Obama’s misstep – Israel’s ’67 borders would cripple defense and peace – Why suggest it then?

May 24, 2011

I believe that Obama’s goal is the Muslim goal primarily.  He is a Communist secondarily.  He’s an anti Colonialist, as defined by the African definition.  If one is anti – colonialist, then one is against the West and ALL that the WEST represents. This, indeed, means anti – Jewish and Christian, anti- Capitalist and anti – Socialist, this further means anti – Capitalist.  This leave Theocracy and nothing else.  THIS is OBAMA.

This also means that a Caliphate across the ME, would not be objectionable to him.  He is after all a TRUE son to Africa, not America.  Regardless of his birth place, he is African.  He’s SAID so.

Obama’s diversionary tactics

By Caroline B. Glick

What did the president wish to accomplish by purposely starting an ugly fight with the prime minister this past weekend? 

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | As the Washington Post pointed out on Friday, US President Barack Obama purposely provoked the current fight with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. He knew full well that Netanyahu does not back the Palestinian formulation that negotiations with Israel must be based on the indefensible 1949 armistice lines, or what are wrongly referred to as the 1967 lines. In the days leading up to Obama’s speech last Thursday, Israel registered explicit, repeated requests that he not adopt the Palestinian position that negotiations should be based on those lines.

And so it was a stinging rebuke when Obama declared Thursday: “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.” According to the Washington Post, Obama wrote these lines of his speech himself and Netanyahu was informed of them just as he was scheduled to fly to the US on Thursday evening. Obama gave the speech while Netanyahu was in the air on his way to Washington to meet Obama the next morning. It is hard to think of a more stunning insult or a greater display of contempt for the leader of a US ally and fellow democracy than Obama’s actions last week. And it is obvious that Netanyahu had no choice but to react forcefully to Obama’s provocation.

The question is why would Obama act as he did? What did he wish to accomplish by purposely starting such an ugly fight with Netanyahu?

Probably the best way to figure out what Obama wished to accomplish is to consider what he did accomplish, because the two are undoubtedly related.

ON MAY 4, two weeks before Obama gave his speech, Fatah and Hamas signed a unity agreement. Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Like its fellow Brotherhood satellite al-Qaida, Hamas shares the Brotherhood’s ideology of global jihad, the destruction of Western civilization and the establishment of a global caliphate. Also like al-Qaida, it is a terrorist organization which, since its establishment in 1987 has murdered more than a thousand Israelis.

In 2005, Hamas subcontracted itself out to the Iranian regime. Since then, its men have been trained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and by Hezbollah. Hamas maintains operational ties with both outfits and receives most of its weapons and significant funding from Iran.

The agreement between Fatah and Hamas makes Hamas a partner in the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. It also paves the way for Hamas to win the planned Palestinian legislative and presidential elections that are scheduled for September just after the UN General Assembly is scheduled to endorse Palestinian statehood. It also sets the conditions for Hamas to integrate its forces and eventually take over the UStrained Palestinian army in Judea and Samaria and to join the PLO.

The Hamas-Fatah unity deal constitutes a complete repudiation of the assumptions informing Obama’s policies towards the Palestinians and Israel. Obama perceives the conflict as a direct consequence of two things: prior US administrations’ refusal to “put light” between the US and Israel, and Israel’s unwillingness to surrender all of the territory it took during the course of the 1967 Six Day War.

The Hamas-Fatah unity deal is indisputable proof that contrary to what Obama believes, the conflict has nothing to do with previous administrations’ support for Israel or with Israel’s size. It is instead entirely the consequence of the Palestinians’ rejection of Israel’s right to exist and their commitment to bringing about Israel’s destruction.

Forcing Israel into indefensible boundaries, (which as Netanyahu explained to Obama at the White House on Friday, “were not the boundaries of peace, they were the boundaries of repeated wars because the attack on Israel was so attractive for them,”), will not advance the cause of peace. It will advance the Palestinians’ goal of destroying Israel.

Obama had two options for contending with the Palestinian unity deal. He could pay attention to it or he could create a distraction in order to ignore it. If he paid attention to it, he would have been forced to disavow his policy of blaming his predecessors in the White House and Israel for the absence of peace. By creating a distraction he would be able to change the subject in a manner that would enable him to maintain those policies.

