Done for fun but not far from truth
BETHLEHEM, West Bank — Children from Bethlehem’s Aida and Beit Jibrin refugee camps talk to Mondoweiss about their life in the camps. Filmmakers Sheren Khalel and Abed al Qaisi wanted to know exactly how much the children understood about the military occupation going on around them, and how normal they believed their lives were. With their parents permission, Khalel and al Qaisi asked five children from the streets of the two camps what they thought. All of the answers were spontaneous and unrehearsed, and as it turned out, the kids understood — and have experienced — quite a lot.
Many of the children talked about tear gas, soldiers, and being scared of going outside. All of the children have seen family members killed, injured and detained by Israeli forces — as is the life in the occupied West Bank’s many refugee camps. Still, the children have high hopes, telling Mondoweiss they want to be doctors, lawyers and engineers when they grow up.
Israel is losing the ‘Propaganda War’ if this is the best they can do …
Following is the video which attempts to defame the entire left because of the actions of one individual …
The true face of Israel’s radical “human rights” activists – the full report
“Uvda” investigating TV program exposed human rights activists working together with the Palestinian intelligence in order to murder Arab land dealers who are trying to sell land to the Jews.
This is the full report is based on “Ad Kan” investigations – an NGO that is dedicated to expose the true face of Israel’s radical “human rights” organizations and the BDS movement.
Even the infamous war criminal of an ex President claimed today that;
Peres says Arab terror is ‘a protest’
Israel has not done enough to “understand” the reasons behind Palestinian terror, according to former President Shimon Peres. In an interview he gave German magazine Der Spiegel before his recent heart attack, Peres sounded an apologetic note for the Arab terror against Israel.
“This terror is a revolt,” he told the magazine. “Many young people are attracted today by the totalitarianism of terror. What we have in Israel is part of this development – but at the same time it is different. There needs to be two states, but there is only one. This contributes to the fact that young Palestinians are against us. Israel often does not see the real reasons. Israel does not see this as a protest. It sees the killing.”
Israelis needed to put the Palestinian violence “into context,” Peres said, according to the magazine.
Peres also undermined Israel’s accusations that Palestinian Authority (PA) chief Mahmoud Abbas bears responsibility for the terror as the person at the head of the PA’s incitement machine. “Abbas is a very courageous man,” said Peres. “I met him often and negotiated with him directly. He wants peace and he fights terror.”
The only solution, Peres said, was a true two-state solution. “I believe that Israel is in a transitional phase,” said Peres. “I do not think that we will be able to eternally avoid a diplomatic solution, which will be the two-state solution. Nothing else will do.” Netanyahu’s government has been based on trying to have it both ways, said Peres. “Netanyahu has recently proposed a kind of 1.5-state solution during his visit to the United States: a demilitarized Palestinian state, which is further controlled by the Israeli military. That is not acceptable. The whole world wants a two-state solution.”
Eventually – when Netanyahu leaves office – that is what will take place, said Peres. “Governments are not elected for eternity. They are temporary. The only eternal person is the Messiah and has not yet come.”
In defense of Israel, Peres said that Jewish extremism is a limited phenomenon. “How many people are we talking about? Very few,” he argued. “The perpetrators of the arson attack on a Palestinian family in Duma have now been apprehended and brought to justice. We combat this phenomenon.”
As this video demonstrates, live fire amounts to an enjoyable blood sport for the Israelis charged with enforcing the occupation.
Israeli soldiers praise each other for shooting Palestinians
Amid escalating violence, the number of Palestinian children held in Israeli military detention is now the highest since April 2010. At the end of October, 307 Palestinian children were imprisoned in the Israeli military detention system. From the moment of arrest, these children encounter ill-treatment and in some cases torture at the hands of Israeli forces.
This video shows a group of Israelis from the Kiryat Arba settlement “playing hate songs through a loud speaker to residents of the Hebron neighborhood of Jabal Johar.
Israeli settlers blast “Muhammad is dead” song at Palestinians
This song cycle with images encapsulates modern Holy Land history and imperial machinations, with attention to varying Jewish and Palestinian views on Israel and the struggle for Palestinian survival and sovereignty. The piece was produced in 2005, the visuals re-mixed in 2015. The journals that were the basis of the text are at
Watch as Netanyahu publicly asserts that Adolf Hitler had no intention of exterminating Europe’s Jews until a Palestinian persuaded him to do it.
Just one of the many lies in the following video
(Which, BTW, were refuted by historians and politicians)

