After ‘Protective Edge’: What Future for Palestine and Israel

Global Justice in the 21st Century

 

The 50-day Israeli military operation that killed over 2100 Palestinians, wounded another 11,000, and undoubtedly traumatized the entire Gazan population of 1.7 million also took the lives of 70 Israelis, of which 65 were soldiers. This last violent encounter has ended without a clear victory for either side. Despite this, Israel and Hamas are each insisting that ‘victory’ was achieved. Israel points to the material results, tunnels and rocket sites destroyed, targeted assassinations completed, and the overall weakening of Hamas capacity to launch an attack. Hamas, for its part, claims political gains, becoming far stronger politically and psychologically in both Gaza and the West Bank than before the fighting began, refusing to give in on the basic Israeli demand of the ‘demilitarization’ of Gaza, as well as further tarnishing Israel’s international reputation.

 

The UN Human Rights Commission has taken what for it is an exceptional step of appointing…

A Hundred Deir Yassin and Counting: Beit Daras and the Buried History of Massacres ~ by Ramzy Baroud

Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

The importance of the Deir Yassin massacre to historians often obscures important facts. One amongst them is that Deir Yassin was one of many massacres perpetrated by Zionist troops, including Haganah units, stresses Ramzy Baroud.

Middle East Online | April 17, 2013

Few with any sense of intellectual or historical integrity would still question the bloody massacre that took place in the village of Deir Yassin 65 years ago, claiming the lives of over 100 innocent Palestinians. Attempts at covering up the massacre have been dwarfed by grim details by well-respected historians, including some of Israel’s own.

Even narratives offered by historians such as Benny Morris – an honest researcher who remained committed to Zionism despite the ghastly history he had himself uncovered – presented a harrowing version of the events that unfolded on that day: “Whole families were riddled with bullets… men, women, and children were mowed down as…

Shocking and Horrific Footage: Zionist Crimes Against Jewish People

Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

Zionist Israeli Thugs are beating up and using tasers on members of the Orthodox Neturei Karta.




Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews protesting the desecration of graves by a highway construction project near Haifa were attacked and brutally beaten by private security guards hired by the Ministry of Transportation.

The group, known for being outspokenly critical of the State of Israel and its very existence were peacefully demonstrating at the time. This attack follows a long history of violence against the Orthodox Jewish community.

Consistent with fundamental Jewish beliefs, some of these protesters often take part in demonstrations, side by side with Palestinians, against the State of Israel and its inhuman policies toward the Palestinian people.” The apparent strategy of using organized violence through private security personnel against these peaceful protesters is only one of many tactics used by the State of Israel to intimidate and discourage further protests. The police were nowhere…

▶ Israel’s Wall Of Shame

Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

July 31, 2014 by @occpal | Latest update Aug 31, 2014 | Continuously updated

One of ‘Israel’s biggest twats: Ambassador Ron Dermer said at an event hosted by the Christians United for Israel group that Israel deserved a Nobel Peace Prize for restraint shown by it’s “most moral army

I wonder if the hosting Christian society thinks that over again! Dear Christians…:

Do you know how Israel really thinks about you?

We do.

So we build this wall of shame. Because Ron and Israel, you need to get past this wall of shame first before claiming a Nobel peace Prize. The common sense people of this world will not let you get away with the crimes committed by Israel against the whole of humanity.

But first some facts:


For those living in complete ignorance:

It is not even about Palestinians, or Muslims. Israel even attacks it’s own Jews

Watch: US broadcaster Mike Malloy wipes the floor with Israel apologists

Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

Reasoning with a Zionist is an oxymoron. It is as self-contradictory as saying something is falsely true.

This, we have no doubt, is the conclusion everyone who has tried to have a rational, fact-based debate with Zionists would have drawn.

If that is also your experience – or if you have never had the misfortune of debating with a Zionist – then you will want to listen to the two short clips below from Mike Malloy’s radio show.

For those who don’t know him, Malloy is a self-syndicated American radio broadcaster from Atlanta, Georgia, who describes himself as “a traditional liberal democrat doing his part to return the Democratic Party to its liberal roots”.

In this clip, he routs a Zionist caller who uses the jaded argument that Israel, the aggressor and occupier, has a right to defend its ill-gotten gains.




And in the clip…
