'Linke' und 'GRÜNEN' Israel-Lobbyisten gegen Max Blumenthal

Pau, Gysi und Beck bedrohen nicht nur die Palästinener ... 'Linke' und 'GRÜNE' Israel-Lobbyisten versuchen im Verein mit der DIG und dem bekannten Israel-Lobbyisten Benjamin Weinthal Veranstaltungen mit Max Blumenthal in Berlin zu verhindern.
Blumenthal trat unter anderem vor dem Russell Tribunal auf, wo er über die von Israel in Gaza begangenen Kriegsverbrechen berichtete.

Weinthal behauptet in der Berliner Morgenpost, dass der prominenteste Garant des israelischen Staatsinteresses in der Links-Partei, Gregor Gysi, angeordnet habe eine Veranstaltung von Abgeordneten der Linken mit Blumenthal zu stoppen.
Derweil schwingen Israel-Beschützer wie Petra Pau (LINKE) und Volker Beck (GRÜNE) die Ausgeglichenheits/Antisemitismus-Keule gegen die Volksbühne, wo ebenfalls ein Auftritt Blumenthals ansteht.

War in Jerusalem

War in Jerusalem Meanwhile, war in Jerusalem. The spark which had set off East Jerusalem was the kidnapping, murder and burning of the boy Mohammed Abu Khdeir, blood feud for the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli yeshiva students. Since then the conflagration had been going on, also in the weeks when all attention was focused on the bombing of Gaza. Every week, almost every day, still more fuel is added to the combustion. Israeli Nationalist-Messianic settlers penetrate deep into the Palestinian neighborhoods, take over houses on the basis of questionable purchase contracts, and effectively turn them into fortified compounds. Larger Jewish neighborhoods, established by the government on expropriated Palestinian land in East Jerusalem, are expanding through major projects involving thousands of housing units – with ordinary Israeli Jerusalemites, seeking a place to live, becoming unwittingly the pawns in a game of “expanding the Jewish presence” and driving wedges between Palestinian neighborhoods. …

Israel moves to outlaw Palestinian political parties in the Knesset

Israel moves ... by J. Cook

The Israeli parliament voted overwhelmingly last week to suspend Haneen Zoabi, a legislator representing the state’s large Palestinian minority, for six months as a campaign to silence political dissent intensified.

The Israeli parliament, or Knesset, voted by 68 to 16 to endorse a decision in late July by its ethics committee to bar Zoabi from the chamber for what it termed “incitement.”

It is the longest suspension in the Knesset’s history and the maximum punishment allowed under Israeli law. …

Shlomo Sand: ‘I wish to resign and cease considering myself a Jew’

Shlomo Sand: ‘I wish to resign and cease considering myself a Jew’ Now, having painfully become aware that I have undergone an adherence to Israel, been assimilated by law into a fictitious ethnos of persecutors and their supporters, and have appeared in the world as one of the exclusive club of the elect and their acolytes, I wish to resign and cease considering myself a Jew.

I am aware of living in one of the most racist societies in the western world. Racism is present to some degree everywhere, but in Israel it exists deep within the spirit of the laws. It is taught in schools and colleges, spread in the media, and above all and most dreadful, in Israel the racists do not know what they are doing and, because of this, feel in no way obliged to apologise.

On Israel's little-known concentration and labor camps in 1948-1955

On Israel's little-known concentration and labor camps in 1948-1955 By Yazan al-Saadi

Much of the grim and murky circumstances of the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the late 1940s have gradually been exposed over time. One aspect – rarely researched or deeply discussed – is the internment of thousands of Palestinian civilians within at least 22 Zionist-run concentration and labor camps that existed from 1948 to 1955. Now more is known about the contours of this historical crime, due to the comprehensive research by renowned Palestinian historian Salman Abu Sitta and founding member of the Palestinian resource center BADIL Terry Rempel.

Israel’s Occupation is More Complex Than a Genocide

Israel’s Occupation is More Complex Than a Genocide by Jonathan Cook

Last month … the Russell Tribunal … into Israel’s recent attack on Gaza concluded that Israel was guilty of “incitement to genocide”. The panel argued that Israel’s long-term collective punishment of Palestinians was designed to “inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the incremental destruction of the Palestinians as a group”.

… the UN convention’s drafters understood that genocide did not require death camps; it could also be achieved gradually through intentional and systematic abuse and neglect. Their definition raises troubling questions about Israel’s treatment of Gaza, aside from military attacks. Does, for example, forcing the enclave’s two million inhabitants to depend on acquifers polluted with seawater constitute genocide?

… no satisfactory end to this on-going humanitarian crisis can be achieved without the realisation of a more far-reaching justice for the Palestinian people, including the displaced refugees, and [without] … the realisation of a situation in which the inhabitants of historic Palestine, … are able to coexist under conditions of meaningful freedom and equality – equality of civic status, of respect, and of access to land and resources.

Die politische Ökonomie der israelischen Apartheid und das Gespenst des Völkermordes

The Political Economy of Israeli Apartheid and the Specter of Genocide Prof. William Robertson liefert hier eine umfasssende Analyse der Zusammenhänge zwischen der Transformation der israelischen Ökonomie seit den achtziger Jahren - den Konsequenzen des Zusammenbruchs der UDSSR, der Globalisierung und des grenzenlosen Antiterrorkriegs - sowie dem ebenso ruinösen wie korrupten Friedensprozess.

