IsraHell’s Gulag Prison Hell

NOVANEWS

by Stephen Lendman

 

For decades, Palestinians have been slaughtered, displaced, intimidated, humiliated, collectively punished, and denied equal rights as Jews. They’ve also been mass imprisoned.

Palestine is Israeli occupied territory. Military orders govern all aspects of daily life. Democratic rights are denied. Freedom is a non-starter, persecution a way of life.

Gaza is an open-air prison. The West Bank and East Jerusalem fare little better. Life in Occupied Palestine for about 4.2 million residents is hell. No one’s safe from Israel’s wrath.

According to the Addameer Prisoner Support group, over 700,000 Palestinians were imprisoned since June 1967. Over 20% of the population was affected. For males, it’s 40%. For women, it’s about 10,000 and for children around 7,000 since 2000 alone.

No other country comes close to these figures. None calling themselves democracies would dare. With the world’s largest prison population by far, America comes closest.

Mostly affected are Blacks, Latinos, and Muslims since Washington declared war on Islam. In America and Israel, praying to the wrong God is hazardous.

Palestinian prisoner numbers vary. Thousands are affected at all times. Virtually all are political prisoners. Arabs aren’t welcome in Israel. In Palestine they’re equated with terrorists.

Pre-dawn raids, arrests, false charges, harsh interrogations, torture, intimidation, rigged trials, and imprisonment terrorize them. Children young as 10 are affected. So is everyone wanting to live free on their own land in their own country. Perhaps one day, but not now.

Israel holds Palestinians in 17 prisons, four interrogation centers, and another four for shorter-term detentions. All but one are in Israel in violation of Fourth Geneva’s Article 76. It states:

“Protected persons accused of offences shall be detained in the occupied country, and if convicted they shall serve their sentences therein.”

Proper treatment is also covered. Israel spurns all international law obligations. Palestinian prisoners suffer most.

Military orders divide criminality into five categories:

  1. “Hostile Terrorist Activity”
  2. Disturbance of public order
  3. “Classic” criminal offenses
  4. Illegal presence in Israel
  5. Traffic offenses

Broadly defined ones criminalize “many aspects of Palestinian civic life.” For example, belong to the wrong political party and risk prosecution. Displaying a Palestinian flag is criminalized.

Peacefully demonstrating is considered disrupting public order. “Pouring coffee for a member of a declared illegal association can be seen as support for a terrorist organization.”

So can dozens of other non-threatening aspects of daily life conducted freely in real democracies. Not in Palestine, and increasingly also risky in America.

Prison life for Palestinians is hell. Horrific conditions include severe overcrowding, poor ventilation and sanitation, no change of clothes or adequate clothing, wooden planks with thin mattresses and filthy blankets, inadequate food in terms of quality, quantity or conformance with dietary requirements, poor medical care, and restricted or no access to family members and counsel, among other abuses.

Isolation is worse. Alone or with one other prisoner, lockdown runs 23 hours daily. Most cells are 1.5 by 2 meters to 3 by 3.5. Little light or air gets in. It’s almost like being entombed. International law is violated.

Under Article 10 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR):

“All persons deprived of their liberty shall be treated with humanity and with respect for the inherent dignity of the human person.”

In or out of prison, Palestinians are denied all rights. The Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners explicitly states isolation for punishment should be infrequent and of limited duration. Under Article 31:

“Corporal punishment, punishment by placing in a dark cell, and all cruel, inhuman or degrading punishments shall be completely prohibited as punishments for disciplinary offences.”

The Basic Principles for the Treatment of Prisoners encourage the restriction or abolition of isolation as punishment.

When imposed, strict rules govern treatment Israel spurns with impunity. Whether isolated or part of the general prison population, Palestinians are treated horrifically.

Denied virtually all rights, they use the only one remaining. Refusing food is their weapon of choice. Growing numbers employ it. On April 17, over 1,200 Palestinian prisoners began hunger striking for justice.

On April 24, the International Middle East Media Center estimated around 3,000 “as (growing) waves of detainees” demand international law guaranteed rights.

Many call it “the battle of empty bowels.” They demand better conditions and treatment. They include ending torture, ill-treatment, administrative detention, isolation, night raids, humiliating/invasive searches, and other forms of abuses.

They also want family visitations and access to counsel. Most of all, they want freedom. Being Palestinian got them imprisoned. So did nonviolently resisting occupation, persecution, land theft, and colonization of their country.

Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) head Qaddoura Fares said some administrative detainees reached the “no return point.” They’ve been hunger striking over 50 days and won’t quit until free.

Others show equal resolve. Israel reacted as expected by cracking down harder. Palestinian Prisoners Club representative Amani Sarahna said “(a)ll prisoners’ belongings were confiscated except their towels and shoes.”

Organizers called for supportive Gaza and West Bank rallies. Sustained efforts outside and within prison walls draw widespread attention and have the best chance of changing what shouldn’t be tolerated anywhere.

Prisoners’ only outside links are family members and counsel. Denial of either violates international law.

On April 17, the Adalah Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and Al Mezan Center for Human Rights discussed denying access to counsel to exert pressure on Palestinian prisoners.

“The right of a detainee to meet with and be represented by an attorney has long been recognized as a basic constitutional right, one which derives from an individual’s rights to personal liberty, dignity and due process,” they said.

In Sufian v. Commander of IDF Forces in Gaza, Israel’s Supreme Court recognized this right. Moreover, it disqualified evidence obtained by violating it. However, the Court stopped short of including so-called “security detainees.” They’re heroic, not criminals.

As a result, Israel inflicts harsher treatment. It includes denying access to counsel. Israel’s High Court concurred. In the Sufian ruling, it rejected petitioner’s request for attorney/client meetings.

It argued that according to classified material, doing so would compromise regional security and hamstring investigative procedures. The Court left unexamined arrest and interrogation procedures. It chose only to rule based on classified General Security Service (GSS) material.

ICCPR’s Article 14:

“All persons shall be equal before the courts and tribunals.”

“To be tried in his presence, and to defend himself in person or through legal assistance of his own choosing; to be informed, if he does not have legal assistance, of this right; and to have legal assistance assigned to him….”

Right to counsel doesn’t end behind bars. It derives from the recognized right to personal liberty, dignity, due process, and judicial fairness.

Israel’s Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty protects both rights from “deprivation or restriction of the liberty of a person by imprisonment, arrest, extradition or otherwise.”

Everyone is “entitled to protection of their life, body and dignity.”

The right to counsel is universally recognized. America’s Sixth Amendment mandates it. No democracy excludes. Doing so violates a fundamental right.

