Proud to be Palestinian

There is a phrase uttered by Palestinians every day: “next year in Al-Quds (Jerusalem).” But, all of Palestine’s enemies (israel and their savage supporters) seem to be keen on one idea: “we’ll kill you all by then!”

Such Savages!

ISRAEL-PALESTINIAN-CONFLICT-DEMONSTRATION

  • Israel reports that the shooting and killing of 100 Palestinian protesters was unavoidable because they couldn’t act against Hamas without also harming protesters.
  • It’s the same response Israel has given since the 2007 takeover of Gaza to justify blocking travel, denying outgoing goods, and restricting Palestinian’s caloric intake.
  • The United Nations Human Rights Council voted 29-2 to investigate the shooting at the Israel-Gaza border — Israel rejected it as an anti-Israel bias.
  • By treating all Gaza residents as Hamas, Israel has helped the Hamas regime grow stronger.
  • Hamas gained power in Gaza by handing out food and cash to the poor, hiring the unemployed as public servants, and opening a lucrative trading system with Egypt via tunnels underneath the border.

If it was any other oppressive government committing such atrocities, we would have sanctioned and bombed that government into submission.

Why, then, is the Apartheid state of israel allowed to commit atrocities against Palestinians on a daily basis?

It’s called Ethnic Cleansing, Stupid! It started in 1948 and continues to this day. These savage non-Semite AshkeNazi Jews are evil and their Zionist ideology is parallel to ISIS!

Meanwhile, the Israeli government acknowledges the international law enforcement standard but says its forces will fire live rounds even before a threat to life becomes imminent!

Around 300 Jewish (ISIS-Like  terrorists) settlers stormed into Al-Aqsa Mosque this past Sunday, May 19, 2018 taking advantage of “Jewish holidays”, amid tight security measures and Palestinian rejection.

The wave of intruders provoked worshipers during the holy month of Ramadan, and almost led to clashes.

Militant Settlers have responded to calls by extremist groups to revive the Jewish celebration of the “giving of the Torah”, and tried to perform prayers in the area, but police forces stopped them, fearing the deterioration of the situation.


At the same time, other groups of terrorist settlers in the markets outside Al-Aqsa, including Al-Qatanin market, staged provocative Talmudic rituals, and gathered in large numbers to pray in the courtyard of Al-Buraq Wall, the Western Wall of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The prayers came at the invitation of the “organizations of the Temple,” which were strongly involved in the incursions.

Terrorist Jewish Settlers were encouraged to storm into Al-Aqsa and shout Israeli chants, two weeks after an Israeli court ruling allowed settlers to chant “the People of Israel will live” inside the mosque as “this is a patriotic” not religious declaration, according to the Israeli judge.

Settlers’ incursions come in violation of an agreement between Israel and Jordan – the custodians of Islamic holy sites – which defines the number of Jews intending to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque and prevents them from performing any prayers or religious rites.

The agreement is known as the status quo, since the Israeli occupation of the eastern part of Jerusalem in 1967.

However, the incursions continue despite the warning of the Palestinian Authority and Jordan of a significant deterioration in the situation because of the provocation against the Muslims.

Women on the front line in the deadly “no-man’s land” of Gaza’s “buffer zone”

“Then the Israeli snipers called me on the speaker, saying, ‘You, the woman with the keffieh, if you approach the fence again we will shoot you in the head’.

In the deadly no-man’s land of Gaza’s buffer zone, a small group of Palestinian protesters hidden by black smoke, braved Israeli sniper fire and reached the perimeter fence. Tearing a piece away they made it back to safety, holding their trophy.

The stunt was remarkable given the deaths of nearly three dozen protesters in recent weeks at the hands of soldiers firing across the border fence.

Since the start of the Great Return March four weeks ago, in which Gaza’s refugees are demanding the right to return to their lands now inside Israel, 32 unarmed protesters, including a child, have been killed by Israel’s sharpshooters ranged on the other side.

But this stunt was all the more remarkable given that those who carried it out were women.

Further up the buffer zone other women stood in front of protesting men, trying to provide cover for them against Israeli fire on Friday. One of the women, Taghreed al Barawi, said they did this because “women are less likely to be shot at than men”, although their sex has not protected the 160 or so women who have also been wounded during the last week of the buffer zone protests.

“Then the Israeli snipers called me on the speaker, saying, ‘You, the woman with the keffieh, if you approach the fence again we will shoot you in the head’. But I am not afraid and next time will burn their flag and raise ours.”

Taghreen al Barawi said she had “this feeling of strange courage” as she got closer to the fence. She also spoke of being inspired by Ahed Tamimi, the 17-year-old West Bank teenager, currently being held in an Israeli jail after she slapped an Israeli soldier outside her home.

Pictures of women in the front line of an Arab uprising are not surprising at first sight – women played a lead role in the Arab Spring, and, as in the case of Ahed Tamimi, are increasingly in the forefront of West Bank protests too.

