    If you receive or use a product that is under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), and are injured, you cannot sue the manufacturer, whose liability has been waived by the government. The only possible way to obtain benefits is to apply to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP). This waiver, and the CICP program apply to all EUA products: vaccines, drugs, masks, ventilators, COVID tests, monoclonal antibodies.

    When a vaccine is fully licensed, if it has not been placed on the childhood vaccine schedule, you can sue the manufacturer for an injury. A minority of vaccines fall into this category, such as typhoid and cholera vaccines.

    There is a second US government program that waives manufacturer liability for those vaccines that have been placed on the childhood schedule. It is called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), and it was established in 1986. All vaccines that CDC recommends for children or pregnant women (and the vast majority of vaccines administered in the US) fall into this category. Both the CICP and VICP programs are administered under the Health Resources and Services Agency (HRSA), a subagency of HHS.

    On August 23, 2021, FDA gave Comirnaty a license for people aged 16 and up. And on August 30, 2021, the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted unanimously to put Comirnaty on the childhood schedule, and the CDC Director, Rochelle Walensky, concurred. The USG was able to do this because the vaccine had been licensed for 16-17 year olds, who are still children.

    But before Comirnaty can enter the VICP program and gain its liability shield, there must be a 75 cent excise tax imposed on each dose. This money is what supports the VICP awards for injuries. There must also be a notice in the Federal Register. Perhaps surprisingly, neither an excise tax nor a Federal Register notice has been issued for Comirnaty.

    I confirmed this by checking whether Cominarty had been formally added to the childhood schedule, and according to the HRSA, which manages both compensation programs, it has not.

    So, if you actually received the licensed Comirnaty vaccine, correctly labeled as the brand-name product, and not the EUA Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine being fobbed off as licensed product, and you were injured, you would be free to sue the manufacturer for your injury.

    But it seems there is no licensed Comirnaty vaccine anywhere to be found in the US. Pfizer wrote, "Pfizer does not plan to produce any product with these new [Comirnaty National Drug Codes] and labels over the next few months while EUA authorized product is still available and being made available for U.S. distribution."

    So, if there is no licensed product being administered, and the EUA vaccine is shielded from liability under the CICP, there is no need to finish moving the product into the VICP, yet. The CICP offers stronger liability protection than does the VICP, and its maximum benefit, about $375,000, is a small fraction of the maximal VICP payout. Furthermore, moving the vaccine into the VICP when there isn't any vaccine to be found might create legal risks for the FDA and HHS.

    FDA issued a license for Comirnaty in order to enable vaccine mandates, which are illegal for EUA products, since EUA products are by legal definition experimental. (I have cited the EUA laws in earlier blog posts.) Yet FDA knew no licensed vaccine would be offered. This was a crime, a "bait and switch" on the American public. I wrote extensively about it the week of August 23, and in an article in The Defender coauthored with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on August 24.

    If you received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine under Emergency Use Authorization, or received the Moderna (whose branded product, “Spikevax” was licensed on Jan. 31, 2022 but is also unavailable ) or J and J vaccine, you can't sue anyone. You have the right to beg HRSA for compensation for lost wages and unpaid medical bills, period. So far, HRSA and the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program it administers have not paid out one dime for the approximately one million injuries and 20,000 deaths reported to VAERS for any COVID vaccine, nor a cent for any unreported injuries. In fact, they have not paid out a plug nickel for any injuries due to monoclonal antibodies, remdesivir, other COVID drugs, ventilators, tests, masks etc. that are all being used (a.k.a. shielded) for COVID under the EUA program.

    Look at the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program list of all the payments the CICP has made since it was founded. They have paid out a total of 29 claims since 2010. Over 6,000 (almost all related to COVID products) remain to be adjudicated. Note that the word "alleged" is used for both the countermeasure and the injury for which HRSA provided compensation. Even after HRSA provided benefits, HRSA has not admitted that an injury occurred nor that a countermeasure had caused it.

    Table 2. CICP Claims Compensated (Fiscal Years 2010 – 2022) As of November 1, 2021

    “This table displays the alleged countermeasure, alleged injury and amount of compensation paid for each compensated CICP claim filed between Fiscal Years 2010 through 2022.”

    Total amount paid to all CICP claimants since 2010: $6,076,087.47

    DHHS-HRSA have not admitted that a single injury was caused by a COVID vaccine, or for that matter by any COVID product used under an emergency use authorization.

    Similarly, CDC says it has not linked a single death to a COVID vaccine--not even when a recipient walked into the vaccination center but got carried out to the morgue.

    HRSA, FDA, CDC and NIH are all agencies within the federal Department of Health and Human Services. They have all gotten their stories straight. They know nothing and they are just following orders. This article will provide you with examples of how each of these 4 so-called public health agencies helped hide the truth, instead spreading identical false narratives. It made no difference which party was in power. Heil HHS!

    These agencies can't find a doggone problem in the 20 or so databases they are spending many $millions of your money to "study."

    Want to know the biggest conspiracy in the US right now? It is the HHS.

    FDA and CDC each have their own large sets of databases, about a dozen apiece, most of which they pay industry to access. They share management of the VAERS database, by statute. Why don't they share their other databases, since the taxpayer has already paid for them? One reason is that this gives them a reason to spend more loot, and to point fingers at each other when things aren't going well.

    FDA has access to a bunch of electronic databases it has termed the "BEST" Initiative, and it published a plan to use them to study heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, thrombocytopenia, etc. after COVID vaccinations back in July. Where are the results, FDA? What are you waiting for? (According to CDC, "More than 459 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through November 29, 2021."). It seems clear that we aren't going to be informed of FDA's findings until everyone possible has been vaccinated, at which point the results will be irrelevant.

    In October 2020, FDA's head of epidemiology and biostatistics, Steve Anderson, told us there were even more databases that would be studied. Here is what he promised would be studied:


    And here is a more recent FDA list of the databases FDA claims it is using to assess COVID vaccine safety, in addition to VAERS, which FDA and CDC jointly share:


    There was another system FDA promised to use to evaluate vaccine safety: PRISM. But we have heard nothing from PRISM regarding COVID vaccines, or anything else, lately. PRISM has disappeared.


    The Center for Biologics' Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology currently has 11 fulltime staff and 4 vacancies. Did the honest analysts leave? The other eleven seem to be sitting on their hands. Myocarditis is the most obvious COVID vaccine-associated severe adverse event. It usually happens within 4 days of the second shot. It is most common in young males. It has been reported many thousands of times to VAERS. Understanding it ought to be a slam dunk.

    On August 23, 2021, FDA had the temerity to write to BioNTech that its [FDA's] capabilities were inadequate to assess myocarditis, so BioNTech would have to do it for them. Here is what FDA wrote about its inability to use VAERS and its many other databases to assess the myocarditis risk:

    As noted above, the FDA acknowledges that “We have determined that an analysis of spontaneous post-marketing adverse events reported under section 505(k)(1) of the FDCA [in other words, analyzing VAERS--Nass] will not be sufficient to assess known serious risks of myocarditis and pericarditis and identify an unexpected serious risk of subclinical myocarditis.

    Furthermore, the pharmacovigilance system that FDA is required to maintain under section 505(k)(3) of the FDCA [in other words, FDA's many other databases that cost the taxpayer $zillions are also inadequate--Nass] is not sufficient to assess these serious risks.”

    NOT SUFFICIENT???? Is this a joke? All this data, plus software, plus a team of analysts, and FDA says it can't assess the risk of myocarditis, despite identifying thousands of cases?

    Unsaid, but implied, is that if FDA is incapable of understanding thousands of reported cases of myocarditis, it cannot or will not study the other serious adverse events that have been reported in conjunction with COVID vaccines.

    VAERS has operated for 30 years, collecting reports of vaccine adverse events. It averaged under 100 cases of myocarditis reported yearly until this year. Through November, CDC reports it received 1949 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis, just in those under 30. CDC didn't say what the total number of reports for all ages was.

    Somehow, FDA and CDC don't seem at all perturbed that the acknowledged reporting rate of myocarditis is over 20 times the average during the past 30 years. Why not?

    CDC has been even more shady in its analyses of safety as FDA, if that is even possible. Below, Nancy Messonier, then head of Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases at CDC, presented this list of databases that CDC would be using in the evaluation of COVID vaccine safety, on December 10, 2020. Apart from the V-safe database (which they stopped talking about last January, after it revealed that 1-3% of vaccine recipients required a doctor visit to deal with side effects), the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) (which somehow can't find any problems, not even myocarditis) and the VAERS database, all the other databases CDC promised to study have been MIA.


    NIH, whose job has never been to issue treatment guidelines, but instead to perform and fund research, suddenly took over the treatment guidelines for COVID early in 2020. It formed a committee of internal and eternal "experts" to make up the guidelines. How were they chosen? That is not clear, but what is clear is that 16 of these so-called experts had current or recent financial entanglements with Gilead, the maker of remdesivir. NIH and the US Army also owned pieces of remdesivir. A number of the experts had financial dealings with Merck. While NIH is the single biggest funder of medical research in the world, I cannot recall seeing a single study it funded on the safety of COVID vaccines. Yet somehow vaccines are its number one recommendation.

    It is not clear whether the NIH's guidelines committee is functional. The NIH has been sued to learn whether a vote was even taken by the committee regarding its ivermectin guidelines, which fly in the face of the evidence on ivermectin. And no one has answered the big question: how was NIH somehow authorized to issue treatment guidelines in the first place?

    Here is what has obviously occurred. All these agencies were told they had to keep quiet on vaccine problems (and perhaps problems of other COVID treatments), and they had to fiddle with their data or their analytic methods, or both, to get the required results. And there was to be NO BAD NEWS, no matter what. And no good news regarding generic treatments.

    As we have seen, the so-called scientists and physicians working as bureaucrats in these agencies all caved, sucked it up, did the dirty work, kept their jobs, and betrayed their oaths and the trust of the people of the USA and the world.

    Here is one example of their gross perfidy:
    Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH

    @CDCDirector

    #COVID19 vaccines are safe for children 5-11. They have undergone the most comprehensive & intense safety monitoring system in U.S. history. To date, no serious safety concerns have been identified. Vaccination is the best way to protect children from COVID-19. Dec. 10

    Yet here is what her own agency found 6 months ago:


    And in Hong Kong, health authorities found one case of myocarditis in every 2700 boys aged 12-17 after their second shot. Apparently CDC Director Walensky thinks that is safe. Is she really a doctor?

    It is important to call out the criminals. I hope everyone knows HHS gave the CDC Director's husband's company a $5 million dollar contract in taxpayer money, with options for $12 million more, presumably if she behaves herself... at our expense.

  • BIG PHARMA mRNA Profits Fund WEF/WHO Global Tyranny
    Inside Pharma Report

    Truth For Health Foundation
    Big Pharma is swimming in windfall profits with the global governments paying Pfizer, Moderna J&J, and Astra Zeneca to produce the experiemental mRNA COVID injections…that in turn are causes new and aggressive diseases that Big Pharma provides more of their high profit drugs to treat symptoms by every body part…that in turn make us all sicker and more burdened with side effects and complications…which in turn include aggressive, novel, stage 4 deadly “Turbo Cancers” that do not respond to traditional treatments. VOILA! Big Pharma to the “rescue” yet again…set to make trillions in profits this time from mRNA-based gene therapy “vaccines” for the tsunami of turbo cancers expected to rise dramatically again in 2025. Johnson & Johnson announced plans to shell out $2 billion to acquire the drug developer "Ambrx Biopharma" to treat Turbo Cancers with same unproven technology as Pfizer is launching with its $43 billion Seagen acquisition. Both expect to once again bring in windfall profits to provide “treatments” for diseases their own experimental COVID injections caused in the first place. Canadian oncologist and researcher discussed these plans, and the dangers, in more detail here:

    Today’s Inside Pharma Whistleblower Report experts discuss the dangers of the mRNA technology and the flagrant and illegals use of taxpayer funds in the UK to build these manufacturing facilities in the middle of small residential neighborhoods without any preliminary study of the human and wildlife health hazards and environmental risks of bringing in these biological materials without any regulatory oversight. The British government, Big Pharma, and WEF working together using taxpayer money and Big Pharma profits appear determined by any means possible to get mRNA and foreign DNA into human beings and all animals – domestic pets, food animals, and wildlife.

    BIG PHARMA mRNA Profits Fund WEF/WHO Global Tyranny Inside Pharma Report Truth For Health Foundation Big Pharma is swimming in windfall profits with the global governments paying Pfizer, Moderna J&J, and Astra Zeneca to produce the experiemental mRNA COVID injections…that in turn are causes new and aggressive diseases that Big Pharma provides more of their high profit drugs to treat symptoms by every body part…that in turn make us all sicker and more burdened with side effects and complications…which in turn include aggressive, novel, stage 4 deadly “Turbo Cancers” that do not respond to traditional treatments. VOILA! Big Pharma to the “rescue” yet again…set to make trillions in profits this time from mRNA-based gene therapy “vaccines” for the tsunami of turbo cancers expected to rise dramatically again in 2025. Johnson & Johnson announced plans to shell out $2 billion to acquire the drug developer "Ambrx Biopharma" to treat Turbo Cancers with same unproven technology as Pfizer is launching with its $43 billion Seagen acquisition. Both expect to once again bring in windfall profits to provide “treatments” for diseases their own experimental COVID injections caused in the first place. Canadian oncologist and researcher discussed these plans, and the dangers, in more detail here: Johnson & Johnson to acquire $2 billion drug developer "Ambrx Biopharma" to treat Turbo Cancers with same tech as Pfizer's $43 billion Seagen acquisition.

