Supreme Court rules that alleged child molester Rabbi AVROHOM MONDROWITZ (member of the Gur Hasidic Jewish sect) could not be extradited to the U.S. to stand trial. (He had fled from the US in 1984 to avoid arrest, after being charged with sodomising four boys in Brooklyn, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney's office. Since then the number of complaintants against him has risen to 100. In 2007 he was arrested in Jerusalem for possession of child-pornography, but had the charges dismissed).

5: In Haifa, Israel – HEDVA EYAL, of feminist organization Woman to Woman, reports that there appears to be a race based policy of preventing pregnancies among Ethiopian Jewish women by using the controversial contraceptive Depo Provera on them (apart from side effects of nausea and fatigue, Depo Provera is also known to decrease bone density, especially among dark-skinned women, which can lead to osteoporosis in later life). EYAL states – “The unspoken policy is that only children who are white and Ashkenazi are wanted in Israel.”
 
YALI
HASHASH, a researcher at Haifa University, said attempts to restrict Ethiopian women’s fertility echoed practices used against Jewish women who immigrated to Israel from such Arab countries as Iraq, Yemen and Morocco in the state’s early years, in the 1950s and 1960s.
 
RUTH
SINAI, an Israeli social affairs reporter for Haaretz newspaper, writes that recently the discrimination faced by the country’s 120,000 Ethiopians reflected in particular “doubts on the part of the country’s religious establishment about their Jewishness”. Ethiopian Jews are reported to face widespread discrimination in jobs, housing and education in Israel.

Tuesday 19: In the Al Bustan Rotana hotel, Dubai, UAE – Eleven foreign nationals, traveling on fake European Union passports, murder MAHMOUD AL-MABHOUH of HAMAS in his hotel room. These were traveling under false identities as Melvyn Mildiner, Stephen Hodes, Paul Keeley, Jonathon Graha, James Clarke and Michael Barney on British passports, along with three on fake Irish passports, including a woman, an Michael Bodenheimer German passport, and a fake French passport as Peter Elvinger. The group are suspected of being an Israeli assassination squad working for its Mossad foreign secret service.

An additional fine of 7,000 NIS is imposed on the Palestinian family by the Israeli District Court to cover costs incurred by the prosecution; and they are also required to pay 1,000 NIS a month in order to retain ownership of the other half of their home.
Pentagon, Washington, USA – A team of experts assembled by General David Petraeus tells Admiral MIKE MULLEN, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that
     • Arab leaders were losing faith in America’s commitment to an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal;

Im Tirtzu Fascism
In Israel – The Jewish fascist organisation Im Tirtzu, chaired by RONEN SHOVAL, and supported by Marcus Brothers Textiles in the US (NY 10018), begins a vicious smear campaign in universities, colleges and schools against the New Israel Fund which supports humanitarian organisations such as those which dare to challenge unethical actions against civilians by Israel's security forces. The targeted New Israel Fund supports organisations such as Adalah, Breaking the Silence, B'Tselem, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, Yesh Din, and the Israeli branch of Physicians for Human Rights. (See: April 18).
Im Tirtzu has received funding from such US Christian Zionists as John Hagee.

Monday 1: In Jerusalem, Israel – Israel's Defence Force denies that white phosphorous had been used during the war on Gaza, or that Gaza Division Commander Brig. Gen. Eyal Eisenberg and Givati Brigade Commander Col. Ilan Malka been subjected to disciplinary action by GOC Southern Command Maj. Gen. Yoav Gallant in that regard.
But the Israeli government has issued an official report to the United Nations (in response to its Goldstone Report) informing that a brigadier general and another officer with the rank of colonel endangered human life during its Gaza campaign by reckless use of artillery shelling in residential areas, including in the direction of a compound run by UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Gaza destroyed by white phosphorous shells. The said officers have only had a reprimand entered in their military record according to Israeli military spokesman MARK REGEV.
The BBC reports that a doctor at Gaza city's main hospital has told Britain's BBC that he treated hundreds of Palestinian civilians for phosphorus burns during Israel's military offensive.

Thursday 4: In New York – The UN Secretary General BAN KI-MOON announces that he is uncertain whether Israel and Hamas have complied with demands for investigations to be carried out into the Gaza war in terms of the credibility of what either side has submitted: "No determination can be made on the implementation of the (UN) resolution by the parties concerned".
Wednesday 10: In America – The Centre for Constitutional Rights files petitions to several international bodies regarding the action of the Israeli government and the Simon Weisenthal Centre on behalf of descendants of those buried in a cemetery on top of which a "Museum of Tolerance" is currently being built on top of the ancient Muslim burial ground in Jerusalem.

A number of Palestinians lost their homes when these were demolished by Israeli security forces. The ICRC provided emergency aid to some 380 people in the form of basic household, shelter and hygiene items, with the aim of tiding them over the first couple of weeks after the destruction of their houses.
The report adds that about 1,200 members of the Palestinian security services in the West Bank learned about human rights norms applicable to law enforcement, and especially pertaining to detention, during 55 ICRC-organized presentations on Humanitarian Law.
 
