Nazi Soldiers Kill A Palestinian Teen In Jerusalem

Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

Nazi soldiers shot and killed, on Monday evening, a young Palestinian man near Bab Hutta Gate, in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem, after he reportedly ‘opened fire’ at them.

The slain Palestinian was later identified as Mahmoud Omar Sadeq Kamil, 17, from Qabatia town, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

One Nazi soldier was mildly injured when he fell while chasing the Palestinian, and was moved to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Palestinian worshippers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque said they heard the shots before dozens of Nazi soldiers stormed the courtyards of the holy site and were extensively deployed around it after closing all of its gates, preventing the residents from entering or leaving it.

Dozens of Nazi police and security officers also arrived at the scene and installed many iron barriers to close the area.

The Nazi Police also stopped and interrogated dozens of young Palestinian men in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa and near it, in addition to assaulting and violently searching some of them.

On Monday at night, the soldiers invaded Qabatia town, before storming the home of Omar Kamil, the father of the slain teen, searched the property, and summoned him for interrogation in Salem military base and security center, west of Jenin.

Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

Palestinian medical sources said a man was injured, Monday, after an illegal Nazi Jewish colonist rammed him with his car, east of Sa’ir town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The sources said that man, Sobhi Mohammad Abdul-Fattah Shalalda, 32, suffered various cuts and bruises to different parts of his body, when the colonist rammed him with his car east of Sa’ir.

The Nazi assailant is from the illegal Afsar (also known as Metzad) Nazi Jewish colony, built on Palestinian lands owned by the villagers of al-Qanoub, east of Sa’ir.

Shalalda received treatment by Palestinian Red Crescent medics, who were called to the scene, before they moved him to the Hebron Governmental Hospital, suffering moderate wounds.

The incident took place on a bypass road, one of the numerous roads used by illegal Nazi Jewish colonists, and witness dozens of similar incidents over the years.

Also on Monday, Nazi Jewish colonists carried out dozens of attacks against the Palestinians and their cars in various main roads in the occupied West Bank, resulting in damage to scores of cars, and the injury of at least three Palestinians near Nablus, in northern West Bank.

The attacks took place near Nablus, Qalqilia, Hebron, and various other areas in the West Bank.

Dozens of colonists also closed the Deir Sharaf village junction, west of Nablus, Huwwara junction, south of Nablus, Kidumim junction near Qalqilia, and started throwing rocks at the Palestinians and their vehicles, causing damage to dozens of vehicles, and injured at least three Palestinians.

Press Release: Nazi forces carry out a land incursion and threaten to remove Palestinian farmers’ crops

Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

Al Mezan condemns the act and calls for international intervention – Al Mezan Center For Human Rights 18-12-2020 14:01On Wednesday morning, 16 December 2020, Israeli military bulldozers crossed the perimeter fence into the Gaza Strip, east of Khan Younis, reaching up to 200 meters into agricultural lands in Abasan al-Kabira, Khuza’a, and al-Fukhari. For hours, Israeli troops razed and leveled Palestinian lands and crops—some of which had been prepared for planting—and eventually left placards written in both Arabic and Hebrew demanding that the Palestinian farmers uproot their crops in the area “within a certain time frame” otherwise the military “is going to remove them.”

During a similar incident on Thursday, 17 December 2020, farmers in the Rafah district also reported that they had found similar placards on their farmlands located 100 meters from the perimeter fence.

Israel, the Occupying Power, continues to carry out land incursions and to maintain its closure policy over the Gaza Strip even against the backdrop of the COVID-19 global health crisis and related concerns for the financial situation and food insecurity in the Strip, directly violating its obligation to protect the human rights of civilians in the occupied Gaza Strip.

