Avigdor Lieberman

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman taught us today another lesson in Jewish diplomacy calling his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu a liar.

Lieberman took aim at Turkey today just hours after the Mavi Marmara was cheered into Istanbul port.

At a conference of Israeli ambassadors Lieberman also rejected the notion of peace with the Palestinians. “Even if we were to offer Tel Aviv as the capital of Palestine and returned to the 1948 borders they would still find a reason not to sign a deal.”

I can only advise Lieberman to give it a try. If he is indeed correct, if the Palestinian refuse to take Tel Aviv aka Yaffa back, it could be presented as a great Hasbara victory.

Dear Friends,


Just 4 items tonight—all dealing with a single subject: Civil Disobedience. 


Israeli activist Jonathan Pollak was sentenced today to 3 months in jail for practicing civil disobedience.  From my standpoint, he deserves a medal instead.  The final 2 items are about him.  Item 4, the Independent article on Jonathan was written prior to the verdict being given, but its details make it worth including.  Item 3 from the Guardian reports the verdict.  The 3 Israeli dailies also included news on the sentencing and some background


Amira Hass in item one relates the workings of the Shin Beit in certain instances.  The  young man whom Amira begins with, Matan Cohen, began practicing civil disobedience very young.  I recall him at 14 or so joining us on nearly every demonstration and other activity against the occupation.  Not all of these were overly safe.  Settlers could become violent, as also the police, border police, etc.  I’d ask him if his parents knew what he was doing, and if they did not mind his joining these events.  He always said that his parents knew and that it was ok with them, even though they themselves were not politically active.  I met them eventually—when we visited Matin in the hospital, after he had been hit in the eye by a rubber bullet shot by one of the IOF soldiers.


In item 2, Daphna Golan discusses the duty of the citizen.  In a word, though she does not use the term, she essentially recommends practicing civil disobedience.  I fully agree.


All the best,

Shin Bet puts Israeli ‘anarchists’ in crosshairs

Security forces’ Jewish Department warns leftist activists that they might be found to be violating the law.


By Amira Hass


The two security cadets at Ben-Gurion International Airport stood by the plane’s door. That Friday, December 17, they were waiting not for some Mohammad, but rather for a Cohen. Matan Cohen.


He disembarked, and they followed him through passport control. From there he was taken to a small interrogation room. The duty policeman told Cohen, 22, a student at Hampshire College, that he was being detained on suspicion of “hostile activity.”


Cohen: “Was it you who decided to detain me?”


Policeman: “No, security elements did.”


Cohen: “Meaning the Shin Bet security service?”


Policeman: “Yes, the Shin Bet’s Jewish department.”


Four more people in civilian clothes examined Cohen’s possessions. It took them two and a half hours. They asked some questions that showed Cohen they did not know a thing about him. (He is an anarchist activist and one of the coordinators of BDS – Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions on Israel – in the United States. ) They told him they did not have the security clearance to gain access to his file.


“We merely were warned that you are suspected of terrorist activity,” which means they have to go through his bags, they said. After the examination, he was taken back to the policeman, who said, “If it were up to me, I would let you go already. I’m waiting for a telephone call from the head of the Jewish department.”


Cohen: “[Am I] a suspect in something?”


Policeman: “You’re not a suspect. You’re suspected.”


Cohen: “Your grammar is amazing.”


Policeman: “It means that they think you’re connected to something but you are not suspected of anything concrete.”


Cohen: “In other words, you can detain me whenever you wish.”


Policeman: “These are the instructions I got from the Shin Bet and the decision is theirs.”


Eventually the policeman filed a detention report, writing: “Suspected of hostile terror activity by Shin Bet.” Cohen, who was home for a vacation from his studies in political economy, philosophy and psychoanalysis, left the airport for his parents’ house.


He was not the only anarchist the Jewish department dealt with that week. Five days earlier, Kobi Snitz was attending a conference when he received a call from an unidentified number. The caller told him, “Shalom, this is Rona from the Shin Bet. I’m sure you’ve heard about me.”


“She said she wanted to invite me for a friendly conversation and for us to exchange thoughts,” said Snitz, 39, an anarchist activist and a mathematician. He asked whether he was being called in for an interrogation and when she said no, he said, no thanks. In 2009, Snitz served a 20-day sentence over an attempt a few years earlier to prevent the demolition of a house in Kharbatha, a village west of Ramallah. Two months ago, he was given another five-day sentence over a protest against the Second Lebanon War in 2006.


“The Jewish department believes that every Arab is dangerous and that they can take us, the naive activists, for a ride,” says Snitz. “They call us in order to create a psychological profile, to know which of us they can exploit, and who can be exploited by others. They are not looking for information.”


Assaf Kintzer received a call on December 9: “Shalom, this is Rona from the Shin Bet. How are you?” After he said “okay,” she said she wanted to see him and asked him to come to the Dizengoff Street police station in Tel Aviv. It’s urgent, she added. Kintzer, 33, said he could not come immediately. She said: “I’ll call you again soon, and it’s worth your while to come.” She then continued, as Kintzer recalled, “Listen, if you aren’t coming now, I’ll tell you a bit by phone. I want you to know that we know what you are doing and that it will have repercussions. At the moment, what you are doing is on the borderline of the law and it is quite possible that information on you will show your actions are illegal. We know about all your files.”


That same day, Kintzer was called to the police station to be interrogated after being detained at two demonstrations against the separation fence at Ma’asara.


Then Rona added: “In addition to your activity in the West Bank, we know that you are involved in [a plan to demonstrate against] the business conference. If you do anything violent, there will be consequences. Why aren’t you talking?”


I have no reason to answer, he said. So Rona, he recalls, said in parting: “You should know that I’m not against you at all. I am on your side and take part in demonstrations.”


One person who did go to meet Rona two weeks ago, mainly out of curiosity, was N., 30, another member of Anarchists against the Wall.


The entire meeting, including the security check with a magnometer and the screening of his bag, took less than 20 minutes. Rona could not get N. to respond to her questions, but N. said she had the following message: “We know what you are doing. At the moment you are not violating the law and we don’t have any problem with you. The moment you violate the law, we’ll be there.”


