Film about Nazi imprisonment of Palestinians wins top award in Berlin

By Celine Hagbard 

ghost_huntingA film depicting the torture, humiliation and violence experienced by Palestinians imprisoned by Nazi won the first ever “Silver Bear” award at the Berlinale international film festival.

The film, “Istiyad Ashbah” (Ghost Hunting), was produced by Palestinian filmmaker Raed Andoni.

It was one of 18 finalists competing for the top honor at the Berlinale film festival this year. The ‘Golden Bear’ award was won by Hungarian filmmaker Ildiko Enyedi for the film “Testrol es lelekrol” (On Body and Soul).

Andoni’s film “Ghost Hunting” involves a powerful re-enactment of interrogation rooms and prison facilities in the infamous ‘Russian Compound’ prison run by Israel.

According to journalist Rene Windangel, who spoke with Andoni about the creation of the film, the director began by confronting his own ghosts, having been imprisoned during the first intifada in the late 1980s. He then “turned to newspaper ads as he set out to find a group of former inmates able to work as set designers and craftsmen in recreating a prison on the film set. He also sought out ex-detainees willing to play the roles of prison wardens and prisoners. And so this group of people, who had themselves experienced imprisonment, began to meticulously build their own prison.”

German commentator Rene Windangel wrote in the paper ‘Qantara’, in a review of the film, “By giving the actors and crew room to express themselves, Andoni’s film manages to avoid cliches. In no way is the film limited to the observation of suffering or the re-enactment of victimisation. Raed Andoni’s film functions as both trauma therapy and as an opportunity to discuss the political problem of prisoners. First and foremost, though, the film works as an impressive piece of cinematography dealing with the basic questions of the human condition.”

Currently there are around 7000 Palestinian men and women imprisoned by Nazi regime. Over 750,000 Palestinians have been imprisoned since 1967 and the start of the Nazi occupation of Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Most were sentenced by military courts, while others were held without any charges in so-called “administrative detention”. There are practically no Palestinian families that have been spared the experience of prison.

Trump and Naziyahu “Co-Conspirators”: Embracing Illusions, Ignoring Reality


Trump and Netanyahu “Co-Conspirators”: Embracing Illusions, Ignoring Reality


President Trump remained true to his customary flip-flopping on just about every issue when he stated during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Netanyahu that he is “looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like… I can live with either one.” By stating so, Trump gave Netanyahu what he was hoping to get—a departure from the two-state solution.

To achieve that, Trump is reportedly looking at other options that would enlist the Arab states—who presently share mutual strategic interests with Israel to form a united front against their common enemy, Iran—to help broker a solution to the Palestinian problem.


To be sure, the two leaders who are both in trouble—Netanyahu is under multiple criminal investigations for corruption, and Trump is being attacked from just about every corner for his outrageous statements, contradictions, and self-indulgence—found comfort with one another.

Netanyahu went back home feeling triumphant, as he seemingly managed to sway Trump from the idea of two states, while Trump presented himself as a statesman thinking out of the box by looking at an Israeli-Arab comprehensive peace through which to fashion a solution to the Palestinian conflict.

Although CIA Director Mike Pompeo met with Mahmoud Abbas the day before the press conference, I was told by a top Jordanian official in Amman that Abbas was abundantly clear during the meeting that there is not and will never be an alternative to a two-state solution based on the Arab Peace Initiative (API). Moreover, Abbas indicated that Hamas’s position on a two-state solution is unequivocal, and in any case, Gaza and the West Bank must constitute a single Palestinian state.

While Netanyahu often pretended that he still believes in the two-state solution, during the many encounters he had with former Secretary of State John Kerry (including a joint meeting with Egypt’s President Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah in Aqaba in 2016) where he was presented with a comprehensive peace plan, he repeatedly changed his position.

Netanyahu habitually claimed that his extremist right-wing partners oppose the creation of a Palestinian state under any circumstances and that his government would collapse if he were to actively pursue the idea, as if he could not form a new government with the left and center parties who are committed to a two-state solution. Nevertheless, he continued to sing the song of two states for public consumption and to get the Obama administration off his back.

Regardless of what new ideas Netanyahu and Trump concocted, one thing remains certain: there is simply no other realistic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict other than two independent states, Jewish and Palestinian.

