Netanyahu isn’t looking for a long-term solution now. He doesn’t believe one exists with the Palestinians, besides what he call “peace of deterrence” – another word for bullying the Palestinians until they give up. He’s perfectly aware that won’t happen in the foreseeable future and he’s prepared to wait even for another generation if that’s what it takes.
(15.10.2018) If Israel is dragged into a military operation in the Gaza Strip amid ongoing clashes on the Israel-Gaza border, it should be called the “Mahmoud Abbas War,” Energy Minister and security cabinet member Yuval Steinitz said on Monday.
Speaking at the Maariv Leaders Conference in Jerusalem, Steinitz reiterated his warning last year that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has a “strategic program to embroil Israel in a conflict in Gaza, and he wants to manipulate us into a conflict Israel is not interested in at a time that isn’t desirable.”
(1.11.2017) The Islamic militant group Hamas on Wednesday handed over control of Gaza’s border crossings with Israel and Egypt to the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority, taking the first tangible step toward implementing a reconciliation deal with the rival Fatah movement.
Palestinian officials said the group of Hamas men were fired at from a passing car.
Palestinian sources told Haaretz that one of the casualties is Nur Barake, a deputy commander of an elite unit of Iz al-Din al-Qassam, the military wing of Hamas. According to a statement from Hamas‘ military wing, Israeli forces entered Gaza in a civilian vehicle three kilometers east of Khan Yunis. The exchange of fire began after Israeli soldiers kiled Barake.
Sollten die Berichte zutreffen, wäre es eine höchst ungewöhnliche Operation: Israelische Spezialkräfte sollen innerhalb des Gazastreifens das Feuer auf militante Palästinenser eröffnet haben. Normalerweise operiert die israelische Armee aus der Luft oder von Stellungen außerhalb des Gazastreifens.
According to the report, the sea route will be under international supervision in addition to Israeli security monitoring. However, it is yet unclear how and in what manner the sea route will operate.
Die französische Tageszeitung Le Monde bemerkte, dass niemand in der israelischen Botschaft den Bericht überhaupt gesehen hatte, bevor man dagegen protestierte, dass er ausgestrahlt würde, und dass bin Noun sich beschwerte, dass Israel keine Gelegenheit hatte, eine Stellungnahme abzugeben, obwohl der israelische Militärsprecher in dem Bericht befragt wurde.
A delegation from the European Parliament tried to enter Gaza Strip to learn more about the humanitarian situation in the territory but were banned from entering by Israel Wednesday. Israel has repeatedly denied the delegation access to visit the Strip since 2011 and the Palestinian parliament has condemned the ban.
Während israelische Soldaten auf palästinensische Demonstranten schossen, trafen sich Aktivisten aus dem Gazastreifen und Israel – auf zwei Seiten des Zauns – zum Tee, zu einem symbolischen Akt der Sehnsucht nach einem Tag ohne Barrieren und Aggressionen
On Friday, during the weekly „March for Return“ protests that Palestinians have held on the Gaza-Israel border since the end of March, 17-year-old Bilal Hafaje was killed by live Israeli fire, while at least another 30 were wounded, the Gaza Health Ministry reported.
Gaza’s Health Ministry also said that a 19-year-old Palestinian man died of wounds he had sustained in clashes along the border on July 14. The ministry identified the man as Amjad Hamdona, whose death brings the amount of demonstrators killed along the border to 174.
Hamas is negotiating with Israel, through Egyptian brokerage, for a truce aimed at ending the violence and easing the Gaza blockade. The only party that seems vehemently opposed to any truce is the Palestinian Authority
Hamas leader Ismail Haniya said an end to Israel’s decade-long blockade of Gaza was „around the corner“ as talk of a possible truce deal intensifies.
Indirect negotiations between Gaza’s Hamas rulers and Israel brokered by Egyptian and UN officials have reportedly included discussion on easing the blockade, but by no means a complete lifting of it.
