A number of media outlets have reportedly stated that Qatar opposes the Palestinian national reconciliation and that it is also dissatisfied with the recent rapprochement between Hamas and Egypt; stating that there is tension between Hamas and Egypt. In this regard, Hamas assures that these allegations are completely unfounded. This took place during a meeting held by head of Hamas,Yehya Al Sinwar with Palestinian youth in Gaza city on Sunday.

It is worth noting that Qatar had a remarkable role in supporting the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in general and the Gazans in particular during the longstanding harsh siege. Moreover, Qatar carried out dozens of humanitarian, reconstruction and infrastructure projects which reflected positively on life in Gaza and contributed significantly to prevent the collapse in Gaza Strip during the years of siege.

We do affirm that Qatar has always shown keenness to achieve the Palestinian national reconciliation and to end division and supports any effort to achieve it.

Beirut, October 19, 2017–The Committee to Protect Journalists today called on Israeli authorities to stop harassing Palestinian media and to release two staff members of a media company arrested during a series of raids in the West Bank yesterday.

Avichay Adraee, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson for Arabic Media, said in a statement published on an IDF Facebook account yesterday that at least eight Palestinian telecom and production companies were raided, but he did not specify the companies’ names. Adraee said 11 offices of the companies were raided because they provide services to the Hamas-affiliated stations Al-Aqsa and Al-Quds, which incite against Israel.

In early morning raids in several West Bank cities, Israeli forces, in cooperation with the Israeli home security service Shin Bet, confiscated documents and broadcast equipment, and closed the media companies down, according to news reports and the pro-Palestinian press freedom group Journalists Support Committee. Footage on the IDF Facebook page shows soldiers using plywood and metal to physically prevent access to the offices. Notices were left on doors saying that the companies were closed for six months, and warning employees to stop assisting terrorism and incitement. Read more »

Leila Khaled: The women of Palestine are stronger than the conspiracy of normalization

Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine

leila-soweto8-400-x-231

“The march of normalization organized by Zionist forces and joined by the so-called ‘Committee on Communication with the Israeli Society’ is in fundamental contradiction with the position and struggle of the Palestinian people and their national rights. This event is intended to distort and mystify the objectives of the Palestinian liberation struggle, and the struggle of Palestinian and Arab women in particular,” said Comrade Leila Khaled, member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. “This is another fraudulent and repetitive attempt to hide behind slogans of ‘peace,’ which will not fool the Palestinian and Arab people or the free people of the world,” she said.

The Popular Front “will stand with our people and nation and all the movements and committees for the boycott of occupation around the world to confront all forms of political, cultural and economic normalization with the Zionist state regardless of the banner, slogan or phrase chosen,” she said. “This event in Jericho only reveals the incompetence and inability of these Israeli and Palestinian pro-normalization forced alike to impose the path of concessions on the Palestinian people.” Read more »

UPWC: Palestinian women confront normalization and the so-called “peace” deception

PRESS STATEMENT
Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees

upwc-400-x-306

The Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees has issued a new statement in response to the so-called “Women Wage Peace” normalization rally scheduled in Jericho for October 8:

Normalization is treason – we will confront all plots under the name of the Palestinian woman and the “peace” deception

As the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees, we categorically reject what the so-called “Palestinian Committee on Communication with the Israeli Society” has done in promoting the organization of a women’s march in October near the Jordan river in Jericho, promoted as a march of Israeli and Palestinian women for “peace.” This is a blatant call for popular normalization of the Zionist occupation through the instrumentalization of women. This activity is a shameless fraud that seeks to forcibly impose normalization with the occupier upon Palestinian women, in clear violation of the sacrifices of our women martyrs, prisoners, wounded and strugglers to liberate our people from that occupier. Our position as a Palestinian women’s movement in occupied Palestine against normalization is very clear, as is our demand for the boycott of occupation in all forms, including economic, cultural, academic and all other forms of boycott.

On behalf of all of the struggling Palestinian women, we call upon our brothers and sisters, comrades, strugglers and all honest forces of the Palestinian people, men and women, to stop the “Women Wage Peace” march, and we call for the investigation and national prosecution of those responsible. Those who seek to force Palestinian women to normalize relations with the enemy seek to break our national consensus precisely at a moment of struggle for unity and national reconciliation.

