he list of Peres’ crimes is too long, but what is mentioned here is enough to tell the Brazilian that they committed a mistake when they believed that Peres was a man of peace

Copacabana Square in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was renamed after late Israeli war criminal Shimon Peres during a ceremony in the seaside city on Friday. 

Rio de Janeiro Mayor Marcelo Crivella and heads of the local Jewish community in Brazil attended the ceremony, which honoured one of the most savage bloodsuckers in the world.

The move was initiated by Israel’s honorary consul in Rio de Janeiro, Osias Wurman, and city councilman Marcelo Arar.

In his remarks, Crivella claimed that Peres was a world leader who never betrayed his principles or his love for peace. According to Crivella, “Residents of Rio were inspired by him. At the age of 93 he still carried the same flag.”

However, the fact is that Peres was a member of the Zionist Jewish gang of Haganah, which among other extremist and savage Jewish groups, carried out savage massacres before, during and after 1948 against the Palestinians.

He later on became an MK and then served in 12 Israeli governments along his political life. Then, he served as Israel’s president for seven years until 2014.

In 1996, he ordered shelling Lebanese refugees taking refuge in a UN compound and killed at least 106 civilians and wounded hundreds others including children and women.

The list of Peres’ crimes is too long, but what is mentioned here is enough to tell the Brazilian that they committed a mistake when they believed that Peres was a man of peace.

Tunisia Cracks Down on Suspicious Charity Group Activities


Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed

Tunis – The Tunisian authorities have given all charity organizations in the country a month to submit a statement on the foreign donations and grants that they receive.

The Tunisian government of Prime Minister Yousef Chahed is seeking through this measure to crack down on the suspicious activities of several of these groups.

It will also resort to the central bank and finance ministry to inspect the financial accounts of the organizations. The Interior Ministry has meanwhile been tasked with monitoring any suspicious acts, especially in regards to funding terrorism.

The organizations are obligated to submit their data to the government before the July 10 deadline.

The Tunisian government decision is taking place simultaneously with a campaign it is waging against businessmen and smugglers who had been accused of corruption.

The government estimates that around 20,000 charities operate in the country. Seventy percent of them were formed after 2011. In 2014, only 200 organizations disclosed the sources of their financing.

The government for its part only grants minimal funding for these groups.

Prisoners complain of serious health problems following hunger strike

Pal prisoners health

The Palestinian Commission for Detainees’ and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs has revealed that many prisoners have suffered serious physical and mental health symptoms as a result of their participation in the recent prolonged hunger strike and their exposure to punitive measures and maltreatment at the hands of Israeli jailers.

According to the commission, one of those prisoners, for examples, has suffered severe psychological problems, including serious hallucinations and insomnia.

In a statement, head of the commission Issa Qaraqea held the Israeli government and its prison service fully responsible for the serious health conditions that have afflicted hundreds of prisoners who went on hunger strike for 41 days recently to demand basic rights.

Qaraqea affirmed that the prisoners had been exposed, during their hunger strike, to brutal suppressive measures, which worsened their health suffering considerably.

The Palestinian official appealed to the Red Cross to delegate doctors to visit those prisoners and provide them with medical tests and assistance, especially since many of them are believed to have suffered brain damage.

Israel approves stealing Palestinian prisoners’ salaries

Israel considers all Palestinian resistance groups as terrorists organisations and their members are terrorists

Israeli cabinet approved on Sunday bill proposal to deduct salaries of Palestinian prisoners, freed prisoners from PA’s deposits.

Stern claimed that the salaries paid to the former prisoners or the families of current prisoners are rewards for people who murder Jews

Israeli cabinet approved on Sunday bill proposal to deduct salaries of Palestinian prisoners, freed prisoners from PA’s deposits.

The bill was proposed by the Israeli MK Elazar Stern from Yesh Atid and signed by the Likud MKs David Bitan and Avi Dichter.

After discussing it, the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved bill, which stipulates deducting the salaries from the monthly transfer of tax money Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinians.

Israeli occupation considers all the Palestinians, who do not believe in Israel’s right to occupy the land of Palestine and seeking the return of the Palestinians refugees to their homes, as terrorists. Based on this criterion, all the Palestinian prisoners are “terrorists.”

Stern claimed that the salaries paid to the former prisoners or the families of current prisoners are rewards for people who murder Jews.

“The current reality is that the Palestinian Authority not only rewards the murder of Jews, but also encourages it,” Stern said. “The more you murder, the more you get,” he claimed.

“For the Palestinians, it incites them to murder and for us it is an obstacle to peace because how can we make peace with someone who encourages murder? I am convinced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the committee headed by minister Shaked will support the legislation,” he said.

He added: “Netanyahu has commented on the issue more than once and he understands that this absurdity cannot continue.”

Netanyahu incites US to dismantle UNRWA

Leader of regime in Tel Aviv

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Sunday that he had told US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley that the UN should consider shutting down operations of its Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu claimed that “in various UNRWA institutions there is a lot of incitement against Israel, and therefore the existence of UNRWA – and unfortunately its work from time to time – perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem rather than solve it.”

“Therefore, the time has come to dismantle UNRWA and merge its components with the [UN] High Commissioner for Refugees,” the premier added.

UNRWA, among other UN bodies, have been the subject of considerable pressure by Israel in recent months. On Friday, Israel called on the UN to “strongly and unequivocally condemn Hamas” and formally classify the group a “terrorist organization”.

Established by the UN General Assembly in 1949, the agency exists expressly to provide aid to “Palestinian Refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.”

The attacks are part of constant Israeli violations against the Palestinians in the improvised coastal region.

On Friday, June 9 2017, the soldiers killed one Palestinian, identified as Aa’ed Khamis Jom’a, 35, and injured at ten others, after the army attacked dozens of protesters, in Palestinian lands, near the border fence east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
