Nazi Occupation Forces (NOF) shot on Monday a Palestinian man with hearing and speech impairment at the Qalandiya crossing.

The man, in his 50’s was shot in the leg by Nazi security guards after he approached the vehicle side of the crossing, Zionist media reported, noting that his injuries were mild-moderate.

An initial investigation of the incident found that the man seemingly has a hearing and speech impairment.

Unews news agency posted a video on its Twitter account showing occupation forces standing beside the man who was laying on the ground at the Qalandiya crossing.

Members of the Joint List decried the shooting, calling it an example of the daily violation of the rights of the Palestinians.

“The cruel shooting of a 55-year-old man with a hearing impairment at the Qalandiya crossing is not an unusual incident,” tweeted Joint List MK Sami Abu Shehadeh in response to the incident, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Joint List Chairman Ayman Odeh demanded the “immediate release of the recordings from the security cameras at the Qalandiya checkpoint in which security guards are seen shooting an adult with a hearing impairment, before they disappear into a drawer in which the videos of the murder of Iyad al-Hallak are hidden.”

Odeh was referring to a 32-year-old special-needs student from east Al-Quds (Jerusalem), who was shot earlier by the Nazi occupation Border Police in the Old City on his way to his school for children and adults with disabilities. Hallak’s family says that the Nazi occupation police hid security camera footage of the incident.

Iran to Shift Stance on UAE

Iranian Army Chief Maj. Gen. Mohammad Baqeri

Iran’s highest-ranking military commander unveiled a change in the approach adopted by the Islamic Republic on the United Arab Emirates after its ruling regime struck a deal with the Zionist regime on normalization of ties.

In remarks at a conference held in Tehran on Sunday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri denounced the UAE’s decision to start a friendship with the Nazi regime and warned Abu Dhabi of the consequences it will have to face if Iran’s interests in the Persian Gulf are threatened.

“Definitely, the Iranian nation’s attitude towards this neighboring state (UAE) will change fundamentally, and the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces will also deal with that country with different calculations,” he said, as quoted by Tasnim news agency.

The top commander made it clear that Iran will not tolerate any incident in the Persian Gulf or any threat to its security, whatsoever, and will hold the UAE culpable for the trouble.

Deploring the Abu Dhabi regime for brazen declaration of diplomatic relations with a regime detested by the entire free world, the Iranian general said the Nazi regime is committing atrocities in disregard to the teachings of Judaism.

“It is totally unacceptable for an Arab and Muslim state like the UAE to launch overt political and economic relations with the criminal regime that is killing, imprisoning and displacing Palestinians,” Major General Baqeri added.

Deal with Zionist Entity Treason against Islamic World

Iran’s Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf condemned the United Arab Emirates’ agreement on normalization of ties with the Zionist entity as a brazen treason against Islamic and humanitarian values.

In an address to a Parliament session on Sunday, Qalibaf took a swipe at the Emirati authorities for signing the deal with the criminal Zionist regime.

Denouncing the UAE-Israeli agreement as a blatant treason against humanitarian values, Islamic teachings, the Muslim community, and the cause of Palestine, Qalibaf said the enemies of humanity and betrayers have revealed their true colors.

The entire Islamic ummah (community) considers those striking up a friendship with the Zionist regime as betrayers, criminals and accomplices in all past, present, and future crimes committed by the Nazi regime, the Iranian speaker added, as quoted by Tasnim news agency.

He underscored that the Islamic community and the Palestinian nation’s battle with the Zionist regime will never stop and will gain momentum.

Iranian officials have expressed full support for Palestine after a recent agreement between the Zionist puppets of the UAE and the Nazi regime on the establishment of diplomatic relations.

On Saturday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lashed out at the UAE for striking a deal with the Zionist entity on normalization of ties, warning the UAE about the consequences of allowing the Zionist regime to gain a foothold in the region.

Israeli strike on Gaza
Flames rising after Israeli strike on Gaza strip (Wednesday, August 12, 2020).

Nazi fighter jets, helicopters and tanks attacked a number of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Zionist media quoted Nazi occupation military as saying that a military compound, underground infrastructure and observation posts were targeted during the Nazi strikes.

It added that the strikes were in response to the launching of incendiary balloons into the 1948 occupied Palestine from Gaza over the past several days.

During the Nazi bombing of the Gaza Strip on predawn Wednesday, an Zionist dairy farm was accidentally hit with a missile, Zionist media reported, noting that there were no casualties.