Haaretz asked the Shin Bet whether it was warning activists about violating laws that the Knesset may pass in the future, thus making their actions illegal. The newspaper also asked who was considered “suspected,” and whether members of the service could participate in demonstrations against the government.


The Shin Bet responded, “The security service acts in keeping with the authority granted it by law to fulfill its objective of protecting state security, institutions and public order in a democratic regime from threats of terror, damage, subversion, spying and revealing state secrets, as stipulated in paragraph 7 (a ) of the Shin Bet security service law from 2002. As for the extent to which Shin Bet employees may take part in demonstrations, they are subject to the restrictions imposed on all civil servants.”

It’s our duty to challenge Israel’s law of segregation

In a country in which people live in fear, it is not only our right but our duty to offer a space of hope.


By Daphna Golan



Ilana Hammerman’s articles challenge us to ask what the role of a citizen is in a country where the law is illegal. In this space known as Israel and the occupied territories, the space guarded by Israeli soldiers, there are six groups with different rights and different levels of freedom of movement, according to the law.


The first group consists of about 1.5 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, who have been under a prolonged closure for years, with only a small number of persons bearing special permits allowed to leave. The second group is the 2.4 million Palestinians in the West Bank, barred from entering Jerusalem or Israel proper unless they have special permits, which they can receive only in exceptional cases from the military authority known as the Civil Administration. The settlements, all of which are illegal by international law, have stolen 44 percent of West Bank land for Jewish settlers. They have been surrounded by patrol and access roads, on which Palestinians are not allowed to travel. The roads from one place to another inside the territories are also blocked by hundreds of checkpoints. The freedom of movement of almost all Palestinians in the West Bank is limited – to inside the West Bank only.


The third group is the quarter-million Palestinian residents of Jerusalem, who have blue identity cards and can travel in Israel, Jerusalem and parts of the West Bank, but whose travel outside of that space is controlled and restricted by Israel. Jerusalem Palestinians who leave the city to study abroad, or even in Bethlehem, lose their status of “permanent residents,” which signifies their future temporary presence in the city.


The Palestinian citizens of Israel are the fourth group, and supposedly have the same freedom of movement as the fifth group: the Jewish citizens of Israel. Neither group is allowed to enter Gaza or the main cities in the West Bank. But the law allows Jews from the whole world and from Israel to settle in Israel and the territories, and to receive Israeli citizenship, while forbidding – with the endorsement of the Supreme Court – Palestinians from the first, second, third and fourth groups to intermarry and decide where to live together.


The sixth group is asylum seekers and migrant laborers, whose freedom of movement is restricted and who live in fear of being deported. While this group is new here, after 43 years of occupation, the regime that separates different groups of people with different rights is not temporary and resembles the apartheid regime.


In South Africa, too, the apartheid system was created thanks to detailed legislation that determined who had the right to vote, who had the right to live where, which persons had to carry passes to stay in white cities and which lived there by right, and which were considered strangers in the very cities in which they were born and grew up. Apartheid was not only a system of racial discrimination maintained by the military through the use of extreme force, but a system of discrimination regulated by legislation.


The State of Israel also emphasizes, both to its own citizens and the international community, that it is a state of law; the occupied territories are administered by a system of laws, orders and directives. The Supreme Court expanded its jurisdiction into the territories. Furthermore, Israel has signed most of the main international conventions on human rights (although with significant reservations ), and invests considerable efforts in maintaining the rule of law. Like in South Africa, separation and discrimination are enforced by the law.


Like Ilana Hammerman, I too refuse to obey illegal laws. In a country where spacious prisons were built under the protection of the law, in which people live in fear, it is not only our right but our duty to offer a space of hope. As long as we do not have agreed-upon borders, we are living in an occupying country that discriminates between the rights of different groups based on their ethnicity.


In such a country, just like in South Africa under apartheid, it is our right and our duty to challenge the legality of the law.

Israeli activist imprisoned for protest against Gaza blockade 

Jonathan Pollak handed three-month term after taking part in Tel Aviv protest cycle ride in January 2008

The prominent Israeli activist Jonathan Pollak was today sentenced to three months in prison by a Tel Aviv court for taking part in a bicycle demonstration against the blockade of Gaza almost three years ago.


Human rights activists condemned the prison term, saying it was an unusually harsh punishment for a charge that usually results in a non-custodial sentence.


Pollak, 28, is one of the founders of a leftwing Israeli group called Anarchists against the Wall, which demonstrates with Palestinian activists in the occupied territories.


In January 2008, he participated, along with 30 others, in a “critical mass bicycle ride” through Tel Aviv. During the demonstration, police arrested Pollak but allowed the rest of the activists to continue with the protest, his lawyer said.


Pollak remained defiant after sentencing. “I have no doubt that what we did was right and, if anything, not sufficient considering what is being done in our name,” he said in a telephone interview. “If I have to go to prison to resist the occupation, I will do it gladly.”


Pollak described his sentence as “part of the general deterioration in the right to dissent from the general Israeli discourse regarding the occupation”.


His lawyer, Gaby Lasky, who defends many activists arrested while protesting against Israeli policies in Gaza and the West Bank, said the sentence was unusual.


“It is not common that someone found guilty of illegal assembly will be sent to prison,” said Lasky, who has worked in this field for eight years.


“We are in the midst of a high wave of detentions of activists,” she added. “The criminalisation of leftwing demonstrations is a policy these days”.


An official at the court of first instance in Tel Aviv, who asked to remain anonymous, said it was extremely rare for judges to hand down a jail sentence in an illegal assembly case.


The official pointed out, however, that Pollak had three previous convictions, including one for “distraction of order and vandalism”, and a three-month suspended sentence for demonstrating against the West Bank separation barrier.


The Israeli police and the ministry of justice declined to comment.


The Association for Civil Rights in Israel criticised the sentence. “Placing Pollak behind bars because of his participation in the critical mass bike ride is an extreme punishment and an unusually harsh measurement,” Dan Yakir, the organisation’s chief legal adviser, said in a statement.


“The entire affair raises suspicion that Pollak was personally targeted because of his views in an attempt to silence him and prevent him from partaking in various acts of protest.”

