Palestinian president plans to sue Britain over 1917 Balfour Declaration and support for ‘Israeli crimes’
Mahmoud Abbas’ statement, delivered in his absence by foreign minister Riyad al-Maliki, was given at the opening of this week’s Arab League summit in Mauritania.
It called on other states in the alliance to help the Palestinian government launch a lawsuit against the UK over the Balfour Declaration and the subsequent creation of Israel in 1948.
Jewish Man Exposes Israel’s Lies

The General’s Son. Miko Peled is a peace activist who dares to say in public what others still choose to deny. Born in Jerusalem in 1961 into a well known Zionist family, his grandfather, Dr. Avraham Katsnelson was a Zionist leader and signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence. His Father, Matti Peled, was a young officer in the war of 1948 and a general in the war of 1967 when Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and Sinai.
Miko’s unlikely opinions reflect his father’s legacy. General Peled was a war hero turned peacemaker.
Miko grew up in Jerusalem, a multi-ethnic city, but had to leave Israel before he made his first Palestinian friend, the result of his participation in a dialogue group in California. He was 39.
On September 4, 1997 the beloved Smadar, 13, the daughter of Miko’s sister Nurit and her husband Rami Elhanan was killed in a suicide attack.
Peled insists that Israel/Palestine is one state—the separation wall notwithstanding, massive investment in infrastructure, towns and highways that bisect and connect settlements on the West Bank, have destroyed the possibility for a viable Palestinian state. The result, Peled says is that Israelis and Palestinians are governed by the same government but live under different sets of laws.
At the heart of Peled’s conclusion lies the realization that Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace as equals in their shared homeland. All rights-Alternate Focus under educational learning aid.
I got this response from a Palestinian Hisham living in Germany on why he can’t support the petition for a Palestinian State.
Please excuse if I refuse to sign the petition, because I don’t support the idea of 2 states for 2 nations, or a Palestinian state (because it will be a joke) on less that 18% of historical Palestine. I think the only solution is a democratic state for both nations.
Please understand my point of view!
I am a positive thinker and I want to believe that a 2 state solution can be a reality but sometimes fact on the ground tells us a different story – http://www.asa.org.uk/ASA-action/Adjudications/2012/3/Israeli-Government-Tourist-Office/SHP_ADJ_179845.aspx
A national press ad, for a book on Northern Israel and tourism in the region, viewed in November 2011, was headed “IN THE BEGINNING”. The ad covered three pages. The first page showed an image of the book and the Israel Ministry of Tourism logo. The following double page spread was headed “WELCOME TO NORTHERN ISRAEL,” and included a map and text describing the history and attractions of Northern Israel. The map showed the northern section of land highlighted in green and a dotted line around the Golan Heights area, labelled “GOLAN”. The remainder of the land on the map was grey and there were dotted lines around the Gaza Strip, labelled “GAZA”, and West Bank areas. The northern and southern parts of the West Bank were labelled “SAMARIA,” and “JUDEA,” respectively. Further text on the second page of the ad stated “Prehistoric skeletons found in the Galilee show that in this place, man developed the ability to speak.”
The Zionist Jews are living the legacy of their founder Ben Gurion or making sure his legacy become a reality. But this is a new world, thus their founder Ben-Gurion legacy is not right for this world and in fact it is dividing our world and if we do not addressed it our world will be torn apart beyond repair. Therefore, to start anew the Jewish people got to leave their founder legacy behind and most Jewish people are ready to do so but unfortunately the Zionist Jews are adamant to keep his legacy alive and that is to drive the Palestinians out of Palestine. Since the occupation of Jerusalem, Israeli authorities have revoked the residency rights of 14,561 Palestinians. Jerusalem’s Mayor has declared that Palestinians living outside of the wall will be transferred to the West Bank civil administration resulting in a further 70,000 individuals being effectively barred from the city. Meanwhile, Israel is planning to demolish homes in Silwan neighbourhood – evicting over 1,000 Palestinian residents – the biggest mass demolition planned since 1967.