The Nazi military opened an investigation into the incident, according to Zionist Ynet.

Fire services in the occupied territories’ south said the incendiary balloons caused 60 fires on Tuesday alone.

The balloon units in Gaza warned that they would continue the launch of incendiary and explosive balloons on Wednesday in response to the Nazi attacks on the Palestinian territories.

Nazi Jewish settlers today closed one of the main roads in the northern West Bank and attacked Palestinian vehicles, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Nazi Jewish settlement construction in the northern West Bank, said that a group of Nazi Jewish settlers, protected by Nazi soldiers, hurled stones at Palestinian vehicles as they were driving on a road connecting Nablus to Qalqilya, causing damage to some and threatening the life of their occupants.

Nazi Jewish settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by the Nazi army.

“Jewish settler violence should not be analyzed separately from the violence meted out by the Israeli army, but seen within the larger context of the violent Zionist ideology that governs Israeli society entirely,” wrote Palestinian author and editor of The Palestine Chronicle, Ramzy Baroud.

“Settler violence has long since become part of Palestinians’ daily life under occupation,” according to the Human Rights Group B’tselem. “Israeli security forces enable these actions, which result in Palestinian casualties – injuries and fatalities – as well as damage to land and property. In some cases, they even serve as an armed escort, or even join in the attacks”.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Zionist live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

Nazi soldiers Uproot Palestinian Lands

Nazi soldiers started, Thursday, the uprooting and bulldozing of Palestinian lands, east of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, in preparation for paving a new segregated road for the use of illegal colonialist Nazi Jewish settlers, living on confiscated Palestinian lands.

Ehab Ghazala, the Mayor of Kaf al-Lubbad Municipal Council, said the Nazi soldiers started uprooting Palestinian agricultural lands in Ras al-Misyed area, in the areas of Kafr al-Lubbad, Ezbet al-Hafassi, and Thannaba Suburb.

Ghazala added that the planned segregated road extends 10 Kilometers (6.21 Miles) to reach Avnei Hefetz Nazi illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

The Mayor also stated that the lands are around 600 Dunams (148.2 Acres), and are subject to constant violations by the armed Nazi paramilitary illegal colonists who frequently invaded them, uproot them, confiscate equipment in addition to assaulting the Palestinians and forcing out of their lands.

The new planned segregated road would isolate the western area of Kafr al-Lubbad, which is the only path the Palestinians can take when commuting to the Thannaba area and from there to Tulkarem.

Gaza’s solidarity with Lebanon is being expressed in blood

Belgian education ministry website publishes vicious cartoon | The ...

By Eman AbusiduI

I know about pain, and I know when other people are in pain. I have seen it, felt it and lived it many times. Ever since I was born, the Gaza Strip has witnessed Israeli military offensives and incursions. Scenes of death and destruction are the backdrop to my life.

Last Tuesday’s explosion in Beirut was, therefore, a shocking reminder of this. A different place, for sure; and a different reason, but the victims, the destruction and the blood were identical.

Like the Gaza Strip, Lebanon has had more of its share of violence; both have been or are occupied by Israel, with all that it entails. Palestinian and Lebanese mothers alike have seen their children grow into fine young men and women only to have them taken away in an explosive instant. Can there be any greater pain in this life? They too have seen their homes, built painstakingly stone by stone, destroyed before their eyes.

In terms of death and destruction, therefore, Gaza is on a par with Lebanon; it doesn’t have much to learn from it, nor much to offer it. The tiny territory has been besieged by Israel and its allies since 2007 and is one of the most densely-populated places in the world, as well as one of the poorest.

Nevertheless, the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are not only standing in solidarity with the people of Beirut and Lebanon, but they are also sending them much-needed blood for those injured in Tuesday’s blast. Dozens of Palestinians have answered the call for blood donations made by the Palestinian Red Crescent, the Ministry of Health and the Khan Younis Municipality in the south of the Gaza Strip.

“Our blood is probably the most valuable transferable asset that we have,” explained the Mayor of Khan Younis, All Al-Batta, “so we decided to donate for our people in Lebanon with the most important thing we have.”

Moreover, this blood is sent as a reminder of the loyalty that they have shown to us in the past. The people of Lebanon have stood with Palestine and the people of Palestine many, many times.

Due to the Israeli-led blockade, it is unclear whether the blood donations will actually get to Lebanon, the mayor told me. “We have already contacted the International Red Cross but there are some difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic, the closure of the borders and the Israeli occupation, but we are striving to get it there.” 

