OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Israeli government has refused to provide the United Nations assurance to discontinue its illegal usage of internationally banned white phosphorus bombs, which it used heavily in its latest war on the Gaza Strip, causing hundreds of Palestinian deaths, in addition to serious environmental damage.
The report said: “The army has taken measures to minimize civilian injuries and damage to their property in future military conflicts, including restricting the use of white phosphorus bombs in populated areas.”
He added: “The Arab League and the Palestinian Authority are obliged to stop all forms of negotiation and normalization of relations with the Zionist enemy, which will take continued (negotiations) as a cover-up for its crimes.”
He called on the international community to expedite the trial of Israeli leaders and war criminals, and to pressure Israel and harness its crimes, asking all human rights organizations to take action to expose Israel’s crimes and prosecute it in both national and international courts.
Barhoum noted that the report’s mention of future wars reveals Israel’s malicious intentions and its insistence on continually targeting the unarmed Palestinian people, especially in the absence of international justice and the presence of American bias towards Israel and its extremist government.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has warned that Tel Aviv would strike directly at the Lebanese government, should violence breaks out the next time.
In an interview with the Washington Post published Monday, the minister said "if it happens that Hezbollah will shoot into Tel Aviv, we will not run after each…launcher of some rocket in all Lebanon. We'll see the government of Lebanon responsible."
"We will see it as legitimate to hit any target that belongs to the Lebanese state, not just to Hezbollah," said Barak.
Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement, however, has repeatedly dismissed the accusations that it fires rockets into Israel.
The movement says such allegations are part of Israeli propaganda which aims to justify another invasion.
The Israeli regime has launched two wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. The second round of the all-out offensives killed about 1,200 Lebanese -- mostly civilians.
However, Tel Aviv on both occasions fell short of achieving any of its objectives and Hezbollah forced the Israeli military into retreating.
Tension between Lebanon and Israel has increased in recent months as Beirut arrested several people on suspicion of spying for Tel Aviv.
Dozens of people, including members of Lebanon's telecommunications personnel, have been arrested since last year on suspicion of collaborating with the Israeli spy agency, Mossad.
Demands Turkey Promise Not to Allow Future Aid DeliveriesBy Jason Ditz, AntiWar, July 20, 2010
According to officials familiar with the incident, the Israeli government is continuing to hold three of the aid ships involved with June’s failed attempt to deliver humanitarian goods to the Gaza Strip.
Turkey’s government has reportedly been pressing for the return of the vessels, which Israel would be obliged to do under international law, so far however Israel’s Foreign Ministry has refused to do so and is demanding that the Turkish government sign a formal pledge that the ships will not be used in future attempts to deliver aid to the strip.
During the flotilla in question, Israeli troops attacked the Mavi Marmara, one of the aid ships, and killed nine aid workers on board. The ship contained medication, toys, and electric wheelchairs.
Though the two nations are long-standing allies, the attack has seriously strained relations between Turkey and Israel, and Turkey is unlikely to agree to abandon all future aid deliveries for the sake of a face-saving effort by the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
Vittorio Arrigoni writing from the occupied Gaza Strip, Live from Palestine, 26 July 2010
The Abu Said family are Bedouin whose isolated farm is located near Gaza's boundary with Israel in the vicinity of Johr al-Dik. For the last forty years, the family never had any major problems with their belligerent Israeli neighbors. Abu Said, the family patriarch, explained that after the first and second Palestinian intifadas and following the start of the siege on Gaza, the threat of being shot by Israeli soldiers forced him to stop cultivating plots of land closest to the border. Twenty years ago, the family could still plough their property near the border, while in recent times they've had to retreat 400 meters, with considerable losses to their harvest. Beautiful orchards brimming with fruit once prospered; now even the trees' roots are gone.
In spite of the farm's unfortunate location, none of the family members were killed or injured during Israel's 2008-09 winter invasion. However, this year, Israel's brutal policies and actions affected the family directly.
Around 8:45pm on 13 July, 2010, a few of the women of the family were enjoying the cool of the evening in the courtyard in front of their house. They heard a muffled shooting sound, followed soon after by another, and then by a loud buzzing noise, as if a swarm of insects was approaching at full speed. The facade of their home was reduced to Swiss cheese and the flesh of the women was attacked.