   
Thursday 18: In Lyon, France – INTERPOL issues a Red Notice for 11 suspects including photographs to assist in investigation into the Dubai assassination of a Hamas leader in UAE, January 16 (a Red Notice is international circulation of a national warrant of arrest with a view to extradition). The chief of police in Dubai had announced that he is 99% sure that the crime was carried out by Israel's Mossad. This identity theft (of which Israel's Mossad has been accused of previously), involving seven Israelis with dual nationality, is a serious crime which may lead to legal action.
Friday 19: In Washington, USA – US Congressman BRIAN BAIRD proposes:
"I call for the United States to break the Gaza blockade, provide immediate humanitarian aid, and urge Special Envoy Mitchell to visit Gaza. In the past year I have been to Gaza three times and was the first US Government official to visit Gaza after the Israeli Cast Lead operation. I recently visited Gaza for two days to assess aid shipments and humanitarian conditions.
These are the facts:
There is an Israeli blockade around Gaza, on land and along the coast. This blockade was established so that contraband weapons and equipment used for rockets to shell Israel will not enter Gaza. While there are food stuffs entering Gaza, the shipments are tightly controlled and items such as tomato paste and pasta are sometimes restricted by the Israelis. Palestinians cannot rebuild their homes, their schools, or their hospitals because they cannot import the cement needed to complete the projects. They cannot build sewage systems and prevent 55 million metric meters of sewage flow into the Mediterranean because the Israelis limit the amount of construction materials into Gaza.
A tunnel system has developed in South Gaza which circumvents the Israeli blockade. This system is creating a new power base in the society which is based on criminal activity and not the rule of law. Hamas is reaping the benefits and is becoming more powerful. President Obama’s June 2009 Cairo address, Secretary of State Clinton’s numerous statements, and the international community’s promises have all pledged to help the Palestinians. What I have concluded on my recent visit is that those pledges have not materialized and the Palestinian people have little hope for the future. One year after the bombing stopped, and five years after the wall was erected around Gaza, the people have little hope in the future. This lack of hope will eventually foment into radicalization. Radicalization will breed terrorists which will threaten the security of not only Israel but also the United States. We need to reverse this spiral of despair.
Here is what I propose:
Special envoy Mitchell should visit Gaza to determine first hand humanitarian needs. The blockade should be circumvented by the United States; much like we did when we circumvented the Berlin Blockade. We would accomplish this using roll-on/off ships supplying the needed material for Palestinians to rebuild their society. We must find a just and lasting peace not only with words, but actions. This will provide the people of Gaza hope and fulfill the commitment made by President Obama."
Sunday 21: Near Nablus, West Bank, Palestine – Several dozen right-wing Israeli settlers throw stones at Palestinian cars on the Nablus-Jenin road, shattering several windshields and wounding a Palestinian doctor. (The rock throwing took place in the same area where settlers shot and injured a teenage boy working on his family's land earlier this month).
Tuesday 23: In Jerusalem, Israel – TZIPI LIVNI (born: Tzipora Malka Livni, married to Naftali Shpitzer, two sons), of Israel's Kadima Party and the parliamentary opposition leader, praises the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last month. LIVNI was a member of Mossad and stationed in Paris during Mossad assassinations in that city in the 1980s.
In Dubai, UAE – The UAE’s Foreign Ministry summons the ambassadors of all four EU nations whose documents were used in the assassination of a Hamas commander in January. ANWAR GARGASH, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, says his nation is –
“deeply concerned by the fact that passports of close allies, whose nationals enjoy preferential visa waivers, were illegally used to commit this crime”.
Wednesday 24: In Dubai, UAE – Police announce 15 further suspects in the January murder of a Hamas commander, including four on Australian passports, bring the number to 26. The credit cards used by 14 of the suspects to pay for hotel rooms and pay for air travel were issued by Meta Bank in the USA.

the USA – The family of young US activist RACHEL CORRIE, run over twice by an Israeli military bulldozer (according to eye-witnesses) during a protest in Gaza in 2003 (as she attempted to prevent home demolition of a Palestinian pharmacist, while wearing her florescent jacket), will sue Israel over her violent death in Rafah (See: March 16, 2003).
CORRIE's family will travel to Israel for the trial which is due to start on March 10. The Palestinian doctor who pronounced CORRIE dead has been summoned by the court but has not yet been given a permit by Israel to leave blockaded Gaza. (On Tuesday 28 August, 2012, Israel's Haifa District Court rejects any IDF culpability).

  In
California, USA – MOSAB HASSAN YOUSEF (son of Hamas' co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef) reveals that he had been the main informant from 1996 within Hamas for Israel's Shin Bet (internal secret service organization) against Hamas for its cruelty. (Information he supplied had led to the arrests of some of the most wanted men by Israeli forces, including Marwan Barghouti, a Fatah leader often tipped as a potential president who was convicted of masterminding terrorist attacks, and one of Hamas’ top bomb-makers Abdullah Barghouti, who is no relation of the jailed Fatah chief).
YOUSEF was baptized as a Christian in about 2003 after reading the Bible. YOUSEF’s former Israeli handler, known as Captain LOAI, praises the resolve of his agent, whose codename ('Green Prince') derived from the colour of Islam – and Hamas’ banner and from his exalted position within an organization that regularly kills those suspected of collaborating with Israel. Shin Bet's Captain LOAI states:
"So many people owe him their life and don't even know it. The amazing thing is that none of his actions were done for money. He did things he believed in. He wanted to save lives. His grasp of intelligence matters was just as good as ours — the ideas, the insights. One insight of his was worth 1,000 hours of thought by top experts."
 
   
Thursday 25: In Hebron, West Bank, Palestine – Palestinians commemorate the massacre of 29 Palestinian worshippers by American-born Jew BARUCH KAPPEL GOLDSTEIN on February 25, 1994, and wounding of 150 (at that time Israel imposed a two-week curfew on the 120,000 Palestinian residents of Hebron, while the 400 Jewish settlers remained free to move around).
Goldstein is buried across from the Meir Kahane Memorial Park in Kiryat Arba, a Jewish settlement adjacent to Hebron. The park is named in memory of Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the Israeli fascist political party Kach, a group classified by the United States and Israeli governments as a terrorist organization. Goldstein was a long-time devotee of Kahane and member of the Jewish Defense League (JDL).
The suspicion, that the State of Israel's decision to renovate the religious sites (the Cave of the Patriarchs and its associated Mosque in occupied Hebron) is a ruse to terminate Palestinian access, has inflamed the commemoration into a violent protest against Israeli occupation.

No, they become heroes of hellfire, and they are leading towards hellfire" and that "There is no place for any martyrdom and their act is never, ever to be considered jihad."
In Washington, USA – In a media interview, US Congressman for the Washington's 3rd District BRIAN BAIRD describes the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the West Bank as deplorable and that it demands immediate attention. He states further –
“There has been this attitude that if anyone 'sides with' any issue on the Palestinian side, or criticizes any conduct of Israel, that you are somehow anti-Israel or even worse, anti-Semitic, or somehow disloyal to your own country. Nothing could be further from the truth. ...In the case of Gaza we [USA] could bring immediate relief to citizens without asking Israeli permission, ...We just roll the ships up, take the aid to the people who most need it and show them that we care about them and get real tangible quality of life improvements in the process without empowering extremists on either side.”