If America and the world still refuse to accept this fact then we will be taking a merry go round maybe for another 60 years and by then the whole of Palestine will be known as Israel. The never ending suffering of the Palestinians will continue and their people will live in total misery and despair! Do the world want that to happen to A PEOPLE WHO HAD DONE NO WRONG TO THE JEWS!
How can the world just watches and allows the Netanyahu government to carry out all the inhumane act to the Palestinian people in broad daylight? I will share with you a short paragraph on why Israel attacked Gaza from PalestineChronicle.com
“The Palestinians were mentioned in a different context, and repeatedly so. Ephraim Kam, for example, expected that thousands of rockets would rain on Israel from Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran itself. The Associated Press quoted Vice Prime Minister Dan Meridor as saying, “The whole of Israel (is vulnerable to) tens of thousands of missiles and rockets from neighboring countries. If there is a war […] they are not just going to hit Israeli soldiers. The main aim is at civilian populations” (Feb 20).
Per this logic, the only way to prevent rockets from reaching Israel is by attacking Iran. An independent Israeli commentator, Yossi Melman predicted that a weakened Iran “would undoubtedly have an impact on Hamas and Hezbollah” (CNN, March 9).”

Why the Israel-Palestine conflict persists, and what we can do to achieve peace.

Last Saturday, July 9, marked the anniversary of the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ’s) advisory opinion, issued at the request of the UN General Assembly, on the legality of Israel’s separation wall in the occupied West Bank.
The ICJ affirmed that the wall and Israel’s settlements violate international law. The ICJ’s ruling helps to underscore the prejudicial nature of the discussion about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Western mainstream media—and particularly in the US.
The media never fail to elevate Israel’s policy aims to the same level of legitimacy as international law.
For example, we can frequently read in the New York Times, the Washington Post, et al, that East Jerusalem or areas where Israeli settlements are located are “disputed” territory—thus placing equal weight to Israel’s position as the entire rest of the planet, which recognizes Israel’s settlements as illegal and East Jerusalem as occupied Palestinian territory.
I wrote an article to mark the occasion that assesses why the conflict persists and what needs to happen for peace to be achieved. Check it out!

Analysis: Why Israel attacked Gaza
Published Thursday 15/03/2012 (updated) 15/03/2012 19:44
By Ramzy Baroud
The first Israeli missile sped down to its target, scorching the Gaza earth and everything in between. Palestinians collected the body parts of two new martyrs, while Israeli media celebrated the demise of two terrorists.
Zuhair Qasis was the head of the Popular Resistance Committee. He was killed alongside a Palestinian prisoner from Nablus, who had recently been freed and deported to Gaza.Then, another set of missiles rained down, this time taking Obeid al-Ghirbali and Muhammad Harara.Then, a third, and a forth, and so on. The death count began on March 9 and escalated through the day. The Hamas government urged the international community to take action. Factions vowed to retaliate.In these situations, Western media is usually clueless or complicit. Sometimes it’s both. The Israeli army was cited readily by many media outlets without challenge.The first round of attacks was justified based on a claim that Qasis was involved in the planning of an attack that killed seven Israelis last year. The Israel army didn’t even bother to upgrade that claim – which already resulted in the killing and wounding of many Palestinians.Even Israeli media had drawn the conclusion that the attack then originated from Egypt, and no Palestinian was involved.Al Jazeera reported that some of the victims were decapitated, a familiar scene in most of Israel’s unforgiving atrocities.
Expectantly, Palestinians fired back. “The national resistance brigades, the DFLP’s armed wing, the Al-Aqsa brigades, and the armed wing of the PRC, the An-Nasser Salah Ad-Din brigades, have all claimed responsibility for rocket fire,” reported Ma’an news agency.
The incessant Israeli provocations would not have been enough to end the months-long truce. Palestinians know that Israeli provocations are often, if not always, politically motivated. This time however, the people killed were leaders in al-Muqawama, the local resistance parties. Neither Hamas’ might nor diplomacy could persuade Gaza’s many factions to hold their fire. Israel knows this fact more than any other party. This is why it sent such unmistakably bloody messages.
