"It's Your Allies, Stupid" -- America's Greater Middle East Disaster (Pt 2)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
For Part 1 on Afghanistan, click here. America may still be the greatest military power on the planet by far, but across the Greater Middle East the U.S. is being challenged, its standing subverted, its reputation diminished -- not only by its enemies, but, even more, by its supposed allies. These supposedly partners often have totally different interests from America's, and act accordingly. They -- like Russia's President Putin -- have also apparently concluded they have little to fear from harsh U.S. reprisals. Indeed, the new head of the Afghan Taliban, Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, owes his position, according to the New York Times, to his very tight relationship with Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency, as well as his generous payouts to other Taliban commanders. Which explains why, while the U.S. has been using drones to knock off terrorists around the globe, Mullah Mansour has lived quite openly in a well-guarded suburb of Quetta, Pakistan, where he and ...

Don’t argue, don’t engage, just ignore…..Self-appointed Zionist censors bent on silencing rational debate shouldn’t be let in the door
Intifada - almost 2 years
  Self-appointed Zionist censors bent on silencing rational debate shouldn’t be let in the door   by Stuart Littlewood The Royal Northern College of Music is a case in point. This institution was recently bullied by the Zionist lobby group North West Friends of Israel (NWFoI) into cancelling a concert by famous jazz saxophonist Gilad Atzmon. Atzmon is a Jew who was born in Israel and served in the Israeli military. He is the author of ‘The Wandering Who’ and an avid blogger. He is also a fierce critic of the Jewish state’s “supremacist tribal ideology” that drives the Zionists’ expansionist greed. And – quelle surprise! – the individual leading NWFoI’s assault on people’s harmless art entertainment is reported to have a shady past. Shady, as in struck off from practising as a lawyer. And as in being fined and banned by the Football Association for “foul and abusive behaviour”. He’s identified only as ‘Anthony’ on the NWFoI website. The NWFoI released a statement explai ...

AP Releases Comprehensive Report on Fatalities in Gaza Home Strikes
Fox News - about 2 years
By Ford Fischer, Special Report College Associate A new report released by the Associated Press details the outcome of this summer’s conflict between Israelis and Palestinians along the Gaza strip. At least 844 Palestinians were killed as a result of the airstrikes on homes this summer. Of those, only 92 were confirmed or suspected militants. The AP report explained that these airstrikes made up only 247 of the 5,000 airstrikes launched by Israel during the conflict. The report found that approximately one third of the dead were children, and 60% were women, children, or older men. The other 240 were males aged 18-59 with no known connection to militant groups. Gaza militants fired 4,300 rockets at Israel, who conducted a total of 5,000 airstrikes. While the number of rockets fired is relatively equal, only five Israeli civilians were killed, along with 67 soldiers. Palestinians largely feel that Israel is specifically targeting citizens.

Scarlett Johansson row has boosted Israeli settlement boycott, say activists
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Pro-boycott campaigners believe they will benefit from SodaStream controversy despite actor cutting ties with Oxfam The movement to boycott Israeli goods linked to settlements has been boosted by "Scarlett syndrome", say activists, after the high-profile controversy over the film star Scarlett Johansson's endorsement of SodaStream. Pro-boycott campaigners believe they will benefit from the celebrity furore, even though Johansson – faced with the incompatibility of sponsorship of SodaStream, which has a factory in an illegal settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, and her role as a goodwill ambassador for Oxfam – broke links with the charity. The row follows mounting pressure, especially from Europe, where NGOs, trade unions, churches and others are forcing their governments to take action. The number of European corporations who have severed or reviewed links with Israeli companies which operate in settlements is accelerating; the European Union is taking an increasingly tou ...

Israel Starts Releasing Palestinian Prisoners
Huffington Post - over 3 years
JERUSALEM — Israel began the process of releasing 26 Palestinian prisoners late Tuesday, an initial gesture on the eve of renewed Mideast negotiations. Thousands of Palestinians have spent time in Israeli prisons since Israel's capture of the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem in 1967. They were jailed on charges ranging from throwing rocks to killing civilians in bombings and other attacks. The decision to release the men has stirred anguish in Israel, particularly among the relatives of those killed in attacks. Meanwhile celebrations were planned in the Palestinian territory, where Palestinians generally view the prisoners as heroes, regardless of their acts, arguing they made personal sacrifices in the struggle for independence. The Israeli prison service said buses carrying the inmates left the Ayalon jail in central Israel late Tuesday. Israel released them late at night to prevent a spectacle. Some protesters tried in a symbolic move to block the buses fr ...

Middle East Peace Talks To Resume Amid Deep Skepticism
Huffington Post - over 3 years
JERUSALEM — Israeli and Palestinian teams flew to Washington on Monday to end five years of diplomatic stalemate and prepare for a new round of Mideast peace talks, though optimism was in short supply after two decades of failed attempts to reach a deal. The resumption of talks was made possible by a decision by Israel's Cabinet on Sunday to free 104 long-held Palestinian prisoners in four stages, linked to progress in talks. The release was part of an agreement brokered early this month by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to bring the sides back to the negotiating table. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been reluctant to negotiate with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fearing the hard-line Israeli leader will reject what the Palestinians consider minimal territorial demands. The Palestinians want a state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in 1967, but have accepted the principle of limited land swaps to al ...

