Targeting of Gaza’s unprotected and undefended civilian homes from high altitudes is the ultimate expression of cowardliness and callousness. Hence, the wanton, unbridled brutal aggression on the thoroughly tormented, thoroughly blockaded and bombed out Gazans.
The Jewish settlers murder in cold blood, steal in broad daylight and lie as often as they breathe the oxygen of life, all in the name of the Lord.
Fanatical Jews hone in on Al-Aqsa while Abbas seeks UN recognition for Palestine. In both directions, tensions rise. This week, Israeli authorities allowed a large number of fanatical Jewish settlers to enter and tour Al-Aqsa Mosque’s esplanade. The settlers, dressed in religious attire and wearing kippa head-caps, were protected by a heavy police presence.
Israeli sources said the aim of the provocative intrusion into one of Islam’s holiest sites was to “assert Jewish rights in the Temple Mount”, using the Jewish name for the Haram Al-Sharif — or Noble Sanctuary — of Jerusalem.
The official added that Israel wants to see the PA perpetually busy and occupied with its internal political and economic problems which would give Israel a sort of carte blanche to pursue its settlement scheme. Israel is interested in weakening the PA regime, but never in destroying it.
Protesters, who are not affiliated with a single political faction, are vowing to keep up the pressure until their demands are met. Their demands include the sacking of the Fayyad government and the annulment of the 1994 Paris Economic Protocol, which critics say put the entire Palestinian economy at Israel’s mercy.
Is it a pre-condition to recognize Israel in order to govern? This is not possible, no matter what the circumstances are. We don’t recognize Israel at all. It is a criminal occupier.
Burning mosques, burning vehicles, settlers appear to have a blank cheque to harass and aggress Palestinians, writes Khaled Amayreh in occupied Jerusalem.
As Israeli Jewish terrorist attacks on mosques in occupied Palestine are assuming a phenomenal frequency. Indeed, with the Israeli government and security establishment doing next to nothing to put an end to this wanton and unprovoked terror, a huge fire is being started in the region.
Israel’s worst fears regarding its relationship with the Arab world — and with Egypt in particular — are coming true before our eyes. The rise of the Islamists in Egypt means the end of the peace treaty with Egypt and the rise of a government committed to the ideological Islamist goal of the destruction of Israel.
In a cheap effort to procure Jewish votes and money, Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has claimed that the Palestinian people is an invented people.
Israel wants him to kiss the paramount right of return for the refugees goodbye, wants him to forget East Jerusalem, and wants him to formally accept perpetual Israeli control over Palestinian borders, water resources as well as the settlements established by Israel on occupied Arab land since 1967.
The imminent release of some 1030 Palestinians from Israeli bastilles, dungeons and concentration camps is a definitive victory for Palestine and its struggling people by all conceivable standards.
Obama’s excessive praise of Israel caricatured an insecure president that fears telling the truth, a leader that shakes at the very thought of uttering the “wrong words” even when these wrong words happen to represent the heart, soul and essence of the truth.
There is a zero per cent probability that negotiations with Israel, even if such negotiations lasted for a hundred years, would achieve positive results.
Hence, the remaining alternative is that the Palestinian people must act independently, even unilaterally to achieve their legitimate goals. After all, If Israel acts unilaterally as it has been doing since its misbegotten creation 63 years ago, why shouldn’t we.
New U.S. formula: Palestinian recognition of the “Jewishness” of Israel in exchange for an American endorsement of a Palestinian “state” on unspecific parts of the West Bank and few scattered neighborhoods of occupied East Jerusalem.
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual mentor of the religious fundamentalist party, Shas, which represents Middle Eastern Jews, reportedly said during a Sabbath homily earlier this week that “Non-Jews were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world-only to serve the People of Israel. They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money.”
Israelis, often thoroughly absorbed in their collective sanctimony and self-righteousness, seem never to stop repeating the eternal mantra that the Jews are a “light unto the nations” and Israel is “the only democracy in the Middle East”. This week, several events occurring in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories highlighted the stark gap between what Israelis think about themselves and the reality.
By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz With the Arab world and Palestinian Authority seemingly caught in a spiral of weakness and vacillation, and the Obama administration unwilling or unable to pressure Israel, the Israeli government has allowed anti-peace Jewish settlers to embark on all-out drive to build as many settler units as possible.

By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The prevailing disputation over the right of Muslim Americans to build a community centre and mosque a short distance from the site of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks has garnered plenty of headlines in the past few days. The controversy calls for an honest reappraisal of [...]
By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The cruel Israeli regime is organizing a fresh campaign to demand the release of one of its occupation soldiers, detained in a secret Gaza location.

By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Zionist supremacists from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles are ganging up on two elderly targets these days. The first is the 84-year-old Fidel Castro, a man who apparently made up his mind about Zionism more than six decades ago. And the second is 89-year-old veteran American journalist [...]
By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz While the Palestinian Authority (PA) seems prone to agree to “indirect talks” with Israel without the latter undertaking any meaningful freeze of Jewish settlement expansion in the West Bank, the Israeli government is making only provocations, rendering the resumption – let alone success – of peace talks [...]
By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Zionist spin doctors are visibly upset by growing world awareness about the manifestly cruel Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip. These malicious propagandists, hell-bent as they are on diverting attention from the slow-motion genocide being meted out to the helpless people of Gaza, are asking “why not [...]
Israel Admits Stealing Palestinian Organs “If such is what they are willing to admit, imagine how much they are concealing,” Knesset member Teibi told IOL. By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz OCCUPIED JERUSALEM — For the first time, Israel has tacitly admitted stealing Palestinian body parts for transplant in Jewish patients, vindicating accusations [...]
One Year on Gaza Massacre By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The international community’s shaming silence has done nothing to stop the Israeli intentional attempts to kill life in Gaza.

By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz The recent arrest warrant issued in London for former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni is more than justified.

Palestinians and Arabs Should Be More Responsible By Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz Foreign ministers of the 27 member states of the European Union (EU) have unanimously adopted a resolution or “policy statement”calling for the creation of a Palestinian state with East (Al-Quds) Jerusalem as its capital.

By Khalid Amayreh | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz In a recent article in the New York Times, the American Jewish journalist Thomas Friedman blamed the so-called Arab-Islamic “Narrative” for all the troubles surrounding US-Muslim relations-from the 9-11 terrorist events in 2001 to the recent killing of 13 American soldiers in Texas by American-born and American-bred [...]

BY Khalid Amayreh* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz There seems to be a perfect conformity between Gabi Ashkenazi and his last name. The Israeli chief of staff is considered one of the main Israeli war criminals responsible for the virtual genocide against the Gaza Strip during the past winter. On his murderous hands, he carries [...]

Futility Much Anticipated With Israel’s Occupation By Khalid Amayreh * In a measure that has already vexed the internal Palestinian political arena, Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmud Abbas has called for “presidential and legislative elections” to be held in the Occupied Territories of the West Bank, East Al-Quds and the Gaza Strip on January 24, [...]
By Khalid Amayreh * In its rabid efforts to whitewash the Goldstone report, Israel is likely to carry out another disingenuous probe into its genocidal onslaught against the Gaza Strip nearly ten months ago.
