Teen killed by Zi-Gistapo sniper posed ‘no threat’ to soldiers

Zio-Nazi authorities have provided no evidence that a Palestinian teenager fatally shot in the back in December by Zio-Nazi forces posed “any threat to life that would justify such a killing,” Human Rights Watch said Sunday.

Wajih Wajdi al-Ramahi, 15, was shot with live bullets in the back by Zio-Nazi sniper in front of his school on Dec. 7 in al-Jalazun refugee camp near Ramallah.

Locals told Ma’an that the area where al-Ramahi was shot had no clashes or any kind of rock-throwing incidents that might have provoked the killing.

HRW said that some Palestinian youths had been throwing stones at Zio-Nazi soldiers, but they were over 200 meters away and not at risk of being hit.

"Twice this year, Israeli soldiers hiding near schools, apparently to make arrests, have killed children who posed no apparent threat," said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch.
"If the past is any guide, these boys’ families can look forward to a prolonged, opaque, and fruitless process that does not hold perpetrators to account or deliver justice."

In January 2013, Zio-Nazi forces shot and killed a Palestinian teenager during clashes in Budrus near Ramallah.

Samir Ahmad Abdul-Rahim, 17, sustained four bullet wounds to his head, chest and leg and died shortly after arriving at the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.

Zio-Nazi military has said it is investigating both incidents, but Zio-Nazi has indicted only 16 security officials for unlawfully killing Palestinians since 2000, with only six actually being convicted.

The longest jail sentence imposed was seven months, according to rights group Yesh Din.

Zio-Nazi killed 27 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in 2013, making it the deadliest year for Palestinian fatalities since 2008.

By contrast, in 2012 Zio-Nazi security forces killed eight Palestinians in the West Bank and 246 in the Gaza Strip, including at least 167 in its November war on the coastal territory.

Children killed by I$rahelli soldiers “hiding” near schools, says Human Rights Watch

At least twice in 2013, Israeli occupation forces ambushed, shot and killed Palestinian children near schools in the occupied West Bank for no apparent reason, Human Rights Watch (HRW) says in a 5 January release.

“No evidence has been presented by the Israeli authorities that a 15-year-old boy fatally shot in the back by Israeli soldiers near his school on 9 December 2013 posed any threat to life that would justify such a killing,” HRW states.

The boy, Wajih al-Ramahi, was killed in Jalazone refugee camp near Ramallah.

It was “inconclusive” whether al-Ramahi “had joined Palestinian youths nearby who were throwing stones toward the soldiers, but the soldiers were approximately 200 meters away and not at any risk of being hit by stones,” HRW says, based on the testimonies it collected.

Israel’s heavily armed occupation forces frequently justify firing on Palestinians as a reaction to stone-throwing.

“Hiding near schools”

The killing of al-Ramahi was the second time in 2013 that “Israeli soldiers hiding near schools, apparently to make arrests, have killed children who posed no apparent threat,” said Joe Stork, HRW’s deputy Middle East and North Africa director.

In January 2013, Israeli occupation forces who had “concealed themselves next to a military fence not far from the boys’ school in the village of Budrus fatally shot Samir Awad, 16,” according to HRW.

“Awad had entered an open military gate in the Israeli separation barrier. Soldiers appeared and shot Awad as he tried to run away,” witnesses said, according to HRW.

The HRW release details the witness testimonies and other facts about both cases.

Ongoing attacks on children

Israeli occupation forces killed 28 Palestinians from the West Bank in 2013, three times as many as in 2012.

The year 2013 also saw the highest number of child fatalities by Israeli forces in the West Bank since 2006.

At least 11 children, including a two-year-old girl, were shot and injured by Israeli occupation forces enforcing the siege of Gaza during 2013.

Hala Abu Sbeikha, a toddler, was killed on 24 December 2013 in an Israeli air attack on Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza.

Already on 3 January this year, Adnan Abu Khater, 16, died of injuries suffered when he was shot with live ammunition by Israeli occupation forces east of Jabaliya near the boundary fence between Gaza and present-day Israel.

Impunity

HRW’s release highlights the persistent impunity enjoyed by members of the Israeli occupation forces who kill and injure Palestinians.