Jewish activist faces jail for West Bank resistance


By Donald Macintyre in Tel Aviv


Jonathan Pollak could be jailed for up to six months


It is not every day that a leading Palestinian activist issues an emphatic statement of support for a Jewish Israeli – “this friend, whose friendship I am proud to share” – facing prison.


But then Jonathan Pollak, who could be jailed for between three and six months when the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court decides on his prosecution for illegal assembly today, is an unusual figure even in the long history of Israeli dissent.


The man praising him, Ayed Morrar, has become internationally known thanks to an award-winning documentary on the victorious unarmed struggle he led to change the route of the Israeli military’s separation barrier in the Palestinian village of Budrus. Mr Pollak, 28, is already a veteran of that and many other battles against the barrier and settlements in the West Bank, protesting alongside Palestinian residents and sharing the same physical risks in the clashes between armed security forces – that sometimes use live ammunition – and stone-throwing young villagers that the struggle tends to generate.


Thanks to his media work for the Popular Struggle Co-ordination Committee, which loosely links these village protests, Mr Pollak is the best known of the small-but-persistent group of young Israelis who go week after week to the West Bank to take part.


Yet the current indictment is for something closer to home – his participation in a cycle ride through the streets of Tel Aviv some 30 Israelis held in protest at the siege of Gaza in January 2008. The cycle ride was similar to many others that have been held unimpeded in the city to further environmental goals. He was the only one arrested. “From the arrest itself to the indictment, this has been a political case,” he said yesterday. “Had we not been protesting the occupation, none of it would have taken place.”


Mr Pollak was born to leftist parents, who will be present in court today. His father Yossi is one of Israel’s most prominent actors – among those pledged to boycott performances some of Israel’s leading theatres are planning to stage in the West Bank Jewish settlement of Ariel. His maternal grandfather, Nimrod Eshel, was jailed for his leadership of a strike by seamen in the 1950s.


He attended the first of very many demonstrations as a months-old babe-in-arms at the huge mass rally in Tel Aviv calling for an end to the first Lebanon war in 1982. What makes him and his Israeli comrades unusual, however, is the decision to go beyond mere demonstrations to, as he himself puts it, “crossing sides, moving from protest to joining resistance”.


A high school dropout at 15, he was a teenage animal right activist, a cause with few Israeli adherents – and most of those Israelis who were part of it were anarchists. Very much part of Tel Aviv’s young counterculture in the politically relatively relaxed Nineties, Mr Pollak became one too. He remains an anarchist and a vegan, still a strong believer in animal rights, which he sees as consistent with his wider politics. For him, “racism, chauvinism, sexism, speciesism all come from the same place of belittling the other”, he said.


A few minor brushes with the law appear to have been enough to convince the army that he was not suitable material for compulsory military service. “I don’t think they wanted me any more than I wanted them,” he said. He spent two years in the Netherlands, living in a squat, before being deported back to Israel.


By this time, the second intifada was at its peak, and Mr Pollak found himself drawn, despite the dangers for a young Israeli of visiting the West Bank at the time, to the unarmed dimension of the Palestinian cause – including, most significantly, the very first anti-barrier protests in the West Bank village of Jayyous.


According to Mr Morrar, a long-term opponent of armed uprising, “Jonathan… is a man trying to prove that those who believe in occupation cannot claim to be humanitarian or civilised. He also wants to prove that resisting oppression and occupation does not mean being a terrorist or killing”. Just as Mr Pollak learned his Arabic on the Palestinian street, as a serial leafleteer he discovered a talent for graphic design, which makes him a living when he needs the money.


His lawyer, Gaby Lasky, has been arguing throughout the case that his indictment was discriminatory. But if he is convicted he will go to prison “wholeheartedly and with my head held high”, as he hopes to tell the court in a polite but uncompromising address. He planned to say: “It will be the justice system itself… that will need to lower its eyes in the face of the suffering inflicted on Gaza’s inhabitants, just as it … averts its vision every day when faced with the realities of the occupation.”

Boycott! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call from Within

Dear Thomas Quasthoff,

We are a group of Israeli citizens, writing in support of the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine’s (BRICUP) open letter to you.

We support the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it abides by international law and ceases its systematic violations of Palestinian human rights; as such, we would like to share with you our concerns regarding your scheduled performances in Israel and urge you to cancel them.


BDS is a rapidly growing non-violent, human-rights based Palestinian-led movement. It was launched by over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations, and amongst its many worldwide supporters – including directors Mike Leigh and Ken Loach, 180 Irish artists500 Montreal artists, and the international alliance Artists against Apartheid– are Jews and citizens of Israel who object to Israel’s attempts to construct a facade of normalcy over its constant violation of Palestinian human rights.

In his report to the United Nations General Assembly, UN Special Rapporteur Richard Falk notes that the tendency of the international community to overlook Israel’s encroachment on the rights of Palestinians living under Israeli military control in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, has resulted in the apartheid features of Israel’s current day de facto occupation.

Mr. Falk points out that Palestinians are, for instance, barred from using the same roads as the residents of their neighboring Jewish-only settlements; their mobility is restricted even between their own villages, and sometimes within them, by military checkpoints, fences and a 26 ft. high cement wall, resulting in denied access to adequate medical services and work; their private agricultural lands are illegally confiscated and annexed to expanding Jewish settlements, and violent settlers attacks on their olive groves and mosques are systematically overlooked. In the context of your performances, Israel’s apartheid policies also mean that a Palestinian fan of yours living under Israeli occupation is not allowed by law – and denied by walls, fences and checkpoints – to come hear you perform in Tel-Aviv.

Those who suggest to you that your performance in Israel might in some way “strengthen the notion of co-existence” are either ignorant of the situation in Israel/Palestine or are intentionally overlooking it so as to make sure their own lives are not inconvenienced by publicly acknowledging it. Almost every international performance – large as small – is understood amongst the Israeli public as condoning this reality of systematic ethnic oppression and making a statement against the necessity of changing it.

