Palestinian Minister says Israel conducts medical experiments on prisoners

LOL.  Via HumanRightsVoices:

Palestinian Minister Says Israel Conducts Medical Experiments on Prisoners

Issa Qaraqe, Palestinian Minister for Prisoners Affairs, speaks at the “UN Roundtable on Legal Aspects of the Question of Palestine” at the UN Office in Geneva

Issa Qaraqe, Palestinian Minister for Prisoners’ Affairs represented the Palestinian Authority. His slanderous comments accused Israel of torturing and raping little children and subjecting Palestinian detainees to medical experiments. Violence, he declared, was the Palestinian right and intention. Here are some of his words (UN translator, original in Arabic):

    “I convey the greetings of families and prisoners in Israeli prisons and camps…. Israeli authorities since 1967 have detained …children, women, sick people, and disabled…UN resolutions have confirmed the right and legality of resistance of people … and supported national liberation movements to liberate from foreign occupation and control… Israel committed …war crimes and crimes against humanity against these prisoners… Israel …is using cruel and barbaric methods of torture, including on children from the moment of detention. Detention is done under the pretext of the fight against terrorism… The youngest child was only 8 years old… Some of them are subjected to sexual assaults… Thousands of medical experiments are conducted by Israeli pharmaceuticals against Palestinian detainees… The Israeli court system is inherently unjust.”

When he finished the Chairman of the UN Committee Diallo thanked him “for representing state of Palestine during this meeting.”

Thereafter the UN closed the meeting to members of the public. The discussions of the roundtable, with the exception of the opening and closing sessions, are open only to members of the Committee and the UN staff which services their obscene activities.

Muslim Clerics Call to Destroy Egypt’s Great Pyramids

Waiting for the outrage from liberals, Jew-haters, the UN, NGOs, guardians of historical antiquity, Barack Hussein Obama, the Brits, Egyptians, non-Islamists, the Presbyterian Church, the Methodist Church, palestiniasts, Hanan Ashwari, the Human Rights Council, Israeli leftists, Jewish frauds, Mahmoud Abbas, museum curators, Egyptologists, Samantha Power, the Vatican, and others, but nope, I am not hearing a single peep.  Via FrontPageMag:

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax.    Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

PLO ambassador says Palestinian state should be free of Jews

More despicable Jew-hatred from Muslims who continue to dictate public policy while ignoring its own 100 year long war against the Jews. Arabs have been killing Jews since the late 1800′s when there was no occupation.   Recall the Hebron riots and massace of Jews in 1929, as just one example.  And don’t even try to suggest  that “uprooting of palestinians” from their homes crap was a reason for anything.  Arabs chose war in 1948.  Arabs suffer the consequences.  Jews don’t deserve this treatment from Muslims just because Arabs were too stupid to accept a state in 1948.  Via USAToday:

The Palestine Liberation Organization’s ambassador to the United States said Tuesday that any future Palestinian state it seeks with help from the United Nations and the United States should be free of Jews.

“After the experience of the last 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated,” Maen Areikat, the PLO ambassador, said during a meeting with reporters, in response to a question about the rights of minorities in a Palestine of the future.

Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other faith since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was judenrein, or cleansed of Jews, said Elliott Abrams, a former U.S. National Security Council official.

NY subway ads calling for ending US aid to Israel

It’s just beyond belief.  Via Pamela Geller and Caroline Glick:

NY subway ads calling for ending US aid to Israel?

Anti-Israel NY subway ad

According to JTA (hat tip Arve in Norway) this ad is set to be posted in 18 NY subway stations in Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx and Brooklyn starting later this month. Seems to me that New Yorkers who support Israel should be able to speak to the City of New York, the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the New York Transit Authority who all have a hand in running the New York subway and have the campaign cancelled. My friend, the indefatigable Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs was able to get similar anti-Israel campaigns blocked in places like Seattle and has shown that cancelling anti-Israel propaganda campaigns is eminently doable.
Happy hunting!
UPDATE: Here’s an email I received from Morris Massel with information on how to cancel the ad campaign:

An anti-Israel group, www.twopeoplesonefuture.org, has just placed the attached ad calling for the end of aid to Israel in 18 subways stations in NYC.  They claim to target Israel only because “Israel is the strong party, Israel is the Occupying Power and Israel is the only party that can actually end the Occupation and pave the way for a just peace.”  IT IS NOT ABOUT PEACE.  IT IS ANOTHER THINLY VEILED ATTACK ON ISRAEL.  For example, certain of the sponsors of this ad campaign actively support Israel boycotts and general Arab solidarity.  This is not about promoting peace; it is about attacking Israel.

