‘Demolishing’ is Stealing the name of Israel game

Colonialism was a commercial enterprise abandoned by most civilized states

Israeli forces, Wednesday, took over thousands of dunams in Ya’abad, southwest Jenin, in the northern West Bank, according to the PNN. Additionally, 78 new settlement units have been approved in occupied East Jerusalem.

Director of the Ministry of Local Government, Mr. Ra’ed Muqabel, said that Israeli forces served eviction threats to dozens of citizens from areas near Yaabad (Um Dar, Nazlat Zeid, Zibda, Khiljan and other areas), even though they possessed official documents proving ownership of the property.

Muqabel added that the decision was signed by a military order issued in 2009, and recently adjusted, prohibiting land owners from using their lands for construction or farming.

The Jewish existential threat result of their own isolation


by Marivel Guzman

The inevitable is coming, The Zionists’ dream to create a ‘Jew State’ in Palestine, what they (Zionists) insist in calling their homeland has failed. The Zionist apartheid entity has not been able achieved a status of a nation, and time is running out for them, the closest to a State they got, it’s a military dictatorship ‘entity’.  They’ forged’ history to their convenience, and after all, all they got was a mimic of a nation. A nation infected with nationalism, with invented threats, inflicting fear into the same soul of the Jew, now more than ever the Jews feel a real threat to their own existence as an isolated group. They will be forced to integrate into society to protec themselves and survive another era.

 

“The recent UN General Assembly vote recognising Palestine as a state with observer status requires a more complex analysis, but it does reveal Israel’s utter isolation in the world community.”Zionism as a failed project,” by Nivedita Menon”

 

The global Jewish community has to thank the Anti-Defamation League for fueling a non-existent threat. Now after years of fear-mongering the threat have become real, besides of being victims of Israel’s harvested hate, now they are persecuted as the Zionists want them to believe since the beginning, and now the same global Jewry  have discovered the scheme, and they themselves are unmasking the Apartheid Zionist entity.

Semarian Palestinian Jews in the Holy Land

On Semarian Palestinian Jews in the Holy Land

On the other hand the Palestinian Jews have come to the conclusion that they have always been in their homeland, that promise land that their holy books speaks of. It has always been there , the others, the settlers, the new comers, the impostors and land thieves backed by a militay enterprise called Israel.

Some Israelis supporters Jewish writers blame the progressive Jews for the ills of Israel project, attacking a non-existential threat as real and blaming the Jewish that feel the need of walking away from the Zionist scheme.

“Anti-Semitism is on the rise — and progressive Jews are to blame, according to a recent essay published by the American Jewish Committee (“‘Progressive’ Jewish Thought and the New Anti-Semitism”). Its author, Alvin Rosenfeld, argues that sharp criticism of Israel is equivalent to arguing that Israel shouldn’t exist — which means Jews shouldn’t exist.” said Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz, in its article ‘Some Notes on Anti-Semitism from a Progressive Jewish Perspective‘ published in Jews currents in its March 2007 edition.”

What transpire in the ‘Anti-Semitism from a Progressive Jewish Perspective’  is the repetitive argument that ‘everyone is coming to get the Jews,’ and if-you-are-not-with-me-you-are-against-me-argument, Zionists defenders would blame the earth for the fail of their project, but, will never blame themselves for attemping to change history.

When the state of Israel finally falls it won’t be due to Palestinians, Islamic fundamentalists, anti-Semites or neo-Nazis. No, the final undoing of the Jewish state will be wrought by progressive Western Jews themselves. Zionism, you see, is a right-wing, National Socialist ideology and is in sharp conflict with the tenets of progressivism. When it comes down to a choice between the two, Western Jews, particularly Americans, will choose progressivism and Israel will go the way of South Africa. Increasingly progressive American Jews are not going to be able to reconcile the reality of Israel with the liberal internationalism, open immigration and anti-racism that they have been supporting and promoting in the West for years. The cognitive dissonance will be too much. But don’t take my word for itCesar Maldonado said, facebook user”

 

 

Mondoweiss.net published a significant article-Arendt: Born in conflict, Israel will degenerate into Sparta, and American Jews will need to back away – Mondoweiss- that put flat on the table the argument of the present sentiment of the Jews not only of Jewish philosophers and academics, but that of the Jewish community in general.

