…from Gush Shalom, Israel

[ Editor’s Note: The Zionists are antagonizing the West Bank Palestinians once again. This smells of an attempt to motivate a retaliation attack which would then be followed by more extensive army aggression.

The US, as usual, will remain silent. Biden has his hands full, and our ‘Israeli friends’ know this, so they will exploit the opening, knowing that with his polling in the 46% range he does not want to piss them off.

So much for the power of the US presidency when it comes to human rights, where Israelis hold a veto card. The Holocausted have become the Holocausters, and make no apologies for it.

I did not have time to check the Israeli news sites for what’s up with this bulldozing of the Islamic cemetery, other than trolling for revenge suicide bombers so some faction of the Israeli political structure can benefit from it somehow.

A mother cries for her son’s grave

Turkey’s armed force are in their jumpoff positions in Syria and on the Kurdish border. If Erdogan pulls the trigger, he will use his entire army to avoid a defeat. I think Russia is not interested in interceding on that scale.

We read today that Putin says his military has 2000 drones. Would he want to risk losing 500 of them for the Syrians and Kurds?

Turkey won the last Syrian conflict by using a lot of drones, and quickly, knocking out as much of the Syrian army as it could, with no real Russian air defense stepping in after two of the systems given to the Syrians went up in smoke.

The Gulf State Arabs have given Israel a big bear hug. I would not be surprised by the announcement of a joint defense treaty among them to top off a tumultuous 2021Jim W. Dean ]

Settler-colonists and soldiers in common action facing Palestinian villagers near Susya, Saturday, October 30; 2021

South Hebron Hills

Large army forces accompanied with heavy equipment went on a destruction rampage on Monday October 25, in the Massafer Yatta area. After destroying and confiscating the protest tent at Mufaqara, they proceeded to Khalat A-Dab’a, destroyed water pipes and roads, and finished up by destroying the route of the main road of Massafer Yatta.

Four villages containing about 300 persons were left without any connection to water sources.

On Thursday, settler-colonists stole olives from a grove closed to Israelis by official edict at Susya, and were chased away by activists. The same day, Bir Al Eid villagers discovered that settler-colonists had blocked the road to their village by pouring out truckloads of dirt at three spots along the way.

On Saturday activists came to help the villagers clear this criminal blockage, but army and police prevented them from doing so by declaring the area a ‘closed military zone’.

Masked men from the settler-colony ‘Susya’ charged into Palestinian Susya on Saturday and slung stones towards a house in the village. Army personnel came to protect them and enabled them to return to the settler-colony unhampered.

That day, activists came out to document new criminal construction in an area nearby called ‘Flag Hill’ and found two fancy dwellings connected to water and electricity, plus a well-tended garden. The settler-colonists came out of the houses and attacked the activists.

An army force arriving there declared the place a ‘closed military zone’, enforcing this against the activists only, while about o30 settler-colonists were gathered at the site. They began to march towards Palestinian Susya, but the army prevented this action.

Close to 4 a.m. on Saturday, settler-colonists broke into the dwelling of a family close to ‘Avigail’ outpost and demanded of the Palestinians to leave. The occupation forces prevented Palestinians and activists from reaching the place by declaring it a ‘closed military zone’, prevented action – but allowed the settler-colonists to remain there.

In Atariya, on Saturday, a protest was held by Palestinian inhabitants and activists against raising a settler-colonist water tower on Palestinian land, and Israeli army forces prevented this protest by declaring the place a ‘closed military zone’. Activists accompanied Palestinian grazing at Atariya, unhampered.

 Palestinian Jordan Valley

Activists accompanied Palestinian shepherds in the northern and southern parts of the valley most days this week. At Khalat Makhoul activists also spent the night in the middle of the week in order to protect villagers from their attacking settler-colonist neighbors.

At Hamra activists managed to prevent the violent settler-colonist from the nearby outpost to fly his drone over the Palestinian flocks on Monday, and on other days of the week their presence prevented harassments by this settler-colonist and his workers.

At Auja grazing took place accompanied by activists unhampered most days this week, but on Saturday soldiers came and, at the settler-colonists’ bidding, tried to chase away the shepherds by falsely claiming a ‘closed military zone’.

At a school in the Hamam Al Malih community in the northern part of the Valley, on Monday the occupation forces destroyed a pergola that shaded a playground and two room under construction that were planned to serve as a clinic for the schoolchildren. On Wednesday they confiscated from the Humsa community – which they completely demolished last summer – anything that might serve for construction.

At Farisiya a Palestinian shepherd documented a stone-throwing attack against his flock by a settler-colonist on Saturday.

Jerusalem

On Monday, October 25, the Jerusalem Municipality and Israeli Nature and Parks Authority continued works in the Muslim cemetery Al Yusufiya. A bereaved Palestinian mother tried to cling to her son’s gravestone and was forcibly removed. In documentation photos, gravestones appear smashed with ‘hill youth’ thugs acting as ‘municipality employees’. Works there continued the next day despite protests by relatives of the deceased persons buried there.

The same day, Monday, a demonstration was held opposite the Supreme Court protesting the robbery of Silwan homes from their Palestinian owners by settler-colonist associations.

On Tuesday, Israeli Minister of Homeland Security Omer Bar-Lev signed an order forbidding a cultural event to be held for children and adults in the East Jerusalem Catholic Church compound, claiming that the event is linked to the Palestinian Authority.

The event, already taking place, was halted. That same day, it was reported that the occupation police closed children’s activities at the sports club in Silwan claiming that the activity was linked to the Palestinian Authority.

