Elor Azarya enters prison despite last-ditch attempt at postponing incarceration -  Former Israeli soldier Elor Azarya began his 18-month prison sentence on Wednesday for the point-blank shooting and killing of a Palestinian in 2016 -- after a last-minute attempt to postpone his incarceration.

Azarya was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to a year and a half in prison for shooting and killing 21-year-old Palestinian Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif as the disarmed Palestinian lay severely wounded on the ground after allegedly committing a stabbing attack in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron in March 2016.

Azarya shot al-Sharif in the head, with a number of witnesses quoting him as saying "this dog is still alive," and "this terrorist deserves to die" before he pulled the trigger.

Israeli media reported that dozens of Israelis gathered both outside of Azarya’s home in Ramla and in front of the military prison known as Prison Four in central Israel to show support for Azarya, who has been seen by many Israelis as an unjustly punished hero.

Israeli news outlet Ynet reported that the demonstrators’ slogans included “Elor is a hero,” “Do not fear, Elor, Israel is with you,” and “If you don’t return the boy, we will overturn the state.”

Meanwhile, The Times of Israel said that Azarya held a party on Tuesday night before heading to prison, during which Israeli pop song “Mother’s Hero” was played -- a likely reference to the portrayal of Azarya as Israel’s son who was only doing his duty. >>>

 

Zehn Kilometer Niemandsland - Tausende palästinensische Jerusalemer leben hinter Israels Trennanlagen. Polizei gibt es dort nicht, illegale Bauten sprießen aus dem Boden.-  Saddam Hussein schaut von der Wand aus zu, wie Ahmad Abu Latife Haare schneidet und Bärte stutzt. „Er hat das palästinensische Volk unterstützt“, erklärt Abu Latife das fast die ganze Wand ausfüllende Foto von dem früheren irakischen Despoten. Flink hantiert der 36-jährige schlaksige Friseur mit Kamm und Schere am Kopf seines Kunden, während er über „das Chaos“ schimpft in Kufr Akab, seinem Dorf, das gleich hinter den Grenzanlagen von Kalandia liegt. Jeden Tag Verkehrsstaus, weder Recht noch Ordnung herrsche hier. „Niemand fühlt sich für uns zuständig.“

Kufr Akab ist eine von acht Nachbarschaften, die formal zum Stadtgebiet von Jerusalem gehören, gleichzeitig aber hinter einer hohen Betonwand und Kon­troll­anlagen liegen, die Israel vor zwölf Jahren errichten ließ, um sich vor Terroristen zu schützen.  >>>>

"Was Besatzung heißt -  Jochen Stahnke – 6. 8. 017 – Die scheidende Vorsitzende von Breaking the Silence ist die Tochter der Leiterin der Holocaust-Gedenkstätte Yad Vashem. - Der Schriftsteller Michael Chabon steht im palästinensischen Viertel Tel Rumeida vor einer Rolle Stacheldraht, in der sich Müll verfangen hat. Der Amerikaner ist mit dem Gründer der Veteranenorganisation „Breaking the Silence” in die geteilte Stadt Hebron gekommen. Eines von Chabons bekanntesten Werken handelt von der Frage, was gewesen wäre, hätte Israel den Krieg gegen die Araber nach der Staatsgründung 1948 verloren und stattdessen eine gottverlassene Inselgruppe in Alaska besiedeln müssen. Es ist geschrieben mit dem Selbstvertrauen eines Pulitzerpreisträgers. Doch Israel schlug den arabischen Überfall zurück, und Chabon steht nun in der sengenden Sonne von Tel Rumeida. Dort siedeln zehn jüdische Familien in Häusern, die seit Generationen palästinensischen Familien gehören. Die Siedler machen weit ältere Besitzrechte geltend.