“And even if the Jews were to win the war, its end would find the unique possibilities and the unique achievements of Zionism in Palestine destroyed. The land that would come into being would be something quite other than the dream of world Jewry, Zionist and non-Zionist. The ‘victorious’ Jews would live surrounded by an entirely hostile Arab population, secluded into ever-threatened borders, absorbed with physical self-defense to a degree that would submerge all other interests and acitvities. The growth of a Jewish culture would cease to be the concern of the whole people; social experiments would have to be discarded as impractical luxuries; political thought would center around military strategy…. And all this would be the fate of a nation that — no matter how many immigrants it could still absorb and how far it extended its boundaries (the whole of Palestine and Transjordan is the insane Revisionist demand)–would still remain a very small people greatly outnumbered by hostile neighbors.”  wrote Hannah Arendt in a essay published in The Jewish Writings in 2007″

 

The facts do not lie, Israel did not take a lesson from history and is now doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.

 

“We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield.

—George Orwell, “In Front of Your Nose””

 

In history Jews have insisted in maintaining themselves in isolation, keeping their communities acting as micro-cities, but at the same time inserting themselves into the political system of their states, soon to be controling but without relinquishing their status as autonomous entities.
All throughout history Jewish blocks have been expelled from the states that gave them shelter and allowed them to flourish. The latest example would be the vilified Germany.

 

Nationalism is bad enough when it trusts in nothing but the rude force of the nation. A nationalism that necessarily and admittedly depends upon the force of a foreign nation is certainly worse. This is the threatened state of Jewish nationalism and of the proposed Jewish state, surrounded inevitably by Arab states and Arab people. Even a Jewish majority in Palestine–nay even a transfer of all Palestine’s Arabs, which is openly demanded by the revisionists–would not substantially change a situation in which Jews must either ask protection from an outside power against their neighbors or come to a working agreement with their neighbors…Read the entire article in Mondoweiss

Gaza 50 days War: Hamas’s Return Ticket to the Middle East



By Wahid Mardane
Researcher at Neda Institute

Hamas military wing resistance fighters

Hamas military wing resistance fighters

October 19, 2014(Tehran, Iran)-After many ups and downs across the Rafah border and early the return of Hamas’s ideological father (Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood) to the pages of history and consequently Hamas’s confusion against the region’s balance in that juncture, most experts acknowledged that this movement had stepped into a period of weakness and even annihilation in its history as political force. The unexpected departure from Syria of the leadership of Hamas, and its turn to the political-ideological front of traditional compromising states in the region, including; Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, etc. from the one hand and Israelis’ spreading “red carpets” to this movement including suppling of cement and drinking water to Gaza Strip, giving more concessions to Gaza’s fishermen. besides, some of Israeli political and military officials comments like the Northern command on preferring Hamas over other factions in Gaza, this caused the future of the resistance in the region  to be added to the other multiple puzzles in the Middle East.There is the possibility that many of the experts do not have any information about the military capabilities of Hamas or they have neglected it, because in the afore-mentioned juncture authentic news were broadcast about strained relations between Hamas and the Islamic Republic of Iran and even the two sides confirmed it. Therefore, very few people were thinking about the fact that in the very juncture, political and military deals were running between Iran-Syria and Hamas and even the political crisis I Egypt and Iran-Hamas disputes behind the doors had made the Zionists neglect the arms transfer to Gaza.Now, after the Zionists’ invasion of Gaza, the Resistance Faction’s advanced arms and offensive-defensive systems are conspicuously visible. In this regard, chief of Hamas’s foreign relations, Osama Hamdan remarks that the Resistance is of the readiness to continue the war for months even if Hams is the initiator of the next war with the purpose of taking the occupied territories out of the claws of the Zionists.

In fact what is currently going on about Hamas can be mentioned as a tangible example of turning a threat into an opportunity. Gaza war took place under the circumstances where Hamas was held accountable by the Iranian and Syrian public opinions and elites for its performance about Syrian and Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt. Therefore, since Hamas was aware of its defensive and arms advances, it was waiting for a chance to see its flag once again at the hands of the Resistance supporters in the region. Now, one can acknowledge that once again this flag has become an identity-constructing one and maybe it is for this reason that Hamas is not keen on putting an end to the war.

