"It's the occupation and Israeli bigotry that are anti-Semitic" by Larry Derfner

Gaza 2012 What we do to the Palestinians and Israeli Arabs – in the last two days, for example – has caused more damage to the Jewish people than anything since the Holocaust.

Who knows? Maybe the Jordanian judge, Raed Zueter, killed by Israeli soldiers Monday, went mad from grief over his critically ill 5-year-old son lying in a coma, and really did attack the troops, and maybe they truly had no choice but to kill him in self-defense. Or maybe there was no such attack, maybe there was just an argument and the soldiers got a little trigger happy, not for the first time. Reportedly, there are eyewitness accounts for both versions of what happened at the Allenby (or King Hussein) Bridge border crossing from Jordan into the West Bank yesterday. …

Petition: Suspend the Israeli Football Association's FIFA membership

Suspend the Israeli Football Association's FIFA membership Membership of the Israeli Football Association (IFA) should be suspended until Israel respects the human rights of Palestinians and observes international law, thus enabling Palestinian footballers to play and compete nationally and internationally.

Since 1967, Israel has maintained a brutal military occupation of Palestine, building illegal settlements and a separation wall on stolen land, despite condemnation by the UN and International Court of Justice. Within Israel, over fifty laws discriminate against its Palestinian citizens. When influential sports organizations say nothing in the face of an injustice of such magnitude they are complicit. …

But even there, on the other side of the world, the dancers could not escape the political problems of this country. Outside the St. James Theatre in Wellington were waiting for them dozens of angry protesters, who accused Bat Sheva of “whitewashing”, of presenting a nice face for the State of Israel, hiding the violation of the Human Rights of Palestinians.

Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories: 'Trigger-happy: Israel’s use of excessive force in the West Bank' Israeli forces have repeatedly violated their obligations under international human rights law by using excessive force to stifle dissent and freedom of expression, resulting in a pattern of unlawful killings and injuries to civilians. They do so with virtual impunity due to the authorities’ failure to conduct thorough investigations. This report focuses on the use of excessive force in the West Bank since the beginning of 2011. It includes cases of killings and injuries of Palestinian civilians in the context of protests against Israel’s continuing military occupation of the Palestinian territories, illegal Israeli settlements and the fence/wall.

As each unit represents one house or apartment, most if not all of which will likely be home to more than one person, this means once these plans have been realized the settler population will increase by well over 20,000 people.

Additionally, Israeli authorities have moved ahead with several other construction projects intended to confiscate Palestinian land, restrict the growth of Palestinian population centers, and cement Israeli control over parts of the occupied territories, including through the creation of dubious “national parks” and archeological digs on occupied Palestinian land. …

In the wake of the massacre, its victims, the Palestinian residents of Hebron, were the ones to suffer. Once one of the city’s major thoroughfares and commercial centers, Shuhada Street was closed to Palestinian vehicle and foot traffic as part of the Israeli army’s attempt to create “sterile” buffer zones between Jewish settlers and Palestinian residents in the city.

Williams’ claim was as absurd then as it appears in hindsight, but his sentiment was far from rare on the American and British right in the 1980s.

Mai 2014: Palästina-Apartheids-Rundreise mit der 'Heinrich Böll Stiftung Saar'

Don't play in Sun City Bisher hat sich die 'Heinrich Böll Stiftung Saar' darauf beschränkt, Israel bei der Unterdrückung der Palästinenser ideell zu unterstützen, etwa indem sie autochthonen Palästinenserhassern eine Bühne für ihre rassistische Siedler- und Kolonialpropaganda einräumt - so wie zuvor schon die taz, das informelle Parteiblatt der GRÜNEN.

Im Mai dieses Jahres, plant die Stiftung nun ein neues Geschäftsfeld für Israels Kolonisten zu erschliessen, den Tourismus.

