Outrage in Egypt over Israeli Flag in educational book

1396/6/27 | 21:20
  In the wake of the controversy over the removal of Palestinian flag from the eight grade's social studies book and mentioning the Zionist regime's flag instead, the Egyptian Ministry of Education announced that a specialized technical committee will be set up to examine the issue.     According to Reza Hejazi, head of the Egyptian General Education Department, said the foreign book, which included the flag of Israel, did not obtain the distribution permission from the Ministry of Education and therefore was not validated ...

The United States and Russia rejected the request of Israel to keep Iran far from the Syrian border

1396/6/25 | 21:20
  Haaretz urged Russia and the United States to refrain from any ceasefire agreement in Syria with the presence of Iran or its united troops in southern Syria near the occupied Palestinian state.   Israel raised this demand during talks that took place before the July ceasefire agreement, which has been faced with Russia's opposition.   Senior Israeli Cabinet ministers refer to the US-Russia deal on Syria as a strategic failure of the highest level. “The United States threw Israel under the bus for the second time in a row.   The ...

Israel’s war against the United Nations

1396/6/23 | 21:20
  In Israel’s propaganda narrative, the apartheid state attempts to portray itself as upholding law and order in the “rough neighbourhood” that is the Middle East. In explicitly racist terminology, Israeli leaders talk about themselves as the “villa in the jungle,” as Ehud Barak once put it. But a simple look at the reality of what Israel has done and continues to do to the indigenous peoples of the Middle East shows the very opposite of law and order: death, destruction and disorder are the reign of the day. Israel has meant ...

Who will stop the Israeli settlements?

1396/6/20 | 21:20
  The Palestinian reaction to the decision of the Israeli defence minister to grant 800 settlers in the centre of Hebron independence from the municipality of Hebron was weak and did not match the action taken by the Israelis.     The Ramallah government warned against the fierce settlement attack waged by the Israeli government, through which it seeks to end any chances to revive the political process and end any trace of the international efforts in this regard. Warnings no longer scare Israel and it will not stop settlement ...

Imam Khamenei demands immediate end to domestic wars in Islamic countries

  Ayatollah Khamenei demanded an end to the catastrophic incidents in Islamic countries and stressed: the most important duty of Muslims is to save Palestine.   Ayatollah Khamenei’s Hajj 2017 message: In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master Muhammad – the Final Prophet – upon his immaculate household and upon his chosen companions   I thank God Almighty for bestowing, this year as well as previous years, the blessing ...

The Story of a Compromise

1396/6/4 | 21:20
  The chain of events concerning the compromises on Palestine began with the Rogers plan, gained prominence at Camp David, intensified in Madrid, set in ink in Oslo, and reached their height in Washington and Camp David 2.   Today, September 17th, coincides with the 36thsigning of the “Camp David” accords by the then President of Egypt Anwar al-Sadat, and the then Prime Minister of Israel, for which the stage was set by the then President of the United States. The leader of the revolution had this to say on the accords: “the ...

Israel’s anger with Turkey

1396/6/3 | 21:20
  The battle of Al-Aqsa Mosque is ongoing with the Netanyahu government, which is surrounded by corruption cases and drowning in the confidence crisis that is being threatened with the emergence of more evidence regarding its involvement in corrupt and suspicious deals.      Under the current circumstances, the Israeli government and its media mouthpieces found the best solution to be exporting its crisis abroad and fabricating crises with countries that support the worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque, beginning with Turkey and ...

Israel confiscates children’s toys in Jenin

1396/5/26 | 21:20
Israeli occupation forces yesterday announced that they confiscated children’s toys from the occupied West Bank city of Jenin. In a statement, the Israeli army said that its troops carried a campaign, the first of its kind, against air guns used by children fearing that they would be turned into “lethal weapons”. The commander of the Israeli Military Central Command issued a military order banning the possession of toys which are similar to real arms or which could be turned into real arms, the statement said. The Israeli occupation ...

Inner conflicts: Is PA committing treason to Palestine cause?

1396/5/19 | 21:20
  Fissures within the Palestinian camp also need to be addressed to form a united front against the Israeli occupation and to secure the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights.  In this regard, Mahmoud Abbas’s recent statement to step up sanctions on Gaza — ruled by Fatah’s rival Hamas — is unfortunate. While many states recognise the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority based in the West Bank as the ‘genuine leadership’ of the Palestinians, Hamas has been running Gaza’s affairs since it took over the tiny coastal strip in ...