Chabon trägt zum lockeren blauen Leinenhemd einen Strohhut, die graue Hose hört über den nackten Knöcheln auf, dazu schwarze Turnschuhe. „Du magst vielleicht denken, dass du weißt, was hier in den besetzten Gebieten los ist”, sagt er. „Aber du tust es nicht -nicht, bis du es nicht mit eigenen Augen gesehen hast.” Er geht an einem vom israelischen Militär verschweißten Metalltor einer Garage vorbei. Es ist der Laden eines Palästinensers, der ihn nicht mehr betreten darf. Aus Sicherheitsgründen, um die Siedler zu schützen. „Vergast die Araber”, ist auf das Tor gesprüht. Chabon macht ein Foto. „Wir wollen den Leuten, die nicht herkommen können, zeigen, wie es hier wirklich ist.”

Chabon und Yehuda Shaul sind in Hebron, um den Palästinensern dort einen Essayband vorzustellen. Darin haben Chabon selbst und andere Schriftsteller aufgeschrieben, was sie hier, im Westjordanland, gesehen haben. Shaul, der Gründer von Breaking the Silence, diente selbst als Kampfsoldat in Hebron. Jetzt fordert er, die Besatzung umgehend zu beenden. Chabon und seine Frau, die amerikanisch-israelische Schriftstellerin Ayelet Waldman, haben auch Shauls Sache ein Buch gewidmet.

An der Hauptstraße im Zentrum von Hebron hält sich kein Palästinenser auf, dafür stehen immer wieder Grüppchen von jugendlichen israelischen Soldaten herum. Sie hatten Pech; kaum ein Schulabgänger will seinen Wehrdienst in Hebron leisten. Die Soldaten kennen Yehuda Shaul. Einer streckt die Hand aus und schlägt locker in Shauls ein. Andere drehen sich weg.

Plötzlich stehen Siedlerjungs auf der Straße, die Palästinenser nicht betreten dürfen. Sie wickeln sich T-Shirts ums Gesicht, rufen Shaul zu, dass er der Sohn einer dreckigen Hure sei, werfen Wasserbomben. „Du bist Abfall, rufen sie. Shaul >>>

 

Breaking the Silence › Israeli soldiers talk about the occupied territories >>>

The deep, and endless, occupation - Zeina Azzam  - “I was part of a machine that spread a lot of devastation and fear,” concludes a soldier as he reflects on his role in Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. His words are part of actual testimony gathered by an Israeli group, Breaking the Silence, and published in a book titled Our Harsh Logic: Israeli Soldiers’ Testimonies from the Occupied Territories, 2000-2010. A play that was recently part of the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC, “It’s What We Do,” animated the soldiers’ sentiments and recollections of serving in the occupied Palestinian territories, using verbatim accounts. Written and directed by Pamela Nice, the play showed the soldiers, as she says, in “roles as instruments of injustice against Palestinians.” Their words shed light on how the Israeli military carries out the policies of Israel’s government.

Generations of these soldiers have been acting as enforcers of a military occupation that turned 50 years old this year, one that should have been—according to the Hague Regulations—a “temporary situation.” Instead, after the June 1967 Arab-Israeli War, when Israel launched a preemptive strike and defeated the armies of Jordan, Egypt, and Syria and took over and occupied thousands of square kilometers of Palestinian territory (in addition to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and Syria’s Golan Heights), the Israeli government initiated a far-reaching institution of military occupation that has become a way of life not only for the long-suffering occupied Palestinian population , but also for the Israeli armed forces themselves and the Israeli public at large. >>>

"Ich war naiv, entschlossen und hatte keine Ahnung" - wie ich mit einer Truck Farm durch Palästina fuhr - Tamara El-Masri - Vor fünf Jahren sah ich eine Dokumentation namens "Truck Farm" von Ian Cheyney. Der Film zeigte wie Ian auf der Ladefläche seines Pickups einen Gemüsegarten anlegte und damit in Brooklyn herumfuhr.