'Christianity' Perverted
Florida, USA – 'Christian' radio host, president of Faith2action, and virulent anti-OBAMA campaigner, JANET PORTER, calls on Christians to send yellow roses to Israel's Prime Minister NETANYAHU, each bouquet costing a symbolic price of $19.48*, in unconditional support of the State of Israel in its conflict with the Palestinian people. To date the Prime Minister’s Office has not accepted the flowers, being careful to avoid anything that implies disrespect for President Obama at such a sensitive time, and showing more insight than PORTER.
*Based on the myth that the political declaration of independence in 1948 fulfilled the prophecy of 'a nation born in a day' in Isa.66:8 – which really refers to Israel's repentance when Christ returns (Zech.12-14), after the precondition of Rom.11:25.

(See: Friday 9).
Wednesday 7: In Haifa, Israel – District Court Judge AMIR TOUBI rules that Israel's El Al airlines must compensate two Arab Israelis some NIS 30,000, for humiliating them during security checks in a New York airport simply because they were Arab. El Al states that it has no interest in running such checks for itself or other companies, and had asked the state to relieve it of this duty.
Friday 9: In Israel – The head of Israel's internal secret service agency Shin Bet announces a partial lifting of the gag order of the KAMM-BLAU investigation in a media briefing for senior editors and defence correspondents, and alleges that 2,000 classified documents are involved.

Monday 12 at night: Near Mihmas, Palestine – 300 olive trees of Palestinian farmers are uprooted, probably by Jewish settlers of the nearby illegal Zionist outpost of Migron. Similar attacks occured twice in the past (May 2008, October 2009), but the Yesh Din human rights organization informs that very few investigations of the uprooting of Palestinian trees have ever resulted in indictments.
Olive Groves attacked for
third year in succession.
   
Wednesday 14: In New York – At the international Nuclear Security Summit, Israel resists calls to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel currently has an estimated nuclear arsenal of atomic bombs in excess of 400 (according to retired US Army Colonel Warner D. Farr, M.D) or 200 (according to Modechai Vanunu) as well as more powerful hydrogen bombs, with deliver ability by intercontinental ballistic missile, aircraft, and submarine. More than enough to obliterate the Middle East.
Thursday 15: In South Africa – The South African Zionist Federation (SAZF under AVROM KRENGE) and the Beth Hamedrash Hagadol in Sandton, Johannesburg, are reported to have reached an agreement with Judge Goldstone's family under which the eminent judge who chaired the United Nations' Goldstone Comission will not be permitted to attend his grandson's bar mitzvah synagogue service next month. An agreement with the family, that Goldstone would not be in attendance at the synagogue service, was reached after negotiations between the SAZF and the Sandton Shul, where the event is due to take place.
Judge Goldstone has graciously agreed "in the interests of my grandson, I've decided not to attend the ceremony at the synagogue." (See: Friday 23).

In Israel – The Rishon Letzion Magistrate's Court lifts its gag order on the identity of the 'senior official' suspected of taking bribes in the Jerusalem Holyland corruption case, revealing the suspect to be former Israel prime minister EHUD OLMERT (who served as mayor of Jerusalem from 1993-2003) is already standing trial in three unrelated corruption cases. In this new case, Olmert is suspected of taking at least NIS 3.5 million in bribes in exchange for furthering development of the Holyland luxury housing project in Jerusalem. (See Friday 16 in Israel).
Attorney URI MESSER, a close friend of Olmert's, allegedly served as the main conduit for the bribes, with Olmert's former bureau chief, SHULA ZAKEN, serving as a secondary conduit.
In Jordan – King ABDULLAH says that Israel and the Arab world can not rely on the United States to create the momentum for a return to Israel-Palestine peace talks:
"We managed to get an extension of the Arab peace proposal, which terminates in July," he said. "There will be a committee meeting of Arab countries in July, and for us as moderate countries, we're going to be challenged by everybody else. ...Nothing has happened; Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not interested in peace, so why keep the Arab peace proposal on the table? ...If we hit the summer and there's no active [peace] process, there's a very good chance for conflict [war], and nobody wins when it comes to that."
Friday 16: In Regensburg, Germany – Ultraconservative British Roman Catholic Bishop RICHARD WILLIAMSON is found guilty of denying the Jewish Holocaust and of incitement for saying in a 2008 interview with Swedish television that the Nazi gas chambers had never existed and that "only 200,000 to 300,000 Jews" had been killed by the Nazis. The court orders the 70-year-old Bishop to pay a fine of 10,000 euros ($13,544). The Roman Catholic bishop was barred by his order, the Society of St. Pius X, from attending court proceedings or making statements to the media. Denying the Holocaust is a criminal offense in Germany.
In Israel – The Petah Tikva District Court rejects an appeal by former Jerusalem mayor URI LUPOLIANSKI, requesting to abort his five-day remand for involvement in the Holyland corruption case. The court upholds LUPOLIANSKI's detention on the grounds that Jerusalem's former mayor could try to disrupt the police investigation once out of custody.
Sunday 18: In Israel – Israel's extra-parliamentary Im Tirtzu fascist political organisation (which is supported by Christian Zionists such as John Hagee) distributes 15,000 pamphlets to synagogues in which the memorial prayer (Yizkor) for fallen soldiers on Memorial Day is altered to attack Israeli liberals and conscientious objectors.
 
Elie Wiesel with John Hagee
Elie Wiesel & John Hagee
In USA – A full-page advertisment by ELIE WIESEL in The International Herald Tribune, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal on Friday, and in The New York Times today, promotes Israel's political claim to East Jerusalem, which says that for him as a Jew,
"Jerusalem is above politics," and that "it is mentioned more than 600 times in Scripture – and not a single time in the Koran"
to assert an unconditional divine-right of the Jewish State of Israel.
Like JOHN HAGEE, his twisted use of Holy Scripture is
in total disregard of its conditional context and is also a perversion of the history of Israel. This is the wisdom of the same ELIE WIESEL who said of Jewish American fraudster Bernie Madoff in February 2009: "We thought he was God, we trusted everything in his hands."

