Report on Russel Tribunal on Palestine NYC, 10/6&7 Report

On October 6th and 7th, the Russel Tribunal on Palestine was held in the
Great Hall at Cooper Union in NYC.  I attended this conference, and what I
took away from it confirmed the US role in sustaining Israel's human rights
abuses in Palestine, which clearly amount to Crimes Against Humanity under
International Law and Basic Laws of Morality.  These are the reasons for
charging Israel with Crimes Against Humanity in the World Court in the
Hague.

1) Israel practices a policy of a severe form of apartheid in the occupied
territories which is based on exclusive rights for those who are Jewish and
virtually no rights for those who are not.  Apartheid is a Crime Against
Humanity.

2) Land is confiscated from Palestinians and houses demolished to make way
for settlements and housing where only Jews can live. The Palestinians
affected are made homeless.  This is a Crime Against Humanity.

Swedish Aid Ship to Gaza Picks Up Passengers in Italy

By Stefan Jonsson

Outside La Spezia train station in Italian Liguria there is an old plane tree. The branches are not strong enough to bear their own weight but are propped up by steel girders that are attached to the concrete foundations. From the tree of life by the station, I walk along winding streets through a town that seems to be both freshly painted and public-spirited. Sheets and garments flutter from clothes lines stretching across backyards and alleyways.

The streets lead out into the harbour where the water shimmers in the October sunshine. There are crowds of people enjoying a leisurely Sunday stroll on the middle pier on their way to the schooner Estelle. It is moored in La Spezia for a few days on its way from Umeå to Gaza.

Who is sailing with the Estelle to Gaza to end the blockade?

Passenger I: Elik Elhanan, Israel

Elik Elhanan, Tel Aviv, Israel, is one of the passengers on board the Estelle on its last lap toward Gaza. He belongs to a well-known Israeli family whose forefathers emigrated to Palestine in the 1920s. His great-grandfather was the first Israeli ambassador to Sweden . His grandfather, Matti Peled, a general, was the first military person of high standing to oppose the 1972 occupation, and he formed peace groups with the Palestinians. He later retired from the army and devoted his time to writing a PhD in Arabic literature.

Erik is 35 years old now. When he was young he was a punk rocker. In 1995 he joined the Israeli army and became a paratrooper, over time advancing to become a member of an elite formation.

On 4th September 1997, his 16-year-old sister Smadar Elhanan was on her way back from school on the Ben Yehuda Avenue in Jerusalem. It was the first week of the school term and many people were out on the streets. That afternoon, three suicide bombers blew themselves up on Ben Yehuda. Five people died and twenty were wounded.

When Elik heard about the atrocity in his regiment, he called home, as did everyone in Jerusalem. There nobody had heard any news. When he called again, a neighbour answered. His parents had gone to identify their daughter. She and her best friend were among the dead.

Following the death of Smadar, Elik’s mother Noret Pelled Elhanan declared that she held the Israeli government and its politics of occupation responsible for the death of her daughter.

When Elik had completed his military service, he left the army and travelled around the world for almost two years before settling in Paris, where he sought contact with activists from countries around the world, working against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. His parents were involved in “We lost a child”, an organisation for Palestinian and Israeli parents who had lost their children. Two years ago, his father Rami participated in an entirely Jewish Ship to Gaza to end the blockade. On board were several survivors from the holocaust. They were stopped.

In 2002, Elik joined the soldiers who refused to take part in the war against Gaza, a group calling itself “The courage to refuse”. In 2004 he returned to Israel and, together with Palestinians who had been set free from Israeli prisons formed an organisation called “Combatants for peace”.

As I write these notes, we pass the Messina strait with Elik on board the Estelle. He sees the Israeli blockade of Gaza as criminal. Europe could easily apply pressure on Israel in the matter, as 40% of Israel’s trade goes to Europe. But, according to Elik, Europe and Israel appear to have reached an agreement as follows: Europe is absolved of the holocaust, and in turn does not protest against the Israeli occupation and oppression of the Palestinians.