And so he picked a fight with Netanyahu. And by picking the fight, he created a distraction that has, in fact, changed the subject and enabled Obama to maintain his policies that have been wholly repudiated by the reality of the Palestinian unity deal.

By inserting the citation of the 1949 armistice lines into his speech, Obama made Israel’s size again the issue.

The Hamas-Fatah unity deal actually demonstrates that not only is Israel’s size not the cause of the conflict, it is the main reason that Israelis and Palestinians live in relative peace.

Israel’s control over Judea and Samaria and east Jerusalem, and with them, its ability to ward off invasion and attacks on its major cities is what has prevented wars. If Israel were more vulnerable, the de facto Palestinian terror state would not be weighing whether or not to begin a new terror war as its leaders from Fatah and Hamas are doing today. It would be waging a continuous campaign of terror whose clear aim is Israel’s destruction for again, as Netanyahu said the 1949 armistice lines make war an attractive option for Israel’s enemies.

BY PICKING a fight with Netanyahu, since Thursday, no one could have possibly noted this basic truth because the false issue of Israel’s control over these areas — that is, Israel’s size — has dominated the global discourse on the Middle East.

Obama would never have been able to create his diversion from the unwelcome fact of Palestinian duplicity and rejectionism, to imaginary problem with the size of Israel without the enthusiastic support given to him by the Israeli Left.

Led by opposition leader Tzipi Livni, the Israeli Left responded to Obama’s full-scale assault on Israel’s legitimacy by launching a full-scale partisan assault on Netanyahu. Rather than back Netanyahu as he fights for the country’s future, Livni called for him to resign and said that he was wrecking Israel’s ties with the US. In so doing, the Left provided crucial support for Obama’s move to maintain his phony anti- Israel paradigm for Middle East policymaking in the face of the Palestinian unity deal’s repudiation of that model.

The Left’s assault on Netanyahu is not the only way it has enabled Obama to maintain his pro-Palestinian policies in the face of the Palestinians’ embrace of terror and war. In his speech to AIPAC, Obama argued that Israel needs to surrender its defensible boundaries because the Palestinians are about to demographically challenge Israel’s Jewish majority.

As Obama put it, “The number of Palestinians living west of the Jordan River is growing rapidly and fundamentally reshaping the demographic realities of both Israel and the Palestinian territories. This will make it harder and harder — without a peace deal — to maintain Israel as both a Jewish state and a democratic state.”

The demographic time bomb story is a Palestinian fabrication. In 1997, the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics published a falsified Palestinian census that inflated Palestinian population data by 50 percent. The Israeli Left adopted this fake report as its own when Palestinian terrorism and political warfare convinced the majority of Israelis that it was unwise to give them any more land and that the peace process was a lie.

Since 2004, repeated, in-depth studies of Jewish and Arab birthrates and immigration/ emigration statistics west of the Jordan River undertaken by independent researchers have shown that the demographic time bomb is a dud. In January, the respected demographer Yaakov Faitelson published a study for the Institute of Zionist Strategies in which he definitively put to rest the tale of pending Jewish demographic doom.

As Faitelson demonstrated, Jewish and Arab birthrates are already converging west of the Jordan River at around three children per woman. And whereas the fertility rates of Israeli Arabs, Gazans and residents of Judea and Samaria are all trending downward, Jewish fertility is consistently rising. Moreover, whereas the Arabs are experiencing consistently negative net immigration rates, Jewish net immigration rates are positive and high.

Faitelson based his multiyear projections on current population numbers in which Jews comprise 58.6 percent of the population west of the Jordan River and Muslims constitute 38.7% of the overall population. Non-Jewish, non-Muslim minorities comprise the other 2.7%. Using assessment baselines for Jewish net immigration well below current averages, Faitelson showed that in the years to come, not only will Jews not lose our demographic majority. We will increase it.

Faitelson’s study, like the studies published since 2004 by the American-Israeli Demographic Research Group show that from a demographic perspective, Israel is in the same situation as many Western states today. Namely, it has to develop policies for dealing with an irredentist minority population.