Tuesday 20: In Israel – Newspaper Ha'aretz publishes an article by Shin-Bet-wanted investigative journalist URI BLAU from London explaining his position, which, among other, states –
"All the exposes in military or defense matters were vetted by military censors before publication, whether regarding the time Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi was a civilian and businessman or about the IDF's priorities in tracing Gilad Shalit. Or the story about how the IDF apparently violates the High Court of Justice's instructions regarding targeted assassinations. This story showed the readers authentic documents exposing the banality of executions with no trial.
"It is clear to me that these reports were not always pleasant to read – neither to their subjects nor to the reader. But it doesn't matter, because the journalist's job is not to please his reader, employer or leaders. It is to provide people with the best tools to judge and understand the goings-on around them. Every journalist knows that exposes cannot be released without evidence – but no Israeli journalist has known until now that such exposes could have him declared an enemy of the state and find himself in jail."

Yitzar, West Bank, Palestine – Jewish seminary (yeshiva) students and residents stone Israeli soldiers, injuring three, for trying to to prevent them entering a military restricted area. Yitzhar has been at the forefront of the Jewish settler movement's 'price tag' policy, which calls for violent retaliation for Israeli government restrictions on settler building in the West Bank. Residents have launched numerous attacks on Palestinians, including an arson attack on a mosque in December 2009.

In South Africa, Zapiro put it so aptly!
Friday 23: In the USA – Jewish progressive magazine Tikkun (editor: Rabbi MICHAEL LERNER) awards Judge RICHARD J GOLDSTONE (severely condemned by Israel and its zionist supporters) its annual Tikkun Award to be presented at the celebration of their 25th Anniversary in the Spring of 2011. Tikkun's editor states that for the Jewish community those who recognize that –
"Israel's treatment of Palestinians and its overt violations of human rights are not only a rejection of traditional Jewish values, but are also dangerous both to the survival of the State of Israel and to the future safety of the Jewish people living all around the world"
and that concerning Israel's lack of cooperation with Goldstone's fact-finding mission, the South African former jurist had –
"made clear that his charges were not substantiated, that had Israel been willing to cooperate with his UN sponsored investigation they might well have helped him eliminate elements of the report that were not true according to Israeli information."
Tikkun's Editor states: "the peace community both in Israel and around the world see Justice Goldstone as upholding the best ethical values of the Jewish community".

Judge Goldstone Honoured
In South Africa – The Jewish Board of Deputies' spokesperson WENDY KAHN now announces, concerning Judge Goldstone being prevented from attending his grandson's bar mitzvah:
“Judge Goldstone will be attending the bar mitzvah. There will be no protest and everybody wants to ensure that the child has a respectful bar mitzvah. That’s why all efforts have been made today to find some settlement and some way that the community can engage with the judge.”
The South African Jewish Board of Deputies has blamed the media for the impression that there had been any pressure whatsoever to prevent or discourage Judge Richard Goldstone from attending his grandson's bar mitzvah. (See: Thursday April 15, and June 10).
 
   
Saturday 24: In Amman, Jordan – Israel's Knesset member MOHAMMAD BARAKEH (محمد بركة‎; מוחמד ברכה), leader of Israel's Hadash Party (חד"ש), together with other Israeli-Arab leaders, depart for Libya to meet with its president Moammar Gadhafi at his invitation, using special entry permits issued by the Libyan authorities.
Sunday 25: In Malta – The government of Malta files an official complaint with the government of Israel over the unprovoked shooting of their 28-year-old national BIANCA ZAMMIT at a peaceful protest near the Al-Maghazi refugee camp in Deir Al-Balah, central Gaza, as she held a Palestinian flag on Saturday. ZAMMIT tells The Sunday Times of Malta:
"We were not doing anything illegal. I don't expect to be shot for holding a Palestinian flag or holding a camera, especially since we were chanting peaceful songs."
She is being treated at the Al-Aqsa hospital after having been shot in the leg.
 
Conflict in Israel's Parliament
Wednesday 28: In Israel – Israel's National Union fascist party Knesset Member MICHAEL BEN-ARI proposes that the six members of Israel's Knesset (parliament) described by him as traitors, who recently met with the president of Libya, should have their parliamentary immunity withdrawn as a consequence. The motion is supported by House Committee member YARIV LEVIN.
Knesset Member Dr. AHMED TIBI (Ra'am-Ta'al Party), one of the six, is forcibly removed from the Knesset speaker's podium by ushers as he is giving a speech about their Libya trip, after session chair CARMEL SHAMA informed him that his allotted speaking time is over.
 
   
In Gaza – Palestinian MO'AWEYA HASSANEIN is shot dead by Israel's security forces during a protest against Israel's confiscation of Palestinian farm land to create a border buffer zone.
 
Jordan Valley Jewish settlements, in the Palestinian West Bank, have usually been set up by government ministers, high-ranking state officials and the World Zionist Organization’s settlement department.
The Kibbutz Movement is now encouraging demobilized soldiers to join settlements in the Jordan Valley in a document entitled “Settlement in the Jordan Valley in areas under Israeli control”, stating that the initiative is aimed at supporting residents encouraged by the Israeli government to move to the settlements, and to shore up the Kibbutz Movement as a major player in future political decisions over the status of Palestine's Jordan Valley.
Early Thursday 29: Yitzhar, West Bank, Palestine – Thursday, Israeli Police raid Yitzhar, arresting seven residents suspected of involvement in attacks on Palestinians in implementation of the settlers' 'price-tag' policy. Four more residents are arrested soon after.
Later Thursday 29: In Hawara, West Bank, Palestine – Fascist Jews from their Yizthar settlement march through this neighbouring Palestinian village attacking homes to avenge a series of arrests by Israel Police earlier today. The group storms through to show their anger at the "police crusade against the settlers" after 11 residents of their settlement were detained according to settler spokesman AVRAHAM BINYAMIN. They surround a Palestinian home in and hurled rocks through windows. People inside the home called for help through a loudspeaker, and the settlers flee as Palestinians converged on the area.
In North Jordan Valley, West Bank – Jewish settlers from Maskiot begin harassment of local Bedouin herdsmen near Wad el Maleh, on private Palestinian land by setting up tent next to theirs.
When the Bedouin complain to the civil administration, the Jewish settlers in the tent and Palestinians on whose land it was pitched (who had lived on the site for over
40 years) are both handed decrees declaring the area a closed military zone, signed by brigade commander YOCHAI BEN-YISHAI. The IDF Spokesman's Office issued the following inaccurate response:
"The two tent encampments under discussion were erected last week. None of the parties involved had well-founded claims to the land. In order to separate the parties and out of concern that lives were in danger, the brigade commander issued a closed military area order – but only for a 50-meter radius surrounding the site and for a few hours. After the order was issued, they left the tents on their own, without the use of force."
The Palestinians have not returned to their land out of fear of the Jewish settlers.
Friday 30: West Bank, Palestine – It is reported that settlers of the same Jewish settlement of Yizthar have sent a letter to other Jewish settlements in the West Bank at Har Bracha, Itamar and Elon Moreh, calling on them to become active in fighting any freeze on Jewish settlement construction and that "on such days, in which the restrictions on the settlements are multiplying, the battle against them is of great importance." The letter to other Jewish settlements added "The recent clashes unfortunately escalated too far, and we are now conducting an internal investigation, so that if we have to deal with such events in the future, we will be able to do so in a more correct manner".