“Israel has indicted only 16 security officials for unlawfully killing Palestinians since September 2000, and convicted only six; the longest jail sentence imposed was for seven months, according to information Yesh Din, an Israeli rights group, obtained from the military,” says HRW.

Since 2000, more than 6,700 Palestinians, almost 1,400 of them children, have been killed by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

West Bank convent loses appeal over IsraHell separation barrier route

NOVANEWS

Catholic group criticises ruling after seven-year legal battle over barrier that will separate Cremisan nuns from most of their land.

Israel is expected to press ahead with construction of the vast West Bank barrier around a convent near the Christian town of Beit Jala, following a ruling from a special appeals committee.

The route of the barrier will separate a small community of elderly nuns at the Cremisan convent from 75% of their land and from a nearby monastery with which it has close ties. The playground of a nursery and a school run by the Cremisan sisters will be bordered on three sides by the wall.

More than 50 Palestinian families will lose free access to their agricultural land, causing economic hardship to the dwindling Christian community.

The campaign against the route of the barrier at Cremisan was taken up by the UK foreign secretary, William Hague, and the archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols. In a letter disclosed by the Guardian last year, Hague told Nichols that he shared his “concerns about the problem of land confiscation by the Israeli authorities affecting the people of Beit Jala and similar Palestinian communities in the occupied territories”.

Following a seven-year legal campaign, Israel’s special appeals committee this week ruled in favour of the route, which leaves the convent on the Palestinian side of the barrier and the monastery and land belonging to the convent and local families on the Israeli side.

According to the Society of St Yves, a Catholic human rights organisation that represented the nuns, the committee decided that the proposed route was “a reasonable solution that balances Israel’s security needs on one hand and freedom of religion and the right to education on the other”.

However, the society said the ruling was “highly problematic and unjust”. It failed to properly address “the violation of freedom of religion, the right to education as well as the economical damage caused for a unique Christian minority in Beit Jala by the construction of the wall,” it said. It is considering an appeal to Israel’s supreme court.

The UK government provided indirect funding for the legal case. It says Israel is entitled to build a barrier but it should lie on the internationally recognised 1967 Green Line, not on confiscated Palestinian land. About 85% of the barrier is inside the West Bank. The route is harming the prospects of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to Britain.

In his Christmas Eve homily in 2011, Nichols offered prayers in support of the community’s “legal battle to protect their land and homes from further expropriation by Israel”.

Last year Israel’s defence ministry told the Guardian: “The route of the security fence in the Beit Jala region is based purely on security considerations. This portion is there solely to keep terror out of Jerusalem.”

Zio-Nazi forces and Nazi settlers escalate attacks against Qasra village, southeast of Nablus

NOVANEWS

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns the escalation of attacks by Israeli forces and settlers against Qasra village, southeast of Nablus. The latest incident involved joint attacks launched by Israeli forces and settlers on Saturday, 23 February 2013, which injured 8 Palestinian civilians, including 3 children. A few days earlier, 6 cars were burnt out or damaged, and Israeli forces destroyed part of the electricity network and dismantled 36 electricity towers in areas that are frequently subjected to attacks by Israeli settlers. PCHR believes that the cover, protection and support provided to settlers by Israeli forces encourages them to commit more systematic crimes against Palestinian civilians.

According to investigations conducted by PCHR, at approximately 12:00 on Saturday, 23 February 2013, at least 25 Israeli settlers, some of whom were armed with machine guns, moved from “Yish Kodesh” settlement to Qasra village, southeast of Nablus, and attacked a house belonging to ‘Abdul Majid Tawfiq Salama in al-Wa’ar area in the southeast of the village. A number of Palestinian civilians gathered in the area; some rushed to the area when announcements were made from mosque loudspeakers calling for assistance to protect the above house from the settlers, who were escorted by Israeli forces. These civilians threw stones at the Israeli forces and settlers. Immediately, Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas canisters at them, and the settlers also opened fire. As a result, 8 civilians, including 3 children, were wounded. One of the civilians, Helmi ‘Abdul ‘Aziz Hassan, 27, was seriously wounded by a live bullet to the abdomen.