As the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees, we affirm that we will stand strong and confront this rhetoric and these malicious conspiracies in the name of Palestinian women and the so-called “peace” deception, which in reality only reflects the will of a monopolistic sector that wants to impose its interests and decision by force against the Palestinian national consensus of women and men.

Why Palestinian reconciliation is likely to succeed

PA prime minister Rami Hamdallah and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyyah shaking hands in Gaza as Hamas formally hands over control of the Strip to the PA

PA prime minister Rami Hamdallah and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyyah shaking hands in Gaza as Hamas formally hands over control of the Strip to the PA

For a change, all concerned parties seem eager to see Palestinian reconciliation succeed. Each player has its own reasons, of course. Yet, it would not have been possible to come this far so quickly had it not been for the deepening humanitarian crisis inside the Gaza Strip and the growing predicament that Hamas, which controls Gaza, finds itself in as a result. There is no doubt that the siege imposed on Gaza by Israel and Egypt has achieved its objectives. Life has become so unbearable in the Strip that public opinion is overwhelmingly in favour of any deal that promises easing the pressure.

This has prompted Hamas to express readiness to make concessions that had until recently been inconceivable. The full extent of these concessions is, however, unclear, and the deal under discussion is shrouded in ambiguity. What is known thus far is that Hamas has agreed to disband its own administrative committee in charge of the Gaza Strip in a prelude to handing over control to the Ramallah-based Palestinian National Authority (PNA), whose prime minister, Rami al-Hamdallah, arrived in the Strip on Sunday for the handover by Hamas. As part of the new arrangement, Hamas is expected to relinquish control over the border crossings with Egypt and Israel. Read more »

PFLP prison branch welcomes steps toward reconciliation: weapons of the resistance must be protected

PRESS STATEMENT
PFLP Prison Branch

pflp-prison-400-x-206

The Prison Branch of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine issued the following statement:

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) welcomes the positive developments in reconciliation from inside the occupation prisons, and emphasized that the PA president must immediately reverse the punitive measures imposed on the Gaza Strip, warning of the negative repercussions of the continuing refusal to do so.

The organization said that all prisoners in the occupation jails are observing the recent developments in the reconciliation with great interests and hope that the implementation of the reconciliation agreements will protect the national and popular rights, emphasizing that they will stand with their people in support of national unity and their right to resist occupation by all available means.

The Prison Branch emphasized that the weapons of the resistance are always legitimate weapons and that any attempts to harm or confiscate such weapons violates the right of the Palestinian people to resistance. Therefore, any reconciliation must ensure the construction of a national strategy of struggle to manage the battle with the occupation and build a clear policy that rejects any compromise on the fundamental rights of our people to resist occupation and the legitimacy of their weapons.

The Front concluded its statement by emphasizing the need to overcome all obstacles to hold comprehensive elections to arrange the Palestinian house, especially the convening of the Palestinian National Council with the participation of all political colors of the Palestinian spectrum. The most important task is to rebuild the Palestine Liberation Organization on a new national and democratic foundation that can truly represent our people on a national basis in all of their places of residence, and to put in place a strategy to confront the occupation, its crimes and all of its projects that aim to end the Palestinian national existence as a whole.

Hamas Press Statement on 2nd anniversary of the the uprising in Jerusalem

PRESS STATEMENT
HAMAS

statments_img-400-x-70

To our steadfast Palestinian people

To our Arab and Islamic nations.

Two years ago, our heroic people faced a new challenge with the Israeli Occupation and its blatant violations against the holy places in Jerusalem. Our people confronted the Israeli attempts to Judaize and divide Jerusalem. Jerusalemites became the icons of sacrifice with their bare hands and the defenders of Al Aqsa Mosque and the holy places from the Israeli plots.

