Nazi forces kill two more Palestinians in West Bank

Israeli forces gather in the area where an alleged Palestinian hit-and-run attack was carried out near the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, on November 8, 2015.

Nazi forces gather in the area where an alleged Palestinian hit-and-run attack was carried out near the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, on November 8, 2015.

Nazi forces have shot dead two Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in their latest acts of violence against Palestinians in the occupied territories.

The first shooting occurred on Sunday near a junction south of the city of Nablus, with Nazi forces claiming that the victim had rammed a group of Israelis with a car, Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.

According to Zionist media, three Zionist were injured in the incident, while a fourth was shot and injured in the leg. Zionist public radio has said that two of the wounded are in critical condition.

The Palestinian agency, meanwhile, added that Nazi forces shut two checkpoints south of Nablus following the incident. The checkpoints control one of the main routes that link the northern occupied West Bank to the central and southern districts.

Also on Sunday, Nazi soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian woman after alleging that she carried out a knife attack in the West Bank, Palestinian media reported.

Tensions in the occupied territories have dramatically escalated in recent weeks due to Nazi regime’s imposition of restrictions in August on the entry of Palestinian worshipers to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

According to Palestinian media, nearly 80 Palestinians have so far been killed by Nazi forces since the beginning of October.

In a separate development on Sunday, Nazi soldiers opened fire on and raided a number of homes across the West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron), nabbing several Palestinians.

Palestinians are angry at increasing violence by Nazi Jewish settlers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound and their attacks on Palestinian properties, saying that the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the compound.

Nazi forces kill Palestinian woman, 72, after alleged car attack



Nazi forces shot and killed an elderly Palestinian woman after an alleged vehicle attack in Halhul, north of Hebron on Friday.

A spokesperson at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem told Ma’an that the woman, aged 72, was dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Nazi media reported that the woman attempted to run over Nazi soldiers in Halhul and was shot and seriously wounded by RACIST Nazi forces.

The victim was identified as Tharwat al-Sharawi, 72. Her husband, Fouad, was killed by Nazi forces during the 1st Intifada 1987.

Two Palestinian youths who were standing at a gas station nearby were injured as Nazi gunfire shattered the car’s windows.

Both youths were taken to the al-Ahli hospital in Hebron to treat their injuries, which were described as moderate.

Al-Sharawi was the 74th Palestinian to be killed since the beginning of last month, the majority of whom were shot dead by Nazi forces during alleged, attempted, and actual attacks on Nazi military.

On Wednesday, Ibrahim Skafi, 22, was also shot dead by Nazi forces in Halhul after a vehicular attack that left a 20-year-old border policeman seriously injured.

The town of Halhul, north of Hebron city, was sealed by Nazi forces following the attack.

Recent attacks come as Nazi Gestapo intelligence said earlier this week that a recent lull in violence was unlikely to be long-term, citing high levels of frustration among the Palestinian public.

Zionist Sisi army shoots, kills Palestinian fisherman off Gaza coast




Zionist Sisi military forces shot and killed a Palestinian fisherman off the coast of the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday afternoon, the Ministry of Health in the besieged enclave said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson of the ministry, said Firas Mohammad Miqdad, 18, from Rafah was shot in the abdomen by Zionist Sisi forces while at sea and died from his injuries.

It is unclear why Egyptian forces opened fire.

In May, Zionist Sisi naval forces opened fire at a Palestinian fishing boat off the coast of the southern Gaza Strip, injuring a fisherman from Rafah.

Zionist Sisi regime upholds an Nazi military blockade on Gaza, keeping borders largely closed and limiting imports, exports, and the freedom of movement of its residents.

The threat from Zionist Sisi forces comes as Palestinian fishermen already face daily risks in order to make a living, including routine harassment from Nazi naval forces, confiscation of boats and materials, detention, and potentially death.

Nazi forces reportedly fired towards Palestinian fishing boats on a daily basis last week, according to documentation by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.