In a previous attack, on Thursday morning, 21 February 2013, Israelis settlers set fire to 4 cars in the village and broke the windows of another two. On Wednesday, 20 February 2013, Israeli forces destroyed a part of the electricity network in the village, and dismantled 36 electricity towers.

PCHR has repeatedly warned of escalated attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinian civilians and their property. PCHR strongly condemns such escalation of attacks by Israeli forces and settlers against Palestinian civilians and their property in Qasra village, and all other attacks launched by Israeli settlers throughout the West Bank. In this context, PCHR:

1.     Reminds the international community that the building of settlements constitutes a war crime under international law; the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention, individually or jointly, must assume their legal and moral responsibilities and fulfill their obligation to ensure Israel’s respect for the Convention in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) in accordance with Article (1) of the Convention;

2.     Calls upon the international community to pressurize Israel to fulfill its obligations under the international law by putting an end to settlement expansion and dismantling all illegal settlements in the oPt.

Zio-Nazi army blocks aid delivery to West Bank residents

NOVANEWS
 

Zio-Nazi army blocked a convoy from delivering humanitarian aid to the Palestinian residents of Jordan Valley in northern West Bank, an aid worker said Saturday.

The convoy was carrying winter outfits, mattresses, food and toys for about 30 families whose makeshift shelters were destroyed by stormy weather recently, said the aid worker named Nedaa Yousif.

Zio-Nazi army gave no clear justification for preventing the 300-member convoy and the goods they were carrying from reaching the area, Yousif said.

The Jordan Valley territories make 26 percent of the West Bank and are largely under Zio-Nazi security and administrative control.

Nedaa Yousif organized a sit-in at an Zio-Nazi army checkpoint on the way to Jordan Valley, protesting the Nazi measures against the aid convoy.

Nour Oudeh, the Palestinian government’s spokesperson, described banning the delivery of the goods as “very dangerous measures.”

صحف عبرية- السنة التي كانت: من ربيع عربي الى شتاء اسلامي

Posted by: Siba Bizri

Arabic Shoah Editor in Chief

اصطبغت سنة 2012 كالسنة التي سبقتها بصبغة الربيع العربي، هناك من يقول انه شتاء اسلامي الذي زار منطقتنا. ومن الواضح منذ زمن أن الحديث ليس عن حادثة نقطية بل عن مسار تاريخي كانت نقطة بدئه الثورة في تونس في كانون الاول/ديسمبر 2010 لكن مايزال من غير الممكن ان نرى نهايته.

توجد اماكن يمكن الحديث فيها عن ‘نهاية البداية’ في الزعزعة التي جرت على دول المنطقة. في هذه الاماكن كمصر أو تونس بل ليبيا، انتهى بنجاح النضال لابعاد المستبدين البغيضين وانقضى النظام القديم. لكن توجد اماكن كسورية لا يمكن الحديث فيها حتى عن ‘نهاية البداية’، لأن النضال لاسقاط السلطة ما يزال في ذروته وبعيدا عن نهايته. ونقول في النهاية انه توجد اماكن كالممالك العربية، ولا سيما الاردن أو حتى دول الخليج حتى لم يبدأ فيها الربيع العربي، رغم الغليان الذي يتم الشعور به في الشوارع. ان الاردن مثلا قد يكون، وذلك لغير صالحه ومن المؤكد انه لغير مصالح اسرائيل الواضحة، قد يكون بطل الربيع القريب أو ربما ذاك الذي سيأتي على أثره.
لكن حتى في الاماكن التي أُسقط فيها حكام الماضي يتبين ان النضال لم ينته، بل ما يزال في ذروته. ولم يعد هذا نضالا للحاكم البغيض بل أصبح نضالا لملء الفراغ الذي نشأ في أعقاب سقوط نظم حكم الماضي، وهو في الأصل نضال عن الوجهة والطريق التي ستسير فيها الدولة والمجتمع في تونس وليبيا ومصر. وهو صراع بين التيار الاسلامي الذي يريد للاسلام ان يحكم حياة الدولة والمجتمع وبين الدوائر العلمانية التي تريد التحرر والحرية لا من الحاكم المستبد فقط بل من سلطة الفقهاء ايضا.