A deal negotiated between Israel and Hamas via UN and Egyptian mediation, whose first stage went into effect on Wednesday, entails a commitment to rebuild the Gaza Strip’s infrastructure and a prisoner swap to…
Understanding, approved by all minister but Bennett and Shaked, includes six phases to be implemented gradually
Wie FAIR bereits öfter aufgezeigt hat, wird der Begriff „Zusammenstoß“ fast immer verwendet, um ungleiche Machtverhältnisse schönzureden und dem Leser den Eindruck zweier gleichberechtigter Seiten zu vermitteln. Er verschleiert die Machtdynamik und die Art des Konflikts selbst, z.B. wer ihn ausgelöst hat und welche Waffen, wenn überhaupt, eingesetzt wurden. „Zusammenstoß“ ist der beste Freund eines Reporters, wenn er Gewalt beschreiben will, ohne Machthaber zu beleidigen – in den Worten von George Orwell, „um Dinge zu benennen, ohne mentale Bilder von ihnen aufzurufen“.
It obscures power dynamics and the nature of the conflict itself, e.g., who instigated it and what weapons if any were used. “Clash” is a reporter’s best friend when they want to describe violence without offending anyone in power—in the words of George Orwell, “to name things without calling up mental pictures of them.”
Smoke rises after an Israeli aircraft bombed a multi-storey building in Gaza City August 9, 2018
(17.7.2014) Israel says it is considering a new ceasefire proposal from Egypt that would take effect on Friday. There is no word yet from Hamas, which rejected the last proposal on the grounds its leaders were never consulted and the terms would have allowed for the continued siege of Gaza and for Israeli bombardment at will. The news of a fresh proposal comes just as a five hour humanitarian pause has ended. The United Nations asked for the break to let Gazans receive supplies and repair damage following 10 days of Israeli bombings. On Wednesday, an Israeli gunboat shelled a beach killing four boys who were playing. The boys were all between the ages of nine and 11 and from the same extended family. Seven other adults and children were wounded in the strike. The scene was witnessed by several international journalists, including our guest Tyler Hicks, a Pulitzer Prize-winning staff photographer at The New York Times. We are also joined from Gaza City by Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous, who has interviewed family members of the young victims
(9.6.2006) This video is my recording of an Aljazeera news segment aired on Friday June 10th at 10pm EST.
(9.6.2006) „Three children were there, two with severe deep cuts in their heads.
One girl was just screaming, crying out for her father: ‚Dad, my dad.‘
It was a terrible scene, with blood everywhere. We could see a gunship in middle of sea, so we knew what had happened.
The medics arrived and started moving the bodies away. I helped them. It was shocking – it’s the first time I have been around to see this kind of thing.“
Southern Command chief Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi and Home Front Command chief Maj. Gen. Tamir Yadai speak with the mayor of the town, Alon Davidi, and visit one rocket impact site, the army says.
Halevi praises the residents of the city and the local government for standing up to “challenging situations.”
Palestinian factions in Gaza declared Thursday that they consider the latest round of violence between Israel and Gaza over, saying that maintaining the peace now depends on Israel. After the statement was released, however, a rocket was fired at the city of Be’er Sheva, located some 40 kilometers from the Strip. This was the first time rockets were fired at the city since the 2014 Gaza war.
Kurz vor einem Waffenstillstand zwischen der im aufständischen Teil der israelischen Kolonie Palästina herrschenden Hamas im Gazastreifen und der israelischen Regierung Netanyahu in Jerusalem eskaliert plötzlich die Situation.
On Tuesday, the Israeli military struck a Hamas military post in Gaza after it said militants fired on Israeli troops on the border. Hamas said two of its fighters were killed after taking part in a gunfire parade inside a militant camp.
The incident occurred while a group of senior Hamas leaders from abroad were visiting Gaza to discuss the ceases-fire efforts with local leaders.
Two months into construction of Israel’s underwater barrier, the Defense Ministry has released the first pictures of the project meant to stave off Hamas infiltration into Israel by sea.
Israels Verteidigungsministerium hat gestern erste Bilder einer Seesperre zum Gazastreifen veröffentlicht. Die auf Twitter verbreiteten Aufnahmen zeigen eine Art Wellenbrecher, der weit ins Meer reicht. Die „Jerusalem Post“ berichtete, die Sperre solle 50 Meter breit und sechs Meter hoch werden. Sie solle etwa 200 Meter weit ins Mittelmeer reichen.
While the Kerem Shalom crossing into the Gaza Strip remains partially opened, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman announced Thursday that he is indefinitely forbidding its use to import fuel or gas into the besieged strip.