How can you help?  

1. The ad placement is handled by CBS Outdoor.  Please send an email to emmanuela.chanoine@cbsoutdoor.com to register your concern about this ad campaign.

2. Email the Mayor.

3.  Call the MTA at 212-878-7000 and, in response to the prompts, press 1, 3, * and then either 2 for the press office and/or 4 for corporate affairs.  Leave a message.  You can also email them at http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php

4. GET THE WORD OUT.  Forward this email to your friends and family.  If we do not act to protect Israel, no one will.

For your ease, a draft email is below:I have just learned of the anti-Israel ad campaign that has been launched in 18 NYC subway stations by twopeoplesonefuture.org. I am contacting you to express my strong disapproval with this ad campaign.  The campaign is supported by the anti-Israel lobby, whose agenda is not peace but the destruction of the State of Israel.  Second, it unfairly penalizes Israel for defending itself.  New York City should not allow these types of ads to be run in our Transit System

 

New Reports Emerge on Ransacking of U.S. Embassy in Tripoli

Via Washington Post:

Looted, ransacked and burned, the U.S. Embassy complex in Tripoli stands in ruins, a testament to the violence unleashed in the name of Moammar Gaddafi’s regime and its disregard of international law.

Throughout the embassy compound, everything that could have been broken has been. Whole floors were doused in gasoline and burned.

The embassy was ransacked on May 1, as were those of Britain and Italy, in response to the death of Gaddafi’s son Saif in a NATO airstrike.

Witnesses said 20 people arrived at the U.S. Embassy complex about 2:30 a.m. in the Toyota Tundras favored by the Libyan security forces and that some were in army uniforms. They used a shotgun or heavy machine gun to blast open the compound’s steel doors.

In the subsequent hours, busloads of cheering and chanting Gaddafi supporters showed up in what looked like an organized excursion. By morning, smoke was rising from several buildings in the embassy compound.

At Least Six Israelis Killed, 25 Injured in Terrorist Attacks Near Egyptian Border

Via IDF:

[Muslim] Terrorists carried out three terrorist attacks near the southern Israeli city of Eilat on Thursday (August 18).

In an incident that occurred around noon, terrorists opened fire on an Egged bus that was travelling from Be’er Sheva to Eilat on Highway 12 along the Israel-Egypt border. Nine people were wounded.

Magen David Adom paramedics were called to the scene and injured persons were transported to Yoseftal Hospital in Eilat.

In another incident, an explosive device exploded next to an IDF patrol, wounding several people.

All incidents occurred approximately 20 kilometers north of Eilat.

IDF forces pursued the terrorists that carried out the attacks and exchanged fire with them.

Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz arrived in the area following the attacks.

IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Yoav (Poly) Mordechai said that the attacks were part of a “grave and complex event” in which civilians and soldiers were injured.

The IDF calls on the public to avoid the area where the attacks occurred and allow security and rescue forces to carry out their work.

Highways 10 and 12 are closed until further notice.

The Kerem Shalom Crossing and the Erez Crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip were closed following the attacks.

Attorneys to UN: Halt unilateral Palestinian statehood

Laughably, Arabs are using the authority of the UN to force an illegal unilateral declaration of palestinian statehood, but the same Arabs do not recognize the authority of the UN to create the state of Israel.

The legal basis for the establishment of the state of Israel by the League of Nations in 1922 affirmed its presence on territories that included Judea, Samaria, and what is now east Jerusalem.

The unilateral proclamation of palestinian statehood would be a violation of all past agreements between Israel and the palestinians, and would also contravene UN Resolutions 242 and 338.

Of most importance, according to Article 80 of the UN Charter, rights granted to all states or people by already existing international instruments – including those adopted by the League of Nations – remain valid.

To think that the Islamic War Machine will cease its aggression towards Israel merely with a declaration of palestinian statehood, is naive and cowardly.

More than anything, an illegal unilateral declaration of palestinian statehood  will lead to mass demonstrations, violence, and war.