Israel targets Palestinians it wants denied any chance for justice. Israel’s no democracy. It keeps finding new ways proving it.

A Final Comment

Through February 2012 the Israel Prison Service (IPS) held 4,631 security prisoners, according to Adalah. They’re held “under much harsher and more severe detention conditions than criminal prisoners.”

As explained above, Israel’s Supreme Court lets the IPS distinguish between both categories and inflict pain accordingly. At the same time, the Court said “the IPS should balance prisoners’ rights with restrictions necessary to maintain security.” How it didn’t say.

Security prisoners may or may not receive family visits. Gazans are entirely denied. If permitted, only first-degree relatives are included.

All telephone contacts are prohibited. So is permission to leave prison temporarily in cases of first degree family member deaths.

Security prisoners’ social needs are ignored. Excluded are education and rehabilitation services. So is amnesty from Israel’s president or reduction of life sentences.

In 2011, restrictions were further tightened. Conditions worsened. Netanyahu publicly said measures were adopted to exacerbate prison harshness. More than ever, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment is policy.

Hunger strikers face collective punishment. All rights were denied them. Dozens were moved to isolated southern Negev’s Nafha Prison.

Its Section 4 cells are described as “dirty, dark, and unventilated, with insects and cockroaches crawling from mattresses.”

Prisoners’ health and well-being are endangered. They told Adalah about crowded small cells with poor sanitation and no separation between toilets and showers. Vermin infests them. Blackouts regularly occur.

Adalah petitioned IPS. It demanded Section 4 be closed. Two letters weren’t answered. At end of March, prisoners were transferred to another area just as bad.

Adalah called their treatment “a new form of collective punishment.” Treating Palestinians harshly “is characteristic of IPS’ security prisoner policy.”

Pain and suffering is featured. Rule of law principles are ignored. Police state cruelty substitutes for what even Israeli law mandates. When it comes to Palestinians, nothing is too abusive to impose.

Zionist Chief Admits Bluffing Iran

NOVANEWS
Benny Gantz Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces

We are not witnessing inner wars in the Israeli leadership, but a conscious effort to create disinformation on the plans of the State of Israel. The sharp inversion of the typical roles (warring generals, cautious politicians) is a further attempt to create confusion.

 

by Roy Tov

 

On April 25, 2012, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz gave a rare interview to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. As it invariably happens in recent years when Israeli leaders are interviewed, a possible war between Israel and Iran was at the center of the interview.

Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon

Oddly enough, the general indirectly admitted Israel is bluffing Iran; this interview sums up to several others given recently by Israeli leaders into a very disturbing picture.

Israel has not only disclosed the true message behind its public declarations, but also has heavily hinted at the result of any future negotiation.

“The military option is the last chronologically, but the first in terms of its credibility. If it’s not credible it has no meaning.We are preparing for it in a credible manner. That’s my job, as a military man,” said General Gantz.

This is a remarkably vague statement, especially by his inexplicable need to incessantly repeat the word “credible.” Judging his words from the point of view of a Hebrew speaker, such a statement is highly dubious.

I wouldn’t buy anything from this man; he probably means Israel will not attack Iran, but wants Iran to believe it will. Afterwards he added: “[Iran] will be able to decide whether to manufacture a nuclear bomb. It hasn’t yet decided whether to go the extra mile,” and “as long as its facilities are not bomb-proof, the program is too vulnerable, in Iran’s view.”Here, he awkwardly admitted an error recently committed by Israel’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Affairs, Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon on February 2 at the Hertzliya Conference. He said then that “the West has the ability to strike [Iran],” (see Israel Bluffs Iran for more details).

Unluckily, Ya’alon was bluffing and got caught; one week before Ya’alon’s belligerent remarks, the Wall Street Journal reported remarks by US defense officials according to which the Pentagon is not in possession of conventional arms strong enough to destroy all of Iran’s nuclear facilities, due to their being too deep for bunker-buster bombs. As commented upon in the past, Israel gets its GBU-28 Bunker Buster bombs from the USA. Thus, Israel cannot perform better than the USA on such an attack, especially taking into account the IDF limitations. Ya’alon bluffed.

 

In a wikileaks cable, Director of Policy and Political-Military Affairs at the Israel Ministry of Defense, Maj. General Amos Gilad, told American government officials, ‘we don’t do Gandhi very well’ in reference to unarmed demonstrations taking place throughout the West Bank…

Are these inner wars in the Israeli leadership?

This in-congruence was so odd, that I made a shortlist of the main Israeli leaders opinions on the topic of a war with Iran. On October 28, 2011, I analyzed the situation in Israeli Defense Ministry Acknowledges Defeat. The article followed a comment on Israel’s incapability of defeating Iran in an interview given by Major General Amos Gilad, Head of the Israeli Defense Ministry’s Diplomatic-Security Bureau. The surprising comment was made in a “Friday’s Cathedra” event in Ashkelon. It was later cited by Yedihot Ahahronot, the largest Hebrew newspaper. This couldn’t have been done without the silent support of the establishment. Gilad said that Netanyahu was the first to hear about a prediction of the Israeli intelligence services that Iran has decided to pursue the path of missiles and nuclear technologies development. He added that Netanyahu sees that as a “great threat,” and that this view is shared by Defense Minister Ehud Barak. The war plans of the latter were recently thwarted by the USA, at least until the November Presidential elections. Netanyahu’s support of the war is openly broadcast on an almost continuous basis by the Hebrew media: “Hold Me Back,” shouts Netanyahu. The support of a war on Iran is true also for Shimon Pereswho openly supports an attack on Iran in all the relevant interviews he gave in recent months.

Yet, Nahum Barnea—a leading Yedihot Ahahronot journalist—said on that Friday that the IDF Head of Staff Beni Gantz, Mossad Director Tamir Pardo, Head of Aman (IDF Military Intelligence Corps) Aviv Kochabi, and the Head of Shin Beth Yoram Cohen—in other words, Israel’s leading generals—oppose an attack on Iran. In the past Meir Dagan—Pardo’s predecessor as Mossad Director—defined such an attack as a “foolish idea” in several interviews. In the Israeli media conventions, the former Mossad Director is the closest one gets to a formal statement by this secretive organization. All these points of view were supported in all open interviews appearing in the Hebrew media.

Anti-Semitic Posters in Jerusalem | by the Youth of the Jewish Nationalistic Front

Let me further summarize: Leading Israeli politicians support war with Iran. Leading Israeli security services personnel oppose it. This is very odd. In the Israeli (and Western) reality, one expects the opposite: generals want war, politicians want industrial silence. Is this additional incongruence a sign of Jewish wisdom, or something else?

