'Resistance is not terrorism': Palestinians burn effigies of Trump in Gaza

 
 
 
May 23, 2017 3:40 P.M. (Updated: May 23, 2017 11:04 P.M.)
 
 
 
 
 
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinians in the Gaza Strip continued to express outrage over US President Donald Trump calling out the Hamas movement -- Gaza’s de facto leading party -- in a list of terrorist organizations during a speech in Riyadh on Saturday before 50 leaders of Arab and Muslim-majority countries.

Palestinians in Gaza from across the political spectrum united in denouncing the remarks, which have been interpreted as a blanket condemnation of all forms of Palestinian resistance.

 

"No description of the suffering and depravity can begin to capture its full measure. The true toll of ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, and so many others, must be counted not only in the number of dead. It must also be counted in generations of vanished dreams," Trump said, in his first speech delivered abroad since taking office.

Shortly after the speech was broadcast, Hamas reacted by accusing Trump of "complete bias" toward the policies of the Israeli occupation by designating the movement as a terrorist organization.

The designation “denies the Palestinian people's legitimate right to resistance to liberate their land and holy places,” Hamas, which identifies as a Islamist national resistance movement, said.

Hamas denounced Trump’s message at the summit in Saudi Arabia -- which focused heavily on what he called “the crisis of Islamist extremism” -- for attempting to divide the Muslim world, as Trump meanwhile “ignores the Zionist crimes of killing children and women and demolishing the roofs over their heads.”

Israeli officials have routinely claimed that Palestinian armed resistance is part of an international rise in Islamist extremism, while many Palestinians have instead pointed chiefly to the frustration and despair brought on by Israel's decades-long military occupation of the Palestinian territory and the absence of a political horizon.

The Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees organized a rally in Rafah city in the southern besieged coastal enclave Monday evening protesting Trump’s remarks.

Dozens of supporters crowded at Shuhada Square in the center of the city and torched US flags, as well as photos and an effigy of Donald Trump.

"Palestinian resistance is a source of pride for the nation fighting its enemy and occupier and trying to liberate its country," leader of the Popular Resistance Committees Abu Fares al-Shamali said.

Trump's remarks, al-Shamali added, were blindly throwing US support behind the interests of Israeli occupation, "which is the true source of terrorism and violence in the region and in the world," he said.

 
 
 
 

 

On Tuesday, anti-Trump protests raged on in the small Palestinian territory.

Hundreds of supporters of the leftist and secular Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) rallied in Gaza City to protest Trump’s remarks made in Riyadh, demonstrating that the comments were being interpreted as offensive to Palestinian resistance movements at large, irrespective of political or religious affiliation.

Demonstrators waving Palestinian flags, PFLP flags, as well as Hezbollah and Iranian flags rallied from Palestine Square to the prisoners' solidarity sit-in tent at Saraya Square, chanting against US policies in the region.

Two masked PFLP gunmen aimed their guns at an effigy of Trump tied up in ropes in Saraya Square, behind a banner that simply stated: “Resistance is not terrorism.”

Member of the PFLP's politburo Kayid al-Ghoul told Ma'an that the rally reflected the group's support for the demands of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners and firm solidarity with their plight, as well as opposition to Trump’s policies, which he said were “predictably in support of Israel’s conditions for the so-called peace process.”

Al-Ghoul said that, "today, we are sending a message that the Palestinian people refuse to give up any of our rights, and refuse to go back to US-sponsored negotiations."

 

 
 
 

 

The Islamic Jihad movement also organized a rally in central Gaza City condemning "Trump's statements against resistance factions," with the group stressing that they completely rejected the US president's characterization of Hamas as a terrorist organization, raising a banner that said: “Our dignity is our most valuable possession. Trump, resistance is not terrorism -- we will triumph and you will leave.”

Member of the Islamic Jihad's politburo Muhammad al-Hindi said that “Palestinian resistance factions are holding on to Palestinian rights stronger than ever, despite all the conspiracies being planned against the Palestinian cause.”