كانت 2012 ‘سنة مصر’ لأنه في هذه الدولة انتقلت السلطة الفعالة الى ممثل الاخوان المسلمين محمد مرسي. لكن الصراع حتى في هذه الدولة ما يزال بعيدا عن الحسم كما شهدت الأحداث العنيفة في شوارع القاهرة في الاسابيع الأخيرة.
ستكون السنة القادمة كما يبدو مصبوغة بصبغة الصراع في سورية. وقد أخذ يقوى في الاسابيع الأخيرة انطباع ان الصراع في هذه الدولةقد بلغ مرحلته الأخيرة.

إن الاسد في الحقيقة اجتاز التأبينات المبكرة وأظهر نظامه قدرة مدهشة على البقاء. ومع كل ذلك أصبح سوء وضعه في الاسابيع الأخيرة حقيقيا بل حرجا. وفقد النظام السوري السيطرة على أجزاء كبيرة من الدولة، وهو يوشك كما يبدو أن يفقد حلب وهي المدينة الثانية فيأهميتها في سورية، ويقاتل في معركة بقاء في مواجهة المتمردين في ريف العاصمة دمشق.

ومع ذلك ومثل كل شيء آخر يتعلق بالثورة السورية، قد تكون المرحلة الأخيرة من الصراع الجاري للسيطرة على هذه الدولة طويلة متواصلة. ينبغي اذا ان نفترض ان يستمر النظام السوري على الاحتضار نحو نهايته في مسار تدريجي قد يستمر مدة غير قصيرة.
مهما يكن الأمر فان جميع الدلائل تشير الى ان السنة القريبة، سنة 2013، ستصطبغ بصبغة استمرار الغليان وعدم الاستقرار واستمرارالصراع ايضا الذي هو في جزء منه صراع عنيف للسيطرة في الدول العربية المحيطة بنا.

وكل ذلك مع افتراض ألا تسرق ايران منزلة الريادة من أخواتها العربيات وألا يعود التقديم المُعجل لمشروعها الذري ليقوم في مركز الانتباه في اسرائيل وفي العالم الواسع.

Sewage from West Bank settlement pollutes Palestinian fields

NOVANEWS

The kilometer-long overflow from Beitar Illit began because of a malfunction in the ultra-Orthodox town’s main pump and lasted for about 10 days; director of Gush Etzion field school petitioned Beitar Illit mayor to stop the overflow.

Haaretz

Raw sewage from the ultra-Orthodox town of Beitar Illit in the West Bank overflowed this month and polluted fields cultivated by Palestinian farmers who live in the village of Wadi Fukhin below. Alerted to the issue, a settler from Gush Etzion came to the aid of the Palestinians and petitioned the Beitar Illit mayor to take a stand.

The sewage overflow began two weeks ago after a malfunction in the Beitar Illit delivery facility. According to residents of the Palestinian village, the leak continued for about 10 days. The sewage flowed for about a kilometer, ultimately reaching Ein Tzadik, a spring that serves the inhabitants of the village. That water was then polluted.

About two days ago, the flow of the sewage stopped. According to Ali Sukar, who lives in the village and had fields damaged by the runoff, this is not the first time there has been such an overflow. The difference this time, however, is that in the past the flows tended to last less than a day. “Part of my field is gone and in the meantime we aren’t drinking from the spring until it is clean,” says Suker.

The director of the Gush Etzion Field School, Yaron Rozental, sounded the alarm about the malfunction.

In a letter to Beitar Illit Mayor Meir Rubinstein last week, he wrote: “You most certainly know that this is not the first time sewage has leaked onto the groves and vegetable fields of the villagers who live in the village of Wadi Fukhin and cultivate the land on the slope of the wadi. As someone who grew up on a kibbutz and earns his living from agriculture, and who as a child spent most of his free time working in the field and the groves, I understand the great frustration caused to farmers who have invested their money and most of their time in sowing or planting and have the entire crop go down the drain because of the negligence of the town of Beitar.

“There are sewage malfunctions everywhere. But here it isn’t going down to a stream or to the sea – it is directly destroying fields. It doesn’t matter whether Beitar likes or doesn’t like the fact that there is a Palestinian village below them – that is the situation,” wrote Rozental.

