by Khaled Alashqar, IPS News

GAZA CITY – “My child became blind and lost the ability to speak, his dad died and his three brothers are seriously wounded. He still has not been told about the loss of his dad,” says the mother of 7-year-old Mohamad Badran.

Mohamad is in hospital for treatment after being seriously injured in Israel shelling of Gaza. “My only way to communicate with him is by hugging him,” his mother adds. Continue reading Burning the Future of Gaza’s Children

Israel closes al-Aqsa to all visitors after the shooting of a right-wing rabbi

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Several months ago, Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah explicitly warned that the Jews would use ISIS’s continuing demolitions of mosques, Husseiniyas, churches and shrines in Iraq and Syria as an excuse — as well as a precedent — to carry out grave aggressions against Sanctified Al-Aqsa in occupied Al-Quds. Well, as usual, the Sayyed was right on the money. The closure of Islam’s third holiest site isn’t just a despicable Zionist crime against the indigenous Palestinian people… it’s an attack on all Muslims. And nothing is going to deter these Jewish supremacist fanatics from engaging in such actions again and again  and again, except armed resistance in the West-Bank-Al-Quds region. The Islamic Republic of Iran, recognizing this to be the sole logical way of disrupting the illegitimate Zionist’s designs on Palestine in general, says it has already started the process of providing the Palestinian Resistance in the aforementioned region with arms. Insha’ALLAH this accelerates and deepens so operations like the one that targeted the deranged terrorist Yehuda Glick become a regularity, as “Israel” understands no language but force. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Israel closes al-Aqsa to all visitors after the shooting of a right-wing rabbi

Egypt to create buffer zone along Gaza border

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The Sisi regime, backed by the Zionists and their shabbos goyim in Washington, continues to prove whose side it is on, despite some what some delusional “anti-imperialists” insist on saying to the contrary. With the deepening of the siege against an already isolated and terrorized Gaza, Sisi and his SCAF gang are reaffirming that they are nothing more than goons of the “Israeli” regime, and beyond that, vomit-inducing anti-Palestinian racists. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Egypt to create buffer zone along Gaza border
