,” specifically referencing the recent European Union decision to label goods originating in the occupied Palestinian territories to differentiate them from products made within Israel’s 1967 borders.

Flashback 1998 - "The Final War for Jerusalem - Why Permanent Israeli Victory Is Now Within Reach"

As the world plunges headlong toward the imminent revelation of Moshiach while the last walls of the exile disintegrate, the number of confused gentiles ready to change is rising exponentially. If the Jewish people immediately begin preparing adequate structures for the Noachide movement, this tide will be channeled directly into a glorious revelation of Truth.

But if we allow ourselves to be caught unprepared, this same overwhelming force for social change can, G-d forbid, be diverted to empower Amalek's final assault on holiness. It is not a matter of whether gentile society will explode in the face of the growing crisis; this event is an inevitable, and fast-approaching, reality. We do not want to miss this incredible opportunity to provide light in the final moments of darkness.

Israel’s sea blockade of Gaza motivated by gas finds

Calling the gas under the Mediterranean Sea “a gift from God,” Netanyahu vowed his decision would lead Israel to energy independence.

Fifteen years ago, the late Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat made a similar declaration as he stood aboard a fishing vessel in the Mediterranean, while British Gas confirmed the presence of natural gas less than 20 nautical miles off the coast of the Gaza Strip, within the occupied territory’s maritime zone.

“It’s a gift from God to us, to our people, to our children,” Arafat said. “This will provide a solid foundation for our economy, for establishing an independent state with holy Jerusalem as its capital.”

But fifteen years later the discovery of many rich gas fields in the eastern Mediterranean has reaped no benefits for Palestinians – and is likely the motive for Israel’s devastating maritime blockade on Gaza.

The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has previously hinted at the prospect of taking away residency rights from some Palestinians, seemingly manipulating public fears about a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence that began around two months ago.

But the new figures, reported by the pro-Likud Hebrew Channel 2 and the Anadolou Agency in Turkey, would also impact Palestinians inside the wall and threatens to dramatically alter the demographic balance of Jerusalem.

European tourists staying away from Israel in droves

Israel’s tourism industry went into free fall as a result of its summer 2014 assault on Gaza, during which its army killed 2,200 Palestinians, including 551 children, and left much of the territory devastated.

The number of tourists was lower compared to the prior year’s figure in every month from July 2014. That was until July this year when the number of visitors finally clawed its way back almost to 2013 levels.

Merry Christmas - KILLING THE FAMILY OF JESUS

Jesus was part of an extended family. The Bible says he had brothers and sisters. Some churches try to spin that these were only cousins, or Joseph's from a previous marriage, but Mary, Jesus' mother, was not an only child. At the very least, Jesus had cousins, Aunts, and Uncles. John the Baptist was Jesus' second cousin according to Luke 1:5-38.

For the purpose of this discussion, we do not need to go into the question of whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had a family.

But the fact is that Jesus had kinfolk; blood relations, at least on his mother's side (although the Bible provides a paternal genealogy for Jesus back to the House of David).

Those kinfolk had children. Those children had children. Those children had children. And so forth.

Modern genetics testing has demonstrated that modern-day Palestinians have a direct genetic trail back to the biblical Israelites.

#SettlersRule ~~ 3 GENERATIONS TO BE EVICTED TODAY IN EAST JERUSALEM

The family has already faced two attempts this year by Israeli occupation forces and settlers to remove them from their home, which is steps from Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque.

“The simple fact is that our house in particular is being targeted because it is the last Palestinian household left in the building and the neighborhood. If we are evicted, Ateret Cohanim will have a huge property [in the Muslim quarter] that is only inhabited by Israeli settlers,” Nora’s son Rafat Sub Laban told The Electronic Intifada in March, referring to one of the settler groups that is spearheading the takeover.

“This case sits within a context where hundreds of Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem are at risk of forced displacement due to settler activities” in Jerusalem, the United Nations special rapporteurs on the right to housing and the human rights of Palestinians wrote last April.

Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire

Loud explosion have been heard across the Gaza Strip after the Israeli Air Force reportedly carried out strikes on alleged terror targets following a rocket attack on Israeli territory earlier in the day.

Meanwhile sources on the ground told Quds Press that the strikes had been carried out by Israeli Apache helicopters, which launched at least two missiles at the northwestern Gaza strip, targeting al-Qassam Brigades, a military wing of the Palestinian Hamas organization.

Ambulances rushed to the scene with locals confirming to the publication that there had been “widespread damage” from the strike. It was not immediately clear if anyone was wounded in the strike.

Trump Confronted On Dancing JEWISH ISRAELIS, Not Muslims

Trump's Secret Service Agent Says "Let's Not Get Everyone Riled Up Okay?" I actually pulled off getting a FRONT ROW SEAT, ten feet away from him, at Donald Trump's forum yesterday at the University of South Carolina with the State Attorney General. It was not easy to do, but it can be done. I encourage everyone to do the same, and to learn from my mistakes. I agree with most of what Trump says, for example about guns, the border, Obamacare, etc. I'm not a big supporter of interrupting people's speech, so I chose not to do that. Plus, as I explain, it would have been immediately drowned out as the Trump team told the crowd to do in case of disruptions. Instead, I had a chance to talk to Donald personally afterwards, when he went around to shake hands and sign autographs. I asked him about the undue influence of the Israeli lobby.

ISRAELI INJUSTICE THAT YOU WON’T READ ABOUT IN THE WEST ….

The five teenagers (16-17 years old at the time) from the village of Hares (Salfit governorate, West Bank, occupied Palestine) were kidnapped from their homes by the Israeli army in March 2013. The teens were accused of throwing stones at illegal settler cars, one of which drove under a truck that was parked along Route 5 near the village of Hares. The driver’s children were injured during the accident and one of them died two years later after pneumonia complications. The boys denied throwing stones but were forced to sign ‘confessions’ following torturous interrogations at the hands of Israeli secret services. There was never any evidence of the boys’ guilt but it is sadly a reality in the Israeli military court system that does not comply with due process and convicts Palestinians at a 99.7% rate.

Tortured Palestinian prisoner found in Israeli jail with 28 cigarette burns on hands, chest and back

The Palestinian Authority’s department of prisoners’ affairs on Monday alleged that Israeli forces tortured a Palestinian prisoner charged with attempting to stab an Israeli soldier. Legal affairs director Louay Akka said Palestinian prisoner Wasim Marouf was covered with 28 cigarette burns on his hands, chest and back. Akka became aware of Marouf’s injuries while visiting Ofer prison where the man is being held. Akka condemned Marouf’s treatment, calling his injuries “unfathomable,” and those responsible “criminal.” “I don’t know the nature of the directives or training [the Israeli guards] must have received to become this brutal,” Akka said. Marouf also suffers from epilepsy, mental illness, and gangrene on the right side of his body. Recently, Marouf underwent surgery to have a diseased kidney removed. Prisoners’ rights group Addameer has long reported that treatment of Palestinian detainees by Israeli forces tantamount to torture is “widespread and systematic.”