Without provocation, an Israeli tank fired two artillery shells at the family's home. Amira Jaber Abu Said, 30, was hit and wounded in the shoulder by a piece of shrapnel and by steel darts, called flechettes. Her sister-in-law, 26-year-old Sanaa Ahmed Abu Said, was wounded in the foot. Panicking, they took shelter inside their home and called an ambulance. Meanwhile, from the direction of the nearby military turret, an Israeli armor-plated vehicle was stationed underneath and a machine gun was still shooting toward the family and continued to do so for a solid ten minutes.
After being delayed for 15 minutes by Israeli troops, ambulances reached the family farm. However, the paramedics were forced to flee as soon as they arrived under threat of Israeli fire.
Ali Abu Said, a family member, said in an interview "After Amira and Saana were wounded, we continued to call for the Re Crescent ambulance. After 15 minutes the paramedics arrived in our area, but they told us they couldn't get to our house because the Israeli soldiers wouldn't given them permission. They threatened to shoot them if they had gotten near. They've had to go back to where they'd come from, in Deir al-Balah."
After an hour of apparent calm, Nema Abu Said, a 33-year-old mother of five, realized that her youngest child, Nader, was still asleep outside the family home. Nema rushed out to find Nader when another dull shot was heard and she was hit by a round of flechettes, and was killed on the spot. Her brother-in-law, Jaber Abu Said, 65, was wounded by flechettes in his right thigh.
The family continued to call in vain for ambulances. The Israeli military allowed a Red Crescent ambulance to enter the area two hours later and retrieve the dead woman and three injured family members.

Israel's winter invasion, dubbed "Operation Cast Lead," resulted in the deaths of more than 1,400 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom were civilians, including more than 300 children. On 27 January, 2009, Amnesty International compiled a list of prohibited weapons that the Israeli forces used against the population of Gaza.
Flechettes are small metallic daggers with barbed points, four centimeters long with four small fins in the back. According to the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem, flechettes are loaded into shells fired by tanks. When the shells explode in mid-air, 30 meters from the ground, they propel a swarm of 5,000 to 8,000 flechettes, covering a cone-shaped radius, 300 meters wide and 100 meters long ("Flechette shells: an illegal weapon").
Although flechette shells are considered an illegal weapon, Israel continues to use them. In 2002, the Israeli high court rejected a petition presented by Physicians for Human Rights-Israel and the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights to end use of the flechettes in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Flechettes were also used by Israel during is July 2006 invasion of Lebanon.
On 5 January 2009, in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, numerous flechette shells were fired onto a main street, killing two civilians. Wafa Nabil Abu Jarad, a 21-year-old mother expecting twins, and 16-year-old Islam Jaber Abd al-Dayem were both killed by the darts.
Similarly, on 16 April 2008, Fadel Shana, a cameraman for Reuters news agency and two children nearby were also killed by flechettes. Shana was filming in Johr al-Dik, a few hundred meters from the Abu Said family's farm, when he was hit by a tank shell.
In spite of the attack and Nema's death, the Abu Said family will remain on the farm. They will do this out of a sense of pride, a desire to live and die on their own property, and because they have nowhere else to go.
Jaber, a member of the Abu Said family and a survivor of the attack, explained: "No form of resistance activity has ever taken place anywhere near our farm, ever. No threat whatsoever to Israel and its soldiers exists. I really don't understand why they've done this to us."
Meanwhile, young Nader asks relatives and visitors about his mother. None of his relatives have yet found the right words to explain to this innocent child what happened to his mother. Do those words actually exist?

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Fathiya Suwais, 57, has been subjected to cruel interrogation rounds and severe torture at the hands of Israeli investigators in Jalama detention center ever since her incarceration five days ago, the Ahrar center for prisoners' studies and human rights reported.
Fuad Al-Khafsh, the center's director, said in a press release on Saturday, that the Shabak investigators deprived the old woman from sleep and forced her to stand for long hours while blindfolded and handcuffed without any consideration for her age or health condition.