The police violently attacked demonstrators once again at their weekly protest vigil in Sheikh Jarrah on Friday, grabbed Palestine flags and pushed an elderly woman to the ground. The right-wing thugs who have been showing up there lately violently attacked a Palestinian activist who tried to complain to police and was arrested (and released that same night). The thug who attacked him was neither detained nor questioned.

On Tuesday, October 26, the occupation authorities demolished a structure in Wadi Joz.

The weekly protest in Sheikh Jarrah takes place every Friday. We will meet at the Sheikh Jarrah Garden, Nablus Road and Dahlmann St. at 4 p.m.

Throughout the West Bank

Activists of Rabbis for Human Rights helping farmers of Awarta village with their olive harvest on Monday, October 25, were attacked with teargas by Jewish terrorists from the ‘Itamar’ settler-colony who arrived there on foot and on mini-tractors. One of the activists needed medical attention. The activists reported that this attack took place in full view of Israeli soldiers.

See Hagar Sheizaf’s report in Haaretz.

On Monday, the Israeli army prevented an olive harvest in the groves of Bourin village (Nablus district) near the outpost ‘Givat Ronen’. Activists and Palestinian farmers returned there on the morrow and completed the harvest unhampered. The same Tuesday, October 26, masked Jewish terrorists pepper-sprayed employees of the Red Cross during a tour they held between Bourin and the violent outpost of ‘Yitzhar’.

On Wednesday, October 27, the ‘Supreme Planning Council’ at Beit El approved all plans for constructing 3,000 dwellings in the settler-colonies.

Weekly demonstrations protesting Palestinian land theft were held on Friday at Bourin (Nablus district) and Beit Dajan (Salfit district).

**

Hadash (left-wing Arab-Jewish political party) activists demonstrated on Tuesday opposite the Israeli army HQ in Tel Aviv, in protest of Defense Minsiter Gantz’s declaration, denouncing 6 Palestinian human rights organizations as ‘terrorist organizations’, and the deepening of the occupation under the aegis of the Meretz (left-wing) and Ra’am (Arab) parties.

  1. I arrived in the United States of America on the 28th of February 1961! Volunteered for DRAFT within a year and was at Fort Jackson, SC. on my 20th Birthday on April 11, 1962! Anniversaries! 65 years ago today, on the 4th of November 1956, I was hiding behind the fence, in the ‘hazel bush’ in our backyard, watching the Soviet tanks/armored cars, moving toward the center of Budapest, our house was located on the BUDA side of the City, on the Budaorsi Ut(Street), to trample the Fight for Freedom, of that Christian nation! Erno GERO, a Hungarian JEW called in the Soviet Horde! Jews are the movers and Shakers of the WORLD! Under the “Flag of Marxist Bolshevik-Communism” what I call the JEWISH PLAGUE, they are responsible for the deaths of some 200 million people in the 20th century! Talk about, Holocaust? They done a WORLD HOLOCAUST! Under the ‘Flag of Zionism’ they are still at it!

  2. Zionism is EVIL! Zionism is the CURSE of Mankind! The ‘Land of the Free’ has morphed into the PLANTATION, owned, controlled, Used and Abused, by the Zionist Apartheid Talmudic-Supremacist TERROR State of Israel, whose AGENTS, the Enemies within like AIPAC have turned the US CONGRESS into a BROTHEL, and the Senators/Representatives are not serving the American Public, but special Interests, like the ISRAEL LOBBY, they dictate, the US Foreign and DOMESTIC Policies! America is ENSLAVED! There is not ONE PATRIOT anywhere, in our Federal Government or in Our CONGRESS! America is going DOWN the Ash Heap of History!

  3. No, you can not just think of Christian Zionist and US political parties. The biggest SUPPORTERS of this illegitimate entity are Arabs followed by the non Arab Muslim state bar a handful of Resistance Groupe led by Iran. Most of the Muslim countries do trade with it without ever letting anyone know about it. Turkey more then recognises it as it is 7th largest trader and once even gave its military ( terrorist to be honest as the entity became the so called israel with Terrorist acts even if supported by Europe Parmenant among them UK ) facilities to train its ground and air force on its grounds as Azerbijan is doing now. Pakistan has been via London,trading quietly with it after the assasination of its founding fathers. It has even bought military vehicles from the entity. Presnt Ragime in and Pakistan military are very much inclined to recognise the entity. It was not long ago when Nothingyashoo was visiting Oman an aircraft of the entity flew 1600 K M from Arabian Sea to Islamabad, spent 10 hours and then safely flew back t Palestine.. Who was in that Aircraf? Why did it spent 10 hours in Islamabad? Why did military allow it to fly all that distance over Pakistan and then safely fly out? This all proves that Pakistan is now firmly in Zionist hands. Rest of the Muslim countries have the diplomatic and other relationships with it .

  4. Impunity, thy name is Israel. Sadly, US so-called Christian Zionists and most of the Republican Party are fully on board with everything the Ashkenazim are doing in Palestine. I have to keep saying this over and over…

    • Before 9/11 turned many formally neutral Americans against Arabs and “Muslims;”
      “Israel’s” deplorable treatment of the Palestinians by wouldn’t be getting the blind eye treatment.
      Talk about ironic!

    • There never was a “formally neutral Americans against Arabs and Muslims”. US population is too uneducated and stupid to know who’s who. And 9/11 was a carte blanche for Pentagon to go fight “Islamia” without any restraint.

    • Maybe I wasn’t clear Newt.
      I was talking about people who never considered Arabs or Palestinians in any regard whatsoever, when I referred to “formally neutral Americans.”
      Those who held no opinion one way or another before the 9/11 false-flag perpetrated by Israeli operatives, became immediately on board with all things anti-Arab and anti-Islamic.
      I’m sure there must have been a few.