Mir gefiel der Gedanke, selbst in einem solchem Pickup Truck durch die Gegend zu cruisen, mich um meinen mobilen Garten zu kümmern und einen Cowboyhut dabei zu tragen. Ich beschloss, auch Truck Farmer zu werden, allerdings in meiner Heimatstadt Ramallah, Palästina.

Zunächst galt es aber eine Finanzierung für meine Fantasie zu finden. Glücklicherweise gab es an meinem Liberal Arts College Stipendien für solche Projekte, zumindest solang sie dazu dienten den Weltfrieden zu fördern. Also stellte sich die Frage: Warum eine Truck Farm?

Zu ihrer Beantwortung vertiefte ich mich in das Konzept des ‚Ideologischen Gartens'. Bei der mündlichen Begründung meines Antrags für ein Stipendium zitierte ich aus meinen Nachforschungen: In den 1930er Jahren blühten in den jüdischen Ghettos Gärten als Widerstand gegen den Faschismus. Später legten die Vereinigten Staaten auch sogenannte ‚victory gardens' an, um die Versorgung ihrer Truppen in Europa zu sichern.

In den 1980er Jahren unterhielt Nelson Mandela einen Garten auf Robben Island, wo er inhaftiert war, aufgrund seines Widerstands gegen die Apartheid.

Ungefähr zur selben Zeit, während der ersten Intifada, gab es Gärten als politischen Protest, aber auch zur konkreten Versorgung, da diese von Israel abhing und es zu großen Teilen immer noch tut.

Jetzt war also die Zeit für eine Truck Farm in Palästina >>>

Palestinian journalists the latest victim of Hamas-Fatah rivalry - Michael Schaeffer Omer-Man - Palestinian Authority security services arrested five Palestinian journalists in the West Bank Tuesday night in what appears to be a worrying manifestation of escalating tensions between Fatah and Hamas.
Related stories

Fatah-aligned PA security forces accused the five journalists of “leaking sensitive information to hostile parties,” presumably Hamas, according to a report on the official Palestinian Authority news agency WAFA Wednesday. Several of the arrested journalists work for Hamas-affiliated news outlets.

WAFA also published a parallel report on Wednesday about Hamas security forces arresting and detaining two journalists, at least one of whom works for a Fatah-aligned media outlet. One of the two, Fouad Jaradeh, has been imprisoned for two months by Hamas, which accuses him of collaborating with the Palestinian Authority government in Ramallah, according to a Gaza-based rights group. >>>

 

 

Five Palestinian journalists seized by PA security forces - The Palestinian Authority’s intelligence services have launched a campaign of arrests against a number of Palestinian journalists in the West Bank on Tuesday, 8 August. Five journalists were seized by PA intelligence agents, including Qutaiba Qasem and Mamdouh Hamamreh in the Bethlehem governorate, Amer Abu Arafa and Ahmed Halaiqa in al-Khalil and Tareq Abu Zeid in Nablus.

Hamamreh, a correspondent for al-Quds TV, was arrested when PA forces broke into the studio in Husan, west of Bethlehem. His colleague, Qasem, was called for interrogation at the headquarters of the security services after they encircled his home, demanding that he turn himself over.

Abu Arafa is the correspondent of the Shehab News Agency; when he was seized, his cellular phones and computers were also taken. Halaiqa, also seized in al-Khalil, reports for al-Quds TV.

Abu Zeid was arrested from his home in Nablus; he is a correspondent for Al-Aqsa TV. Meanwhile, the journalist Islam Salem was summoned for interrogation.

The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate strongly condemned the arrests as a systematic attack on freedom of the press and freedom of expression. The union also denounced the Palestinian Authority’s justification for the detentions, that the journalists were “leaking sensitive information to hostile parties,” including, apparently, other Palestinian political parties. The syndicate considered this justification “worse than the detention.”  >>>

Israel's empty threat to 'shut down' Al Jazeera - Communications Minister Ayoub Kara held a press conference at which he promised to ‘close’ Al Jazeera. He doesn’t exactly have that type of authority, let alone the ability. - Moshe Ronen - 6. 8. 2017 - Israel’s new communications minister, Ayoub Kara, declared this week that he would act to shut down Al Jazeera’s operations in Israel. Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Kara explained that he is the only minister in the Israeli government whose mother tongue is Arabic, and therefore he is the only one who understands the channel’s Arabic-language broadcasts. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wasted no time praising Kara for working to shutter the station.