He said that Suwais, who was taken from her home in Tulkarem city on 19th July, was daily and violently interrogated, adding that the interrogators threatened to arrest her sisters and to keep her in custody if she did not confess to the charges leveled against her.
Khafsh said, "Israel is an unethical entity that does not respect human beings", referring to the detention of an old mother in a small cell and interrogating her over "trivial issues" while threatening her with detaining close relatives, which only point to the sadistic and inhuman nature of those who detain her.
He urged the international institutions and human rights groups to swiftly intervene to protect the detainee.

A decision by Israel’s Supreme Court to double a 15-month jail term for a policeman who shot dead an unarmed Palestinian driver suspected of stealing a car has provoked denunciations from police commanders and government officials.
Yitzhak Aharonovitch, the internal security minister, condemned the judges for “sending a terrible message to police officers”.
On the advice of police lawyers, the accused policeman, Shahar Mizrahi, had appealed his conviction last year in the expectation that the ruling would be overturned by the Supreme Court.
Mr Aharonovitch and Dudi Cohen, the police commissioner, said they would immediately seek a presidential pardon for Mizrahi. “I won’t merely support a pardon bid, I’ll lead it,” Mr Aharonovitch said.
But groups representing Israel’s large Palestinian Arab minority said the outrage at the doubling of the 15-month sentence for Mizrahi reflected the reality that the police force expected impunity when it used violence against Israel’s Palestinian citizens, who comprise a fifth of the population.
At Mizrahi’s original trial last year, the district court judge, Menachem Finkelstein, ruled that the policeman had acted “recklessly” during an operation to stop car thefts in the Jewish town of Pardes Hanna in 2006.
Despite his life never being in danger, Mizrahi had used the butt of his gun to smash the window of a car in which Mahmoud Ghanaim, 24, was seated and shot him in the head from close range. The court also noted that Mizrahi had changed his testimony several times during the investigations.
According to Mossawa, an advocacy group, 40 Palestinian citizens have been killed in suspicious circumstances by the security forces over the past decade. Mizrahi is the first policeman to be convicted in such a case.
As of yesterday, an online petition calling on the Israeli president, Shimon Peres, to pardon Mizrahi had attracted more than 5,000 signatures in a few days, and a Facebook page supporting the policeman had 1,300 fans.
Gideon Levy, a columnist with the liberal Haaretz newspaper, warned yesterday that those “siding with Mizrahi are eager to have a police force that kills -- but just Arabs, of course”.
Jafar Farah, the director of Mossawa, said: “The atmosphere of racism in Israel is being used to destroy the legal system from the inside, using the justification that Arabs are being killed.
“The reality today is that the police can kill an Arab citizen in any circumstances and know that there is almost no chance they will pay a price. The safeguards are being stripped away.”
Relations between Israel’s Palestinian minority and the police have been marked by profound distrust since late 2000, when police shot dead 13 protesters and wounded hundreds more during largely non-violent demonstrations in the Galilee at the start of the second intifada.
A subsequent state commission of inquiry found that the police had a long-standing policy of treating the country’s 1.3 million Palestinian citizens “as an enemy” and recommended that several officers be prosecuted for their role in the 13 deaths.
After a long delay, state prosecutors announced in 2008 that no one would be charged.
In several speeches since he took over as security minister last year, Mr Aharonovitch has promised measures to restore the minority’s faith in the police, including recruiting more police officers from the Palestinian population and fighting high rates of crime in Arab communities.
According to a police report submitted to the parliament earlier this year, only 382 of more than 21,000 police officers are Muslim – or less than two per cent.
At the appeal hearing last week, the Supreme Court increased Mizrahi’s jail sentence after ruling that Judge Finkelstein had not given enough weight to the victim’s life and the value of deterring similar police behaviour in the future. Under police regulations, Mizrahi was entitled only to shoot out the car’s tyres or fire at Ghanaim’s legs.
Immediately after the ruling, Mr Aharonovitch reported that he had called Mizrahi to tell him: “Your fight has become all of our fight.”