The hint to the truth is in the deed itself. General Gantz cannot give a free interview. IDF officers must get an approval for such an event; in the case of the IDF’s chief general, the approval must be given by the Minister of Defense himself. It is unlikely that Ehud Barak would have given such an approval without asking what General Gantz was planning to say on the issue of a war with Iran. Similarly, it is unlikely that General Gantz would utter an opinion contrary to the one of his boss without getting previous approval from Barak.

In other words, we are not witnessing inner wars in the Israeli leadership, but a conscious effort to create disinformation on the plans of the State of Israel. The sharp inversion of the typical roles (warring generals, cautious politicians) is a further attempt to create confusion.

To war or not to war?

The truth is that probably even Netanyahu doesn’t know for sure if Israel will attack Iran. The USA has imposed a veto on such an action until November, but after November Israel may be tempted into a nuclear attack on Iran, as it has been analyzed inIs this Israel’s last Independence Day? Netanyahu wants to keep an ambiguous position on the issue, as he does on Israel’s nuclear capabilities. Yet, inadvertently, Netanyahu disclosed a bigger secret. Israel has lost its right to be considered an honest partner to any talks.

Shimon Peres—Israel’s president—may seem active, but his political career was finished in 1981, when he and Menahem Begin competed against each other in what became the hottest campaign in Israel’s short history. Labor was trying to return to power after it lost it for the first time to the Likud Party in 1977. Following two racist events during his campaign, a comedian working for the Likud, Sefy (nickname for Yosef) Rivlin, was invited to run the Likud television campaign. He conducted a successful personal campaign against Peres. Its motto was “Ken VeLo,” namely “Yes and No” in Hebrew. Peres was presented answering “yes and no” to everything he was asked (“Do you want sugar in your coffee?” “Yes and No! Yes and No!”). The combination of Peres’ shaky reputation with the funny voice used by Rivlin and his very disturbing eyes transformed Peres into a clown forever. Peres never won an open political campaign again.

In 2012, the Israeli leadership is repeating Peres’ error on a larger scale. “Yes and No; Attack and Don’t Attack,” it is saying. “Credibility” was repeated time and again by General Gantz in yesterday’s interview. Yet, he and Israel’s leadership lost their credibility forever.

Zionist Provocateurs Close Down ‘Leipzig Meeting to Defend Günter Grass’

Right-wing Zionist provocateurs and student council representative close down ‘Leipzig meeting to defend Günter Grass’

 

Right-Wing Zionist Blocking the staircase

By our correspondents  / World Socialist.Org

Pro-Israeli Provocateurs with an American flag after the arrival of the police

On Tuesday, the International Students for Social Equality (ISSE), the student organization of the Socialist Equality Party (PSG), held the third in a series of meetings titled “Defend Günter Grass”.

As was the case in previous meetings in Frankfurt and Berlin, Tuesday’s meeting in Leipzig was subjected to a huge and coordinated provocation. In alliance with right-wing Zionist provocateurs, a representative of the student council at Leipzig University closed down the meeting prematurely.

At the start of the meeting, a group of right-wing opponents of Grass sought to gain entry. They denounced the author of The Tin Drum and Nobel prize winner as an anti-Semite and tore up leaflets advertising the meeting. There was no doubt they were intent on disrupting the event, and the organizers of the meeting refused to allow them to participate.

A short time later another group of aggressive Zionists turned up bearing Israeli flags, a banner with the inscription “Stop the mullah regime” and a megaphone. They attempted to disrupt the meeting from outside by loudly chanting “Long Live Israel” and “Down with the mullahs”. When this failed, the crowd of about 60 provocateurs gathered in front of the door to the meeting room and pounded on the door and walls.

On a number of occasions they physically attacked stewards and sought to forcibly invade the meeting. One of the hooligans shouted out: “Does anyone have an ice pick here?”, an obvious reference to the 1940 assassination of Leon Trotsky by a Stalinist agent using an ice pick.

When the meeting continued despite these attacks, a leader of the right-wing provocateurs read out a statement over a megaphone in the corridor outside the meeting. He began by braying: “Our intention was to read out this statement inside the ISSE meeting, but if we cannot get in, then I will read it out here.”

He called Grass a “notorious anti-Semite” who had already made clear where he stands by having briefly served in the SS as a 17-year-old at the end of World War II. Grass’ assertion that Israel was preparing a military first strike against Iran was nothing more than the repetition of the “anti-Semitic attacks made by the Iranian mullahs’ regime on Israel.”

He described Israel as a “shelter for the Jews” which had to be defended by all military means against “global anti-Semitic madness”. His argument was based on a grotesque distortion of history, aimed at exploiting the crimes of the Nazis and the Holocaust to justify and support the aggressive war policies of the US and Israeli governments.

At that point, two representatives of the student council, Marcel Wodniock and Jacob Heuschmidt, arrived. They demanded that the ISSE stewards move away from the door to allow the provocateurs access to the meeting. In an absurd argument, they invoked democratic principles, tolerance of dissent and free access to all public events to justify the complete disruption of the meeting and likely physical assault on those taking part.

Marcel Wodniock has studied law and knows that free access to public events does not mean allowing access to organized groups armed with banners and a megaphone who are clearly intent on violently disrupting the meeting. On the contrary, the organiser has the obligation to provide for the orderly running of the event and refuse entry to those clearly intent on provocation.

Wodniock lined up with the right-wing provocateurs and demanded that they be allowed to enter the meeting. The ISSE stewards countered by arguing that the right of assembly was a basic democratic and constitutional right. The student council is therefore obliged to defend a meeting approved by the university against provocateurs.

Wodniock responded angrily. He claimed that he would decide whether the meeting would continue and not the ISSE. To the cheers of the provocateurs, Wodniock declared the ISSE event to be over. Together with some pro-Israel thugs, he pushed stewards aside, stormed into the meeting room, pulled the plug of the PowerPoint presentation and demanded that the audience leave the room immediately.

Many participants reacted indignantly. Mathias, who had attended a lecture given by David North on Leon Trotsky and the defense of historical truth just a few weeks earlier was outraged. He had not thought such an attack on democratic rights was possible “here on the campus of the university”, he said. The lecture hall in which North had addressed an audience of more than 300 is located in the same building of the Leipzig University.

Even after the event, participants were harassed and attacked by the right-wing provocateurs. The ISSE announced that it will oppose the violent disruption of its meetings and called upon all those in attendance to intensify their defence of Günter Grass and the right to free speech.

