Only Three Words Needed On the 69th Nakba Day: Death To ‘Israel’

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

After 69 years of Nakba in Palestine; after 69 years of destruction, from the 531 villages, towns and cities eviscerated during the Zionist terror gangs’ Plan D to the ongoing IOF demolitions of homes and infrastructures in the West Bank and sacred Al-Quds; after 69 years of mass murder, from the 10,000 martyrs in 1947-1948 to the ritualistic slaughter of over 2,200 Palestinians including more than 500 children in Operation Mighty Cliff (Protective Edge); after 69 years of environmental ruination that didn’t make the “desert bloom” but rather made the God-blessed, green paradise that Palestine was into an industrialized nightmare, from the uprooting, burning and destroying of olive trees, to the poisoning of wells, to the drying up of bodies of water, to the contamination of soil and air from the illegal nuclear weapons program in Dimona; after 69 years of devilish destabilization through the arming and backing of ethno-sectarian proxies, from the Kurdish Barzani mafia in Iraq in the 1950s, to the Phalangists in Lebanon during the Zionist-engineered Lebanese “Civil” War, to the Takfiri terrorists wreaking havoc across our region today; after 69 years of ethnic cleansing and expansionism that have turned 7.5 million Palestinians into refugees; after 69 years of hateful Jewish supremacist aggression against the sanctities of Islam and Christianity; after 69 years of Zionism manifesting as a “state”, and after 133 some odd years of Jewish colonization in the Holy Land, there are only three words that properly encapsulate our pain, our sadness and our rage: DEATH TO ‘ISRAEL’.

Zionist Political Theater: New UN “Anti-Settlements” Resolution Is A Massive Farce

by Jonathan Azaziah

Anyone who thinks that the resolution just passed at the UN Security Council “against” the usurping Zionist entity is a good thing, really needs to wake up and smell the malignant Jewish supremacist tumor. Because if anyone actually *****READ***** the piece-of-shit resolution–yes, piece-of-shit is what it should be labeled as, for it is the most academically and intellectually accurate phrase available–then they would know it is a document which upholds the existence of ‘Israel’ as wholly legitimate (and not criminal) and outright calls for the disarmament and dismantlement of the Palestinian Resistance under the guise of the prevention of terrorism. When it comes to anything and everything related to the criminal Zionist regime, one mustn’t pay attention to the lollygagging that unfolds in the public eye between American politicians and “Tel Aviv” officials. This is nothing but political theater. One must read between the lines, look at the global picture with a 360-degree view, follow the money and remember the golden rule vis-a-vis the UN and ‘Israel’: Not a damn thing has ever been enforced and not a damn thing ever will be enforced.

Black-Hating ‘Israeli’ Rabbi Practices Circumcision On African Refugee Babies And Calls It “Holy Work”

by Jonathan Azaziah

‘Israelis’ really are the filthiest, most deplorable creatures on the face of this planet, aren’t they? War criminal, terrorist and baby-killer Menachem Begin infamously referred to Palestinians as “beasts walking on two legs” but as the case is with most of the vileness the Jewish supremacist cancer and its stalwarts accuse Arabs, Muslims and Gentiles of, he is projecting. It is in fact the ‘Israelis’ who are the “beasts walking on two legs” and the following revelation is the umpteenth confirmation of it. Rabbi Eliyahu Asulin, a mohel–i.e. Jewish circumcision practitioner–“from” the criminal settlement called Hadera (one of the earliest Zionist colonies), is sending his students around the ’48 lands to PRACTICE circumcision on the children of Ethiopian and Sudanese refugees. According to Asulin himself, he and his motley crew of genital-mutilating monsters have performed thousands of these cuts and he considers it “holy work”. And Asulin has been caught on camera calling African asylum-seekers “cannon fodder” as well as referring to Sudanese specifically as “the worst. They’re as black as natives.” Scariest of all? Asulin isn’t the only rabbinical ravager doing this. There are countless others.

