    GAZA,(PIC)-- The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) testified before the UN committee to investigate Israeli crimes against Human Rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.

    PCHR's representatives, Samir Zaqout and Mervat El-Nahal, reviewed the human rights situation and violations against Palestinian civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, pointing out to the victims’ anger towards UN inability and silence in light of the Israeli violations of human rights and international law.

    The center's representatives addressed the occupation's violations against the Palestinian civilians and their properties and lands, highlighting the excessive use of force by IOF since the Palestinian Intifada (uprising). They shed light on investigations conducted by PCHR in each crime and explained that some crimes showed that IOF deliberately targeted civilians.

    Couldn't the PCHR request UN teams to live with and observe both Palestinians and settlers? Seems like a simple solution to me and others. I realize that's like a cop parked in a residential neighborhood to observe and catch speeders, but what other remedy would work? Accusations just don't hold water.

    Why the hell would Israel ever cooperate with the UN whose "peacekeepers" stood by and fimed the kidnapping of IDF soldiers? I have two important words for the UN: FUCK YOU!

    UN in quandary as Israel presses for tape of kidnap
    Ewen MacAskill in Jerusalem
    The Guardian, Sunday 8 July 2001 20.18 EDT

    The UN is caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between Israel on one side and Lebanon and the Islamic guerrilla movement, Hizbullah, on the other over a videotape relating to the kidnap of three Israeli soldiers last year.
    Israel has demanded an unedited copy of the video from the UN, in the hope that it might find out what happened to its soldiers, and who within Hizbullah was responsible. The fate of the three is uncertain, though they may still be held captive.

    The tape was filmed by an Indian contingent of the UN mission in Lebanon, Unifil, 18 hours after the kidnapping of the Israeli patrol. It shows a vehicle with mock UN markings, apparently used by Hizbullah to lure the soldiers. Bloodstains, UN uniforms, forged number plates and several Lebanese individuals can also be seen on the video.

    The UN fears that the lives of its neutral personnel in Lebanon, who monitor the border with Israel, could be endangered if Israel uses the tape to identify Hizbullah members responsible for the kidnapping. Lebanon and Hizbullah warned the UN this weekend not to hand it over.

    As a compromise, the UN has offered to provide Israel with an edited version of the tape in which the faces of the Lebanese, who may or may not be Hizbullah guerrillas, would be obscured. But Israel wants the whole, uncensored tape.

    :eusa_eh:
    The Birth Of The Next Intifada?
    Sep 13, 2012 - Amid growing concerns that the situation could turn into a violent conflict with Israel, Palestinians turned against their leaders this week with protests in the West Bank targeting the Palestinian Authority for mismanagement of the struggling economy.

    The Abbas/Fayyad government needs to demand more and get more from Israel or it will fall.

    It will be very bad for Israel if that government falls.
