Palestine and Israel's shared history.....

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has launched an international campaign to achieve recognition by the United Nations for an independent Palestinian state. Abbas and his international supporters claim that only Israel (with the United States) stands in the way of this act of historical justice, which would finally bring about peace in the Middle East.

This video debunks the Palestinians' claim and shows that Abbas has been lying about the origins and history of the conflict. Palestinian leaders have rejected partition plans that would have given them much more land for their independent state than the Jews were offered for theirs. Rather than being the innocent victims of a "dispossession" at the hands of the Israelis, the Palestinians rejected reasonable compromises and instead pursued their aim of getting rid of the only Jewish state in the world.

An epitome of Israeli barbarianism ~ by Khalid Amayreh

An epitome of Israeli barbarianism ~ by Khalid Amayreh | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

As a student of the collective Israeli mindset and long-time observer of Israeli behavioral patterns, I wasn’t surprised a bit by Lieutenant Colonel Shalom Eisner’s behaviors with Danish peace activist Andreas Las.

The Israeli propaganda machine would want us to believe that the incident was an aberration, a kind of anomaly that in no way represents the true ethos of the Israeli army. But this is untrue.

In fact, from my observation of Israeli behavior for decades I can solemnly testify that Eisner’s behavior represents the norm rather than the exception. ...

A Soldier's Mother in Israel writes of the rockets from Gaza

A Soldier's Mother in Israel writes of the rockets from Gaza | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...But 27 isn't an accurate number - apparently, that was in one city. Beersheva has canceled school for tomorrow - no, not a snow day; a rocket day! And the more accurate count was not 27, but 90! Other schools have been closed. Ben Gurion University has closed for tomorrow as well. ...

No, I don't want Israel to flatten Gaza but so long as they continue to fire rockets into Israel, I reserve my right to express my anger and blow off steam by dreaming of Israel - just once - doing what any other normal nation would do. Russia, China, England, France, Germany - even the United States...would flatten Gaza if they fired 140 rockets in 32 hours at them. Only Israel...always Israel.

 

[Violence as a means for creating political change is not effective, not conceeding your opponents right to exist can never lead to resolution of conflict. ... Violence forces defence, defence forces more violence....this is a spiral without end.  No one wins when everyone loses.  Who will be the first to stand on principle and stop this madness?!]

Rachel Corrie: 'a true hero' was killed by the state of Israel, and by its brutal regime that practises not only 'mass punishment' but also 'ethnic cleansing'. The same regime that has displaced over 4 million Palestinians, and killed many thousands. The same regime that has denied the right to self-determination to the Palestinian people.

Peaceful Protest Can Free Palestine:  Khader Adnan's example | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Mr. Adnan has certainly achieved an individual victory. But it was also a broader triumph — unifying Palestinians and highlighting the power of nonviolent protest. Indeed, all Palestinians who seek an independent state and an end to the Israeli occupation would be wise to avoid violence and embrace the example of peaceful resistance.