Naksa Day 2016: We Shall Not Be Sad Or Broken But Hopeful

by Jonathan Azaziah

On Naksa Day 2016, 49 years after the Zionist abomination stole the rest of Al-Quds, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip (which has since been liberated though is still besieged), the Egyptian Sinai (which the ‘Israelis’ still control though they dismantled the ‘Yamit’ settlement) and the Syrian Golan Heights (which Syria regained a part of in the ’73 October War), I am going to refrain from thinking about the hundreds of thousands of refugees brought about by this Zionist aggression, the tens of thousands of innocents murdered, the hundreds of destroyed Palestinian and Syrian villages, the new hideous Jewish colonies that have been constructed and every other monstrosity inextricably linked to the criminal ‘Israeli’ entity’s putrefying presence. Though it is indeed the “day of the setback”, I am going to try with every fiber of my being not to dwell on the sadness, the tragedies, the shattered hearts and the broken dreams, for if we stay in that dark space, we shall be swallowed.

Who Are the Starving and Besieged Residents of Yarmouk and Why Are They There?

by Paul Larudee, Dissident Voice

There are many illusions about what is happening to the Yarmouk district of Damascus and its Palestinian refugee population. The district was originally set aside in 1957 for Palestinian refugees already living there, whom Israel had expelled from their homes in 1948, with periodic additional populations thereafter. Today it is home to around one million Syrians and Palestinians, of whom the Palestinians number roughly 170,000. Palestinians in Syria have all the rights of Syrian citizens except voting, and in Yarmouk their homes are indistinguishable from those of the Syrian residents.

Palestinian Refugee Camps Celebrate Shebaa Retaliation

by Qassem Qassem, Al-Akhbar English

The “beautiful era” is back, the era of qualitative resistance operations against the Israeli enemy. “Abu Ali” could not contain his joy. He distributed cups of juice to pedestrians, as he does every time an operation is carried out in the Palestinian interior. Over the past 10 days, residents of the Shatila Palestinian refugee camp had eagerly waited for Hezbollah’s response to the Quneitra operation. As soon as news about the Shebaa attack started to make the rounds, shots of jubilation were fired into the air. A supporter of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) says: “The body of the resistance is one, from Beirut to Gaza.”

The camp’s alleys are lined with pictures of martyrs from the recent war in Gaza, and others of the perpetrators of the stabbing attacks in Jerusalem. These replaced pictures of Palestinians who were killed in the war in Syria, which indicates a change in the general mood of the camp. Interest in news about Syrian affairs has declined, and the attention has re-shifted to Palestine, most recently the occupied Golan Heights.

Palestine marks 6th anniversary of 2008-9 Israeli assault on Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Palestinians around the world on Saturday commemorated the sixth anniversary of the beginning of Israel’s 22-day offensive on the Gaza Strip in 2008-9 that left more than 1,400 dead.

This year’s commemorations take place in the shadow of another Israeli offensive over summer — the third major assault in six years — that left nearly 2,200 Palestinians dead and 110,000 homeless.

Until this year, the 2008-9 assault was the bloodiest sustained Israeli assault on Palestinians since 1967, with more than 80 percent of victims thought to have been civilians. Continue reading Palestine marks 6th anniversary of 2008-9 Israeli assault on Gaza

Stealing Palestine: Who dragged Palestinians into Syria’s conflict?

by Sharmine Narwani, Russia Today

Palestinians didn’t jump into the fray in Syria. They were dragged into it – violently and reluctantly. Here is the story of how and why Palestinians and their 14 refugee camps became strategic targets in the Battle for Syria.

A small UNRWA van delivers boxes of staple foods to Yarmouk camp residents who wait at a pick-up point. Bread donated by the Syrian government lies atop the boxes.

My first visit to Yarmouk took place a few days after 20 people were killed in the Palestinian camp’s first major shelling incident on August 2, 2012. Residents showed me the damage caused by the first mortar – which hit the roof of a small apartment building not far from Tadamoun, a Damascus suburb where rebels and security forces were clashing daily.

As bystanders rushed to investigate the damage, a second shell hit the narrow street outside where onlookers had congregated, killing and injuring dozens.

Foreign media headlines suggested the Syrian government was shelling Yarmouk, but Palestinians inside expressed doubt. Some said these were rebel mortars from adjacent neighborhoods, but it was clear nobody could provide definitive answers for what may simply have been a series of stray shells.
