Operation Free Palestine - #OpFreePalestine

Dear Citizens of the world,
We live in the most troubled times! Ravaged by debt, enslaved by greed, and trapped by media lies! Our lives have become such a burden, that we forgo the very basic instincts of our being - to care for our fellow brothers and sisters, We must dare to speak out in support of the Palestinian people who resist and endorse the horrific existence brought upon them through our blood thirsty imperial crusade.

The people of Palestine wake up in fear everyday knowing it may be their last; they walk the streets with military tanks aiming at them, they have to go through military checkpoints every day just to get to school or work, they are denied their basic human rights, they are shot at from point blank range for peacefully protesting, innocent Palestinian children are used as human shields by the Zionist IDF soldiers.

If Palestinians are 'Imagined.' then what are Israelis, Americans and Australians?

American presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich recently claimed that the Palestinians are an “invented people.” That resulted in essays, blogs and commentaries to prove that Palestinians were not invented. In reality, said many, it is the Israelis who are the invented people. Israel displaced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in 1948 to form the state of Israel and enclosed millions of others in outdoor prison-like conditions where they still remain, despite universal condemnation by the UN member states — except for Israel and the United States. Israel’s manifest destiny is comparable to that of its closest ally, America, which massacred Native Americans and rounded up the rest in reservations to construct its homeland.

Genocide of indigenous people is a common strategy employed by groups of people trying to lay claim to land and/or form a nation state. The Australians did it to the Aborigines. These nations all effectively defined themselves through a process of elimination of the Other.

Heartbreaking Palestinian Girl | طفلة فلسطينية تقطّع القلب

this video will make you cry :(
مقطع من برنامج وثائقي بريطاني عن غزة . - روس كيمب - زار غزة بعد مرور عام على الحرب الصهيونية على شعب غزة .. وشهد بعينه آثار الدمار الذي خلفته آلة الحرب الصهيونية في القطاع .
في هذا المقطع ترى لقاء مع أطفال في مركز لرعاية الأيتام في غزة .. عندما تشاهد الألم و الفجيعة في وجه هذه الطفلة البريئة لا تملك إلا أن تسكب الدموع تلو الدموع .
يجب أن نسأل أنفسنا.. ماذا فعلنا لنصرة غزة ؟ ماذا فعلنا لمسح دموع اليتامى هناك ؟
سيسألكم الله يا حكام العرب عن هذه الطفلة و عن ما أصابها .
لمثل هذا يذوب القلب من كمدٍ ***** إن كان في القلب إسلامُ و إيمان

Maher Zain - Palestine Will Be Free | ماهر زين - فلسطين سوف تتحرر

Get it now on iTunes: http://bit.ly/q3UqRN
Awakening Records is pleased to announce the release of the world's first animated peace music video on Palestine. Palestine will be Free' is performed by Awakening's latest music sensation - Maher Zain.

This is the first time an animated peace music video has been produced on Palestine: "We are recognised as pioneers and constantly pushing the bounds of creativity and innovation. This animated music video for our new star artist Maher Zain is just another step in that direction and certainly not the last", said Bara Kherigi, Director of Awakening Records. Destined to be an international success, the video features the story of a young brave Palestinian girl who never loses hope for a better future despite the harsh realities surrounding her.

We keep telling each other
That this day will be
Will be the last and tomorrow
We all can go home free
And all this will finally end
Palestine tomorrow will be free
Palestine tomorrow will be free

No mother, no father to wipe away my tears
That's why I won't cry
I feel scared but I won't show my fears
I keep my head high
Deep in my heart I never have any doubt
That Palestine tomorrow will be free
Palestine tomorrow will be free

I saw those rockets and bombs shining in the sky
Like drops of rain in the sun's light
Taking away everyone dear to my heart
Destroying my dreams in a blink of an eye
What happened to our human rights?
What happened to the sanctity of life?
And all those other lies?
I know that I'm only a child
But is your conscience still alive

I will caress with my bare hands
Every precious grain of sand
Every stone, and every tree
'Cause no matter what they do
They can never hurt you
'Cause your soul will always be free

Palestine tomorrow will be free
Palestine tomorrow will be free

 

Lyrics: Maher Zain & Bara Kherigi
Melody: Maher Zain

2012 New Palestine Video - Sami Yusuf ft Outlandish - Try Not To Cry

Sami Yusuf ft Outlandish 'Try Not To Cry' 

 

The suffering inflicted by Israel on the Palestinian people shows that it has forgotten the Jewish scriptures, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said on Saturday.

