Mr. President of the General Assembly,
Your Excellency Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,
Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Palestine comes today to the United Nations General Assembly at a time when it is still tending to its wounds and still burying its beloved martyrs of children, women and men who have fallen victim to the latest Israeli aggression, still searching for remnants of life amid the ruins of homes destroyed by Israeli bombs on the Gaza Strip, wiping out entire families, their men, women and children murdered along with their dreams, their hopes, their future and their longing to live an ordinary life and to live in freedom and peace.

Palestine comes today to the General Assembly because it believes in peace and because its people, as proven in past days, are in desperate need of it.

Palestine comes today to…

Silver Lining

by Philip Giraldi, source

There has been considerable debate over who “won” the recent fighting in and around Gaza, though the question itself might lack relevancy as both sides have largely returned to the status quo ante. Hamas has indeed proven itself capable of resisting Israel and has gained the respect of its Arab neighbors while its political opponent Fatah has again looked weak and vacillating. That many of the frequently homemade Gazan rockets were able to penetrate Israeli defenses and even strike near Tel Aviv is also being promoted by some as a game changer, but in reality the actual impact was more psychological than lethal. Israel blinked because it had become clear that there were no real military targets remaining in Gaza and only civilians, many of them children, were being killed. Continuing the air assault or initiating a ground invasion would only lead to a major public…

GAZA, (PIC)– The Israeli naval forces detained on Thursday two Palestinian fishermen off the coast of the Gaza Strip and seized their boat.

Nizar Ayyash, head of the Gaza fishermen’s syndicate, said in a press statement that an Israeli naval ship intercepted on Thursday at noon, a Palestinian fishing boat carrying two brothers, Salim and Hassan al-Nu’man, then arrested them and took their boat to the port of Ashdod, north of the Gaza Strip.

On Wednesday, Israeli occupation naval forces opened fire on a Palestinian fishing boat in the Gaza Sea, then detained the six fishermen on board.

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Secretary-general of the Palestinian popular committees against the wall and settlements, Azmi al-Shyoukhi, stated that the daily confrontations between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youths in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem are the beginnings of a real outbreak of a third intifada.

Al-Shyoukhi told Quds Press on Monday that “the daily confrontations taking place in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem constitute the beginnings of a real third intifada in response to the war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip”.

Al-Shyoukhi considered that the Palestinian movement in the West Bank “will turn to a massive popular uprising in light of the continued Israeli aggression on Gaza,” calling for escalating the popular resistance in all occupied territories in support of the besieged Gaza Strip that witnesses a continuous Israeli military aggression which started six days ago.

A new wave of hatred towards Palestine is sweeping through Israel from public figures to the man on the street. This hostility is in sharp contrast to efforts in Cairo, where Arab leaders and Western diplomats are trying to hammer out a peace plan.

While Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) official Nabil Sheath expressed hope Sunday night that negotiations would continue, very different noises were coming out of Israel.

Interior Minister Eli Yishai said Operation Pillar of Defense would continue and likely be expanded, a reference to the possibility that a ground offensive has already been given the go-ahead.

The war in Gaza “must be so painful and difficult that the terror groups will not think twice but a hundred times before they fire missiles against Israel again,” it was reported in The Israel National News.

“Destroy and damage infrastructure, public buildings and government buildings. We must make sure that Hamas…

PRESSTV | NOV 20, 2012

 

The UK government has launched systematic attempts in recent days simultaneous with the Israeli regime’s indiscriminate killing of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip in a bid to put the blame on resistance forces inside the besieged enclave.

Foreign Secretary William Hague said in a recent comment that Hamas, the Palestinian resistance movement, was to blame for and totally responsible for Israel’s bombardment of the Gaza Strip. He claimed that massive airstrikes were in response to rockets fired into the Israeli occupied territories.

Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt visited the southern town of Kiryat Malachi where three Israelis were killed after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit a building.

Commenting on his visit to Kiryat Malachi, Burt tried to distort facts by saying that he is gravely concerned about the “terrible toll and suffering the conflict is inflicting on families and communities…

The smoke of defeat and retreat emerged Tuesday from “Israel’s” security meeting.

According to “Israeli” media, the forum of top nine ministers has decided that the Zionist entity will attempt to reach a lull.

“A decision was taken that for the time being there is a temporary hold on the ground incursion to give diplomacy a chance to succeed,” an “Israeli” official announced following a late-night session of “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s inner circle.

In this brilliant speech, former New York Times Mideast Bureau Chief Chris Hedges said, “The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction” on Gaza was aimed at “creating squalid, lawless, and impoverished ghettos in the West Bank and Gaza where life for Palestinians will be barely sustainable.”

The goal is ethnic cleansing, plain and simple.

A group of right-wing Israeli settlers tried to set fire to a Palestinian home near Bethlehem Sunday night, and spraypainted racist graffiti on the home and nearby structures.


‘Kill all Arabs’ graffiti (IMEMC archive photo)

The graffiti included ‘Death to Arabs’, which has become a rallying cry in recent years for the right-wing settler movement, whose state objective is to rid the West Bank of its indigenous Palestinian inhabitants and take over their land to annex it to Israel.

The incident took place at around 2:30 am, Monday morning, in the village of al-Manshiya southeast of Bethlehem.

According to reports from local sources, the settlers poured gasoline on the home of Younis Abu Dayyeh in the village, and spraypainted racist slogans, then tried to light the gasoline on fire. They were chased out by the villagers before they managed…

GAZA, (PIC)– The government of Ismail Haneyya has called on the Arab countries to adopt serious and important stands vis-à-vis the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

The government said in a letter to Arab countries on Tuesday that Arab information ministers should assume their role in defending the Palestinian people and adopting serious stands toward the Israeli aggression.

It said that the Israeli occupation had crossed all red lines in its aggression on the Palestinian people for decades before the very eyes of the world community without any deterrence.

It said that the Israeli artillery shelling of civilians extending condolences to a family east of Gaza city on Saturday was a crime against humanity and a serious breach of the international humanitarian law.

The government said that the Israeli attempt to “export its internal crisis” and exploit “Palestinian blood for election…