The ministry said its diplomats in Israel had been providing consular assistance to five Norwegians who were among the 22 passengers and crew detained onboard the vessel Kaarstein on Sunday.
A list of people on board names activists from 16 countries, mainly from Europe but also Malaysia, the US and Israel, on the ship carrying €13,000 worth of medical supplied for Gaza.
Step 25 is possibly the biggest Palestinian music album for years. Nobody’s done an album with 25 songs and more than 70 artists participating in it. The album is a mix of genres, but led by a rapper [MC Gaza]. It has more than 15 types of music with 25 subjects. Step 25 is all about what we are living through in Palestine; society, politics, humanity and even some fun subjects are in the album.
I made Step 25 all by myself, with my own power and three years of hard working. Nobody sponsored it. But this is why I made a fundraising campaign – so I can share it to the people of the world. I hope everyone will help and support the album.
Dahinter verbirgt sich eine bestimmte Logik. Die israelische Regierung will das Westjordanland annektieren. Sie will die arabische Bevölkerung herausholen und durch jüdische Siedler ersetzen. Sie betreibt diese Politik langsam, vorsichtig, aber konsequent.
Es ist eine grausame Politik, eine verabscheuungswürdige Politik, und doch hat sie eine gewisse Logik. Wenn Sie dieses abscheuliche Ziel wirklich erreichen wollen, sind die Methoden vielleicht ausreichend. Aber das gilt nicht für den Gazastreifen, den niemand annektieren will. Dort sind diese Methoden pure Torheit.
Das bedeutet nicht, dass die gesamte israelische Politik gegenüber den Palästinensern insgesamt weiser ist. Das ist sie nicht.
Binyamin Netanyahu und seine handverlesenen dummen Minister haben keine Politik. So sieht es aus. Tatsächlich haben sie eine nicht deklarierte Agenda: die schleichende Annexion des Westjordanlandes.
Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces on Saturday evening prevented the Palestinian citizens taking part in a demonstration against PA sanctions on Gaza from reaching the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Ramallah.
Israel’s government has instructed the country’s military to prepare for a major military offensive against the Gaza Strip if the launching of “incendiary kites and balloons” over the Gaza-Israel border is not stopped by this Friday. If those objects continue to cross the border, Israel may decide it has “no choice” but to embark on a military campaign intended to “conquer all of Gaza,” according to a report that aired on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Tuesday and was cited by the Times of Israel.(…)
The high probability of a conflict was also mentioned in February by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, who stated that another Israeli invasion of Gaza was “likely” to occur this year.
However, the prime minister had to make it look like something was being done, in light of the fires that keep raging in Israeli border communities. The media and right-wing critics have already pushed Netanyahu into a military operation he didn’t want in the Gaza Strip, twice: Operation Pillar of Defense (2012) and Operation Protective Edge (2014). This time, he looked better prepared to stand firm in the breach, but not to take responsibility.
According to the HRW report, senior Israeli officials approved orders to shoot at protesters who posed no imminent threat to life, acts that might amount to war crime.
Der Protest fand trotz eines vorübergehenden Demonstrationsverbots statt, das am Mittwoch verkündet wurde. Die Veranstalter haben weitere Kundgebungen angekündigt. Demonstranten haben den PA-Führer Mahmoud Abbas von der Fatah aufgefordert, Sanktionen gegen die rivalisierende Hamas in Gaza fallen zu lassen, von denen sie glauben, dass sie dessen zwei Millionen Einwohner treffen.
WHAT CAN be done to counter such brainwashing?
First of all: there is a vital need for a second voice. Brainwashing can be efficient only when the official voice enjoys a complete monopoly. That was one of the aims of Haolam Hazeh, the weekly which I edited for 40 years. It met every untrue government version with a contrary version. Although our voice was weak, compared to the powerful government machine (even in those days), the very fact that there are two voices, however unequal, prevents a total brainwashing. The citizen hears two versions and wonders „who is right?“
If all the peace and human rights groups in Israel set up a joint center for information, which will be heard, perhaps the monopoly of official propaganda can be broken. Perhaps.
There is in the country a tiny band of commentators who are not afraid to tell the truth, even when this is considered treason. Gideon Levy, Amira Hass and a few others. We must ensure that their voice is heard. They must be encouraged.