Crimes against Humanity: Arrested Palestinian Children Imprisoned, Tortured

Global Research
palestinian child israeli soldier

Longstanding Israeli policy brutalizes Palestinian children solely for political reasons.  

Palestinian Detainees Committee head Issa Qaraqe reported shocking information. In October, Israeli soldiers and police kidnapped over 800 Palestinian children, some too young to understand what happened or why – subjecting them to severe torture and abuse.

“This is a systematic Israeli policy targeting the children, the future of Palestine,” Qaraqe explained. “The large number of abductions in (a single month) shows a deliberate policy, and a serious level of military escalation.”

A large number of abducted children have been assaulted and beaten by the soldiers. They have also been tortured by the Israeli interrogators and jailers.

Brutal measures used include:

  • beatings, punching, kicking and striking children with rifle butts and batons;
  • terrorizing them with vicious dogs;
  • subjecting them to sleep, food and water deprivation;
  • using them as human shields during neighborhood raids;
  • humiliating them and their family members;
  • threatening them with more severe violence;
  • denying wounded children medical care for extended periods;
  • interrogating them brutally with their wounds untreated;
  • forcing them to sign confessions in Hebrew they don’t understand, admitting alleged crimes they didn’t commit;
  • isolating them in solitary confinement without access to counsel or family members; and
  • painfully shackling them to hospital beds when finally permitted treatment.

They’re targeted with live fire, potentially lethal rubber/plastic-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and toxic tear gas. They face prison terms for alleged stone-throwing. Their families face large fines and possible loss of their homes, bulldozed for exclusive development.

Many children are imprisoned administratively – uncharged and untried for indefinite periods, with no chance for appeal.

Qaraqe said Israel turned Palestinian children into targets – 17 murdered in cold blood since October 1, another 495 wounded from live fire and rubber bullets, scores of others beaten and/or harmed by toxic tear gas.

Israel is the world’s only country subjecting young children to military tribunal injustice – guilt by accusation automatic, no right of appeal.

On average, up to 700 Palestinians are tried in military courts annually. October’s total exceeds this number. Since 2000, over 10,000 Palestinian children were lawlessly kidnapped, separated from family and legal counsel, brutalized in captivity.

Imprisonment is hugely hard to handle for anyone, near impossible for young children to cope, denied virtually everything needed to sustain normal life. The experience leaves many scared for life.

Israel is a flagrant human rights abuser, getting away with murder and daily atrocities with impunity. UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said “(a) complete generation has lost hope in peace and a two-state solution…”

In Hebron where he visited, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said 77% of the residents are impoverished.

The Hebron district accounts for around a third of the West Bank’s economy, the Old City now a ghost town. Over 1,800 Palestinian shops closed since the Second Intifada erupted in September 2000.

Movement restrictions alone prevent normal living. Violating draconian rules risks getting lethally shot. Hebron Mayor Kamil Hmeid said 30,000 Palestinian residents face daily violence from 700 heavily protected settlers, living where they don’t belong.

Settlers, soldiers and police aren’t held accountable for crimes committed against Palestinians. Israeli instigated violent clashes occur daily across the Territories. Death, serious injury or arrest haunts an entire population, victimized by state-sponsored terrorism.

Palestine: Nazi Soldiers Kill A Young Palestinian Man In Hebron


Nazi soldiers shot and killed, on Thursday evening, a young Palestinian man, near the illegal Jewish Nazi Gush Etzion settlement block, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron. 76 Palestinians, including 17 children and two women, in the period between October 1 and the evening of November 5, 2015.


Malek Talal Sharif

Nazi fired several live rounds on the Palestinian, identified as Malek Talal Sharif, 25, from Hebron city, before closing the illegal Jewish Nazi Gush Etzion junction and various roads in the area, to all Palestinian traffic.

Sharif previously worked as an anchor for a children’s show with Hebron Radio, and later started working at the Al Juneidi Dairy & Food Products Company in the city.

Nazi army alleges that the slain Palestinian “attempted to stab a settler,” near Gush Etzion.

