  • On the Flotilla Ship, the German Foreign Ministry, British Counsel, Helen Thomas and Normalization

    by Adel Samara
    The end of May and the beginning of June 2010 witnessed hot events regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict. Definitely those events were not deliberately planned to take place at the 43rd anniversary of the 5 June occupation of the West Bank and Gaza strip, although they are related to it. In this context it might be useful to make a comparison between the people who stood behind those events, especially non-Arabs, i.e. Germans, Americans and British. History did not start in 1967!

  • En Belgique, une plainte déposée à l’encontre de 14 dirigeants israéliens

    23 juin 2010, par Jean-Pierre Stroobants
    Deux avocats belges, Me Georges-Henri Beauthier et Alexis Deswaef, ont annoncé, mercredi 23 juin, à Bruxelles, le dépôt d’une plainte pour crimes contre l’humanité et crimes de guerre à l’encontre de 14 dirigeants politiques et militaires israéliens. Elle vise des actes commis à la fin 2008 et au début 2009 à Gaza, lors de l’opération militaire "Plomb durci". La plainte cite, entre autres, Ehoud Olmert, Tzipi Livni et Ehoud Barak, respectivement premier ministre, ministre des affaires étrangères et (...) suite suite
  • La destruction de 22 maisons palestiniennes à Jérusalem-Est divise les Israéliens

    2010,
    La commission de planification et de construction de la municipalité a validé lundi le projet dit du « Jardin du roi » en hébreu (une référence aux jardins du roi Salomon), qui doit être construit dans le quartier de Silwan, où des familles de colons juifs se sont installées au milieu de 12 000 Palestiniens. Le plan municipal prévoit la destruction de 22 habitations palestiniennes construites sans autorisation israélienne, tandis que 66 autres maisons bâties sans permis seraient légalisées (...) suite suite
  • Israel’s Freedom Flotilla Massacre underlines the urgency of intensifying BDS

    14 June 2010,
    Occupied Palestine, 08 June 2010 — In light of Israel’s massacre of humanitarian relief workers and activists aboard the Freedom Flotilla on 31 May 2010 and its insistence to continue its illegal siege on Gaza, pressuring Israel to comply with its obligations under international law has become of undeniable urgency. Drunk with power and impunity, Israel has ignored recent appeals by the UN Secretary General as well as a near consensus among world governments to end its deadly siege, putting (...) continue continue
  • B’tselem: Gaza, 95% of factories are closed, 93% of water is polluted

    14 June 2010, by Haitham Sabbah
    Most of Gaza’s factories have closed and its water is polluted as a result of Israel’s siege policy, according to a new report being released today by the Israeli Human Rights group – B’tselem. The siege policy has "led to economic collapse in Gaza," B’tselem noted in a 44-page report (PDF) that looked at Gaza, the West Bank and east Jerusalem during the period from January 2009 to the end of April 2010. Following is a summery of this report: * The prohibition on bringing in raw materials (...) continue continue
  • A powerful but masochistic expression of gratitude by the USA to Israel

    by Mark Glenn
    Today, while driving through town, I wound up behind a minivan that had a big sticker on the back. The sticker had an Israeli flag in the middle of it and under it the quotation from the book of Genesis that reads "I will bless those who bless thee." I would like to take this time to list my own reasons for thanking and blessing Israel, our lone ally in the Middle East, for everything she has done for us, since I am quite sure most Americans are unaware of just what kind of friend she has (...) continue continue
  • Israel’s Policy of Killing Civilians

    2 June 2010, by Paolo Barnard
    Translated in English from Italian by Gulagnik’s Diego Traversa for http://gulagnik.wordpress.com and www.palestinethinktank.com Killing civilians has been State policy in Israel since 1948 (and, prior to that, of Zionism). It’s not about “tragic mistakes”, there’s no “deep regret for the incident”. Killing civilians is what Israel has founded itself on with the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and this is what allows it to live. What is to be added to this is the outright impunity Israel enjoys due (...) continue continue
  • Le chemin de justice

    4 juin 2010, par Dominique de Villepin
    L’arraisonnement brutal du Mavi-Marmara, chargé de civils, dans les eaux internationales, semble nous prouver une fois de plus l’impuissance du droit et de la raison. Derrière ce drame, se pose à nous la question occultée du sort de Gaza. Rien ne saurait justifier qu’on prenne en otage une population d’un million et demi d’hommes, de femmes, d’enfants dans une ville asphyxiée. Censé discréditer le Hamas, le blocus n’a fait que renforcer l’image de martyr dont se pare le mouvement. La marginalisation (...) suite suite
  • Western leaders are too cowardly to help save lives

    1 June 2010, by Robert Fisk
    Has Israel lost it? Can the Gaza War of 2008-09 (1,300 dead) and the Lebanon War of 2006 (1,006 dead) and all the other wars and now yesterday’s killings mean that the world will no longer accept Israel’s rule? Don’t hold your breath. You only have to read the gutless White House statement – that the Obama administration was "working to understand the circumstances surrounding the tragedy". Not a single word of condemnation. And that’s it. Nine dead. Just another statistic to add to the Middle (...) continue continue
  • Nakbah 2010

    27 mai 2010, par Ilan Pappe
    La dépossession du peuple palestinien qui a commencé avec les massacres et les expulsions de 1948 se poursuit aujourd’hui avec le siège de Gaza et la « judaïsation » de Jérusalem et de la Cisjordanie. Tout suit un plan de « nettoyage ethnique », écrit Ilan Pappe dans cette tribune libre. Plus les années passent, plus il devient clair que le plus grand défi auquel nous sommes confrontés est la triste réalité que la Nakbah n’est pas terminée. Et quand je dis « nous » je veux dire tous ceux qui (...) suite suite