Going through with your scheduled performances in Israel will bring a message of support for Israel’s policies of apartheid and oppression. A recent report by Amnesty, Oxfam and other respected human rights organizations, also highlights the need for steady substantial pressure on Israel “to ensure an immediate, unconditional, and complete lifting of the blockade” of Gaza: recently revealed official documents have demonstrated that in the case of the Gaza blockade Israel has implemented “a policy of deliberate reduction” for basic goods, calculating the amount of food allowed to enter the Gaza strip using mathematical formulas to measure the amount of food sufficient to keep Gaza inhabitants alive at a near-malnutrition level threatening the health and well being of children, women and men (allowing in an average of less than a third of the needed goods). Goods “of a rehabilitative character” were shown to have not been allowed to enter the Gaza strip, thus preventing the reconstruction of schools, hospitals and homes.

As Mr. Falk notes, “the BDS campaign seeks to respond to the failure of Israel to uphold its obligations under international law with respect to the Palestinian people”. For decades, the international community has played into Israel’s attempts to render a reality of brutal oppression – keeping millions under the rule of martial law in the West Bank, illegally blockading Gaza, and denying Palestinian 1948 refugees the UN sanctioned right of return and compensation – normal.

International performances in Israel at this time elicit a message of ‘business as usual’ — that nothing has to be changed because things are fine the way they are. Last month, the Israeli cabinet agreed on a bill requiring that non-Jews who seek Israeli citizenship must swear an oath of allegiance to Israel as a Jewish state. Last week, dozens of Israel’s Chief Rabbis issued a public bill ordering against the selling or renting of property to Arab citizens of Israel, constituting 20% of Israel’s population. We urge you to cancel your performances in Israel and not grant your seal of approval to Israel’s ongoing crimes and human rights violations.

By: Tony Greenstein

City’s deputy mayor initiated bonfire of missionary-distributed material, held next to a synagogue in town.

20.05.08. Associated Press

Orthodox Jews set fire to hundreds of copies of the New Testament in the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in the Holy Land.

Or Yehuda Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon said missionaries recently entered a neighborhood in the predominantly religious town of 34,000 in central Israel, distributing hundreds of New Testaments and missionary material.

After receiving complaints, Aharon said, he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and drove through the neighborhood, urging people to turn over the material to Jewish religious students who went door to door to collect it.

“The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a synagogue,” he said.

The newspaper Maariv reported Tuesday that hundreds of yeshiva students took part in the book-burning. But Aharon told The Associated Press that only a few students were present, and that he was not there when the books were torched.

“Not all of the New Testaments that were collected were burned, but hundreds were,” he said.
He said he regretted the burning of the books, but called it a commandment to burn materials that urge Jews to convert.

“I certainly don’t denounce the burning of the booklets, he said. I denounce those who distributed the booklets.”

Jews worship from the Old Testament, including the Five Books of Moses and the writings of the ancient prophets. Christians revere the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, which contains the ministry of Jesus.

Calev Myers, an attorney who represents Messianic Jews, or Jews who accept Jesus as their savior, demanded in an interview with Army Radio that all those involved be put on trial. He estimated there were 10,000 Messianic Jews, who are also known as Jews for Jesus, in Israel.
Police had no immediate comment.

Israeli authorities and Orthodox Jews frown on missionary activity aimed at Jews, though in most cases it is not illegal. Still, the concept of a Jew burning books is abhorrent to many in Israel because of the association with Nazis torching piles of Jewish books during the Holocaust of World War II.

Earlier this year, the teenage son of a prominent Christian missionary was seriously wounded when a package bomb delivered to the family’s West Bank home went off in his hands.

Last year, arsonists burst into a Jerusalem church used by Messianic Jews and set the building on fire, raising suspicions that Jewish extremists were behind the attack. No one claimed responsibility, but the same church was burned down 25 years ago by ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists




It is ironical, given that fundamentalist Christians are those who are most supportive of Israel and the Zionists. Ironical because within Orthodox Judaism there is a virulent anti-Christian strain.

Of course some of this was understandable, given the existence of Christian anti-Semitism you might think, but in fact Talmudic anti-Christian sentiments were a product of the Jews’ historic social roles as traders. The contempt for Christianity was on a par with the contempt that the rich have for the poor, in other words a distorted form of class hatred at a time when Jews were, in Abram Leon’s words [The Jewish Question, A Marxist Interpretation] a People-Class.

As chance would have it, I was having a debate over this very topic. As is well known the Talmud holds that there is a difference between saving a Jewish life or killing a Jew and saving or not saving a non-Jew or killing them. We have seen that with the recent controversy over Torat Hamelech in Israel – a book which justifies the mass murder of non-Jews.

It’s author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, whose arrest was attacked across the religious Zionist spectrum, wrote e.g. this under “Conclusions – Chapter Five: The Killing of Gentiles in War”:

“There is a reason to kill babies [on the enemy side] even if they have not transgressed the seven Noahide Laws [to believe in God, not to commit idolatry, murder, theft or adultery, to set up a legal system, and not to tear a limb from a live animal] because of the future danger they may present, since it is assumed that they will grow up to be evil like their parents….”

Is there anyone who can honestly say these are not Nazi-like principles? Babies and children can be killed because of the ‘future danger they may represent.’ Wasn’t this exactly the justification for killing Jewish children and babies by the Nazis?

But these view have a long pedigree, albeit in a very different context from today, i.e. it was never possible to carry them out and they therefore fell into disuse like much religious schmatter. The Talmudic principle in general is that Gentiles’ lives must not be saved although it is forbidden to murder them outright. Tractate Avodah Zarah p. 26b expresses this in the saying ‘Gentiles are neither to be lifted [out of a well] nor hauled down [into it]’.

Maimonides [Mishneh Torah, ‘Laws on Murderers’ 4,11 Talmudic Encyclopaedia, ‘Goy’] explained:

‘As for Gentiles with whom we are not at war… their death must not be caused, but it is forbidden to save them if they are at the point of death; if, for example, one of them is seen falling into the sea, he should not be rescued, for it is written: ‘neither shalt thou stand against the blood of they fellow – but [a Gentile] is not thy fellow.’
[for more such, see Israel Shahak Jewish History, Jewish Fundamentalism]

But of course this fell into disuse and it was disallowed if such behaviour were to cause Jews to come under threat, as it certainly would. It is under Zionism in Israel, that these long fallen into disuse religious commandments have taken on a new life as Jews have power again over non-Jews (Palestinians). These are the religious views that are exterminatory, because those holding these views have power already of life and death over the inhabitants of Gaza. Hamas has no power.