Palestine: One or Two State Solution

 

Palestine: One or Two State Solution

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Opinions vary. Why isn't clear. Years ago, two states were possible. No longer. Israel controls over half the West Bank and much of East Jerusalem. More is added daily. 

 

When completed, the apartheid wall will control over 10% of Palestine. Isolated ghettoized bantustans on worthless scrubland won't work. Under those conditions, sovereign viability is impossible.

This Land Is Their Land

Palestine belongs to Palestinians. They're willing to settle for what lies within 1967 borders. It's 22% of what they lost. They also rightfully claim East Jerusalem as their capital. It's theirs, not Israel's.

 

Israeli settlements are illegal. This article discusses Migron. It's one of dozens of illegal Israeli outposts. Over 100 exist.

Last September, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) published an "Informational Pamphlet for Demonstrators in the Occupied Territories."

 

Beyond the Two-State Solution

Fast forward to 2048. The world is greatly changed, and in this year China invades France, occupying Paris and a good portion of the nation. The French are massacred, evicted, raped, chased, and terrorized. Towns are destroyed. Every town and village has its name changed to a Chinese name, and its prior existence erased from any history books produced from then forward.

Portions of France not yet under Chinese control shelter refugees by the millions. French citizens captured in their homes are held as "prisoners of war" and freed to become refugees in distant parts of France. China changes the name of its occupied areas from France to Chance. The remaining parts of the country are just referred to by their local (Chinese) names, as if they were part of no nation at all and yet somehow Chinese in the end.

Talk Nation Radio: An Israeli General's Son Meets Palestinians, Reverses His Beliefs

What happens when an Israeli from a Zionist military family meets Palestinians and hears their side of the story?  Miko Peled was brought around to researching the history of Israel and of his own family.  His grandfather signed Israel's Declaration of Independence.  His father was a general in the war of 1967.  His neice was killed in a suicide attack in Jersalem.  He has come to see the story of Israel as virtually the reverse of what he had believed.  Peled discusses his new book, The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, with a foreword by Alice Walker.

Yasser Arafat's Bout With ... Polonium?

The Mystery of Arafat’s Death

July 10, 2012

Editor Note: In 2004, when Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat suddenly fell ill and died, suspicions swirled that he might have been poisoned, but no autopsy was performed. Now, nearly eight years later, his death is getting new scrutiny, though ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern doubts a complete answer will ever be found.

By Ray McGovern

We may never know with complete certainty whether the still unexplained health crisis that suddenly did in Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was due to natural or unnatural causes. But the recent discovery of polonium on Arafat’s clothing, added to a considerable body of circumstantial evidence, has increased an already widespread suspicion that Israel was involved in his sudden demise.

Gaza Blockade's Fifth Anniversary

  Gaza Blockade’s Fifth Anniversary

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Gaza's blockade is illegal. Collective punishment is prohibited. Fourth Geneva's Article 33 states:

 

"No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited."

Israel Upside Down

Miko Peled has written a perfect book for people, including Israelis, who have always heard that the Israeli government can do no wrong.  The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine is partly an account of the author's father's life.  His father, Matti Peled, was an Israeli general, war hero, military governor of the Gaza strip, member of Parliament, professor, and columnist who turned against the occupation of Palestine. 

Largely, however, the book is an account of Miko Peled's own life, and the evolution of his thinking about Israel. This autobiographical narrative, by a very likable and moral author, takes us step by step from unquestioning Zionism to condemnation of Israeli war crimes.  For those who would condemn the morality of this intellectual journey, there are two obvious responses.  First, read it. 

Second, the false accusations of hating Israel that often result from any sensible proposal to protect Israel from its government cannot easily apply here, by the accusers' own logic, because the author dutifully performed his Israeli military service, and his father killed a huge number of people in the name of Israel.