Wir erfahren vielleicht nie den Namen des Soldaten, der Razan al-Najjar getötet hat. Aber wir kennen die Namen derer, die ihm den Befehl gaben, sie zu töten.
We may never know the name of the soldier who killed Razan al-Najjar. But we do know the names of those who gave the order enabling him to kill her
“MKs from the Left are actually those who wish to privatize the suffering and disconnect the cause from the effect … The responsibility for the suffering of the women in the Gaza Strip lies solely with Israel. After Israel destroyed the infrastructure and the agriculture in Gaza, it dictates to the people there how and where to eat,” she added in rage.
Zoabi went on with her charge. “You all should be boycotted. The people in Gaza are refugees, their land is in Israel. Those murdered by the soldiers are not being accounted for. Democracy is a nightmare in the Knesset,” she accused.
„The U.K. government’s decision not to support either a U.N. Commission of Inquiry into the shocking scale of killings of civilian protesters in Gaza, or the more recent UN resolution condemning indiscriminate Israeli use of force – and calling for the protection of Palestinians – is morally indefensible,“ the Labour leader said.
Several hundred persons, Arabs and Jews, participated in a demonstration in the German Colony in Haifa on late Friday afternoon, June 1, to express solidarity with the nearly 2 million Palestinian people living under the Israeli blockade and repression of the Gaza Strip.
Es ist absolut wichtig für Israel zu sagen, dass ihre Ermordung unbeabsichtigt war, aber es wird schwierig sein, jemanden davon zu überzeugen.
It’s absolutely vital for Israel to say the killing was unintentional, but convincing anyone of that is going to be tricky.
More than 30 Israeli doctors appealed to the Health and Defense ministries urging them to grant permits for 14 female Palestinian cancer patients from the Gaza Strip to enter Israel and the West Bank for treatment, saying delays could be fatal.
Thirty-one oncologists signed a letter to the ministry and the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) highlighting the plight of patients due to the increasing difficulty in traveling for treatment following a tightening of entry permit policies, according to Physicians for Human Rights–Israel.
“It would seem to me that in a journalistic environment where nine out of ten articles that are written about the Gaza conflict are critical of Israel, you’d think that some journalists would take the time and go and meet with experts and try to understand what could have been done differently or better before they criticize. And I just haven’t seen it,” Friedman said at a media conference in Jerusalem.
Razan al-Najjar war seit einiger Zeit ehrenamtliche Sanitäterin, und es gab eine Reihe von Fotos von ihr, wie sie verwundete Einwohner von Gaza behandelte.

She had been working as a volunteer medic to treat wounded protesters. She wore her white paramedic’s uniform. This is what Israel is.
On Friday, she was less than 100 yards from the fence when she was bandaging the man struck by the tear gas canister, Ibrahim al-Najjar said. The man was taken away in an ambulance, and other paramedics tended to Ms. Najjar, who was suffering the effects of the tear gas.
Then shots rang out, and Ms. Najjar fell to the ground.
MEIN HERZ ist bei den Menschen in Gaza. Ich möchte sie in meinem eigenen und dem Namen meines Landes Israel um Verzeihung bitten. Ich sehne mich nach dem Tag, an dem sich alles ändert, dem Tag, an dem eine weisere Regierung einer Hudna zustimmt, die Grenze öffnet und den Menschen von Gaza ermöglicht, in die Welt zurückzukehren.
MY HEART is with the people of Gaza. I desire to ask their forgiveness, in my name and in the name of Israel, my country. I am longing for the day when everything will change, the day when a wiser government will agree to a Hudna, open the border and let the people of Gaza return to the world.

Nach eigenen Angaben fliegt die israelischen Armee derzeit eine Serie von Luftangriffen auf den Gazastreifen. Es handle sich um die größte Operation seit Ende des Gazakriegs 2014. „Die Situation, dass eine Terrororganisation auf israelische Orte feuert, ist unakzeptabel. Seit Mittag haben wir eine Serie von Angriffen im gesamten Gazastreifen begonnen“, sagte Armeesprecher Ronen Manelis in einem kurzfristig einberufenen Gespräch mit Journalisten.
Achieving a cease-fire (or hudna in Arabic) between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip will most likely suffer a delay, despite ongoing negotiations being pursued through several channels.
Egypt, the United States and the United Nations have made progress in formulating a plan, and some ideas were discussed for the first time at the Gaza Conference at the White House in March.