But in Gaza’s traditional Hamas-run society, as well as living under Israel’s siege, women are also subject to repressive social codes which mean spontaneous public protest

“I would be Ahed if I could,” was a cry heard from many Gaza women after the teenager’s recent sentence was passed. “She is strong, she is beautiful, she is courageous,” said two veiled students, staring adoringly at Ahed’s portrait – wearing jeans, hair uncovered – on a wall outside Gaza’s Islamic University.

Also emblazoned on the wall were portraits of former Palestinian leaders including Yasser Arafat, leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, and Ahmed Yassin, founder of Hamas.

It is not, however, only the social taboo which until now has prevented these women from protesting as Ahed did.

Since Israel’s decision in 2005 to withdraw its troops from bases inside Gaza, redeploying to the perimeter with a blockade at sea and control of the skies, it has been even harder for ordinary Palestinians to resist in the way Ahed Tamimi did.

In the days of the old intifada any Palestinian could land a stone on a soldier with no trouble, as the soldiers were in amongst them. “Now we can’t be like Ahed because we can’t even see a soldier, never mind hit them with stones. We never get close enough to kick or punch. If only we could,” a young man complained.

For those in Gaza this inability to see or hit back at the enemy has created a uniquely desperate despair, which has spilled out into the buffer zone protests of recent weeks. Perhaps for this reason, Hamas understood it could not hold back any protester and allowed women to protest too.

As the marches have continued and the death toll has risen, some in Gaza have withdrawn support for the uprising, saying the protesters are simply “committing suicide” by throwing themselves in front of Israel’s bullets.

But others, including many young women, are determined to continue until the climax on 15 May.

“What do we have to lose? We are dying in Gaza under siege. Why not die in the buffer zone protesting instead. At least there’s a chance our message will be heard,” said Intimah Saleh, 27, protesting with her mother who cooks food for those on the front line.

Asked whether she thought the women of Gaza would produce an Ahed Tamimi, she said: “Of course. But we have many Aheds here.”

And asked whether Ahed could be a future Palestinian leader, a group of teenage boys laughed and said: “No. The Israelis will not allow it. Before that happens they’ll make sure she’s shot.”

  • ATW Comment: Palestinians should not care if the “israeli’s allow it!”  Ahed Tamimi would be the best leader in the future! Abbas and his thugs need to drop dead!

The Tel Aviv stabbings:
What the media left out

On Wednesday in Tel Aviv, a 23-year-old Palestinian man stabbed and injured as many as 12 Israelis who were riding a public bus during morning rush hour. No deaths were reported, although three people were hospitalized with serious injuries.

U.S. mainstream media coverage of this attack painted a picture of Israeli citizens living in fear of deranged Palestinian terrorists. The media rarely mentioned that Israeli forces have maintained a 48-year military occupation that profoundly impacts and virtually imprisons 4 million Palestinian men, women, and children in the West Bank and Gaza. The media also omitted significant information on Palestinians killed and injured by Israel during the period reported on.

Palestinian Girl

Last October, a young Palestinian girl was killed after an Israeli settler hit her with his vehicle.

 

Below are some examples:

CNN’s coverage of the incident reported details of the deaths of  10 Israelis who were killed by Palestinians last October and November. Yet CNN neglected to mention that just three days ago Israeli police  killed a 47-year-old Palestinian man when the police stormed the funeral procession of another Palestinian shot and killed by Israeli police. Since October of 2014, at least  19 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis (5 of them children). Only three of these deaths were mentioned in CNN’s article.

The New York Times said that yesterday’s stabbings “broke a period of relative calm that followed a spate of attacks against Israelis” in recent months, perpetrated by “Palestinians armed with knives, cleavers and guns.” The Times  seems to think a period is “calm” as long as no Israelis are harmed. Since October 1, 2014, at least 1,677 Palestinians(approximately 250 of them children) have been injured by Israeli forces or settlers living on confiscated Palestinian land. During this time period, 196 Israelis were injured by Palestinians.

(The Times also fails to divulge that its reporters for the story, Isabel Kershner and Irit Pazner Garshowitz, are both Israeli citizens and that Kershner’s husband is a spin doctor for the Israeli military establishment.)

The Associated Press and NPR’s coverage  similarly provided largely Israeli-centric context. The AP described yesterday’s attack in graphic detail, and both AP and NPR made sure to remind readers of last November’s attack on a Jerusalem synagogue that left 5 Israelis dead. They did not, however, mention recent Israeli attacks on Palestinians. Among the thousands of incidents since last October:

Additionally, in the last four months, at least 260 Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem were made homeless after Israel demolished their homes. Half of them were children. Approximately 110,000 homes in Gaza  were destroyed during Israel’s deadly assault last summer, and 14,000 Gazans are still living in UNRWA schools. Lack of adequate shelter during winter storms and flooding has caused the deaths of three Palestinian infants, one toddler, and one adult.

Nazi israelis arresting children

In Jerusalem, the occupation continues its series of violations against citizens, by not allowing them to enter al Aqsa mosque, and by another kidnap campaign that carries on until the moment. The prisoners are now detained waiting for investigation by the Israeli court.

Furthermore, a citizen from Nablus was arrested on an Israeli checkpoint while heading to his work this morning.

And israelis claim they want peace! They never wanted it nor do they ever want it! Killing and terrorism is ingrained in these Nazis blood!