US planning to air strikes in Palestine

1396/5/17 | 21:20
The US Department of Defense is weighing a new strategy that would authorize the military to expand its global drone strike program to the Philippines, according to a new report. The drone strikes would be part of an official operation against Daesh (ISIL) targets in the Southeast Asian country, NBC News reported Monday, citing two US military officials. According to the unnamed sources, the operation might be named as early as Tuesday, helping it to get more funding. A bloody standoff between government forces and extremist militants who ...

The deal: Israel’s endgame

1396/5/16 | 21:20
De facto what we have in Palestine today is precisely what the Zionist movement, the pre-state Yishuv and successive Israeli governments have been working towards since the start of the twentieth century: the complete “judaisation” of Palestine – transforming an Arab country into the Land of Israel. Having reached the de facto stage of complete judaisation, Netanyahu’s government is now “mopping up” – constructing infrastructure and settlements, eliminating along with the Palestinian Authority (PA) effective sources of resistance, ...

Can a land exchange resolve Israel-Palestine conflict?

1396/5/8 | 21:20
  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel could take control of West Bank settlements in exchange for Arab Israeli communities moving under Palestinian control, Israeli media said Friday.     Under the proposal for a solution to the Palestine-Israel question, Netanyahu reportedly told U.S. officials that the Wadi Ara region of Israel could be taken over by the Palestinian government.   The suggestion came during a meeting a few weeks ago with U.S. presidential adviser Jared Kushner and Ambassador Jason Greenblatt, ...

Is Abbas really halting contacts with Israel?

1396/5/3 | 21:20
  The President of the Palestinian Authority, the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas, declared a freeze on Friday on all contacts with Israel. His move was in protest at the latest measures taken by Israel at the Noble Sanctuary of Al-Aqsa, including the installation of metal detectors at the gates of the holy site. “Relations will be frozen at all levels until Israel commits itself to cancelling all its steps against the Palestinian people as a whole and against the city of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque in particular, ...

Saudi prince: ‘Let us go and fight for Al-Aqsa’

1396/5/3 | 21:20
The son of the late Saudi King Fahd Bin Abdulaziz took to the social networking site Twitter to discuss the events unfolding at Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Israeli restrictions imposed on Palestinian worshippers. In the tweets, Abdulaziz Bin Fahd called on Muslims and Arabs to stand in solidarity with Al-Aqsa. One tweet reads: “Every Muslim is obliged to support our brothers in Palestine and the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, everyone within their means. O nation of Muhammad, show them who you are. Neglecting Al-Aqsa would be a disgrace and God will hold ...

Israel Removes Metal Detectors From Around al-Aqsa Mosque

1396/5/3 | 21:20
Faced with soaring unrest related to the matter, Israel’s Security Cabinet has voted Tuesday morning to remove the metal detectors they set up around the outskirts of the al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the most important holy sites in Islam.   The metal detectors were wildly unpopular, with Palestinian officials accusing Israel of using security problems as a pretext to establish greater control over the holy site. The detectors fueled massive Friday protests, and warnings of more to come. Israeli officials don’t want to be seen backing ...

Arab’s Infighting: Israel launches plan of greater Israel

1396/5/2 | 21:20
  Earlier this month, Israel introduced security measures that severely compromised Palestinian access to al-Aqsa Mosque. These included metal detectors and barring entry to men under the age of 50.   Which explains why that particular gentleman was praying outside. Palestinian rights activists have decried these ‘protocols’ — pointing out that an occupying power has no legitimate grounds for denying freedom of worship. It is, they say, an attempt to expand illegitimate Israeli ‘control’ over the compound.     Palestinian ...

Iran raps Israel for ‘vicious crackdown’ on Palestinians

1396/5/2 | 21:20
Iran has strongly condemned Israeli regime's continued acts of aggression and brutal crackdown on Palestinians, calling on independent nations across the world to voice solidarity with the oppressed people.   bGhasemi criticized certain so-called promoters of Islam in region for their silence and inaction in the face of Israel’s aggression, calling on the international community, particularly the United Nations, to make an urgent probe into the unfortunate developments in the occupied territories and take a firm stance against Israel’s ...

Israel’s diplomatic expansion in the face of Arab retraction

1396/4/27 | 21:20
One of the manifestations of the fragmentation of the Arab nation is the decline of the Palestinian cause on the list of regional government priorities.   Palestine was the focus of the Arab unity project from the start of the occupation nearly seventy years ago, but no more. There are many reasons for this decline, including US hegemony in the Middle East and the evil alliance against the Arab people and their aspirations. This has pushed many Arab countries not only to abandon the Palestinian cause, but also to seek normalisation with ...

