India and policy of recycling militants in Kashmir

1397/1/16 | 16:05
  These days the news of youngsters joining militancy in Kashmir is quite common. In most of the cases Indian security forces track them somewhere in rural areas and after a few hours of encounter, they are being targeted. Attacking the civilians of the region during encounter is also a routine. Just a couple of days after the brutal killing of 17 Palestinian on land day – 30th March - at Gaza border, 17 Kashmiri people lost their lives during different encounters in south of the valley; 13 of them militants and 4 civilians. The encounters ...

Crocodile tears for Gaza

1397/1/16 | 16:05
  Most of the international community is miffed with Israel. Not in general, mind you. Just regarding the weekend violence directed against unarmed protestors. Indeed, the EU and UN are all but desk-thumping their outrage over Tel Aviv’s flat-out refusal to investigate its military for disproportionate use of force that left up to 17 Palestinians dead and some 1,100 injured. The US, for its part is playing along with Mr Netanyahu and went as far as blocking a Security Council resolution towards this end. All of which is good news. At ...

Israeli carnage raises fears of Gaza conflagration

1397/1/13 | 16:05
  Palestinians have protested for the third day as part of the annual “March of Return” to commemorate Land Day, braving Israeli tanks and snipers deployed along the Gaza fence where 17 protesters were killed a few days ago. At least 50 people were injured on Sunday as Israeli forces shot at Palestinian protesters in the city of Jabalia and elsewhere in the Gaza Strip. Several dozen protesters suffered suffocation due to inhaling teargas. Clashes have been ongoing since Friday when tens of thousands of Palestinians began a six-week ...

Censoring innocent killings in Palestine: Is Pope Francis better than Muslim leaders?

1397/1/12 | 16:05
  Pope Francis, in his Easter address on Sunday, called for peace in the Holy Land two days after 15 Palestinians were killed on the Israeli-Gaza border, saying the conflict there "does not spare the defenceless". The pope made his appeal in his "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) message from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica to tens of thousands of people in the flower-bedecked square below where he earlier celebrated a Mass. He also appealed for an end to the "carnage" in Syria, calling for humanitarian aid to be allowed ...

Bloodshed in Palestine: How Saudi betrayal emboldened Jewish state?

1397/1/12 | 16:05
Gaza is bleeding again, with scores of dead bodies and uncountable bruised. The dead bodies might be still looking towards Muslim Ummah and may be weeping on Saudia's hug to Netanyahu.     The Israeli response to Palestinian violence is often described as ‘disproportionate’; this is an understatement. When Hamas or other armed groups fire rockets into Israel, the people of Gaza are pounded mercilessly by Israeli bombs. When protesters take to the streets of the West Bank, Tel Aviv’s enforcers are let loose, often using lethal ...

World's criminal silence: Israel brutally martyrs 15 innocent civilians

1397/1/11 | 16:05
  Clashes erupted as tens of thousands of Gazans marched near the Israeli border in a major protest on Friday, leaving 15 Palestinians dead and hundreds more wounded in the conflict’s worst single day of violence since the 2014 Gaza war. Late in the day, Israel’s military targeted three Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip with tank fire and an air strike after what it said was an attempted shooting attack against soldiers along the border that caused no injuries. Protesters, including women and children, had earlier gathered at multiple ...

Recognise Gaza as independent state says former Israeli major general

1397/1/8 | 16:05
A former head of Israel’s National Security Council has urged the government to recognise and treat the Gaza Strip as a de-facto independent state. Writing in Yediot Ahronoth, former Major-General Giora Eiland argued that Israel needs to take the “initiative, on the basis that “the situation [in Gaza] is unstable and could deteriorate very soon”. According to Eiland, Gaza “has been a de-facto independent state” since 2007, with “a defined area; an efficient central government; an independent foreign policy; and an army of its ...

‘Only a matter of time before Israel military confrontation with Gaza’

1397/1/7 | 16:05
An Israeli confrontation with Palestinian factions in the besieged Gaza Strip is inevitable and it is only a matter of time before it happens, the former head of the Israeli army’s Southern Command, Brigadier General Itay Virov, said yesterday. During a meeting with the new graduates of Yonatan, a pre-army preparatory programme, he said: “Each passing day gets us farther away from the previous campaign, but closer to the next one. It’s only a matter of time.” He added: “We paid a heavy price in ‘Operation Protective Edge’. You ...

Arabs' failure to take action encouraged US move on al-Quds: Palestinian FM

1396/12/18 | 16:05
  Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki has criticized the Arab states’ indifference towards the Palestinian conflict over the past decades, arguing that their failure to carry out concrete actions encouraged the United States to continue its "unfortunate approach" and declare Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of Israel. “Our failure has also given a small country like Guatemala the green light to decide to relocate its embassy to al-Quds,” Maliki told Palestine’s official WAFA news agency on Thursday. He added that Guatemalan ...

Is Palestinian authority reviewing strategy against Israel?

1396/11/19 | 16:05
  The Palestinian cause has undergone various changes after Donald Trump was elected as US president. Trump in December 2017 recognized al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of an Israeli regime, putting the final nail in the coffin of optimism of some Palestinians to reach a peace deal with Zionists.   Recently, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) has released a statement calling on the Palestinian Authority, led by Mahmoud Abbas, as well as other Palestinian entities to cut off all links on all levels, especially the political ...

War Could Break Out in Gaza in Hours

1396/11/17 | 16:05
  Gaza is just days or even hours away from war, Palestinian factions warned, as tensions build between the militant group Hamas and Israel. Sources close to Hamas’s political leadership told the London-based newspaper Al-Hayat that chances of war with Israel “stood at 95 percent” and could happen at any moment.

In preparation, ...

Ahed Tamimi: A symbol of resistance against Zionist oppression

1396/11/17 | 16:05
  As has been reported in various media outlets, some days earlier, Israeli troops had shot one of Ahed’s cousins — also a teenager — thus eliciting the furious reaction from the young activist.

1396/11/12 | 16:05
  In Davos on Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahy was talking up what he’s calling a “new model” for a peace deal with the Palestinians, which appears to be his latest alternative to the two-state solution, which he once again refused to endorse.   Netanyahu complained he wanted to avoid “labels” by talking about two states, but set out a policy which is clearly well short of such a solution, offering to allow the Palestinians to have “the whole trappings of self-governance,” but with Israel maintaining ...

Kashmir and Palestine are punchbags for their occupiers

1396/10/20 | 16:05
  Kashmir and Palestine are two nations with too long a history but too small a geography. A history of mass-historical blunders; of occupation and oppression; of resistance and rebellion; of angst and determination; of hope and despair; of nation and nationhood; and of belief and belongings.   A geography whose walls of blood and horror are viewed as an exhibit in a case by outsiders but have no windows to the outside world; an odd conjecture yet fitting for Kashmir and Palestine. What broadly connects the two nations and elucidates ...

Israel sole winner of Saudi Arabia’s ME destabilizing game

1396/10/5 | 16:05
Being a region full of complexities, the Middle East has been facing a string of crises.