There are many reasonable, liberal policies that Israel can adopt. These include applying the liberal Israeli legal code to Judea and Samaria and enforcing the laws of treason. It is hard to see why the best policy for Israel is to take some of that irredentist population off its books by establishing a terror state ruled by what Netanyahu rightly referred to as “the Israeli equivalent of al-Qaida” on its border.

ALL OF this brings us back to Hamas, terrorism, the Palestinian rejection of Israel’s right to exist, and Obama’s diversionary moves to facilitate his preservation of a Middle East policy based on a wholly false and discredited assessment of reality and the Israeli Left’s facilitation of Obama’s efforts.

When we realize what Obama is up to, we recognize as well what Netanyahu must do in response.

In his address before Congress on today and in all of his appearances in the coming weeks and months, Netanyahu should have one goal: to bring the focus of debate back where it belongs — on the Palestinians.

At every opportunity, Netanyahu needs to pound the message that the Palestinians’ commitment to Israel’s destruction is the sole reason that there is no peace.

As for the Israeli Left, it is high time that Netanyahu place the likes of Livni on the defensive. This involves two things. First, Netanyahu must attack the Left’s doomsday demographic projections that are without factual basis and are indeed antithetical to reality. As long as the demographic lie goes unchallenged by Netanyahu, the Left will continue to argue that by refusing to build a terror state on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, Netanyahu is endangering Israel.

Netanyahu deserves a lot of credit for standing up to Obama on Friday. He showed enormous courage in doing so. It was his finest hour to date and polls over the weekend show that the public appreciates and supports him for it. He must build on that success by putting the focus on the truth.

Palestine – FATAH and HAMAS united

May 5, 2011

The implications are minimal to the US, but Israel is in the cross hairs.

Obama seems to love to do EVERYTHING to set it things up in the worst way for Israel.

FATAH and HAMAS are two very different type of organizations with both guns pointed at Israel.  And for what?

Everytime Israel gave them anything they destroyed it.  Israel gave up some very nicely developed areas, which had parks and schools and water aquifers

The hate is their enemy.  Israel and the Jews (real Jews) will survive.

Palestinians Celebrate Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation Ceremony In Cairo

Posted by John J. Xenakis May 5th 2011 at 11:01 am in

Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank and refugee camps celebrated on Wednesday. In Gaza’s Square of the Unknown Soldier, a demonstration turned into a raucous party of thousands cheering, chanting and waving flags, according to the Guardian.

Palestinians celebratePalestinians celebrate

The occasion was a ceremony in Cairo, attended by representatives from the U.N., the EU, and the Arab League, for the signing of a reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas. The two factions have been bitter rivals since a 2007 war, when Hamas defeated Fatah for control of Gaza. Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the governing body associated with Fatah, and Khaled Meshaal, leader of the Hamas, identified by the U.S. as a terrorist group, met for the first time in five years to sign the agreement.

The reconciliation agreement is an important step on the way to getting the United Nations General Assembly to unilaterally create a Palestinian state in September by international mandate. A reconciliation is an important prerequisite.

Abbas said that they had forever turned “the black page of divisions.” Meshall spelled out Hamas’s goal:

“Our aim is to establish a free and completely sovereign Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, whose capital is Jerusalem, without any settlers and without giving up a single inch of land and without giving up on the right of return [of Palestinian refugees].”

In fact, several years ago, the Middle East Quartet (United Nations, Russian Federation, United States, European Union) set three conditions for Hamas: recognize the state of Israel; renounce violence; and honor past Israeli-Palestinian agreements. Hamas has said that it will not agree to any of these conditions.

Furthermore, Hamas officials have been openly criticial of the U.S. military action that led to Osama bin Laden’s death, according to the Jerusalem Post. On Monday, Hamas Gaza prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, said:

“We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior. … We regard this, as a continuation of the American policy based on oppression and the shedding of Muslim and Arab blood.”

Thus, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was extremely critical of the agreement:

“What happened today in Cairo is a tremendous blow to peace and a great victory for terrorism. I think the fate of the Middle East and the fate of peace hangs in the balance.”