  • JUST A MINUTE PLEASE !(THE PREACHER'S CORNER)

    THE PREVALENT HORRORS IN THE LIVING OF A FALSE LIFE!(JN.8:44)

    This is a very wide and sensitive issue that has its claws and fangs in the entire human community...secular and religious.

    Called a *Fake life* in the secular, it's actually what is called *Hypocrisy* in the religious orbit. It doesn't matter which... it's a very dangerous situation to find one's self in.

    There's no doubt about it that,one of the sins of men that God loathes most is HYPOCRISY. He has zero tolerance for it,and He proved it...go through the times of Christ Jesus on earth, all the volumes of woes and curses that emanated from Him were on *hypocrites.*

    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (Joh 8: 44)

    I don't know why people feel it's much fun to fake a life than to be true to self. If you ask me, LIVING A FALSE LIFE IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT AND TASKING UNDERTAKINGS WE CAN EVER SADDLE OURSELVES WITH... IT'S A LIE(FALSEHOOD),THAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP MAINTAINING DAILY!

    So,why the stress to be what you're not currently at all costs,when you can be it, later with ease and peace of mind?

    Fake it till you make it(FITYMI) is a motivational concept through which the devil has been luring unsuspecting(but willing) minds into the abyss of despair and depression. This niche encourages you to pretend to be living your dream life or goals. And more often than not, it's usually with the absence of God in the picture, for God of course,never subscribes to impatience,which is what the concept is truly about.

    It takes your focus of God,and directs it on self and your supposed capabilities which you can unleash to get what you want...yes... that's it. THE FOCUS IS ON WHAT YOU *WANT* AND NOT WHAT YOU *NEED*

    Whether you believe it or not, the chief root of the *false life* is MALCONTENT... dissatisfaction with where God has placed us at the moment...the origin of the maxim"God helps those who help themselves" Nothing could be further from the Truth...God only helps those who WAIT on HIM. If you can do it yourself,why need God's Help at all?

    Somehow,we are all victims of this loathsome virus, but on different scales. From both sides of the aisle, let's see some of its traits;

    How to tell if we’re living a false life?

    We wear masks;
    When I say “masks”, I don’t mean face masks. No, I mean, , we tend to pretend to be something we are not. This starts with our face. We put up an * it's absolutely well* smile ,when deeply within us,we are hurting...dying silently...but we don't want to seen otherwise... everything's fine... fantastic marriage or relationship, good job,no debts,good everything...yet in our closets at night,our pillows become the recipients of our aggression.

    Wearing masks allows people to pretend to like us when they rather judge and criticize our differences. We cannot live an authentic life wearing those masks.
    We will know them by their overly-generous and cheerful nature.

    We say we’re “okay” all the time
    Maybe we are okay. But many of us are not, both physically and mentally, and we need serious help, for truthfully, we are falling apart inside. Maybe we are in pain from chronic illness but just get tired of complaining to others.

    So many times, depression and illness can get such a hold on us that we cannot explain what we are really feeling, and all we can do is say we’re okay. We resort to oversleeping ,drugs, alcohol or whatever stimulants to try escape our depression. Only to wake up to them again,and it becomes a habit...a terrible habit that can kill.

    Please,if we are doing this, try once to be strong and say, “No, I’m not okay, and I am not happy.” This could be our road to a real breakthrough.

    THE ASTONISHING SUCCESS OF THE DEVIL IN ENCOURAGING THE *FALSE LIFE* THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA!

    Life on social media is the true culprit of the false life. If the devil has been succeeding before...now he is having fantastic breakthroughs... breakthroughs that are destroying millions of lives daily,all over the globe. The social media has become a trump card...an ace in Lucifer's arsenal...and many souls are being lost daily through depression, suicide, homicides, immortality,drugs, internet frauds, killings and maimings, I don't where to start or stop.

    Every one, especially the teenagers and young adults want be the super stars they see online,when most of what they see aren't even real. Indeed, social media has become a DEATHTRAP into which many are willingly being caught daily.

    People flaunt their wealth and affluence on social media and on pages of our dailies. They exhibit their success and achievements on various social networking platforms. Yes, they appear perfect,but oftentimes the means aren't questioned...afterall they say the end justifies the means. BLATANT FALSEHOOD!

    Having to behold this glamour and perfection on our tablets and phones daily poses a constant threat to even a "supposed Saint." We are unconsciously pressured to meet up to a certain standard to be accepted...and HEREIN LIES THE SNARE THAT IMPRISON OUR SOULS, IF NOT VEHEMENTLY RESISTED WITH GOD'S WORD.

    Life on Instagram and Facebook is very different from real life. Because of the pressure to belong,many do things they ordinarily wouldn't do.

    To keep up the false lifestyle they flaunt on social media, you see many running into heavy debts to maintain the lie. Because they have to spend nonexistent huge sums of money to keep up the pretence...rent apartments they can't afford,drive big cars they can't maintain,go for designer clothing,custom made everything to put up an appearance.

    You are always restless, whenever you find yourself in environments where you may be known for whom you truly are... you are always on edge to avoid unforeseeable embarrassment.

    A painful tragedy of this lifestyle is, MISSING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE TRUE HELD YOU REQUIRE IN LIFE. Potential helpers will see you as okay and independent...having arrived. Even,pride borne out of shame won't allow you to seek help from one who could help you,for on Instagram,you are already his equal,if not better.

    The more you live in a false reality, the more you risk losing yourself and your sanity. Living a false life is draining and can be stressful if you don't know how to break free from your current situation and reclaim your authentic self.

    There's really very much on this,so much that space won't permit.
    But suffice to say that,we finally end up damaging our image(public or private), because it's just a matter of time, the truth of whom we really are will spill out. We won't be trusted anymore by anyone...we would be in the same boat like cheating spouses. OUR SELF ESTEEM WILL BE TERRIBLY BATTERED.

    When you spend your entire resources,time and energy trying to please people, trying to be what you feel they want you to be,and at the end the facade is removed...these very same people will do attack and criticise you to the point of you hurting yourself...they wouldn't want anything to do with you...your praise singers become your dirge singers... it's always very traumatizing.

    Like I said, there's a lot, and we will yet have to return. But , it will be more on the religious side of the false life.
    But, please,if you are caught in the web of this *craze*, you have to return...and fast too;

    15. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (1Jn 2: 15-17)

  • MoA Palestine Discussion
    Karl Sanchez

    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, attends the closing ceremony of a reconciliation dialogue among Palestinian factions and witnesses the signing of a declaration on ending division and strengthening unity by 14 Palestinian factions, in Beijing on July 23, 2024.

    The news that China was able to get all Palestinian factions to agree on paper to combine into one voice politically was the topic for today’s Moon of Alabama article, “China Brokers Unity In Palestine” that’s based on this SCMP article, although Global Times has its own version. As usual, there was a lot of discussion about this act making any difference. My part in the discourse began with my reply to this posting by anon2020 | Jul 23 2024 16:59 utc | 22:

    https://t.me/DDGeopolitics/117115

    Forwarded from China and Geopolitics with Danny Haiphong

    BREAKING: China reconciliation talks between Fatah, Hamas, Palestinian factions sign reconciliation agreement.

    The national factions agreed during their meetings in China to achieve comprehensive Palestinian national unity, including all Palestinian forces and factions within the framework of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). They committed to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with United Nations resolutions, and ensuring the right of return in accordance with Resolution 194.

    The participants also agreed on the Palestinian people's right to resist occupation and end it according to international laws and the United Nations Charter. They decided to form a temporary national unity government with the consensus of the Palestinian factions by decree of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas based on the Palestinian Basic Law. This government will begin by unifying all Palestinian institutions in the territories of the Palestinian state, initiating the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, and preparing for general elections under the supervision of the Central Elections Commission as soon as possible, according to the approved election law.

    The Palestinian factions meeting in Beijing are:

    - Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah)
    - Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas)
    - Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine
    - Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine
    - Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement
    - Palestinian People's Party
    - Palestinian Popular Struggle Front
    - Palestinian National Initiative Movement
    - Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command
    - Palestinian Democratic Union (FIDA)
    - Palestinian Liberation Front
    - Arab Liberation Front
    - Arab Palestinian Front
    - Vanguards of the Popular Liberation War (As-Sa'iqa Forces)

    The attendees agreed on the following points:

    1. Unifying national efforts to confront Zionist aggression and stop the genocide perpetrated by the occupying state and settler gangs supported by the United States of America. They also agreed to resist attempts to displace our people from their homeland, Palestine, and to force the Zionist entity to end its occupation of the Gaza Strip and all other occupied territories, while maintaining the unity of Palestinian lands, including the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

    2. The Palestinian factions welcome the opinion of the International Court of Justice, which affirmed the illegitimacy of the Israeli presence, occupation, and settlements on the land of the State of Palestine and emphasized the need for their removal as soon as possible.

    3. Based on the National Reconciliation Agreement signed in Cairo on 4/5/2011 and the Algiers Declaration signed on 12/10/2022, the factions agreed to continue following up on the implementation of agreements to end the division with the assistance of Egypt, Algeria, and friends in the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation as follows:

    a) Commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with relevant United Nations resolutions, particularly Resolutions 181 and 2334, and ensuring the right of return in accordance with Resolution 194.

    b) The right of the Palestinian people to resist occupation and end it in accordance with international laws and the United Nations Charter, and the right of peoples to self-determination and their struggle to achieve it by all available means.

    From Firas Palestine

    Here’s my reply:

    karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 17:28 utc | 30

    anon2020 | Jul 23 2024 16:59 utc | 22--

    Thanks for providing that readout. I'll remind barflies that Russia obtained a similar agreement about six weeks ago that was oral instead of written which was prominently mentioned by Lavrov during his remarks about the Palestinian Crisis at the UNSC last week. Plus, I'll note the intensity of Russian Minister Bogdanov's interactions with all regional players over the last week, including the weekend. However, as I wrote at the end of "Lavrov's Geopolitical Review for the Heads of Russian Non-Profits & NGOs":

    "I agree with his formulation that the UN isn’t working as designed because too many nations are violating the UN Charter instead of working together to uphold and enforce International Law. In other words, there’re more UN Charter violators than the USA, all of them being outlaws, while some also remain empires controlling other peoples in colonial fashion. And regarding the UN, its undergoing a rather longstanding problem that’s now a very serious crisis—the inability to enforce UNSC Resolutions on Palestine primarily because of two impediments: the Outlaw US Empire and its Zionist allies. The greater mass of the Global Majority agrees on what the solution ought to be but have so far failed to force its implementation. I know Lavrov didn’t mention this crisis, but the other two superpowers need to face the reality of their responsibilities and force the issue; otherwise, global security will forever remain a pipe dream." [Emphasis original]

    I didn't emphasize my final sentence, although it merits that treatment. IMO, the above argument is rock solid as is its conclusion. Force will need to be applied to obtain peace as the Zionists and their one ally only obey that formula. Crooke asks again and again for the world to look reality in the eye and not try to substitute wishful thinking in its place. Lavrov's UNSC presentation was very powerful but lacked noting the need for physical enforcement of UNSC and UNGA Resolutions as the only genuine means to make those Resolutions reality. The reality is the Arc of Resistance lacks the military power to affect that reality, although it can and will cause the Zionists great pain, but that pain alone isn't sufficient.

    An idealistic response came from juliania | Jul 23 2024 17:54 utc | 42:

    karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 17:28 utc | 30

    What I enjoy in the Beijing formulation, karlof1, is the inclusivity of the wording. This is an expansive declaration. It treats Palestine in its entirety. In this, it is quite a lot like BRICS.

    Wouldn't it be a wonder if Israelis who are aghast at the crimes of the Netanyahu clique ask to be included in the Palestinian cause, if only as observers at first, but as Gaza and the West Bank are restored under UN legislative edict, in that small country with the world savoring what is being accomplished, who knows? That is the way for jews to celebrate, truly celebrate, their heritage.

    If they do not, they will lose it.

    The problem isn’t Jews; it’s Zionists—they aren’t the same. Don Bacon | Jul 23 2024 20:53 utc | 83 then made the following point by posting this excerpt from the Tehran Times:

    Last week, Netanyahu unveiled his post-war Gaza plans. Based on the plans, Israel would take over security control of the entire Gaza Strip and the regime’s military would be granted unlimited freedom for operations inside the territory.
    Speculations regarding Gaza’s future have been further highlighted over the past days following the resignation of the Palestinian Authority prime minister.
    Mohammed Shtayyeh and his government submitted their resignations to President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday.
    “The upcoming phase and its challenges necessitate new governmental and political arrangements, taking into consideration the evolving situation in Gaza, national unity discussions, the urgent need for Palestinian-Palestinian consensus based on national unity, broad participation, solidarity, and the extension of authority over all of Palestine,” Shtayyeh said.
    The Palestinian premier’s announcement comes at a time when the PA faces intense pressure from the United States to reform and improve its governance in the West Bank.
    The White House wants a reformed PA being in control of both the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.
    But as the Israeli premier’s proposal shows, the regime is opposed to the prospect of the PA returning to Gaza after the war.
    Netanyahu has also dismissed the idea of establishing a Palestinian state.

    In fact the Knesset has voted against the Two-State Solution further entrenching its outlaw status. My good Aussie friend provided this additional bit:

    Putin said something some days ago along the lines 'we won’t sit and watch this forever'.

    I suspect this is a major step towards RoW bypassing UNSC where US/UK have veto power and actually enforcing the ICJ decisions.

