MessagePosté le: Sam 26 Juil - 01:52 (2014)    Sujet du message: THE INTERNATIONAL AL-QUDS (JERUSALEM) AND THE PALESTINE DAY ON JULY 25, 2014 Répondre en citant


Now, you know why they choose this date to organize all these mobilizations around the world to support Palestine. UN and his partners are the ones, behind the door, to promote this global chaos and this hate against Israel.

- The call thrown by the imam Khomeyni, thirty-two years ago, to celebrate the worldwide day of al-Qods (Jerusalem) ; = Iran
- Millions of Muslims all over the world gather together in favor of the Palestinian people on the occasion of the Day of Al-Qods
- International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian - Palestine organized by the United Nations at UNESCO Headquarters


International Day of al-Quds is an annual event, supporting a just peace for Palestine, and opposing Apartheid Israel’s control of Jerusalem (al-Quds in Arabic: القـُدْس), the international city that stands as a powerful symbol to three of the world’s great religious traditions. Pro-justice and anti-Zionist Apartheid demonstrations are held on this day in most Muslim and Arab countries and by Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the world, including the United States. It is held each year on the last Friday of the Muslim month of Ramadhan. The Day of al-Quds is also an opportunity to stand on the side of the oppressed worldwide, not just in the Holy Land. Jerusalem Day is not an Islamic religious event but rather a human rights event open to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.



What is al-Quds Day?

al-Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem and its environs, the Holy Land. Yawm al-Quds or al-Quds Day is a day of solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people in their struggle against the Zionist-Apartheid system of Israel. Al-Quds Day also extends beyond Palestine to support all oppressed people in their struggles across the world. All over the world seminars, rallies and marches are held on this day, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadhan in order to pledge solidarity with those seeking peace through justice.

Who organizes this event?

Since al-Quds Day serves as an international day of solidarity, the event is held in cities across the world including many cities across the U.S. and Canada  In general, events in each city are organized by a local ad hoc committee of Muslim activists and students.  Recently many of these ad hoc committees have begun a loose coordination on the national level through alqudsday.org’s sister site, freealquds.org.   Currently there is no formal affiliation between the various organizers in different North American cities. The only affiliation between these various groups is a strong stance in support of justice for our oppressed Palestinian sisters and brothers.

Who attends these events?

Generally the intended audience for these gatherings are local Muslim youths and families, although in recent years attendees have expanded to include students as well as anyone supporting justice for the oppressed Palestinian people, whether from a human rights perspective or a Christian or Jewish scriptural perspective.

When is al-Quds Day typically held?

It is usually the last Friday of the Muslim month of Ramadhan which, in the Islamic tradition, is a holy month when Muslims fast during the daylight hours and are in a spiritually heightened state. This spiritual awareness increases throughout the month, especially on Fridays, the Muslim sabbath.  Within this spiritually heightened state, we invite our brothers and sisters, Christians, Jews and all others that wish to express solidarity with the oppressed to join us.

What kind of speakers are invited?

In past years we have had a very diverse lineup of speakers including:
Imams of local mosques
Leaders of Muslim organizations
Muslim activists
Spoken word artists and poets
Christian Ministers and activists
Jewish Rabbis and activists
Human rights activists
Anti-war activists
Student groups
And many others

What connections do you have with foreign groups?

We currently do not have any affiliation with any foreign groups.

These events must cost money, who finances these events?

In general, we are funded through many small, individual private donations within the U.S. and Canada.

What is the purpose of these events?

Generally the main focus for al-Quds Day events is to educate and invigorate.  More specifically we focus on promoting the consumer boycott of companies that support Israeli Apartheid as a part of the larger Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Why boycott companies that support Israeli Apartheid?

As conscientious people, we must sever all forms of support for the Apartheid economy of Israel. We recognize that around the world and particularly in the US there is an ever-expanding boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against the racist State of Israel and its corporate supporters. One facet of this movement is a consumer boycott of those American companies that decide to dirty themselves with their connection to the Apartheid State. These companies are being educated about how their close relationship with the Zionist Apartheid state is a liability.



Solemn meeting held by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People at the United Nations Office in Vienna

29 November 2000

Statement by Dr. Hans Köchler, President of the International Progress Organization

One of the important legacies of the United Nations Organization is its contribution to the liberation of peoples from colonial rule and foreign occupation. In the field of de-colonization, the world organization has provided the framework for the political and legal support to independence movements worldwide. The organization's remarkable success in the field of de-colonization was made possible because of the unity among its member states in support of the inalienable right to self-determination.

The UN's success, however, is not complete as long as an entire people is forced to live under the yoke of foreign occupation and as long as colonial settlers usurp this people's rights and exploit land and resources which are not their own. This is, in short, the situation the Arab people of Palestine is facing at the dawn of the 21st century – after many decades of betrayal, denial of the most basic human rights, expulsion from its homeland and continued military aggression and occupation.

In spite of the solemn proclamations by the League of Nations and later by the United Nations Organization of each people's right to self-determination, the Palestinians were never given the right to decide about their own future. Upon the end of Ottoman rule, Palestine was put under British Mandate by the League of Nations. The statute of this Mandate incorporated the basic provisions of the Balfour Declaration implicitly denying the Palestinian people's right over its own land. When the Mandate ended after World War II, the Palestinians were again prevented from exercising sovereignty over their land. The Palestinian people's rights have been further curtailed and neglected since the war of 1948. All of historical Palestine – including Jerusalem – was seized by Israel in the course of the 1967 war. In spite of numerous United Nations resolutions, the occupying power has refused to withdraw and to give up its illegal claim of sovereignty over Palestine; to the contrary: it annexed Jerusalem, declared it as its capital and established colonial settlements all over the occupied territories. All of this was done in contravention to the basic rules of international law and in the face of protest and condemnation by the international community.

The so-called "peace process," which was initiated in 1991 after the Gulf War, did not improve the situation. To the contrary: the existing settlements were expanded, a big number of settlers – particularly from the United States – were brought into Palestine, the number of Jewish settlements drastically increased. Palestinian land was confiscated, Palestinian houses were demolished, and occupied Jerusalem was further strangulated by the establishment of a ring of Jewish settlements around it. In view of these undeniable facts which have developed particularly since 1993, it has become clear that the Oslo agreements cannot constitute the framework for a just and lasting settlement of the Palestinian problem and for genuine peace in the region. These agreements do not deal with the core issue, namely that of Palestinian sovereignty, and they put aside all the basic questions including that of Jerusalem, while reserving virtually all sovereignty rights to the occupying power.

The Al-Quds Intifadah is the legitimate expression of the Palestinian people's will to resist continued subjugation and humiliation by the occupying power. In the present tragic situation in Palestine, we consider it appropriate to emphasize the basic legal principles and considerations which are part of the international rule of law as represented by the United Nations:
  • The Palestinian people's right to self-determination is an inalienable right guaranteed under international law. It cannot be abrogated under whichever circumstances.
  • The Palestinian people has the legitimate right to resist the foreign occupation of its land and to defend itself against any act of aggression and usurpation of its rights.
  • The Israeli annexation of Jerusalem is null and void. Israeli sovereignty claims over Jerusalem may provoke a wider confrontation with the whole Muslim world.
  • The Israeli army's practices in the occupied Palestinian territories constitute serious violations of international humanitarian law, including grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
  • All Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine are illegal and have to be evacuated unconditionally.

All above mentioned facts and practices have been denounced by the United Nations. It is an undeniable fact that Israel's status in the Palestinian territories is that of a belligerent occupant. The Security Council – in resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973) – called for the withdrawal of Israeli troops from occupied Palestine; the General Assembly repeatedly affirmed the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people "including (a) the right of self-determination without external interference, (b) the right to national independence and sovereignty" (resolution of 22 November 1974).

Irrespective of all these solemn declarations, reiterated time and again since the war of 1967, the United Nations has been unable to adopt compulsory measures against the occupying power. Because of the special veto rule contained in Article 27 of the Charter, the Security Council has not been in a position to impose collective enforcement measures under Chapter VII of the Charter.

It is not surprising that the people of Palestine see themselves as victims of a policy of double standards, which has left them virtually without support by the international community against the continued usurpation of their land. Under the very eyes of that international community, facts have been created on the ground that with every passing day make it harder to reach a peaceful settlement.

At this solemn occasion, I want to emphasize without any ambiguity: peace can never be achieved on the basis of the subjugation of an entire people. Not one single colonial settlement must remain in Palestine if a lasting solution is to be found. The question of Jerusalem is the core issue of a peace settlement. Palestinian-Arab sovereignty has to be fully restored over Al-Quds Al-Sharif. Vague concepts of "joint sovereignty" or other imprecise legal terms only obfuscate the real issue and will not work in a situation where the occupying power has declared the illegally annexed city as its "eternal capital."

The sad history of the Oslo accords has taught us that "peace agreements" cannot work in a constellation where one party enjoys overwhelming power and where it is able to impose its will upon the weaker side. A further lesson can be drawn from what was euphemistically termed the "peace process": the main ally of one of the parties to a dispute can never play the role of honest broker or mediator. No peace settlement that deserves its name can be achieved if colonial settlements remain in the midst of Palestinian land, whether in Jerusalem, the West Bank or Gaza. As rightly stated by the American-Jewish author Alfred Lilienthal at our organization's 1980 conference on Palestine and Jerusalem, the creation of a Palestinian Bantustan is not a viable solution. One should learn the lessons of history and pay due attention to the total failure of the concept of so-called "Homelands" in apartheid South Africa.

What we witness today is not simply the repetition of the Palestinian Intifadah of the eighties. The Al-Quds Intifadah marks a decisive new step in the liberation struggle of the Arab people of Palestine – in the context of a general awakening of the popular masses in the Arab and Muslim world after years of political agony and disunity.

If a larger conflict threatening peace and security in the whole Middle Eastern region and beyond is to be avoided, the Palestinian people must be entitled to regain sovereignty over its land and resources. Concepts of "limited sovereignty" or "autonomy," based on the logic of colonial tutelage and domination, are not anymore acceptable to a people who over decades has been humiliated and subjected to all forms of domination and denial of its basic rights.

A lasting settlement in Palestine has to include a complete withdrawal from all occupied territories including Jerusalem, the acknowledgment of the right of return for the Palestinians who were forced to leave their land since 1948, and adequate compensation for the losses of land and property. The confiscation of Palestinian land and the building of settlements have to be stopped immediately and all existing settlements have to be evacuated without exception.

These are not unjustified or unreasonable demands but necessary requirements of peace which are clearly derived from United Nations resolutions and general principles of international law. A future sovereign State of Palestine cannot be based on the concept of limited sovereignty or on continued interference by the present occupying power in its internal affairs. The State must have full control over natural resources and international affairs.

We call upon the international community to exercise pressure upon the occupying power and to use all necessary means to stop the Israeli army from killing stone-throwing Palestinian youth. The Israeli army has no legal right whatsoever to be present in the Palestinian territories. It must immediately stop the excessive and disproportionate use of force against Palestinian civilians and its brutal military attacks on the Palestinian infrastructure. Such large-scale attacks escalate the conflict in a dangerous manner. De-escalation will only be possible on the basis of the army's speedy and complete withdrawal from the occupied territories. International civil society – in particular non-governmental organizations – can play a vital role in influencing organizations such as the United Nations or the European Union to use adequate pressure vis-à-vis the occupier.

In conformity with the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, an international force should be dispatched immediately by the United Nations to protect the civilian population of Palestine from the massive attacks of the Israeli occupation army.