Such shallow prejudices have no place in this book, which respectfully and non-confrontationally persuades the reader gradually, through the course of a self-questioning life's story, that much of what is commonly assumed about Israel is in fact the reverse of reality.  The Peled family's military history is of less interest as superficial immunity from false accusations, than as a starting place for an argument that runs its course from the necessity of brutalizing Palestinians all the way through to the necessity of Israelis and Palestinians living together as friends and family.

Miko Peled grew up in Jerusalem believing that Israel had always been a little David struggling honorably against an Arab Goliath.  His grandfather, Avraham Katznelson, had been an important figure in the founding of Israel.  His father, Matti Peled, had in 1948 fought in either the War of Independence or the Catastrophe, depending on which label one prefers.   Matti Peled was also a leader of the Six-Day War of 1967, when Miko -- born in 1961 -- was a child.

Palestinian Hunger Strikes Continue

Israeli Attack on Gaza, June 3-4, 2012

R

the night of June 3, 2012, Israel conducted a series of air raids hitting several areas in the Gaza Strip. At about 2:00 am, the Israeli Air Force struck:

  • an inhabited house in Nuseirat refugee camp, central Gaza Strip. The house was struck by 4 missiles. Seven people were injured including 4 children;
  • an uninhabited area to the west of Nuseirat, in this case the missile has remained unexploded;
  • an uninhabited area between a mosque and a house, always in Nuseirat;
  • a farm in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip;
  • a farm in Beit Lahia, northern Gaza Strip;
  • an uninhabited house in Deir el Balah, in the central Gaza Strip;

The following night, June 4, 2012, the Israeli Air Force struck again several areas in the Gaza Strip:

  • a farm that produces cheese in the Zaitoun, east of Gaza City;
  • an uninhabited area in El Kashif mountain, north of Gaza City.

On June 4, in the morning, I went to visit the house in Nuseirat.  The house is completely destroyed. Two missiles have left two deep holes in the ground. Inside the house, two missiles punctured the ceiling of the bedroom, one of which also went through a wall. Debris and glass were scattered everywhere.


Another home nearby was heavily damaged. Part of the ceiling collapsed on a cot where a little girl of 3 months named Deema was sleeping
.


Video I shot on the spot:


 

http://youtu.be/9ujPPL-lpGo

Ibrahim Khalil Alfiqi, 23, was alone in the home hit by four missiles.

The house was destroyed where he was soon to be living with his wife. In a month they were to hold a party for their wedding. Ibrahim had prepared everything. The bedroom was ready.


He had put a mattress in a room of the house where he was sleeping every night, next to the bedroom. At about 2:00 am, Ibrahim was awakened by a huge explosion. The door of the bedroom fell on him and he was hit by fragments of the ceiling. When he started to move the door to go outside he heard another explosion. He tried to open the outer door but did not succeed. Then he heard another explosion. He pushed the door with force and escaped. He went to the home of his brother Mohammed, next to his, and asked him how he was. He saw the ceiling of the house of his brother damaged.

 

Deema, the baby girl on whom part of the ceiling collapsed was injured. Ibrahim also saw some cousins ​​wounded. Ibrahim had a bleeding leg. He was transported by ambulance to the hospital together with Deema. Deema, 3 months, was subjected to X-rays and has reported several cuts because of the ceiling collapsed on her body, and a concussion to head due to the impact of the ceiling.

 

Alive by a miracle.


Ibrahim was wounded by shrapnel from a missile on the leg and bruising due to the impact of the door that fell on him.

 

Ibrahim then immediately wanted to leave the hospital because his mother was very worried and thought that the little girl was dead.

 

"I ran away not knowing what had happened in my house - says Ibrahim - then on my return from the hospital I saw that the bedroom was destroyed. Alhamdulilah I said, having survived, but looking at the room I wondered how I would rebuild it again."

