Several thousand Palestinian mourners have taken part in the funeral of a teenager shot dead by the Nazi military, which later claimed to have mistaken him for a stone-thrower amid simmering outrage over the crime.

The mourning procession was held Thursday in Beit Ur-Tahta village near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, where the family home of 15-year-old victim Mahmoud Rafat Badran is located.

During the ceremony, Badran’s mother rejected Nazi military claims that the shooting to death of her son had been a mistake, saying the perpetrators must be brought to justice.

“They have to be held accountable. Justice must be carried out,” said Amal Badran, adding that her son had suffered an injustice “like all of the Palestinian people.”

The young victim lost his life on Tuesday when Nazi army opened fire on his car while he was returning from a visit to a water park. Four of his teenage cousins were also wounded in the assault.

The incident sparked outrage among Palestinian public and officials, prompting the Nazi military to launch an investigation into the case.

The army had initially said its troops targeted stone-throwers, but it later revised the account saying Badran and his companions were shot by mistake.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) roundly condemned the shooting, saying Badran had been “murdered” and calling it a “cold-blooded assassination.”

 Rights group B’Tselem also said its research indicated that Nazi “soldiers arbitrarily fired at the car, having no indication that any of its passengers had been involved in stone or Molotov cocktail throwing.”

“This shooting incident is a direct result of military policy which enables, despite the official prohibition in the open-fire regulations, to use deadly fire even in cases where there is no threat to life and even when the soldiers have other, non-lethal, means at their disposal,” the rights body said.

At least 217 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Nazi forces since last October, when a fresh wave of tensions broke out between Tel Aviv’s troops and Palestinian protesters in the occupied West Bank.

In March, Palestinian officials called on the United Nations to launch a probe into the Nazi regime’s extrajudicial killing of Palestinians in the occupied lands.

Saeb Erekat, the PLO secretary general, said at the time that history shows Israeli investigations have failed to “serve justice.”

The request came after an Nazi soldier was caught on camera in March fatally shooting unarmed Palestinian Abed al-Fattah al-Sharif in the head in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron).

PCHR Publishes New Report in May 2016 as Part of the Closure Reports’ Series

NOVANEWS

الوصف: 20 years option logo-01

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) published a new report as part of the series of the monthly “Closure Reports” addressing the latest developments of the state of the Gaza Strip border crossings in May 2016. The report documents the impact of the ongoing Nazi-imposed siege on Palestinian civilians, which affects their economic and social conditions. It also refutes Nazi claims that it has eased the closure of the Gaza Strip for the ninth consecutive year. Furthermore, the report highlights that the continuing Nazi measures aim at the institutionalization of the closure and making the illegal restrictions imposed on the movement of persons and goods acceptable on the international level although they violate the international law, including the international humanitarian and human rights laws.

During the reporting period, Nazi forces allowed the entry of 14,464 truckloads, the majority of which were foodstuffs and consumables; an average of 466 truckloads daily. Despite the number of truckloads allowed to enter the Gaza Strip has increased comparing with April, they are still limited quantities that do not meet the basic needs of the Gaza Strip.  Moreover, the Israeli forces continued to impose tightened restrictions on the exportation of the basic goods and commodities especially materials needed for the infrastructure projects and materials needed for manufacture and production.

Many obstacles were imposed on the entry of imports including the frequent closure of the only commercial crossing in the Gaza Strip, Karm Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom); the crossing was closed for 10 days (32.2% of the total period).

During the last week of May, the Nazi forces allowed the entry of construction materials into the Gaza Strip according to the UN’s Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism after preventing the entry of construction materials for the private sector for 40 days. As a result, hundreds of private under-construction housing projects stopped in addition to other Reconstruction projects carried out by the Palestinian private sector.

Stopping construction works in these projects will aggravate the suffering of civilians who are in desperate need for building their houses and facilities. This will also inflict heavy losses on the private sector’s companies due to stoppage of work and increase the already high unemployment and poverty rates among the workers and their families. In a limited exception, the Nazi authorities allowed the entry of very limited quantities of construction materials for the intentional organizations and Qatari projects.  According to the National Ministry of Economy, the Nazi authorities allowed the entry of 37,520 tons of cement, 5,040 tons of construction steel and 227,600 tons of aggregate (2.5%, 1% and 7.5% of the total construction materials needed for the Gaza Reconstruction.)

