International Activists Join Gaza Protestors

By Wafa Aludaini 

In the morning of October 12, 2018, ten activists from around the world delivered messages of support to the Great March of Return in the Eastern Gaza Strip via Skype, as a part of a ‘virtual rally’ entitled “Words Over Walls.”

The speakers hailed from countries as diverse as the US, UK, Brazil, South Africa and Norway. They included authors Mike Peled, Denny Cormier, Robert Martin, Mike Farah, and International Solidarity Movement volunteer Kristin Foss. Participants expressed their solidarity with the Marchers, their tactics and their goals. Musician and composer Mike Farah then sang an original song about the Palestinian’s Right of Return.

“All people of conscience, all people who have a heart, regardless of nationality or religion, must stand with the brave people of Gaza and support their demand to be free and to return to their land and homes in Palestine. The siege on Gaza must be broken and the prison walls that surround Gaza must come down. Palestine must be free,” said author Mike Peled.

 

Another activist said:

“[I’m] just an Australian man who wanted to see the truth, so I went to Palestine and was struck by the blatant abuse of Palestinians by Israel and the loving and welcoming by the Palestinian people,” said activist Robert Martin: “Everything I had read was wrong, the media had lied and I was embarrassed that I had believed [it].”

Additionally, group of anti-Zionist Israelis went near the fence to show solidarity with the Great Return March. They met and spoke with Palestinians activists but were separated by the Israeli siege fence and the Israeli Occupation Forces, who forced them to leave.

The Palestinian Media Youth Group, also known as the “16th October Group,” wishes to thank all of the speakers and hopes to see them soon in a free Palestine. 16th October is a youth Group from Gaza that works with internationals to reveal what is happening in Occupied Palestine, and to expose the brutality of the occupation.

7 brave Palestinians were executed by Israeli Occupation snipers today.

 

 

 

 

 

 




Peter Cohen:

This Friday 12. October:

7 demonstrators killed, at least 252 injured, 154 of them shot by Israeli gunfire, including 50 children, 10 women, 2 medics and a journalist. That makes well over 200 unarmed protestors murdered by Israel since March 30th.

How many Palestinians does Israel have to kill for it to qualify as „news“ in the US?

Trump to Sever all US Aid to UNRWA and Violate Right of Return for Millions of Palestinian Refugees

The Future Belongs to Palestine: Part Three

The Trump Administration announced Friday it’s plans to cut all US aid to UNRWA, withdrawing a whopping $368 Million in annual support to Palestinian refugees. They also announced plans to strip Palestine of their inalienable Right of Return, snubbing UN Resolution 194 and breaking international law with premeditated criminal intent.

UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) serves the 5 million displaced refugees in Gaza, West Bank, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. UNRWA funds hundreds of schools and dozens of hospitals. It also finances water, sanitation, civil society and governance projects, including health care.

The US Government was the number one aid contributor to the Palestinian people, comprising one quarter of the overall humanitarian assistance Palestine receives. These cuts will directly target more than half of the population which is reliant on UNRWA aid to survive.

The global Palestinian population totals 12.7 million. According to UNRWA figures, 5.9 million are registered refugees. More than half the population was forced into exile since the al Nakba terror of 1948.

Within occupied Palestine, 42% of the population are registered refugees on their own land. Of the 2 million population in the besieged Gaza strip, 70% are registered refugees.

The actual number of Palestinian refugees is in reality higher than the UNRWA figures because not all refugees register in the UN system. According to UNRWA figures, we know for a fact that over 75% of the entire Palestinian population are refugees. 

The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) released a report in 2016 with documented evidence that the Israeli occupation controls 774 Palestinian towns and villages. During the al Nakba in 1948, Zionist militia destroyed 531 indigenous towns and villages. The Jewish-Zionist Mafia continued their terrorist activities with a further 70 massacres.

There are ten recognized UNRWA camps for Palestinian refugees in Jordan and 12 in Lebanon. These are utterly impoverished camps, among the poorest on Earth.

Of the Palestinian refugees in Syria, 98% of them rely on UNRWA aid to survive. Over 80% of Gazans need UNRWA aid to prevent starvation. 97% of the water supply in Gaza is poisoned and undrinkable. As predicted in UN reports, Gaza is currently unlivable.

Cutting financial support to UNRWA is premeditated evil, a full frontal assault on the most vulnerable members of society, in which over 50% are innocent children. They didn’t choose the circumstance of their birth, they were born into it. Trump has just signed their death warrants.

U.S. aid to Palestinians takes three main forms:
  1. About $320 million goes toward humanitarian work and projects, and is disbursed by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
  2. $368 million goes to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
  3. Approximately $36 million helps the Palestinian Authority with security.

70% of Mercy Corps runs programs that provide support for communities that have lived through the crises of war. It also works with health centers in the Palestinian territories to develop technology systems, such as electronic medical record-keeping systems and stock-management systems for pharmaceutical supplies, in order to help facilitate better access to health care.