Diese Prozesse hätten die Palästinenser in "überflüssiges" Menschenmaterial verwandelt, über dessen Beseitigung in Israel mittlerweile ganz offen diskutiert wird - während man in Gaza an der praktischen Umsetzung arbeitet.

Ein Genozid an den Palästinensern - so Robertson - sei kein Hirngespinst mehr, sondern eine ganz reale Bedrohung.

ACT! Volunteer with Jordan Valley's besieged communities The Jordan Valley needs your help. The Jordan Valley Solidarity (JVS) Campaign, a network of Palestinian grassroots community groups from all over the Jordan Valley, established in 2003, is making an appeal to international volunteers to go and help the communities in Area C.

What JVS is looking for is someone who can spend a period in the village of Fasayel where the campaign prepares mud bricks to build houses, schools and structures that the Israeli bulldozers demolished in all the Jordan Valley. Anyone can join and choose how long he/she can stay with them – few days, few weeks, few months. Until now, the campaign managed to build 5 schools, clinics and hundreds of houses for the communities in Area C (more than the 93% of the entire size of the Valley). …

n+1'ter Tag des Pogroms

What Israel Has Done After the Ceasefire Während das 'heisse' Pogrom in Gaza ('Protective Edge') abkühlte, bei dem der 'jüdische Staat' mit Billigung der UN, der USA, der EU und der deutschen Regierung in Gaza binnen 55 Tagen 2137 Palästinenser zur Strecke brachte - darunter 578 Kinder, 264 Frauen und 103 betagte Menschen, setzte dieser Staat die für ihn ganz normale, 'kalte' Pogrom-Tätigkeit in der Westbank unvermindert fort.

Diese kleine Aufstellung bei Global Research mit 26 Einzelpunkten zu israelischen Attacken seit dem Ende von 'Protective Edge' - ein Potpourri aus Entführungen, Folter, Vertreibungen, Morden, Raub und Diebstahl - zeigt, dass es für die Palästinenser völlig sinnlos ist mit Israel verhandeln zu wollen.

Israeli forces use Palestinian child as human shield in Gaza

Ahed Atef Bakr, Zakaria Ahed Bakr und Mohamed Bakr auf der Flucht, Sekunden vor ihrer Ermordung Dass Palästinenser ihre Kinder als 'menschliche Schutzschilde' einsetzten ist eine ebenso absurde wie menschenverachtende Erfindung der israelischen Kriegsvebrecher-Propaganda.

Absurd, weil palästinensische Kinder als Schutzschild offenbar untauglich sind, da israelische Kriegsverbrecher bekanntlich nicht davor zurückschrecken palästinensische Kinder zu ermorden - was sie in Gaza hundertfach getan haben.
Menschenverachtend und antisemitisch ist diese Erfindung, weil die Unterstellung, dass Palästinenser ihre eigenen (!) Kinder opferten offensichtlich dazu dient sie zu entmenschlichen, ganz analog zu der mittelalterlichen Mär vom jüdischen Ritualmord an christlichen Kindern.

1948, when Sderot was known as Huj

1948, when Sderot was known as Hooj … And the people who lived in Sederot in early 1948 were not Israelis, but Palestinian Arabs. Their village was called Huj. Nor were they enemies of Israel. Two years earlier, these same Arabs had actually hidden Jewish Haganah fighters from the British Army. But when the Israeli army turned up at Huj on 31 May 1948, they expelled all the Arab villagers – to the Gaza Strip! Refugees, they became. …

And today, well over 6,000 descendants of the Palestinians from Huj – now Sederot – live in the squalor of Gaza, among the “terrorists” Israel is claiming to destroy and who are shooting at what was Huj.

Gaza: Israel fighting Palestine itself

'Rolling in underground tunnels' by Slavoj Zizek by Slavoj Zizek

Today in Gaza, the Israeli military is fighting not only in underground tunnels, but also against the natives of the land. They are fighting not only against Hamas, but also against Palestine itself. They - alongside the West - are fighting against a nation that they have tried to expel from the land for almost 70 years now.

They are fighting not only because … [t]he refugee camps in Gaza are living evidence of this enormous land robbery, the original sin. Since 1948, there’ s been an attempt to divide the Palestinian people, to deprive them of all national consciousness; there’s been an attempt erase their memory … But we in the West didn’t anticipate that the Palestinians would still see themselves as one people. …

Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of Nazi genocide unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza As Jewish survivors and descendants of survivors and victims of the Nazi genocide we unequivocally condemn the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza and the ongoing occupation and colonization of historic Palestine. We further condemn the United States for providing Israel with the funding to carry out the attack, and Western states more generally for using their diplomatic muscle to protect Israel from condemnation. Genocide begins with the silence of the world.

We are alarmed by the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever-pitch. In Israel, politicians and pundits in The Times of Israel and The Jerusalem Post have called openly for genocide of Palestinians and right-wing Israelis are adopting Neo-Nazi insignia.
