Shooting an arab is like shooting a prairie dog for Jews. They did it in 1918 Russia, and they will do it in America some day.

Why would they do that in America? Is somebody planning a revolt or something?

Almost half of Sderot’s preteens suffer from signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) according to a study that was published this November in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Based on a questionnaire answered by 154 seventh and eighth grade students, it was found that 43.5% of the children demonstrated clinical signs of PTSD.

Here's how Jews shield themselves from the thousands of rockets that come from Gaza everyday:

Sounds like they're building up to demanding more aid. Someone's gotta pay for their therapy.

Here's how Jews shield themselves from the thousands of rockets that come from Gaza everyday:

So now Israelis have invented PTSD without actual trauma, just as they've created bogus rocket injury statistics by counting "shock" (not by the medical definition).

The soft-spoken teenager told Tazpit News Agency, that the rocket attack was “scary” and had left her in shock. “I went into our family’s bomb shelter as soon as the Code Red siren went off,” she said. “And then as I was standing there, I heard the shriek of the rocket as it flew over our house, followed by a deafening explosion. I thought the rocket had fallen on our home.”

The rocket, which slammed into the roof of Odaya’s neighbors’ house, sent pieces of shrapnel and glass everywhere, reaching also Odaya’s home. The neighboring family was away at the time of the attack, but for Odaya, the experience was scarring.

Israel forces wound 2 Palestinians

Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:22PM GMT
source: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/14/288982/israel-forces-wound-2-palestinians/

Israeli forces have shot and wounded two Palestinians near Gaza’s border with the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

The incident happened on Thursday near an Israeli fence east of the town of Beit Hanun, AFP reported.

Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesman for Gaza's Health Ministry, said one of the victims was in grave condition after he was shot in the chest, while the other was in moderate condition.

A spokesman for the Israeli Army claimed that several Palestinians had damaged the Israeli fence in the northern Gaza Strip.

Thursday’s shooting brings to 53 the total number of Palestinians injured since a November 2012 truce.

The November ceasefire came into effect following an eight-day-long Israeli offensive that killed more than 170 Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Under the truce agreement, Israel is required to allow Palestinians to enter what it had previously declared as a 300-meter-deep no-go zone on the Gaza side of the border.

Farmers have been allowed to move up to 100 meters from the border, but Israeli troops open fire at the Palestinians they claim have gone further than that.

Israel confirms it held ‘Mossad agent’ known as Prisoner X

Thu Feb 14, 2013 6:49AM GMT

The Israeli regime confesses that it had secretly imprisoned a reportedly Australian ‘Mossad agent’ who was later found hanged in solitary confinement nearly two years ago.

The Tel Aviv regime was forced to admit on Wednesday that the man, known as ‘Prisoner X,’ had been jailed under a false identity “for security reasons” after Australian media disclosed the secret despite Israel’s great efforts to cover it up.

On February 12, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported that Ben Zygier was “found hanged in a cell with state-of-the-art surveillance systems” near Tel Aviv in late 2010.

Originally born in Melbourne, the 34-year-old man with a dual Australian-Israeli citizenship had worked for the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, the ABC reported.

The Israeli justice ministry said, “Following an extensive investigation it was ruled six weeks ago that it was suicide. The prisoner was held in jail under a warrant issued by a court.”

Other details of the case, however, remained under a gag order.

According to the ABC, the detainee “received no visitors and lived hermetically sealed from the outside world” while he was jailed.

Other reports also indicated that even his prison guards did not know his identity.

While the Israeli regime has not exposed the charges against the Prisoner X, the newspaper Australian suggested that he had been detained for treason.

“Why was he interned? The suspicion is because of treason against Israel,” the newspaper cited Israeli Army Radio.

Greg Sheridan, the newspaper’s foreign editor, also said, “If a former Mossad agent has ended up in an Israeli prison, this can only indicate that something has gone terribly wrong.”

Earlier in the day, Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr also confessed that the government knew an Australian had been detained by the Israeli regime in 2010 for security offences.

However, Carr’s recent revelation comes after an earlier statement that he only became aware of the man’s incarceration after his death.

Israeli troops attack Palestinian protesters, 150 injured

At least 150 people have been injured after Israeli troops clashed with Palestinian protesters outside Ofer prison in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli forces fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets at hundreds of Palestinians and foreign activists who had gathered outside Ofer military prison near the city of Ramallah on Friday.