Although this article is over 2 years old it is an important one. How hundreds of New Testaments were burned by Orthodox Jews with the encouragement of Or Yehuda’s Mayor. Imagine the uproar if this had been Sifrei Torah.

And note how Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein, head of the Har Etzion Yeshiva who came out against the letter of the Chief Rabbi of Safed that Jews shouldn’t rent properties to non-Jews admitted that:

“There is no doubt the arguments in the letter are based on sources from the sages of blessed memory, and generations of halakhic tradition, but the document in general leaves one with the impression that it builds its conclusions on assumptions that reflect a particular, but not the only possible, halakhic approach.”

His views owed, of course, more to pragmatism, which has always guided the operative principles of Talmudic wisdom rather than any point of principle per se.

And also note how the ‘moderate’ Rabbi Haim Druckman is against discrimination against ‘loyal’ Arabs. In other words they face a political purity test of adherence to Zionism. But it was Zionism that led to the discrimination they faced in the first place. Zionism is, after all, about achieving a pure Jewish state. So there aren’t too many Zionist Arabs around! Druckmann’s is a nice compromise. You keep the discrimination and ban on renting to Arabs but the excuse changes – a bit!!

Israeli Activist Jonathan Pollak Sentenced to 3 Months in Prison; Tells Judge “I’ll Go to prison With my Head Held High”



Press Release

27 December 2010


Israeli Activist Jonathan Pollak Sentenced to 3 Months in Prison; Tells Judge “I’ll Go to prison With my Head Held High”

Pollak was sentenced to three months imprisonment this morning at the Tel Aviv Magistrates’ Court for his participation in a 2008 bicycle in protest of the siege on Gaza. He will begin serving his sentence on Januray 11th .

Tel Aviv Magistrates court judge Yitzhak Yitzhak convicted Pollak of illegal assembly for his participation in a January 2008 Critical Mass ride against the siege on Gaza and then sentenced him to three months imprisonment that will begin on January 11th, 2011. Pollak was the only one detained at the said protest, and was accused of doing nothing other than riding his bicycle in the same manner as the rest of the protesters.

The conviction activates an older three-month suspended sentence, imposed on Pollak in a previous trial for protesting the construction of the Separation Barrier. An additional three months prison term was also imposed for the current conviction, which will be served concurrently.

On his conviction, Pollak argued for his sentence, saying “I find myself unable to express remorse in this case […]. If His Honor decides to go ahead and impose my suspended prison sentence, I will go to prison wholeheartedly and with my head held high. It will be the justice system itself, I believe, that ought to lower its eyes in the face of the suffering inflicted on Gaza’s inhabitants, just like it lowers its eyes and averts its vision each and every day when faced with the realities of the occupation.” See Pollak’s full statement bellow.


For more details: Jonathan Pollak +972-54-632-7736

On January 31, 2008, some 30 protesters participated in a Critical Mass bicycle ride through the streets of Tel Aviv in protest of the siege on Gaza. During the protest, Pollak was arrested by plain-clothes police who recognized him from previous protests and because, as claimed in court, they assumed he was the organizer and figurehead of the event. The protest was allowed to continue undisturbed after Pollak’s arrest and ended with no further incidents or detentions.

The arrest and consequent indictment appears to be the result of police vindictiveness, rather than of Pollak’s behavior at the time of the event; Pollak was but one in a group of protesters who behaved exactly like him, yet he was the only one to be singled out. Moreover, environmental Critical Mass events take place in Tel Aviv on a regular basis, but have never been met with such a response.

Other protests, which have caused far more sever obstruction of traffic (e.g. the motorcade protest of thousands of motorcycles) did not result in arrests, and surely did not lead to the filing of criminal charges and imprisonment.

Adv. Gaby Lasky, Pollak’s lawyer: “The police not only singled out Pollak from a crowd of people who all did exactly as he did, but also singled out the entire protest for no reason other than its political alignment. Similar events regularly take place in Tel Aviv without police intervention, let alone arrests and indictments.”

Pollak’s sentencing argument:

Your Honor, once found guilty, it is then customary for the accused to ask the court for leniency, and express remorse for having committed the offence. However, I find myself unable to do so. From its very beginning, this trial contained practically no disagreements over the facts. As the indictment states, I indeed rode my bicycle, alongside others, through the streets of Tel Aviv, to protest the siege on Gaza.

And indeed, while riding our bicycles, which are legally vehicles belonging on the road, we may have slightly slowed down traffic. The sole and trivial disagreement in this entire case revolves around testimonies heard from police detectives, who claimed I played a leading role throughout the protest bicycle ride, something I, as well as the rest of the Defense witnesses, deny.

As said earlier, it is customary at this point of the proceedings to sound remorseful, and I would indeed like to voice my regrets regarding one particular aspect of that day’s events: if there is remorse in my heart, it is that, just as I argued during the trial, I did not play a prominent role in the protest that day, and thus did not fulfill my duty to do everything within my power to change the unbearable situation of Gaza’s inhabitants, and bring to an end Israel’s control over the Palestinians.

His Honor has stated during the court case, and will most likely state again in the future, that a trial is not a matter of politics, but of law. To this I reply that there is hardly anything to this trial except political disagreement. This Court may have impeded the mounting of an appropriate defense when it refused to hear arguments regarding political selectiveness in the Police’s conduct, but even from the testimonies which were admitted, it became clear such a selectiveness exists.

The subject of my alleged offense, as well as the motivation behind it were political. This is something that cannot be sidestepped. The State of Israel maintains an illegitimate, inhuman and illegal siege on the Gaza Strip, which still is occupied territory according to international law. This siege, carried out in my name and in yours as well, sir, in fact in all of our names, is a cruel collective punishment inflicted on ordinary citizens, residents of the Gaza strip, subjects-without-rights under Israeli occupation.