Why Iran’s supreme leader clubbed Kashmir with Yemen, and not with Palestine

1396/4/24 | 21:20
  In subsequent decades, Iranians watered down their rhetoric on Kashmir and strengthened ties with New Delhi.   When the then foreign minister Inder Kumar Gujral was about to undertake an official visit to Iran in 1991, the Iranian government conveyed to New Delhi that the minister was not welcome in Tehran. The Iranian rebuke came in the wake of an Indian military crackdown on pro-independence activists in Kashmir who Tehran considered were waging a legitimate struggle for independence. Four years later, in 1994, Iranians abstained ...

Abbas Visits Egypt to Try to Derail Hamas Rapprochement

1396/4/21 | 21:20
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has made an “emergency” visit to Cairo this weekend to meet with Egypt junta leader Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, seeking “clarification” on Egypt’s growing rapprochement with Hamas, and hoping to derail the move. Egypt recently reopened the Gaza border crossing, which threatens to derail Abbas’ efforts to destabilize the Gaza Strip and try to force Hamas to relinquish control. The risks have gotten even bigger for Abbas, however, with key rival Mohammed Dahlan now working on a power-sharing ...

Israeli settler runs over, injures pregnant Palestinian woman

1396/4/19 | 21:20
An Israeli settler has reportedly run over and injured a pregnant Palestinian woman in the southern part of the occupied West Bank. Local sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the 28-year-old victim, identified as Abeer Bassam Joubarah, was walking along the main road next to al-Arroub refugee camp, located 15 kilometers south of Bethlehem, on Sunday morning when she was struck by a settler's vehicle, Arabic-language Safa news network reported. Palestinian medics quickly rushed to the scene and provided the injured woman with ...

Palestinians angered by Indian leader Modi's 'biased' Israel visit

1396/4/16 | 21:20
Ramallah has expressed disappointment at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's refusal to visit the Palestinian territories during his state visit to Israel.   Palestinian Deputy Foreign Minister Tasir Jaradat told Al Jazeera that the Indian leader's historic visit to Israel would be overshadowed by his decision not to meet President Mahmoud Abbas during the three-day tour. "We expected him [Modi] to visit both Israel and Palestine," Jaradat told Al Jazeera."To play an important role between the two sides and to be able ...

Visiting Israel: Is Modi isolating India from Muslim countries?

1396/4/13 | 21:20
  Narendra Modi becomes the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel when he arrives on Tuesday, the result of growing ties that have led to billions of dollars in defence deals.     Israel, in constant search of allies to vote in its favour at UN bodies as well as business partners, has been portraying the visit as historic.     Israeli analysts have also noted Modi will apparently not travel to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian leaders during his three-day stay, as is common for many foreign dignitaries. Modi ...

Abbas’ siege on Gaza: The goals and the financial benefits

1396/4/11 | 21:20
  Since Hamas’ victory in the parliamentary elections on 25 January 2006, the president of the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, has been collaborating with the forces of the occupation to place Gaza under siege for approximately ten years now.   These endeavours – directly or indirectly – have been aiming to suffocate Palestinian resistance and any potential to establish a viable and independent Palestinian state. Abbas’ latest measures, which include cutting the salaries of the families of martyrs and the wounded, as well as all employees, ...

Zionist indoctrination: The nefarious plan to change Palestinian’s ideology

1396/4/11 | 21:20
  Young Palestinian Faris Abu-Mayyaleh will soon find out how he did in his final high school exams, in which he answered questions about Israel’s founding fathers and the history of Zionism.     Faris, 18, chose to study the Israeli curriculum instead of the Palestinian equivalent in the hope that it will open more doors at colleges in Israel and help him get work there. “I know it’s the ‘Occupation’. But Palestine, Israel — I don’t care. I just want to go to university,” said Abu-Mayyaleh, who lives and studies ...

Fear of unrest: #Saudis_against_normalisation with Israel

1396/4/8 | 21:20
Saudis have taken to social media to counter a campaign to encourage normalisation with Israel, tweeting using the hashtag “Saudis against normalisation”. Activists described normalising relations with Israel as “an explicit act of treason that must be reconsidered and whose dangers must be unveiled.” This comes as news has been circulating that Saudi Arabia’s actions against Qatar in recent weeks have been to harm the Palestinian resistance and edge it closer to the occupation state, Israel. They also demanded people not adhere to ...

Remembering what the Supreme leaders of Iran said about Al-Quds day

1396/4/3 | 21:20
  Al-Quds Day (يوم القدس) takes place every year on the last Friday of the month of Ramazan. Soon after the Islamic revolution in Iran, Imam Khomeini called on Muslims to dedicate this day to demanding the rights of oppressed Muslims around the world - particularly in Palestine. On this day, rallies are organised before Friday prayer to protest against the occupation of Palestine.   Since the end of Ramzan varies from country to country, if the last day of Ramzan falls on Friday or Saturday in Iran, Al-Quds day will be held ...