    Peter AU1 | Jul 23 2024 21:34 utc | 89-

    Yes, patience isn't infinite for either Russia or China on this crisis. IMO, Netanyahu and all Zionists are begging for the sort of enforcement I advocate. Yes, it will cause more death and destruction, but that's going to happen anyway as the Zionists attempt to complete their Genocidal Project.

    Can anyone, especially those who are pushing the two state formula, or are ardently supporting those who are pushing the two state formula, name the reasons that the two state formula is beneficial to the Palestinians, that it is reasonable, fair, just and therefore a solution. And that the Palestinians should accept it, honestly and sincerely, as right, proper and fully justified.

    JB, you are absolutely correct: It is not reasonable, fair, or just. But colonialism is not about any of those things. Colonialism is about exercising raw power against weaker groups of people.

    In 1949 the country of Palestine was inhabited by mostly Arab Palestinians. After WW2 a new international organization called the United Nations was created to replace the League of Nations. At that time (1949) the UN had only 49 members, mostly western countries.

    Led by the British, the USA, and the Soviet Union, a vote was taken to split Palestine into two states so that the Jewish victims of the Holocaust (there were many more non Jewish victims) could have a place to live as Europeans were so anti-Semitic that Jews were not welcome in European countries. Anyway, that was the logic.

    But neither the British, nor the US, or the Soviet Union at that time, ever considered asking the Arab Palestinian people, who have lived in Palestine for hundreds of years before 1949, if they were in agreement with allowing European Jews to take control of more than half of Palestine in order to relive Europe of it "Jewish" problem. The two-state solution was a typical colonial European solution. The vote by 49 countries (I don't think the vote was unanimous if someone knows pleas respond) was racist and a violation of the spirit of the UN founding documents and ideas: The recent ICJ rulings make that quite clear.

    Agreed.

    First things first. China is a large enough power on the world stage and by now has acquired legitimacy on the world stage as an entity to be reckoned with, not matter how much the Outlaw Empire and Israel would like to put them on ignore.

    This is a fascinating development, leading to more and slightly different talk-talk. What's next, we'll see.

    Ed’s reply prompted the two following responses from me:

    karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 22:28 utc | 95:

    Ed | Jul 23 2024 22:07 utc | 92--

    I highly suggest reading the original Mandate for Palestine of 1922 where the following two aspects are delineated:

    Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favor of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country....

    ART. 2.
    The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine, irrespective of race and religion.

    Note, Palestine was to be a country, not two states within one area, that would provide a home for Jewish people within that one nation where all inhabitants are to be treated equally. That was the original intent of the Mandate. Even the Balfour Declaration expressed the rights of those already there were to be respected:

    "... it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

    What altered that equation was Zionist Terrorism pure and simple, yet swept under the rug since 1948, although it's quite clearly alive and well today and attempting to attain the goal of its founders--the complete elimination of all non-Jews from Palestine.

    My reply to Ed @95 Cont'd--

    To be fair, you're correct that the indigenous Palestinians were never asked, not in 1922 or afterward. The British, French and then the Americans viewed control of the levant necessary for geopolitical reasons that originated before the Napoleonic Wars when the British and French were geopolitical rivals. On one thing they agreed--the Ottoman Empire needed to be defeated and Islam forced to leave Europe and the Levant despite the latter being Islam's homeland.

    The current reality is extremely ugly. Palestinian leadership continues to say they are willing to live alongside anyone as long as they're peaceful and law-abiding people of good will--even Zionists after the decades of injustices. The Zionists on the other hand want to kill all the Palestinians and want to cohabitate with only fellow Zionists. Given that most Zionists are former Europeans, they have little claim to legitimacy in Palestine versus that of those that have lived there for centuries, Jews included. That Jews are capable of living elsewhere in peace with their fellows is proven by Iran/Persia, which means Zionists are an aberration much like Islamic State--Fanatical Anti-Human Zealots: Misfits to the nth degree.

    What's the Just Solution? Clearly, a Zionist state is Unjust and thus ruled out. A Palestine modeled on the original mandate being home to all willing to live in peace would be Just. The UN Two-State Solution would only be Just with Right of Return and payment of massive reparations, but the Zionists have refused to comply with that Law. So, we're left with only one solution--the Original Mandate Palestine--but to attain that outcome, force will be required to remove illegal Zionist squatters/occupiers, but remove them to where?

    Peter then provided what seems to be a cryptic reply but is well within the long running discourse of Palestine and the foundations of Zionism and Zionist-Christian Evangelism and the latter’s rise within the Outlaw US Empire:

    Peter AU1 | Jul 23 2024 23:03 utc | 97:

    karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 22:28 utc | 95

    That piece you quoted Karl is interesting reading.

    Some thoughts. Early in the 1900's it was Oxford University Press that printed the Scofield bible and sent it back into America.

    In much of what I have read - per the last hundred years or so of Anglo history, quite often it seems to me that men/people with genuinely good intentions are placed out in front to pave the way - to lay the foundations, for those with not so good intentions.

    And as of now, the final reply is from my very old friend psychohistorian who also reads the Gym, psychohistorian | Jul 23 2024 23:09 utc | 98:

    @ karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 22:56 utc | 95/96 with the comments about the death of Might-Makes-Right colonialism.....thanks

    Occupied Palestine is the last stand for that form of social organization and it is failing because it benefits only a few.

    China is providing the core support needed for disparate groups around the genocide/colonialism and so, the bully is being stood up to.

    What is next?

    Indeed, what is next? Al-Mayadeen reports obtaining a copy of the “Beijing Declaration on Ending Division and Strengthening Palestinian National Unity” but has yet to publish it on its website despite touting it has it, which is extremely frustrating. The Cradle said it has some of it at its telegram the text of which follows:

    "The Beijing Declaration to End Palestinian National Division: To unify national efforts to confront aggression and stop the genocide war."

    The following was agreed upon by 14 Palestinian factions at the end of the reconciliation meeting in Beijing, China today, including Hamas, PIJ, PFLP, DFLP, and Fatah:

    - The Palestinian factions welcome the opinion of the International Court of Justice, which confirmed the illegality of presence, occupation, and settlement.

    - Continuing to follow up on the implementation of the agreements to end the division that took place with the help of Egypt, Algeria, China, and Russia.

    - Commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Al-Quds in accordance with international resolutions, especially 181 and 2334, and ensuring the right of return.

    - We affirm the right of the Palestinian people to resist occupation and end it in accordance with international laws, the UN Charter, and the right of peoples to self-determination.

    - To form a temporary national unity government with the consensus of Palestinian factions and by a decision of the president based on the Palestinian Basic Law.

    - The formed government exercises its powers and authorities over all Palestinian territories, confirming the unity of the West Bank, Al-Quds, and the Gaza Strip.

    - To resist and thwart attempts to displace our people from their homeland, especially from the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Al-Quds.

    - Working to lift the barbaric siege on our people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank and deliver humanitarian and medical aid without restriction or condition.

    Note the very different wording from China’s title versus Palestinian’s. It seems to me that there ought to be more to the text, so we’ll need to wait and see what’s published further. Al-Mayadeen did publish an article based on an interview with a Hamas official based in Lebanon, Ahmad Abdel Hadi, that needs to be provided in full:

    The primary context for the Palestinian factions' agreement and the signing of the Beijing Declaration is the significant strategic achievement represented by Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, which made global public opinion recognize the Palestinian people's rights, said Hamas representative in Lebanon, Ahmad Abdel Hadi.

    Abdel Hadi told Al Mayadeen that the second context for the Beijing Declaration is the genocide and starvation war that the Israeli occupation has been waging in the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023.

    According to the Hamas official, this factor places a huge responsibility on those meeting in Beijing to unite against the Israeli aggression.

    He added that the third context for the agreement is the American-Israeli attempt, in collaboration with regional countries, to establish alternative forces to the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip, through Arab or Islamic forces under international sponsorship to oversee relief and reconstruction operations.

    The official made it clear that the Palestinian people and Resistance will consider any foreign force in the Gaza Strip as an "occupying force" and would treat it as such, "an occupation".

    Abdel Hadi praised the Beijing Declaration, pointing out that it blocks American-Israeli schemes and plans that serve the occupation's interests and that seek to establish a new reality by offering alternatives to the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip.

    He revealed that the agreement outlines a transitional phase until the election of a Palestinian National Council and the formation of a Palestinian government. It also includes coordinating meetings of the unified leadership framework, which includes all the general secretaries of the Palestinian factions and acts as a guarantor for outlining and scheduling what was agreed upon in the Beijing Declaration.

    The Hamas official highlighted China's role as a guarantor through close follow-up with the general secretaries of the Palestinian factions and "all necessary parties," as well as those involved in reconciliation efforts and previous dialogue sponsorships, such as Egypt and Algeria, as stipulated in the agreement.

    He noted that the declaration included the minimum common points among all factions, "imposed by the prevailing situation, necessities, and national responsibility."

    According to Abdel Hadi, the agreement respects "the armed Resistance of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front, and several factions in the Gaza Strip, as well as the popular uprising in the West Bank," in addition to "the popular and political resistance of Fatah and PLO factions."

    The Hamas official underlined that the Palestinian Resistance factions believe in establishing a Palestinian state on the entire occupied Palestinian territory, with al-Quds as its capital, without recognizing the Israeli entity.

    He said the factions would respond to upcoming developments according to changing realities.

    He noted that the Resistance forces can deal with "the current reality based on the global recognition of Palestinian rights if the world can provide a [Palestinian] state within the 1967 borders with full sovereignty and without recognizing Israel and preserve the right of return as a step toward fully liberating our land."

    Elsewhere, Abdel Hadi stated that any effort to bring the Palestinian factions closer and achieve reconciliation "will upset the occupation," which has long worked to "strengthen division through various means," confirming that the actual implementation of the agreement signed in Beijing "greatly disturbs" "Israel".

    In this context, the Israeli "Institute for National Security Studies" (INSS) suggested earlier that, although the path to reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas is a possibly long one, it is nevertheless a blow to "Israel".

    The INSS indicated that discussions in Beijing, together with China's support at the UN, maintain Hamas' legitimacy, making it harder for the Israeli occupation to establish a "the day after" solution in Gaza without the movement's involvement. [My Emphasis]

    I note that Egypt, Algeria, China, and Russia are being noted for their help along with China in overcoming “the division.” The Hamas official seems to suggest that the Palestinians want to reclaim all of Mandate Palestine. Nowhere is the Two-State Solution mentioned, although UNGA Resolution 181 is viewed in a positive light despite the fact that it indeed proposed a two-state solution from Point 9:

    During the transitional period no Jew shall be permitted to establish residence in the area of the proposed Arab State, and no Arab shall be permitted to establish residence in the area of the proposed Jewish State, except by special leave of the Commission.

    Again, I return to my assessment that force will be required to attain compliance as the Zionists refuse to negotiate or obey International Law of almost any sort—and it’s not just the Zionist government of Occupied Palestine, but a large majority of its populous who have also proven to be outlaws and complicit in the Zionist Genocide Project. IMO, Palestinians understand that reality while the two major powers that have the ability to alter the issue have yet to accept that reality despite their good intentions. I’m certain Netanyahu will utter menacing words at the Palestinians and Chinese and will be applauded by the US Zionist Congress who are just as complicit in the Zionist Genocide of Palestinians as their Zionist buddies.