In the face of this reality, and as a stance against it, we chose on January 31st, 2008, to exercise the freedom of speech afforded to Jewish citizens of Israel. However, it appears that here in our one-of-many-faux-democracies in the Middle East, even this freedom is no longer freely granted, even to society’s privileged sons.

I am not surprised by the Court’s decision to convict me despite having no doubt in my mind that our actions on that day correspond to the most basic, elementary definitions of a person’s right to protest.

Indeed, as the Prosecution pointed out, a suspended prison sentence hung over my head at the time of the bicycle protest, having been convicted before under an identical article of law. And, although I still maintain I did not commit any offense whatsoever, I was aware of the possibility that under Israeli justice, my suspended sentence would be imposed.

I must add that, if His Honor decides to go ahead and impose my suspended prison sentence, I will go to prison wholeheartedly and with my head held high. It will be the justice system itself, I believe, that ought to lower its eyes in the face of the suffering inflicted on Gaza’s inhabitants, just like it lowers its eyes and averts its vision each and every day when faced with the realities of the occupation.

– Please distribute widely –

Dear Friends,

CO Ajuad Zidan, 18, from the town of Beit Jann, a Palestinian member of the Druze religious community, was sentenced to 20 days of imprisonment on 14 Dec for his refusal to enlist in the Israeli military. This is his second term in prison (he was earlier sentenced to 10 days in prison on 30 Nov., although he was released a few days early following the evacuation of Military Prison no. 6 during the fire on Mt. Carmel earlier this month). He is currently held in Military Prison no. 4.

Members of the Druze community, unlike most other Palestinian citizens of Israel, are conscripted into the Israeli army. Explaining his refusal to enlist Ajuad Zidan stated to the press that “the loneliness of the prison cell is one thousand times better than standing in front of my people while pointing a gun at them, or imposing a curfew on them”. On top of that, Ajuad has also stated his refusal to carry weapons or be part of any military force in general.

Ajuad is due to be released on 30 December, and is likely to be imprisoned again afterwards. We have only received full information on his case (and an explicit authorisation to publish it) at this late stage, so, currently sending him messages directly to prison will not make much sense (he will be out by the time they arrive). However, letters of support and encouragement can still be sent to him via e-mail to: “reply all” to this message will send the message to the same address), and they will be printed out and delivered during either on a visit or shortly after his release. 

Recommended Action 

First of all, please circulate this message and the information contained in it as widely as possible, not only through e-mail, but also on websites, social networks, conventional media, by word of mouth, etc.

Other recommendations for action:

1. Sending Letters of Support

Please send Ajuad Zidan letters of support to

2. Letters to Authorities

It is recommended to send letters of protest on the objectors’ behalf, preferably by fax, to:

    Mr. Ehud Barak,
    Minister of Defence,
    Ministry of Defence,
    Tel-Aviv 64743,
    E-mail: or
    Tel.: ++972-3-6975540 or ++972-3-6975423
    Fax: ++972-3-6976711

Copies of your letters can also be sent to the commander of the military prison at:

    Commander of Military Prison No. 4,
    Military Prison No. 4,
    Military postal number 02507, IDF
    Fax: ++972-3-957-52-76

Another useful address for sending copies would be the Military Attorney General (note updated fax number):

    Avichai Mandelblit,
    Chief Military Attorney
    Military postal code 9605, IDF
    Fax: ++972-3-569-45-26

It would be especially useful to send your appeals to the Commander of the Induction Base in Tel-HaShomer. It is this officer that ultimately decides whether an objector is to be exempted from military service or sent to another round in prison, and it is the same officer who is ultimately in charge of the military Conscience Committee:

    Gadi Agmon,
    Commander of Induction Base,
    Meitav, Tel-HaShomer
    Military Postal Code 02718, IDF
    Fax: ++972-3-737-60-52

For those of you who live outside Israel, it would be very effective to send protests to your local Israeli embassy. You can find the address of your local embassy on the web.

Here is a generic sample letter, which you can use in sending appeals to authorities on the prisoners’ behalf. Feel free to modify this letter or write your own:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    It has come to my attention that Ajuad Zidan from the town of Beit Jann, a conscientious objector to military service, has been repeatedly imprisoned for his refusal to become part of the Israeli army, and is held in Military Prison no. 4 near Tzrifin.

    The imprisonment of conscientious objectors such as Ajuad Zidan is a violation of international law, of basic human rights and of plain morals. This is especially clear in cases, such as Zidan’s, in which conscientious objectors are being sentenced more than once for their self-same decision to refuse enlistment.

    I therefore call for the immediate and unconditional release from prison of Ajuad Zidan, without threat of further imprisonment in the future, and urge you and the system you are heading to respect the dignity and person of conscientious objectors, indeed of all persons, in the future.


3. Letters to media in Israel and in other countries

Writing op-ed pieces and letters to editors of media in Israel and other countries could also be quite useful in indirectly but powerfully pressuring the military authorities to let go of the objectors and in bringing their plight and their cause to public attention.

Here are some contact details for the main media outlets in Israel:

    2 Karlibach st.
    Tel-Aviv 67132
    Fax: +972-3-561-06-14

    Yedioth Aharonoth:
    2 Moses st.
    Fax: +972-3-608-25-46

    Ha’aretz (Hebrew):
    21 Schocken st.
    Tel-Aviv, 61001
    Fax: +972-3-681-00-12

    Ha’aretz (English edition):
    21 Schocken st.
    Tel-Aviv, 61001
    Fax: +972-3-512-11-56

    Radio (fax numbers):

    Channel 10 +972-3-733-16-66

We will continue updating on further developments.

Thank you for your attention and action,

תקופת כליאה שנייה לסרבן אג’ואד זידאן

– אנא הפיצו בתפוצה רחבה –


הסרבן אג’ואד זידאן, בן 18 בן הקהילה הדרוזית מבית ג’אן, נידון ב-14/12 לעשרים ימי מחבוש על סירובו להתגייס. זוהי תקופת הכליאה השנייה שלו (לפני כן הוא נידון לעשרה ימי מחבוש ב-30/11, עונש שקוצר בפועל בכמה ימים בגלל פינוי כלא 6 בזמן השריפה בכרמל). הוא מוחזק כעת בכלא 4.