The generation who suffered the consequences of Oslo Accords and who was forced to succumb to the instruction of Daytonwas the same generation who led the battle of resistance against the Israeli Occupation:

On this glorious anniversary, we, in Hamas , emphasize the following:

First : Jerusalem is the main target of the Israeli Occupation and it requires us to make all possible efforts and stands to defend it from the Israeli schemes.

Second: We praise the role of our people in Jerusalem and mark this day to remember the victory which they achieved. We call upon our people and Arab and Muslim nations to continue in supporting Al Aqsa and to prevent time and place divisions.

Third :We affirm that the sole choice for restoring land and rights is resistance.

Fourth: We assure that the Palestinian reconciliation is a very important step in supporting the steadfastness of our people and protecting the national project. We assert that our people in Jerusalem would not have achieved victory without the unity of our people.

Fifth: We call on the Palestinian people to continue in resisting the Israeli Occupation and warn of all attempts to foil their resistance.

The blessed Jerusalem uprising established new rules in facing the Israeli Occupation and paved the way for innovative methods of resistance to be employed in restoring land and regaining the stolen rights.

Israeli security forces arrest Palestinian journalist in West Bank

NEWS
Committee to Protect Journalists – MENA

awad-400-x-267

Beirut, September 26, 2017–Israeli security forces should immediately release Palestinian journalist Abdul Rahman Awad, a correspondent in Ramallah for the Hamas-affiliated Palestinian news agency Safa, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.

Israeli forces yesterday morning arrested Awad at his home in the village of Budrus, 19 miles (31 kilometers) northwest of Ramallah, according his employer and news reports.

Awad’s wife, Sana Abdel Hafez, told CPJ that Israeli security forces broke the main door of their house and entered at 2 a.m. yesterday. According to Abdel Hafez, they told Awad to identify himself, and asked the journalist questions about his work. Awad wrote feature stories, and covered social and humanitarian issues relating to Palestinians living in the West Bank.

The security forces then took Awad to change clothes, arrested him, and transferred the journalist to an unknown location, according to his wife.

Abdel Hafez said her husband was not charged during the arrest, and she has not heard from him since security forces took him away.

“Israeli security forces should stop arresting Palestinian journalists without charge,” said CPJ Middle East and North Africa Program coordinator Sherif Mansour. “We call on Israeli authorities to immediately release Abdul Rahman Awad.”

The Israel Defense Forces did not immediately respond to CPJ’s request for comment.

Awad’s arrest follows an August 31 raid Israeli troops carried out on the Hebron office of the Fatah-affiliated al-Hurriya Media Network. In the same incident, the troops shuttered the Manbar al-Hurriya radio station for six months on the grounds that the broadcaster incited terrorist attacks.

The UN Circus

Mazin Qumsiyeh

un-400-x-227

The big circus at the UN reminded us of characters from a Chinese Henghua puppet theater. The bombastic mingled with the fools, the idiots with the more idiotic, the funny characters and the puppets whose strings and overlaying hand were so poorly done. The strings sometimes got entangled. Everybody pretended in their own way to believe the show especially the characters themselves.

Netanyahu pretended that normalization with the Arab states will keep him his job as it will divert attention from his scandals. The pathetic Yemeni appointed Saudi puppet pretended that more bombing by western powers not of Yemeni children will regain him his lost presidency.

Newer actors slipped in a bit more authentic voices whether bombastic (Trump) or a bit more rational (Macron, Rouhani). But the old guard had the most easily recognized non-authentic voices.

The award for the best performance must go to Mahmoud Abbas who put on a good act pretending to his people and to others that begging and pleading works. Perhaps this is because he’s had the longest time on stage – since the 1974 ten-point program that pretended that appeasing the west gets you points.

His aides and advisors sheepishly explain to those who ask that he is helpless and that he must play the game. Thus, Abbas reasserted he will continue in peaceful ways to beg for a state along the 1967 borders even as any idiot knows this is never in the cards.

He asserted he will not demand basic human rights for all Palestinians but only those in 1967 areas.

The two-state “solution” (illusion), as any person who reads history, is the most ridiculous “make believe” part of this poor Henghua play.

There has never been in history a two state division of a country between colonizers and colonized.