    MoA Palestine Discussion Karl Sanchez Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, attends the closing ceremony of a reconciliation dialogue among Palestinian factions and witnesses the signing of a declaration on ending division and strengthening unity by 14 Palestinian factions, in Beijing on July 23, 2024. The news that China was able to get all Palestinian factions to agree on paper to combine into one voice politically was the topic for today’s Moon of Alabama article, “China Brokers Unity In Palestine” that’s based on this SCMP article, although Global Times has its own version. As usual, there was a lot of discussion about this act making any difference. My part in the discourse began with my reply to this posting by anon2020 | Jul 23 2024 16:59 utc | 22: https://t.me/DDGeopolitics/117115 Forwarded from China and Geopolitics with Danny Haiphong 🚨BREAKING: πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¨πŸ‡³China reconciliation talks between Fatah, Hamas, Palestinian factions sign reconciliation agreement. The national factions agreed during their meetings in China to achieve comprehensive Palestinian national unity, including all Palestinian forces and factions within the framework of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). They committed to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with United Nations resolutions, and ensuring the right of return in accordance with Resolution 194. The participants also agreed on the Palestinian people's right to resist occupation and end it according to international laws and the United Nations Charter. They decided to form a temporary national unity government with the consensus of the Palestinian factions by decree of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas based on the Palestinian Basic Law. This government will begin by unifying all Palestinian institutions in the territories of the Palestinian state, initiating the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, and preparing for general elections under the supervision of the Central Elections Commission as soon as possible, according to the approved election law. The Palestinian factions meeting in Beijing are: - Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah) - Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) - Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine - Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement - Palestinian People's Party - Palestinian Popular Struggle Front - Palestinian National Initiative Movement - Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command - Palestinian Democratic Union (FIDA) - Palestinian Liberation Front - Arab Liberation Front - Arab Palestinian Front - Vanguards of the Popular Liberation War (As-Sa'iqa Forces) The attendees agreed on the following points: 1. Unifying national efforts to confront Zionist aggression and stop the genocide perpetrated by the occupying state and settler gangs supported by the United States of America. They also agreed to resist attempts to displace our people from their homeland, Palestine, and to force the Zionist entity to end its occupation of the Gaza Strip and all other occupied territories, while maintaining the unity of Palestinian lands, including the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. 2. The Palestinian factions welcome the opinion of the International Court of Justice, which affirmed the illegitimacy of the Israeli presence, occupation, and settlements on the land of the State of Palestine and emphasized the need for their removal as soon as possible. 3. Based on the National Reconciliation Agreement signed in Cairo on 4/5/2011 and the Algiers Declaration signed on 12/10/2022, the factions agreed to continue following up on the implementation of agreements to end the division with the assistance of Egypt, Algeria, and friends in the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation as follows: a) Commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with relevant United Nations resolutions, particularly Resolutions 181 and 2334, and ensuring the right of return in accordance with Resolution 194. b) The right of the Palestinian people to resist occupation and end it in accordance with international laws and the United Nations Charter, and the right of peoples to self-determination and their struggle to achieve it by all available means. From Firas Palestine Here’s my reply: karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 17:28 utc | 30 anon2020 | Jul 23 2024 16:59 utc | 22-- Thanks for providing that readout. I'll remind barflies that Russia obtained a similar agreement about six weeks ago that was oral instead of written which was prominently mentioned by Lavrov during his remarks about the Palestinian Crisis at the UNSC last week. Plus, I'll note the intensity of Russian Minister Bogdanov's interactions with all regional players over the last week, including the weekend. However, as I wrote at the end of "Lavrov's Geopolitical Review for the Heads of Russian Non-Profits & NGOs": "I agree with his formulation that the UN isn’t working as designed because too many nations are violating the UN Charter instead of working together to uphold and enforce International Law. In other words, there’re more UN Charter violators than the USA, all of them being outlaws, while some also remain empires controlling other peoples in colonial fashion. And regarding the UN, its undergoing a rather longstanding problem that’s now a very serious crisis—the inability to enforce UNSC Resolutions on Palestine primarily because of two impediments: the Outlaw US Empire and its Zionist allies. The greater mass of the Global Majority agrees on what the solution ought to be but have so far failed to force its implementation. I know Lavrov didn’t mention this crisis, but the other two superpowers need to face the reality of their responsibilities and force the issue; otherwise, global security will forever remain a pipe dream." [Emphasis original] I didn't emphasize my final sentence, although it merits that treatment. IMO, the above argument is rock solid as is its conclusion. Force will need to be applied to obtain peace as the Zionists and their one ally only obey that formula. Crooke asks again and again for the world to look reality in the eye and not try to substitute wishful thinking in its place. Lavrov's UNSC presentation was very powerful but lacked noting the need for physical enforcement of UNSC and UNGA Resolutions as the only genuine means to make those Resolutions reality. The reality is the Arc of Resistance lacks the military power to affect that reality, although it can and will cause the Zionists great pain, but that pain alone isn't sufficient. An idealistic response came from juliania | Jul 23 2024 17:54 utc | 42: karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 17:28 utc | 30 What I enjoy in the Beijing formulation, karlof1, is the inclusivity of the wording. This is an expansive declaration. It treats Palestine in its entirety. In this, it is quite a lot like BRICS. Wouldn't it be a wonder if Israelis who are aghast at the crimes of the Netanyahu clique ask to be included in the Palestinian cause, if only as observers at first, but as Gaza and the West Bank are restored under UN legislative edict, in that small country with the world savoring what is being accomplished, who knows? That is the way for jews to celebrate, truly celebrate, their heritage. If they do not, they will lose it. The problem isn’t Jews; it’s Zionists—they aren’t the same. Don Bacon | Jul 23 2024 20:53 utc | 83 then made the following point by posting this excerpt from the Tehran Times: Last week, Netanyahu unveiled his post-war Gaza plans. Based on the plans, Israel would take over security control of the entire Gaza Strip and the regime’s military would be granted unlimited freedom for operations inside the territory. Speculations regarding Gaza’s future have been further highlighted over the past days following the resignation of the Palestinian Authority prime minister. Mohammed Shtayyeh and his government submitted their resignations to President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday. “The upcoming phase and its challenges necessitate new governmental and political arrangements, taking into consideration the evolving situation in Gaza, national unity discussions, the urgent need for Palestinian-Palestinian consensus based on national unity, broad participation, solidarity, and the extension of authority over all of Palestine,” Shtayyeh said.

In much of what I have read - per the last hundred years or so of Anglo history, quite often it seems to me that men/people with genuinely good intentions are placed out in front to pave the way - to lay the foundations, for those with not so good intentions. And as of now, the final reply is from my very old friend psychohistorian who also reads the Gym, psychohistorian | Jul 23 2024 23:09 utc | 98: @ karlof1 | Jul 23 2024 22:56 utc | 95/96 with the comments about the death of Might-Makes-Right colonialism.....thanks Occupied Palestine is the last stand for that form of social organization and it is failing because it benefits only a few. China is providing the core support needed for disparate groups around the genocide/colonialism and so, the bully is being stood up to. What is next? Indeed, what is next? Al-Mayadeen reports obtaining a copy of the “Beijing Declaration on Ending Division and Strengthening Palestinian National Unity” but has yet to publish it on its website despite touting it has it, which is extremely frustrating. The Cradle said it has some of it at its telegram the text of which follows: "The Beijing Declaration to End Palestinian National Division: To unify national efforts to confront aggression and stop the genocide war." The following was agreed upon by 14 Palestinian factions at the end of the reconciliation meeting in Beijing, China today, including Hamas, PIJ, PFLP, DFLP, and Fatah: — - The Palestinian factions welcome the opinion of the International Court of Justice, which confirmed the illegality of presence, occupation, and settlement. - Continuing to follow up on the implementation of the agreements to end the division that took place with the help of Egypt, Algeria, China, and Russia. - Commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Al-Quds in accordance with international resolutions, especially 181 and 2334, and ensuring the right of return. - We affirm the right of the Palestinian people to resist occupation and end it in accordance with international laws, the UN Charter, and the right of peoples to self-determination. - To form a temporary national unity government with the consensus of Palestinian factions and by a decision of the president based on the Palestinian Basic Law. - The formed government exercises its powers and authorities over all Palestinian territories, confirming the unity of the West Bank, Al-Quds, and the Gaza Strip. - To resist and thwart attempts to displace our people from their homeland, especially from the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Al-Quds. - Working to lift the barbaric siege on our people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank and deliver humanitarian and medical aid without restriction or condition. Note the very different wording from China’s title versus Palestinian’s. It seems to me that there ought to be more to the text, so we’ll need to wait and see what’s published further. Al-Mayadeen did publish an article based on an interview with a Hamas official based in Lebanon, Ahmad Abdel Hadi, that needs to be provided in full: The primary context for the Palestinian factions' agreement and the signing of the Beijing Declaration is the significant strategic achievement represented by Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, which made global public opinion recognize the Palestinian people's rights, said Hamas representative in Lebanon, Ahmad Abdel Hadi. Abdel Hadi told Al Mayadeen that the second context for the Beijing Declaration is the genocide and starvation war that the Israeli occupation has been waging in the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023. According to the Hamas official, this factor places a huge responsibility on those meeting in Beijing to unite against the Israeli aggression. He added that the third context for the agreement is the American-Israeli attempt, in collaboration with regional countries, to establish alternative forces to the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip, through Arab or Islamic forces under international sponsorship to oversee relief and reconstruction operations. The official made it clear that the Palestinian people and Resistance will consider any foreign force in the Gaza Strip as an "occupying force" and would treat it as such, "an occupation". Abdel Hadi praised the Beijing Declaration, pointing out that it blocks American-Israeli schemes and plans that serve the occupation's interests and that seek to establish a new reality by offering alternatives to the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip. He revealed that the agreement outlines a transitional phase until the election of a Palestinian National Council and the formation of a Palestinian government. It also includes coordinating meetings of the unified leadership framework, which includes all the general secretaries of the Palestinian factions and acts as a guarantor for outlining and scheduling what was agreed upon in the Beijing Declaration. The Hamas official highlighted China's role as a guarantor through close follow-up with the general secretaries of the Palestinian factions and "all necessary parties," as well as those involved in reconciliation efforts and previous dialogue sponsorships, such as Egypt and Algeria, as stipulated in the agreement. He noted that the declaration included the minimum common points among all factions, "imposed by the prevailing situation, necessities, and national responsibility." According to Abdel Hadi, the agreement respects "the armed Resistance of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front, and several factions in the Gaza Strip, as well as the popular uprising in the West Bank," in addition to "the popular and political resistance of Fatah and PLO factions." The Hamas official underlined that the Palestinian Resistance factions believe in establishing a Palestinian state on the entire occupied Palestinian territory, with al-Quds as its capital, without recognizing the Israeli entity. He said the factions would respond to upcoming developments according to changing realities. He noted that the Resistance forces can deal with "the current reality based on the global recognition of Palestinian rights if the world can provide a [Palestinian] state within the 1967 borders with full sovereignty and without recognizing Israel and preserve the right of return as a step toward fully liberating our land." Elsewhere, Abdel Hadi stated that any effort to bring the Palestinian factions closer and achieve reconciliation "will upset the occupation," which has long worked to "strengthen division through various means," confirming that the actual implementation of the agreement signed in Beijing "greatly disturbs" "Israel". In this context, the Israeli "Institute for National Security Studies" (INSS) suggested earlier that, although the path to reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas is a possibly long one, it is nevertheless a blow to "Israel". The INSS indicated that discussions in Beijing, together with China's support at the UN, maintain Hamas' legitimacy, making it harder for the Israeli occupation to establish a "the day after" solution in Gaza without the movement's involvement. [My Emphasis] I note that Egypt, Algeria, China, and Russia are being noted for their help along with China in overcoming “the division.” The Hamas official seems to suggest that the Palestinians want to reclaim all of Mandate Palestine. Nowhere is the Two-State Solution mentioned, although UNGA Resolution 181 is viewed in a positive light despite the fact that it indeed proposed a two-state solution from Point 9: During the transitional period no Jew shall be permitted to establish residence in the area of the proposed Arab State, and no Arab shall be permitted to establish residence in the area of the proposed Jewish State, except by special leave of the Commission. Again, I return to my assessment that force will be required to attain compliance as the Zionists refuse to negotiate or obey International Law of almost any sort—and it’s not just the Zionist government of Occupied Palestine, but a large majority of its populous who have also proven to be outlaws and complicit in the Zionist Genocide Project. IMO, Palestinians understand that reality while the two major powers that have the ability to alter the issue have yet to accept that reality despite their good intentions. I’m certain Netanyahu will utter menacing words at the Palestinians and Chinese and will be applauded by the US Zionist Congress who are just as complicit in the Zionist Genocide of Palestinians as their Zionist buddies. * * * Like what you’ve been reading at Karlof1’s Substack?

    Israel blocks Palestinians from 80 percent of Gaza

    The UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) says the Israeli military has placed more than 80 percent of the Gaza Strip “under evacuation orders or designated as a no-go zone”.

    “We just keep hearing the same question: Where do I go?” UNRWA said on X, quoting its spokeswoman’s remarks to the BBC’s Radio 4.

    It comes a day after Israel ordered thousands of people to flee from the eastern parts of the Khan Younis governorate to al-Mawasi in the west.

    Death toll from Israeli bombing in Khan Younis rises to 89

    At least 89 people have been killed in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis governorate, according to the enclave’s Government Media Office, since Israel launched a new military operation in the area yesterday morning, without giving civilians time to flee. Hundreds of people are also reported injured.

    Palestinians, including women and children, living in the east of Khan Younis city move towards safe areas with whatever belongings they can take with them after Israel announced that an operation will be carried out and ordered the Palestinians to evacuate the area immediately in Khan Yunis, Gaza on July 22, 2024.

    NOTE: The targeting of aid workers in Gaza by Israel has been a long-standing pattern. Since October 2023, at least 278 aid workers were reported killed in Gaza, including 201 UN staff members.

    Following an Israeli attack on a high-profile humanitarian aid convoy in early April, MSF official Christopher Lockyear decried what was already a norm: “This pattern of attacks is either intentional or indicative of reckless incompetence.”


    US Capitol Police arrest activists calling for Israel arms embargo

    Al Jazeera reports: The rotunda of an office building in the United States Capitol complex filled in minutes with hundreds of people who appeared as if from nowhere, as part of a surprise protest against Israel’s war in Gaza.

    “Let Gaza live,” they chanted in unison inside the Cannon House Office Building, removing their outer garments to reveal matching red T-shirts.

    One side of the shirt read, “Jews say stop arming Israel.” The other side: “Not in our name.”

    Tuesday’s coordinated protest, led by Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), took Congressional staffers and law enforcement agents aback, as it came together within minutes.

    But the crackdown started almost immediately after the protesters assembled. Capitol Police quickly declared the area a closed “zone” and arrested hundreds of demonstrators who refused to leave.

    “This is a moment in history where we have to say we stood up for Palestinian freedom. We stood up to end this genocide,” said protester Liv Kunins-Berkowitz.

    “For so many of us, we are the descendants who survived ethnic cleansing and genocide. Our ancestors and grandparents taught us that the worst thing to do in these moments is to be a bystander.”

    The activists are of all faiths, races, and ethnicities. They’re working to overcome the powerful Israel lobby.

    Seven major US labor unions call on Biden to ‘shut off military aid to Israel’

    The Guardian reports: Seven major US labor unions representing about 6 million workers sent a letter to Joe Biden on Tuesday calling on his administration to “immediately halt all military aid to Israel” ahead of a visit to the US from Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, this week.