בידיעה שפורסמה בעיתון “אל איתיחאד” צוטט אג’ואן כאומר: “הבדידות של תא הכלא טובה אלף מונים מלעמוד מול בני עמי ולכוון לעברם רובה או להטיל עליהם עוצר”. נוסף על כך, אג’ואד מנמק את סירובו להתגייס גם בסירוב לשאת נשק ולהיות חלק מארגון צבאי באופן כללי.

אג’ואד צפוי להשתחרר מהכלא ב-30/12, וסביר שייכלא שוב לאחר מכן. המידע המלא על כליאתו של אג’ואד (והאישור לפרסם את עדכון הכלואים) הגיעו אלינו רק לאחרונה, ובשלב הנוכחי כבר אין טעם לשלוח מכתבים לכתובתו של אג’ואד בכלא (הוא ישתחרר לפני שהמכתבים יגיעו אליו). אולם, כתמיד, ניתן לשלוח אליו מכתבי תמיכה באימייל, לכתובת: (תשובות להודעה זו באמצעות כפתור “השב לכולם” יגיעו גם הן לאותה הכתובת), והמכתבים יועברו במהלך ביקור או זמן קצר לאחר שחרורו.

מה אפשר לעשות?
ראשית, אנא הפיצו הודעה זו ואת המידע הכלול בה בתפוצה רחבה ככל האפשר, לא רק באמצעות דואר אלקטרוני, אלא גם דרך אתרי אינטרנט, רשתות חברתיות, בתקשורת הקונבנציונלית, מפה לאוזן וכיו”ב. להלן עוד כמה סוגים של פעולות מומלצות.

1. אנא שלחו מכתבי תמיכה לאג’ואד לכתובת:

2. מכתבים לרשויות

מומלץ מאוד לשלוח מכתבי מחאה, רצוי בפקס, אל הגורמים הבאים:

    מר אהוד ברק, שר הביטחון
    משרד הביטחון
    תל-אביב 64743.
    טל’: 6975540 (03) או 6975423 (03)
    פקס: 6976711 (03)
    דוא”ל או

רצוי לשלוח העתקים למפקד הכלא, לכתובת:

    מפקד כלא 4 
    בס”כ 394 
    ד”צ 02507 
    פקס: 9575276 (03)

עוד כתובת שימושית למשלוח פניות היא הפרקליט הצבאי הראשי:

    אביחי מנדלבליט
    הפרקליט הצבאי הראשי
    מִפְקדת הפרקליטות הצבאית הראשית
    ד”צ 9605
    פקס: 5694526 (03)

חשוב במיוחד לשלוח מכתבי מחאה למפקד מיט”ב, כיוון שבידיו תימצא בסופו של דבר ההחלטה כמה פעמים נוספות ישבו הסרבנים\ות בכלא לפני שישוחררו סופית. אותו קצין אחראי גם להפעלתה של “וועדת המצפון”:

    גדי אגמון
    מפקד מיט”ב
    ד”צ 02718
    פקס: 7376052 (03)

להלן מכתב לדוגמה, שניתן להשתמש בו, או בטקסט שונה, במשלוח המכתבים. מומלץ בהחלט להכניס בנוסח שינויים לפי ראות עיניכם:


    נודע לי כי אג’ואד זידאן מבית ג’אן, סרבן מצפון לשירות צבאי, נשפט בשנית על סירובו להתגייס, ומוחזק בכלא 4 שבצריפין.

    כליאתם של סרבני מצפון דוגמת אג’ואד זידאן מהווה הפרה ברורה של החוק הבינלאומי ושל זכויות אדם בסיסיות. הדבר ברור במיוחד לאור העובדה שאג’ואד זידאן כבר נשפט על אותו מעשה עצמו – סירובו להתגייס – בעבר.

    על-כן אני פונה אליך בדרישה לשחרר את אג’ואד זידאן לאלתר, ולהימנע מכליאתו בעתיד. כמו כן, אני פונה אליך בדרישה שתפעל למניעת הישנותם של מקרים דומים. על המערכת שבראשה אתה עומד לנהוג להבא כבוד בסיסי בסרבניות וסרבני מצפון, ובכל באי עולם.


3. מכתבים לכלי תקשורת

כתיבה של מכתבים ומאמרי דעה בעיתונות והבעת דעה בעניין בתכניות מאזינים ברדיו יכולים לסייע למאמצינו להביא את עניינם של הכלואים לידיעת הציבור בארץ ולהפעיל לחץ, בעקיפין, אך ביעילות רבה, על רשויות הצבא להפסיק את כליאתם.

נמשיך לעדכן על התפתחויות נוספות.

Dedicated to the millions of comatose Americans who simply refuse to see themselves

By John Kaminski

You are the cause of the Iraq war, because you knew the newspapers were lying when they trumpeted that yellow cake uranium from the landlocked African nation of Niger was a reason to go to war, that Iraqi drones could bomb Long Island on an hour’s notice, and that the dictator Saddam was hiding “weapons of mass destruction” all over his oil-rich country.

You are the cause of that war and its three million dead because you didn’t call them on their lies, you just turned away and said something like “That’s just the way the government works . . .” or “That’s just the way it is.” When U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell brought “intelligence” before the world — yes, this is the famous Downing Street memo that everyone ignored — intelligence that was later proved to be a plagiarized, ten-year-old anonymous graduate school student’s thesis, revealing the U.S. government once again to be exposed as a liar to the whole world, you just turned your head away and said, “I have to go to work now.”

So now you’re wondering why your reality is vaporizing faster than your bank account, and I’m here to tell you — Look no further! We have found the cause. And it’s definitely you.

In the opinion of those who study what people know, chances are much better than average that you’re comatose intellectually and you don’t know it. When’s the last time you heard the words “honor” and “loyalty” on TV? The answer is never. When’s the last time you thought of this question? The answer is years ago.

All of this stuff going on in the world is your fault, because you haven’t said a word when you saw things that were wrong. You can make any defense you want, but the fact remains you didn’t do it. None of us did, until the proverbial obituary — it was too late to do anything about it. But even that excuse won’t wash.