The apparent failure of bilateral – or trilateral – negotiations as evidenced in the collapse of the "Oslo process" basically results from the drastic imbalance of power relations between the State of Israel and the "stateless" Palestinians. Let me recall, in this regard, what I said exactly twenty years ago at the special meeting held at UN Headquarters in commemoration of the Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People: "Only the United Nations – with its multilateral structure – and not any kind of bilateral agreement can provide the legal and political framework for the achievement of the aspirations of the Palestinian people under the leadership of its sole legitimate representative, the Palestine Liberation Organization."

In this new and decisive phase of the Palestinian people's liberation struggle, the adequate response of the international community to the Al-Quds Intifadah will not merely be humanitarian gestures and emergency aid, as important as these may be in a time of armed confrontation, but decisive political action (including economic pressure) so as to induce the occupying power to withdraw from a land over which it has no right, and to convince it that it cannot pacify the land against the will of its legitimate inhabitants.

The establishment of a truly sovereign Arab state in Palestine, including Jerusalem, could be the decisive factor in securing a lasting order of peace in the entire region. Even if this may sound like a highly idealistic assumption at the present moment: The settlement of the Palestinian problem on the basis of self-determination could be the catalyst for a "new order" of co-operation and partnership guaranteeing equal rights to the peoples of the Arab world and its neighbours. If one wants to avoid further confrontation and prolonged war threatening the stability of the entire region, there is simply no alternative to the unequivocal recognition of Palestinian sovereignty. It is the special mission of the United Nations Organization to provide the multilateral framework for a fair and comprehensive solution based on the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.

- L'appel lancé par l'imam Khomeyni, il y a trente-deux ans, pour célébrer la journée mondiale d'al-Qods ;
Des millions de musulmans du monde entier rassemblent en faveur du peuple palestinien à l'occasion de la Journée d'Al-Qods

- La journée Internationale de Solidarité avec les Palestiniens  - Palestine organisée par les Nations Unies sous l'UNESCO


juil 25, 2014

En ce moment à Qalandiya. Heurts violents en cours. 10.000 (les organisateurs annoncent 50.000) manifestants sont en route vers Al Aqsa, c’est à dire le Mont du Temple au coeur de Jérusalem.

Des dizaines de blessés lors d’affrontements actuellement avec les forces de l’ordre autour du checkpoint de Qalandiya qui contrôle et verrouille l’accès au Nord de Jérusalem.

La manifestation insurrectionnelle s’est formée à l’appel du leadership palestinien de Ramallah qui a appelé à des actions massives en soutien à Gaza et au Hamas, en vue du lancement d’une 3ème intifada.

L’agence d’information palestinienne Ma’annews annonce 2 tués et 108 blessés dont 60 par balles (à confirmer).

Les manifestants viennent du camp de réfugiés Al Amari et se dirigent vers Jérusalem (Al Amari est un camp palestinien financé par l’ONU et jumelé avec la ville de Stains dans le 93). Vendredi matin, le bilan est révisé à la baisse par l’hôpital de Ramallah à un tué et 3 blessés dans un état critique.

La tentative d’invasion belliqueuse a été bloquée par l’armée et les unités d’élite de la police des frontières (michmar hagvul) au checkpoint de Qalandyia entre Ramallah (capitale de l’Autorité Palestinienne) et Jérusalem (capitale de l’Etat d’Israël).

Les palestiniens brûlent des pneus pour créer des écrans de fumées et lancent des cocktails molotovs et des projectiles pyrotechniques et  incendiaires sur les forces de l’ordre.  Présence de lasers verts comme au Caire. Ballets d’ambulance. Hurlements de sirènes. Détonations. Très grande confusion.

Tirs à balles réelles sur les policiers israéliens et sur l’armée, pas de blessés. Les tirs contre les forces de l’ordre israéliennes ont été revendiqués par les Brigades des martyrs d’Al-Aqsa, milice armée proche d’Abu Mazen,(Mahmoud Abbas)  le Président de l’Autorité Palestinienne.

Particularité notable: de très nombreux palestiniens-américains dans la manifestation de Qalandiya visant à franchir la frontière, pénétrer en force sur le territoire israélien pour déferler sur Jérusalem.

Manifestation parallèle au Sud de Jérusalem et 2 manifestants blessés par tirs de balles en caoutchouc dans les affrontements à l’Est de Bethléem.

Partager la publication "Israël désigné à la tête d’une commission de l’ONU sur la « décolonisation »"

Au moment précis où il est apparu que les Nations unies ne pouvaient plus se montrer capables de protéger les droits palestiniens et demander des comptes à Israël à propos des violations de ces mêmes droits, tombe la nouvelle de ce qu’Israël a été désigné à la vice-présidence de la Commission spéciale de l’ONU sur la décolonisation – qui, entre autres choses, traite de questions relatives aux réfugiés palestiniens.

Des Palestiniens examinent les ruines de bâtiments démolis par les forces d’occupation israéliennes à Jérusalem Est, le 2 juin. (Saeed Qaq / APA images)

Selon les procès verbaux de l’ONU, le représentant d’Israël, la dernière nation au monde à implanter des colonies, a reçu 74 voix en faveur de sa désignation au poste, malgré une véhémente opposition de la part du Groupe arabe des États membres de l’ONU.

Le Qatar, prenant la parole au nom des États arabes, a qualifié Israël d’« État qui a violé la Charte des Nations unies ainsi que les lois internationales. Du fait que son palmarès était entaché de sang et que son occupation dure depuis plus de 66 ans, Israël n’était pas qualifié pour présider à des questions concernant les réfugiés palestiniens, le maintien de la paix et les enquêtes sur ses propres pratiques illégales ».

Les États arabes ont réclamé un vote nominatif, une démarche inhabituelle, ce qui a provoqué des objections de la part de l’ambassadeur du Royaume-Uni, qui est membre du Groupe des États d’Europe occidentale et autres qui avait sélectionné Israël.

Le Canada a profité de l’occasion pour exprimer son « soutien indéfectible à Israël » et les États-Unis ont dit qu’ils « soutenaient sans équivoque la désignation d’Israël ».

L’Arabie saoudite – dont la propre participation au Conseil des droits de l’homme de l’ONU a soulevé bien des critiques – a déclaré que l’élection d’Israël « équivalait moralement à confier au régime d’apartheid de l’Afrique du Sud la charge d’une commission censée mettre un terme au racisme ».

Le théâtre de l’absurde

Israël a remercié ses partisans, mais il est possible que ses actions aient fait plus de bruit que ses propos. Alors que ce théâtre de l’absurde jouait sa pièce à New York, les forces d’occupation israéliennes multipliaient les démolitions de maisons palestiniennes afin de faire de la place pour l’installation de colonies.

La désignation d’Israël vient quelques semaines après qu’il a annoncé une nouvelle expansion massive de ses colonies illégales en Cisjordanie occupée.

Dans la seule journée de mercredi, les démolitions israéliennes ont jeté sept familles palestiniennes à la rue en Cisjordanie.

Et visionnez donc le reportage photo de Silvia Boarini montrant l’actuel nettoyage ethnique par Israël des Bédouins palestiniens dans le sud de la région du Naqab (« Néguev ») située dans l’Israël actuel.

Ces dernières mesures d’épuration ethnique ont lieu en même temps que les attaques d’Israël contre les villes de Cisjordanie toute la semaine dernière, prétendument afin de rechercher les trois colons disparus. Jusqu’à présent, Israël a enlevé plus de 300 Palestiniens, a effectué des raids dans 750 maisons et au sein d’organisations de bénévoles ainsi que sur le campus de l’Université de Birzeit.

S’il y avait une Commission de l’ONU sur la façon d’occuper et de coloniser, Israël serait en effet le candidat idéal pour la diriger.

LAST UPDATED: 08/09/2014 21:54

The UN formula for ravaging Israel by ignoring the criminal actions of its foes – and the foes of the civilized world – is breathtaking.

a United Nations Security Council meeting at U.N. headquarters in New York Photo: REUTERS

On August 6, 2014, the United Nations convened the entire global community for an unusual day-long “informal” session of the General Assembly. The purpose: to demonize the Jewish state and emasculate its right of self-defense.

The UN formula for ravaging Israel by ignoring the criminal actions of its foes – and the foes of the civilized world – is breathtaking.

Not one of the UN speakers – the Secretary-General, the representative of the Office of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Human Rights Commissioner, the UN’s MidEast envoy, the head of UNRWA – even uttered the word “tunnel.”

Israel was denounced for destroying “homes and neighborhoods” and “civilian infrastructure.” But the fact that Israel had destroyed an extraordinary labyrinth of 32 terror tunnels deep underground – running for miles, jam packed with explosives, opening near Israeli towns, and built for the sole purpose of killing Jews – somehow just got left out.

Terror tunnels also did not make it into repeated references to “root causes.” Hamas’ promise to kill Jews and “obliterate” Israel did not count as a root cause of the conflict either. At the UN, “root cause” is reserved for the Israeli “occupation” – that is, the non-existent Jews that have not lived in Gaza for eight years.

Part of the reason that Palestinian hate-speech does not make it on to the UN agenda is that the UN has no definition of terrorism. In UN circles, Hamas is not a terrorist organization, but a welcome member of the Palestinian “unity” government.

This may help explain why UN actors have difficulty distinguishing a Palestinian combatant from a civilian, and have no hesitation heavily relying on Hamas-affiliated sources for casualty figures. At the General Assembly, UN representatives repeatedly talked about 1,800 dead in total; some referred to 1,350 civilian casualties.

The numbers game was sufficiently confusing – or maybe not – to the European Union that its representative told the assembled: “We condemn the terrible loss of almost 2,000 lives” – genocidal Hamas killers included.

The Secretary-General, UNRWA, and OCHA all called for an immediate “reconstruction effort” – that is, more concrete for Hamas that the UN will not ensure will be used for peaceful purposes.

Disturbing evidence of possible UNRWA complicity in Hamas attacks, which warranted a full investigation, was ignored. The facts that UNRWA schools have been used as Hamas rocket storage facilities and that the immediate vicinity of UNRWA schools have been used as staging grounds for Hamas rocket attacks were shrugged off with an implausible “we had no clue,” a de minimis naughty-naughty, or a lecture about overcrowding.

Meanwhile, UNRWA chief Pierre Krähenbühl had the audacity to complain of Israeli actions that inadvertently have damaged its schools: “we cannot comprehend why they occurred.”

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon added this whopper: “there were reports that Hamas rockets were fired from near UN premises. Yet, let me be clear: Mere suspicion of militant activity does not justify jeopardizing the lives and safety of many thousands of innocent civilians.”

Mere suspicion? The video and photographic substantiation is in the public domain. And the lives and safety of the 3.5 million innocent Israelis jeopardized by those rockets were deftly omitted from this equation.

UN Mideast envoy Robert Serry simply refused to blame Hamas for rejecting or violating the ceasefires or to acknowledge that Israel had done the opposite. To the UN, the terrorist organization and the democratic state are equals. Or as Serry put it: “each time a ceasefire expired, despite our best efforts to extend it, the violence raged on and claimed more victims...”

Topping the agenda is the start of a UN-driven global witchhunt for Israeli servicemen and women – or in UN terms, war criminals.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has already succeeded in launching another Goldstone-type inquiry via a UN Human Rights Council special session that took place on July 23, 2014. Just as she helped cook the books for the original 2009 Goldstone report, Pillay started by telling the Council that Israel’s “disregard for international humanitarian law...was shockingly evident.” Then she said “these incidents must be properly and independently investigated...” Pillay’s specialty: being UN judge, jury, and executioner.

Before the General Assembly on August 6, 2014 Pillay went farther. She aggressively pushed “the need for the International Criminal Court to address the situation.”

And the Palestinian Authority is actively considering accepting the jurisdiction of the Court, daring the U.S. Congress to respond to an American and Israeli “red line,” since this would render peace negotiations pointless. Why negotiate with a party that the Court is poised to debilitate?