Abbas Censors Truth

NOVANEWS

by Stephen Lendman

 

Israel notoriously censors truth. Military censorship bans or sanitizes material potentially harming Israel’s security. Media/government agreements comply.

Some make sense like banning reports beneficial to adversaries. Others don’t by suppressing information people have a right to know. For example, whatever affects their welfare and officials’ crimes need revealing so everyone knows.

Various Supreme Court decisions also limit content suppression to “tangible (or) near certain” instances of public endangerment. Of course, interpretations are crucial.

Authorities are increasingly hardline to get their way. In the process, fundamental rights are violated perhaps on the way to being entirely destroyed.

Israel prohibits Palestinian protests. Free expression is compromised. Classroom materials are rewritten. Only praise for Israel is allowed. Nakba denial persists. Academia is affected. Historical revisionism legitimizes crimes too important to whitewash.


Palestine Authority Targets Truth

On April 25, Haaretz headlined, “Palestinian Authority blocks news websites critical of Abbas”….saying:

The PA instructed ISPs to block access to critical news websites. There’s plenty to criticize Abbas for, especially for being a longtime Israeli collaborator against the interests of his own people. Instead of correcting what’s wrong, he wants truth suppressed.

The PA “blocked eight news (sites) operating in the West Bank.” They include Amad, Fatah, Fatah Voice, Firas Press, In Light Press, Karama Press, Kofia Press, Milad News, and Palestine Beituna.

The Palestinian communications company Paltel (part owned by the PA) agreed to the move. The sites focus on “internal Palestinian matters….” Earlier, the PA closed a critical TV station.

Attorney General Ahmad Al Mughani ordered the shutdown. He neither confirmed or denied it. Communication Minister Mashur Abu Daqqa said he was involved. “He makes his own rules in order to justify what is only his own decision,” he said.

Doing so violates the public interest, he added. In March, Al Mughani ordered a journalist arrested for reporting Palestinian Foreign Ministry corruption.

International Press Institute’s Naomi Hunt said the PA had no reason to jail Yousef al-Shayeb while investigating libel and defamation allegations regarding his January Jordanian newspaper story.

According to Hunt, if Foreign Ministry officials feel maligned, they can file civil suits in response. Jailing someone under investigation is out of line.

She added:

“If indeed Mr al-Shayeb is facing criminal charges, IPI (International Press Institute) would note that laws criminalizing press offenses are unnecessary given the existence of civil remedies, and serve only to deter investigative reporting.”

“Certainly journalists should never be jailed as a result of their work, and should not be compelled to reveal their sources.”

“Mr Al-Shayeb and his editors (at al-Ghad) should take responsibility for the story they published, but the imprisonment of Yousef Al-Shayeb is a violation of press freedom and we hope he is released immediately.”

Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki defended the arrest. He claimed he and the PA were victims, saying:

“I’m surprised some journalists reacted emotionally on behalf of their colleague without hearing the other side’s case, or considering for a moment if Yousef al-Shayeb is the oppressor or the oppressed.”

Al-Malki said Al-Shayeb knew his report was false. It claims the foreign minister promoted diplomat Safwat Ibraghit to deputy Paris ambassador despite knowing he has foreign intelligence ties.

Al-Shayeb claimed Ibraghit recruited Arab students to spy on Islamic groups in France and elsewhere abroad. He also said he shared information gotten with Palestinian and foreign intelligence agencies.

Al-Shayeb also accused al-Malaki, Palestinian National Fund Director Ramzi Khouri Abu Nabil, and PA Paris ambassador Hael al-Fahoum of complicity and nepotism in promoting Ibraghit despite foreign intelligence ties and other complaints charged.

He demanded Al-Shayeb apologize. Instead he defended his work. The foreign minister expected journalists to “expel (him) from their ranks. He has harmed the Palestinian media and published (false) reports. He should have been more professional.”

Al-Malki filed a $6 million defamation suit under Article 189 of Jordan’s Penal Code. According to human rights groups, it’s enforceable on the West Bank. It permits libel damages for print media reports.

Al-Shayeb’s also charged with defaming government officials. Under article 191, he faces up to two years in prison if convicted. Reports said Al-Ghad fired him.

That type accusation is serious. Journalists wouldn’t make it lightly. Other Palestinian colleagues and human rights groups denounced Al-Shayeb’s arrest. He alone was targeted. Ibraghit wasn’t questioned.

The Palestinian center for development and media freedom (MADA) demanded his immediate release. It also called for ending “the policy of arrest and detention of (Palestinian) journalists. Al-Shayeb was simply doing his job….”

Under Palestinian law, journalists aren’t obligated to reveal sources except on matters of national security, following a court order, or under unusual circumstances.

The International Press Institute (IPI) also questioned targeting Al-Shayeb for reporting on official wrongdoing. It said PA authorities had no reason to arrest him while investigating his charges continues.

Separately, PA authorities interrogated Tariq Khamis, a Zaman Press web site reporter. At issue were Facebook posts calling Abbas a traitor and an article about Palestinian youth groups highly critical of PA Amman peace negotiations with Israel.

Weeks earlier, PA security services arrested Wafa news journalist Rami Samara, held him a few hours, then released him. At issue was his critical Facebook comment about a PLO executive committee meeting and recent Amman peace talks with Israeli negotiators.

Samara told MADA he was interrogated, then asked to sign a statement. He refused because it included comments he hadn’t made. A solidarity sit-in by colleagues got him released.

MADA condemned his arrest as well as “the harassment of journalists who openly express their views.” It demanded security services respect press freedom.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) also denounced the PA arrests and harassment. These actions occurred despite announcing an annual press freedom award for exemplary journalism.

According to Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, the idea is about supporting local media and encouraging journalists to produce “quality and daring material that addresses citizens’ concerns.” In May, this year’s winner will be announced.

According to CPJ Deputy Director Robert Mahoney:

“It is ironic that Palestinian leaders, who for years have benefited from independent media coverage, should now try to stifle their own critical journalists. The Palestinian Authority should stop muzzling journalists and scouring social media posts looking for critics to punish.”

The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate (PJS), their main union, urged reporters to boycott the award in light of recent events. Following an emergency meeting, PJS asked them to focus on Al-Shayeb’s case. It called it a blow to press freedom.

Ironically, Fayyad called local media “one of the most important pillars of an independent Palestinian state, as it is the fourth branch of the government, which must be respected.”

He added that the award was established as “a commitment to the promise it made two years ago which is that it will always be supportive and a protector of freedom of expression and opinion.”

