Double photo of the wall in Abu Dis:Two photos joined, taken from the identical spot on either side of the Israeli wall as it severs Abu Dis in two (left=east, right=west; note the same minaret in both photos). The wall orphans Abu Dis on the right side into East Jerusalem. This both enlarges Israel’s claimed annexation of East Jerusalem, and facilitates the ethnic cleansing of the area’s people, since they now have the “wrong” ID cards (West Bank instead of East Jerusalem) in Israel’s bantustan system for non-Jews. Palestinians on the left side cannot go to the right side without special permission; for foreigners, it is perhaps a half-hour drive. Although Palestinians on the right side are free to go to the left side, they will likely never be able to return to the right side if they do. [photos: T Suárez]

Palestine: Five pivotal media fudges that empower Israel’s ongoing crimes

The western mass media’s coverage of the so-called “conflict” in Israel-Palestine is so flawed as to turn upside-down the public’s understanding of what is happening. Following are five specific points that are particularly relevant to the current violence. East Jerusalem is not in Israel. News analyses of Israeli actions at Sheikh Jarrah and the Al-Aqsa Mosque are invariably premised as[Read More…]

Muna is Palestine, Yakub is Israel: The Untold Story of Sheikh Jarrah

Muna is Palestine, Yakub is Israel: The Untold Story of Sheikh Jarrah

There are two separate Sheikh Jarrah stories – one read and watched in the news and another that receives little media coverage or due analysis. The obvious story is that of the nightly raids and violence meted out by Israeli police and Jewish extremists against Palestinians in the devastated East Jerusalem neighborhood. For weeks, thousands of Jewish extremists have targeted[Read More…]

UAE and Israeli settlers find common ground in Jerusalem

Weakened by Joe Biden’s electoral defeat of US President Donald J. Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu risks being caught between a rock and a hard place as Jordan, the Palestine Authority and the United Arab Emirates manoeuvre for control of what is to Jews the Temple Mount and to Muslims the Haram ash-Sharif, the third most holy site in[Read More…]

Hagia Sophia – Babri Masjid And Temple Mount

There hasn’t been any news in the world media as to what Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al Makli  said on June 16, 2020, about how the purported annexation of Jordan Valley, Northern Dead Sea and parts of Judea and Samaria,  by Israel, is actually a ploy to demolish Al Aqsa 1 mosque  and raise the Third-Temple of Jews on[Read More…]

Palestinians Are Seeking Justice In Jerusalem – Not An Abusive Life-Long Mate

Palestinians Are Seeking Justice In Jerusalem – Not An Abusive Life-Long Mate

  Several articles have been published about the “legal limbo” in which Palestinian Jerusalemites exist and proposals as to what Israel ought to do about this 50-year old travesty, among them being righting “the wrong” of denying Palestinian Arabs in East Jerusalem Israeli citizenship. In my view, such articles both define the injustice done to Palestinians deceptively and are meant[Read More…]

UNESCO Censures Israel’s Administration Of Jerusalem

In response to UNESCO resolutions adopted in October that were highly critical of Israel’s protection of sacred and cultural Islamic heritage sites in Jerusalem, there is again a fiery confrontation between Israel and this UN organ whose actions have so often touched the raw nerves of Western political sensibilities. The main UNESCO resolution ‘deeply deplores’ Israel’s failure to stop a[Read More…]

The War On UNESCO: Al-Aqsa Mosque Is Palestinian And East Jerusalem Is Illegally Occupied 

Did Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, actually read the full text of the UNESCO resolution on Palestine and Israel, before he raved with anger?     “I think this is a mistaken, inconceivable resolution,” he said. “It is not possible to continue with these resolutions at the UN and UNESCO that aim to attack Israel. It is shocking and I have ordered[Read More…]