Netanyahu made this statement while visiting British prime minister David Cameron. Cameron’s office had issued a statement critical of Netanyahu that said:

“This is a time to pursue not ignore the Middle East peace process. That will be his main message to Mr Netanyahu today. We need to study the detail of the agreement but, as the prime minister was making clear in the House of Commons yesterday, we hope that Palestinian unity between Fatah and Hamas will be a step forward.”

However, after the meeting, Cameron was more conciliatory:

“The leaders discussed today’s announcement on Palestinian unity. Prime Minister Cameron said that any new Palestinian government must reject violence, recognise Israel’s right to exist and engage in the peace process, and that Britain would judge it by its actions.”

It’s always interesting to watch politicians dance like this, waiting until they have a chance to conduct a public opinion poll, so they’ll know what to believe.

On the one hand, it almost seems that a Palestinian state in September has become an unstoppable train. On the other hand, there are many serious issues standing in the way.

Netanyahu: Fatah-Hamas unity a blow to peace process

By TOVAH LAZAROFF
05/04/2011 15:58

“3 days ago, terrorism was dealt a resounding defeat with the elimination of bin Laden. Today, in Cairo, it had a victory,’ says PM.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

LONDON – The signing of the Hamas-Fatah unity deal in Cairo is a setback for peace – and an advancement for terrorism – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told reporters in London on Wednesday.

“What happened today in Cairo is a tremendous blow to peace and a great victory for terrorism,” he said. “Three days ago, terrorism was dealt a resounding defeat with the elimination of Osama bin Laden. Today, in Cairo, it had a victory.”

In signing this deal, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had “embraced” an organization that had condemned the American operation against the al-Qaida leader and called him a “great martyr,” the prime minister said.

“When he embraces this organization, which is committed to Israel’s destruction and fires rockets on our cities, this is a tremendous setback for peace and a great advancement for terror,” Netanyahu said.

“What we hope will happen is that we find peace, and the only way we can make peace is with our neighbors who want peace. Those who want to eliminate us, those who practice terror, are not partners for peace.”

He spoke before a meeting set for late Wednesday night with British Prime MinisterDavid Cameron.

Israeli officials said Netanyahu hoped to persuade Cameron to promise that the UK would not support the deal unless Hamas accepted the three principles set out by the Quartet for international recognition of the Islamist movement: that Hamas recognizeIsrael, renounce terrorism and abide by the PLO’s agreements with Israel.

Hamas refused to do so.

On Thursday, Netanyahu is expected to make the same request when he meets with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

A spokesman for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday that Ban had always supported efforts for Palestinian unity, but wanted them to play out within the framework of the Quartet’s principles – and urged all Palestinian factions to adhere to them.

Still, he sent Robert Serry, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, to Cairo for Wednesday’s ceremony.

The European Union was even more cautious about supporting the Fatah-Hamasagreement and sent only a councilor from its embassy in Cairo.

The US did not have any formal representative at the ceremony.

Speaking on Channel 2 on Wednesday evening, Middle East Quartet envoy Tony Blair gave a plug for Palestinian unity, but only with certain conditions attached.

He said he was “in favor of Palestinian unity. It is essential for peace, but it must be unity on the right terms; it must be genuine unity.”

Blair added, however, that the contrasting Palestinian reactions to the killing by US forces of Osama bin Laden earlier this week “expresses what the issue is” regarding the worrying aspects of the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement.

“[PA Prime Minister Salam] Fayyad said the death was good news and [Hamas Prime Minister Ismail] Haniyeh said he [bin Laden] was a ‘warrior.’” “If Hamas was changing… in peaceful means… this would be positive… but you just need to look at Haniyeh’s comments” to understand this has not been the case, Blair said.

As for Netanyahu’s comments that the agreement was “a victory for terror,” Blair said, “I think the reaction of the Israeli government is justified. For us in the international community, the door is open to come into this [peace] process – but only if conditions are made.”

He criticized Israel’s decision to stop transferring tax funds to the PA, now that Hamas is joining the PA government.

“In respect to the [tax] revenue made on behalf of the Palestinians, it should be given to them,” Blair said.