This hypothesis seems to be true for 5 reasons:

Stop of Israel-Hamas serial wars
Both Palestinian and Zionist analysts are of the belief that Israel-Hamas wars have been like a never-ending series and will continue as episodes. The time and place and characters change, but according to the definition of episode “place and time of the characters change, but the players and the main subject do not change.” Now, the place of war has been shifted from air to land and the characters from the air force to the land force. So, knowing this, Hamas is going to have more interventions in the scenario of the war of 2014 in order to write its script for its favor.
Change in the intervals of upcoming wars from short to long

Hamas is going to prolong the average interval of its wars against the Zionists from a couple of years to a decade at least. The war of 2008, Gaza siege in 2010 and the war of 2012 and also the recent war of 2014 are indicative of a 2 year pattern in the intervals of the cease fire which is to be changed. In the unwritten goals of the Zionist officials, the notion of a severe war against Gaza with the purpose of achieving a more prolonged peace and security had been applied which can confirm the bi-directionality of the mentioned goal.

Proof of Hamas’s development and maturity without the “assistant wheels” of other countries
Hamas is keen to show that without Syria and Egypt’s spiritual and geopolitical supports, it can continue its resistance and proceed with a draft of getting out of war without the intervention of the Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt’s new system. Of course, Hamas should know that the present and upcoming victories may once again intoxicate them and cause them to make the same mistakes as they did in the political sphere in connection with Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Hence, there is no doubt that the independence of Hamas should be the top priority of pro-resistance countries; but by the time it is fully achieved, assistant wheels should be relied on.
Finding a chance for break time in domestic sphere
Concurrent with the war of 2014, Hamas temporarily got out of the socio-economic crisis it was suffering from. Not payment of the employees’ salaries, striking growth of poverty and unemployment and Gaza people’s social dissatisfactions were among other major issues which had put Hamas in a weak position. But, now concurrent with the war, not only it is not accused as the initiator of misfortunes from the domestic and international point of view, but it is introduced as a savior.

War of 2014 as a return ticket to the region
With surprising psychological and military achievements in the war of 2014, the resistance factions have managed to get the ticket of a powerful return to the region. All in all, as expected, the war of 2014 like the previous ones turned out to be short, because in less than ten days serious proposals for cease fire were offered mediated by Egypt which were supposed to be accepted immediately by the resistance factions as in the previous wars. But we had argued that a cease fire in less than 10 days had depended on the reaction of the resistance factions and these factions seized the new chance in which there were a shortage of mediators and less pressure from the previous compromising Islamic states and thus, they prolonged the war as long as they got more concessions.

The victory of Gaza Children against IDF in 50 days Gaza-imposed-war!
Therefore, a historical victory for the resistance factions due to their steadfastness on the continuation of the war it happened and today we can see fresh eyes on Gaza after 50 days typhoon. Now we can yield and praised the victory of Gaza’s children against IDF. So the new generation of Gaza is known as the Palestine future Iron Domes.
Possibly, the next episode of the Zionists’ war against the resistance factions will take place underground, under the land of the prophets and we should wait some new defence systems by Israel as the Underground Iron Domes.

Neda Institute for Scientific Political Research was established in 1996. Due to the direct impacts of the establishment of the Israeli usurper regime on the international policies, particularly on the Middle East and the world of Islam, a group of researchers, Middle East and international relations of islam’s world followers established Neda institute and launched a new move in the developments of the region. The main object of such institute is to acquaintance with the existing political mechanisms in the Middle East as well as a deeper understanding of current social, political, cultural and economic developments of the political units in the region.