Dazu organisiert die Böll-Stiftung eine veritable 'Apartheids-Rundreise'. "Apartheids-Rundreise", weil zwei Dinge in ihrem Programm nicht vorgesehen sind: Die direkte Begegnung mit der Besatzung und mit der autochthonen Bevölkerung, den Palästinensern.

NCF: The Government’s Plan for the Dispossession of the Bedouin Population

NCF-Newsletter Jan 2014 The Government plan, known as the Prawer Begin Plan, (hereafter the Plan) is a plan for the dispossession of the Bedouin population from its lands, the demolition of its historical villages and the forced resettlement of its population in Government sponsored townships. Allegedly this plan is designed to implement the recommendations of Judge Eliezer Goldberg’s committee of 2008 , recommendations that were unsatisfying for the Bedouin community. In fact the Prawer-Begin Plan turns the clock back and its implementation will bring about the demolition of most of the unrecognized villages and the transfer of tens of thousands of their residents to urban centers and townships that even now are considered among the most impoverished and underdeveloped places in Israel.

Why Israel Fears the Boycott

BDS in 'The New York Times' Das nachfolgende Editorial von Omar Barghouti erschien in der 'The New York Times'.
Dass Erscheinen eines solchen Beitrag in einer deutschen Tageszeitung ist angesichts der staatlich verordneten Israel-Solidarität ausgeschlossen.

… The B.D.S. movement’s call for full equality in law and policies for the Palestinian citizens of Israel is particularly troubling for Israel because it raises questions about its self-definition as an exclusionary Jewish state. … Israel remains the only country on earth that does not recognize its own nationality, as that would theoretically avail equal rights to all its citizens, undermining its “ethnocratic” identity. The claim that B.D.S., a nonviolent movement anchored in universal principles of human rights, aims to “destroy” Israel must be understood in this context. …

Palestinian Workers in Settlements

Palestinian Workers in Settlements Ende 2013 liess sich Arbeiterführer Michael Sommer auf dem Berliner Israelkongress dafür feiern, nichr nur die illegalen Siedler zu unterstützen, sondern auch die in den Siedlungen operierenden Unternehmer zu unterstützen, die durch die Ausbeutung der Zwangslage der Palästinenser sicher einen erheblichen Extraprofit machen.
Vor diesem Hintergrund erscheint es ratsam, sich mit der Situaton der palästinensischen Arbeiter in den Siedlungen zu befassen.

Palestinian Workers in Settlements - Who Profits Position Paper
Israeli and international companies that face criticism owing to their activities in the occupied West Bank often attempt to legitimize their businesses in settlements by claiming that they provide labor to Palestinian workers. These claims are blatant attempts to distract public attention from the Israeli occupation and the daily hardships suffered by Palestinians, who are compelled to seek their livelihood in Israeli industries, usually in settlements. …

Appell der Frauen aus Gaza

Appell der Frauen aus Gaza Wir palästinensische Frauen aus Gaza sind Teil der Gesellschaft ganz Palästinas. Die Apartheidspolitik Israels hat uns in die Isolierung gezwungen. Seit sieben Jahren sind wir Opfer der Blockade und der militärischen Besetzung des Gaza-Streifens.

Wir gehören zu jenen 1,8 Millionen Palästinensern, die auf einer Fläche von 365 Quadratkilometern eingesperrt sind. Wir werden täglich und systematisch entmenschlicht.

Wir bitten Euch dringend: helft uns, die ungerechte und unmenschliche Blockade zu beenden. Die Blockade geht gegen unser ganzes Leben als Frauen, als Mütter, als Berufstätige.

The futile two-state solution: Palestinians denounce 'financial blackmail'

The futile two-state solution: Palestinians denounce 'financial blackmail' Palestinian leaders have reacted angrily to what they see as a veiled threat by the European Union over the dispersal of financial aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) if peace talks with Israel fail to reach a breakthrough.

European officials recently warned the Palestinians that European countries were suffering from "donor fatigue" after spending billions of dollars in aid with limited results in achieving a lasting peace with the Israelis.