The protest was held to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoners who are on hunger strike in Israeli jails with protesters calling for their immediate release. Three journalists are reported to be among the injured.

Dozens of Palestinian prisoners, including Samer al-Issawi, are currently on hunger strike, demanding better conditions including increased family visitation rights and an end to solitary confinement.

Issawi, 33, has been on hunger strike for seven months to protest against his administrative detention, a controversial practice used by Tel Aviv, which allows Israeli authorities to hold people, mostly Palestinians, indefinitely without charge or trial.

Issawi was arrested in July 2012 only months after being released as part of a prisoner swap deal between Israel and Hamas.

According to an April 1, 2012, report published by the non-governmental Palestinian Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, at least 4,610 “political” Palestinian prisoners are held in Israeli jails.

Independent sources, however, put the number of Palestinian inmates in Israeli jails at 11,000.

IDF arrests brother of hunger-striking Palestinian detainee – reports

Published: 17 February, 2013, 07:43

The Israeli army has reportedly raided the house of a Palestinian detainee, Samer Issawi, arresting his brother. This comes in the wake of violent clashes during the recent rally in support of the man who had been hunger-striking for over 200 days.

­The Israeli Defense Forces have reportedly raided the house of Samer Issawi’s family in the al-Issawiya neighborhood of East Jerusalem at around midnight GMT. Activists on twitter claimed that Issawi’s brother Shadi had been arrested and released photos and video of the alleged incident

So far, with no official comment on the raid, the reports could not be independently verified.

On Friday a major rally outside Ofer prison in the West Bank in support of prominent prisoner Samer Issawi ended with a violent fight between the Israeli military and Palestinian protesters. According to Israeli officials some 500 Palestinians attacked soldiers with rocks forcing them to respond with tear gas and rubber bullets. Two Israeli soldiers were slightly injured, the military said.

Palestinian medics reported wounds sustained from rubber bullets and said dozens of people suffered gas inhalation.

Also a number of people were reportedly injured in at least three separate clashes as violence spread across the West Bank.

35-year-old Samer Issaawi was initially serving time for alleged terror activity and released in 2011 in a prisoner exchange. In July 2012 he was arrested again over a suspected violation of the terms of his release as he was not allowed to leave Jerusalem.

He has been on hunger strike since the end of July, under medical supervision and eating periodically, Israeli Prison Service spokeswoman Sivan Weizman claimed.

Issaawi’s sister however said he has only been drinking water since January while the prison occasionally takes him to an Israeli hospital for treatment.

Currently four prisoners held by Israel are on hunger strike, according to the Palestinian minister of prisoner affairs, Issa Qaraqe. In 2012 hundreds of Palestinian prisoners forced prison system into concessions by going on hunger strikes.

Israelis troops clash with Palestinian protesters in West Bank

Israeli troops have clashed with Palestinians who were holding demonstrations in the occupied West Bank in solidarity with four hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

On Tuesday, Israeli forces fired tear gas and sound bombs in the northern town of Huwara to disperse hundreds of Palestinian people protesting against the Israeli regime, which is refusing to meet the hunger strikers’ demands.

Israeli soldiers also clashed with demonstrators in the southern city of al-Khalil (Hebron). Similar protests were also held in the city of Ramallah.

Samer al-Issawi, Ayman Sharawna, Ja’afar Ezzedine, and Tareq Qaa’dan are on an open-ended hunger strike to protest their detention conditions in Israeli prisons.

Thirty-five-year-old Issawi, who has been on an intermittent hunger strike for more than 200 days, is said to be in a critical condition. The other three are also suffering health problems.

Also on Tuesday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern about the rapidly deteriorating health condition of the hunger strikers.

He called on Israeli authorities to find a quick solution to resolve the plight of the Palestinian prisoners.

On February 12, acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas appealed to the international community to intervene in support of the Palestinian prisoners.

"Things may get out of control if the lives of the hunger strikers are not saved," Abbas said.

"We ask the international community to respond effectively to ease the situation, otherwise it will be impossible to control and it will deteriorate across the Palestinian territories,” Abbas stated.

"These prisoners are on hunger strike in response to the policy of administrative detention and ill-treatment” by the Israeli regime, he added.

Administrative detention is a sort of imprisonment without trial or charge that allows Israel to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months. The detention order can be renewed for indefinite periods of time.