While the General Assembly was fixated on slandering Israel, here is some of what was going on elsewhere in the real world.

In Iraq in July alone, 1,600 died. 5,576 civilians were killed by the Islamist terror organization ISIS and other Sunnis in the first six months of 2014. Another 40,000 members of religious minorities in Iraq are being starved and face immediate slaughter. In Syria in the second half of July alone, 2,000 Syrians were killed. The Islamist terror group Boko Haram has killed 2,053 in the first half of 2014. In Ukraine, 1,129 people have been killed since mid-April, and Russian tanks are lined up on the border.

But there have been no “informal” or “emergency” sessions of the General Assembly on any of these issues. In fact, there have been no “emergency” sessions of the General Assembly on any country but Israel since 1997. There have been no special sessions of the Human Rights Council on Iraq, Nigeria or Ukraine. And the last special session of the Council on Syria took place way back in June 2012.

In the face of this inversion of right and wrong, the Obama administration lined up – on the wrong side.

Rosemary A. DiCarlo, the US Deputy UN Permanent Representative, told the General Assembly that the administration was “horrified at the strikes that hit UNRWA schools” – knowing full well that Israel had confirmed the school was not targeted, that Hamas operatives fired mortar shells repeatedly from the area surrounding the school, that the more precise circumstances were being carefully and expeditiously examined by Israel, and that UN allegations could not be taken at face value.

Compare the US remarks to the statement made by the Canadian UN Ambassador Guillermo Rishchynski, a true friend of Israel. Canada told the General Assembly: “the responsibility for the death and the destruction that we have witnessed in recent weeks are attributable solely to Hamas.”

That is exactly the point. If a hostage is abducted, and police fire a shot that kills the hostage despite valiant efforts to target the hostage-taker, the death of the hostage is attributable solely to the abductor. Palestinian civilians are hostage to the violent criminals who use them as human shields.

Clearly, Israel cannot count on the Obama administration. So the prospect of an American abstention on a Security Council resolution on Gaza now looms over Israel’s head – providing undeserved comfort to the enemies of both Israel and America.

avr 30, 2012

L’UNESCO, la branche pour l’éducation la science et la culture de l’ONU, laquelle a perdu son financement des États-Unis pour avoir admis la «Palestine» en tant que membre à part entière, a décerné sa plus haute reconnaissance honorifique de l’Arabie saoudite du roi Abdallah pour « renforcer la culture de dialogue et de paix « .

La «Médaille d’or »  de l’UNESCO a été décerné au roi saoudien, la semaine dernière lors d’une visite de  Mme Irina Bokova, directrice de l’UNESCO. Les médias saoudiens rapporte que l’envoyé de « la palestine » (on se demande laquelle) était là.

Bokova, selon un communiqué de presse de l’UNESCO, fait l’éloge du roi pour «les efforts visant à mettre en œuvre sa réforme ambitieuse et à investir dans les gens de son pays. »

Pourtant il n’y a pas une semaine,  l’Arabie saoudite fermait son ambassade au Caire et rappelait son ambassadeur suite à un différend avec l’Egypte sur l’arrestation d’un avocat des droits de l’homme de nationalité égyptienne.  Des centaines d’Egyptiens avaient protesté des journées durant, face à l’ambassade saoudienne situé au Caire, afin d’exiger la libération d’Ahmed el-Gezawi. Cet avocat était coupable d’avoir insulté la famille royale saoudienne. Sans doute le rappel au respect des droits de l’homme, fut mal perçu par les chameliers royaux devenus producteurs de pétrole. L’avocat égyptien a donc été condamné a un an de prison et à 20 coups de bâton.

L’UNESCO a perdu un montant estimé à 80 millions par an  après que  les Etats-Unis ait mis fin au financement de l’UNESCO, l’an dernier suite à l’acceptation de « la Palestine ». Irina Bokova a besoin de ces fonds pour « construire la paix dans les esprits des hommes et femmes. »

Le roi d’Arabie saoudite a donc, en Octobre dernier, versé 5 millions de dollars à l’UNESCO au titre de l’initiation du  «Programme mondial pour le dialogue et une culture de paix. » Tout un programme, venant du pays, plus grand financier de l’islamisation et premiers donateur quand il s’agit d’assurer les besoins logistiques des salafistes et des jihadistes partout sur la planète, de l’Amérique du Sud à l’Indonésie en passant par Clichy sous bois.

Dans son dernier rapport mondial sur les droits humains, publié en Avril dernier,  le Département d’Etat américaine a noté d’ « importants problèmes de droits humains» chez les saoudiens , notamment:
 » Impossibilité de changer le gouvernement (de manière pacifique), l’application de la torture et la violence physique ; arrestations arbitraires et secret de la détention, le refus de procès équitables et publics et l’absence d’une procédure régulière dans le système judiciaire, beaucoup de prisonniers politiques;. restrictions sur les libertés civiles telles que les libertés d’expression (y compris l’Internet) et la liberté religieuse
« .

Cependant, si on étudie simplement le système islamique de la Sharia, loi divine selon l’islam, que peut bien avoir comme effet sur ce régime moyen ageux, un petit rapport américain. Ce n’est pas cela qui mettra fin au racisme confessionnel et aux lois d’exceptions vis à vis des non musulmans, au traitement des femmes, des voleurs, des apostats, des homos etc…

Le rapport semble bon de rappeler que «La violence contre les femmes et le manque d’égalité des droits pour les femmes, les violations des droits des enfants, la traite des personnes, et la discrimination sur la base du sexe, de religion, de secte, et l’origine ethnique étaient courantes ».

L’UNESCO est aujourd’hui réduit à cirer les babouches des pires crapules que l’histoire ait connu depuis Hitler ou les Khmers Rouges. Quel pathétique retour de bâton.

Cette association humanitaire n’en n’a plus pour longtemps, si d’ici peu,  un sursaut moral ne venait pas frapper à la porte de ce qui lui reste de conscience.

Bayefsky says UN is ‘inciting murderous intolerance towards’ Jews

Session of the Human Rights Council at the European headquarters of the UN / AP

BY: Adam Kredo
September 9, 2014 12:00 pm

A leading human rights advocate accused the United Nations and its member nations of being “the leading global purveyor of anti-Semitism” and “inciting murderous intolerance towards” Jewish people during an unprecedented speech Monday at the international body’s headquarters in New York City.

Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust (IHRH), stood before the U.N. and lambasted it for fanning the flames of global anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel, according to a copy of her remarks.

Bayefsky delivered her rebuke during an informal briefing on the threat anti-Semitism poses to international peace and security that was organized on the sidelines of the U.N. by the permanent mission of Palau.

While the briefing took place within the U.N.’s walls—and was attended mainly by members of the public and outside organizations—it was not formally sponsored by the international organization, leading Bayefsky to launch a scathing criticism.

“The U.N. is not having a conference on the threat that global anti-Semitism poses to international peace and security,” she said. “This is lunch-time. The courageous organizer, assisted by the principled representatives of the small state of Palau, is independent of the U.N. The facilities are not free.”

“But why couldn’t the U.N., founded on the ashes of the Jewish people, and presently witnessing a widespread resurgence in anti-Semitism, sponsor a conference on combating global anti-Semitism?” Bayefsky asked. “The answer is clear: Because the United Nations itself is the leading global purveyor of anti-Semitism.”

Bayefsky went on to criticize top U.N. officials and the organization for “mass produci[ing] inequality for Jews and the Jewish nation.”

“Photo-ops of the U.N. secretary-general and the U.N. high commissioner for human rights at the gates of Auschwitz are not an alibi,” she said, dubbing these worthless public relations moves.

“One does not honor the memory of Jews murdered by intolerance six decades ago by inciting murderous intolerance towards the remnant of the Jewish people in the here and now,” Bayefsky said. “Incitement to hate, like declaring Israel to be racist—as does the U.N. Durban Declaration—the flagship of the U.N.’s racist anti-racism program of action.”

The U.N. has vociferously criticized Israel and its military over the past weeks of indiscriminately waging war against the Palestinian people, a charge that critics such as Bayefsky said is rooted in the organization’s deep-seated bias against the Jewish state.

Around 35 percent of all resolutions and decisions approved by the U.N.’s Human Rights Council target Israel, Bayefsky said, noting, “That’s anti-Semitism.”

Additionally, 50 percent of the emergency sessions held by the U.N.’s General Assembly (G.A.) over the past 60 years “were convened to denounce Israel,” Bayefsky said, pointing out that no such session has been called “on any other state in other thirty years.”

In 2013, 70 percent of the G.A. resolutions targeting a specific country for human rights abuses focused on Israel, she said, adding that this is further proof of the U.N.’s anti-Semitic agenda.

The organization’s latest bid to delegitimize Israel focuses on accusing the Jewish state of war crimes in its most recent conflict with Gaza, Bayefsky said.

“Today U.N. anti-Semitism has taken yet one more treacherous turn. The U.N. has launched a legal pogrom against the Jewish state,” she said. “Hired guns, posing as independent arbiters, like William Schabas are appointed to discover what they’ve already found. Guilty!”

“Phony legal rules misinterpret proportionality to favor a more even number of dead Israelis,” she continued. “The Iron Dome [missile defense system] worked too well! And the International Criminal Court is poised to pounce.”

“Serious about never again?” she asked. “Then never forget that the perversion of the legal system is how genocide begins. A legal pogrom serves as a license to kill.”

This is not a priority for the UN, this is THE agenda to use ISIS as a new global enemy.

September 1, 2014

On September 1, 2014 the UN Human Rights Council held a "special session" on Iraq. The session - pushed by the Obama administration as doing something in response to the horrific terrorist rampage across Syria and Iraq - was supposed to address "the human rights situation in Iraq in light of abuses committed by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and associated groups."

The resolution that was adopted by the Council at the end of the special session is seriously flawed. Despite the obvious urgency of the ISIS threat, the resolution requests a report on violations of human rights law in Iraq for presentation seven months from now in March 2015. The text - pushed by the United States among others - congratulates the UN and Iraqi partners (ie the United States) for helping the Iraqi national authorities, notwithstanding the horrors already endured, and the continuing onslaught against Yazidis, Christians and other minorities. The resolution focuses on Iraq and never mentions ISIS operations in Syria, as if the terrorist organization recognizes state boundaries.

For many participants, the special session became an opportunity to focus on a new ISIS victim: Islam. Various states and the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) were primarily worried that atrocities committed by ISIS would reflect badly on Islam:
  • OIC: "The Secretary-General of the OIC has expressed himself several times on the situation in Iraq...Terrorism has no religion...he noted with surprise and regret impetuous statements on the subject of Islam and Muslims emanating from certain European leaders and called on them to examine their own consciousnesses."
  • Algeria: "Islam has no connection whatsoever with similar crimes."
  • Saudi Arabia: "This behavior has nothing to do with Islam...Muslims are in fact first prime victims of this."
  • Kuwait: "It is regrettable that this organization is associating with Islam... Islam is totally innocent...Islam is a religion that abhors fanaticism."
Cuba and Venezuela used this occasion to blame the United States for the atrocities committed in Iraq:
  • Cuba: "The situation in Iraq and wider Middle East whose root causes are intrinsically linked to illegal and unjustified aggression unleashed on this fraternal Arab nation in 2003 by the government of the US acting together with some of its allies from NATO and it is they who are actually responsible for sowing the seeds of death, hunger political chaos among the Iraqi people."
  • Venezuela: "No mention has been made of its [situation in Iraq] link with illegal Anglo-US invasion of 2003 supported by NATO allies. For 10 years they tormented civil war ...plunging the country into chaos."
Some of the worst abusers of human rights and sponsors of terrorism used the session to cast themselves as human rights and counter-terrorism champions:
  • China, which notoriously violates freedom of religion on a daily basis, complained of violations of "rights of religious minorities" and the "right to religious belief."
  • Misogynistic Iran "condemned" "crimes against women, children".
  • Ecuador compared the suffering of the Iraqis to the "suffering" of the "government of Syria" - "I would like to express our solidarity with the government of Syria who are suffering the same as Iraqis from terrorist groups."
Overall, the session and the resolution brought into stark relief the difference between the UN attitude towards terrorists that harm Muslim states, as limited as it may be, and those that target Israel - who are routinely excused and encouraged.