Friday 7: In Nevada, USA – Israeli pharmaceutical company TEVA (traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange; among the most widely held Israeli shares on NASDAQ; traded on Seaq International in London, and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange) is ordered to pay compensation of $356 million for causing Hepatitis C damage to a patient, concerning which more than forty similar claims against TEVA are still to be heard.
America's Federal Drug Administration agency (FDA) had tested and found contamination at the company's plant in July 2009 and informed TEVA. An official warning letter from the FDA to Teva Parenterals Medicines, Inc. in December 2009, contained such phrases as –
Responses lack sufficient corrective actions...
Failure to subject each lot of a component with potential for microbiological contamination... to microbiological tests before use...
Failure to thoroughly investigate any unexplained discrepancy or the failure of a batch or any of its components to meet any of its specifications... Your firm was unable to determine the cause of an out-of-trend level of bacterial endotoxin contamination found in three vials of finished product (Lot #(b)(4)) of Propofol Injectable Emulsion. No corrective action was taken in response to this finding at the time of manufacture, and your firm released the lot.
Your response, dated August 10, 2009, is inadequate because the corrective actions are not systemic.
Failure to test in-process materials for quality and purity as appropriate, at the commencement or completion of significant phases of the production process...
Failure to test, through appropriate laboratory testing, each batch of drug product required to be free of objectionable microorganisms...
TEVA's response is that it had changed the date of its 'yearly plant shutdown' from December to April, and that it intends to appeal against the court decision.

Tuesday 11: In Israel – The Jewish Sanhedrin writes to the author of this website in defence of the book Torat haMelech that the Commandments of Holy Scripture, such as 'Thou shalt not kill', are Jewish national laws and therefore apply only within a Jewish jurisdiction –
"Jewish law is the law meant to govern the Jewish people.  It applies to its citizens. If a Frenchman kills another Frenchman in France, this is not a crime by English law.  This does not mean that it is not a crime, or that it is condoned or permitted by English law.  It simply means that English law does not have jurisdiction over individuals who are not citizens.
This is true with Jewish law – as with any national law – crimes between citizens and non-citizens are handled by international treaties, extradition agreements, and sometimes by the other nations legal system.  These does not mean that any of these things are permitted, moral or condoned by one nation or another."
Quoted from a Re-established Sanhedrin's email to the author of this website, received May 11, 2010 8:50:58 AM.
Note the nationalist perspective that the Ten Commandments only apply to Jewish people.
   
Sunday 16: In West Bank, Palestine – American citizen, 81-year-old Jewish professor of Linguistics and Philosophy at the US Massachusetts Institute of Technology NOAM CHOMSKY (among the foremost academics in the world) is denied entry by Israel's military at the Allenby Bridge crossing from Jordan for having previously expressed criticism of Israel's policies (as reported by Chomsky to Channel 10 by telephone).
CHOMSKY was due to speak on Monday at Bir Zeit University in the Palestinian West Bank on American foreign policy.
(Chomsky last visited Israel and the West Bank in 1997 when he lectured at Ben-Gurion University and also at Birzeit University.)
(An Israeli Interior Ministry spokeswoman Sabine Haddad said officials were trying to get clearance from the Israel Defense Forces, but later admitted that it was their own officials who had denied him entry).
Tuesday 18: In spite of Israeli media reports that the Professor would now be allowed access, Professor CHOMSKY was unable to obtain an official guarantee of this and so will now hold his scheduled lecture at Birzeit University in West Bank by video conference from Amman. The lecture will also be broadcast live on Al Jazeera television. Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad says he –
"strongly condemns the decision of the occupation forces to prevent Chomsky from entering Palestinian land."

Friday 21: In Geneva, Switzerland – A group of 27 theologians, tourism activists and advocacy organizations, and Palestinian Christian activists and tour organizers, from 14 countries, call on Christian pilgrims to live their faith as they visit the Holy Land, going beyond homage of ancient sites to show concern for the Palestinian people living there whose lives are severely constricted by the Israeli occupation of their lands. The meeting further asked pilgrims to demonstrate solidarity with Palestinian Christians whose 2,000 year continuous presence in the land has been steadily diminishing as the hardships they face due to Israeli occupation lead them to emigrate.
 
   
Monday 24: In Canberra, Australia – The Australian government expells an official of the Israeli embassy for identity theft and passport falsification connected to the Dubai Mossad-murder in January this year.

Wednesday 26: In West Jerusalem – Israel's Supreme Court president condemns the failure of the Israeli government to enforce a court order to stop building a West Bank road on private Palestinian land between the Jewish settlements of Givat Hayovel and Eli, which prevents access by Palestinian residents in the village Krayot to 1,500 dunam (370 acres) of their agricultural land.
In talks with state lawyers, Supreme Court President DORIT BEINISCH gives the government 45 days to explain why illegal construction is continuing and justify damage to private property, and orders the state to back up its explanation with aerial photographs. The ruling comes in response to a petition by the human rights organization Yesh Din.
 
Mavi Maramara charity ship
Mavi Maramara before she was attacked by Israel's navy.

