I would like to see your tears, Obama, also for another citizen of your country, a kid named Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who was killed by your illegitimate orders. Until then, you and your government are outliers. Blessed be the victims, may God have mercy on their souls.
The misery and torment that befell Newton can be multiplied a thousand fold across the Arab world. American policy and actions have resulted in the deaths (i.e. murder) of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of innocent children. The deaths of these children can be considered as war crimes and a crime against humanity of the highest order. They should shock and outrage us, compelling us to demand an immediate change in American foreign policy.
The shocking reality is that many of the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip are a few miles away from the land of their ethnically cleansed former villages, across the border fence in southern Israel. Like so much else with Palestine, you can’t understand Gaza if you don’t understand the Nakba.
The lines are drawn. Morsi and the Brotherhood have been exposed as the heirs of the old dictatorship in new garb. The struggle for an open society is being waged by the betrayed on the streets of Egyptian cities. It will be a fight to the death. Brotherhood posters put up throughout Egypt in support of the pending constitution urge people to vote yes to “Supporting Legitimacy and Shariah [Islamic law].” Those who oppose legitimacy and Islamic law, it goes without saying, are heretics.
Is the true voice of Hamas discernable at this point? There seems to be a sharp contrast between the sweeping language of Meshaal’s words spoken at the anniversary demonstration in Gaza and his far calmer, focused, and accommodating tone in interviews and other statements during the last several years.
Human dignity for the Palestinian people is in the hands of the world in 2013. Barack Obama knows that he and his nation play an essential role in delivering that dignity to the Palestinian people. Benign neglect will not be his policy.
Lieberman and Netanyahu represent the worst of extremist governance. They’re hardcore racists. They’re ideologically anti-democratic. They believe Israel has a divine right to persecute, torture, commit naked aggression, and dominate the region unchallenged.
The direction: the difference between sea-to-river (Israel) and river-to-sea (Palestine) is not just political, and far from superficial. It goes right to the roots of the conflict.
Israel operated unaccountably for decades. How much more indiscriminate slaughter and mass destruction is tolerable. How many more years of Palestinian suffering will world leaders permit? How much longer can the ICC spurn its mandate? It’s time for all relevant stakeholders to step up to the plate and act responsibly.
Agent Cameron is very careful not to let the words ‘justice’ and ‘law’ pass his lips in connection with Israel’s illegal occupation of the Holy Land.
Lev Leviev’s companies have also been accused of involvement in human rights abuses and unethical business practices in the diamond industry in Angola, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
Charges that the war crimes includes torture, enforced disappearances, assassinations, murders, kidnappings, extraordinary renditions, ‘shock and awe’ (bombings), and (the use of) depleted uranium, white phosphorus, cluster bombs, drone strikes, and the like.
General Assembly has no legal right or basis to Partition any land, especially against the wishes of the majority population. Also, given that Israel did not meet Resolution 273′s “conditional” requirements for admission, its membership in the U.N. is illegal.
In confiscating fishing boats, Israel denies Gaza fishermen the right to livelihood by removing their means to make a living. The right to not to be arbitrarily deprived of property is protected under Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Palestinians of both factions (Hamas and Fateh), no matter how unified, will never succeed in re-framing the international discussion and “seizing their destiny” unless they undergo a crash course in media skills.
Netanyahu calls terrorism. His notion of peace is none at all. His idea of truth is avoid it. His governing style is hardline. His type security is naked aggression. Palestine’s liberation has miles to go. It’s well worth struggling for.
In light Khaled Meshal could respond to Netanyahu’s letter with these words: “No, prime minister, it is me who has to thank you for what you are doing to destroy your state!”
When it comes to criminal Israel, American nuclear hypocrisy go as far as criminalizing themselves by violating their own American laws to protect and support Israel financially, militarily, and politically.
The path to the Promised lands is the path that avoids wanton destruction of the kind the United States and Israel have wrought in the mid-east, where cooperation, compassion and concern for all is the peace all deserve.
Israel: It may well turn out that the victor of the elections, six weeks from now, will be Avigdor Lieberman, the man of the cold revenge. And that will be the beginning of a new chapter altogether.
Israel’s “Doomsday Settlement” on E1 “will render any prospective Palestinian contiguous state territorially impossible”. The tail of the snake coils around the northern part of Jerusalem, eating up rich Palestinian farm land, concluding west of Jerusalem.
Richard Falk, arose an urgent need to investigate Israel’s seemingly deliberate attacks against seemingly civilian targets during recent hostilities. It is clear that some attacks killed and harmed civilians in a grossly disproportionate manner and thus clearly appear to violate international law.
95% of the entire world rebuked and expressed their long held anger against U.S. and Israel. The world is slowly finding its voice, its courage, its humanitarian conscience to tell Israel and the U.S.: “Enough is Enough” of your murderous atrocities, ethnic cleansing, and theft and illegal occupation of a nation—Palestine.
No longer can it run to the US veto to maintain impunity in crime, no longer must the people of Palestine be ignored, no longer can this world body live with the lies, the distortions, the deceit used by the Jewish nation to control all the peoples of the earth.
Civil society calls for trade sanctions but Hague says EU has ‘no enthusiasm’. Now he shames us again by shirking firm action against the racist Israel’s endless land thieving and general lawlessness.
It’s the entire planet on one side, versus the US, its new right-wing poodle to the north, Israel, and three tiny, bribed islands on the other side.
Prof. Boyle – Arafat and PA Legal Advisor – says: “Palestinians will start a “legal intifada” against Israel, supported by international law. I have already recommended to them, over in Ramallah.”
Can the old leadership really lead the Palestinians to freedom from occupation, justice for the refugees and equal rights for the Palestinian citizens of Israel? Can it take advantage of the ICC and ICJ, and other UN conventions and bodies to protect its waters, airspace and people? The jury is out.
Infograph to illustrate and explain how Israel’s settlement demographic changes within the West Bank obstruct the possibility of the two-state solution. The numbers suggest that Abbas’ bid to the United Nations was too little, too late.
There is a complete imbalance of power between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel is the only party between the river and the sea which is able, through the use of unchecked force, to alter the physical landscape by building and expanding settlements, supported unjustly by United States.
Israel’s largest newspaper, Yedioth Aharonot, claimed “diplomatic sources said both London and Paris were considering the unprecedented step of recalling their ambassadors to Tel Aviv.
Why should Palestinians have to negotiate over Israel’s unlawful acts and haggle for their property in rigged talks when there’s proper recourse to the law? Israel’s pimps and hirelings are now exposed. No wonder the Zionist regime and its spin-masters are in such a flap.
Obama orders land, sea and air invasion of israel. Us sixth fleet wiped out by israeli planes, ships and subs. Israeli amphibious assault on washington dc successful. Israeli flag flies over the us capitol building.
There is not a government on the planet today more supportive of Israel than Harper’s Canada. Israel Hayom, Israel’s largest circulation daily newspaper, said: “When he discusses the Palestinian issue, Baird sounds like he could have voted in this week’s Likud primaries.”
The US and Israel could end the merciless unremitting assault and open the borders, and provide for reconstruction – and if it were imaginable, reparations for decades of violence and repression in Palestine.