Le Conseil oecuménique, comme vous pouvez le lire vous-même, demande au Conseil des droits de l'homme, qui est maintenant complètement islamisé de soutenir les minorité religieuses en Irak. Mais sur cela, c'est le silence complet car cela compromettrait cette islamisation globale sous le règne de Lucifer. Nous avons vu comment l'Eglise de Rome et l'Islam sont intimement lié dans cette transition et comment ils l'imposent au monde. L'Etat islamique, comme ils l'appellent est créé par les Jésuites et le Vatican/ le Pape, le faux-prophète, et mis en application par l'Antichrist Obama.

Ce ramassi de nazistes et de satanistes déguisés en leaders religieux pour mieux tromper les peuples ne font pas appel  au secours du seul qui pourrait aider ses réfugiés et ses minorités religieuses, c'est-à-dire à Yahwé qui est venu sur Terre, il y a 2000 ans pour renouer l'Alliance qu'il a fait avec les hommes au tout début des temps. On se tourne vers un  gouvernement qui contrôle maintenant toutes les nations et qui étend sa griffe dans tous les domaines.

On parle d'une mission pour établir un rapport sur ce que vivent les communautés minoritaires du nord de l'Irak persécutées par l'«État islamique». Quelle hypocrisie mensongère, alors que les Nations Unies, le Vatican et le COE n'ont qu'un seul but qui est de celui de détruire ce monde pour en rebâtir un nouveau. Cette démarche sera donc stérile pour ce qui est d'apporter une aide réelle aux personnes pris au piège, et qui pendant ce temps vivent dans des conditions misérables et qui meurent les uns après les autres.

D'un autre côté, on a l'ONU qui demande des fonds pour aider les déplacés irakiens https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQlf5TsSmfo . Derrière ce projet, on voit qu'on demande aux populations de fournir des sous pour l'installation de camps de réfugiés = camp de concentration, des médicaments = vaccins empoisonnés, et de la nourriture = OGM. Mais les vrais chrétiens, eux qui voudraient porter aide et secours par eux-mêmes sont tenus bien loin et on ne nous demande aucune aide. L'Eglise et l'Etat contrôlent tout. Tout ce que nous voyons dans différents sites contrôlées par le système religieux est une demande d'argent, qui comme nous le savons sert, la plupart du temps, à faire avancer leur agenda de contrôle global et à payer les agents espions qui se rendent sur le terrain. Avec le nombre d'Eglises associés à cette Babylone, on peut prévoir qu'une levée de fonds dans les différentes religions sera faite très prochainement, ce qui rapportera des milliards de dollars au Vatican et à l'ONU.

02 septembre 2014
Version française publiée le: 04 septembre 2014

Dans une déclaration, le Conseil œcuménique des Églises (COE) a demandé au Conseil des droits de l'homme des Nations Unies de mandater de toute urgence une mission pour établir, avec le rapporteur spécial sur la liberté de religion ou de conviction, un rapport sur ce que vivent les communautés minoritaires du nord de l'Irak persécutées par l'«État islamique».

La déclaration de la Commission des Églises pour les affaires internationales (CEAI) du COE intervient dans le sillage de la visite d'une délégation de l'organisation dans la région du Kurdistan irakien.

Peter Prove, directeur de la CEAI, qui emmenait la délégation en Irak, a déclaré à son retour: «Nous avons pu parler avec un grand nombre de personnes déplacées originaires de Mossoul, de la plaine de Ninive et d'autres lieux aujourd'hui entre les mains de l'État islamique, et nous avons pu consigner leurs témoignages.»

Peter Prove a ajouté: «Leurs récits décrivent la brutalité, la violence, la coercition et la répression inhumaines exercées par l'État islamique pour éliminer toute forme de diversité dans la société à l'échelle de la région.» Il a notamment insisté sur la nécessité d'un «engagement clair de la communauté internationale à maintenir et protéger la diversité religieuse en Irak».

La déclaration du COE appelle le Conseil des droits de l'homme à agir en faveur d'une intensification de l'aide humanitaire aux populations déplacées et appelle de ses vœux une nouvelle résolution contraignante du Conseil de sécurité contenant des mesures efficaces pour priver l'État islamique de tout appui financier et matériel.

La déclaration a été présentée à la session extraordinaire du Conseil des droits des l'homme de l’ONU sur la situation en Irak, qui s'est tenue le lundi 1er septembre à l'Office des Nations Unies à Genève (Suisse).

La déclaration attire l'attention sur le sort de la centaine de personnes qui sont de source sûre restées à Karakoch, une ville tombée aux mains de l'État islamique. «Ces personnes sont bel et bien prisonnières [...] Nous allons transmettre au Haut-Commissariat aux droits de l'homme une liste que nous avons reçue, contenant les noms de certaines de ces personnes, afin que le système des Nations Unies puisse accorder à ces cas toute l'attention urgente possible», indique la déclaration.

À partir des conclusions établies par la visite de la délégation du COE en Irak, la déclaration met en exergue la situation des femmes. «Nous craignons particulièrement pour les femmes et les filles parmi ces populations, dans la mesure où nous avons entendu dire que des femmes sont mises en cage puis achetées et vendues comme esclaves par des combattants de l'État islamique.»

En Irak, la délégation du COE a rencontré des personnes déplacées appartenant aux communautés chrétienne, yézidi et kakaï (soufis), ainsi que des responsables d'Église. Elle a pu constater que des initiatives ont été mises en place par des ONG locales pour distribuer aux personnes déplacées des denrées alimentaires et articles non alimentaires essentiels. Les membres de la délégation ont en outre rencontré des personnes dans des camps et abris d'urgence fournis par les Églises locales.

Violations des droits de l'homme

Au-delà de la crise humanitaire en Irak, le COE manifeste son inquiétude à l'égard de la souffrance collective des minorités religieuses et des conséquences à long terme de ces événements. «L'État islamique est en train de détruire – et, dans les zones qu'il contrôle, il a déjà effectivement détruit – la présence et l'identité même des minorités religieuses, en mettant en pièces le tissu social et le legs de la coexistence interreligieuse dans la région.»

La déclaration souligne que la ville de Mossoul, où vivent des chrétiens depuis l'aube du christianisme, a été vidée de sa population chrétienne autochtone, tandis que les églises, monastères et textes sacrés ont été la cible de destructions systématiques.

«La neutralisation de la capacité militaire agressive de l'État islamique et l'éradication de son idéologie néfaste doivent être une priorité absolue pour l'ensemble de la communauté internationale mais surtout pour nos frères, sœurs et amis fidèles de l'islam, au nom duquel l'État islamique commet ses atrocités», lit-on dans la déclaration.

La déclaration appelle par ailleurs instamment à «mettre fin à la culture de l'impunité en Irak et dans l'ensemble de la région» et propose la mise en place d'un tribunal spécial pour juger les crimes de guerre et crimes contre l'humanité en Irak et en Syrie.

Le COE, qui représente 345 Églises membres dans le monde entier, a exprimé à plusieurs reprises sa solidarité avec les chrétiens, les yézidis et les membres d'autres communautés religieuses et ethniques d'Irak aux prises avec la violence de l'État islamique.

Dans un appel lancé au secrétaire général de l'ONU Ban Ki-moon, la secrétaire générale associée du COE Isabel Apawo Phiri avait demandé de «veiller à la protection physique de tous les individus qui s'y trouvent et défendre leurs droits fondamentaux, y compris le droit à la liberté religieuse».

British Muslim leaders have called on Prime Minister David Cameron and other politicians to stop referring to the militant jihadist group as the “Islamic State” and have instead suggested the media and politicians begin using the name the “Un-Islamic State.” They even offered a new acronym, UIS.

In a letter to Cameron dated Sunday, leaders of prominent Muslim groups in the UK including the Islamic Society of Britain and the Association of Muslim Lawyers echoed President Barack Obama’s description of the terrorist group that has beheaded three westerners in recent weeks as being neither representative of Islam nor resembling a state.

“We do not believe the terror group responsible should be given the credence and standing they seek by styling themselves ‘Islamic State.’ It is neither Islamic, nor is it a State,” the British Muslim leaders wrote. “The group has no standing with faithful Muslims, nor among the international community of nations.”

“So we believe the media, civic society and governments should refuse to legitimize these ludicrous Caliphate fantasies by accepting or propagating this name,” the Muslim leaders wrote to Cameron.

“We propose that ‘Un-Islamic State’ (UIS) could be an accurate and fair alternative name to describe this group and its agenda – and we will begin to call it that,” the letter stated.

The Muslim leaders suggested convening a debate to “build a consensus” for an “alternative label” for politicians, the media and non-governmental organizations to use instead of the Islamic State “to ensure that we do not lend legitimacy to an organization that has none.”

“We are sure that most British Muslims would agree that Un-Islamic State is a considerably more fitting label for this poisonous group – and hope that our fellow citizens will join us in that,” the Muslim leaders wrote.

Both British security services and Muslim leaders are struggling to find a way to curb the travel of Muslim youths to Syria to fight in the ranks of the Islamic State group working to establish a caliphate first in Syria and Iraq and then beyond. British media have estimated that as many as 800 local Muslims have answered the call to jihad and made their way to Syria. If true, that would mean there are currently more British Muslims fighting with the Islamic State than with the British armed forces.

Islamic State extremists released a video Saturday showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines.
Cameron condemned the killing as “an act of pure evil.” = Yeah sure...

“We shall take every opportunity to continue to say clearly and loudly not in our name and not for our faith,” the Muslim leaders wrote. “We know that we all need to do more – and we need your help too in getting this message across.”

In his speech last week to announce his new strategy to combat the Islamic State group, Obama said, “Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”

Your idols (little gods) who rebels against the Lord won't save you.

"Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.
Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, United States, Useful idiots, willful ignorance

This will be interesting. The Islamic State preaches and practices the same Islam that the Saudis have been spending billions to spread throughout the world for decades. The idea that this vision of Islam is un-Islamic is an absurd politically correct fiction, unsupported by the Qur’an, Muhammad’s example, Islamic law, Islamic tradition, and Islamic history. Muslim countries that may join this effort against the Islamic State don’t have a different understanding of Islam, they just don’t fully implement Islamic law. They may join the coalition for pragmatic reasons: Egypt threw off its Islamic government last year and is still moving against the Muslim Brotherhood, and may see action against the Islamic State as a prudent move to neutralize Islamic supremacists at home, and rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey may want to take out a competitor for the caliphate — which is not to say that either is certain or even likely to join the coalition. The point is that if they do, they will not be able to offer “the real Islam” as an alternative to the Islamic State’s version, and will not do so.

Ironically, I found this in The Weekly Standard, where the article about Kerry’s remarks concludes: “Five years out from his Cairo speech and conflict bubbling up through the Middle East and the world, the reality on the ground may be far from what the president hoped or anticipated, but the rhetoric is unchanged: Islamic extremism is not real Islam. Given the rise of ISIL, the Boko Haram, and the continued tenacity of al Qaeda, President Obama may find this message to be an increasingly hard sell.” Maybe he will, although he seems good at ignoring reality. The funny is that for years, The Weekly Standard insisted that “Islamic extremism is not real Islam,” and resisted all discussion and debate about this issue. It is good to see reality breaking through even there.