Concerning the exports, Nazi forces continued to impose almost-complete ban on the Gaza Strip’s exports to the West Bank, Nazi and abroad with the exception of limited quantities. During the reporting period, 193 truckloads were allowed for exportation to the West Bank; 133 truckloads of which were agricultural products, 3 truckloads of fish, 4 truckloads of furniture, 3 truckloads of clothes, 3 truckloads of scrap and a truckload of stationary. The rate of the Gaza Strip exports for April constitutes 2.9% of the exports before June 2007.

As for the movement of persons, the Gaza Strip population has been denied their right to the freedom of movement and has been suffering due to obstacles imposed on their movement at all border crossings that connect the Strip with the West Bank and ‘Israel’.

Moreover, during the reporting period, Israeli forces imposed severe restrictions on the movement of Gaza population at Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing, the only crossing for the movement of persons to the West Bank, including Jerusalem, and/or ‘Israel’. As a result, 2 million people have been denied their right to the freedom of movement. A limited number of Palestinians were allowed to travel via the crossing: 1,553 patients, 1,403 patient companions.

During the reporting period, Israeli forces, 8,211 traders, 1,431 people with special needs, 761 workers of international humanitarian organizations and 207 persons travelling via al-Karama crossing. It should be noted that these estimations do not emphasize the number of persons allowed to travel which is much less than times of travel. Those who have permits are allowed to travel more than one time a month.

They also allowed1,307 person to visit holy places in the West Bank, 1,114 elderly people to cross Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing and perform prayers in al-Aqsa Mosque and 193 Christian citizens in light of complicated security measures, including delaying their entry into the Gaza Strip for days before allowing them to enter. Furthermore, Nazi forces arrested a patient while crossing the Beit Hanoun “Erez” crossing when he was on his way back along with his mother from “Barzilai”Hospital where he received medical treatment. It should be noted that the patient is still under arrest.

During the reporting period, Rafah International Crossing Point was closed during May for 31 days. This unveiled the reality of the situation in the Gaza Strip under the policy of collective punishment and the Nazi closure imposed over all border crossings, especially Beit Hanoun crossing. The number of Palestinians, who registered for traveling via the crossing and are waiting for their turn to travel, was over 30,000, including 5,000 patients, in addition to thousands of Palestinians who want to travel but did not registered for traveling according to the Ministry of Interior in Gaza.

In the report’s recommendations, PCHR called upon the international community, particularly the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, to immediately intervene to compel Nazi authorities to open the Gaza Strip crossings and put an end to the grave deterioration of humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip.

PHROC Dismayed by Israel’s Election to Chair the General Assembly’s Legal Sixth Committee

NOVANEWS

Image result for NAZI UN MEMBER PHOTO

On 13 June 2016, Israel won a vote to chair the United Nations Legal Affairs

Sixth Committee (hereinafter the Committee), with the support of 109 member

states.[1] The Committee acts as the central space through which legal questions

are brought before the General Assembly. For 2016-2017, the agenda of the

Committee will include measures to eliminate international terrorism, the rule

of law at national and international levels, and responsibility of States for

internationally wrongful acts, amongst others.[2]

The Palestinian Human Rights Organisations Council (PHROC) reminds the

international community of Israel’s countless policies and measures towards

Palestinians which violate international human rights and humanitarian law,

including UN conventions and resolutions. Such flagrant violations of law have

occurred since the establishment of Israel in 1948. While the UN and the

international community at-large continually condemn Israeli crimes such as the

illegal presence and expansion of settlements, the transfer of civilians, and

excessive use of force against Palestinians, including cases which may amount to

extra-judicial killings, no real action has been taken to change the status quo.[3]

PHROC further notes Israel’s continuous attempts to undermine and obstruct the

work of various UN mechanisms, including the Human Rights Council and treaty

bodies, and its failure to permit entry to UN-mandated Special Rapporteurs.

Such actions weaken essential mechanisms that promote and guarantee

international human rights and justice.

