WOW!! LATUFF GETS TOP BILLING IN ISRAEL

Political cartoonist Carlos Latuf regularly compares Israel to Nazis, but that didn’t stop Channel 2’s Arad Nir from recommending his work.

Israeli journalist recommends anti-Semitic cartoonist

Arad Nir, Channel 2 News’ foreign affairs editor, on Tuesday recommended to his followers on Twitter that they follow anti-Israel political cartoonist Carlos Latuff.

Nir described Latuff’s caricatures as “sharp” and pointed out that Latuff, “as usual, does not spare anyone.” But for some reason he ignored the anti-Semitic tone in Latuff’s caricatures and the fact that he often compares between Israel and the Nazis in his caricatures.

Latuff won the annual Iran holocaust denial contest in 2006 due to the anti-Israel character of his drawings.

In 2012, it was revealed that Latuff used his artistic abilities to benefit “Occupy AIPAC”, an organization that seeks to de-legitimize Israel and its supporters.

Hanan Amior, editor of the media criticism site Perspective, who revealed Nir’s tweet, said in response on Tuesday, “This is Arad Nir, who compliments anti-Semites who are obsessed with comparing Israel to the Nazis, recommends their works and sucks up to them. The same Arad Nir who announced on the air that he would not send his children to the IDF, and who lied to Channel 2’s viewers when he claimed that the BDS movement is opposed only to the communities in Judea and Samaria.”

“It is amusing to remember that Arad Nir, who grovels before a blatant and extreme anti-Semite, recently accused [President Donald] Trump of surrounding himself with anti-Semites. Channel 2 News viewers should know who presents them with information and who his heroes are,” added Amior.

Nir’s Twitter recommendation did not go unnoticed by Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud), who responded with a sharply worded post on Facebook.

“Sometimes I am asked why I criticize Arad Nir, and I think he provides the answer himself every now and then, like today, when he praises an exhibition of caricatures by an anti-Semitic cartoonist who compares Israel to the Nazis in various ways. A man who won an Iranian Holocaust denial cartoon competition in 2006. ‘Thank you Arad,’ the anti-Semitic cartoonist replies to his warm recommendation. ‘So precise, so sharp, so sad!’ Arad Nir replies,” wrote Erdan.

“This is the same Arad Nir who attacked U.S. President Donald Trump for being surrounded by anti-Semites. How far can the hypocrisy go? Look at the shocking caricature I attached, which is just one example of the horrors created by Arad Nir’s favorite cartoonist, and how the same cartoonist compares IDF soldiers to Nazis who murder children in Lebanon. Arad Nir is the foreign news editor of the most watched newscast in Israel. So why do I criticize him? Because sometimes, silence is slime,” added Erdan.

BLACK FRIDAY TOON

Israel and the PA agreed to cut Gaza’s electric supply by 40%. Now, Gaza residents prepare for the worst.

Majda Tantesh, 42, lives in the Beit Lahia city in the northern Gaza Strip. Like all of Gaza, the city only gets a few hours of electricity a day. After Monday’s Israeli Security Council ruling, approving the Palestinian Authority’s request to cut Gaza’s electricity supply by 40 percent, Majda told Mondoweiss she only expects things to get worse.

Majda, who has American citizenship, moved back to Gaza in 2009 to be closer to her family and loved ones. When she first moved back to the enclave, they were getting around eight hours of electricity a day. During the past eight years that number has been cut in half.

“We get around four hours of electricity a day now, but still even when the electricity is working, it cuts every half hour for ten to thirty minutes,” she said. “It’s very hard because it’s summer now and so hot here. We need air conditioning, we need fans, we need the refrigerator — we’re always throwing away food because there is no electricity. Our food is constantly going bad and I have to throw it out.”

Earlier this month, Mondoweiss received leaked documents detailing the correspondence between the PA’s Minister of Finance and Planning, Shukry Bishara and Israel’s Minister of Finance, Moshe Kahlon.On Monday Israel’s security cabinet approved the PA’s request to cut Gaza’s electric supply by 40 percent, meaning even shorter periods of electricity for the citizens who have been suffering the devastating effects of a ten-year blockade implemented by the Israeli and Egyptian governments after Hamas won elections in 2007.

In the letters, Bishara requested that the electric supply, controlled by Israel and paid for by the PA, not be allowed to exceed 25 million shekels ($7.1 million), which will mean a 40 percent cut in Gaza’s electricity.

“The parties responsible for the collection of electricity dues in the Gaza Strip have systematically failed to reimburse the PA for the cost incurred on their behalf,” the PA minister wrote. “Accordingly, it should be clear to all concerned [parties] that we have reached a stage where this state of affairs is no longer acceptable.”

In the letter, dated May 15, the PA minister asked for the cuts to be implemented within the week. So far the cuts have not yet been implemented, but are expected to incur in the very near future.

The electricity cuts comes amid failed attempts of unity talks between the Fatah-led PA government and the Hamas-led Gazan government. While the Palestinian people feel united across Gaza and the West Bank, the divisions between the two rival political parties are about to make life for the 2 million people in Gaza even more desperate.

“Everyone is feeling bad here, and expecting more bad to come with the current political situation going on now. It’s a very hard situation,” Majda told Mondoweiss. “It is already hard and it will soon become much worse. I am thinking to try and buy solar panels to store the electricity because we can’t live without it. We need electricity for our daily life. My daughter goes to college and she needs to use the computer to make reports. We barely have enough time with power to charge our phones as it is.”