Israel's irresponsible self-righteous provocations against human rights again inspire hatred towards it and feed terrorism against Israel and its Western supporters around the world. 
Monday 31, 4.20 AM: International Waters, East Mediterranean – Israeli paratroopers from military helicopters hijack a ship of the charity convoy of international volunteers bringing medical and food aid to blockaded Gaza's 1.5 million inhabitants, after jamming all satellite-phone communication from the ship, killing nine (eight Turks and one American of Turkish nationality) and wounding forty-six others, nine seriously. It is reported that the dead Turkish American citizen FURKAN DOGAN, 19 years old, had one bullet in the chest and four bullets fired into his head from close range. Altogether, the flotilla had about 700 passengers from more than 40 countries, including 60 journalists.
The Israeli initial assault on the main passenger ship, the Mavi Marmara, was from 15 military boats using stun grenades, paintballs and rubber-cased steel bullets, which was repelled by the passengers with water hoses as they tried to form a defensive cordon to prevent Israel's soldiers from reaching the ship's wheelhouse. Next, military helicopters approached, hovering overhead to drop masked commandos onto the ship.
The Israel Defence Force later alleges that its heavily-armed commandos were attacked by the aid-volunteers (re-labeling them 'activists'), and were in a life-threatening situation wounding two seriously which required their deadly shooting of the aid-volunteers. Two members of the German parliament also traveled in the charity flotilla as aid volunteers as well as an Auschwitz survivor. Israel's government blames the organisers of the aid flotilla for the deaths of the charity volunteers. (See: Navy reserves officers' protest letter below)
Israel Navy attack charity flotilla
Israel's military attack one of the six charity ships in the Gaza flotilla.

Read Jamal Elshayya's eyewitness report

The 60 or so foreign journalists aboard the humanitarian flotilla heading for the Gaza Strip told how IDF soldiers, who arrested, detained and expelled them, seized all their equipment, documents and personal belongings. None of it has been returned so the soldiers can be considered guilty of theft, and many journalists have filed complaints. Israeli soldiers are rarely punished for their abuses.
However,

Freedom Flotilla Route
JAMAL ELSHAYYA, an al-Jazeera reporter on the Marmara with a clear view of the Israeli attack, reports that Israel's soldiers fired down on the protesters from the helicopters before an Israeli soldier had even set foot on the ship. A man next to him was shot through the top of his head, dying instantly. At least two other eyewitnesses confirm this account of the soldiers firing from above the ship before they landed on the Marmara's deck.
This report is confirmed by the ship's captain who adds that Israel's soldiers also fired gas-bombs from the helicopters (as well as their assault rifles) into the passengers on his ship before their soldiers dropped down onto the deck. This provoked retaliation against the soldiers.
Freedom Flotilla One Route
Note concerning international waters attack:
The principle of freedom of navigation is enshrined in international law, including in the Convention on the High Seas, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, and has attained the status of customary international law by which all states are bound. Under this principle, all states have the freedom to sail ships flying their flags on the high seas.
Israel's 'Apology'
In March 2013 (after departure from government after being indicted for fraud in December 2012 of Israel's foreign affairs/deputy prime minister Lieberman, and a visit of US President Obama), Israel's Prime Minister NETANYAHU visits Turkey and formally apologises for the killing of these Turkish human rights activists.
Sovereignty
over a ship is exclusive to the state whose flag the ship is flying. Any attempt to board the ship of another flag-state is therefore considered a breach of that state’s sovereignty.
Maritime blockades can not be imposed in international waters.
Contrary
to Israel’s assertions, maritime blockades must be restricted to ports or coastal areas under the enemy’s control, and may not be imposed in international waters. Israel’s attempt to impose and enforce its blockade in international waters is therefore illegal. Israel’s claim that it has a right to pursue a ship intending to breach its blockade from the time it begins its voyage, based on the so-called doctrine of 'continuous' voyage, is a minority position in international law. Israel’s reliance on this questionable doctrine does not justify its attack on a humanitarian flotilla and its infliction of so many casualties.

The video footage filmed by the volunteers was confiscated by Israel and the reports of eyewitnesses discredited as the lies of 'terrorists'.
(Later, Israel deports the charity aid volunteers but confiscates their passports and their personal luggage).

December, Wednesday 8.
Jerusalem – Israeli Border Policemen fire extended-range tear gas grenades into the faces of protestors, protesting the Israeli attack on the Marmara aid-ship, one of which strikes 21-year-old EMILY HENOCHOWICZ in the face, an art exchange student from New York, destroying her left eye and fracturing her face bones. The Border Police deny firing directly at the protestors, in spite of eyewitness testimony to the contrary.
(Attorney for the Henochowicz family, Michael Sfard states:
"According to testimony I have begun to receive, the firing was at close range and was directly aimed, and if this is correct, it is clearly a criminal act for which those involved must answer. My client and her family have authorized me to say that they demand that her unnecessary injury be fully investigated, and that we spare no effort to ensure that law enforcement authorities carry out their duty in this matter").

June In Norway
Two Norwegian labour unions enforce a two-week blockade banning Israeli ships and goods from entering Norwegian sea ports. This embargo is in protest to Israel’s blockade of Gaza, which prevented assistance and goods from reaching the Palestinians living there. The Norwegian government does not veto the unions’ action.

4: Warsaw airport, Poland – Polish authorities arrest a man named "Uri Brodsky" in his passport who is believed to be a high-level and experienced "facilitator" for the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad in Europe. A European warrant of arrest had been issued by Germany for the individual known as 'Brodsky' who had used fraudulent documents to obtain a German passport in the name of "Michael Bodenheimer", one of those apparently involved in the Dubai assassination in January. Evidence indicates that 'Brodsky' was involved in the logistics, providing paperwork, safe houses and other backup, for the Mossad execution squad.

Instead, the Rachel Corrie is emptied at Ashdod's port under Israeli military supervision, no weapons are found, but it carries 500 tons of cement for rebuilding bombed-out buildings and homes which Israel does not allow into Gaza.
 
GAZA reports:

Economic sabotage of Gaza
"Israel permits Gaza residents to receive small packets of margarine, considered a consumption item. Israel bans, however, the transfer of large buckets of margarine, because the buckets are designed for industrial use, rather than home consumption, meaning that they could be used to allow a local factory to produce biscuits – and thus engage in economic activity. Similarly, requests to permit empty cans into Gaza – intended for the preservation and marketing of Gaza-produced tomato paste – have been refused, but requests to transfer Israeli-made tomato paste are permitted."

response, the IDF spokesman states that the flotilla passengers' personal belongings had been loaded onto the Turkish planes on which they were flown out of the country, all magnetic media (of journalists) was confiscated for security reasons, the IDF is considering whether these items will be returned, and that if an Israeli Foreign Ministry and police inquiry leads to the suspicion that anyone has stolen Luppichini's credit card, the matter will be dealt with severely.
 