Rather than taking stock of Israel’s history and the current state of Palestinian

rights both in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and within the Green Line and

implement sanctions against Israel, member states instead elected Israel’s UN

Ambassador, Danny Danon, as chair of the Committee. Danon is known for his

rightwing views which contradict basic tenets of international law, including the

annexation of Israeli settlements[4] and the immediate deportation of asylum

seekers.[5]

PHROC is dismayed by Member States who voted in favour of Danon’s appointment,

as well as those who abstained. By electing an individual such as Danon to a legal

committee, the international community’s commitment to human rights and international

law is put into question.

Instead of rewarding Israel, States should work to end the prolonged occupation of Palestine

and hold Israel accountable, by means of sanctions, for its breaches of international law.

In light of this, PHROC considers such vote as evidence to the international community’s failure to respect

and abide by norms of international law.

Nazi occupation murders Palestinian children

NOVANEWS
No need to mention how many Palestinian children the Nazi occupation has murdered because the number is beyond counting!

Nazi forces have murdered tens of Palestinian children in Gaza Strip, destroyed their homes, hospitals and schools.

Here are a number of pictures from the Gaza Strip showing how the Nazi occupation deals with the Palestinian children, their homes, hospitals and schools.

If the Nazi occupation speaks about terrorism, it must look at itself and how it slaughtered Palestinians like what is done with cows in a slaughterhouse.

The bitter reality here is that the whole world stands together condemning death of Nazi occupier, while no one dared to condemn murdering Palestinians by the Nazi occupiers.

Around 100 illegal Jewish settlers desecrated on Sunday Al-Aqsa Mosque, provoking anger worshipers in the 3rd holiest place on earth for 2bn Muslims.

As always, the extremist and illegal Nazi Jewish settlers raided Al-Aqsa Mosque from Al-Magharbeh Gate, witnesses said.

During their existence inside the Islamic holy site, the extremist Nazi settlers were heavily escorted by Nazi occupation police, who provoked the feelings of the Muslim worshippers.

Guards of Al-Aqsa Mosque said that there are also large numbers of extremist Nazi Jewish settlers waiting near the different Gates of the Mosque, trying to desecrate it to mark the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.

Meanwhile, the Muslim worshipers inside the Mosque attempted to prevent the settlers’ desecration, but the Nazi police interfered and neutralised them, giving the settlers to wander around the Islamic holy site freely.

At all Gates of the Mosque, the Nazi police put restrictions on the entrance of Muslim worshipers, who travel long distances to perform the prayers during the holy month of Ramadan.

Nazi rabbi asks settlers to poison Palestinian water

NOVANEWS

“The Jews are called human beings, but the non-Jews are not humans. They are beasts.”

– Talmud: Baba mezia, 114b

Inspired by such incitement, Nazi Jewish settlers killed several Palestinians in West Bank

Israeli Jewish Rabbi Shlomo Mlma asked on Sunday Israeli Jewish settlers to poison Palestinian water resources in order to kill them.Inspired by such incitement, Nazi Jewish settlers several times killed Palestinians and destroyed their properties in the occupied West Bank.

Nazi Jewish Rabbi Shlomo Mlma asked on Sunday Nazi Jewish settlers to poison Palestinian water resources in order to kill them.

Mlma, the chairman of the Council of Rabbis in the West Bank Nazi Jewish illegal settlements, asked the Nazi Jewish settlers to do so in order to cleans the Palestinians from the West Bank cities and villages.

According to Zionist anti-occupation organisation “Breaking the Silence,” the rabbi wanted the Nazi Jewish settlers to push the Palestinians to leave their villages and pave the way for Nazi settlers to take over their lands.

Dozens of similar orders were made by Nazi Jewish rabbis that called for killing Palestinians, robbing their lands and farmlands and destroying their property.

International law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as occupied territories and considers all Nazi Jewish settlement building on the land to be illegal.

About 800,000 Nazi Jewish settlers currently live on more than 100 Jewish-only Nazi Jewish settlements built since Nazi occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967.

Inspired by such incitement, Nazi Jewish settlers several times killed Palestinians and destroyed their properties in the occupied West Bank. And that is not Ani-Semite ??.