He also reiterated his objection to a unilateral Palestinian declaration of statehood.

“The only way you will get a Palestinian state is by negotiation,” Blair said.

But Netanyahu’s largest coalition partner, Israel Beiteinu, said on Wednesday that the time for negotiations had passed. It announced that in light of the agreement between Fatah and Hamas, it would demand that the government cease all contact between Israel and the PA. The party called to stop various inter-ministerial initiatives with the PA, as well as the transfer of money to its government.

“It is impossible to expect the State of Israel to transfer money to Hamas – and in doing so, to fund terrorism activities against Israel’s citizens,” Beiteinu said.

“Those who declared bin Laden to be a Muslim freedom fighter, as Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh did, and those who refuse to allow the Red Cross to visit Gilad Schalit cannot be partners in negotiations, either directly or indirectly.”

Separately, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon (Israel Beiteinu), who is in Eastern Europe, called on the European Union to threaten the Palestinians with financial consequences, should they fail to follow the Quartet’s principles.

“As the largest funders of the Palestinian Authority, you have a heavy responsibility to make it clear to the Palestinians that failure to comply with the Quartet’s conditions will be met with sanctions,” Ayalon said.

He spoke after meeting with Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet.

Israel – Four Arab lawyers acted as spies

April 20, 2011

Well, what else do you call it?

They acted as SPIES!

I wonder what the punishment is for spying under Israeli law?

Eh. Israel doesn’t have the SHANK bone required for this anymore.  They are not going to do anything about this treasonous activity.

Four Arab lawyers suspected of passing messages for Islamic Jihad

The four are suspected of passing information from Islamic Jihad prisoners in Israel to the group’s officials in Gaza, in return for thousands of shekels.

Four Arab lawyers working in Jerusalem have been arrested in recent weeks for allegedly passing information from prisoners from Islamic Jihad jailed in Israel to the group’s officials in Gaza, according to details that emerged Wednesday after a gag order was lifted.

Among the four is Suhir Ayoub, a 42-year-old female lawyer from Acre in northern Israel.

Israel Police

According to the suspicions against them, the four lawyers received letters from the security prisoners. Some of the messages were innocuous, and contained only greetings, but others dealt with the hierarchy of Islamic Jihad, appointments to various positions within the organization, coordination of strikes by prisoners and also the group’s stance on Hamas.

In exchange for their services, the lawyers allegedly received thousands of shekels from Mahajat Al-Quds, an organization outlawed in Israel in June 2006.

Police said that the four confessed to the allegations against them, and searches of their homes turned up documents linking them to the alleged activity. Ayoub was to be indicted on Wednesday, while the investigation against the other three continues.

Ayoub’s lawyer said that she denies all charges against her.

“She visited detainees within her role as a lawyer and the information she received from them exclusively related to their personal issues which had no connection to this or any other illegal terrorist organization,” Ayoub’s lawyer said.

Subhuman Hamas terrorists target children, attacking a yellow school bus with a high-tech missile

An Israeli tank drives next to the border between Israel and the southern Gaza Strip after a recent surge in violence.

An Israeli tank drives next to the border between Israel and the southern Gaza Strip after a recent surge in violence.

 

This was a war crime by any definition: Hamas deliberately and in cold blood targeted an Israeli school bus for a rocket attack.

This bears repeating so the words ring loudly against the silence of the hypocrites of the United Nations Human Rights Council: Hamas fired a laser-aimed anti-tank missile at a yellow school bus with the intent of killing children.

Hamas blew up the bus in retaliation for Israel‘s killing of three of the terror group’s commanders, men responsible for the rain of missiles coming out of Gaza into southern Israel.

Declared Hamas: “This is an initial response to the occupation’s crime, the latest of which was the assassination of the three holy fighters.”

Thus, Hamas has openly stated its philosophy: You kill my soldier; I kill your child.

In this case, Hamas managed to critically wound a 16-year-old boy, the only passenger on the bus. The driver had just dropped off 30 other students.

The bus attack was part of a fusillade of terror. In the hours after the strike, terrorists indiscriminately fired 45 rockets and mortars at civilian areas in the south of Israel.