These regular incursions and movement restrictions in the Israeli-imposed buffer zone in Gaza are not only life-threatening, but they also severely harm the livelihoods of thousands of Palestinian farmers. For instance, Israel periodically conducts aerial spraying of herbicides over Palestinian farmlands to destroy vegetation adjacent to the perimeter fence and has often employed lethal force to ward off farmers. At a time when families across the whole Gaza Strip are at higher risk of food insecurity and poverty, the impact of Israel’s relentless attacks on farmlands in the buffer zone has increased.

Al Mezan strongly condemns Israel’s targeting of Palestinian farmers and warns of the grave repercussions it has on their lives, most notably, the role such attacks play in stifling the Strip’s economic development and exacerbating the dire living conditions of Gaza’s population, especially during the pandemic.

Accordingly, Al Mezan calls on the international community to uphold its moral and legal obligations towards the Palestinian people by exerting pressure on Israel to cease all the attacks against Palestinian farmers and lift the blockade and closure unilaterally imposed on the Gaza Strip, in addition to ensuring accountability for all suspected violations of international law perpetrated in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Hundreds of Israelis disrupt prayers in oldest Christian monastery In Palestine

The Greek Orthodox monastery of St Sabbas, also known as Mar Saba, overlooks the Kidron Valley in the West Bank, south of Bethlehem. (imemc.org)

Hundreds of Israeli assailants strive to intimidate monks who gathered to pray at Saint Saba Monastery in a deliberate attempt to stop the prayers.

Reposted from International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC):

Hundreds of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers gathered, Thursday, near Mar Saba (St. Saba) Christian Monastery, east of the Palestinian city of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem, and attempted to disrupt prayers.

Hundreds of colonists descended to the ancient holy site, the older Christian Monastery in occupied Palestine, during the celebration of the feast of St. Saba, eyewitnesses said.

They added that the Israeli assailants then attempted to intimidate the monks who gathered there to pray, in a deliberate attempt to stop the prayers.

Palestinian Christian groups denounced the serious violation, especially since such violations continue to be ignored by countries around the world, while the so-called Christian-Zionist groups that provide cover for Israel’s constant violations, crimes, and intimidation targeting the Palestinians, both Muslims and Christians, and their holy sites, in occupied Palestine.

Background: Al-Monitor: At the foot of a mountain peak in the Kidron Valley desert, the Mar Saba Monastery sits 1,500 meters (roughly a mile) away from the town of al-Obeydiyya, east of Bethlehem.

The monastery dates back to the fifth century. Saint Saba, among other monks, founded it in 484 based on a unique engineering plan to become one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world.

The monastery is one of the most prominent Palestinian archaeological monuments. It is surrounded by magnificent natural sceneries showing the twists and turns of the valley.

An 18-meter (59 feet) high tower called the Justinian Tower was erected next to the monastery in the sixth century and was used for observation.

It is time for President Moshe Abbas to step down

It is time for President Moshe Abbas to step downBy Mahmoud El-YoussephNovember 24, 2020It is time overdue for President Moshe Abbas to step down as the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA ) and let someone else lead. In addition to being an old, sick, and incompetent leader, he also lacks courage and integrity. At a time when Palestinians are starving under siege, in camps, and under occupation, Abbas refused to take $750 million dollars in taxes waiting at the Israeli Finance Ministry that Israel collected on behalf of the PA.

Reason? He demanded Israel must first agree it will not annex the West Bank. Seriously? This man is dumb as a rock. He does not care about the needs of the Palestinian people. Abbas has the audacity to ask the EU for a loan at the same time he refused to collect money (60 million/month in collected taxes) from Israel that is intended to aid the people of Palestine.

At the same time, the PA has dropped the salaries of Palestinian public servants (135,000) to 50%. Then he has the nerve to approve a 67% pay increase for his cronies last year despite the West Bank economic crunch.Since Abbas’ term expired on January 9, 2009, so he is not really a legitimate president. Not only did Abbas give up his right to his return back to his birthplace, the city of Safad, but he also betrayed the Palestinian refugees by giving up (without a mandate) on their rights to return to their homes from which they were forced to leave at gunpoint.

