Wall Art

leave a comment »

A portrait of the late Palestinian president Yaser Arafat.

These art pieces  drawn over the Israeli discrimination wall in Palestine are drawn by Palestinians and foreign supporters of Palestinian cause. However  Israel calls it a security “fence”. It is built on Palestinian occupied land and cuts through Palestinian villages, farms and families. The International Court of Justice ruled that the wall is illegal but the US still finances it and it is still on the land. The Wall must Fall.

 

Israel cutting Palestinian water!

with one comment

Israel is denying Palestinians access to clean, safe water while allowing unlimited supplies to Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank!

Swimming pools, well-watered lawns and large irrigated farms in Israeli settlements… stand in contrast next to Palestinian villages whose inhabitants struggle even to meet their domestic water needs

between 180,000 and 200,000 Palestinians in West Bank rural communities have no access to running water

Israel’s daily water consumption per capita is four times higher than the 20 liters per capita consumed in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip (by Palestinians)

Israel, controls much of the West Bank’s supplies, and uses more than 80% of water drawn!

Israel’s war on Gaza early this year left water reservoirs, wells, sewage networks and pumping stations severely damaged.

The water situation in Gaza had now reached a “crisis point,” with 90 to 95 percent of the water supply contaminated and unfit for human consumption.

Palestinians suffer severely of water shortage

Since hundreds of years, and till some years ago, all these lands, and water resources, were totally Palestinian, but everything was taken from them through unfair wars and massacres over the years…

How to “Make” a Zebra?!

with 2 comments

Mohammed Al Bargouthi, A zoo owner in Gaza, came up with a way to add a new specie of animals to his zoo, Farah Land zoo in Gaza, without needing any animals!

The Zebra, is the animal he wants to add to his zoo. Instead of importing them at a cost of 40,000$ and moving them to Gaza through Gaza tunnels, he decided to make them. He got two donkeys, painted them with white painting, and then drew black stripes on them, and that’s it. A great looking Zebra’s ready for children amusement:)

Real ZebraThis is a real Zebra

fony zebra1This is Farah Land’s Zebra, the only of it’s kind in the world:)

Mohammed Al Bargouthi said that the transformation operation didn’t succeed from the first time, and they had to repeat it again.

He also said that Farah Land zoo used to own Zebras among their animal groups. But All the  Zebras died. They were among the victims that were killed during the recent Israeli attack on Gaza strip.

Under Israeli siege on Gaza strip, Gaza children were deprived from many of happy things normal children enjoy. Even if these animals look fake, but they succeeded to enter the joy to the heart of children, and to draw a smile on their faces.

This is a new form of resistance, and copyrights are reserved to Gaza.

Israel holding hundreds of Palestinians illegally

leave a comment »

Her brother is one of hundreds being detained by Israeli authorities without charge...

Israel is violating international law by detaining hundreds of Palestinians, some of them for years without charge or trial.

Israel holds hundreds of Palestinians in prolonged detention based on undisclosed suspicions, without informing them what these suspicions are, without giving them an opportunity to defend themselves, and without notifying them when they will be released

The prisoners find it “impossible” to challenge their detention because the evidence against them is often kept secret by the Israeli judges who review the cases!

UK activists push for Barak arrest

with 2 comments

Ehud Barak - Israel's defence minister

A group of Palestinian families is seeking the arrest of Ehud Barak, Israel’s defence minister, during his two-day trip to Britain.

Lawyers acting for 16 Palestinians, who accuse Barak of war crimes for atrocities committed during the Gaza war, sought on Tuesday to have their case heard at a magistrates court in central London.

The families have accused Barak of committing war crimes including the assassination of a senior Palestinian minister and unlawful killing of civilians during the Gaza war at the beginning of this year.

More than 1,400 Palestinians, at least one-third of them women and children, were killed in Israel’s December-January offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Happened Before !

In 2005, human rights groups criticised the British authorities for failing to arrest Doron Almog, an Israeli army general for whom an arrest warrant for alleged war crimes had been issued, when his aircraft landed in London.

Almog stayed on the aeroplane at Heathrow airport after apparently being informed that he could face arrest. He was allowed to return to Israel !
