Intellectuals, politicians, Lobbyists… lock them in a room together and they can go on for hours about the definition of a word. Jimmy Carter’s recent book opened a Pandora’s Box exposing one particular word; APARTHEID. One word, one question, Is Israel an apartheid state?
Much has been written about the ongoing discussions and arguments and CounterPunch has been keeping up with the best of it all. This recent entry has got to be the best yet, from yesterday’s edition….

Of Walls and Bantustans
Apartheid By Any Other Name


Former President Jimmy Carter’s latest book, Palestine Peace Not Apartheid, has generated considerable comment, most of it negative. Articles and reviews run a narrow gamut from circumspect criticism to personal attacks on the author. Virtually no one has addressed the core argument of the book: that Israeli policy toward the Palestinian population in the West Bank…

The report, titled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid,” says that “available evidence establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that Israel is guilty of policies and practices that constitute the crime of apartheid as legally defined in instruments of international law.”

First a flashback to the 60’s …. There was a joke circulating that went something like this … An American and a Soviet were having a discussion. The American said “I live in a Democracy, I can call President Kennedy a bastard and nothing will happen to me”. The Soviet responded, “I too live in a Democracy, I can also call President Kennedy a bastard and nothing will happen to me”.

Now, a look at ‘The Only Democracy in the Middle East” ….

U.S.-born Jeff Halper, cofounder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, was held after leading a tour of the E1 area across the road from the Israeli settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim.

Ahmed Dawabsha’s endless string of tragedies 

Palestine Momentum

He’s life had a brutal start. Ahmed as sole survivor after his house was attacked by a Zionist settler. The boy lost his mother, his father and his 18 months old brother.

I’ve followed his battle since a Zionist terrorist decided to hit the home where Ahmed and his brother was sleeping peacefully in their beds. Throwing that firebomb through the window, gave Ahmed wounds far deeper than the scars on his skin.

And through the struggle I’ve seen this one man by his side. His loving, caring and supporting grandfather.

I just got the tragic news that Ahmed’s grandfather, Hussein passed away.

“We are now the only family he has, and I…

Zionism: Barbarism by “educated” people

Palestine Momentum

If you ask a Nazi, he would tell you that, “We are the most educated and cultured people, we are the Aryan race” 
If you ask a zionist he would tell you that we are the “chosen people”
But in reality they are both equal in barbarism: 
 Yair Auron

“There was no battle and no resistance (and no Egyptians). The first conquerors killed from eighty to a hundred Arabs [including] women and children. The children were killed by smashing of their skulls with sticks. Is it possible to shout about Deir Yassin and be silent about something much worse?” For the first time ever, a letter quoting one of the Israeli soldiers who were part of the Al-Dawayima massacre in October 1948 is published in full.

On Friday, February 5th 2016, Haaretz published an article in Hebrew by Israeli historian Yair Auron [pictured left], which covers one of the biggest massacres…

Fight for Human rights and freedom in Hebron city – Palestinian Territories 

Palestine Momentum

A Call for Solidarity Campaign:

A coalition between Palestinian human rights organizations, popular resistance movements and political organizations. We are asking global pro Palestinian activists, to join us in our campaign to save the oppressed Palestinian population in Hebron!

This is an awareness campaign to put pressure on the international political leaders, and the occupation to remove the Zionist settlements, and military outposts under constant growth.

Apartheid is illegal no matter where it’s practiced, but Hebron is Palestinian Territories! The occupation is therefore in violation of every peace agreement, and their tactics from the occupation violates every human right law ever written.

We want you to: 

  1. Print out this picture 
  2. Take a picture with you holding it like Stefanie in this picture (we would love it if you take the photo outside of the Israeli embassy in your country)


  3. Post it on your timeline with the hashtag #DismantleTheGhetto

Bizarre attempt of victimhood from Netanyahu “Iran Fighting israel From Syria”

Here’s what he told Putin while holding back tears:“(Iran) is arming itself and its forces against Israel including from Syria territory and is, in fact, gaining a foothold to continue the fight against Israel,” he said in reply to a reporter’s question.“There cannot be peace when they continue the war and therefore they have to be removed.”You heard it here first: Iran is “continuing the fight against Israel” in Syria. We thought Iran is fighting “moderate” rebels and ISIS in Syria? We were misled. Iran is fighting Israel.Putin’s response?I want to take the opportunity to congratulate you on the upcoming Purim holiday and wish everyone in Israel happy holidays.We’re sure Putin was very moved by Netanyahu’s performance, but it seems like Moscow is in no rush to tell Tehran to leave Syria — especially since Iran was invited to kill terrorists in Syria, while Israel is currently occupying Syrian land.