RECENT VIDEOS ~~ A GLIMPSE AT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PALESTINE TODAY
Nabi Saleh on Friday saw a remarkable confrontation when an Israeli occupation soldier tried to kidnap a child (with arm in cast after an earlier attack on him ended up with a broken arm) but his family came to his aid and freed him. Watch these remarkable videos:
This is not the first time family members stick together. Ahed and her younger brother challenged Israeli soldiers who kidnapped their older brother earlier (the other older girl is cousin Marah Tamimi)
The Tamimi children of course are like any other children interested in living their lives on their land and having access to their water spring things denied to them by a brutal colonial racist occupation.

Video of Jerusalem gay couple makes headlines worldwide
A Ynet video of two gay men walking the streets of Jerusalem and absorbing abuse from passers by has generated attention around the world, raising questions about Israel’s acceptance of LGBT people.
Gay couple walks Jerusalem streets
The recently published Ynet video clip, showing two gay men walking hand-in-hand in the streets of Jerusalem and being stared at and showered with curses and obscenities, has been generating interest around the world.
Even inside Israel, widely considered to be the most tolerant Middle East nation on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) matters, many expressed shock.
The video, filmed by a concealed camera, shows two men, Shay and Ofir, walking in the heart of Jerusalem – Jaffa Street, the Mahne Yehuda Market, and The Midrahov – just days after the murder of Shira Banki at the city’s gay pride parade. The two men were cursed, and even death was wished upon them by Israelis from various sectors of society.
The video was published on The Huffington Post, one of the most popular news sites in the United States and the world. The article’s headline read, “This Is What It’s Like For Gay Men To Hold Hands In Jerusalem”, with editors mentioning that the clip is reminiscent of the video shot a few months ago in Russia, which documented two Russian men being shoved and berated by people as the walked the streets of Moscow.
The Independent mentioned that the Video looks similar to violent videos in Russia and Ukraine, two countries associated with intolerance toward sexual minorities. “One of the pair has a pony tail and both are wearing vests, but they only give a mild display of affection,” the report emphasized.
The British newspaper cast doubt on Israel’s image as an Island of tolerance in the region, writing, “Israel is widely perceived to be one of the most tolerant countries in the Middle East. However a survey in 2013 suggested that only 40 per cent of Israelis think LGBT people should be accepted.”
The British tabloid Mirror titled their story on the subject, “Footage displaying the shocking level of homophobia in Jerusalem.” Like others, Mirror tried to analyze the obscenities that were hurled at the couple on Jerusalem’s streets. “Israel is one of the only countries in the Middle East to have openly gay communities and the gay pride event in relatively secular Tel Aviv usually passes without incident,” they wrote. “But in conservative Jerusalem, attitudes are not as liberal.”
The Video was also published on Jewish news sites and LGBT-related news sites around the world.

Jerusalem Gay Pride Stabber To Be Transferred to Psychiatric Ward
Yishai Schlissel, who stabbed six marchers at the annual Jerusalem gay pride parade, will be admitted to a hospital psychiatric ward.
The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday ordered Schlissel’s transfer to a psychiatric institution and extended his police custody by 10 days. During his 48-hour stay in the psychiatric ward, doctors will observe Schlissel and determine his fitness to stand trial, the Hebrew-language news website Ynet reported. An examination ordered last week failed to arrive at a conclusion.
Schlissel, from Modiin Ilit in the West Bank, declined to be represented by an attorney and has refused to recognize the court’s authority.
He had been released from prison three weeks before the July 30 stabbings, which left a 16-year-old girl dead, after serving 10 years for a similar attack at Jerusalem’s 2005 gay pride parade.