They aim to kill anyone, while Israel aims to kill killers. Yes, there are sometimes civilian casualties. When that tragedy happens, it’s one that had been invited by Hamas, which as a strategy puts weapons storage and launching facilities in dense urban areas.

Israel endlessly apologizes and holds its forces accountable for inexcusable errors. For it never deliberately targets nonmilitants. Even Richard Goldstone has retracted the libelous accusation he made to the contrary in his destructive Human Rights Council report on Israel’s offensive into Gaza in 2008 and 2009.

In his retraction, Goldstone pronounced that the council’s “history of bias against Israel cannot be doubted,” and he called on the body to denounce Hamas for its rocket barrages. Fat chance. Attack a school bus? Who cares?

Israel has responded militarily to the attempted murder, as it must. Watch for cries that its use of force is criminal. Watch for hand-wringing and lamentations about the “cycle of violence,” as if everyone is to blame. And watch as some shirk from applying the term “terrorist” to Hamas, insisting on using an antiseptic term like “militants.”

These men, these murderers, are proud of what they do. “Terrorist” isn’t strong enough for them. How about “savages”?

The Goldstone Reports LIBEL defamation of Israel is confirmed by the UN

April 2, 2011

And all Goldstone could say is well, if I only knew back then what I know today, then blah blah

Well, before writing it down in a report that YOU attested was the ABSOLUTE truth, you should have done more to try to disprove what you in your heart WANTED to be true.  Thats called being FAIR.

This man created a REPORT that for nearly four years cost Israel it’s character.  For that time, Israel continued to do what was RIGHT despite being deionized by this MONSTER.

This man calls HIMSELF a Jew.  He is NOTHING of the sort.  He has no religion other than Communism.  I want to know who’s seen this man in a TEMPLE and what Temple, because I know most of them are corrupt.  The Temples here in Austin sure are.  I’ve been to every one of them.  They are not Jews.  They go through SOME of the motions, but they have NO heart, not for G-d anyway.  They may have heart for something, but it’s not for the Torah.  They are PROGRESSIVE mouth pieces and have been at the alter of the Communists.  Most are bought and paid for.  The Black “churches” have the same problem.  The method is the SAME.  There are some legitimate Synagogues out there, I’m sure, but I come across them less and less, and being here in Austin, I don’t attend ANY.  I practice at home, which leaves me crippled, because Religion, by definition is Social.  I also, don’t get to teach my daughter Hebrew.  I wish I could.  I barely get to teach her Russian.  Oh well, such as life.

This vermin, however, is not a Jew.  This is what the middle east sees as what a Jew is.  No wonder they this us all corrupt.  A real Jew is not.  This forked tongue snake is creating a secondary Libel.  Making people think that THIS is part of Judaism.

Israel needs to do three things:

1. They need to sue him personally on behalf of the Isreali people in a class action law suite for Libel.

2. They need to sue the African and American governments as standing behind the report.

3. They should seek a formal apology from the UN and a statement should be issued against those who were involved.

South African judge Richard Goldstone, author of a UN report on Israel's Gaza offensive two years ago, pictured here in 2009, said Saturday his work would have been "a different document" had he been given access to information available today.

This has trashed Israel’s image and was done on purpose.  They knew how long it would take to get to the TRUTH.  They knew how many MORE lies can be built on that LIE.  These would get tangled up.  Know one will remember where certain allegations stemmed from in two more years.  The Goldstone Report will vanish but the damage that this report has done and the amount of weight that it was allowed to carry, is not REPAIRABLE.  The only potential solution is a explicit apology and a FULL investigation as to how this lie was allowed to be presented and then perpetuated.

Reconsidering the Goldstone Report on Israel and war crimes

By Richard Goldstone, Friday, April 1, 8:42 PM

We know a lot more today about what happened in the Gaza war of 2008-09 than we did when I chaired the fact-finding mission appointed by the U.N. Human Rights Council that produced what has come to be known as the Goldstone Report. If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been a different document.

The final report by the U.N. committee of independent experts — chaired by former New York judge Mary McGowan Davis — that followed up on the recommendations of the Goldstone Report has found that “Israel has dedicated significant resources to investigate over 400 allegations of operational misconduct in Gaza” while “the de facto authorities (i.e., Hamas) have not conducted any investigations into the launching of rocket and mortar attacks against Israel.”