Mass killing of Palestinians: Rabbi Calls for Poisoning of Palestinian Water Supply

1396/4/2 | 21:20
  Rabbi Shlomo Mlmad, the chairman of the so-called Council of Rabbis in West Bank settlements, called on settlers to poison Palestinians through their water supply, which came to light by the Israeli organization ‘Breaking the Silence’ . Group member Yehuda Shaul said, according to WAFA, that the aim behind poisoning water in the West Bank is to push Palestinians out of their towns and cities in order to allow settlers to take over Palestinian lands.   The ministry of foreign affairs said, in a press release, that Palestinians ...

Qaradawi accuses Saudi Arabia of cooperating with Israel

1396/3/26 | 21:20
Yusuf al-Qaradawi stressed that Muslim Brotherhood is a Muslim congregation, a true defender of Islam and Muslims' pivotal issue which is Palestine.   I ask god for forgiveness that I remained silent against Saudi ruling family and what they have done to Muslims so far, he added. Qaradawi said: “what is painful is that Sisi sold Tiran and Sanafir to the Saudis and Zionists so they oppose with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Resistance. They forced me to leave Qatar. It is a betrayal to Muslims and Egyptians. Emirati officials who ...

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

1396/3/25 | 21:20
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.     Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing ...

The selective Justice: The politically tainted UN

1396/3/17 | 21:20
  Imperialism at the United Nations is still alive and kicking. The world body would have us applaud its efforts to investigate war crimes, including genocide, in Syria and hold those responsible to account.   However, the International Criminal Court is out of the picture for the time being given that Moscow has wielded its UNSC privilege to veto the move.   This is nothing new. The UN has long been known to have lost its bite. If it were a body that had teeth to bare we wouldn’t be sitting here talking of war crimes ...

Egyptian Writer: Indeed, Imam Khamenei is the Imam and the Leader of All Muslims, the Sunnis before the Shiites

1396/3/13 | 21:20
I have watched the conference of the Support of the Palestinian Uprising in Tehran. I have listened to the speech of Imam Khamenei about Palestine, and that the Zionist regime is a cancerous tumor that should annihilated.   Then, I realized that Imam Khamenei is an Imam and a Leader for all Muslims, the Sunnis before the Shiites. The proof is his support of the Palestinian issue; all the Palestinians are Sunnis, if Imam Khamenei was a leader solely for the Shiites, he would not care about Palestine, or call for liberating Palestine. I ...

Another gamble: Abbas to propose large-scale land swap with Israel

1396/3/2 | 21:20
  A Palestinian official says President Mahmoud Abbas will propose exchanging 6.5 percent of the Palestinian territory to Israel, more than triple the amount put forward in a previous land-swap initiative.   The official close to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) told Middle East Eye on Sunday that Abbas would make the proposal during US President Donald Trump's forthcoming visit to the West Bank.   “The Palestinian side will be presenting a new vision which is quite detached from that of the majority of the ...

Prolonging hunger strike: Would UN feel any shame?

1396/2/26 | 21:20
  The Palestinians are demanding improved prison conditions, including the doing away with administrative detention, which flies in the face of any kind of procedural transparency.    The situation is different from anywhere else in the world. Israel is an occupying nation and its responsibility for Palestinian security is meant to extend to those whom it locks up.   Yet instead, the Israelis are force-feeding many of the hunger strikers, despite the fact that international legal norms recognise this from of prolonged fasting ...

Palestinian mass hunger strike takes dramatic turn

1396/2/24 | 21:20
    More Palestinian prisoners are joining the mass hunger strike which entered its 26th day Friday, with the campaign assuming global proportions amid worsening health conditions of hundreds of strikers languishing in Israeli jails.   Sawt al-Asra (Voice of Prisoners) radio cited anonymous sources as saying that nearly 100 Palestinian inmates from different political factions have decided to join the hunger strike.     The radio estimated that nearly 1,800 prisoners are currently participating in the strike. ...

Hamas’s gamble: Did Hamas put the ball in Israel’s court?

1396/2/23 | 21:20
  Hamas made headlines last week by releasing a new political document, with many hoping it could help usher a more hopeful phase in the longstanding occupation of Palestine by Israel.      Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal took to a podium in Doha to announce that Hamas would be open to accepting a Palestine based on the 1967 borders. The change in strategy came as a surprise to most international observers but seems to be the result of much deliberation within the Hamas leadership.   Hamas’s new political document suggests ...

