Breaking News : 60 Seconds

First of all Arabic channels have just aired the video of Shalit , those expensive 60 seconds that prove he is a live and fine not to mention healthy

I will work to post it here. Shalit looks fine in fact great unlike the Palestinian and Arab prisoners. Shalit’s message was recorded last September 14, 2009 as the newspaper he was holding showed the date.

Today earlier Israel has released 19 female prisoners for those important 60 seconds, very important 60 seconds which are recorded for sure.

I want to say something , this small deal is very important , yes most of those 19 female prisoners were going to be released sooner next year but the fact that for just 60 seconds , 19 prisoners were released after years of negotiations.

Israel did not win in this deal as much as both Hamas and Omar Soliman did and I say Omar Soliman because this is a bounce for his foreign policies political record.

Here are the complete of the Palestinian female prisoners freed today by the Israeli forces :

The Palestinian Holocaust Museum

The Palestinian Holocaust Museum is a virtual museum includes the testimonies of the Israeli war crimes against the Palestinians . The museum is a modest virtual attempt to show the world the reality of what is going in Palestine from continuing war crimes not only against Palestinians but against human mankind.

The website includes the photos of the victims who are mainly children with their information,the weapons used in those war crimes and the international testimonies against these war crimes.

Please spread this website because it is the truth the Israeli war machine media does not want to let the world know about

Important Petition

I know that you probably think that online petitions are useless but they are not because I believe they are another form of expression available to the people around the world.

This petition is special , it is an international petition to the UN General Assembly to set up a special international penal court to try Israeli war crimes, notably in the Gaza Strip.

It is published by the French Palestine Solidarity Association, I hope that more people sign this petition to show that we have not forgotten what happened in Gaza and we want justice.

What happened in Gaza was a war crime by all means.

Thanks to dear friend Ségolène Liger

Spread the website please

The Confessions of Israeli death squad soldier

British Independent published a very interesting interview with an Israeli ex-death squad Soldier. The former soldier participated in the assassination operation of Jamal Abdel Razeq and another Palestinian militant from 8 years ago. The problem is that those two militants were not killed alone , two bystanders were killed two. The soldier can’t forget up till now how terrible it was to kill innocent civilian .  Up till now that soldier has not told his parents  and up till now he is suffering from the consequence.

You can read the whole interview here .

The Arab league delegation to Gaza to investigate the IDF war crimes

This week the first Arab league investigation delegation went to Gaza to investigate the IDF war crimes against the Palestinian citizens. I was so happy when I read the news making the headlines whether in the Arab world or Israel despite there was not much comment about it. The delegation will document those crimes in order to escalate the matter in front of the ICC.

This is the first delegation with such mission to be sent from the Arab League as far as I remember, this is so promising for sure. I read before that the Arab league was going to sent an investigation delegation to Gaza but to be honest I did not believe that they were serious.

I hope that they continue to be serious and try to push this matter to the ICC

Stop using the word “terrorism”

I am tired of the hypocrisy of the IDF , whenever anyone brings up their war crimes against humanity ,it starts speaking about terrorism with all it different kinds including the legal terrorism !!

I am not surprised that Liron Liebman ,the head of IDF’s military prosecution’s international law department to defend his army but I am afraid is that his focus only was about the IAF pilots who threw WP on civilian and UN targets.

The IAF was not the only force that committed war crimes in the Gaza that should be punished for , the IDF was involved.

Also regarding the mistakes as he liked to call it

"It’s impossible not to make mistakes in such a crowded environment, under pressure. There’s a large gap between mistakes and the ‘war crimes’ people like to accuse us of."

I do not think that such a crime of targeting babies directly could be a mistake , this is not a mistake at all , this is a war crime.

IDF colonel leaves speaking tour of UK for fear of arrest

IDF colonel leaves speaking tour of UK for fear of arrest

This news is great and it is not the first time it happens , I think Michel Messiah is behind this court order . I wish Egyptian activists in UK would do the same regarding the POWs cases

I also wish that the British government and the Israeli government will fail in changing these laws.

It is disgusting how Israel wants to change the laws of other countries to suit it where as it claims it is the democracy oasis in the dictatorship desert in the Middle East. If it were a democratic country then it would respect that this law was legislated and approved in a democraticy system by the representatives of the public in a free country.

I hope that general won’t be the last one not to enter Europe for fear of the arrest.In fact I hope one of those generals one day would be arrested and sued in the ICC

The Egyptian Parliament , Gaza and the Egyptian POWs

The Egyptian parliament speaker Dr. Fathi Sorror and the NDP members are saying that they would go abroad and expose the war crimes of the IDF against the people of Gaza. They said that they would head to the European Parliament to expose those war crimes against humanity. This is great and I already understand that they are doing so to prove that the Egyptian regime is not bad as portrayed in the Arabic media not because they have to do so  because they are members of the Egyptian Parliament but what about the war crimes of the IDF against our POWs in 1956 and in 1967 ??

Did they forget them ??

A letter from a Palestinian Child to the US President

To the leader of the free of world : Barack Obama

A letter from a Palestinian Child to the US President

This is a letter from a Palestinian Child who does not have clear definition for terms like “terrorism” and “peace”.

I am sure the Palestinian children like Gamila, Louai and Samar have similar letters to President Obama.

Please spread this letter to president Obama.

This letter encouraged me to send a message to President Obama:

Dear President Obama  as you are working to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp ,I only ask you that the United States would stop exporting incendiary weapons to Israel like the DIME , I do not ask you to stop supporting Israel whether by money or by arms despite I know in this critical time in the American history each penny from the tax payers money the American citizen deserves now more than ever, more than Israel and more than Egypt and Pakistan.

The road to the ICC

ICC announced new rules to encourage somehow the war criminals to show up with their dignity  in the court !! They can return back to their countries during the trial ..etc. Of course this can happen in a perfect world.No war criminal will give up that easily
Already Amr Moussa , the general secretary of the Arab league is having talks with the ICC in order to sue the IDF for war crimes against the Palestinian People in Gaza as the evidence of war crimes was crystal clear. I respect Moussa’s quick and smart move but I wonder why he did not the same the thing with the Egyptian POWs case when he was a FM of Egypt or even in his current position with my all respect and support to the Palestinian cause1
This is from the official side , unofficially some Arabic civil society and human rights organization will have a meeting today at San’a’ governorate in Yemen in order to form an alliance to sue the IDF war criminals abroad, again I wonder why our civil society organization did not think in this option before but it is a good step. But of course I do not want to be pessimistic already the civil society and human rights organizations in the Arab world are too weak .
On the other hand the Israeli government knows that its soldiers and officers can be sued from wars crimes and as their habit to break international laws and so it announced that it would protect any Israeli fighter accused of war crimes will be granted a state protection from prosecution over seas. Strangely Ehud Olmert who once said that he cried for the murder of the Palestinian children was the one who announced this statement.
Still the human rights organizations in Israel are giving hard time to the military establishment and also the radical Zionists. Yesh Din,an Israeli Human rights organization is calling the IDF to sack a military Rabbi who distributed religious books on the soldiers calling them to show no mercy to a cruel enemy .