Such struggles fall into three models/scenarios in terms of outcome: 1) an Algerian model, 2) an Australian model, 3) a Mexican or Brazilian model.

Since the first two are extremely unlikely (perhaps impossible), the third is the most common outcome – one state for all children of colonized and of colonizers.

There is no fourth scenario for outcome of such struggles.

But ultimately the question is what each of us wants and how WE work to achieve our objectives. Actions speak louder than words and we urge all to work together for a more peaceful, just, and environmentally sustainable world.

PFLP: Those who meet with the occupier stand with the enemies of the people

PRESS RELEASE
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine

samir-kioff-350x240-400-x-274

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine strongly condemned Palestinian Authority officials and merchants in Jenin for participating in a farewell ceremony for the Zionist liaison officer in the criminal occupation army, Samir Kioff.

The Front considers that the participation of a Palestinian delegation in the farewell of a Zionist war criminal who stained his hands with the blood of our people is a disgrace on those officials and a poisoned stab in the back of our people, disregarding the blood of the martyrs and the sacrifices of our people who are still struggling under the weight of the crimes of the occupation, in order to be exploited by the occupation to beautify this image.

The Front emphasized that this gathering in the so-called Salem settlement camp which has been a consistent source of suffering for our people, is yet another proof that the Palestinian Authority does not learn any lessons from its continuing great sins against the resistance of our Palestinian people, as shown in the rush of its leaders toward normalization and meetings with the enemy, and in light of the continuation of security coordination with the enemy by the security apparatus.

The Front pointed out that those who continue in the field of normalization are putting themselves in the path of confrontation of our people and should expect punishment for their actions, as national crimes have no statute of limitations.

The Front further emphasized that the Palestinian national responsibility requires all national, community, cultural and commercial actors to condemn these normalization meetings and to expose, besiege and boycott them.

One million children in Gaza are living in dire conditions. Many celebrated Eid in the dark without electricity. A UN report in 2012 said Gaza would be unlivable by 2020. Save the Children considers Gaza to be unlivable now.

Save the Children urges Israel to lift the Gaza blockade and for Palestinian and Israeli authorities to provide basic services to the residents of Gaza. the international community has failed to react to the suffering of Palestinian children in Gaza. A decade of isolation had reduced power available to households to just eight hours per day. Now families are lucky if they get two hours of electricity per day. Far too many get nothing at all.

The power shortages are also affecting Gaza’s already crippled infrastructure. The shortening or suspension of sewage treatment cycles has led to increased levels of pollution and contamination of groundwater sources and the Mediterranean Sea, leaving more than 60% of the sea around Gaza contaminated with untreated sewage and over 90% of water sources too contaminated for human consumption.

Beirut, September 5, 2017–Israel should allow the al-Hurriya media network and its affiliates to resume work without fear of harassment, and the Palestinian Authority should release Ayman al-Qawasme, the chairman of the same media network, from its custody, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.

raed-salhi-postter-277-x-400

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades join the masses of our people in mourning our comrade, the wounded prisoner, Raed As’ad al-Salhi, 21, who died from his injuries today in a Zionist hospital after he was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation in August, when he was shot at a point-blank range.

The Front offers its sincere condolences to the family, comrades and friends of the martyred comrade in Dheisheh refugee camp, torch of the Intifada and steadfast base of resistance. He has joined the long convoy of the martyrs of the Palestinian people at the hands of the occupation. He was always present to confront the occupation in the city of Bethlehem, where the occupation forces and their barracks have been met with numerous heroic clashes, confrontations and struggles by the Palestinian people.

Palestine, Dheisheh camp and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine have lost a courageous struggler committed to liberation of the Palestinian people from the Zionist occupation. This young struggler was committed in his very veins to loyalty to the Palestinian cause and to his people.

The Popular Front is committed to remain on the same path for which this martyr’s life was taken, the path of return, resistance and liberation. It is confident that its comrades in Dheisheh camp, who have always advanced the struggle and paid the deep prices of sacrifice, will continue to lift high the banner of resistance to the Zionist occupation, despite the continuous targeting of the comrades and the camp.

Glory to the martyrs; victory is inevitable!