Al-Batta added that the Palestinians in Gaza are ready to help the victims of the massive explosion in Beirut, despite being deprived of their rights and resources. Despite everything, he pointed out, the people of Gaza have the inner strength and determination to express their solidarity with Lebanon.

After the explosion, a number of countries have responded by sending field hospitals and medical aid to Lebanon; a major appeal for funds has been made, and charities from around the world are working to help as much as they can. Some famous landmarks have been lit up with the Lebanese flag and, in an unusual act of solidarity, the Mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, did the same with the Israeli capital’s City Hall.

Given that Israel has rained death and destruction across Lebanon, including Beirut, over many years, this was unexpected. “Humanity comes before any conflict,” said Huldai “and our hearts are with the Lebanese people following this terrible disaster.”

Where was this “humanity” when Israel invaded Lebanon in 1978, 1982 and 2006? Or when Israel launched massive military offensives against the largely civilian population in Gaza in 2008, 2012 and 2014? More than 2,200 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces during the 2014 offensive, most of them civilians, of whom 551 were children and 299 were women. Around 11,000 more were wounded. Half a million Palestinians were displaced at that time.

Like many other people, I find it hard not to believe that such gestures as that made in Tel Aviv last week are just propaganda, and that Israel has no heart at all, never mind one which is capable of showing compassion and mercy to vulnerable people. The people of Lebanon certainly feel this way and have reacted angrily to Mayor Huldai’s move.

The UN predicted that Gaza would be “unlivable” by 2020, yet the population of this tiny strip of land continues to extend a helping hand to others in need. Today they are in Lebanon; who knows where they will be tomorrow? What doesn’t kill Gaza makes it stronger, more connected and more conscious of others.

“Lebanon has faced severe crises before — its civil war as well as Israeli aggression – but it has always bounced back,” concluded Alaa Al-Batta. “Through donating blood for the people of Lebanon, the message we are sending from Gaza is ‘Keep hope alive’.”

‘Israel’ is too weak to launch a new offensive against Gaza

Israel blocks Qatari aid to Gaza in response to incendiary ...

By Motasem Dalloul

Israeli war jets struck several targets in the north of the Gaza Strip on Sunday. “The strike was carried out in response to the launching of incendiary balloons from Gazan territory into Israel over the course of the day,” claimed the Israeli occupation army.

On Tuesday morning, the occupation forces opened fire on Palestinian areas inside the Gaza Strip. The army claimed that its soldiers opened fire at balloon launchers, from where Palestinians planned to launch explosive balloons towards Israeli settlements near the besieged territory. By Tuesday evening, the Israeli media had reported that at least 60 balloons had been launched from Gaza, setting fire to more than 250 acres across the nominal border.

According to one Israeli security official, “The response of the Israeli army to the launch of explosive balloons could be strong and harsh this time. It could be different to what it was before… The defence establishment discussed the response a couple of hours ago and the decision to respond could be taken soon.”

This followed similar threats made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “I want to say to all of Iran’s forces, including in Gaza, there will be a very heavy price for the balloon terror. We will not suffer this, we will act and exact a heavy price. We have done it in the past and we will do it now.”

Netanyahu echoed similar threats made by Defence Minister Benny Gantz. “In the south, Hamas is allowing the continued launching of arson and explosive-carrying balloons into Israel. We are not prepared to accept that and we closed the Kerem Shalom crossing as a result. They would do well to stop disturbing the security and quiet in Israel. If that doesn’t happen, we will need to respond, and forcefully.”

The balloons are meant to be a deterrent to Israel, and a reminder that it should commit to the understandings about easing its siege imposed on the Gaza Strip. Given such rhetoric from the Israeli establishment, though, I spoke to senior Israeli and Palestinian observers to see what they think; the conclusion is that Israel is too weak to carry out its threats.

“Of course, Israel will react to the explosive balloons fired from Gaza into Israel,” said Yossi Melman, an Israeli writer and former intelligence and strategic affairs correspondent for Haaretz. “However, any Israeli reaction will not be so strong in order not to end up in a massive offensive like what happened in 2014.” Israel is not ready for such an offensive, explained Melman, because this is not a strategic reason for war. “Israel is suffering from political, health and economic crises,” he added.

