Israel plans to confiscate 650 dunums in occupied Jerusalem

leave a comment »

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli planning and construction committee has decided to confiscate 650 dunums of land in occupied Jerusalem to establish two garbage dumps.

A researcher specialized in settlement activity, Ahmed Sub Laban, said that the first junkyard would be established on 500 dunums in the area between Enata and Aisawiya, describing the area as a valley 745 meters deep.

The other plan envisages seizing 150 dunums of land between Kafr Akab and Bir Nabala to the north of occupied Jerusalem to establish another rubbish dump, he added.

Another researcher, Amran Al-Resheq, said that the two garbage dumps would negatively affect the environment, adding that the Israeli occupation authority did not care less about the health of the Arab inhabitants.

Afghaan met puberkinderen mag blijven

leave a comment »

De Afghaan Abdul Momand en zijn twee puberkinderen met de Nederlandse nationaliteit kunnen in ons land blijven. Momand dreigde uitgezet te worden, maar minister Gerd Leers (Immigratie) maakt een uitzondering vanwege ‘individuele omstandigheden’, aldus een woordvoerder van het ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken vandaag.

Als hij was uitgezet, had Momand noodgedwongen zijn kinderen moeten meenemen naar zijn land van herkomst. De Afghaanse man, die al 15 jaar in Nederland woont, kon ze niet achterlaten, omdat zijn vrouw in 2006 is overleden.

De kinderen, 15 en 16, spreken geen Afghaans. Momand kreeg tot drie keer toe van rechters te horen dat hij mocht blijven, maar kreeg eerder deze maand van de Immigratie- en Naturalisatie Dienst (IND) te verstaan dat hij toch moest vertrekken. Leers heeft zijn zogenoemde discretionaire bevoegdheid gebruikt om het oordeel van de IND te passeren.

Momand werkt al ruim 10 jaar als conciërge bij basisschool de Sint Michaël in Hazerswoude-Dorp. De school maakte zich hard voor de zaak en wilde via een juridische weg hun conciërge hier houden. Zowel de school als Momand reageerde verheugd op het nieuws.

‘Palestinian hunger striker’s life at risk’

with one comment

Palestinian activist Khader Adnan
The health condition of Palestinian activist Khader Adnan imprisoned by Israel is “deteriorating” after spending 44 days on hunger strike in jail.

The life of a Palestinian activist in an Israeli jail is reportedly in danger after 44 days of hunger strike which he began to protest his imprisonment.

“His health is deteriorating and his life will be in danger if he continues the hunger strike,” Tel Aviv-based Physicians for Human Rights said in a statement on Monday.

Khader Adnan, 34, kicked off the hunger strike a day after he was arrested by Israeli forces on December 17 2011. He has been held without trial ever since in what Israel calls “administrative detention”.

The Palestinian prisoners club, which monitors inmates’ wellbeing, said Adnan was taken by ambulance on Monday from Israel’s Ramla prison to a military court, where a hearing on his case was postponed until February 1.

Adnan was brutally beaten by the Israeli occupation forces and sustained injuries when Israeli forces raided his home outside the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank, a Press TV correspondent said.

Adnan has been sentenced to four months in jail.

Adnan is on hunger strike for several reasons as stated by him: he considers his detention a violation of his rights and identity; he protests the ill-treatment he suffered at the hands of the soldiers and interrogators, and he refuses to accept the unjust system of administrative detention.