Al-Hindi said that “Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia and his description of the resistance as terrorism, in front of all of the Arab and Islamic world leaders, is a reflection of the ongoing deterioration in the region," referring to a growing alliance between heads of state in the region, the United States, and Israel at the expense of the Palestinian cause.

Al-Hindi denounced the leaders -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas among them -- for their silence to Trump's message, particularly as the US president famously hinged his presidential campaign on inflammatory, anti-Muslim rhetoric.

 
 
Ahead of Trump's visit to Riyadh -- which was marked by the US signing a $110 billion weapons deal with the Saudi regime -- Middle East and North Africa Director at Amnesty International Philip Luther said that the "potential for President Trump to build toxic alliances with leaders who share his disdain for human rights during his first foray into foreign diplomacy is deeply worrying."

 

 

Touching on Trump's ambitions to secure “the ultimate deal” for Middle East peace, Amnesty International's statement also deplored successive Israeli governments for large-scale violations throughout the 50-year-long occupation of the Palestinian territory, which "have inflicted mass suffering on Palestinians."

The international rights group highlighted how the state of Israel has been "emboldened" by the new Trump administration to accelerate the expansion of illegal settlements in violation of international law as well as step up Palestinian home demolitions.

Trump’s visit to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory was also met with a widely observed general strike and protests in the occupied West Bank, with a combined message of support for a mass hunger strike under way in Israeli prisons, and also to voice opposition to the resumption of peace talks between the Palestinian Authority and Israel under US sponsorship.

Protests Monday erupted into violent clashes, as a “Day of Rage” has also been called for on Tuesday.

Abbas: Freedom of Palestinians is the key to peace and stability

BETHLEHEM, May 23, 2017 (WAFA) – President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday that freedom and independence of the Palestinian people is the key to peace and stability.

Speaking at a press conference with visiting US President Donald Trump, Abbas said he is committed to a historical peace deal with the Israelis, and to work with Trump as partners in combating terrorism.

“My meeting with you at the White House earlier this month gave us and the Palestinian people a lot of hope and optimism to achieve a long-awaited dream of peace based on justice,” he said.

“The freedom and independence of the Palestinian people is the key to peace and stability in our region and the world, so that the children of Palestine and Israel enjoy a secure, stable and prosperous future,” he said, adding, “We reaffirm our commitment to cooperate for peacemaking and to reach a historic peace deal between us and the Israelis. We also reaffirm our readiness to continue to work with you as partners in the fight against terrorism in our region and the world.”

Abbas also reiterated his commitment to creating an independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and which lives in peace with Israel.

“We reaffirm our position on the two-state solution on the 1967 borders - the State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital, to live side by side with Israel in security and good-neighborly relations, and to resolve the permanent status issues based on international law and international resolutions and to honor the signed agreements in a way that would allow for the implementation of the Arab peace initiative, as reaffirmed at the recent Arab summit in Jordan,” said Abbas.

The President stressed that the conflict is not between religions but that the problem lies in the occupation and the settlements, in addition to Israel's non-recognition of the State of Palestine.

“As you saw yesterday, during your historic visit to the Holy places in occupied East Jerusalem and today in Bethlehem, the conflict is not between religions. Respecting religions and the prophets is an integral part of our belief,” he said.

“Our real problem is with the occupation and the settlements and Israel's failure to recognize the state of Palestine, as we recognized it, which undermines the achievement of the two-state solution.”

Speaking about prisoners in Israeli jails who are on hunger strike, said the demands of the prisoners are humane.

“On the issue of our Palestinian prisoners who have been on hunger strike for more than a month, a few meters from here near the Church of the Nativity and everywhere in Palestine, the mothers and families of the prisoners suffer from not being able to visit their children. Their demands are humane and just, and I call on the Israeli government to respond to these legitimate humanitarian demands,” said Abbas.

Abbas said that achieving peace will help growth of the Palestinian economy.