Sunday
6: In Israel – In a letter from Israeli Navy Reserves officers to Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, Israel's top Navy reserves officers denounce its commando raid on the Gaza-aid flotilla –
"First and foremost, we protest the fact that responsibility for the tragic results was immediately thrust onto the organizers of the flotilla. ...This demonstrates contempt for the responsibility that belongs principally to the hierarchy of commanders and those who approved the mission. This shows contempt for the values of professionalism, the purity of weapons and for human lives."
The Israeli Navy Reserves officers call on their government to allow an external probe of the Gaza flotilla tragedy.
 
Wednesday
9, 18.35: In New York, USA – Religious Orthodox (Bobover Hasidic) Jewish Millionaire businesman SHLOMO (Solomon) OBSTFELD (55) falls to his death from the 19th floor of his Essex House Manhattan apartment. The medical examiner calls it a suicide, but he leaves no note or will, and his family and close friends suspect it was murder of this warmhearted family-man, after a Jewish Rabbi who owed him money put a "pulsa dinura" death-curse on him before moving to Israel, and have accordingly hired a private investigator from the CMP Protective and Investigative Group.
OBSTFELD (of Central Park South investment firm LH Financial) was involved with billionaire MARTIN SCHLAFF whom Israeli police this week recommended be indicted for bribing Israel's then prime minister Ariel Sharon with $3million in 2002.
 
 
(In February 2000, Donna Lee H. Williams, Insurance Commissioner of the State of Delaware, as Receiver of National Heritage Life Insurance Company in liquidation had filed a civil action against SHLOMO OBSTFELD among others for insurance insolvency fraud.
Orthodox Jewish Rabbi SHOLAM WEISS who fled the US to Austria was convicted of 78 criminal charges in absentia).

Tuesday 15: In Dublin, Ireland – Irish Foreign Minister MICHEAL MARTIN announces the expulsion of a member of the Israeli Embassy diplomatic staff over the forging of Irish passports used in the Dubai assassination in January.
 
  In
Tel Aviv, Israel – Israeli cabinet minister ISAAC HERZOG (welfare and social services portfolio) states that the previous Israeli government had started the policy of banning economic resources as well as dangerous materials from Gaza as an all-encompassing embargo with the aim of the "economic collapse" of Gaza in a bid to bring Hamas to its knees and pressurize it to free the Israeli soldier held captive for the past four years. He states that, "to my regret" that had not happened even though the blockade has been in place for three years. Israel is therefore currently weighing a new formula of coercion.
Although Israel reduced its import blockade to weapons and 'dual use' materials such as cement, it continues to maintain it's export bloackade, unhindered by the rest of the world, thus continuing its ecomonic terrorism against the people of Gaza.

Tuesday 27, 4.30 AM: In the Negev – About 1500 police officers carrying firearms and stun grenades, followed by a special patrol unit, helicopter, mounted horsemen and bulldozers, enter the El Araqib Bedouin village and begin demolishing everything in the village. The village has existed longer than the state of Israel. Its more than 300 Bedouin residents, mainly children, are forcefully removed from their village as they watch the Israeli police destroy their homes and property. This aggressive attempt to clear the village is part of an effort of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and Israel Land Authority (ILA) to claim historic Bedouin land to use it for forestation and future Jewish settlement.

August In South Africa –
After authority's discovery of the theft of blue-prints of Denel's long-range precision-guided 178mm missile (10,000 metre range) by Israel, Israel's espionage agency Mossad writes to South Africa's National Intelligence Agency (NIA) –
"Further to your request regarding the Macopa Missile Affair [sic. Mokopa, meaning Black Mamba in the Setswana language], please note that our service has no authority to carry out investigations on Israeli territory. ... However, In light of the strong cooperation between our services, and our sincere desire to assist you, we have examined ways in which we can, at least, return the missile plans to you [after copying, of course]. ... Since, according to the information you relayed to us, an Israeli citizen, Mr Yitzhak Talia [sic], is involved in this affair, we would appreciate receiving confirmation from the competent authority that the Israeli citizen will not be prosecuted or involved in legal issues in South Africa concerning this affair, before we relay the plans to you. ... The information we will relay to you about this matter is classified intelligence and therefore should not be used in legal proceedings."
Danie Steenkamp (Senior Technician at Denel) is later sentenced to five years in prison, and Anthony Viljoen (managing director of a company that worked with Denel), five-year suspended sentence and a fine of 500,000 Rand ($45,000) for turning states-evidence. Johan Grundling (who had travelled to Israel in the early stages of Steenkamp and Viljoen's attempts to sell the missile plans) had committed suicide in March 2010 when police searched his home.

10: In Hebron – Israeli soldiers seal three Palestinian-owned shops in the center of Hebron as part of the Israeli authorities' separation policy to protect Jewish settlements erected there. This entails physical and legal segregation between the Jewish settlers and the Palestinian majority, as well as extensive and harsh restrictions on movement of Palestinians and systematic refusal to enforce law and order on Jewish settlers who attack Palestinians. This policy has devastated the economy of the city center and causes many Palestinians to consequently vacate their homes in the area.

Israel develops the criminal Stuxnet computer worm to attack Iran's nuclear enrichment program at Natanz and propagates it world-wide to cover all eventualities. The virus jumps from infected system to another until it eventually finds the Siemens Step7 software which drives the centrifuges used in Iran's nuclear program. In the Seimens centrifuges, it accelerates them until they burn out and destroy their systems, while still sending signals to the control panel hat the systems are functioning properly, so, while their systems are burning out, no one knows they are under attack.
Sunday 29: In Israel – Leading Sephardic Jewish ultra-Orthodox party rabbi, OVADIA YOSEF (a founder of Israel's Shas party), in his weekly Shabbat sermon describes Palestinians as evil, bitter enemies of Israel which should perish.

Tuesday 5: Israel – A report by the Tzomet Institute in a study "Illicit sex for the sake of national security" gives a ruling by Jewish Rabbi ARIEL SHVAT justifying it morally on the grounds that Queen Esther slept with persian king Xerxes [ignoring the fact that he was her husband] and that Yael slept with Sisera [which has no source but a Jewish tradition, and she was not even Jewish].
The issue has arisen in connection with female Israeli Mossad agents being used for that purpose. Schvat's ruling was praised by Tzomet's director, Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, who added that "women employees of the Mossad are probably not going to come consult with a rabbi" before their missions.
Wednesday 6: In Beit Fajjar, West Bank (near Bethlehem) – Six Jewish rabbis express solidarity with local Muslims in their visit to the local mosque burnt apparently by extremist Jewish settlers.