A few days ago, the PA suddenly resumed civil and security coordination with Israel after six months of suspension. What did the Abbas gain out of that? Nothing zip zero!Let us not forget that both Abbas and Mo Dahlan were implicated in the poisoning of Chairman Arafat. Both men also have a hand in the 2002 Israeli assassination of Sheikh Salah Shahada in Gaza. I still remember that day on the morning of July 23rd when Sheikh Salah was targeted by an Israel missile attack that killed him and another 15 people and injured 145 more. Among the people who were killed were 9 children, aged between two months and 13 years.

Abbas and Dahlan are both on record accusing each other of helping Israel in tracking down Sk. Shahada’s movement in Gaza.Abbas is notorious for killing and imprisoning his critics and he acts as subservient to the occupation by aiding the IDF in killing and rearresting freed Palestinian fighters who were freed by Israel during the POW exchange.

He even put the name of two Palestinian activists Nidal Hamad and Mahmoud Attayah on his shit list and shamelessly asked Israel and the US State Department to help silence them along with a few other Palestinians. It worth noting here that Nidal Hamad who lives in Norway has lost one of his legs during a battle in Beirut while fighting the Israeli invading army in 1982. Fortunately, neither the US nor Israel honored Abbas’s request.I hope Mahmoud Abbas suffers the same fate as Romania’s dictator Nicolae Ceausescu unless Allah wishes differently. It is time for President Moshe Abbas to go!

Zionist Trump’s Legitimization of the Nazi Occupation

Trump’s Legitimization of Occupation

Palestine Center Brief No. 307 

By Mohamed Mohamed

Every six months since 1995, American presidents have signed a waiver delaying the implementation of a law which requires the U.S. embassy to be relocated to Jerusalem, since doing so would destabilize the region further, which in turn harms U.S. national security interests.

President Donald Trump issued the waiver in June, but insisted that he will eventually move the embassy as promised during his election campaign. Monday, December 4 was the latest deadline, but the White House made no announcement about whether or not the waiver was signed.

This raised concern among Palestinians and others throughout the world, including European allies of Israel, that Trump may indeed alter the status of Jerusalem by recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the city. Israel annexed Jerusalem illegally under international law, which is why no country in the world recognizes it as the Israeli capital and why all embassies are in Tel Aviv.

Reports emerged on Tuesday that Trump informed Arab and Israeli leaders that he plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The President’s predecessors, both Democrat and Republican, have always signed the waiver and upheld the consensus on Jerusalem’s status, but Trump seems to be set on deviating from this longstanding policy and living up to his reputation as an unconventional president.

The status of Jerusalem is one of the most contentious issues of the conflict, and recognizing the city as Israel’s capital is an absolute deal-breaker for Palestinians. Anyone with basic knowledge of the conflict knows this. It is such a cornerstone of their struggle that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, usually bitter rivals, have expressed solidarity on this issue in a rare phone call between their leaders.

To make matters worse, legitimizing the occupation of Jerusalem provides implicit support for Israeli settlements, since there are now over 200,000 settlers colonizing Palestinian land in East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law and pose a huge problem for Palestinians, so any endorsement of the Israeli settler-colonial project is also a deal-breaker.

Even if Trump were to backtrack and maintain the status quo, it is astonishing that he would so much as hint at making such a move after claiming to be committed to brokering the “ultimate deal” that would resolve the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Clearly, he has never been serious about this.

Obviously, recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital marks an unprecedented shift in U.S. policy, but it is important to note that from presidents Truman to Trump, the U.S. has never actually been an “honest broker” of peace between Palestinians and Israelis. On the contrary, the U.S. has provided exceptional diplomatic, economic, and military support to Israel ever since its creation in 1948.

