Tentative first steps can lead to marches for change.

It seems some in Canada have taken notice that certain ‘refugees’ can have a rather dark past that may make them less than optimal candidates for citizenship.





Like a bolt from the blue, Canada’s Federal Court issued a stunning rebuke to the Palestinian Authority in December.

It all started out as a run-of-the-mill immigration case, but its effects could — and should — be far-reaching.


Khitam Khudeish, a long-time employee of the Palestinian Embassy in Baghdad, came to Canada in September of 2016, claiming refugee status on the basis of religious persecution.

Our country’s tribunals and courts review thousands of similar cases each year.

This case, however, was different.

It turned out that, for 22 years, Khudeish had been doling out funds on behalf of the PLO through its “Palestine Martyrs’ Families Foundation” (PMFF.)

The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration became involved, suggesting that by aiding the PMFF, Khudeish made herself ineligible for refugee status under article 1(f) of the Refugee Convention, which bars those engaged in crimes against humanity — including terrorism.

PrimeTimeZone reports on a new interview that Suha Arafat, Yasir Arafat's widow, gave to Yediot Aharonot:


In surprising and shocking statements, the widow of the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, Suha, acquitted Israel of responsibility for poisoning her husband and causing his death.

And she considered in a lengthy interview with the Hebrew newspaper “Yediot Aharonot” that her husband went on the path of terrorism and committed a big mistake by igniting the Al-Aqsa Intifada that broke out in 2000 after former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Suha told the newspaper that Yasser Arafat was definitely poisoned, but not by Israel but by a Palestinian.

She added: "Everyone believed that Israel was guilty, but I am not accusing it. I’ve always said that it’s too easy to say Israel, but I don’t think the Israelis killed Arafat. ...What evidence do you have that Israel is responsible?"

Suha believes that Arafat should not have returned to the path of terror, adding: “There are others who were more murderers than Arafat, and Yasser really mourned and deeply grieved for the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin. Except that he was obsessed with hatred for Sharon ”.

According to the Hebrew newspaper, “Suha Arafat is trying to convince the Israelis that even though her husband Yasser’s hands are stained with the blood of thousands of Israelis, he really wanted peace.”
It sounds like she wants to rewrite Arafat's murderous legacy and at the same time to distance him from other Palestinian leaders who she has criticized in the past.

A grade 9 social studies text says, "[the Occupation] has turned vast tracts of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip into dumping sites for toxic waste and has sought to pollute the Palestinian environment with radioactive and chemical materials, as well as bomb production projects."

A grade 7 social studies text falsely says “the Zionists” deliberately set the Al-Aqsa Mosque on fire in 1969.

And, of course, UNRWA erases Israel in maps and refers to Israeli cities as "Palestinian."

UNRWA closed its 28 health facilities in Lebanon on Thursday as the nation went on lockdown, causing great anger among Palestinians. They plan to re-open tomorrow.

Nearly 4000 Palestinians have tested positive for COVID-19 in Lebanon, and 145 Palestinians have died so far.

There has not been a single article in The Guardian or Reuters or CNN or the New York Times about this situation. No "human rights" NGOs are up in arms about this. No one is castigating Lebanon for not taking care of the people who live in Lebanon.

In fact, no one in the West has even bothered to ask the question of how Palestinians in Lebanon will be vaccinated.

What does this document say? This is the part HRW doesn't want you to read:
The Committee reminds the State party that it has positive and negative obligations with regard to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, depending on its level of control and the transfer of authority, that it should not raise any obstacle to the exercise of such rights in those fields where competence has been transferred to the Palestinian authorities and that any measures taken by the State party should ensure that the legislative and policy measures relating to the occupied territories taken by the State party as the occupying Power do not result in any permanent alteration in the political or legal status of the territories or have irreparable consequences for the people living there.
It says explicitly that in areas where the Palestinians have control, Israel cannot interfere with their governance without permission.

That means that Israel must not interfere with Palestinian vaccination plans - unless the Palestinian Authority asks.

Which is entirely consistent with the Geneva Conventions, with the Oslo Accords, and entirely inconsistent with what HRW is claiming!

That's what you've been mindlessly repeating for the last 10 years...
But instead, all we get is an hour long video of a British woman.

When will you have the integrity to admit?

The WHO has “concerns”. Apparently, there is unequal distribution of Wuhan virus vaccine. Israel is proceeding with vaccine distribution to its population while the “country of Pal’istan” is unwilling to do the same for its citizens.

I didn’t see where the UN is making any real inquiries as to why the “country of Pal’istan” is unwilling to fund the purchase of vaccine for its citizens.

The“country of Pal’istan” being unwilling to fund the purchase of vaccine for its citizens is because everyone is racist™, maybe islamophobic™

WHO raises ‘concerns’ about vaccine inequity between Israel and Palestinians

UN body says it has held talks with Israel about sending doses to Palestinians



The World Health Organization has raised “concerns” about the unequal distribution of coronavirus vaccines in Israel, which has given shots to more than 20 percent of its population, and the Palestinian territories, an official said Monday.