And don’t say you weren’t in on it. Or go intellectual on us and say you protested this or that, and that was the best you could do. None of that stuff worked. It was a dog and pony show to vent the societal pressure so we could all go on ignoring the scam. Ignoring the mass murder for profit, which we, when we salute our flag, endorse . . . with tears in our eyes, even.

You are the cause of a young mother, Vicki Weaver, being shot in the head while holding her baby by FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi, who later received a commendation for his work. If you have never heard of Ruby Ridge, you simply are not fit to vote.

You are the cause of federal officials blowing up the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, an explosion supposedly happening OUTSIDE that blew the building OUTWARD, or toward the exact direction of the blast. But hey, physics never gets in the way of a good false flag op.

You are the cause of the barbecuing of women and children at Waco, when the government demonstrated that it could make up any story, avalanche it on the public, and get away with mass murder entirely on its own provocation.

You are the cause of the millions of American dead and billions of other categories of corpses because you supported a government without really knowing what it was doing — and you still do, in your own distinctive, seemingly critical and ultimately slavish way.

And all because, as you refused to turn away your gaze from the TV while you sipped on your beer, you refused to do the right thing, and instead chose to be the obnoxious animal, concerned with only your own titillation, that the forces of commerce and education had shaped you into being.

Hardly anybody ever noticed that that’s what happened to us, and they still don’t. They’re too busy absent mindedly munching popcorn and wondering how they’re going to pay their dental bills.

But the beast goes on, as they say, and each day it creeps closer to your house, inch by inch, paragraph by paragraph, chemtrail by chemtrail, and pill by pill.

You have failed to tell the truth when it mattered most.

This is the correct answer that you have failed, in your cowardice, to vocalize anywhere except in that dark secret place of your own fear.

The government’s explanation of what happened on 9/11 would get a failing grade in a high school theater class, simply for all its clumsy nonanswers. The question then poses itself: Who exactly are all those people who believed that story? What kind of people are they really? Do they believe what they say they believe, or are they just saying it? And more importantly, who were the people who didn’t believe that now-discredited official story, but kept their mouths shut, for one reason or another?

Answer? It was all of us. In those rocky days when Dubya in his bomber jacket stood in the rubble of the Twin Towers and said, “We gonna git them tirrirists,” the entire world stood in awe of Americans all lining up behind the flag like the melon people in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But the entire world soon averted its eyes when the U.S., with absolutely no evidence at all except the lame documentation assembled by its spinmasters, started bombing everything in sight, or, at least the places that had something the U.S. wanted to steal.

Those other terrorist “incidents” — London, Bali, Madrid, Yemen etc. — we’re all engineered by the new worldwide vigilante network, which is 1. Jewish bankers; 2. Jewish mobsters. 3. Jewish politicians. 4. Jewish media icons. 5. Jewish movie stars. 6. Jewish appointees, such as judges. 7. Jewish musicians. 8. Jewish counterculture leaders (now on the Supreme Court). 9. Jewish “educators.” and 10. Jewish sayanim, who have infiltrated every group on the planet and are flawlessly connected to the satanic succubus known as the worldwide Jewish crime network, a.k.a. B’nai B’rith and all the other demonic acronyms.

Because you have not been a patriotic American and seen this creeping encroachment on the American reality throughout the 20th century, this inexorable slide into filth, disease and betrayal on the part of the people whom we ourselves have chosen to lead us reveals a deep flaw in the beliefs we hold.

This is all your fault for not standing up for what you knew was right, at all times.

In my book, you’re a punk, not to be relied upon by anyone who seeks the higher truths, and you richly deserve the fate of the cannon fodder they’re about to turn you into.




First ever encyclopedia documenting the Gaza war released Sunday
December 27, 2010

by crescentandcross in Uncategorized  



Palestinian Information Center


The “creativity” studies and training foundation released Sunday the first ever electronic encyclopedia that documents Israel’s late 2008 early 2009 war on the Gaza Strip to mark the war’s second anniversary as it approaches.

The encyclopedia, dubbed “the Gaza Holocaust”, is the product of drawn out efforts by the foundation’s strategic research and studies center, said foundation head Mohammed al-Madhoun. “More than 120 of the foundation’s field researchers contributed to this remarkable work, as well as many more from research centers, rights foundations, and ministries.”

The idea, sparked at the time of Israel’s aggression, was to document the suffering and crimes that occurred during the war. “The encyclopedia contributes to the decay of Israel’s legitimacy in the framework of a battle that stripped Israel of its moral and humanitarian legitimacy.”

The reference book attempts to correct the past mistake of not recording Israel’s crimes. “The encyclopedia therefore protects history from being falsified, and provides a reliable reference with voice and picture.”

The name “the Gaza Holocaust” was part of the name battle that Israel had been playing in an attempt to monopolize names. The named heroic disaster was therefore named the holocaust.

Madhoun called on media agencies to deliver the encyclopedia to every household in the world. “The encyclopedia should be translated into English, and then continued to be developed and supported with more data and documents.”

He added that the reference followed a new approach in documenting history and building cases against criminals in light of the current information revolution.

    To be available for download (and further distribution) from my web site as soon as I can get my hands on it. In fact ALL of us should figure out how to make this available to as many people as possible (burn CD’s and hand them out at the local churches etc.)…that’s what I do with all the material I think people should have…I GIVE it to them

  3. Tell me how this is different from the Holocaust in Germany! No the zionists in Israhell didnt use gas chambers, they used white phosperous which burned victims to the bone. Of the 1400 slaughtered, most were women and children. As no press is permitted into Gaza (even today), no one knows how the Palestinans are dealing with life, without food, water, sewage, basic medicine….these Palestinans have every right to Jihad…and the world who knows the truth, should be calling on ALL governments to immediately send NATO troops to the borders and push these zionist bastards back over the 1967 border. We cannot permit the US government to send another penny to these zionist pigs who care not about human life. I look at this child under the rubble and think native americans destroyed by the european invaders…The Blue Coats of colonialism imperialism ride in Israel…only WE can stop them. I wait for Wiki to post the truth, some say wiki is a mossad operation. I dont believe that YET, but if nothing comes from WIKI about Israel soon, I will join the other chorus.