"It has been made very clear to the Palestinians that just sitting around and waiting is not an option," said Lars Faaborg-Andersen, EU ambassador to Israel. "We have made it clear to the parties that there will be a price to pay if these negotiations falter." …

taz verbreitet Siedler- & Kolonialpropaganda der 'Aktion 3. Welt Saar'

'taz' boykottieren?! Im Dezember letzten Jahres verbreitete die taz einen mehrseitigen Text einer scheinbaren 3.-Welt Soligruppe - 'Aktion 3. Welt Saar' - mit dem Titel „Vorsicht, die Helfer kommen!“.

Was zu Beginn nach einer progressiven, wenn auch altbackenen Kritik an den Auswüchsen der NGO-Industrie aussieht, entpuppt sich bei weitergehendem Studium als ätzendes Gemisch aus vorsätzlichen Fälschungen, intellektueller Unfähigkeit und rassistischer Demagogie.

Aktion 3. Welt Saar: 'Unzurechnungsfähigkeit aus Größenwahn' Die TAZ hat ihrer Ausgabe vom 20. Dezember 2013 eine Flugschrift über das Hilfsbusiness der NGOs in Palästina[1] beigelegt.

„Aktion 3. Welt Saar schreibt hierin u.a. über Amnesty International‘s Wasserbericht[2] aus dem Jahre 2009:

„Dort heißt es: „Der tägliche Frischwasserkonsum der in den besetzten Gebieten lebenden Palästinenser liegt bei rund 70 Litern pro Kopf – und damit deutlich unter der Menge von 100 Litern, die von der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) empfohlen wird.“

Demgegenüber verbrauche ein Israeli täglich im Schnitt über 300 Liter Wasser, also mehr als das Vierfache. ... Offen bleibt dabei, woher Amnesty überhaupt die Verbrauchszahlen hat – eine Quelle für sie wird im Bericht nämlich nicht genannt.„

Amnesty International’s Bericht liegt im Original auf Englisch und in deutscher Übersetzung vor.

Normalisierungspropaganda "Goldrausch statt Intifada - Aufbruch in Palästina" (WDR Weltweit)

Palestinian farmer in Qaryut in front of his damaged olive trees Am 21. Januar hat der WDR mit der Sendung Goldrausch statt Intifada - Aufbruch in Palästina eine Aneinderreihung neoliberaler Klischees über Palästina vorgeführt, die rein gar nichts mit der Realität in den besetzten Gebieten zu tun haben, sieht man von einer dünnen Schicht von Profiteuren des allein auf Verschuldung und Auslandshilfen beruhenden 'Aufschwungs' in Palästina ab.

Die bedeutenste "Leistung" der beiden Autoren, Michaela Heine und Ghislain Barallon, besteht darin einen halbstündigen Film über Palästina zu drehen, der gänzlich ohne die Nennung der ruinösen, alles erstickenden Besatzung auskommt.

Saudi Arabia: A Retrograde Rentier Dictatorship and Global Terrorism

The ruling elite relies on the purchase of Western arms and US military bases for protection. The wealth of productive nations is syphoned to enrich the conspicuous consumption of the Saudi ruling family. The ruling elite finances the most fanatical, retrograde, misogynist version of Islam, “Wahhabi” a sect of Sunni Islam.

Faced with internal dissent from repressed subjects and religious minorities, the Saudi dictatorship perceives threats and dangers from all sides: … In response it has turned toward financing, training and arming an international network of Islamic terrorists who are directed toward attacking, invading and destroying regimes opposed to the Saudi clerical-dictatorial regime. …

It will be replaced by the expansion of an existing railway, new housing units, nightclubs and restaurants, among other venues designed to bring in increased tourist revenues.

“Since I was five years old, I’ve been hearing that al-Mahatta is going to be completely destroyed … but today, I can’t imagine that we have more than two or three years left in our homes,” George Eskandar, chairman of al-Mahatta’s neighborhood committee, told The Electronic Intifada.

