The Never-Ending Nakba

http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/05/15/the-never-ending-nakba

"...The US Congress praises Netanyahu [Canada too]. Obama congratulates him on forming a new cabinet, and no one comments on the newly appointed racists in his coalition government - one of which said killing mothers of martyrs is justified to prevent 'more little snakes being raised there,' another calling Palestinian 'sub human'.

Aid in the billions of dollars continues to to flow unabated to Israel."

Why Israel Should Not Exist

Israel and the New European Colonialism  -  by Gary Leech

http://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-and-the-new-european-colonialism/

"The root cause of the contemporary conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is the European Zionist movement's creation of the Jewish state in the middle of the Arab world. This Zionist dream only became a reality because of the support of Western imperialist powers including the United States, Britain and Canada.

Given this reality, the Jewish state of Israel should be viewed as both illegitimate and yet another catastrophic consequence of Western imperialism. The only just solution to this entrenched conflict is to finally allow Palestinians to establish the independent state they should have attained following World War II and to allow the return of all refugees..."

"...Meanwhile, the Zionist regime and some of its US lobby are arguing that 'once Obama leaves office next year and a purebred 100% American patriot is in the oval office things can finally be put right in this region and we will knock some heads.

And if anyone is still alive - in the words of wisdom from Alan Dershowitz, 'We can let Allah sort it all out."

China Forbids Its Construction Workers From Building Israeli Settlements

http://rt.com/news/266068-israel-china-builders-settlements/

"Israel's talks on migrant workers from China are deadlocked due to Beijing refusing to allow its citizens to participate in the construction of settlements in the Occupied West Bank, a high-ranking Israeli official told AFP.

Besides China, Israel has agreements with Bulgaria, Muldova and Romania to supply construction workers, while Thailand and Sri Lanka provide the Jewish state with migrant farmhands.

Israel has been under pressure in recent weeks as the Palestinian-led movement BDS has been gaining more and more international support."

Why Are Journalists Surprised that Israel Kills Children?

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article42144.htm

"There was nothing surprising about Israel finding itself not culpable for the killing of four boys on a Gaza beach in July last year, as it did in a military judgment released a few days ago. Israel's investigations into its own crimes aren't known for delivering guilty verdicts.

What was interesting however, was the reaction of some mainstream journalists, who felt they had a vested interest in this case because they had witnessed the strike..."

Palestinian Toddler Burnt to Death in Suspected Jewish 'Price Tag' Attack

He also criticized the international community for its silence.

Gaza Flotilla Activists to Sue Israel at International Criminal Court (ICC)By Mint Press, August 11, 2015

Clearly what is needed is some international legal advice. But can a case be made of Canada´s complicity, by amendment or attachment to the matter? I wonder!

Perhaps someone could be in touch with Kevin Neish on this, one of tjhe activists involved!

It's unfortunate they didn't take advantage of the Canadian presence of an actual participant in the Mavi Marmara affair, Israel's then resident Defence Attache, Eden Attias, who commanded the Israeli airbase involved in both Mavi M and Gaza bombardments. Canada has a legal duty to prosecute a 'reasonably suspected' war criminal, which Attias most certainly was. But apparently nobody  thought it worthwhile, and the suggestion and opportunity was never responded to. Now he's gone.

I doubt very much that the ICC kangaroo-court action will be productive. Expensive too.  There should be focused intense protests against the domestic sources of pro-Israeli support and the targeting of their Canadian political and funding sources. The JDL should be taken off the streets and CIJA with its NDP and CON representatives should be exposed and shut down in the same way that the JDL successfully campaigned to block George Galloway or now intensely lobbies all levels of government to shutter Palestine House as 'terrorist supporters'.

As with other issues, I don't think most Canadians really give a shit. Certainly not enough to actually do anything about it. Despite the valiant few that soldier on nonetheless.

Great,so now they can literally dance on the graves of Palestinians. I wonder if they'll play this while they party.

Ain't that the truth. I think it is both sad and pathetic.We can laugh or we can cry about it..doesn't make much difference I suppose...seeing there is no government (with the exception of maybe Russia, China and Sweden) with the courage to be critical of the hemhorroid state of Israel.

Much respect to the valiant few,indeed.

Rallies in Israel, West Bank Call For Release of Palestinian Hunger Striker in Coma (and vid)

http://www.rt.com/news/312562-west-bank-rallies-hunger-striker/

"Protesters took to the streets in northern Israel and the West Bank to show their support for Mohammed Allan, a Palestinian activist who has fallen into a coma after a two-month hunger strike.

'The conditions in Israeli jails for Palestinians are appalling. Over 5,500 people are in custody in Israel. Over 400 of them, like Allan are in administrative detention without charge or evidence.

'He has no idea why he is in prison because he hasn't been told,' human rights barrister, Mark Macdonald said.

Jeff Halper from the Israeli Committee against Home Demolitions added that no charges have been made and no evidence presented. 'The person who is accused has no way to defend himself. There is no lawyer involved. It is an absolute absence of any due process of law.

That is why hunger strikes are so important. They are the only weapon Palestinians have to resist these illegal detentions."

 

Canadian politicians support Israel. Any one that questions or criticizes is disciplined or dismissed.

Israel's Right Defies Rabbinate Over Al Aqsa

"The Al Aqsa Mosque Compound has beome the focal point of a Settler Movement seeking full control of all Occupied Territory. In 2000 the then Prime Minister did everything in his power to prevent Israeli access to the Al Aqsa Mosque Compound, citing security concerns as well as backing the religious law and authority by the country's chief Rabbinate.

In 2015 the Prime Minister stays silent as members of his government press for complete access, defying the country's supreme religious authority and ignoring or perhaps encouraging devasting consequences throughout the region.

Then one looks closely at the nature of the current government, the most influential force within it are representatives of the settler movement..."

 

Video: Temple Movement Rabbi Proselytizes For Genocide

Ariel went on to suggest that Jewish people should also kill US President Barack Obama. In the 1981 elections, Ariel was number two on the electoral list for Kach, the extremist group led by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane.

Rabbi Yisrael Ariel is head of the Temple Institute which seeks the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque (the third holiest site in Islam) and replace it with a Jewish temple.

According to a May 2013 report published by the Israeli group Ir Amim, the Temple Institute is directly funded by the Israeli government to the tune of hundreds of thousands of shekels annually..."