And so it was that Israel followed in the footsteps of four Arab states — Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates — who themselves shuttered Al Jazeera’s offices in their respective countries earlier this summer, after severing all ties with Qatar, where the station is headquartered. >>>

Mahmoud Darwish: Palestine’s Poet.
(13 March 1941–9 August 2008)


Nachruf auf Mahmoud Darwish - Ich bin Joseph, o Vater - Er war der Dichter, der in seiner Hochzeit arabische Fußballstadien füllte. Seine ganze Lyrik zielte darauf ab, die existentielle Not der Palästinenser in Worte zu fassen und nach einer Lösung zu suchen. Im Alter von 67 Jahren ist der palästinensische Schriftsteller Mahmoud Darwisch gestorben. - 10.08.2008, von Stefan Weidner >>>




Mahmoud Darwish: Palestine’s Poet. - (13 March 1941–9 August 2008) - In 1971 PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat said of the great Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish: “I can smell the fragrance of the homeland on you.” In this observation the leader captured a central part of Darwish’s philosophy — whilst Palestine has left beautiful traces in the air it is a concept that can’t quite be touched.

Perhaps the most common reflection on Darwish’s work is that Palestine is a metaphor for the loss of Eden, or a constructed paradise. As he himself observed when you are deprived of home, it becomes a “need” and a “lust”, or a dream which is more beautiful than the reality. The state of exile becomes all encompassing.

“This jasmine in the July night is a song
for two strangers who meet on a street leading nowhere.
“Who am I after your two almond eyes?” the male stranger asks.
“Who am I after your exile in me?” the female stranger asks.” (Night That Overflows My Body)

No wonder the reverberations of exile seep out into Darwish’s writing. At six years old he fled his home in Upper Galilee, which was being bombed by the Israelis, and sought refuge in the camps of southern Lebanon. When he and his family returned one year later, settlements had been built on the remnants of their home.

His family were classed as present absentees and lived as refugees in their own country. From a young age Darwish was confronted with the fact that Palestinians were second-class citizens but still had to celebrate the creation of Israel. Whilst at school, on Israel’s Independence Day, Darwish wrote a letter to a Jewish boy to explain that he could not be happy until he was allowed to have what the Jewish boy had.

“You can play in the sun as you please, and have your toys, but I can’t. You have a house, and I have none. You have celebrations, but I have none. Why can’t we play together?”

At a poetry festival in Nazareth not long afterwards Darwish read Identity Card, part of which is below. It was inspired by a visit to the Israeli police to renew his travel pass and went on to be published in his first collection of poetry. >>>

Israeli settlers launch march to Abu Rajab family home in Hebron's Old City - Aug. 9, 2017 - Hundreds of Israeli settlers originating from France launched a march on Wednesday afternoon toward the Abu Rajab home in Hebron’s Old City, which was forcibly taken over by settlers some two weeks ago, to reportedly show solidarity with the settlers.

The march was set off from an illegal settlement post on al-Shuhada Street and the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in the Old City, and stormed to the Abu Rajab family home, as the settlers waved Israeli flags.

Locals told Ma’an that the march was a way for the Israeli settlers to “confirm their control” over the building, despite even the Israeli Civil Administration deciding that the settlers' alleged purchase of the property was in fact invalid.

Residents of the Abu Rajab house have been embroiled in a legal battle with Israeli settlers for years, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared his intention to encourage the establishment of a new illegal Israeli settlement there to be named Beit Hamachpela. >>>