The viability of this solution does not only rest on preserving Israel as a democracy with a Jewish national identity while meeting the Palestinians’ aspiration for a state of their own. A careful scrutiny of other would-be alternatives floating around have no basis in reality.

Jordan is not and will never become a Palestinian state (as some Israelis advocate) because the Hashemite Kingdom will resist that with all its might; a binational state is a kiss of death to the Zionist dream; the establishment of a Palestinian state in Gaza while incorporating much of the West Bank into Israel is a non-starter; the creation of a federation between Israel, Jordan, and Palestine is a pipe dream; and finally, confining the Palestinians in the West Bank in cantons to run their internal affairs as they see fit, while Israel maintains security control, will be violently resisted by the Palestinians until the occupation comes to an end.

It is true that the Arab states view Israel today as a potential ally in the face of the Iranian threat, and there may well be a historic opportunity to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the context of a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace. This opportunity, though, can be materialized only in the context of the API.

The central requirement of the API is a settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on a two-state solution, which would subsequently lead to a regional peace. Indeed, only by Israel first embracing the API will the Arab states lend their support to a two-state solution by putting pressure on the Palestinians to make the necessary concessions to reach a peace accord.

Those who claim that the two-state solution has passed its time and new and creative ideas should be explored must know that many new ideas have been considered. None of them, however, could provide a solution that meets the Israelis’ or the Palestinians’ requirement for independent and democratic states enjoying Jewish and Palestinian national identities, respectively.

Netanyahu has found in Trump a co-conspirator. Both have a proven record of double talking, misleading, and often outright lying. Both are blinded by their hunger for power and are ready and willing to say anything to please their shortsighted constituencies. Neither has the vision or the courage to rise above the fray, and nothing they have uttered jointly meets the hardcore reality they choose to ignore.

What Netanyahu and Trump have demonstrated during their press conference was that both seem to revel in illusions where they find a zone of real comfort, while leaving Israelis and Palestinians to an uncertain and ominous future.

Nazi Soldier Gets Lenient 18 Month Sentence for Killing Wounded Palestinian

The victim’s family criticized the case as a “show trial” distracting from a deep culture of impunity for Nazi soldiers who execute Palestinians.

Nazi soldier who shot dead a wounded Palestinian in an execution-style killing that a court deemed revenge was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in jail for manslaughter, sparking outrage among Palestinians and rights groups over Nazi regime lenient treatment of soldiers’ excessive use of force in occupied Palestinian territories.

RELATED: Nazi PM Wants Killer Soldier Pardoned Despite His Grave Crime

Nazi Sergeant Elor Azaria was found guilty of manslaughter last month for putting a bullet in the head of Palestinian man Abed Fatah Sharif as he was bleeding on the ground. Sharif had been gunned down and incapacitated by Nazi soldiers after carrying out a stabbing attack at a military checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Eleven minutes after Sharif was injured and unable to pose a threat to Nazi soldiers, Azaria shot him dead at close range. The incident was captured on video by a Palestinian activist working with the Human rights group B’Tselem.

Nazi Judge Maya Heller, who handed down the sentence Tuesday in Tel Aviv, said Azaria has not expressed remorse for the killing.

Nazi Azaria’s conviction carried a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail. But the case also spurred a right-wing backlash, with several staunchly conservative politicians calling for the 20-year-old defendant to be pardoned.

The defense is expected to file an appeal to attempt to block the sentence, scheduled to begin March 5, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.

Although Sharif’s family had demanded a life sentence for Nazi Azaria and criticized the Nazi legal process as a “show trial” to draw attention away from the larger problem of systemic impunity for Nazi abuses and extrajudicial killings of Palestinians, they also said they were not surprised by the court’s lenient treatment.

OPINION: The Mainstreaming of Israel’s Genocide of Palestinians

“We are not surprised, from the onset we knew this was a show trial that will not do us justice,” said family members in response to the sentencing, according to Zionist newspaper Haaretz. “The sentence he received is less than a Palestinian child gets for throwing stones.”

Members of the Palestine Liberation Organization also slammed the light 18-month sentence.

