Why the US Moving Its Israel Embassy to Jerusalem Would Be Illegal

By Jeremy R. Hammond The mainstream media serve Israel’s occupation regime by failing to inform that for the US to relocate its Israel embassy to Jerusalem would be illegal. On June 1, the White House announced that President Donald Trump had signed a waiver delaying the relocation of the US’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The media responded with a plethora of articles purporting to explain this situation to readers. Arguably the single most important fact about the plan to move the embassy, however, was not communicated. Specifically, what the media consistently fail to inform news consumers is that for the … Continue reading Why the US Moving Its Israel Embassy to Jerusalem Would Be Illegal

Social Media and the Zionist Calls for Murder !!

By SAMI, THE BEDOUIN Article of July 17th, 2016 ‘Jewish fear,’ as such, is self-inflicted — the more brutal the Israelis are, the more fearful they become of the  possibility that the Palestinians may be equally murderous. Similarly, the more the Jew hates the ‘goy,’ the more the Jew is mortified by the possibility that the goy may also express some animosity in return.”  The jewish thinker Gilad Atzmon  @ On The Jewish Projection ……………………………………………… “I want to revenge and kill a Palestinian” this was the post on a Facebook account, so simple and straightforward. What happened? Ayala Hasson, an “israeli” journalist, reporter and news director … Continue reading Social Media and the Zionist Calls for Murder !!

Israel’s settlement law: From occupation to annexation

  By Meron Rapoport On March 2012, Yaakov Kats, one of the extremists of the already extreme-right “National Unity” party, had a simple idea. In order to solve the problem of settlements and outposts that had been built on private Palestinian land in the West Bank without official Israeli authorisation, a law should be enacted that would allow Israel to confiscate these lands from their owners. In short, a law for legalising theft. In its early stages, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blocked this initiative, which was perceived to be a flagrant violation of Israel’s self-declared commitment to international law. Five … Continue reading Israel’s settlement law: From occupation to annexation

More Israeli settlements will mean fewer Palestinians

No sooner did Donald Trump take the presidential oath of office and seemingly put a promised move of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem on hold, than Israel announced it was building some 6,000 new housing units in occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied West Bank. Despite the U.S. administration’s slap on the wrist in response, Israel’s far-right Jewish Home party, led by Naftali Bennett, pushed through a bill “legalizing” outposts built on private Palestinian land, a move that brought international condemnation and was described as “theft” even in Israel. In fact, any changes in occupied territories are illegal under international … Continue reading More Israeli settlements will mean fewer Palestinians

The international community is paralysed in the face of Israel’s colonial settlements

Image of settlement consruction work in West Bank, Israel on 7th Feburary 2017 By Motasem A Dalloul The Israeli Knesset (parliament) has finally approved the settlement bill, which legalises the theft of private Palestinian land for illegal colony-settlement purposes. This means that around 55 illegal settlement outposts built over the past 25 years without the explicit consent of any Israeli government are now “legal”. Although the world believes that this measure will undermine the internationally-backed solution for the Israel-Palestine conflict, in practical terms the international community is doing nothing about it. “The law allows Israel to expropriate private Palestinian land … Continue reading The international community is paralysed in the face of Israel’s colonial settlements

Assad eyeing Hamas split over Syria

Russia and Iran realise that time is not on their side in Gaza and are putting their full weight behind restructuring Hamas. In January, the two main Palestinian parties, Fatah and Hamas, agreed in Russian-sponsored talks to form a national unity government, ending a quasi-civil war that has lasted between them since 2007. Although Russia, along with the United States, the United Nations and the European Union, has been part of the Middle East Quartet trying to resolve the Palestinian- Israeli dispute for 25 years, it seems interested in hammering out a unilateral endgame to the Palestin­ian crisis on its … Continue reading Assad eyeing Hamas split over Syria

Is Facebook neutral on Palestine-Israel conflict?

An article of 26 SEPTEMBER 2016 The giant social network is taking a stand with the occupier, say Palestinian activists. Palestinian activists say the suspension is the result of an Israeli campaign to pressure Facebook to censor the Palestinian narrative  Jerusalem – Facebook, the social network, may have capitulated to the Israeli narrative and is taking the side of an occupying power, according to Palestinian journalists and activists. “Israel doesn’t want the Palestinian story about violations against them in the occupied territories to reach a worldwide audience,” said Musa Rimawi, director of MADA, the Palestinian Centre for Development and Media Freedom. … Continue reading Is Facebook neutral on Palestine-Israel conflict?