According to The Atlantic, The entire UNRWA funded program will close in September, laying off a total of 20,000 people in Gaza. The Palestinian Authority has already cut salaries to their 40,000 civil servants in Gaza. The unemployment rate of youth between the ages of 18 and 29 in Gaza, is 62% and it is the youth that has the highest rate of suicide and suicide attempts.

Right of Return “off the table”

In an act of “Diplomatic” terrorism, the Trump Administration moved the US Embassy to Palestine’s capital city of Jerusalem on March 30th, directly violating international law. If any U.S. President executes the interests of a foreign power (Israel), placing them above the interests of the American people, that constitutes treason.

This impeachable offense not only empowered the Rothschilds banksters “Deep State,” who literally make a killing from Trump’s record breaking military spending, weapons testing in Gaza and Israeli arms sales. It also rewarded one of Trump’s Jewish Mafia handlers, Sheldon Adelson, who essentially bankrolled Trump’s campaign.

The American President is colluding with a foreign power that carried out the USS Liberty terror attack against the American people and has their fingerprints all over 9/11.

Next, Trump withdrew the US from the world’s most important human rights body in June. It was the first time in history, a member state has voluntarily left the United Nations Human Rights Council (UN).

The Trump Administration’s is Collectively Punishing the entire Palestinian population, in a vulgar demonstration of the Jewish Mafia’s New World Order agenda. Essentially, Jewish supremacists are extorting the Palestinian people into compliance with selling their capital city of Jerusalem as part of the Greater Israel project.

No U.S. President before Trump has stooped this low, treating refugees this inhumane. But it gets even worse.

The Trump Administration also announced it’s plans to strip nearly 5 million Palestinian refugees of their Refugee Right of Return and their children’s Right of Return as stipulated in UN Resolution 194. Who could have seen this coming?

Three quarters of the indigenous Palestinian nation have been ethnically cleansed and displaced from their homeland. When this is brought to an international court of law as evidence, it will constitute the colossal crime of genocide. This is one reason why the Jewish Mafia wishes to strip Palestinian refugees of their right of refugees to return. They are attempting to escape punishment and retribution to the Palestinian people, for their Crimes Against Humanity. Just as the US Government had to pay billions in retribution to the Native American tribes for it’s colonial genocide.

Another key reason for striping Palestinians of their Right of Return is so that Israel can maintain it’s Jewish majority within their Apartheid political system.

Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy in the U.S. that was implement in May, also criminalized all refugees entering the U.S., profiting private military contractors and prison corporations. As the walls go up across our globe, even those refugees fleeing life-threatening situations and their children, are penalized.

The most vulnerable time for an any evil empire is when they believe they are at the zenith of their power. History has proven that all it takes is enough good people to remain steadfast and hold the moral high ground, for the seeds of their destruction is sewn within their own corruption.

Adham Alhajjar, journalist from Gaza Strip.



Adham:

„I was about to turn 32 when I dealt with my first life-changing experience.
I loved to play sports, whether it was basketball, football, swimming, or running. I dreamed of being an international journalist covering the most crucial events in the world to uncover the truth and to serve humanity.

However, it all changed on one morning when I was covering the events of the Great return march in Gaza Strip on 6th April, 2018.

 

I was doing my job and I was really interested in transferring the truth of what happening for the whole world

when an Israeli sniper shot me in my left knee with an exploded bullet. This bullet cost me a lot it damaged my nerves, knee’ bones and the joint in my knee, after I got shot they took me to the hospital where I wait for three days bleeding and waiting for a medical intervention from someone who know what to do to save me.

After three days of the continuing bleeding I have been entered to nerves repairing surgery by a group of doctors supervised by a foreign delegation. Then they told me that I need Knee replacement operation in upcoming months and that it should be done by experts due to the complexity of my case.

I tried my best but I didn’t transferred to be treated outside with financial coverage from the government so I contacted hospitals outside and I got and admission from Hidelberg hospital in Germany to do the surgery of knee replacement.

I covered the expenses of the outpatient consultation but I can’t afford the surgery expenses.
Each day I delay the surgery my knee become worst due to the shortage happen in my nerves and muscles where am losing my chance to walk again.

Before  getting injured I was running from place to another I was helping others but now I can’t even help myself in doing my daily life activities ,
I can’t afford the burden of going to the toilet by myself so, am always in need for help by someone else.“




WWR-Help GAZA Crisis medical aid fund…

Since the start of the Historic Great Return March 30/3/2018… Gaza has experienced an over whelming number of casualties.

Many as a result of having being shot by Israeli IOF snipers using exploding bullets (banned under International Law).
Over 150 unarmed Gazans have been killed outright and thousands have been wounded. Many now suffering life changing and catastrophic injury.

