Palestinian children are detained in Israeli prisons

He went out to play with his friends and was abducted by strangers who beat him and later he was forced to sign a confession. He was then sent to an adult prison. Mohammad (14 years old at the time) was playing with friends on a hill near his village (Biddu, near Ramallah) on 4 February 2008 when he was suddenly apprehended by four men dressed in civilian clothes. The men grabbed Mohammad knocking him to the ground; they struck him several times on the head with a gun whilst his face was sprayed with tear gas. The men then blindfolded him and tied his hands and feet with plastic cuffs before throwing him into the back of a vehicle. Mohammad was interrogated in the absence of a lawyer, deceived into signing a confession to throwing stones, and imprisoned in Israel for four-and-a-half months.

    ETHNIC CLEANSING: ISRAEL
    Since 2001, Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman, proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
    Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

    ETHNIC CLEANSING: GERMANY
    While Judenfrei referred merely to “freeing” an area of all of its Jewish citizens, the term Judenrein (literally “clean of Jews”) was also used. This had the stronger connotation that any trace of Jewish blood had been removed as an impurity.’ Gelnhausen, Germany, was reported Judenfrei on November 1, 1938 by propaganda newspaper Kinzigwacht after its synagogue was closed and remaining local Jews forced to leave the town.

    ETHNIC CLEANSING: far-right in Israel – Geert Wilders in Holland

    How can he call his party ‘The Freedom Party’ and have as his policy, the restriction of freedom of movement?
    Freedom of fascism?

    Geert Wilders to spread his anti-Muslim movement west
    Dutch far-right politician forms international alliance to attempt to ban immigration from Islamic countries

    AP in The Hague
    The Guardian, Friday 16 July 2010

    An anti-Muslim populist in the Netherlands is forming an international alliance to spread his message across the west in an attempt to ban immigration from Islamic countries, among other goals.

    Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom party, told the Associated Press that he would launch the movement late this year, initially in five countries: the US, Canada, Britain, France and Germany.

    “The message, ‘stop Islam, defend freedom’, is a message that’s not only important for the Netherlands but for the whole free Western world,” Wilders said at the Dutch parliament.

    Among the group’s aims will be outlawing immigration from Islamic countries to the west and a ban on Islamic sharia law. Starting as a grassroots movement, he hopes it eventually will produce its own lawmakers or influence other legislators.

    Ayhan Tonca, a prominent spokesman for Dutch Muslims, said he feared Wilders message would fall on fertile ground in much of Europe, where anti-Islam sentiment has been swelling for years.

    “So long as things are going badly with the economy, a lot of people always need a scapegoat,” Tonca said. “At the moment, that is the Muslims in western Europe.”

    Tonca called on “well-meaning people in Europe to oppose this.”

    Known for his bleached-blond mop of hair, Wilders is a shrewd politician who has won awards in the Netherlands for his debating skills and regularly stands up for gay and women’s rights.

    But he rose to local and then international prominence with his firebrand anti-Islam rhetoric that has led to him being charged under Dutch anti-hate speech laws and banned from visiting Britain until a court there ordered that he be allowed into the country.

    Wilders said he hopes to position the alliance between traditional conservative parties and far-right wing groups, saying that in Britain there is “an enormous gap” between the ruling Conservative party and the far-right BNP: “The BNP is a party that, whatever you think of it, it’s not my party I think it’s a racist party,” he said.

    Wilders, who calls Islam a “fascist” religion, has won increasing support the Netherlands in recent years even while he has been subjected to round-the-clock protection because of death threats.

    His Freedom party won the biggest gains in a national election last month, coming third with 24 seats in the 150-seat parliament, up from the nine before the election.

    However, mainstream parties will not form a coalition with Wilders, leaving him on the margins of Dutch politics for the next parliamentary term.

    Wilders is due to stand trial in October on hate speech charges stemming from his short internet film Fitna, which denounced the Qur’an as a a fascist book that inspires terrorism. The film aroused anti-Dutch protests around the Muslim world, and he was banned for several months from entering Britain.

    But he is unrepentant and said he now wants to take his message outside the Netherlands.

    “The fight for freedom and (against) Islamisation as I see it is a worldwide phenomenon and problem to be solved,” he said.

    Wilders declined to name any of the other founders of the organisation he is calling the Geert Wilders International Freedom Alliance. He has been criticised for running his party as a one-man show.

    Geert Wilders on Israel

    “The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.”

    The next video says us why Netanyahu has a far-right-leader and racist as Avigdor Lieberman in his government…

    ‘This Is the Real Netanyahu’

    Bibi:…The Arabs are currently focusing on a war of terror and they think it will break us. The main thing, first of all, is to hit them. Not just one blow, but blows that are so painful that the price will be too heavy to be borne. The price is not too heavy to be borne, now. A broad attack on the Palestinian Authority. To bring them to the point of being afraid that everything is collapsing…

    Woman: Wait a moment, but then the world will say “how come you’re conquering again?”

    Netanyahu: the world won’t say a thing. The world will say we’re defending.