Israel needed Palestinians to respond, and urgently so. But why did Israel decide to ignite trouble again?
To answer the question, one needs to make a quick stop in Washington. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had recently tried to articulate a case for war against Iran there. Unlike the successful effort to isolate and strike and invade Iraq in 2003, the Iran war campaign is not going according to plan.
The Israelis are desperate to see Iran’s nuclear facilities bombed by American bunker buster bombs – some of which weigh up to 13,600 kilograms. Israel’s former head of military intelligence, Amos Yadlin, assured the “free world” — a term often manipulated by Netanyahu — that a bombing campaign can succeed if it’s followed by the right measures. “Iran, like Iraq and Syria before it, will have to recognize that the precedent for military action has been set, and can be repeated,” he wrote (as cited in CNN, March 9).
There is growing consensus in Israel that “something has to be done” – at least to set back Iran’s uranium enrichment by few years, per the assurances of deputy director of the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies, Ephraim Kam. Republican candidates in the US, and even President Obama himself, agree. But Obama, despite his groveling at the recent AIPAC conference, dared to question the timing and the way in which Iran must be brought to its knees.
The US president is becoming increasingly isolated within Washington because of his stance on Iran.
It is election year, and Israel knows that a window of opportunity will not be open for long. “Netanyahu won a crucial battle in Washington this past week. No one brought up the Palestinians. Netanyahu has quite masterfully shifted the conversation to the subject of Iran,” wrote Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic (March 9). He is right, of course, but only within the context of “peace process” and conflict resolution.
The Palestinians were mentioned in a different context, and repeatedly so. Ephraim Kam, for example, expected that thousands of rockets would rain on Israel from Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran itself. The Associated Press quoted Vice Prime Minister Dan Meridor as saying, “The whole of Israel (is vulnerable to) tens of thousands of missiles and rockets from neighboring countries. If there is a war […] they are not just going to hit Israeli soldiers. The main aim is at civilian populations” (Feb 20).
Per this logic, the only way to prevent rockets from reaching Israel is by attacking Iran. An independent Israeli commentator, Yossi Melman predicted that a weakened Iran “would undoubtedly have an impact on Hamas and Hezbollah” (CNN, March 9).
Yes, the Palestinians were infused plenty in Israeli war rhetoric. They were liberally presented as the jackals who would pounce on vulnerable Israel. Who would dare challenge this tired victimization narrative? Who would have the audacity to point out the fact that Israel has the region’s strongest army, equipped with hundreds of fully-functioning nuclear heads, while Palestinians fighters — who had until recently respected the truce, although Gaza’s siege was never lifted — are armed with light weapons?
No one in the mainstream media, of course. But then, as the supposed threat has reached an all time high, Hamas spokesperson in Gaza, Fawzi Barhoum told AP: “Hamas weapons and the weapons of the Palestinian resistance, in general, are humble weapons that aim to defend and not to attack, and they are to defend the Palestinian people […] that does not give us the ability to be part of any regional war.”
Hamas has its own calculations independent of Israel’s war momentum. But losing Hamas would jeopardize the very equation Israel has been constructing for years. The “radical camp” must remain intact, as far as Israel is concerned. No political polarization caused by the so-called Arab Spring will be allowed to endanger the Israeli narrative: the radicals, the evil alliance, the threat facing the “free world” and all the rest. Great resources were spent on spinning the perfect story to justify a preemptive war.
Then, on March 9, less than two days after Barhoum made his comments of “humble weapons,” heads began to roll in Gaza. Literally. And the media machine resumed its work unabashed. “Gaza rockets fire disrupts life in Israeli south,” read a headline in Israel’s Haaretz. “IDF strikes Gaza terror targets following rocket barrage,” declared another in The Jerusalem Post. It’s war all over again. Israeli civilians run to shelters. Sirens blare. US media reports the fate of “besieged” Israelis and Palestinian “terrorists.”
It matters little to them that it was Israel itself that stirred the trouble, broke the truce, and fanned the flames.