Palestinians have little faith in Kerry effort
Fox News - over 3 years
Palestinians believe the U.S. effort to restart peace talks is doomed, and they're preparing instead to resume their campaign of seeking membership in key international organizations as soon as next month, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrives on another peace mission, Israel and the Palestinians appear to be as divided as ever over the issue of Israeli settlement building. Without major U.S. pressure on Israel, Palestinians believe the outlook seems bleak. Kerry's arrival Thursday is the latest in a series of meetings with Israelis and Palestinians over the past two months aimed at getting them back to the negotiating table. While Palestinians praised Kerry's efforts, they said there has been little progress ahead of what they believe to be a June 7 deadline and said they are already beginning work on a "day-after" strategy. "We don't have unrealistic expectations. We ...

Obama's Gamble
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
JERUSALEM — In a landmark speech to young Israelis this week, the visiting U.S. President Barack Obama delivered an unorthodox appeal couched behind warm words of affinity for their country: Urge your leaders to change their ways and take bold new steps to reach peace with the Palestinians. The message, potentially risking the ire of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, marked a gamble by the U.S. leader as he searches for ways to restart long-stalled Mideast peace efforts. With no breakthroughs coming out of the visit on the Palestinian front, Obama must now hope that the power of the presidency, combined with the goodwill he accumulated during the 48-hour visit, can persuade a still-skeptical Israeli leadership to abandon some deeply entrenched views and get negotiations moving again. After a first term plagued by repeated run-ins with Netanyahu and perceptions among Israelis that he was cool to their cause and perhaps even hostile to their prime minister, ...

UN panel finds Israeli settlements violate rights
Fox News - about 4 years
The United Nations' first report on Israel's overall settlement policy describes it as a "creeping annexation" of territory that clearly violates the human rights of Palestinians, and calls for Israel to immediately stop further such construction. The report's conclusions, revealed Thursday, are not legally binding, but they further inflame tensions between the U.N. Human Rights Council and Israel, and between Israel and the Palestinians. Israeli officials immediately denounced the report, while Palestinians pointed to it as "proof of Israel's policy of ethnic cleansing" and its desire to undermine the possibility of a Palestinian state. The Palestinians also hinted that they could use the report as a basis for legal action toward a war crimes prosecution. In its report to the 47-nation council, a panel of investigators said Israel is violating international humanitarian law under the Fourth Geneva Convention, one of the treaties that establish the ground rules for what is con ...

Rise of Israeli centrist raises hopes for peace
Fox News - about 4 years
The unexpectedly strong showing by a new centrist party in Israel's parliamentary election has raised hopes of a revival of peace talks with Palestinians that have languished for four years under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Political newcomer Yair Lapid, the surprise kingmaker, is already being courted by a weakened Netanyahu, who needs his support to form a ruling coalition. Lapid has said he will not sit in the government unless the peace process is restarted. But following a campaign in which the Palestinian issue was largely ignored, it remains unclear how hard Lapid will push the issue in what could be weeks of coalition talks with Netanyahu. Tuesday's election ended in a deadlock, with Netanyahu's hard-line religious bloc of allies and the rival bloc of centrist, secular and Arab parties each with 60 seats, according to near-complete official results. Opinion polls had universally forecast a majority of seats going to the right- ...

Peace With Palestinians Not At Top Of Israeli Election Agenda
Huffington Post - about 4 years
JERUSALEM -- Benjamin Netanyahu seems poised for re-election as Israel's prime minister in Tuesday's voting, the result of the failure of his opponents to unite behind a viable candidate against him – and the fact that most Israelis no longer seem to believe it's possible to reach a peace settlement with the Palestinians. The widely held assumption of a victory by Netanyahu comes despite his grim record: there is no peace process, there is growing diplomatic isolation and a slowing economy, and his main ally has been forced to step down as foreign minister because of corruption allegations. Even so, Netanyahu has managed to convince enough Israelis that he offers a respectable choice by projecting experience, toughness and great powers of communication in both native Hebrew and flawless American English. He was also handed a gift by the opposition. Persistent squabbling by main figures divided among main parties in the moderate camp has made this the first elec ...

Palestinian official threatens war crime charge over Israel construction in Jerusalem
Fox News - about 4 years
Israel is moving forward with plans for two major settlement projects in east Jerusalem, a spokeswoman said Tuesday, even as a senior Palestinian official warned that his government could pursue war crimes charges if Israel doesn't halt such construction. International anger over Israeli settlement construction has snowballed in recent days, following last week's U.N. recognition of a state of Palestine -- in lands Israel occupied in 1967 -- as a non-member observer in the General Assembly. Israel retaliated for U.N. recognition of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem by announcing plans to build 3,000 homes for Jews in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as preparations for construction of an especially sensitive project near Jerusalem, known as E-1. The Israeli reprisal has prompted the country's strongest Western allies to take an unusually strong line with the Jewish state. British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned Tuesday that the latest Israe ...