While vaccinating its own Arab citizens and Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem, Israel says it is not responsible for inoculating the Palestinians. Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said Israel will consider helping, once it takes care of its own citizens.



Yeah, that’s definitely racist™ and islamophobic™

Here, there, and everywhere.
Although one day it might, Palestine doesn’t exist today. An independent Arab Palestine has never existed. It didn’t exist under the Ottoman rule or the British Mandate or, in the end, under a United Nations Partition Plan that was rejected by every single Arab state and Palestinian leadership. It didn’t exist when the Palestinians were governed by governments in Jordan and Egypt (a time when there was virtually no international pressure to create an independent Palestine) and it didn’t come into existence when the Arab states rejected Israel’s peace gestures after the 1967 and 1973 wars.

Yasser Arafat ultimately rejected peace in every negotiation he ever participated in, embracing Intifada instead. Palestine didn’t exist after Israel granted Gaza autonomy and the populace turned to the terrorists of Hamas, and it won’t exist until Hamas and Fatah stop engaging in and supporting terrorism and drop their absurd demands for Jerusalem and the Right of Return.

Rashida Tlaib can put as many sticky notes over Israel as she likes, and it won’t change this reality.

A number of media outlets covering this incident point out that the United Nations and 137 states have “bilaterally” recognized Palestine. While it’s nice that Botswana and Cuba (and scores of other nations that suppress their own minority populations) have decided to act as if a small, disputed territory in the Middle East is an independent entity, the United States does not recognize a Palestinian nation. More significantly, the only country that can make the Palestinian state a reality is Israel.

Sadly it's commonly known,
and occurs on a weekly if not daily basis.

Not just the car robbery... I guess every country has its more crime ridden areas,
in Israel it is the Negev, largely unpopulated, relatively large swats of desert mountains and valleys at a connection of two continents and constant movement of nomadic Bedouine tribes within, with constant attempt to infiltrate from outside, motivated by vastly different causes and routes.

Anyway, this is not to complain, I have criticism on how the security is conducted there (though don't pretend to know much), and as mentioned, sadly became the norm. I don't even usually post these kind of "news" or pay too much focus on them.

However these 2 recently reported cases, one just hours ago, caught my attention with the public response shift, that sadly got used to the dangerous situation inherited from previous generations.

How can anyone say our society is living under an apartheid regime when among us you will find doctors, judges and even lawmakers? How can you say Samer Haj-Yehia lives in an apartheid regime when he is the head of the biggest bank in Israel? B’Tselem has already broken the record for hypocrisy, but to compare Israel to an apartheid regime is not only a distorted lie but an insult to all those South Africans who actually lived through apartheid. It is contempt for and cynical exploitation of the concept.

To my delight, Israel will likely be the first country to exit the coronavirus pandemic, and in a few months, people from around the world may be able to come here and see for themselves what apartheid looks like in Israel. Then they will be able to hear Hebrew and Arabic spoken in the Nazareth marketplace, they will see mosques, churches and synagogues alongside one another in Jaffa, and see the coexistence of the Israeli mosaic across the country. And maybe, just maybe, their visit here will make them want to live under an apartheid regime.

SUBTOPIC: The political existence of the State of Palestine.
⁜→ rylah,, et al,

BLUF: Sometimes my image of the true reality can be so very wrong.

Sadly it's commonly known, and occurs on a weekly if not daily basis.

Not just the car robbery... I guess every country has its more crime ridden areas, in Israel it is the Negev, largely unpopulated, relatively large swats of desert mountains and valleys at a connection of two continents and constant movement of nomadic Bedouine tribes within, with constant attempt to infiltrate from outside, motivated by vastly different causes and routes.
(COMMENT)

In my mind, I always had this image of The Bedouin as an "adventurer" with just the right touch of "romanticism." When I think of the Bedouin, Omar Sharif comes to mind
(I know he is really Egyptian). I tend to disregard any negative connotations associated with those people.

Most Respectfully,

Is the dumping of that silly youtube video really necessary after dumping it a dozen or mire times previously?

Sharp Criticism in Gaza after Hamas Puts Up Posters of Iran’s Qasem Soleimani

The Arab world and the streets in the Gaza Strip expressed rage following the posting of huge posters on the city’s main streets featuring a picture of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Al-Qods Force of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) who was assassinated by the US a year ago.

In the Gaza Strip, Soleimani ‘s pictures were spray-painted, ripped down, and residents are tweeting condemnation of him and Hamas.



The posters, marking the first anniversary of his assassination, are provoking great anger on social media across the Arab world as journalists, commentators and bloggers are condemning Hamas for choosing to show in its streets the image of “the one responsible for killing women and children, including Palestinians in the refugee camps in Syria, during the civil war.”

Similar criticism was voiced when Ismail Haniya, the leader of Hamas, attended Soleimani’s funeral in Tehran.

Social activists from the Palestinian Authority (PA) condemned Hamas’ sympathetic approach to Iran, which funds and supports the terror organization. The picture has shocked activists and bloggers who oppose Hamas’ appeal to the Iranian regime at the expense of the Arab countries.