He and other PA officials can back that statement by dropping all charges against Al-Shayeb and apologize for mistreating him. Otherwise, Palestinian press freedom exists in name only, a meaningless pledge.

Leading candidate in Egypt presidential race calls ‘Israel’ peace accord ‘dead and buried’

NOVANEWS

By: Mark Glenn

Amr Moussa tells a mass rally in south Egypt that the Camp David Accords with Israel should be ‘consigned to the shelves of history.’

ed note–as much as this  may sound like a good idea to many people throughout the Middle East, and particularly to Egyptians, the fact is that this is EXACTLY what Israel wants in order to initiate a war with Egypt that will result in Israel re-conquering and straling the Sinai peninsula.  

Haaretz

The leading candidate in Egypt’s presidential race said on Sunday that the Camp David Accords should be consigned to the shelves of history, describing the agreement as “dead and buried.”

At a mass rally in southern Egypt, Amr Moussa, who is currently ahead in Egypt’s race for president, spoke of the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt, saying that “the Camp David Accords are a historical document whose place is on the shelves of history, as its articles talk about the fact that the aim of the agreement is to establish an independent Palestinian state.”

Moussa went on to say that there is “no such thing” as the Camp David agreement.   “This agreement is dead and buried. There is an agreement between Israel and Egypt that we will honor as long as Israel honors it. The Jewish document that defines relations between Israel and the Arabs is an Arab initiative from 2002 whose advancement should be bilateral: step for step, progress for progress.”

Moussa, who served for ten years as foreign minister under former president Hosni Mubarak (and left his post over disagreements with the former leader), differentitaties between the Camp David Accords, which include the Palestinian articles, and the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. The Egyptian public does not necessarily make the same differentiation, however. The Camp David Accords are seen as one whole, and all public discussions of them are seen as a test of the foreign policy that is expected of Egypt’s presidential candidates, and mainly code according to which U.S. policy towards each one of the candidates will be decided.

In a visit to the west of Egypt two weeks ago, Moussa described the agreement as “ink on paper whose period of authority is over,” without differentiating between the articles that deal with the Palestinians, and those that deal with peace with Israel. Although Moussa is leaning on the support of some of the secular parties and activist groups that were the backbone of the January revolution, it is actually Islamist leaders that are talking about their commitment to the Camp David Accords.

The head of Salafi Al-Nour party, for example, said in December last year that his movement is not opposed to the Camp David Accords, and that it is ready to negotiate with Israel. Representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, including Khairat Al-Shater, who until recently was their candidate for president, also emphasized their commitment to the Camp David Accords, and have passed on this sentiment to the U.S. administration.

Moussa, despite this, has followed a tough line on Israel for years. He designed Egypt’s foreign policy regarding Israel’s nuclear capabilities, a policy that calls for nuclear disarmament in the region, and he is particularly proud of his part in putting the Palestinian problem on the international list of priorities during his time as foreign minister.

Despite these views, 76-year-old Moussa says that – if elected – he will only serve one term as Egyptian president, a criticism that has come from those who are meant to be his supporters. One member of the Al Wafd party, for example, said that Moussa is the number one choice of the U.S., and that “even Israel does not express its worry that over his election. He announced his intention to stand for election as Egypt’s president from the house of the Saudi ambassador in Egypt, and no one knows are his sources of funding.”

القس تيري جونز يحرق نسخة من المصحف مجددا ويبث المشهد على الانترنت CONVICTED ZIONIST CRIMINAL

أقدم القس الأمريكي المتشدد تيري جونز على حرق نسخة من المصحف مرة أخرى، وقال انه بث المشهد عبر شبكة الانترنت، احتجاجا على اعتقال رجل الدين المسيحي يوسف نادرخاني في إيران.

وكانت وزارة الدفاع الأمريكية قد ناشدت جونز التفكير بعواقب العمل.

ولم تحصل عملية حرق المصحف الجديدة على تغطية إعلامية كبيرة في الولايات المتحدة، ولم يتم العثور على المقطع المزعوم على مواقع شبكة الانترنت.

يذكر أن جونز، الذي يرأس جماعة إنجيلية صغيرة متشددة تدعى “دوف وورلد أوتريتش سنتر” ومقرها فلوريدا، هدد فى سبتمبر/أيلول 2010 بإحراق نسخة من المصحف، ثم عاد وتراجع عن تهديده بعد مناشدات من مسؤولين أمريكيين، على رأسهم الرئيس باراك أوباما، خوفاً من رد فعل العالم الإسلامي. ونفذ جونز تهديده فى مارس/آذار من العام الماضي، ما أشعل موجة من المظاهرات المناوئة له في العديد من الدول الإسلامية خاصة أفغانستان، التى شهدت أعمال شغب أسفرت عن مقتل العشرات.

وأوضحت وسائل إعلام أمريكية ان عملية حرق المصحف الأخيرة وقعت يوم السبت، وقالت ان السلطات فرضت على الكنيسة غرامة قدرها 271 دولارا بسبب خرق قواعد السلامة من الحرائق

“The tendency toward conflict is in the essence of the Arab.” — Benzion Netanyahu, the prime minister’s father, who died Monday (from a 2009 interview).

Below are excerpts from a lengthy April 3, 2009 interview in the Israeli daily Maariv conducted by Sari Makover Belikov with Benzion Netanyahu, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s father, who died Monday morning at age 102. They were translated into English and published the same day by Noam Sheizaf on his personal blog, Promised Land. Benzion Netanyahu, who had a deep, formative influence on the prime minister’s thinking, and who will be widely remembered as a great Zionist visionary, held views on Arabs and war that were simply horrific.

According to the interview, Professor Netanyahu, then 99, a world-renowned historian of the Spanish Inquisition, spoke with perfect lucidity; in fact, he was about to leave for a working visit to the United States. The professor gave the interview without first telling the Prime Minister’s Office.  As walla.co.il reported, the prime minister tried to prevent its publication and even called Maariv’s publisher, Ofer Nimrodi, on the matter. Finally it was agreed that because of Prof. Netanyahu’s age, his son Iddo would be able to go over the father’s answers prior to publication. Noam felt this gave even further confirmation that Prof. Netanyahu was in full control of his faculties during the interview, since his son Iddo surely would not have let Maariv publish a text which did not reflect his father’s personality and views.

Excerpts:

On the “essence” of Arabs

Prof. Netanyahu: The Jews and the Arabs are like two goats facing each other on a narrow bridge. One must jump to the river – but that involves a danger of death. The strong goat will make the weaker one jump …  and I believe the Jewish power will prevail.