    The unions that signed on to the letter include the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), American Postal Workers Union (APWU), International Union of Painters (IUPAT), National Education Association (NEA), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), United Auto Workers (UAW) and United Electrical Workers (UE).

    “Our unions are hearing the cries of humanity as this vicious war continues,” said Mark Dimondstein, the APWU president, in a press release. “Working people and our unions are horrified that our tax dollars are financing this ongoing tragedy. We need a ceasefire now, and the best way to secure that is to shut off US military aid to Israel.”

    The UAW stated, “This week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to come to Congress to ask our government to keep supporting this war [in Gaza]. We reject this insult to all those calling for peace and justice.”


    Amnesty issues fresh warning about US complicity in Israeli war crimes

    Middle East Monitor reports: Amnesty International has issued a fresh warning about US complicity in Israeli war crimes as Benjamin Netanyahu visits Washington. The human rights NGO also called on the US to halt arms exports to Israel with Netanyahu set to meet Joe Biden and possibly Kamala Harris during his trip.

    In the absence of a UN Security Council arms embargo, Amnesty is calling on all countries to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Israel immediately, until there is no longer a substantial risk that arms could be used to commit or facilitate serious violations of international human rights or humanitarian law.

    Countries which continue to transfer arms to Israel with knowledge that the recipient state or group is using these arms to commit “internationally wrongful acts” — which include crimes under international law such as war crimes and crimes against humanity — are not only violating their obligation to ensure respect for international humanitarian law, said Amnesty today, but are in fact also assisting these violations.

    Companies manufacturing and exporting arms also have a responsibility to respect human rights and international humanitarian law throughout their value chains. Any companies providing material assistance in the commission of a war crime can be found legally liable for such a crime.

    “The US government has been presented with ample evidence from experts around the world that US-origin arms have been used in war crimes and unlawful killings by the Israeli government.”

    Continued weapons transfers will make the US “complicit” in violations of international law committed with these arms, explained the Amnesty official.

    NOTE: Weapons transfers to armed Palestinian groups also fall within Amnesty’s call for embargo – although in reality, international law supports the efforts of resistance groups against an occupying power, the UN extending that right to the point of armed resistance.

    Israeli executives, former security officials denounce Netanyahu ahead of address to US Congress

    Andalou Agency reports: Dozens of Israeli executives, academics, and former national security officials denounced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, warning in a letter to US congressional leaders that he represents an “existential threat” to the US and Israel.

    The letter signed by 31 Israelis comes on the eve of Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress where many lawmakers are expected to not attend or stage protests to interrupt the Israeli leader’s speech. It is addressed to House Speaker Mike Johnson, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    “We cannot overstate this: Prime Minister Netanyahu poses an existential threat to the State of Israel. He has no clear strategic objectives for the war in Gaza, no plan for the day after, nor a strategy for how to deal with the existential threat of Iran. For decades, he has been inciting Israelis against each other, damaging our national social fabric, dramatically harming our defense capabilities, eroding our economy and devastating our international standing,” the authors wrote. A copy of the letter was posted publicly by CNN.

    “Further, Netanyahu severely harms the US national security interests through his approach to this war, which adversely impacts American policy in the Middle East and beyond and further endangers Israel,” they added.

    Prominent signatories include former Israeli military chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Haloutz, ex-Mossad Director Tamir Pardo, former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Nobel Prize Laureate Aaron Ciechanover and Israel’s former UN envoy Gabriela Shalev.

    Netanyahu’s speech to Congress is a ‘celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians’

    Middle East Eye reports: Palestinian-American Representative Rashida Tlaib called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress “a celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians”.

    Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American member of Congress, said that “Netanyahu is a war criminal committing genocide against the Palestinian people. It is utterly disgraceful that leaders from both parties have invited him to address Congress. He should be arrested and sent to the International Criminal Court.”

    She further remarked, “Make no mistake: this event is a celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. It is a sad day for our democracy when my colleagues will smile for a photo op with a man who is actively committing genocide.

    “It is hypocritical to claim concern about the massive death toll of innocent civilians, then turn around and welcome the person responsible for these war crimes to our Capitol. Their silence is betrayal, and history will remember them accordingly. Our government must stop supporting and funding this genocide now.”

    Israel was founded in 1948 through a war of ethnic cleansing.

    Schumer says he will attend Netanyahu’s Congress speech despite ‘disagreements’

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at Congress:

    “Even though I disagree with many of Bibi Netanyahu’s policies, I will attend this speech because the United States’ relationship with Israel remains ironclad and transcends any prime minister.”

    Schumer endorsed Kamala Harris for president.





    Ha’aretz reports: The Democratic Majority for Israel wholeheartedly endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris for the party’s nomination for the upcoming presidential election.

    Israeli government quietly sends millions to unauthorized West Bank settler outposts

    Associated Press reports: The Israeli government has budgeted millions of dollars to protect small, illegal, unauthorized Jewish farms in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, underwriting tiny outposts meant to grow into full-fledged , illegal settlements, according to an anti-settlement monitoring group.

    Documents uncovered by Peace Now illustrate how Israel’s pro-settler government has quietly poured tens of millions of dollars into the unauthorized outposts, which are separate from its more than 100 officially recognized – but also illegal – settlements. Some of those outposts have been linked to settler violence against Palestinians and are sanctioned by the U.S.

    The group estimates approximately 500 people live on the small, unauthorized farms and 25,000 more live in larger outposts. Those outposts, while not officially authorized by the government, often receive tacit support before they are retroactively legalized.

    Rights groups say the expanding network of remote farms atop West Bank hilltops are the primary drivers of violence and displacement of Palestinians.

    On Friday, the top United Nations court said Israel’s presence in the Palestinian territories is unlawful and called for an immediate halt to settlement construction.

    NOTE: While there has been an uptick in settler violence since October 7th, every one of the more than 700,000 Israeli settlers living on Palestinian land are violating international law.

    Israel has illegally built around 280 settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, and incentivized Israeli Jews to live in them.

    Many Palestinians believe that Israeli settlements and settlers on Palestinian land are the main barrier to any lasting peace agreement.

    Settlers, moreover, have a history of violence against Palestinians, often with the assistance of Israeli military forces.

    NOTE: The International Solidarity Movement recently posted this video of Israeli settlers brutally attacking both Palestinians and international volunteers – one day after the ICJ ruled that the Israeli occupation and settlements are illegal.

    350 foreign policy and national security personages endorse Kamala Harris, highlighting her involvement in the U.S.’ ‘defense of Israel when Iran attacked in April’

    Ha’aretz reports: 350 leading foreign policy and national security experts endorsed U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris’s candidacy for U.S. President, calling her “the best qualified person to lead our nation as commander in chief.”

    “She has been by the president’s side in the Oval Office and in the Situation Room managing high-stakes international crises and advising on the toughest decisions,” they wrote, highlighting “the United States’ defense of Israel when Iran attacked in April 2024.”

    Among those to sign the letter include former U.S. Ambassadors to Israel Tom Nides and Daniel Kurtzer, former Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Frank Lowenstein, former national security advisers Susan Rice and Thomas E. Donilon, former secretaries of state John F. Kerry and Hillary Clinton; former secretaries of defense Chuck Hagel and Leon Panetta; and former top intelligence officials Michael Hayden and James Clapper.

    NOTE: While it’s not hard to find cheerleaders for Israel in its genocidal war on Gaza, voters themselves are not so enthusiastic: A Gallup poll in March showed that 55 percent of respondents disapproved of the Israeli military’s actions in the Gaza Strip. Among Democratic Party voters, the percentage was even higher, with 75 percent of respondents expressing a negative view of Israel’s actions, while 60 percent of independents also said they disapproved.

    Politicians have failed to grasp the significance of millions of Americans across the country protesting for ceasefire and an end to military aid to Israel – wrongly accusing them of antisemitism and ignoring their message.

    Palestinians accuse Israel of Olympic Truce breach

    Al Jazeera reports: The Palestine Olympic Committee has called for the “immediate exclusion of Israel from the Paris Olympics 2024”.

    In a letter to Thomas Bach, head of the International Olympic Committee, the Palestinians said Israel has been engaged in violations that include illegal colonial settlement, occupation and annexation, as well as genocidal incitement.

    The letter also stressed that there has been a breach of the Olympic truce. The UN General Assembly Resolution on the Paris 2024 Olympics mandates an Olympic truce from July 19 to September 15, 2024, to ensure a peaceful environment for the Games.

    “However, Israel has violated this truce within the first 24 hours by continuing its bombing on Gaza, resulting in the killing of at least 70 Palestinians. This contravention underscores the urgent need for OIC and FIFA to act in line with its statutes and promote respect for international human rights law,” the letter said.

    The letter was also sent to FIFA President Gianni Infantino by the Palestine Football Association.

    NOTE: At least 265 Palestinian sportsmen have been killed in Israeli attacks since last October, according to the Palestinian Football Association.

    “The victims include players, administrators and technical staff, including 11 in the West Bank” Jibril Rajoub, head of the association, told reporters.

    “Dozens of athletes remain under the rubble, and we are unable to count their number,” he said. “Many athletes are also held in Israeli jails.”

    Many West Bank deaths on Tuesday

    Five Palestinians were killed Tuesday by Israeli occupation army gunfire in Tulkarm camp, including three men, a young girl, and a 50-year-old woman. Four of the bodies were confiscated by Israeli forces. The men were reportedly a Qassam commander and two members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
    A 13-year-old child from the town of Bal’a, east of Tulkarem, succumbed Tuesday to critical injuries he sustained by Israeli forces’ live bullets about two weeks ago.
    A 39-year-old Palestinian man was Tuesday morning killed by Israeli occupation forces in the town of Sa’ir, northeast of Hebron.
    A young man, age 22, was Tuesday killed by Israeli occupation army gunfire from the town of Shuyoukh, northeast of Hebron.

    Palestinians hail new reconciliation deal amid Israeli opposition

    Andalou Agency reports: A China-mediated agreement to heal the years-long rift between Palestinian factions and form a national unity government has been met with Palestinian praise and Israeli opposition.

    The Palestinian groups on Monday reached a reconciliation agreement following three days of intensive talks in the Chinese capital Beijing to end their political division since 2007.

    Representatives of 14 Palestinian groups, including the rival Fatah and Hamas movements, signed a new statement pledging to end the division and strengthen unity.

    The agreement aims at maintaining Palestinian control over the Gaza Strip following the end of Israel’s ongoing offensive on the enclave.

    Signatories of the agreement said they would form an interim national unity government to supervise the reconstruction of the war-torn Gaza Strip and hold new elections.

    “The Beijing declaration is an additional positive step towards achieving Palestinian national unity,” Husam Badran, a member of Hamas political bureau, said in a statement.

    He said the factions agreed to form a national unity government to supervise Gaza reconstruction and prepare the conditions for holding elections.

    The agreement also underlined the right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation and to self-determination based on international laws and UN Charter.

    STATISTICS OCTOBER 7 – JULY 23:

    Palestinian death toll from October 7 – July 23: at least 39,668* (39,090 in Gaza* – 11,445 women (30%), 16,034 children as of June 17. [The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.]

    This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 587 in the West Bank (~140 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 46,848 Palestinian deaths.

    Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37,396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza.

    Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza.

    At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank).
    At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**.
    About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced.
    2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity.
    Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 23: at least 95,567 (including at least 90,147 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children). [It remains unknown how man Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.]

    Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 23: ~1,481 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 326 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured.

    Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%.

    NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers.

    *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.**

    Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals.

    † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

Israel blocks Palestinians from 80 percent of Gaza The UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) says the Israeli military has placed more than 80 percent of the Gaza Strip “under evacuation orders or designated as a no-go zone”. “We just keep hearing the same question: Where do I go?” UNRWA said on X, quoting its spokeswoman’s remarks to the BBC’s Radio 4. It comes a day after Israel ordered thousands of people to flee from the eastern parts of the Khan Younis governorate to al-Mawasi in the west. Death toll from Israeli bombing in Khan Younis rises to 89 At least 89 people have been killed in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis governorate, according to the enclave’s Government Media Office, since Israel launched a new military operation in the area yesterday morning, without giving civilians time to flee. Hundreds of people are also reported injured. Palestinians, including women and children, living in the east of Khan Younis city move towards safe areas with whatever belongings they can take with them after Israel announced that an operation will be carried out and ordered the Palestinians to evacuate the area immediately in Khan Yunis, Gaza on July 22, 2024.