"They have forgotten their own history. They have forgotten what their own prophets have said about our God," Tutu said in his opening address to the International Russell Tribunal on Palestine.

"We worship a God that is naturally biased in favour of the suffering, the underdog, those who are suffering underfoot ... God is always on the side of the oppressed. In the Holy Land, the Palestinian people are the ones suffering."

Tutu said it pained him that a people who went through great suffering could in turn cause others to suffer.

"There is a great deal of preventable suffering being caused by people who themselves suffered so deeply ... who have gone through a crucible of suffering.

The difficulty of speaking about Palestine / Israel

So where does this leave people who do not question the veracity of the Holocaust or the history of anti-semitism that preceded it, who fully comprehend the desire of European Jews – following the Second World War – to create a safe homeland outside of Europe (and who know the sordid history of the refusal of the American and Canadian governments to accept Jewish refugees), but who also know that the State of Israel was founded on the forcible expropriation of the land of the Palestinians who were driven into exile? This is an historical injustice that cannot simply be “disappeared” by the “fact” of the state of Israel — an injustice compounded by many more injustices committed over the last 60 years (many of which have been opposed by Jews inside and outside of Israel). So long as there are millions of Palestinians in need of their homeland, we cannot avoid the necessity to speak of Palestine.

Call for Action: Palestinian prisoner on 50th day of hunger strike | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Khader Adnan has entered his 50th day of hunger strike protesting his illegal detention by Israel. Adnan was sentenced with administrative detention, which basically means Israel holds no charge or any evidence against him. Adnan is held in Israeli prisons without charge and without facing proper trial or prosecution, this is illegal under international law which clearly states that detainees should face proper prosecution and should have their charges read out to them.

Right of Return - Doc Jazz

Music video by Doc Jazz, for the song 'Right of Return', released on December 17th, 2011.

This song is a musical response to the words of Ben Gurion he spoke in 1948 about the expulsion of over 800,000 Palestinians from their homeland:"The old will die, and the young will forget".

This song shows the world that the young have not forgotten, and will not forget. They have kept their Palestinian identity alive, and their determination to never abandon their inalienable Right of Return.

At the beginning of the video you hear the voice of Yasser Arafat, in an excerpt from his famous speech to the United Nations in 1974. Translation: "They see in the Palestinian child, and in the Palestinian tree, an enemy they must get rid of."

After that there is a voice clip from Mahmoud Darwish, from his poem 'Aaberoon'. "In our land, we have what we do. And here, we have our history, and we have the first sound of life. Ours is the present ... the present and the future."

Doc Jazz has a vast repertoire of songs for the Palestinian cause. You can find his songs on http://www.docjazz.com and on http://www.soundclick.com/docjazz.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is appealing to Israel’s prime minister to immediately resume the transfer of Palestinian tax and customs revenue to the Palestinians.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said Ban also told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a phone conversation Tuesday that Israel’s new settlement building, including in East Jerusalem, undermines efforts to resume direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations and violates international law.

UN body affirms Palestine's right to self-determination

UN body affirms Palestine's right to self-determination | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Palestine has scored another victory, just a month after being accepted as a full member in UNESCO-- on Wednesday, November 23rd, the UN General Assembly's Social, Humanitarian Cultural Affairs Committee voted 166 to five in favor of the Palestinians’ right to self-determination. ...

 

“The Assembly urges all states, as well as the specialized agencies and organizations of the United Nations system, to continue to support and assist the Palestinian people in the early realization of their right to self-determination”, the resolution stated.

The Committee’s text also stressed the need to resume the peace process, based on a two-state solution which preserves “the territorial unity, contiguity and integrity of all of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem”, 

 

... And it would certainly highlight the fact that the United States’ unconditional support of Israel remains one of the biggest obstacles to Palestinian statehood.