In addition, Nazi soldiers kidnapped a young man, identified as Ataa’ Abu Ramouz, from Hebron city, after stopping him on a sudden roadblock north of Hebron, and moved him to an unknown destination.

In related news, clashes took place in the Aida refugee camp, north of the West bank city of Bethlehem, after a number of youngsters hurled Molotov cocktails on a section of the Annexation Wall.

Nazi fired several gas bombs, and rubber-coated steel bullets; no were injuries reported.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that the army has killed 76 Palestinians, including 17 children and two women, in the period between October 1 and the evening of November 5, 2015.

It added that at least 2379 Palestinians have been injured with live army fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, in addition to cuts and bruises after being assaulted by soldiers and colonialist settlers, while many suffered burns due to Nazi gas bombs and concussion grenades.

The Ministry stated that 1136 Palestinians were shot with live rounds (743 of them in the West Bank), 877 with rubber-coated steel bullets, 236 suffered fractures and bruises after being assaulted by Nazi soldiers and colonialist Nazi Jewish settlers, and at least 5000 suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation. 

More than twenty Palestinians suffered burns due to Nazi gas bombs and concussion grenades.

393 Palestinians were shot with live Nazi army fire in the Gaza Strip; 110 with rubber-coated steel bullets and dozens suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The number of wounded children in the West Bank is 325; 165 of them with live fire, 108 with rubber-coated steel bullets, 19 were directly shot with gas bombs, in addition to 33 children who were assaulted and beaten by the Nazi soldiers. 

In the Gaza Strip, 170 children were shot and injured, most of them with live Nazi army fire.

Nazi Gestapo steals slain Palestinians’ organs


” It was alleged that the Jews would kidnap a Greek foreigner, fatten him up for a year, and then convey him to a wood, where they slew him, sacrificed his body with the customary ritual, partook of his flesh, and while immolating the Greek swore an oath of hostility to the Greeks. This was told, according to *Apion , to King *Antiochus Epiphanes by an intended Greek victim who had been found in the Jewish Temple being fattened by the Jews for this sacrifice and was saved by the king (Jos., Apion, 2:89–102). Some suspect that stories like this were spread intentionally as propaganda for Antiochus Epiphanes to justify his profanation of the Temple.”

The Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Riyad Mansour said that Jewish Nazi  is harvesting the organs of Palestinians killed during the ongoing Jerusalem Intifada.

Riyad Mansour said in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that the bodies of the Palestinians killed by Nazi forces are “returned with missing corneas and other organs, further confirming past reports about organ harvesting by the occupying power.”

“A medical examination conducted on bodies of Palestinians returned after they were killed by the occupying power found that they were missing organs,” Mansour wrote in the letter.

The issue of organ theft by Nazi regime was first brought to the fore in a report published by Sweden’s most highly-circulated daily Aftonbladet in 2009.

The New York Times has also reported in 2014 that “transplant brokers in Israel have pocketed enormous sums of money.” Based on the report “Israelis have played a ‘disproportionate role’ in organ trafficking since 2000.”

According to the latest figures by the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 74 Palestinians were shot and killed at the hands of Nazi forces since the beginning of October.

The bodies of the Palestinian victims are most often held in Nazi custody for long periods of time before they are returned to relatives.

Why did Amnesty say one thing in English and another in Hebrew?

Ali Abunimah

Palestinians mourn over the bodies of three Palestinians who were killed by Israeli troops in the West Bank city of Hebron on 31 October, after their bodies were released by Israeli authorities. Amnesty International says several youths in the city were extrajudicially executed by Israel.

 Shadi HatemAPA images

A week ago, Amnesty International published a report on Israel’s summary executions of Palestinians.

As The Electronic Intifada reported, the human rights group said it had “documented in depth at least four incidents in which Palestinians were deliberately shot dead by Israeli forces when they posed no imminent threat to life, in what appear to have been extrajudicial executions.”

It examined the killings of teenagers Saad al-AtrashDania IrsheidFadi Alloun and Hadil Hashlamoun.