Since October 2023, at least 278 aid workers were reported killed in Gaza, including 201 UN staff members. Following an Israeli attack on a high-profile humanitarian aid convoy in early April, MSF official Christopher Lockyear decried what was already a norm: “This pattern of attacks is either intentional or indicative of reckless incompetence.” US Capitol Police arrest activists calling for Israel arms embargo Al Jazeera reports: The rotunda of an office building in the United States Capitol complex filled in minutes with hundreds of people who appeared as if from nowhere, as part of a surprise protest against Israel’s war in Gaza. “Let Gaza live,” they chanted in unison inside the Cannon House Office Building, removing their outer garments to reveal matching red T-shirts. One side of the shirt read, “Jews say stop arming Israel.” The other side: “Not in our name.” Tuesday’s coordinated protest, led by Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), took Congressional staffers and law enforcement agents aback, as it came together within minutes. But the crackdown started almost immediately after the protesters assembled. Capitol Police quickly declared the area a closed “zone” and arrested hundreds of demonstrators who refused to leave. “This is a moment in history where we have to say we stood up for Palestinian freedom. We stood up to end this genocide,” said protester Liv Kunins-Berkowitz. “For so many of us, we are the descendants who survived ethnic cleansing and genocide. Our ancestors and grandparents taught us that the worst thing to do in these moments is to be a bystander.” The activists are of all faiths, races, and ethnicities. They’re working to overcome the powerful Israel lobby. Embed from Getty Images Seven major US labor unions call on Biden to ‘shut off military aid to Israel’ The Guardian reports: Seven major US labor unions representing about 6 million workers sent a letter to Joe Biden on Tuesday calling on his administration to “immediately halt all military aid to Israel” ahead of a visit to the US from Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, this week. The unions that signed on to the letter include the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), American Postal Workers Union (APWU), International Union of Painters (IUPAT), National Education Association (NEA), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), United Auto Workers (UAW) and United Electrical Workers (UE). “Our unions are hearing the cries of humanity as this vicious war continues,” said Mark Dimondstein, the APWU president, in a press release. “Working people and our unions are horrified that our tax dollars are financing this ongoing tragedy. We need a ceasefire now, and the best way to secure that is to shut off US military aid to Israel.” The UAW stated, “This week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to come to Congress to ask our government to keep supporting this war [in Gaza]. We reject this insult to all those calling for peace and justice.” Amnesty issues fresh warning about US complicity in Israeli war crimes Middle East Monitor reports: Amnesty International has issued a fresh warning about US complicity in Israeli war crimes as Benjamin Netanyahu visits Washington. The human rights NGO also called on the US to halt arms exports to Israel with Netanyahu set to meet Joe Biden and possibly Kamala Harris during his trip. In the absence of a UN Security Council arms embargo, Amnesty is calling on all countries to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Israel immediately, until there is no longer a substantial risk that arms could be used to commit or facilitate serious violations of international human rights or humanitarian law. Countries which continue to transfer arms to Israel with knowledge that the recipient state or group is using these arms to commit “internationally wrongful acts” — which include crimes under international law such as war crimes and crimes against humanity — are not only violating their obligation to ensure respect for international humanitarian law, said Amnesty today, but are in fact also assisting these violations. Companies manufacturing and exporting arms also have a responsibility to respect human rights and international humanitarian law throughout their value chains. Any companies providing material assistance in the commission of a war crime can be found legally liable for such a crime. “The US government has been presented with ample evidence from experts around the world that US-origin arms have been used in war crimes and unlawful killings by the Israeli government.” Continued weapons transfers will make the US “complicit” in violations of international law committed with these arms, explained the Amnesty official. NOTE: Weapons transfers to armed Palestinian groups also fall within Amnesty’s call for embargo – although in reality, international law supports the efforts of resistance groups against an occupying power, the UN extending that right to the point of armed resistance.

The letter signed by 31 Israelis comes on the eve of Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress where many lawmakers are expected to not attend or stage protests to interrupt the Israeli leader’s speech. It is addressed to House Speaker Mike Johnson, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “We cannot overstate this: Prime Minister Netanyahu poses an existential threat to the State of Israel. He has no clear strategic objectives for the war in Gaza, no plan for the day after, nor a strategy for how to deal with the existential threat of Iran. For decades, he has been inciting Israelis against each other, damaging our national social fabric, dramatically harming our defense capabilities, eroding our economy and devastating our international standing,” the authors wrote. A copy of the letter was posted publicly by CNN. “Further, Netanyahu severely harms the US national security interests through his approach to this war, which adversely impacts American policy in the Middle East and beyond and further endangers Israel,” they added. Prominent signatories include former Israeli military chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Haloutz, ex-Mossad Director Tamir Pardo, former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Nobel Prize Laureate Aaron Ciechanover and Israel’s former UN envoy Gabriela Shalev. Netanyahu’s speech to Congress is a ‘celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians’ Middle East Eye reports: Palestinian-American Representative Rashida Tlaib called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress “a celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians”. Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American member of Congress, said that “Netanyahu is a war criminal committing genocide against the Palestinian people. It is utterly disgraceful that leaders from both parties have invited him to address Congress. He should be arrested and sent to the International Criminal Court.” She further remarked, “Make no mistake: this event is a celebration of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. It is a sad day for our democracy when my colleagues will smile for a photo op with a man who is actively committing genocide. “It is hypocritical to claim concern about the massive death toll of innocent civilians, then turn around and welcome the person responsible for these war crimes to our Capitol. Their silence is betrayal, and history will remember them accordingly. Our government must stop supporting and funding this genocide now.” Israel was founded in 1948 through a war of ethnic cleansing. Embed from Getty Images Schumer says he will attend Netanyahu’s Congress speech despite ‘disagreements’ Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at Congress: “Even though I disagree with many of Bibi Netanyahu’s policies, I will attend this speech because the United States’ relationship with Israel remains ironclad and transcends any prime minister.” Schumer endorsed Kamala Harris for president. Ha’aretz reports: The Democratic Majority for Israel wholeheartedly endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris for the party’s nomination for the upcoming presidential election. Israeli government quietly sends millions to unauthorized West Bank settler outposts Associated Press reports: The Israeli government has budgeted millions of dollars to protect small, illegal, unauthorized Jewish farms in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, underwriting tiny outposts meant to grow into full-fledged , illegal settlements, according to an anti-settlement monitoring group. Documents uncovered by Peace Now illustrate how Israel’s pro-settler government has quietly poured tens of millions of dollars into the unauthorized outposts, which are separate from its more than 100 officially recognized – but also illegal – settlements. Some of those outposts have been linked to settler violence against Palestinians and are sanctioned by the U.S. The group estimates approximately 500 people live on the small, unauthorized farms and 25,000 more live in larger outposts. Those outposts, while not officially authorized by the government, often receive tacit support before they are retroactively legalized. Rights groups say the expanding network of remote farms atop West Bank hilltops are the primary drivers of violence and displacement of Palestinians. On Friday, the top United Nations court said Israel’s presence in the Palestinian territories is unlawful and called for an immediate halt to settlement construction. NOTE: While there has been an uptick in settler violence since October 7th, every one of the more than 700,000 Israeli settlers living on Palestinian land are violating international law. Israel has illegally built around 280 settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, and incentivized Israeli Jews to live in them. Many Palestinians believe that Israeli settlements and settlers on Palestinian land are the main barrier to any lasting peace agreement. Settlers, moreover, have a history of violence against Palestinians, often with the assistance of Israeli military forces. NOTE: The International Solidarity Movement recently posted this video of Israeli settlers brutally attacking both Palestinians and international volunteers – one day after the ICJ ruled that the Israeli occupation and settlements are illegal. 350 foreign policy and national security personages endorse Kamala Harris, highlighting her involvement in the U.S.’ ‘defense of Israel when Iran attacked in April’ Ha’aretz reports: 350 leading foreign policy and national security experts endorsed U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris’s candidacy for U.S. President, calling her “the best qualified person to lead our nation as commander in chief.” “She has been by the president’s side in the Oval Office and in the Situation Room managing high-stakes international crises and advising on the toughest decisions,” they wrote, highlighting “the United States’ defense of Israel when Iran attacked in April 2024.” Among those to sign the letter include former U.S. Ambassadors to Israel Tom Nides and Daniel Kurtzer, former Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Frank Lowenstein, former national security advisers Susan Rice and Thomas E. Donilon, former secretaries of state John F. Kerry and Hillary Clinton; former secretaries of defense Chuck Hagel and Leon Panetta; and former top intelligence officials Michael Hayden and James Clapper. NOTE: While it’s not hard to find cheerleaders for Israel in its genocidal war on Gaza, voters themselves are not so enthusiastic: A Gallup poll in March showed that 55 percent of respondents disapproved of the Israeli military’s actions in the Gaza Strip. Among Democratic Party voters, the percentage was even higher, with 75 percent of respondents expressing a negative view of Israel’s actions, while 60 percent of independents also said they disapproved. Politicians have failed to grasp the significance of millions of Americans across the country protesting for ceasefire and an end to military aid to Israel – wrongly accusing them of antisemitism and ignoring their message.

In a letter to Thomas Bach, head of the International Olympic Committee, the Palestinians said Israel has been engaged in violations that include illegal colonial settlement, occupation and annexation, as well as genocidal incitement. The letter also stressed that there has been a breach of the Olympic truce. The UN General Assembly Resolution on the Paris 2024 Olympics mandates an Olympic truce from July 19 to September 15, 2024, to ensure a peaceful environment for the Games. “However, Israel has violated this truce within the first 24 hours by continuing its bombing on Gaza, resulting in the killing of at least 70 Palestinians. This contravention underscores the urgent need for OIC and FIFA to act in line with its statutes and promote respect for international human rights law,” the letter said. The letter was also sent to FIFA President Gianni Infantino by the Palestine Football Association. NOTE: At least 265 Palestinian sportsmen have been killed in Israeli attacks since last October, according to the Palestinian Football Association. “The victims include players, administrators and technical staff, including 11 in the West Bank” Jibril Rajoub, head of the association, told reporters. “Dozens of athletes remain under the rubble, and we are unable to count their number,” he said. “Many athletes are also held in Israeli jails.” RECOMMENDED READING: Palestinians launch first national amputee football team in Gaza Many West Bank deaths on Tuesday Five Palestinians were killed Tuesday by Israeli occupation army gunfire in Tulkarm camp, including three men, a young girl, and a 50-year-old woman.

A 13-year-old child from the town of Bal’a, east of Tulkarem, succumbed Tuesday to critical injuries he sustained by Israeli forces’ live bullets about two weeks ago. A 39-year-old Palestinian man was Tuesday morning killed by Israeli occupation forces in the town of Sa’ir, northeast of Hebron. A young man, age 22, was Tuesday killed by Israeli occupation army gunfire from the town of Shuyoukh, northeast of Hebron. Palestinians hail new reconciliation deal amid Israeli opposition Andalou Agency reports: A China-mediated agreement to heal the years-long rift between Palestinian factions and form a national unity government has been met with Palestinian praise and Israeli opposition. The Palestinian groups on Monday reached a reconciliation agreement following three days of intensive talks in the Chinese capital Beijing to end their political division since 2007. Representatives of 14 Palestinian groups, including the rival Fatah and Hamas movements, signed a new statement pledging to end the division and strengthen unity. The agreement aims at maintaining Palestinian control over the Gaza Strip following the end of Israel’s ongoing offensive on the enclave. Signatories of the agreement said they would form an interim national unity government to supervise the reconstruction of the war-torn Gaza Strip and hold new elections. “The Beijing declaration is an additional positive step towards achieving Palestinian national unity,” Husam Badran, a member of Hamas political bureau, said in a statement. He said the factions agreed to form a national unity government to supervise Gaza reconstruction and prepare the conditions for holding elections. The agreement also underlined the right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation and to self-determination based on international laws and UN Charter.

  • Dr Tommy Koh: “INCOME and Fairprice should never be sold”
    A wave of concern has emerged over the planned sale of NTUC Income to Allianz. Dr Tommy Koh, Tan Kin Lian, and Tan Suee Chieh have expressed their reservations about the deal, arguing that the core values of NTUC Income and Fairprice should remain intact.

    Staff writer23 July 2024

    A wave of concern has emerged over the planned sale of NTUC Income to German insurer Allianz, as notable Singaporean figures Dr Tommy Koh, Tan Kin Lian, and Tan Suee Chieh have expressed their reservations about the deal, arguing that the core values of NTUC Income and Fairprice should remain intact.

    In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Dr Tommy Koh, Ambassador-At-Large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the Institute of Policy Studies, voiced his opposition to the proposed sale.

    Dr Koh highlighted the origins of NTUC Income, stating, “INCOME started life as a cooperative of NTUC like Fairprice. The idea was to offer insurance to the people at affordable rates. A few years ago, it was made into a company and ceased to be a cooperative. Now we are told that it may be sold to a German insurance company.”

    Dr Koh further emphasized the social mission of NTUC Income, saying, “I don’t think it’s a good idea to sell INCOME. It was founded to serve a social purpose and a social need. They remain valid today. I wish to argue that INCOME and Fairprice should never be sold.”

    NTUC Income, established in 1970, was created to provide insurance protection to the masses at a time when life insurance was primarily accessible only to the higher income group.

    In January 2022, NTUC Income announced plans to convert its legal structure from a co-operative to a company governed by the Companies Act, aiming to strengthen its position amidst growing industry competition. The corporatisation was intended to provide NTUC Income with greater flexibility to raise funds for expansion and to offer more competitive products. The corporatisation was completed on 1 September 2022.

    On 17 July 2024, Allianz proposed a S$2.2 billion cash deal to acquire a 51 per cent stake in NTUC Income. The offer, priced at S$40.58 per share, represents a 37.3 per cent premium over NTUC Income’s net asset value per share as of 31 December 2023. If successful, the acquisition would elevate Allianz from the ninth to the fourth-largest composite insurer in Asia.

    “This proposed transaction brings two strong businesses together for the benefit of Singapore’s customers and solidifies Allianz’s leadership position in the region,” said Ms Renate Wagner, an Allianz board member responsible for the Asia-Pacific region.

    The deal is contingent on Allianz securing at least a 51 per cent stake, translating to approximately 54.6 million shares of NTUC Income.

    NTUC Enterprise Co-operative, holding a 72.8 per cent stake, has irrevocably committed to accepting the offer, ensuring NTUC Enterprise will maintain a substantial shareholding post-transaction, ranging from 21.8 per cent to 49 per cent.

