Israel: Thousands Coerced Into Leaving the Country

Sudanese, Eritreans Seeking Protection Faced With Indefinite Detention

(SALEM, Ore.) - Eritreans and Sudanese Israeli authorities have unlawfully coerced almost 7,000 Eritrean and Sudanese nationals into returning to their home countries where they risk serious abuse, Human Rights Watch said in a report released Tuesday. Some returning Sudanese have faced torture, arbitrary detention, and treason charges in Sudan for setting foot in Israel, while returning Eritreans also face a serious risk of abuse.

The 83-page report, “‘Make Their Lives Miserable:’ Israel’s Coercion of Eritrean and Sudanese Asylum Seekers to Leave Israel,” documents how Israel’s convoluted legal rules thwart Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers’ attempts to secure protection under Israeli and international law.

Moral Bankruptcy

The abusive behavior applauds the perpetrator of land theft and crimes against humanity, and demonizes the victims.

(LONDON) - Cartoon by Carlos Latuff The August that marked the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the one they called ‘The War To End All Wars’ is over. We are in autumn or The Fall as Americans call it. Well named for us, the Arabs, because in 1916 in our quest for freedom from the Ottomans we fell, hook line and sinker, for false promises and lies of Britain and its allies and joined the war.

Yet, not only did that war fail to fulfill any of our dreams and aspirations for the Arabs, especially us, the Palestinians it was and is and will continue to be an unmitigated disaster for generations to come.

Clash Of Civilizations

The murderous attacks upon the Palestinian people, condoned by so many around the world, make it clear we are witnessing a clash of civilizations.

(LONDON) - America-Israel The Israeli army confirmed today that up to 130 Palestinian civilians were slaughtered in Rafah last Friday following the triggering of the Hannibal protocol - an IDF directive that is designed to thwart the capture of Israeli combatants.

Israel unleashed its full firepower and flattened an entire neighbourhood using tanks, artillery and gunships murdering 130 Palestinians just to make sure that one Israeli soldier, Lt. Hadar Goldin didn’t fall into Hamas’ hands alive.

Mowing The Grass

"They do not forget. All that endure the humiliation, abuse and murder of those they love do not forget." -Chris Hedges

(LONDON) - grim reaper of gaza Today is Sunday and in the West it is a day of leisure. A popular activity is tending well-manicured gardens, enjoying the peace and quiet and mowing the grass.

Mowing the grass in Israeli military speak has a different connotation altogether. ‘Mowing the grass’ is a recognized Israeli military strategy as defined by Professor Efraim Inbar and Dr Eitan Shamir, both of the Begin-Sadat Center of Strategic Studies at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University.

The Slaughter of the Innocents

"Leave or Die" is the message, yet there is no where to leave "to".

(LONDON) - child in cross-hairs 13When the Magi (the three wise men) had gone an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt...

That was then, when the infant Jesus could find a safe haven and sanctuary in Egypt. Which is more that can be said for the children of Gaza today looking to find a safe haven in present day Egypt under the dictatorship of Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi. Two thousand years ago when the world was under the hegemony of the Roman Empire it was a very different world from today.

Hamas Pricks Israel`s Soft Under-Belly, Ben Gurion Airport

The British gave up Lydda airport in April 1948 and IDF soldiers captured the airport on 10 July 1948, in Operation Danny, when the population was driven out as part of Israel's ethnic cleansing programme.

(LONDON) - Lydda Airport Hamas has hit Palestine's bloodthirsty occupier where it could hurt real bad -- in the soft under-belly that is Ben Gurion airport. The Resistance has achieved this by lobbing a rocket too close for comfort and causing air carriers in the United States and Europe to halt flights to Tel Aviv after warnings from governmental agencies concerned about passenger safety.

"The carriers are making the right call," said Robert Mann, an airline consultant in Port Washington, New York.