“In some cases,” Amnesty said, “the person shot was left bleeding to death on the ground and was not given prompt medical assistance, in violation of the prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment.”

Amnesty published an Arabic-language release of its report that is faithful to the English version.

Yet the no-holds-barred report was considerably softened for the organizations’s much shorter Hebrew press release (translation below).

“Israeli palate”

At the Hebrew-language news website Local Call, journalist Noam Rotem wrote that the Hebrew version looked like it had been changed “in order to adapt it to the Israeli palate.”

He observed that the Hebrew release sent to journalists by Amnesty’s Israel office “is entirely different from the original press release issued by the organization in English.”

The English version is clear right from the headline about who is responsible for violence: “Israeli forces in occupied Palestinian territories must end pattern of unlawful killings.”

The Hebrew headline is more circumspect: “Lethal force should not be used to eradicate a violent incident.” (The Hebrew version does include the headline that appeared in the English version, but only as a sub-heading.)

The differences go deeper. “The Hebrew version makes significant efforts to stress Palestinian violence,” Rotem observed.

It does speak about “unlawful killings” by Israelis but, unlike the English/Arabic version, omits the term “extrajudicial executions.”

The English/Arabic version also includes several quotes from Philip Luther, director of Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa program.

“There is mounting evidence that, as tensions have risen dramatically, in some cases Israeli forces appear to have ripped up the rulebook and resorted to extreme and unlawful measures,” Luther states. “They seem increasingly prone to using lethal force against anyone they perceive as posing a threat, without ensuring that the threat is real.”

Luther also notes that “Israel’s investigation systems have long served to perpetuate impunity for unlawful killings of Palestinians by Israeli military and police forces,” and he warns of the potential for international justice to take its course.

The Hebrew language version omits these key quotes and includes only one where Luther emphasizes “a wave of recent stabbing attacks by Palestinians against Israeli civilians and military or police forces in Israel and the occupied West Bank.”

Finally, most of the specific cases in the English/Arabic version are absent from the Hebrew release.

For the one case that is discussed – the killing of Yousef al-Atrash on 26 October – the Hebrew version leaves out key details. It acknowledges that al-Atrash was shot as he tried to pull out his ID to show Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint in Hebron, and that an eyewitness “said that the young man did not constitute a life-endangering threat when shot.”

But it omits testimony that after al-Atrash was shot six or seven times, soldiers left him bleeding on the ground without medical care for 40 minutes, and then when an ambulance arrived, delayed it for a further 20 minutes.

The Hebrew version also does not mention that the eyewitness claimed to see soldiers plant a knife in the dying youth’s hand.

Amnesty’s response

“It is normal practice for national sections of Amnesty International to condense press releases issued by the organization’s International Secretariat during translation,” Amnesty’s Philip Luther explained in an email responding to an inquiry from The Electronic Intifada.

He said that the national sections typically only issue one-page press releases “while making the full English-language original version available as well.”

“The intention is always to produce a faithful summary of the original.”

But Luther acknowledged that “in this case, the condensed Hebrew-language summary was not of the quality we would normally expect and we can see how a comparison of the Hebrew-language and English-language versions of the press release in question would provoke questions about discrepancies between the content of the two texts.”

Luther said that unspecified “Action is being taken now to ensure the quality of such translations is always of the right quality in the future.”

He added that “there was no intention to alter the strong messages contained in the English-language original, which was, as always, shared with Israeli media.”

Given how complicit Israeli media are in inciting and covering up violence against Palestinians, Amnesty should be making extra efforts to ensure that its findings are not whitewashed, no matter what the reason.

Amnesty International 28 October 2015 Press Release

Amnesty: lethal force should not be used to eradicate a violent incident

Israeli forces must put an end to the unlawful killing of Palestinian civilians in the occupied Palestinian territories

Israeli forces have carried out unlawful killings of Palestinians in a series of events, using lethal force intentionally with no justification, it transpires from the findings of a study performed by Amnesty International.