    The acquisition also offers nearly 16,000 minority shareholders, who hold 27.2 per cent of NTUC Income’s shares, an opportunity to cash out from the illiquid and unlisted insurer.

    Allianz plans to conduct a strategic and operational review of NTUC Income’s businesses to enhance capital efficiency and explore potential business model transformations.

    The transaction is anticipated to close in the fourth quarter of 2024 or the first quarter of 2025, aiming to consolidate Allianz’s market position in property-casualty, health, and life insurance in Singapore. Allianz emphasized its commitment to continuing NTUC Income’s participation in national insurance programs and social commitments.

    NTUC Income has submitted Allianz’s offer to purchase 51% of its shares at S$40.58 per share to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for regulatory approval. If approved by MAS, the offer will be presented to all NTUC Income shareholders, who will be notified accordingly.

    Former NTUC Income CEO Tan Kin Lian had earlier expressed his disappointment over the planned sale in a Facebook post, stating, “This is sad. But it reflects what has been happening in Singapore for the past three decades. We are following the bad practices of America. America is now in decay. Singapore may follow.”

    Mr Tan Kin Lian, who led NTUC Income from 1977 to 2007, claimed that the insurance firm’s assets increased by 600 times under his leadership, from S$28 million to S$17 billion.

    Commenting on a response by a netizen that a local icon should not be sold to a foreign company, Mr Tan said, “Sadly, PAP leaders do not share the same value as ordinary people.”

    Mr Tan Suee Chieh, the former CEO of NTUC Income from 2007 to 2013, also shared his concerns on Facebook.

    He quoted Allianz Group CEO Oliver Bäte, who stated in a Business Times article, “We’re not in Asia to buy top line; we want to build a resoundingly profitable business.”

    He contrasted this with the values of NTUC Income under his and Mr Tan Kin Lian’s leadership, stating, “We maximised value to policyholders, but they must be sustainable and make business sense. We wanted to have as much reach to Singaporeans, not to maximise profits but to maximise social impact.”

    Mr Tan Suee Chieh urged Singaporeans to speak up, saying, “I hope our leaders are making sound decisions to benefit Singaporeans in the long term. I hope things may still change if there is a public outcry. So speak up now or forever hold your peace.”

Commenting on a response by a netizen that a local icon should not be sold to a foreign company, Mr Tan said, “Sadly, PAP leaders do not share the same value as ordinary people.” Mr Tan Suee Chieh, the former CEO of NTUC Income from 2007 to 2013, also shared his concerns on Facebook. He quoted Allianz Group CEO Oliver Bäte, who stated in a Business Times article, “We’re not in Asia to buy top line; we want to build a resoundingly profitable business.” He contrasted this with the values of NTUC Income under his and Mr Tan Kin Lian’s leadership, stating, “We maximised value to policyholders, but they must be sustainable and make business sense. We wanted to have as much reach to Singaporeans, not to maximise profits but to maximise social impact.” Mr Tan Suee Chieh urged Singaporeans to speak up, saying, “I hope our leaders are making sound decisions to benefit Singaporeans in the long term. I hope things may still change if there is a public outcry. So speak up now or forever hold your peace.” https://gutzy.asia/2024/07/23/dr-tommy-koh-income-and-fairprice-should-never-be-sold/ https://donshafi911iamthefaceoftruth.blogspot.com/2024/07/dr-tommy-koh-income-and-fairprice.html

  • ICJ: Israel obligated to end ‘unlawful’ presence in oPT as ‘rapidly as possible’
    Decensored News

    In a new advisory opinion, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) — also known as the World Court — ruled today that Israel's “continued presence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory is unlawful,” and that it is “under obligation” to:

    “end its unlawful presence... as rapidly as possible”

    “cease immediately all new settlement activities”

    “evacuate all settlers” from the oPT

    “make reparation for the damage caused...”

    They further stated that “all states” are obligated “not to render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created by” the Israeli occupation, nor to recognize it “as legal.”

    The UN—“especially the General Assembly, which requested the opinion, and the Security Council”—should “consider the precise modalities and further action required to bring to an end as rapidly as possible” Israel's “unlawful presence,” they wrote.

    More details can be found in the ICJ’s press release, as well as their 32-page summary of the advisory opinion—or you can just read the full text.


    “The advisory opinion, while non-binding, [is] the first time the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has expressed its view on the legality of Israel’s presence in territories it captured in the 1967 war,” writes CNN.

    “An advisory opinion is not legally binding but carries moral authority and can shape international law, according to the ICJ.”

    "This is an historic decision, codifying what has long been known in the international legal community, but giving further support to the struggle for Palestinian liberation and providing another stepping stone in the path toward ending apartheid, colonialism and genocide in Palestine," said international human rights lawyer Craig Mokhiber a viral thread on X.

    In a press statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates called the advisory opinion "a watershed moment for Palestine and the international law-based order."

    “The ICJ fulfilled its legal and moral duties with this historic ruling. Palestine will work with all law-abiding states and partners to uphold their clear obligations... No aid. No assistance. No complicity. No money, no arms, and no trade with the Israeli occupation."


    Others are, understandably, less optimistic:


    For his part, Israeli Prime Minister Netanayhu has already posted a defiant statement on X:

    “The Jewish people are not occupiers in their own land, including in our eternal capital Jerusalem nor in Judea and Samaria, our historical homeland. No absurd opinion in the Hague can deny this historical truth or the legal right of Israelis to live in their own communities in our ancestoral home.”

    Israel's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Israel Katz, called the ruling "fundamentally warped, one-sided, and wrong," and said that it "plays into the hands of the extremists."

  • He Called The Dog Habibi
    Caitlin Johnstone

    Listen to a reading by Tim Foley:


    He called the dog “habibi”
    β€Š—β€Šmy darlingβ€Š—β€Š
    as it mauled him to death
    while his family listened nearby.

    They had never heard him speak before.
    He had the mind of an infant.

    “Enough, my darling,” Muhammed said to the dog,
    because it was killing him,
    and because he was in pain,
    and because his family had spoken to him
    so lovingly all his life.

    Those were the words he knew.
    That’s how he was spoken to.
    That’s what you say to someone
    when you need them to stop.
    When you need them to listen.
    When their behavior is challenging,
    but you have deep love in your heart.

    Enough, my darling.
    Enough, my darling.
    As Gaza burns: enough, my darling.
    Enough.

    As attack dogs on two legs
    send attack dogs on four legs
    to bite and maul and kill:
    Enough, my darling.
    Enough.

    A murder of crows
    follows a murder of IDF soldiers,
    cawing, “Enough, my darling.
    Enough.”

    The bombed out hospitals.
    The children without limbs.
    The sniper drones playing recorded babies’ cries
    to try and lure out civilians.
    The attack dog maulings.
    The hunger.
    The fear.
    Enough, my darling.
    Enough.

    As we kill our planet
    and kill each other
    because we cannot act kindly,
    cannot let love guide us,
    cannot call off the dogs,
    cannot rescue their victims,
    cannot stop the attack,
    cannot awaken from our confusion,
    the stars call down to us from above:
    Enough, habibi.
    Enough, my darling.

    Enough.

    Enough.

    Enough.

  • Hostages of Israeli revenge in the Gaza Strip: Testimonies of 100 released Palestinian detainees reveal crimes of torture, cruel treatment
    Hostages of Israeli revenge in the Gaza Strip: Testimonies of 100 released Palestinian detainees reveal crimes of torture, cruel treatment
    Palestinian Territory - In a new report released on Tuesday, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor documents the testimonies of about 100 released Palestinian detainees. These testimonies confirm that the Israeli authorities and army committed horrific crimes of arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance, torture, and inhuman and cruel treatment against thousands of Palestinian civilians who were arrested as part of Israel’s genocide in the Gaza Strip, ongoing since 7 October 2023.

    In a 50-plus-page report titled “Hostages of Israeli Revenge in the Gaza Strip”, Euro-Med Monitor brings to light the widespread practice of arbitrary collective and individual arrests by Israeli forces against civilians in the Strip. Those arrested during Israel’s military incursions and its ground attacks on cities, camps, and residential neighbourhoods throughout the Strip include women, children, the elderly, and displaced individuals.

    The report is based on statements, testimonies, and in-person interviews that the Euro-Med Monitor team conducted with 100 detainees who had been released from Israeli army custody following ground operations in different parts of the Gaza Strip. Approximately half of the recently-released detainees are men under 50, while the remaining 17 are elderly men; 22 are women and four are children. Additional information was also gathered from reports released by the relevant authorities, local and international media, and human rights organisations.

    The information gathered concludes that the Israeli army routinely commits widespread crimes of arbitrary arrest, enforced disappearance, premeditated murder, torture, inhuman treatment, sexual violence, and denial of a fair trial. It also confirms that the Israeli army used physical and psychological torture against Palestinian civilian detainees, including beatings with the intent to kill, sexual violence, electrocution, blindfolding, and long-term hand and foot shackles. Israel also denied them access to food and medical care, including critical and life-saving care, spat and urinated on detainees, and committed other cruel and degrading acts, in addition to psychological abuse including rape and death threats, verbal harassment, and other forms of sexual violence.
    Abdul Qader Jamal Tafesh, 33, spoke with the Euro-Med Monitor team after being taken into custody by the Israeli army from the Kamal Adwan Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip, where he had been sheltering as a displaced person. “On 12 December 2023, the soldiers arrested and detained me in one of their camps in the northern Gaza Strip,” he stated. “They interrogated me inside the Al-Barawi family villa on Beit Lahia Street, which the army had converted into a military barracks.”

    According to Tafesh, as soon as he and the other prisoners arrived in this home’s yard, they were inspected with tools including specific “eye fingerprint” scanners. “After being stripped of our clothes and placed in handcuffs, [one in five people] were told to line up in front of cameras, get down on their knees, and bow their head. I was among these people.”

    Once he was on the ground, continued Tafesh, “[O]ne of the soldiers blindfolded me, put a sticker with a number on my shoulder, and made me run for about 500 metres before throwing me to the ground.” He explained that one soldier beat and tortured him, switching his handcuffs from front to back even after he revealed that he was hurt and had previously had an operation during which platinum was inserted into his left shoulder, which the soldier could see because Tafesh was naked. “He also hit me with his shoe, which made the pain worse, and [specifically] at the operation site, which made me pass out multiple times. I asked them to bring a doctor or take me to a doctor, but they refused,” Tafesh stated.

    Added Tafesh: “I was approached by a soldier who asked, ‘Do you want to die?’ He lifted his own weapon, removed its components, and fired close to my head.”

    M.Q., a Gaza City resident and engineer employed by a local company, requested that his full name be withheld due to safety concerns. He stated that he was detained and severely tortured by the Israeli army in his home: “They severely beat me for more than half an hour continuously, then forced me to sit on a bathroom chair next to the room. One of the soldiers asked me to recite the Shahada (a Muslim prayer said when one believes he is about to die) and after I did, he shot straight into the wall beside me.”

    Continued M.Q., “After that, I was handcuffed and tied in place while the soldiers threw stones at me. About fifteen minutes later, they took me out [of the bathroom] and threw me on the floor of the room. They also stepped on my head, and four of them peed on me while insulting me.”

    Along with being detained and subjected to torture in Israeli military bases and detention facilities—including covert and unofficial detention centres, particularly those near the borders of the Gaza Strip—Palestinian detainees were also subjected to detention and prolonged detention without any due legal procedures or being brought before judicial authorities, in violation of pertinent international laws.

    The international community must uphold its legal obligations under international law to stop Israel from committing crimes against all Gaza Strip residents, including detainees. It must also activate effective pressure mechanisms to compel Israel to immediately cease these crimes and to adhere to international law and protect Palestinian civilians in the Strip.

    Under Articles 146, 147, and 148 of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, the High Contracting Parties are obligated to stop Israel’s grave violations of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip, including crimes of torture and inhuman and degrading treatment of Palestinian detainees.

    All nations must fulfill their international obligations and halt all military, political, and financial support for Israel in its crimes against the civilian population in the Gaza Strip; in particular, all arms transfers, export permits, and military aid to Israel must be halted. Otherwise, these nations will be complicit in all crimes committed in the Strip, including genocide.

    Pressures should be put on Israel to stop its practice of forcibly disappearing Palestinian prisoners and detainees from the Gaza Strip; to immediately reveal all secret detention facilities; to reveal the identities of all Palestinians Israel detains from the Strip, their whereabouts, and their fate; and to take full responsibility for their safety and preserving their lives.

    In order to conclude the investigation that was opened in 2021, the International Criminal Court must cooperate with all parties and take serious action in submitting specialised reports about the crimes which Palestinian prisoners and detainees have been exposed to in Israeli prisons and detention centres since 7 October. The Court must also issue arrest warrants for all those responsible for these crimes, including those crimes committed against prisoners and detainees, in order to bring them to justice and hold them accountable.

    Euro-Med Monitor was taken aback to learn that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor, Karim Khan, disregarded the widespread and systematic crimes of torture committed by Israel against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, particularly those in the Gaza Strip, when he announced on Monday that he had submitted a request to the Pre-Trial Chamber to issue two arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Galat for allegedly participating in war crimes and crimes against humanity against Palestinians in the Strip. These accusations include war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Palestinian people, but not torture, even though there is ample evidence to support such allegations.

    Pressure should be exerted on the Israeli authorities to release all Palestinian detainees who were arbitrarily arrested, and if they are brought to trial, ensure all fair trial procedures. In addition, Israel must return the remains of Palestinian prisoners and detainees who died in Israeli prisons and detention centres.