Israel ‘green lights’ oil extraction on Golan Heights

February 21, 2013 14:31

Israel has authorized drilling for oil on the disputed Golan Heights, local media report. The first license has been awarded to the US-Israeli energy company Genie (GNE).

The process of granting the license began following geological tests, which indicated a large potential oil discovery in the southern Golan Heights – an area of thousands of hectares. The license covers half the area of the Golan from the latitude of Katzrin in the north to Tzemach in the south.

Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, former US Vice-President Dick Cheney and banker Jacob Rothschild are among the shareholders of GNE, a New Jersey-based company. It is headed by Effie Eitam, a Golan settler and former hardline rightwing Israeli cabinet minister.

Genie Energy is the parent company of Israel Energy Initiatives Ltd. (IEI), which is moving forward on a venture to develop shale oil deposits in the coastal plain.

Another company which took part in the bid for the oil extraction license was local Ultra Equity Investments Ltd. Israel’s Ministry of Energy and Water Resources' Petroleum Council reportedly recommended awarding the license to Genie Energy for professional reasons several days ago.

Israel’s move, reported by Tel-Aviv’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper on Thursday, is likely to draw international protest.

"Awarding a drilling license on the Golan could cause an international fracas, given the Golan's status as occupied Syrian territory under international law," wrote business journal Globes.

Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East Six-Day War and annexed it in 1981. The move wasn’t recognized by the international community, but the strategic plateau has been extensively settled by Israelis.

The Golan's status has been at the heart of past Israeli-Syrian peace talks, with Damascus demanding its full return. Oil exploration for the area was halted 20 years ago, as Israel hoped for a peace deal with Syria, but the accord is yet to be signed.

Permission for oil drilling on the Golan Heights was granted a month before US President Barack Obama is due to pay a visit to the Hebrew state. In November 2012, Washington swiftly condemned the move as unhelpful, ahead of a visit by Vice-President Joe Biden.

RW - Illegal has no meaning to Israel. They have no authority whatsoever to be 'granting' a license to harvest resources in land that is not theirs. But I rather doubt this act is 'likely to draw international protest'.

held by Israel. (file photo)

 
Israeli security forces have attacked a large crowd of Palestinians who demonstrated in solidarity with several thousand Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons.

On Thursday, hundreds of Palestinians gathered at the Beitunia military checkpoint in the West Bank to sympathize with 4,500 Palestinian prisoners, four of whom are on hunger strike, The Associated Press reported.

Some of the Palestinian prisoners are held in a military prison near the checkpoint.

The Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the protestors.

Mohammad Samhan, an official with Palestinian Red Crescent, said 27 people were injured while some 30 others were treated for inhaling tear gas.

On Wednesday, Palestinian protesters held a demonstration in the West Bank city of Ramallah in solidarity with hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

Israeli troops clashed with Palestinian protesters supporting those on hunger strike in the West Bank town of Huwara on February 19. The troops used tear gas and sound bombs to disperse the demonstrators.

Also on Thursday, Palestinian inmate Saamer al-Isaawi, who has been on hunger strike for more than 200 days, was sentenced by an Israeli court to eight months in jail. He might be released as early as next month since he was arrested on July 7, 2012.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has voiced deep concern over the dire condition of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli jails.

Palestinian prisoner dies in Israel's Magiddo jail

A Palestinian prisoner held at an Israeli prison has reportedly died, once again bringing to the attention of the world the plight of these captives in Zionist jails.

Palestinian prisoner’s society sources said the detainee was pronounced dead at Israel’s Magiddo prison on Saturday. However, there still has been no official report on the cause of death.

The Palestinian Authority minister for prisoners’ affairs identified the prisoner as Arafat Jaradat. Israeli radio said the 30-year-old Palestinian died of heart attack.

More than 4,500 Palestinian prisoners are held in Israeli prisons, many of them without charge or trial. Four of these prisoners-- Ayman Sharawneh, Samer al-Issawi, Jaafar Ezzedine, and Tareq Qaa’dan --have been on long-time hunger strike.

The deteriorating health condition of the four prisoners has sparked several demonstrations across the Palestinian territories. They were admitted to hospital on Friday.

The four have been on hunger strike for months to protest against their administrative detention, a controversial practice used by Tel Aviv, which allows the Israeli authority to hold Palestinians indefinitely without charging them or trial.

Issawi was arrested in July 2012 only months after being released as part of a prisoner swap deal between Israel and Hamas.

On Feb. 21, Issawi, 33, was given eight months in jail for violating the terms of his release from a previous sentence.

