Further evidence, if it were needed that the Arab/Israeli ‘peace process’ is a farce.
Long time observers and experts of the Arab/Israeli conflict have continually dismissed (particularly) Israeli efforts to resolve it. The corrupt Palestinian Authority, through its weakness, has assisted the stream of belligerent Israeli governments in the pretence of a ‘peace process’. Over thirty or forty years, the Israelis have hoodwinked any interested parties into believing that they continually strive for a peace agreement. During all this time, they have been stealing Arab land, as well as intensifying the persecution of the Palestinians.
The predominant enabler to these crimes has been and still is, America. Purporting to be an honest peace broker, they have been nothing of the sort, continually undermining any remote chance of success. So the announcement from Trump, that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner would be given the job of mediating, was staggering.
First of all, Kushner is a Zionist who has contributed to the building of illegal settlements. He’s also an Orthodox Jew. It has now become apparent that Kushner’s family have been good friends of the Netanyahu’s for many years. How can the squeaky voiced Kushner be an impartial problem solver? He does make previous US attempts at arbitration look balanced.
Lets imagine the situation was reversed and the Arabs were in a powerful position, assisted by their generous friend, America. Would the Israelis allow a staunch anti Zionist be the main mediator? Lets not forget that any anti-Semitic feeling on the Arab side is more than equalled in anti Arab feeling from the Israelis. And yes, I know that many Arabs are Semites too, so the phrase is rather deceiving.
Kushner is just about the most biased person that Trump could have found to resolve the Arab/Israeli conflict but maybe that’s why he chose him.
A shocking and revealing video shows the sadistic and cruel mentality towards a little 8-year-old Palestinian girl, Anwar Burqan, who is simply playing, just like any other child would, anywhere in the world. This soldier has been suspended but he will be quietly reinstated, maybe even promoted. His superiors will warn him to be more careful not to be filmed in future.
It’s not easy to film someone without their knowledge, particularly using a mobile phone or camera. Hopefully, a Palestinian electronics genius will design a tiny power supply that will power an old mobile phone camera. It will be almost impossible to detect and subsequently events like this (which happen every day) can be recorded for the world to see what a sick society Israel has become. Due to conscription, the morals or lack of, are simply a reflection of the general population and the way it thinks. The only way to distance oneself from this ideology would to be to refuse to join the military.
The soldiers have claimed that they were simply stopping her from getting hurt by not allowing her to ride her bike into dangerous Jewish areas where Palestinian Arabs are not allowed. They also claim their lack of Arabic language skills stopped them from telling her. This excuse is poor to the extreme, all they had to do was point her in the right direction, why was seizing her cycle necessary?
At least we got this victims name. He was killed by an Israeli volunteer . The report from MA`AN news agency said:
‘He said a Palestinian worker “attempted to stab” an Israeli border police volunteer, who shot the worker in response.’
I don’t have a criminal record , certainly not for violence , neither have I been a victim of aggressive behaviour , so I’m not entirely sure of what would go through a persons mind if confronted by someone with a gun. We do know the bullet is much faster than the hand so anyone with a degree of intelligence would not try to be faster than a gun projectile. This isn’t the first claim of a Palestinian attacking an Israeli soldier with a k knife or sharp object.
If this had been the opposite way round, the Israeli supporting BBC would have it in their headlines, probably all day depending on other news. But because an unarmed Palestinian was killed by the IDF it will slide under the BBC radar.
Locals of Qabalan village denied that al-Aqraa tried to stab the volunteer.
I know who I would believe, and its not the people with the guns. Just like almost all crimes against the Palestinians this one is more than likely end with no punishment for the offender. Sickening , isn’t it?
