"Palestinians Always Live in Fear": Jerusalem Killings Follow Months of Tensions, Settlement Growth

"Palestinians Always Live in Fear": Jerusalem Killings Follow Months of Tensions, Settlement Growth | Social & Economic Justice Mash Up | Scoop.it
In the aftermath of Tuesday’s attack that killed five Israeli civilians in a Jerusalem synagogue, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of inciting violence in the city and said the killings were part of a "battle over Jerusalem." Abbas has condemned the attack, which came after weeks of unrest fueled by a dispute over Jerusalem’s holiest site, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and known to Jews as the Temple Mount, as well as the continued expansion of Israeli settlements. We discuss the worsening tensions in Israel and the Occupied Territories with two guests: Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies at Columbia University and author of several books, and Eran Efrati, a former Israeli combat soldier turned anti-occupation activist and investigative researcher.

The Khorasan Group: Anatomy of a Fake Terror Threat to Justify Bombing Syria - The Intercept

The Khorasan Group: Anatomy of a Fake Terror Threat to Justify Bombing Syria - The Intercept | Social & Economic Justice Mash Up | Scoop.it
As the Obama administration prepared to bomb Syria without Congressional or U.N. authorization, it faced two problems. The first was the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, a group that clearly posed no imminent threat to the “homeland.” A second was the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing>>
Annette Lengyel's insight:

"The solution to both problems (of public support and justifying bombing Syria) was found in the wholesale concoction of a brand new terror threat that was branded “The Khorasan Group.” After spending weeks depicting ISIS as an unprecedented threat – too radical even for Al Qaeda! – administration officials suddenly began spoon-feeding their favorite media organizations and national security journalists tales of a secret group that was even scarier and more threatening than ISIS, one that posed a direct and immediate threat to the American Homeland. Seemingly out of nowhere, a new terror group was created in media lore."

to add insult to injury, or should I say torture to injury, the Israeli government detained a Palestinian who sought treatment in Turkey for his injuries sustained during Israel's assault on Gaza.  Now in Israeli detention fears are he will be tortured.
