Palestinians and desensitization: is it the time for a third intifada?

Palestinian refugees queuing at UNRWA to receive subsidies.

The more I tread through Gaza’s roads, the more I get trapped into a web of complexities. “Do not be too political” I whisper to myself. I try too hard but I fail. Cars, buses, food; all stamped with Hebrew calligraphy. To me, given my Hebraic illiteracy, the stamps represent one thing: a calligraphic occupation.

It is me grappling with a bunch of irritating realities in a city of over-expressive details. Even the few coins I tucked into my pocket this morning are stamped. Israel’s warships continue to dot the sea and there at the far end of my sight lies the untouchable: my mother’s ethnically cleansed home of origin, Almajdal (Ashkelon nowadays).  Ashkelon is a glowing Israeli city that is close enough for the people of Gaza to see, yet, never to reach. When it comes to us, the inferior demographic bomb, Ashkelon is nothing better than a kill-on-the-spot zone.

I was fourteen years old when Israel “disengaged” from Gaza in 2005.  At the time, I was too naïve to fathom the reasons behind and consequences of such political move. Years later, I would conclude that it only helped desensitize us to the occupation by reducing the level of direct physical interaction between us, the people of Gaza, and Israel’s facts on the ground. The people of the West Bank, on another hand, paid the price; house demolitions soared and new settlements were built up to redeploy thousands of rooted-up settlers.

UNRWA

International agencies, especially those concerned with the refugees such as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), are, deliberately or not, helping keep us from being in flagrant touch with the injustices of Israel’s occupation. The majority of Gaza’s refugees depend on the UNRWA for subsidies, work, even medical treatment and schooling for their children.

A year ago, during the Gaza-based Israeli Apartheid Week, we hosted a Palestinian refugee known as Hajj Abu Hezaima.  Hajj Abu Hezaima witnessed the ethnic cleansing of his village, Zarnouga in 1948. Tears rolled down the old man’s face as he told us his story. Like many refugees, the Hajj had worked at the UNRWA for several years, and in the end, he made an important remark: “The refugee problem could be solved; but the UNRWA is cementing it.”

The UNRWA, just like any other UN-controlled agency, is dominated by Israel’s most powerful ally: the US. More than a year ago, when John Ging was still in charge of theUNRWA, he told me that in order achieve a lasting peace with Israel, we must opt for and fully support a solution based on diving Palestine into two states. When I asked him about the fate of refugees, he said that we must “sacrifice” in order to achieve peace.

Now, close your eyes and imagine Gaza, without the UNRWA.

Palestinian refugees, whether inside Palestine or in the Diaspora, constitute the vast majority of the Palestinian population everywhere. Those who continue to live in refugee camps in Lebanon, Syria or elsewhere are those who suffer the most due to the harsh conditions under which they are forced to live. Now if the UNRWA and UNRWA-like agencies disappeared, the majority of the Palestinian population, the refugees, will lose the last straw. They will suddenly be exposed to the untamed brutality of Israel’s Aryan-akin practices. With no subsidies, clothing or appropriate schooling to speak of, Palestinian refugees everywhere will flood the streets realizing that the time has come for the long-awaited return.  A third intifada?

Everyone is doomed

But everyone in the Palestinian society seems to be doomed.  The non-refugees are highly dependent on foreign aid and the fate of their families is hanging at the PA’s “appropriate” handling of what Israel deems as its “security.”

Now that Saeb Erekat is back to the table, he, once again, is placing us in a falsified context where the oppressor and the oppressed project themselves as equal parts. This settlement-expansion process i.e. peace process, is further expanding the gap between the Palestinians and their leadership.

Ma’an News Agency presented a poll on its website wherein 68.7% regarded the current Amman negotiations as “pointless” with only 20.3% regarding them as “a positive step toward peace.” Eleven percent voted for “harmful to national reconciliation efforts.”

Negotiations have more than once proved to be useless. In fact, they proved to be damaging to the very essence of the Palestinian popular struggle i.e. the Right of Return.

A third intifada

I was born to a Gazan father and a refugee mother who has never experienced life in refugee camps. My grandfather was a lucky man; when Zionist gangs expelled him from Ashkelon, he took everything he needed to start a life in Gaza without being convicted to any of the thousands of UN-distributed tents. I have always been ashamed of myself finding it embarrassing not to have been raised in a refugee camp, or, at least, of not having a touching story to share and write about.