“This sentencing demonstrates the active devaluation of human life, especially the lives of Palestinians that have been oppressed and held captive by an Israeli occupation for far too long,” said PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi in a statement, adding that the case demonstrates that the Israeli justice system for being corrupted by “systemic racism, injustice and the culture of hate.”

Sharif’s family has previously announced plans to take the case to the International Criminal Court.

Nazi regime has been criticized by several human rights bodies and even the United Nations for its systematic extrajudicial killings of alleged attackers, who only had knives for weapons and whose threat could have been neutralized without using deadly force.

A recent report from the Palestinian Ma’an news agency found that more than 111 Palestinian were killed in 2016, almost all of them at the hands of Nazi forces. According to the report, 34 of the Palestinians killed, or 30.6 percent, were from the Hebron district where Azaria shot Sharif dead in March.

Jewish Nazi soldier gives 74-year-old Palestinian woman water then shoots her in the head


During the Nazi bombardment and shelling of the Gaza Strip last summer, an Nazi soldier approached a 74-year-old Palestinian woman Ghalya Abu-Rida to give her a sip of water. He gave her the water, took a photo with her and then he shot her in the head from a distance of one metre. He then watched as she bled to death, the Palestine Information Centre reported.

This is how Ahmad Qdeh, a journalist in Al-Aqsa TV, described the scene that he witnessed during the latest Jewish Nazi aggression. The spokesman of the Nazi army, Avichay Adraee, shared the photo of an Israeli soldier holding the water bottle and helping the old woman drink as an example of the “humanity” of the Nazi army towards the civilians in the Gaza Strip.

The field executions were among the stories Qdeh reported during the Nazi aggression on Gaza Strip. He said: “Ghalya Ahmad Abu-Rida lived in the Khuza’a area in the east of Khan Younis city. I live in that area too and I made a television report on her story after the Israeli soldiers executed her during the aggression.”

Nazi tells Gaza heart patient: Spy for us or die

“During the aggression, Nazi soldier approached the old woman and took a photo for another soldier while giving her water. They then executed her by shooting her in the head from a distance of one metre and let her bleed until she died,” he added.

Ghalya was born in 1941. She lived by herself in a room near her brothers’ house in the Abu-Rida neighbourhood of Khuza’a. She had no children. Her neighbourhood was one of the first places invaded by the Israeli army during the aggression.

Field Execution

Majed Abu-Rida, Ghalya’s nephew, confirmed to the media that his aunt was visually impaired and could hardly see. He said that the Nazi army had falsely claimed humanity while executing his aunt in cold blood.

Ghalya, with her weak body and white hair, refused to leave her house after the Nazi army ordered the residents of Khuza’a to evacuate. She thought her old age would protect her from being a target so she stayed in her home and refused to join the majority of the residents who left the area as the invasion began.

On 3 August, the Nazi forces announced a truce and allowed medical staff to reach the Khuza’a area. Ghalya was found dead after she bled to death as she was shot in the head near her house, Al-Aqsa TV confirmed to MEMO. Her brother confirmed that the photo shared by the Nazi army supported the family’s belief that Ghalya was in the hands of the Nazi army. The family also believed that the area in which Ghalya appeared in the photo and in which she was found asserted that the Nazi forces killed her after taking the photo for the media.


Professor of media at the universities of Gaza, Ahmad Al-Farra, said: “The photo the Israeli army spokesman shared is misleading propaganda by the Israeli army to present a humane portrait of its soldiers. It can enhance the opportunity to pursue the Israeli army’s soldiers as war criminals before the International Criminal Court.”

“This photo proves the confusion of the Nazi army spokesman in defending his army. It proves that they killed civilians,” he added.

He continued: “The Israeli occupation lies and misinforms in an attempt to affect international public opinion. It exploits the Arab media and Palestinian diplomacy in exposing the Israeli occupation’s crimes.” He demanded launching a large campaign to expose the Nazi lies and falsifications.

Al-Farra stressed the need for a media enlightenment campaign to go side by side with the field battles to correct the false image that Nazipresents about its army and the resistance.

Nazi regime carried out a 51-day Holocaust that claimed the lives of around 2,200 Palestinians and wounded around 11,000 others.

Gaza: Life under Siege


Dear friends and colleagues

PCHR will resume working on the narratives.