He was backed by several retired police commanders and a Likud MP, Danny Danon, who said he would submit a bill barring the indictment of police officers who open fire when they believe they are in danger.
In a sign of the mounting pressure from police groups on the Supreme Court, it issued a rare “clarification” statement of its judgment, pointing out that Ghanaim’s car was travelling too slowly to have ever put Mizrahi in any danger.
Mr Farah added that Mossawa’s investigations had revealed that, despite police claims, Ghanaim was the documented owner of the car he was driving.
The police, Mr Farah added, had supported Mizrahi throughout the case and had continued paying his police salary after his conviction.
The court’s decision to increase Mizrahi’s sentence came in the wake of strong suspicions that police officers executed a Palestinian driver in East Jerusalem last month, shooting him twice in the head from close range as he lay on the ground.
Moments earlier, Ziad Jilani, who was married with three children, had fled on foot after driving into a detail of police, injuring several officers, in the Wadi Joz neighbourhood. Witnesses said a stone had smashed his windscreen seconds before he swerved.
In one of the few other recent prosecutions of a policeman for killing a Palestinian citizen, Rubi Gai was acquitted last year of the manslaughter of Nadim Milham, who was shot in the back during a police search of his home for weapons. Witnesses testified that police had beaten Milham and that he was shot as he fled.
A survey published last month by Haifa University found that only one in five Palestinian citizens expressed faith in the police.
Mr Aharonovitch upset the Palestinian minority last year during an inspection of undercover narcotics agents in Tel Aviv. He was caught on camera telling one detective dressed as a drug addict he looked like “a real Araboosh”, a derogatory Hebrew term for Arabs.
The minister, who is a member of Avigdor Lieberman’s far-right party Yisrael Beiteinu, apologised but added that the comment was a “moment of banter”.
Mahash, the justice ministry’s police investigations unit, has been harshly criticised for the small proportion of complaints against the police it agrees to investigate. It rarely prosecutes officers.
The police have also refused to cooperate in imposing official sanctions on wayward officers, with critics saying that officers found to have acted negilgently or violently towards Palestinian citizens are often rewarded with promotion.
The state commission of inquiry into the killing by police of 13 Palestinian protesters in October 2000 recommended that several officers be dismissed from service or denied promotion. The recommendations were disregarded.
In one notorious case, the commission found that Benzi Sau, a northern Border Police commander, had acted with gross negligence in allowing snipers to shoot at stone-throwing demonstrators. Despite suggesting a ban on his promotion for four years, he rapidly rose through the ranks, becoming head of the Border Police in Jerusalem in 2001 and national head of the Border Police in 2004.

The Iranian nation is not unfamiliar with the double standards of the superpowers anymore. The history of Iran's relations with the western and eastern superpowers is filled with deceitfulness, dishonesty and fraudulence. The recent U.S.-proposed, Russia-backed United Nations Security Council resolution against Iran over its nuclear program is simply one example out of hundreds of instances which demonstrate that the big powers have not ever been honest and sincere with Iran.
While the international community is witness to the flagrant, ceaseless and unrelenting felonies of the illegitimate regime of Israel in the occupied territories of Gaza and West Bank, United Nations Security Council blindly voted in favor of an unfair, unilateral and unjustifiable round of sanctions against the most pacifist and peace-lover country in the region simply because it wants to progress its civilian nuclear program domestically and without foreign intervention.
The new round of sanctions against Iran comes in the wake of Israel's continued blockade of the Gaza strip in violation of the UNSC resolution 1860 which demanded Tel Aviv last year to end the siege and allow the humanitarian aids to be transferred to the beleaguered enclave. More interestingly, the UNSC resolution against Iran was adopted while the international community was expecting a decisive and clear-cut reaction to Israel's assault on the convoy of humanitarian aid heading from Turkey towards the Gaza strip.
Israel's recent incursion into the sailboats of Freedom Flotilla which cost the lives of 20 peace activists and left 50 others wounded was a clear and untainted violation of Fourth Geneva Convention and the Rome Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation of 1988. Let's pose a simple question: what would happen if it was Iran that had attacked the Freedom Flotilla? Would the reaction of UNSC have been the same?