Officials in the Beitar Illit municipality deny that the run-off continued for several days.

“There was a malfunction at the northern sewage facility and it was dealt with immediately,” said municipal spokesman Moshe Freidman. “There is also one pump that was taken out for renovation. We are doing, and will continue to do, our best in order to solve the problem immediately. There wasn’t a continuous flow, nor was the amount of flow mentioned. There was just malfunctions for brief periods. All told, over the course of those two weeks the flow lasted for an hour to two hours, on only three or four occasions.”

3 Jewish Nazi’s arrested for vandalizing Palestinian property

Young racist Jewish Nazi’s apprehended after torching car, spray-painting ‘price tag’ graffiti in Palestinian town

ynet

The Shai District Police arrested three men in their 20s while they were trying to vandalize Palestinian property in the West Bank village of Samu’a.

The suspects appear to have managed to torch a car in the nearby town of ad-Dhahiriya and spray paint graffiti before being apprehended. They were found in possession of flammable materials, pocket knifes, spray paint and a fake M-16 rifle that they evidently used for deterrence purposes.

The police have confiscated the equipment and said there is substantial evidence to incriminate the suspects. The police allege the three were responsible for other nationalistically-driven crimes perpetrated in the West Bank recently.

Their arrests concludes a months-long undercover investigation meant to crack down on Jewish vandals who committed anti-Arab crimes.

The slogans the suspects spray-painted in ad-Dhahiriya included “Price Tag” and “Congratulations Effy” – an message evidently dedicated to a fellow youth who got married last week. This isn’t the first time that such an act of vandalism is dedicated to a fellow right-wing radical. A few weeks ago graffiti daubed in the region mentioned Akiva, a youth who recently completed an administrative suspension penalty, according to the police. The act was said to be perpetrated in homage to the young man.

The suspects’ representation accused the police of trying to blow the incident out of proportion.

“Calling a plastic toy rifle that doesn’t even make noise an ‘improvised weapon’ is a blatant lie meant to demonize the suspects,” the officials said.

ZIO-NAZI ATTACKS TIMED TO COINCIDE WITH OLIVE HARVESTS

NOVANEWS
General Assembly
GA/EF/3350
ZIO-NAZI ATTACKS TIMED TO COINCIDE WITH OLIVE HARVESTS, SECOND COMMITTEE TOLD DURING DISCUSSION ON ARAB SOVEREIGNTY OVER RESOURCES IN OCCUPIED LANDS.
 