“Roundtable Discussion With Press in Paris,” Remarks by John Kerry, Paris, France, September 15, 2014 (thanks to The Weekly Standard):

Now, as I said today – you guys weren’t in there, but I said it in this meeting – the military piece is one piece. It’s one component of this. It’s a critical component, but it’s only one component. And the truth is, equally – probably far more important than the military in the end is going to be what countries are able to do to help Iraq to be able to step up and other places, by the way, to step up and start drying up this pool of jihadis who get seduced into believing there’s some virtue in crossing into Syria to fight or to join ISIL. And a young nine-year-old kid who goes with his father and his mother and holds up the severed head of someone. I mean, that’s just beyond imagination. And what this effort has to do is literally dry up the money, dry up the foreign fighters, prevent the foreign fighters from going home back to various places to do harm. It has to start major efforts to delegitimize ISIS’s claim to some religious foundation for what it’s doing and begin to put real Islam out there and draw lines throughout the region.
And I think this is a wake-up call with respect to that because every Arab leader there today was talking about this, about real Islam and how important the Friday sermons are and where they need to go. Those are critical components of this strategy. Getting logistics, airlift, putting humanitarian assistance in, flying it in, ammunition, equipment, training, advisers – all of these roles are the totality and you have to be able to describe this in a logistic way – in a holistic way.

The light years between the UN “human rights” machinery and genuine human rights is pretty obvious.

UNHRC. (photo credit:Reuters)

The UN Human Rights Council held a special session in Geneva on July 23, 2014 to declare effectively that Israelis do not have human rights.

The session ended with a resolution that launched an "investigation" into what the Council decided in advance were Israel's violations of Palestinian rights. The vote was 29 in favor, 1 against and 17 abstentions.

The Obama administration voted against – after joining and legitimizing the virulently anti-Jewish Council for the past five years, and now feigning disappointment for American cameras.

The Europeans abstained because they did not want to upset their violent Muslim minorities, and with their sordid past, the resolution's message wasn't too foreign in any case. A few cowardly countries that Israelis have magnanimously befriended over the years also abstained.

But the majority of the UN world cheered – literally. Speakers during the procession of hatemongers at the Council were greeted with applause.

As is their wont, CNN, The New York Times and company derived from this spectacle the lesson that Israel is pathetic, isolated and doomed. But the real takeaway is the polar opposite.

Israel really is a light unto the nations.

The light years between the UN “human rights” machinery and genuine human rights is actually pretty obvious. At least to folks without years of foreign policy wonking, diplomatic double-talk language schooling, or blinkered war correspondence training.

Here is how it went down.

The “Human Rights” Council session on Gaza was presided over by President Baudelaire Ndong Ella of Gabon, a member of the Islamic bloc of states (OIC), and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay. Pillay retires in August after six years dedicated to the demonization of Israel.

A native of Durban, South Africa, Pillay spent her time in office championing the racist anti-racism conference that took place in her hometown in 2001 (after Durban’s mayor requested that she resurrect the city’s good name). She choreographed the second and third UN Durban conferences in 2009 and 2011 that “reaffirmed” the Israel-is-racist canard.

Pillay also initiated, and subsequently became the lead spokesperson for, the 2009 slanderous UN Goldstone report. Though Goldstone himself later recanted the charge, the report accused Israel of deliberately targeting Palestinian civilians the last time Israel had the audacity to mount a sustained response to the Hamas killing machine in Gaza.

In short, Pillay was bent on leaving office with a bang. Along with Durban II and III, Goldstone I and II would be her anti-human rights legacy.

Pillay opened the Council session on July 23, 2014. For her, “suffering” was a description applicable only to Palestinians. She carefully presented the charge of “crimes against humanity” – knowing full well that the image projected was one of Israelis as the new Nazis.

She simultaneously called for an investigation to discern the facts and recounted a list of supposed Israeli-driven horrors, like killing children while their pious parents prepared for Muslim rituals. She summed up Israeli operations in Gaza as having “inflicted” “unimaginable death, destruction, terror and life-long consequences.”

The feeding frenzy that followed her at the UN’s highest human rights body was raw unadulterated antisemitism. It was a verbal blitz timed to coincide with the blitz of Hamas rocket attacks that Israelis were experiencing from the skies.

The Council session revealed – for the umpteenth time – that these offensives are a continuation of the rejection of a Jewish state, period. Or in the words of Palestinian foreign minister Riyad Maliki himself at the Council, first came the “Israeli atrocities of 1948.”

Maliki went on to charge Israel with having “exterminated” Palestinians. His language included: “the smell of death is pursuing Palestinian children because of Israel…who have transformed children into shreds…while they tried to escape the machinery of death.”

Over and over again the despicable antisemitic analogy of Israelis to Nazis was repeated, along with maniacal claims from a parade of human rights abusers. Algeria said “Gaza is a concentration camp.” Sudan said Israel had a “policy of ethnic cleansing and genocide.”

Iran claimed Israel was engaged in “massacres and crimes against humanity.” Venezuela said “Israel seeks to exterminate the Palestinian people.” Tunisia said “Israel was born out of Jewish terrorism and is acting in Gaza like the Nazis.” And then there were charges of “barbaric, inhuman acts,” “heinous massacres,” and “crimes unparalleled in recent history.”

In the end, the Human Rights Council’s resolution “deplores” and “condemns in the strongest terms” Israel’s “grave,” “widespread, systematic, and gross” “violations of human rights.” The word “Hamas” is never mentioned. And the UN launched a second Goldstone-like inquiry – another “human rights” investigation into “violations of law in the occupied Palestinian territory” – not Israeli territory of course.

Goldstone II joins the voluminous UN anti-Israel mechanisms already in operation, such as: the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People; the UN Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People; the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories; the UN Division for Palestinian Rights, and the UN Information System on the Question of Palestine.

On top of that, Goldstone I is still alive and kicking. It generates annual reports by the UN human rights commissioner, produced as recently as January 13, 2014. And it spawns annual resolutions by the Human Rights Council calling for its implementation, adopted as recently as March 28, 2014.

Before the vote on the resolution, the UN staff announced that the initial price tag for Goldstone II will be $2,321,500 – twenty-two percent of which will come from the American taxpayer, thanks to Obama’s ownership of the Council.

Just on June 19, 2014, Keith Harper, US Ambassador to the Council gushed: “The Obama Administration decided to seek membership because the United States believes the Council can make a difference. And on July 3, 2014 he claimed: “the most powerful tool we wield at the Human Rights Council is information – the ability to bring into stark focus the realities of injustice and abuse in the world…[T]he United Nations Human Rights Council is making a difference.”

What difference is it making?

There have been twice as many urgent debates and special sessions of the Council on Israel in its entire eight-year lifespan than there have been on Syria with upwards of 200,000 dead.

There has never been a single special session on a place like Iran or China or Russia. One-third of all the resolutions and decisions critical of a single state – for all 193 UN members – have been directed at Israel alone.

There has never been a single resolution on a place like Saudi Arabia or Cuba. So the difference the UN’s top human rights body is making is the perversion and defeat of human rights – the human rights of Israelis and the human rights of the Jewish people. We are witnessing a terrible acquiescence to the suffering of the nation of Israel, a nation dedicated to life, freedom and equality.

A nation committed to profound spirituality and compassion for all humankind.

Abandon Israel at the peril of all human decency.

The UN is lost. It is not too late for America. = It was just one more hypocrisy for America

When the people of Israel exercise their inherent right of self-defense, they are forced to withstand an additional onslaught from today’s morally bankrupt United Nations.

Navi Pillay 311 R. (photo credit:Christian Hartmann / Reuters)

The 20th century job description of the United Nations was “to maintain international peace and security” based on “the sovereign equality of all its members,” and to do “nothing [to] impair the inherent right of self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a member of the UN.” 

But the UN of the 21st century has an exception clause. Every time Israel is attacked, not only does the UN fail to maintain peace and security – it attempts to gut Israel’s inherent right of self-defense.

In accordance with this pathology, UN actors manufacture a cycle of violence that begins with Israeli aggression; assert a moral equivalence between Arab terrorists and their Israeli victims; and concoct a litany of Israeli human rights abuses. They conclude that Israeli actions in self-defense are crimes, and Israel’s enemies are understandably, if a tad too fervently, protecting human rights.

Ceasefires are just opportunities to shift gears from alleging crimes to demanding punishments.

The events of the past week have been a textbook demonstration of this toxic formula.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) issued a “situation report” on July 9, 2014. It provides a “background on the crisis” that states:  “the latest escalation round started on 11 June when Israeli forces targeted and killed an alleged member of an armed group, along with a child accompanying him, and Palestinian factions responded by shooting rockets at southern Israel.”

OCHA could have started with something else that occurred on June 11, 2014 – a rocket sent from Gaza that narrowly missed a main artery in southern Israel.  Or the UN body might have started with the rocket attacks perpetrated by the targeted Hamas operative himself, such as the rocket shot at Sderot on April 21, 2014.  Or it could have chosen any of the other 200 rockets fired into Israel in the first six months of 2014.

Alternatively, a “background on the crisis” could have begun at the beginning, with uninterrupted violent Arab rejection of a Jewish state from the moment of Israel’s creation.

Instead, the UN body chose the routine of “it all started when he hit me back.”

Next on the bandwagon came Navi Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Pillay is responsible for hatching the infamous Goldstone inquiry, together with the UN Human Rights Council, at a special Council session in January 2009. Goldstone’s report claimed Israel was deliberately targeting Palestinian civilians, as opposed to defending itself from 8,000 rocket and mortar attacks launched from Gaza over eight years.  Though Goldstone himself later retracted the slanderous charge, Pillay remained an enthusiastic supporter.

Evidently, Pillay has been hoping to repeat history. On July 3, 2014, Pillay told journalists in Vienna “I utterly condemn these rocket attacks and more especially I condemn Israel’s excessive acts of retaliation.” Then, on July 11, 2014 Pillay expressed “serious doubt about whether the Israeli strikes have been in accordance with international law” and called for an “independent” investigation. 

Right on cue, on July 11, 2014 the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called for a special meeting of the UN Human Rights Council “to investigate Israel’s crimes.” 

And then there’s UNRWA, the UN Palestinian refugee agency. Director of Gaza Operations, Robert Turner, said on July 10, 2014 that he both “condemned indiscriminate rocket fire from Gaza…and the use of force by Israeli security forces on Gaza that cause civilian casualties in violation of international humanitarian law.”  On July 14, 2014 UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl went even further, stating in a press briefing: “I urgently call on the Israeli Security Forces to put an end to attacks against, or endangering, civilians…”

The allegation that Israel is targeting or attacking civilians is a vile and incendiary falsehood.

In addition, the Geneva Conventions on the laws of war do not outlaw “an attack which may be expected to cause incidental loss of civilian life.” The test is one of proportionality between the loss of civilian life or injury expected and “the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated.” The application of this rule requires tangible facts of no interest to UN choreographers.

International law does, however, outlaw the use of human beings “in attempts to shield military objectives from attacks or to shield, favor or impede military operations.” The cause of a human shield’s death is the person using the shield – just as the cause of the death of a hostage shot by police in the course of a kidnapping is the kidnapper – not the police.

Ironically, the July 9, 2014 OCHA report confirms that Palestinian civilians are serving as human shields, for it asserts both that civilians casualties have mainly occurred during the destruction of residential properties and that “prior to the attacks residents have been warned to leave.”  

Also jumping onboard was UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, playing a similar blame game. In a statement released on July 8, 2014, he said he “is extremely concerned” about the “multiple Palestinian deaths and injuries as a result of Israeli operations in Gaza.”