“Achieving peace, Mr. President, will open the horizon for the advancement of our economy and the completion of the building of our national institutions based on the rule of law in the spirit of tolerance and coexistence, the dissemination of a culture of peace, the renunciation of violence and incitement and the building of bridges instead of walls inside our territory,” he said.

Abbas concluded his statement by saying that he hopes history will record that President Trump is the American president who achieved peace between the Palestinians and Israelis, adding that he extends his hand to be a partner in this task.

Palestinians observe general strike as prisoners continue hunger strike for day 36
 
 
 

 

RAMALLAH, May 22, 2017 (WAFA) – Palestinians across the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem observed Monday a general strike in support of the over 1,800 hunger striking Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails.

Public and private institutions, including schools, universities, shops, transportation and other facilities were all shut down, with the exclusion of health services, pharmacies and bakeries.

The media committee of the Detainees Affairs Commission and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said health condition of most of the strikers is deteriorating, with some taken to prison clinics and other moved to hospital due to their critical health condition.

The committee denied Israeli reports regarding negotiations between the leadership of the strike and the Israel Prison Service.

On Sunday, some 200 Palestinian prisoners joined the hunger striking prisoners to bring the number up to 1,800.

The decision to join the hunger strike came as the Israel Prison Service refuses to negotiating the demands of the hunger strikers, the media committee of the Detainees Affairs Commission and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said.

The hunger strikers are calling for better access to medical care; increased visit duration from 45 to 90 minutes; removal of glass barriers during family visits; improved detention conditions including easing restrictions on the entry of books, clothing, food and other gifts from family members; installing phones to enable prisoners to communicate with their families and an end to the policy of administrative detention.

Health conditions of striking detainees deteriorates, some transferred to hospitals
 
 
 

 

RAMALLAH, May 22, 2017 (WAFA) - Health condition of Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons who have been on hunger strike for 36 days is deteriorating and requires effective procedures to save their lives, especially after transferring many of them to hospitals, the Media Committee of the strike said on Monday.

It said the prisons' administration was isolating the striking detainees from the outside world and putting obstacles in front of their families and human rights organizations to prevent them from knowing their health condition.

The committee also said, according to testimonies of striking detainees, that the prisons' field clinics the Israel prisons administration had established before the strike began lack the basic medical equipment. Moreover, detainees are offered to be treated in return for ending the strike.

The media committee added that the prisons' administration has recently transferred all striking detainees to prisons close to hospitals, following their worsening health situation.

The media committee of the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners' Society called on the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the World Health Organization and Physicians for Human Rights to compel the occupation government to prevent a real catastrophe in prisons by agreeing to the prisoners’ demands and to demand precise information about health conditions of striking prisoners.

Activists graffiti Ofer prison's walls in support of Palestinian hunger strikers
 
 
 
 
 
May 21, 2017 10:37 P.M. (Updated: May 22, 2017 12:34 P.M.)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian activists broke into the grounds of Israel's military court at the Ofer detention center Sunday afternoon and spray painted its outer walls with slogans in support of Palestinian prisoners currently on hunger strike across Israeli prisons, stenciled images of the strike's leader Marwan Barghouthi, and raised Palestinian flags.

Chairman of the occupied West Bank's higher committee against Israel's separation wall and settlements Munthir Amireh told Ma'an that the activists broke into the court's backyard, located in the West Bank's Ramallah district, to "express the Palestinian people's anger at the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation, and at Israel's indifference to the demands of prisoners who have been on hunger strike for 35 days."

The Palestinian people, he added, still have much to accomplish on behalf of Palestinians imprisoned by Israel "who represent a symbol of struggle, resistance, steadfastness, and dignity."

A member of the popular committees Mahmoud Zawahra said that the activists stormed the Ofer detention center and raised Palestinian flags on its walls to confirm that "prisoners in the occupation's jails are not alone," and that "the Palestinian people and the resistance will support them by all means."