There had been deliberate increases in Israeli attacks on Palestinian farmers during the olive-harvesting season, with some 8,000 trees uprooted, burned or destroyed this year alone, the Observer for Palestine told the Second Committee (Economic and Financial) today as it took up the question of permanent sovereignty of Arab peoples under occupation over their natural resources.Pointing out that olive cultivation and the associated olive oil industry accounted for 14 per cent of the Occupied Palestinian Territory’s gross domestic product, he said they supported nearly 100,000 families.
Furthermore, agriculture, the cornerstone of Palestine’s economic sustainability, was deprived of its capacity to play a central role due to expropriation, the prevention of access to agricultural land and water resources, and the denial of access to local and foreign markets in which Palestinians could sell their produce could purchase necessary inputs. Additionally, Israel exploited more than 90 per cent of Palestinian water resources for its exclusive use, including in settlements, while allocating less than 10 per cent for use by Palestinians..Echoing that sentiment, 
Syria’s representative said Israel continued to dump industrial and chemical waste in the occupied Syrian Golan and to burn Syrian villages, adding that their inhabitants could not benefit from their main sources of income. Yet multiple resolutions and other international provisions, including the Rio+20 outcome document, affirmed clearly the right of the occupied Syrian Golan’s citizens to development, while calling for an end to the “barbaric” Israeli occupation, he noted, calling on Member States who regularly expressed support for human rights to stop ignoring Israel’s actions. By doing nothing, they supported the practices of Israeli terrorism, he said, emphasizing that the continuing occupation was the main obstacle to achieving any sort of development for the people of occupied Palestinian and Syrian lands.
The Deputy Executive Director of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) presented a report which stated that Palestinians continued to suffer death, injury and incarceration under Israeli occupation. Among the Palestinians killed during the reporting period alone, 12 had been children. In 2011 alone, 620 Palestinian structures had been demolished, a 42 per cent increase compared to 2010, and 1,100 Palestinians had been displaced.
That policy was ongoing in East Jerusalem, as part of clear strategy to change facts on the ground, in violation of international resolutions, including Security Council resolution 478 (1980), he said.Mr. JIMÉNEZ ( Nicaragua) noted that the Palestinian people had been suffering for more than 62 years with the current blockade of Gaza strangling them and causing economic conditions that denied them basic economic needs. The economy was “based on occupation”, according to the report, and occupation infiltrated all levels of Palestinian lives, especially in the Gaza Strip, he said. There were not enough resources for people to devote even to their own survival, and there was no sense in talking about economic growth and sustainable development under military occupation. The people had no control over their land, water or other natural resources, he said, adding that the invading State had made even the most basic rights unattainable.
There was complete economic stagnation and thousands of victims, and Nicaragua supported the right of Palestinians to resist until their sovereignty was restored and there was an independent Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital. Condemning Israel’s violations of international law and United Nations resolutions, he said “State terrorism” had been the daily lot of people in the occupied lands, and Israel should be denounced ceaselessly until the Palestinian aspirations to sustainable development was met and Israel recognized their sovereignty.The representative of Syria, speaking in exercise of the right of reply, said the remarks by Israel’s delegate were insolent. Accusing the Committee of bias, he said Israel continued to commit crimes while preventing the population of the occupied Syrian Golan from accessing their natural resources. Citing the population’s great suffering, he added that the Israeli representative had no right to talk about human rights or freedom because while her country continued to deny the human rights of peoples under its occupation.
The representative of Iran called for the return to Palestine of all Palestinian refugees, saying he looked forward to their enjoying the right to vote in the United Nations soon. The representative of South Africa said the report’s analysis was “deeply disturbing”, with the occupation continuing to have adverse social and economic ramifications on the Palestinian people.
The report demonstrated why the Palestinian economy continued to operate so much below its potential, with prospects having become even bleaker in 2011 than previously. Problems included reduced real wages, a paralysed private sector, devastated infrastructure and a chronic fiscal crisis. Persistent widespread high unemployment exacerbated poverty, he said, emphasizing the importance of providing the Palestinian Authority with greater financing to establish a viable State.
Describing support for Palestine as a major part of his country’s international policy, he said South Africa wished to see expanded mandates for the agencies supporting the Palestinians, commensurate to the people’s needs.He went on to say that the policy position was informed by South Africa’s history of apartheid and human rights suppression. Expressing opposition to any effort to prevent Palestinian self-determination, he said his country continued to support Palestinian representation in the United Nations, as had been achieved in UNESCO.
Among the proactive policies followed by the South African Government, traders were required to refrain from incorrectly labelling products as emanating from Israel when they came from illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. That enabled South African consumers to decide for themselves whether or not they wished to purchase a given product, he said, calling on other States to implement similar measures in support of the Palestinian cause.

Video, A Protest Dance VS. IsraHell Soldiers and Colonists

NOVANEWS
From International Solidarity Movement (ISM) – Over 100 Palestinians together with international solidarity activists gathered in Hebron this Saturday to protest against the closure of Al-Shuhada Street. As a response to the infamous YouTube video of soldiers dancing near the illegal settlement of Tel-Rumeida, some protesters staged a dance protest: three dancers took the role of soldiers and searched and “arrested” three Palestinians.They performed in front of the gate that closes off Al-Shuhada Street and prohibits all Palestinians from using it. The demonstrators called for justice and the opening of Al-Shuhada Street, and for the inhabitants of illegal Israeli settlements to leave the city and take the soldiers with them.

The demonstration, held weekly on a Saturday afternoon, then turned and paraded through the town. As they approached the market the peaceful protesters’ path was blocked by a line of soldiers armed with M-16 rifles – some of whom were seen kicking and hitting protesters. After a short sit-in the protest continued by turning around and heading towards the Old City.