Our report found evidence of potential war crimes and “possibly crimes against humanity” by both Israel and Hamas. That the crimes allegedly committed by Hamas were intentional goes without saying — its rockets were purposefully and indiscriminately aimed at civilian targets.

The allegations of intentionality by Israel were based on the deaths of and injuries to civilians in situations where our fact-finding mission had no evidence on which to draw any other reasonable conclusion. While the investigations published by the Israeli military and recognized in the U.N. committee’s report have established the validity of some incidents that we investigated in cases involving individual soldiers, they also indicate that civilians were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy.

For example, the most serious attack the Goldstone Report focused on was the killing of some 29 members of the al-Simouni family in their home. The shelling of the home was apparently the consequence of an Israeli commander’s erroneous interpretation of a drone image, and an Israeli officer is under investigation for having ordered the attack. While the length of this investigation is frustrating, it appears that an appropriate process is underway, and I am confident that if the officer is found to have been negligent, Israel will respond accordingly. The purpose of these investigations, as I have always said, is to ensure accountability for improper actions, not to second-guess, with the benefit of hindsight, commanders making difficult battlefield decisions.

While I welcome Israel’s investigations into allegations, I share the concerns reflected in the McGowan Davis report that few of Israel’s inquiries have been concluded and believe that the proceedings should have been held in a public forum. Although the Israeli evidence that has emerged since publication of our report doesn’t negate the tragic loss of civilian life, I regret that our fact-finding mission did not have such evidence explaining the circumstances in which we said civilians in Gaza were targeted, because it probably would have influenced our findings about intentionality and war crimes.

Israel’s lack of cooperation with our investigation meant that we were not able to corroborate how many Gazans killed were civilians and how many were combatants. The Israeli military’s numbers have turned out to be similar to those recently furnished by Hamas (although Hamas may have reason to inflate the number of its combatants).

As I indicated from the very beginning, I would have welcomed Israel’s cooperation. The purpose of the Goldstone Report was never to prove a foregone conclusion against Israel. I insisted on changing the original mandate adopted by the Human Rights Council, which was skewed against Israel. I have always been clear that Israel, like any other sovereign nation, has the right and obligation to defend itself and its citizens against attacks from abroad and within. Something that has not been recognized often enough is the fact that our report marked the first time illegal acts of terrorism from Hamas were being investigated and condemned by the United Nations. I had hoped that our inquiry into all aspects of the Gaza conflict would begin a new era of evenhandedness at the U.N. Human Rights Council, whose history of bias against Israel cannot be doubted.

Some have charged that the process we followed did not live up to judicial standards. To be clear: Our mission was in no way a judicial or even quasi-judicial proceeding. We did not investigate criminal conduct on the part of any individual in Israel, Gaza or the West Bank. We made our recommendations based on the record before us, which unfortunately did not include any evidence provided by the Israeli government. Indeed, our main recommendation was for each party to investigate, transparently and in good faith, the incidents referred to in our report. McGowan Davis has found that Israel has done this to a significant degree; Hamas has done nothing.

Some have suggested that it was absurd to expect Hamas, an organization that has a policy to destroy the state of Israel, to investigate what we said were serious war crimes. It was my hope, even if unrealistic, that Hamas would do so, especially if Israel conducted its own investigations. At minimum I hoped that in the face of a clear finding that its members were committing serious war crimes, Hamas would curtail its attacks. Sadly, that has not been the case. Hundreds more rockets and mortar rounds have been directed at civilian targets in southern Israel. That comparatively few Israelis have been killed by the unlawful rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza in no way minimizes the criminality. The U.N. Human Rights Council should condemn these heinous acts in the strongest terms.

In the end, asking Hamas to investigate may have been a mistaken enterprise. So, too, the Human Rights Council should condemn the inexcusable and cold-blooded recent slaughter of a young Israeli couple and three of their small children in their beds.