The information is based on the findings of research that is still ongoing in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Amnesty International has documented in depth at least four incidents where the Israeli forces intentionally killed Palestinians, despite the fact that there was no life-threatening danger to those forces. Since 1 October, Israeli forces have killed more than 30 Palestinians in the Occupied West Bank and in Israel, after individual Palestinians stabbed Israeli citizens or after Israel suspected there was an intention to perform a stabbing.

“There is recently a pattern of using lethal force by Israeli forces following the wave of stabbing attacks by Palestinians against Israeli civilians, military forces and police forces in the occupied Palestinian territories and in Israel,” said Philp Luther, director of the Middle East and North Africa programs at Amnesty International.

Among documented cases, Israeli forces shot 19-year old Saad Muhammad Yusif al-Atrash in the Old City of Hebron, when he tried to draw out his ID document, as he was asked to do in the Israeli army checkpoint on 26 October. The Israel Police labeled the case as an “attempted stabbing,” but eyewitnesses from a balcony near the site of the incident said that the young man did not constitute a life-endangering threat when he was shot[.]

“Israeli security forces and Israeli civilians have contended with real attacks and threats to their lives in recent weeks,” stated Luther. “However the armed soldiers and the police personnel wear body armor against possible knife attacks – lead to the use of lethal force[.]” [sic]

Amnesty International calls upon the Israeli authorities to conduct independent, unbiased investigations into all the events specified in the report. Intentional killing of Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian territories are serious violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

International human rights defenders arrested and evicted while “Hebron is becoming ghettoized”


The three elderly former guards who served at the Nazi death camp Auschwitz in WW2 where 1.1 million Jews were exterminated


Occupied Palestine – Two international human rights defenders were arrested in Hebron (al-Khalil) yesterday morning, November 3rd, while six others were ordered to leave an apartment in the H2 neighbourhood of Tel Rumeida by threat of arrest.

The German and American nationals were arrested at 7.50am while monitoring checkpoint 56 at the entrance of Shuhada Street, after being seemingly arbitrarily denied access to checkpoint 55 further down the street. They were arrested while peacefully observing the checkpoint on allegations of ‘disturbing soldiers’ and being in a closed military zone after a soldier at the checkpoint made a complaint to officers in a passing police vehicle.

The internationals were denied their legal right to communicate with their embassies, and were only given water to drink at the police station after repeated requests. ‘We were scared about what was going to happen, but we were still so much better off than the Palestinian we heard being beaten by Nazi forces in the police station’ one of the women announced. They were released at 4.30pm, on agreeing to sign conditions barring them from Hebron for one week. Immediately before being released from the police station, the investigating officer actually admitted that there was ‘no evidence’ against them, but they were still being punished for the soldiers allegations.

Several hours later, other members of the team were prevented from passing through Checkpoint 56 which divides Tel Rumeida from the H1 area of Hebron, which is under full Palestinian authority. As of Saturday, 31st of October, when Tel Rumeida was declared a ‘closed military zone’ for 24 hours, both internationals’ and Palestinian movement through the area has been severely restricted. Residents were ordered to register their ID’s or risk being prevented from passing the checkpoints which intersect the entire district.

While official documentation of the zoning of Tel Rumeida has been conspicuously inconsistent recently, the activists were shocked this afternoon when their passports were confiscated and they were confronted with an order to leave the closed military zone which encapsulates their apartment. Nazi forces demanded that they immediately sign an absent legal contract declaring their residency in the area, or they would be forcibly removed and deported.

Checkpoint 55 is frequented by students from several school groups, who pass it on route to and from schools which abut the Tel Rumeida illegal settlement. It was blocked for passage last Sunday in what soldiers described as “new measures against terrorism.” For years now international agencies have been monitoring the impact of the occupation on the schoolchildren of Hebron however this work has been severely restricted in recent weeks, amid mounting tensions in the district.

A volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement, a school teacher from Australia known as Phoebe, stated: “Will they never be satisfied? In the past month, Israeli forces have blatantly disregarded international law. They have performed extrajudicial executions of Palestinians in front of eyewitnesses with complete impunity.” She added: “We have been physically attacked on a daily basis by settlers in front of soldiers and police and then been ordered to leave, by threat of arrest for provoking them by our presence. We have been intimidated, harassed, abused, detained, and now this: arrest for our monitoring of human rights abuses on children and eviction for our presence in a fraught neighbourhood. Our presence is lawful and we believe more essential than ever.”

However, the internationals have stated their greatest concerns remain for the Palestinian residents of Tel Rumeida and the disturbing intensification of both Nazi Jewish settler violence and the physical manifestations of the occupation, including an expansion of infrastructure used to limit movement on the streets. Echoing concerns by local Palestinian residents, a Dutch volunteer stated that such measures have created an alarming sense that, “Hebron is being ghettoized.” He added, “if the international community does not react to this now then the illegal settlement will surely take over all of Tel Rumeida…This is what we are most afraid of.”

The internationals, from Holland, Italy, Britain, Germany, Unites States, Poland, France and Australia have vowed to return to their work of protective presence, monitoring and journalism in the district and consider this to be an appalling reflection on Israel’s supposedly democratic ideals.

Video Captures Nazi Police Beating Unarmed Palestinian, Then Inventing A Scenario To Justify It


Video Captures Israeli Police Beating Unarmed Palestinian, Then Inventing A Scenario To Justify It

The man is one of the over 2,600 Palestinians injured in the ongoing violence in Israel and Palestine that started early last month and shows no sign of abating.

The arrest and subsequent beating og Omar Farouk Obaideya, a teaching assistant in the Physics Department at Birzeit University.

The arrest and subsequent beating og Omar Farouk Obaideya, a teaching assistant in the Physics Department at Birzeit University.

SEATTLE — Israeli police stopped a young Palestinian man on a Jerusalem street on Monday. In a video apparently shot by Israeli Jews at the scene, the police yell at the suspect to drop his pants. The man does not comply, but instead lifts his shirt and turns around to assure them he is not carrying a weapon or wearing a suicide vest. Unsatisfied with this gesture, police continue demanding that he disrobe.

A short standoff ensues as he refuses to remove his pants. Less than a minute passes before police surround the man and rush him. They begin beating him.

Then the video cuts to the victim lying on the ground with blood splattered on the floor and wall around him. An officer is sitting on top of him though he is handcuffed and makes no attempt to move.

The police notice someone is filming the events as they unfold, and they allow the filming to continue. (It’s worth noting that Palestinian journalists working in similar circumstances are assaulted and shot at by Israeli forces. And while the filming appears to be the work of Israelis, the video has been widely uploaded by Palestinians to social media.)

With the man held on the ground, police strip him down to his underwear. Police ask each other if anyone’s found a knife. They search the man’s bag, but don’t find a knife.

The lead officer stands above the victim and under the guise of “reconstructing” the event, clearly manufactures a fictional scenario contradicted by the actual video (translation and captions provided by Israeli activist Ronnie Barkan):

“I’m for reconstructing [the event] …

He ran away to here; resisted [arrest];

We told him ‘raise’ [your hands/shirt] …  

Ran from where?

Opened someone’s … He opened some woman’s head there;

We stopped in front of him;

We asked him to raise his shirt; He refused.

Attempted to assault an officer;


Who saw the attack [on the woman]?


At the end of the video, the Israelis who filmed it begin calling the victim a “son of a bitch” in Arabic. Then they joke, seemingly proud that they filmed the beating of a Palestinian. Laughing derisively, one of them says: “We organized some incident for you, huh?”

The officer who suggests “reconstructing” the event invents details that never happened: The man didn’t run away. He was never asked to raise his hands. He raised his shirt voluntarily. He certainly never assaulted anyone.

According to Palestinian activist Younes Arar, the victim of the police beating is Omar Farouk Obaideya. He is a teaching assistant in the Physics Department at Birzeit University, where he is also pursuing a master’s degree.

From the dialogue, the police appear to be attempting to link Obaideya to an incident in which female Haredi tour guide was hit in the head by a bottle by a Palestinian man earlier in the day.