(7.5.2018) Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip have recently conveyed messages to Israel indicating their willingness to negotiate a long term cease-fire in the enclave. These messages were passed through different channels…

Norkin’s announcement, made at a conference in Israel for air force commanders from 20 countries, was planned for maximum exposure. It was a message to Israel’s adversaries in the region that the IAF now has “stealth” capabilities and is the first air force in the Middle East flying aircraft that are capable of evading radar systems and of operating in hostile environments, virtually undetected.
Mehrere Männer hatten die Gaza-Grenze überquert; nach Medienberichten setzten sie ein Scharfschützen-Versteck in Brand. Seit dem 30. März waren bei Massenprotesten an der Gaza-Grenze rund 120 Palästinenser getötet worden. Viele von ihnen wurden von israelischen Scharfschützen erschossen. Israels Armee betont, sie schieße nur im Notfall auf Angreifer an der Grenze.

„But they are, in essence, caged in a toxic slum from birth to death; deprived of dignity; dehumanised by the Israeli authorities to such a point it appears officials do not even consider that these men and women have a right, as well as every reason, to protest.“
Die Palästinenser seien unter Israel als Besatzungsmacht „eingepfercht in einen giftigen Slum von der Geburt bis zum Tod, jeder Würde beraubt“, sagte Said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Gaza Ministry of Health released the names of 59 Palestinians killed:
The shooting happened during a lull in the protests, said Loubani. He was wearing a green surgeon’s outfit and was standing with orange-vested paramedics about 25 metres from the protesters. There were no fires or smoke and he was within clear lines of sight to three fortified sniper posts.
“It’s very hard to believe I wasn’t specifically targeted, considering that there was a lull in activity, considering the fact that I was so clearly marked,” he told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation earlier this week as he recovered from the shooting.
We, Israelis who wish our country to be safe and just, are appalled and horrified by the massive killing of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza (Reports, 15 May). None of the demonstrators posed any direct danger to the state of Israel or to its citizens. The killing of over 50 demonstrators and the thousands more wounded are reminiscent of the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960 in South Africa. The world acted then. We call upon decent members of the international community to act by demanding that those who commanded such shootings be investigated and tried.
The current leaders of the Israeli government are responsible for the criminal policy of shooting at unarmed demonstrators. The world must intervene to stop the ongoing killing.

According to Gaza health officials, at least 52 Palestinians have been shot dead and over 2,400 wounded by Israeli snipers who are positioned along the fence, facing the protesters.
At least 52 Palestinians were killed on Monday in Gaza and more than 2400 others wounded as the Israeli army fired live ammunition, tear gas and firebombs at protesters assembled along several points near the fence with Israel.
Ahead of Nakba Day, marking 70 years since the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem, tens of thousands in Gaza were expected to march on the border, culminating 45 days of protests demanding the right of refugees to return, an end to Israel’s siege. Protests were also taking place in the West Bank and Jerusalem, where the United States is opening its new embassy.
(1.4.2018) The killing of Palestinians is accepted in Israel more lightly than the killing of mosquitoes. There’s nothing cheaper in Israel than Palestinian blood. If there were a hundred or even a thousand deaths Israel would still “salute” the IDF.
Israeli soldiers on Monday killed 18 Palestinians demonstrating along the border fence and wounded 918 in the bloodiest day of protests since they began six weeks ago, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.
Thousands of Palestinians gathered on the edges of Gaza as the U.S. embassy opened in Jerusalem, fanning out along the fence in what appeared to be some of the largest demonstrations yet.
The Israel Police is preparing for the U.S. embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem with thousands of policemen deployed through the city. At 4:00 P.M. (Israel Time), the official ceremony will take place at the U.S. Consulate in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem, which will officially become the U.S. embassy this week
Palestinians throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem were urged to turn out en masse to protest the embassy move and take part in Tuesday’s 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or “catastrophe,” as Palestinians term Israel’s creation.
Clashes were reported on Monday, as Palestinians continued to protest at the ‚March of Return‘ demonstrations in the Gaza Strip.
The development brings the death toll of Friday’s protests up to two. A 40-year-old Palestinian was shot to death by Israeli forces and 700 others were wounded by Israeli army gunfire during the demonstrations.