The Palestinian Representative's Speech at the UN


This reminded me of ''WHY YOU ARE DEPRESSED''

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land."

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc.

... I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck.......

Folks, we're screwed.....
"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".
...Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with.

Israel demands Palestinian leaders quell unrest following prisoner death

Israel has sent an “unequivocal demand” to the Palestinian Authority to reduce tensions after thousands of detainees staged hunger strikes in Israeli prisons and violent protests erupted in the West Bank following the death of an inmate.

"Israel has conveyed to the Palestinian Authority (PA) an unequivocal demand to calm the territory," Reuters cites the Israeli government as saying.

The official added the message was delivered to the PA by one of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's top aides.

Netanyahu also put forward an apparent incentive to the PA by promising to go ahead with the transfer of some $100 million in tax revenues which Israel collects on Palestine’s behalf, but had been withholding.

"In order that the non-payment of taxes that Israel collects for the Palestinians should not serve as an excuse for the Palestinian Authority not to calm the territory, Netanyahu instructed the money for January to be transferred," a government statement read.

A senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, was not forthcoming on how the PA would react to the demand, though he blamed Israel for the recent surge in violence.

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were placed on high alert in the West Bank and east Jerusalem following clashes, which erupted after Arafat Jaradat, a 30-year-old Palestinian inmate, reportedly died of a cardiac arrest on Saturday in Megiddo prison.

Israel’s internal intelligence service, Shin Bet, said Jaradat had been arrested on Monday for his involvement in a stone-throwing incident last November in which one IDF soldier was injured.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) holds Israeli officials responsible for Jaradat's death.

"This is not an isolated case. This is the case of the rights of all the prisoners - rights that are being violated by the occupation. This requires quick action to open Israeli prisons to the world," said PA Minister for Prison Affairs Issa Qaraqaa.

"Our information was that Jaradat was being interrogated and then he died. Therefore we call for an international investigation into his death, that may have resulted from torture," Qaraqaa continued.

Following the autopsy of Jaradat in Israel on Sunday, Saber Aloul, chief pathologist of the Palestinian Authority who was present at the procedure, said marks on Jaradat's body showed he had been tortured during his interrogation, Haaretz reports. Aloul further said there were no signs of heart failure.

Israel's Health Ministry said it was not yet possible to determine the cause of death, and no signs of injury were discovered with the the exception of those received during the admission of CPR and scuff marks.

Hundreds of Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank city of Hebron and nearby villages on Sunday.

Some 200 Palestinians hurled stones and set tires ablaze in central Hebron, as IDF troops responded with rubber bullets.

Sources in Ramallah also said the 15-year-old son of a Palestinian security services chief was wounded by IDF gunfire in a protest near the Beitounia Crossing, Haaretz reports. Another 20-year-old protester was also wounded by live fire, the sources say.

More than 4,500 prisoners also held a one-day fast on Sunday to protest Jaradat’s death.

Four other Palestinian prisoners are in the midst of a hunger strike which has already inspired a wave of violent protests in the West Bank over the past week.

Palestinian leaders have warned that the death of any of the four hunger strikers could spark a wave of unrest which might be beyond their power to control.

Why would a Palestinian do something like this?
And cover their faces while doing so?
And make sure it's captured on camera...

Thousands go on fast in Israeli jails

February 25, 2013

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: Some 3,000 Palestinians held in Israeli jails were staging a one-day hunger strike Sunday in protest at the death of an inmate, an official said, as security forces clashed with demonstrators in the West Bank.

“About 3,000 prisoners announced that they would refuse meals,” Israel Prisons Service spokeswoman Sivan Weizman, said. “It’s just the meals of one day; three meals.” Arafat Jaradat, a 30-year-old father of two, from the village of Sair near Hebron in the southern West Bank, died suddenly on Saturday in an Israeli jail from what prison authorities said appeared to have been cardiac arrest.

Palestinians called for an international investigation of Israel’s treatment of detained Palestinians.

Protesters in his home village and in different parts of Hebron city hurled stones at Israeli security forces who responded with tear gas and stun grenades, witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Media said Israeli security forces were on the standby in case of further demonstrations.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club, meanwhile, said the number of inmates on open-ended hunger strike had climbed to 11 from four.

Jaradat’s death came a day after nearly 100 Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli security forces during demonstrations in the West Bank to demand the release of the hunger strikers.