Yet even if the suspect in the attack is the same man in this video, he is unarmed when confronted by police and never acts in any way that may be construed as threatening or suspicious. And even if he was the perpetrator of the attack earlier in the day, this extrajudicial beating has no place in a democratic society. A democratic society observes the rule of law and justice, not the laws of the street or jungle.

 The Zuckerberg intifada

Israeli leaders have identified a convenient scapegoat for what some are calling a “Third Intifada,” or popular uprising: Mark Zuckerberg. The Israeli lawfare NGO Shurat HaDin is suing Facebook, blaming the social media network for permitting young Palestinians to communicate with each other and coordinate their resistance.

“Suing Facebook, Disconnect from Terror”

“Suing Facebook, Disconnect from Terror”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu even invoked the Facebook CEO’s name in laying blame for the violence:

“What has been going on is due to the combination of the Internet and Islamist extremism,” Netanyahu said. “It has been Osama Bin Laden meets [Facebook founder] Mark Zuckerberg.”

The Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency, is playing its role in this charade by arresting Palestinian youth for their posts to Facebook and treating them as if they’d committed violent crimes.

The latest victim, according to an Israeli human rights activist, is Dareen Tatour, who has been held in jail since Oct. 10. On Monday, she was indicted for “incitement” and “supporting a terrorist organization.” Her incitement consisted of reciting a poem, “Resist, My People, Resist,” as the voice track of a YouTube video which pictures Palestinians burning tires, being harassed by police, waving Palestinian flags, and throwing stones.

The poem that apparently constitutes a criminal act if read aloud includes the following words:

“I refuse the ‘peaceful solution’ [the Oslo process]
I will never lower my flag
I will pull them away from my land
And the future will see it.
Resist O my people resist them
Resist the tyranny of the settler …..
Follow the convoy of martyrs
Tear the shameful agreements 
Of oppression and humiliation.”

Ironically, the Israeli right views the Oslo agreements with equal disdain, yet no Israeli is arrested for expressing such displeasure. According to this double standard, Palestinians who express virtually the same political views as Israelis are criminals and terrorists for doing so.

Tatour also posted a picture of the Israeli Palestinian woman shot and seriously wounded by Israeli police at the Afula bus station last month. It doesn’t matter that Isra’a Abed, the Afula victim, has been cleared by the same Israeli security officials of any criminal intent.

The Zionist version of a moral apartheid

Israel's Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked

Israel’s Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked, who famously stated: “This is a war against two people, not a war on terror, Israel must slaughter all Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”

Israel’s Knesset has been increasingly clamping down on human rights NGOs, who are viewed as collaborating with “foreigners” intent on charging the Israeli military with war crimes. Former foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman has in the past demanded that NGOs receiving funds from foreign foundations be forced to reveal their sources publicly. Right-wing NGOs, which also receive foreign funding, often refuse to disclose their funding sources. Presumably, if this legislation passed some sort of loophole would be offered to groups like NGO Monitor and others which maintain secret donor lists.

Ayelet Shaked, the justice minister,proposed legislation on Sunday which would require any NGO staff member visiting the Knesset to wear a “tag” that identifies them as recipients of foreign funding. It’s part of what Shaked calls a “Transparency Law” that permits Israelis to see the origin of funding for groups which allegedly betray the state.

Writing for AL Monitor, Mazal Mualem calls it “a ‘mark of Cain’ of sorts, a far more appropriate name for [Shaked’s] proposed piece of populist legislation could be the ‘Selection Law,’ a reference to the way Jews were marked to distinguish them from other Europeans during World War II in Nazi camps.”

In the brave new world offered by the Israel’s right-wing government people are either good or bad, friends or enemies, Israelis or Palestinians, Israelis or foreigners. The bad guys are clearly labelled so that there can be no mistaking them for the good guys. This is a Zionist version of moral apartheid.

Shaked’s proposal would be ridiculous if it didn’t rear its ugly head in the context of the enormous level of hate and violence which besets Israel these days.