In Israel’s case, the Secretary-General could find no moral daylight between a terrorist organization and a democratic society. At a briefing to the Security Council on July 10, 2014, he said there were “cycles of violence,” and “attacks on both sides.” In his view, “Palestinian civilians are caught between Hamas’s irresponsibility and Israel’s tough response.”

Terrorism is not “irresponsibility” – it’s evil. The Hamas Charter says: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it.”  Palestinian civilians are hooked on a Palestinian government committed to genocide and acting to fulfill its stated mission. And yes, the intended victim is not prepared to go gently into the night.

At the top of the UN heap came the Security Council, which hurriedly convened on July 10 and 12, 2014 at the request of the Palestinians, the Arab League, the OIC, and the Non-Aligned Movement (now headed by Iran).

During the July 10, 2014 session Palestinian representative Riyad Mansour demonstrated the very intolerance at the root of the Arab-Israeli conflict. He told the Council Israel was “racist, aggressive, expansionist, lack[ing] respect for the sanctity of life,” a “so-called democracy,” “ruthless,” “insane,” and “inhumane.” For good measure, he added: “we reject the claims of self-defense by Israel.”

Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor asked the Council to condemn Hamas, terrorism and the rocket fire, to call on Abbas to dissolve the unity government, and support Israel’s right to defend itself. Mansour demanded that the Council call for “an immediate ceasefire” – that is, time for Palestinians to regroup and rearm for the next round of terrorist attacks.

In a mere two days, the Palestinians won on all counts.

On July 12, 2014 the Security Council issued a unanimous “press statement” calling for a ceasefire and making no mention of rockets, or terrorism, or Hamas, or Israel’s right of self-defense. The Security Council press statement equates Israel with a terrorist organization by pointing to an all-round failure to protect “civilians on both sides.”

Most disturbing was that the press statement would not have been issued without American approval. This means that President Obama decided rapidly to add his weight to the mountain of UN invective.

It also means Israel’s ceasefire calculus – while Hamas is still dangerously operational – had to include the possibility that President Obama would not veto a harmful Security Council resolution with more binding authority.

When the people of Israel exercise their inherent right of self-defense, they are forced to withstand an additional onslaught from today’s morally bankrupt United Nations.

That mob should not include the President of the United States.

MessagePosté le: Dim 5 Oct - 23:23 (2014)    Sujet du message: POUR LE TRIBUNAL RUSSEL, ISRAEL EST COUPABLE DE CRIMES CONTRE L'HUMANITE Répondre en citant


  Coordinateur du Tribunal Russell sur la Palestine de 2008 à 2013, Frank Barat rapporte pour Mediapart les conclusions de la session extraordinaire de ce tribunal citoyen qui s’est tenue les 24 et 25 septembre derniers à Bruxelles, pour examiner la récente opération Bordure protectrice conduite par Israël dans la bande de Gaza

Le 8 juillet 2014, le gouvernement israélien, par l’intermédiaire de son premier ministre Benjamin Netanyahu, donne ordre à son armée de lancer l’opération « Bordure Protectrice ». Utilisant le meurtre de trois jeunes colons israéliens commis un mois plus tôt comme prétexte et annonçant que le but de cette opération était de mettre fin aux tirs de roquettes du Hamas, Israël s’en va-t’en guerre.

Pour la troisième fois en six ans, une offensive de grande envergure contre la bande de Gaza se met en marche.

Les grands médias internationaux, dans une écrasante majorité, au moins durant les premiers jours, mettent eux aussi le fusil à l’épaule. Très peu d’entre eux, pour ne pas dire aucun, rappellent le contexte politique et historique dans lequel s’inscrit cette offensive. On ne parle pas de l’occupation israélienne en place depuis 1967 malgré des dizaines de résolutions des Nations Unies appelant à sa fin. On ne rappelle pas que les roquettes du Hamas et des factions palestiniennes étaient quasiment inexistantes depuis des mois avant qu’Israël, suite au kidnapping des trois colons israéliens, utilise ce prétexte pour ravager la Cisjordanie pendant plus de 3 semaines, dans leur prétendue recherche du corps des trois colons. Arrestations en masse de membres du Hamas, re-arrestations de prisonniers palestiniens venant tout juste d’être relâchés, répression terrible sur les manifestants palestiniens, causant la mort de plusieurs mineurs, réoccupation de Ramallah, démolitions de maisons et siège de la ville de Hébron.

Si le mot « prétexte » est utilisé plus haut, c’est que le gouvernement israélien savait, depuis le début, que les trois jeunes colons avaient été assassinés le jour même de leur enlèvement. La plupart des grands médias, aussi, était au courant. Comme le gouvernement, ils avaient eu accès à un enregistrement qui ne laissait place au doute : les trois adolescents israéliens avaient perdu la vie le 12 juin 2014. Mais eux aussi ont préféré jouer le jeu. Quelques semaines plus tard, le porte-parole de la police israélienne, Micky Rosenfeld, déclare même  que «le directoire du Hamas n’est pas impliqué dans l’enlèvement et le meurtre des trois israéliens » (voir ici).

Enfin, le blocus de Gaza, en place depuis l’élection du Hamas en 2006, n’est jamais mentionné dans les médias. Un blocus qui va pourtant à l’encontre du droit international et des conventions de Genève. Un blocus illégal faisant office de punition collective et enfermant les palestiniens dans une prison à ciel ouvert. Israël, malgré le retrait de ses soldats et l’évacuation de ses colons de Gaza en 2005, occupe encore ce petit bout de territoire puisqu’il en contrôle le registre de la population (les entrées et les sorties), les « frontières » (Rafah étant contrôlée par l’Egypte), ainsi que l’espace aérien et maritime. En droit international, la présence physique n’est pas nécessaire pour qu’il y ait « occupation ».

Le 9 juillet 2014, le président de la république française, François Hollande, exprime lui aussi son soutien inconditionnel à Benjamin Netanyahu. Il déclare lui avoir assuré par téléphone « la solidarité de la France face aux tirs de roquettes », que « la France condamne fermement les agressions contre Israël » et qu’il « appartient au gouvernement israélien de prendre toutes les mesures pour protéger sa population face aux menaces ». = Pure hypocrisie de la France et de François Hollande, alors qu'un islam radical avance à grand pas en France, et que
les responsables juifs, chrétiens et musulmans des différentes communautés religieuses, sous le thème de "RASSEMBLEMENT ET ENGAGEMENT POUR LA PAIX  - PLACE BELLECOUR"  http://www.cdo-lyon.cef.fr/spip.php?article1944 . LES SIGNATAIRES DE L'APPEL DES 110 : "NOUS NOUS ENGAGEONS", en ce 1er octobre 2014, se sont unis pour l'avancée de la culture de la Paix, qui est la mise en place de la culture de l'Islam, en France http://www.cdo-lyon.cef.fr/spip.php?article1943 . Et comme François Hollande est un chanoine de Rome, et que la France est la fille ainée du Vatican, il est clair qu'il ne fera rien pour arrêter le carnage qui vient sur la France et que son soutien à Israël n'est que pure comédie.

François Hollande est au plus bas dans les sondages, il veut donner l’image d’un président fort, va-t’en guerre, même si ce n’est pas la sienne, et tient un discours plus proche de George W. Bush que d’un président « socialiste ». Pense-t-il rallier ainsi les Français derrière lui et Israël ?

S’il le croit, il se trompe. Le président français parle de « France » dans son message à Netanyahu. Mais quelle France ? La France, son peuple, est dehors, dans la rue, par milliers, centaines de milliers, jour après jour. Malgré les interdictions de manifester (les seules en place au monde à ce moment-là), malgré la répression des forces de police et malgré les arrestations, des foules de plus en plus nombreuses prennent les rues pour crier leur dégoût face aux actions de l’armée israélienne et leur colère devant le soutien complice de l’Etat français. 

Et c’est le monde entier qui est secoué par une même vague de protestation. Pendant les 50 jours de cette opération, les peuples se soulèvent aux quatre coins du globe pour appeler à la fin de l’agression israélienne sur Gaza.

Une attaque qui dans les faits tourne au massacre. La bande de Gaza et son 1,8 million d’habitants n’ont pas subi telle violence depuis 1967.

Cet été, 700 tonnes de munitions se sont abattues sur une population enfermée, qui ne peut s’enfuir et ne reçoit, malgré ses appels au secours, aucune aide. Les chiffres sont effrayants (2 188 Palestiniens ont perdu la vie dont 1 658 civils ; plus de 11 231 Palestiniens furent gravement blessés ; plus de 18 000 maisons furent détruites entièrement ou en partie). Mais cela reste des chiffres. La réalité est encore plus terrible. Aujourd’hui à Gaza, un enfant de 8 ans a déjà connu 4 guerres. Aujourd’hui à Gaza, ce sont 370 000 enfants qui ont besoin de soutien psychologique (l’équivalent, proportionnellement à la population, de 12 millions enfants en France).

Que faire ? Comment réagir ? Comment soutenir et accompagner les gens qui manifestent ? Est-il suffisant d’envoyer des lettres ? Des pétitions ? De Twitter ? Au Royaume-Uni et en Australie, certains activistes vont plus loin et occupent, pour la mettre hors d’état de nuire, l’entreprise israélienne de fabrication d’arme Elbit System ; aux États-Unis, d’autres empêchent un bateau israélien de débarquer.

Les membres du Tribunal Russell, quant à eux, décident de se réunir de nouveau et d’organiser une session extraordinaire de ce tribunal des peuples sur les crimes de guerre israéliens à Gaza. Le tribunal sera le premier forum public à réunir témoins, experts juridiques, journalistes, universitaires et activistes pour parler de Gaza. La première enquête sur ce qui s’est vraiment passé sur place. Pour se souvenir. Pour ne pas oublier. Et surtout pour empêcher que cela se reproduise. Le tribunal, comme à son habitude, se veut pionnier. Il parlera, lors de cette session, du crime de génocide et de celui d’incitation au génocide. Pour ceux qui disent que le tribunal est un simulacre de procès, ou qu’il est un exercice symbolique seulement, il est bon de rappeler qu’Israël n’a jamais respecté les décisions des Nations Unies ni celles de la cour internationale de justice en 2004. Celles-ci n’ayant d’ailleurs pas été respectées non plus par les parties tierces (Etats, institutions, multinationales). Pour Israël, le droit international ne veut rien dire, il n’est rien. Devant le manque d’actions concrètes des Etats, il incombe donc au peuple de se faire « Jury ».

Durant toute une journée les témoins se succèdent pour parler de ce qu’ils ont vu sur place. Les membres du jury, Ken Loach, Vandana Shiva, Roger Waters, Michael Mansfield, Paul Laverty, Radhia Nasraoui, Christiane Hessel, Ronnie Kasrils, John Dugard, Richard Falk et Ahdaf Soueif écoutent, prennent des notes et questionnent, interrogent. La salle, remplie de personnes venant du monde entier, reste sans voix devant les mots et les images. Ceux qui se pensent immunisés à l’horreur et l’indignation, parce qu’ils en ont trop vu ou en savent trop, se trompent. L’intensité de la violence de l’opération « Bordure protectrice » dépasse les limites de l’entendement, de la raison.

Eran Efrati, ex-soldat israélien raconte en détails l’assassinat de Salem Shamaly par un sniper. Mohammed Omer, journaliste palestinien de Gaza, relate des exécutions sommaires de civils. Ivan Karakashian, évoque l’impact psychologique de ce massacre sur les enfants et du fait qu’Israël a pour habitude d’utiliser certains d’entre eux comme boucliers humains. Mads Gilbert, chirurgien norvégien et héroïque, nous explique que 17 des 32 hôpitaux de Gaza furent détruits. David Sheen, journaliste israélien, dresse un portrait effrayant, preuves à l’appui, d’une société israélienne, qui, soutenant cette guerre à 95%, va de plus en plus loin dans la déshumanisation des Palestiniens, appelant, de manière fréquente et sans fard, à l’extermination de ce peuple.