Abdul Qader Jamal Tafesh, 33, spoke with the Euro-Med Monitor team after being taken into custody by the Israeli army from the Kamal Adwan Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip, where he had been sheltering as a displaced person. “On 12 December 2023, the soldiers arrested and detained me in one of their camps in the northern Gaza Strip,” he stated. “They interrogated me inside the Al-Barawi family villa on Beit Lahia Street, which the army had converted into a military barracks.” According to Tafesh, as soon as he and the other prisoners arrived in this home’s yard, they were inspected with tools including specific “eye fingerprint” scanners. “After being stripped of our clothes and placed in handcuffs, [one in five people] were told to line up in front of cameras, get down on their knees, and bow their head. I was among these people.” Once he was on the ground, continued Tafesh, “[O]ne of the soldiers blindfolded me, put a sticker with a number on my shoulder, and made me run for about 500 metres before throwing me to the ground.” He explained that one soldier beat and tortured him, switching his handcuffs from front to back even after he revealed that he was hurt and had previously had an operation during which platinum was inserted into his left shoulder, which the soldier could see because Tafesh was naked. “He also hit me with his shoe, which made the pain worse, and [specifically] at the operation site, which made me pass out multiple times. I asked them to bring a doctor or take me to a doctor, but they refused,” Tafesh stated. Added Tafesh: “I was approached by a soldier who asked, ‘Do you want to die?’ He lifted his own weapon, removed its components, and fired close to my head.” M.Q., a Gaza City resident and engineer employed by a local company, requested that his full name be withheld due to safety concerns. He stated that he was detained and severely tortured by the Israeli army in his home: “They severely beat me for more than half an hour continuously, then forced me to sit on a bathroom chair next to the room. One of the soldiers asked me to recite the Shahada (a Muslim prayer said when one believes he is about to die) and after I did, he shot straight into the wall beside me.” Continued M.Q., “After that, I was handcuffed and tied in place while the soldiers threw stones at me. About fifteen minutes later, they took me out [of the bathroom] and threw me on the floor of the room. They also stepped on my head, and four of them peed on me while insulting me.” Along with being detained and subjected to torture in Israeli military bases and detention facilities—including covert and unofficial detention centres, particularly those near the borders of the Gaza Strip—Palestinian detainees were also subjected to detention and prolonged detention without any due legal procedures or being brought before judicial authorities, in violation of pertinent international laws. The international community must uphold its legal obligations under international law to stop Israel from committing crimes against all Gaza Strip residents, including detainees. It must also activate effective pressure mechanisms to compel Israel to immediately cease these crimes and to adhere to international law and protect Palestinian civilians in the Strip. Under Articles 146, 147, and 148 of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, the High Contracting Parties are obligated to stop Israel’s grave violations of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip, including crimes of torture and inhuman and degrading treatment of Palestinian detainees. All nations must fulfill their international obligations and halt all military, political, and financial support for Israel in its crimes against the civilian population in the Gaza Strip; in particular, all arms transfers, export permits, and military aid to Israel must be halted. Otherwise, these nations will be complicit in all crimes committed in the Strip, including genocide. Pressures should be put on Israel to stop its practice of forcibly disappearing Palestinian prisoners and detainees from the Gaza Strip; to immediately reveal all secret detention facilities; to reveal the identities of all Palestinians Israel detains from the Strip, their whereabouts, and their fate; and to take full responsibility for their safety and preserving their lives. In order to conclude the investigation that was opened in 2021, the International Criminal Court must cooperate with all parties and take serious action in submitting specialised reports about the crimes which Palestinian prisoners and detainees have been exposed to in Israeli prisons and detention centres since 7 October. The Court must also issue arrest warrants for all those responsible for these crimes, including those crimes committed against prisoners and detainees, in order to bring them to justice and hold them accountable. Euro-Med Monitor was taken aback to learn that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor, Karim Khan, disregarded the widespread and systematic crimes of torture committed by Israel against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, particularly those in the Gaza Strip, when he announced on Monday that he had submitted a request to the Pre-Trial Chamber to issue two arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Galat for allegedly participating in war crimes and crimes against humanity against Palestinians in the Strip. These accusations include war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Palestinian people, but not torture, even though there is ample evidence to support such allegations. Pressure should be exerted on the Israeli authorities to release all Palestinian detainees who were arbitrarily arrested, and if they are brought to trial, ensure all fair trial procedures. In addition, Israel must return the remains of Palestinian prisoners and detainees who died in Israeli prisons and detention centres.

  • Killing, torture, and injections of unknown substances: Intl. community must act on Israeli violations of Gaza detainees
    Killing, torture, and injections of unknown substances: Intl. community must act on Israeli violations of Gaza detainees
    Palestinian Territory - New testimonies from Palestinian detainees released from Israeli prisons and detention centres received by Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor confirm that thousands of civilians have been subjected to inhumane and degrading treatment and severe torture as part of Israel’s genocide in the Gaza Strip, ongoing since 7 October 2023.

    The international community and international justice institutions must break the cycle of silence, declare firm positions, and take concrete action against the horrific torture that Palestinian civilians, both male and female, are being subjected to. This abuse has escalated to such an extent that, for the victims fortunate enough to survive, it now includes sexual violence, forced injections with unknown substances, and deliberate scarring and unique marking of their bodies. The degree of the violence should compel the international community to force Israel to stop all of its crimes against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, including the crimes of torture, inhumane treatment, and enforced disappearance, which have been committedagainst thousands of individuals from the Gaza Strip over the past eight months.

    The Israeli army released dozens of prisoners from the Zikim area, in the northern Gaza Strip, on Tuesday 11 June. Once they were all released, the Israeli army opened fire on them and made them run walk hundreds of metres to return to their residential areas. Due to exhaustion, they arrived in deplorable condition, exacerbating existing health issues that many had developed while being tortured and abused during their detention. Thirty-three of them came to be treated at the Kamal Adwan Hospital in Beit Lahia, in the north of the Gaza Strip.
    A 23-year-old recently freed detainee, Samir Abdullah Jamal Marjan, testified before the Euro-Med Monitorteam that he had been verbally harassed, beaten severely, and given electric shocks, as well as had rebuffed an attempt to have an unknown substance injected into his body:

    “On 11 March 2024, while attempting to flee to the south, I was detained by the Israeli army at the Nabulsicheckpoint, in the southwest of Gaza [City]. I was detained for two months in a detention centre across from Rafah, after which I was moved to AshkelonPrison, where I spent another two months. In thecorridors [of the prison], the other prisoners and I experienced very difficult days. We endured severe physical and psychological abuse every day, including beatings and taunts, as well as attacks by dogs, threats, and electric shocks. It was even worse in AshkelonPrison. I was kept in solitary confinement and went without food for 12 days.

    Throughout the interrogation, they used electric shocks to extract ‘confessions’ about Hamas and the tunnels. I was beaten when I replied that I did not know because I was a civilian, and did not know about other issues[either]. We had to endure terrible beatings and torture in addition to being questioned every 10 days. I saw people suffer from serious health declines; some even got sick there and were not given medical care, andsome inmates were also given unknown injections by the army. I was beaten and subjected to electric shocks since I refused to be injected with [the unknown substance]. Torture continued throughout my detention period.

    I was given electric shocks by one of the officers yesterday, for exceeding the allotted time in the toilet. The effects of that are still [visible] on my body. You would be exposed to electricity if you spent more thanfour minutes in the toilet, because even using the restroom has a set time. I was astonished to learn last night that I would be released, and I was unable to sleep. Then they drove us to Zikim, where they let us go and started shooting at us.”

    In a separate testimony to the Euro-Med Monitor field team, Amr Abdel Fattah Al-Aklouk stated that he was a Gaza Strip resident undergoing medical treatment in Jerusalem. Since the start of the attack on the Strip, the Israeli army has arrested him three times, the most recent arrest being on 5 June. Al-Aklouk verified the death of another detainee who was tortured to deaththat day by the Israeli army, stating: “I met a detainee named Muhammad Al-Kahlot, who lives in Al-Faluja, [in the] north of the Gaza Strip, about five days ago. He asked me to get in touch with his family and let them know he was okay if I got out. I did not know that I would be released when I was speaking with him in the room across from us. After our conversation, he died the following day due to torture, and the army put his body in a body bag and transported it to an unknown location. There was a group of Gaza Strip prisoners in custody who were designated as ‘security prisoners’. All day long, they endure oppression and random, violent beatings that cause their bodies to bleed. Muhammad was killed [through] the torture he endured at various points throughout the day."

    In a third testimony, S.A., a 65-year-old man who requested anonymity for safety reasons, described to the Euro-Med Monitor team how he was arrested from his home in the Jabalia refugee camp, subjected to torture and enforced disappearance, imprisoned in appalling conditions, and witnessed the torture of a deaf young man. He stated: “The Israeli army stormed Jabalia Camp last [month]. We chose to remain in our house in Al-Qasaib neighbourhood, behind the JabaliaCamp UNRWA clinic. The army stormed our house as their military vehicles barged into the area. They forced us all out, and took me and two of my nephews, while the rest were evacuated to the western areas. They took us somewhere we could not quite figure out on 21 May 2024. We were blindfolded from the start and had no idea where to go or what was going on around us.

    We were detained for about 20 days, but it seemed like 20 years at the time. There were abuse, beatings, and humiliation on a daily basis. As bedtime drew near, doors would start to rattle and ominous music would blast from speakers. Food is so scarce [there] that one can barely get a loaf of bread and some cheese. Using the restroom is a difficult and humiliating experience. They did not take into consideration that I was 65 years old, and I was not the oldest person there. There was someone else aged over 70 years old. We were in what appeared to be a ‘barracks’. We had no idea where we were. The occupation army was busy trying to deport a large number of the people who were arriving at this site, which appeared to be a detention centre, to unknown locations.

    In detention, there was a mute person. For many days, they would not stop beating and torturing him, demanding that he respond to [verbal] questions even though he was mute. From the moment of our arrest, we were handcuffed; we had to wear them even when we ate or used the restroom. On Monday night, 10 June 2024, they told us we would be released. However, before they [released us], one of the guards threatened me, saying, ‘Do not complain about anything to the press, or we will come to you again.’ In the Zikim area near Beit Lahia on the northwest border, one of the soldiers informed us, during our release on Tuesday afternoon, 11 June, that we had only four minutes to reach the residential areas. After that, he threatened to shoot anyone he saw. Although the terrain was difficult and there were no houses in sight, we began running in the sweltering heat.”

    Palestinian detainees who have been freed from Israeli custody attest to the fact that, despite knowing that the detainees are civilians, the Israeli forces are still abusing their power by torturing and treating theminhumanely. The international community’s continued silence—most notably; that of the pertinent United Nations bodies—will lead to the inevitable perpetuation of this torture.

    A June 12 report by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and in Israel, states that Palestinians from the Gaza Strip in general, and Palestinian detainees in particular, have been subjected to torture and inhumane treatment, including sexual violence; stripped in public while blindfolded; tied to chairs while kneeling or with their hands tied behind their backs; subjected to physical and psychological abuse while being interrogated; and made to perform humiliating acts while in their underwear, like dancing barefoot while being filmed.

    Karim Khan, the prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, has disregarded the grave offenses committed by Israeli security and military forces against Palestinian prisoners and detainees in the Occupied Palestinian Territory as a whole. These offenses include rape, torture, unlawful confinement, forced disappearance, inhumane treatment, and willful infliction of severe suffering by depriving prisoners and detainees of essential medical care and a fair trial. This is especially egregious in light of the numerous credible international reports and evidence released by human rights and media organisations which attest to the widespread and systematic use of torture and violence against Palestinians by Israel. Dozens of complaints have also been received regarding sexual violence—including forced nudity, in addition toverbal and physical sexual harassment—while international press reports document at least 7 cases of rape against Palestinian female and male prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention centres.

    It is recommended that the International Criminal Court Prosecutor pursue an investigation into all crimes perpetrated by Israel against Palestinian prisoners and detainees, broaden its purview to encompass all individuals accountable for these offenses, and expedite the issuance of arrest warrants against each of them.

    The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the issue of torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment must also fulfill the role that has been assigned to her in accordance with her mandate and follow the rules of integrity and remainindependent in her work. This includes conducting timely investigations and making country visits to learn the truth about the treatment of male and female detainees who are subject to grave violations and serious crimes, and submitting reports about them, rather than letting the Israeli authorities handle suchmatters. This will clear the path for the work of fact-finding committees and international courts in examining, probing, and holding trials regarding crimes committed by the Israeli army against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

    The international community should exert pressure on the Israeli authorities to return the bodies of Palestinian prisoners and detainees who were killed in Israeli jails and detention facilities, as well as to release all Palestinian detainees who were arbitrarily arrested and, if they are put on trial, to ensure all fair trial procedures.

    Israel must immediately cease its practice of forcibly disappearing Palestinian prisoners and detainees from the Gaza Strip; reveal all covert detention facilities;reveal the identities of all Palestinians it holds from the Gaza Strip, their whereabouts, and their fate; and assume full responsibility for their safety.

    Additionally, it is recommended that an independent international inquiry committee be established with a focus on the crimes committed during Israel’s current military assault on the Gaza Strip, in addition to facilitating the work of the committee already established in 2021 regarding the Occupied Palestinian Territory. This includes guaranteeing both committees’access to the Strip and initiating investigations into all crimes and violations against Palestinians there, including the circumstances surrounding the deaths of all Palestinian prisoners and detainees killed in Israeli prisons, as well as any sort of sexual violence against people of any gender.
