The End Of Israel

Israel Is Too Small to Last Even One Week of Real War.

“First of all we take every little threat serious even if it comes from the weakest country in the world,” he said in an interview with Danish television channel TV2.

Salehi added that Iran does not consider Israeli claims or threats as real threats.

“What is Israel? It is such a small entity that it cannot withstand one week of real war; not one week,” he emphasized.

The Iranian foreign minister further noted that if Israel really decided to attack nuclear facilities in Iran, Tehran’s response will be one of full force.

THE ZIONIST DOGS

Soldiers released an attack dog on unarmed Palestinians at a Friday anti-occupation demonstration in the West Bank village of Kufr Qaddoum, report eyewitnesses that include an AP photographer. According to a report from Jonathan Pollack, a political activist, Border Police officers released an army dog at a group of protesters who were standing several dozen meters away. The dog chased the protesters, then locked his jaw on the arm of one of them – Ahmad Shtawi – sinking his teeth into the man’s arm. The dog refused for several minutes to respond to his handler’s order to release Mr. Shtawi’s arm.

Canadian Jews denounce Israeli war threats against Iran

 

 

The Israel lobby tries to portray Jewish Canadians as members of a monolithic community that supports Israel and Zionism. In reality however, many Jews denounce Israeli crimes against the Palestinians as well as its war mongering policies against Iran. In fact Jewish groups particularly Independent Jewish Voices of Canada have played a major part in organizing rallies against a war with Iran.

Twenty-four Palestinian are on hunger strike

Officials within the Israeli prison authority have expressed concern about the increasing phenomenon of Palestinian prisoners, especially administrative detainees, going on hunger strike. The numbers have risen after Khader Adnan went on hunger strike for 66 days resulting in a decision not to extend his detention and for him to be released next month.

According to sources with the authority, 23 Palestinian prisoners, not including Hana Al-Shalabi who has been on a hunger strike for about a month, started a hunger strike in the past few days. Most are administrative detainees being held without charge or trial.

Israeli prison officials and the Knesset should be infinitely concerned about how these hunger strikers are being perceived in the court of world public opinion,

That Israel, the alleged “only democracy in the Middle East”, is practicing indefinite detention without charge or due process, contravenes basic human rights and is pathologically inconsistent with a democratic government!

And to the Israeli politicians who are upset in realizing that this reality is now worldwide public knowledge, I have a reasonable suggestion: change the law!Either have something with which you can charge Palestinians in a court of law, or release them: it’s just that simple.

Of course, the Israeli politicians won’t do this; if Palestinians die from these hunger strikes, they will simply characterize these deaths as “asymetric warfare, designed to deligitimize Israel’s standing in the world“.

UN body “appalled” by Israel’s racial segregation policies

Israel is criticized for violating the right to equality in a new report by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD).

An advance version of the CERD report indicates that racial prejudice can be found in almost every facet of Israeli life (“Concluding observations of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination,” 9 March 2012 [PDF]).

I could have imagined, having been founded by the children of Holocaust survivors, that Israel would have become the poster child for tolerance, human rights, and democracy.

However in the 21st century, Israel can only be reasonably characterized as a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons; and that is unfortunate for not only Israel, but the world.

Administrative Detention: Israel’s Way of Bypassing Justice

Tens of thousands of Palestinians and their families have suffered from the humiliation brought on by a single law, one that Israel uses to jail people without charges.

Ramallah – There is no doubt that the historic hunger strike by Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan, a leading member of Islamic Jihad – which lasted for 66 days – cast a light on the injustice of the occupation’s administrative detention law.

Now female prisoner, Hana Shalabi, is doing the same. She has just completed 28 days of an open-ended hunger strike which began with her arrest on February 16. She is striking in protest against her arrest, method of interrogation, and strip search.

There can be no true “democracy” in a country which practices administrative/indefinite Detention, because indefinite detention is a basic contravention of human rights and due process.

So when anyone with whom you speak prattles on about “Israel being the only true democracy in the Middle East.”, please remind them about this practice, won’t you?!?!?

Welcome to “normal” for peaceful Palestinian protestors.

Coins from 17AD found under Jerusalem’s Western Wall hints sacred site NOT built by Herod

The history of one of the world’s holiest sites – sacred to both Jews and Muslims – is set to be rewritten, following a surprise discovery in a ritual bath beneath the complex.

It proves that the Wall – supposedly built by Herod, the Jewish king who features prominently in the Gospels, was in fact built much later.

In Ancient Egypt, Canaan revisited without Israel

Unlike the old school of biblical archeology, which grabbed the spade in one hand and the bible in the other, modern archeologists describe their approach as one which views the Bible as one of the important artifacts into which centuries of Near Eastern cultural accumulations [Egyptian, Phoenician and Sumerian] had been integrated and sometimes copycatted [but] not the unquestioned narrative framework every archaeological find has to fit into.

Despite the scarcity of archeological finds that corroborate the veracity of the Hebrew bible’s narrative, modern archeology doesn’t deny the Israelites existed; rather it states they only existed quite differently.