In footage taken at the scene, one man says, while spray-painting an iconic image of Marwan Barghouthi raising his handcuffed hands over his head, that the action came in response to "the (Israeli) settlers, the dogs" who held a barbecue outside of Ofer prison in the early days of the strike to taunt hunger-striking prisoners with the smell of food.

The mass prison strike entered its 35th day on Sunday, as 220 more joined the some 1,300 Palestinians currently forgoing food in protest of their conditions in Israeli prisons.

Hunger-striking prisoners are calling for an end to the denial of family visits, the right to pursue higher education, appropriate medical care and treatment, and an end to solitary confinement and administrative detention -- imprisonment without charge or trial -- among other demands for basic rights.

Since the strike began on April 17, solidarity sit-ins have been established across the occupied Palestinian territory, with daily demonstrations being organized locally as well as abroad.

A general strike was called for by the committee established to support the hunger strike, set to take place on Monday to coincide with US President Donald Trump’s arrival to Israel. Palestinian leadership also called for a “Day of Rage” on Tuesday during Trump's visit in Bethlehem, to express rejection to the resumption of peace talks between the Palestinian Authority and Israel under US sponsorship.

Israeli settler who killed Palestinian in Nablus not being investigated as criminal suspect

 
 
May 18, 2017 7:46 P.M. (Updated: May 18, 2017 7:48 P.M.)
 
 
A Palestinian grieves next to the body of 23-year-old Muataz Hussein Hilal Bani Shamsa
 
 
 
 
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The Israeli settler who shot and killed one Palestinian and injured another on Thursday near the Huwwara village, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, is not being investigated by Israeli police as a criminal suspect, according to Israeli news daily Haaretz.

Haaretz identified the settler, who shot and killed 23-year-old Muataz Hussein Hilal Bani Shamsa during clashes on a shared Palestinian-Israeli settler road in Huwwara, as a resident of the nearby illegal Itamar settlement.

After the settler shot and killed Shamsa, injured Palestinian journalist Majdi Eshtayya with live ammunition, and injured three other Palestinians when he rammed his car into a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance, the settler went to Israeli police and filed a complaint against the crowd of Palestinians he opened fire on, claiming they were attempting to “lynch” him.

"An Israeli citizen was brutally attacked by a group of Palestinian assailants who threw rocks at his car and tried to murder him, my inquiries suggest," Israel’s Education Minister and chairman of the extreme right-wing Jewish Home party Naftali Bennett said in response to the incident.

Haaretz quoted Bennett as saying that the settler acted "in order to prevent a lynching, he fired at his attackers and killed one of them,” adding that “rocks kill,” referring to the clashes that were occurring around the settler at the time of the shooting, in which Israeli forces fired tear gas at Palestinian protesters who were throwing rocks.

"If the Israeli citizen, who is a social worker and a father, had not acted as he did, the State of Israel today would have had to look his orphaned children in the eye. Any one of us, as a parent, as a citizen, would have acted" as the settler did, Bennett said.

Witnesses told Ma’an at the time of the incident that clashes erupted after Israeli forces attempted to suppress a protest that was being held in support of Palestinian hunger-striking prisoners.

According to the witnesses, the settler, who drove into the middle of the clashes, stepped out of his car and opened fire indiscriminately on the crowd of Palestinians, shooting Shamsa in the head, killing him.

Head of the ambulance and emergency department of the Palestinian Red Crescent Ahmad Jibreel told Ma’an that following the shooting, the settler had hit a Red Crescent ambulance with his car, as the ambulance was on its way to the location where Shamsa was shot.

The settler hit three Palestinians during the vehicular incident, Jibreel said, adding that the three had sustained minor injuries from the settler's car.

An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately for comment to confirm reports that the settler was not being investigated for Shamsa’s killing.

Shortly after the shooting, an Israeli settler, under the protection of Israeli soldiers, was filmed distributing candy to passing Israeli vehicles south of Nablus in celebration of Shamsa’s killing.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

Palestinian activists and rights groups have long accused Israel of fostering a “culture of impunity” for Israeli settlers and soldiers committing violent acts against Palestinians.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), there were a total of 107 reported settler attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem in 2016.