Surfers accused Hamas of treason and stated that its affiliation with Iran is no less serious than the peace agreements between Israel and Arab countries.

“Normalization is treason and the rise of Qasem Soleimani in Gaza is a betrayal of the people and the blood spilled in Syria and Iraq.”

One surfer accused Hamas of being a “partner of the one who washes its hands in the blood of the Syrian children who were murdered by Soleimani.”

Maria Malouf, a Lebanese journalist who opposes Hezbollah, tweeted against Hamas and Islamic Jihad and accused them of “taking the image of Soleimani from his grave while appreciating the killing and wounding of millions of Syrians, Yemenis, Iraqis and Lebanese, destroying their homes and displacing them.”

Faisal al-Qassem, a senior member of Al Jazeera, tweeted that “following the huge picture of Qasem Soleimani in the streets of Gaza, a question to the gentlemen there, ‘Do you now expect the Arab street to identify with you and your targets?’ When it sees that you are erecting statues for the murderers of Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, and Lebanese? All that remains is for Hamas to join the Qods Force and liberate Palestine from Falluja to Idlib, how can you desecrate your faded streets with a murderer, criminal, thug and terrorist like Soleimani!?”

Qassem added that “it is customary to say that Iran has captured four Arab capitals and now it is clear that there are five capitals (Gaza). We congratulate the “brothers” in Hamas for joining the group of five major countries.”

“Despite his crimes and the slaughter of Palestinians in the Yarmouk camp and the killing of hundreds of thousands of Syrians, Iraqis and Yemenis, Hamas militias hung a picture of the Iranian Qods Force commander, Qassem Soleimani, on the streets of Gaza to confirm their affiliation with the Iranian Mullah regime,” another social media user wrote.

Sunni surfers came out against Hamas for choosing to associate itself with the revolutionary Shiite camp, in exchange for greed for money, and others condemned it because it has become “completely Iranian,” a Sunni movement that has taken on the patronage of the Shiite Iranian regime.

Another surfer wrote that “posting a picture of the killer Soleimani is a disgrace and a valuable service to those who are working to demonize the Palestinians and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“I swear to God: the traitor remains a traitor, Hamas is a cursed cancer that is spreading in Gaza, the residents of Gaza have been taken hostage and their blood traded, Hamas is not Islamic, whether you like it or not,” a post on Twitter stated.

Other derogatory remarks were made about the transformation of Gaza into a “Persian entity detached from any Palestinian Arab symbol” and many surfers, including in the PA and the Gaza Strip, condemned Hamas for selling the Gaza Strip and its Palestinians to Iran, in exchange for the money that is given to its military arm and not its residents who are now expected to suffer from the boycott that rich Arab countries will impose on the Gaza Strip.

One of the surfers asked: “in light of the image of the Arab killer in the skies of Gaza, is there still any doubt about the filth of the Persian Hamas leadership?”

The large military exercise that Hamas conducted on Tuesday alongside the other terror groups in the Gaza Strip also highlights the strong connection between Hamas, and Iran and sources in the Gaza Strip say that it was coordinated with the Iranians.

The exercise was also condemned by elements in the Gaza Strip. Surfers suggested that Hamas should give the exercise the name “The Great Iranian Maneuver.”

On the other hand, Hamas spokesmen and activists boast that the connection between the organization and the Iranian regime has become very intimate in recent years, a source of military power.

A Hamas supporter wrote in his account that “the poster shows the strength of relations between Hamas and Revolutionary Guards leaders.”

The remarks made by Mahmoud al-Zahar a few days ago, a senior Hamas official who is considered a supporter of the organization’s “Iranian option,” regarding the receipt of suitcases with money from Soleimani also testify to the strength of relations between Hamas and Iran.

Al-Zahar described a meeting with Iranian President Ahmadinejad in 2006 during which he sought assistance and was referred to Soleimani.

“I found $22 million in a number of bags at the airport,” said the senior Hamas official, “but we were only nine people there and we could not carry more weight, because each bag weighed 40 kilos.”

Al-Zahar provoked a wave of criticism after giving the title “holy martyr” in reference to Soleimani and because he described him as “loyal to the liberation of Palestine.”

Many residents of the Gaza Strip expressed concern that Hamas is cutting off Gaza from the moderate Sunni world, which could lead to a complete cessation of the remnants of Arab aid to the residents of the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas has chosen to belong to the Shiite Iranian axis after a long internal debate, and to cut itself off from the moderate Sunni camp,” said a source in the Gaza Strip,

“This step will take a heavy toll on the residents of the Gaza Strip, who will still miss the money from the Gulf,” he added.

A Saudi surfer wrote in response to a Hamas supporter in Gaza that “your hatred has made you ignore what we have done for Palestine from 48 to now, we have been paying for you from our youth, and all the expenses are on Saudi Arabia, which rehabilitated Gaza, while the Houthis [Iran’s allies] are in Sanaa and Soleimani curses Sunni Muslims and says that Aisha [Muhammad’s third wife] was an adulteress “