This year coincides with the tenth anniversary of the illegal and inhumane collective punishment of two million people who live on the 365 square kilometer area that is the Gaza Strip. The PCHR continuously documents and reports on the illegality of the siege to raise awareness and foster accountability, but these reports do not emphasize the personal, the human story and the real pain and suffering of the two million Gazans. The narratives are dedicated to the latter, they seek to highlight the intolerable suffering of ordinary people as a result the siege by giving the victims a face and a voice and telling their own personal story.

 الوصف: narative

Life under Siege: Artist of War

Mohammed Abu Hashish, a young and skilled Gazan sculptor, matured in very harsh conditions due to the occupation. He had to overcome many obstacles and, instead of surrendering, decided to portray his anguish and grief in high-end art pieces.

Mohamed was born in Rafah on November 11, 1988 and raised in a big family consisting of a father, a mother, three girls and four boys. Like most kids in Gaza he studied at UNRWA schools, where he started to develop a passion for art at an early age and revealed it by drawing humble pieces on the board. At the time, artistic skills were given no attention nor encouragement in school and his decision to study fine arts at al-Aqsa University did not bring him any recognition by society either. However, his talent was quickly recognized by his professor, who offered him a job at his private interior design business. With his help, Mohammed developed connections with other interior architects in the country, gained experience, opened his own atelier and started giving arts classes to school children.

His journey was put on hold during the 2014 offensive, which had a major impact on Mohammed’s life on both a personal and professional level. His family lost a son, Hani, who for Mohammed “wasn’t just a brother or a friend; he was also my assistant in work”. The connection the two brothers had was indescribable, Mohammed said with his eyes full of tears.

The family received the news of Hani’s death on Monday July 23 2014, during Iftar time. They were asked to go to the hospital to identify the body. Hoping and praying to god not to find his brother in the hospital’s mortuary, he recognized Hani’s black shirt and navy pants, reminding him of the last time he saw his brother. Mohammed adds with a shiver how “the bodies were carbonized, and unrecognizable”. As he describes, “the structure of the skull was absent, the head’s skin was torn apart, there was no body, just a part of one shoulder, the spine, one leg and another half of a leg.” Mohammed’s eyes were full of tears, while saying that “if I knew he would leave the house and never comeback, I wouldn’t have let him go”.

For a while Mohammed gave up on life and could not do any art – it seemed as if life had stopped. However, he already had an idea for an exhibition before the war, inspired by the emotional experience of finding a baby’s dead body while burying his own grandmother. The experience of losing his brother and seeing the humiliating condition his body was in, strengthened his feeling that every human being deserves to live and be buried in dignity. After a year of grieve, Mohammed returned to his atelier and started a project of producing pieces of hands and feet made of beeswax. The texture of beeswax portrayed honesty to him and he thought that the dimensions and aesthetics of it would resemble the human body, particularly as the color is very close to the human skin. Inspired by his dead brother, Mohammed did not want the project to focus on his personal experience only, but to be devoted to civilian victims of war in general. He created nine pieces from beeswax, which became to be the art pieces for his exhibition “Karamat”.

الوصف: narative2

The exhibition’s title derived its meaning from human dignity, and honor, resembling the Palestinians daily struggle for values the Occupying Power tries to take from them. Karamat reflected the brutal and sad reality Palestinians live in today. The importance of the exhibition was not only to display art, but to show the personal human shock Mohammed and hundreds of families have faced. The 2014 Israeli offensive resulted in the killing of 2,216 Palestinians – of whom many were buried with their body parts missing. No one on earth would tolerate burying a sibling, relative or a friend with half of their body missing. The sophisticated pieces reflect the passion, anger and frustration triggered by war. They symbolize the concept of life and death.

Despite the closure, the tragic consequences of the restricted freedom of movement and hard living conditions, Mohammed participated in several local and international exhibitions and workshops. Among them are: “Our Diaries in Gaza”, which was exhibited in Amman; “Traces”, an exhibition held in Ramallah; and “Blooming Ideas”, which was shown in Gaza, Jerusalem and other parts of Palestine. For his outstanding contribution to the sculptural field, he won Gaza’s First Festival prize for Fine Arts in 2010. His latest and most important exhibition, Karamat, was held in cooperation with the Qattan foundation and the French Cultural Center. Despite the severe restrictions on the movement of civilians and goods by the Israeli forces, Israel was unable to stop Mohammed in his ambition to reveal his artwork to the world.