In March, Israeli NGO Yesh Din revealed that Israeli authorities served indictments in only 8.2 percent of cases of Israeli settlers committing anti-Palestinian crimes in the occupied West Bank in the past three years.

Palestinian stone-throwers, in stark contrast, face harsh penalties by Israeli authorities, including up to 20 years in prison if charged with throwing stones at vehicles and a minimum prison sentence of three years for throwing a stone at an Israeli.

Les milliards de la mort
 
 

par Moncef Wafi

La folie destructrice des Arabes n'a plus de limite. La dernière en date est ce chèque libellé par les Al Saoud au nom de Trump, à l'occasion de son premier voyage à l'étranger, pour se payer 110 milliards de dollars d'armement. Premier objectif du roi wahhabite : contrer la «mauvaise influence iranienne» et ses menaces sur les frontières de l'Arabie saoudite, selon la lecture américaine. Trump est parti faire ses emplettes à Ryad et le moins qu'on puisse dire c'est qu'il a décroché le jackpot. «Des centaines de milliards de dollars d'investissements aux Etats-Unis et des emplois, des emplois, des emplois», annonçait-il dans son style particulier.

Si cette nouvelle fait le bonheur des Américains, alors que le président républicain est au centre d'un russogate, et des Israéliens, elle est de mauvais augure pour le monde musulman déjà déchiré dans ses entrailles avec les massacres enregistrés au Yémen, en Irak, en Syrie et en Libye. Les Arabes gaspillent des milliards de dollars pour des armes qu'ils retournent vers leur propre peuple et contre leurs coreligionnaires alors qu'Israël assassine impunément les civils palestiniens, bombarde les populations désarmées de Ghaza et construit, sous l'œil bienveillant des démocraties occidentales, des milliers de logements de colonisation.

Les monarchies du Golfe, premiers financiers du terrorisme islamiste, se voient encourager par les Américains dans cette voie destructrice avec en prime des chèques à neuf zéros pour faire tourner leur industrie de la mort. Cette transaction trahit, si besoin est, cette hypocrisie occidentale qui condamne le djihad international et en même temps arme ses bailleurs de fonds. Washington et Tel-Aviv préparent une guerre par procuration contre l'Iran, un remake de celle de 80-88 qui a coûté quelque 500.000 à 1,2 million de morts musulmans. Si Washington ne le claironne pas haut et fort, il ne se cache pas en précisant que ces contrats militaires serviront aux Saoudiens de suppléer les Américains dans ces «opérations de contre-terrorisme à travers la région».

Comprendre que des Arabes seront armés pour combattre d'autres Arabes sous couvert de la lutte antiterroriste, en Syrie ou au Liban. Le message est clair d'autant plus que lors de son discours, hier, devant des dirigeants du monde musulman, Donald Trump, appelant à lutter contre l'extrémisme, a souligné que ce n'est «pas une bataille entre religions» mais bel et bien «une bataille entre le bien et le mal». Et dans la perception manichéenne des Américains, le bien c'est eux, le mal c'est nous.

200 prisoners in Israeli jails join hunger strike
 
 
 

 

RAMALLAH, May 21, 2017 (WAFA) – More than 200 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails joined on Sunday the over 1,800 hunger striking Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, according to the media committee of the strike.

The decision to join the hunger strike came as the Israel Prison Service continues to reject negotiating the demands of the hunger strikers, the committee added.

For the 35th day in a row, about 1,800 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are continuing the Freedom and Dignity hunger strike amid strict repressive measures by the Israeli authorities to break their strike.

The hunger strikers are calling for better access to medical care; increased visit duration from 45 to 90 minutes; removal of glass barriers during family visits; improved detention conditions including easing restrictions on the entry of books, clothing, food and other gifts from family members; installing phones to enable prisoners to communicate with their families and an end to the policy of administrative detention.