The exercise of double standards knows no nationality, race, time and place. Over the past four months, the White House recurrently attacked Iran over the incarceration of three American hikers who entered Iran illegally and are now awaiting trial by the judiciary over their lawbreaking. Did the same American officials say a single word in protest to the killing of Furkan Dogan, the 19-year-old American-Turkish high school boy whom the Israeli forces killed in what they called the "Operation Sea Breeze"? Did they protest when the IDF troops boarded on the Freedom Flotilla and arrested Edward Peck, the former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq and Mauritania? Would they react similarly if Iran had arrested a former U.S. Ambassador?
Israel attacked the citizens of 37 countries in a vicious operation which extremely frightened the international community and once again showed the brutal and inhuman nature of the Zionist regime. Most of the European officials who condemned the attack for fear of the growing anger of public opinions did their best to use the most softened and equivocal language so as to avoid targeting Israeli officials directly. Nobody tried to hold Tel Aviv accountable for what was an evident and undeniable massacre of defenseless civilians who were trying to break an illegal imprisonment of more than 1.5 million people who are in dire need of foodstuff, medicines, fuel, gasoline, wheelchairs, renewed infrastructure and shelter. Over the past 40 years, Israel has demolished more than 9000 Palestinian homes and is now holding some 1.5 million people in an open-air jail which no international body has so far succeeded to unlock.
Israel autonomously violates international regulations, defies the calls of UN and human rights organizations and even disregards the calls of its own citizens who sympathize with the subjugated and anguished people of Palestine. UNSC ignores all of these crimes and felonies indifferently and adopts a resolution against Iran to punish the country for its civilian nuclear program, overlooking the 200 nuclear warheads which are accumulated in the arsenals of Israeli regime. That is something which even exceeds double standards. This is the inhumanity of UNSC.

Once again, Israel is resorting to psychological blackmail tactics by invoking "anti-Semitism and the holocaust" to enhance its ugly image in the eyes of the peoples of the world.
This week, the Israeli press reported that dozens of countries, mainly those orbiting the United States , which itself revolves in the Israeli orbit, agreed to cooperate in fighting "anti-Semitism" an "Holocaust denial." The effort is apparently part of the Israeli Foreign Ministry's effort to improve Israel 's image, badly tarnished following Israel 's Nazi-like onslaught on the Gaza Strip more than a year and a half ago.
Israel, a constantly nervous country that is taking a defensive posture against foreign criticisms of its manifestly barbarian crimes against defenseless Arab civilians, vociferously rejects any Nazi-comparisons, accusing critics of harboring anti-Semitism.
Even Jewish academics voicing such criticisms are hounded, vilified and even refused entry into Israel.
None the less, any honest comparison between Israel and Nazi Germany should vindicate the Nazi-comparisons.
The way Israel views and especially treats non-Jews, especially the Palestinian community, leaves no doubt as to the brutal ugliness and nefarious racism characterizing the Israeli mentality.
The heinous crushing by heavy bulldozers of peace activists, the deliberate murder of solidarity group members, the adamant refusal to prosecute and punish murderers and child killers whose victims didn't have "the proper holy blood," look very much as if borrowed from the catalogues of the Gestapo, SS and the Wehrmacht.
In truth, Israel is a bona fide Nazi state. However, both of its shamefulness and shamelessness are made to appear more benign and less malignant than they really are thanks to a huge machine of lies extending from Occupied Jerusalem to California that turns the black into white and the big lie into a "truth" glorified by thousands of pathologically twisted "tribesmen and women," indoctrinated in Jewish superiority over the rest of mankind.
Sometime, though, the huge hasbara machine proves inadequate or insufficient to do the job properly, mainly market the big lie and make it palatable and digestible as much as required. This in turn leads to many people discovering the truth about the gangsterly state as happened recently when the Judeo-Nazi entity rained death on innocent, helpless and defenseless civilians in Gaza whose main crime was their refusal to succumb to Jewish supremacy and refusal to settle for the status of slave vis-à-vis the chosen class, the chosen ubermenschen.