This is the case with Adham Khaled Alhajjar a 32yr Palestinian Journalist.
While covering the story of the Great Return March on the 6-4-2018, Adham was hit in the left leg with an exploding bullet fired by an Israeli sniper.
It is inconceivable that the sniper, could not have know that Adam ,who was clearly identifiable as a member of the press at the time was a journalist.
The exploding bullet tore through his flesh, muscle tendons and bone while critically damaging his knee.

From that day Adhams life has been cruelly changed forever.

Even the most basic tasks are now a huge struggle, he relies on help to get through the day and all movement is extremely painful. Although Gazas limited and overwhelmed health care system has done its best, Adham needs expert treatment.

He can only receive this in modern well equipped specialised hospital. He has been offered treatment and surgery for joint replacement in Germany, Heidelberg. This would dramatically help improve the extreme pain he suffers, his mobility and the future quality of his life.

For this WWR-Help aims to raise funding for Adham medical expenses and travel. WWR-Help is launching this special appeal and asking you to donate what ever you can.

With your help we can bring back some quality to Adhams life and hope.

He still has so much potential, he is still so young.
Please help us to help Adham get the medical treatment he so desperately needs.

DAS QURBANI-FLEISCH FÜR DIE NOTFAMILIEN

 

Hintergrund:

Angesichts der schlechten wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Bedingungen und des Anstiegs der Arbeitslosenquoten im Gaza-Streifen werden Nahrungsmittel unsicher als langfristiges Problem betrachtet, das von den wirtschaftlichen Bedingungen beeinflusst wird. Der Gazastreifen gilt als einer der am meisten überfüllten Orte der Welt, während es keine Ernährungssicherheit gibt. Die Folge sind die Hindernisse, die den im Gazastreifen lebenden Palästinensern auferlegt werden, wie Belagerung, Schließung der Grenzen, Gesundheitskrisen, Brennstoffmangel, Stromkrisen, Unbeweglichkeit für die Bauern, um zu ihren Bauern zu gehen, Lohnkürzungen und die Zunahme von Arbeitslosenquote. Aufgrund der oben genannten Punkte haben die jüngsten Studien erklärt, dass die Situation im Gazastreifen dreimal schwieriger ist als in der Westbank.

Im Gazastreifen verbreitet sich die Unterernährung unter den Menschen, besonders die Kinder unter 5 Jahren über 50% von Gaza Kinder sind unterernährt. „Gaza durch Dürre, Kulturen sind nicht gültig. Der Markt ist voll von Produkten, aber die vorsätzliche israelische Politik, die palästinensische Wirtschaft durch die Einführung der Schließungspolitik zu zerstören, wirkt sich negativ auf Naturkatastrophen aus „, sagte dieser Beter Hanson, der für die UNO autorisierte General.

Die WWR Association betont daher, dass sie mit dem palästinensischen Bürger die Ernährungssicherheit erreichen muss, um dazu beizutragen, dass er eine bessere Lebensbedingung erhält und ihn vor Unterernährung schützt. Jüngsten Studien der Universitäten Jerusalem und Heiketer zufolge zeigt die Studie, dass die Anämie zwischen palästinensischen Kindern unter fünf Jahren 19,7% beträgt.

Die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) erwähnt in ihrem Bericht über diesen Status mit verhülltem Hunger. Mit anderen Berichten für die Ernährungs- und Landwirtschaftsorganisation zur Bewertung der Ernährungssicherheit im Gazastreifen und im Westjordanland heißt es, trotz des Ausströmens der Entwicklungshilfe und humanitären Hilfe von der lokalen und internationalen Organisation in diese beiden Bereiche, sind diese Hilfsmittel geringer als die erwarteten und notwendigen Hilfen besonders für die armen Familien. Wir wollen aus der Rolle des WWR heraus in die palästinensische Gemeinschaft gehen und versuchen das Qurbani Projekt zu implementieren, wo WWR das Fleisch an arme und bedürftige Familien in Gaza Middle Area Camps verteilt, die das am meisten marginalisierte Gebiet im Gazastreifen sind. Mit dem Ziel, den sozialen, wirtschaftlichen und Lebensstatus der armen Haushalte während des Eid al-Adha zu verbessern, indem man ihnen und ihren Kindern das reine, frische Fleisch bietet, das teuer ist und sich nicht leisten kann.

 

Projektziele:

  • Verbesserung der sozialen, wirtschaftlichen und Lebensbedingungen der armen Haushalte während Eid al-Adha, indem man ihnen und ihren Kindern das reine, frische Fleisch bietet, das teuer ist und sich nicht leisten kann.
  • Verringerung der Belastung für die palästinensischen Haushalte, die es sich nicht leisten können, Fleisch für ihre Kinder zu kaufen
  • Lächeln auf den Kindergesichtern zeichnen und das Glück ihren Familien zeigen.

Beschreibung der Zielgruppe

Dieses wichtige Projekt soll bedürftigen und palästinensischen Familien, die an Dystrophie und Anämie leiden, mit Fleisch versorgen. Abhängig von der Datenbank, die der Verband regelmäßig aktualisiert hat.