While Majda hopes to try and get solar panels, she said that as the cuts get worse, demand for such technology will go up, hiking prices and making solar panels harder to find, since the panels must be shipped through the blockaded borders.

In addition to the small scale effects of the power cuts, Gaza is already suffering from lack of power for its water and sewage systems, which are paralyzed without electricity, and result in raw sewage being dumped straight into the Mediterranean coast.

Last month, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, warned that the cuts would end up “plunging [Gaza’s] population into a spiral of a humanitarian catastrophe.”

“The power plant, that supplies 30 percent of Gaza’s electricity, stopped functioning on 16 April, due to a dispute between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas over taxation on fuel,” Mladenov said in a statement. “The lines supplying power from Egypt into Gaza are often down for technical reasons. This leaves Israeli power lines, which provide some 60 percent of Gaza’s electricity, as the only reliable energy source. Meanwhile the Palestinian Government has decided to cap its purchase of electricity from Israel for Gaza.”

Israeli rights group B’Tselem on Tuesday decried the power cuts, and called on Israel not to “shirk” its responsibilities in the Strip.

“Despite [the] intolerable reality [in Gaza], the Israeli cabinet has decided to accept the Palestinian Authority’s cruel plan to further reduce the power supply to Gaza. Should the Israeli decision be implemented, the situation in Gaza will deteriorate even further, making the area virtually unlivable,” the group said.

“This is not some sort of natural disaster. Had that been the case, Israel would have likely sent in a humanitarian aid mission. Instead, the reality in Gaza is the result of Israel’s handiwork, achieved by its decade-long implementation of a brutal policy. Israel can, and must, change this reality.”

As rights groups are predicting catastrophe the people of Gaza are worried, but Majda said they are also hopeful.

“It’s going to be scary situation, but here people when people talk about it they are hopeful,” she said. “We say God willing things will get better — there’s nothing else we can do about it.”

Remembering the Nakba

Seventy years on from the Nakba, Palestinians seem to move from one cycle of oppression to another

A Palestinian man walks front of graffiti that reads “Returning” as Palestinians attend “camp of return” to mark refugees’ ties to lands lost in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, during a gathering to mark the 69th anniversary of the “Nakba” (catastrophe). Nakba means “catastrophe” in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 69 years ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel’s creation.Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib / Flash 90

ISRAEL via YOUTUBE TRIES TO UNDERMINE PALESTINIAN HUNGER STRIKE

Zion’s mantra has always been “If the truth is hard to swallow, LIE!”

Following is their latest attempt, via YouTube, to undermine the heroic hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners and their leader, Marwan Barghouti.

What I see in the following video could be any man, anyplace, at any time going to the bathroom in what looks like a prison cell …..

BUT

Here is how the zionists describe the following ….

Arch-terrorist and mass-murderer Marwan Barghouti, who has led a hunger strike by jailed terrorists held in Israeli prisons, has been eating in secret while maintaining the pretenses of his own hunger strike, footage released Sunday reveals.

Here is the reality of the hunger strike via the pen of Carlos Latuff ….

Here is what the wife of Marwan Barghouti had to say about the situation … (FROM)

Barghouti’s wife: ‘Recordings of Marwan breaking the strike are fake’
*
‘Fabricated,’ ‘despicable,’ and a ‘low point’ for Israel were the terms employed by Fadwa Barghouti—the wife of Marwan Barghouti—to describe recordings released by the Israel Prison Service allegedly showing her husband breaking his hunger strike in secret; says act is a sign of the beginning of Israel’s downfall.

Fadwa Barghouti, the wife of Marwan Barghouti, claimed on Sunday that the recordings of her husband secretly breaking his hunger strike, filmed and released by the Israel Prison Service (IPS), are fabricated and fake.

Marwan Barghouti was recorded on security cameras in his cell secretly breaking his hunger strike by eating, among other things, cookies and salted snacks.

Speaking at a press conference in Ramallah, Barghouti denounced the publication of the video as a “low” act by Israel that teaches about “the defeat of the occupation” in dealing with the hunger strike and was proof of the “weakness” that Israel is demonstrating against the prisoners’ determination.

“The prisoners are familiar with Israel’s lies and games and the video they released signals the beginning of its fall,” said Fadwa, adding that the Palestinian people are likely to pick up on these “despicable” methods after 70 years of oppression.

She summarized by saying that this video will only strengthen the prisoners’ resolve to continue the strike.

The footage of Marwan breaking the strike was presented by Minister of Public Security, Strategic Affairs and Minister of Information Gilad Erdan during a press conference.

Erdan claimed that the prisoners’ conditions, over which they allegedly launched their hunger strike, were not the real reasons behind it.

“The Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike has nothing to do with their prison conditions, and everything to do with the political interest of Marwan Barghouti,” said Erdan during the press conference on Sunday, as the strike reached its 21st day. “Barghouti is a murderer and hypocrite who urged his fellow prisoners to strike and suffer while he ate behind their back.”

It is not the first time Barghouti has been caught red-handed sneaking a snack in the midst of a hunger strike. In 2004, Barghouti was filmed secretly breaking his strike, which was also launched by security prisoners.