There in the folds of three-room shacks, in the eyes of barefoot kids weaving through stench-smelling alleyways, in the angry melodies of the first and second intifada, lies, in utter anguish, the third intifada.

In every non-refugee house, deprived of representation, constantly looked at as the “spoilt” who sacrifices “the least” shrieks the bitterness caused by a life of uncertainties.

People everywhere are born to be free. Enslavement is not only illegal because it causes human miseries, but because it essentially opposes the sound human nature that views fellow human beings as brothers and sisters not as slaves or second-class citizens. Unfortunately, Israel is singling itself out of this category.

Since the 1993 Oslo Accords, more Palestinian land has been expropriated and the Nakba never ceased. The Palestinian leadership, whether in Gaza or the West Bank, proved to be politically disabled; a broken record at best. Israel’s Apartheid is breaking new grounds passing new racist laws every day. World leaders are becoming more biased than they have ever been turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the atrocities committed against the Palestinian people on a daily basis. Isn’t it the time for a popular Palestinian revolution in the form of a third intifada?

EU diplomats propose boycotts, divestment, and sanctions against Israeli colonialism

A report sent to the European Union on Monday by its member countries’ top diplomats in Jerusalem and Ramallah proposes state-level boycotts, divestment, and sanctions against Israel’s illegal colonial infrastructure in the occupied West Bank. These recommendations, unprecedented among Western nations, herald a breakthrough for the growing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Like most efforts opposing only the West Bank settlements, they appear somewhat myopic about the state policies of ethnic cleansing and apartheid that stand squarely behind settlers’ walls and guns, while also denying refugees their homes and Palestinian citizens of Israel equality under its laws. But high-level backing for even modest steps can afford many new opportunities. The Independent reports:

The European Commission should consider passing legislation to prevent finance generated within its member states being used to support illegal Israeli settlements in occupied territory, the bloc’s top diplomats in Jerusalem and Ramallah have advised …

The finance recommendation has been worded with deliberate vagueness to maintain a consensus among sharply differing views within the EU. But the clear implication is that some of the European Consuls General – ambassador-rank representatives to the Palestinians – want the Commission to consider for the first time whether it has an obligation to legislate on the grounds that the settlements contravene international law.

Under one interpretation of the proposal, the Commission would use legislation to force companies in Europe to break their links with businesses involved in settlement construction and commercial activities. This follows some high-profile voluntary examples like that of Deutsche Bahn, which last year pulled out of electrification of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem rail link because it cut through the West Bank.

The Guardian says that the document

calls on the European commission to consider legislation “to prevent/discourage financial transactions in support of settlement activity”.

Legislation should prohibit trade and business with settlements based on their illegality under international law, rather than a politically-driven boycott, said one EU diplomatic source.

And Ynet panics:

The recommendations include the preparation of a “blacklist” of settlers considered violent, in order to later mull the option of banning them from entering the European Union. The document also seeks to encourage more PLO activity and representation in east Jerusalem.

Moreover, the European report advises senior EU figures visiting east Jerusalem to refrain from being escorted by official Israeli representatives or security personnel.

A Western diplomat told Ynet that the Europeans are well aware of the implications of the latest recommendations.

Talk is cheap, of course. But careful organizing and determined action by Palestinians and solidarity activists could make the next steps quicker and more comprehensive. Whatever we think of the two-state “solution” these proposals aim to bolster, they offer us a valuable new arsenal in the struggle against Israeli apartheid.

And speaking of a two-state resolution to Israel’s 63-year occupation of Palestinian land, and ongoing displacement and subjugation of its indigenous people, it appears that these same diplomats, many of whom have spent their lives pursuing it, are nearing despair as its infeasibility becomes undeniable. In an article provocatively entitled “EU on verge of abandoning hope for a viable Palestinian state,” The Independent says:

The Palestinian presence in the largest part of the occupied West Bank – has been, “continuously undermined” by Israel in ways that are “closing the window” on a two-state solution, according to an internal EU report seen by The Independent …

With the number of Jewish settlers now at more than double the shrinking Palestinian population in the largely rural area, the report warns bluntly that, “if current trends are not stopped and reversed, the establishment of a viable Palestinian state within pre-1967 borders seem more remote than ever” …

The 16-page document is the EU’s starkest critique yet of how a combination of house and farm building demolitions; a prohibitive planning regime; relentless settlement expansion; the military’s separation barrier; obstacles to free movement; and denial of access to vital natural resources, including land and water, is eroding Palestinian tenure of the large tract of the West Bank on which hopes of a contiguous Palestinian state depend …

Area C is one of three zones allocated by the 1993 Oslo agreement. Area A includes major Palestinian cities, and is under the control of the Palestinian Authority. Area B is under shared Israeli-Palestinian control.