Le lendemain, après une longue nuit de délibération, le jury délivre son verdict : lors de l’opération « Bordure protectrice », Israël s’est rendu coupable de crimes de guerre (homicides intentionnels, destructions de biens non justifiées, attaques intentionnelles contre la population civile, les hôpitaux, les lieux de culte, les écoles, …), de crimes contre l’humanité (meurtres, persécutions et exterminations) et du crime d’incitation au génocide.

Les membres du jury ajoutent même qu’ils ont « sincèrement peur que dans un contexte d’impunité et d’absence de sanctions pour des crimes graves et répétés, les leçons du Rwanda et d’autres atrocités de masse restent lettre morte. »

Que les choses soient claires : c’est à nous, le peuple, les « sans-dents », d’écrire l’histoire car personne ne le fera pour nous.

L’équipe du site

Une conférence internationale en soutien à la résistance palestinienne s’est ouverte ce mardi à Téhéran, à laquelle ont participé une centaine de personnalités gouvernementales et religieuses iraniennes et étrangères.

Lors de son discours, le vice secrétaire général du Hezbollah, cheikh Naim Qassem, a assuré que Gaza a triomphé trois fois. "La dernière a ôté la légitimité de l’occupation", assure-t-il.

La résistance à Gaza a mené une grande bataille pour contrer l’agression israélienne. « Israël n’est plus cette entité qui fait peur au monde », l’assimilant à une toile d’araignée.

Cheikh Qassem a en outre affirmé qu’ « Israël » œuvre à séparer la région de son passé et de sa religion, d’où la nécessité que la Palestine reste la boussole de la Nation. « Si nous réussissons en Palestine, alors nous allons réussir dans toute la région », a dit M.Kassem. 

 S’agissant de la Syrie, il a affirmé que « les ennemis ont voulu frapper la Syrie en tant qu’Etat soutenant la résistance, mais ils ont échoué ».

Pour cheikh Qassem: « le Hezbollah n’a pas libéré des territoires au Liban seulement, mais il a changé l’équilibre de la force ».

Et de conclure: « Ceux qui justifient les actes des takfiristes sont leurs partenaires et les ennemis de l’Islam ».

De son côté, le secrétaire général du Jihad islamique en Palestine, Ramadan Challah, a affirmé que Gaza a vaincu l’ennemi israélien qui n’a pas pu réaliser ses objectifs lors de la guerre israélienne contre Gaza.

Et d’ajouter: «Israël est dans une impasse sans précédent. Il n’est plus capable de réaliser des victoires ou même de parvenir à un compromis ou à la PAIX ».

Il a enfin salué tous ceux qui ont soutenu la résistance à Gaza, citant en particulier la République Islamique d’Iran.

PLO secretary general Yasser Abed Rabbo says PA will push ahead with unilateral moves despite US threats to cut aid.

The Palestinian Authority will submit a draft resolution to the UN Security Council demanding Israel's withdrawal from Judea and Samaria by the end of October, a senior official said on Thursday.

The PA has been under intense pressure not to push forward with the resolution - including with alleged threats of cuts to US aid - but Palestine Liberation Organization secretary general Yasser Abed Rabbo said a decision was taken late Wednesday to push ahead.  

"The political council of the PLO decided during its meeting last night... to go to the UN Security Council with the aim of getting a resolution passed to end the Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories... by the end of this month," he said.

Voting could take place "two weeks or more after the request is presented," Abed Rabbo told a news conference in Ramallah. "There is no excuse for a delay."

Since the collapse of US-led peace talks with Israel in April, the Palestinians have been pursuing a new diplomatic path to independence via the United Nations and by joining international organisations, as part of a campaign of political warfare against Israel.

The PA won the symbolic status of UN observer state in 2012.

A draft of the resolution obtained by AFP earlier this month calls for the "full withdrawal of Israel, the occupying power, from all of the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, as rapidly as possible and to be fully completed within a specified timeframe, not to exceed November 2016."  

An initiative in the Security Council is sure to meet opposition from the United States, which has repeatedly vetoed resolutions seen as unfairly singling out Israel, or breaking PA commitments under previous agreements not to take unilateral steps.  

Abed Rabbo said he hoped the draft would at least survive long enough to be debated by the 15-member council, even if its chances of being carried were slim.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told visiting UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Monday that a Palestinian diplomatic offensive would "undermine" peace efforts.

Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas said earlier this month that the PA is risking $700 million a year in US aid by pursuing the resolution.  

He warned the Palestinians could also seek to join the International Criminal Court, where they could sue Israeli officials over allegations of war crimes. However, some (including the PA's own UN human rights envoy) have warned that move could prove a double-edged sword, and leave Palestinian factions open to Israeli prosecution for war crimes as well.

Analysis: While military understandings remain in tact despite tensions between Obama and Netanyahu governments, the political side remains fair game in American eyes.

Published: 11.01.14, 12:42 / Israel Opinion

When senior US administration officials say to you, "I won't be in town when you get here," they're actually saying, "It doesn't suit me to meet with you now." And sometimes, the response is a little more subtle: "I won't be in town, but let's coordinate your visit at a later date." In the case of Israeli Defense Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon, Washington experienced a mass exodus; all of a sudden, no one was home.
When Ya'alon departed, he was already aware that Washington wasn't waiting for him. All efforts to arrange meetings for him in keeping with diplomatic protocol – via the military attaché and the Israeli Embassy – were doomed to failure from the outset.
Not only is our ambassador in Washington, Ron Dermer, not the most popular figure at the White House, but Congress is in recess now, of all times, ahead of the elections.

Defense Minister Ya'alon (Photo: EPA)
When tensions between the White House and the government of Israel stem from political-ideological disputes, maintaining a semblance of business-as-usual is still possible. But when things spill over into the personal domain, the style and the insults become personal too.
Ya'alon wasn't able to pick up on this in his meetings with US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and America's ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. He learned instead of the intensity of the affront and resentment on the part of the Americans in the informal talks he held in Washington, particularly with senior media representatives. There, he was told exactly what Washington thinks about Jerusalem.
The possibility that the United States will not veto a UN resolution calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state in keeping with the 1967 borders is not a theoretical threat. Jerusalem has internalized the fact that this is a realistic option and is preparing for it.
The battle on the Hill

The White House has tired by now of hearing about anti-President Obama briefings at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's bureau in Jerusalem and the Israeli Embassy in Washington, about the badmouthing of Obama, and about Israel efforts to undermine US administration policy.
Official and non-official American guests – members of Congress, AIPAC officials and journalists – come to Israel, hear lectures from Israelis about their problematic president, and then return home to spill the beans.
Recent weeks have seen a further deterioration. From both Dermer's and Netanyahu's circles, according to the Americans, they are hearing statements to the tune of: "As from this Tuesday, Congress will be fully in the hands of the Republicans, and then we'll deal with issues such as the political initiative and the negotiations with Iran from the Hill."

Netanyahu with Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer (Photo: GPO)
As Washington sees it, the hostility towards President Obama in the Prime Minister's Office is firmly fixed in place. It's a mutual hostility. When someone in the Prime Minister's Office describes Obama as a novice, cowardly and indecisive, the White House hears of it right away, and barbs are fired in return.
Today, Netanyahu associates believe that the expression, "chickenshit," quoted by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, was a case of "premature ejaculation," and that's why the White House was quick to distance itself from it. The Americans had planned to launch an attack on Netanyahu only after the mid-term elections this Tuesday.
Israel is refusing to be banished to the corner. How, officials here are asking, can the secretary of state be trying to bribe Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas with far-reaching political commitments in return for the delaying of his appeal to the UN Security Council until after the elections to Congress? Can't, they're asking here, a superpower like the United States simply instruct Abbas to postpone such a move?
The defense minister, with whom the State Department has a separate score to settle for what it defines as "the sabotaging of Kerry's peace initiative," paid a price on his visit to Washington for his close ties with Netanyahu too. Ya'alon can take comfort in the fact that he's not the first Israeli defense minister to undergo a hazing in Washington.
In 1981, then-newly appointed U.S. defense secretary Caspar Weinberger taught Israel's defense minister at the time, Ariel Sharon, a lesson he'd never forget. Weinberger, who wasn't enamored with Israeli policy at the time, was forced, on instructions from then-president Ronald Reagan, to sign a memorandum of understanding with Israel.

Weinberger arranged, however, for the signing ceremony to take place not at the Pentagon but in the lobby of the National Geographic Society building. Sharon got the message, learned a lesson; and as prime minister, all the doors of the US administration remained open to him. We're unlikely to witness the repeat of a happy ending like that one with the personalities currently in the ring.
Sharon was still living in an era in which even during the most bitter crises between the two sides, there was always someone who'd travel secretly to Jerusalem or Washington to clean out the blocked sewage pipes. There's no one like that around today – not on the Israeli side, and not on the American side either. And with every blockage, the sewage rises a little more.
The Clinton plan in an Obama sauce

Ya'alon believed his differences with Secretary of State Kerry had been resolved. In the time since the crisis between the two erupted last summer, they have spoken on numerous occasions about the most sensitive of issues, including during the fighting in Gaza. He was under the impression that when he said he was sorry if anyone had been offended by his statements, Washington had seen it as a public apology. He was wrong. Washington wasn't appeased.
No wonder Ya'alon feels that the US administration has marked him as responsible for undermining progress in the talks with the Palestinians. The defense minister and his bureau are convinced that immediately upon presentation of Kerry's initiative, the State Department launched a media campaign against Ya'alon to depict him as an enemy of any peace settlement. Even paranoid people are right sometimes.
But Ya'alon's mission in Washington was one pertaining to money, and he insisted therefore on traveling to the United States at this inconvenient time. After the 2015 budget was settled, the defense minister had to get to a meeting with his counterpart, Hagel, to sum up the work conducted over the past year by joint taskforces with respect to the military equipment Israel will be purchasing in the United States in the framework of the defense aid package from Washington.

There were no surprises waiting for Ya'alon in this regard. The US administration upheld every single one of its security commitments to Israel. Moreover, the defense minister's entourage got the sense that the deeper the political dispute between the sides, the stronger America's commitment to its security ties with Israel.
Not a single aid program was canceled, aside from those that Israel itself asked to alter, like the acquisition of Namer armored personnel carriers instead of an investment in V-22 Osprey aircraft.
The US also allowed Israel to make purchases based on the aid packages for the coming years – a loan of sorts to help with the shopping. Thus, Israel can acquire six more F-35 fighter jets to make up a full squadron, with the first aircraft to be delivered in late 2016, as well as an additional 25-aircraft squadron beginning in 2019.
US teams are in Israel to study the lessons learned during Operation Protection; and Hagel and his staff were very upfront when it came to the Iranian issue too.
The agreement based on which the United States provides Israel with foreign aid to the tune of $3.1 billion a year comes to an end in 2017. Obama has undertaken verbally to extend this agreement for another decade. He has yet to sign a thing, and Israel, too, is in no hurry to ask him to do so – further evidence of the rocky relationship. We can wait, officials in Israel are saying; the next president, who will take office in January 2017, will also be able to sign.
All is on hold now until after this coming Tuesday, the mid-term elections. There's a very real chance that the president will lose his small majority in the Senate. Under such circumstances, the White House won't be able to implement additional internal reforms, and will therefore turn its attention to achievements in the foreign affairs arena. This would ensure another two tough years for Israel, until Obama leaves office.
Right now, waiting for us just around the corner is another political plan that is being cooked up by Kerry's negotiation team. On the agenda are three alternative plans. The one involves reopening the talks on the security issue and the borders and to try to move forward from where the discussions came to a halt in April this year.
The Americans have tried to go down this path on four occasions already – and they've failed; they're unlikely to have the appetite to go this route a fifth time.