Celebrities for Palestine shows their support through cultural boycott – Junot Diaz

Artists and Intellectuals Including Junot Díaz, Chuck D, and Boots Riley Call for Boycott and Divestment from Israel

More #Celebrities4Pal openly coming out endorsing Palestine, the voices are growing louder and thicker. Every day we discover more celebrities adding their voices to Cultural Boycott against Israel.
Junot Diaz, the 45-year-old Dominican-American Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology,  fiction editor at Boston Review. He also serves on the board of advisers for Freedom University, a volunteer organization in Georgia that provides post-secondary instruction to undocumented immigrants. Diaz is Pulitzer winner author of several books; This is How you Lose her, Drown, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, (Wikipedia)

Last September  Diaz called on the Brooklyn Book Festival to reject sponsorship from Israel’s Office of Cultural Affairs. In an open Letter to the Brooklyn Book Festival advising against accepting Israeli Sponsorship

Tell the Brooklyn Book Festival to no longer accept partnerships with the Israeli government or complicit institutions.

“It is deeply regrettable that the Festival has chosen to accept funding from the Israeli government just weeks after Israel’s bloody 50-day assault on the Gaza Strip, which left over 2100 Palestinians – including 500 children – dead, displaced a fourth of the population, destroyed homes, schools, and hospitals, and involved numerous potential war crimes. Sustaining a partnership with the Israeli Consulate at this time amounts to a tacit endorsement of Israel’s many violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.” An excerpt from the open letter to the Brooklyn Book Festival

 

On September 30,  during his Lecture at Clark University he made mention of the pressure scholars feel when they speak out for Palestine, and shared his personal experiences as a call to support the Palestinian people.

“We are extremely excited to have an author of Diaz’s stature visit Clark,” said Paul Posner, director of the University’s Latin American and Latino Studies concentration and faculty organizer of the event.  “His work deals with issues – colonialism’s legacy in Latin America, cultural identity and language, immigration and gender relations, among others – that are of central importance to many of our students and faculty.”
Endorsing The U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel a statement from Diaz was published as a Press release saying that Diaz joins Chuck D and Boots Riley as prominent artists who have recently endorsed the boycott

” If there exists a moral arch to the universe then Palestine will eventually be free but that promised day will never arrive unless we, the justice-minded peoples of our world, fight to end the cruel blight of the Israeli occupation. Our political, religious and economic leaders have always been awesome at leading our world into conflict, only we the people alone with little else but our courage and our solidarities and our invincible hope can lead our world into peace.” Junot Diaz

 

Every day we discover a new Celebrities4palestine showing either they disgust for Israel Apartheid policy of segregation or their open support for Palestine.
It is commendable to recognize their openness, knowing that they are risking their careers. In the US it is career suicide to support Palestine, but when in comes to persons of integrity they can’t hide it, it is against their moral compass.

ICC decides not to prosecute Israel for Mavi Marmara massacre

November 8, 2014 1 comment

Another insult to justice was just published early morning today. International Court of Justice in the Hague prosecutor said, that even though there are basis to believe war crimes were committed in the Mavi Marmara in May 2010 when Israel commands aboarded the Gaza bound flotilla and killed 8 Turkish national and one American, the evidence is not “terrible enought” to prosecute Israel, The ICC prosecutor said.

Prosecutors found that while there was a “reasonable basis” to believe IDF soldiers had committed war crimes during the raid, the crimes in question were not of sufficient gravity to fall under the court’s jurisdiction.

Exclusive: Nine Turkish men on board Mavi Marmara were shot a total of 30 times, autopsy results reveal, says the Guardian at its June 30, 2010

On November 6, 2013, Anadolu Agency published an interview with
Retired Major General Amos Yadlin who was the chief of the military intelligence during the deadly raid in 2010 that killed nine Turkish citizens on board. “What happened with Mavi Marmara was a great mistake. Both Israel and Turkey made mistakes and I wish those incidents did not happen. “

I’m terribly disappointed but not at all surprised!

The day of the massacre in the Mavi Marmara every news agency published the terrible facts, in subsequent days the surviving passangers, victims and witnesses gave their testimony to diverse human rights agencies abd when the blood was still fresh in the Mavi Marmara every person of conscience believed that war crimes were committed. 

Hanan Zoabi the Palestinian member of the Knesset smuggled out one of the memory cards from a canera containing vusual evidence of what happened that day. Ken O’Keefe peace activist and humanitarian human shield witness and victim of the Israeli commands have given testimony of that day.
The videos, photos abd scars still exist of Israel war crimes and what was decided yesterday in the Hague can not be nothing but a charade, a travesty if justice.