Palestinians set to win statehood recognition in UN vote
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Palestinian officials hope for more than 130 yes votes in 193-nation general assembly, despite US and Israeli opposition The UN general assembly is set to implicitly recognise a sovereign state of Palestine on Thursday despite threats by the United States and Israel to punish the Palestinian Authority by withholding much-needed funds for the West Bank government. A resolution to change the Palestinian Authority's UN observer status from "entity" to "non-member state," like the Vatican, is expected to pass easily in the 193-nation general assembly. Israel, the US and a handful of other members plan to vote against what they see as a largely symbolic and counterproductive move by the Palestinians. The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, has led the campaign to win support for the resolution, and more than a dozen European governments have offered him their support. The US state department said on Wednesday that the deputy secretary of state, Bill Burns, made a last-ditch effort t ...

Palestinians say UN bid is last-ditch peace effort
Fox News - about 4 years
A Palestinian spokeswoman says a bid to seek U.N. recognition of a state of Palestine in Israeli-occupied lands is a last-ditch attempt to rescue the troubled Mideast peace efforts. Hanan Ashrawi, a senior official with the Palestinian Liberation Organization, urged the U.S. on Wednesday to drop its opposition to the bid, calling Washington's stance "pathetic" and harmful to American interests in the Arab world. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is to ask the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday to recognize Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967. Overwhelming approval is likely, while the U.S., Israel and a few others are opposed. Ashrawi says the Palestinians withstood intense U.S. pressure to drop the bid.

Palestinians give cool reception to US debate
Fox News - over 4 years
Palestinians gave a cool reception Tuesday to the performance of both U.S. presidential candidates in their foreign policy debate, saying American standing in the Middle East would be doomed without a greater effort to resolve the festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Neither President Barack Obama nor Republican challenger Mitt Romney spoke much about the Israel-Palestinian conflict during Monday night's debate. Both men, however, took great efforts to voice support for Israel's security, in an apparent gesture to influential Jewish voters. Nabil Abu Rdeneh, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Tuesday that he understands that candidates are wary about discussing the sensitive conflict during an election season. "But it should be clear to the United States that without solving the Palestinians-Israeli conflict, there will be no success for American policy in the Middle East," he said. The Palestinia ...

Hanan Ashrawi: Israel's Cynical Definition of 'Refugee'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In an Arabic-language article published last week, I argued that Israel's new campaign to artificially equate Palestinian refugees and Jews who either immigrated or fled to Israel from Arab states relies on a forced and false analogy. Zionist ideology contradicts the notion that these Israeli Jews are refugees, and six decades of Israeli policy demonstrate Israel's complete disregard for Palestinian refugee rights. Israel's manipulative strategy is part of a public relations campaign that is both cynical and hypocritical. At the very core of Zionist ideology is the idea that Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people. If this is the case, and Jews living in Israel are citizens of their singular national homeland, then the state cannot consider them refugees -- they cannot be returnees to Israel and refugees from another homeland at the same time. Demanding that the international community treat Jewish immigrants as refugees is therefore an act of "dezionization." If, howev ...

Daoud Kuttab: How Palestinians Can Engage the West
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Anyone following the Palestinian struggle for liberation understands that the only path to success today is through a concerted, holistic, non-violent approach. Palestinian leaders, including President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, have been repeatedly and consistently opposing any violent solution and supporting acts of popular non-violent resistance. Recently, they even succeeded in convincing the leaders of the Islamic Hamas movement to utter the words "popular resistance," even if Hamas has not acted on them. Using non-violence requires a high degree of discipline, and sophisticated media and public relations approach. The entire premise of this form of struggle is based on the need to win the hearts and minds of one's opponents, as well as of those in countries that are supporting one's adversaries. Support for Palestine in Asia, Africa and Latin America today is at an all-time high. The conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, which was held in I ...

Foul Play? New Findings May Result In Digging Up Yasser Arafat's Bones
Huffington Post - over 4 years
RAMALLAH, West Bank -- Digging up Yasser Arafat's bones may offer the best shot at learning if the legendary Palestinian leader was poisoned, as many of his old comrades-in-arms claim, but Palestinian officials signaled Thursday they're not rushing into an autopsy. Arafat's 2004 death remains shrouded in mystery, and this week's findings by Switzerland's Institute of Radiation Physics – that belongings linked to Arafat contained an elevated level of a radioactive agent – have revived speculation about foul play. However, the institute said more tests are needed, prompting Arafat's widow Suha to demand that her husband's remains, buried under a glass-and-stone mausoleum in his former West Bank compound, be exhumed. Arafat's successor, President Mahmoud Abbas, has agreed to an autopsy in principle, but it seems a final decision will take time. Abbas aide Nimr Hamad said Thursday that a team of experts would first be sent to Europe to learn more from the Swiss ...

Her selection was controversial among some Jewish political organisations. Michael Kapel, a member of the board of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council called her "an apologist for Islamic terror". Activist Antony Loewenstein argued in his book My Israel Question that the Australian media, and various Jewish organizations, defamed and vilified Ashrawi in order to prevent her winning the Peace Prize.