Get ready for war.  The palestinian kleptocracy is on the way.  Via JPost:

An international group of some 60 lawyers, including former Foreign Ministry legal adviser Alan Baker, has appealed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to prevent a General Assembly resolution on unilateral Palestinian statehood, based on the pre-1967 lines. The attorneys noted that such a resolution would be a violation of all past agreements between Israel and the Palestinians, and would also contravene UN Resolutions 242 and 338.

They noted that “the legal basis for the establishment of the State of Israel was the resolution unanimously adopted by the League of Nations in 1922, affirming the establishment of a national home for the Jewish People in the historical area of the Land of Israel. This included the areas of Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem, and close Jewish settlement throughout.”

As a result, the “650,000 Jews [who] presently reside in the areas of Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, reside there legitimately.”

Additionally, attempts to unilaterally change the status of the territory would be a breach of the 1995 Israeli-Palestinian agreement. The Olso Accords did not limit settlement activity, they added.

The Expulsion of the Jews from Muslim Countries, 1920-1970: A History of Ongoing Cruelty and Discrimination

Via JCPA:

* Between 1920 and 1970, 900,000 Jews were expelled from Arab and other Muslim countries. The 1940s were a turning point in this tragedy; of those expelled, 600,000 settled in the new state of Israel, and 300,000 in France and the United States. Today, they and their descendents form the majority of the French Jewish community and a large part of Israel’s population.

*In the countries that expelled Jews, a combination of six legal, economic, and political measures aimed at isolating Jews in society was instituted: denationalization; legal discrimination; isolation and sequestration; economic despoilment; socioeconomic discrimination; and pogroms or similar acts.

*It is the custom to say that Zionism was responsible for this development. However, the region’s anti-Semitism would have developed even without the rise of the state of Israel because of Arab-Islamic nationalism, which resulted in xenophobia.

*The fact that these events have been obscured has served in the campaign to delegitimize Israel, and therefore to a large extent, the same population that suffered this oppression. The fate of Palestinian refugees, their proclaimed innocence, and the injustice they endured form the main thrust of this delegitimization. The Jewish refugees have suffered more than the Palestinian refugees and undergone greater spoliations. However, they became citizens of the countries of refuge, especially Israel and France, while Palestinians were ostracized from the Arab nations.

Palestinians Exploiting Settlement Freeze Issue

Via NY Jewish Week:

# When the Palestinians say the resumption of talks requires Israeli action, this is where we disagree. The only action needed by both sides to come to the negotiating table is a short car ride. Both sides have their concerns. Solutions to these concerns can only be made when Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas are in the same room.

# Israel’s settlement freeze was a one-time confidence-building measure to facilitate the Palestinians entering into direct talks. The Palestinians were livid with the freeze, calling it unacceptable. Apparently, the settlement freeze has magically gained importance right when it can be used as a political football.

# Despite the constant headlines of “settlements as obstacles to peace,” history presents a pretty strong rebuttal. Peace was achieved with Egypt and Jordan, and the Oslo Accords were signed with the Palestinians, without a moratorium on settlement construction.

# We essentially extended the olive branch, and for nine months, rather than grasping it, the Palestinians have sharpened that branch so they can accuse us of pointing a spear at them.

# If the Palestinians do believe that settlements are the key obstacle to peace, they need to sit with us and discuss what we need to do, together. As our prime minister said, the resolution of any and all issues, whether they are settlements, borders or water, will be decided as a result of peace talks, not imposed as a precondition.

# Since the 2003 Roadmap Agreement, no new Jewish settlements have been constructed. The narrative that Israelis are engaged in “manifest destiny” on the West Bank is bogus.

Egypt Blocks Jordanian Aid Convoy to Gaza

Where’s the outrage at Egypt? Aren’t palestinians supposedly starving in spite of the dearth of photographs portraying bloated bellies and sunken eye sockets? You see, there is no outrage because the world is afflicted with palestinianphilia.  And it seems to be incurable. Via Jordan Times:

The Jordanian Professional Associations Council on Thursday said Egypt has refused to allow their Gaza-bound humanitarian aid convoy to enter its territory. Activists had originally intended to travel from Aqaba to the Egyptian port of Nuweibeh before heading by land to the Rafah border crossing with Gaza to express their solidarity with Gazans. The convoy of 150 activists and 25 trucks left Amman on Tuesday.