Es ist mühsam einer Minderheit anzugehören, die 20% eines Staates ausmacht, dessen Mehrheitsbevölkerung die Existenz dieser Minorität nicht akzeptiert. Kompliziert wird es, wenn diese Minderheit das indigene Volk der Region ist, in der dieser Staat gegründet wurde und jener diese Tatsache leugnet. Und skurril wird es dann, wenn 82 % dieser Minderheit das Leben in diesem Staat dem in einem anderen Staat vorziehen. Das ist die arabische Minderheit in Israel, der ich angehöre.

Of negotiations and high treason: Israel-Palestine 'peace'

The corrupt PA is incapable of achieving the dignity of Palestinian self-determination, writes the author.

by Susan Abulhawa

No good for Palestinians will come of the current Middle East talks. Worse, harm seems likely. These negotiations threaten to undo years of work by Palestinian civil society and solidarity partners around the world who have been working tirelessly for a just peace. Their work has been done -principally- through global nonviolent resistance campaigns such as the Boycott Divestment & Sanctions campaign (BDS), the Russell Tribunal, and mounting popular local and international protests, among other tactics. …

Israels demokratischer Rassismus

x'te Zerstörung El-Arakibs "We say – peace is not the issue, we need to get rid of the Palestinians", erklärte der gegenwärtige Finanzminister Israels Lapid laut, der zu den gemässigten Politikern Israels gerechnet wird:

"We say – peace is not the issue, we need to get rid of the Palestinians. It threatens us, it chokes us. Ultimately the State of Israel cannot continue on while unnaturally absorbing four million Palestinians. Eventually they will tell us, 'if you don't want to give us a country of our own, let us vote.' And then, if we let them vote, it will be the end of the Jewish state. If we won't let them – it will be the end of a democratic Israel, and I won't allow that to happen."

In dem Kommentar Israel als jüdischer Staat: Unzumutbare Forderung attackiert die studierte Islamwissenschaftlerin gleich drei 'heilige Kühe' der Israel-Lobby: Die Behauptung, dass Israel eine Demokratie - 'jüdisch und demokratisch' - sei, die Behaupung. dass Israel ein moderner, westlicher Staat sei und und zuletzt die, dass Israel auf der Suche nach einem Frieden mit den Palästinensern sei:

African asylum seekers strike to demand rights, hold unprecedented rally in Tel Aviv

Asylum seeker women march toward Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on the first day of a three-day strike demanding refugee rights in Israel, January 5, 2013. (Photo: (972-mag) Over 20,000 asylum seekers, mostly from Eritrea, assembled in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square Sunday morning to demand recognition as refugees. Across Israel, asylum seekers went on a three-day strike, and more protests were planned.

In recent weeks, the government stepped up the arrest and imprisonment of African asylum seekers who entered the state without permits. Several months ago, Israel’s High Court of Justice struck down a law authorizing the state to lock up for three years any person who entered the country illegally, and in some cases, indefinitely.
But last month the Knesset passed a new law, authorizing the state to hold asylum seekers in “closed” prisons for a year. A new “open” holding facility named “Holot” began operating in the desert, where asylum seekers can be held indefinitely until their eventual deportation. …

Film: Dancing in Jaffa

Dancing in Jaffa Pierre Dulaine, four-time ballroom dancing world champion, is fulfilling a life-long dream when he takes his program, Dancing Classrooms, back to his city of birth, Jaffa. For generations, Jaffa has been a city divided by two communities that continue to grow increasingly apart. Over a ten-week period, Pierre teaches Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children to dance and compete together. The film explores the complex stories of three children, all of whom who are forced to confront issues of identity, segregation, and racial prejudice as they dance with their enemy. We watch Pierre transform their lives, confirming his belief that dance can overcome hatred and provide the first steps towards real change.