    Woman: Aren’t you afraid of the world, Bibi?

    Netanyahu: Especially today, with America. I know what America is. America is something that can easily be moved. Moved to the right direction.

    Child: They say they’re for us, but, it’s like…

    Netanyahu: They won’t get in our way. They won’t get in our way.

    Child: On the other hand, if we do some something, then they…

    Netanyahu: So let’s say they say something. So they said it! They said it! 80% of the Americans support us. It’s absurd. We have that kind of support and we say “what will we do with the…” Look. That administration [Clinton] was extremely pro-Palestinian. I wasn’t afraid to maneuver there. I was not afraid to clash with Clinton. I was not afraid to clash with the United Nations. I was paying the price anyway, I preferred to receive the value. Value for the price.

    In the following segment, Bibi boasts about how he emptied the Oslo Accords of meaning by an interpretation that made a mockery of them:

    Woman: The Oslo Accords are a disaster.

    Netanyahu: Yes. You know that and I knew that…The people [nation] has to know…

    What were the Oslo Accords? The Oslo Accords, which the Knesset signed, I was asked, before the elections: “Will you act according to them?” and I answered: “yes, subject to mutuality and limiting the retreats.” “But how do you intend to limit the retreats?” “I’ll give such interpretation to the Accords that will make it possible for me to stop this galloping to the ’67 [armistice] lines. How did we do it?

    Narrator: The Oslo Accords stated at the time that Israel would gradually hand over territories to the Palestinians in three different pulses, unless the territories in question had settlements or military sites. This is where Netanyahu found a loophole.

    Netanyahu: No one said what defined military sites. Defined military sites, I said, were security zones. As far as I’m concerned, the Jordan Valley is a defined military site.

    Woman: Right [laughs]…The Beit She’an Valley.

    Netanyahu: How can you tell. How can you tell? But then the question came up of just who would define what Defined Military Sites were. I received a letter — to me and to Arafat, at the same time — which said that Israel, and only Israel, would be the one to define what those are, the location of those military sites and their size. Now, they did not want to give me that letter, so I did not give the Hebron Agreement. I stopped the government meeting, I said: “I’m not signing.” Only when the letter came, in the course of the meeting, to me and to Arafat, only then did I sign the Hebron Agreement. Or rather, ratify it, it had already been signed. Why does this matter? Because at that moment I actually stopped the Oslo Accord.

    Woman: And despite that, one of our own people, excuse me, who knew it was a swindle, and that we were going to commit suicide with the Oslo Accord, gives them — for example — Hebron…

    Netanyahu: Indeed, Hebron hurts. It hurts. It’s the thing that hurts. One of the famous rabbis, whom I very much respect, a rabbi of Eretz Yisrael, he said to me: “What would your father say?” I went to my father. Do you know a little about my father’s position?

    …He’s not exactly a lily-white dove, as they say. So my father heard the question and said: “Tell the rabbi that your grandfather, Rabbi Natan Milikowski, was a smart Jew. Tell him it would be better to give two percent than to give a hundred percent. And that’s the choice here. You gave two percent and in that way you stopped the withdrawal. Instead of a hundred percent.” The trick is not to be there and be broken. The trick is to be there and pay a minimal price.”

    At a point in the middle of the video Netanayhu asks the camera man to stop taping, but he continues…
    Netanyahu says what he really thinks for the first time:
    He brags about how easy is to manipulate the USA and he proudly explains how he sabotaged the Oslo process

    My comment on http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121534747892218 :
    These is a very good initiative.
    Nobody can say that the Palestinian children who are the victims of the Israeli-American governments and organisations as AIPAC (America’s Pro-Israel lobby), are ‘terrorists’.
    Nobody can say that these children have to be discriminated or killed for reason of ‘self-defense’.

    Gaza children set world record for basketball

    Gaza TV News Children in the Gaza Strip have earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Seven thousand five hundred kids all bounced basketballs at the same time for five minutes.

    The world record was shattered at Gaza’s old international airport, which has been bombed several times by Israeli forces since 2001.

    The event, organised by the UN and recent Palestinian college graduates, was designed to bring hope and fun to children in the besieged coastal enclave.

    ‎7/24/10 – Two dead and four children injured in Israeli nail bomb attack in Beit Hanoun, Gaza

    “She came in through and it wasn’t clear she was injured. Suddenly a lot of blood came from her nose and she vomited. All of the family saw this – her little brothers were very scared. She had just been playing in the front of the house.”

    This is a mother describing to us her daughter, 9-year-old Sammah as she came in to her home at 4pm after the Israeli army reportedly shelled and fired four bombs into and around a residential area in Beit Hanoun, Northern Gaza. She is now in a semi-critical condition in hospital, suffering extensive blood loss and very low haemoglobin. She was hit by shrapnel and ‘flechettes’ from a nail bomb that landed 100m away, causing internal bleeding to the chest, severe head trauma and nails embedded in her body. Shells containing flechettes are illegal under international law if fired into densely populated civilian areas and SamahEid El-Massry is one of four children injured in the attack yesterday, July 21st.