For example, even though the official American position on Israeli settlements in Jerusalem and the West Bank is that they are illegal, the U.S. has never taken any meaningful steps to hold Israel accountable for its continued and increasing settlement of Palestinian land. The most it has done was under the final month of President Obama’s tenure, when it abstained from a UN vote calling on Israel to cease settlement activity. But only months before, the Obama administration had approved a record military aid package to Israel worth $38 billion, including the sale of advanced F-35 fighter jets (the first foreign country to receive them).

Clearly, American presidents and officials have failed miserably as impartial mediators in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict over the past 70 years. The latest reports of Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt. Palestinians and the Palestinian leadership must recognize this fact, and they must abandon all attempts to pursue justice through American channels, which have been entirely fruitless. Otherwise, they will be wasting their time and efforts. Surely there will be a major backlash to this decision that will probably lead to violence at some point, but the Israeli and U.S. governments will have no one to blame but themselves. You reap what you sow.

Double Standards of the Dishonest Brokers

Palestine Center Brief No. 340 

By Mohamed Mohamed

On May 28, China’s parliament passed a national security law for Hong Kong that China claims will confront “secession, subversion, terrorism, and foreign interference.”

As someone who is not a China or Hong Kong observer, I cannot comment on the merits, or lack thereof, of this law.

However, I can certainly comment on the double standards and hypocrisy of the US government and its allies.

Shortly after China passed the law on Hong Kong, the US, UK, Canada, and Australia issued a joint statement condemning it. They said that “China’s decision to impose the new national security law on Hong Kong lies in direct conflict with its international obligations.”

They also expressed their “deep concern regarding Beijing’s decision to impose a national security law in Hong Kong.” They add that the law “does nothing to build mutual understanding and foster reconciliation within Hong Kong.”

At first glance, one might think that the US and its allied governments are benevolent states with deep compassion for oppressed people.

But where is their condemnation and “deep concern” when it comes to Israel’s oppression of Palestinians? Where is their concern for “mutual understanding” and “reconciliation” between Palestinians and Israelis? The fact is, they do not exist.

In 1948, when Israel declared its independence by force, it caused the expulsion of more than 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland. Later that year, the UN General Assembly issued Resolution 194, which called on Israel to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their homes. To this day, Israel has not only failed to comply with this international resolution, but it has also explicitly stated that the Palestinian right of return is out of the question.

In 1967, Israel initiated a war and invaded the West Bank, Gaza, Egypt, and Syria. This created another wave of Palestinian displacement and refugees, and shortly after, the UN Security Council issued Resolution 237, which again called on Israel to allow the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes. Unsurprisingly, Israel did not comply. Later in the year, the UN Security Council also issued Resolution 242, which called on Israel to fully withdraw from the territories that it acquired by force.

More than half a century later, Israel continues to illegally occupy the Palestinian West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Syrian Golan Heights, and has maintained a near-total land, sea, and air siege of the Gaza strip.

Collective punishment of occupied peoples, the theft and destruction of their territories and private property, and their detention without due process are all forbidden under international law, but Israel violates these rules daily.

In 2011, Israel passed the “Admissions Committees Law,” which allows residents of small towns to prevent individuals “who do not suit the lifestyle and social fabric of the community” from residing in these towns. In practice, this law primarily targets Palestinian citizens of Israel.

In July of 2018, the Israeli Knesset passed the “Israel as the Nation State of the Jewish People” bill into law, which declared that only Jewish people have the “right to exercise national self-determination in the State of Israel.”

Israel has plenty of other discriminatory laws that are too many to name here. But for more than 72 years, the US and its allies have barely condemned, if at all, Israel’s blatant discrimination and tyranny toward Palestinians.

The fact of the matter is that these world powers do not care about “international obligations” or principles of human rights. They only express “concern” when the country in question is a rival such as China. When it is an ally such as Israel, there will be nothing but silence.

It is also important to note that even though Hong Kong is a “special administrative region” of China, it enjoys a significant level of political and economic autonomy. It is not under military occupation, as is the case with the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

The US and its allies are exposing their hypocrisy. They are quick to criticize China’s law on Hong Kong, but they show a flagrant disregard for international law and human rights when it comes to Israel.

