This morning in Hebron, a six-year-old Palestinian boy was attacked by colonial settlers. Whadye Maswdye was walking on Shuhada street with his small dog and some of the family sheep, when a male settler took young Whadye by the neck and slapped him in the face several times. Witnesses reported that the soldiers present at the scene were more interested in preventing the father of Whadye, that had in the meantime arrived to the place, to reach the settlers, than to stop the actual abuse. ISM volunteers asked a local shop owner who witnessed the episode if anything happened to the settler who attacked young Whadye. He stated: “No, nothing happened to him, they (the settlers) can do whatever they want. If I just threw a stone at a settler I would go to prison for at least six months, imagine what would happen if I beat one of them like this? There is no justice here.”via ISM

On 5 November 1951, Yaakov Hazan of Mapam said in the Knesset: “Nazism is rearing its ugly head again in Germany, and our so-called Western ‘friends’ are nurturing that Nazism; they are resurrecting Nazi Germany …. Our army , the Israel Defense Forces, will be in the same camp as the Nazi army, and the Nazis will begin infiltrating here not as our most terrible enemies, but rather as our allies … “Prophetic words as the Germans helped finance the new Zionist State with Holocaust “reparations” …

"In calling any critic of Israel anti-Semitic, many Jews are acting irresponsibly. They make the fight against real anti-Semitism less effective and look downright silly, as if the insult of “anti-Semitism” was a cheap trick to silence the universalist critics of Israel."

Raed Abdel-Salam Al-Jabari, a Palestinian prisoner held in an Israeli jail has died as a result of severe torture at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces, the head of Prisoners and Freed Prisoners Affairs in Ramallah Issa Qaraqe said. 

Qaraqe accused Israel of committing two crimes against Jabari, 35, when the Israeli authorities claimed that he had hanged himself in prison in an attempt to hide the real reason for his death, torture. 

Al-Jabari was imprisoned on July 26 in Eshel prison. 

Speaking during a press conference in Hebron, Qaraqe said: “Jabari’s autopsy report, which was conducted at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Abu Dis, revealed that he had been subjected to severe torture which resulted in internal bleeding and severe concussion that led to his death. 

He stressed that “Jabari’s autopsy results did not reveal any marks around the neck which refutes the Israeli claim that he had hanged himself.” 

Qaraqe had previously said that several prisoners who were imprisoned with Al-Jabari testified that he was severely beaten by the Nahshon forces when he was transferred to Eshel prison

At the height of the First Intifada in 1987, when Israel’s cruelty was on full display and was broadcast to the world, Henry Kissinger traveled to Israel to advise the Israelis on how to deal with the Intifada. He did not ask them to be humane or cut back on their brutality, on the contrary, he advised them to crush the Intifada, but that they first must block all media access (a news blackout) and remove the Palestinian struggle for freedom and the “bone breaking” (Then Israeli defense Minister Rabin had promised that he would break the bones of the Palestinians. He kept his promise,) tactics of the Israelis from the prying eyes of the Media … 

With the advent of the Internet and Social Networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, Henry Kissinger’s criminal advise is no longer viable. We are the vigil eyes and ears of the Palestinian struggle, and it is our job, to make sure that injustice, brutality, and oppression are exposed wherever and whenever they rear their ugly heads!

Funny sad picture of the world of darkness. "chosen people" …

Quote
"Every day is a struggle. I have to be honest with all of you. It is not normal to see what I see and to experience the great suffering of others. To hold them when they feel no hope - to listen to horrific stories - to cling to hope when my friends struggle with depression and grief.
It takes two cups of coffee and prayer and a knowing that the sun will rise again in this place and replace the dark night.
When I see the children on their way to school and when I see mothers kiss them on their heads as they run out the door - I am strengthened - I am filled with hope and with joy.
The sun shines bright above me and the new day begins …"

Sabrine’s school is one of 20 UNRWA schools in Gaza still being used as collective shelters for over 52,000 internally displaced Palestinian civilians.

Quote
"People call Gaza a hotbed of terror, neglecting, or perhaps refusing to see that people in Gaza are attempting, albeit in all futility, to resist the terror under which they are forced to live. Close to one million of Gaza’s 1.4 million residents are refugees or descendents of refugees forced out of their homes from other parts of Palestine only to be imprisoned and impoverished in Gaza. In The Roadmap to Nowhere Tanya Reinhart writes: “Since 1967, 280,000 people in Gaza have passed through Israeli prisons, detention cells and interrogation rooms.” The connection can not be overlooked: Residents of Gaza have made a name for themselves in resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestine even before 1967 and they ‘ll have paid dearly for this resistance."

In wake of Gaza slaughter, US Senate unanimously passes bill to increase arms to Israel 

Children killers, their using all this money and weapons on a population that mostly children, taking others home land is not enough, abuse from the illegal military occupation is not enough either, this is sad how they can do whatever they want to whomever they want . They ignore the everyday assaults / abuse committed by IOF and Settlers, and continue aiding them.

The Palestinian people have to struggle against two occupations. The first being the Israeli occupation and the second being the PA occupation. The PA serves one function and that function is of a collaborator. They have turned the West Bank into the only prison in the world that is guarded by its prisoners. I can only hope that their tyranny will soon come to an end…!