Last year lawyers representing victims obtained authorization from Comoros, where the Mavi Marmara is registered, to file a lawsuit against Israel on its behalf. Subsequently the prosecutors of the ICC accepted the application and announced that the court would launch an investigation into the Mavi Marmara case.
Well this was last year, this year the ICC change their mind and say no to investigate Israel for war crimes.

We know that #IsraelWarCriminal committed war crimes and eventually will paid every affront to justice.
Keep the #boycott #BDSMovement will force Israel to its knees and eventually to oblivion, when it disappear from the face of the earth.

SodaStream to close illegal settlement factory in response growing boycott campaign | BDSmovement.net


SodaStream after much pressure has closed its doors in the illegal settlement.
Israel can pray its mantra of lies but we know that we rock #BDSMovement rocks and this closure of the factory is due to our pressure Israel is taking political measures to clean its image rotten to the core, now it will try to blame the settlers for all the ills of their political failure, when we know that Israel used the settlers as their best card, now they are in the way. 
Mark my words if Israel don’t start in the near future deporting “Jews” to their countries of origen, offcourse being a racist state and having the same schooling of the founders of the South African Apartheid Regime, they [Israel] will start deporting black skins people first Africans is my guess, then brown skinny people will follow, until they will have a state of only arian race, white as their original plan. The others have completed their role and will be discarded, but that is exactly what will put the last neil to the coffin of the #Apartheid regime.
People, ‘The House of Cards is falling apart’

Celebrities For Palestine – Suheir Hammad her Palestinian blood speaks with her poetry


Suheir Hammad

Suheir Hammad

One of our own #Celebs4Pal Suheir Hammad, a Palestinian poetess, actress and peace activist. Suheir Hamad is a gift to us, to Palestine, to Palestinians, to the Palestinian Solidarity Movement and to the women of the world.  Suheir Hammad’s poetry is empowering by her women inner voice.

Over the years we have witnessed the pain of the land (Palestine) we seen her mothers taking their sons to the grave only with their courage and their pride as mothers of the martyrs of the land.

She is Palestinian one hundred percent Palestinian,  she takes her blood to the stages of the world. Her poetry is powerful, energetic and even though it is sad poetry, her poetry deliver hope.

“As a child I had this sense that God was a huge poet,” she said. Her father taught her nationalist songs, which she later realized were originally written as poems. She then went on to discover for herself the great
Palestinian poetry has this pain ingrained in its soul, Mahmoud Darwish poetry has been an inspiration for thousands of poets, Suheir Hammad, Palestinian herself, said that his poetry played a significant role in her life and eventually in her poetry.

In ‘Salt of the Sea’ Suheir Hammad walks the streets of Palestine showing her (Palestine) terrible tragedy of being occupied land,  “Salt of the Sea’  gives every Palestinian in the exile a taste of Palestine, to the world ‘Salt of the Sea’ gives testimony of an occupy land.

A fact little known is that our #Celebs4Pal Danny Glover, a known American actor was part of the Salt of the Sea production Co-producing of the project.

“The range of international co-producers — including Danny Glover’s Louverture Films — attests to the well-intentioned multinational desire to support Palestinian cinema, and “Salt” has received numerous pre- and post-production grants, including funding from San Sebastian’s Cinema in Motion 3 and the Hubert Bals Fund. Too bad Jacir’s characters are written to explain a situation rather than enjoy an independence of personality.” Variety.com
To understand Suheir’s poetry you need  to understand women’s struggles, Palestinian’s struggles and her being born out of Palestinian refugees that even though have found a place in the world to raise a family they never forget Palestine. How could they?

When she read the script of Salt Of the Sea, she saw poetry in it and acted as Palestinians and not as an actress. The film was a success but as Suheir said,

“the film is really marginalized” she explains, “ but it’s also part of a continuum… so now other films that are not that aesthetic or are not that drive will have a chance now, because it pushed the door open. The victory is to see your position as part of the continuum and that’s where the hope is.”