Why Kashmir has become another Palestine?

1396/2/19 | 21:20
  India has launched a crackdown against Kashmiris turning it to another Palestine. The situation quite clearly is has become far more serious and simply cannot – must not – be ignored any longer.      The voices within the Indian parliament are not sufficiently strong. For this reason the world needs to come together and act in a unified fashion as has happened in other parts of the world, the Kashmiris on their own have struggled month after month against the most brutal of forces.     At least 90 people ...

Hamas’s policy shift: Is it a concrete step towards two-state solution?

1396/2/18 | 21:20
  While Israel’s rejection of it makes sense from the point of view of the long-term Zionist project, the policy document unveiled by the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) also evoked criticism from the Palestinian Authority, which reminded the Hamas leadership that wisdom had dawned on it 43 years late.   Monday’s documents outlining Hamas’s “principles and general policies” mark a major departure from the 1988 charter and call for establishing a Palestinian state on the pre-1967 war borders.   More ...

7,000 Soldiers Desert Israeli Army Annually

1396/2/6 | 21:20
  New figures announced by the Israeli army revealed on Wednesday the failure of its plan to reduce the number of desertions. The figures showed that some 7,000 soldiers desert the army, either due to illness or faking an illness, before the end of their military service. According to the Manpower Directorate in the army, one in seven soldiers in 2016 did complete their military service, were discharged or expelled, said a military source. The phenomenon of desertion is increasing despite Israeli attempts to limit it. Desertions by ...

Has Iran media declined support to Palestine issue?

1396/1/10 | 21:20
  In an op-ed published in Al-Araby Al-Jadeed by Adnan Abu Umer claims that Iran media is losing interest in Palestine’s problem.   He wrote” Iran has cut the expenses of its media offices in Palestine and has not paid debts of $3 million to local television production companies for the hire of equipment and satellite time; some of these companies have worked with the Iranians for up to 10 years, but that has made no difference; debts have not been paid.   Nor has Iran paid its correspondents for many months, and there ...

Zionist’s cat is out of bag: ISIS declares it will kill Palestinians “One By One”!

1396/1/6 | 21:20
  ISIS has declared war on Palestine, threatening genocide against the Palestinian people, following the murder of Hamas’ senior commander Saber Siam on Sunday.     ISIS militants said that Siam was killed due to the fact he was “a partner in a declared war against religion and against Muslims, working for the heretical government in Gaza”.     The attack was conducted by ISIS-affiliated Salafist rebels who have also warned local residents to stay away from Hamas offices and buildings as it plans to carry ...

A powerless organization: Is UN working against Muslims?

1395/12/30 | 21:20
    The head of the United Nation’s West Asia commission resigned on Friday, after what she described as pressure from the secretary general to withdraw a report accusing Israel of imposing an “apartheid regime” on Palestinians.     The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), which comprises 18 Arab states, published the report on Wednesday and said it was the first time a UN body had clearly made the charge.     UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had asked the commission to remove ...

Israel arrested 15,000 Palestinian women since 1967

1395/12/23 | 21:20
  Israel has arrested some 15,000 Palestinian women since 1967, a Palestinian organisation revealed in a report today.     The Commission for Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs added that there are currently 65 women and girls held by Israel, 16 of them minors, 18 married, 11 sick, and one held under administrative detention.   The women are held in Sharon and Damon prisons, the report said ahead of International Women’s Day which is marked tomorrow.     Shireen Al-Issawi, sister of former hunger striker ...

Israeli army is world’s best terrorist organization

1395/12/22 | 21:20
    Before some idiot call me antisemite – the title of this post comes from Israel-American author and human rights activist Miko Peled 2012 statement.US Army Capt (ret) Joe Cortina made a similar statement about Israeli army during an interview he gave to Iranian journalist Kourosh Ziabari in August 2012.     On December 17, 2015, the Jewish News Online published an interview with Jurgen Todenhofer, the German reporter who had spent 10 days with the US-Israel created terrorist group ISIS in Iraq – claiming ...

Genocide plan of Palestinians: Israel to use ‘killer robots’ to eliminate Palestinians

1395/12/18 | 21:20
  Israel’s minister without portfolio Ayoub Kara has revealed that the Israeli army is to use robots to eliminate “terror leaders” from Hamas and Hezbollah, the media reported at the weekend.     Kara made his claim at a cultural event in Beer Sheva. “After what happened in Gaza and Lebanon, I don’t want Israel Defence Forces soldiers to enter any more,” he told the audience.     Brushing aside disbelieving comments, Kara pointed out that nobody could ever have imagined the extent to which unmanned drones have ...