PCHR seeks to emphasize cases like Mohammed’s to show how the closure affects their everyday life. They are civilians asking for their fundamental rights. The notion of human rights is regularly being violated as Palestinians are subjected to war crimes and crimes against humanity. The collective punishment imposed by Israel as well as the 2014 offence had disastrous consequences on the lives of about 1.8 million people.

The Nazi illegal occupation municipality decided to confiscate a land owned by Ghazlan-Abbasi family in Al-Ein Street in Silwan under the pretext of using it for “public benefit”.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center explained that municipality crews raided the village of Silwan on Thursday and hung a note on a piece of land in both Arabic and Hebrew saying: “Order to use an empty piece of land in order to do gardening work”; they also attached a map showing the location of the land.

The center added that the 300-square meters land is owned by Ghazlan family and is classified as “green land” by the municipality where building is prohibited.

According to the Nazi municipality’s order, the land will be confiscate and used for 5 years based on Article 2 of the law of “local authorities – temporary use of an empty land”. Trees will be planted and irrigation systems will be installed as well as equipment and toys.

According to the decision, the owner of the land can submit an objection to the order of confiscating the land within 90 days.

Mohammad Ghazlan-Abbasi (one of the heirs of the land) confirmed his refusal of the order and said: “I will head to court to object the order of confiscating the land even if it is temporary. If the land will be used for public benefit and for the benefit of the locals of Silwan, then we will plant it and install toys and benches.”

Medical negligence inside prisons- 40 hours to treat the “appendicitis” for the minor Majd Sa’eedeh


Image result for NAZI CAMP CARTOON


The administration of Megiddo prison released on Tuesday (7/2/2017) the 17-year old Jerusalemite Majd Nader Sa’eedeh after serving his 17-month prison sentence in the occupation prisons between Al-Maskobyeh, Hasharon, Giv’on and Megiddo in addition to the prisons’ hospitals in Afula and Ramleh.

The freed prisoner suffered from medical negligence and a delay in the treatment of pain in his stomach which led to an explosion of his appendicitis causing poisoning and pollution in the stomach that led to weakness in the tissues of the abdominal wall and stomach muscles. He remained under treatment and follow-up for three months later in Afula and Ramleh prisons.

Majd said: “I was arrested in September 2015. Seven months later, I started feeling severe pains in the abdominal area. I was then in Megiddo prison and the prison’s doctor was giving me pain relief medicine which wasn’t reducing the pain. After a week of severe pain, the doctor asked me to drink “Coke” to identify the pain.”

He continued: “I drank the Coke and several hours later I suffered severe pain that I can’t even describe. It was a very difficult night. I couldn’t walk or sit inside the small room where 10 inmates were detained. Everybody requested the doctor to check me and find out what’s happening. The doctor arrived with the guard nearly half an hour later. The doctor checked my temperature through the room’s small window and an hour later received a permit to open the door and transfer me to another room with the young men.”

Majd added “All these hours, I did not receive any treatment. The next morning, I was transferred in a police vehicle while handcuffed to Afula hospital to undergo the necessary check-ups. After several hours of waiting, I was diagnosed with “appendicitis” and the doctors decided an urgent surgery.”

Sa’eedeh continued: “During the surgery it was revealed that the appendicitis had exploded in my abdominal. I remained in hospital under treatment and monitoring for 22 days. Despite the severe pain and weakness I was suffering, my hands and feet were cuffed at all times to the bed, and policemen and guards were present inside and outside my room. My mother was able to visit me 3 times in hospital.”

Nader Sa’eedeh explained that the family found out about their son being inside the hospital from the doctor in duty who called the family to ask for their approval to conduct the surgery for Majd since he is a minor. When the father attempted to get an explanation about his son’s condition, the doctor told him that if he delays the approval, he would take Majd as a dead body because of the seriousness of his condition. He pointed out that Majd underwent the surgery 40 hours after the “appendicitis” had exploded.