THE QURBANI MEAT FOR THE NEEDY FAMILIES

 

Background

According to bad economic and social conditions and the increasing of unemployment rates in Gaza Strip, food unsafely is considered a long term problem affected by economic conditions. Gaza strip is considered one of the most crowded places in the world whereas no food security.
Which come as result to the obstacles imposed on the Palestinians living in Gaza Strip Such as siege, closure of the borders, health crises, fuel shortage, electricity crises, immobility for the farmers to go to their farmer, decreasing of wages and the increasing of unemployment rates.
Due to the previous mentioned points the recent studies declared that the situation in Gaza Strip is more difficult by three times than it is in the West Bank.

In Gaza Strip, the malnutrition spreads between people, especially, the children under 5 years old more than 50% of Gaza Children are malnourished.
“Gaza incurrence by drought, crops are not valid. The market is full of products, but the deliberate Israeli policy in demolishing the Palestinian Economy through imposing the closure policy affect negatively as natural disaster“
these word said by Beter Hanson, the general authorized for UN.

So that, WWR Association emphasize on reaching with Palestinian Citizen to the food security in order to contribute providing him a better condition to live and protect him from malnutrition.
According to recent studies made by Jerusalem and Heiketer Universities, The study shows that anemia between Palestinian children under five years is 19.7%

World Health Organization (WHO) mentioned in its report about this status with covered starvation. With other reports for the Agriculture and Food Organization to evaluate the food security in Gaza

Strip and West  Bank said despite flowing of the developmental and humanitarian aids from the local and international organization to these two areas, these aids is less than the expected and necessary  aids especially for the poor families.  Getting out from WWR role towards the Palestinian community we are looking to implement the Qurbani project where WWR distributes the meat to the poor and needy families in Gaza Middle Area Camps which considered the most marginalized area in Gaza Strip. Aiming at enhancing the social, economic and living statuses of the poor households during Eid al-Adha by providing them and their children with the pure, fresh meat which is expensive and cannot afford for it.

 

Project Objectives:

  • Enhancing the social, economic and living statuses of the poor households during Eid al-Adha by providing them and their children with the pure, fresh meat which is expensive and cannot afford for it.
  • Decreasing the burden on the Palestinian households who cannot afford buying meat for their children
  • Drawing Smile on the children faces and Entering the happiness to their families.

Occupied Palestine: Children Hold a Historic Right of Return Demonstration

Geschrieben von:

The Future Belong’s to Palestine: Part Two
See Part (1) here

Written by Ariyana Love, Mike Farah & Wafa Aludaini 

For the first time in the history of humankind, 1000+ children marched for their lives at the Great Return demonstration in Gaza, with one simple cry they desperately need the world to hear:

“Stop killing us please!”

When in history have you heard of children gathering in such numbers, pleading for an end to their ongoing extermination? Is this the point we’ve come to? Can civilization fall any lower? Through organized criminal censorship, Zionists have turned corporate media into accomplices to these Crimes Against Humanity.

Have we completely lost our ability to feel compassion or empathy for the screams of innocent children? At what point did we loose our moral compass? There wasn’t even a peep in the media about the children’s protest! Seriously, does every column inch have to be bought and paid for in Palestinian blood? Who is left standing with the integrity required to give these children a voice?

The same two civil organizations which coordinated the Great Return March, the Higher Committee and Breaking The Siege, also coordinated the massive children’s initiative which was held two km from Erez Crossing in Gaza.

Our most beloved Palestinian cubs bravely roared like Lions on Tuesday, calling on the international community to take action and stop the Israeli massacres of  children and civilians.They are screaming for us to break the 11-year long siege which impacts their most basic daily necessities of life.

Israel is routinely slaughtering these children as part of a wholesale collective punishment of the entire Palestinian population. This medieval siege is being sadistically enforced through the ongoing testing of every conceivable variety of the latest high-tech weapons, made in our 21st Century. Israel cynically uses Gaza as a shop window on which to experiment and sell the most highly developed, banned weapons which are guaranteed to their customers as “battlefield tested.”

This unique selling point brings a much higher profit to the US, UK and Israeli arms industry, giving the Israeli military industrial complex a unique selling point and a reason to protect their lucrative financial interests in this ongoing genocide.

By keeping Gazans confined to the largest open air prison and weapons testing laboratory in the world, Israel is literally making a killing through ongoing siege and civilian massacres. Let’s not forget that the carnage is subsidized by American taxpayers, to the tune of 14 million Dollars per day.

Torturous attrition doesn’t begin to describe the acute and long-term traumatic effects of the crimes committed against these innocent and defenseless children, nearly all of whom have lost one or more and in some cases all of their beloved family.

In a grossly disproportionate response, Israel closed the only entry and exit for supplies to Gaza on May 12th. Limiting Palestinian fishermen to under 3 miles and increasing military strikes, Israel aims to compound the pressure on Gaza civilians and Hamas, to stop exercising their inalienable right to gather in nonviolent protest.