Nazi military decides that order to attack Palestinian clinic in ‘revenge’ was acceptable

Israeli military decides that order to attack Palestinian clinic in ‘revenge’ was acceptable
By Celine Hagbard

In a precedent-setting decision Tuesday, the Israeli military decided not to press charges against a senior officer who ordered his troops to bombard a hospital in Gaza in 2014 to reportedly “raise their morale” with a “revenge attack” after another officer was killed.

The officer, Lieutenant Colonel Neria Yeshurun, told military investigators that he was mad that he and the soldiers were unable to attend the funeral of an officer who was killed a few days before, so “we decided to fire a volley of shells toward the point from which he lost his life.”

According to the Israeli paper Ha’aretz, Major Amihai Harch, Yeshurun’s commander, said at the time, “The only unusual thing [Yeshurun] did was that he put the incident on top of the eulogy to Dima, the company commander who was killed. That was certainly to raise [morale]. And I say to you on the level of facts — that raised morale and encouraged the soldiers to continue the mission.”

These admissions were made directly to the military investigators in Yeshurun’s case, but were not deemed sufficient to place any charges on the officer.

Although Israeli military policy says that revenge attacks are not allowed, former soldiers have reported that they are common practice in Israeli military units.

The shelling of the clinic was part of a larger attack on the Sheja’eyya neighborhood in eastern Gaza, in which more than 120 Palestinian civilians were killed in a single night during the Israeli invasion of Gaza in 2014. The 50-day long invasion resulted in more than 1400 Palestinians killed, including more than 400 children, and 91 Israelis, mainly soldiers killed during the invasion of Gaza.

The night of killings in Sheja’eyya became known to Palestinians as the Sheja’eyya massacre. Throughout the night, the shelling of the neighborhood was continuous, affecting every home – most of the neighborhood was completely destroyed, and many of those killed were crushed in the rubble of their own homes. Survivors ran through the streets carrying babies and children, desperate to escape the continuous Israeli assault.

The attack took place on July 31st, 2014, just a day after the bombing of a school where families had taken refuge. About the attack on the school, UN Secretary General stated, “I condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. It is outrageous. It is unjustifiable, and it demands accountability and justice. Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children.” Since the time of the attack, there has been no accountability for the soldiers involved, and no charges.

Former Israeli soldier turned whistleblower Eran Efrati published accounts at the time, in August 2014, from soldiers in two different units reporting that their commanding officers had ordered them to carry out attacks against civilians in order to ‘revenge’ for soldiers who had been killed.

Labour Could Be Torn Apart By War Crime Charges For Blair Over Iraq

NOVANEWS
Image result for Blair CARTOON

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has hinted he could call for ex-PM Tony Blair to face war crime charges for his role in the Iraq War, prompting Labour Blairites to threaten resignation.

McDonnell indicated he would base his decision on whether or not to call for criminal charges on the content of the Chilcot report into the legality of the Iraq War, which will be published on July 6.

The shadow chancellor voted against the Iraq War along with a minority of Labour MPs. He said Blair had become an almost Shakespearean “tragic figure” as a result his decision to join the conflict.

Labour MPs faithful to Blair accused McDonnell of trying to “stoke a civil war.”

The Times reports Shadow Justice Secretary and Blair confidante Lord Falconer has threatened to resign if Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn repeats calls for Blair to face prosecution.

When asked on ITV’s Peston on Sunday if the Labour leadership would reiterate such calls, McDonnell said he wanted to “see what comes out of Chilcot.”

Leave aside Tony Blair, the more important thing is learning the lessons of how we got into that mess,” he said.

I didn’t vote for the Iraq War, I didn’t believe what we were being told at the time and the consequences of it — half a million people being killed and the Middle East being in turmoil ever since.

I think Tony Blair’s almost a Shakespearean tragic figure. I have nothing but praise for him in terms of Northern Ireland and the peace process. I just thought it was heroic. If he had stopped there he would have gone down in history as a peacemaker. Then he allows Iraq to happen and I think it’s completely destroyed his reputation.

The long-overdue Chilcot inquiry will finally publish its findings on July 6, two weeks after the EU referendum and two weeks before Parliament goes on its summer recess.

An anonymous source told the Sunday Times Blair and other former government officials are set to face “absolutely brutal” criticism in the report.
