We are constantly told that Israel represents our values and that’s why we must be strong allies. But this is a nation that hides nukes, tortures children, steals neighbouring land, subverts governments around the world, ignores rights, runs Jew only roads, the list is endless…I could go on but I wont bother. The people that support this sometimes go so far as to admit it all – but they say they are left with no choice. It is all in self defence in their warped minds.
People can be totally brainwashed quite easily. What makes a man a fascist? He wasn’t born that way. 95% of the population are under subtle mind control, the perceptions are managed though the education system and various forms of media, including entertainment.
IF you listen to them, they say Israel offers land for peace…but it is an Orwellian statement as the truth is the opposite – don’t take my word for it – just type Israel Palestine map into Google and it clearly shows Israel has seized most of Palestine’s land. Israel does not want to go back to 1967 borders because it would be required to forfeit a lot of land. They believe they have a right to Palestine’s land and they don’t care how many Palestinian’s they have to kill to get it. If Gingrich becomes president, it is going to get a whole lot worse. He is pretty much willing to do anything Mossad wants. Expect LOTS of war.
Despite what The Guardian do say here…they still don’t even tell the full truth. Dissenting Israeli soldiers tell an even worse story. Palestinian children are ash trays to put out cigarettes on, they are also punching bags and sometimes even just plain hunting game…instead of relying on the London Guardian, go search Youtube.
These people sucked a now bankrupt America dry, but when they become aware of plots to fly planes into towers – they don’t tell America, they send Mossad agents to film it. They didn’t say a word because they wanted it to happen, to push the war agenda forward.
Just type Mossad agents had prior knowledge 911 in Youtube. The agents say it themselves on Israeli TV.
America and much of the west must cut itself loose and say – You are on your own, you should be ok with all those guns, bombs, planes, tanks, missiles and dollars we gave you. That should be enough now. No hard feelings, goodbye.
The room is barely wider than the thin, dirty mattress that covers the floor. Behind a low concrete wall is a squat toilet, the stench from which has no escape in the windowless room. The rough concrete walls deter idle leaning; the constant overhead light inhibits sleep. The delivery of food through a low slit in the door is the only way of marking time, dividing day from night.
This is Cell 36, deep within Al Jalame prison in northern Israel. It is one of a handful of cells where Palestinian children are locked in solitary confinement for days or even weeks. One 16-year-old claimed that he had been kept in Cell 36 for 65 days.
The only escape is to the interrogation room where children are shackled, by hands and feet, to a chair while being questioned, sometimes for hours.
Most are accused of throwing stones at soldiers or settlers; some, of flinging molotov cocktails; a few, of more serious offences such as links to militant organisations or using weapons. They are also pumped for information about the activities and sympathies of their classmates, relatives and neighbours.
At the beginning, nearly all deny the accusations. Most say they are threatened; some report physical violence. Verbal abuse – “You’re a dog, a son of a whore” – is common. Many are exhausted from sleep deprivation. Day after day they are fettered to the chair, then returned to solitary confinement. In the end, many sign confessions that they later say were coerced.
These claims and descriptions come from affidavits given by minors to an international human rights organisation and from interviews conducted by the Guardian. Other cells in Al Jalame and Petah Tikva prisons are also used for solitary confinement, but Cell 36 is the one cited most often in these testimonies.
Between 500 and 700 Palestinian children are arrested by Israeli soldiers each year, mostly accused of throwing stones. Since 2008, Defence for Children International (DCI) has collected sworn testimonies from 426 minors detained in Israel’s military justice system.
Their statements show a pattern of night-time arrests, hands bound with plastic ties, blindfolding, physical and verbal abuse, and threats. About 9% of all those giving affidavits say they were kept in solitary confinement, although there has been a marked increase to 22% in the past six months.
Few parents are told where their children have been taken. Minors are rarely questioned in the presence of a parent, and rarely see a lawyer before or during initial interrogation. Most are detained inside Israel, making family visits very difficult.