Israel’s criminal Zionist leaders are calling for another ‘Extermination of People,’ (Russell Tribunal on Palestine, 2014) through a full-scale military assault on the besieged strip of land. Israel is accusing Hamas of “forcing” them to have to kill Gaza civilians. The last thing Gaza and their children need is another “war.” They certainly don’t need more traumatic stress. Palestinians have the highest number of children suffering from the most severe PTSD in the world.

Can this seriously be called a war? There is no equal proportionality when one side has the 4th largest military in the world and is an undeclared nuclear power. Compare this to the indigenous Palestinian population which has no army, navy or air force. Are we watching the real life Avatar movie?

The Native Palestinian people only have a democratically elected government and resistance, with a dramatically limited capacity when compared to their occupier. Even though international law gives all Palestinians the legal right bear arms against this military occupation, the protection of these rights are not being enforced. These children desperately need an international protection force and they need their Right of Return, as stated in UN Resolution 194.

“We come here to speak up for our rights and put an End to the Israeli violation of international laws,” said Aya, one of the child participants.

The children were divided into groups and each group shared a story. One of the groups shed light on the intolerable suffering of child medical patients and the lack of medicine due to the criminal siege. Other groups focused on the prolonged electrical outages and the undrinkable water, 97% of which is polluted and slowly poisons them.

“I was born in 2007. I never experienced 24 hours of electricity or uncontaminated water,” 12-year-old Amera stated.

Since the siege began in 2007, Gaza children Amera’s age have already endured 3 horrific, full-scale military assaults on the strip.

“Day by day we prove that our Great Return March is a popular and peaceful protest,” one of the organizers, Mohammed Thrayya confirmed.

Since the beginning of the Great Return demonstrations, 18 children were deliberately shot and murdered by illegal Occupation snipers. By the IOF’s own admission, these children were precisely targeted with internationally banned explosive bullets and murdered.

With no mercy in sight from Israel, Gaza children continue to pay the price for Zionist greed. As the global community’s awareness grows, the  children of Gaza cling to the hope that the international community will  step up and take direct action to protect them.

WWR-help.com has recently appointed a team manager in Gaza who provided this exclusive footage shot from the children’s march.

WWR is a registered charity that remains steadfast in their commitment to provide clean drinking water, bread ovens and general food assistance to the poorest families in Gaza.

If you would like to help or get involved, WWR aims to widen their capacity to also provide medical assistance for Gaza hospitals. Visit their website here.

Two resolutions on the escalation of violence at the Gaza-Israel border have failed at the UN Security Council. Since March, Israeli soldiers have shot dead at least 121 Palestinians who have been protesting for the right to return to their homeland. The US vetoed a Kuwait-backed resolution calling for the protection of Palestinians. The US then failed to muster a single vote of support for its resolution condemning Hamas.

‘The Future Belong’s to Palestine’ – Homage to the Great Return March as it Continues

Geschrieben von:

By Mike Farah and Ariyana Love

More people were injured by Israeli violence in 7 weeks of the Great Return March protest in Gaza, then during the entire 51 days of what the Russell Tribunal on Palestine ruled an ‘Extermination of People,’ in 2014.

According to Pierre Krahenbuhl, the Commissioner General of UNWRA, 12,000 people were wounded during the 2014 slaughter, perpetrated by Israel upon Gaza, which they ironically coined “Protective Edge.” However, a staggering 13,500 people were injured including approximately 3,500 by live ammunition during the Great Return March.

Times of Islamabad has reported that 187 Palestinians including 31 children have been killed by Israel to date. The UN have not updated their casualty figures since May 22nd. 

No amount of words will assuage the excruciating agony and grief so nobly laid before the alter of human sacrifice in Gaza, which demonstrates the ongoing 70-year catastrophe of the Palestinian Al-Nakba.

Never before has the price for column inches in the mainstream media been so dearly paid in the precious blood of unarmed, non-violent people, screaming for their most basic right to life, freedom and self-determination, in the face of a criminal occupation that has enforced an 11-year medieval siege on Gaza, leaving it unsustainable for the two-million inhabitants.



Razan Al-Najar, a 21-year-old volunteer paramedic, was murdered by Israeli snipers as she ran toward the separation barrier with her hands in the air, 
in a bid to administer first aid to a wounded civilian.

It was stated in a UN report in 2012 that Gaza would be unlivable by 2020. However, in 2017 Robert Piper, UN Coordinator for Humanitarian Aid and Development said “that unlivable threshold has been passed a long time ago.”

At present, 97% of Gaza’s water is undrinkable and it’s population is being slowly poisoned and starved. The Trump Administration’s $65 million cut in USAid to UNWRA this year, has compounded the misery of up to 80% of Gazans who relied on UNWRA food aid to survive, as well as UNWRA education and medical care.