Q: What does the Arabs’ “jump” entail?

A: That they won’t be able to face [anymore] war with us, which will include withholding food from Arab cities, preventing education, terminating electrical power and more. They won’t be able to exist, and they will run away from here. But it all depends on the war, and whether we will win the battles with them.

Q: I suppose you don’t believe in the peace process.

A: I don’t see any signs that the Arabs want peace. …  We will face fierce attacks from the Arabs, and we must react firmly. If we don’t, they will go on and Jews will start leaving the country. …  We just handed them a strong beating in Gaza, and they still bargain with us over one hostage. …  If we gave them a beating that would really hurt them, they would have given us Gilad Shalit back.

Q: Operation Cast Lead was one of the worst beatings we ever handed on a civilian population.

A: That’s not enough. It’s possible that we should have hit harder.

Q: You don’t like the Arabs, to say the least.

A: The Bible finds no worse image than that of the man from the desert. And why? Because he has no respect for any law. Because in the desert he can do as he pleases. The tendency toward conflict is in the essence of the Arab. He is an enemy by essence. His personality won’t allow him any compromise or agreement. It doesn’t matter what kind of resistance he will meet, what price he will pay. His existence is one of perpetual war.

Q: Is there any hope of peace?

A: Out of an agreement? No. The other side might keep the peace if it understands that doing anything [else] will cause it enormous pain. The two-state solution doesn’t exist. There are no two peoples here. There is a Jewish people and an Arab population. …  There is no Palestinian people, so you don’t create a state for an imaginary nation. …  They only call themselves a people in order to fight the Jews.

Q: So what’s the solution?

A: No solution but force …  strong military rule. Any outbreak will bring upon the Arabs enormous suffering. We shouldn’t wait for a big uprising to start, but rather act immediately with great force to prevent them from carrying on. … If it’s possible, we should conquer any disputed territory in the Land of Israel. Conquer and hold it, even if it brings us years of war. We should conquer Gaza, and parts of the Galilee, and the Golan. This will bring upon us a bloody war, since war is difficult for us – we don’t have a lot of territory, while the Arabs have lots of space to retreat to. But that’s the only way to survive here.

There is valuable experience [on this matter] we don’t pay notice to. I mean the Ottoman rule over the Arabs. The Turks ruled over the Arabs for 400 years, and there was peace and quiet everywhere. The Arabs hated the Ottomans, but every little thing they did brought mass killings and hanging in towns squares. They were hanging people in Damascus, and Izmir …  every town had hanging posts in its center. … The Arabs were so badly beaten, they didn’t dare revolt. Naturally, I don’t recommend the use of hangings as a show of force like the Turks did, I just want to show that the only thing that might move the Arabs from the rejectionist position is force.

On the peace process

Prof. Netanyahu: The problem with the Left is that it thinks the war with the Arabs is like all the wars that nations around the world are conducting. These wars end with a compromise after one side wins or after both sides get tired from war and understand that victory is not possible. But in the Arabs’ case, their nature and character won’t allow any compromise. When they talk of compromise, it’s a way of deceiving. They want to make the other side stop giving its best efforts and fall into the trap of compromising. The Left helps them with that goal.

Q: If compromise replaces war, what is the damage?

A: Compromise is not realistic. It weakens our positions and brings us to a state of limpness, of false believes, of illusions. Every illusion is weakening.

On Arab citizens of Israel

Prof. Netanyahu: We don’t have a real partnership with them. The Arab citizens’ goal is to destroy us. They don’t deny that they want to destroy us. Except for a small minority who is willing to live with us under certain agreements because of the economic benefits they receive, the vast majority of the Israeli Arabs would chose to exterminate us if they had the option to do so. Because of our power they can’t say this, so they keep quiet and concentrate on their daily life.

I think we should speak to the Israeli Arabs in the language they understand and admire – the language of force. If we act with strength against any crime they commit, they will understand we show no forgiveness. Had we used this language from the start, they would have been more careful.

I am talking about strength that is based on justice. They should know that we will maintain a just attitude toward them, but a tough one. You don’t kill or hurt people or deny their right to make a living just like that. In the villages that we rule, we need to grant them all the rights – infrastructure, and transportation and education …  but they have to give things in return. If the teachers are inciting the students, we should close the schools and expel the teachers. …  We should preserve their rights, but also ours.

On his son, Israel’s prime minister 

Prof. Netanyahu: Benjamin, or Bibi, is, in several aspects, a great man. He can influence and motivate people to do what’s necessary. …  He is loyal to his people, and has a sense of responsibility. …  He is not one who prefers the comfort of compromise just to rid himself of pressure.

Q. Is he influenced by your opinions?

A: Sometimes I feel Bibi is influenced by them from a very early age, and sometimes I don’t. We don’t always have the same opinions…

Q: And still, how much do you think you’ve influenced his opinions today?

A: I have a general idea. Bibi might aim for the same goals as mine, but he keeps to himself  the ways to achieve them, because if he gave expression to them, he would expose his goals.

Q: Is that your wish?

A: No, I just believe that this could be the case. Because he is smart. Because he is very careful. Because he has his ways of handling himself. I am talking about tactics regarding the revealing of theories that people with a different ideology might not accept. That’s why he doesn’t expose them – because of the reaction from his enemies as well as from the people whose support he seeks. It’s an assumption, but it might be correct.

أفغانستان: عنف على وقع موعدَيْ انسحاب «الأطلسي» والانتخابات الرئاسية

كابول – كاميليا انتخابي فرد
في الأسبوع الماضي، شنّ متمردون سلسلة من الهجمات العنيفة في كابول وفي أربع محافظات أخرى في أفغانستان، مُبدين بذلك قدرة كبيرة على تحدّي جهاز الاستخبارات الحكومي في مدن كبيرة مثل كابول وجلال آباد.

وبعد حوالى أسبوع على تسليم العمليات الليلية إلى قوات الأمن الأفغانية، تحدّت حركة «طالبان» والمتمرّدون قدرات أجهزة الاستخبارات الأفغانية والقوات الخاصة من خلال إرسال 36 انتحارياً إلى أنحاء مختلفة من البلد، علماً أنّ معظمهم شنّ هجوماً على العاصمة. وفي 15 نيسان (أبريل)، دخل نحو 20 انتــحارياً في غضون دقائق إلى كابول مدجّجين برشاشات ثقيلة وقاوموا قوات الأمن الأفغانية على مدى 20 ساعة. ولم يكن الهدف من الهجمات التي نفّذت من أعلى المباني الشاهقة ضد سفارات أجنبية ومقر «إيساف» التسبب بسقوط ضحايا مدنيين، بل زرع خوف دائم في نفوس الشعب الأفغاني القلق أصلاً على المستقبل بعد انسحاب القوات الأميركية والحلفاء عام 2014.