 

Ibrahim has to buy replacements for every thing.  He has to buy windows, to replace the ceiling. Ibrahim earns only between 700 and 800 shekels a month, he can not now buy what the house needs.


His brother Mohammed Khalil Alfiqi, 26, was asleep in the home next door with his wife and two children, Deema, 3 months, and Leen, 3 years.


"It was about 2:00 in the morning - said Mohammed - we were sleeping. Suddenly we heard an explosion near the home of my brother Ibrahim. My brother works as a mechanic, not working for any political party, is a civilian. The celebration of his wedding is set for July 6. He does not have much money, he went into debt to buy everything for his apartment. "

 

The explosions also damaged the house of Mohammed. His daughter Deema, three months, was sleeping in the crib when the ceiling collapsed on her body. His wife and eldest daughter, Leen, have received medical assistance on site. Deema was instead transported to 'Al-Aqsa hospital in Deir El Balah. Deema reported bruising to the skull, cuts to the arms, stomach, close to one eye and a leg.


Mohammed earns about 1700 shekels a month, and pays university tuition for his wife, claims his father who does not work, and her sisters who are studying at university. Their family is from Swafet.


In total, people injured in this attack are seven: Alfiqi Ibrahim, 23 years; Deema Alfiqi, 3 months; Alfiqui Tareq, 23 years; Jebreel Mohammed, 4 years; Feras Jebreel, 5 years; Jebreel Hussien, 16 years; Wesam Jebreel , 3 years. The last four in that list reported cuts caused by glass and rubble.

The family of Mohammed invites me to sit down in the courtyard of the house of Ibrahim, among the rubble.


A relative asks the small Leen, 3 years old, "Who woke you up this morning?", "A bomb," says Leen.


Some families invite me to stay for lunch ... as if it were a normal day.


As if the missiles had not just destroyed their home. As if we were not among the rubble. I remain amazed once again at the power of these people, and they are fascinated and enamored of their reception among the rubble of their eyes, which, despite everything, I smile.

On June 4, I went to the farm destroyed overnight by an Israeli bombardment. The farm is located in an inhabited area in Zaytoun, eastern Gaza city.


The farm is completely destroyed. The roof, shattered on the ground, still has a huge hole caused by the bomb dropped from an F-16. There was an unbearable smell of chlorine mixed with milk and cheese. One of the owners of the farm told us that the bombing occurred at 1 .15 at night. There was no one inside the farm, but a passerby was injured. The farm produces milk and cheese, and is the fifth time that was bombed. The last attack took place a year ago. Six families depend on this farm, every family is composed of eight persons. One family sold their house to be able to rebuild and now lives at another house to rent. "It is a new distastro - said one of the owners - we do not know how to begin again." Some owners are opposed to re-build the farm, fearing to be destroyed again.

Israeli spokesmen have announced that they had hit military targets. Many international media have reported the statements of Israeli spokesmen. The truth is otherwise.


The truth is made up of civilian homes reduced to rubble, collapsed ceilings at night, families of impoverished, frightened eyes of children, were wounded.


The Gazawi rebuild their lives from the rubble once again.

Two years ago I was a passenger on the first Gaza Freedom Flotilla which was sailing to break the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza. I watched from a small boat called the Challenger 1, as a much larger boat, the Mavi Marmara, with almost 600 passengers, was brutally attacked by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) commandos. 30 minutes later, our boat was attacked.

Neocons Mount Another Pre-emptive Strike on History

Applying the Six-Day War to Iran

May 17, 2012

Editor Note: America’s neocons continue to beat the drums for war with Iran, brushing aside warnings even from Israeli intelligence veterans. Another part of the propaganda is to merge a future war against Iran with the heroic memories of the Six-Day War nearly 45 years ago, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern notes.

By Ray McGovern

With the 45th anniversary of the Six-Day War of June 1967 coming early next month, pro-Israel pundits like syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer are again promoting Israel’s faux-narrative on the reasons behind Israel’s decision to attack its neighbors.