USA-‘ Israel’ Police Brutality

Police Brutality: From Israel to the US

Palestine Center Brief No. 340 (June 9, 2020)

By Mohamed Mohamed

Parts of American cities are in chaos right now. As everyone knows, the current protests and turmoil in the US were triggered by the murder of an unarmed and restrained black man, George Floyd, at the hands of police officers in the city of Minneapolis.

People throughout the US and the rest of the world are shocked at the brutality and excessive force used by the police officers responsible for Floyd’s death. Of course, any decent person with a conscience would be sickened by such cruelty. But while they are appalled, Palestinians are not surprised.

Why? Because Palestinians have endured similar force and oppression at the hands of Israel for more than 70 years.

In 1948, Zionist terrorists invaded the land of Palestine and expelled more than 750,000 Palestinians from their homes. They terrorized them, they killed women, children, and the elderly, and they committed massacres in numerous Palestinian villages. The few Palestinians who were able to stay are now treated as second-class citizens at best, and they face even worse discrimination than African Americans in the US.

In 1967, Israel initiated a war and invaded the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, as well as the Syrian Golan Heights and the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. To this day, the Palestinian and Syrian territories are either under Israeli military occupation, or under a near-total siege as is the case in Gaza.

Israel denies these Palestinians the most basic of human rights, which should be guaranteed under international law. They do not enjoy the right to freedom of movement. They are routinely subjected to unlawful surveillance, searches, and seizures. They are often shot, killed, and maimed for very trivial reasons or for no reason at all. Israel and Israeli settlers regularly confiscate their land and private property. They do not have decent access to basic resources such as water, and they do not even have access to quality healthcare.

And as is the case with George Floyd and many others like him, Palestinians have been subjected to racial profiling, torture, and extrajudicial killings. The list of abuses goes on and on, and they are frequent. In fact, on May 30, Israeli police officers in Jerusalem shot and killed Iyad Hallak, an unarmed young man with autism. Israeli police claim they suspected he was carrying a weapon, so they ordered him to stop. Hallak panicked and ran away, and one of the Israeli officers shot him twice in his torso and ended his life.

But there is another important reason why Palestinians are not surprised by police brutality in the US. In order to maintain its lethal grip on Palestinians for the past seven decades, Israel has honed its skills in subjugation and torture. It has marketed and exported its violent tactics to many countries, and sadly, the US has gladly imported its ruthless methods.

In fact, thousands of members of law enforcement in the US have received training in “crowd control, use of force, and surveillance” from Israel. This training has been conducted here in the US, in Israel, and even in the occupied Palestinian territories. This makes them complicit sponsors of Israeli crimes against humanity.

In a 2016 report, the human rights organization Amnesty International wrote that American law enforcement personnel were placed in the hands of Israeli “military, security and police systems that have racked up documented human rights violations for years,” and it describes Israel as a “chronic human rights violator.” Other orgs have documented this.

It is very telling that many US law enforcement departments choose to learn and train in subjugation tactics from Israel, because it is a country known for its ruthless and unrestrained violent methods against the Palestinian people under its occupation.

During the first and second Intifadas (uprisings) in Palestine in 1988 and 2000, Israel responded to Palestinians protesting military occupation with tremendous force. Thousands lost their lives and tens of thousands were wounded. It seems that America is going through an Intifada of its own, but hopefully it will not lead to the same loss of life that occurred in Palestine.

American law enforcement’s collaboration with Israel in learning the policing tactics that led to Floyd’s death is abhorrent, but there is hope for the future. In 2018, the city of Durham in the state of North Carolina became the first American city to ban police from training in Israel. This is encouraging, and hopefully all cities in the US will follow suit soon.

A step in the right direction is to discontinue this training cooperation with Israel and to hold American police officers to a much higher moral standard. After all, the purpose of police anywhere is “to protect and serve,” not to torture and kill.