لم تذكر حركة «طالبان» التي أعلنت مسؤوليتها عن سلسلة الهجمات التي وقعت في كابول وإقليم نانجهار وباكتيا وجلال آباد، أسباباً واضحة دفعتها إلى شنّ هذه الهجمات، كما أعلنت شبكة «حقاني» مسؤوليتها، معتبرة أنّ الهجمات نُفّذت للثأر من الجندي الأميركي الذي قتل 16 فرداً من عائلة واحدة في قندهار منذ شهر. غير أنه لا يمكن إثبات صحة هذا الادعاء، لا سيّما أنّ المناطق التي استهدفتها الهجمات الأخيرة لم تكن قريبة من المقرات الأميركية، مثل السفارة الأميركية أو قاعدة «باغرام» الأميركية في كابول.

اليوم، يجري الحديث في كابول عمّا يسمى بشبكة حقاني. لكن يبدو أنّ هذه الشبكة تشكّل غطاء جيّداً للعمليات التي تنفذّها حركة «طالبان». كما حمّل البعض العضو الأسبق في جماعات «المجاهدين» قلب الدين حكمتيار مسؤولية الأعمال الإرهابية المريبة التي وقعت خلال الأشهر القليلة الماضية.

ويُعرف حكمتيار الذي تولى على مدى سنة رئاسة الوزراء في حكومة «المجاهدين»، بالدور الدامي الذي أدّاه عند تدمير كابول خلال الحرب الأهلية الأليمة التي اندلعت في التسعينات. ويرى عدد كبير من الأشخاص في النخبة الأفغانية، أنّ حكمتيار هو العقل المدبّر للهجمات التي شُنّت في أفغانستان بما في ذلك الهجوم الذي وقع في الأسبوع الماضي في كابول.

حالياً، يربط تحالف متين بين قلب الدين حكمتيار وحركة «طالبان». ويضمّ حزبه «الحزب الإسلامي» أعضاء مدربين وأوفياء، علماً أنّ البعض منهم يعمل في إدارة كارزاي ويتبوأ مناصب عليا في الحكومة الأفغانية. تمّ تحميل «الحزب الإسلامي» مسؤولية القتل والدمار الكبير الذي لحق بكابول في نهاية التسعينات من القرن الماضي، ما دفع عدداً كبيراً من الأفغان العاديين إلى الترحيب ببروز حركة «طالبان».

ويرى السياسيون الأفغان، أنّ حكمتيار هو أحد أهم الزعماء المتمردين الناشطين في أفغانستان إلى جانب الملا محمد عمر وشبكة حقاني.

من المهمّ بالنسبة إلى الرئيس كارزاي أن تصل محادثات السلام مع حركة «طالبان» إلى مرحلة معيّنة قبل نهاية عام 2014 ورحيل القوات الأجنبية. هل بوسعه بلوغ هذا الهدف في غضون هذا الوقت القصير في حين يقتل المتمردون أكثر الأشخاص نفوذاً وأكثر السياسيين كفاءة في أفغانستان لا سيّما خلال العام الماضي؟

أشار ديبلوماسي أفغاني معني بالمجلس الأعلى للسلام، إلى أنّ «حكمتيار طموح ويعتبر نفسه مرشحاً قوياً في الانتخابات الرئاسية القادمة». كما لفت المصدر نفسه إلى أنّ حكمتيار يعتبر أنه قادر على العمل مع حركة «طالبان» وعلى إقناعها بوقف القتال في حال أصبح رئيساً. وبما أنه ينتمي إلى قبيلة البشتون الإثنية ومقرّب من بعض المجموعات التابعة لحركة «طالبان»، يعتبر حكمتيار المرشح الأنسب للرئاسة خلال الفترة التي تلي الاحتلال.

كان برهان الدين ربّاني خصم حكمتيار. ويرى قادة كبار في جماعات المجاهدين أنّ عدداً كبيراً من أعداء حكمتيار قتلوا خلال السنة الماضية. ومع رحيل الرجال الذين يحظون بمكانة عالية والجديرين بالثقة مثل ربّاني، سيكون حكمتيار قادراً على فرض نفسه كمرشح جدير بالثقة بسبب غياب المرشحين الأكفاء الآخرين.

والواقع أنّ محادثات السلام لم تحقّق بعد نجاحاً مهمّاً، لأنه من غير الواضح كيف أنّ عدداً كبيراً من المجموعات والخصوم لا يزالون يتقاتلون بعضهم مع بعض.

تمّ إعلان خبر تجديد محادثات السلام مع «الحزب الإسلامي» حين أعلن الرئيس كارزاي أنّ الانتخابات الرئاسية في أفغانستان ستجري بعد سنة، أي في عام 2013 في محاولة منه ربما للحصول على مساعدة أكبر وعلى التزامات أمنية من المجتمع الدولي قبل رحيل القوات الأجنبية.

وقبل أسبوع من الهجمات الأخيرة في كابول، أعلن المجلس الأعلى للسلام أنه سيستأنف قريباً محادثات السلام مع حكمتيار. تمّ إنهاء محادثات السلام سريعاً مع ممثلي حكمتيار منذ أشهر عدّة، بعد أن طرح حكمتيار 17 شرطاً، فضلاً عن مطالبته برحيل القوات الأجنبية وإرساء حكومة انتقالية بعد إجراء الانتخابات الرئاسية. واعتبر ربّاني والرئيس كارزاي هذه المطالب غير مقبولة، فتمّ حينها إنهاء المحادثات.

ومنذ الأسبوع الماضي، انتقد حميد كارزاي حلف شمال الأطلسي وأجهزة الاستخبارات الأفغانية لأنها أخفقت في تفادي الهجمات الأخيرة. غير أنه أشاد بقوات الأمن والشرطة الأفغانية لإبدائها قدرة كبيرة في محاربة الإرهاب.

غير أنّ ضعف الاستخبارات الذي انتقده الرئيس ليس جديداً على أفغانستان،

فمنذ سنتين تقريباً انعقد مجلس السلام في كابول، الذي جمع حوالى 1600 زعيم وطني لمناقشة الخروق الأمنية التي قد تعرضهم لخطر هجوم من حركة «طالبان»، وقد أجبر كارزاي رئيس الاستخبارات عمر الله صالح ووزير الداخلية أتمار على الاستقالة. وعارض سياسيون خارجيون ومحليون القرار الذي اتخذه كارزاي.