As a result of these cuts, many Gazans are now going days without food, according to our sources at the ICSPR and Ministry of Health in Gaza. The flood of casualties from the Great Return March has been catastrophic for what remained of Gaza’s already crumbling health infrastructure. Even the best equipped medical units in Europe would not be able to cope with the huge numbers of casualties and complexities of the life-changing injuries caused by Israel’s illegal use of banned weapons. Exploding lead bullets called “The Butterfly” are being used to permanently maim the civilian protesters. An extraordinary number of limbs have been amputated.

Israel is also testing chemical weapons that were fired as “tear gas” from Israeli drones. The symptoms have never been seen before by Gaza’s medical personnel.

Former British PM, David Cameron and Noam Chomsky have both called Gaza an “open air prison.” In actuality, Gazans might be better off in prison, where bombs aren’t dropping on their heads, electricity is available, they get three square meals a day, clean water, access to medical treatment and a guaranteed release date.

It must be mentioned that Israel profits by keeping Gaza on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe and under siege, in multiple ways, as explained in a +972 article.

In light of this context, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner’s speech at the opening ceremony of the US Embassy in Jerusalem on May 14th, is an Orwellian distortion of truth that could only be surpassed by the late Joseph Geobbels, if he were describing the inmates of the Warsaw Ghetto during their uprising in Nazi occupied Poland.

While unarmed, non-violent Gazans protesting their inhuman living conditions, were being murdered and maimed, Kushner callously referred to the Great Return March by saying, “As we have seen from the protests in the last month and even today, those provoking violence were part of the problem, not part of the solution.”

Seriously Mr. Kushner, who is provoking violence and what do you see as a final solution?

Who is the terrorist? 

187 Palestinians murdered — Zero Israeli’s killed.

13,500 Palestinians wounded — Zero Israeli’s wounded.

What Palestine’s Great Return March has exposed is Israel’s Achilles heal and it’s most feared nightmare, NON-VIOLENCE! The dilemma now facing the most sadistic, weaponized society on Earth, whose very survival is dependent on just two tools in their toolbox; deception and brute military force, is how do they deal with coordinated, unarmed resistance?

Israel owning 96% of the mainstream media, through 6 corporations, has a massive industrialized PR machine which distorts, censors and controls the narrative, always blaming their victims.

Despite this, the powerful images of Israel’s murderous war crimes against journalists, medics,disabled, women, elderly, and children, still managed to break through the traditional wall of media silence and complicity, flying in the face of their fake narrative.

The potency of the graphic video images of Israeli snipers administering kill shots to the heads and chest of children and of protesters being shot in the back and while praying, to the maiming of thousands with internationally banned explosive lead bullets, which tore through organ and bone, has resonated far beyond the die hard activists, spawning a great awakening of millions who were previously unaware.

Israel’s usual propaganda tricks have been rendered impotent due to Palestine’s diligent reporting and live streaming on social media, which cannot be refuted. Israel’s efforts to dehumanize the civilians they murder by labeling the dead and maimed as “Hamas terrorists,” can be seen for the ridiculous lie that it is. So successful are the raw images reported by Palestinians and activists, that Israel has proposed another draconian law to criminalize documentation of Israeli occupation “soldiers” human rights violations in the occupied territories.

Palestine’s people power

In truth, the Great Return March, which started on the 30th of March, is a grass roots initiative based on one man’s vision of birds flying over Gaza’s barrier fence, towards his stolen ancestral land. Which begged the question, “if birds decide to fly, so they fly. Is it not the right of people to move freely like birds as they wish?”

Who could of guessed the vision of Ahmad Abu Artema, a 33-year-old Palestinian writer and activist, would mobilize millions with a simple idea. From the seeds of this vision, the “National Committee of the Great March of Return” was born and supported by every sector of Palestinian civil and political society throughout Gaza, West Bank, globally and even in Israel itself.

What we are witnessing here is a genuine expression of ‘people power’ in one of the largest and most exemplary demonstrations of non-violent resistance the world has ever seen. We’ve often heard the call, where is the Palestinian Ghandi? What the world is witnessing in this historic march for freedom, is the essence of a population without an army, air force or navy, that has the spirit of 12 million Ghandi’s.

Even the elected Hamas government was inspired by the people’s initiative. Hamas Chief, Ismail Haniya is seen below, giving a speech at Gaza’s eastern separation barrier, in support of the non-violent demonstrations and the right of return for all Palestinians.

Despite Israel’s and the mainstream media’s efforts to demonize Hamas and dehumanize all legitimate resistance, Hamas proved to the world their willingness to react non-violently to Israeli aggression.

Showing remarkable discipline, Hamas purposefully did not return fire when Palestinian civilians were being maimed and murdered. This was illustrated in video footage Hamas released, showing they had Israeli snipers in their scopes multiple times, including an high-ranking officer who was within range and on target, named Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.

In fact, Hamas demonstrated to the occupation a powerful lesson in non-violent restraint. Something mainstream media will never dare to report!

It’s well documented that when it comes to ceasefires, Israel is almost always first to violatethem. War crimes are not self-defense!