The second involves serving up a new-improved Clinton plan in an Obama sauce, which half the coalition in Israel will refuse to eat, while the other half won't be able to live with turning it down.

The third alternative suggests putting all regional players onto the field under the cover of the political flak jacket of the Arab League. Then, however, the talks would be based on the Saudi peace initiative, substantial portions of which Israel rejects. 

However one looks at things, the Americans are again going to bash their heads up against the wall and take Israel on.

Working for the Good of the Human Family

Rome, November 02, 2014 (Zenit.org) Father John Flynn, LC 

While Pope Francis continues to draw the attention of the media worldwide, the Holy See’s activity in the United Nations goes largely unnoticed, in spite of the numerous interventions made in various meetings.

In his address to the UN General Assembly on Sept. 29 the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, expressed the hope that the newly inaugurated 69th session of the body would work together for a more fraternal and united world.

After mentioning a range of problems such as violence, terrorism, and a lack of respect for religious freedom Cardinal Parolin called for the promotion of a culture of PEACE.

In the succeeding weeks Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, has given a series of addresses to the UN on a variety of topics.

His Oct. 29 speech on human rights described the right to life as “the foundation of all human rights.” He also mentioned that along with threats to the right to life the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion was being challenged in many parts of the world.

“The right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion is an inalienable fundamental human right; thus, it has always been and will always be at the core of the struggle for the recognition and free exercise of fundamental human rights,” he stated.

The previous day Archbishop Auza addressed the topic of agriculture and food security. He drew attention to “the paradox that while so many die of hunger, an enormous quantity of food is wasted every day.”

He acknowledged the progress made in reducing the number of people who suffer from chronic hunger, but even with that hundreds of millions of people still do not have enough to eat.

Eradicating hunger is not only a goal of economic development, but a “moral imperative” he insisted.

Referring to the theme of this year’s World Food Day, “Family Farming: feeding the world, caring for the earth,” he said that “the family is key in the fight to end hunger,” and called for a recognition of the role of the family.


Globalization needs to benefit everybody Archbishop Auza declared in his Oct. 27 address on the theme of globalization and interdependence.

Globalization can bring great benefits, but it can also have negative effects on some groups, he mentioned. “Indeed, as with most human endeavors, globalization works for good or ill, depending on the underlying ethic and policies driving the process,” he said.

One challenge of globalization that he mentioned was that of migration, that raises many social, economic, and religious issues. Along with this is the growth in human trafficking and various forms of slavery.

“These modern forms of slavery are the opposite of a globalization driven by the culture of encounter and the values of SOLIDARITY and JUSTICE,” he declared.

On October 23 Archbishop Auza spoke on the theme of the eradication of poverty. He called for, “evidence-based policies and strategies to combat extreme poverty,” and for a greater degree of solidarity.

He also appealed for a greater inclusion of women in the development of their communities. “Excluding women and girls from education and subjecting them to violence and discrimination violate their inherent dignity and fundamental human rights,” he said.

The situation in the Middle East was another topic dealt with by the Holy See’s ambassador. On October 21 he spoke at a Security Council debate on this issue and explained what Pope Francis had been doing to call for the observance of international law and human rights in the region.

Referring to what he termed “the horrific situation in Syria,” he said that the Holy See “urgently calls on all parties to stop the massive violations of international humanitarian law and fundamental human rights, and on the international community to help the parties find a solution.”

Time for decisions

“With lessons learned from our failure to stop recent horrors of genocide and presently confronted with blatant, massive violations of fundamental human rights and of international humanitarian law, the time is for courageous decisions,” he concluded.

Regarding the 20th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development on October 9 Archbishop Auza explained that the Holy See is aware of the many challenges that exist to ensure economic and social development.

He recalled the need to “to promote and strengthen the family as a vital element toward producing greater social and economic development.”

He also warned against the promotion of ‘reproductive health rights’ detrimental to the unborn human life and the integral needs of women themselves.”

These interventions by the Holy See in the last month are only a part of the addresses and activities undertaken. While it may not make headlines, the engagement of the Catholic Church with representatives of the world’s nations is testimony of a deeply held responsibility to promote the common good of all humanity.

UN Security Council official claims talks could quell violence from Hamas, terrorists in Jerusalem - even if the facts say otherwise.

By Arutz Sheva Staff
First Publish: 11/17/2014, 7:15 PM

UN Security Council

A senior UN official warned the Security Council on Monday that violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories was likely to worsen without a quick return to peace talks, AFP reports Monday.

"Returning to negotiations has never been more important," UN Assistant-Secretary General Jens Toyberg-Frandzen told the 15-member council, during a meeting on the Middle East.

"Without a genuine commitment from the parties and an overall improvement in the lives of Palestinians, we should anticipate further deterioration of the security situation and an expansion of the current violence," he said.

It is unclear why the UN believes that the peace process will help rather than exacerbate violence in the capital. An Israel Security Agency (ISA) study revealed last year that terror only escalated since the latest round of peace talks began in 2013. 

The appeal followed a visit to the region last week by US Secretary of State John Kerry, who sought to ease tensions over Jerusalem, which has been wracked by violence. The capital has been subjected to months-long rioting on the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, and to multiple terror attacks over the past several weeks. 

The flare-up in Jerusalem has been watched with growing concern just as efforts to consolidate a ceasefire in Gaza after a 50-day war have run into problems.

Toyberg-Frandzen told the council that there were "some signs of progress" over reconstruction but that "the overall state of affairs in Gaza remains volatile and fraught with potential pitfalls."

Israel has agreed to allow 800 truckloads of reconstruction material into Gaza, up from the current 350, but $62 million worth of UN construction projects are awaiting approval by Israeli authorities. Hamas, meanwhile, has threatened to begin another war if reconstruction does not begin shortly. 

There has been little to no progress in establishing a unity government between Palestinian Hamas and Fatah factions in Gaza - a move seen as a key to speeding up reconstruction, said the UN official.

Toyberg-Frandzen also condemned the recent firing of Hamas rockets in Gaza and in Israel and warned the launches risk re-igniting the conflict with Israel - blaming the "occupation" for the recent round of violence. 

"The continued reality of the close to 50-year long occupation and the lack of progress towards the two-state solution ensure that the next round of violence is never too far below the surface," warned Toyberg-Frandzen.

The 15-member council went into closed-door consultations following the report by the assistant-secretary general.

Un document traduit en français, un gros merci à la personne, sur toute cette transition qui s'est faite au niveau de l'ONU et de l'OCI, ces dernières années, qui aura pour but la criminalisation des chrétiens, des juifs et des insoumis aux lois de Rome, qui est la tête de l'ONU. Cet Empire qui cache ce qu'elle est réellement et qui se montre devant le monde entier comme un Empire d'unité, de Paix et de Justice, est maintenant entré dans sa phase destructrice de domination globale.

Voyez comment s'est mis en place cette vaste conspiration qui utilisera le pouvoir civil pour punir les "dangereux islamophobes et terroristes".


Cette interview du pakistanais Rizwan Saeed Sheikh, porte-parole du Secrétaire général de l'OCI, parue dans Saudi Gazette, reflète une vision du monde digne des pires tyrannies.

L'Occident devrait passer à l'offensive et demander que le blasphème soit un droit reconnu partout dans le monde.

Le "Processus d'Istanbul", un processus pervers

JEDDAH – Ayant obtenu le feu vert du Sommet islamique du Caire, l’Organisation de la Coopération islamique (OCI) œuvre activement à faire reconnaître le dénigrement des religions comme une infraction pénale, selon un haut responsable.

«La prochaine session du Processus d'Istanbul sur l'islamophobie se déroulera au cours du premier semestre de cette année, et elle sera carrément orientée sur la criminalisation du dénigrement des religions», a déclaré Rizwan Saeed Sheikh, directeur des affaires culturelles au secrétariat général de l'OCI et porte-parole du Secrétaire général de l'OCI.

Dans une interview accordée au Saudi Gazette, Sheikh a souligné le besoin de transposer le droit international dans le droit interne des pays pour lutter efficacement contre l'islamophobie, qui constitue une forme contemporaine de racisme ciblant principalement l'islam et les musulmans. Il a indiqué que l'OCI a l’intention d’établir un observatoire international basé à Genève avec un mandat mondial de surveillance du dénigrement non seulement de l’islam mais aussi de toutes les autres religions.

«L'OCI est fermement convaincue que toutes les religions, et leurs symboles, ne doivent pas être dénigrées. Le Sommet islamique du Caire a approuvé cette position et chargé le secrétariat de l'OCI de développer une stratégie unifiée pour convaincre la communauté internationale de prendre des mesures efficaces contre de tels actes d'incitation à la haine et à l'intolérance qui peuvent mener à la violence et à des pertes de vies», a-t-il dit, tout en notant que l'islamophobie figurait en tête des priorités du Sommet.

Sheikh, un Pakistanais expert en matière d’islamophobie, a expliqué les actions menées par l’OCI pour lutter contre l’islamophobie en s’assurant d’une implication active de la communauté internationale.

«Le Secrétaire général de l'OCI, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, a lancé un processus, connu comme le Processus d'Istanbul, en juillet 2011 avec Hillary Clinton, alors Secrétaire d’État américaine, et Catherine Ashton, représentante de l’UE pour les Affaires étrangères, ainsi que les dirigeants de pays membres et non-membres de l’OCI, afin d’établir un consensus en matière de lutte contre l’islamophobie. Des réunions similaires ont ensuite eu lieu à Washington et Londres dans le cadre du Processus d'Istanbul, et maintenant les États-Unis, le Royaume-Uni, l'Union africaine, la Ligue arabe et l'OCI souscrivent au Processus et vont le faire avancer en discutant spécifiquement de cette question. Lors du prochain évènement, l’OCI mettra carrément l’emphase sur la criminalisation du dénigrement des religions et les mesures qui doivent être prises sur la base de l’article 20 du Pacte international relatif aux droits civils et politiques (PIDCP) », a-t-il dit.

Selon Sheikh, le droit international, représenté par l’article 20 du PIDCP, indique clairement que le dénigrement des symboles et des figures considérés comme sacrés par une religion constitue un délit criminel. Cet article entérine la position de l’OCI et le seul problème qui subsiste est l'absence de mise en oeuvre de son véritable esprit par les États membres.

«Ce droit international est suffisant pour répondre aux préoccupations de l'OCI, mais le problème est soit un déficit au niveau de son interprétation, soit un déficit au niveau de sa mise en œuvre. Bien que l’article 20 soit contraignant pour tous les pays ayant signé et ratifié le PIDCP, il n'est pas effectivement transposé dans le droit interne de ces pays. L'OCI déploie des efforts pour obtenir sa mise en œuvre au niveau mondial au moyen de la résolution 16/18 du Conseil des droits de l’Homme parrainée par l’OCI, qui résulte du Processus d’Istanbul.

Sheikh a également discuté des activités de l'observatoire de l’OCI, sous la supervision du Secrétaire général. «L'observatoire surveille l'islamophobie sur une base quotidienne et la documente dans des rapports mensuels et annuels. L'OCI publie des rapports annuels, et à ce jour, il en a publié cinq, et le dernier a été présenté à la rencontre des ministres des Affaires étrangères à Djibouti en novembre. Le Sommet du Caire s’est félicité du rôle de l’observatoire de l’OCI dans la lutte contre l’islamophobie et a demandé au Secrétaire général d’ajouter des mécanismes en vue de le renforcer», a-t-il dit.
