Israeli Forces Raid Cremisan Monastery In Bethlehem

“Witnesses reported that Israeli forces raided the Cremisan Monastery in Bethlehem late on Sunday [July 28]. The witnesses told the Palestinian News and Info Agency (WAFA) that Israeli soldiers broke into the monastery, held the people who were inside, and inspected their personal documents.

 

The raid was condemned as a violation of the sanctity of places of worship, and a violation of international law. Under Human Rights Law, Israel must “ensure that religious places, sites, shrines and symbols are fully respected and protected”, and “take additional measures in cases where they are vulnerable to desecration or destruction.”

The Cremisan Valley area has been a hotbed of resistance against Israel’s annexation wall, because the Salesian Sisters of Cremisan Convent and the Palestinians of Beit Jala will soon be the annexation wall’s latest victims. The planned route of the annexation wall will separate more than 50 Palestinian families of Beit Jala from their agricultural land, and they will have only limited access to the land via an agricultural gate. Furthermore, the wall will separate the Salesian Convent from 75% of its land. The convent’s land, along with the monastery, will be on the Israeli side, whereas the convent and primary school will be on the Palestinian side.

To fight the planned annexation of their land, the Palestinians of Beit Jala and the Salesian Sisters of Cremisan launched a seven-year-long legal appeal that was supported by the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, William Hague, and the archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols. However, on April 26, 2013, the Special Appeals Committee of the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court ruled in favour of the planned route of the annexation wall. The annexation wall is illegal according to international law and the fourth Geneva Convention, to which Israel is a signatory.

 According to the United Nations, 85% of the annexation wall is built illegally inside the West Bank, thereby annexing roughly 10% of its land.”

Did You Know…?

1. That Israel’s first PM, David Ben Gurion while still living in his native Polish town of Plonsk was part of a gang of thugs who extorted money from wealthy Jews.

 

2. Chaim Weizmann, Israel’s first president considered 1.5 million Jews who survived the Nazis as nothing more than “human dust”

 

3. Golda Meir “raised the possibility of preventing handicapped and sick Polish Jews from immigrating to Israel”

 

4. Ariel Sharon is a war criminal for his part in the Sabra and Shatilla massacres.

 

5. Jewish terrorist group the Stern gang made attempts to collaborate with the Nazis.

 

6. The Stern gang, under the leadership of Yitzhak Shamir, assassinated Folke Bernadotte. Bernadotte had helped Jews escape the Nazi death camps. Zionists also assassinated his character after his death by lying that Bernadotte was ‘Anti Semitic’.

 

7. A memorial ceremony attended by Israeli politicians and government officials is held each year at Stern’s grave in the Nahalat Yitzhak cemetery in Tel Aviv. In 1978, a postage stamp was issued in his honor.

In 1981 the town of Kochav Yair (Yair’s Star) was founded and named after Stern’s nickname.

 

8. Israel devised plan Dalet and started ethnically cleansing Palestinian villages before Israel had declared its independence.

 

9. Arabs from the village of Huj hid and protected the Jewish Haganah from a British dragnet. It has even been reported that the villagers executed their fellow Arabs who they suspected of collaborating with the British. Zionists repaid the Arabs by ethnically cleansing them from their village. The village is now a Jewish town called Sderot.

 

10. In 1935 when most of the rest of the world was boycotting Nazi Germany the WZO/Jewish agency were forming partnerships with the Third Reich.

 

11. “A pact was signed by Dr. Rudolph Kastner of the Jewish Agency Rescue Committee and Nazi exterminator Adolph Eichmann in 1944 allowing 600 prominent Jews to leave in exchange for Zionist silence on the fate of the remainder.”

 

12. In the 1950s Zionists carried out false flag terrorist attacks [Operation Susannah. AKA. The Lavon Affair] inside Egypt. Israel denied this for a long time then in 2005 Israel honoured the surviving terrorists.

 

13. Yasser Arafat recognized Israel’s right to exist.

 

14. That during operation ‘Cast Lead’ Rabbis and extremists gave messages of support to the idf such as,

 

“Baruch the Man,” which praises Baruch Goldstein, who massacred unarmed Palestinians in Hebron. It calls on “soldiers of Israel to spare your lives and the lives of your friends and not to show concern for a population that surrounds us and harms us. We call on you … to function according to the law ‘kill the one who comes to kill you.’ As for the population, it is not innocent … We call on you to ignore any strange doctrines and orders that confuse the logical way of fighting the enemy.”

 

15. Shlomo Ben-Ami, Israel’s Foreign Minister and key negotiator at Camp David had this to say about the mythical Zionist ‘generous offer’,

 

“Camp David was not the missed opportunity for the Palestinians, and if I were a Palestinian I would have rejected Camp David, as well.”

 

16. That Zionists often spread the Hasbara story that Hamas carried out a ‘bloody coup’ against Fatah in Gaza when in fact the opposite is true…Backed and funded by the G.W.Bush administration.

 

Never believe a word that comes out of a Zionists mouth!

Lying For Zion

So the liars over at CfZ [Christians for Zion] are at it again with a ‘blog’ titled ‘What is Defined as Illegal?’ written by an anonymous ‘Administrator’

The blog goes on to lie about Israel’s claims to the OPTs [Occupied Palestinian Territories]

 

Here’s what they claim.

“It would appear that the EU totally discounts existing international legal agreements and prefers to interpret clauses in these agreements to suit its own agenda.”