The EU proposed to remove Hamas from the EU Terror List in 2014.

Palestine’s right to exist

So often we are told that Palestine deny’s Israel’s right to exist. When in truth, the PLO  recognized Israel’s right to exist in the 1993 agreements, brokered by President Clinton.

Even Hamas accepted the 1967 boarders, should Palestine be awarded it’s own state. But Israeli rejected that, according to top Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, who also confirmed Hamas’s recognition of the 1967 boarders with former President Jimmy Carter.

It’s time for Israel to recognize Palestine’s right to exist! 

At present, Palestinians are not even acknowledged as human beings. Just look at some of the most recent comments by Israeli Occupation leaders.

On April 8th, ‘Defence’ Minister Abigdor Leibermanclearly illustrated their institutionalized contempt for Palestinian life by declaring, “there are no innocent people in Gaza.”

On the day of the May 14th massacre, as the death toll was still rising, Avi Dichter, Chair of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and ‘Defence’ confirmed Israel’s position by stating, “the IDF has enough bullets for everyone.”

In fact, the Israel admitted themselves, through an IDF Tweet, that they “know where every bullet landed.” Realizing their admission, they quickly deleted the tweet.

This disturbing dehumanization is endemic within the psyche of Israeli society, from cradle to grave, as illustrated in Nurit Peled-Elhanan’s book titled, Palestine in Israeli School Books: Ideology and Propaganda in Education. Nurit is an Israeli Professor of Language and Education at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

What is even more unnerving is that this Zionist ideology is now being openly parroted as government policy in Washington, like never before under the present Trump Administration. On April 10th, when an Al Quds reporter asked if there are any civilians in Gaza, the US State Department refused to give a definitive answer, they simply would not acknowledge the existence of civilians in Gaza.

Israel’s “Systematic Murder” and weapons testing on Gazans, which continues to play out in front of the world, has drawn global recognition. Gazans noble and agonizing  sacrifice for freedom, has brought the Palestinian people’s inalienable right of return enshrined in UN Resolution 194, right back into center stage, preempting Trump’s “deal of the century”:

The United Nations General Assembly adopts resolution 194 (III), resolving that “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.”

Now it’s time to realize Palestine’s right of return! 

International response to the carnage

Throughout the history of humanity, every struggle for social justice has seen it’s turning point. America had it’s My Lai Massacre in Vietnam, South Africa had it’s Sharpsville Massacre and Ireland had it’s Bloody Sunday inflicted by the British. We are witnessing a moment in history, when the tide of global opinion ultimately swings against Israel.

The first tectonic shift occurred in 2014, during and in the aftermath of the last ‘Extermination of People’ in Gaza. Now the world is once again horrified by Israel’s sadistic behavior on the killing fields during the Great Return March.

Shock waves are resonating across the globe and echoing through the corridors of power. South Africa is diminishing it’s diplomatic ties with Israel. Turkey’s President Erdogan accused Israel of carrying out “genocide” and announced he would withdraw Turkey’s Ambassadors from Israel and the US.

Kuwait and Turkey rallied the Middle East and the world to unite in an unprecedented initiative led by Erdogan, calling for an international protection force for Palestine. In isolation, America has vetoed that noble initiative.

Recently, the US and Israel lost two major votes at the UN:

1. The first was a humiliating defeat for the Trump Administration and it’s declaration of Jerusalem as the “capital of Israel,” which the UN vote determined was null and void. In defiance, Zionists moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem anyway on May 14th, in breech of international law.

2. A second resolution called for an investigation into Israeli war crimes in Gaza during the Great Return march. This was supported overwhelmingly by 29 countries. Only the US and Australia voted against it, with 14 countries abstaining, including Britain and Germany.

UN High Commissioner, Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad, said about the brutal siege of Gaza:

“they are in essence caged in a toxic slum from birth to death; deprived of dignity; dehumanized by Israeli authorities to such a point it appears officials do not even consider that these men and women have a right, as well as every reason to protest.”

Prince Zaid said that “under international law, Israel was obligated to protect the population of Gaza and ensure their welfare, but there is little evidence of any attempt to minimize casualties.”

Prince Zaid also said, “the stark contrast in casualties on both sides is suggestive of a wholly disproportionate response. Killings resulting from the unlawful use of force by an occupying power may also constitute ‘willful killings’ – a grave breech of the Fourth Geneva Convention” he told the United Nations Council.

The US and the British Conservative Party were arguing that Israel should once again be allowed to investigate itself after it’s depraved use of live fire against unarmedprotesters. We need look no further than the 2014 massacre in Gaza as a prime example of what happens when Israel is allowed to be judge and jury. They found no wrong doing in their extermination of whole family’s and their use of a plethora of internationally banned weapons, such as white phosphorous, DIMEand more.

The UK’s leading opposition Labour party declared Britain’s abstention at the UN, “disgusting.” The Shadow Foreign Secretary, Emily Thornberry, slammed PM Teresa May’s weakened conservative party, demanding those responsible for the carnage be held to account, with an independent and impartial investigation.