Now the most troublesome and most aggressive pariah country in the world is trying to give the impression that it is under threat that its victims are devising another holocaust against it.
The diabolic entity is also trying to sell the lie that Palestinians and their supporters hate Israel not because of its evil and Nazi-like practices, e.g. dropping 2-3 million cluster bomblets on southern Lebanon in 2006, but rather because they have deep-rooted hatred for Jews.
The truth, However, is that Israel is the main producer and generator of anti-Semitism since the Third Reich.
When millions of people around the world watch the phantasmagoric images of Israeli brutality on their TV screens, they are bound to hate everything Jewish, especially when Israel claims to act and behave in the name of the Jewish people and when it uses Jewish symbols, such as the Israeli flag.
Indeed, it was this very same flag, the Star of David, that Israeli criminality in Gaza and Southern Lebanon made it look like the swastika of Nazism. In any case, this description is not mine, it is rather the coinage of a member of the British Parliament who happened to be Jewish.
This shows that Israel can't behave and act like the Nazis behaved and acted and at the same time expect the peoples of the world to love Zionist Jews. Just as Muslims are paying the price for acts of terror committed in the name of Islam and in their own name, Jews, too, are bound to pay the price for Nazi-like acts perpetrated in their own name. I know that a decisive majority of Muslims view al Qaida atrocities as abhorrent whereas a decisive majority of Jews support Israel right or wrong for historical, psychological and religious reasons. None the less, everything has a price which even the innocent are bound to pay. This may not be fair, but it seems inevitable.
Unfortunately, Israel has tremendously cheapened and trivialized the issues of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust by lumping them with criticisms of Israeli criminality and with raising questions about the legitimacy of the Israeli entity.
Well, there are many Jews who don't accept Israel for religious, theological and moral reasons. And there are numerous non-Jews like this writer who reject Israel for moral and ethical reasons.
In the final analysis, a country that is based on mass murder, mass terror, ethnic cleansing and land theft has no legitimacy, no matter what the United Nations or the New York Times say. An act of rape will never ever be morphed into an honorable matrimony.
Needless to say, Israel 's occupation of Palestine was an act of rape from day-1, is an act of rape now , and will always be an act of rape. As such, Israel will have no legitimacy, neither today nor tomorrow, nor after a thousand years. This is not anti-Semitism, this is not holocaust denial, this is a mere acknowledgment of historical truth which the professional liars of Zionism are trying to obliterate, using all arts of mendacity and deception.
Hence, our response to Zionist trickery should take the form of separating Zionism from Jews. In the end, Israel is a nation-state while Jews are followers of a legitimate religion that enjoys historical and religious legitimacy. But Zionism is a poisoned political ideology and its brat child, Israel , is a stark expression of racism and criminality just as Nazism was a stark poisoned expression of German nationalism more than six decades ago.
We must clarify ourselves loudly that we are against Israel because Israel is evil and criminal, not because it is Jewish. This is not a propaganda message on our part, this is the truth, first because this is the right thing to do, and second, because fighting racism with racism is a lost cause.
As to the issue of the holocaust, it is immensely harmful to make it an issue in the context of our confrontation with Zionism. Israel and her supporters are trying hard to make the holocaust a perpetually relevant issue where it is not. I call this willful addiction holocaustabation. The holocaust took place in a distant land, perpetrated by Western Europeans, and Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims had nothing to do with it.
Hence, we must resist any attempt by Zionism to introduce this red herring into the conflict, and in case they insist on doing so, as they have been doing, we must counter their manifestly bankrupt arguments by pointing out that European Jews expelled from Europe due to the rampancy of German nationalism must find a solution for their problem in Europe itself, not in Palestine and the Middle East.
It is none of our business to be on the side of the holocaust deniers just as we must not allow ourselves to be duped by the Zionist holocaustabators. Our business is to fight, resist, and expose the Nazis of our time, namely evil Israel . For if we sided with the deniers, then we would be accused of anti-Semitism, and if we allowed ourselves to be duped or mesmerized by the Zionist liars, we would be demanded to pay at least part of the price for the attempted liquidation of European Jewry, a price we have already been forced to pay a thousand fold.