I continue to believe in the cause of establishing and applying international law to protracted and deadly conflicts. Our report has led to numerous “lessons learned” and policy changes, including the adoption of new Israel Defense Forces procedures for protecting civilians in cases of urban warfare and limiting the use of white phosphorus in civilian areas. The Palestinian Authority established an independent inquiry into our allegations of human rights abuses — assassinations, torture and illegal detentions — perpetrated by Fatah in the West Bank, especially against members of Hamas. Most of those allegations were confirmed by this inquiry. Regrettably, there has been no effort by Hamas in Gaza to investigate the allegations of its war crimes and possible crimes against humanity.

Simply put, the laws of armed conflict apply no less to non-state actors such as Hamas than they do to national armies. Ensuring that non-state actors respect these principles, and are investigated when they fail to do so, is one of the most significant challenges facing the law of armed conflict. Only if all parties to armed conflicts are held to these standards will we be able to protect civilians who, through no choice of their own, are caught up in war.

Israel – Hamas fires mortars on Israeli farmers – married couple injured – complaint filed with UN (filed right in to the trash)

March 19, 2011

Unbelievable!

Hamas AIMS at civilians.  They claim responsibility?  They have NO shame.

They fire specifically on civilians.

This is NOT terrorist attacking.  Mortars don’t come from terrorists.  Thats not really logical.  Governments and people with access to government supplies of defense are those who are doing this.  Hamas wants to have an official seat in Egyptian politics.  This is not TERRORISTS.  These are now GOVERNMENT sponsored!

Civilian areas in southern Israel were heavily shelled by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza on Saturday morning, when more than 50 mortars were fired at the regional councils of Sha’ar Hanegev, Eshkol and Sdot Hanegev.

Two Israelis sustained light injuries by shrapnel and were transferred to Soroka Hospital inBeersheba.

Hamas’s armed wing, the Izzadin Kassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for a dozen of the mortars fired.

The IDF responded to the barrage of mortars with tank shells and helicopter attacks. Six Palestinians were reportedly injured in the strikes.

Following the attacks, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman instructed diplomats in New York tolodge a complaint with the United Nations over the mortar barrage.

One building sustained extensive damage in the Eshkol Regional Council although a majority of the projectiles landed in open areas, local officials reported.

The regional council is inhabited predominantly by farmers, and has been the target of Palestinian shelling for several years.

Eyal Brandeis, a kibbutz secretary in the Eshkol Regional Council, and the head of a local emergency response team, told The Jerusalem Post that the injured were a married couple who had been attempting to seek cover in a safe zone – a room reinforced with concrete to protect from projectiles.

“It happened just as they entered the room. The couple were responding to instructions we sent out on cell phone text messages calling on all residents to seek shelter. They ran to the room, and shrapnel went through the window just before they could close it,” Brandeis said.

The man suffered shrapnel injuries to his back, while the woman was injured in her hand, Brandeis added. The couple received medical attention on the spot before being evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva for further treatment.

“We are used to sporadic rocket and mortar fire, but this was not the daily show we are used to,” Brandais said, referring to the high number of mortars fired at his community on Saturday. “Luckily, we escaped with few injuries. We’ll have to get through this,” he added.

Southern communities cannot be alerted to mortars by the Color Red rocket alert system and have developed their own cell phone text messaging alert system. “When we heard the high number of explosions across the area, we knew this was not an ordinary attack,” he said.

Ronit Minaker, a spokeswoman for the Eshkol Regional Council, said residents had been ordered to stay indoors for the duration of the morning. “People were compliant with the safety instructions,” she said.

“We’re not used to this kind of massive fire. But we have experienced it before, and we know how to respond,” Minaker added.

“Our residents expect the government to do everything it can to end this. They also expect the government to construct safe rooms in the many communities that still lack them,” she said.

Local authorities said on Saturday that they were in the midst of a legal campaign aimed at forcing the government to deploy the Iron Dome anti-rocket and anti-mortar shield.

Officials are petitioning the Supreme Court to order the state to deploy the shield to protect communities situated at least 4.5 kilometers away from the border and beyond. The system is unable to neutralize projectiles fired at communities up to 4.5 kilometers from the border.

The Supreme Court has ordered the state to reply to the petition within 30 days.