This is remarkable considering the ongoing pernicious campaign by the UK Zionist lobby to brand the Labour party as “anti-Semitic,” in their attempt to silence any criticism of Israel.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour party leader has been a life-long supporter of Palestinian rights. In response to the lethal force used on the 9th of April in Gaza, he called for a full review of UK’s arms sales to Israel. In a statement Corbyn posted for a demonstration in the UK against the atrocities, he said “the killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage. Firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and cannot be tolerated.”

Corbyn made a manifesto commitment during the last election, to recognize the state of Palestine if he is elected PM. This is the first time a leader of the opposition in Britain has taken a stand such as this for Palestine. It also explains the sustained attacks by the Zionist Lobby.

In Ireland, Jino Kenney of the Irish political party, Solidarity–People Before Profit, referred to Israel as “murdering bastards” at the Parliament.

Amnesty International called for a complete Arms Embargo against Israel on April 27th.

The Arab League called for a criminal investigation and the ICC will investigate a Systematic Murder complaint over the Gaza killings.

Regardless of international consensus, the Israeli “Supreme Court” passed a ruling on May 24th, giving Israel the green light to continue using live-fire against unarmed Gazans. This ruling was passed just after the May 14th massacre, when ‘IDF’ snipers murdered 63 civilians on a single day, 7 of which were children, who were administered kill shots to their heads and chests.

When is the US going to stop using it’s VETO to sanction genocide? The Palestinian people have deserved an impartial peace broker and an international protection force a long time ago.

Let us remind the world in the context of international law, that Israel was permitted to join the global community at the United Nations based on the following preconditions, which have never been ratified.

The three conditions Israel SIGNED and AGREED to are:

1. The status of Jerusalem would not be altered.
2. The Palestinians would be permitted to return.
3. The partition agreement would become the final boarders.

Israel was accepted into the UN on condition that it was to accept the Right of Return of Palestinian refugees. Admission of Israel to membership in the UN (General Assembly Resolution 273, of May 11th 1949) requires Israel to comply with General Assembly Resolution 194 of December 11th, 1948 and Israel stated it agreed to comply with this resolution.

Israel has never upheld any of their agreements, to date.

The Great Return March continues…

Something unique is occurring among the make-shift tents and stages of this great nation’s gathering. The people’s rising has sparked a cultural renaissance which is revitalizing Palestine’s ancient spirit and resolve.

What the Palestinian people have achieved with their Great Return March, is an empowerment of ordinary civilians to determine their own destiny. It is the Palestinian people who possess the moral high ground and it is their faith that defines the future.

The US and Israel are now scrambling to impose Donald Trump’s so called “deal of the century.”The Zionists aim to grind the occupied people down into the dirt so they will accept anything they are offered, which is always bread crumbs, or a chance to redecorate their prison cell.

Any deal that ignores the voices and aspirations of the oppressed people is doomed, “null and void,” just like Donald Trump’s impetuous US Embassy move to Jerusalem.

The National Committee of the Great March of Return has called for an international boycott of all countries that move their embassy to Jerusalem in defiance of international law. The protests will continue. Every Friday Palestinians will gather at the illegal separation barrier in Gaza, until they are free.

The National Committee has planned for the largest mass protest in Gaza (as well as in the West Bank) on June 5th and June 8th, to end the illegal blockade and occupation of Palestine. They have issued an urgent call for the entire world and activists, to mobilize in solidarity:

“we need you to scream out against injustice and double standards and urge your governments to carry out their moral and legal duties to protect the civilians of Palestine.”

Israel can no longer deny the Palestinian people a one state solution, with equal rights for all, while making the two-state solution impossible.

What the Zionist occupiers may have hoped for, has literally failed. PM, Ben Gurion’s infamous statement, “the old will die and the young will forget,” is the delusional, colonialist fallacy that will lead to their own demise.

There are still Palestinian elders living in the refugee camps in Gaza who are older than the 1948 Israeli Occupation. These elders can literally see their ancestral homes from within their open-air prison. The majority of Gazans who are attending the Great Return March and those being murdered and maimed on the killing fields, are third generation refugees. Essentially, the old have not died and the young will never forget.

The question is, will they forgive?

When truth speaks to power, history reveals that struggles for freedom are not won by those with the most powerful army, but by the hearts and minds of the people.

Be there no doubt that the future and quality of life for all humanity is dependent on justice for the Palestinian people and their inalienable Right of Return.

THIS IS THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE DOOR TO GLOBAL PEACE.

Editors note:

In 1919, the Palestinian people were provisionally recognized as a State by the League of Nations, as indicated in the 1922 Mandate for Palestine addressed to Great Britain. The UN’s 1947 partition plan (UN Gen. Ass. Res. 181(II)) would have created a Palestinian State, except that Zionist paramilitaries sabotaged it.