They report that Israelis are being trained to spread disinformation and to try to create conflicts among different religious, racial, and ethnic groups if it would benefit Israel. Some of the seminars encouraged the workers to spread disinformation on the internet and to attempt to recruit free (unpaid) labor. For example, many of these bloggers have been trained to attempt to make friends on the internet by pretending that they share an interest in a favorite sports team or movie, or that they went to the same school, but will ultimately try to recruit persons to attack other groups or individuals that Israel thinks is against its national interests (e.g., 'Muslims,' 'Russians,' 'Germans,' 'Latinos,' 'United Nations representatives' and 'human rights groups'). Others have been trained to personally attack, stalk, and harass anyone personally that does not agree with Israel's policies. (See YouTube video of seminar)

Before that, our demands must be met ...Our nine brothers martyred on the Mavi Marmara (by Israeli commandos in the Gaza aid convoy) must be accounted for. First an apology must be made and compensation must be paid."
 
Israel subsidises over 100 Jewish settlements in the Palestinian West Bank in defiance of international law. Another 100+ are “illegal outposts” even under Israeli law.

Neighbours and acquaintances of whoever sells or rents an apartment to non-Jews in areas where Jews live must warn him, keep their distance from him, and refrain from business with him, according to the rabbis. (18 rabbis from Safed in northern Israel issued a similar ruling in September).
Israel's President SHIMON PERES states in reaction –
"The rabbis' letter creates a fundamental moral crisis in Israel which affects the definition of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. ...Every person is created in God's image – that is one of the main tenets of Judaism, and it forms the basis for democracy. ...The state of Israel is composed of Jewish citizens and non-Jewish citizens, and we all have the same rights, which include the right to practice any religion".

'Lehava' Neonazi Mentality

secret imprisonment on undisclosed charges (arrested February 2010) is eventually uncovered in 2013 by Australian media which prompts Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu to call a meeting of "top Israeli journalists" on Wednesday 13 February 2013 to prevent details of Zygier's case from being made public.

It says that America should use its veto if the state was declared unilaterally, without Israel's consent. (See Friday 24).
The official bias

Sunday 19: In New York – Human Rights Watch releases a 166-page report detailing "Israeli policies in the West Bank harshly discriminate against Palestinian residents, depriving them of basic necessities while providing lavish amenities for Jewish settlements". Carroll Bogert, spokeswoman for the group, says Israel is carrying out "systematic discrimination merely because of race, ethnicity and national origin, depriving them of electricity, water, schools and access to roads". About 2.4 million Palestinians live in the West Bank alongside more than 400,000 Jewish settlers.
In Europe – Israeli MOSHE HAREL is reported to be on the run from Interpol on charges of human-organ trafficking.

Wednesday 22: In Vienna, Austria – ARIEL MUZICANT, President of Austria's Jewish community, writes to Prime Minister NETANYAHU of Israel, to complain of the actions of Likud MK [MP] Deputy Minister AYOB KARA in meeting with Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the Neo-Nazi FPO party, and heaping praise on him at a joint press conference.
"The FPO has "called for the abolishment of anti-Nazi legislation," and its representatives have "made anti-Semitic remarks and praised the Nazi regime, denied the Holocaust or invited and promoted notorious Holocaust deniers," he writes. As a result, the Jewish community has fought the party – "which was and is one of our worst adversaries" – for years. "...We feel betrayed and are outraged about this behavior of Deputy Minister Kara. I consider this a shame for the State of Israel and a betrayal of the murdered 65,000 Austrian Jews and the 6 million martyrs of the Shoa."

Sunday 26: In Israel – Israel's Foreign Minister AVIGDOR LIEBERMAN tells a conference of Israel's ambassadors –
"Even if we offered the Palestinians Tel Aviv and a retreat to the 1947 borders, they would find a reason not to sign a peace agreement. ...The PA has an illegitimate government that isn't holding elections. We must not reach a [final-status] agreement with them," and that "In the existing political circumstances, it's not possible to present a diplomatic plan for a final-status agreement, because the coalition [Israel's government] will simply no longer exist."

In Johannesburg, South Africa – WENDY MACHANIK is brought to court by the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) after she allegedly "misappropriated" R25,209,000 over the period March 2007 to end February 2010, and possibly before that period, from her agency's trust account. ('Darryl Sklar & Associates' were auditors, and Bruce Bernstein the company's chief financial officer). A report by Pasco Risk Management, commissioned by the EAAB, points to her "alleged boyfriend", EYAL MARINBERG, and an accountant as conspirators. His profile listed him as the agent for several upmarket properties, including developments in Tel Aviv. The Pasco Risk Management report alleges that MACHANIK:
  • Falsified amounts in the company's trust account;
  • Insisted that clients deposit monies into this trust account, rather than the company's attorney's trust account;
  • Intended to replenish the company's trust account from a R20-million deal with construction giant Group 5, a deal that never happened; and
  • Owes South Africa's Revenue Service R7-million in unpaid taxes.
MARINBERG allegedly often travelled to Angola for their "money-laundering scheme".
 
In the UK
The Arab Organization for Human Rights issues a report on human rights violations in the territory of the Palestinian Authority highlighting the practice of torture in prisons.
It appears that the Palestinian security services have been using torture on a wide and systematic basis for several years using, inter-alia, the following techniques: shabh (hanging) of all kinds, beating with cables, pulling out nails, suspension from the ceiling, flogging, kicking, swearing and cursing, electric shocks, sexual harassment and the threat of rape.
At least six people have been killed while undergoing torture in Palestinian Authority centres:
1.  Shadi Shaheen Ramallah
2.  Majd Barghouti Ramallah
3.  Mohammed al-Haj    Jenin
4.  Kamal Abu Taima Hebron
5.  Haitham Amro Hebron
6.  Fadi Hamadna Nablus
Many ex-detainees have permanent disabilities. Mass arrests have taken place on political grounds. (Click to down download PDF copy of the report)