Although Area C is the least populous, the report says “the window for a two-state solution is rapidly closing with the continued expansion of Israeli settlements and access restrictions for Palestinians in Area C [which] compromises crucial natural resources and land for the future demographic and economic growth of a viable Palestinian state”.

It says the EU needs “at a political” level to persuade Israel to redesignate Area C, but in the meantime it should “support Palestinian presence in, and development of the area”. The report says the destruction of homes, public buildings and workplaces result in “forced transfer of the native population” and that construction is effectively prohibited in 70 per cent of the land – and then in zones largely allocated to settlements of the Israeli military.

While predictably mincing words, the diplomats’ statements coincide with King Abdullah of Jordan, Israel’s last ally in the region, dropping the a-bomb to The Washington Post:

If we haven’t crossed that line, we’ll cross the line sooner or later where the two-state solution is no longer possible, at which point the only solution is the one-state solution. And then, are we talking about apartheid or democracy?

The French parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee also accused Israel of using water as “a weapon serving the new apartheid” two weeks ago. And all of this comes shortly after Israel’s public condemnation by every bloc of the United Nations Security Council – with the predictable exception of the United States – in December.

As the one-state reality seeps into the world’s consciousness, we can expect increasing numbers of Israel’s current allies to slowly inch – or, perhaps, quickly run – away from it. These developments offer a moment of opportunity, for Palestinians and all supporters of human equality. What can we do but try to make use of it?

Two Palestinian Children Injured by Israeli Explosive Remnant

HEBRON, January 20, 2012 (WAFA) – The volunteers of Operation Dove in At-Tuwani were informed of the injury of two children in the village of Jinba, in the South Hebron Hills, due to the explosion of an Israeli remnant bomb, Friday said a press release by Operation Dove.

Luai Khalil Rabai, 11 years old, and Islam Ahmed Rabai, 13 years old, were injured by an unexploded device, while grazing their flocks in the Palestinian-owned land near Jinba.

An Israeli military helicopter transported the two injured children in the hospital of Soroka in Beer Sheva.

The two children will have to undergo a surgery at the legs and doctors have said that are not life threatening. At the moment there is no other news about the health of both the children.

The Palestinian village of Jinba is situated 5 kilometers from the Green Line. It is located in the proximity of the Israeli military base of this area. Since the 70s a large portion of the area around the village is used by the Israeli army for military training and it is called ‘Firing Area 918’.

Operation Dove has maintained an international presence in At-Tuwani and South Hebron Hills since 2004.

“Terrorist” en schoenen waren zijn deel

Nadat hij op woensdagavond werd uitgefloten en weggehoond bij het bezoek aan de Portugese synagoge, werd donderdagmiddag 19 januari de Israëlische premier Benjamin Netanyahu bij het bezoek aan de Tweede Kamer wederom ontvangen door een ontvangstcomité. Mensen van verschillende organisaties, comité, groepen en individuele mensen bijeengeroepen via Facebook hebben de regen getrotseerd om aan te geven hoe ze dachten over de komst van de premier naar Nederland. Met woorden als “Netanyahu terrorist”, “Israël terrorist”, “Free, free, Palestine”,  “De muur moet neer” en liederen om aan te geven hoe het zit met de illegale bezetting van Palestina. Tevens werd er verzocht om Netanyahu voor het Internationaal Strafhof te brengen wegens misdaden tegen de menselijkheid.

Foto @ Stop de Bezetting

De demonstranten hebben tijdens de demonstratie de premier van Israël niet kunnen zien of iets van enige andere Nederlandse politicus kunnen horen, alleen dat de heer Job Cohen het gebouw mogelijk aan de verkeerde kant verliet, de demonstranten minderwaardig aankeek en snel het podium verliet.

Foto @ Stop de Bezetting

Met Palestijnse vlaggen, spandoeken en schoenen hebben zo’n 60 a 75 bijna 2 uur gescandeerd dat Israël zich moet terugtrekken uit de bezette Palestijnse gebieden, dat Palestina vrij moet komen en dat beleid van Israël compleet om moet, als ze echt vrede wil. Te horen viel dat er een grote manifestatie georganiseerd moet gaan worden, zoals de grote vredesdemonstraties van de vorige eeuw, om aan te geven dat er mensen in Nederland zijn die zich achter Palestina hebben gesteld, ondanks de fijne intieme betrekkingen die het parlement voorstaat.