Right-wing Israeli journalist Baruch Yedid, who is close to decision makers in Tel Aviv, ruled out a “deterrent” attack in response to the balloons. He cited “political reasons” and pointed out that Israel might be heading for a fourth General Election in just over two years.

There is also the US presidential election to consider. The pro-Israel lobby in Washington will not want to see prime-time news channels broadcasting images of death and destruction in Gaza’s residential areas in the run up to November’s poll. Importantly, nor will Donald Trump, the leader of the most pro-Israel US administration in history.

Israel is very busy on the northern front with Lebanon at the moment, said Adnan Abu Amer, a Palestinian journalist and expert on Israeli affairs. “It is highly unstable there.” There is a backlog of crises, so Netanyahu’s threats are not serious, he insisted. “Only the threats made by Gantz are serious, but he is alone.” Abu Amer cited remarks made by senior Israeli security officials ruling out a new war against the Palestinians in Gaza.

Instead, claimed both Yedid and Melman, Israel will turn to Qatar, Egypt and the UN to mediate with Hamas on the balloon issue. “Israel is working hard to avoid going to war in Gaza,” the former told me. Melman, however, warned that, “If the situation gets out of control, Israel might start a war, but this is a very remote possibility.”

Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that Jewish Nazi settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar set alight a bulldozer belonging to local citizens in the village and spray-painted graffiti in the same area.

Daghlas also said that about 20 settlers attacked the house of Abdul-Basset Ahmed on the outskirts of the same village, adding that local residents confronted the settlers and clashed with them.

Several citizens suffered from tear gas as Nazi soldiers intervened to protect the Nazi settlers.

Palestinians are deprived of a political voice, and their leaders do nothing about it

Palestinian refugees are at the core of Palestinian narratives. The international community has, however, classified Palestinian refugees as a humanitarian issue. In between these diverging depictions, the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) seeks to grapple with both strands to push for “international protection” within the context of the coronavirus pandemic.

With international aid for Palestinian refugees barely enough for basic necessities and thus contributing to their increased vulnerability, the PLO has requested the UN to provide protection and financial aid for them. According to reports, “Such protection and support must continue until a solution for the issue of the refugees is found based on Resolution 194.”

The political exploitation of Palestinian refugees knows no limits. UN Resolution 194, which has been accepted blindly as the framework upon which a solution should be found, is rarely criticised for shifting accountability upon the colonised population, rather than the settler-colonial framework which usurps Palestinian territory and made Palestinians refugees in the first place. Resolution 194 is part of the international narrative on Palestine and has little to do with safeguarding the rights of refugees because it fails to call for the decolonisation of their land.

Palestinian refugees are not allowed a political platform at an international level. Hence the constant “speaking for” refugees within a humanitarian context that in turn justifies the international community’s role in deciding how the promotion of Palestinian refugees should be carried out in order to highlight the humanitarian paradigm. Humanitarian aid is about the international community first and foremost. The recipients are forced to play a part in this charade, which ignores Israel’s colonisation of Palestine as the cause of the whole issue.

Furthermore, the PLO’s request for aid promotes the international narrative of delays. Aid must be given until a solution is found, the PLO insists, yet how much emphasis is placed upon finding and implementing that solution? The international community and the Palestinian leadership have turned Palestinian refugees into accessories for political convenience. Indeed, there is hardly any mention of Palestinian refugees unless a humanitarian context is evoked, or if the UN inaugurates a project to exploit the illusion of “Palestinian autonomy”, which is non-existent in a humanitarian context rigged with deficiencies and political allegiances to the Zionist colonial project.

So I have a suggestion: how about remembering Palestinian refugees as the most prominent victims of Zionist colonisation; as people who have been deprived of their rights by the international community which allows that colonisation to continue unabated? Decades have passed since the UN Relief and Works Agency was mandated to provide for Palestinian refugees and bound to a “neutral” narrative, despite being funded by countries that prioritise their diplomatic and economic ties to Israel over and above human rights and justice. Palestinian autonomy for Palestinians, including refugees, is still a non-existent concept, because the international community has monopolised the politicisation of humanitarian aid without allowing Palestinians to participate in the process.

Each time the legitimate Palestinian right of return is tied to requests for humanitarian aid, the “right” is whittled down even further. Such rhetoric falsely equates Palestinians with a passive stance, one that the Palestinian Authority is fond of describing as “waiting”. Such projections are harmful to Palestinians; they are not waiting, they have been deprived of a political voice, and their leadership is doing nothing to counter this international violation of human rights.