وبعد أيام على إقالته من منصبه، أخبرني صالح أنّ الرئيس كارزاي كان يتعرّض لضغوطات كبيرة من باكستان لا سيّما من أجهزة الاستخبارات للتخلّص من صالح في حال أراد كارزاي أن يتحسّن الأمن الأفغاني وأن يحصل على تعاون باكستان. وأذعن كارزاي، فرحّل صالح عن منصبه، إلا أنّ جهاز الاستخبارات لم يف بوعده ولم يتمّ تحسين الأمن في أفغانستان. وفي أيلول (سبتمبر) 2011، تعرّضت كابول لهجمات نفذّتها حركة «طالبان» ضد السفارة الأميركية وتمّ منذ ستة أشهر اغتيال الرئيس الأفغاني الأسبق ربّاني الذي كان مفاوضاً كبيراً مع حركة «طالبان» في المجلس الأعلى للسلام، في منزله.

وشكّلت الهجمات الأخيرة أكبر سلسلة من الهجمات تشهـــدها كابــــول بعد حـــــــكم حركة «طالبان». لماذا لم يجبر الرئيــــس كارزاي رئيس الأمن في البلد على الاستقالة في حين يتمّ تحميل فشل أجهزة الاستخبارات المسؤولية؟

كان أداء الشرطة وقوات الأمن الأفغانية جيّداً . أدّت العملية الليلية الأفغانية إلى بلوغ المرحلة النهائية من القتال ضد الإرهابيين في كابول، وتعدّ مصدر فخر لأفغانستان. تمّ التشكيك بقدرة أفغانستان واستعدادها لإدارة العمليات الليلية التي سُلّمت إلى جهاز الأمن الأفغاني قبل أسبوع على وقوع الهجمات. إلا أنها نجحت في مواجهة الانتحاريين الذين نفذّوا هجماتهم في الأسبوع الماضي. يشعر البلد بفخر وبرضى كبيرين، علماً أنّ هذا الشعور كان غائباً منذ مقتل رئيس الائتلاف الشمالي أحمد شاه مسعود. لقد أخفقت أجهزة استخبارات الحكومية وكارزاي أيضاً، إلا أنّ الشعب الأفغاني وقوات الأمن الأفغانية نجحت في الدفاع عن نفسها

مقتل رئيس فرع المخابرات الجوية السورية فى تفجيرات إدلب

اليوم السابع

قال الناشط السورى زاهر الإدلبى إن تفجيرات إدلب التى وقعت اليوم أسفرت عن مقتل العميد على يوسف رئيس فرع المخابرات الجوية فى إدلب، مشيرا إلى أنه كان يقف إلى جانب الثورة السورية وليس مع نظام الرئيس بشار
الأسد.

ونوه فى تصريح خاص لتليفزيون هيئة الإذاعة البريطانية (بى بى سي) اليوم الاثنين بأن النظام السورى أراد التخلص منه ، مضيفا أن عددا من أفراد بعثة المراقبين الدوليين توجهوا إلى أماكن التفجيرات لرصدها بعد 10 دقائق من وقوعها فى صحبة عناصر الأمن والشبيحة.

وأشار الناشط السورى إلى أن أغلب الجرحى من المدنيين ، كما تم فرض حظر التجوال فى المنطقة والتشديد على حواجز الدخول والخروج إلى إدلب ، مؤكدا انقطاع وسائل الاتصال فى أغلب المناطق بإدلب ، إضافة إلى انقطاع المياه والكهرباء .

وأكد أنه تم تدمير مبنيين مقابل فرع مبنى الأمن العسكرى إضافة إلى تدمير الواجهات الزجاجية على مسافة كيلومترا حول منطقتى التفجير ، حيث قالت مصادر محلية فى إدلب أن التفجيرين استهدفا مقر الأمن العسكرى ومقر المخابرات الجوية.

وكانت وكالة الأنباء السورية قد أشارت إلى أن انتحاريين فجرا نفسيهما صباح اليوم بسيارتين مفخختين الأولى فى ساحة هنانو والثانية فى شارع الكارلتون بمحافظة إدلب؛ مما أسفر عن مصرع ثمانية من المدنيين وقوات حفظ النظام بينهم ضابط وإصابة نحو مائة معظمهم من المدنيين.

فى المقابل أفادت الهيئة العامة للثورة السورية بمقتل 20 شخصا وسقوط عدد من الجرحى فى انفجارات استهدفت مقار أمنية فى محافظة إدلب فى شمال غرب سوريا ، متهمة النظام السورى بالوقوف وراءها.

وفاة “بن صهيون” والد نتانياهو وأستاذه فى السامية عن عمر 102 عام THANK GOD THE BASTARD DIED

” I HAVE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW UTTERLY DISGUSTING I FIND THIS FILTHY OLD MAN-AND HIS EQUAILLY FILTHY SON.”

Mary Shepard

رئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلى بنيامين نتانياهو

القدس – رويترز

ذكر بيان رسمى أن والد رئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلى، بنيامين نتانياهو، توفى اليوم الاثنين عن عمر ناهز 102 عام.

ويعتقد أنه كان له تأثير كبير على سياسات نتانياهو اليمينية. وكان بن صهيون نتانياهو أستاذا معروفا للتاريخ اليهودى وخبيرا بشأن معاداة السامية ومؤيدا للمنظر المتشدد الراحل زئيف جابوتنسكى.

وقال ريئوفين ريفلين، رئيس الكنيست لراديو إسرائيل، “بيبى (نتانياهو) تعلم الصهيونية الخالصة من رجل كان مقربا جدا لجابوتنسكى”.

وأضاف “تعلم فى بيت ينظر للصهيونية باعتبارها صهيونية لا تقبل الحلول الوسط، غير أن الواقعية السياسية لبيبى كانت أكثر تطورا بكثير”.

وفى احتفال بمناسبة بلوغ عمر والد نتانياهو 100 عام نقل عن رئيس الوزراء قوله لأبيه، “تعلمت منك أن أنظر للمستقبل”.

وفى كلمة له فى ذات المناسبة، حذر بن صهيون من مخاطر إيران فى إطار استمرار برنامجها النووى الذى يرى كثيرون فى الغرب أنها تسعى من خلاله لامتلاك قنبلة نووية.

وقال على إسرائيل أن تكون جاهزة لضرب إيران حين تسنح “فرصة معقولة لنجاح ذلك“.