Wrong. The EU are not making up their own “interpretations” to “suit its own agenda”. They, the EU, are following International law. The people who ARE making up their own interpretations are the Zionists.

 

They then go on about San Remo and the British mandate.

 

“a) The San Remo Treaty of 1920, in which the victors of the First World War parcelled out the remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire, created a geographical area called Palestine along both sides of the Jordan River. It is still valid today.

 

b) Article 6 of the Palestine Mandate signed by the League of Nations in 1922 stipulated ‘close Jewish settlement’ on the land west of the Jordan River. The river served as the boundary because that year the UK created a new Arab country, today known as Jordan, by unilaterally bestowing the land east of the river onto the Hashemite dynasty and thus giving some three quarters of Palestine away”

 

Anyone following this blog will know that the whole San Remo Chestnut was blown clean out the water in blogs written here. I won’t go over it again but here are the links.

https://christiansforzionwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/san-remo-according-to-christians-for-zion/

 

https://christiansforzionwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/israels-real-legitimacy/

 

Next they go on about the UN Charter,

 

“c) The 1945 UN Charter, Chapter XII, Article 80 explicitly says than nothing within it shall ‘alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which Members of the United Nations may respectively be parties’.”

 

Article 80 which they refer to has been dubbed the “Eretz Israel article” by Zionist propagandists. But let me let you into a little secret which the Zionists fail to comprehend. If the Zionist claim that San Remo is still applicable were true then under article 80 of the UN charter Israel in its present form is illegitimate and has been so since Israel declared her borders based on UNGA res.181 as Israel’s independence and declared borders go totally against article 80 of the UN charter. More astonishingly Chris Proudlove told us only days ago that Article 80 is no longer applicable and now as if by magic it has become applicable once again.

 

Next they get into a real tangle.

 

“d) the claim that the Israeli settlements breach Article 49 of the Geneva Convention does not apply to the settlements. Written in the shadow of the deportation of European Jews to their deaths in Nazi Europe, it prohibits

‘individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or that of any other country, occupied or not…The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occu pies.’

But none of the Israelis living beyond the Green Line have been transferred or deported, forcibly or not; they all chose voluntarily to live there. (The only force ever used against these residents was in fact when Israel forcibly transferred them from Gaza into Israel in 2005.)

 

Here’s the problem that Zionists have. They tell so many lies [as they have to in order to try and cover the theft of Palestinian land] that sooner or later some of those lies get them tangled up.

 

Here’s what Haaretz says,

 

Israel is trying to have its cake and eat it too. On the one hand, it did not annex the West Bank into its sovereign borders or apply Israeli civil law and administration there. Palestinian residents of the West Bank were not granted Israeli citizenship. Israel enacted military rule in the West Bank and operates by this authority. When, for example, Israel confiscates land for security purposes, it does so under the international laws of occupation (found in the Hague Conventions) that impart specific powers to military commanders in occupied territory. On the other hand, Israel claims that the Geneva Convention does not apply to the West Bank, so the restrictions included in the Geneva Convention do not apply. The result is that Israel sometimes acts in the territories as if they are part of its sovereign territory: establishing Israeli cities, communities and factories and applies Israeli law to Israeli citizens living in this territory. However, Israel simultaneously treats that West Bank as occupied territory, administering it under martial law, with the original inhabitants of the occupied territory, the Palestinians, not given the same status as Israeli citizens. While at the same time Palestinian inhabitants are not given the full rights of residents of an occupied territory, including the prohibitions preventing the occupying power from dispossessing them in favor of its own citizens. The Europeans are not willing to let grants they earmark for Israel to fund this policy.”

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/.premium-1.536887

And here’s what the Independent UN inquiry says,

“Since 1967, the Mission’s report notes, Israeli governments have openly led, directly participated in, and had full control of the planning, construction, development, consolidation and encouragement of settlements.

 “In compliance with Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, Israel must cease all settlement activities without preconditions,”

http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=44045#.UevlWuVQFwA

Oh my! Maybe the Zionists would like to convince us that they only build them because they look pretty and were never intended for Jewish only occupants…..

e) The Geneva Convention applies to actions carried out on the territory of a ‘High Contracting Party’ with a sovereign claim to that territory. But the areas in question ov er the ‘Green Line’ never belonged to any sovereign power.”

 

Israel has never LEGALLY annexed ANY of the territory “over the Green line” PERIOD!

 

Mike Fryer in another of his latest blogs goes on a rant about ‘Indoctrinating our young people’ yet he is indoctrinating his own young people into the cult of Zionism and is sending these young people out into the real world armed with lies…Odious doesn’t even come close to describing these people.

Peace, Propaganda And The Promised Land

Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Islamist Cleric Sentenced to 14 Years in Egypt After Burning Bible, Calling Christian Women Prostitutes

“An Islamic preacher known for his hate speeches against Coptic Christians was sentenced to 11 years in prison for tearing up and burning a Bible outside the U.S. Embassy during a protest against an anti-Islam film last year.

An Egyptian court in Cairo sentenced Ahmed Abdullah on Sunday for insulting religion and burning a Bible. He was also fined 3,000 Egyptian pounds, or $430.

Abdullah’s son was sentenced to eight years in prison and fined 2,000 Egyptian pounds, or $286 for his role in the burning.

Abdullah publicly burned a copy of the Bible as part of a protest against the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” on Sept. 11, 2012. The film was produced in the United States by an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian, and set off anti-American protests across the Muslim world. Abdullah also announced that he planned to send his grandson to urinate on the Bible.”