Thailand erkent Palestijnse staat

Palestijns president Mahmoud Abbas dient het verzoek in voor het Palestijnse lidmaatschap van de Verenigde Naties.

Thailand erkent een onafhankelijke Palestijnse staat. De woordvoerder van het ministerie van Buitenlandse zaken in Thailand heeft dit vandaag bekend gemaakt tijdens een bijeenkomst van de Verenigde Naties in New York.

De erkenning steunt indirect het verzoek van Palestijns president Mahmoud Abbasm, die op 23 september 2011 het verzoek indiende voor het Palestijnse lidmaatschap van de Verenigde Naties. Washington is tegen deze stap omdat het vindt dat eerst een politieke regeling met Israël moet worden getroffen.

Thailand heeft vriendschappelijke betrekkingen met Israël en is een trekpleister voor Israëlische toeristen.

Duisenberg voorop in anti-Israël mars

Duisenberg voorop in anti-Israël mars

Gretta Duisenberg gaat een ’Wereldwijde mars naar Jeruzalem’ leiden. De weduwe van Wim Duisenberg, oud-president van de Europese Centrale Bank, is een van de Europese leiders achter de protestmars, die vanaf 30 maart plaats moet hebben.

Onder de organisatoren zijn beruchte Britse hardliners uit de Moslimbroederschapbeweging, zoals Zaher Birawi, en geharnaste leiders van de verboden terreurorganisatie Hamas.

Duisenberg was nadrukkelijk aanwezig bij een tweedaagse voorbereidingsconferentie begin deze week in de Libanese hoofdstad Beiroet voor de ’Global March to Jerusalem’. De organisatie noemt de ’bezetting van Jeruzalem’ door Israël een ’racistische daad’, een ’misdaad tegen de menselijkheid’ en ’een daad van etnische zuivering’.

Vanuit Caïro, Amman, Beiroet en Damascus zullen mensenmassa’s optrekken richting Jeruzalem, zo hopen de organisatoren.

De organisatie zegt vreedzame protestplannen te hebben, maar gevreesd wordt voor bloedvergieten.

  62. And while the world is wide asleep or looking “foreward” to more “talks” Israel unrelentless continues what is has been doing for 64 years: Annexation, eradication, making entire towns and villages disappear from the face of the very earth.Every red dot on this map was an ethnic cleansed Palestinian town.

  64. Removing people with force, great violence like in the previous bedouin video. But also ethnic cleansing inside “Israel” or like we prefer to call Palestine 1948: Witness appalling violence against a family in Jaffa where officers even beat up a man holding a little child in his arms: Meet the real “Israel”

  68. I cannot emphasize enough “Israel” is not intended to have no serious effort at all for talks. The ultimate evidence of this might be in the fact it is even prepared to kill its own soldiers to avoid any negotiation possible in the first place!The Hannibal Policy is out of the closet again. Nothing is undone, not even the assassination of it’s own troops if this will avoid negotiations with Palestine.

  69. Israel to kill its soldiers instead of saving them

  71. The Images

    The Attacks The Martyred The Funerals The Destruction The Children The Wounded The 1st Attacks The Atrocities
  72. An assault for 1 captive soldier, in the meanwhile released on the same terms as were offered by Palestinian resistance before the massacre itself. So we can state these 1500 lives, and destroyed lives of over 5000 other wounded and handicapped, as well as the ongoing misery of 1,7 million people every single day of their lives in a still destroyed Gaza open air concentrationcamp… just because Israel refuses to talk and a war for Israel is just a conventient distraction from the increasing rapid settlement construction and annexation of the west bank. No one looking there if something like displayed in the previous albums is going on!While.. the facts are
    21 Israeli died of Gaza’s rockets, and Palestine under International Law has a right of self-defense. These are no myths or fairytales but International Law. Which does not justify the deaths on no side at all. However the disbalance and force opposed on Palestine, highly out of balance due to distortion of facts by the Israeli propaganda machine.What is deadlier than Palestinians?
    The main reason for deaths in Israeli Army are suicides. Not Palestinians.

  74. So parents of the soldiers. Don’t worry too much about Palestinians locked up in Gaza or West Bank. If i had a child in the army  I would worry about my own government, inducing the highest suicide rate in the first place, second, it will slain my child if there is by any chance a capture in sight which could be undertaken to come to negotiations!
